ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRSPONDENT.) April 27. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
ADELAIDE. (FEOM OUB OWN COBEESPOKDENT.) April 27. Well, have the Northern Teritory before us again, and this time it appears to be all "cceleur de rose." The news of the safe arrival of the Moonta at Wellaroo, from Port Darwin, on Friday afternoon at once put the shareholders into a state of agitation and anxiety to learn what Mr. Groyder'e opinion was of their speculation, or whether he had been there long enough to have had an oppor tunity of forming one. However, the informa tion that came up to town on Saturday morn ing appears to be of such a nature as to allay any unpleasant feelings on the subject, even in the minds of the most lachrymose of the specu lators who have hitherto regarded themselves as a class of unfortunates most unmistakeably sold. It seems tkat the party reached Port Darwin, after a pleasant voyage, on the 5th of February, thus making the trip in 40 day?. Immediately on arrival the stock and stores were landed in safety, with the exception of one hoeee, which ...

I - INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAMS. (From the Adelaide Papers.) VICTORIA. Melbourne. April 26. The sittings of the Roman Catholic Council closed yesterday. April 24. The Tasmanian cable was cut adrift after 150 miles had been payed out, owing- to a severe storm. The Hurricane's wreck and her cargo are to be sold next week. A good deal of the miscellaneous cargo is floating ashore. Jones has again addressed the elec tors of Ballarat, and been well re ceived. Wheat is worth 5s 3d to 5s 6d. April 27. One hundred pounds have been sub scribed towards a fund for the relief of the passengers and crew of the sunken ship Hurricane. The prospects of lambing in the Western District are considered good. April 26. The Tasmanian cable has been re covered, and signals are passing satis factorily; but the submerging is not yet completed to Tasmania. April 28.

WATERYALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 29. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
WATERYALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 29. His Excellency the Governor passed through the township on his return trip on Saturday last, when neaalv every house had a flag flying, and he was heartily cheered at one or two points as he passed by. The proceeds of the entertainment given by the Mutual Improvement Society last week amounted to over eight pounds. Four or five such soirees per arnum would soon stock a good library with all the requirements of the place, besides supplying newspapers and pe riodicals for a reading-rcom. There is serious talk of at once eettmg to work to get a good public room built, which will be a great boon to the place. The north road running through the town ship is, I presume, to be remetalled shortly, as drays and men are busy carting and cracking stones all op the street.

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) April 27. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
AUBURN. (P£03I OTJE OWN CORRESPONDENT ) April 27. On Saturday last our township was honored bj the presence of His Excellency the Governor, and suite, on their return trip from the North. His Excellency only remained a very short time, in order to change horses, and then started* with the intention of arriving at Kapunda in time for the 4.30 train. Although we pre sented no long address, for the reason that we knew it would only delay his Excellency, and that he was only travelling as a private gentle man, and not officially; yet we are none tho less loyal to our Queen and Governor than our neighbours who had the honor of so doirg. We hope to see his Excellency in Auburn at the forthcoming show in September, when we shall have a fitting opportunity of displaying our loyalty. An accident occurred on Sunday last to a man named Cain, who had been in Auburn on that day. On returning home be very recklessly turned from the road in order, I snppose, to shew the jumping capabilities of hiB...
NEW ZEALARD. Via Melbourne, April 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
KEW ZEALARD. Via Melbourne, April 26. The Duke of Edinburgh landed on tlie 12th. There was g reat enthusiasm, addresses being1 presented, and a levee held on the first day. On the second day there were illu minations, and his Royal Highness saw 400 Maoris perform the war dance. On the 3rd day the Governor's ball took place. His Royal Highness leaves for Nel son on the 18th. There have been more massacres. Te Kooti attacked Mahaka pa, which was defended by friendly natives. After a long struggle, the friendlies surrendered, Te Kooti promising them quarter; but no sooner had he gained admission than he began butchering them without mercy. The Hauhaus lost 12 men. Several settlers are missing*. O # Mr. and Mrs. Lavit, their children, and Mr. Cooper have been fouud mur dered. ~ The Hauhaus afterwards, with 100 horses laden with booty, proceeded towards Wairoa, but were driven back by the Maoris.
THE NORTHERN TEEEITOEY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
THE NOBTHEEN TEEEITOEY. On Friday last the ship Moonta, from the Northern Territory, arrived at Port Wallaroo. Everything- seems to have gone on favorably with the survey party so far, and Mr. Goyder feels confident of completing the survey by the appointed time. The Moonta arrived at Port Darwin on February 5, having* made the passage from Ade laide in 40 days. All the party stood the voyage well. Immediately upon landing Mr. Goyder had a large building erected for the reception of the stores, and while the vessel was being unladen, he and two or three others explored the various arms of the bay in the ship's long boat, and found fresh water in each of them. The land within a few miles of the bay is of a deep rich soil, thinly timbered with stringybark, ironbark, and pines, and appears to be well adapted for cultiva tion. The Moonta weighed anchor on the 6th of March, and beat out of the harbor in the teeth of a contrary wind, but was forced to bring to until the following day. On ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 April 1869
FRIDAY, APRIL 30,1869. OUR subscribers will see that we have reduced the Northern Argus to a more convenient size, and we hope in so doing to be able to present it in a more compact and appreciable form. We take this opportunity of thanking the very numerous class of subscribers who have favored us with their patronage since the commencement of our under taking, and we beg to intimate to them that our paper will not be allowed to suffer by the change which, we may explain, is made on account of its for mer size necessitating* the introduction of more extract matter than we consider desirable, and chiefly because we wish to act upon the principle that is carried out by the promoters of lcttery ven tures, viz., that there should be an utter absence of blanks in our adver tising columns. We disagree with the principle of the Yankee editor who in variably left a white page in his paper in order that his readers might fill it up in their own imaginative -style, and shall not therefore fo...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
NEW SOUTH WALES. A bushranger bailed up a party of travellers at Cobbodah, on the Tam worth road, and compelled them to give up their valuables. He, however, obtained little booty. The ruffian, though alone, met with no resistance. The Albury Banner sa}-s that a fissure was left in the earth in the neighborhood of Moorwatha by an earthquake shock which was felt by the inhabitants there a few weeks ago. The fissure varies in width from a few inches to several feet, and is large enough in some places for a man and horse to fall into. It extends in a straight line for about two miles.
INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. The Daily JVews, referring to the Castlemaiae flagging stone, says: " When quite new, while it has still what is called the ' quarry sap' in it, the stone is capable of being hent to some extent, and this renders it. valuable as a rest for the ends of beams and girders that have heavy loads to sustain^ inasmuch as it diminishes the danger of unequal pressure arising through the shrinking or subsidence of i O . O J the materials of the walls or piers on j which they depend for their support. ] Slabs of the flagstone will be placed on | the tops of the pillars that have toi carry the heavy iron girders spanning the large apartment of the Melbourne Town Hall, and they are now being got ready for their places." ! Some disgraceful scenes, we are informed, were lately enacted at the" funeral of a woman who died last week. ? The husband, it appears, was a Protes-1 tant, while the deceased, who was an! Irishwoman, espoused the religion of her country. On her de...
THE USE AND MISUSE OF FARM-YARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
THE USE AND MISUSE FARM-YARD MANURE. In the notices tbat have recently appeared in our pages, of farms and crops in the Riddell's Creek and Gis borne districts, have been recorded some rather contradictory opinions on the subject of manuring-, and more es pecially with regard to the manurial value of farm-yard and stable dung. In the first place, it has to be remembered (and people who have always farmed one kind of soil are apt to overlook this) that any one system of manuring may not be adapted for soils of different character. Such happens, moreover, to be the fact; nor need the difference be a chemical one, but simply in the mechanical condition of the soil. Turning back in memory some three or four years, we find one farmer in the vicinity of Kyneton reducing all his farm-yard manure to ashes previously to applying it to his land, lest (1) it should fill the land with weeds, or (2) keep the sod so hollow that the crops in a dry time would burn up. Near Riddell's Creek we find a...
LOST IN AN AMERICAN WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
LOST IN AN AMERICAN WOOD. My friend and I separated after we had got a little way in the woods, and took different directions. The day was very gloomy and dark, and after I had travelled a long- distance without get ting- a shot I tell into the track of a man who had just gone along1 ahead of me, with a large dog- following him. " That can't he my friend Joe? no; he had no dog1 with him." I followed ; on, and walked pretty fast, in order to overtake him. After a long* walk I stopped, and brushing the snow from a large log I sat down; but the forest J being so dense, and the day so thick, I began to think that 1 had missed my bearing and was lost. I then started on again, resolved to overtake the per son on whose track I was following, who could probably put me on the rig*ht course. After walking1 a long . . o distance further, and following the track, I at length found another man's track coming into it. " That's Joe's ! Very likely; he is lost perhaps, and he is following that man ...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1869. THE Northern' Territory is again causing- some excitement, more espe cially among the younger portion of ojir population, on account of the glowing news brought by the Moonta. The rising generation of South Australia are rejoicing at the prospect of having a beautiful country like the Northern Territory to expend their time, mcney, and energy upon. The soil of this new country is rich, and the vegetation most luxuriant; while the land in general is well timbered with fine trees, and irrigated by beautiful streams of fresh water. So far as is known at present, the Northern Territory is well adapted for the rearing of horses and cattle. The plains are very extensive, and produce an abundance of grass, growing from six to ten feet high, of which there are a great many varieties -some resembling the wild oats of South Australia. The country is not very well adapted for wheat growing purposes, but it is sup posed by various experienced men that it might be cultivated...
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OUR CORRESPONDENT.) May 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 May 1869
ADELAIDE. (FROM OTJB omR COBEESPONDENT.) May 5. There is every reason to beliere that the vexatious delay wtich has taken place in the completion of the Fort Wakefield and Hoy le's Plains railway will at last be put a stop to, and the work be carried on with Tiger-that is, with all the vigor which Grcvernment usually puts into its operations, without distuibing the red tape arrangements of the of the circumlocu tion office, which at ail hazards must be at tended to. Complaints have been made far a long lime of the dilatory manner in which the works were progressing, and at length they cul minated in & deputation to the Grovemment deputations are generally regarded as a "dernier ] resBorfc," but for all the good they do in the ma jority of cases their anxious members might just as well remain at home ; the usual Minis terial answer being that " the Government will be very happy to give the matter their most careful consideration," & fact which everybody knows they alw...
