LIMP PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 August 1870

LIMP PEOPLE. Vice is bad, and malignant wickedness is worse, but" beyond either in evil results to mankind is weakness . which, indeed, is the pabulum by which vice is fed, and the agent by which malignity works. If everyone in this "world had a backbone, there would not be nearly $,s much misery or guilt as there is now; for we must give each individual of the "cruel strong" a large following of victims; and it would be easy to ~ demonstrate that the progress of nations has always been in proportion to the ' number of stiff backbones among them. Yet, unfortunately, limp people abound, to the detriment of society and to their own certain sorrow; molluscs predes tined to be the food of the stronger, with no power of self-support, but ; having* to be protected against outside dangers if they are to be preserved at all; and perhaps when you have done all you can do, not safe even then, and most likely not worth the trouble taken about them. Open the grates for but ' a moment, and they ...

EXTRAORDINARY STORY LORD BYRON. Under the heading*, "The True Story of Lord Byron Out at Last," a correspondent of the Madras Mail, who signs himself " CEdipus," makes the following extraordinary statement: -<( The true story of Lord Byron's separation from his wife is very simple, though very curious.. My father had it from one of his: lordship's most inti mate friends, and I propose to give it in a succint form exactly as it was told to me by my father, or as nearly as I can recollect it, just 15 years ago. On his wedding day, as all the world; knows very well, Lord Byron was in an unnaturally excited Btate of mind, and his bride's somewhat prudish be haviour towards him tended to increase: his perturbation. When the pair started together for, the place where: they had resolyed to pass the honey- ' moon, tliey had an altercation which did not augur well for their future happiness, and after receiving some slight provocation, Lord Byron was be trayed into bursting out in...

A NEW AMERICAN SECT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 August 1870

A NEW AMERICAN SECT. A correspondent of the New York World of May 1 gives a curiou9 account of a new religious sect which, under the name of " Jehovah's Band" has lately arisen at Moco pin, a village in ^ew Jersey. The fonnder was one Nathaniel Marrill, who according to the World's correspondent, one day in harvest time, " finding the sun overpoweringly, hot re* tired to a neighboring wood, and sat down beside a tree to refresh himself with some apple-jack, and take a tnorze." Instead of a snoczhowever, he was seized with an irre sistible desire to fly, and, climbing the trer, be spread out his arms, and threw himself for ward, but instantly fell to the ground. At this moment his bottle of " apple-jack" was brought to his lips by some invisible agency, and Mr. Merrill, taking " a horn,*1 rushed towards the meadow where he bad been engaged hay* making, and in the short space of twelve minutes accomplished the building of nearly 50 haycocks, aided by setne unseen power.

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 August 1870

FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1870. AT 3 meeting held in the Temperance Hall, North .Adelaide, on the Istinst., a Mr. James Cumming- read a paper on the subject of " The superiority of a system of leasing- in perpetuity, instead of selling, the Crown lands of the colony." His ideas were that such lands are the property of the people, and it was not to their advantage to sell them at a nominal figure. He argues that the Government disposes of the land, and the purchaser lets it and receives a perpetual income. Mr. Cumming is evidently correct in this respect, to. a certain extent; for have not the land jobbers in bygone days bought every acre of ground they could possibly lay hold of, to the detriment of the popula tion and the revenue ? They have also taken care not to part with any except at exhorbitant prices. Mr. Cumming characterises the Land Bill at present before Parliament as most unwieldly, and believes it will not be beneficial to the agriculturists. lie goes on to say that the people ...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 August 1870

ADELAIDE. (FKOM OTJE OWN COREESPONDENT.) .Tnlv 2FT The first impression of a bushman on ar rival in Adelaide are eo varied that it is im possible to describe them all, but some of the most prominent are, the sloppineBS of the streets at the present seas an, the great improvement in the public buildings and places of business during the lest few years, and the rapid growth of the suburbs in every direction. The busy streets, though dazzling and bewildering to the Knight of the Swag, soon are made pleasant by the constant recognition of many a familiar face knovn long since in some country town chip, or Far North station ; though occasionally the gratification is sadly qualified by falling in with some old and dear fr eud, with thread bare coat and slouching gait, who, before Groy der'fi valuations and the bad seasons, occupied a high positioo, and made good use of a well filled puree. However peoples* spirits seem to be rising, and as the season progresses we shall see things becomin...
