A HINT TO FARMERS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN AEGUS.) SIB-Allow me fhrough the medium of your columns, to give a word of advice to the farmers and dairyman in tbe surrouuding districts of Clare, MoBt of them are continually making butter, some of it not fit to buy; how much better would it be for them to manufacture the milk into cheese ? which would return a much better profit anel prevent storekeepers supplying fchem salves from town. Cheese at present is very scarce about here, and has been since I have been a resident in Clare. HopiDg this will stir up some of our farmers to act upon the advice here given.

FLOODS IN QUEENSLAND. Maryborough, March 12. The raise in this distriet hare been heavier than any one can remember to have eeen before The floods have risen to an alarming extent, and the water is four feet above the highest point ever known to have been previously reached. Large numbers have been compelled to abandon their homes. The Mayor has been most active in relieving the most pressing cases. Gym pie, March 14. There have been six days' successive rain, and the whole district has been visited by the severest floods ever known here. One-half of the town, extending for about a mile, is com pletely submerged, and the damage to pro perty is very great.

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. We have heard good news from the Mount! Pleasant diggings. About 100 men are working there, and we are informed nearly all are earning j a living, or something better. A good deal of surfacing is goiag on, the washdirt being from eight Inches to a foot in depth, and under it clay. This stuff yields from 4 dwts. per load up to several ounces, one load turning out aB much as 4 ozs. Besides the surfacing, ranging in depth from two or three to twenty feet. There are a number of reefs being worked, and in at least four gold has been seen. From Jupiter Greek, a correspondent of the Advertiser writes as follows" We are in a state of eclipse on this field at present, owing to the superior splendour of the river diggings; yet there are some who have tried there and returned, having sunk several shicers each. There is a pretty general feeling among the diggers, both here and at the river, that the G-overnment would do really good service to the colony at large if they would se...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

MISCELLANEOUS. SUFFERING PROM WANT OP BAIN.-A cor respondent writing to the Ararat Advertiser from the Wimmera district gives a very melan choly account of the grazing capabilities of the country north of Horsham. He says:-*' We have only had one shower of any consequence this season, and fortunately for our own sake*, to say nothing of our sheep, we managed to get a fnir supply of water in most of our dams ; but after all the country is almost bare, and what should be grass is only dried up chips. How the sheep exist at all is marvellous, yet, strange to say, you will meet flock after flock nibbling away at the burnt up herbage, which crumbles to powder in their mouths. Of course, most of them subsisting thus are merely wool-covered skeleto s, and thousands are compelled to be sent off to some oasis or other to eave their lives. Boiling-down has been tried, but where the sheep are so poor they hardly yield fat enough to prove remunerative. We are not called a very religious class U...

THE MEAT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

THE MEAT QUESTION. The great question of meat preserva tion advances. Almost every passing month registers some fresh triumph in the war against monopoly and dearness;! and the day is evidently not far distant when the invaluable scientific secret by which meat may be preserved in its freshness and sweetness for any rea sonable space of time, will be disclosed to our enterprising- experimentalists. A new claimant of success has recently stepped to the front. It has for some time past been well known that Pro fessor Gamg'ee was engaged in practical researches into the various methods now in use for the preservation of the flesh of animals for food. He has tested all existing methods, and found them defective in some essential re spects, and now comes forward to an nounce that he has discovered a pro cess by which he expects at once to remove butchers' meat from the cate gory of perishable commodities. He lias tested the new system in I his country. 13y the help of Messrs. Bonsor, of ...

SHOCKING MURDER IN ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

SHOCKING MURDER IN ADELAIDE. On Sund*y night last the police arrested a man named William Wallace Legge, on the charge of wilfully murdering his wife, Mary Legge. It appeared that the prisoner, who is an habitual drunkard, and frequently lined in the.Police Court, was staging with his wife at Graaon's lodging-house, Hindley-street. On. Sunday evening he had been out and cume in drunk, and shortly afterwards his wife returned, home rather the worse for liquor. He told her. to go to bed; *4)ut she refused to do so. A quarrel ensued, and he said, " If you don't go to bed I'll put an end to you." She replied, "No, I won't." He then went into a back room and took a table knife out of a drawer. As he re-entered the room, lie said, " I'll do for you now," and frownieg at a young man named Roskilley, who was in. the room, went up to hi9 wife, caught her by her hair,, and stabbed her two or three times in the back.

PAID REPRESENTATIVES. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN [?]RGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

PAID REPRESENTATIVES. (To the Editor of THE J? OETHE EN , A EG US.) j Sis-Ab the question of paid members is deservedly attracting a large share of, public attention, I trust jou will find room in your columns fcr a few remarks on the subject. If is generally admitted that since the introduc tion of responsible government this colony has ceased to progress as rapidly as its great natural resources warranted its admirers to expect. It follows, then, that cither our boaBfed Constitu tion iB unsuitable for this small community, or our legislators have been wanting in that prac tical sagacity that seizes the right moment and adopts the right measures for securing national prosperity. I incline to the latter reason. The 1 admiaistrative Government of the colony' is confined to something like a score of wealthy and influential men; and no matter how the pieces on the political chessboard arc moved, the leaders maintain their relative value to the rest of the pieces, and are sure "to crop ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 March 1870

|Jm[tlwLra ^rps. FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1870. THE Victorian Land Act does not appear to be working* so well as was anticipated. There are evidently too many trivial clauses in connection with the measure to suit the palate of South Australians, such as using painted pegs, surveyings balloting-, giving notice of intention to apply for the piece of ground fixed upon, &c. These are not the only impediments in the way of obtaining- land in Victoria, or they might easily be overcome by an energetic man; but after rambling about the country in search of a suit able block-having pitched upon apiece which he thinks will meet his require ments, the selector commences . the routine of regulations laid down, think ing he has nothing more to do l>ut apply for the ground. On application being made, he finds he has to compete with a number of others, and the result lays in a throw in the ballot-box. A great proportion of those who left this colony for the purpose of settling in Victoria, wi...

March 24, I am sorry to hear that Mr. S winder, of Riverton, and other gentlemen, with him, were capsized out of a waggonette while travelling between the above place and Saddle wo . th on Tcwsday evening.
