WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 October 1869

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) September 30. The Adelaide papers hare daring the last few days given rather amusing accounts of a peripatetic vendor of " cheap cloth for clergy men,'1 who stated tbat his goods came "from his father's manufactory in Spainbut I fancy this gentleman is not particular as to whether his customers are clerical or lay, and tbat be kas already visited Watervale with another yarn. A person stayed a night at the Prince of Wales Hotel a short time since, who stated that he was a traveller for a Melbourne bouse, but that he found business so dull be did not care to take orders, but was selling off his samples. Some of our townsfolk, I blush to relate, were ready enough to believe this plausible tale, and bought magnificent pieces of cloth (in appearance) at ridiculously low prices, and, I need hardly add, boasted considerably of their good luck, when one wiser in hie generation, forgetting the old proverb "Where ignorance is bliss," &e., quick...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 October 1869

THE GOLDFIELDS. The B trossa correspondent of the " Register*' writes as follows:-"The new crushing ma chinrry will be fixed and commence operations m six weeks. Tfte site selected combines every advantage that could be wished-abundance of water, wood for fuel, and is easy of aeee^?. It is between 200 and 300 yards eatt of Britch r'e machine, just at the junction of Yatta Creek and Green Gully. Mr. Boyle, of Gresbam Chambc rs, Adelaide, is about to erect a crut-hit g machine on the open pa>t of the Yeta, about a quartrr f f, a mile above the bridge, 'lhere is abundance of water at this spot, but the same facilities do not exist for the erection of dams, which wil necessarily be much uiore exj ensive. Thus it will be seen that we can indulge the hope of having ore grrat obstacle to the develop ment of this goldfield removed shortly.

ORIGINAL POETRY. SOMETHING SEASONABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 1 October 1869

ORIGINAL POETRY. SOMETHING SEASONABLE. Oh, rain ! thou gracious gift from H aven's hand, Thou hold'st thy bounteous showers from our land; Man hopes and fears, expects and sighs, with pain, For crops and flocks, and pastures, all in vain- Thou comest not. He sees his ruin near, And trembles, quakes, and prays through very fear. But does he not, too, think stern Heaven's eye Beholds the scene-the sickening wheat turn dry The pasture fade, the flowers droop and die- And yet his rains our arid earth deny ? Does he e'er think that times like these may come To warn him that he's trav'ling to the tomb,   Beyonds whose limits lies the Judgment Seat Of Him whose love, tho' boundless, still has wrath as great; Who heard Gomorrah's cries and wailings loud, Yet still the fiery hail poured on the crowd ? Ought it not, in our hearts, produce the thought That here mankind their woes have truly bought; That wrong, deceit, filching the widow's mite, Drink, av'rice, craft, and deeds whi...

ECONOMICAL HORSE FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 October 1869

ECONOMICAL HORSE FEEDING. There are two ways of doing this. 1st. The idle and wasteful way, which is to feed with rack-meat and un crushed corn; when the hay is pulled from the rack, its choice parts sorted out, eaten, and the remainder soon finds ifcs*way under the animal's heels and becomes litter. The corn is. hun grily seized, the horse's head is turned round occasionally, and half of the feed is spilt on the floor of the stall. This is the dear and nasty way, 2nd. The best method is to give no rack-meat whatever (except it he green fodder, [ and of that seldom). The fodder which is bought ready cut should be well scrutinised, to ascertain whether it contains a due proportion of the nutri tious grasses, and that it be free from dirt and dust. Like men, horses differ in their appetites. When this is studied and correctly ascertained, a larger or smaller sized seive-full of cut meat should first be thrown into the manger and well wetted, to which add the usual allowance of crushed...

THE GOLDITELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 October 1869

THE GOLDITELDS. The Barossa correspondent of»the Gawler Times, writing on the 30th ultimo, saye: .' The splendid showers of last week, so welcome and beneficial to the wbole country, have but slightly benefitted these diggings, being scarcely heavy enongh to replenish the dams, the one at the crusher being most in need of a fresh supply; yet, as the rain does not appear to be all gone, there is still hope of a further falL Almost all the washdirt of this locality having to .be crushed, the want of water has not been felt here very much, eo that the late rain most1 likely will not produce a sudden and apparent improvement in our gold returns, as its direct benefit extends only to some few alluvial parties and puddlers in the gullies. Of the several new rushes lately mentioned by me, the one at the head of Spike Gully proves to be tfce best. Several shafts have been bottomed on the run with good prospects, and the country has been taken vtp ahead of the last golden claim to a consider...

LAYING THE FOUNDATION-STONE OF THE MANOORA CATHOLIC CHAPEL SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 October 1869

LAYING THE FOUNDATION -STONE OF THE MANOORA CATHOLIC CHAPEL SCHOOL. This interesting ceremony took place on Sunday, 26th ultimo, under the most favorable circumstances. The Very Rev. Vicar-General, whose name is connected with almost every Catholic church or school in South Australia, left Sevenhills College about 7 a.m., and arrived on the spot some time before noon, in company with the Very Rev. Jos. Tappeiner. A great number of persons from far and near were already anxiously waiting for his arrival. A temporary altar had been erected inside the walls, already ten feet high, with the exception of the part where the stone was to be placed. The Mintaro choir, under the able direction of Dr. Vogt, was in readiness, and High Mass commenced at once by the Rev. .A. Sehrell, S.J. Webb's Mass in D minor was executed in excellent style (although the choir labored | under many disadvantages), and added very I much to the solemnity of the ceremony, | Mass being finished, the usual ceremony ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES ON THE DEATH OP A SHEP HERD, MURDERED BY THE BLACKS AT MOUNT JTYTTON, 1865. Eve hung on Fytton's rugged height, And Sun his beams of mellow light* On leaving earth to gloomy night, Shed lustrously aroundj And painted mountain tops with gold, Throwing their length'ning shadows bold O'er knotty plain, and Shepherd's fold On .lonely spot of ground. A flock was winding slowly home; Behind them soon would Shepherd come, Knowing but little of the doom That waited for him there. In ambush hid, a barbarous crew In deep Tarralla's Creek, who threw Upon him glance so deadly true Of Savages' grim ire. He comes, and near a atony rise; The scene opes on his wond'ring eyes, And fills his heart with dark surprise Of murderous intent. What does the slinking Savage there t What means that well-poised deadly spear? Why round his tent some keep so near, If not on evil bent ? The thought passed thro* his fever'd head, He'd left his gun upon his bed, And quick with falt'ring steps...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 October 1869

m[tlt^w glrps. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1869. SOME time since a memorial from sixty-six landowners and farmers in the Hundreds of Hall and Blyth was presented to his Excellency the Go vernor, praying that they might be allowed to avail themselves of the provisions of the District Councils Act. The memorialists urged as a, reason that all the available land for agricul tural purposes contained in the hun dreds alluded to is alienated from /the Crown, and nearly all occupied and fenced in, which latter circumstance has been the means of closing the old tracks., thereby fixing- in their proper position the new roads, which in many places are almost impassable for want of sundry repairs. It was also pointed out that the main road from the terminus of the Port Wakefield and Hoyle's Plains Railway in the Hundred of Hall would have to be bridged across several deep creeks. As a further reason for granting the request, it was stated that the memorialists were anxious to repair their own roads, lo...
