THE PUBLIC SCHOOL. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 May 1870
THE PUBLIC SCHOOL. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) SIR-Ever so many years ago our energetic townsmen came to the conclusion that a first class school was necessary in Clare. Straight way a committee was formed, meetings were held, subscriptions solicited and received, a plot of ground was purchased, and a quantity of stone carted, and then-alas, for the poor sub scribers ! -the school collapsed, and the stones for the proposed building lay on the ground to this day exactly aa they were shot from the drays. Brown, who was talking over the matter the other day, attributes the failure to the absence of a tea-fight, coupled with the usual promises to pay after harvest. Well, Sir, about eighteen montha ago some of our leading men took up the question again, formed a fresh committee, held more meetings, | and, I believe, went so far as to have plans prepared. As there is no appearance of the building been proceeded with, I presume the examination of the plans exhausted their energy...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 May 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Gawler Times writes as fallows: -"I need not pay that since my last we are in statu quo. The Victoria Crushing Company invited tenders a few day? ago for sinking a 50 feet well to supply them with water during the temporary absence of rain, but I am led to believe there is no inten tion at present to accept a tender for the work. It would be a matter of some £80 outlay, and ihe management probably think that would be rather a heavj tax at the tail-end of a dr summer, and especially as it is so doub'ful whether they would succeed then on obtaining & supply. I trust that the lesson taught by the drought of the last two months, and the conse quent cessation of all their operations, will induce the company to bestir themselves ere there is a charce that a similar state of things may occur another season.-Koticcs were dis tributed in the district that under execution f:om Gawler Local Court the engine of Bril cher's crushing machin...
GRANTS-IN-AID TO DISTRICT COUNCILS. (From the Evening Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 May 1870
GRANTS-IN-AID TO DISTRICT COUNCILS. (From the Evening Journal.) On Tuesday a deputation, consisting of the President of the Association of District Chair men, M>. W. Easther (Mitcham), Mr. L. Hewitt (Munno Para West), and Mr. J. K. Penney, secretary, waited on the Commissioner of Crown Lands. Mr. Easther stated that the deputation was in consequence of a resolution passed at a meeting of the Association of District Chairmen held last week-" That the Government be me morialised to return to the old system of grants in-aid." Messrs. Hay, Gray lard, and Grollop were appointed on the deputation, but he did r.oc know why thry were absent. The chiof complaint made was that owing to the depressed times there would be great difficulty in getting the rate in before June 15. According to the new regulations, on those rates which were paid in eubs&lt; quent to that date no grant wculd be allowed, and there would be a loss to the dis 1 riots'. In consequence of the bad times they hop...

HIGHWAY ROBBERY BY POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
HIGHWAY ROBBERY POWER. We have to report the commission of another highway robbery in this district, and there are strong1 reasons for believing that the perpetrator of it is identical with the man who took the leading part in sticking up Mr. Murray, the herdsman of the Lauriston Com mon, on Monday evening. The facts, so far as they have reached us, are as follow :-On Thursday morning the lad who carries the post-bag from Trentham Post-office to Messrs. Thrum's mills on the. Little Coliban, when about half-way between the two places was met by a man on foot, who made him give up the mail which he was carrying. The robber then deli berately opened every letter, and find ing nothing valuable in any of them, handed them all .back to the boy, at the same time threatening that if he gave any information which might lead to his arrest, lie would be sure- to murder him. It is- a significant fact that although the robber was on foot he took from the lad a quantity of horse feed which he had...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Crawler Times thus writes :-" Another sorrowful week has passed. The rain, though it has threatened, particularly last night and to-day, still keeps off, at least, to any extent available here, and pending its visit we are comparatively at a standstill. Sullivan and party have taken out a prospecting claim in Sailor's Ghilly (the gully referred to in my last), and a new reef claim has been taken up adjoining westward that of Biggs and Livesey. At Britcher's crusher Groddard has had 24f tons reduced since the 28th ultimo from Victoria Hill, realising 27 ozs, and another party has crushed 21 £ tons from Groddard's Hill, which they are now engaged in cleaning up.-I have recently made a complete circuit of the diggings, and although I have not attempted a census, I find we have not less than 450 bona fide diggers here. Conjointly with thiej I have ascertained we have quite 1,000 tons of cement. broken and ready for crushing. Now, I have r...

COMPLIMENTARY DINNER TO THE REV. A. KRANEWITTER, On Tuesday evening last a dinner in honor ot the Bey. A. Kranewifcter, of Seven hill Col kge, took place at Mr. J", freeman's Hotel, Penwortham. About 60 gentlemen sat down the repast, which was an excellent one, and reflected great credit on the caterer. Mr. P. M'-Namara occupied the chair, supported on the right by the guest of the evening, and on the left by the Rev. J. Tappeiner. The vice-chair was filled by Mr. T. Priest. Amongst those: present we noticed Dr. Vogt, and Messrs. Lennon, Sowton, Trilling, W. Davies, Meyers, Hosier, and other leading residents of the district. After the cloth had been removed, aud the usual loyal toasts disposed of, The CHAIBMAN proposed the toast of the evening, and in doing so said he could safely say that 110 man had made more friends and less enemies. As a priest he had been beloved by his flock, and as a gentleman he was re spected by the public. (Hear, hear.) After referring to the work the rev...

LFrom the Advertiser.]} SUMMARY OF NEWS. The Duke of Richmond has been formally installed as Conservative leader in the Lords, ,J and Lords Cauarvon and Salisbury have con sented to return to the same bench; In the Lords on the 3rd the Naturalisation i Bill was read a second time. It has since:! passed all stages. On the 7th there was a discussion on New: Zealand, Lord Carnarvon making a last appeal for the intention of the 14th Regiment, which Earl Granville declined. On the 18th the Bills for concentrating the various Courts of Law and creating a new ap pellative jurisdiction were read a second time by the Lords. In the Commons, on. the 1st, there was an interesting debate on State aid to emigration raised by Mr. R. B>. Torrens (S.A ) His resolution was opposed by the Government, and rejected by 153 to 48. The debate on the second reading of the Irish Land Bill commenced on the 7ch and was. brought to a close on the 11th. The severe criticism of Mr. Hardy, Lord Elcho, and Mr. D...
THE RISING GENERATION. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
THE RISING GENERATION. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGIJS) Sib-A. few weeks einee I wrote you a short letter on the practice of certain rowdy young gentlemen congregating on the footpath of the southern bridge. My remarks had the desired effect, as the nuisance no longer exists in that quarter. I am sorry to say, however, that they have merely shifted their quarters a little west> ward, their present rendezvous being the steps, doorway, and front entrance generally of the Wesleyan Chapel. I passed that, way during Divine service on Sunday evening last, and observed a great muster of the fraternity. Some were smoking, others loudly talking, and one was exercising his vocal abilities by singing " Tommy Dodd," while his friend performed a pas seul to the tune cf the profane ditty. Why they should select the neighborhood of the Wesleyan Chapel as the scene of their capers I am at a loss to imagine. Perhaps some of your readers will give an explanation, and thereby enlighten As AGE...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
|Jm[tkra fruits. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1870. QN Friday morning last the whole of the Ministers tendered their resigna tion to .his Excellency the Governor, who, after mature deliberation, accepted the same, merely stipulating that they were to liold office until their succes sorswere appointed. At a later period of the day the Hon. H. Strangways was ec sent for," the interview ending with his; being entrusted with the for mation of a new administration. On Tuesday morning he held a consulta tion with certain members of both Houses, but nothing was decided upon. Various surmises were afloat as to who should be chosen by Mr. Strang ways to act as his colleagues, the names of Messrs. Blyth, Carr, Darling, and one or two others being freely mentioned, but up to Wednesday night nothing definite was reported. It is probable, however, that by noon to-day a Ministry will have been formed, or Mr. Strangways will have retired (in: disgust) from the attempt. In the absence of anything to guide us, i...
VESTRY MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
VESTRY MEETINGS. We are indebted to the Evening Journal for the following : ST. JOHN'S, Adbuen-May 4.-The Chair man (Mr. Arthur King) alluded in feeling terms to the severe loss the Church had sustained in the death of itB much-respected minister, the Ven. Archdeacon Twopeny, whose energy, fdithfulneBe, and zeal, and whose many Christian virtues had endeared him to his congregation. He was truly one of a thousand-a man amongst men. His uniform affectionate behavior and sincere piety in his private life, as well as his public calling', claimed for him the love and respect of all. The predominant wish of the heart was, apparently, faithfully to serve his Master and to do good, and with this end in view he laboured earnestly and unostentatiously, both by precept and example. The Wardens report and balance-sheet were then read and unanimously adopted. The report stated the number of sittings paid for to be 80; the con gregation had been very regular, and since the death of the Archdeaco...
