THE WESLEYAN MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 16 April 1869
THE WESLEYAN MUTUAL IM PROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the JKOETHEEU- AEGUS.) Sir-For a long time past, the young- men of Clare have wished for a Mutual Improvement Association of some kind, and until about ten months ago, it was " all talk and no work" simply because there were not any who would take it upon themselves to start one. But about the time referred to above, a few young men resolved to set to work immediately and form a few rules for the proper working of the association, which was done; and it only required a very short time to show how much it was required, not only by the young men of Clare, but also of other places, for in six months from the time the association was formed to the first half-yearly soiree-which was held in the Town Hall in December last-the number of members on the books was between 50 and 60. It has been thought by some indi viduals that the society should have been formed in connection with the Institute. Now, I do not see sufficient argu...

CLARE AND WALLAROO TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
CLARE AND WALLAROO TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of the NOKTHEBN AKGUS.) j1 SIR-I was rather surprised on hearing the address read to his Excel lency Sir James Fergusson on Monday . last to find that nothing was mentioned about the construction of a tramway or railway between Clare and the mining district of Wallaroo. Now, Sir, it strikes me very forcibly that the inhabitants of Clare could not have had a better opportunity of en deavoring to advance that much-re quired object. If the subject had been broached to his Excellency in the address presented to him as he passed through the town, it is most probable that he would have recognised the fact at once that a better means of transit is required between this place and Wallaroo than exists at present. In my opinion it is high time something 1 was done in the matter. Apologising for taking up so much of your valuable space, and hoping to see the matter taken up in a spirited manner by the inhabitants of this district, I am; Sir, &...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. A very distressing accident is re ported from Ash ton. A young man, named Blythe, who was only married a month ago, called upon a friend, who, on meeting him, exhibited a revolver recently won in a raffle. He was calling the attention of his friend to the weapon when it went off," the contents entering Blythe's head, and causing death in about two hours. An explosion occurred on the morn ing of January 29 at the Springwell Colliery, J arrow -on-Tyne. Three miners were killed and six injured. Thirty-six men were in the seam at the time. One leaves a widow, and the two others a widow and three children each. The explosion was caused by the ignition of after-damp. At Rome, New York, recently a man was hanged for murder.

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 20. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
ADELAIDE. (*B01£ OUB OWN CORBXSFOKDSNT.) ~ April 20. The chief erect of the past week has been the Autumn Meeting of the South Australian Jockey Olub on the Old Adelaide Course known more familiarly as Paddy Coglin's. At j the last meeting of the Club at Thebarton k j was so poorly attended, and evidently such 1 little interest waB taken in the proceedings, that | a speedy wind-up of their operations was pre I dieted ; for it was not considered at all likely | that the antipathy of its patrons to the old ! coarse, or their prejudices in favor of the balmy atmosphere of Thebarton, redolent with the odouriferous perfume of the slaughter-house*, could be overcome. However, things have | taken a turn for the better, it is to be hoped ; Messrs. Bagot and Coglin have shaken hands over it, and a revival of the good old racing days is now looked for. Tbe change from Thebarton with its dusty road and other disad vantages to the picturesque-looking Park Lands : within an easy distance of town...
INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. At the Killimore races an extraor dinary jump was made. When the steeplechase was being run, Flying Cloud baulked at the log jump, nearly opposite the grand stand, throwing its rider forward on its neck. Before he recovered himself, Jumping Frog took the jump, clearing* the fence, Flying Cloud, and its rider, without any injury further than grazing the hair of the latter. The old sleepers on the railway be tween Geelong* and Melbourne are being taken up and new ones substituted. It appears that the old sleepers have been only about six years laid down, and are thoroughly rotten-a sufficient proof that stringy bark is ill adapted for ex posure to the action of the weather. The new sleepers are of red gum. Standard, A large number of Germans passed through Ararat recently, bound for the land which they have taken up in the vicinity of Horsham. The emigrants state that they all held farms in the Hamilton district, but consider that the chances of success a...
