From an early hour in ihe morning in every direction might be observed preparatioas for a day of recreation, and as neighbor met neighbor tbe stereotyped but welcome and kindly greeting of ' A Happy New Year to you' was heard on every side. Arrangements were made by tbe Superintendent of Tramways to dispatch trucks to and from Goolwa and Port Victor more frequently than usual, but that gentleman bad evidently made too low an estimate { of the number likely to avail themselves of the...

STRATHALBYN. [From our own Correspondent.! Strathalbyn, January 2. Christmas and New Year's Day — those seasons of joy aud gladness to many, though of sorrow to some — have come again ; and after a few hours of joyous smiles, happy greetings, fresh assurances, and kindly desires they have once more departed for ever. On New Year's Day was inaugurated the. new arrangements for the carrying of the South-Eastern mails. The mail-coach arrived in this township between 2 and 3 o'clock thia morning, some enthusiastic individual playing lustily on tbe horn during tbe passage of the vehicle through tbe township j but I doubt if his musical efforts were appreciated by those whom he aroused from their slumbers. The Sandergrove mail is no*.v discontinued. There was some talk of reduced bus fares not long ago, but no reduction has yet taken place, and we now hear nothing about it.

THE PROPOSED INSTITUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867

THE PROPOSED INSTITUTE. TO TBE EDITOR OF THE BOUTHERH ABSCS. Sir — I was very sorry to see the Rev. Mr Howell's letter in your issue of Saturday last. Yet I think wo should err in viewing it as tho expression of bia deliberate, fixed opinion, and honest conviction. Better is it, in my judgment, to attribute his letter to one of those momenta of despo idencv so frequently assailing earnest men, sanguine of success, and im patient of obstacles to tbe attainment of any given object. The apathy of the public, with regard to the estab lishment of an Institute, I may admit to- be great, but the failure of a first effort is not sufficient evi dence of tbe fact, and is, mereover, hardly consistent with my rev. and respected friend's former statement that ' so many people have expressed to me their regret, that they cannot get access to a library .' Much penetration is not needed to assign causes for Mr Howell's temporary disappointment, apart from the general indifference of the public, and...

THE EMPLOYMENT OF WOMEN. f Daily A7-irji.| In connection with the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, in the department for economy and trade, a meeting was held on Friday afternoon in the Crown Court of the Assize Courts, 'for the pro motion of the employment of women.' The Earl of Shaftesbury presided, and the Court ?was crowded, a considerable poition of the audience being ladies. The Chairman eaid their object in meeting was to consider if in any way they could give employment to women who possessed a certain amount of education — not for those who became occupied in mills, or in ordinary service, but those who, having some education, wished to know how they could turn it to account. The path was not altogether a new one ; for some successful experiments had already been made. Women had been employed in printing, in bookkeeping, and in telegraph offices. He had 6een 400 women employed \u one department of telegraph despatches, and they were open to a etill ...

THE GUILLOTINE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867

THE GUILLOTINE. [Correspondent of the Mcrning Star.] The last meeting of the Academy of Science was entirely devoted to a report drawn up by M. Dubois, which treated of questions which cannot fail to excite general interest, viz., who was the first originator of the guillotine? does this machine produce instantaneous death ? does it create suffering ? does life and sensation exist in the head 'when once the latter is severed from the body ? It is generally be lieved that the guillotine was invented by a French surgeon whose name was Guillotin. This, however, appears to be an error, inas much as the first originator of the idea seems to hare been a surgeon of the name of Louis. It would, in fact, appear, according to the revelations which have been made by this learned body, that in 1792 Dr. Louis, Secre tary to the Faculty of Surgery, directed a German mechanic of the name of Smith to construct a machine, with which he made ex periments on the dead bodies issuing from the hospital a...

FIRE ON BOARD THE SHIP JOHN DUTHIE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867

FIRE ON BOARD THE SHIP JOHN DUTHIE. [From the Sydney Empire.] This fine ship, which arrived on Wednes- day afternoon, after a favorable passage, from London, had only been a few hours in port when she was discovered to be on fire, and was scuttled and sunk on the north side of the harbor, at an early hour yesterday morning. The John Duthie was built for the Australian trade, by Duthie and Son, of Aberdeen, in 1864, and since that time she has made three voyages to Sydney. She came to an anchor at about 5 p.m. in the stream, and shortly before 1 o'clock yesterday morning the watch on deck discovered smoke issuing from the ventilators of the fore hold. The alarm was given to the captain and to the chief officer, who had a short time previously retired to their berths. The crew all turned out, and the ship's force pump and donkey-engine were got to play on the part where the smoke was coming from, but finding the fire increasing, the deck was scuttled to let the water below. In the mea...

THE ART OF CONTRADICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

THE ART OF CONTRADICTION. It may be possible to get through life with out denying any statements, but to get through it without resisting any demands one would have to spend it in a desert island. Most of us naturally shrink, especially from this form of contradiction. How few people have the courage to refuse, except under the shelter of an obviously sufficient obstacle, real or im provised, any invitation given by word of mouth. Yet the occasions for practising this branch of the art are much too valuable to be thrown away. It is at least as essential to excellence in this as in the first branch of the art, that the performer should be free from the agitation of inexperience. If you must refuse an invitation to the inviter's face, perfect calmness may be the one thing that redeems your action from rudeness. Self-possession carries with it a strong appearance of being in the right. A good conscience is as bold as a lion ; and though it may be unfair to assume conversely that where ...

THE ADVANTAGES OF EARLY PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

THE ADVANTAGES OF EARLY PLOUGHING. I Mr John Ltraen, land steward at Newcastle, read a paper on ' The Advantages of Early Ploughing.' He said : The common practice of the ordinary farmers of the country is to plough late, to plough when they should be sowing ; and if you ask them, why they don't cultivate earlier, you get the answer that if the land were turned up it would be ' too cauld' for the seed. These men do not see the pernicious consequences, else they would surely change their practice. It is well for all tillers of the soil to have a wholesome conservatism of all good customs and habits which are really beneficial. But why not in farming take advantage of all the recent im proveinents which have been found to work so well? Late ploughing produces bad crops of every kind, unless they are forced by the strength of the land. It pauperises the tenant, or has a tendency to do so ; therefore, we say, it ought to be given up at once, and the early ploughing adopted with all its ...

POETRY. SOMEBODY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

POETRY. SOMEBODY. Somebody's eyes have grown dimmer, Off in some quaint old home, At morn, when the evening stare glimmer, Watching for some one to come ; Watching while heart grows sicker, As day aftor day glides along. Watching while tears fall the thicker, — Choking the lullaby song. Somebody, wandering over Lands far away from his own, Scents, as of old, the sweet clover, That grew hy the old door stone ; Longs to go back and to mingle, As in the dim days of yore, 'With those round the old cottage ingle Those who, alas ! are no more. Somebody's prayers are ascending Ever for dear ones away, Prayer that His blessing attending May keep them from going astray ; Prayers that float nearer and nearer The throne of the Father above, And reaching the ear of the Hearer, Are answered hi Infinite Love. Eomebndy's life work 13 ended — Patient they wait now to go ; Long have they faithfully wended Toilsome paths here below; Soon the reward they'll be reaping That to the faithful is given — '...
