The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
gwgua. FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1870. ALTHOUGH in respect to mineral re sources South Australia is perhaps second to no country in the world, yet until the past few years we have never been startled by reports of rich disco veries of the precious yellow metal. At Echunga, it is true a few diggers have been quietly plodding on ever since the feverish excitement caused by the breaking out of the Victorian dig gings subsided, but their finds have not been of such a character as to at tract general notice. It became a fore gone conclusion that a payable gold field was a thing which South Aus tralia would never be able to boast of. On the opening up of Jupiter, however, an impetus was given to prospecting, which speedily resulted in the disco very of auriferous ground at Barossa. "Whilst the former place has long since fallen back into its original insignifi cance, the latter still retains its pres tige as being the largest and richest goldfield in the colony^-we were going to say that it is the...

WATERVALE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT) July 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
WATERVALE. (FfiOM A COEEESPONDEKT) July 26. Nothing of any importance has transpired in this locality of late, and the general topic of conversation is the weather and the crops. The former has been piercingly cold, and the latter are looking very well in this neighborhood, and favorable reports are constantly arriving as to their condition to the westward and other direc tions* So far the season has been very bene ficial to agriculturists, and has cheered their drooping spirits amazingly. Should we be blessed with good showers during the months erf September and October, we may confidently expect a heavy, yield of corn; in fact, the far mers are even now beginning to doubt whether a remunerative market will be found. The enthusiastic reports from the diggings are not causing mnch excitement here, as the ma jority of the people have very little faith in them. Our mill is hard at work at the present time, and is turning out flour of excellent quality. Mr. Paul Badcock has taken Mrs. ...

SUDDEN DEATH. It is with regret we have to announce the sadden death of a young man well known in this locality, named John Messenger. He was a mason, and resided at Serenhill, but was in the habit, when working in the neighborhood of Clare, of sleeping in a room erected by Mr. W. Kelly between his two limekilns. On Wed nesday night he ietired to rest about 10 o'clock, and had up to that time been conversing with Mr. Kelly, andaekedhimtotake a load of sand to Mr. Kinni8*s residence on the following morn ing, as he had quite run out. One of the kilns had been kindled in the evening, and a man was left to attend to the fire during the night, but refrained from entering the room, as he did not wish to disturb Messenger. About six o'clock on the following morning Mr. Kelly went to the kilns for the purpose of getting some har ness out of the room. On knocking at the door he received no answer, so went to the side, and crawled in through a window whicVi was partly open, when he stumbled ...

MCISELI/A.NBOtrS; The Standard reports of Mount Schanck r This volcanic m^unt, whi- Ii hss an inuriorbfce a monster bow], is generally supposed by geologists to have b?ea in a state of repose for the last twelve hundred years or there abouts. We have received some startling intelli gence from a correspondent at Allandale which would seem to indicate that like Vesuvius, after a lapse of many centuries it was about to break out into new life. The lelter we have had eays -et It seems the volcanic fires at or near Mount' Schanck are not altegether extinct.

A NIGHT ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
A JVIGHT -ADVENTUEE. The Standard?s Italian correspondent says the following* extraordinary story is going* the ronnd of the papers:-A wealthy grazier from the neighbourhood of Viterbo, in the Pontifical State, drove a quantity of cattle to market, found a buyer for the lot, and after making merry in town for the rest of the day after the fashion of his class sat out towards nightfall on his home ward journey in company of a neigh bour, who stood towards him on that footing of bastard relationship expressed in Italian by the term compare-one of the two that, is to say, was godfather of the other's child. The two compari proceeded together until their re spective roads diverged, and then, after drinking* a glass together at a rustic wineshop, separated. The grazier, who; made no secret of his having bank i note about him to the value of 5,000 j francs, the proceeds of the sale of his I bullocks, went on his way with a light j heart, and perhaps a somewhat unsteady \ gait, the consequ...
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NOBTHEBIT AEGFS ) SIR-Mr. Styles writes that hjs statement was that nearly 60,000 bushels of wheat fcad paseed down the lice already, but if be refers to his letter he will find it reads," That he had no hesitation in saying that double 6G,0C0 bushels of wheat bad gone down the line this year." At the time he published that letter the line was idle, therefore his statement could only im ply to the quantity that had gone down the line during the time I was lessee; an3 as the account he placed befcre the public belied the leturns I had sent in, I considered it right the truth of the matter should be known. What 1 complain of is that Mr. Styles should publish in a public journal, " without hesitation," mart you-for these are his words-what was totally incorrect. Had Mr. Styles acted a prudent part, and hesitated till he had gained know ledge on the subject, he would no doubt have written a very different letter. But it ap...

STRANGE RESUSCITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
STRANGE RESUSCITATION. It appears from the Lawrence (Kan sas) Tribune that there is in England an interesting- stranger, and that his presence there is due to exceptional causes. Dr. John Day, whose conflicts with the proslavery party, and whose exploits with the underground rail road while the fugitive slave law was in force, made him very notorious, was arrested at Battle Creek, Michigan, on the charge of procuring an abortion, and thereby causing the death of a woman who sought his services. On this charge he was found guilty, and sentenced to a long term of imprison ment in the State prison. As he was found dead in his bed one mornings under circumstances which strongly pointed to poison as the cause of his death, it was generally supposed that he resorted to suicide to ward off the disgrace which would result from im prisonment. At all events he was buried, and, as usual almost forgotten. It has lately transpired that he is still living, and is at present in England. He has sen...
STONES ON THE FOOTPATHS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 July 1870
STONES ON THE FOOTPATHS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) Sir-As a ratepayer I naturally suppose that when the collector of taxes pays his annual visit he expect me to pay my rate. Well as to that Ihaveno objection, provided it was properly expended. But I certainly object to keeping a Corporation in existence that places a quantity of inch metal upoa the footpaths. It may he beneficial to shoemakers, but it is extremely annoying to person B who are compelled to travel up and down the street several times during the day.' Goodness knows the foot paths were in a shocking plight before the Cor poration took to cleaning out the gutters, and placing the muck accumulated upon them. Probably the Council contemplate laying a coat of sand over the whole, but it strikes me forcibly they will not put on sufficient to cover the stones. - Hoping some steps will be im mediately taken to rectify the mistake. l am, Sir, &c., TODDY.
