EGYPTIAN MUMMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 September 1869
EGYPTIAN MUMMIES. An imposition which is carried on in Paris on a large scale is the fabrication of Egyptian mummies. One man alone, Combalon by name, has manufactured no less* than 800 of these interesting relics of the Ptolemian era for provin cial museums alone. His export busi ness in counterfeit mummies extends over half the globe, even to Egypt itself, whence they return to Europe, with a sort of guarantee of genuineness. A skull, two fillets of veal, a dog's skin, and some linen bands, suffice for all that was mortal of a Cheops, a Pharaoh, a Ptolemy,, or a Cleopatra. From mummies to tapeworms is an ignoble transition, and only to be tole rated on the plea that both are equally counterfeited. Artificial tapeworms are manufactured at Paris in crochet, any number of yards in length, accord ing to price. When the rings consti tuting the ribs are completed, all that is necessary is to steep the future worm in a mixture of starch and gum. It is then exposed in a chemist's window. ...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 September 1869
\\t mtltfit g^jgus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3,1869. THE principal portion of the English, mail news arrived in Adelaide by tele gram from Melbourne on Monday. The Malta, which was not expected until Wednesday, was sighted off the Otway at 2 a.m., five days before she was actually due, which is an unusual occurrence, and rather surprised the inhabitants of Melbourne. There is nothing very exciting in the news. The unsettled state of affairs in New Zealand has caused a considerable discussion in the British Parliament. Bishop Selwyn advocated the evacuation by the whites of that part of the country which is disturbed, and that the settlers be compensated for the loss and inconvenience. It is rumoured that Colonel Gordon, who took such an active part in the sup pression of the Chinese rebellion, will be despatched to try his fortune against the native rebels. One of the principal events of the month has been the passing of the Irish Church Bill. The bill, after being considerably altered wit...
A REAL HERO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 September 1869
A REAL HERO. Some time ago, on board an English, steamer, a little ragged boy, aged nine years was discovered on the fourth day of the voyage out from Liverpool to New York, and carried before the first mate, whose duty it was to deal with such cases. When ques tioned as to his object of being stowed away and who brought him on board, the boy, who had a beautiful sunny face, and eyes that looked like the very mirrors of truth, replied that his step father did it, because he could not afford to keep him, nor to pay his passage out to Halifax, where he had an aunt well off, and to whose house he was going. The mate did not be lieve the story, in spite of the winning face and truthful accents of the boy; He has seen too much of stowaways to be easily deceived by them, he said ; and it was his firm conviction that the boy had been brought on board and provided with food by the sailors. The little fellow was very roughly handled in consequence. Day by day he was questioned and requestion...

Very probably the idea contained in the c-ctiou was almost & new one to some hon. mercbtra. It would be celled perhaps a step towards the representati...

NEWS AND NOTES. BY AS AUEISAIDE MAX. Thursday Morning. Notwithstanding the fact that two live Governors are at present residing in oar mids*, things in general are " flat, stale, and unprofit ble," and will continue eo until home letters are duljread and answered. As you Northerners are, no doubt, already in possession of the prin eioal items of English news, I will not touch on that subject further than to state that great satisfaction is expressed in certain quarters at the safe passage of the Irish Church Bill through the Souse of Lords. The Hon. Gk S. Kingston has published a most interesting letter of great length in one of the daily papers, which completely sets aside the claim of Mr. G. F. Angae to bs considered the "father of the colony." Some time ago the City Corporation passed a resolution directing that the bye-laws with respect to buildings be strictly enforced; but at a meeting held on Saturday last this was rescinded, in order to allow of a structure in course of erec...

PARLIAMENTARY. HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, SEPT. 2. WASTE LANDS AMENDMENT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 September 1869
PARLIAMENTARY. HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, SEPT. 2. WASTE LANDS AMENDMENT BILL. The Commissioner of Crown Lands, m moving the second reading of this bill, said the Act of last session was in fact a compromise, as some parties considered it too liberal and other* the reverse. Those who held the former view prophesied that it would, have the effect of depreciating the value of land ; but such was not the case, for the land sold for cash from March 1 to August 31 was 126,169 acres, which realised £153,928 12s,, or an average of £1 4s 5d per acre - as good an average as has been for years. There had been 12,890 acres sold on credit, realising nearly 30a. per acre. The ameuded Land Act had worked, so far, in, a very fair manner; and although land-sharking' might not be altogether done away with, a person could at the Land Office get a farm ofj 620 acres without any unfair competition. But, it was pointed out that the two clauses which the Government now wished to amend had prevented par...
