MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

MISCELLANEOUS. Romance is Real Life. — A Taradale correspon dent of the M. A. Mail sends the following : — ' A rather romantic incident occurred on board the Great Britain on her arrival in the Bay last Wednesday — and thereby bangs a tale. In the earlier days of the gold discoveries, one of tbe sons of a very respect able family, living somewhere among the fens of Lincolnshire, was aSicted severely with the gold fever, and with little ado made his adiens, and sailed for the sunny shores of Australia Felix. Of course, like most of us, he only intended to stay here for a year or two, just long enough to make his pile. However, he arrived safely ; and, hardly deigning to look at Melbourne, rushed up the country to secure some of the big nuggets that were waiting to be picked up. Well, he didn't make his pile all at once, but stopped here long enough to become ' quite colonial.' That is, in the first place, he dropped writing home to his relatives altogether — donned a red shirt and a ...

DETERMINED ATTEMPT AT SELF-STARVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

DETERMINED ATTEMPT AT SELF STARVATION. The parochial authorities in Sheffield have been engaged in investigating a singular but determined attempt at self-starvation. ^ Some time ago a uiau named Watson, with his wife and three children, went to live in Gower street. The husbaud and wife lived unhappily together, and fifteen months since Watson took his three children and left his wife in possess sion of the house. Mrs Watson commenced sel ling newspapers and periodicals, but ae a simi lar shop was opened in the neighborhood her custom went from her. She being deserted by her husband, the loss of her trade, and other adverse circumstances appear to have affected her mind, and for some weeks past she appeared in a very wretched and despond ing state. More than a week ago the neighbors noticed that her house remained closed the whole of the day, but as she was heard roving about in her bedreom at night, little notice was taken of the occurrence. For several days the same thing was rep...

THE TRADE OUTRAGE AT SHEFFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

THE TEADE OUTRAGE AT SHEFFIELD. Another of those melancholy blunders which do infinite mischief aud not a* particle of good to the cause they are intended to promote, has been committed at Sheffield. That town had already been the scene of more than one trade outrage, and not always had the das tardly attempt to coerce the action of a fellow- workman been attended with results so comparatively innocuous as in the present case. It is but four years ago that an attempt to blow up the house of a mechanic named Wastnedge, in Acorn-street, was attended with the horrible mutilation of Wastnedge's wife and the death of an old woman who lodged with her. It was hoped at that time that tbe indignation which this atrocious deed called forth, would have prevented the recur rence of any similar tragedy in future. * * But such has not been the case. Never was there a more determined and horrible attempt than that which we this day record. * * * * * It would appear that the man against whom it was...

FOREIGN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

FOREIGN NEWS. The health of the Emperor of the] French is greatly restored. The plan for the reorganization of the French army is not yet completed. The Coiistitutionnel says that the Prussian landwehr system would not suffice in France. It states frankly that a standing army of 400,000 men is not enough for the necessities of the French Empire. It specifies two main points as essential : — 1. The number of years which soldiere of the regular army are to pass in the ranks cannot be diminished without depriving ' the first element of our military power of its necessary solidity.' 2. The minimum time strictly indispensable for drilling the reserve must not be reduced. In short, according to the Constitutionnel, the reform of the army cannot possibiy mean disarmament, but the contrary. There is to be a great and serious augmentation founded upon the principle that success in modern warfare awaits the power which ' strikes the fiist blow.' Tbe opening of the Paris Exhibition has been al...

A Husband's Liabilities. —An unusual and some what curious iastance of the liability of * husband for the debts of his wife was brought nnder the notice of Mr. District Judge Macfarland on Thursday. An attorney, who had been retained to prosecute actions against a husband for maintenance, sued for bis costs ; and the defendant was loth to bear the expense of services so unpalatable to himself, and rendered without his authority. For the defen dant it was objected — that he had not retained the plaintiff; and that, moreover, he had cautioned the public by advertisements in the Herald not to give credit ...

RAILWAY EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

RAILWAY EXTENSION, There is at last a probability that the question of railway extension will be boldly grappled with. The Select Committee to whom the question waa remitted have brought up a thoroughly practical and comprehensive report, and there is an undoubted disposition in both branches of the Legislature, and in the Ministry also, to give effect to a policy which has been already too long delayed. The session of 1866 will be indeed remarkable as inaugurating a new era in our legislation. It is true our law-makers have not yet wholly learned the truth that in a country like South Australia, possessing a vast territory and almost unlimited but still undeveloped re sources, the surest way to remedy the excep tional evils resulting from a temporary superabundance of labor is to increase instead of diminish our importations of that vital element in the extension of settlement and enterprise. Even during the year that has now closed we have seen the bugbear of the ' unemployed ' tr...

CAPE JERVIS. JFrom out own Correipondebt.] Cape Jervis, January 2. The anniversary of the Talisker Sunday school was held on Sunday last, when Mr Leak, of the Bald Hills, delivered two very able discourses. A public tea meeting was held on the 1st instant. The attendance was not so numerous as was expected ; but the day being so excessively hot, and a strong hot wind blowing, most likely prevented people from a distance being present. After the tea a prniWlc meeting was held, Captain Price being voted to 'the chair. Messrs Wilshire, Lee, Newbold, and C.

Our district girls' school is now minus a mistress — the late teacher (Mrs Parsons) having left a short time since for England. We have lately had some extremely hot weather and two days of high and hot winds, which have done considerable damage in places by beating out a great deal of wheat. Thistles are being destroyed generally throughout the district ; and I fancy if neigh boring District Councils use their energies to the same end, that ere long we shall not be much troubled with this pest.
