WATERVALE. (FBOM OUB OWN COBEEBPONDENT.) August 5th. The Foresters* Hall Committee have now | arranged their programme, and the building in connection with Court Bushman's Home will apparently be " un fait accompli" before the end of the year. The site is now being pre pared for the masons, and carts are employed removing the rarth from the foundation to various parts of the creek which require filling up. It is intended to lay the foundation-stone this month, if possible, when there will be some slight ceremony, and a public tea and soiree will be fixed for the same evening. The contract for the building has been let to Messrs, Shepherd, stonemason, and Rowlands, car penter, and the cost of the room complete is estimated at under £400. The dimensions will be 33 ft. x 50 ft. outside, and the height 18 ft. from floor to ceiling; each end will be left in such a state that offices, retiring room?, &c., can be added, as occasion requires. The hall will be a great boon to the tow...

ON BEETS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 August 1869

ON BEETS. | The growth of sugar beets is a sub ject that for some time past has been exciting a good deal pf interest and attention in this country, and we there fore need make no apology for a few remarks upon a matter of such im portance. Beets may be described as three forms:-1st, the larger agri cultural beets, to which the name of mangold wurzel has been given; 2nd, beets - proper, the roots of many of which are employed for culinary pur ; . x ' ' * - -T i better ace), to which smaller kind the sugar beets may be referred (poirees, Fr.)* 3rd, beets, the leaves of which (usually their midribs) are used as culinary vegetables. i It will be our purpose now to speak j of the first two 01 these. 1st. Mangold wurzel is becoming! popular as an agricultural root, as it grows very heavy crops, which store remarkably well, and it would seem even improve by keeping, as kept roots contain an increased amount of sac-| charine matter when compared with fresh ones-a fact explained by Pro fess...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 13 August 1869

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. Humours of a gold-field come from Edenhope. A correspondent of the Samilton Spectator says:-"Eden hope people have been on the move for the last few days, owing- to a rumour that gold has been, picked up in the neighborhood of the Glenelg River. If it should not be true, this much is certain, that a party of four men, with horse, dray, tools, &c., have gone out to give it a week's trial. The JRiverine Advertiser states that u a considerable number of swagsmen pass from the Murray to Carpentaria and back again professedly in search of work. Some of those who have recently returned give most deplorable accounts of things at Carpentaria bad rations, bad sleeping' places, dis honored cheques, &c.7 &c.j and we: publish this as a warning to the working classes, who may think that the Gulf is a desirable place to go to. Such is the rapid settlement since poop Burke and Wills led the way, that swagmen think little of going to Carpentaria...

IT is exactly nine years since the Northern Railway was opened to Kapunda, and when we look at the progress made in this particular mode of locomotion by Victoria and New South Wales-the latter colony sur by throwing a line across die Blue Mountains-a ieelin g of contempt is ^engendered at the want of energy dis played by the various ministries in :oflice during- that period.

Thereupon out stepped a stout fair woman with a profusion of brown hishevelled hair, blue eyes, and a large round head, an old tawdry dregs, a broken crinoline, stockings in holes hanging in wrinkles about her not very elegant legs, feet enclosed Jn c mvas slippers down at the heels. Sound about her ample proportions was wrappped an old white tab!ecloth, or very large towel^ giving her the appearance of a stout party in a barber's shop about to undergo shaving operations. Through the open door I observed a man laying the cloth for dinner.

The tea meeting and so red era to tale place in Mr. Paul Badcock's corn store. As all brethren cf the order are requested to appear in regalia, there will be a pre;ty g'ght well worth witnessing, and a large attend tr ee is expected. The main street is now getting a coat of metal in all places requiring it, which will make some heavy pulling for a short time. It was much required, and will be a good thing in the end ; but it will then seem more absurd than ever to have to traverse a quarter of a mile of bog at each end of the newly made road.

KOORINGA. (FfiOM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT) August 11. Nothing of importance has transpired at the Burra during the past week. Everything is dull, and business is in a very stagnant state at present, the cause of which is perfectly well known. The residents of Kooringa and Bed ruth are, however, looking forward with lively in<e rest to the anticipated working of the mine shortly. A report has been circulating of la:e that the Surra mine will be in full work, by Christmas, and if it is true, a revival of trade will be the result, and the ruins of a once flourishing iowu will quickly disappear, and comfortable dwellings erected in their etear*. . The weather has been very dry of late, and the crops in the neighbourhood are in a very backward condition. l am informed that the land in the vicinity of Gum Greek b now b rag ploughed tip in readiness for next season.
