WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870

WATERVALE. (FBOM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 10. A sad and fatal accident of an unusual kind in a non-mining district has occurred at Lea gingham. One Joseph Denning, being out of work, was employing his time in deepeningthe well on the little property of which he bad just completed the purchase. At about seven o'clock on Wednesday morning his wife, assisted by a boy, lowered him into the well, which is 36 feet deep, and the poor woman then returned to the house for a cup of tea "to give her strength to pull him up again.*1 Having been absent four or five minutes, her attention was called by the children, who said the M could not make father speak." An alarm was at once given, and Mr. M'ftitchie, a neighbor, was lowered in great haste, but had only time to feel the man lying cn his face before he was obliged to be hauled up, and came to the sur face almost suffocated. The horrid truth then bunt upon those around that there was foul air in the well. Candles were immediately lowe...

KOORINGA. (FROM OUR OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.) February 8. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870

KOORINGA. (FBOH OUfi OCCASIONAL COBBE8PONDENT.) February 8. The country between here and the neighbor hood of Mount Bryan is looking quite fresh after tbe late heavy rains, and the grass is springing up in abundance ; but if more rain does not descend shortly it will probably be burnt up by the excessive heat of the suo. A large number of snakes were brought down by the rain last month, having been washed out of the guliies, and a great many were killed alongside of the road. I hear of one man slaughtering no less than 36, which, however unlikely it may seem to persons unacquainted with the locality, does not appear at all im probable to the inhabitants of the district, who are aware of the large number of reptiles in the hills. There is not much news from the Ulooloo diggings, although I believe there are a number of men still working there. There is a report current of a find abont four miles distant from the Ulooloo, but I have been unable to obtain any reliable information respe...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 February 1870

MISCELLANEOUS. CALIFOBSIan STATISTICS.-The San Fran cisco Market Review for the 8th of October last contains some interesting fact* and figures bearing upon the prospects and progress of California. It estimates that the wheat crop for 1869 will be not lees than 20,000,000 bushels, while that of the State of Minnesota will be fuily equal to this amount. The exports of the pre cious metals for the first nice months of the past year were of the value of £6,000 000 sterling, and the other exports £3,000,000. It is a significant fact that California does a greater trade by upwards of one-fourth with Great Britain, than with the Atlantic States of America. (c The decrease of eight millions in our treasure shipments to New York," observes the Market Review, " and the increase of over five and a half millions to England, demonstrates that we are doing our trade with the latter more directly, instead of importing British goods via New York, Reference to the value of ourmerchandise exports t...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 February 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. A valued correspondent sends us the fol lowing extract from a letter received front a friend of his who lives in the immediate locality of the now famous Blumberg goldfields, the truthfulness of which account we have no doubt of"If you should have heard of this really grand gold discovery, you may think a friend Keeps that to himself; but should you have heard nothing yet, then I have to inform you that a certain person, Herrn Rufchok, residing two and a half or three miles from Blumberg, found a quartz reef equal to any in Victoria or New Zealand. I have had myself from eight to ten pieces of quartz in my own hand as full of gold as a plum pudding with raisins or prunes. Another piece was bought by the storekeeper Pflawn, who has paid £36 for it. The excitement here is very great, but the people are so ignorant as not to appreciate it; they leave that to more intelligent persons, who are arriving from town and other places in g**eat numbers.

PAR NORTH. OUB OWN COBBS8POKDENT.) Straagway's Springs, Jan. 30. In this arid, but nevertheless salubrious, part of the globe we generally anticipate hut and windy weather, and we have had it to perfec tion of late. On some days the hot winds and dust have been almost unbearable, and the ex cessive sultriness of others has been equally in tolerable. The weather has, however, changed without melting us completely, and we have been favored with something like 30 hours rain, the first 12 of which was steady and came from the north-east; after that it came down rapidly, continuing throughout the whole of one night. On the following morning it ceased, and the creeks were soon filled to overflowing. In the night the wind suddenly veered to the north west, bringing with it a smart shower of an hour's duration. By this time the sable gentle men of this neighborhood-who have an idea that they can command the wind and rain feeling a great disinclination for any more of the watery element, com...
