WENTWORTH. September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

WEXTWORTH. [From our own Correspondent.] September 30. The Darling mail reports a rise in the rivar of four feet at Fort Bourke, but falling above that. The Lady Augusta, Maranoa, Moolgewanke, and Teviot steamers started from Winteriga Station, on Saturday the 22nd, for Mount Murchison, but I feel confident that the four feet rise will not allow them to proceed further than Tintiuallagy Station, on account of a reef of rocks near there. The Wentworth and Goolwa steamers sail to-morrow (1st October) up the Darling. Shearing is being carried on all around, but shearers are scarce. October 6. The last intelligence which I received from private sources and sent to you has been confirmed. The reported rise at Fort Bourke has not been sufficient to cause any rise in the lower river. Until there is a further rise, which at present there is no news of, the Darling will be unnavigable. Tbe Kennedy, steamer, landed her cargo on the bauks, about 30 miles by land from here. The Warrcgo, althoug...

THE DARLING. October 1. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

THE DARLING. [ From our own Correspondent.] October 1. The sale of 100 allotments in the township of Wilcannia, on September 25th and 26th, was well attended, all tLe lots offered being sold at high pricrs. . Baker the horse stealer, from Adelaide, was followed and captured at Mount Murchison, by a trooper from the Overland Corner. He slipped the liandcuffs and escaped, but was retaken bv the police from Menindie, and is now on his way down the Darling in safe custody. September 30. The steamer Teviot arrived at Wilcannia with cargo for Ayre and Martin ; she dis charges here, and returns with a light freight of wool from the Mount Murchison Station, the low state of the river not allowing of her filling up. The steamer Moolgewanke, Maranoa, and Lady Augusta, are all clo=e at hand trying to get up, but it is doubtful if any of them will reach here now, as the river is falling again, and no word of any further rise behind it. The river only rose 18 inches here from the re parted four ...

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, 11th October. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent I Adelaide, 11th October. Adelaide is rejoicing over the English in telligence. Never before by one mail did so much news of a cheering character come to South Australia. Peace in Europe, discount 5 per cent., wool firm, copper risen ; every thing in fact for which we could; hope is granted us. It is too soon to say much of the positive effects of the news in stimulating business, but the relief from anxiety and the restoration of commercial confidenceare already apparent. Prices are maintained, and persons that werercstiBgon their oars, are again inclined to do business. The Government have an nounced that they will not withdraw their balances from the Banks suddenly, and this fact,, with the change in money matters in England, will probably induce the Banks to be more liberal with their customers. The 4th of the month passed over without the collapses that were feared, and the whole aspect of commercial affairs has improved. The late cop...

ANOTHER SCRAMBLE FOR THE LOAVES AND FISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

ANOTHER SCRAMBLE FOR THE LOAVES AND FISHES. The Honorable Thomas Reynolds is cer tainly the bete nn'ir of Ministries of which he is not a member, not to say of those dis tinguished by his co-operation. Peace on the Treasury Benches or contentment on the less inviting seats of Opposition are his especial antipathv. The latter quality Ue has never illustrateda and never will ; and even when in office himself he has contrived to drift his own and his colleagues' lines into anything but pleasant places. So it seems a perfectly natural sequence that the honorable gentle man should table at least oue avowed crisis motion daring a session in which he is con demned to fix a longing wistful gaze upon Ministerial seats owning other occupants than himself. And were we to say that it is equally natural to him to do so. at the most inopportune moment for his own success the assertion would be amply corroborated by his present action against the Ministry. At no period of the tesnion have the Mini...

The matches, of which a pro gramme appears in our advertising columns, commence on Thursday, the 18th, at 9 a.m., and it is expected they will last over three days.

RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

RUSSIA. Intelligence received at St. Peter?burgh on August 20 from Irkutsk, in SSiberia, stated that 1,000 Polish exiles had revolted in that town and ill-treated their officers, afterwards taking- refuce in the wo^ds. Several Russian soldiers were killed. The Jnvalide JIusse fit the following day states that the whole of the insurgents had been captured, and 35 of their number killed. The report that the insurgents had wounded and maltreated the Russian officers was without foundation. The Russians lost only 5 men. An insurrection was also reported to have taken place at Soukum-K&Ieh, in consequence of a direct levy, of 1axes. A Russian colouel and several officers were killed. The insurgents also set fire to the town.

YANKALILLA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

YANKALILLA. A veritable case of sticking up oceurred in this neighbourhood on Tuesday week last, but particulars did not come to band in time for our last issue. It appears that as Mr. William Dinham was returning home, about 8 o'clock in the evening, a man rushed out from behind the parapet of the Gorge Bridge, and in very polite language ordered him to ' stand.' Mr. Dinbam seeing a formidable stick upreared, instinctively held up hi 3 left arm as a guard, and received a severe blow on the hand and arm; but being in possession of a similar weapon, he gave the villaia a Roland for his Oliver, a well directed blow on the temple sending his adversary sprawling on the ground,, his hat at the same time falling over the bridge. The victor then gave his fallen assailant two or three more taps on the cranium as an ad Jitional inducement to lie quiet, and started off home as fast as his legs could carry him. On returning at daylight the next morning,, strange to say, he found bis name trace...

FINNISS VALE WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL. IFrom onr own Correspondent] The tenth anniversary services of the above Sab bath School was held on Sunday and Monday last On Sunday two excellent sermons were preached by the Rev. T. Edmeades, the minister of the circuit. In the afternoon Mr- Edmeades made a moving ad dress to tbe parents, teachers, and children; and the latter were examined in part of the first and second conft fence cateel i ms, their answe.s beirg for the most part prompt and correct. A number of pieces were recited and hymns sung by the children in a yery creditable manner, indeed I question if better singing has been heard on the part of children in any chapel in the colony. Their proficiency is chiefly 'owing to the exertions of a lady iu the neigh bourhood, who has taken much trouble and pains in their behalf! The ch.apel was crowded in the morning and after noon, hut in the evening, owing io the inclemency of the weather, the attendance was not so large. Monday turned o...

FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 October 1866

FINNISS VALE. The weather during the early part of last week was unusually warm and sultry, and all vegetation seemei languid and scorched, while some of the late sown- crops looked wretched ; but providentially a change has taken place this week, and the country presents a very different appearance. The fruit-trees are in blossom,, and promise well for a good crop. Dairy produce is getting much cheaper, good fresh butter now being obtainable for 9d. and lOd. per 1b. Gold has been discovered a short distance from this place in a quartz reef. The lucky finder proceeded to Adelaide early on Monday to secure the claim. A feige number of quartz reefs exist within a mile or two of the township, and are said to be auriferous. If such be the ease, and there is every proba bility of ha being so, it will give a wonder ful impetus to the prosperity of this, neighbor hood and the district.
