AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 31. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 April 1870
AUBURN. (PBOM OUB OWN COBBE8PONDBNT.) March 31. The weather continues very dry, with the exception of a slight shower on Tuesday after noon, which was only sufficient to lay the dust, but was accompanied with heavy thuhder and lightning. I am glad to say the lad Warhurst, stepson of Mr. A. J. Carey, who received an injury, as mentioned in my last, is progressing favorably and considered out of danger. I am also glad to hear that Mr. Swinden, of Biverton, is improving. The case, I understand, is not likely to be so serious as was at first antici pated.

AUBURN. On the evening of Wednesday last Messrs. Colton and Torr appeared before the electors of Auburn in the Town Hall. About 300 per sons were present, Mr.if, Sow ton occupying the chair. ' The Hon. J. COLTON reiterated his sentiments, as given in our report of the meetings at Clare, Mintaro, and Watervale } and in reply to two of many o'h°r questions, stated that the Com missioner of -foliop. ordered the troopers to ride down the King Wil'iaro-street mob on his own responsibility; and that the Government had no intention of purchasing Queensland engines. Mr. TORE addressed the meeting at some length, and concluded a violent speech by stig matising Messrs. Bumpy and Tripy (Sir George Kingston and Mr. Bright) as " regular duffers." Mr. I. Bosch proposed, and Mr. T. Orerton seconded, a motion in favor of Mr. Colton. Mr. Wiles moved an amendment to the opposite effect, which on being seconded and put to the meeting was declared carried by a small major ry. The utsual votes of thanks...
WATERVALE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 April 1870
WATERVALE. Messrs. Col ton and Torr held an election meeting at Water vale on Wednesday afternoon, April 6. About 20 persons attended, several being from Clare and Mintaro, most of the Watervale people.eeemiag to think it not worth their while to attend. Mr. ISAAC EOACH, the Secretary of Mr. Colton*s Committee, cook the chair, as no local gentleman could be induced to accept the office. Mr. COI.TOV explained hi9 views (notwith standing continued interruption from Mr. Peter Brady, of Mintaro), which promised much more liberal legislation than heretofore. Mr. Tobb, on being called on, said he was for free trade, for free selection, and free legis lation. He wanted to be Commissioner of Crown Lands.

CLARE CORPORATION. WEDNESDAY. APEH. 6. Present-The Mayor, and Councillors Feb,, Kelly, Treleaven, and Bowley. The minutes of last meeting were read and confirmed. Proposed by Councillor Kelly, and seconded by Councillor Fete, that the Public Works Committee be requested to inspect the bridge in Lennon street, and report to the next meeting of Council j or to have power to call a special meeting if the repairs thereto are urgently re quired. Adjourned for a fortnight --?-^ A South Australian farmer called at oar (Standard) office on Saturday, and related his experiences in bis search for a home In Victoria. He was one of a party of four farmers, who examined the eelectiou country as far as to : within 61 miles of Ballarat, and he simply repeats the oft-told tale, that all the good land is either in the hands of squatters, the earliest selectors, or reserved. That portion remaining open for selection now is mere rubbish which he would not have at a gift; but anyone who is speculative ...
RHYNIE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 April 1870
EHYNIE. Mr. Jarroan met the eleetorB of B.hynie and vicinity on Tuesday evening last at Spring's Hotel. Mr. Arthur Nicholls occupied the chair, and introduced the candidate, who he said was a local man, and would no doubt do the district justice. Mr. J ARM AN, on rising, vraa received with applause. After a few preliminary remarks, he said that one of the great topics of the day was the present land system. The advantages of the Victorian Land Bill Lad been greatly over rated, and many of our industrious settlers who had broken up their hcmeB in South Australia, and L ft us to settle there, now find, to their cost, that Victoria is not the El Dorado that fancy and stump orators had painted it. In many respects it was inferior to our present South Australian land system, and surely tbere was sufficient, talent in South Australia to frame a Land Bill suitable to the wants of our, colony. Be should like to see a Bill introduced which would be vastly more liberal than even the Victorian...

MINTARO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 April 1870
MINTABO. The Hon. John Colton met the electors fit Piper's Hotel, Mintaro, on Wednesday last. Mr. JOLLY was unanimously voted to the chair, and introduced the candidate. Mr. COLTON, on rising, said that if he had had any doubt as to being returned, it was removed the previous night at Clare, when the chairman of the meeting declared a large majority in his favor. He then proceeded to &lt; xpress his views in a manner similar to that at the Clare meeting. Mr. To HE, who accompanied Mr. Colton, then rose and expressed his political sentiments, the sum and substance of which was that he was in favor of a new land bill, and if the Hectors cou'd get better men than himself and Mr. Colton they were at liberty to do so. He would, through thick and thin, stick to the poor man, who was the bone and sinew of the colony. In reply to Mr. Faulkner, Mr. Colton said he was in favor of the best land in the colony being brought within reach of the formers. In his opir ion, the land law shoul...
FRENCH MODE OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 April 1870
FRENCH MODE OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: M. Maxime du Camp not long since ?made a severe study of the system of capital punishment now practised in paris. He even went the length of surrendering himself into the execu tioner's hands to be pinioned, and thrust under the guillotine, in order that he might more thoroughly enter into the sensations of a condemned criminal, and describe his last moment®. He has now embodied his information in an article in the Revue des Deux Mondes. Meeting the convict on his arrival at the Conciergerie after his condemnation, M. du Camp traces his subsequent existence to its close on the scaffold. The first thing done 2$, of course, to strip the prisoner of all his clothes, and encase him in the strait waistcoat in which he is doomed to spend his few remaining days. The camisole is made of stout sailcloth, stiff and hard, and is fastened by several strong buckles; the sleeves are sewed up at the end, so that the hands can not get out. No instrument of metal i...
