JAPAN. (From the "Hamilton Spectator.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869
JAPAN. (From the " Hamilton Spectator.") In describing- a lady, a detailed ac count of her dress is so pre-eminently necessary that I would preface my remarks with an elaborate description, but I am happily saved that task, as I noticed in one of the Spectators you were kind enough to send me, a very good account thereof, copied irom the Revue Des Mondes correct in all parts. The personal appearance of the female varies much, those of one district forming a distinct contrast to those of another, in one they are coarse and ug-ly, in another tall and fair, another plump and pretty, and so on, with as many variations as there are districts in the country. I can only speak of those amongst whom I am living. To one in whose mind the bonriie faces, lithe and graceful figures of the fair ladies of Hamilton are fresh, the contrast was anything but plea sant-funny, and seemingly distorted figures, dull and inexpressive faces. But after a time the distorted grow graceful, and dull faces becom...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869
KEW ZEALAND. Two strange accidents have occurred in Canterbury. A man fell in front of a reaping machine, and had his lower jaw cut off by the knives. Another was gored by a bull, whose horns went in at one side of the chest and came out at the other side. During a fire at a private house in Belfast, on Saturday, Dr. O'Hara, in endeavouring to escape, fell from a third storey window and received so much injury that no hopes are enter tained of his recovery. A meeting of working men has been held at Liverpool for the purpose of raising funds to present a testimonial to Mr. Gladstone. A sum of nearly £600 has already been subscribed. The Duke de Guise, only son of the Duke d'Aumale, was last week thrown from his horse in the hunting field , and fractured his leg. ^
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869

TOBACCO CULTURE. (From the "Melbourne Economist." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869
TOBACCO CULTURE. (From the " Melbourne Economist.") Some months since intending tobacco growers were informed through the advertising columns of our papers that £112 per ton would be given for good sound tobacco leaf. Many embarked in the speculation, and some few suc ceeded, although adverse seasons had to be contended against in some dis tricts. In those localities where the rain was most partial, and the land and system of culture suitable to the crops, the returns were highly ratisfactory the yield equal to a ton per acre, and the price obtained a paying one. In a contemporary's late issue an illiberal remark is made by a contributor in the Mornington district to the effect that the offers of the above amount per ton were "empty bubbles," and never intended to be anything more than a trap to intending growers. In justice to our manufacturers of the u leaf" in Melbourne, we can assure all up-coun l?y cultivators that not only was £112 per ton given this season, but that the growe...
CHRISTMAS AMONG THE NEW ZEALANDERS. From " The London." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869
CHRISTMAS AMONG THE NEW ZEALANDERS. From " The London*/5* The manner of conducting tlie pro ceeding's was somewhat as follows : An extremely old gentleman, with a distressing1 amount of ophthalmia and scrofulous disfigurement, and with nothing to cover his shrunken and tottering limbs but the before-men tioned kilt, rose with his spear-shaped staff in his hand, and manifested a desire to express his opinions. Being, as brother Jonathan would call him, " an everlasting big bug," his words were waited for with profound atten tion, and he, accordingly, stepping into the midst of the circle, commenced his edification of the company as sembled by obliging them with a song, which vocal effort, it is needless to say, was rather piping and shrill, the chest . notes being nearly all delivered in a cough, «nd the falsetto, principally in a wheeze. Having brought this little prefatory piece of music to a conclu sion that was highly satisfactory to himself, at all events, he proceeded to furthe...

PENWORTHAM AND SEVENHILLS RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 April 1869
PENWORTHAM AND SEVEN HILLS RACES. These races came off on Easter Monday in a paddock between Pen wortliam and Sevenliills. The course was very heavy? and consequently the running" was nothing* very extra ordinary. There was a fair attendance j including a few of the fair sex. The racing was very good on the whole for a country place. The first race was for a saddle, the favourite being Mr. Krinewitter's Prince of Orange, which is not a had hack and appeared rather too strong for his competitors, Hanns and Judy. The second race was lor a first-class saddle and bridle, and being the grand event of the day, caused some little excitement. Mr Krine witter's bay mare Lucy was the favourite on account of her great strength, but she was evidently in no trim for racing. FIRST RACE. Hogskin Saddle.

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. V1CTOBIA. A fine little boy named Portlock, seven years of age, was sent with a message by his mother, from Chewton to Golden Point, the other day, and on his way home, fell into an old drive and was drowned. Another large nugget, says the Inglewood Advertiser, and the largest yet found at Berlin, weighing 893 ozs., was found on Friday morning at the new rush at Lingham's flat, in the 20ft sinking by Patrick and James Hore, two old Kingower residents who had lately being living at St. Arnaud, who has returned to join in the rush. Their claim is opposite Mr. Thomas's newly erected store, some distance down the lead from the claim in which a few days ago a 201b. weight nugget was found. The Melbourne correspondent of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser tells the following story about Mr. Walter Montgomery. That modest individual appears to have been better appreciated at Albury, that "horrid bore" as he called it, than at the Melbourne Club. The correspondent says:-" Many o...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 6. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869
ADELAIDE (FBOM OUR OWS C0EEESP03SDEKT.) April 6. One thing is evident, that the metropolis is not always the place to obtain newe. Since jour last letter everything has partaken of the general dreariness that is usually supposed to follow the 1st April, and the only indications of liveliness are to be seen in the signs which preceed the approach of winter. The city, plantations, and park lands becoming now rapidly clothed in nature's livery. There i->, however, one eutject of regret, and that is that that interesting publication *' Adelaide Punch," whom everybody expected would have lived for any length of time, led by the genuis of a a few spirited contributors, has colapFed, not receiving sufficient support from the public to warrant the publishers continuing it longer. The curiosity of those who wish to know what horrible revelations the Stockade enquiry will bring to light/:still remains snsatbfied, the reason being perfectly inexplicable. Soma few weeks ago the delay in prod...

KOORINGA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) April 7. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869
KOORINGA. (FCOSI OUE OW3T COBEESPOKDELFT ) April 7. Easter lias come and gone with its usual amount "of feasting and chapel anniversaries, all of wlncli passed off With great success, notwithstanding dulness of times. Farming operations are likely to be carried on this year on a very enlarged scale judging from the stocks of agri cultural implements which several of our storekeepers have bought, and which from my own observations ob tain a ready sale. Much speculation is rife as to the value the South Australian Mining' Association is likely to put on the pro perty in the Burra; the leases having generally but a very short period to run. Messrs. Fry, Brothers, it is under tood will have about finished their con tract on the end of the Railway line in a month. Where the terminus is to be still remains a mystrv. wby and where fore no one can tell. One of our tradesmen is believed to be very much troubled with a horrid nightmare which makes "night hideous."

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 3. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869
WATERVALE. (FBOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 3. Our little township still exhibits signs of progression. Several improve ments are nearly completed, and I hear of numerous enlargements in contemplation. The members of the Forresters' Court, and the Mutual Improvement Society, steadily increase ; and I believe the latter intend giving ai grand literary and musical entertain-1 ment on the 21st inst., which will! doubtless be a great attraction, as every one was greatly pleased with the last performance. The Bible Christians held their anniversary on Easter Sunday and Monday, when the place was thronged with visitors. A terrible accident, attended with fatal results, happened to a lad 15 years of age, and son of Mr. Reuben Solly, last week. The boy was out at plough, and while attending to the coupling-strap, which had brokon, he got in between the horses, which started off, dragging the ploughshare into the poor lad's leg. He was taken home, and every attention, medical and otherwise...
