The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 October 1870

fa mtltfit grps. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28,1870. We understand that the Marriage with a Deceased Wife's Sister Bill, which was paesed last session, and sent home for the Queen's assent, has been disallowed by the Imperial authorities. The quantify of rain registered by tbe Rev. W. Davidson from Wednesday morning till 9 a.m. on Thursday was 2 260-over two and a quarter inches. Such an extraordinary down fall has left its mark behind. In several peaces holes have literally been scooped outinthero&ds, and the cellar of Mr. Smith's new house was filled with water, and took tbe whole of Thurs day to pump dry. The culvert opposite Mr. Smith's hotel was altogether inadequate to carry off the water, which consequently over flowed the footpath, made its way across the vacant ground at the back of Mr. Bryant's, and at last found" a convenient receptacle in the cellar above-mentioned. The damage to tbe foundations is "but slight-merely the washing away of a little outside mortar, which can ea...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 November 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. We are unfortunately without an y letter this week from our correspondent at BaroBsa. We, however, gleaned a few items of information from other sources. The crushers hare had rather more work to do latelj, and we believe the results have been more satisfactory than they were some time ago. More gold has been offered for sale, and independently of what is purchased on the diggings, Messrs. J. & G. Wilcox have bought between 4$ and 50 ounces since our last report. The parcel includes some good nuggetty gold, many pieces weighing from four to seven penny weights each. We saw the other day a nice little lot of nuggets from Walberville Gully, the heaviest weighing about 8 dwts. Several of the diggers, have left for hay harvest, and some for the neighborhood of Blumberg or Mount Pleasant. Water is plen tiful, and we hope before it is too late some effort will be made to store -it for summer's use. The Victoria Company's dan} has been pajctly repaired, and contains...

DRAMATIC CRITICISM. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) Sir-With reference to the late Christies' entertainment at Ciare, and the discussion in yesterday's " Korihern Argus" arising from your criticism thereof, I wish to offer a few remarks. For the last 15 years and more I have been j in the constant; habit ef attending all sorts of mueical and dramatic entertainment?, fron I'alian opera in the Havmarket to Dr. Carr's farcical searces in South Australia, and as, with your worthy D *. Bain, I look " upon the stage and the drama as a great educational power," I am vain enough to think I have learned some thing by the practice, and the conclusions I have arrived st are- I First-That only those who have witnessed snch performances in some of the large cities of the old world, where competition is immense, j and where every player at many of the best | houses is a " star," are -capable of criticising ; public entertainments in the Press, as otherwise they have no standard of excellenc...

THE MYSTERIOUS MURDER. "Murder most foul, strange, and unnatural" —Shakespeare. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 November 1870

THE MYSTERIOUS M ORDER. " Murder most foul, strange, and umiaturaL" -Shakespeare. Thei quiet romantic hamlet of Aver leigtrwas once the scene of a sad oc currence ; so sad that its effects were felt for many years after, and even now the older inhabitants of the place occasionally speak of " the mysterious murder," by which they were deprived of one of their most respected inhabi tants, and under such extraordinary circumstances, too, that perhaps no thing1 similar to it ever occurred before or since. Have patience with me, gentle reader, while I relate all about it. One fine summer's morn all Aver leigh were astounded on being in formed that Mr. Walderon-the de servedly esteemed proprietor of Aver leigh Park-was found in his private room dead-murdered by some person or persons unknown. Nothing' was missed from the room, everything being in its usual order; and thus it was conjectured that he had committed suicide. But this idea was speedily dispelled by those who were best ac quain...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 November 1870

.> FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4,1870. HISTORY, it is said, repeats itself, but the events which have recently trans pired in Europe find no parallel in the annals of the world. They stand out in loneliness on the platform of human history, and will form the materials for the bloodiest and most appalling page of some historian of* the future. Never were the lines of the poet more applicable than now -We are living ; In a grand eventful time. Never were so many immensely signi ficant events crowded into so short a space of time. It seems as if the world is hastening at double-quick pace to some grand climax. The disasters which have befallen the arms of France we regard as utterly irretrievable. Her career of adversity has being unbroken by one solitary gleam of success of any im-* portance. The battles of Wessenbourg, Woerth, Vionville, Gravelotte, have followed each other with startling* rapidity. Then came the. crushing defeat of Sedan, which toppled over ^he throne of the "destined monar...

THE LATE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 November 1870

THE LATE FLOODS. On Friday afternoon, October 28, this dis trict was visited by the heaviest and most disastrous flood experienced for many yeara. The morning was extremely sultry and oppree aive. Towards noon heavy clouds began to gather in the west, betokening an approaching thunderstorm. About 2 o'clock the rain com menced to descend, not in driblets, but as it were in ten thousand continuous jets, and the occasional deafening crashed of thunder, and incessant roar of the wind, imparted a peculiar irnpressiveness to the sciene. As fast as the clouds became exhausted, others would aippeaf to pour their contents upon the earth. Ttijs was repeated time after time, and the magazii of waters above seemed absolutely inex haustible. . ' In the township itself the fall of rain was not so heavy as was experienced a few days previous, yet in the neighbouring hills it miisi have been unprecededtedly heavy.
