The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 August 1869
\xt gtrps. FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1869. THE chief topic'bf conversation at the present time amongst the inhabitants of the Northern districts is the making and extension of railways. At a public meeting held on Blytk Plains relative to the proposed extension of the Port Wakefield line, it was at first resolved to ask for its extension as far as Carter's Creek; but as the movers and sup porters of the motion saw that they were not likely to meet with much opposition from those present, they thought that if the Government could be prevailed upon to extend it as far as the River Broughton, it would be more beneficial to the settlers in that neigh borhood than having the terminus at the former place. It was therefore proposed, seconded, and carried unani mously, that a memorial be presented to the House of Assembly to that effect, at the same time wisely leaving it open for them to fix upon any other terminus they might think proper. 3 The question naturally arises, is it requisite at the p...

"PASQUIN" ON THE CONNUBIAL WANTS OF BUSHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 27 August 1869
" PASQUIN" ON THE CONNU BIAL WANTS OF BUSHMEN. A buslinian in comfortable circum stances is just the very man that hundreds of very nice girls would be very willing- to accept as partners for life. Half the young" men in town do not £ro in for domestic arrangements. o n Their prospects are unsettled or limited -=-their tastes are more for billiards and barmaids-or their spare cash is de voted to a screw on Saturday to run after the Adelaide hounds-or they are contented to wait for a wife, pending* a promotion in office. The young* men in her Majesty's service can hardly afford boots and gloves out of democratic generosity; and the necessity of winking* at the frauds of political shopkeepers who hold the reins of office, renders them liable, at a moment's notice, to absquatulation. Those connected with agriculture have to keep their eye on the money lender, and no girl of sense would marry a man in debt, which resolution excludes from the temples of Hymen nearhT all the male populati...
