STATE OF THE FOOTPATHS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 June 1870
STATE OF THE FOOTPATHS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS 1 Sm-With your permission I should like to draw the attention of our Municipal magnates to the slippery condition of the footpaths. As a ratepayer paying a heavy rate, and being likely to do so for some time to come, I cer tainly think that something might be done to make the footpaths in Main-street, if not those in others, more passable than they are at pre sent. I am well aware that the Corporation are heavily in debt, but at the same time I con eider that is no justifiable reason why pedes trians should be in danger of dieloeatirg gome of their jviiits or spoiling their wearing apparel when they pay for keeping the streets in proper condition. It would not cost much to put a coating of sand half an i:eh thick on both eidea of Main-street, and I most sincerely hope that eome of the Councillors will think it worth their while to bring the matter forward at their meeting on Monday next, as I for one have a great objection...

A respectable, jury of 13 having been sworn &nbsp; in, Mr. Durrant was chosen foreman. After proceeding to Mr. Hope's and viewing the body, the following evidence was adduced :- &nbsp; Mary Daly deposed; I reside at Walter Walter. About half-past 4 o'clock yesterday &nbsp; &nbsp; evening I saw the deceased Thomas O'Neill passing by the house in which I live. He was staggering as if under the influence of liquor, He proceeded about 20 yards, when I thought he sat down, I went out shortly afterwards, and on my return, in about an hour's time, my little girl informed me that Mr. O'Neill was sitting down, with water flowing from his mouth. I thought something was the matter, and proceeded to where he was sitting. On lifting up his head, I found that he was quite dead, I then calle...

POLICE COURT-CLARE. SATURDAY, MAY 28. (Before M>pere. Gower and Kimber, J.P.e.) Peter Long was charged with being an idle and disorderly person, having no visible means of support. John S. Roe deposed: About 10 or 12 days ago the prisoner was in Glare. He was about for several day?, sometimes knreling down and sometimes imitating the blowing of a horn. I took no notice of him, but others mentioned the circumstance to me, and said they were frightened. I thought he was harmless. The day before yesterday I saw the prisoner again at Auburn. The first thing he did was to go oa his knees right before me, and then jump up and down. Mr. Bleechmore said he was afraid to leave his house. He grinned and langhed, and I have every reason to believe he is out of his right mind. W. 3. Dix, police trooper, deposed : At seven o'clock last evening I saw the prisoner kneeling down with his hands upward?. He was making a great nois?. I considered him a lunatic at the time. I asked him where he live...

THE NORTHERN MAIL ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
THE NORTHERN MAIL ROUTE. On Thursday, June 2, a deputation, consisting of Sir G. S. Kingston, M.P., Messrs. H. E. Bright, M.P., Percy Wells, and W. Novice, waited upon Mr. Todd, the Postmaster-General, to urge the adoption of the route via Farrell's Flat for the conveyance of the Canowie and Biinman mails. They pointed out that the settlers on Farrell's Flat and between the Clare line on the one side and the Burra line on the other, had no means of receiving and sending letters except by poat-offices which were a very considerable distance eastward or westward, in some cases as much as 20 or 25 miles off, and they represented that the distance from the township of Hanson along Farrell's Flat to Canowie was 10 or 12 miles shorter than by way of the Buira. They urged that either the Biinman mail should leave Hanson instead of Davies Town, and pass along Farrell's Flat, or else that a branch mail should be established for the benefit of the settlers ia that locality, Mr. Novice stating...
GENERAL SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
GENERAL SUMMARY. Sir P. Wodebouee, in a speech to the Cape Legislature, counsels the colony not to accept responsible Government, as it would involve ultimate separation. The sprech attracted much attention, and has been discussed in Parliament. The second sale of Australian preserved meat was held at the Hop Exchange, in the Borough. The result was encouraging. At a meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, Sir Charles Nicholson gave an account of Forrest's explorations in Western Australia. Ia the discussion which ensued, the Imperial Government was condemned for assigning the Northern Territory to South Australia. The feasibility of breeding horses for India was strongly urged.

A Government circular has been issued to the Anstralian colonies, Tasmania, and New Zea land, aekice what prospects each offered to emigran...

THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IN INDIA. It is curious to remark how abso lutely tlie judgment of English society in Japan, China, the Straits, and India has confirmed the original impression of Sydney regarding the Duke and re versed that of Melbourne. At Hong Kong- and Singapore he is still, long after his departure, affectionately toasted as " The Stroke Oar," in allu sion to his happy compliment to Admiral Keppel. In Calcutta, the pubiic jour nals and private letters concur in describing His Royal Highness as a sensible, unaffected, gentlmanly young fellow-a man who would be popular and pleasant in any station of life. Of the arrogance, contempt for public opinion, and stinginess with which the Melbourne papers stigamatised him no one any were else has been able to discover a *race. We are rather sur prised at this. The command of a man of-war is just the position to develop arrogance even in a Quaker, and when to the despotic authority of a naval commanding officer is added the con scio...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. From Barossa, the Gawler Times correspon dent writes:-" We are still unfavored with rain, and therefore inanimate. The water secured at the crushers suffices only to keep them in partial operation, and whilst this con tinues everything will be just ditto. What a contrast to the eager, ceaseless, night and day activity of twelve months since, and yet it is just this one keenly-felt want-water-which makes everything to stagnant, for as regards the established character of the place as a gold field, its pretensions are immeasurably superior now than then. Then a couple of gullies and one hill were all that were proved to be pro ductive; now we have several more of the foimer and many more of the latter. To guide and foster development it is, however, indispen sable that reduction keeps parallel with produc tion-that the steam power should not be van quished by manual labor. Fending this dul nese, many are driven to the old gully working?, and though turned over and over...

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) June 9. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
WATERVALE, (fbom oub OWN coeeespondknt ) June 9. A "tremor" of the earth is said to hare occurred here last Thursday, though I cannot say I felt it. The circumstance is variously described by different individuals: one got *' such a turn," another was *' almost frightened into fits," while a third, who is supposed to have been standing over the very centre of the convulsed portion of the earth, became so elec trified, that a violent attack of the monopoly - theionice, which has rendered him helpless for the last century and a half, was immediately cared. There is little else to report, and for once we are almost thankful for the dulness, as it pro ceeds in great measure from the seasonable rains-which you of Glare are doubtless enjoy ing as well as ourselves-which keep all the farmers busy on the land, and cause others who are not obliged to go out to stick to their fire sides.
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN AEGTJS ) Sib-Mr. Jarman has evidently mistaken nay object in replying to his letter on the above subject. I wished merely to call attention to the classical scholar's incorrect statement, and in his reply he is not gentlemanly enough to thank me for bo doing, and not even attempted to substantiate his own. Mr. Jarman says we have good natural roads and other things in the district that we are npt aware of; and with reference to wheat, again comes in, and sayfl he is more capable of judging the probable yields of the future bar vests, not being interested. You do not know, Mr. Jarman, that in 1868 over 400,000 bushels were shipped from this port. Base your calcu lations on this sort of thing, and don't write nonsense such as the question you have asked the farmers and myself in your last, viz :-"If by the Port Wakefield Tramway you save 3d a busbel on all the wheat you grow, and the expenses of that tramway and...
