The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

Hfte IJqfltp gups. FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1870. IT is some satisfaction to know that the Central Road Board has not alto gether forgotten the Main North Road, as we find they are repairing certain portions that have previously been me talled. We do not find fault with that body for «o doing, let it be understood; but at the same time we cannot help arriving at - the -conclusion that it is a most singular method of working when there are so many bad and even dan gerous places that have never had a stone put on them.. It is well to keep the metalled portions of the road in good repair, but it is more reasonable to conclude that1 the Board should first put a sound bottom all along it before they commenced more elaborate opera tions. : Some; time ago We drew attention to the deplorable condition of that portion of the main road near the Penwortham Mill. Another bad spot of about twelve chains, half a mile or so to the north of Water vale, requires very much' to be put in a passable condition^...

GLARE CORPORATION. MONDAY, JUNE 20. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

GLARE CORPORATION. MONDAY, JUNE 20. Present-Councillors Fels. Treleaven, and Powell. The newly elected Mayor, Mr. Andrew Young, took the oath, of allegiance to her Majesty the Queen. The minutes of previous ordinaryaud special meetings were read and confirmed. The fallowing tenders were received for the erection of a footbridge across the Hutt Biver in Giee3on-street:-Messrs. Godlee & Robinson, £10 15s; - Flavel, £9 15B ; D. T. Jarman, £810a. . The Mayor said he thought all the tenders were too high, as a bridge to suit the require* ments of the ratepayers could be, in his opinion, erected for the Bum of about £5. Councillors Powell and Fels also considered the tenders high, and that the work ought to be done for less money. The former proposed and the latter seconded that the matter be held over until next meeting. Carried. The Town Clerk stated that he had not received the Public Works Committee's report on Main street and the street by Nulty's. Councillor Treleaven stated...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. The Baroesa correspondent of the Gawler Times writes:-" Our crushing power is now at the maximum of its speed, and the fine rain* which have fallen will effectually indemnify us sgrainjst any further delay in the reduction of the stocks of cement here. Kelly and party obtained in all 41 ounces from 10 tons of Goddard's Hill, and but that the parcel had been plundered of a part of the very richest of its hulk out of the hole, Mr. Kelly assured me it would have run fully 5 ounces to the ton Boubalt & Co. crushed a parcel from the same hill, which gave them nearly 3 ounces to the ton. Thus the ground eastward of Spike Gully still maintains its position as contrasted with that westward of it, Victoria Hill included. Though we have lately had some splendid results from the cement^' the fact is our crush* ings in the aggregate so far have fallen rather below expectation, and particularly so from the more recently opened hills, where quantities of cement were broken...

ALBURN. June 21. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

ALBURN. June 21. io-aay was observed as a gepejal holiday amongstthe comtnereiaV community of Auburn, as veil as at the Government festablishments. Owing, however, to the dull times, no amuse ments were , got-up.. Perhaps1 it was just as well, for the day was very wet and .sloppy; ia fabt, just audi a day as tends to dishearten indi viduals who have been to the trouble of getting up a little out-of-doors amusement for tb& benefit of-the public. - . - .: . - ' By-the-bye, it is not generally known that there is a pack of half-a-dozen hounds in this township. It is a fact nevertheless, and the owner, Mr. N. Sowton, took them out for a run' this afternoon, followed^ by a few. of his friends. On returning they were , questioned as to-the result of the hunt, but somehow did not feel inclined to satisfy the inquisitive propensities of their friends; and .the genera) impression was that there had been very little stiff fencing. There is a probability - of a hunt club being establis...

CLARE AMATEUR DRAMATIC AND BURLESQUE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

CLARE AMATEUR DRAMATIC AND BURLESQUE COMPANY. The old members of the Dramatic Club, with a resiliency that does them credit, and in spite of the loss of several of their ablest coadjutors, have made the accession of new blood into their society the spur to renewed exertions, in which they bare certainly succeeded better than might hare been anticipated. The series of perform ances extended over three nights, and consider ing the dulness of the times, wet weather, dark evenings, and limited advertising, were as well supported as perhaps could reasonably have been expected. A new act drop, representing the Grand Canal in Venice, had been painted by Mr. Page, and would really have done credit to a more portentious stage, the perspective being faultless, while the coloring and general harmony of the whole picture were in excellent keeping. The orchestra was filled by the Clare BrasB and Striog Bands, and appeared to afford very general satisfaction. "The Dramatic Club" formed the openin...

A BASE ACTION. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870

A BASE ACTION. 1 (To the Editor of THE HOBTHEBN ABGUS \ Sis-If it would not be trespassing too much on your valuable columns, I should like to m&ke known to the public what I consider the basest action any person could he guilty of, viz., that between the hours of 6 pirn.:on Monday, 13th instant, and 8 the following morning, some evil disposed person took some wild oats (which from their appearance were' apparently taken from a hay staek), and strewed them on my section, lately purchased from Mr. Gleeson, and which is virgin soil. I : think the public will agree with me in thinking tfeat a person who would do such a thing would stand at nothing, not even fire. I hope I have not. takeft %p too much of your valuable spade,-but I think such vile practices should be made known. " I am, Sir, &c., JOSEPH BOWDEN, CLARPJ 3UOE 22,1870. ^ ;

WATERVALE. (FIIOM OUfi OWN CORRESPONDENT) June 30. We have now had nearly three weeks of thorough old-fashioned Australian writer weather; indeed it is many jea*s eince so much rain has fallen in the same space of time; and the creek has at times " come down" with great force, endangering and partly overflowing Mr. J. Badcock's new embankment, though this was partly remedied before much damage was done. Mechanics have been at a standstill, and stores and shops nave been left to the pro prietors and their assistants, and even the pub licans have been heard to grumble in spite of the large amount of " heavy wet" daily on tap. Messrs. King & Go. are advertising another large sale of "stock-in-trade," and second-hand j furniture, fcr Friday, July 8th. I am informed the goods -mil be removed to Mr. P.

HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870

HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NOSTHEEN ABGUS) SIR-Having rea i! several letters written by Mr. Styles in reference fo the Port Wak field Tramway, I have to aek the favor of being allowed to reply to some of the absurdities that he has thought fit to ptace before the public. Mr. Styles writes that he has no hesitation in saying that double 60,000 bushels of. wheat have gone down the line this year. Now, the truth ij», that the /quantity did not" exceed 70,000, and 20,000 of that was sent by me from Mintaro and Auburn ; and if I had not been the lessee of the line I should have gained one penny per bushel by sending it per Northern route. In proof of this, I may here mention that no farmer or wheat buyer has sent any wheat this season via Port Wakefield from the eastern side of the ranges. Mr. Styles also alludes to the probable quan tity that may go t here next season j but it is evident he lias only imagined as to the quan tity, as the average in t...

THE GOLDFIELDS. The Bunyip reports:-We have received «».? formation that the dams of the Victoria Quartz Crusher at Barossa have been washed awiy owing to the recent heavy rains and force oi the mountain torrents, 'ihe supply of cem?n is not now sufficient, to keep the crusher at work. Four hundred and seventy-six: tons hav<. been crushed this season. From reliable au thority we learo that the average return of gold has not exceeded half an ounce to the ton, al though we hare recently had to record a case of four and a half ounces to the ton. Mr. No te* liius has resigned the tffie of manager, and has been succeeded by Mr.' Bssanco. A deputatio 1 from the Baro3sa Diggings, consisting of Mr. W. H. Russell and Mr. A.

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870

THE WEATHER. Durir.g tbe past, week the weather has been extremely wet aiid stormy; in fact, seme old residents contend that there has not been such a heavy rain fell in one week for the last seven years. Whether this is correct or-not we are not prepared to say, but Clare has certainly had its share of rain during the last eight days. It commenced to fail on the morning of the 23rd uit. and continued with very little intermission the whole of that day and part of the next night. The two following days were somewhat finer, and Sunday was all that could be desired ; but during the night the weather again changed, and besvy shoWera descended the . next day, ac companied with a strong north-westerly wind. The weather was more moderate; on Tuesday, and very little rain fell here, but it must have come down in torrents to the southward, as about 6 o'clock the Hutt River began to riee rapidly, and in the course of two hours the water had reached the top of the banks in place3, afrer which...

MISSING STEAMSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870

MISSING STEAMSHIPS. ! Total disappearance, with the loss j of all on board, has been among- the rarest of disasters, recorded of ocean j steamships. The President, which left | New York on March 11, 1841, having! among- her passengers Tyrone Power, the comedian, a son of the Duke of | Richmond, and other noted persons, is in this dismal catalogue, and so is the ! City of Glasg-ow, lost in 1854, and the Pacific, in 1856; hut it might be [difficult to name any other vessels of j similar character, that have sa vanished | j and "left not a rack behind." Con sequently, the chances would be that, as in the cases of the troopship [ Birkenhead, and the packets St. ' George, Central America, Sarah Sands, [ Austria, Anglo-Saxon, and London^ a | ; greater or less number of the passengers of the now missing craft may have been saved. Such, it will be remem bered, was also the fact as regards the Lady Elgin, sunk by a collision on Lake Michigan, September 8, 1860. Of her 385 passengers 287 peri...

CAPTURED BY BRIGANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870

CAPTURED BY BRIGANDS. A correspondent of The Times. writing from Salonica on tlie 5th of April, says: Having1 lately had a visit from a young Greek, just escaped from the custody of the brigands in the moun tains of Thessaly, I think it will not be uninteresting to your readers to give a short account of his capture, capti vity, and escape. He is one of four brothers, possessors of coasting vessels, and inhabitants of Kariza, a village situated at the foot of Mount Ossa. It appears that two of his brothers and another inhabitant of Karisa were re turning to their homes from the sea coast, a walk of about an hour. They had got about half-way, and had reached a spot romantic in its solitude, and abounding in rocks and trees, when they were suddenly surrounded by eight brigands, who appeared as if by magic from their hiding-places, armed to the teeth-this well-known phrase in this case being literally verified, as the brigands carried their swords between their teeth ready for action i...
