Accordingly, at night the coffin contatnmg the body was placed on trestles in the middle of the room, plenty of spirits were provided and placed on a table at the head with pipes and tobacco' ia abundance - at the foot. The room was lit up with candles, till everything was as light as day, and an odl woman seated at the foot, of the coffin kept up an unearthly yell throughout the evenings Towards ten © clock, about sixty thieves and prostitutes of the lowest class assembled an the room, and commenced drinking and smoking,,; which finally ended ki a regular melee, in which the cof&n was upset, and black eyes and: broken, nosea wer...
SCENIC GEOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
SCENIC GEOLOGY. Nothing so highly increases the inte rest of a tour in all countries as a knowledge of what is termed physical geology, and what might be more ap propriately for our present purpose, called scenic geology. To thoae^who have pedestrianised far4 and ^dssession and exercise of.£his-l^^ ledge has occasioned the hj ghest intel liectual pleasure, and has often reclaimed tjhe wildest and most desolate Wastes from weariness to the eye arid the fbotf Scenic geplogy, as we shall name it, literally makes-, the wilderness to blos som as the rose, for it sees' flowers of fancy, and speculation even on monoto nous moors and rootless sands. It demands the cause-the original pro ducer-of all the outlines and shapes and directions of mountains and mounds, of valleys and depths, of escarpments and hollows, of hillside and wayside boulders and blocks, and even of pebble heaps and gravels, which the ever ob servant traveller meets with in the remoter parts of our island, and of other is...

POLICE COURT-AUBURN. HOBDAY, FEB. 21. [Before P. MACNAMARA, Esq., J.P.] SHOOTING WITH INTENT. James Owen was charged, on remand, with shooting at Cornelius Britt, with intent to kill and murder. The unfortunate man Britt appeared in Court with his chin bandaged with a thick cloth, and with difficulty could articu* late. The following is his account* of the affray: Cornelius Britt deposed-I am a farmer. I remember the night of the 5th instant. I know the prisoner. I was at his house on the 5th instant with others. We were rather tipsy there. I asked the prisoner for more drink. £ do not remember saying anything to prisoner. I did not strike the prisoner that evening. I saw him present a pistol at me. I gave a slight turn round. He then fired. The ball wounded me in the neck. I staggered back a little, and would have fallen had not someone supported me. I cannot swear to the pistol produced. Z do not remember saying I would come behind the bar and pull the prisoner's liver out. The me...
VEGETABLE WONDERS OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
VEGETABLE WONDERS OF CALIFORNIA. Tlie California correspondent of the Standard says:-Tlie list of California's wonders does not end with its natural scenery or mineral resources, " not | muchly," as poor Artemus Ward would have said. The Yosemite Valley is ! doubtless one of the grandest of its kind; the geysers are as remarkable as those of Iceland; the Alabaster Cave -now rivalled by a recent discovery in Nevada-is not to be sneezed at \ its " big trees " challenge the world. But n'ow-a-days it is to agriculture that California owes its prosperity. A country which can raise 60 bushels and upwards of gTain to the acre; which on the rich reclaimed islands, the delta of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, has produced 454 bushels of potatoes to the acre; which raises citrons of 40 pounds weight, apples up to two pounds each, and pears five pounds in weight, can afford to crow a little. In the Industrial Fair of 1860 a beet was exhibited 118 pounds in weight. Water-melons of 40 pou...
BLYTH PLAINS WESLEYAN CHAPEL OPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
BLYTH PLAINS WESLEYAN CHAPEL OPENING. The opening services in connection with the new Wealeyan Chapel at Blyth Plains wef held on Sunday last, 20th February, when, notwithstanding the extreme heat of the wea ther, a large number mustered from White Well, Armagh, Stanley, and other places. The sermons afternoon and evening bj the Rev. C. H. Q-oldsmith were listened to with very great attention, several stating afterwards that they felt it to be none other than the house of G-od and the gate of Heaven. On Monday afternoon a goodly number met to partake of the tea liberally provided by Mrs. George Semmens, at the close of which the public meeting was held, presided over by Mr. Samuel Bray, of Spring Farm, whose opening address was both suitable and profitable. Pleasing and instructive addresses were given also by Mr. Thomas Moyses and the Superin tendent of the Circuit, the interest of the meeting being well sustained throughout, Mr. Lawson and the White Hut Choir adding to pleasure of...
A JAPANESE EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
A JAPANESE EXECUTION. I After an interval of a few minutes of anxious suspense, Taki Zenzaburo, a stalwart man, 32 years of age, with a noble air, walked into the hall attired in his dress of ceremony, with the peculiar hempen cloth wings which was worn on great occasions. He was accompanied by a kaishaku and three officers, who wore the zimboari or war surcoat with gold-tissue facings. The word kaishaku, it should be observed, is one to which our word "executioner" is an equivalent term. The office is that of a gentleman ; in many cases it is performed by a kinsman or friend of the condemned, and the relation be them is rather that of principal and second than that of victim and execu tioner. In this instance the kaishaku was a pupil of Taki Zenzaburo, and was selected by the friends of the latter from among their own number for his skill in swordmanship. With the kais haku on his left hand, Taki Zenzaburo advanced slowly towards the Japanese witnesses, and the two bowed before the...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
ilk gtfps* FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25,1870. IT appears from the folorn accounts which arrive from various parts of the colony that South Australia is fast de clining into an insolvent condition, and is consequently falling1 considerably in the rear of the neighboring colonies. These are serious things to contem plate, and when the thought flits through our minds that several thou sands of pounds have been expended to increase the population of this colony (which, unfortunately, we cannot re tain), we cannot help wishing for a Cromwell, or some other great man, to save the country by wise legislation, and so prevent numbers from leaving for the more liberal shores of Victoria and New South Wales. Day after day fresh accounts may be seen in all the leading journals concerning the migra tion of our population to a place where they can get land on reasonable terms, and obtain remuneration for their labor. It is scarcely fair to cast the blame of being the whole cause of the present depression ...

OXFORD SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 February 1870
OXFORD SLANG. Oxford slang maj be divided into two classes; there is the slang of the | place, and there is the slang of the people. A discussion of the former class will constitute no part of the en suing enquiry . expressions which have ! merely a local interest, or which are representative only of University cus toms, may be allowed to pass without examination of the fact that an under graduate calls his first and last uni versity examinations, respectively, " smalls'' and " greats," or to assign any historical or etymological origin to the expressions, " ploughed," " gulfed," and the like. These figures of speech, and such as these, relate simply to the essential part of univer sity life; and they cannot be consi dered as likely to influence in any way the slang of non-university societ}\ When, however, we come to the latter of the two classes into which Oxford slang was above divided, we shall per-1 haps find our subject devoid neither of interest nor instruction. An average Ox...

WATERVALE. (FBOM OUB OWN COREESPONDENT.) February 24. The temperature has become lower during the last two days, after a month's incessant and frequently intense beat, and has thus probably saved us from much sickness, which was be* coming prevalent in the neighborhood, espe cially amongst children. Mr. David §ands has nearly completed his contract on the main road between here and Leaeinghans, and seems to have done the work well; a few days will see the road open. The Central Bead Board, are also repairing a piece jf road on the Mintaro and. Hoyleton line in the township of LeasiDgbam, which had become sxtremely dangerous during the last floods. Though thetew clauses of the Police Act tiave been passed, this has not been declared a Police district, as promised by the Commis jioner of Crown Lands j and if it is not done before the elections, our members will, I am nformed, be asked to account for it whoa they some to re-solicit oureufiragee, as it is believed hey might now secure u...
