THE NORTHERN ARGUS. FRIDAY, MAY 14, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 May 1869
FRIDAY, MAY It, 1869. THE news by the mail is act of a very sensational character. " Wars and ; rumors of wars" there are none, and we &lt; accept this as a token that anticipated Continental squabbles have come to &lt; nothing.. Professions of peace are made in France, and public opinion is nearly unanimous against warlike demonstra tions; whilst in Spain quietness reigns. The chief item of interest of conrse is that relating1 to the disestablishment of the Irish Church, which may be almost looked upon as mi fait accompli; the success which it has met with up to the present time rendering1 its passing* a , certainty. Mr. "Gladstone introduced the measure on the 1st March in a speech which excited the admiration of all who heard it, and which has been characterized as one " of consummate ability, a clever exposition of a great and elaborate scheme, and like his budgets a perfect masterpiece of facts and figures." The Economist says of it:-"Everything had been remembe...

MISCELLANEOUS, [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 May 1869
MISCELLANEOUS, There is a Yankee whose' nose is so sharp that after using; a pocket-handkerchief for' a week it is full of holes. The man who is awfully " urbane " to his wife before strangers is generally also "her bane" behind their hacks! To cure deafness, tell a man you're come to pay him money. It beats acoustic oil all hollow. .. It was a well-meant but novel compliment from a parishioner, who declared to her minister she did not know which most to admire-his sermon or his wife's new dress. " Nigger, who am be fuss man datinterduced salt perwishuns into the navy P * " Dar, now, you's too hard for did colored individual.'' ''It was Noah, nigger, when he took Ham board his ark."

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 May 1869
ADELAIDE. (FBOM OUB OWN COBRESPONDENT.) May 19. Nothing of any pa- ticular irfterest has tran-^ spired in tie city during the past week ; busi ness appears to be dull, and in consequent cf this', amusements seem to be but little cared for. The crimiminal sittings commenced their busi ness on Tuesday; but there is not a heavy calendar this time, and the whole of the cases frill be disposed of early this week. During the trial of several, attention has been directed to a matter which was noticed by one of the judges some time ago-that prisoners who have served their time in the Stockade are sent out of prison without the means of providing themselves with fresh clothes; that they have difficulty in consequence in obtaining employ ment ; and also that they are, to use the words of one of the unfortunates, so " hunted about by the police" as soon as ever they appear in town, that they are either compelled to wandtr about the country in rags, or do thaf, the natural consequence of which ...

A duel has taken place in Belgium between Count de Malartic and a Hanoverian coltfnel. Thedispute arose out of a discussion in a Paris salon re specting Count Bismarck, to whom Count de Malartic is related. Both combatants received injuries. The Hanoverian was struck in the ear, and stunned for a short time by the blow; his adversary was wounded in the side and but for some notes and papers in his coat pocket would probably have been killed. He is now, however, out of danger, and has been brought back to Paris. The screw steam corvette Druid was launched on March 13 at Deptford.

Sfe mtlm'tt gltps. FRIDAY, MAY 21,1869. THE Commissioner of Public Works aj Few days ago paid a visit of inspection 1 ti the railway works in the North-I the Roseworthy and Foresters and the I Port Wakefield lines. That gentleman j has evinced a very laudable desire to I make himself thoroughly well ac-1 quainted with the method in which I public works in his department are) being carried out 5 not that there is 1 any credit due to a minister who) merely does his duty, but because it has not been made a part of the duty I of Ministers to become practically con-1 versant to any great extent with the I progress of large public works away] from the metropolis. No doubt the] visit of the Commissioner has been I hastened, if not entirely brought about, j by the complaints which have reached I the Government respecting the last-l named line-it would have saved a| considerable deal of trouble if he had 1 taken a few days holiday some months 1 ago 4br the. purpose; but there is every I prob...

BEWDLEY, BRIBERY, AND BEER. (From the "Daily Telegraph." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 May 1869
BEWDLEY, BRIBERY, AND BEER. (From the " Daily Telegraph." A constitutional historian has ob served that, in the days of the Planta genets, Hig-g-, the son of Snell, would not have been permitted to change his name to Snelson without a license from the reigning Coeur de Lion or Lack land. But in these easier times, when the humbler classes no longer feel the " kind pressure of the social chain" immortalised by Lord John Manners, the manumitted Higg has only to pay for a newspaper advertisement pro claiming his intention to the world at large, and he may call himself not merely Snelson, but Brian de Bois Guilbert, or Montmorency Bohum Percy de Courcy de St. Maur, if he so pleases. Who shall hinder him? Echo answers, " Nobodyand Higg changes his name. Looking at this pleasant recognition of freedom in nomenclature, and at the liberties taken by the Metropolitan Board of Works with the time-honored appella tions of many London thoroughfares, we are impelled to ask why a few English prov...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 28, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 May 1869
&lt;ilw Ijtotjtfyro FRIDAY, MAY 28, 1869. THE young1 men of Glare are consi derably in the back-ground with regard to athletic sports. The Kapunda and Gawlerites have their clubs and gymnasiums whereby the young men in their towns can enjoy that physical exercise so necessary for developing the bone and muscle, and for the benefit of the health. The Gawler Athletic Club, which has been in existence but a very short time, has issued a programme in the papers such as has never been equalled in the colony, and which has excited a large amount of competition, the entries amounting to about 180. Now, if the young men of Gawler can form a club and issue a programme in so short a period, what is to hinder those of Clare from following their example ? In olden times gymnastics and athletic" sports were pursued by the Greeks and Romans as an art neces sary to the health and full develop ment of man. It was the constant and continual practice of gymnastics and military exercises that ...
