The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 19 November 1869

Site mthfn ^rps. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1869. THE return of Mr. Goyder from the Northern Territory, after having- suc cessfully accomplished his mission, must be a source of great satisfaction to the Government that sent him on his undertaking, and to the colony at large. Four townships have been laid out, and over 600,000 acres of land sur veyed, thus proving that the dismal forebodings of a few interested indi viduals have no reality. The country generally is described as being emi nently adapted for settlement, a large portion of the land being well grassed and watered, and in every respect suitable for agricultural purposes. Most tropical products can be grown there, one correspondent stating his belief that in certain localities the culture of rice would prove remune rative. Although very warm, the climate does not appear to have injuriously affected the health of the expedition, only two deaths having occurred-one being that of Mr. J. W. O. Bennett, and the other a cook named Ha...

POLICE COURT-CLARE. TUESDAY, NOV. 16. (Before E. B. Gleeson, Esq., S.M.) John Hunter, sen., was charged with having feloniously assaulted Thomas Peacock and Edwin Peacock, on the 3rd instant. Mr. Gower appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Hosier for the defence. Edwin Peacock, being sworn, testified to the correctness of the evidence on the trial of Enos Peacock and John Hunter, jun., which was read to him. Cross-examined: My father sold the section to Hunter on the condition that he was not to take possession until the 15th of February next. It was too late to plough between the vines on the 3rd of November. When my father said he was going to cut the grass between the vines, Hunter said, Will you? That's my business. Father told him to go out of the house. He did not go, and I did not try to put him out. My father and I did not try to knock him down ; neither did I strike him before he took the hammer. Father said, D___ it, if you don't go out, I will put you out. The two &am...

ROMANCE OF CRIME. (From the "Ovens Spectator.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869

ROMANCE OF CRIME. (From tbe t4 Ovens Spectator.") The most sensational story which we have heard for many years is that of the man James Smith, now awaiting execution in the Beechworth Gaol. It will be remembered this man was tried last month for the murder of his wife at the Spring's, near Chiltern. The whole story is so recent we need not repeat it; but some very singular facts connected with the history of Smith have come out since. It had been strongly suspected before the trial that lie had been previously married, and that his wife had either been made away with or was still in existence. He always denied being- previously married. Just before his trial, how ever, a woman called to see him at the i gaol, stating- she was his wife, and that his real name was Higgins. The wo j man had been a -resident in Beech j worth for three years, and when at the gaol called herself Mrs. Higgins. On being asked whether he would see her, he protested that he neither knew her nor the name. Aft...

THE GOLDJFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Crawler Times writes as follows A rumor that payable gol^I haB been .disco vered near Mount Crawford, about 10 miles from here, prevailed yesterday, causing at first but Blight notice, as new rushes in that locality have fretjfcently been reported, and like those of the Humbug Scrub, always prove a mjth. Bat when it became known that the prospector had left a sample of coarse gold about 6 dwts, the produce of hh tin dish prospects, at the camp, and that the Warden was to proceed to the place to-day for the purpose of granting the prospecting claim, the excitement rose con siderably, and towards night a large number of miners left in search of the new El Dorado, followed this morning at early dawn by about an equal number on a similar errand. Mr. Peterswald this morning was accompanied by a large body of horsemen, all eager to have the first pick of the new ground. In fact it almost appeared as if the population of Baroesa had determi...

THE MORSE BATHOMETER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869

THE MORSE BATHOMETER. Sydney E. Morse, tlie well-known geographer, and his son Mr. Living ston Morse, have recently invented and patented an exceedingly ingenious in strument called the bathometer, for measuring great depths of water. Great difficulty has hitherto been ex perienced in endeavoring* to obtain soundings in deep water with a sinker attached to a line, on account of the line being liable to be swayed out of a direct perpendicular by submarine cur rents and by the drift of the vessel, so that much more line might frequently be paid out than was really required to reach the bottom. To obviate this difficulty the Messrs. Morse conceived the idea of an automatic apparatus, which, by its own action, should de scend to the bottom of the sea and return again to the surface bringing* with it a register of the distance tra velled or the depth attained. For this purpose they employ a hollow cylinder or tube of tin or wood, about six inches in diameter, and several feet in length, ...

Mrs. Burmester and her child, two years old, were at home. Konopeck told Mrs. B. that he had cut his finger, and desired to have it tied up. While she was in a stooping position the wretch, who had followed her, sprang upon her with the ferocity of a wild beast, and heat her violently. She resisted, and the inhuman wretch left the room and went upstairs. As soon as he had left, she fastened the door, and took down a double-harrelled shot-gun that was hanging on a rack in tke room, and prepared to defend her honor and kill the wretch, should he again appear. In a short time he returned, and findino* the door fastened fired two D shots from a revolver through tlie door at her. He then appeared at the front window, and immediat...

AUBURN. (FROM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) November 24. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869

AUBURN. (FROM OUE own COEBESPONDENT.) November 24. On Monday, after a very severe doststorm and hot wind, a thunderstorm succeeded, also very severe. When the gale had reached its climax at about 8 p.m., it carried a new gal* vanised iron roof containing about 50 sheets of iron 8 feet long, with the timbers to which it was fastened, from Mr. WagBtaff's building, New Auburn (which had only just been fixed), damaging it considerably. Some portions were carried away near half a section. Imagine the fright of the inmates-three being in this shop ' at the time of the accident-who, left roofless, lights necessarily extinguished, and in the dark, having to grope their way in the pelting run to the nearest place for shelter. I do not suppose they stopped to sing the well-known glee " When shall we three meet again; in thunder, lightning, or in rain ?" The weather has been stormy ever since Monday evening, and still continues so, which it is feared, will do serious damage to the hay partly s...

ROCHESTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) November 23. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869

ROCHESTER. (FEOM OUE OWN COEEESPONDEJXT ) November 23, The grasshoppers in this locality have, after demolishing nearly all the grasp, entirely dis appeared^ which is not to be regretted. The crops are now ready for the machine as soon as the weather permits ; but on the Magpie they are very poor, and not more than three bushels to the acre i» anticipated by the fanners; they are rather better, however oa B&ngaree. We have had some very oppressive hot winds of late accompanied with duststorms, which made the weather almost unbearable. At the present time it is quite the reverse, being very : wet -and cold, and the rains have made the i creek almost impassably besides doing a deal ' of injury to the crops by breaking them down, which will be an impediment to the reaping machine. Hay harvesting is nearly finished. The Great Wheal Broughton Craig Mine is at a standstill; but work is likely to be resumed at some future period.
