THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870
THE CROPS. There is every reason to believe that the North will this season be the prineipal granary of the colony. It is therefore important to as aertain as near as possible, the average yield, either exaggeration or depreciation are alike calculated to exert an un?'ue influence upon the markets. It is unquestionably true that the crops in this part of the colony are unusually heavy. Many years have elapsed eiace sucia a yield was obtained. In the South and South East several will reap next to nothing, and a few such failures will considerably reduce the average yield ia those district?. In the North, however, we have not heard of a single instance of their being a total failure. The anticipated yield varieB considerably, but every farmer ex pects to realize a fair average per acre. The bill crops this year are by far the lightest, the excessive wet preventing the full development of the plant. On the plains circumstances have been in every respect propitious. The abundant rains h...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN COEEESPONDENT.) December 21. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870
ADELAIDE. I (EKOM OUE OWN COEEESPONDENT.) December 21. On Monday the English mail arrived, and . the feverish excitement that existed prior to its arrival is to some extent allayed. It appears that little actual fighting around Paris has been going on since the last account, and the Prussians are endeavoring tc starve the French into submission. The Prussians still continue to be successful, and are everywhere defeating their enemies. Several of the French forte have capitulated, and there has been some severe fighting in several of the French occupied departments. The Duke of Aceta has been elected King cf Spain, by a majority of about 70 votes. Russia is assuming a threatening a?peet towards Turkey ; and there is JO doubt that there will be a war between those Powers. The former is said to be remodelling her army after the Prussian pattern. In England we learn that the Princess Louisa has been betrothed to the Marquis of Torne. Margaret Waters, the notorious baby-farmer, has been ...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870
>ht ^rps. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1870. BEFORE the period for our next publi cation comes round Christmas, with all its attendant joys, will have come and gone, and the ever-memorable year of 1870 will be fast sinking* to its grave. This season of the year is pre eminently one of festivity. It is not merely a time of national rejoicing', but it is that one period in the year when all Christendom indulges in exultatipn. It is the annual jubilee of the world, which is hailed by all classes of men. There are portions of the year set apart as holidays by the observance of which the people testify their loyalty to country and sovereign, but Christmas is the general holiday of the world by whish it shows its loyalty to the great Sovereign of all. To some nations it is true the glad ness of this season wiU be tinged with sorrow. Christmas will find France clad in the habiliments of national mourning', and the pleasures of the time will be forgotten in the presence of her overwhelming calam...

CRICKET. ,OliD OoiiLEGrlAlfS Y. AUBUEN CLUB. The above event took place at Auburn on Friday last. The weather was disagreeably hot, and occasionally dusty, hut nevertheless a large number of spectators were present, who appeared to evince great interest in the pro ceedings. The match was undoubtedly the best contested of the season. Visitors from Kapunda, Glare, and surrounding districts were noticeable. The batting of Messrs. Bhead and Smyth was very good, as was also the bowling of Messrs. Holmes and Howie, of the Auburnites, and Kichardson, King, and Orase of the Col legians, but aB will be seen from the Bcores below, the latter were doomed to defeat, the Auburn Club proving victorious with ten wickets to fall. Mr C. Richardson was Captain, and Mr H. Bowley Umpire for the Collegians; Mr K. E. Holmes Captain and Mr Cobb Umpire for the Auburn Club. Subjoined are the scores; OLD COLLEGIANS. First Innings.

CLARE DRAMATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870
CLARE DRAMATICS. The Glare Amateur Dramatic Club gave a performance in the Town Hall, on Monday and Tuesday evenings, in aid of the Clare School Funds. Monday turned ont unusually wet and wintry, and it was scarcely to be ex pected that the people would turn out in such numbers as if the weather had been favorable. Besides, which, there has been a plethora of entertainments in Clare lately, and it is only a natural sequence that the audiences should suffer. However, when the appointed time ar rived the Hall was about two-thirds full, a fair portion being in the front seats. It is true the audience would not bear comparison with former occaaions/bufcit was quite as- good as could be expected under the circumstances. The curtain rose to Craven's two act drama of " Meg's Diversion"-which, from what we heard we expected to find a production of the first order. We can only say that in the quality of the piece itself we were sadly disappointed. Its beauties, if it possesses any, are of to...
WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN COEEESPONDENT.) December 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870
WATERVALE. (FBOM OUR QWN COEEESPOKDENT.) December 22. On Sunday, December 4th, (wo missionary sermons were preached, in connection with the Bible Christian Society, by the Revs. J. Han cock (from Kapucda) and O. Lake. The at tendance on eaeh occasion was not very large. On the following Monday there was. a public meeting, presided over by Mr. J. S. Cole. Ad dresses were delivered by Messrs. Hancock, Trewin, and Lake. The collections at the close of each service were veiy good, considering the limited number of persons present and the dul ness of the times. Votes of thanks to the chair man and Mr. Hancock closed a very instructive and interesting meeting. I see by placards that there is to be a grand Christmas concert (sacred) here on Wed nesday, 'the 28th inst., by Watervale ama teurs. There is not the least doubt that this will be a great success, it being the first ever given in this township. Harvest has fairly commenced in this neigh borhood, and from all X can learn, the yield ...
