THE BARRINGTON GOLDFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

THE BARRINGTON GOLDFIELD. The great crushing of the stone from tlie Mountain Maid, at the Barrington, has been (says the Evening News) the topic of conversation 'on 'Change and throughtout the city during last week. An inmetus to enerations mav be ex pected, as some Sydney capallsts have visited the field, and find it to their ad vantage to invest. Most of the miners appear unable to develop then- holdings and have been compelled to admit the capitalist on very easy terms. News of good returns from the Hidden Treasure are furnished, and it is expected the Mountain Maid crushing will go a little over 6oz to the ton. The reef is looking splendid, and nearly 4ft thick, and some of the claims on both sides are reported to be on gold. On Thursday our corres pondent reported a rich alluvial dis covery, apparently accidentally made. Our correspondent, writing on the 10th instant, says.: — We continue to hear very good reports from the out lying reefs, while matters nearer to us are first r...

SANTA CLAUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

SANTA CLAUS. Santa Clads is in season, and is the chief of saints. It is very odd that very few people know this saint as a proper personage, for as certain German ? and Scandinavian customs have ac quired root hold in this countiy, Santa Claus has become quite familiarised with all good people, and they are so engrossed with the little ones whom the saint blesses that they allow the holy man to linger outside as a conve nient myth. This very useful per sonage is no other than St Nicholas who was archbishop of Myra in 342, aud the name by which he has of late become popular in this country is the German form that came with the German custom of the Christmas tree aud all the rest of it. Tliat we should take up customs of the Fatherland is but proper, seeing we are a German people owning Teutonic origin through Schleswig aud Holstein and the Netherlands and the broken coast line beyond, where the prevailing tone of the people is so thoroughly English that one scarcely is aware of bein...
