PIANOFORTE PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 June 1869
PIANOFORTE PLAYERS. (By a Yankee in the Slusical World ) It is a great mistake to suppose that pianoforte playing consists in the know ledge of music and in the dexterous manipulation of the fingers and wrists. There are some people who seem to play all over the moment they seat them selves before the instrument. Their bodies, from the roots of their hair to the extreme joints of their toes, all con tribute to the performance. To watch such persons playing you would naturally conclude that the pianoforte is the most exacting of instruments. And so it may be, perhaps ; though to our minds we frankly confess that the trombone appears to us more exacting. For if it does not require the feet-like the piano, it demands the breath; and though it suffers you the privilege of assuming any attitude you will-you must sit to play the. piano-it compels into apparently torturing animation whatever latent vitality your face may happen to" possess. But why a person j should think it requisite to p...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JUNE 18,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 June 1869
Sfo |fcri[thqrK grps. FRIDAY, JUNE 18,1869. THE question of emigration to the British Colonies, we observe, has lately been attracting public attention at home, and a number of gentlemen in terested in alleviating the great amount of distress amongst the working classes have addressed a large meeting of persons, mostly artisans, at the Agri cultural Hall, Islington. Our friend Mr. R. R. Torrens, now M.P. for Cambridge, was chairman, and we quote a portion of his speech on the occasion, in which he gives a glowing account of colonial life; and it would not surprise us if ere this his hearers, excited at the existence of such an El Dorado at the antipodes, should have made up their minds to inundate us with a fresh flood of immigration. Mr. Torrens said " It was a more manly course for every man to emigrate than to remain in this country, if he found himself in that miserable position of being unable to get an adequate return for his labor. From all parts of Great Britain, particularl...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT) June 15. His Excellency the Governor returned to town on Saturday after twelve days tour in the 8outh-Eastern District. H i reception there has been carried out with great zeal by the magnates of the district, who have done their best to display their resources, and parade before the vice-regal eye the immense imbortance which the "garden of the colony" has attributed to i&lt;h The programme which wa* prepared for Sir James appears to have been completed to have been completed to the great satisfaction of all concerned. The agricultural character of the district was well maintained by a monster ploughing match, at whieh 75 ploughs set to work. This was followed by a dinner, during the coarse of which his Excellency administered some wholesome advice, which our agricultu rists will do well to " read, mark, learo, and inwardly digest." He pointed out what it too generally forgotten in the settling of young colonies, that the case with whi...
TRAVELLING IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 18 June 1869
TRAVELLING IN AMERICA. i When jour hospitable host (for all Americans are hospitable) sees that you really don't like institution hunting, you will find out surprising as it may appear, that he does not like it either. Englishmen have hitherto thought it right for the most part to come out as Tocquevilles on a small scale, or as amateur representatives of the Social Science Association; and their hosts naturally think it right to treat them wuh the respect due to philosophical inquiries. ; The mirdest of English travellers is ready to pour out an ex temporary dissertation upon the in fluence of democracy, the laws of social evolution, the influences of race, and the working of natural selection as applied to the human being. Perhaps he has never seen a school since he was flogged at Eton; but he will go the rounds of Boston wi th unflagingpatience and pronounce on the relative advan tages of the two systems (if we can be said to have a system) of national education.: The worst part ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 June 1869
FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1869. Is the present system of farming in South Australia the easiest and most| profitable? or cannot a superior mode of tilling the ground -be found and! adopted ? All persons, even the most i unthinking, are obliged to admit that | if the present system of farming is really the best, it is a very bad one, inasmuch as the land now under culti vation is not only full of noxious weeds, thistles, and grasses of varieties! tQo numerous to mention, but is getting fairly worn out through excessive! cropping. The land 'that has been under cultivation for a period of ten or I a dozen years has become miserably | poor and almost utterly worthless; thej agriculturists have also become as miserable and poor as the soil. What j 'is the principal cause of this dete rioration of South Australian soil ? It] is gradually becoming worse every] season, until at length the farmer will scarcely realize the extraordinary small average of five bushels per acre, for which perhaps he may ...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. The prisoner James Ritson, at pre-. sent awaiting1 his trial on the charge of the murder of the Rev. Mr. Hill, con. tinues to conduct himself in a quiet or derly in the Melbourne Gaol since his removal-thither, as there have not been the slightest indications of in sanity in his manner; certainly none of those symtons which usually accompany homicidal mania have exhibited them selves. No stranger simply seeing the prisoner as he sits in his cell would imagine that the apparently quiet, inoffensive young man before them could be guilty of the bloodthirsty crime of which he stands accused. -Age.
