DANGERS OF PREMATURE BURIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 November 1870

DANGERS OF PREMATURE BURIAL. Women, from the peculiarity of their nervous organisation, are much more subject than men to those singu lar attacks which are popularly known as trances, and consequently the dan ger of premature interment in their case is much greater. A scientific English journal has the following : "The danger to which the elegant Lady Russell was exposed is too well known, both in France and England, to require details. She remained seven days and nights without any signs of life, and her interment was delayed only on account of the violent grief which Lord Russell experienced at the idea of being separated from a beloved wife. On the eighth day, as the parish bells were tolling for church, Lady Russell suddenly raised her head, and, to the amazement and indescribable joy of her husband, told him to get ready to accompany her to church. Her recovery was rapid and complete, and she lived many years afterwards to render her lord the father of a family." The second ins...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 November 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. A BaroBsa correspondent, writing to the " Crawler Times," reports :-Some more of our population have left temporarily, on account oi the harvest, but those who remain are working on steadily witk varied success. There can be no doubt that on the whole a moderate average return is being obtained by the diggers, but there are always some grumblers, while there are also some who have met with an extra slice of luck. The crushcrs have both been at work jUtely, but I am not able to state what quantity of cemeut has been got through I believe the average lately has not much exceeded half an ounce to the ton. The new rush near Willams town is still regarded with favor, and the numbers there keep up pretty well. It would be a good thing if some persons of real ex perience in quarfz-reefing would come to in spect the fine reels which are to be found here, and from some of which prospects of 4 to 5 dwt. to the ton have been obtained. I believe under proper management they migh...

<®k mtoLnt ^rps. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25,1870. IT lias been reserved for the nine teenth century to develop an event which far eclipses everything- that has happened in warfare since the world began. Living- men may congratulate themselves that they have witnessed an event the like of which they may search the chronicles of the past in vain to find. An empire containing- a population of thirty-eight million souls has been completely crumpled up in the short space of three months. A nation renowned tor its martial prowess, pre - eminent in militar}T achievements, has been laid prostrate in one short campaign. France The chosen home of chivalry, is to-day defeated and undone> and its military power is all but anni hilated. Disaster lias followed disaster in rapid succession, and each gTeat reverse has been more terrible, more crushing than its predecessor.; At pre sent the reverses have culminated in the surrender of Metz, with a magni ficent army of 173,000 men.

CLARE ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 November 1870

CLARE ENTERPRISE, On the arrival of the English mail on Mon day last, we published an " Extraordinary," consisting of a telegram containing the prin cipal items of intelligence. Some of these were sent down tbe road towards Adelaide. On reaching Sevenhills we were somewhat sur prised to fiad that there was a rival in the field, in the person of the boy attached to the Telegraph Officp, (who, we presume, had been sent by the Telegraph Master) with a written telegram containing a few items of new?, for reading which to the people be charged the email sum of sixpence. He went on to Mintaro with the same precious docu ment, still levying contributions of sixpence, not refusing one shilling wherever he could get it. He could not be prevailed upon to sell the telegram iteelf, but only its contents ; and he was also careful not to allow customers to take a copy in writing of the original. Upon his retention of this depended the suc cess of the speculation. Whether or no this speculation pa...

GA.WLER. (FROM OTJB OWN CO JIB ESPOUDENT.) JNovember 21. Gawler just now shows signs of reanimation. I counted no less tban eight reaping-machines leaving the town yesterday. This looks well. The weather has been warm for the last day or so, and haymaking ha6 proceeded satisfactorily. Snakes are most abundant, scarcely a day passes without one beiag killed iu the vicinity, and sometimes in the streets. The wheat looks well, and farmers are in good spirits. It is hoped they will not be disappointed. Much amusement was created here on Wed nesday by the circulation of ar squib supposed to refer to a gentleman of local notoriety. The " Bunyip" this week charges its contemporary, the "Times" with the printing of it, and also imputeB other actions of a not very creditable nature. Of course, nobody believes the " Bun yipV' assertions, still we are likely to have some fun over it. People say the two papers get up disputes of this kind as a mutual affair, which makes both papers cell. Indeed...
