MINTARO. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) December 21. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
MINTARO. (fbom oub OWS coesebpondent ) December 21. .Nothing of importance has occurred in our quiet little township of late. Yesterday was the most fearful and disagreeable day that the oldest inhabitants ever remember witnessing. The whole district appeared to be filled up with dost from morning till evening. The topsof several haystacks and the roofs of bouses were blown off by the continual gusts of wind; in fact, it was equally as bad as Black Thursday, and fully deserves the designation of Black or Bed Monday, as the dust was of a reddish hue. On Friday last a fine mob of horses belonging to Mr. Fowler, of Yorke's Peninsula, were put up by auction at Mr. J. Bleecbmore's yards. The sale, however, proved a failure, which may be laid to the unusual depression of the times. I am informed that a few private sates took place afterwards. EFFECTS OF ADVEBTISING.-Lecture with out bills-place half filled j realised £5. Lec ture with bills, cost 10s-Place more than full; amount £9. Moral...

ROCHESTER. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) December 21. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
ROCHESTER. (FBOX OUB OWIOORBSSPONDENT.) December 21. Harvest Is well set in, bat reapers are much detained in consequence of the weather being so changeable. We have had some fearful hot weather lately. Last Tuesday was one of the hottest days I ever experienced, and old residents up here cold me that they have never seen such a day as last Tuesday; the dust came in clouds, which made it impossible for man or beast to face it, which, together with scorching hot winds, which woe exceedingly strong, caused the day to be very disagreeable. So less than three roofs have been blown off by the wind, which has also done considerable damage to the wheat crop?, shaking out a great deal of the grain.
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
THE GOLDFIELDS. Tbe Evening Journal's correspondent of the 17th December writes as follows: "The principal event of the week was of course the demonstration at the starting of the new crushing machine-y of what might with propriety he termed tbe Gawler and Barossa Crushing Company. The large number of visitors from Adelaide, Gawler, and tfce sur rounding districts showed the interest felt in this long-wisbed-for event. From all I can learn, there seems to be bet one opinion amongst the diggers-that the result reflects the highest credit upon the directors, mar.ager, contractor, and workmen. Our respected post master, Mr. Soebels, exhibited a handsome cake of gold, over 50 ounces in weight, on Friday, and again at the dinner on Monday. He pur chased it of Hulbert, Watts, and party. The parcel was obtained, together with several ounces of loose gold, from 46 tons of cement, out of tbe last and poorest part of tlieir claim on Victoria Bill £imcox and party, Goddard's Hill, have just ha...

ORIGINAL POETRY. CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
ORIGINAL POETRY. i CHRISTMAS. Old Father Christmas now agaiu Comes jovial o'er the plains, And with his eleefui merry face, Sweeps backward all our paius. Around the poor man's dwelling he A biilliant halo throws; Wfcat gift so kind can mortal give As this which he bestows ? He makes the desolate and lone Awhile to mock the pain That gnaws his vital sinking heart, And makes it leap again. He peeps within the farmer's door: "Be happy now," says he; " Ne'er mind the harvest, nor the crops, While I remain with thee. " Cast back dull care and Bad regrets, Vexation, dread, and gloom ; Short is our passage, hand in hand, Ere sink I in the tomb. " That tomb old Time has carved for all, Which bears * Oblivion's' name ; That holds the records of each day, And seals them all the same.' "Then bang your halls with hol'y bush, Plucked freshly, green, and brightj Let mirtletoe your rooms adorn ; Both young and old-delight!"

ARMAGH SCHOOL EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
ARMAGH SCHOOL EXAMINA TION. We had the pleasure on Friday last of being present at tbe public examination of this school, conducted by Mr. Crosby. Shortly after tbe hour appointed (1 o'clock) the visitors gra dually commenced taking their seats, tbe children, numbering 85, being ranged in order at their desks. A little delay here occurred on account of the non-arrival of the examiners, the expected chairman, Dr. Webb, having been detained upon urgent business How- ever, shortly after half-past 1, Dr. Bain arrived, and took possession of the post. E.B.Gleeson, Esq., through indisposition, was unable to attend, and the examination was proceeded with under Dr. Bain till about 4 o'clock, when that gentleman being obliged to leave through calls of his professional duties, Dr. Webb, who had been present about half an hour, took the seat vacated by him. The first class of children that were examined were those of five years and under. We thought them rather backward at grammar, but very go...

SUMMARY OF NEWS. The Karl of Derby died at Xnowsley on the 23rd, after about a fortnight's ilibm, from gout. Lord Stanley succeds to the Earldom.

MONDAY'S DUST STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 December 1869
MONDAY'S DUST STORM. On Monday last we were visited with one of the most terrific dust storms that even old colonists can remember to have witnessed. During the morning a hot northerly wind had been blowing; which gradually increased in fierceness as the day grew on, and the heat - though the thermometer did not rise to the height that it indicated on Tuesday week - was felt by all to be very depressing, the hot blasts of wind reminding us of the well-known siroccos of the East. About half-past three, a heavy black cloud was seen throngh the already dusty atmosphere northward ol the township, swiftly approaching its confines, which shortly afterwards burst upon its astonished inhabitants like a continued fire of minute musketry, driving every article exposed to its power and of a light nature swiftly before it. Shopkeepers in vain closed their doors, the density of the dusty atmosphere even finding its way beneath them or through crevices or other entrances into their shops. During ...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 31 December 1869
MISCELLANEOUS. THE COLONIAL YOUTH DIFFICULTY. -Two little girls, about eleven years of age named M'Gee and Hayes, were found, on Sunday night, in a state of intoxication, in Bouverie-st., Carlton, at about ten o'clock, and surrounded by a crowd of the young blackguards of the neighborhood, who are supposed to have procured and administered the drink to the girls. Constable Armstrong immediately on perceiving the state of affairs, took the girls to the watch house, and they were so overcome by the drink that they had almost to be carried thither. When brought before the court on Monday they would not I state where they had got the drink, or i were perhaps unable to say, and the mother of M'Gee stated that she be lieved it had been procured from the back of the Carlton brewery. Con stable Armstrong stated, however, that this was not at all likely, as the place where the girls were found is half a mile from the brewery, to which access could not be obtained at the back, and he believed...
