AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870

AUBURN. (FROM OUB OWN COEBfiSPONDENT.) December 22. Yesterday &b Mr. J. B. Taylor and his man were breaking in a colt it got the rope entangled in its legs while they were lounging it and broke away. A baker's cart was standing in a y&rd close by, towards which the horse rushed, leaping the fence. The baker seeing it coming, ran to his horse's head. While so doing the colt leaped clean over his head; it then made for the Main street. In front cf the yard a female was sitting waiting in a cart, at which the horse rushed, when she turned the cart round away from it. The colt came in contact with the back corner of the cart, and com pletely capsized it, breaking off one of the shafts, and throwing the woman out on to the metalled road, giving her a severe shaking and great fright; but I am glad to learn the female is not much hurt. The colt afterwards rushed into Mr. Adamson's yard, which stopped its mad career. I should think the authorities ought to put a stop to colt...

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 December 1870

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. It took place in an old-fashioned country church, some distance from the bustle of any large cities; was per formed by the old rector, wno seemed glad to hurry over the service, and was witnessed by a few old women and giddy girls on a miserable, wet, and unpleasant day. They had waited after the ceremony was over, and the couple had gone into the vestry, hoping to catch a glimpse of the youthful bride and bridegroom; but, to their intense chagrin, they left the church by the vestry door, and were out of sight before they emerged from the church. No one knew who they vere, or what induced them to be married there. They had suddenly appeared in the place, and as suddenly left it. Sylvester Lee had wooed and won the lovely Beatrice Wentworth; but her parents never liked the companion ship, and used every endeavor to separate the happy couple, whose time passed pleasantest when thej were most together. While Sylvester was ./ . i - i allowed to visit the house of hi...

A CASE OF SERVANTGALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

A CASE OF SERVANTGALISM. At the Birkenhead County Court, tlie other day, Anne McCabe, a young* Irishwoman, sued Mr. James De Woli^ merchant, to recover £2 on account of wages alleged to be due. The plaintiff had been engaged as a u plain" cook. According to the defence, the plaintiff would not clean tne kitchen fireplace, and another servant had to do it. Having been desired to prepare a warm i bath, and remonstrated with for not having done so, she told Miss De Wolf that she " would have seen her dead and first" before she would have done it. She had not been there a week when she was ordered to leave, but she would not go without a month's wages. When Mrs. De Wolf went into the kitchen to look after affairs, the plaintiff assailed her with "Wo man! don't be coming here after yer dirty scraps. Send yer orders in writing." Mr. De Wolf has a dairy, where fresh butter is made for the family, but Miss McCabe, with national prejudice perhaps in favor of the Cork or Waterford article, re...

TIGHT BOOTS AND WEAK EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

TIGHT BOOTS AND WEAK EYES. There is something' after all in the notion and belief of our old-lady friends that tight boots produce weak eyes. Since the new-fashioned boot made for, and worn by, ladies has come into use, we have been consulted in various in stances for a weakness of vision and a stiffness about the ocular apparatus which we found at first difficult in ac counting for, since we were unable to detect any abnormal condition of the eye to cause this disordered vision, or to trace any constitutional disturbance } J . ; ' likely to produce functional phenomena. A mother, wise in her generation, given to bestowing roses to Harpo crates, the God of Silence, asked us if the tight boots worn by her daughter might not produce the distressiife symptoms of asthenopia complained of. To this we assented, and upon the tight boots being dispensed with, dis covered that the cause of the mischief must have been removed, for the in jurious effects upon the eyes ceased sublata causa, tol...

THE GOLDFIELDS. " J?latf stale, and unprofitable." This is the sum total of Barossa news for this week. Ho new " rushes," no lucky " finds," Diggers looking out for Christmas, hoping for the wherewith to pay the piper, and anxiously looking for good results from crushings. Barossa looks almost deserted, many having left for harvesting, or to recruit their exchequers otherwise. The old hills are still beiog worked with varied success. Victoria Hill is entirely closed, and will be until after the holidays, when several parties intend having another trial.

On Hatch's Hill little is being done, the yield not being according to expectations. One or two holes at work have not been bottomed yet. The Affghans have had another crushing, but the yield was small. Green Hill wears its usual appearance, and those parties who are at xvork are satisfied wit...

MARK TWAIN'S WAR MAP. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

MARE TWAIN'S WAR-MAP. Mark Twain publishes in the. Buffalo Express his first war map. His ex planation is given below: TO THE READER. The above map explains itself. The idea of this map is not original with me, but is borrowed from the Tribune and the other great metropolitan journals. I claim no other merit for this production (if I may so call it) than that it is accurate. The main blemish of the city paper maps, of which it is an imitation, is that in them more attention seems paid to artistic picturesqueness than geographical re liability. Inasmuch as this is the first time I ever tried to draft and engrave a map, or attempt anything in the line of art at all, the commendations that the work has received, and the admiration it has excited among the people, have been very grateful to my feelings. And it is touching to reflect that by far the most enthusiastic of these praises have come from people who know nothing at all about art. By an unimportant oversight I have engraved the ...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 29. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 29. Anniversary services in connection with the Bible Christian Chapel, Auburn, were held on Sunday, 25th insfc. Miss Thorne preached two impressive sermons morning and evening. The Rev. A. StubbB (We^lejan) also gave an excel lent sermon in the afternoon. The congrega tions were pretty large, especially in the even ing, when the chapel was crowded. On Monday the tea was held in the Town Hall, which was largely attended, considering the great number of farmers who could not leave their fields on such a warm and favorable day for reapiEg. It did not interfere with the public meeting which followed, as the chapel was comfortably filled at an early hour. Mr. J". H. Adamson occupied the chair, giving a stirring opening address, as regards financial and other matters. Mr. W. C. Spicer read the report of receipts and expen diture for the past year, the payments being about £139, leaving a balance due to the trea surer of £4 10s. Mr. Pollard g...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

mtltp: grpa. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1870. THE great struggle in Europe drags wearily on. The news this month is destitute of that sensational character \ which has marked the last few mails. It is significant, however, from the fact of its being so barren of important and decisive events. No great battles have been fought, no armies captured.1 With the exception of the operations j before Paris, the war is assuming ai more desultory character, and there is therefore greater likelihood of the struggle being a protracted one. Paris remains intact. Not a single attack has been made either by the be seigers or defenders since last advices. It is asserted that the King of Prussia, j from motives of mercy, has so far| spared Paris the horrors of a bombard-1 ment. * ~ He wishes to save the fair city from destruction, and relies upon the inroads of famine to force its capitula tion. We are inclined to think that he is actuated by other motives than those of mercy. It is possible that the Prus...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

ADELAIDE. (PKOM! OUE OWK COBBESPOKDEKT.) December 28. Christmas has once more come and gone with its load of multifarious joys and sorrows, and we have now entered upon the last week of 1870, a year full of events both wonderful and strange-so strange, that monarche on their thrones have trembled, fearing what the next act in the remarkable drama would be, and Governments which have paseed through some extroardinary events have been shaken to their foundations* Empires and kingdoms which have stood firmly consolidated for many years have been overturned, and their rulers sent far away from the seats of their government, and never likely to return. Perhaps never in the history of the world have such extraordinary events crowded one upon another in such con tinuous and unchecked speed as the recent ones upon the Continent of Europe, from the CEcumenical Council to the expected struggle between Hussia and Turkey. This year, then, is rapidly dying out, and 1871 is about to be ushered in...

AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

AMATEUR CONCERT. An amateur concert, in aid of St. Joseph's Orphanage, was given in the Town Hall on Tuesday evening. Owing to the number of entertainments which have taken place in Clare lately the attendance was not larger the Hall being about half filled. There was not a sufficient number of vocalists to impart variety to the proceedings. Upon the Misses Boland and O'Leary fell the greater part of the labor, and those ladies are entitled to great prase for having exerted themselves in so commendable a cause. The concert commenced with the ** Song of Australia," by the whole strength of the Com pany, after which Misses Boland and O'Leary performed a duet on the piano. Ming Oooney than sang a solo " Scene# that are brightest," in each a manner as to win an encore. Miss Boland and Mr. Wickert next appeared, and performed a duet on the piano and violin, which was followed by a solo from Mr. SfcyleB. " When the swallows homeward go" was cre ditably given by Mie& Boland and Mr....

You are discussing a loan in property, but if you let things go on I vou will have no property left," He drew a picture of the misfortunes of France, and offered to have a hundred thousand rifles brought over I from America, aa well as powder, bullets, and cartridges. The battle must be fought man I against man. A good army must be formed 1 in the south, and then advance on Paris.

MEETING AT MINTARO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 December 1870

MEETING AT HINTARO. A public meeting was held at the Devonshire Hotel, Mintaro, on Monday evening, December 26, to consider the combination amongst the millers in the district to charge Is per bushel for grinding. There were very few present, the farmers being busy getting in their crops. The chair was occupied by Mr T. Priest, who strongly condemed the action of the millers. Mr. Gr. Faulkner explained that lOd per bushel had hitherto been charged for quantities over 50 bushels, but now the farmers had good crops the millers put on an extra 2d per bushel. He expressed his determination not to give them a bushel of wheat, but would get flour from Adelaide, and hoped other far mers would do the fame. He moved- "That an agreement be drawn up, and farmers re quested to sign the same, pledging themselves not to Bell wheat or purchase flour from those who have eo combined." Mr J. Torr seconded. Mr it. Lathleen proposed that circulars be printed and forwarded to the places that would be af...
