ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORBESPONDENT.) May 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 May 1869
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUB OWN CORBESPONDENT.) May 26. The important question of roads-inen or macadamised-has occupied a great deal of attention in the Chamber of Commerce during the week, Thursday afternoon being devoted to a lengthy debate on a motion by Mr. B. A. Tarltoo, -affirming the desirability of opening up districts which contain a large area of good agricultural land by means of iron roads in preference to atone. The Bubject is one upon which the legislature has already expressed its opinion in the most practical way, as witness the many miles of railway lines which hare been constructed during the last year or two, and which are still being constructed through some of the finest agricultural lands in the colony, so that the Chamber of Comtr-erce, are in reality, only echoing the opinion of the House in dealing with a motion of this kind. The feeling in many parts of the colony seems to be in favour of doing away with the expensive machinery of the Road Board, if it is found th...

KOORINGA. (FEOM AN OCCASIONAL COBEEBBONDENT.) May 25,1869. On Saturday last (May 22) one of the pas sengers travelling by the North-East mail met with a very severe accident. It appears that he got out of the mail-cart near one of Mr. Chew ings'g hate, and did not get up again as he should have done. The driver, not being aware of the circumstance, drove on, knocking the unfortunate man down; one of the wheels passed over and smashed two of hiB toes, besides bruising him about the body. The mail pro ceeded on its journey, as no one was aware of the accident, and he was not missed for a con siderable time afterwards. Fortunately, how ever, a person who was going for the Woor koongaree mail-bag found him lying on tbe road. He instantly went back, fetched a cart and conveyed him to Kooringa.

Five armed men entered the Aus tralian Joint Stock Bank at Braidwood on the 9th inst., for the purpose of helping themselves to the valuables. Mr. Gilham, the manager, who had been temporarily absent from the office, suddenly returned and found his visitors just commencing1 operations. Seeing Mr. Gilham enter, the ruffians immediately fired upon him, but without result, and an alarm having been raised the woul-be burglars de camped without having succeeded in their object. Three of them were sub sequently apprehended by the police.

MONDAY MORNING AT BOW STREET. (From the "Daily News." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 June 1869
MONDAY MORNING AT BOW STREET. (From the " Daily Kewi." Regular passers-by of certain thoroughfares-the lawyers, mer chants, Government officials, and mis cellaneous workers whose business carries them down particular streets during- the few minutes preceding 10 a.m.-become acquainted with a queer procession which meets them punc tually each morning at that hour. Men, women, and boys-frowsy, drag gletailed, and forlorn, or flaunting and with a tarnished smartness-walk in single file, each by the side of a policeman; and looking in the aggre gate like an academy of vice and crime and folly taking its formal " constitu tional" between school hours. These are the night charges being conveyed from the police cells in which they have been confined since the day or night before to the police court, where the sitting magistrate will dispose of them according to law. It would be invidious to point out Bow street as pre-eminent for the dicipline and order which it shares with some olher of th...

TENDERS. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 June 1869
TENDERS. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN" ARGTTS.> SIR-Will you allow me a short space in your valuable columns to make a few remarks in reference to the sys tem adopted in Clare in calling for tenders for house-building. Last week a tradesman issued notices to the effect that he would receive tenders for the erection of a three roomed house. Several parties left their work to tender for the said building, which they according^ did, although the specifications. I believe, were not ready until late in the evening. I don't say they were purposely kept back by the architect-although it looks suspicious - to visit favored parties 5 and then, in order to throw out all tenders but one, Architect & Co. discovers that another room is required, and of course, the work being urgent, there is no time to com municate with the lowest tenderers for the three rooms. | Now, Sir, I did not think such a piece of concocted jobbery could have existed here 5 but the system of u you scratch my ...

ADELAIDE. (FBOM OTJB OWN COEEEBPONDENT.) Jane 2. He far as the Diocesan Synod is concerned they bare effectually got rid of the Ritualistic question. Mr. W. A. Cawthorne, on Tuesday, moved-as be had previously intimated his in tention of doiog-That it was expedient for the welfare of the Church of England that Messrs. Stanton, Dove, Webb, and Greon, clergymen, leave the communion, and the result of such a vaguely-worded motion has surprisyd no one. Its fate might have been foreseen by the mis guided individual who introduced it, but no doubt his enthusiasm in the cause prevented him from noticing what was patent to all the members of Synod when it came before them that an attempt to remove the obnoxious priests in such a manner, was contrary to the principles of right and justice ; and even those who left strongest as anti-ritualists could not give their support to a resolution in such a shape. It was rejected by a large mcjoritv^ and the Synod then proceeded to discuss the subject ...
