The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

glrps. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17,1869. THE administration of justice in the country districts is a matter of consi derable importance, especially in the ministration of debts contracted be tween man and man. Various colonies have different regu . lations. In some the laws are admi nistered by barristers, and in others it is^ left to the disposal of a local magistracy. South Australia has adopted the latter course, which fre quently gives rise to great dissatisfac tion, the magistrates frequently being turned from their expressed opinion, and frequently reversing, their judg ments, from the eloquence of the legal gentlemen employed upon the cases of their respective clients. Too frequently, also, local influences are brought to bear upon them in giving a just decision, which frequently brings the administration of justice into con tempt. The administration of the laws ought to fce adjudicated as Justice is represented - blindfold, holding an equal balance of her scales, and the least sembl...

AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

AMATEUR CONCERT. An amateur concert in aid of the-* Clare Institute, consisting of vocal and instrumental music was held in the Town Hall on Friday" evening last. There was a moderate attendance i on the occasion. Mr. T. W. Powell, after ex plaining tbat the President of the Institute (E. B. Gleeeon, Esq.) had not been able to attend through indisposition, called upon the Clare String Band to commence the entertainment by playing the overture " The Caliph of Bagdad," which was executed admirably, and well de served the applause it elicited. The glee *' See our Oars," which followed was sung rather tamely, however, and required more spirit being thrown into it. Mr. Godlee's reading, " In goideby Legends," was not mucli appreciated, in spite of that gentleman's stentorian voire and elocutionary powers. The ballad " In happy moments" was rendered by Mr. C. Beckmann, who was received with applause, as his vocal abilities are well known, and something out of the common was expected, and ...

A WONDERFUL SHIP OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

A WONDERFUL SHIP OF WAR. There is now under construction at Chatham Dockyard, the most powerful turret-ship for offensive and defensive purposes yet built. The Glatton, which is the name of the new vessel, is being* constructed from the designs of Mr. E. J. Reed, C.B., and the utmost exertions are bein«- used to have her D completed as early as possible in the ensuing year, from the circumstance of the Glatton being the first vessel by the Admiralty on the pure turret principle, with, an exceedingly low freeboard, or heisrlit of her sides out of / u the water, more than the usual amount of interest is taken in her construction. She will be constructed with SL single turret, in w hich will be placed a couple of 25-ton guns. The thickness of the armour-plating on her sides, will be no less than 12in. above the water line, and the remainder lOin. in thickness, worked to a teak backing of 20in, The inner skin plating to which the timber backing is attached consists of two thicknesses, e...

A GERMAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

A GERMAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The Agricultural Association of Rhe nish Prussia holds the first rank of its kind in Germany. It counts 18,324 members, distributed over 60 districts, corresponding to the political divisions of the country. Its head quarters are in Bonn. The annual subscription is but one thaler-less than four francs, and every member engages to subscribe for three years. He becomes entitled to take part in the proceedings of the local society, as well as in the General Assembly, and receives free a copy of the monthly publication issued by the latter body. All the officers of this great body give their services gratui tously-their duties are divided into fourteen sections, embracing all the various branches of agriculture and its collateral sciences, and governed by a director and sub-director.

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 16. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 December 1869

AUBURN. (fbom OUR OWN cobbespondent.) December 16. The election of a District Councillor in place of Mr. John Bowden, resigned, took place in the Auburn Town Hall on the 13th inst,, John Cowled, Esq., being the Beturning Officer. The ratepayers mustered in goodly numbers, and manifested unusual interest in this election, chiefly, I think, on account of the threat by three of the Councillors, intimating that if Mr. Bowden was elected they would resign. A good deal of bantering and insulting language was exchanged with the contending parties, which exhibited some of the old spirit and doings of yore, under the system of open voting. The following was the result of the poll:-John Ward, 98; John Bowden, 50; Samuel Mont gomeiy, 1; Greo. Fitzgerald, nil. The Beturn nj; Officer declared Mr. John Ward duly elected a District Councillor of Hundred of Upper Wakefield. Harvesting operations have commenced in this neighborhood. Mr. Abraham Miller, of che Upper Wake field, while reaping on Tuesd...

KAPUNDA. (l?BOM OXJE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 16. The farmers have commenced teaping, and the yield seems to be very good in many places. On Saturday an accident happened to a man driving a waggon through the Main street. It appears that the liorees started off, and and the! man endeavored to stop them, when his foot caught in the reins, and he was thrown down. | The wheel passed over bis foot, but fortunately , did not cause any serious injury. j On Sunday last the anniversary of the Con- > gregational Chaple took place, when two ] sermons were preached by the Bev.

WATERVALE. (FHOM OTTB OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 15. Yesterday the public examination of the pupils at the S'anley Oram mar School, con ducted by Mr. J. S. Cole, took place, the attendance of visitors being smaller than usual, probably on acconnt of the intensely hot weather. Mr. Arthur King being una voidably absent, the duties of the chair were divided between the Rev. J. A. Boake and Dr. Bewicke, who with Mr. Kimber, of Clare, and one or two other gentlemen, superin tended the examination, the questions being principally put by Mr. Cole, as two pro&s* sioual examiners-the Eev. J. E. PalJhuber and Mr. Walters, of Auburn, were unable to attend. The branches of Btudy touched upor, in which great efficiency was shown, were as followsReading and dictation, history, book keeping, slate ai d mental arithmetic, geo graphy, linear drawing, algebra and equations, Latin composition, translation, and parsing, and scantling English poetry.

THE GROWTH OF JOURNALS IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869

THE GROWTH OF JOURNALS IN AMERICA. The New York Journal of Commerce lately discussed the establishment of daily newspapers in New York, showing the reasons why so many start and fail. The true cause is, we think, the same in New York as in London, where there already exist organs ably, repre senting every party and shade of opi nion. To start a new journal is to enter into competition with these, the ground being occupied wherever the projectors may turn. Hence the neces sity for an enormous capital to start a ?newspaper equal to those already worked !by time, talent, and money, into effi ciency, and to keep that paper afloat till it has become self-supporting; hence, too, the fifty-five failures in New York city within the third of a century. It has been tried in vain again and again in London, where some of the efforts were so ridiculous that the projects, to escape the universal belief in their folly, ought to tell the secret history of the attempt. Such, for instance, was The Da...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 18G9. OLD Father Christmas has once more come round, to cheer with his soul inspiring influence us poor sojourners in this land of harrowing- excitements, heat, and Legislative perplexities, and with his mirth-producing attributes, lighten our hearts from the dull mono tony of private troubles or business cares with which some of us may be oppressed-at least for the space of time occupied by bis annual visitation. Now is the period when in the old country all is gaiety, mirth, and good fellowship; foes will meet, and, for gfitfol of past enmities, will cordially shake each other's hands, as in the days of former friendships; creditors will forget the faults and delays of their debtors, and even the bar of earthly justice looks leniently upon the trivial offenders of its rigid codes, arid those who are undergoing the penalties inflicted upon them for their "past offences are prov ided with a sufficiency of the marked luxuries of this festive; and holy season, to ...

STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869

STRAW. Dry fodder, in the form of straw or hay, ought to be very plentiful this i harvest, and although it is at times in 1 convenient through a scarcity of hands to stack the straw as it is thrashed, yet it ought always to be done when yrnc ticable, as its sweetness is better pre served, and its value less deteriorated, than when it is dragged away and allowed to lie through sunshine, and perhaps rain, for a month before being stacked. A stack of straw is well worth the cost of extra labor required for securing it, and when the stack is built it will pay well for thatching. Our brother farmers in the old country would wonder to see a man with horse and network drawing away the straw from our wheat and oat stacks, as they are thrashed, and alter an acre or two is covered with it to the depth of two or more feet, to learn that a firestick is put to it because 'tis not worth saving; and vet this is the case in manv dis ./ »/ tricts upon those farms having a good deal of bush feed atta...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 28. A lecture was delivered in the Town Hall by Mr. T. W. Walters, of Auburn, on " Educa tion," on behalf of the Auburn Mutual Improve ment Society, at which Mr. J. H. Adameon presided. There was a rather small attendance. The lecture was very instructive and interesting. There were federal duets sung in a very effec tive manner by Mess*?. D. 33. Burry and T. W. Walter?, Mrs. Walters accompanying them on the piano, kindly lent by Mr. Walters, the Hall instrument being out of tune, consequently not fit for use. The usual votes of thanks to the lecturer, choir, and chairman brought an inte resting meeting to a close, which meeting merited a much larger attendance. The weather of late has been rather oppres sive, especially ou Monday last. An immense dust storm arose, and covered the township at about 4 p.m., causing total darkness for several minutes, terrifying several of the inhabitants, as some were actually rnnning tj their neigh bors...

THE CARIBE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869

THE CARIBE. A more important source of anxiety to the rivers was several dangerous fish among the multitude struggling in the water, such as the ray-fish, whose tail is furnished with a sting three inches long, with which it inflicts a very pain ful wound; electric eels, whose touch alone will paralyse in an instant the muscles of the strongest man; the pa yara, shaped somewhat like a sabre and equally dangerous. The lower jaw of this last is furnished with a formidable pair ot fangs, not unlike those of the rattlesnake; with these it inflicts as smooth a gash as if cut with a razor; and, finally, the caribe, whose ravenous and bloodthirsty propensities have caused it to be likened to the cannibal tribe of Indians, once the terror of those regions, but now scattered fever the towns and villages along the course of the Orinoco. Each time the nets were hauled on shore, half-a-score or more of these little pests were to be seen jumping in the crowd, their jaws wide open, tearing whatev...

WATERVALE. (FUOM OUB OWN COEEESPONDENT.) December 22. On Monday fast, at about 3 45 p.m., this township was suddenly thrown into darkness by a most terrific dust storm ; lamps bad to be lighted in the houses, and even outside j fences only 15 feet distant were quite invisible. Many roofs were much damaged, including that of the mill, and light, temporary fabrications were blown about like so much chuff. Numbers of persons were greatly alarmed, thinking the " last day" had come, and indeed the circum stance was most appalling. The storm lasted about fifteen minutes, and after an interval of nearly half an hour, was repeated for the same length of time; then the temperature, which had been very high ail day, began to cool, and a few drops of rain fell. The night was cloudy and pleasant, and on Tuesday morning we had one or two smart show era, accompanied by thunder, which were very refreshing, though I fear not what could be desired for the crops at the present time. To-day is like an...
