AUBURN. (FBOM OITB OWN COBBESPONDENT.) September 30.

WIRE TRAMWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 8 October 1869
WIRE TRAMWAYS. "A railway without cutting-s, em bankments, tunnels, viaducts, or bridges, no matter liow hilly the country to be traversed"-such is the definition given by Herapath's Journal of an invention now in use in Leices tershire, and a working model of which may be seen in Gresham street, B.C. The wire tramway provides a simple and cheap substitute for a line of rails, and is of great service where, from the scarcity or intermittent character of the traffic, or the engineering diffi culties of the ground to be got oyer, it is either not expedient or impossible to go through the expensive progress of fciming a local railway. For the wire spans over and evades obstacles in place of burrowing* under or levelling them, and will perform its task as easily along' a rugged tract of country as on the smoothest road. The expp,ri j ment being now prosecuted with com plete success between some Leicester shize stone (Quarries and a railway j station three miles distant consists of an en...

ORIGINAL POETRY, A DREAM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY; A DREAM OB' YOUTH. My own sweet love was sleeping 'neath a gum tree's pleasant shade, Her lightstraw bat upon tire ground from off her head had strayed; Her nut-brown hair, in wavy curls, hung loosely o'er her breaBt, And shrouded with its silky folds the beating heart in rest; The breezes softly swept her cheek, and blushed it like the rose, Sibling the crimson of her lips, which sighed in sweet repose; One rounded arm laid o'er her side, white as the driven snow, The other, folded nestling round, formed pillow soft and low; And shadows of the rustling leaves were flitting o'er her brow, fshe slept the sleep that angels give to those wbo're free from guile, And dreamt she must of pleasant thing?, for soon there spread a smile, Which, had it in her waking hours upon a judge been aimed, Would far beyond a lawyer's art have innocence proclaimed. But while my love thus sweetly laid in raptu rous repose, Three serpents gliding on the sward their venomed heads uprose; Se...
CLEAN SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
CLEAN SHEARING-. M An Old Shearer" writes to the " Bathurst Free Press" as follows :-I am an old shearer of upwards of 20 years' experience, and having shorn sheep, more or less, every year daring that time, and I can now shear 50 full-fleeced sheep as they ought to be shorn, therefore con sider myself to he in a position to be able to give young shearers some' ueeful advice about the great advantages of clean shearing-first to the employer and next to the employed. I nave invariably noticed throughout the country that good shearers were sought after, and taken notice of by their employers, and amply re warded for clean shearing. My uniform method of shearing is to clip the brisket first, then to. shear the belly, then open the neck, and so on, taking narrow blows, not an inch wide, round the backbone all the way down. ThiB mtthod. of shearing keeps the fleece from breaking, and the sheep looks better when shorn, because, going down the last side you can fall on your old blow?. I tr...
TRIAL TRIPS OF THE NEW AERIAL MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
TRIAL TRIPS OF THE NEW AERIAL MACHINE. An " aerial steam-carriage," or air ship, has been constructed in San Francisco by a Mr. Frederick Marriott, j who is said to have been eno-aged for' 18 years in the study of aerial naviga- j tion. The machine and its trial trips j are described as follows by the San Franciscan Times of the oth July: The carriage, which is merely a large working model, is a balloon shaped like a cigar, both ends coming* to a point. It is 37 feet long, 11 feet from top to bottom, and 8 feet iu width. These are the measurements at the centre of the balloon, from which point it gradually tapers off towards either end. Around the balloon, lengthwise, and a little below the centre, is a liglit framework of wood and cane, strongly wired together and braced. ' Attached to this frame, and standing- up as they approach the front of the carriage, are two wings, one on either side. They are each five feet wide at a little back of the centre carriage, and do not commence t...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1869. A discussion took place in the House of Assembly tlie other day respecting Mr. Bri gilt's motion that the Corpora tion of Clare was entitled to £460 out of the grant in aid to Corporations and District Councils, on account of the rate of two shillings in the pound levied in May last. He explained to the House that there was no limitation of the amount to he supplemented in the estimates, and the Corporation of Clare had been led into the belief that by taking the estimates for 1869 as a guide they were perfectly justified in passing a two shilling rate. This as a matter of course was objected toby the Government. And why should they object to a just and reasonable claim ? The treasury is at present rather empty through the extravagance of our rulers in erecting costly buildings for the adornment of the city, &c., and they consequently seem to imagine that the country districts should make up the deficiency, and opposed Mr. Briglit's motion with a de...

NEWS AND NOTES. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
NEWS AND NOTES. BY AN ADELAIDE MAN. Wednesday -Evening. The revised estimates were submitted to the Assembly oil Thursday last, and show a reduc tion of nearly £55,000. The estimated revenue is £562,850, and the estimated expenditure £542,112, leaving a balance of £20,700 towards meeting the deficiency which has already been laid before the House. The Treasurer said that cot withstanding -what might be said in debate and out cf door?, the Government had had very great responsibility in properly car rying out retrenchment, not simply to meet all classes, bur more especially to give due employ* ment to the laboring men of the colonv, and with this view they stiii put forward the" same amounts for roads and district counei s as pre viously proposed. One large reduction is in the postal service, which is £6.030 below ihe last estimates; in the Telegraph department a saving of £928 had been effected, partly by shutting up some of the outer stations, which were not worth keeping open, as ...
