RHYNIE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 25. The chief topic of conversation during the past week both here and in the neighborhood where Edwards received the fatal blow from Sedgely is the very light sentence the latter has received; ahd those acquainted with the cir cumstances seem to think that 12 months' is comparatively a short time in durance vile to what the prisoner deserved, although they do not doubt but what Edwards was to blame. We have had a good supply of rain here lately, which will doubtless prove a benefit to farmers and many others. The weather at the time I write is fine, the nights being cold. A Scotchman who had put up at an inn, was asked in the morning how lie had slept. " Troth man," replied Donald, *' nae very weel either; but I was muckle better aff than the bugs, for dei'l a ane o' them closed an e'ethe whole nicht." A Yankee and a Frenchman owned a pig in co-partnership. When killing time came, they: wished to divide the carcase. The Yankee was ; very anxious ...

The northern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 May 1870
Site grps. FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1870. * THE question of Education stands second to none at the present time, and - though many schemes have been put forward, no one in particular has "been decided _upon,: and little unanimity exists in the matter. Some are in . favor - of a simply secular education, and others of secular and religious 1 combined. Some, again, would have the education of children controlled by the clergy, while others affirm that it is decidedly- a national or Governmental work.- In the latter opinion we firmly believe, and furthermore, we consider . that education should be compulsory. Taking the compulsory part of the question first, we may state that few . will deny that education is a blessing, and that the adult who deprives a child of the means of acquiring it is morally criminal, and ought to be made legally responsible. John Knox said, 300 years ago,-that "no man of whatsoever estate he be-whether he be a peer or peasant, a lord or one that drives him, a prince or...

FAR NORTH. (FROM OUR OWN COUBESPOKDENT.) Strangway's Sprirg, May 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 May 1870
FAR NORTH. (FBOM OUB OWN COUBESPOKDENT.) Strangway's Sprirg-, May 10. The formidable state of things that at present exists is even felt ia this out-of-the-way place. There are men oat of number travelling in search of employment, but the general average of them are utterly unable to procure that indis pensable boon. Some of the more unfortunate ones inform me that tkry hare been unavoid ably idle since last shearing, and have given up in despair all hopes un'il the coming shearing. What is the evil incident to? Is it that, the country w over-populated with the laboring class? or that the land lav is so absurdly illiberal, with bad legislation combined ? Truly, something is positively essential to render the colony more flourishing than it is at the present tim&lt;». Why not construct the much talked*of Fort Augusta Sailway, a work that is really necessary to the community at large, and thereby, give labour to the unemplo- ed. The North West has again bern favored with abund...

HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 May 1870
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. I (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN AEGUS.) .SlB-In your last issue a letter appeared under the above heading, and containing a startling announcement from a Mr. Jarman. which grieved me to read, baring come from the gentleman, I presume, who wished to aspire to patliamentaiy honor?. Mr. Jarman starts off in a very tonching manner by asserting that the late lessee was rained in six months (should be three months) by leasing it. So for l am sot in a position to contradict? and this matter has nothing to do with the line. I will also pass over Benjamin Franklin and his tin whistle, and all the other fuiiny remarks, but cannot the estimates, which are a groBs misrepresentation. The first line in the writers calculation is-. Cr. for thi6 year, By carriage of wheat, 60,000 bushels at 2d, £500.

THE LATE C0NCERT. (To the Editor of The Northern Argus) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 May 1870
THE LA.TE C0NCER1. I (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS ) Sib-I regret to learn, but am by no means surprised at the discovery, that some of jour remarks in last week's Argus upon the amateur concert in the Clare Town Hall have given serious offence to many of the performers. Allow me to say, as the. person who returned thanks on behalf of the Committee to those who so kindly rendered assistance on that occasion, that while indiscrimwate praise of all public entertainments is, perhaps, one of the greatest faults of the colonial press, your reporter ap pears in this instance to have fallen into the opposite extreme, and to have censured several of these volunteer musicians-and that indi vidually and . by name-with a severity that would be justifiable only if directed against persons who were to be paid for services which from carelessness or incompetence they had proved ^themselves unable to discharge. We live at a great distance fromthe capita], and probably few of us have the opp...
