MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
MISCELLANEOUS. AN .AMEBICAIT CUBXOMEE,-Many years since there did dwell i a a certain town not a hundred miles from that far-famed place where orthodox divines- are fitted up for their profes sion and calling, a certain D.D., notorious for bis parsimoniousnesa, which would ran to the wildest extremes. One day this doctor of divinity chanced into a bat store in New York, and after rummaging over the wares, selected an ordinary-looting hat, put it on his reverend head, ogled himself in the glass, then asked the very lowest price of it, idling the vendor that if he could give it cheap enough he thought ha might buy it. " But," said the hatter, "that hat is not good enough for you to wear-here i. what you want," showing one of hia best beavers. "'Tis the beet I can afford, though," returned the theologian. " Well, there, doctor, ril make you a present of that best bearer if you'll wear it and tell your friends whose store it came from. I'll warrant you'll send me cus tomers enough to ge...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
THE GOLDFIELDS. During the past week bb diggers have been enjoying their holidays, there is nothing of any importance to report Little or no work has "been done, consequently business lias been wofully slack, and Barosea generally looks miserable and deserted. However, I see old faces beginning to show up again, as well as a few fre-h ones, and from what I can learn we may expect a considerable accession to our popu lation after harvest. There ie plenty of ground about Barosea that has never yet bean pro spected, and a little fireeh blood well supplied with the " sinews of war," will it is to be hoped open up some of our auriferous hills The .crushera have not been very busily employed as a matter of course; but several lots have been put through the mill with varied success. From the Deep Lead Heardon had 10 tons crushed, which yielded about half an ouoce to the ton, and five tons from the next claim went barely £ dwts. One or two other lots have been operated upon; but I have not ...
CLARE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
CLARE RACES. The Clare races, which wore looked forward to with eo much expectation, came off on the Course on the Bungaree run on Monday, January 2. The weather and the ground were everything that could foe deBired. The weather was certainly warm during part of the day, but not eufferably GO, whilst the heavy rains of the few previous days secured a total absence of dust, and put the ground in firet-rato trim for racing. When the bell rang for the first race the visitors were not so numerous as we anticipated, considering the general holiday and the glorious day. As the afternoon wore on, however, numbers continued to arrive, swel ling tbe aggregate to between 400 and 500, in cluding a large proportion of ladies. There were very few predestrians, horsemen pre dominating, who whilst tbe running was going on kept galloping across tbe course in all directions. Under the circumstances spills were looked upon as a matter of course, and several amateur* found themselves unceremo niously ...
REFRIGERATING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
REFRIGERATING MACHINE. A remarkably simple and valuable invention by Herr Franz Windhausen, a civil engineer, of Brunswick, has just been brought into operation in London, with every prospect of a rapid and successful application to an almost endless variety of useful purposes in the arts of life. Its object is the pro duction of a high degree of cold, whereby either ice may be obtained in considerable quantities for table or other requirements, the interior of heated apartments cooled and refreshed, or air or fluids lowered to any desired temperature. The means by which these results are obtained are purely mechanical, no chemical agent what ever being employed in the process. M. Windhausen's apparatus is based on ; the well-known physical law that when ! air is condensed its temperature is raised, and when rarefied it is lowered, and that principle is utilised in the fol j lowing manner:-Common air is con densed by manual or steam power, whereby its temperature is raised. The heat...

FALLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
FALLEN. The following sad story is told by the Pastoral Times:-'' On Satur day last, December 17, six prisoners were seat from Deniliquin en route for Darlingliurst Gaol, Sydney-they were heavily ironed feet and hands, and three out of the six had occupied pro minent positions at Deniliquin. James McKey was once agent here for Mr. Elliott, and being found guilty of em bezzlement, was sentenced to hard labor in Darling-burst Gaol for 18 months. He was of a family holding a very respectable position in Ireland, and many in Deniliquin think he has been hardly dealt by. James Iron was well-known at Old Bendigo in 1853, and for years afterwards there he kept the Black Swan, he having, we hear, kept a house of that name in Adelaide. He had a very large business at Ben digo in the palmy days of the gold fields-he was hotelkeeper there, butcher (wholesale and retail), con tractor, livery-stable keeper, and was the first, we believe, to crush quartz for gold j afterwards, he kept the Bridge ...

The North Argus. FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 January 1871
©Ive mtftfit J^vps. FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1871. SINCE our last issue we have witnessed the expiration of 18?0 and the birth of 1871. The old 3-ear has been played out, and is now a thing1 with which j historians alone will have to do. There j can be no doubt that the year which is now in its infancy is -big j with the fate of empires and of meu. j However lowering1 the year may have; opened as it regards the future of the I world, it is beyond denial that the year | has commenced under auspicious cir- j cumstances for South Australia, and of all the favored parts of the colony there | are perhaps none to be compared with the North. Whatever prosperity may' fall to the lot of the colony in the coming year, it will be largely partici pated in by the settlers in the North. There are periods in the history of, nations and of men when it is most becoming and proper to pause, as it were, in the journey of life, and take a retrospective and prospective glance to look for the landmarks of prog...
