AUBURN. (FKOM OUR OWN COBBESPONDENT.) December 8. A serious catastrophe occurred on Friday week to a f. male residing at East Auburn, named Mrs Mildren, sen. She had been shop ing till about 7 o'clock, after which she attended a class-meeting. Her manner and conversation seemed lively as usual. She re turned home apparently in good health, but her hour had almost arrived, for a short time after retiring to rest her daughter in the ad joining rt om heard her fall, and instantly ran to her assistance. She said she felt a very un usual and severe pain in her head. Dr. Walls was immediately sent for, who very soon dis covered that she had been seized with a fit of apoplexy, and gave little or no hope of recovery. Within two hours of the attack she expired. The deceased was very much respected, and bore her age well, for, though 61 years old, she was as sprightly as many a younger person. On Sunday her remains were followed to the East Auburn Cemetery by a large number of relatives and f...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 December 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. A good number of diggers tire working with a will; on the new rush between the 01) and jtfew Townships, at Barossa, and which will connect the Deep Lead and Hatch's Hill. The place presents quite a lively appearance 5 and although no fresh holes have been bot tomed, the hopes and expectations of the dig gers ere sanguine ae to good results, and in this they are var a t d by the first trial crushing made by the Affghans. In the neighborhood of Williamstown a considerable improvement has also taken place. Davy and party have had a very satisfactory crushing of five tons, which has yielded 1 ©z. 11 dwt. to the ton. This £oes far to disprove the opinions which were pretty freely expressed to the effect that this rush would at best prove very moderately payable. Another lot of about 12 tons of cement is being crushed, but it is not" likely to prove quite so rich as T>avey's, though it is expected to yield an ounce to the ton. The prospecting party has not been idle, an...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 December 1870

THE- GO&DFIELDS. The Deep Lead, I am afraid, will cot turn out as good aa was expected, the lead being either very patchy, or very crooked, or both. Several shafts have beea bottomed, but not, on payable gold. Xhe only claims, that I can hear of as showing favorably are Trenowdon'a and Wiekham'e, bo^i of whom have washed pay attie prospect a. The AflghabS are still hard at work, and are crushing to-day. I hear they expect a gocd return. The t there, however, are working cheerfully and vigorously. Green Hill stiil keep up its character in the few claims that are being worked. Six tons from Mc Crosbie's claim yielded about 2 oza. to the ton. This claim is so good that from f to oz3. to the bucket has been repeatedly had. Several other claims are rich, if not equally so with the above ; the holders are reserving their stuff for a general crushing at Christmas. Old Vic toria Hill is almost deserted, only one party being at work there. The prospectors of ihis hill had 12^ tons cr...

MABEL'S 'FOLLY. I Any one who Jbas" never been to Clifton lias, ^issed one of the numerous pretty scenes thakJSouth ' Australia abounds in. Situated in one of the pleasaatest partsof the colony, it coulc boast of sights which far and near were proverbial, and many picnic parties chose this delightful locality, where beneath wide-spreading: gums, and by the side of freshwater rivulets they could while away the day in agreeable sports, till the lengthened shadows from the slowly-descending snn warned them that the day was drawing to a close, and they must hurry back to the city. The healthy nature of Clifton was one reason wiich induced the Misses Fayne to select it as an appropriate spot for their educational establish ment for young ladies. There were other acadamies for females in Clifton, but they were of such an indifferent character that to compare them with the establishment of the M isses Fayne v ouid be to do great injustice to those accomplished ladies. It was essentially a ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 December 1870

<i\u mtltfint gligits. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1870. THE present session of Parliament is hastening- to its close. The Appro priation Bill has been carried through Committee, and its third reading is to come on in a few days. This hurrying on of the Appropriation Bill is a sure indication that the end is close at hand. Notwithstanding', there are several im portant measures still undisposed of, and among them the Land Bill is en titled to pre-eminence. Born with the birth of the session, it has been the subject of months of careful study, and yet after all its prospect of be coming law is remoter to-day thai^ when it was first introduced. This question has been the bone of con tention between the country and suc cessive Ministries, until the present Government met the popular demand in a liberal and conciliatory spirit. That spirit has not been reeiproeatcd by the Upper House. The amend ments introduced by the Council have been so numerous, and of such a character that the B...

DRAMATIC ENTERTAINMENT AT SEVENHILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 December 1870

DRAMATIC ENTERTAINMENT AT SEVENHILLS. On* Thursday, December 8, the students of the Catholic College at Sevenhills gave a dra matic entertainment in aid of the fiinds of St, Aloysius Church. Notwithstanding the rather high priee for admission the large room was . crowded, about 120 persons being present. The ? room was plentifully decorated with evergreens,, and in front of the stage in illuminated cha racter waa writteu, «' Virtue on earth is oft a hidden gem"-the moral which the play sub mitted is intended to teach. The room was somewhat feebly light, and the stage arrange ments were in some respects defective, but altogether the arrangements reflected credit upon all parties concerned. lhe piece selected for the display of ther histrionic talent of the students was the drama of "The bidden Gem,"written by Cardinal Wiseman. The play is far from being well known amongst playgoers, and yet it is in every lespect worthy of the commanding genius of the great man who wrote it j althoug...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 14. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 December 1870

ADELAIDE. (FfiOM OUB OWN coeebspondent.) December 14. Mr. Alexander Hay, M.P. for East Torrens, has obtained leave to introduce a Bill to legalise the marriage with a deceased wife's sister. Three times has a Bill of this kind been passed by Parliament, and as many times been disal lowed by the Imperial Government. But not withstanding this, another attempt is to be made to pass this Bill, and Mr. Hay is to so licit leave to suspend the standing orders so that this Bill may pass through all its stages in one sitting. The " Advertiser," in a lengthy leader, has shown the value of such a Bill being passed, and In a series of common sense arguments has shown its feasibility. Laat Saturday's "Irish Harp" devotes about two columns in an attempt to overthrow the argu ments of the " Advertiser," ani closes by using the following rather striking remark ;-u At all events the fact of there being so strong a desire to burst the bonds which have hitherto regulated the sacred ties of marriage is...

The flaring woodcuts and handbills, together with the an jiouncemeHt that he would be accompanied bj the veritable Australian Tom Thumb, naturally excited a curiosity to see this great man in the new world of wonders. We anticipated seeing a tolerable attendance, but were scarcely prepared for such a crush as actually took f lace. The large Hall was crowded in every part. We have seldom seen a Jar^er assemblage i han that which greeted Verttlli on Tuesday evening. There could not have been less than 250 present. As liar as financial matters are concerned the per formance was eminently successful. We cannot, however, speak altogether Id terms of praise respecting the performances of Yertelli.
