THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Evening journal, writing ou the 4th instant, asje: .'The oiggings are very quiet just now, and like)j to remain bo for a few weeks at least. I bear very few complaints of want of success j at afcy rate not more than usual; but of course faming and shearing operations have drawn a good number away. This is one of the advan tages of a gold-field, that it is available when other employ ments are slack. At the same time, it is the fettled digger that can alone be depended upon, as a rule, for making fresh dis coveries. This class, too, furnishes the best speculators. Some of the diggers keep eeverel wages men constantly at work, occasionally in prospecting, though it is the general opinion that there is not sufficient encouragement given to this impoitact branch of mining work; con sequently it is followed to a very limited extent. There cannot surely be two opinions that every reasonable inducement should be held out to eDComace this rea...
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE REMORSE OF SYR GRAYTHE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY, THE BEMOBSE OF SYB GRAYTHE. Why wanders Sir Gray the at the dead hoar of night, And fhirere, and mutters, and starts with affright ? Groaning deep, as though Hell had hie heart spring* unbound, Ai d the Fiends a resting-place in him had found ? Moaning low to the winds as he wrings his gaunt hands, And looks furtively round as he shuddering stands MSeath the swift-sweeping clouds and the ghastly-grey moon, How he writhes with the terror, and prays that: a boon, A boon fir^m high Seav'n may be granted him | yet, Tho* his lost soul will roam when his grim corpse is set In the stark stroke of Death; and his blood' etsioed heart Is yielding a feast for the ghouls; that will part Ifiom him nevermore, till the debt he shell pay Un the Day of All-Judgment, that terrible day! Still JSjr Gray the must do penance till the Geath shriek of Time, And atone, aye. for ever, his horrible crime! HENBY Llddle. Adelaide, Nov. 4,1869.

ARTIFICIAL HARVESTING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
ARTIFICIAL HARVESTING. The proverbial uncertainty of the English climate has induced one of the most successful agriculturists to call the attention of the public, in the daily press, to an arrangement for artificial harvesting. The gold medal of the Society of Arts, and a prize of 50 guineas, have been given to the inventor of this aid to the garner. The process employed consists in the use of a fan, which drives air, heated to the temperature of above 300 deg. Fahrenheit, through the grass as it is cut, thus rapidly extracting 60 out of the 75 per cent, of water which it contains, and leaving a sweet dry hay, charged only with its proper quantity of 10 per cent, of moisture. For corn, a perforated cone is made use of, on which the sheaves are impaled, and the heated air rushes out from the centre, carrying the superfluous water away with it. It is stated, on chemical authority, that the hay and corn which are dried by this rapid process, are superior in quality to such as are acte...
ROCHESTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) November 2. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
ROCHESTER. (FBOM OUR OWN COEBESPOSDENT ) November 2. This new township is just beginning to pre sent an agreeable appearance. Tfiere are two or three substantial buildings up, and another (a blacksmith's) in course of erection; and I have no doubt more would be added had we not such a bad prospect of hardest. We have had some splendid rains during the last month, which saved the crops from entire destruction from drought; but while escaping one evil we have to contend with another still more serious. I refer to the grasshoppers, which are ravaging the crops fearfully, and cut down the wheat in such a manner, that I am afraid the farmers will reap but little benefit off the land where they are committing their depredations. The majority of the wheat crops on Bungaree Plains will not average more than six or seven bushels per acre, if so much. ** Red rust has made its appearance further north, but is not very prevalent as yet; the grasshoppers, however, intend to destroy what rust doe...
LADYBIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
LADYBIRDS. Ramsgate, Broadstairs. and the sur rounding1 country, and many parts of Margate, were visited with countless millions of the insects known as lady birds on Friday and Saturday lost. On Sunday morning- the streets and roads in and about Ramsgate and Broadstairs, and the dresses of all persons going into the open air, were covered with them. Opposite the market-place in Ramsgate men were shovelling them down the large grating into the sewer. So thickly were they spread over the ground that the streets seemed covered with red sand. The people coming out of St. George's Church, Ramsgate, at 10 minutes before 1 o'clock on Sun day were covered with the insects before they had proceeded many yards. In the metropolis on Sunday, and particu larly in Westminster, near the Abbey, in Paadington, and in Stratford, vast swarms of these insects were seen, and children were collecting them in their hands and filling paper bags with them. On* Monday and Tuesday the footpaths in Stepney we...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
milium gjups. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12,1869. THE racing* spirit of South Australia appears to be almost effectually ex tinguished through the Adelaide Club becoming defunct. It was usual for i the lovers of the turf in the neighbor hood of Clare to hold their annual meetings on the 9th of November, that day being a public holiday; and the inhabitants looked forward with great pleasure to the coming events-for it is a well-established fact that the Clare races have been only second to those held in the metropolis. This year, however, the usual treat has not been forthcoming; the 9th of November has come and gone, with little or no amusement. The question might reasonably be asked, How is it that the annual meeting has not been held? Surely those who in former years ad vocated and supported them have not 1 become so downcast at the winding-up 1 of the Adelaide club as to withdraw j their assistance. This district is well t able to support a racing club of its own, , fjitirely independent o...
MINTARO. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
&lt; MINTARO. (FROM OUR OW3ST CORRESPONDENT.) November 4. There is nothing of importance transpiring in thiB rather out-of-the-way township at pre sent. The agriculturists in the surrounding district are busily engaged hay-making. On Monday, 1st hist., a temperance meeting, in connection with the Becliabite Test, was held in the Wesleyan Chapel. Mr. John Murdoch presided on the occasion, and several gentlemen addressed the meeting, who, I think, advocated the merits of temperance with suc cess, giving general satisfaction to the audience. The attendance was very fair.
