FRENCH REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
FRENCH REPLY. Your German Rhine has been ours before! It has served our -wassail bowls to fill. Can singing its praise from door to door ? . ? Efface the hoofprints, legible still, Qf our cavalry charge that bathed its left bank in your gore ? Your German Rhine has been "ours before! ' On its breast the wound yet gapeth wide, Which conquering Conde made when he tore Through its mantle of green to the farther side:. Wliereonce the sire hath ridden, shall the son not ride once more? Your German Rhine has been ours before! Of your German virtue what remains, When across its flood our l^ions pour, And the Empire over-clouds your plains ? When all your men have fallen, have ye other men in store? Your German Rhine has been ours before J - If ye your annals would fain forget, Your daughters remember the days of yore, And wish the Frenchmen among them yet, For whom your vintage white they were always blithe to pour. If your German Rhine be yours once more, Then wash your liveries in its ti...

OLIVIA'S CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
OLlVl&'S CRIME.: Olivia Hamilton was handsome, one of: the handsomest belles for many miles around; so handsome that, like all fair yoling damsel^; of 20 summers, she had numerous admirer^ each of whomwould willingly have braved; all dangers, or performed any penancp if they could by that means have secured a reciprocation .of; that; flame; fwhichi was: destroying them. But Olivia was no flift, not a bit of it. She did' not^like many maidens of similar attractions delight" in doing - run about with all the foolish young men around her, and by that means create the pity of the wise and the ridicule of those whose chief delight consists in exposing the follies and weaknesses of imprudent people: Miss Hamilton liked her own character better than to make herself a public talk, and bring her parents to shame by reason of such misconduct. Let it not be supposed that on this account Olivia's Heart was callous, or that she knew nothing of that mys terious influence which our forefat...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
M S glrps. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14,1870. The Land Bill is at last passing through its final ordeal in the Assem bly. The decisive battle has now com menced, and both sides are doing their utmost to secure the triumph of their views. For the last month the Bill has been lost sight of in the debates of the House,.but, it is evident that the opponents of the measure have not been idle during the interval. They have been quietly strengthening their posi tion, and .preparing for the coming struggle. /." Since the Bill was last discussed in the House numerous meetings have been held in- various parts of the country. . At some the decision was favourable, at others adverse to the Bill. Two meetings have been held in this district-one of them at least was instigated by hostile motives but at botib the action of the Govern ment was approved of by overwhelm ing majorities. Even though it were true that the majority of the meetings hav^ condemned the Bill in part or in its entirety, we would not ac...
RHYNIE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
RHYNIE. (fkom oue own cobbespondent ) October 12. I have nothing of any importance to chronicle this week. The weather has been all that we could desire, and the crops are looking weli. The District Council has given some slight signs of recovery, and actually ordered some work to be done. A memorial has been largely signed praying against the division of the dis trict, as petitioned for by the Alma Plains folk; but I rather think most of the ratepayers are rather in the dark as to the reason for so much petitioning and counter-petitioning. Ferhaps District Council business could not be done without it; or perhaps we are savage about the sew Land Bill, or the proposed Thistle Act, which would be rather an inconvenient measure for some farmers. It would take some of them as long to clear the thistles off as it would the mixture of wild oatf, drake, and weed? which usually go under the name of " the crop." Could nothing be done to utilize the thistle ? Perhaps some member of the Chamb...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
THE WEATHER. Daring the past fortnight we have expe rienced genial spring weather, with occasional showers intervening. The sultriness of one or two days last week culminated on Saturday afternoon in a thunderstorm cf great violence. The lightning was grandly vivid, and the simultaneons roar of the thunder intimated that the elemental war was immediately overhead. For the epace of half an hour the rain de scended in one uubroken sheet. The drains each side of Main-etreet were filled in an in credibly short time. Some of the culverts were not sufficiently large to carry off such a large body of wate*, the consequence being that the footpaths were inundated in various places, to the great annoyance of one or two townspeople. Altogether, the storm was one of the severest felt this winter, and persons accustomed to travelling state that they never remember being out in such a rainfall before. The rain continued with slight intermissions throughout Sunday, the total fall amounting to 1.2...

ANNIVERSARY OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, CLARE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
ANNIVERSARY OF THE PRES j BYTERIAN CHURCH, CLARE. The anniversary services of the Presbyterian Church, Clare, were commenced, on Sunday, October 9, in the Town Hall. Tbe weather proved exceedingly unpropitious, and the con gregations were not so large as they otherwise would hare been. The Rev. James Lyall, from Adelaide, officiated, selecting his text in the morning from Psalm Ixv., 1*3, and in the even ing from John xi., 28. The rev. gentleman delivered two able discourses, which were listened to attentively throughout. On Tuesday, a sale of. articles took place in connection with the services, the goods being chiefly contributed . by Mrs. Young and Mrs. LeFeuvre. The tea meeting afterwards was largely attended, the company being more nu merous than on any previous occasion. After partaking of the excellent provision, the tables were removed, and the public meeting com menced. There; were, .upwards' of 200 people present. The Rev. W.

ARMAGH SCHOOL. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERS ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
ARMAGH SCHOOL. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERS AKGUS ) Sir-The master of the Armagh Grammer School is, I imagine, wanting to get his name up"and fame extended, or his letter whioh I read in your issue "of the 7th inst, would have been penned by a more truthful hand." But' perhaps this is some of the trigonometry taught by him at Sedgly Park, Wol verb am ton, when he says be was master there. A famous judge onee remarked, ** That it was having to hear 1 both sides of the question that gave him all the bother." Had our Sedgley Park friend stuck only to the truth, a very different letter would have appeared. He is no doubt a little bashftil and forgetful, but let me see if I can assist his modesty, fie did not tell the Board of Educa tion, Mr. Editor, tbat the intelligent inhabit ants of Armagh had only found out that the Government had been taken advai t ige of. For some considerable period he has been driving a most profitable trade, with 31 des titute children, who were invented by h...
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 October 1870
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUB OWS cobeespondent.) October 12. Tbe no-confidence motion arising out of the Government refusal to construct the Fort Au gusta railway was negatived after a Jong and animated discussion. Mr. Mann opened with a very excellent speech, in which, with well chosen words, be condemned the action of the Government. The opposition could not bare fixed on a better man to state their cause. There was no frothy declamation which too often characterises no-confidence speeches, but a neat pleasant speech which none could find fault with. Fifteen members spoke on the motion, the result of tbe debate being the triumph of the Government by a majority of one vote. Obviously the whole thing was a great mistake, a majority of the House-a small one, certainly-refusing to affirm that the action of the Government respecting the Fort Augusta Railway was unsatisfactory. The op position seemed to think that if the Ministry were not in a minority the voting would he equal, amounting, in fa...
