GUNBOAT DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

GUNBOAT DUEL. On the 7tli November the Prussian war steamer Meteor, carrying three guns, and the French war steamer" Bouvet, carrying; five, entered the har bour of Havannah. The Meteor sailed again, after the French mail-steamer jNouveau Monde; but the mail steamer immediately returned, fearing- capture. On the night of the 8th, the Bouvet left port, but waited outside for the German war vessel. After the expira tion of the 24 hours' time prescribed by law, the Meteor followed, a naval duel having been arranged between the officers. The Spanish steamer Fernando Cortes accompanied the two vessels. The Meteor had a crew of 00 men, and the Bouvet had 80. The Bouvet was 10 miles beyond on the coming out of the Meteor. She steamed in wards towards the neutral line, and then opened the contest by firing five shots, which the Meteor promptly re turned. The Bouvet then attempted to board the Meteor; in this she was unsuccessful. Her rigging became en tangled, carrying away the main and miz...

A DARK NIGHT'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

A DARK NIGHT'S WORK. Around the blazing- fire of an inn, situated some few miles from Adelaide, S:»t a company of men talkiug- and joking about politics, and such subjects as presented themselves for disscussion. Outside nature had endeavored to do her utmost to make things uncom fortable as possible. The darkness of the night was relieved by vivid flashes of lightning, which glanced with forked fury from the angry gloom, or opened into vast expansive sheets of flame, intermingled with the awful grumbling of thunder in the distant clouds, which seemed to Tend the heavens and shake the earth with its hideous crashes. The rain too de scended in torrents over the whole place, filling the little river which flowed some distance off. " A te.-rible night this," said one of the company as he buttoned his jacket more closely around him. " f pity any one who has business which compels him to be out to-night." "And well you might Jack," re joined another." A fearful night in deed to be out of...

FAR NORTH. KOPPERAMANA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

FAR NORTH. KOPPEB.AMA1SA. J We tale (lie following from a private letter, dated January 1, kindly placed at our dis posal : I have just spent a merry Christmas at the Lutheran Mission Station, about 10 miles from here. The Rtv. E, Hormaun is the head. Many would not believe that such a merry Christmas could be passed in this far-olT station in the North, nearly 700 miles distant from Adelaide. I have r.ever met with more hospitable people, and I can assure you they work very hard, and are doing a great amount of good to the natives, learning them the Scriptures, besides reading and writing, all in the native language. They have two fine dwellings, and a large Bchool for the natives. Independent of the station they have 1,500 sheep, 40 horses, and six dairy COWP. Hitherto the mission has progressed favourably. They are rather pinched for water at present for their stock. It is to be hoped wo shall have rain here shortly. It is badly wanted.' The country around here is very dry. I thi...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

®he m^rn gups. FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1871. NOTWITHSTANDING the exceptionally £ooil season in regard to yield, and also that the weather during- harvest ime has been such as to induce farmers to send their produce to market, it is a fact that very little wheat has found its way into Clare. "We do not expect to see as much wheat come into the township as in former favorable seasons, as most farmers are now able to send their grain to market by a cheaper route than through Clare. The bulk of the wheat for which in years past Clare has been the natural outlet, will, no doubt, henceforth find its way through the Farrell's Flat and Iloj'letun Hail way Stations, from which places, at this earl}' period of the season, large quantities of wheat have already been sent away. 11 seems to us, however, that there are other reasons besides those of a geographical character in fluencing farmers to withhold their produce. We are aware that one main reason why farmers are keeping their wheat from marke...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

AUBURN. (FROM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 12. Trade remains very quiet, no doubt in con sequence of the farmers getting in their crops, but the weather seems to baffle all their efforts, and we scarcely have two successive dajB of euitaole weather. We had hoped ere this to hare Been oar corn stores filled, as in former years by this time, but veiy little has found its way into market, as yet.. I understand the crops are very much beaten down by the weather, and the yield considerably diminished thereby. The weather dow appears to be im proving, although the heavy thunderstorm and rains last night have stopped reaping for the present, and likewise done considerable damage to the orchards, but the grapeB look very pro mising. All other kinds of fruit will give a very email return. An earthquake shock was felt here yesterday a little after 5 p.m., which was particularly ob served in the store, where it shook the crockery, tinware, &e. It was heard in the dwellings as a rumb...

HOYLETON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) JANUARY 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 January 1871

HOYLETON. (FROM OUE OWN COBEESPONDENT ) JANUARY 10. The weather having been bo unfavorable for harvest operations, we have at present had but little wheat in this township. The crops on the plains around here have been very good on tho whole; but all have lost more or Jess wheat from (lie severe gales with which we have bjeen visited. In I he hills the crops have not been so heavy, and I think have suffered most from the weather. Wheat buyers musthave madeaome treipeiidoua calculations as to the quantity of grain to com* into market, from the number cjllected at Hoyleton. Six months1 trade »e may perhaps reasonably expect at the terminus of a nilway; but should the line be extended, this township Will be nowhere?
