ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. At a recent meeting of the Paris Chemical i3ocietyr M. Scheurer Xeatner rfai a paper on ft'-ie composition of fca-ul and recent bones. He finds that bones which have bfen baried for long period* obtain, besides ossein, which is insoluble in water, another organic nitrogenous substance, soluble ra water,. and into which he supposes ossein to be slowly changed. Run ning water gradually removes this soluble mo dified oseetn, and consequently the ancient bones found, in loose im pervious soils eon tain very little organic matter, while those- buried in com pact clay may retain a large quantity of it The rate of decamposition thus varies with the nature of the soil; but in the same soil M. Scheurer Kestner believes that the relative age oi different bones can, to a considerable extent, be determined by their chemical composition. An examination of the cavern of Mont Chau vaux, in the province of Namur, has convinced M, Spring, the Be%»z> anthropologist, that the men ...

ANTIPATHIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

ANTIPATHIES. Sir Walter Seatt says thatix pork or | swine's flesh in any shape, till of late years, was much abaminated by the Scotch; nor is it yet a favorite food |amongst them." King James 1. car ried this antipathy to* j$agla&d, Ben ;Jonson has recoaxked this peculiarity, i where the mastj.ue^ examining thekkig^s hand, says:-" Y©» should by this line, Love a horse and a hound, but no part of a swine." James's proposed banquet for the. devil was a loin of pork and a. pull of ling, with a pipe of tobacco for digestion. Several of the tribes on the banks of the famous African river Zambesi have as great a loathing of hippopotamus meat, as Mohammedans, Jews, and Hindoos have of swine's flesh. Dr. Livingstone's pilot, Scissors, was an illustration. He would not even cook his food in apot which had con tained hippotamus meat, preferring to go hungry till he could find another; and yet he traded eagerly in the animals tusks, and ate with great relish the flesh of the foul-ieedi...

MIRACLE WORKING IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

MIRACLE WORKING IN LONDON. A man, calling himself Dr. Newton who asserts that he hns received power to perform miracles, has been inviting the sick and maimed to attend at Cam bridge Hall, Newman street, to expe rience the benefit of his miraculous agency. A gentleman, writing to a contemporary, thus describes the pro ceeedings. About 100 persons of both sexes were crowded tege ther at the upper end of the hall, and in the centre of a small space between them and the plat form stood Dr. Newton, in his shirt sleeves, callingupon the diseased to come forward and be healed. Grouped in different parts of the hall were some blind, many lame, and many paralysed persons, waiting* for an opportunity to get to the front. In his frequent ex planatory remarks to the people around him, he said he did not perform the miracles by his own power, but by the Divine power which was given him for the purpose, and by the presence of which in the hall every one was blessed. When a patient was placed in ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

.. ? , --^^ > f i. there was one5 subject upon which the country spoke out clearly and iin mistakeably during the recent elections, it was the1 question of land reform. The auction system of disposing of the; waste lands of the Crown was em phatically condemned, and the unani mous voice .of the people demanded a radical change. Men of undoubted ability, and Parlfementary,expe rience,, w;ere rejected; siriipiy because they would not pledge themselves to support a-more liberal land measure, and men far beneath them in intellectual calibre and political influence were chosenin preference. The liberal terms offered by the neighborino colony of Victoria were draining the colony of its best population, and nothing, it was thought, but a thorough revolution in our system would save it from total collapse. With only one or two exceptions, the members of the j House of Assembly were returned solemnly pledged to pass a Bill infi I nitely more liberal than the wretched jschfeme which was la...

AMATEUR CHRISTYS' ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

AMATEUR CHRIST YS' ENTER TAINMENT. The Amateur Star Christys, made their debut before ihe public of Clare on Wednesday. last, in the Town Hall. Considering the weather and the condition of the roads, the at tendance was remarkably good, about 120 persons being present, the msj irity being in the front eeats. Respecting the general ap pearance of the performers, it was on the whole good, and some of tbem might have passed current as the veritable descendants of Ham. The uncurly hair and unnegrp pronunciatipn of others, however, immediately betrayed their Anglo-Saxon origin. The first part of the per formance consisted of musical pieces, inter spersed with negro drolleries and local hits, moBt of which were well received by the au dience, and elicited uproarious merriment.. The entertainment commenced with the chorus " Marching through Georgia," well rendered by the whole company. The eolo '' Canadian Boat Song," by Mr. Walters, fol lowed, which was also creditably performed. The Comi...

THE LATE CART ACCIDENT. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 August 1870

THE LATE CART ACCIDENT. (To the Editor of THE UORTHEEST ARGUS.) Sir-Allow me to insert a few lines in your columns in reference to the late cart accident. I think it my duty to correct the statements which appeared in your paper on the 22nd and 29th ult mo, directly after the collision. When I recovered from the accident I made, it my business to see if any of the occupants of Mr. Chapman's cart were seriously or fatally injured, and the lady who was in the cart with Mr. Chapman told me that '* no boneB were broken." In the meantime I went and examined the horse, cart, and harness. Neither the shafts, nor the springs, nor the splashboard were broken, and to the beat of my belief the harness was only a little damaged. In refer ence to the horse bolting, it must have been after we left Mr. Chapman, for one of the young men in the cart, with me went after the horse, brought him back, and delivered him to Mr. Chapman before we left. I don't wish the public of Clare to be under the impre...
