FAIR BUT FALSE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 February 1871
PAIR BUT FALSE. Beauty, frankness, and apparent amiability may be but the disguise of one in whose breast throbs the heart of a demon. It is not easy to judge of a person's character by the quiet unas suming- demeanor of his countenance, a thousand proofs to the contrary have quieted the pretentions of physiogno mists, and all are bound to candidly admit that the face contains no index of the heart. The tale I am about to relate will satisfactorily prove this fact. Edith Woodhouse had lived to be 20 years of age before anyone condescended to throw his heart before her. This was owing to the acknowledged peculiarity of her disposition, which was known to be of a nature which men could not endure, and, therefore, none sought to make her the partner of their lives, until Norman Charlton fell in love with her. Not living in the immediate vicinity^ of the town, he had not heard the damaging reports which were cur rent respecting Miss Woodhouse's tem per; hut love is proverbially blind, w...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 February 1871
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1871. THERE is every reason to believe that one effect of the present prolific harvest in the North will be to cause an increase to the agricultural population of these parts. Farmers who during the last few years have maintained a precarious existence upon the almost exhausted lands of . the South will -naturally be attracted by the glowing reports of abundance, and induced to throw up their present holdings and seek a new field of enterprise in the virgin soil of the North. There are many who seem to think that agricultural settlement has about reached its extreme limit in the North, .but. the present season seems like a practical refutation of such a theory. Some - of the heaviest crops have been gathered on the border lands where the agricultural and squatting elements have been brought into colli sion. Lands which a few years back were looked upon as the undisputed dominions of the squatter are now occupied by flourishing farmers. This land of thing1 M ill n...

HHYJVIE. (FEOJT OTTE OWN COKBESPONLtENT.) January 30. The wheat is pouring in pretty freely now, and the harvest in at length nearly over. The crops of coarse are above the average, but a great deal of wheat bas been lost through tbe unfavorable weatlicr. Our neighbors up at Undayla held a meet ing the other night for the purpose of ap pointing a teacher in the place of Mr. Grey, and the result was, I believe, that they broke up between 1 and 2 o'clock in the mcrLing, each man determined to appoint a schoolmaster ior himBelf. Two tcachira have already been appointed in this manner, and have commeuccd operations. I saw an Undalya man yesterday who says that the people of Ui.duha have built a chspn! principally becausetbey intended it for school purposes, and also a teacher's resi dence ; and now that the place is all complete, the; Bible Chriptisns have appointed one of their own flock in epile of the residents who are principally concerned.

ATHLETIC SPORTS AT AUBURN [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 February 1871
ATHLETIC SPORTS AT AUBURN The athletic Bports, which were postponed on the 31st December on account of the in clement weather, came off on Saturday List, on the flat to the Bouth-east of the townBhip. The weather, though not all that could be desired, was as pleasant as could be expected consider ing the season of the year. There were about 200 visitors oil the ground during the after noon, including a considerable number ol ladies. Mr Bleechmore had a refreshment booth and stand erected, which seemed to be well patronised. The sports passed off very satisfactorily, most of the events being closely contested. The lion's share of the stakes fell to the lot of Mr H. Walton, jun., of Clare, who succeeded in carrying off the two highest prizes. The Committee are entitled to great praise for b wing placed such an excellent pro gramme before the public, and carried it out in so successful a manner. Arthur King, Eeq.

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 1. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 February 1871
ADELAIDE. (EROM OUB OWH CORRESPONDENT) February 1. It ib unusual for a magistrate to express an opinion foreign to law, more especially to call in question any peculiar characteristic of re ligior. But last Wednesday Mr. Beddome, in dismissing a roan charged with playing at a game of chance in the Eastern Market, said " that the defendant was no wofee than those who adopted similar means for raning money for religious purpoees at bazaars." It is un fortunately too true that at aome bazaars the most iniquitous methods of obtaining money are adopted, such as lucky bags, ruffles, post offices, &c., and it is a pity that any denomina tion should be led to uBe such means to obtain money. A simple sale of goodB none can con demn ; but these games of chance should not be indulged in. It is to be hoped that His Worship's hint will be taken by those to whom it refers. On tl:e same day three of Cobb & Co.'e mail* drivers were charged with using horses that were unfit to be wor...
