FAR NORTH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Strangway'S Springe, Nov. 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869

FAR NORTH. (FBOM OUE OWN COEBESPONDENT.) Strangway'S Springe, NOT. 28. The natives in this neighborhood have of late suffered severely from inflaenzi, or a somewhat similar complaint. Some of them were bo bad that they could scarcely procure sufficient food to sustain life j while three of the femenine sex suffered eo much (hat death ensued. The clothing of the rativcs is very scanty, con sisting of an old shirt, or something similar, which no doubt some philantrophist presented to them ; a few, however, possess blankets with the broad B. conspicuously marked on them. Uo doubt, the principal cause of their indispo sition has been the very changeable state of the weather, as one day is sometimes excessively hot, while the following is quite the reverse. The Far Eorth-or more correctly speaking, the So: th-west-is not the insignificant region it is generally supposed to be, judging from the vaBt quantity (f sheep that are travelling on this track in search of grass, owing, I believe, ...

OUR LOCAL INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869

OUR LOCAL INDUSTRIES. We have been favored by the permission of an inspection of the premises of Messrs. Paler son & Co., machinist?, builders, &?., cf this town, and have been most favorably impressed with our visit. The foreman (Mr. (Jodlet) kindly assisted our inspection by pointing out to us the various uses to which the many branches of the establishment are applicable. Our attention was first drawn to the engine house, containing an engine of tight horse power, which drives a circular saw, saws for cutting deals and other timbers, fans lor foundry blast, lathe for tiring the wheels of reaping machines, also rrarjl inery used for drilling and grinding. On the left of which department we visited a spacious foundry for iron castings, with iron and brass furnaces attached. An apparatus for steaming timber and other wheel wright's work are observed near at hand. This latter was not in working at the time of our visit, but from what we could judge, it appeared to for...

THE IMPORTANCE OF TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869

THE IMPORTANCE OF TREES. In the able statement which Mr. Grant Duff made on Tuesda}r of the financial condition of our u Great Vas sal Empire in Asia," he touched upon a subject of vital importance to many countries besides our Indian possesions. He alluded to the efforts made by Her Majesty's Government in India for the preservation and reproduction of forest trees. There is, perhaps, no subject better entitled to the attention of prac tical politicians, yet no subject more heedlessly abandoned to the speculation of economical theorists, no subject on which the rules of the commonist fore sight have been more utterly dis regarded. There is nothing, perhaps, on which men in many countries evince greater improvidence than the destruc tion of woods; yet there is hardly a cause apparently trifling which is at tended with more calamitous effects. As Mr. Grant Duff said, "forests are always considered to be inexhaustible till they begin to be exhausted." We are not sure that some people ...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 10 December 1869

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1869. IT is gratifying that that portion of the Land Act referring to tlie bona fide occupation of the land by settlers has proved a success in the South East. "VVe find by Mr. Cheriton's motion-that it is unadvisable to offer for sale by auction any lands within the agricultural area of Narracoorte, thereby avoiding the contingency of its falling* into the hands of the squatter or speculator-has been con firmed by the opinion-of the House, | although in opposition to the circum scribed views of the Commissioner of Crown Lands. This is a step in the right direction. No doubt the Commissioner regrets that the means of replenishing the Treasury at the expense of the best; interests of the country is rather annoying, and the Government may find a difficulty in surfeiting the banks with large sums of money, as in days of yore; but still large areas com prising something like 576,000 acres, cultivated by industrious settlers, would be more advantageous to the country...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Evening Journal writes as follows : " Ytstcrday (Dec. 8) some little interest was manifested here, as it was reported that a pre liminary trial wculd be made of the crushing machine. Stragglers and small groups arrived and departed during the day, but towards evening a large number had collected. By the efforts that were made it was evident that a trial was intended, The fires were lighted early in the afternoon, but it was about six o'clock before the arrangements were completed for starting. During the afternoon the Direc tors, and a few gentlemen from Gawler and lijndoch, arrived to watch the proceedings j but the weather was very unpropitious, a strong cold wind was blowing, accompanied occa sionally with severe driving showers of rain, which on two or three occasions drove the workmen from their labor?, as the shed is at present open on every side.

ORIGINAL POETRY. THOUGHTS IN GLOOMY MOMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

ORIGINAL POETRY. THOUGHTS IN GLOOU5T MOMENTS Sweet pass'd days of pleasures faded, That come to us in hours of woe, Though e'en with bitter thoughts be shaded, Si ill brighten up the clouded brow. When all seems dark, and drearj winter, And not a flower blooms on our way, 'Sweet mem'ry keeps our hearts from sinking, By bringing back our merry day. And though the world gives not the credit To our pangs of drear remorse; Yefc One above us oft doth debit Those who ne'er our pains endorse. And though the flowers we lore will leave us. Though they wither, fade, and die, Yet. our hearts may still remember The bloom to us the world deny. E. A.
