KAPUNDA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) NOVEMBER 25. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869
KAPUNBA. (FROM OUB OWN COBEESPONDEITT.) NOVEMBER 25. On Friday last a very sad aceident happened at Bagot's Well to a man named Michael Mad degon. He was employed at grubbing a tree, when it suddenly fell on him. He survived only an hour afterwards. On Saturday a very strange accident hap pened to a man lodging at the Railway Hotel, Kapunda. He was occupying one of the up stair rooms, when a fit of dizziness came over him, and he made a rush at the window, and fell down a height of twenty feet, breaking his leg just above the knee. He was conveyed to the Adelaide Hospital on Monday by the first train. Serious doubts were entertained of Ins recovery, as he is an old man of fifty; but I learn since that he is progressing favorably. On Monday we were visited by a very heavy thunderstorm, which was the commencement of very heavy rain, which has lasted up to the present time, with a very strong wind blowing from the west, which has given the place the appearance of winter. On Tuesday eve...

SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869
SUMMARY OF NEWS. The most important subject brought under the notice of the Social Science Congress sitting at Bristol was, "What ought to be the Legal and Constitutional Relations between England and America ?" The President (Sir Stratford Noithcote) remarked that he took the chair with the distinct understanding that their object was not to loose but to strengthen the bond uniticg the different parties of the empire. Several papers were read, and a discussion took place in which several colonial notabilities shared. Earl Granville censures the Governer of Queensland for remissness in regard to the slare trade, and exhorts to greater watchful ful. Her Majesty is still in Scotland. Mr. Gladstone, has been the Ministerlh attendance, and his health has much improved. Mr. Patton, the Lord Justice Clerk of Scot land, has committed suicide from a morbidly sensitively dread of exposure of certain bribery practices at an election at Bridgewater several years ago.

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 26 November 1869
iht mtfyr \x grps. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26,1869. ; THE ensuing elections are now close at hand, and the greatest unconcern as to the result prevails amongst the rate payers. The nomination for the various offices takes place on Saturday next at the Court-house, and as far as is gene rally known only one candidate is likely to come forward willing to undertake the arduous duties attached to the Mayoralty. The present Mayor seems to have had quite enough of it, and he has politely refused the request of his friends to stand again as a candidate. Owing to three of the Councillors retiring by ballot, the offices they have filled for the last twelve months will now be vacant, and until the nomina tion day the probability is that but few will know who is likely to repre sent the various wards, oar whether they will be likely to be represented at all. At the revision of the burgess lists on Tuesday last about twenty-five names were placed on the electoral roll in addition to those which were o...

THE LODGING-HOUSE SERVANT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
LODGING-HOUSE SERVANT. Look upon this London picture. A maid of all-work cleaning the door steps at five in the morning', her arms very red: a pail by her side full of dirty water: no cap on: one fist clenched, the other moving rapidly: at tlie distance a policeman watching a ragged creature who lolls, against the shutters of a cornet public-house; all around the windows gloomed by drawn stained blinds; and no sound but the distant whistle of a laborer off to bis work, the murmer of voices around an early coffe stall in an ad joining street, and the rattling wheels of a cab bearing some man borne from an evening party, limp-collared, drag gle-wliiskered, and weak-eyed. You would think this dirty, scrubbing, lodging-house servant a very un romantic creature, and yet, if you were to know the life of romance the woman loads, you would be as tonished. The reason of her feeling so sleepy this morning-" more sleepier than usual," she would tell you--is that last night she succeeded in smu...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondsnt of the Gawler Times writes as follows From the new rush at Moint Crawford there has been no further news during the week. MoBt of those parties whohad left for that place in such haste, have returned to their work on these digging?. On the new hill near Pil grim's property, several shafts have been bot tomed, and gold has been obtained in some. The gold is of a coaree, and water-worn de scription ; a sample from there was shown to me, which consisted of i dwt. piece, and fome smaller ones. The sinking on this hill varies much, the greatest depth at present arrived at is about 30 feet. The late copious rains have been very beneficial to these digging, having re-filled the damB and water holes, which gave signs of being soon exhausted, so that there exists no fear now of being short of water this season. The dam across the Yatt C eek near the new crushing machine has nearly been filled, and the company have reason to con gratulate themselves o...
ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES ON ANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY. . ': LINEjf6$f AN AM A. Beams of day were bo% stealing O'er the proBpect far »nd near, Parting shades of night revealing House and school andhlaudscape fair. Sun roee in splendour o'er the hills, And flaked the plain with burnished gold ; : Birds their morning carols sang - Sheep were winding from the fold. Shrilly loud the cocks were crowing, Echoed in the distance round; Arrayed in full, the peacock strutting Proudly o'er the dewy ground. In the -stalls the steeds were neighing, Eager looking o'er the rails As the steps familiar sounding Come with brnsh and corn and pail. Bly thely tripping up the pathway, liittle form with shining hair, Sound the building searching shrewdly * For the eggs which might be there. Grey old house, so sombre looking, Opes its doors and uehers forth Sisters youthful, fair, and courteous, So mornings' duties never loth. Bell soon tinkles from the schoolroom, Gathering up its little crew ; Kindly matron their presiding, Teaching doctrince...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, I8G9. A LITTLE more than fifteen years have now elapsed since responsible govern ment was first instituted in these colonies. Old colonists have now an opportunity of judg-ng between the two systems. There is no doubt that many hardships and inconveniences arose from the neglect of the Home office, causing- much irritation from the neglect which resulted from the multitudinous demands made upon their greatest consideration. The ap pointment of officers to various colonial posts tended, no doubt, to make the colonies anxious for a different form of government, whereby their children would be advanced to the higher offices of the State. There is no doubt that Downing street were equally anxious to be relieved of the responsibility which was constantly getting them into difficulties with the colonies. It is more than probable that the policy of self-government resulted from the famous report of Lord Durham after the revolution, in 1836. It is a grave question whethe...
