PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of the Northern Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 May 1870
PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of the IVORTHERN A BQVS.) Sir-I have just read a letter of Mr. D. T. Jarman's, published in your issue of the 13th, and I think that before making such sweeping ' allegations, it would huve been as well if Mr. J; had made himself better acquainted with all : the facta of the case In point. 1 believe the g rearer portion of Mr. BadcocVs losses were made prior to his becoming lessee of the Fort Wakefield Tramway. Whether this linp, if properly worked, will pay, tbe future only will decide; but a cltar profit of £ 8 d. alone is not always a gain to the country; for increased facilities of traffic not only benefit particular districts, but, by opening up their resource', the community at large participates in the beneficial results of cheaper and more enlarged communication. The next time Mr. Jarman quotes Latin he should, for the information of the million, add the translation thereof. I am, Sir, &c., J.u Hoyleton, 21st May, 1870.

THE MISTRESS OF THE SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
THE MISTRESS OF THE SEAS. With the insolent swagger wliicli appears to be natural to some ver}T young* communities as well as to some very young men, certain colonies affect to think and speak of the mother coun try as falling' into decreptitude. The only justification of such a presumption is that her foreign policy is marked by less pugnacity and precipitation, and by greater prudence and self-restraint, than it was in former years. She is not so &lt;( sudden in quarrel" as she was in the last and at the beginning of the present century; and she finds the pacific conquests of her commerce more efficacious for the increase of her power and her greatness than successful battles upon either sea or land. More over, she occupies an assured position amongst the foremost nations of the world. Ilcr rank is indisputable. She has no desire for territorial aggrandise ment: She occupies a larger area of the earth than any other nation; and as the great American orator observed, she is...
COMPULSORY EDUCATION IN NORWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
COMPULSORY EDUCATION NORWAY. The following are extracts from a letter rectived by a gentleman in town from a friend in Norway who lifts care^ fully studied the question of compulsory education there :-" Christiana, 21st February, 1870.-There may be various opinions as to the working of the law; but the general opinion in this country is most decidedly in favor of compul sory education, though not so decidedly in favor of compulsory confirmation. There is a prevailing notion that what is right should be legally enjoined, and that what is wrong should be legally forbidden-an old school notion which will take some time to eradicate. I need scarcely remind you that it is a notion to which I am entirely opposed. I think- we should all get on much better if Government were limited to the administration of justice (by re pressive means), and to the manage ment of such public works as might be facilitated by use of the Government machinery ; and would leave religious education, trade, and b...

UNDALYA RACES. Judge-P. McATamara, Esq., J.P. Stewards -Messrs. J. Ward, N. Sowton, T. Crowe, W. Saiytb, and W. English. Starter-Mr. E. Rivett. ? The above race3 took place cn Thursday, 26.h u.tirno, in a paddock kindly lent for the occa sioa by Mr. P. M'JSTamara, J. P., about a mile south of thfi bridge crossing the River Wake field. Considering the dull times and season I of the y ear, the programme was liberal. Several hundred persons assembled on liic ground to witness the sports, which they anticipated srouM be good, as several cracks, well known to the sporting community, were on the ground. Some of the horses were in admirable trim, amongst which was the plucky little horse Darkie, whose performances on .the tnrf are perfectly well known, and were sufficient to rank him first favorite for the plate, notwithstanding the opposition of Mr. Freeman's powerful bay geldipg Frank, which has any amount of bone and muscle, but on the present occasion was not up to his compeer in condi...

THE GOLDFIELDS. From Eehunga, on May 28, a corr* spondent, wh > f. t rs us (&egi t r) with his name, write* in the interest of th>se who depend upon gold diggag-fjt their livelihood as to the prospects of a payable goldfield being opened up for the approaching winter, especially as it is probable that xh s who have been wo: king on the Onka paringa for the last four or &e months will have to abandon their claims as soan as the heavy rains set in. Hearing that there were diggrrs at work on a see'ion about a mile and a half from the M *adowe Inn, and that they were getting g »1^, the writer, with one or two others, decided on visiting them to ascertain wl a was being done. They founi that two or three shafts h«d been sunk, and the men, in one instance at 1 ast, had obtained that morning by puddlia* l cz 4 dwts; in fact, the digges appeared very well satisfied with their morn ing's work; They had, I belieye3 obtaiaed a few ounces previous to this.

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1870. A CRISIS of an unusual and rather expeditious character has just taken place in consequence of the successful issue of Mr. R. C. Baker's want of confidence motion on Priday last. About midday on Saturday the Attor ney-General tendered to his Excellency -the Governor the resignation of liim . self and colleagues, which, it is almost j needless to say, was promptly accepted. Within a few hours Captain Hart was sent for, and entrusted with the forma tion of a new Ministry, and after very little delay, that gentleman submitted the following team, which, in all pro bility, was thoroughly organised before the Strangways administration had ceased to exist: Chief Secretary, Hon.W. Milne. Treasurer and Premier, Hon. Captain Hart. Attorney-General, Hon. R. C. Baker. Commissioner of Crown Lands, Hon, A. Blvth. m/ Commissioner of Public Works, Hon. J. Carr. The above list is undoubtedly an influential one, and gives promise of being tolerably long-lived, as most of the gen...
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, MAY 27. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, MAT 27. The House met at 12 o'clock. Sir G. S. King?tun was elected Speskir. After a short adjournment, the members again met, and appointed the various com mittee?. Ihe Attorney-General (Hon. H.B. T. Strang ways) moved-" That a Committee, consisting of Meters. Cottrell, Gleegon, A. 3?. Lindsay, Watte, and the mov- r be appointed a Com mittee to prepare a draft address in reply to Ilia Excellency's opening speech, and that his Excellency's epe« ch be referred to such a Com mittee, to report on Tuesday, May 31." Mr. Bafcer propose*? an amendment, and said he did so as a distinct expression of want of confidence in the present Ministry. He moved that instead of the gentlemen named, Messrs. Glyde, Townsend, Carr, Mann, and Baker be appointed. Mr. Playford seconded the motion, which was carried by a majority of 20. The House then adjourned. TUESDAY, MAY 31. The Hon. Mr. Strangways and the Treasurer (Hon. J. Hart) made statements respecting the chacgc cf Minist...
AUBURN. May 31. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
AUBURN. Mav 3L Kofbiag of any great importance has trans pired in the above township during the past few days, with the exception of a change in the weather. Fur several days indications of a change have been apparent, and it came to-day, although very mildly, and as yet BO gleat quantity of rain has fallen. There is one thing that should be brought under the notice of the District Councillors, so that the evil iuaj be remedied as speedily as possible-it is the condition of the footbridge over tHe creek parallel (east and west) with the poet office. At present it is dangerous to pedes trians, there being only one side-railing; and as the bridge itself is not more than two l'ect wide, there is some danger cf persons falling over into the creek, which would net be so pleasant as it would be cooling. The bridge is more u&safe by being arched, as after a shower of rain it is very slippery. It is to be hoped the present councillors will not let, it remain in its present state unt...

HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN A SOUS.) Sir-As I know that no man can reasonably hope to reform any public abuse without incur ring he indignation of those whose interests are affected thereby, I am in no way surprised at the extremely illogical letter of Mr. John JStjle9 in your last issue, who seeks to impugn my approximate estimate of the probable traffic on the Poit WakefieM Irani way. As eelf-interest is the guiding principle of the bulk of mankind* I will lay cdde that. " John Styles" is in busi ness at Port Wakefield, and is consequently interested in upholding and defending any scheme (no matter how ruinous to the general community) that, in vulgar parlance, will bring grist to his mill. Now, though Mr. Styles'a letter is hardly worth a reply, yet, with your permission, Mr. Editor, I will demonstrate its selfishness and absurdity. Mr. Styles opens his letter with some personal allusions to the recent election, which, as that electio...

CHINESE NOTIONS OF ECLIPSES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
CHINESE NOTIONS OF ECLIPSES. The Chinese generally have no ra tional idea of the cause of eclipses. The common explanation is that the sun or the moon has experienced some disaster. Some even affirm that the object eclipsed is being- devoured by an immense ravenous monster. This is the most popular sentiment in Fuhchau in regard to the procuring cause of eclipses. All look upon the object eclipsed with wonder. Many are filled with apprehension and terror. Some of the common people, as well as man darins generally, enter upon some course of action, the express object of which is to save the the luminary from its dire calamity, or to rescue it from the jaws of its greedy enemy. Mandarins must act officially, and in virtue of their being officers of govern ment. Neither they nor the people seem to regard the immense distance of the celestial object as at all interfering with the success of their efforts. The high mandarins procure the aid of priests of the Tauist sect at their ya muns....
