The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 September 1870

OJ nt $rps. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1870. THE Intercolonial Conference-wliieti at the time was thought to be so barren of satisfactory results-has not been altogether unproductive of good. The Treasurer's visit to the Conference ap pears to have given a death-blow to his free-trade proclivities. It is not often that a radical revolution is effected in a man's political views after he has passed the prime of life. Such, however, appears to ce the case with the Trea surer- He went to Melbourne with free-trade principles predominant in his political creed, he came back a semi-protectionist. In the sister colony he saw the population fully employed at remunerative wages; numerous native industries had sprung up within the last few years, and the origin of these various industries was palpably traceable to the influence of protective duties. He therefore came to the con clusion that the tariff which had done so much for Victoria could not be poli tically unsound. In the new tariff which he...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 September 1870

MISCELLANEOUS. Berlin is growing more rapidly than ar>y city in Europe, more rapidiy even than Liv< rpool. The population of Berlin in 1832 was 250,COO, placing it eighth in the order of European capitals. At the end of 1869 the number had risen to 800,000, leaving only London and Paris its superiors. THE BITER BIT.-In the earlier days of the colony of New South Wales there lived a gentleman in the suburbs of Sydney, who felt himself elevated by being privileged to attach to his Earne the letters J.P., and in his zeal for justice thought he would step a leetle out of his province by trying a little in the detective line, by laying an information, or threatening to do so, against a hawker for selling without a licence. The hawker on meeting the J. P. not far from his residence, asked him to purchase something, and the J.P. purchased a pair of bracers, and having paid his three and sixpence for them placed them in his pocket. Now, said the J.P., shew me your licence. The...

CANNIBALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 September 1870

CANNIBALISM. A most shocking case of cannibalism has just been brought to light in Algeria. Early in the summer of 1868, two young women and a lad of thirteen left the tents of their tribes on their way to a neighboring village, thay never re turned, and were given up for lost % their relatives, who supposed they must have been devoured by wild beasts. On j the 18th of November last, two men, relatives of the missing persons, were proceeding to the tent to the cadi of their tribe, when they noticed on their way across the encampment a stalwart Arab, Nohammed Ben Ahmed, on whose shoulders they remarked a species of cloak, which had belonged to one of the lost women. Their sus picions being aroused, they informed the chief, who had Ben Ahmed arrested; and in the course of a day or two, after being' plied with incessant questions, he confessed that, with two friends of his-Ben Tahar and Ben Mohamed -he had met the two young- women and the boy, and that j'ielding to a diabolical impulse...

AN AWKWARD DILEMMA. The following* particulars of a man in Nelson (New Zealand) being- left in charge of £10,000 at 11 o'clock at m«ht, and no one to be found willing o y o to take it in, we extract from the Mel son Evening Mail:-"At about 11 o'clock 011 Saturday evening the boom of a gun reverberated through the town, and it at once became known that the long-expected Phoebe had ar rived. A few people collected on the wharf to see her, and among them was a sort of semi-official who transacts some of the shipping- business of the wharf To him there was thrown over the ship's side 32 mail bags, and two boxes containing 10,000 sovereigns for one of the banks in the town, and then away steamed the good ship, leaving our unfortunate gold-keeper in an un happy predicament. After a time a trustworthy friend approaches, to whom was entrusted the charge of the gold, while the custodian went in search of a cab, in which bags, boxes, and keeper were placed, and away they went up to town.

FLOODS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 September 1870

FLOODS IN VICTORIA. We take the following summary of the recent floods in Victoria from the " Mount Oambier; Standard-News reaches us of the Wodonga Flats being covered with water two miles wide, mails stopped, and river rising an inch per hour. The country about Cam per down is flooded. The Darlington Bridge, over the Emu Creek, has been carried away. The Cudgee Creek Bridge, and the bridge over the Hopkins at Allansford, have both gone. Mail communication with Warrnambool is stopped. Fears are entertained for the safety of the bridge: over Black's River, Castle Carey, and for the bridge at MacKinnon's, the approaches having been washed away. On the stations, dams and sheepwaBhes have been destroyed. The plains and flats are all covered with water. Mr. Mcpherson's tannery, at Darlington, has been destroyed by the flood. Sheep, household furniture, and building materials are floating down the Emu Creek. There is no passage over the creek between Skipton and the sea. It is reported t...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 September 1870

©k gj0t|tbLrit FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1870. THE trying ordeal of unpropitious sea sons tlirough which the colony has passed has apparently come to a close. The cycle of comparatively fruitless years, there is every reason to hope, has terminated. The last two or three almost rainless reasons had brought our leading interests-the pastoral and agricultural-to the ruination point, and a repetition of such seasons, it was generally admitted, would render our position desperate in the extreme. Happily, however, we shall be spared such a calamity. The coming- season promises to be one of the most produc tive in the annals of the colony. As far as the squatting interest is concerned, it is absolutely certain that the year will be a prosperous one. In the Far North, and from Port Aug usta to Fowler's Bay, the grass is high enough to be mown, and the oldest residents say that they never remember a season when the feed was more plen tiful or the water more abundant. As far as human foresight g...

WATERVALE. (MOM OUR OWN C01iEESP0SD2NT>) September 22. The roads this year in our part of the district are in a frightful state, owing to the very heavy rains which have fallen, and will cause consi derable outlay on the part of the District Council to make them anything like passable. If was reported here some time ago that the contract for forming and metalling, &e., the Government road through Peak'<3 paddocks was accepted, but as yet I see no signs of a commencement. The Upper Wakefield District Council are having a piece of road made leading from this township to Blyth Plains. The work was greatly needed. 'i he warm weather has made a great improve ment in the appearance of the crops, and everything connected with agriculture is looking prosperous and flourishing, bidding fair for an abundaut harvest.
