DETERMINED MURDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
DETERMINED MURDERERS. A man, who was condemned at Val paraiso about six months ago to three years' imprisonment for wounding- a policeman, contrived to effect his escape from gaol lately. Armed with a large nail, the point of which he had made very sharp, he proceeded to the house of a female acquaintance, whom he mortally stabbed with the nail after ex changing a few words with her. The cries of the woman attracted the attention of a policeman, who, after a sharp chase, came up with the murderer, and called upon him to deliver himself up. Muttering some words of re pentance for the act he had committed, and"feigning- the most complete sub-? mission, the murderer drew close to the policeman, who was completely thrown off his guard by the manner of the assassin, when he again drew forth his terrible weapon and plunged it into the body of the unsuspecting policeman, who fell to the ground weltering in his blood. The murderer again made off at the top of his speed, and he was not recap...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. From Baroesa a correspondent ef the " Ad vertiser" . reports:-The deep lead, and par ticularly the part of it known af Hatched, yields fairly ; in several instances good results are obtained, and the depth being shallow and the driving exceptionally favorable, contribute materially to this, as even half an ounce to the ton here is found to be more remunerative than an ounce per ton in most of the other hills. The Green Hill progresses well, many of the claims yielding vtry superior washdirt in ad dition to the cement. The prospectors are working vigorously, and, as an evidence of their faith, are preparing for a monster crushing towards the end of theyear. The rush to the lower part of Spike .Gully, occasioned by the grant of a prospecting claim to Liebekneccht and party, has materially subsided, and resulted in but a few claims proving even remunerative. At Melville's Hill , a prospecting claim of 50 yards square has been granted to Mr. Melville. The spot selected w...
HOW TO CURE BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
HOW TO CURE BACON. The reputation of the Hampshire bacon is owing entirely to the care with which it is cured. The hogs, which are fattened on peas and barley meal are kept fasting for 24 hours at least before they are killed; they are used as gently as possible in the act of killing, which is done by inserting a long pointed knife into the main artery which comes from the heart. The hair is burnt off with lighted straw, and the dirty surface of the skin scraped off. The carcase is hung up after the en trails have been removed, and the next day, when the meat has become quite cold, it is cut up into flitches. The spare ribs are taken out, and the bloody veins carefully removed; the whole is then covered with salt, with a small quantity of saltpetre mixed with it. Sometimes a little brown sugar is added, which gives a pleasant sweet ness to the bacon. The flitches are laid on a low wooden table, which has a small raised border all round it. The table slants a little, so as to let the...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11,1S70. THE subject of cemeteries is one which > demands the immediate attention of the Clare Corpora J ion. We believe there is . not a town in the colony where a worse system of interment prevails than in Clare, and special; reasons might be urged why the ob noxious system should be speedily abolished here. At present all the grounds enclosed in connection with the various churches are converted into graveyards, with the exception of one-theWesley an. We have the Roman Catholic burying'-ground on the one side, and the Church of Eng land , and Presbyterian on the other. The former is already becoming thickly peopled, and is also situated in the centre of what must eventually become a populous neighbourhood. We have,, heard numerous complaints on the subject, and we now draw publie at tention to the existence of what may become a source of pestilence and death. Jf the town were built on level ground there would" not perhaps be so much reason ior complaint; but a...

ARMAGH SCHOOL. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
ARMAGH SCHOOL. the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) eiR-it speaKit'g tiie truth is Jnsuitlug, i certainly plead guilty to the charge mentioned in Mr. Crosby's letter of tha 28 h ins*., but not otherwise, as I again assert my former state* ments are correct, and had Mr. C>osby not have written to the Board of Education a most libellous letter respecting myself. I should have pursued my duties without troubling any one with the statement?. As rrgards his destitute children, he says they are made free by tbe proper authorities. This is something new, and myself and others would gladly learn this novel system of creating destitutes, as no doubt many will avail them selves of this new order of knighth. od. I have written this in answer to Mr. Crosby's note merely to let my friends know that Mr. C. first most unfairly attacked me by writing to the Board a mo-t untruthful letter, and I feel in duty bound to let the truth be known.

FLOODS AT COLERAINE, VICTORIA. (From the "C[?]leraine A bion.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 November 1870
FLOODS AT COLERAINE, VIC TORIA. (From the "Coleraine Albion.") &nbsp; In two small cottages at the rear of our office there were two families, named Drummond and Laird, and being the lowest houses in the town, a few very thoughtful people ran thither to help. A current was rushing down, jut the depth of water could not be imagined, as in the dark there was no- thing to guide one's imagination. About 40 yards from these cottages a crowd began to assemble. Constable Mahon made a dash to get through, and was in up to his middle, when he was dashed away by a panel of fence, and carried a hundred yards in an instant. Being an excellent swimmer, Mahon managed to land himself on the top of a pigsty, and soon found means to get ashore, and he took his place again amongst the venturers. Louis Lesser managed to get across, and a child was safely landed. A rope was then tied on either side, and Mahon again dashed into the water, and saved another child. Mr. Lesser managed, with great d...
