The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 29 October 1869
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 129,18C9. THE English mail again arrived before it was due, but not this time, as on other occasions, before it was expected. The Alexandra was sighted off Glenelg shortly after o a.m. on Sunday last. The news does not appear to have caused any great sensation in the colony, although our squatters will no doubt appreciate the rise in wool. The great boat race between the English and American crews on the 27th of August caused great excite ment ; but our cousins on the conti nent were no match for the Oxford men. There were about 750,000 people gathered together to witness the affair, several thousands being from America. The Yankees appear to have anticipated victoiT, and made preparations ac cordingly ; but they were doomed to disappointment, for althougli the Har vard crew pulled gallantly and kept! the lead for upwards of two miles, their opponents won easihr by four lengths. There have been some strangle and almost incredible disclosures made by Mrs. Harriett Bee...

The [?] Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
gjmjtlmit grps. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1869. THE annual report of the South Aus tralian Institute for 1868-9 was pre sented at the meeting held on the 11th ult. It was on the whole very favorable, and the Board of Governors expressed themselves thoroughly satisfied with the progress made during the past year. It is to be regretted, however, that they have not the facilities for adding any additional accommodation for the exhibition of specimens, a variety of which they have on hand. The directors have done their utmost in endeavoring to add to the present building; but so Jar their efforts have been fruitless. The Committe, in their report, express deep .regret at the death of the Very Rev. Dean Farrell, who was oiie of the three governors appointed by Sir R. G. McDonnell in 1856 to carry out the objects of the Institute £ct, then recently passed. By his decease the Board have sus tained a severe loss, as he was a very energetic member. The various classes in opera-1 tion have been con...

MINTARO, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 3. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
MINTARO, (FK03I OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 3. It is with much regret that I have to men tion the sudden decease of the late Mrs. Patrick O'Neill, who died through severe illness after confinement. Her remain?, together with that of the infant, were interred in one coffin, in the Catholic Cemetery. (The funeral ar rangements were under the superintendence of Mr. W. J. Threadgold, of Auburn.) The hearse was followed hy a procession of about 150 people. All the business places were closed while the cortege was passing through the town. The family have been living near here about six years, and are greatly respected. The deceased has left a husband, and three young children to mourn their severe loss. Hay harvest has now become general, and. I am told the average yield will be from 12 to 14 cwt. per acre.
NEWS AND NOTES. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
NEWS AND NOTES. BY AN A DETAIDE MAN. Wednesday -Evening. The municipal campaign has commenced. The first gun was fired at the Prince of Wales Hotel on Monday evening last, when a great crowd of the Grey Ward electors assembled to "express their views." Councillor Wright occupied the chair. After some stray shots had been discharged at the convener of the meeting, who thought proper to keep in the dark, Mr. J. Jones proposed the first resolution -" That a committee be appointed to confer with committees from other wards, for the purpose of procuring the services of a suitable gentleman to serve as Mayor of the city of Adelaide for the eneuing year." He considered. , it would be a disgrace to the city if a man could not be found to succeed Mr. Fuller, who had served for three years. During that Hir>« very little work had been carried out in the city; an official, however, had swindled them out of £4,000, which was probably considered by some persons equivalent to any shortcomings i...

AUBUBN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
AUBUBN. (FROM OUB OWX CORBESPONDENT.) November 4. The inhabitants of Auburn have been greatly shocked at the sad intelligence of the sudden decease of the late Yen. Archdeacon Twopeny, who it appears died of heart disease. He was riding in the neighborhood of Hoyk's Plains, in company with his [Excellency Sip James iFerguesoD, to whom he had several times com plained of pain in the heart, and had Blackened hia pace in consequence. While pulling the horse into a walk, he suddenly fell and imme diately expired. Sir James tried to bleed him, but found that life was extinct. Dr. Walls, of Auburn, was promptly sent lor, who considered an in quest on the body unnecessary, as he was satisfied death waa caused by disease of the heart, from which deceased had long suffered. The Archdeacon was a favorite with all who knew him, and a devoted Christian minister. The Governor paid every attention in conveying the corpse to Riverton, and in person cotnmuni eated the sad event to the widow, and or...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
THE GOLDFrELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Gawler Times writes:-" Some of the claims on Vic toria Hill have been worked out; but the majority are still piling their washdirt, the owners crushing only as much as they require to pay their way. Yet the crushing machinery has as much to do as it can manage, and the only apparent difference is that the large heaps of cement a short time ago lying around the machinery are now to be seen on the respective claims. The Kapunda lead, as it is termed, on the north side of Victoria Hill and at the back of Victoria Township, has received fresh atten tion daring the week. The fact that the Kapunda Company are raising cement from three shafts on this lead, and that a few other claims are getting payable cement, has caused this stir. The run being, I believe, only 15 ft. wide, is necessarily difficult to bs struck by sinking; but it will in all probablity be traced yet for eome distance, as the cement bills appear to extend on that side into ...
WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) NOVEMBER 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
WATERVALE. (FROM: OUR OWN CORREBPOKDENT ) NOVEMBER 4. Tbe Building Ccmnsittte of the Foresters' Hall have accepted tbe tender of a Kapunda trade-rnan for the plastering and moulding. There was one local tender, some twenty-seYm pounds over this; but though the Committee were willing to keep the money in the diet ie if possible, ttoey c-euld not of course spend so inuch extra of what may almost be calk d public money for the sake cf doing it. It is a pity tbe locals cannot keep rather nearer tbe mark. I am informed tenders for tbe benches and in ternal fittings generally will be called lor imme diately; also, that the Committee are iu treaty for tbe purchase of a piano. The Hall is ex pected to be opened early in December, when a variety of attractions will probably be produced. X hear great complaints of the number of Scotch thistles flourishing in seme parts of tbe district. Surely every person having them on bis land or the adjoining roads would be con ferring a benefit on himself...
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE EXILE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 5 November 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE EXILE. 'IWAS on a lovely summer's eve, the gorgeous | sun fast sinking Behind a lofty range of hills upon Australia's ? plain; " Fair daylight swiftly from the earth was shrinking, " 1 And the pale moon would soon commence her j reign; A lonely wanderer, illy clad, was toiling on his « .w.ay' Straining his eager eyes around to seek some friendly cot; For stranger he on this wide plain, and mid declining day, Where a shelter for the night to seek for now knew not. IDs limbs were tired, his tongue was parched, and hunger craved within, he!ping hand was near him now, no aid of human kind, Nought saw he in the dark'ning gloom e'en to the honzon's line But here and there a straggling herd and the winding track behind. He paused and pondered o'er his lot, his heart beat wild and strong, Far flew his thoughts to a distant spot, held in irons by mem'ry long. How swift sweet memory off doth guide The lonely SGUI upon her eilv'ry tide Back to the days of childhood's spotl...
