The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869

kt Jqtltf tt gtrps. FRIDAY, APRIL 9,1869. WHAT has become of our Farmers' Clubs, is a question that might well be asked at the present time for anything we hear about them; what good is the agricultural community deriving j from their sage deliberations and in vestigations into matters affecting the ' growth of our staple article of produce . -the golden grain, which has given South Australia a high name among the nations for its excellence and un rivalled superiority ? Have they ceased to exist because they have failed to answer the end which their promo ters professed to have in view in establishing them; lias the red rust of | last year proved such a source of dis couragement that they have henceforth abandoned enquiries into that and kindred matters, to Dr. Schomburgk and Wheat Commissions; or has the new Land Bill, which our benevolent legislators pushed off the notice-paper last session, as if it was too hot to hold any longer, and they were afraid all its goodness would evapo...

THE TUNNEL THROUGH MONT CENIS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869

THE TUNNEL THROUGH MONT CENIS. Men flash their messages across mighty continents arid beneath the bosom of the wide Atlantic; they weigh the distant planets, and analyze the sun and stars; they span Niagara with a railway bridge, and pierce the Alps with a railway tunnel; yet the poet of the age in which all these things are done or doing sings, " We men are a puny race." And, certainly, the great works which belong to man as a race can no more be held to evi dence the importance of the individual man than the vast coral reefs and atolls of the Pacific can be held to evidence the working power of the individual coral polype. But if man, standing alone, is weak, man working accord ing to the law assigned to his race from the beginning-that is, in fellow ship with his kind-is indeed a being of power. Perhaps no work ever undertaken by men strikes one as more daring than the attempt to pierce the Alps with a tunnel. Nature seems to have up reared these mighty barriers as if with the de...

ALLEGED PREVENTATIVE OF RUST IN WHEAT. (From the "Cape Argus.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869

ALLEGED PREVENTATIVE" RUST IN WHEAT. (From the " Cape Argue.") A disease that attacks grain sown in poor and rich ground alike, and from which no kind of seed yet tried is really free, although hopes to the contrary have been entertained of one or two importations, is not likely to be traced to its cause. But he has some thing to say on the cure of the disease. He tells a curious tale of a farmer on the Frontier whose crops have long enjoyed immunity from rust. While his neighbors have suffered severely his fields have always been smiling with a rich and fruitful harvest. He has, so we are told, ploughed furrows of his seed in neighbors' fields with a similar result, and his wheat flourished within a foot of rows of grain attacked with the disease. But, strange to say, this fortunate agriculturist will not tell his secret. It was apparently not to be got either for love or money. His public spirit and private feeling were appealed to in vain. At last it oozed out that he had read of...

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869

NIAGARA. From the "Broadway." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 April 1869

NIAGARA. From the " Broadway. Let us now rest awhile on one of the seats overlooking' the Horse shoe Fall. What a grand curve it has! The bright-green tint of the water just in the centre of the Fall, as it curls smoothly over, and where it is twenty feet thick, is never to be for gotten. Everywhere else the decend ing sheet is now white with foam; but sometimes it is resplendent with all the colours of the rainbow. From this spot I one day watched the sun rise. All had been one uniform grey tint, when, suddenly, a gleam of light fell across the edge of the Fall, irradiating it with glory. A well-defined dark shadow was now cast aslant the de cending torrent, serving to display the marvellous beauty of that portion on which the sun was shining, and paint ing it with amber, violet, and crimson. The column of foam presented a most imposing spectacle; the lower part of it was comparative darkness-it was a cloud. The upper portion, a thousand feet high, caught the first rays of the sun,...
