THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The BaroBsa correspondent of the Evening Journal writes:-" Our population is rather on the decrease just now, as many farmers are obliged to leave for the hay harvest, though in most cases, I believe, with the intention of returning. Xt is generally believed that there is more gold being obtained now than ever, the good supply of water partly accounting for it. There is little doubt that a great stride will be made in gold production with the advent of more efficient machinery j in fact, many are storing, up their cement till that time. Two good crushings have been reported lately; five tons of cement from Goddard's Hill yielded nearly 3 ozs. per ton, and nine tonB from Vie toria Hill over 3 ozs.. I observe that some of the abandoned claims in the deep ground near Victoria township are being taken up. Parties sometimes abandon claims before they are worked - out. An elderly man during the past week ^ obtained between seven and eight pennyweights of gold from a claim ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. VOX E DESERTO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY. VOX E DESERTO. THERE'S a voice in the valley enshrouded by night; There's a voice on the hill-top at noonday BO bright; There's a voice in the eve o'er the far stretching plain; There's a voice in the morning again and again; There's a cry on the mountain, a wail in the dell, A moan from the murky, dark prisoner's cell; A laugh, at once frantic with hideous delight, Issues forth from the madman amid the still night; A hewl from the destitute greets the fair morn, Erom many a poor wife left alone and forlorn ; Among the cold grave-stones a groan ever hangs, . And the wretch on the gallows, while his fettering clangs, Bemoans the same fate that's placed him in Death's fangs. What is it that thus thro' Australia reeounds, All goodness, all virtue, all comfort confounds ? What robs from the widow her hardly-earned mite, And turns to black sorrow the husband's delight ? What filches the crust from the poor hungry boy, And leaves him no comforts of home to enjoy ? What eg...
GENERAL SUMMARY. London, September 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
GENERAL SUMMARY. London, September 10- I The Queen is visiting the Trossachs, and is in remarkably good health. The Prince of Wales has been visiting the Queen in Scotland. Mr. Gladstone and his family have been visiting Walmer, and are now gone to Whitby. The circular of the Colonial Committee in London has attracted great notice from the Frees, and is said by the Times to " mark an epoch." It is felt on all sides that a great question has arisen-one on the solution of which the future of the Empire of England largely depends. The Biehops of Westminster and of Bath and Wells have resigned. Dr. Wilberforce is mentioned as likely to be promoted to the former see, to be succeeded at Oxford by Dean Stanley. The Bishop of Lichfield is very unwell. The Albert Insurance Company has become insolvent. Its liabilities are enormous. Meetings of policy-holders are being held all through England. They will lose a great deal. It will require more than a million sterling to set it right. The comp...

OPENING OF THE BLYTH PLAINS SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
OPENING OF THE BLYTH PLAINS SCHOOL, The want of a proper place for the edueafion of the young in the above locality has iong : been felt, and as the necessity became more I apparent by the increasing population, a few ladies and gentkinpn " to k the buil by the horns" and went round the immediate neighborhood to solicit the assistance of the farmers for so deeirable an object. The call wa&lt;s responded to most liberally, cont-i ering the dullness of the times ; and the promoter.-1, finding there was perfect unanimity among the residents, and that they would be assisted in their endeavors to supply the necessity, imme diately «et to work. A piece of land was pre sented by Mr. Shepherd for the purpose, and a school ol moderate size was soon commenced, the builder being Mr. Nettle. The originators of the affair continued their exertions by soli citing subscriptions wherever there was the remotest chance of obtaining half-a- crown, until the sum of £52 2s 6d was raised.

NEWS AND NOTES. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
NEWS AND NOTES. BR AN ADELAIDE MAN. Wednesday Evening. The Hunt Club Races took place atThebarton on Saturday last, as a sort of wind-up to the season. The day was fine and a goodly number of pleasure-seekers collected on the ground, but the stench from the boiiing-down establishment and other local nuisances spoiled the effect most awfully. The Maiden Steeplechase was won by Mr. Launcelot, beating three others, including the notorious Jolly Dog, whose rider, Mr. Ebenezer Ward, emulated Mark Tapley in endeavoring to look jolly under adverse cir cumstances ; the Dog, however, somewhat re trieved his tarnished reputation by afterwards winning the Hurdle Bace. Mr. Jackson's Duke of Wellington won the Flat Bace, and Mr. Harvey % Ada the Hurry Scurry. The settling took place on Monday evening at the Globe Hotel, after which an attempt was made to form a new Jockey Club; the company, however, separated without making any head way in the matter. Talking of racing puts me in mind of the Mel...
FAR NORTH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) Strangway's Springs, October 20. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
FAR NORTH. (FBOM OUR OWJI COEEESPONDENT ) Strangway's Springe, October 20. The lakes in this neighborhood, which were filled by the heavy rains in March last, are fast dning up, and when they get low they turn quite gait. 1 hey I ave been a great boon to the squatter, BO far as they have afforded suffi cient water for the sheep, and there is also an abundance of feed in the vicinity, which makes the land more valuable than where permanent water exists; for owing to the salt nature ol the soil at the latter place, herbage does not arrive to the perfection it does in the neighbor hood of the lakes. The weather has been extremely boisterous and windy lately, and as far as the eye could discern nothing but dust was visible, and I am rathe? dubious whether the grass which the late rains have caused to spring up will grow to any height, as the prevailing warm weather will stop its progress. However, should a sufficient supply of rain fall to saturate the earth thoroughly, it would flouris...

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
WATERVALE. (FBOM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 28. The"Foresters' Hall is progressing very fast; the masons have completed their work and the roof is on. I suppose we may look forward to seeing it formally opened next month or early in December. The crops in this neighborhood are looking very healthy, and though Bome few are so short and thin as to be almost worthless, there will probably on the whole be a favorable yield, as I hear nothing of red rust, &c., at present.
