ANCIENT ANGLO-SAXON MARRIAGE CEREMONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 November 1870

ANCIENT ANGLO-SAXON MAR KIAGE CEREMONIES. By the Anglo-Saxons the bond of matrimony was held to be most sacred. No man could lawfully marry without first obtaining- the consent of the woman's Mundbora, or guardian, who was her father if living, and if not some other near relation. If such a consent was not obtained, the husband was liable to penalties, and he acquired no legal rights over either the wife or her goods. For this consent the lovers always paid a mede or price, in the nature of a present, according to the rank of the lady. It was therefore ad vantageous to a father that the " spindle side/' or female part of his family, to use Alfred's term, should outnumber the "spearside," or male members thereof. The parties were solemnly contracted, and a friend of the bridegroom became surety for the woman's good treatment and maintenance. Her dowry was fixed; and all the relations of both parties within the third degree were invited to the marriage feast. Each one made some presen...

FRANCO-GERMAN WAR RELIEF FUND. CONCERT AT TOWN HALL The concert in behalf of the Franco-Pruwan war cameoff in thp Town Hall, Clare, on Frl day,liov.Xl,- The room was tastefully' decor ated with flowers and tvergteens, and the 31*g8 of both nations were suspended, ou either side of the Hall, whilst between them wa^hung the flag ofBritain.

The Norhtern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 November 1870

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18,1870. THE Land Bill is undergoing its im palement in the Legislative Council, | and judging from tlie remarks of hon. 1 members on the introduction of its 1 second reading the mangling process j is likely to be a severe one. Daring I the four months of its passage through ! the Lower House it has been torn and i mended and patched to such an extent 1 ! as to lose its very identity. A certain parson once said ot his coat that it had I received so many different patches that 1 he was not able to detect tbe original I material. And it has been somewhat the same with the celebrated Land! Bill. It has emerged from the As sembly shorn of all its primitive] clothing, retaining little but its name, j Notwithstanding the numerous al terations which it has undergone in the Assembly, there is yet a little vir tue contained in the measure, and we! believe it would to some extent accom plish the ends for which it is intended namely to secure tlia land passing direct from the ...

HOYLETON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 November 1870

HOYLETON. (saqgc chxb ows corbespondknt.) November 10. The placards announcing Miss Thorne to preach in the railway station brought a large number of persons to the spot, some few of this number from feelings of curiosity, baring never heard s female preacher before, except in their own private circle of acquaintances. Miss Thorne rivets the -attention of her audience by her reverential bearing and kind persuasive manner, and leaves them imbued with more solemn and thoughtful feelings. It is a great relief from the prevailing fashion cf some of our own sex, who, knowing they are no better than ourselves, yet would compel us to acknowledge them as our judges, and by no force of argu ment other than strength of lunes and their authoritative manner altogether, from which the more enlightened, especially the gentler sex, must recoil. A tea meeting followed the ser mon, and a goodly number sat down at the table. A public meeting followed the tea j Mr. Thomas Thomas was elected Chairman. ...
