CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

CHRISTMAS. Our first Christmas number ! Precursor of the glorious time when whatever there is good in any of us achieves supremacy — in spite of us perhaps ; when selfish humanity realizes as nearly as it ever can the one touch of nature that ' makes the whole world kin !' Well, if the season retains its old significance and power we shall have small blame for occupying a few lines vrith a passing tribute to the time. Retains its old significance ? Of CGurse it docs. It is one cementing characteristic of j English, Scotch, and Irishmen that with them the love of Christmas never fades. They preserve that sentiment in all their wander Ings, in all the vicissitudes of enterprise and adventure, and no extremitj' of contrast can efface it. In all the new homes which English men have planted the advent of Christmas awakens sympathy and goodfellowship still. Even in antipodeal Australia our manner of celebrating the time varies oulyin its outward forms from the grand old customs of our fat...

GLENBURN V. FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

GLENBURN V. FINNISS VALE. There has lately been some action in Parlia ment with reference to the erection of a Police Station at Glenburn or Finniss Vale, the merits of which are not very widely under stood. Fortunately the question is now in a fair way for settlement upon wise and reason able conditions, but the pertinacity with which some two or three people will ijusstate the whole case induces us to refer to it. We do so especially because attempts have been made to impuga the motives of one of the represen tatives of the district in opposing the erection of the Station at Glenburn. Every one who has had an opportunity of watching the pro gross of Parliamentary events knows very well that Encounter Bay has been fortunate enough to secure in Mr. Everard one of the most able, Independent, and influential members in the Assembly, a fact that was especially recognized by the recent demonstration in that gentle man's honor at Port Elliot. We have not the least intention of flattering...

POETRY. THE CORN-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

POETRY. THE COHX-FIELDS. Not many varying months have passed — It seems, indeed, but yesterday — Since I was wandering by this way, And saw the seeds of corn broad-cast. Then came the time of tender leaf, Of sunshine and of genial rain. And now here waves the yellow grain, Ripe for the sickle and the sheaf. The seed was cast in dark brown soil, And from dull dusty -tinted mould, To emerald green and shining gold, The fields have changed with litite to'J. O'er acres rich, o'er acres broad, '1 he full ears rattle in the bretae, Aud sway and wave like waving seas, A hundred grains were one was strawed. Bat how this wond'rous life was born, Giew, multiplied, aud ripened here, In ignorance supremely sheer, I bow before a graiu of corn. 'Tis good in Git! to make it grow, And muluply a hundredfold — To man more precious ;bau fine gold— That's ail I know — enough to know I The marvels which we see to-day, ? May help our unbelief to sea Thj wonders of tbe Deity, Vouchsafed to men who've pass...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. The Lidner gun, which has just been tried in the presence of the Emperor Francis Jofspb and a special comm issio«, has given tbe following results : — In the space of five minutes a single gun fired 40 shots, which all perforated an oak plank an inch and a half thick at a distance of 200 paces. An im provement on the Prussian musket has therefore been obtained ; for the latter at two or three hundred yards only iuflicted wounds which were cured in three weeks. . The Emperor Napoleon will send to the Pans Exhibition of 18G7 a model for a workman's house, which unites with cheapness all tbe accommodations desirable aad the conditions required by the public health. By paying a moderate rent, one part of which would be devoted to a kind of sinking fund, the tenant would in a few years become tbe pro prietor of the house, that toeing, in His Majesty's opinion, one of the suiest methods of instilling habits of order and economy into tbe minds of tbe working classes.

A RUNAWAY MARRIAGE PREVENTED. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

A RUNAWAY MARRIAGE PRE VENTED. A contemporary states that a young gentle man of 19 summers, and who on coining of age will become the possessor of £100,000, lately went to Exmouth from Birmingham, where his guardian resides, in company with a tutor, to improve his health and increase his knowledge. The two took lodgings at the residence of a gardener, who had a very pretty daughter of about the same age as the young gentleman. From the first an ardent attach ment seems to have been formed on both sides, and the fair damsel soon forgot her old beau, who is at sea, and whose half -pay she has received. In the end the young people resolved to get married. The young lady left Exinouth on the night of October 14, by the last train, accompanied by her mother and her future husband, intending to remain at Exeter that night, and to be ' taken for better or for worse' the following Sunday morning. It j appeared, however, that the object of their departure was suspected, and a spy was sent in...
