BLACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 July 1869
BLACKING. It appears to liave been customary to imbue shoes with an oily mixture before the time of Pliny, since it is stated by him, in the 15th book of his "Natural History," that Cato recom %} 7 mended the dregs of the olive (after the expression of the oil) to be used for anointiug bridle-reins, leather thongs, and shoes, in order to render them supple. 11 mlist, however, be remarked that a. mixture somewhat similar to modern blacking is also described by the same author- in the 35th book. This mixture was used for ink, and it was composed- of lamp-black, gum, and vinegar, and only required, therefore, the addition of oil and honey to make it into a soluble blacking. This in ference is rendered the more probable since the remains of leather, found in the Roman gravel-pit discovered in digging the foundation for the New Royal Exchange, appear to have been covered with a sort of blacking. They are thus described by Mr. Tite, the | architect of that noble building, in his "Antiquit...

MARRIAGE EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 July 1869
MARRIAGE EXTRAORDINARY. The mystery surrounding a marriage announced some weeks ag*o, by notifi cation posted up at the Mairie of the Rue d'Anjou, Paris, has been cleared up. The marriage banns proclaimed the approaching union of the Count | Paul , of Paris, with Nelissa, daughter of Hadjik, of the tribe of Bedouins belonging to the province of Mostaganem. Now, not more than fifteen years ago this same Count Paul was the glass ot fashion of the most aristocratic and exclusive circles of Parisian society. Count Paul was young, was handsome, very daring, and very rich-the only son of one of the most wealthy and most noble of the landed proprietors in the Lyonnais, consequently, the hunt leing* open, every mother in Paris took to horse, shouldered her fire-lock, and set out in hot pursuit of this most noble quarry. But in the midst of the attention of which he had become the object, Count Paul suddenly disappeared. A gamMing transaction in which he had I been mixed up (unjustly so, it ...

DANGEROUS PRACTICES. (To the Edit or of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 July 1869
DANGEROUS PRACTICES. (To the Edit or of fclie z&lt; ORTHITRN A nous.) Sir-I would wish to call the atten tion of the police force here, through your columns, to a'very dangerous, as well as unbecoming-, practice, which, unless at once checked, nlay result in serious consequences. I mean that of youths carrying* firearms and shooting about the township. I saw several youths wandering* about Sunday even ing firing off guns, to the great annoyance of the Sabbath-loving por tion of the community, and the great danger of little children who might be on their way home from school, or going to Church in the evening--to say nothing of the effects of this per nicious practice on the morals of the the young. I would suggest that the police be on the look-out for some of these youths, and make an example of them as a warning- to others, and thus stop this evil before it becomes more general and brings our quiet township into disgrace. BY drawing* attention to the above practice, you wi...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 23,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 23 July 1869
FRIDAY, JULY 23,1869. THE inhabitants of this town, and those who, for business or pleasure, occasionally pay it a visit, may con gratulate themselves on leing now able to carry on their respective trans actions without the inconvenience of wading' through mudholes, ruts, &c., when they have occasion to cross from one side to the other of Main street; the state of which in former years was undoubtedly a great drawback to the advancement of the place. The Cor poration has commenced to improve the town by the levelling and metalling of the chief street from one end to the other. It is about four months since the contractor began operations, and now it is open for public traffic, he having* completed the work. It is, however, too flat, as the water does not run into the gutters, but lays in the middle of the road; and, probably, before the winter is over, a fresh cotitino; of metal will have to be laid. With this one exception, the works have been well planned and successfully ...
BASHIKOUAY ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 July 1869
BASHIKOUAY ANTS. The bashikouay ant, also called ncliounou by the Mpongwe, is very abundant in the whole region I have travelled over in Africa, and is the most voracious creature I ever met. It is the dread of all living animals, from the leopard to the smallest insect. I do not think that they build a nest or home of any kind. At any rate they carry nothing away, but eat all their prey on the spot. It is their habit to march through the forests in a long reg*ular line-a line about two inches broad and often several miles in length. | All along this line are larger ants : which act as officers, stand outside the ! ranks, and keep this singular army in i order. If they come to a place where there are no trees to shelter them from the sun, whose heat they cannot bear, they immediately make underground tunnels, through which the whole army passes in columns to the forest beyond. These tunnels are four or five feet underground, and are used only in the heat of the day or during a storm...
THE INDIAN HORSE MARKET. (From the Argus?) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 July 1869
THE INDIAN HORSE MARKET. (From tlie Argus?) Not long since a company was started in England, with a capital of £30,000, for tlie purpose both of breeding and of buying up in the Cape i colony a class of horses suitable for the j supply of the Indian market. Thel establishment of a similar company has been often talked about here, and the subject is once more under discus sion. Judiciously managed, it could not fail to be a profitable speculation. By restoring1 the credit of the Aus tralian horse, and recalling* that native breed whose characteristics twenty years ago were so well known and highly prized, it would secure a wide circle of customers. From India, where there is a standing demand, from the English residents in China and the Archipelago, from the Mau ritius, and from the new settlements constantly arising "throughout Aus-1 tralasia, the buyers would come here I when once we had revived the old] Australian type of saddle-horse. The I trade would soon have a place among I o...
