AUBURN: (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 3. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
AUBURN; (fbom oue OWN cobeespondent.) December 3. The weather has been very tempestuous during the past week; and I understand a good deal of the hay is damaged in consequence, being mouldy. Heaping has commenced on Hoyle's Plains, and I expect will be general in about a week, as the wheat is ripening very fast, which will no doubt tend to improve business mattere. Things are very dull here now, the mill having been stopped several weeks, the corn stores closed, and business generally very stag nant. At the Auburn Mutual Improvement Society's meeting, held on Thursday evening, an interesting essay was delivered by Mr. E. Spicer, the essayist. The usual criticisms were made by the members, eleven of whom were present After this the Secretary announced the subjects for essays, recitations, readings, poems, &c,5 to be competed for at their Grand Annual Conversazione, by the members, in February next; and also informed them that the Auburn Harmonic Society had complied with thei...
BRAN FOR BABIES [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
BRAN FOR BABIES Everybody knows that dolls are stuffed with sawdust, but that real babies should be packed and preserved in bran is probably new to most people; and yet the practice is not-if we may express ourselves in the sorry pun which suggests itself-a bran new one. On the contrary it has been tried long enough to have enabled one lady to bring up a family of five children, all of whom were lodged in cradles filled with bran, in which they slept away the unconscious sleep of infancy. Some years ago, a doctor residing in a French village, about an hour and a half's railway journey from Paris-a M. Bourgeois, of Crepyen, Valois-j took it into liis head that the cleanest, healthiest, and best way of managing infants was to discard all the clothing peculiar to their age in iavor of bran, in which material they were to be de ?osited at night or whenever they sleep, t was not long before he succeeded in finding an adventurous matron wal ling to try his method ; and now this theory has...
NOTES OF BUNGAREE AND NEIGHBORHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
NOTES OP BUNGAREE NEIGHBORHOOD. Shearing has concluded at Bungaree, up wards of 100.000 shtep havirg been shorn there. Considerable improvements have been affected this season in the interior arrangements of the shed, the pressing and storing department having been much enlarged ; and through the new device of having an open passage running through the entire length of the building between the catching pens, all inconvenience arising from delay in filling up with sheep has been avoided. We learn that boiling down will shortly be commenced on this station. An improved method for sheep-washing, through the aid of a powerful engine and pump, is under course of erection, and a fellmonger is kept constantly employed taking wool from skins, washing loci s, pieces, &c. The feed on this station is scarcer than it ha9 been known for years, especially towards the Ananas district; and we are informed that at the Black Point and Hummocks Stations things wear a very gloomy aspect, and it...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 3 December 1869
PUBLIC MEETING. A meeting was held in the Court-house on Friday evening last, at 6 p.m, in accordance with a public notice, for the purpose of consi dering who was the most fit and proper person to represent the town as Mayor for the ensuing year. The indifference which has prevailed of late amongst the residents as to who represents the town, did not pass away even on this im portant occasion. The time appointed arrived, &nbsp; but only a few persons had assembled. The majority of the ratepayers who had signed the requisition requesting his Worship the Mayor to convene the meeting evidently considered it to be of so little importance, that they could not afford to lose their time in attending. It was therefore considered desirable to stay the proceedings for half an hour, which was ac cordingly done. At the expiration of this time about thirty persons had assembled, and E. B. &nbsp; Gleeson, Esq., was voted to the chair. The Chairman stated that he had caled the mee...

Charles Houlton Webb and Andrew Young were the candidates for the civic chair ; Messrs. T. W. Powell and J. Harder as Councillors for East Ward; and Messrs. J. Fels and J. Victoreen for North-west Ward. Little or no excitement prevailed on the occasion ; but a few gentlemen who took an active interest in the return of Dr. Webb, ex hibited a little display in the shape of placards posted about the town, and kept a buggy and pair perambulating the streets with a flag flying bearing t he inscription, " Vote for Webb for Mayor." - The polling fcr Mayor took place in all the Wards; and for Councillors, for North-west Ward at the Shamrock and Thistle Hotel; East Ward at the Court-house ; and com menced at 9 a.m., closing at 5 p m., when the Returning officcr declared the following to be the result: Mayor. - Charles Houghton Webb, 41; Andrew Young, 32.

A HINDOO STUDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
A HINDOO STUDENT. We have a little story to tell which we think our readers will admit is creditable to all concerned. In the early part of last year a young Hindoo, of Calcutta, a youth of very high caste and a medical student, animated with a craving for a wider career than seemed possible to him as he was, threw his caste and his nobility to the winds, j and embarked for England. He ar rived in July, and immediately went down to the Edinburgh University medical classes, where in a few months he took his degree of M.D. with honours. Bearing an introduction from a Scottish clergyman to a brother clergyman here, he returned to Lon don, and lived during the winter in the house of the latter, studying- for the Indian medical service. He went into the examination in April last, and his talents and acquirements were such that his friends never dreampt of his not being successful. He passed easily in the oral examination, but did not do so well in the written examination, from sheer manu...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Gawler Times writes as follows :- . *' LaBt week has been rather a dull one for business people, who have been complaining much. The cause of this is to be traced ro the combination of several circumstances. In the first instance the usual quantity of cement has not been crushed, as most parties hold back their lots awaiting the opening of the new crushing machinery. Then our population, as often stated before, gets thinned by the demand there exists for harvest labor, and laBtly, there has been some attraction towards the Muiraj flat diggings. Slight as that attraction has been, it makes itself felt in a small population. There exists another offcen-alluded-to circum stance which induces people rather to leave the diggings, at least for a time, than to submit to tiie injustice of paying 5s. for a minfr's right in force only for about three weeks. Of course this grievance was never felt as much as just now, and one cannot blame anybod...
ORIGINAL POETRY. FADED ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
ORIGINAL'. POETRY. \ - FADED ROSES. FADSD roBes, mournful emblems Of Life's sweetest pleasures -fled; Withered roses, fitting semblance Of hopes buried with my dead. Once my roses, fair and blooming, Shed their fragrance to the wind; And my Soul, its pinions pluming, Soared to meet dead Rosalind. But stern Winter, harsh and dreary, On my flow'rets cast his frown; And my fainting Soul, aweary, Fluttering, back to earth fell down. Oh! pale roses, still there lingers 'Midst your leaves a perfumed breath; Sweet ones, plucked by her dear fingers, Exhale still her dirge of Death! H.L. Adelaide, Pec. 6.
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, DEC. 3 [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869

There was, however, no seconder to his proposition. TUESDAY, DEC. 7. The Insolvency Bill and~Debtors Bill Were read a third time and passed. The Estimates were further considered in committee.

The Northern Territory Act Amendment Bill was read a second time. : Mr. Carr'jj motion as to the desirability of erecting stone and slate buildings instead of constructing iron edifices was carried. A humpbacked man once took an early morning's walk, when on meeting a friend who was unfortunately short of an eye, the latter remarked, " Why, S., you are loaded bj times this morning." " Tee," replied the other, " I suppose it is somewhat early, as I 'see you have only one window-Bhutter open/'"
EARLY DAYS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
EARLY DAYS OF THE COLONY. STILL was the morn, the sun from o\r the hills Hose up blood-red, and cast his sultry beams On Aufitral'a virgin soil; and In the groves And in the forests green the startled birds, Chattering .their wonder in wild jarring tones, Fled off with fear; and from his lowly bed The barbarous native sprang, with gleaming eye, As the deep tones of woodman's falling axe Galled forth the many echoes of the bush When first it smote the gum-tree and she-oatc.
ON BREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
ON BREAMS. How strange these fanciful illusions, but how plain These watery shadows ofttimea mark the brain F How true they picture with their fairest rays The long-remembered light of other day a ? How oft long buried dead they conjure back To once more, as if living, cross our track, And we not feel amazement at the sight, But glibely chatter with these ghoBt« of night ? How oft in present scenes thev love to dwell, And these events of future days foretell P The brightest scenes of earth they will purtray, And then so sweetly, softly, fade away!

POLICE COURT-CLARE. TUESDAY, DEC. 7. (Before Mr. McDermott, S.M.) COR COHAN V. CLEAKY. James Cleary was charged by Police-trooper Corcoran with selling liquor to aborigines on the 26 h November, at Armagh, and pleaded not guilty. John Farrell deposed-I remember last Fii day week, 26;h JSov. I was at Mr. Cleary's house that evening. I saw Mr. Cleary give the blacks Jack Baggs and Billy goat some wine. He gave the wine in a can to one and a bottle to the other. It was taken out of a cask. I know it was wine, for I have tasted it. I tasted it out of the can. I saw Cleary put the wine into the can. There was a number of blacks about that day drunk. I was in Cleary's house when the wine was given to the natives. I was not in the same room. 1 was sitting on a box in the next room. There was a cranky man-Daniel Davis-with the blacks that day. 1 aai sure Billy paid for the wine. I did not go to lay an information. I told the police Mr Hickey was drinking with the blacks. He is an uncle of m...
WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) December 9. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
WATERVALE. (FROM OTJB OWJST COEEESPOKDEKT ) December 9. My silence during the last two or three; weeks has not resulted in an accumulation of j news, as the dull season seems not to have | passed oyer at present. The hay harvest is nearly completed, the yield beirg an average one, though a good deal of it was much damaged by the late rains. An old and respected resident in this district, Mr. David Davies, has been taken from us, after a protracted illness. His remains were interred in Penwortham Churchyard, a large number of people attending the funeral. The plasterers are busy with the Foresters* Hall which will probably not be opened till next month, as the work is taking longer than the Building Committee bad anticipated. The main North road is now closed between Wetervale and Xieaeingham, for forming and metalling, and the traffic has to go by a track parallel thereto on the east side. The con tractor, Mr. David Sands, has from 20 to 30 men employed, and is pushing the work for ...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 9. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869
AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 9. The weather has still been very changeable, which is keeping baek the harvest; but if it is fair for a few days, reaping will commence here. I see the Uudalya Wakefield Bridge is under going repairs, the old floor being taken ofF, and new planking laid down. Although it will in convenience the carters (who bare to go a long way round) for a short period, it waa a job greatly in need cf being done, as many of the plauks were rotten and unsafe.
