PORT VICTOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

PORT VICTOR. [Reported for this paper by our Port Victor Correspondent.] On Monday, 10th instant, a public meeting of the ratepayers of Encounter Bay District was held at the Crown Inn, Port Victor. Mr. J. Grimble, Chairman District Council, in the chair. The Chairman stated that considering the distress through the failure of the crops, the Council intended to ask the ratepayers for a rate of only 6d. in the pound, and would have been glad to have asked for even less, but that on account - of the heavy legal expenses in connection with the lawsuit pending lijioya . v. xustcmk vjouncii;, ana seeing aiso that-some places in the Encounter Bay and Port Victor Wards wanted repairs so badly, they could not do with less than 6d. in the pound. Mr. Jolly moved as an amendment, ' That the rate be 3d. in the pound,' but this was not seconded. Mr. Lloyd moved, ' That the Council should be left to put on what rate they actually needed.' Seconded by Mr. J. Lush. Upon being put to the meeting the...

SIR DOMINICK DALY. IN MEMORIAM. I. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SIR DOMINICK DALY. IN MEMORIAM. L Empty his place, we ne'er shall see him more, His hard day's work is done, and now at rest He sleeps beyond the dark and unknown shore, As sleeps the infant on its mother's breast. Prndent and kind and brave, he won esteem : For his work's sake we honored the old man ; And he is gone — it seemeth like a dream — But still we murmer not ; he lived life's span. His many labors past, Rest sweetly came at last ; The sands of life from out the hour-glass ran. n. But six short years he dwelt amongst us here, Lived down blind prejudice, made friends of all ; And surely gathered round him year by year True hearts that now weep o'er the sable pall Which bides him from their sight — weep, for they know His pleasant face they sha1! not see again : For this the sigh is breathed, the salt tears flow, And brave men bravely struggle 'gainst their pain. But pain is his no more, His troubles all are o'er. The loss is ours, alas ! but his the gain. HL Nobly he worked,...

FARMERS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

FARMERS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. ,We have been looking through a long series of letters and telegrams that passed between the Government of New South Wales, and various farmers, Magistrates, and others, in the rural districts of that colony, on the subject of the distribution of seed wheat by that Government in the year 1866. The correspondence fills 65 large folios of print, which strikes us as an apt illustration of 'much! ado about nething.' The whole of the seed wheat distributed by the Governm^ntthrmighout all the districts of the province in' that; yt5&v JaUM.\J\lli.WJL w umj «*,-7j;t* yuauciaj in dicating either a small amount of 'distress, or a very' inadequate; measure of relief.

CITY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

CITY GOSSIP. By a Man about Town. I hear that the Chief Secretary, with his frank bluntness to the deputations who have recently waited upon him anent seed wheat, has given some amount of offence. It is said he has not shown that sympathy for the suffering farmers which was expected from him and his Ministry, and that he curtly snubbed the depu tations that waited upon him. On the other hand I hear that the Chief was not discourteous, but only firm; that as the guardian of the people's purse, he is bound to take every pre caution against the public funds being wasted ; that he has never yet been able to find one dis tressed farmer who wanted seed for himself ; and that if he does happen to meet such a per son, he will have a few short and easy questions to ask him, on the answers to which will depend 4he a tion which the Government will take. I hear that the first of these questions will be something in this form : — ' Who is your landlord ?' The answer will be ' Brown,' * Jones,' '...

ARITHMETICAL QUERIES, PUZZLES, &c. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

V AEITBMTICMi '! QUERIES, . ?.)'? - - PUZZLES* &o. We have received a large number of answers to the questions propounded at the foot of our last batch, which we now proceed to deal with. I.— Br w. p. c. Multiply £19 1%. llfd; by £19 19s. llfd. We have been greatly amused b/ the different views taken of the foregoing. One person says it is a simple impossibility to multiply such amounts ; another says it is 'squaring money,' and money cannot be squared.' Half a dozen, on the contrary, say it is absurdly easy to calculate, and not worth replying to. It is, however, quite clear that those who think it so very easy have fallen into a trap. They calculate the amount in this way : — Reduce each amount into its lowest denomi nation, farthings.- Bach amount will then be 19,199 fai things, which, multiplied together, comes to 368,601,601 farthings. TJbw, divide by 4, by 12, and by 20 to bring into pounds, and we have £383.960 Oa.X%fi. as the answer. But our friends who give this sol...

CORONER'S INQUEST AT ROSEWORTHY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

CORONER'S INQUEST AT ROSE WORTHY. An inquest was held on Moaday, the 17th instant, before Mr. K. J. Turner, S.M., on the body of John Loller, a farmer living at Rose worthy, who had committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor. After the Jury had been empanelled, and the body viewed, the fol lowing evidence was adduced :— Eliza Loller was the wife of the deceased. He was a man of about 44 or 45 years of age. On the previous day (Sunday) he was at home, and very much concerned about a summons he had received on the Saturdav, from Bright, the butcher, at Gawler. He app-ared very greatly disturbed, and said he did not know where to get money to pay into Court. He took nothing to drink but some gingerbeer, there being no other sort in the house. He was much disturbed all the night about the summons. About 6 o'clock that morning he got up, and kept saying he did not know how to get the £6 for which Bright was summoning him. This was the only thing he could talk about. About* 7 o'...

"GETTING CAST." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

' GETTING CAST.' Animals which possess the free use of their limbs are generally capable of lying down and rising again as often as they feel disposed with out difficulty ; but it does nevertheless happen that they occasionally place themselves in such positions that the power to move freely is lost, and, without being under any externally visible restraint, theyjaxe incapacitated from rising. j It has fallen to the lot of most persons to see a sheep on its back, moving its legs and writh ing its body in frantic endeavors to get up ; and instances are common enough of fatal results accruing from the exhausting effects of the pro longed struggles, added to the depressing influ ence of disturbed and partially interrupted respiration. The accident generally happens during the night, or while the shepherd is away, and it is therefore difficult to say how long a time is requirad to produce death ; but pro bably two or three hours will suffice, and -^ if the sheep is excessively fat a sho...

Sporting. THE HORSE IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

Spartaj. THE HORSE IN IRELAND. The Royal Dublin and Royal Agricultural Societies of Ireland represent the two most important and influential associated commu nities in the sister isle. The former embraces in its scope every single detail calculated to advance art, science, and progress in every step, while the latter devotes its consideration to the branch of industry whence it derives jts patro nymic. The wealth, influence, talent, and phi lanthropy of the land are represented by those who constitute the body of each Society. It is gratifying that an ardor to consider the inte rests of the horse in Ireland has of late stimu lated these bodies, and it is satisfactory to reflect that progress has generally attended the results of their support, in whatever directiom it may. have been tendered. At present each body is emulous for the privilege of taking a leading part to promote measures that cerfcaiuly tend to encourage and improve the breed of horses. Each desires to have the honor ...

Trifles of Wit and Humor. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

Ciiflts of SBttit anft Ipari'iu. - — . ? w Men are often treated like barrels — the empty ones stood up, and the full ones laid down. ' I do not say that that man will steal,' said a witness on a trial ; ' but if I was a chicken I'd roost high when he was around.' A man that marries a widow is bound to give up smoking. If she gives up her weeds for him, he should give up his weed for her. The philosopher Bion said pleasantly of the King who by handfuls pulled his hair off his head fur sorrow, ' Does this man think that baldness is a remedy for grief ?' A French writer on gastronomical subjects — a rival of the Baron de Briese — has defined in digestion to be the ' ingratitude of the stomach.'

AGRICULTURAL DISTRESS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

AGRICULTURAL DISTRESS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Many memorials have been presented from farmers who have lost all their ..crops. Many meetings have been held and great pres sure put upon the Government, but from the tenor of the Chief Secretary's replies to several deputations fit is impossible to hope that any ?i thing will be done from Government«ld. Now I consider it an indisputable fact that if farmers are left to their own resources large areas of country will next year be uncropped, that our exports of corn will be much less, and that the amount of money brought into the colony and circulating amongst the masses of the_ people will be much smaller than even in this year. This will be a public calamity, and one to which the whole population should look. The Govermmnt seem to think there is no remedy, but there is no evil which cannot be alleviated, even if a cure be impossible, and I ~would offer the following suggestions for their conside ration : — Let Parliament be called togeth...

TEETOTALISM AND INTEMPERANCE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I' -have read a communicated paper, headed as above, in a recent number of your journal, and have waited hoping that some of the city teetotallers would have replied to it, but as they have not done so I should esteem it a favor if you would find room for this brief notice of the article in question. ' Moderator' admits ' that there are pro bably few countres where intemperance has been carried to greater lengths, or where its evil effects have been more apparent than in Australia.' Discarding teetotalism as a remedy for the evil deplored, he suggests that 'we saek to raise the standard of morality' — a -vague expression, in which there may be very much or very little meaning. The gentleman should hava said what alteration he proposed to make in the 'standard of morality,' and how the change was to be effected. His next suggestion is that 'we seek to extend the benefits of education, and that we provide healthy and rational amusemen...
