ARREST OF MR. DILLON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
ARREST OF MR. DILLON. The arrest of Mr. John Dillon, one of th* members for Tipperary, -has at last bes.i decided on by the British Governmen This news will create but little surpris- : the only wonder being that this etc., was not taken many months ago. Fe -.- persons, of late, have done more i ? embitter the Irish people against t'n . Imperial authorities than Mr. Dillon, a-, t his conduct both in and out of ti. - House or commons stamps h''i it, once as a demagogue and political ag. tator of a low and dangerous typ-. More reckless in his assertions than M.'. Parnell,' and evidently possessed of le-. moral principle than the generality .oE h * ' ~ class, he has recently secured for hims^ic an unenviable notoriety. His extra vaga. . speeches and violent behavior have fou-i t a fitting denouement, and but tew per sons will be found who in any way w.u sympathise with this factious orator . now that, he finds himself 'hi durance vile.' It says a great deal for die leniency of tU autho...
LIFE ASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
LIFE ASSURANCE. Coincident with the march of education and general information has been the atten tion paid to the subject of life assurance, and of the business done in this direction of late years by far the larger proportion has been in connection with mutual, or as they may be called, co-operative life assu rance associations. To show how little was thought of providing for one's family in case of premature death, when the Mutual Provident Societv was set afoot in Svdnev thirty-two years ago, it took over two years to collect in premiums less than £1,000, bat by a continual increase the society has now reached a yearly revenue ef nearly half a mil lion ; nor is this all, for* there are other societies in Sydney and Melbourne, all of which have been 'commenced within the last dozen years, and are now keenly com peting for business, and the aggregate of whose operations equals if it does not surpass that of the earlier association. Despite all that may'be said to the contrary this...

THE IRISH LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
THE IRISH LAND BILL. The Irish Land Bill has. been, as expected, and is likely to be still more so than ever the vexata quccetio for the British Govern ment. Whilst Mr. Gladstone has won his greatest triumphs in domestic legislation, it has not been difficult to foresee that any bold scheme for the settlement of the_ Irish grievances would tax the ability, energy, and patience of the Premier. There is no doubt that the Govemmentacted wiselyin pressing through 4-Tia 'Parliofnanf 4-Via 'Rill Pnr- 4-Tia annnvaDiTfiYi HUU A UL*.J.UUJ.^JLIV liUO JUTAU. I.U1 UAO OUUMWM1WU of agrarian crimes.

Original Articles. THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
#riprcl %tiklt% TTTR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. TflE thirty-first annual report of the Cham ler of Commerce -was read at the yearly meeting held on the 27th nit. The few members present expressed their approval of it, and indeed there was nothing in it to ?which serious exception could be taken. The Chamber very sensibly eschews hypo thetical questions, -and for the most part confines itself to the consideration and ex position of matters having a direct bearing on the trade and commerce of the colony. In this respect it is unlike gimiluT institutions in the old country, the scope of whoss de liberations isapparently illimitable. What is reckoned the inherent flaw of the British Chambers of Commerce, the habitual skipping of special and local grievances and devoting their energies to ques tions usually beyond the range of practical enquiry, cannot be detected in our local chamber. On the contrary much painstaking labor is bestowed on subjects germane to the interests which that body is su...
THE DYSART PEERAGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
THE DYSART PEERAGE. The freaks and fortunes of the Hunting tower family will doubtless form a striking feature in some future edition of the ' Vicissitudes of the British Peerage,' and not the least interesting of the episodes will be those that relate to the amours of the Hou. W. Felix Lionel Tollemache, who lately bore the title of Lard Huntingtower, and wbo if he lived would have been Earl of Dysart. The case of disputed succession which has lately been decided by the Com mittee of Privileges of the House of Lords presents in one aspect of it one of the com monest stories of man's deceitfulness and woman'sf oily, and in another aspect it has all the elements of -a romance involving status, property, and rank, in -wMch a sensationalist novel-reader delights to revel. The pro ceedings were instituted to oust the pre sent Larl of Dyeart from his tide and estates, and to succeed in this it was neces sary to prove that his mother's marriage was illegal and himself a bastard. The late ...
ELECTION EXPENSES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
ELECTION EXPENSES. Now that the elections throughout the colony are over, the various candidates who offertd their services to the country and tried, successfully or otherwise, to win the confidence of the constituencies, will begin the interesting occupation of counting the cost. Such of the candidates as have managed to secure their return to Parlia ment win. uu uuuui/, ud iii u iiiuuu utfimr frame of mind, and therefore will more readily prepare to discharge their liabilities than others less fortunate. Parliamentary expenses in this colony, however, are pretty nearly confined to advertisements, circulars, sometimes canvassers, and occasionally secre taries, and not infrequently cab-hire. Tiiese items have, in some contests for sena torial honors, mounted up altogether to large sums, stated at from £1,000 to £3,000, but we believe the expenditure has not beep eo heavy on account of the Council election just over, and at no time since the establishment of oar pre sent constitution...
TRICHINIASIS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
TRICHINIASIS. Most of us can recollect the youthful horror with which we first viewed through a microscope the teeming insect life con tained in a drop of water, and the dread with which for a long time afterwards we thought of the deadly struggle which might be going on within us after every copious draught of the unfiUered fluid. With somewhat similar feelings we read in our nmturer years of the manifold adulterations with which our favorite viands are ad mixed, ana ot tne strange diseases whictr affect our food supplies, and render them dangerous to life and health. We remem ber how Sancho Panza, when he entered on his government, had his sight regaled with a splendid banquet of which he was forbidden to partake by the Court physician, whose duty ii was to 'let him eat what was most proper for him, and to remove from him whatever he imagined would do him harm, or be hurtful to his stomach.' What with the tricks of rascally tradesmen on the one hand and the epidemics which have 'a...
PRESIDENT GARFIELD'S ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
PRESIDENT GARFTELD'S ADDRESS. Onukb a hereditary monarch the Presi dent of the United States is always the choice of party. He is the rallying centre of the stronger political combination of the day, though it may chance, as in the case of Mr. Hayes, that he is enabled to usurp the position which the popular voice had conferred upon another. When thii happens the elective principle is discredited. It is fortunate that President Garfield can not be said to owe his elevation to fraud or stratagem. He is emphatically the elect of the people. To them he belongs by origin, habitude, and sympathy, and from them he will derive the support needful to sustain him in upholding the character and indepen dence of his exalted office. Although a man of culture and refined tastes he has for nigh a quarter of a century thrown himself into the turmoil of American poli tics. Had he chosen otherwise and pre ferred the vita umbratica he might have become a writer of some distinction, as he is already a...
GARDENING NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
GARDENING NOTES AND NEWS. The collection of Chrysanthemums now in flower in the Botanic Garden is a very extensive one, probably one of the largest extant, since so few of the older varieties have been discarded, whilst there have been constant additions of the novelties of recent years. Chrysanthemums are the queens of autumn flowering plants, while they are as easily cultivated as the pro veruiai weeu. ix coiiecLiou ul a tew uuu dred varieties is now easily acquired, but a few, comparatively speaking, will b3 suf ficient for a small garden.' Twelve good and well-selected varieties will make a small garden look gay for six weeks or xuoie at a dull season, and these caa ba purchased from a nurservmaa, true to name, for as many suilliugs. No other plants are so amenable to cood treatment as Chrysanthemums. They will improve on good feeding and care as much as a herd of swine. Fine foliage, fine flowers, large and fleshy in substance, with, clear, bright, and pure colors, can only be ...

GARDENING NUTKS FOR MAY. Kitchfn Gahdkn. — If the slugs are not too numerous, the success of gardening in : this department seems secure enough at present. Moist ground, warm nights and , warm days, with scarcely any violent wind, ; are the conditions eminently favorable to f progress and success. Seeds sown at this t teason germinate very soon, ana trans- l. planted stuff goes to work immediately if - operations have been carried out carefully [ and quickly.
