STRATHALBYN AND MIDDLETON TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

STRATHALBYN AND MIDDLETON TRAMWAY. On Wednesday last we paid a hurried visit to the operations now iu progress near the Finniss in con. nection with the long-looked-for line of tramway, designed at 110 very distant day to connect thia district with Strathalbyu. Our visit was of short duration, but it was sufficient to excite our surprise at the almost gigantic natnre of some of the works on many portions of tbe line embraced within contract No. 2. In all direct ions we found the utmost activity prevailing, and, notwithstanding the many dangers to bodily safety necessarily attending these extensive operations, we did not learn that a. single casualty had occurred since the contract had been taken, about 120 men are bere under employment in the. different gradations of laborers, carters, and overseers. About 40 horses and carts are employed in removing the earth from the cuttings to form the embankments if within a convenient distance, but in some instances this has to be supplemented...

CURRENCY CREEK VIADUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

CURRENCY CREEK VIADIUTT Celebrated as the South is for tbe magnificence of its coast scenery, a short distance inland there is a spot which fairly provokes comparison. TraveHinjt from the coast where all is tough, and broad, and grand, at Currency Creek we come suddenly upon a prospect of quiet beauty, haying all the charac teristics of rustic England; amd'we venture to say that as a home picture the -view from above tho bridge at Currency Creek has not its equal in South Australia. And this spot, so picturesque in itself, had yesterday an interest given to it such as the most sanguine could not have dreamt of even a very few years aeo. ' ? -. On the high ground above the bridge the line of tramway now in progress from Victor Harbor to Strathalbyn has to cross the creek, and for this purpose a viaduct has to be constructed, the first stone of which was laid yesterday wiih fitting honors. His Excellency turned the first Fod of this exten sion on the 1st of August last at Middleton, a...

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES AND SAVINGS BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES AND SAVINGS BANKS. TFrom the Dundee P-onU?s Journal- 1 Mr. Tidd Pratt's annual report of the pro- j ceedings and progress of Friendly Societies is j always an instructive document. It is so at least to those who have patience and perseve rance enough to plod through its columns of figures, and it is only in this way that useful knowledge can be gained. The perusal of such a report is one of the ways by which we discover the social and economical condition of the industrial classes. By this means we feel, as it were, the pulse of the community, and I satisfy ourselves as to whether it is in a healthy state. If Mr. Pratt has had a bad account to give of the twelve months' opera tions, we are warranted in coming to the con clusion that sometliing is out of joint in the social mechanism, whereas if that gentleman has something pleasant and cheering to tell us, we j are equally warranted in accepting his report as evidence that the social machinery is in a sound and he...

FINNISS VALE. Finniss Vale, December 19. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

FINNISS VALE. f From our own Correspondent. I Finniss Vale, December 19. The weather has been very changeable lately. Friday, Saturday, and part of Sunday were very warm, but on Sunday aftersoon a Gouiherly breeze sprang up, in the evening in creasing' to a gale, the effect of which was to shed a little of the wheat. Harvest has now commenced throughout the district. I ain eonry to say a considerable quantity of wheat has gone off lately, and in consequence tiia yield will not be as was ex pected. It will be some time before the .'iapiug machine will begin Its work. Fanners are generally in lovr spirits, year after year th._,y°ha- e tlie same old tale — short crops, and very often small prices. Some of them gay they will quit farming, at lea-t for a time, and go working on the roads. The weekly meeting of our Institute was held on Monday evening last, and there was a good attendance. Recitations, &c, were given by members, and a debate was initiated, the subject being 'Is th...

MILANG. (From our own Correspondent] Milang, December 19. The reaping machine is at work in a good many parts of the district, and we regret to say that the result will not be up to the antici pations formed a few weeks ago. Rust is very prevalent, and has done more damage than the forward state of the crops when it made its appearance would have justified any one in anticipating. j Great exertions are being made by the I carpenters and engineers to get the Telegraph ready for the pleasure trip, on Christinas day, to Meningie and back. There is no doubt of her having a full cargo of passengers. It is j expected that steam will be got up on Saturday.

CAPE JERVIS. Cape Jervis, December 18. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 December 1866

CAPE JERVIS. I From our own Correspondent.] Cape Jervis, December 18. The new smelting furnace at the Talisker Mine has been completed since Saturday last, and a slow fire has been kept to dry the masonry this evening, and to-morrow smelting operations will be resumed, v.hpn it is to be hoped large quantities of pig lead will be turned out, as there are some fine piles of ore laying on the floors ready for smelting. The weather here lately has been very trving — being so changeable — and several children are laid up with colds. On Sunday the weather was very hot until 3 p.m., when the wind suddenly veered round to the S.S.E., and blew a perfect gale, which I should imagine must have passed over some thon sands of miles of ice, as it really was so cold that we could almost fancy ourselves back in old England spending the Christinas holidays. The Campbell's Creek Company are making a move again on their mineral claims, two men having commenced work since I last wrote.

This report is, no doubt, born of the fears and gossip of the hour ; but in France it is said that the most serious apprehen sions are felt ns to tbe Emperru's health. Other accounts conflict with the foregoing statement. A .Pans letter of October 15, says: — ' The Emperor and Empress to-k yesterday a Jrip at sea on board a s earner, and were out four hourt?.

HISTORY OF A WOODEN SHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

HISTORY OF A WOODEN SHOE. fFrom Onee a HW;.J Towards the end of September, 1832, it was announced amongst the artistic circles of Paris that Nicolo Paganini had fallen seriously ill, at the conclusion of a grand concert given by the illustrious violinist. He was attacked by a low intermitting fever, which refused to yield to tne remedies employed, and even gave rise to apprehensions for his life. Paganini, whose leanness was already almost spectral, now seemed to have his frail existence suspended by a thread, which the slightest shock might sever. The phvsicians unanimously ordered solitude, ahsolu:e repose, and a strict regimen as to diet. In order to carry out these prescriptions, i Paganini removed to the Villa Lutetiana, in i ihe Faubourg Poistsoimiere. This excellent ' establishment, which no longer exists, was in tended exclusively for the reception and cure of wealthy invalids. A spacious comfortable '- house stood in a large, parklike garden, where ; each patient could ramb...

THE TWO HARVESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

THE TWO HARVESTS. But yesterday these few and hoary sheaves Waned ou the golden harvest ; from the plains I saw the blade shoot upward, and the grain Fut forth the unripe ear and tender leaves. Then the glad upland smiled upon the view, And to the air the broad green leaves unrolled, A peerless emerald on each silken fold, And on each palm a pearl of morning dew. And thus sprang up and ripened in brief space All that beneath the reaper's sickle died, Ail that smiled beauteous in the summer tide. And what are we? — a copy of that race, The later harvest of a longer year ! And oh.' how many Ml before the ripened ear .' LONGFELLOW.

TOBACCO SMOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

TOBACCO SMOKING. Although the plant itself is of portly mien, prepared tobacco has nothing which pleases or invites the eye ; while to the taste, the smell, the 6tomach, it is at the outset absolutely offensive. Who is there who does not remember the painful experiment of learning to smoke? Amongst others, Napoleon I. either never could or never would learn. In Egypt he pretended to smoke — as he held out bis possible con version to Islamism — to please the Egyptians by adopting their customs. Bat he never could light . his pipe himself. It was his Mameluke Eoustan's dutv to set it going. If his master let it oat again. charcoal and matches were not ruinously expensive. Afterwards, when the Persian Ambassador presented him with a very handsome pipe, he ordered his valet de chambre, Constant, to fill and light it The fire teing applied to the mouth of the bowl, all that re - mained was to make the tobacco catch ; but in the way in which His Majesty set about it no emoke would have ap...

MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

MARRIAGE. In an article on ' Marriage,' in Hall's Journal of Health, it is stated that marriage is the natural state of human kind, there never can be lasting good health without it ; it is an impossibility, except combined with criminal practices. A person may live in good health to tbe age of 25, but if marriage is deferred beyond that, every month's delay is the eating out, more and more, the very essence of life, and tbe worm of certain disease, and premature death burrows tbe more deeply into the vitals. On the other hand marriage not later than 25 prolongs life. It was for this reason, noticed 3,000 years ago, that tbe ancients dedicated a temple to Hymen the God of youtb ; that is, to the deity which prolongs youth. Men and women get older more rapidly when they remain single, and die off more rapidly ; the men from falling into dissipated habits and irregularities. The woman true to nature's instincts, and living in her purity, grows less and less vivacious, and by slow degr...
