KOORINGA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 20, 1069. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
KOORINGA. (FEOM ous ow cgeeebpondent.) April 20, 1069. A young girl, aged 15 years, vho gave the name of Bowman, was brought before W. H. Challower, Esq., J,F^ charged with stealing a saddle and bridle and a horae. It appeared that she took a saddle and bridle off a dray belonging to a man named John Thomas, and then helped herself to a horse out of Mr. Hal lett's paddock. She was captured at Blaok Sock by Corporal Smith. Very little is known about her. She was remanded till the sitting of the full Court. The Miners* Arms Hotel has just changed its landlord, Mr. F.

THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. On Monday last the usually quiet town of Clare was thrown into a state of great excitement by the rumor that his Excellency Sir James Ferg-usson, our new Governor, would pass through the place about mid-day, on his way to Booyoolee, Mr. Hughs's station. Early in the morning, men and boys might have been seen with ropes, boards, ladders, and branches of trees, as busy as a swarm of bees, erecting a triumphal arch opposite the Court house. About 12 o'clock, the people were getting impatient. However, shortly afterwards, his Excellency, ac companied by his private secretary and aid-de-camp, arrived, having left Ade laide at half-past 4 o'clock in the morning by express train, arriving at Kapunda at 6. He was greeted with three cheers by the populace, and a salute of 14 guns by the blacksmiths in Mr. Paterson's yard, who brought their artillery (anvils) to bear on the occasion, it is to be regretted that his Excellency could not enter Clare by the Main street at th...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
NORTHERN ARGUS &nbsp; FRIDAY, APRIL 23,1869. We are compelled to hold over our usual leading article through press of local matter. An accident of a very serious nature occurred on Monday last neat Donnybrook. It appears that Mr. and Mrs. Chapman, of Spring Farm, were proceeding from their residence to Clare, when on getting into the cutting a little to the south of Donnybrook they saw two horsemen riding furiously towards them, one of whom came in contact with the cart, breaking the shafts, and knocking both horses down. For- tunately, however, the occupants of the vehicle were not thrown out, and consequently sus- tained no injury beyond the fright and a severe shaking. The rider of the horse was thrown violently to the ground, where he lay in a state of insensibility for a few moments; the horse died shortly after the accident. The Clare Wesleyan Anniversary took place on Sunday, the 18th inst., when three excellent sermons were preached by the Rev. C. H. Goldsmith, the n...
THE GOVERNOR'S RECEPTION AT WATERVALE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 April 1869
THE GOVERNOR'S RECEPTION AT WATERVALE. Our Watervale correspondent hav ing, in conjunction with another gentleman, supplied the following to the Register, requests us to copy it: Late on Thursday evening we be came aware of the Governor's intention to pass through our township, en route to Booyoolee, and an irrepressible de sire at once seized the public mind to do him honor: It was suggested that our attentions might be a little embar rassing to his Excellency, as it was understood the visit was not formal, or official; but Watervale could not be made to understand, either by the sophistry of the quidnuncs or the va cillation of her neighbours that the soul of loyalty was formality, or that a dash of spontaneity might not be an agreeable feature in it. She lost no time in com municating with head-quarters, and received a rejoinder which stirred up in her a perfect tide of loyalty, which has to-day come to the flood. She at once set to work with a will, and con structed a handsome t...
THICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
THICKS. If people commit crime, we can give tliein into custody and so get rid of them. Acquaintances who are the slaves of vicious indulgence, generally take paint to conceal their propensities, and we are therefore not annoyed by them ; but against habitual tricks we are defenceless. I once knew an elderly gentleman who poked the per son he was conversing with in the ribs with great force and a sharp forefinger, whenever either said anything- which he thought remarkable. The trick is amusing enough when represented on the stage, but in real life and to per sons who are ticklish, it is an insuffer able nuisance. The last time this man made me his victim was after a political dinner in the days of the Anti-Corn law League, when, being quite out of my depth, I was naturally anxious to impress the assembled guests with a conviction of my profoundness, and had partially succeedcd, when my troublesome friend caused the most sapient of my remarks to termi nate in a wriggle and a giggle w...
THE CAPE GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
THE CAPE GOLD FIELDS. The following letter appeared in a late Mount Alexander Mail from a miner who left Castlemaine for the above gold fields : " Natal, December 16, 1868. " I arrived here on the 12th inst. I told you in my last that Mauritius was dreadfully unhealthy. Three of our party were laid up with the fever. I fortunately escaped. We were de tained a few days in consequence; but it matters but little, I am sorry to say, for to our great disgust we found that nearly all the reports we had heard regarding the gold fields were d d lies. The so-called diggings had been worked by 14 men for 12 months, during which time tlicy have only knocked oiitsomethree ounces of gold -distance certainly Jends enchantment to the view-for few here, appear to know anytning about the diggings. One large merchant of this place has evidently been the cause of circulating so many false reports. He showed us some quartz frem which he said he could get 60 ounces to the ton, which I am sure would not ...
