HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
IIOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To. the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) SIB-rYour last issue contains the startling announcement that " all traffic" on that trium phant piece of far-seeing statesmanship-the Port Wakefield Tramway-is closed. If the insane projectors and the misguided supporters of it had been the sufferers, instead of a perse vering, sober, honest, and industrious trades man, the entire community would have cause to be jubilant; but to see one of our old residents, who has successfully surmounted the vicissi tudes of 16 years' local trade ruined in six months by this absurd tramway is a sad sight, and one not without its lessons to every think ing man. When thiB tramway was proposed, it met with a storm of opposition; but opposi tion without unity and organisation, like a charge of powder in a field-piece, makes much noise, but does no execution. The tramway was lauded into existence bv the united and strenuous efforts of influential land agents, embryo w...
KOORINGA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 9 [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 May 1870
KOORINGA. (FfiOM OUB OWN COBEESPONDENT.) May 9 J The general cry in this neighborhood is for rain. We have had plenty of cloudy threaten ing weather daring the last three weeks, bat none fell aatil yesterday, when it rained for about two hours steadily. To-day, however, the ground appears to be almost as dry as ever, and the weather is extremely cold-in fact, it is the coldest day I have felt for many months. 'Canowie and other stations bare been com pelled to start aheep travelling, as the only chance of saving their liveB. I am informed that in some parts of the North-East there is .plenty of feed. The Ulooloo Diggings are, I may say, totally deBerfced ; although there is a party from this place still out prospecting in the neighborhood, but they have been unsuccessful so far, having only obtained a few specks in six week?. The farmers are buBily eagaged sowing, and some I believe have already finished.

"FATHER COME HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
"FATHER COME HOME." An excessive indulgence of grief is not only to be a voided because it unfits us for tiie performance of the active duties of life, but also because it occa sion ally leads to the annoyance of our fellow-creatures. An instance of the d&ng-er of giving* way to uncontrollable regret was afforded on Saturday at tlie Thames Police Court. A . strongs powerful man, named William Onionr has, it appears, been before the Court about 50 times. He has been taken out of Whitechapel, Sliadwell, and Stephev churchyards at midnight, singing melancholy dirges, alleging as a reason for thus disturbing- the neighborhood that lie was only singing over his father's grave, " Father, come home ;'r although, on the other hand, it has never vet been decided in what ceme tery his lost relation: is interred. On Friday evening his grief took the turn of intoxication, and having with very brutal violence demanded money and liquor from two sailors, he was taken ! into custody, and se...
WOMAN'S PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
WOMAN'S PETS:1 The military pet often.fills the entire canvas of a woman's imagination, and the representatives of:the Church mili tant pales before the herd of the carnal weapon. He carries fire and sword into a woman's heart, at his appearance the champion of the cope and stole re tires defeated- "The Captain" per sonifies more perfection than we could sum up in a volume, and curiously enough, the woman who adores the churchman may he a still greater ad mirer of the man whose character al ways more nearly approaches her ideal of real manliness Then it exhibits a dash of delightful wickedness. . Her idolatry of the curate may be a mere interlude, but her love for the captain frequently becomes a serious and all absorbing* passion. Her imagination endows him with all the heroic qualities of a theatrical soldier. She thinks of him as marcning to victory with the easy grace and nonchalance with which he saunters into the dra:wing-roQni; How many times he has been wounded, or how many ...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
ht mth^rit girps. FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1870. AFTER eight or ten days' incessant labor, Mr. Strangways has succeeded iii farming a Ministry, whieh is at the best a sorry one, and gives but little promise of being long-lived. The gentlemen composing it are the fol lowing ;-. Chief Secretary-Hon. A, Stow. Attorney-General-Hon. H. B. T. Strangways. Treasurer-Mr. E. A. Hamilton. Commissioner ot Crown Lands-Mr. W. Cavenagh. Commissioner of Public Works-Mr. F. E. H. W. KrichaufF. It will be seen that three of the above are new to office, and it is there fore not to be wondered at if an almost unanimous prejudice exists against the Ministry. One journal makes the ghoul-like remark that the sentence of death is written on its countenance, and gives it but one week's existence after the meeting o.f Parliament; while another " declines wasting words in considering the prospects of the stabi lity of such a team, those prospects being absolutely nil" With the latter remark we cordially agree, and wil...

FAREWELL CONCERT TO MR. BARTSCH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
FAREWELL CONCERT TO MR. BARTSCH. The complimentary benefit concert to Mr. Hermann Burtseh took place on Tuecdayevening last, and was a decided success. Notwith standing the doubtful and somewhat unfavor able state of the weather, the attendance was most satisfactory, the reserved seats being filled to over flowing with the youth, beauty, and fashion of the town and district, while the unreserved portion of the building was nearly full. In fact, the attendance is said to have been the beetever experienced on the occasion of a Glare benefit. We noticed amongst the audience a number of influential residents of Watervale, Auburn, Mintaro, and the neigh boring townships. The hall was brilliantly illuminated and presented a .gay appearance, the bunting and curtains of the stage adding considerably to the effect. A few minutes past eight o'clock the conce t -(or, more correctly speaking, miscellaneous entertainment, as it consisted of music, magic, readings, and recitations)-commenced with...

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) May 18. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
WATERVALE. (FROM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT ) Mav 28. During the last two or three weeks there ha? been a dearth of news in this mighborhood, and even now I hare little to report, except that most seasonable rains have gladdened the hearts of our agricultural friends, who may be seen industriously at work on their farms in all di rections. The pyrotechnic display intended to take place on May 25 has been postponed sine d e, as the public seemed to lake little interest in the matter, and the committee did not feel justified in attempting it with the small means placed at their command. Paid subscriptione, therefore, have or will be returned to the donors. Mr. H. Syraone is building a large forge for his own use on the piemises lately occupied by Mr. Berriman ; the dimensions are, 43ft x 30ft. Mr. Sjmons also intends building a dweiling-houee adjoinirg the smithy Our local medical man has been compelled by ill-health to resign out-door practice, but will continue to see patients at the dis...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. We have had a week of showery w&lt;a&lt; her, which has given the ground a good soaking This is very acceptable to all, especially our agriculturists. Our tradesmen are still com plaining of the excerdmg dulnees of the times. People are still lesving the neighborhood. I have no doubt, if the weather continues so favorable, confidence will be restored and busi ness improve; and should we be bleat wrh a good season, a gocd harvest may be looked for.

On Monday the tea and public meetings were held, Mr. T. Thomas occupying the chair. Addtesses were given by the Revs. T. James, J. Trewin, and A. Stubbf. I believe the proceeds amounted to upwards of £50. Votes of thanks to the rev. gentlemen, ladies, Chairman, &e., wound up an interesting meet ing, the attendance at which w...
THE WALLAROO COPPER MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 May 1870
THE "WALLAROO COPPER MINE. . Ip ,1a probable that; few of our readers are acquainted with.the, importance and eitensire, workings of the .Wallaroo Copper Mine. Sketches of other mining industries occasionally appear in . the metropolitan .journals, but the one alluded to appears to have been entirely overlooked, and consequently very little is known of its management, yield, or dimensions. The reason given for thit», we understand, is the unwillingness of the conductors to impart the desired informal'on. However, having had an opportunity of visiting the Peninsula, we tock a stroll through the mine, and picked up a few items which may prove interesting to our readers. The mine is situated about a mile from Kadina, in a south-westerly direction, and is at present under the management of Captain Hancock. About the centre of the mine is the main shaft (Taylor'*), which is 70 fathoms in depth. The pre is brought to the surface by steam machinery. - Some 150 "fathoms to the east of Tajlo...
