LECTURE AND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1870
LECTURE AND CONCERT. On Wednesday evening last the Rev. J. Hen derson, of Port Adelaide, delivered a lecture in the Town Hall, Clare, on Oliver Crr,mwell and His Times," the proceeds to be devoted to the harmonium fund in connection with the Scotch Church. The lecturer handled his sub ject in a very graphic and masterly manner, and was repeatedly applauded. The Clare String Band, having lindly placed their ser vices at the disposal of the committee, gave some choice selections of music, and did ample justice to every one of them. Mr. C. Beck oiann, whose powers as a vocalist are well known, gave two sacred pieces, which were much admired. Dr. Bain also gave a solo on the harmonium. The attendance was rather small, in conse quence, probably, of several election committee meetings taking place the same evening. Nevertheless, those who attended were both edified and entertained ; and we doubt not that a similar entertainment given on a more favor able occasion would be well patronised....

Binks (ex-Presiaeut of the Wesley an Con ference and Chairman of the South Australian District) preached morning and evening, and the lleva. W. Davidson (Presbyterian) in the afternoon.

No higher compliment to the ladies could be given than to say that every thing waB provided with that liberality and taste for which they have long been famed. The public meeting was held in the church, under the able presidency of Mr. Henry Jolly, of Mintaro.

The Northern Argus. SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1870
SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1870. As the elections are probably the most interesting and exciting topic of the day, a few remarks oil the subject may not be out of place. For some time after the last Parliament was dissolved it was presumed that the old represen tatives of Stanley would have a com fortable walk over, although a; few insinuated that a change of blood was absolutely necessary. It is not for us to say whether an alteration was re quired or not * but there cannot be a doubt that, in the absence of better men, the electors would not be far wrong; in voting; for those who had faithfully represented the district for a number of years. However, after the first and second batches of the elections had been disposed of there was no lack of candidates the first new arrival being- the rejected of Noarlunga-the j Hon. John Col ton, Commissioner of Public Works. The hon. gentleman would doubtless have been returned for the district he had served for a period of seven years, had it not bee...

THE CULTIVATION OF BEETROOT FOR SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 April 1870
THE CULTIVATION OF BEET ROOT FOR SUGAR. Will the cultivation of the beetroot for sugar to any extent in this country prove successful ? This is a question which is watched with some anxiety, because the interests identified with the beet-sugar manufacture are of gTeat importance to agriculturists. The United States and the Australian colo nies, as well as Englishmen all the j world over, are great sugar consumers, and according to Mr. Calrid, the con sumption of sugar in Great Britain during the last fifteen years has been greatly on the increase. In 1857 the average was at the rate of 28 lbs. per head of the population; in 1866 it was equal to 38 lbs. per head. The indi vidual consumption in England is esti mated to be three times that of France,; five times that ol Ireland, and sixteen! times that of Italy. The Australian consumption is even greater than that of England. Every individual in the colonies, excepting a very few who possess eccentric tastes, or are under-i going a cou...
