THE LAND BILL. MEETING AT AUBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 September 1870
THE LAND BILL. ME ETilvG- . AT AUBUEN. A public meeting was held at the Town Hall, Auburn, on Saturday, August 24, to take info consideration the Land Bill now before Parliament. After waiting about three-quarters of an hour beyond the time appointed, about 70 persons congregated in the Hall. Mr. J. Thomas (Chairman ot the District) was appointed Chairinau, and commenced the proceedings by reading the. placard calling the meeting* After a considerable interval of silence, Mr. J. Bowden mounted the platform. He had something to do with calling the meeting, al though his name was not on the placard. He thought the Land Bill was of such importance that the people ought to have something to eay on.the subject. Tfce Land Bill now before Parliament was a great swindle. It was pro posed to. take the laud, which belonged to ail, and give it to a certain class, and to tax the country for the beneflt of that class; and he thought that was unfair. He moved-"That it is the duty of the Governmen...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 September 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. We were shown a few days ago some small specimens of quartz containing mundic, from a reef recently opened at Blumberg by Mr. W. Good, from Barossa. The presence of gold being suspected, an assay was made by Mr. Thorup of this town, and he found the mundic to LE highly auriferous-yielding gold at the rate of about 20 ozs to the ton. This may turn out to be an important discovery. We have before drawn attention to the existence of gold in mundic, and should recommend trials to be made where mundic is plentiful. " Gawler Times." There is nothing very startling in the way of digging among us, unless it is the scarcity of gold. The wetness of the gronnd here, and the flood water in the river, are the general com plaintB just now. Still, all are getting gold, more or less, although the less may predomi nate. A Government prospecting party of four have bottomed two holes on what is supposed to be the line of the lost lead at the " New Rush" of the old diggings, but I do no...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 September 1870
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30/1870. FEW subjects have occupied so much of the time of the South Australian Parliament as the long-talked-of rail way north of Port Augusta. It has been agitated for the last ten years, and there seems as g*r-eat a diversity of opinion respecting it now as there was when,it was first mooted. No doubt an undertaking- of such magnitude re quires careful and cautious considera tion. Involving as it does an expendi ture of something' like three-quarters of a million, it would be criminal to the public interests to sanction the work without duly considering the arguments for arid against. A Select Committee has investigated the matter, 'engineers have inspected the country and given estimates of the cost, a mass of information has been elicited as to the mineral and pastoral wealth of the Far North; but notwithstanding all, the members of Parliament are far from unanimous as to the desirability of constructing the line. About three years; ago legislative action adva...

RHYNIE. (FROM: OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) September 26. ' I don't know whether the war or the District Council occupies the most of our attention here, but certain it is that Ithynie is in a state of unusual excitement. The pound a tbn duty on potatoes also causes some slight ferment in domestic circles; indeed, raw potatoes ought to be classed with any other raw materiaL For my own part I would not nrind a pound a ton duty on boiled po tatoes, and let the raw go free. The crops' are looking very well indeed. Some folks fear a return of red rust, but I have seen none of any consequence yet.. . V . - - There is an attempt being made to form a Young lien's Society here, but I do notinow how* it is getting on. By a remarkable coincidence our Wesleyan friends always hold a meeting on the same night as. the young men. E»o^btless it is to prav for the young men's wel fare; but it seems curious, to say the. least of it. Indeed, some people are so ill-natured as to hint that the Wes- I leyans ...
