MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. Gas foe Less thax Nothing.— There is at present to be seen, at 16, Newton-street, High Holborn, London, an extraordinarily simple little contrivance, by which it is shown that gasiight can be manu factured for positively less than nothing. The dis coverer of this latest gas manufacturing improvement is Mr. Eussell, and if his new gas possesses half the advantages he claims for it, and which he eertainly seems to prove pretty clearly at his temporary works in Newton-street, it will create a revolution in our present means of producing artificial ligbt of an ex tensive character. Visitors to the temporary ?works at Newton- street will find that Mr. Russell can prove to them that he is able to extract gas from vegetable substances, which, up to the present time, have been treated as utterly useless, and 'which, better still, after prodachig the gas become matter of cashcon vertible value ; so that the more of the new gas one manufactures and consumes the greater advantag...

FINNISS VALE. Finniss Vale, December 5. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

FINNISS VALE. FFrom our own Correspondent.! Finniss Vale, December 5. The anniversary of the Wesleyan Chapel at Glenburn took place on Sunday and Monday, 25th and 26th ult. On Sunday two excellent sermons were preached by the Rev. T. Edmeades, minister of the circuit. The chapel was crowded on both occasions by attentive listeners. On Monday, the weather being favorable, a large assemblage of people gathered in the chapel-yard, apparently bent on enjoying themselves. Shortly before 5 o'clock tea commenced, and it was really an excellent spread — in fact the good ladies of Glenburn j are noted for tbe quantity and quality of their provision on these occasions. After tea the young people engaged in various exercises, such as jumping, racing, cricket, &c. At half past seven the public meeting commenced, and, as usual, was opened with sing-ing aui prayer Mr J. Newbold, sen , was voted to the chair, and, after a few preliminary remarks, called upon the Secretary (Mr L. F. Bawden)...

WHAT IS A WHITE MAN? [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

WHAT IS A WHITE MAN? The Supreme Court of Michigan has worried itself very much of late in attempting to discover what is a whits ruan. A simple mind, unaccustomed to subtle distinctions, would fiud no difficulty iu deciding, but would at once assert that a while man is a man who is white. But such stupidity must arouse the disgust of every profound philosopher. It has been clearly established by the laws of every .Southern State, aud several Northern States, including Michi gan, that a man may be a white man, and at the same time a black man. Everything depends upon the cartilage of the nose. ' A certain peculiarity of the cartilage of the nose,' says the scientific testimony taken before the Circuit Court of Wayne Couuty, ' is an infallible indication of African blood.' This is truly an appalling fact, and may lead to the amputation of a large number of noses — for if a man is only a nigger by reason of that organ, let him cut it off, and in. stantly he rises in the scale of races...

STRATHALBYN. 1 From osr own Corrcsnondent.1 Strathalbvn, December 5. The Strathalbyn Mutual Improvement Association held their quarterly soiree at Mr. Coleman's store on Friday evening last, when nearly 250 persons were present. Mr. Catt occupied the chair. The room was very tastefully decorated with choice flowers, reeds, evergreens, &c. The programme was a large and varied one, consisting of eongs, readings, and recitations, and the audience seemed extremely pleased at the entertainment provided for them, denoting their approbation by loud and frequent bursts of applause. During the interval of half an hour the audience were supplied by the members of the association with refreshments, consisting of coffee, biscuits, cake, bread and butter, &c, &c. Every one seemed pleased, and the soiree was a decided success.

SMUT IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

SHUT IN WHEAT. The prevailing opinion among European writers is, that smut in wheat is caused by an insect — au eel-like worm — which is said to be in the seed- wheat when sown ; and, by the moisture communicated to the seed in the earth, the insect is enabled to burst tha walls of its. prison, and, escaping, rises to the surface, and secures a lodgement between the leaves of the growing plant, near the centre — where the grain begins to develop. It then works its j way to the head of tha growing wheat, and makes its entrance into the embryo grain, j which destroys the natural developement of the. wheat, and causes the diseased trans formation which we call smut. In the Ohio agricultural report for 1857, the able and efficient secretary, J. C. Klippart fur nished an article, with several illustrations, giving the natural history of the insect, and its elect upon the wheat-plant. The facts given were chiefly derived from the observations of British and continental European writers ; ...

MILANG. Milang, December 6. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

MILANG. TFrom our own Correspondent.] Milan?, December 6. A'narrow escape from drowning occurred here'on the afternoon of Sunday last. Three men, while under the influence of intoxication, put off from the jetty in a small boat — little better than a dingy — named the Fly, belong ing to a fisherman of this port. There was a strong sea breeze blowing at the time, and a considerable 6ea. When about a mile off the jetty she was observed to shake up in the wind, then fall off, and immediately after wards she went down. Police-trooper Dann, accompanied by Messrs Blaby and Breeding, immediately put off to the assisiance of the unfortunate men in the cutter Wasp. Mean time they could be seen with the aid of a glass to be all three clinging to some part of the gear belonging to tbe boat. Fortunately all were saved, although it is believed that a few minutes more would have sealed the doom of two of them, they being very much exhausted, while the third, even before he was rescued from his pe...

SOUTHERN MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

SOUTHERN MAILS. Thebe are few questions of greater practical interest to a provincial community tban its mail communication. If it is inconvenient, uncertain, or dilatory, it deals a death-blow to local commerce, and becomes besides a serious disparagement even to social intercommunica tion. But if it is sure and speedy the advan tages of commercial enterprise and social intercourse will follow in its wake. It is ?worth while, therefore, takiDg what Mr Coglin would call a ' nocturnal colonial synopsis' of the present position of this dis- i trict as regards its postal arrangements. Our J readers will admit that we have not hitherto been unmindful of the importance of the subject ; and perhaps some will even concede to the SouUicrn Argus the credit of participa tion at least in the efforts which resulted lately in the remedy of certain abuses of this nature now happily belonging to the past.

THE STORY OF A PARISIAN MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 December 1866

THE STOKY OF A PARISIAN MARUIAGE. An interesting1 chapter on Paris marriages is afforded by the report of a recent trial iu that city. Mr Lachaud appeared on behalf of the Countess de Tolna nee de Vilna, to ask for a separation a mensa et ilioro from her hus band, Count Sigismond Fostetits de Tolna, one of the Emperor of Austria's chamberlains. From the statement of counsel it appeared that the parties were married at the mayoralty of the 9 In arondissement in Paris, on July 30, 1864. The lady was then only nineteen years old, the husband forty-two. She had nothing ; he had a large fortune, besides his rank and position at the Austrian court already men tioned. He fell in love with her suddenly at an evening party at which he met her with her mother, Madame Lame Godefroy, some times calling herself Godefroy de YiJna. The circumstances of the courtship and subsequent marriage are amply explained by the following correspondence, which was read in court. Shortly after the evening party...
