THE GOEDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 April 1870

THE GOEDFIELDS. The BaroBBa correspondent of the Cfawler Times wr.tes as follows: " Claims are only being partially wrought, and a general inertness prevails in our mining community, and paralyses business. I have often seen it stated that of all countries in the world those whole staple resources are gold are generally the poorest; and, paradox though it may seem, we have here at present the literal fulfilment of it; for with abounding heaps of cement everywhere, and the best of prospects in the claims, men find it hard to live, and thoBe in business have' to lay on their oars. Inde pendent of the minor crusher (Britcher*s) Mr. Noltfxrus, the manager of the Yictoria, has 500 tons of cement already booked, and when once vhe fl3odgates are opened it would be difficult, birring accidents to machinery, to foretell when the crushers may get another spell. The partial suspension of hill operations has dis persed a good many men amongst the old gullies, and at Hissey*e. Half-an-ounce nugg...

EDUCATION IN S. AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 April 1870

EDUCATION IN S. AUSTRALIA. The eighteenth annual report of the Central Board of Education, for the year ending De cember 3lst, 1869, has recently been published for general information. At the close of the year the number of schools in operation and conducted by licensed teachers was 330, being an increase of five schools upon the number of the preceding year. Twenty fire new schools were opened, and twenty were i closed or the teachers resigned their connection with the Board. The number of licensed; teachers was 328 -225 masters and 103 mie treese?. The number of assistant teachers was 239-20 males and 219 females. I The Board have secured a very eligible piece of ground (about three-quarters of an acre, j corner of Grote and Brown street?), for the site of the long-projected model school, an institu- j tion much to be desired, as it would greatly j tend not ouly to raise education to a higher i status in the licensed schools generally, but, as j far as regards Adelaide, to reduce...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 April 1870

glrps. FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 1870. WHILE politicians Lave for some time past been crying out for an infusion of new blood into the Assembly, it is refreshing to be in a position to state that a considerable amount of the vital fluid from Victoria has, almost without solicitation, been introduced into this colony to further and properly develop that which will before long* prove to be one of our reliable resources - the numerous reefs existing in our midst, and which only want the energy of capital and the appliances of science to render them a source of employment, comfort, and wealth to our already semi-impoverished population. The instance to which we particu larly refer is a venture in which a number of Victorian capitalists have, in conjunction with a few influential South Australian colonists, floated a company for the purpose of purchasing and working a newly discovered reef' in the neighborhood of Blumberg, and thoroughly testing the nature of the quartz reefs in this colony. The...

Sow, Sir, at the time of the election of 1868 I' was a resident elector of the district of JN oar lungs, and I can assure you there was as much dissatisfaction with Mr. Colton then as now, and had the electors been able to obtain the services of a good local man, Mr. Colton's chatce of the seat he- has lately held on the Treasury benches would have been very remote. So unpopular was Mr. Colton at the time I refer to that at the election meeting at Morphec Yale less than six persons attended, and I believe ihe number was only three, one of these being- a reporter, and another the publican at whobe home it waarheld. t.>:h t I am, S...

WATER VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) April 31. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 April 1870

WATER VALE. (FBOM OUB OWN COBBESPONDENT ) April 31. I The elections passed off quietly. The sup porters of the two successful candidates did their utmost for their party, and the Colton side were well looked up by canvassers from other places; but somehow these latter gentle men did not seem to be of the right sort to in spire confidence in, and secure the eupport of, our townsmen and neighbors. Several hot dis cussions took place on polling day, but the war was confined to woids, and all parted friendly at the close of the poll. One amusing incident occurred during the day:-An elector, who seemed in a stale of doubt as to what he should do with his voting-paper, was presented with one of the time-honored " John Styles" hand-, bills, and told to take it into the box, to study it carefully, and then record his vote. Having occupied the box some minutes, he returned, and made a triumphant rush for the door of the polling-booth; but on being commanded to etaud and deliver, having gazed...

DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 April 1870

DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN AMERICA. Tlie name of Cordelia Wilder is as familiar as a household word in the courts of Cincinnati. She has gained a most unenviable notoriety in the transaction of her business, which con sists in the loaning- of money at exhor bitant rates of interest to the keepers of houses of prostitution, to secure which loans she takes mortgages on the furniture of the houses. She did not confine her transactions in this line exclusively to Cincinnati, but made very large loans to the same class of persons in other principal cities of the west-St. Louis Chicago, &c. She, with her husband and children, have recently lived in the suburbs of the city. On Monday evening, December 27, about 6 o'clock, two of the children belonging to the Wilder family came running to the residence of Dr. Williams, on Cheviot, crying at the top of their voices for him to " Come quick to their house." The doctor's wife met them at the door, told them that he was absent from home, and inqu...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 April 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. The correspondent of the Gawler Times says:-Since my last our progress has been nil., and our state may be described by one word-stagnation. The holidays have inter vened, attracting away all who had business, pleasure, and the means, and leavir g us omi nously quiet. The rain, too, though it threaten?, does not come, thus rendering us as we were as regards crushing operations. Let rain but once come in sufficient quantity, and it will astonish all how instantaneously our position will become metamorphosed. Differing from other staples-thoBe of copper, lead, wool, and agricultural produce, so tardy often to realise upon, ours-gold-is cash directly obtained, and this will at once rescue us from the depth of depression to vital activity. A party who has bad extensive experience in gold mining in Victoria has just visited this field, and is highly prepossessed with its auriferous character. On the Deep Lead, Wickham and party bottomed yesterday. This hole is not in the ...

EXTRAORDINARY TREATMENT OF A DRUNKEN WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 April 1870

EXTRAORDINARY TREATMENT OF A DRUNKEN WIFE. A singular case has just been brought! under the notice of the police mag-is-! trate of St. Helier's, Jersey. John Le Hoy, watchmaker, about 60 years j of age, was charged with having- fixed his wife's head in a species of iron mask or cage on Saturday. The mask was produced in court. Its base con-j sisted of a piece of rod iron, about a quarter of an inch thick, formed into a ring, about eight or nine inches in diameter. The top was a similar ring, about six inches in width. These two rings were connected by means of seven vertical bars of hoop iron, a couple of inches apart. The instrument opened with a hinge in the front, was fastened at the back by means oi a padlock, and weighed 3 lbs. In the front part, im mediately opposite the mouth, a piece of hoop iron had been placed horizon tally, to prevent the wearer from get ting anything up to her mouth, though this, it appeared, was rather ineffectual, as, from the mask being rather too lar...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Australasian) Nelson. April 11. It is gratifying to be able to announce, with something like strong warrant arising from recent events, that at laBt the Maori difficulty is about to close. The employment of the friendly natives to dispose of Te Kooti and hie force " by contract"-that is to say, to do the work for a stated sum, which should be pa d only on the work being accomplished-has been attended by the happiest reeulte. Ropata, one of the friendly chief?, who for years has Btood by the Government, and who for some time has been, with a strong force and acting in conjunction with Kemp and Topia, in pursuit of Te Kooti-attacked a pah in what has been termed the " impenetrable" Uriwera countrv, the bete noir of the Maoris themselves. The difficult character of this country has been de clared by the Maoris to be such as to prevent hostile pursuit, and there is a tradition, not of an old date, that a victorious party of natives at war with the Uriwe...
