RECIPE FOR AMERICAN BLIGHT AND CABBAGE BLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

RECIPE FOB AMERICAN BLIGHT AND CABBAGE BLIGHT. About three ago, an intelligent' agriculturist, (Mr. Martin Batey, of Deep Creek) communicated to the Leader newspaper, a successful method of treating the American -Blight, which in some years is so very annoying to Victorian orchardists. The remedy is simple and inexpensive. It is a solution of blue vitriol (sulphate of copper), the same as commonly used for dressing seed wheat, but weaker, the proportion being one pound of the vitriol to a hogshead (60 gallons) of water. The mode of application is as follows :-Lay bare the roots of the tree, by opening around the stem a hole' of Irom three to six feet in diameter, according to the size of the subject. In doing this, carefully avoid brusing or injuring the roots. Then pour into the hole from two to six bucketsful of the solution, and the chances are that the tree will become clean. Should, however, this dressing prove insufficient the affected parts on the branches may receive a dress...

SHOCKING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

SHOCKING CASE. An extraordinary case of atrocity has just been disclosed before the Court of Assizes of the Manclie, a man having been kept concealed, chained to a bed for a period of forty years, by his own father first, and by a brother afterwards. In the year 1830 a farmer named Bouillaud lived with his wife and four sons-Charles, Jacques, Francois, and Julien-in the commune of Romagny. Jnlien who was then 22 years of age, had shown some signs of a de rang-ed mind, the result of a fright while walking* out at night, and the father, to escape the trouble of guarding the young man, had him chained by the two wrists on a bed from which the son was never moved. The result of the captivity was, that Julien's limbs became at length completely paralysed from inaction, and he became a perfect idiot. The father died in 1852, having previously shared his fortune between the three other sons, on condition that Charles and Francois should each pay a sum of 200f. annualy for the wants of thei...

THE GOLDFIELDS. The Crawler Times, Barossa corresponded reports:-u The Deep Lead maintains its way on all the lineof holes yet sank; Roberts and party have found gold, and cruehings are being expeditiously got out by several parties. Nol tenius's also holds its own, but now rather more on the western than on the eastern side of the hill, where several holes have given good prospects recently,1 although a good many holes, bottomed off the presumed lead, are abandoned.1 SCOWK'b prospecting claim is worked out, and Simons's nearly so, there baring been minor discoveries, very narrow, and almost of surface.5 Sinking and working at the Yatta still pro ceeds, and the other parts of the old diggings! much as usual, the gully portions being almost deluged with water. At Hiesey5?, owing to the' latter cause, everything is still, reminding one of an old abandoned mining district in Corn-; wall-temporarily quiescent, as it were, only to' gather fresh strength to burst from its gloom: .into unw...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

Urn^m J|rp8. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1870. The tocsin of war has again sounded on the continent of Europe, and two of the most powerful nations in the world are at the present moment engaged in deadly conflict. The responsibility of having commenced this great struggle undoubtedly rests upon the shoulders of France. It is thought by some that the French army had become impatient of idleness, and panted for the bivouac and the battlefield, and that to prevent the smouldering fires of discontent bursting forth into civil war, the Emperor Napoleon has led forth his legions to subdue the rising power of Prussia. We cannot, however, fall in with this view. We do not think that the disaffection amongst the military was such as to render needful such a step; neither do we think that the crafty and far-seeing Napoleon would so far commit himself as to try conclu sions with the might of Prussia merely for the purpose of finding employment for his soldiers. Neither can we recon cile our minds to...

THE CLARE AKD WALLAROO RAIL WAY. Respecting the relative merits of the Clare and Wallaroo railway and tbe NarracooHe aud Lacepede Bay line the "Wallaroo Tim s" writes:-<4It is to be hoped the electors of the district of S'anley, and the farmers in ihe neighbourhood of Clare particularly, will ob serve that whilst there is an agha*i m afoot for the construction of a railway that would tend to make the district of Clare a most flourishing and extensive agricultural district, Mr, Bright, their representative, proposes this day in the House to take steps for the construction of a line over a miserably sterile and almost unin habited country in the Soutli-East." Sow, whilst commending our contemporary for the zeal with which it has advocated its pet railway scheme, we do not think that any real advan tage is to be gained by ignoring the claims of other parts of the colony. Speaking personally, we should be glad to see Wallaroo and Clare connected by a light line of railway. We...

AUBURN. (FBOM OFB OWJff COBBESPOKDENT.) September 8. We have had an unusual heavy fall of rain this week, accompanied with thunder and lightning. The Wakefield has been overflowing its banks twice this week-on Thursday evening and again to-day-which tends to make trade more dull than it otherwise would be. A little stir was created this morning at the arrival of the Northern Telegraph detachment of men, about 70 in number, with their waggons and luggage. The farmers in tins neighborhood are much encouraged by the appearance of their growing crops, as they are looking very healthy and strong, and unless some unforeseen drawback occurs, there is a prospect of an abundant harvest.

PORT AUGUSTA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) September 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

PORT AUGUSTA. (fbom ottb own coeeespomdent.) September 5. ! The Road Board has been short of a Com missioner for months past, so that their delibera tions have been deficient (in numbers at least) of the collective wi&dooi designed by the I framers of the Local Board of Main Roads Act. I It is thought, in place of vacancies being filled by those nominated by the Board, that such appointments should be open t to competition, and that the candidates should | be elected by the votes of the inhabitants of the district. As a sign of the change of the times here, second hand bullock drays are not to be bought, although not long s'nse tbey used to be knocked down in quarter-dozens-three for two guineas. It, has been suggested by a member of the Port Augusta Jockey Club that a portion of the £100 obtained through Mr. Coglin for Queen's Plates should be ran for here, as this was the only jockey club in existence in the colony at the time of the vote being carried.

UNDALYA PLOUGHING MATCH (From the Advertiser.) The first ploughing match which has taken place for fire years in this quarter came off on Thursday, September 1. The site chosen was a paddock, the property of Mr. W. Baker, sen., and a more suitable or prettier spot could not be found in the district. The soil could not be surpassed. There were not so many ploughs as were expected, partly owing to the Clare Ploughing Match taking place on the same day. There were four entries in the Men's Class and one in the Boys'. The ploughing throughout was good. During the day there were athletic sports, which were well contested. There were three entries foe draught entires, and two for roadsters.

FRIGHTFUL SLAUGHTER IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

FRIGHTFUL SLAUGHTER FIJI. Terrible news comes from Levuka. Mr. Norman, well known in Sandhurst, Victoria, was murdered, and his body cooked; while war has broken out on the North-west Odssi^ where a perfect massacre took glace. The particulars are extracted from the Fiji Times of July 23: We have just heard frightful news from Ba, on the North-west Coast of Viti Levu. For some time past the Ba people have been at war with the mountaineers, and a few have been killed on both sides, but a letter just in from the native minister informs us of a fearful massacre. The mountaineers from Navosa came down to Nalotu, an inland district, hitherto subject to Ba, and the advanced fortress, or Bri-ni mur of the Ba people. They put up a war fence, and then Wawabalavu, the Navosa chief, called out and said, Ci You Nalotu people, I am Wawa balavu. It was I who ate Mr. Baker, and the Bau men.

ENTERTAINMENT AT BUNGAREE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 September 1870

ENTERTAINMENT AT BUN GAREE. Our experiences of bush life and sheep sta tions do not usually embrace the the more refining and civilizing influences of social gatherings in the shape of literary and musical recreations, damper and mutton not being generally considered provocative of intellectual efforts. To this state of things, however, Bun gares must be taken as an exception, for, not content with being the model Bheep station of rhe North, she is making vigorous exertions to place her young men employees on a par with those who are more fortunately situated in the metropolitan and principal towns. If the maiden efforts of the Bungaree Mutual Im provement Society on Monday evening are to be taken as a sample of what we are to expect from them on future occasions, we shall have do cauBe to complain. We may at once say that their efforts not only exceeded our expecta tions, but were above the average of what we usually look for on these occasions, and the neighboring townships must l...
