KAPUNDA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) September 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 September 1869
KAPUNDA. (FBOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) September 22. We were visited on Saturday and Sunday with some very refreshing showers, which have somewhat revived the wheat in the neighbor hood^ Considerable anxiety was entertained in respect to the coming harvest, as nearly all the crops were withering; but the rain has put the farmers in good heart. To-day having been set apart for thanks giving, nearly all the shops were closed, and it made the town assume a sabbatical appearance. The Ghas Company has nearly finished laying down the pipes, and it is expected that in about three weeks some of the shops and places of worship will be lighted up. Business is very dull. GOD BLESS THE DUKE OE Abo^tm. !--Among the telegrams published in the papers lately we find one from the North, to the effect that" the Laird was scratched at 10.15" on that morning, and consequently did not come to the post. To which member of the Scottish nobility does this interesting fact refer? The following conversation ...
ORIGINAL POETRY. ON A BURIAL AT BUNGAREE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 September 1869
^ ORIGINAL POETRY, ON A BURIAL AT BTJISGAB-EE. BY EDWABD ALLEN. Only a day returned from fat*, Chance led me past the ground That's set aside for funeral rites ; On church's sacred mound. The morn was heavy, dark, and di ear, And misty clouds were hovering low,\ And church's spire was hid from view, By thiek'ning vapors rising slow. A lonely workman plied his pick, With heavy blows on graveyard's soil, In fashioning out the gloomy home Of one who'd finished earthly toil. I stopped, enquiring who had gone Beyond earth's furthest limit's end, And from his l;ps in answer fell The name of one who'd been my friend. The time-made sexton stayed his work, And told me how the dead had died j The widow and her nestling brood, How bitterly they mourned and cried. How long In painful sickness he Faithful to duty clung so feet, Watching with care Mb fleecy flock, E'en to the day he watched them last. And then of how he ling'ring lay, In humble cot upon the hill; And how at length he passed away ...
WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) September 23. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 September 1869
WATERVALE. (FROM: OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) September 23. The way some of our townsfolk bare been treated by the Committee of the late Trades man's Ball in Clare is, to say the leaet of it, new in the annals of etiquette. I give the story as told me by the parties concerned. Some time ago two gentlemen-one of them stating he was hon. see. to the Ball Committee-came to Watervale. and sold a ticket to admit one gentleman and two ladies to the ball, which was presented by the purchaser to her son (a married man). On receiving a letter from the Committee asking who would make use of the ticket, this gentleman wrote stating that as his wife was not well enough to go, his youngest sister only would arail herself of it accompanied by himself, This produced an answer from the Committee to the effect that the young lady would not be admitted if she went. The parties then demanded an explanation and the return of the money; the latter was sent, but not the former. Now, this is an unmanly insult...

CLARE AMATEUR DRAMATIC SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 September 1869
CLARE AMATEUR DRAMATIC SOCIETY. The houses which last week honored the fifth teries of performances of the Clare Amateur Dramatic Society were very unlike those nume rous assemblies we have been accustomed to see at previous entertainments ; and, no doubt, there were several reasons to account for the paucity of attendance. First and foremost, the dull times and unfavorable prospects of the season disheartened a great many, while the withdrawal from the club of two or three of its best members deterred others. The perform ances, however, were something to excite more than ordinary interest, even under the most common circumstances. Sir Bulwer Lytton's comedy of " Money" is one which the most indifferent company could not murder, and which average acting may make enjoyable. The cast on Thursday and Friday evenings had several strong points, and no positely bad ones. Mr. Jarman portrayed Evelyn in his own fashion, which, if not the purest style of comedy, is something not far off. He ...

SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 October 1869
SUMMARY OF fcEWS. The Irish Church Bill has passed, and received the Royal assent on the 26th July The Lords at first refused to endorse the Com mon^ ' amendments, and threw that on the preamble out by a tremendous majority. The gravity of the situation then became apparent, and Lord Cairns and Lord Grranville met and announced that the Commons1 amendment should be adopted. This was done on the 22ud July, and on the 23rd the Bill finally left the Commons without a division, everjbjdy being in good humor. The Irish Bishops have met, and it is deter* mined to call a Sjncd composed of clergy and laity equally, to fix the future constitution of the Free Church. The English Bishops have made themselves very unpopular by the part they have taken in the Irish Church question, and a motion for their expulsion from the House of Lords was to have been brought before the Commons, but was defeated by time. The Queen is going to Balmoral, where Mr. Bright has been invited to spend a few days. Th...
