ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES WRITTEN BY A PARENT ON THE DEATH OF THREE OF HIS SONS. DEDICATED TO SORROWING PARENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 September 1870
ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES WRITTEN" BY A PARENT ON THE DEATH OP THREE OF HIS SONS. DEDICATED TO SORROWING PARENTS. God gave us children, but he said I'll take them back again; In this sad world of sin and death They may not long remain. Now, see you bring them up for me. Remember they are mine; And should I come to take them hence, Let not your hearts repine. Teach them to know and love my name, Even in their tender years; Teach them to trust in him who came To dry up human tears. But ever keep a faithful watch, For I may quickly come, And any moment from your arms Convey them safely home. Time sped away, and one by one The precious treasures came; We took them from his gracious hand, And thanked him for the same. We thought the darlings were our own, And clasped them to our breast; Our Father came and snatched away A loved one to his rest. He knocked again; we knew his voice, And tried to stay his hand; But no! he took another child To yonder happy land. Once more he came, we wept and ...

CLARE PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 September 1870
CLARE PLOUGHING MATCH. I he annual ploughing match in connection with the Glare Agieultural and Horticultural Society took place in M\ Johnston's section, Stanley Flat, on Thursday, September 1. The weather was all that could be desired, aud the ground was in excellent condition. The last few days of genial sunshine^ following the late heavy rains, had imparted to the soil the requi site firmness, and certainly the competitors could scarcely have wished for better ground upon which to work. During the early part of the afternoon the spectators were not very nu merous, but as the hour for the completion of the wok approached the number gradually in creased, and at the clo:e a considerable con course of people was scattered over the field. The competition in general ploughing was pretty brisk; in the other classes, however, there were but few candidates f jr honor. The work on the whole was creditably performed, equal, perhaps, to any former occasion. The show of horse stock was limit...

SINGULAR HISTORY OF A VAGABOND. An individual arrested by the Paris Police a short time ago for vagabondage has turned out to be a convict named Montrousier, aged thirty-five, who escaped from Cayenne a few years ago under rather extraordinary circum stances. He was condemned in 1861 to transportation for setting fire to the farm of a neighbor in Algeria, where he had settled. In the penal colon}" he adopted the calling of a fisherman, and married a woman who was undergoing a sentence of five years. They even tually resol ved to escape, and with, three other convicts got away in their boat, and, after being* ten days at sea, landed on Barbiche Island. Having no money; to purchase provisions, the ystole what they could, and then again put to sea. A terrible tempest then sprang up, in the midst of which the woman gave birth to a female child, and died a few days after; the infant, however, sur vived, being fed with bread steeped in water. After being thirty days in that precarious sta...

AN INHUMAN WRETCH. (To the Editor of THE NOBTHEBN ARGUS.) Sib-I have been with horses all my life, and have seen some cruel treatment to that noble animal; so that I am not moved by seeing trifles in that shape. But of all the sights I ever saw the one I am about to mention was the moet brutal and cowardly. On Monday, 15th, I was employed with several others at a building on the river flat at Bungaree, when we saw a man, or something in that shape, coming over the hills from Clare. He was beating his horse upon the head when we first saw bin), and he continued this stand ing up in tlie stirrups for at least two miles as regular as the beat of a clock. Although we were three quarters of a mile from him we could distinctly hear the blows; and upon inquiry I found he had come almost ail the way from Glare beating his poor brute in this hor rible manner. Sir, is there no law for such fiendlike treat ment ? I forgot to mention that we Baw him three times dismount and kick the poor beast ...

THE GOLDFIELDS. The Q-awler Times' Barrossa correspondent reports:-The rainy weather continues to in terfere with operations here. The "Victoria Crasher has been at work during daytime, but the Barossa Co.'s crusher has done very little during the week, and it is rumored that it iB in contemplation to remove it to the Fara River. Should this he done an impetus will be given to digging it that quarter, and through the Humbug country, the whole presenting highly auriferous features.

The last hole bottomed three days since (Robert's) though promising in the description of the stuffj contained no g...
