AMATEUR CHRISTYS' ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 August 1870

AMATEUR CHRISTYS' ENTER-   TAINMENT. The second entertainment of the Star Christys took place in the Clare Hall on Friday   evening, August 12. There was a moderately fair attendance, though not so large as on a former occasion. The appearance of the per- formers was a decided improvement. The musical programme was identical , with the last, with the exception of one fresh song, which   was rendered exceedingly well by Mr. Evans. A fragment, entitled " The Black Statue," was also a fresh introduction, the leading characters in which were Messrs. Lohe and Rowson. The piece was gone through in a creditable manner, but in our opinion was overdone. It is all im- portant to the success of a piece to know the proper moment when to leave off. In this case, however, that precise moment was allowed to pass, and the piece was unreasonably protracted. Had it been one-half the length, it would have left a far better impression upon the audience. The burles...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

THE GOIiDFIELDS;1! The Gawler Time*, Barossa correspondent ^reports :-The heavy rains have greatly checked digging operations and carting during the week. To eajr nothing aboat the -gullies, which are at a positive standstill, the water in the hiils ha3 proved very troubleEOive, necessitating in severalinstances the sinking of fresh ; boles and the cutting of deep trenches around others to carry off the surface water, which by per meating through the loose gravel makes such havoc ofeven the deep shafts. On the Deep Lead, Reardon,, who bottomed poor, has ob tained a highly satisfactory prospect of coarse go'd.

THE CORPORATION AND THE ROADS. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

THE CORPORATION AND THE BOADS. (To the Editor of THE ^OETHEBJT ABGFS ) Sir-Being a very diffident person, and having an instinctive dread of Editors, I do not often trouble them with effusions from my pen. But my inBtinct of self-preservation has in this instance overcome my modesty; hence this letter. Well, Sir, some time ago a large sum of money was expended by the Corporation in order to improve Main-street. I tay impuote, but should yon demur to the void you ma; useany other you may deem n.ore suitable; for I think it might be lees difficult to prove the expenditure of the money than the im provement of the street. True, there are those in present Council who had no share in that work, and may therefore disclaim any participation in praise or biame for the manner in which it wus done; but when we find public works ea:ricd cn in an equally defective manner by present Corpora tion, no time need be wasted in attempting to prove the superiority of the new men to the old. As a specim...

NEW BIBLES.' [COMMUNICATED.] The great change which the English language hat undergone since the time of James. 1st, as well u the progress in Biblical critic3m owing to the researches of modern scholars aml^lm provod knowledge, of eastern languages and cnatotts, have for a long time been creating ad impression that our present version - of - the Bible might be improved. By such & revision, it has been said,<( many preachers will be- de prired of their favorite textsbut- truth, at all hazards, ought to be maintained. The Bishops and Clergy who meet under thb name of the Convocation of Canterbury have just determined that: it is desirable that a revision of the authorised, version of tne Holy Scriptures should be undertaken, and have appointed two Committees j one consists of nine of their members for the revision of the Old Testament, and one of seven for the New.

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) August 17. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

AUBURN. (FJROM OVA OWS CORRESPONDENT ) August 17. We still have showery weather, which is making our streets almost impassable for foot traffic. The corner opposite the National Bank is quite dangerous, especially after dark, in proof of which I met an old gentleman wend ing his way to chapel,.but euddenly floundered in the mud in frying to avoid a deep gutter, washed" out by ..the water. Something really ought to be done at this corner especially, and the district roads from here to Saddlewortii are ope continuous bog, and quite impassable. There is very little, if any, improvement in trade yet, everything seems stagnant.: A very narrow escape of a serious conflagra tion occurred at the National Bank premises, on Sunday morning at about 4 a.m. The servant girl was awoke by the children cough* ing from the effects of the nursery being full of smoke, when she aroused the inmates, and on examination it was found that the books in the Library were smcu'dering.

THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

THE LAND BILL. The opponents of land reform, ore IcySdently trembling at the prospect of the Bi'l ROW be?, fore Parliament becoming law. Defeated so far in their opposition in the ITohsp, they have resorted to the desperate expedient bf endeavor ,ing to set the people against the measure. By out advertising columns we perceive that a demonstration is about to be made in Clare,; it> the shape of a public meeting to be heid in the Town Hall for the purpoee of . considering ti e new Land Bill. We take it for granted that the objects of this meeting are hostile to ttfc new measure, and therefore we think that the subject calls for a few remarks; . We would just- ask our readers to remember the following facts: - There iB no wheat producing country in the world where -the average yield is less than iu South Australia. f There is nodependency of the British Croton where the price bf land is higher thx» in South Australia.

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE AT A MESMERIC SEANCE.-One incident not set down in the pi ogramme occurred at Madame Sibley's eeanceat Huntly on Thursday evening, which is worth recording. The eubject was mesmerism, and the fair lecturer was about to illustrate her remarks as to the insensibility to pain on the part of one of the youths^ then mesmerised, by thrusting a long pin into 'his arm,, when an in dependent elector ..advancing to the stage, in order, as was supposed^ to have a better view, took advantage of the opportunity to seize with his teeth the hand of the unfortunate subject of the proposed operation, and bir, him most savagely.

STOCKS FOR VINE-GRAFTING. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

STOCKS FOR VINE-GRAFTING. (From the Australasian.) As the season for this important operation is last approaching, the ques tion is often asked, ought we to graft the more tender or less vigorous varieties of the grape vine upon stocks of stronger habit, or is there any advantage re sulting from the practice ? The effect of grafting a plant upon an older stock, that is, upon one which has attained to something like the full vigour of growth, is, in a general way, to render the graft more vigorous than it other wise would have been; but there are some collateral considerations. There must be a fitness in all the circum | stances of the case. The .stock must be such as to suit the (conditions of soil in which it is to grow; and -there must be a sort of constitutional affinity between the stock and the graft'. These points bringthis question entirely within the range of experimental cul tivation. In the case of the vine the | fitness would depend upon the hardi hood of the stock in res...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

WESTERN AUSTRALIA PEDITION. The exploring expedition fitted out by the Government of Western Australia, arrived in Clare on Tuesday, August 23. The party con sists of six men, including two natives, and 15 horses. The men look exceedingly well, and exhibit no indications of having met with much privation during the journey. The horses are not in very good condition, most of them having sore backs. Their poorness is ac counted for by the fact that after leaving Fort Augusta, owing to the numerous- sheep stations the grass was short in comparison with the luxuriant feed met with during the reBt of the journey, and the horses lost flesh considerably. The party have been nearly five months in accomplishing the journey, having during that time travelled a total distance of about 2,000 miles. Of this distance over 600 miles was through unsettled country. In traversing this comparatively unknown territory one solitary relic of the presence of man was met with, con sisting of portions of th...

BRIGANDAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 August 1870

BRIGANDAGE. A horriblestory of brigandage reaches us from Chili. Don Gomezey Lagoberon, a .famous bandit captain who, from his fastness in the Sierra Profounds, has long defied the Chilian authorities, was: recently pursued, with the brigands under his command by a body of troops, which succeeded in cutting him off &om his followers, and driving him to take refuge in a cavern situated near the summit of one of the lofty mountains constituting the above-named range. In this cavern he had concealed a female captive, whose husband he had robbed and slain, and whom he had for some time compelled to live with him as his mistress. The soldiers made several attempts to reach the entrance to this cavern, to which there was only one means of access-a mere mountain goat track ; but Lagoberon, a man of gigantic stature aiid Herculean strength rolled heavy rocks down upon them, and succeeded in beating them off, after several men had been severely injured. The officer in command, unwill...
