The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 September 1869

Sfe IJmttlup gtrps. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10,1869. THE manner in which the Local Courts of South Australia are con ducted has been brought before the public notice on more than one occa sion, and has also created considerable discussion in higher courts. Some alteration undoubtedly requires to be made concerning legal practitioners unnecessarily taking up a large portion of the time devoted to the hearing of cases at the Court. Are the presiding Magistrates empowered to compel learned gentlemen to confine them selves to the facts of a case, and com ment upon those facts alone ? If they have that power, why is it not enforced ? Are they intimidated by the bouncing eloquence of a lawyer, who evidently intends if possible to frighten the Bench into a decision on his behalf, whether they may consider themselves justified in doing* so or not. Some professional gentlemen even go so far as to insult the Bench by in sinuating that they arrive at a decision before they have heard any conclusive ...

KAPUNDA. (FBOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) September 8. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 September 1869

KAPUNDA. (FBOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) September 8. The first of a series of sixpenny readings was given in Crase's large room on Friday last. The entertainment, which was for the benefit of the Institute, was well attended. On Friday last a man named William Fuller, about sixty years of age, was found in a helpless state on the road near Moppa; he was conveyed into town, but died before reaching there. The cause of his death was want and exposure. On Saturday several boys were amusing themselves by throwing stones down an old shaft about 30 ft. deep, when one of them fell in. When rescued by some neighbors from his perilous position, he was found to be only slightly bruised. L&Bt night a young woman on her way to the Burra fell from a waggon and received a frac ture of one of her legs, through its coming in contact with one of the wheels. She was conveyed to the Adelaide Hospital by the first train this morning.

A VOICE FROM THE RING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 September 1869

A VOICE EROM THE RING. It seems the fashion, Mr. Tomahawk, to a|)use the professional betting man as being: the wain cause of the corrup tion of il the turf" as- an institution, and of the great abuses that have gradually grown up around horse racing. I don't mean to say but what many of us ring men are sharp fellows, and take an advantage when we can. 11 don't mean to say but what there i aren't some black slieep, or may be black-legs, among us; but what I j means to say, and to stick to, is as the j noblemen and gentlemen what are on 1 the turf is no better, if they aren't worse, than we are; and as people might abuse us less, for many of us try to get our living honestly, though we do get it by calculation and specula tion, which the gentlemen of. the Stock-Exchange may call gambling if they please. If you'll excuse me, I'll take myself as an example, because I know more about myself than I do of any one else. I began life with a-ont a hundred pounds. I never went beyond my capit...

Dreams will bring back the days we passed in - boyhood's happy hour, O'er mountain, valley, hill, and dale, ne'er thinking ought of ill; Or picture thee-the elder one-as thou with manly power, Would'st thrash the boys that worried me, at " Harrow on the Hill." No tidings for this many a year have reached bur mutual home, Of where, on broad Australia's hand, thy destiny is cast; O'er father and o'er mother, dear, has closed the dreary tomb, Since on the shore of England's coaBt I parted, from thee last. Did friends prove freaeh'roue to thy youth - when Thou first earnest here, Or strangers vantage o'er thee take to bleed thy liberal heart; And then, ashamed of being poor, didst fl...

STRANGWAY'S LAND BILL. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 September 1869

STRAN©WAY'S LAND BILL. (To the Edifcar of the UOJITHERN AB&US.) Sib-When* the combined wisdom of oar Legislature hatched JOUP Land TBill--trammelled with so many arbitrary restrictions-public opinion pronounced it a failure, and so far their prophetic opinion baa been realised. - The farmers in this cblony aupesr the most unfor tunate iclass of the genus Homo. Not sufficient! that his crops are precarious from takeall, red j rust, and other pests, he is regarded by such men as the Attorney-General as a good milch cow to be well milked by those in office. The late debate on the land bill proved indisputably that the machinery of the Act did not work according to the Attorney-Generai's expecta tion-the strings were too tight and requited to be relaxed before it could be brought into play-and the extreme knowledge evinced by the members of the Ministry on faimirg pur suits rnuet have startled that interest on the profound knowledge and wisdom dispisyed by gentlemen who never ha...

THE NORTHERN ARGUS. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 September 1869

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,1869. No more fitting1 time than the present could be found for bringing the subject of the Wallaroo and Clare Railway, prominently before the Government and the public generally, and if the inhabitants of this district would only co-operate with their Peninsula neigh bors in the matter, an amount of un answerable pressure would be brought to bear upon those whose duty it is to provide proper means of locomotion for the produce of the district. Most probably when the question is brought * immediately under the notice of our legislators, the opponents of the scheme } will allude with some truth to the I apathy evinced by the people of Clare and its neighborhood, and insinuate that were the project one of necessity to our advancement, more, anxiety would be shown in the matter. What, we would ask, are our leading men :abo]at? Have tbeylost all interest in the district, or are they opposed to the scheme? If the latter be the case, then let them boldly give their re...

WATERYA&E. St-pf ember 16; I have little to record from this neighbor hood, except that, like most other fcouth Aus tralians, we are anxiously looking out for rain. The crops are beginning to die cff almoBt before they hare covered the grourid, and the grtss is looking very parched and ^withered ; aud I am told that things are looking infinitely worse on the Plums.

The Foresters' Hall is going up ve y fas*, Mr. Shepherd having a number of men employed, and Z euppose he will have the stonework all up in leas than a fortnight. The metal of the main street has received a heavy coat of blinding, which will only be a nuisance, as in this dry weather it does not bind, bui turns to dust; half a day's rolling would have done much more good, and would have saved many a poor beast the unmerciful floggings we frequently see given when tbey are real...
