THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 July 1870

THE GOLtoFIELDS. From Barossa the Gawler Times' corres pondent reports:-" The great event of the week is the rush at the Green Hill. The Warden attended on Monday afternoon last to award the prospecting claim to Noltenius and Party. The prospect broken on the occasion was highly satisfactory, and the scene was most exciting when, as the prospectors drove in their pegs, such a clamorous contest ensued to secure the ground intervening between their boundary and the parties already at work outside, the final adjustment of which liad,hy the Warden's direction?, to be determined by lot. The rush haB since become one of large magnitude. The prospectors bad sunk in Beveral places west ward from the Green Gully up the side of the hill, the holes being in the mullock-bank, tili the one where their claim is now situate, and here an apparent lead has been struck, widening into the hill, and richer, it is believed, than any which has been previously discovered on this field. It would be impolit...

A SHIP ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 July 1870

A SHIP ON FIRE. Captain Begg, of the Orient liner Murray, met with an apalling adven ture on his passage here, which is fully described by our shipping reporter. There is something terrible in the thought of 190 human beings meeting such a sad death. It must be a source of satisfaction to Captain Begg to know that he was able to do something to wards rescuing the survivors:-The loss of a ship by fire is at all times a most appalling spectacle, but when it is known that a number of fellow creatures have perished by lire and water in one fell swoop, it becomes doubly so; and in one of these terrible dramas the Murray played an important part, although powerless to rescue many from the devastating* elements. Cap tain Begg gives a graphic description of the occurence, from which it appears on the night of May 26th, in lat. 23 deg. 40min. south, long, 37 deg.

THACKERAY'S OPINION OP DICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 July 1870

THACKERAY'S OPINION OP DICKENS. This tribute to Dickens is extracted from the hitherto uncollected papers of | Thackeray :-" And now there is but one book left in the box-the smallest one-but oh ! how much the best of all! It is the work of tfce master of all English humorists now alive, the young man who came and took his place calmly at the head of the whole tribe, and kept it. Think of all we owe Mr. Dickens since those half-dozen years, the store of happy hours that he has made us pass, the kindly and pleasant companions that he has in troduced to us; the harmlesslaughter, the generous wit, the frank, manly, human love he has taught us to feel! Every month of those years has brought us some kind token from his delightful genius. His books may have lost in art, perhaps, but could we afford to wait ? Since the days when * The Spectator' was produced by a man of kindred mind and temper, what books have appeared that have taken so affec tionately ahold upon the public as these ? The...

REMARKABLE GOLD FINDS. (From the Register.) From Blumberg on Tuesday morning our local correspondent writes ** Two discoveries of wonderful richnees were made last week* Pay after day specimens had been found surpassing anything eeen here before, so rich that a visit to the locality would be needed to satisfy most minds of the truths fulness of the report?. The first in order of time was discovered by Mr. Nation on Crown land?, tfouttewest one and a half miles of the German .Beef, and about the game distance from the Hannaford.

CORPORATION TENDERS. (To the Editor of THE NGBTHEBV ABGTTS.) Sin-Having bad some experience in tender ing in conne3tion with corporate and other bodies for 30 years, both in tl is colony and England, and in contradiction to " Unsuccess ful Tenderer," I Bay the Clare Corporation com mit ted no breach of morality, because they had rejected all the tenders a week before. There's an old saying, and a true one, "Men are known by their works;" so era they bj their writing, hence I know your complainant. So listen, Mr. Ex-Functionary: There was a time when ^would-be) scientific stars blazed forth their light at the public's expense; bat the time has arrived for something better to be done than hitherto in public Works. I ran assure the *s Unsuccessful Tenderer" that the estimate for the new bridge was not baaed upon his ten der. I am really astonished that such a (wouH be) great contractor should condescend to ten* der Tor such a petty affair-far below his genius. I think there will be ten...

SKY RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870

SKY RAILWAYS. A sky railway is composed of an endless wire-rope^ in two lines, which may be called the up-line. The rope is supported on" a series of pul leys, carried by substantial posts, the intervals whereof may vary from a few feet to a thousand feet, according* to the nature of the country, but which are usually about two hundred feet. There is a drum at one end, the loading end, of the line, around which the rope is wound; and steam or water power is employed to give aav desired veloctiy to the rotation; in practice, a veloctiy which drags the rope five or six miles an hour is generally deemed sufficient. The boxes are made of various* size and degrees of substantial ty, to receive loads varying* from a hundred weight to a quarter of a ton each. Without hanging too closely together on the rope, two hundred of these boxes may be easily despatched in an hour : each forming a kind of tiny railway train by itself. Each box is suspended from the rope by a pendant of peculiar shape...
