THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. Our ("Gawler Times") Barossa digging's correspondent stateB that Groddard's prospect ing party, and also a party employed by Mr. Melville have struck payable gold in two places near Williametown, and about three-quarters of a mile apart. A rush is expected to the locality, and several parties have already com menced sinking. A beautiful nugget weighing nearly two and a half ounces was found this week in the Deep Lead. A narrow run of gold has been struck on the Green Gully Hill below the prospector's claim, and apparently connecting in with the old workings it the creek. . The local " Guardian" reports favorably of the numerous auriferous reefs in the Gumeracha District. We (" Advertiser") understand that a disco very of a very important character has been made in the Criterion claim, and that the new find of gold is richer than anything that has i preceded it in that property.

Seldom has a better or more enthusiastic assembly met in the neigh borhood, which we take as. an indication that the public appreciate the eff rt-s of the Christies to relieve the dull monotony of country life. The audience was of itself suffi. -ieiit to infuse inspiration into the souls of the performers, and to callforth whatever musical or histrionic talent they- possessed.

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

ifte m*Itf tt gjrps. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21,1870. ON Tuesday last the Commissioner of Public Works, in answer to a question put by Mr. Mildred, stated that an average weekly sum of £182 4s. 7d. had been expended on the labor test during the present year. It will be remembered that at the time of the riots in Adelaide in March last the unemployed-who were then exceed ingly numerous-were offered work by the Government by which they were able to earn from Is. 6d. to 2s. per day. The then Commissioner of Public Works got into disgrace in the esti mation of many on account, of the star vation rate offered, but notwithstanding numbers availed themselves of the offer, and went to work. In this manner originated the present labor test, which seems now to be regarded as one of the permanent institutions of South Australia-an institution, too, which, we believe, is peculiar to the colony, and of which the colony lias little reason to be proud. It was quite foreign to the intentions of the Governm...

ENTERTAINMENT AT WATERVALE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

ENTERTAINMENT AT WATER VALE. On Tuesday evening, October 18, the last of the series of entertainments in connection with the Foresters' Hall took place, and was a decided suc&ss. The evening was fine and the attendance good, visitors from a distance being present in goodly numbers. The programme, which was a very attractive one, was gone ! through in a most satisfactory manner. The sinking of Mr Oeimann, was much appreciated, and is worthy of special mention' He has a clear tellieg voice, and judging from the hearty encores the audience would never hare grown weary of listening to him. The singing of Mr. Beckmann was also much admired, both his songs being encored. As he is so well known in the district, it would be superfluous to men tion any of the good qualities in his vocaliza-j tion. Mr. Williamson was encored, and the programme being so lengthy he substituted the last song on the list. The Mintaro Glee Club sang some very good pieces, and other amateurs of the township...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 19. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

ADELAIDE. (j?AOWL OTTB OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 19. The annual meeting of the Congregational Union was held in Adelaide on Thursday, Oc tober 13. The Rev. James Jefftris, of the North Adelaide Church, presided, and read a lengthy paper on the education question, in which he examined the matter - in its various phases, and offering such suggestions as he I deemed advisable. At its close a discussion I ensued. The Rev M. Williams, of Kapunda, afterwards read a paper on " The Revision of the Scriptures," on which a discussion also ensued, most speakers agreeing that a new and thoroughly revised edition of the Scriptures would be a benefit in which all the religious communities in the world would participate. A rich find of gold has been made at the Criterion Reef, surpassing all former dis coveries. This news is cheering when every thing is so dull. On Wednesday last His Excellency attended at Parliament House, and gave his assent to a number of bills. On Saturday last the second an...

A NEW STIMULANT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

A NEW STIMULANT. It cannot be too widely known, writes Dr. M'Donnell, in the Gardener's 3£agazine, that persons who object (whether for good or bad reasons) to take or administer alcohol in cases of prostration or in those numerous morbid conditions of the nervous system which are akin to the exhaustion of fatigue or innutrition, may avail themselves of an admirable substitute of a perfectly safe character, against which neither the conscience nor the palate will rebel. The substitute is nothing less than Liebig's extract of meat, an article well known and in general use in respectable households, and frequently used in the preparation of beef-tea, and for gravies, &c. As ordinarily used, the extract is certainly not to be regarded as a stimu lant, except in so far as all nourishments are stimulating: but when made into tea of very great strengih it is another matter. A teaspoonful mixed in a teacupful of hot water (the water need not be boiling hot), with a sufficiency of s...

FAR NORTH. (fhom oub owk coebespondent.) HOOKINA, October 17. Nothing worthy of note has occurred here since my last, excepting the passing of the Poet master-General on his way to Mount Margaret. He took very little notice of the place, not even paying the post-office a visit. Perchance he did not know there was one here. We had a very severe thunderstorm with heavy rain on the 8th inst., which carried away a great part of the store roof to a considerable distance, besides damaging other buildings. It lasted nearly an hour.

THE TWO MOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 October 1870

THE TWO MOONS. The Telegraph publishes another aboriginal legend :-Those who believe that the aborigines of Australia have had no oral traditions handed down to them are greatly mistaken, for they seem to have had a great many, and at   their corrobborees or festivals they retail little else than legendary lore. From some of the more intelligent of the Hotspur or Crawfoad River blacks I have eliminated the meaning of several of their historical fragments, the most interesting of which appears to be "The   Two Moons." They say that long ago, in the days of their first fathers, before the tarpaulins of the white fellows' ships were seen on the waters, Hotspur was a great country, and very warm. In its forests roamed kangaroos bigger than bullocks, wombats fatter than the white fellows' pigs, and birds whose eggs were larger than the melons of Leywhollot. On its plains were abun-   dance of sweet yams, and at all times water to boil them. There we...
