The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 July 1869
FRIDAY, JULY 30,1869. IT is not to be wondered at that our neighbors on Blyth Plains should think a District Council in their neigh borhood would be very beneficial to them, for they may then stand a chance of having a few of the dilapi dated, and, we may say, dangerous, roads in their vicinity seen to and re paired. Repairs necessary for the con venience of the farmers have long been needed, more especially during- the past twelve months, as the land that was previously open has been fenced. Of course, when there were but few! fences teamsters and equestrians, by making a tour round, were able to travel, if not expeditiously certainly j with more ease than they can at the present time, as the only course now I open to them is to follow the road and take it as it comes, whether it be good, i bad, or indifferent. The roads on the upper side of the plains, are impassable even to horseman, through the nu merous deep and steep creeks or water courses that traverse from the hills to the ...

FORRESTERS RAILWAY. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 July 1869
FORRESTERS RAILWAY. (To the Editor of tbe ROBTHEBX ABGUS.) CI TFC 1 .11 11 oir-Jfernaps you will allow me to make a few remarks, through your columns, in reference to the unreason able time the train leaves Tarlee, as an alteration that would admit of passengers travelling1 to Adelaide or any of the towns between the two places returning the same day would be much appreciated. At present the train leaves the terminus at 3 o'clock p.m., if my memory serves me right, which is a great disadvantage to the northern inhabitants; and in justico to them, alterations should be made so as to enable passengers to reach their destination at a reasonable hour. Eleven a.m. would be far more convenient to the settlers for a start than -3 p.m., especially those who have to travel by the mail-cart, as they are not benefited by the new rail way, for by continuing their journey in the mail to Kapunda, and thence by the mid-day train, they arrive in Ade laide before the train leaves Tarlee. If the newl...
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 27, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 30 July 1869
ADELAIDE. (FROM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT ) July 27,1869. A utile amusement has been created by a lively correspondence between the Corporation and Mr. Samuel Tomkinson. The worth; banker a short time ago, scandalized by out rageous infringement of the laws of morality under cover of the darkness of Gilbert Place, which bounds the back premises of the abode of high respectability, wrote to the council offering to pay half the cost of a lamp there if placed permanently; also half the cost of one at the corner of King William and Ourrie streets. The council, however, appear to be in earnest as regards the practice of rigid economy and reduction of the overdraft, and as they seem determined not to allow the Gas Com pany to sell an extra foot of gas if they can help it, they replied to Mr. Tomkinson's ap plication by stating in the most friendly man ner that the council would permit the use of the lamps "at the expense of the Bank." Nothing daunted, Mr. Tomkinson makes a further request to ...

HOW TO MILK COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 August 1869
HOW TO MILK COWS. All persons reared to farm labor should know how to milk a cow. So they do, generally, as far as drawing the milk from the udder is concerned. But that is only a part of the process. We have often seen this important labor so dirtily, bungling-ly, carelessly, and cruelly done, that we have wished that a milking school could be esta blished to show people how to treat their cows, and get the most milk, and to the best advantage, out of them. As every dairy-maid ought to know how a cow should be milked, either by ones, twos,* or fifties, we have some suggestions to make on the proper and best modes of doing it, both in the treatment of the cows and the conduct of the milkers. It has been much too common a way, where several cows are kept, in the grazing season, to drive them into yards, more or less filthy from the droppings, half the time muddy under foot, the cows hunching each other, frequently without sheds or shelter in bad weather, and doing up their work in a ...
LION HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 August 1869
LION HUNTING. One of the lions was some distance in the rear of the other, and I set the laggard, of course, down for the brute I had wounded. Being* closely pur sued by two of the dogs, he was brought speedily to bay. Now was my time; and, stepping smartly out, I was soon within fifty paces of my mark, when, stooping down, I took a deliberate aim with the elephant rifle, and fired. The bullet passed through both the animal's shoulders, and he fell, managing nevertheless to raise himself en his haunches, in which: position, growling hideously, he lashed alternately his sides and the ground furiously with his tail. I, therefore, followed by Bonfield, ad vanced further towards him, and was about to put an end to his struggles, when the other lion who had stationed himself in the rear, in a thick bush a hundred yards or so off, came bounding! along with a ferocity of purpose in his j royal countenance such as I never saw 1 matched in one of his species. I was then in a kneeling posture...
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 August 1869
NEW SOUTH WALES. An attempt has been made to escape by the prisoners confined in Bathurst Gaol, but failed; they were headed by the bushranger Pearson, whose cell was afterwards inspected, when his irons were found to be cut, and that he had succeeded in cutting- a hole through the wall to facilitate his escape. The Government steamer Thetis has returned from a cruise to the north ward looking for wrecks, and reports having sighted a vessel believed to be the Douglas, ashore on Elizabeth Reef, the only apparent damage being that the rudder was unshipped. i Our Sydney telegram says that at a meeting held on Friday night, it was resolved to form a society for the aboli tion of capital punishment. A work of supererogation, surely, seeing that the authorities, having just pardoned Pearson, Captain Hovel, Eangi, and various other murderers, can scarcely carry out the extreme sentence of the law in mere ordinary cases of murder. Virtually they have already abolished the " Whoso sheddeth m...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 August 1869
FRIDAY, AUGUST 0, 1869. . THOSE who take an interest in politics can now indulge their taste in this respect, as the Governor, with the usual formalities, opened the business of the session on Friday .last. The viceregal speech was read, and honorable mem bers were left to business, or in the words of the address, " to the exercise of their impartial judgment, so that their deliberations may tend to improve our institutions, and to consolidate and advance the colony." Those who ex pected anything remarkable from the opening speech will be somewhat dis appointed, inasmuch as Ministerial policy with regard to the more impor tant questions is kept carefully out of sight. In the first place it refers with gratification to the appointment of His Excellency to the government of this province, then gives a passing glance at the recent visit of the Duke of Edin burgh ; a slight attempt at self-glorifi cation is then made by its authors in reference to the large and important railway works w...
