KAPUNDA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) October 14. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
KAPUOTA. (FBOJI OTTB OWN COBBESPOXDENT ) October 14. We bare had some splendid rains lately, the best that have fallen for the year, which have given the crops a healthy appearance. On Thursday last a very sad accident hap pened to one of the engin.-drivers at the mine. It appears that one of the bolts of the steam pipe was loose, and the man went to screw it up, when the belt broke and the steam blew the cap off, scalding him very badly in the face, one of bis eyes being severely injured. On Friday evening a very excellent lecture cn u Gambling" was delivered by the Bev. Mr. Day, Baptist Minister. The lecturer spoke at considerable length on the evil results arising from the practice, and warned ycunj men to ebun the skittle-alley and the card table. On Sunday the anniversary of the Bible Christian Chapel took place. Sermons were preached in the morning by Mr. J. Btneett, Wesleyan local preacher, and in the afternoon and evening by the Rev. J.

Little else has been thought of bj a large proportion of those who take an interest in or are residents on these diggings. It is the almost universal opinion that, consi dering the decidedly unfavorable weather iii the earlier part of the day, the event was a decided pjicccBs. There is little doubt that had we been t*UAJUC09* A 11P1P 19 llkUC UUUUl UiD^ xiau tt v ucou favored with such weather as that of yesterday even the large gathering would have been still more numerous.

FAR NORTH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) Strangway's Springs, October 1. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 15 October 1869
FAR NORTH. (FKOM OTJB OWN COBRESPOUDEKT ) Strangwaj'E Springe, October 1. There is not much news of importance for me to impart on this occasion, the principal topic being the weather, which has of late been vers hot and sultry ; but on the 27th ult. there vera indications of a change. Heavy clouds were discernible in the north-west moving rapidly up overhead, while the distant roll of thunder was distinctly heard, and flashes of lightning seen; a heavy storm was anticipated. Expectation, however were blighted, as the quantity of rain that fell was only sufficient to lay the dust. But on the following morning a steady rain set in and continued for four hours, knd a heavy ehower fell to-day. There has not been sufficient rain to make the creeks run after all, but the grass is springing rapidly. Strict attention is being paid to the motto, *' Time is money," and shearing is being pushed rapidly forward, and after the wool is taken off the sheep's back it undergoes the process of washi...

The state of the case was this:-Mr. Wallace, learning that it was no use coming to the colony to offer to construct this line under Act 22 of 1867 without credentials, placed himself in communication with the Agent-General, who was quite satisfied with the bona fides of...

NEW PLAN FOR PRESERVING MEAT AND FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 October 1869
NEW PLAN FOR PRESERVING MEAT AND FISH. In these columns on the 8th of May ast we drew the attention of our readers to the extraordinary results which are hoped for from the experi ments of refrigeration by the means of methylic ether. Without any other process than the simple reduction of the temperature (though not to freezing joint, which would injure the quality of the meat) we are assured that food in any quantity can be thus preserved fresh and good for long periods. M. Tellier, of Paris, in a letter to the Society of Arts in London, states that, commencing his experiments in the previous August, he thus preserved by cold alone during nine weeks fresh beef and mutton; during six weeks game with entrails undrawn; during three and five weeks fish not cleaned. And he says that the experiments might have been carried still further, as there was then no deterioration of the animal matter. By this process, which is de scribed as cheap and effectual, and free from danger, the hold of ...

The Hnthern Augus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 October 1869
ibhc mtlup grps. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22,1869. SOME few weeks back this colony was in a perpetual state of alarm owing* to the prevailing dry weather, and serious forebodings were circulated in the yarious districts respecting1 the coming, harvest. It wa$ anticipated that there would not be sufficient grain in South Australia to sustain half its inhabitan ts, and a few inspired individuals predicted a total desertion of the colony. The fears of the colonists have, however, somewhat abated by the late refreshing rains, which have been general throughout the country, and although it arrived rather late for the wheat crops, it has been very beneficial to them, and the danger of starving, or living on "potted mutton" from the meat-preserving establishments, is no longer feared. Certainly some of the crops are in a very backward condition in various districts, more especially the hay, which is in most parts very short and light, and there is every proba bility of its realising a good price ne...

NEWS AND NOTES. Br AN ADELAIDE MAN. Wednesday Evening. On Friday last a special meeting of the Ghamber of Manufactures was held in the Town Halt to discuss the advisability of peti tioning Pariianent to extend tbe free list of the tariff, with a view to assist local manufac tures. The Hon. J. Alor^hett occupied the chfcir. The Hon. X. Remolds said tie thought it was a very suitable subject for the Chamber to take up, and mmbers tiad n >w an opportu nity of seating what articles ihey considered should be placed on fie free list. Mr. S. Davenport said he wished to dispel a prevalent impression that the Chamber of Manufactures was a political body-their principles were not based on politics. By looking at the tariff they j would ste articles which might be admitted more free tl«a«i they were, or even altogether free, because they could manufacture them at less ca*t for their own consumption than the; could import them for. By having the raw material uuty free they could employ labor...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 22 October 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The BaroEsa correspondent of the Evening Journal thus write?:-"The application of the miner's right to the wh- le of the proclaimed goldfields of the cclony is a step in the right direction, and cannot fail to give satisfaction to the digging population. At the same ti*we it is to be regretted that it was not tnsde available for the whole of the Crown lands, and thus have given direct encouragement to prospecting, in which case all reasonable objections would have been removed; for v* ith this concession, very few I should imagine would have cavilled at the pricey especially if (as many maintain it should) the license were available from date to date. Between 30 and 40 miners' rights were taken out last week, many of the old licences having lapsed. There is very little ch»nge to report in the general aspect of the digging* during the week. Unless some discovery of importance takes place things are likely to remain rather dull till the advent of the expected machinery...
