The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, APRIL 16,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

iik 3frntthj>ro FRIDAY, APRIL 16,1869. AMONGST the articles which are likely shortly to figure largely in the Aus tralian export trade is that of animal food, beef and mutton, the best methods of preserving which, so as to enable it to stand a sea voyage, are now exciting a great deal of interest, both in these colonies and at home. Scientific minds have been at work for a length of time on this subject, en deavoring by a series of experiments to obtain the means oi preserving meat in a hot climate and rendering it after its transit across the sea, during a voyage of some months, as fresh and sweet as if it had not been subjected to any process whatever. The want of good wholesome meat, at a price which shall place it within the reach of the poorest families in the mother country, has long attracted attention, and it is with pleasure that parties in England who have evinced an interesWin the matter see that there is a likelihood of their desire being carried to a success ful issu...

A VISIT TO A 6LOUCHESTI5R BACON FACTORY. (From the "Agricultural Gazette.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

A VISIT TO A 6LOUCHESTI5R BACON FACTORY. (From the "Agricultural Gazette.*') For a fat pig to be changed in a period of twenty-four days into smoked-dried bacon is certainly to be looked upon as a triumph of art. We do not proclaim a new fact in making" the above observation, for the trans formation is accomplished in the time specified in many bacon-curing establishments. Still we look upon the process as interesting, and as in timately connected with the porcine section of the farmer's live stock. We have just visited Mr. Cole's bacon factory in Cirencester, where accom modation is provided for the slaughter and after-treatment of 600 pigs per week, although the number at present in hand is less than 300. A regular supply of swine is purchased during the entire year, and in order to render the curing process successful in sum mer, an under-ground cellar is pro* vided, furnished with a strong iron roof, over which 300 tons of ice are stored j thus a uniform temperature is maintaine...

As UKDIGNIFIED MATOR. - The Cork " Constitution" reports an extraordinary scene in the theatre on Friday night. In the prefatory verses of the pantomime an allusion Was made to M the famous Trojan, Mrs. Scannell," who was eulogised for her performance in the Court House during the election, especially for having shouted, ''Liberty for ever! Down with the Tories!'* The Mayor, who Was present* was struck with admiration, and standing up, cried out, * Hear, hear; that's right. Down with the Tories! down with the Orangemen, I say!" This unexpected outburst of magisterial impartiality and dignity created great com* motion In the houses, and there arose a very general'chorus of hisses, mingled with shouts of "Turn him out!" His worship observed a yonng gentlman in an adjoining box joining in | the cry, and tried to get near him with the intention, as it was supposed, of inflictng per* sonal chastisement upon him,but was restrained by the boxkeeper. After some little time he again sprang u...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 13. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

ADELAIDE. (fboii oub owir coeeespondekt.) April 13. The Stockade question has at last been settled for the present bj the appointment of Mr. Sheriff Boothby as Comptroller, and Mr. E. B. Scott, late Sub-Protector of Aborigines, as Superin tendent - two gentlemen in the selection of whom the Government are considered to hare exercised great judgment. A revised code of regulations are to be drawn up at once, but tha report of the Stockade Commission it is sup posed will not be made known until laid before Parliament; so the public must be content to restrain their curosity until then. It is generally thought that there will be somthiBg sensational about it, but rumour cannot be relied on. If, however, it should turn out to be half as lively reading as the Volunteer Enquiry, the Govern ment Printer will do well to strike off an extra number of copies without waiting for orders. By-the-by, would it not be a good thing to promote the circulation of the M Government Gazette" if the editor...

SEMI-DETACHED WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

SEMI-DETACHED WIVES. We wonder that, now the elections are over and the quidnuncs of the clubs are busy with their gains and losses, no one has attempted to give a reason for what was after all the most remarkable j feature in the whole electoral struggle. It is true that women found stouter opponents than weeping Home Secre-' taries and senile Commissioners of Police. But it was not so much the stoutness of the defence that was re markable as the utter breakdown of the attack. Not that Miss Becker broke down. Face to face with the revising barrister she brought into the sharpest j relief the irreconcilable antagonism of | woman with the law. No one could have brought home more forcibly to her injured sisters that within the Jour seas woman is a martyr and a slave. The provoking part of the business was that her sisters owned it, and went quietly on with their crotchet as before. If Miss Becker, to reverse Mr. Bou | verie's epigram, is a leader who really leads, her fair clients are...

WATERVALE. (FROM OOUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 14,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

WATERVALE. (FEOU OT7B OWN COEEE6PONDENT. April 14,1869. Little has occurred daring the past week out of the usual course of business in this locality, excepting that the mid has been partially at a standstill, on account of necessary repairs to the machinery. The country is beginning to have quite a pleasant appearance from the springing grase, which I observe is more forward here than a few miles further north. Numerous ploughs are at work, and we shall soon hear the farmers calling out for rain if the present weather continues ; though those who are still carting wheat to Port Wakefield are wishing differently, as many parts of the road are expected to be impassable in the wet weather. Whilst on the road topic, I may mention that there are patches of the main line, both between this and Penworthan, and immediately eouth of the township, which will probably cause many accidents this winter if not attended lo in time.

PHYSICIAN OP FREDERICK WILLIAM OF PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

PHYSICIAN OP FREDERICK WILLIAM OF PRUSSIA. No profession, perhaps, offers greater opportunities for active benevolence, than that of a physician, and few men have made better use of these oppor tunities than Br. Christopher Louis Heim, one of the physicians to the household of Frederick William III, Sing of Prussia. Called by his high appointment to frequent intercourse with the great of the earth, he still devoted himself with equal interest to the amelioration of the maladies of the poorest, to whom he frequently ex tended that substantial pecuniary help which is often of more value than medicine. His colleague, Dr. Hufe land-also eminent as a physician and a Christian, and of whom the Queen Louisa said, Hufeland is at one and the same time physician for body and soul"-gives the following particulars and anecdotes of his excellent friend. Heim was a physician by nature, and Ms correct judgment ana remark ably quick perception were the saving of many lives. His activity was un wear...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

MISCELLANEOUS. The new suspension bridge at Niagara Falls, commenced more. than, a year ago, will soon be completed. The bridge extends from a point just below the American falls to a point on the Canadian side, just below the Clifton House. The span is 1,264 feet 4 inches, and the two cables are 1,900 feet long. In each cable there are seven wire ropes, each inches in diameter. The span is said to be longer than that of any other suspension bridge in the world. When in our youth we were taken to see a juggler who performed the well known feat of swallowing a sword, we were taught to believe that the weapon, instead ot being a rigid rod of metal, was telescopic, and doubled into itself when it was introduced into the man's mouth. Those who have cherished that belief, or who have occasion now to explain the trick to their little ones, may be interested in hearing that a famous French physician lately experi mented upon a Chinese conjurer, who swallowed a sabre nearly three feet long,...

A. SOUTH AMERICAN THIEFTAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869

A. SOUTH AMERICAN THIEF TAKER. I have had some acquaintance myself with Calibar, who has practised his profession for 40 consecutive years in one province. He is now about 80 years old, and of venerable and dig nified appearance, though bowed down! by age. When his fabulous reputation is mentioned to him, he replies, "I am good for nothing now; these are the boys." The "boys," who have studied under so famous a master, are his sons. The story is that his best horse-trappings were once stolen while he was absent on a journey to Buenos Ayres. His wife covered one of the thiefs footprints with a tray. Two months afterwards Calibar re turned, looked at the foot-prmt, which by that time had become blurred, and j could not have been made out by other eyes, after which he spoke no more of | the circumstance. A year and a half later, Calibar might have been seen walking through a street in the out skirts of the town with his eyes on the ground. He. turned into a house, where he found his tr...
