THE PANAMA CANAL.
' Perhaps wc have been a. trillo too
"' unntfuiuc in our expectation of a
' speedy completion of the Panama
Canal. Our public journals and
. home of our ptfblic men have, nt
', different finics, spoken of it as a
i fact sure of accomplishment within
a reasonably short time ; and most
of us have sincerely wished that it
ling'lil be so. lint tho latest intclli
Wgcnco from that quaitcr is not of n
nature, to strengthen our confidence
or .brighten our hope. From the
present outlook it is not nt nil im
possible that the Panama Canal may
'bo ultimately abandoned and num
bered among tho great unfinished en
terprises of mankind. The fact Hint
the same skillful engineer who de
signed nnd completed "the Suez Canal
lias' nlso undertaken to construct the
Pnunma Canal inspires the woiid
,! with a measure of confidence that
might otherwise have been wanting.
.', .But M. dc Lcsscps finds himself
t confronted with obstacles at Panama
more dilllcult to surmount than any
""encountered at Suez. In the East
' he had to deal with sand, in tiic
.' ."West he lias to battle with solid
,,. rock: in tho fust instance ho had
abundance of labor near at hand, in
tlie present undertaking he has no
" labor but what is brought from long
distances. Another and a very
'serious 'difficulty at Panama is tho
"pestilential riaturo of the climntc. In
."'the, short space of one week the
Canal Company icccntly lost nine
Tdih"oers, including two of their best
''engineers, nnd great numbers of un-
' bkflfcd laborers. Not only has the
actual working force been greatly
i weakened, but fear of meeting a
shnilar fata deters others stepping
" ilto their places. Besides nil this,
'llie earthquake which a short time
'"ago destroyed the Panama Kail way
has led many people to sec tlint the
same cause may Some day endanger
the safety of the great dam, which is
one of the main features of de Lcs
scps' scheme. Altogether, the latest
aspect of matters is by no means
tS hope-inspiring, and the prospect' of
the enterprise falling through is not
eo remote ns we could desire.

out for that race, for tho sum of

thereto that under the circumstances
which tendered necessary the change
in the ciew of the Milia, the parti

for mo to request the gentlemen who

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CORRES-
Ann ii)B, ,Oct.'27, 1882. .
South Australia, which .depends
ehielly on wheat-growing for its
prosperity, may bo said to have been,
during the past month, on the pin
nacle of anxiety, owihg to the hot
winds which have been for days in
succession swcepiiig over the coun
try nnd endangering the growing
crops. At length splendid rains have
fallen, and there is a prospect of n
moderate yield: but in some light
land the crops liayc entirely dried
up, Perhaps (his "temporary mis
fortune may cause many of our
"agriculturalists to turn their atten
tion to Bomelhitig besides wheat
growing. It is not creditable to tho
colony to have to import thousands
of pounds' worth of dairy produco
annually, while pasture land is so
Tlieic is still a mnnla in tills city
for land. Suburban township after
township lias been surveyed and
sold, at high prices, in quick succes
sion, ami svii tuero is uomniui.
Villages arc rising like mushrooms in
all directions. The population in
and near the metropolis lias doubled
in nbout ten years.
The attention of tho Parlinmcni
now sitting is engrossed with railway
extension. A bill is now being dis
cussed, which lias the object of con
necting our capital with that of
Victoria. The second reading was
passed with x large majority, but
the opponents of the scheme aic
gathering all their strength to throw
out the measure on its third reading.
The measure is a Government one,
and ninny arc opposing it because of
its being introduced so 'late in the
hcssion. Otlieis would prefer seeing
a line carried to Wcntwortli, to con
nect with New South "Wales at that
point; while some would rather con
sider the matter next session, after
alternate routes are surveyed. Tho
bill under discussion provides for
continuing the line that is now being
constructed to Nairnc and ,3Iount
Parker, by tho way of Cnllington,
thence across the Murray bridge
above 'Wellington, and meeting tho
Victorian terminus ncarUordortown.
The estimated cost is about one mil
lion sterling, or about live millions
This is a gigautic undertaking for
our young colony. The advantages
accruing to us would be undoubted
ly inniiy, yet connecting Adelaide
with a city live times its bjzo i
doubtful policy, in n commercial
point ibf view'. Probably tins adjoin
ing co'ony would gain far rnoc than
our own. '
