Kingston and Mr. Bright an opportunity of expressing their views. The Mayor (Dr. Webb) occupied the chair.

CLARE CORPORATION. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

CLARE CORPORATION. I Wemtesbay. M arcft 9. Present-The Mayor, and Councillors Powell, Fels, Bowley, Smith, and Treleaven. The minutes of last meeting were read and confirmed. The Town Clerk said he had given Mrs. Dempsey notice to discontinue slaughtering ; and had also attended the Clare Local Court and obtained judgment in the actions brought on for rates. A letter was read from the Under-Secretary, sent in 1869, stating that the Government sup plemented all private subscriptions at the rate of 100 per cent, for public works. His Worship stated that the Government had made that promise, but had failed to keep it. He thought it would be necessary for the clerk to write to the Government and ascertain whether they would supplement at the rate of 100 per cent. A letter was received from Mr. C. Mann stating that he had great pleasure in accepting the appointment of solicitor to the Corporation for the present year. The Town Clerk said he had written to Mr. Mann in reference to the obs...

WATERVALE. (feom oce OWN COEEESPONDENT ) March 17. Yesterday being the anniversary of Court Bushman's Home, a game of cricket was played in a paddock adjoining" the township, but the number of players was extremely small, though those who were there seemed to enjoy them selves. In the evening, instead of the usual wearisome dinner, a grand soiree took place in the Foresters' Hall, where the attendance was mo derate, Mr. King having delivered his address as Chairman, the Secretary of the Ccurt, Mr. Milnes, read the report, which showed the receipts during the past year to be £125 9s 4d, and the expenditure £81 5* Id. This latter item including twelve guineas for sick pay, which amount is extremely moderate, and goes far to prove the prosperous condition of the Court. As regards tha en*ei tainment, I can only say it was a great success, our own ama teurs having greatly improved on their last performance, and the strangers who had been invited t~> take part in it bi iog, as the Chai...

SUICIDE AND INQUEST AT MELROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

SUICIDE AND INQUEST MELROSE. Aiv inquest, was held by Mr M. Moorhouse, J.P., at White's Forest, on March 9, on the body of Henry James, found the previous morning hanging to the ridgepole of an empty hut standing about 300 yards from the residence of deceased. Nancy James, wife of deceased, deposed-On Thursday, March 3, he said the thought of hanging himself had come into his mind, and he went to the ; empty hut about 300 yards away from the house with a determination to hang himself, but he came back and his mind appeared better. He was more cheerful in the afternoon. On Sunday he was very much depressed, and said he would be happy if he saw me and the children dead before him. On Monday he ap peared better, and said in the evening that I had no need to fear, for he would not hang himself; he said, I will not do it." On Tuesday morning he rose about 7 o'clock. He never spoke to me; lit the fire before I was up. Missed him from the house about a quarter of an hour. His hat was in th...

THE NEW POSTAL ABSURDITY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

THE NEW POSTAL ABSURDITY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ABGUS ) Sib-Knowing that the columns of your jouGral are ever open to receive communications on any important subject, I take the liberty of penning down a few remarks on the absurdity of closing the mails at 10 o'clock p.m. when it does not 1« ave Glare till 5 30 in the morning. What motive the authorities can have for such a course of proceedings is beyond my compre hension-unless it is to allow the postmaster a comfortable anocze in the morning. However, this is now a thriving town, and every facility in the wav of postage should be given to the inhabitants. It is of no use submitting to such impositions as men in power may be pleased to impose on us. If I want to write a letter in the evening, I am forced to do so before 10 o'clock, which will be a great inconvenience sometimes, as my business occupies the best part of my time during the evening. I think the new postal arrangements, as far as Clare is con cerned, are perfe...

FAR NORTH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Strang way's Springs, Feb. 24. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

PAR NORTH. (FBOM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Strang way's Springs, Feb. 24. The prevailing hot weather is causing the grass to dry^ which sprung after the late rains, also the water to shrink with extraordinary rapidity. There is no indication of any change, although clouds are leaking their appearance, wh»ch to my idea only denote a tempestuous wind. When Government received and accepted tenders for the postal contract fromEdiowie to Mount Margaret they determined to give the fortunate contractors enough work in the pig skin, the entire distance being 360 miles, which has to be traversed in the short space of six days, being 60 miles per day-no very pleasant task during the summer months. According to competent judges, bush riding is tedious -not to say hard employment. Two flocks of fat sheep from this locality are en route for the Adelaide market. They are comprised of full-mouthed ewes and four-tooth weathers, all of which are in real prime condi tion, and will undoubtedly realise r...

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

THE GOLDFIELDS, The payable ground proved on the Barossa diggings is extending every week. Two more ? shafts on the deep lead have just been bottomed, j and the stuff looks will, but I have sot heard the result, One of these holes is over 100 feet in depth. The rush at Simmonde' Hill is thought very well of. About 60 men are working there, and 30 more at Moonta Hill. In Hiasey's Gully the diggers are making wages. Payable goid was found yesterday (Thursday) on a hill at the head of this gully. Several claims were pegged out. The sinking is about 25 feet. There is a new rueli about 2| miles beyond Williamstown, towards Mount Crawford. The sinking is shallow, and the gold is said to be in paying quantities. I shall visit the place and report next week. Altogether the diggings look more prosperous than ever. I am sorry to t ay the Victoria Company's crusher was compelled to stop on Monday last for want of water. When we get some good rain we shall go ahead again.-Correspondent Gawler T...

ORIGINAL POETRY. EVENING THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

ORIGINAL POETRY. EVENING THOUGHTS. | The Sun in yonder western sky Is sinking softly 'neath the hills; | Eye's beauteous hour is drawing nigh To shroud in shade this world of ills. I Each tree with golden tints is painted, | Every blade of grass is bright; But ah! the glorious light is fading, | And downward falls the robes of Sight. And thus, in man's excelling hour, His Sun oft sets amid his joys, And leaves him to the wild Wight's power And demons that that night employs. But still a greater light doth burn Than simply lights this orb of Borrow, That casts those demons back with scorn, And gives our path a bright to .morrow.; Though hope be dead, and ties be parted, . All around be dark with gloom, He'll guide our way to that bright morrow That shines beyond the deepest tomb. Man wrongly may our acts convert To deeds of sin, of vice, and crime, Aod in presumptive judgment's hour Four hyssop bitter on our thyme. But He can tkwart man's petty sway, And lead us where He wills we go;...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 March 1870

mtltftt Japs. FRIDAY, MARCH 18,1870. THE singularly bungling method our legislators have, got of forming our laws was clearly exhibited at the last meeting of the Municipal Council. A member, of that body asked the lown Clerk whether or not the Corporation had power to prevent the erection of . ' - v||ibden buildings withmtbe boundary"! of tlie town. To the astonishment of both Major and Councillors, they were informed that according- to the Muni cipal Corporation Act they had not the slightest power to do so without first applying-to the Governor and obtaining his sanction. In one clause they were endowed with the power of preventing such buildings being erected, but ano ther clause of a later date takes that privilege away. On ascertaining the position in which the Corporation was placed, the Town Clerk was very properly instructed to apply for the permission of his Excellency, as re quired by the Act. It is absolutely necessary that a body of men forming a Municipal Council shoul...
