NEWS AND NOTES. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
NEWS AND NOTES. BY AN ADELAIDE MAN. Wednesday Evening. The proposed conference of colonial delegates in London is engrossing a considerable amount of attention from politicians. On Tuesday last the Hon. J. Baker asked the Chief Sec retary whether the Government, in their pro posed communication with the Governments of the other Australasian colonies, intended to suggest any definite line of action, or to express anv, and if so, what opinion with reference to the proposed meeting. It was his belief that the Government should have a policy of its own, and that they should make up their minds as to what thej intended to do irrespec tive of what might be determined upon by the Governments of the other colonies. The Chief Secretary replied that no definite action had as yet been decided upon, the matter being still under the consideration of the Government. It may be remarked that the members of the Victorian Legislature, while repudiating the action of the movers of the Colonial Confere...

MRS. HOAR AND THE CORPORATION RATES. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 November 1869
MRS. HOAR AND THE CORPORATION RATES. 1 (To the Editor of the KOBTHERTT ATIOTTS ^ I SIB.-Will you allow me to make a few retrarks through jour valuable columns in reference to a notice read at the last Corporation meeting from Mrs, Hoar, stating that she was not in a position to pay the rates imposed upon her. His Worship the Mayor remarked that she woHld have to pay. He surely forgets the dirty and dangerous creek close to her house, which makes it of less value than it is rated at. The creek is so bad that her late husband's funeral had to be conducted all round the town, and then pass within a hundrtd yards of the house. A bridge ought to have been con structed across before any property was as sessed in that street. Councillor Bowley stated at the Corporation meeting that Mrs. Hoar was well able to pay the rates, as she was having stone carted for the purpose of building a house. I beg to call Mr. Bowlej's attention to the fact that the stone is being carted free of coet to the p...

About 4 o'clock yes terday afternoon Mr. Hunter came to the kitchen door and stood against it. He asked my father what he was going to do with the vines, and he said he would cut the grass out, but could nothing more. Hunter said, Will you? that is as I please. Father asked him what business he had with them, and Hunter said if he was obstinate, he (Hunter) could be obstinate also. Hunter said he would soon let him know he had as much right there as he had. Father requested him to leave the house, as it would be much better for him. Hunter kept coming into the hou...
ATTEMPT TO MURDER A PRIEST IN A CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 November 1869
ATTEMPT TO MURDER A PRIEST IN A CATHEDRAL. About the middle of August, during the morning service in the Lutheran Cathedral of Berlin, just as the young priest was uttering the words com mencing the creed, " I believe in God," a young man who had forced his way through the crowd, and opened the door of the altar rails, cried out, " Thou liest," and taking a small pistol from under his paletot, fired a shot at the minister. For a moment the whole assembly seemed stupefied j but pre sently the sexton seized the would-be assassin, who made no attempt to escape, and delivered him into the hands of the police. The priest, though wounded, read the remainder of the liturgy, and the service was con cluded in the usual way, but not with out special thanksgiving offered for his marvellous escape. The criminal is about 18 years of age, and is the son of a smith, who intended him for a preacher, but he had become a Mate rialist, and declared he would kill the first priest he met. When he was ta...
ORIGINAL POETRY. A PASSING THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 November 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY. A PASSING THOUGHT. OH I where are all the meny days of child hood's truthful joy, Those daya without the harr'wing sighs which after hopes alloy; Bememembr'st thou the old brick house with ivy overgrown, The chestnut trees each side the walk, the old oak 'mid the lawn; The white stone steps, the latticed porch, with roses climbing o'er, The bright sun shining all around, and thro' | the open door; i And from the Gothic window side thy mother's i gentle face Would smile benignly through the flowers, and all thy gambols trace ? Hast ever in this world of change another face e'er seen, That wore the look that that one did, between the leaves so green, Oft musing with thy little friends, in pleasant evening time, Or listening to the distant sounds of church's merry chime ? Or with sweet honeysuckle wreath thy young love's brow would'st crown, And seat the queen of that night's sports upon a grotto throne, Where all thy little friends would come, and gentle tribute pay, ...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 November 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The correspondent of the Gawler Times thue writes:-"A more unpleasant day than tie one we have just passed (Nov. 10) can hardh be imagined on the diggings, when the heat and dust make it insupportable out of doore, ; and when the tents and other places resemble bakers' ovens more than human habitations; in fact, the only pleasant place on such a cUy is under ground in the drives of ventilated claims. Fortunately, towards night a decided change set in, but I am afraid that the apparent prospect of a smart shower of rain, which i3 much needed for repairing dams and water hole?, has disappeared. Of news regarding digging, I may mention that a prospecting claim on Edward's Hill has been granted during the week. It appears that two parties have been working on that bill ever since the first rush, doing, as report says, very well, but keeping their luck " dark," as it is termed, until at last the truth oozed out in a dispute amongst themselves, and the consequence was an a...

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) November 18. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 November 1869
WATERVALE. (FfiOM OTJfi OWN COBBBSPONDENT ) November 18. On Wednesday evening, the 17th instant, the choir of the Bible Christian Chapel gave their third concert, which, judging from the applause given by the large and respectable audience, was a decided success, and a marked improvement on their former efforts. The programme, which consisted of instrumental piece?, solos, duets, and choru?e?, was gone through in a spirited manner, and showed that considerable time had been given to the practice of the pieces by the various performers. Subjoined are some of the pieces which call for special comment. The first was an anthem by Fawcett,*? Blessed is he that consider* th the poor and needy," which was rendered by the choir with much taste and etpreesion. The second was a solo entitled " Faith," by Glover, which was nicely sung by Mr. Williamson. Hext came a pirce by the choir, *' Lord, what love have I un-0 thy law," which was very well given, the openirg trio being especially sung wit...
