THE MITRAILLEUR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
THE MITRAILLEUR. Franee introduced rifled field gun into the campaign of 1859 against Austria, the Austrians having no weapon ofthat nature in the field. The Prussians were all armed with breech-loaders in the war of 1866, the Austrians. being entirely armed with muzzle-loaders. The French are about to introduce the mitrailleur into the war of 1870. As far as is at present known the Prussians have not yet adopted an arm of the kind, though it has been no secret for a long time that in various countries, the arm has been constructed in various patterns. The Monti gny weapon is an assemblage of barrels contained in awrought-irontube mounted much on the same principle as an ordinary field gun, which it resembles somewhat in form. To this a massive breech-action is attached, sliding be tween heavy iron plates. This is con trolled by a jointed lever, and contains a simple contrivance tor the separate and successive ignition of the cartridges. The cartridges are carried in steel plates, p...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The G-awler Times' Barossa correspondent reports:-A company is in course of formation to work the reef claim at Hissey's taken out by Carman and party, who have broken stone showing gold disseminated through it The discovery augurs favorably for the development of out reefs. At Noltenius" the tortuous windings of the lead is baffling a great many diggers. North and south the reefs here seem to act the part of cross-courses in mining for the baser metals, and to set men upon a com plete wild-goose chase of sinking. Half-way down the western side of the hill this is par ticularly the case here, and no party has yet succeeded in recovering the lost lead. A good few are again at work on Goddard's Hill, and about half-a-dozen parties at the Yatta. The Deep Lead, Victoria Hill, and the other parts, are much the same as usual. The Barossa Crushing Company have unfortunately had an accident by the breaking of the fly-wheel, which has led to a cessation of operations for four...
THE ENTERTAINMENT AT WATERVALE. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
THE ENTERTAINMENT AT WATERVALE. (To the IDditor of THE ^NORTHERN ARGUS.) Sir--I wish to correct the errors you have made in your paper of this date, in which you etate that the entertainment at Water vale on September 7 wae a wretched failure, &e. The entertainment did not take place. Owing to the wet e'vemrg the Committee postponed it until next month. ~1 aleo wish to put you right on another matter. You say, " Perhaps dissensions amongst the performers had still more to do 'with it." I am glad to state that 1$e hav&not - had any dissensions amongst the performers. And again, you state that the programme was gone through." In that you are decidedly wrong-the programme was not gone through. The Watervale performers took advantage of Dr. Bain's presence to practice their part music, and other gentlemen gave a few eongs to please themselves. I shall feel obliged if you will insert this in you next, as I do not wish the public to be misled: remain, Sir, &c., J. ...
RHYNIE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT) September 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
RHYNIE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT ) September 12. We were rather amused on Saturday by the vagaries of our District Council. About 3 o'clock the people of the township were alarmed by a sound of thumping and heavy blows, and there was an immediate rush made to the Council meeting-room. . I was fortunate > enough to be present, and the first thing that, met my gaze was Mr. Councillor Smyth vigorously thumping the table, varying this feat by .shaking his fist in the face of one of his brother Councillors and calling him a liar, and also talking of getting that gentleman outside for some dire purpose, no doubt. Mr. Smyth, after this flourish, calmed down slightly, and made an attempt to talk about all the business of the Coiizicil. Councillor Byan suggested that Mr. Smyth should confine himself to one thing at a time. Mr. S., however, continued to talk for some time about nothing particular, and made some hazy remarks about greasy forms, slippery ways, &c, &c. An account...

HOYLETON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) September 14. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
HOYLETON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) September 14. The crops around here are looking most pro mising, and if the season only continues as favorable, we may expect to reap a most abun dant harvert. Shearing has been delayed on account of the weather, but I believe this week will show some progress in that direction. The driver of the conveyance between here and Port Wakf field has a habit of looking before him, or it is very probable I might have had to relate a serious accident. He reports having frequently had to dismount and remove from the rails stones and other obstsuctions. Last Monday, about three miles from this township, /stones were on the rails for some little distance ' the size of the same, and the systematic way in which they were placed would lead no very suspicious person to conclude it is the intention of some person or persons to effect some serious mischief. On this occasion I noticed some ladies were passengers by the carriage. I must remark that the driver is ...

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW, AUBURN. The fourteenth annual sbow of the Northern Agricultural Society took place at Auburn on Wednesday, September 14.

CONCERT AT THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870
CONCERT AT THE TOWN HALL. The Mintaro Choir gave their promised con cert in the Town Hall, Clare, on Monday even ing, September 12, The weather was propitious, and the performers had no reason to complain on the score of a thin house. The large hall was filled to crowding, and there could not have been less than 150 persons present. The proceeds were for the purpose of assisting to clear off the debt on the schoolroom at Mintaro. And the amount realised must have been ex ceedingly gratifying to the promoters. The entertainment as a whole was of an unexcep tionable character, and of a higher order than is usually the case with amateur concerts. The pieces in every case were correctly rendered, and most of them were very creditably given. Not a single bitch occurred throughout the evening. It is not often that the Clare public are favored with such a musical treat as was placed before them on Monday night, and we were happy to find that the praiseworthy efforts of the Mintaro Choir we...
