SADDLEWORTH. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) Jane 8. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 June 1870
SADDLEWORTH. (FROM A C©EKESP03TDENT.) Jane 8. The farmers in this quarter are anticipating splendid crops next year, and are consequently in better spirits than they have been for the lost three year?. The township is improving fast, and several new and handsome buildings have been erected lately, and there is a likelihood of a number of others being built before this time next year. The inhabitants about here will be highly elated when the railway is opened as far as the Burra, as they will then be enabled to take a trip to the metropolis and back in two days, and have sufficient time to transact their busi ness. There is no necessity for making any remarks about the rain fa;], as it is generally known that this part of the district has come iu for its full share.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 June 1870
MISCELLANEOUS. BircYiire FACES.-Nothing is more common than to read of people who, under certain condi tions of grief, "bury their heads in their hand?," This will account, we presume, for the largo number of grave faces that we see about us every day. UNKIND.-Old lady to her niece: " Good gracious, Matilda ! but it's cold. My teeth are actually chattering." Loving niece: "Well, don't let 'em chatter too much, or they may tell where you bought 'em."

Fifty-nine persons, of whom 20 were deputies, were killed, and 125 were injured.

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 June 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Bsrossa correspondent of the Crawler Times thus writes:-" Since my last we have had splendid rains, which admits of washing being proceeded with, and full operations night and day at the crashers. It is believed there will be sufficient water now for uninterrupted wort, and if so 4 or 5 weeks more will suffice to render merchantable the accumulated stocks of cement we have raised. That accomplished, we may hope for some revival of life and acti vity here, and this is really needed. The rush at the Moonta Hill is subsiding, nothiig of any account having been struck. A "rush" is a very good thing in its way, but the immediate issue has no infallibility about it. Productive ground has been found in scores of instances which has been condemned at first; and with* out going further, take the case of the Deep Lead. Hence, Watts, Storer, and parly have this week crushed 10 tons, which have given 41 ounces per ton, making amongst the very best crushings we have had on th...
