The Horthern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 1, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870
FBIDAY, JULY 1, 1870, Our neighbors at the Burra have been living in hopes of better times coming" for the past two or. three years; but, unfortunately, their expectations have been wofully blighted, and the place lias:, be^n goiiig; fronx bad to worse, until it has arrived at its present di lapidated condition. However, pros pects of a brighter future are looming in the distance. Farmers have settled ? in the neighborhood, and although the - success they have achieved in agricul tural pursuits has not been marked «s y6t, still there id a pro? ability of the next harvest being a good one, and by that time they will he able to take advantage of the benefit offered by the Government in the completion of the Northern Extension Railway. It is evident: that had not this line been constructed, farming would be but a poor speculation in the vicinity of * Kooringa. From, the nature of the .soil and uncertainty of the climate, no -reasonable individuals could expect to obtain a succession of...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 July 1870
MISCELLANEOUS. We (Queenslander) are assured that the fol lowing is a capital wash (substitute for paint) for outbuildings, hen and cow houses, stables, &e., and that the same ingredients preserve shingles, and renders them waterproof. The wash is truly Australasian, and is composed of lime, wood ashes, or sand and salt $ say 3 lbs* of salt to a bucket of lime, and as much ashes as it will carry and remain at the consistency of good thick whitewash. It is put on like ordi nary pant, and can be made thicker for old and cracked timber, or when it is desired to render the painted building as near fireproof as any m?re wash could. It fills up cracks, and makes a fine even surface when well laid on. A new patent W8sh for wool eeoat&ig been introduced and tested in Melbourne which is stated to be a success. The Telegraph adds That the wash will serve its purpose there seems to be little doubt, and the question then conies in as to cheapness. There seems to be some reason t...
INFLUENZA AMONGST HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
INFLUENZA AMONGST HORSES. The cold frosty nights, alternating with summer warmth during, the day, are trying to the health of most ani mals. In London and many other large towns, as well as in most coun try districts, there has during the last four weeks been more sickness amongst horses than during the previous four months. Changing their coats, as horses are at present, they are weak, and particularly susceptible to colds. Over-heated in the warm and almost scorching sunshine, they get chilled in the biting north-easters. Sore throats according^ have been very prevalent. In many places the congestion and swelling about fauces and throat have come on very suddenly, and have proved so intense as to threaten suffo cation, and for some days to render the swallowing, alike of food and water, painfully difficult, and in some cases almost impossible. Considerable fever occurs, rendering the mouth hot, the pulse and breathing quickened, and the temperature of the surface of the body unequ...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. Since ray last various events have occurred here. Heavy rains have fallen, flooding the old gully working!), and thereby driving out many who were remuneratively employed amongst them. This will prcve, however, but a temporary inconvenience, as the water now possessed will admit of all there being more systematically and advantageou-ly exhaust* d by puddling machines and other appliances, it being now fully ascertained that all the old gullies will pay for subjection to this mode of treatment. Britcher's establishment has been disposed of to half-a-dozen practical men, en gineers and diggers, and is now designated the " Barossa Crushing Co." Each proprietor assumes his place at the post of labor, and the Company are sanguine as to its success. The following are the quantities crushed since the suspension in March last: May. June. To'al.

PLANTING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
PLANTING POTATOES. In the last numbers of our English agricultural papers, " an improved practice" of planting the potato is re commended whereby a much larger return per acre of this tuber is said to be secured. The *' Old Country" grower contends, and we cannot contradict him, that the amount and quality of a potato crop depends in a great mea sure upon the preparation of the soil, the manures wsed, the varieties planted, and the after management. The grower | mentions raising twenty tons per acre as an average produce of potatoes of superior quality. The same authority not only asserts this, but enters into | detail as to the modus operandi. His practice is to turn up the ground deeply in the autumn, throwing a portion ot the subsoil upon the surface, to be acted upon by the winter frosts. " Previous to planting in spring, a good dressing of burnt earth is applied-this being the only manure used at time of planting. The ground had, however, been pre viously well manured for the p...

The Aouthern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
ftftt 3foirtlwLni gurps. FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1870. OCCASIONALLY W© hear a voice agitat ing for the construction of a railway from Port Augusta northward, and we think such a work highly necessary, as it would without doubt prove profitable to the colony at large, and more espe cially to the residents in the Far North. It is an established fact that this region contains unlimited mineral wealth, and there is no doubt it has been greatly underrated. As to these resources, let us take, for instance, the Blimaan Mine. That this property is of great importance is undeniable ; it has proved itself so by yielding ore of a rich percentage. This, when brought to grass, goes through the process of smelting, so that nothing but pure copper is sent from the mine; in fact, that is the only way of rendering mining a paying speculation. By the present mode of transit, if ore does not contain a rich percentage of copper it is comparatively useless, as the ex penses of working, with the cartage added, e...
AUBURN. July 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
AUBURN. July 5. The nomination for fire Councillors for the. District of Upper Wakefield lranej.ired jeite»« : day. A Jar^e number of the ratepayers were .: present, and all came prepared to vote for some particular person in whom they placed full con- ' fidence; consequently there was not the least possibility of five gentlemen being selected from amongst the 15 who were nominated, Whichj would have done away with the necessity of a' poll. There were seven nominations for Au*; aitors, and a poll was demanded for both Au ditors and Councillor*. The election is fixed to take place on Saturday next, when there is likely to be considerable excitement. Sods disappointment is felt at Mr. Arthur King not being nominated, ss that gentleman's services, in the Council are considered to be almost in*; distensible. However, although Mr..Sing's! retirement is universally regretted, it is hoped' and believed that Mr. Richardson, if elected,! will in course of time supply the loss. | A large quan...

[From the Adelaide papers.] LATE TELEGRAMS. London, June 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 July 1870
[From the Adelaide papers.^ LATE TELEGRAMS. London, June 10. ] In tlie House of Commons Mr. Gladstone ssid that the correspondence relative to the Marathon affairs was not complete. Despatches had been received explaining in a satisfactory manner that sccret relations apparently existed between the brigands and persons of rank in Athens. Several weeks must elapse before the Government can decide on what policy they are to pursue. Lord Clarendon stated in the House of Lords that a despatch from Athens reports the con demnation to death of seven brigands. The Committee of the House of Commons has adopted the Irish Land Bill, and the first reading has passed the House of Lords. G-overnment has granted a sum of £1,000 sterling fur the purpose of aiding the expedition in search of Dr. Livingstone. A family of seven persons have been murdered near Uxbridge. The murderer has been ar rested, and stated his motive to have been re* venge. Four Englishmen have been carried off by brigand8, nea...
