The Nonthern Argus. FRIDAY, JANUARY 7,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 January 1870

FRIDAY, JANUARY 7,1870. THE slovenly manner in which the Local Courts of South Australia are conducted has been a theme for public gossip and private conversation for many years past, and unless altered will continue to be so for the future. That they are conducted on an unsatis factory system is manifest to all indi viduals, as many have suffered more or less by their present state. Every month some fresh circumstance arises to bring the subject before the eyes of the public, who are not always im partial judges, and consequently gene rally contrive to lay all the blame upon the unfortunate presiding Magistrate, and attribute every blunder that occurs to carelessness or want of foresight on his part. But it is not such an easy thing for a Magistrate to give a deci sion as is generally supposed. In the case of Ford v. Swinden on Tuesday last, the plaintiff's attorney applied for an adjournment, as a very important witness was absent-whether unavoid ably or not; was not ascertained. ...

WATERVALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 January 1870

WATERVALE. (FBOMOUB OWJX COSBXSPOKDEMT.) Januarys. The holidays bare now passed over, and I will give a brief resume of the way in which they have been spent. On Christmas Eve and a day or two preceding it there were unques tionable signs of approaching festivity, numbers of persons coming in from the surrounding country to purchase the necessaries for the time-honored pudding, as well as presents for wives, sweethearts, and little oneB. Christmas day dawned bright and cool, but with the exception of a solitaty flag at the Dispensary, the townBhip had all the appearance of a solemn fast, instead of the most joy ful feast of the year, the people other keeping within their own houses or going away to other places to enjoy themselves. On the Monday following business went on as usual, though a large party of young people went on a riding excursion, an annual custom here, known as the " Christmas ride." The 28th, the anniversary of the foun dation of the colony, was rendered lively by n...

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 January 1870

AUBURN. (FBOM OUB OWN COBBESPONDENT.) January 6. On Hew Year's Ere services were held in the Bible Christian and Wesley an Chapels, watching the old year out and the new year in. Imme diately after 12 o'clock the Chapel and factory bells were merrily ringing, and various the noises, such as guns crackling, tin cans, iron tanks rattling, and. room bells at the different dwelling-homes, denoting that the new year had arrived. New Year's Day was kept as a public holiday, all the shops being closed. Most of the plea* sure-geekew met on the flat in New Auburn, where foot-racing and other sports were entered into. Several of the Kapundaites patronised the sporting, but I believe that only, one of them was successful in obtaining a prize. The 100 yards race, three-legged race, and running high jump were well contested, those being most worthy of mention. The first was won by Claridge, closely pushed by Barker anil Edgecombe ; the second was won easily by Edgecombe and Barker, of Kapunda; a...

THE CLARE ARABS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 January 1870

THE CLARE ARABS. The young Arabs in the various metropolitan towns and cities of the Australian colonies have always been a source of difficulty. Children growing up from childhood to youth without occupation, naturally gets them into idle habits. In Hobart Town, very stringent measured had to be adopted to restrain their propensities for larking, it being carried on to that extent that the magistrates had to send two or three of these gentry to the house of correction for three months before the nuisance could be abated; and we often find that the Adelaide authorities are much troubled with these youthful aspirants to future fame; and although we admit that the boys of the townships of South Australia are not more vicious in their habits than those of the sister colonies, they are quite bad enough to be dangerous to the well-being of society. Only on last Monday a few young ladies from Auburn went to have a quiet picnic on the banks of our rural and picturesque river Hutt, on the s...

THE BLANKET FLAT MURDER. (Condensed from the Day lesford Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 January 1870

THE BLANKET FLAT. MURDER. {Condensed from the Day les ford Mercury.) The inquest on the body of Thomas Blakey, stabbed to death on Wednes day night, at Blanket Flat, ended-on Friday evening in a verdict of wilful murder against the wife, Elizabeth Blakey. The unhappy woman endea vored to persuade the police that the fatal woun<T^STi'SEcleiERSy deceased on himself.duringja scuffi£ with her, but the evidence-negatived this testi mony. The knife; such as butchers use, must have been driven home with fearful force, for the blade, after pene trating two thick shirts, actually passed through the breastbone into the heart. The surgical testimony was to the effect that deceased would have had barely time to utter an exclamation before life was extinct. The man who is dead, and the woman who will pro bably expiate her crime on the scaffold, kept a small alehouse of ibur or five rooms, on the top of the dividing rang© beyond Sailor's Creek. The pair have lived miserably, quarrellin...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870

THE GOLDFIELDS. Of Barossa diggings the Evening Journal reports as follows: u Both machines are now in full work; Messrs. Britcher Brothers are getting improved i appliances from Melbourne, and intend to keep up a spirited competition, nothing daunted by the proximity of the new and larger machine. The manager of the latter (Mr. Noltenius) expresses his entire satisfaction with the working of the company's machine, which he calculates will crush 200 tons 'per week. One lot of quartz has been crushed with rather poor results, but I am told that the owners hare: been shown that the gold lies in the jumbled and not the solid side of the ree£ Watson and party, of Goddard's Hill, report extraordinary rich stone in their reef, of which they will be j in a position shortly to convince all sceptics.

STREET ARABS. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870

STREET ARABS. (To the Editor of the NOBTHEBN ABGUS.) Sib-In your last issue you complain of the nuisance of the street Arabs of Clare ; and I am glad that we have the means of holding up to reprobation, through your columns, any of those who deserve the censure of the public. You regret the want of local manufactures; but if we do not get a remedy until they are established the evil will be of such long stand ing that I fear it will almost become chronic. A great deal could be dose if the parents were to look properly after their children. It is by the neglect of parents very often that children become depraved, and if we examine circum stances as to the formation of character, it will lead f» back to the creation, because the child's organisation Is transmitted to it at birth (or before, it you like), and that consists generally of a mixture of the nature of the parents-the influence, either good or bad, as the case may be, then acting on that organisation. However, if the parents ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. SUNDOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870

ORIGINAL POETRY. SUNDOWN. THE plotera chant the knell of parting day, Thy gentle sheep wind slowly home to thee, The sun sinks softly 'twixt those hills of grey, And the fullmoonNight's empress now will be. The curlew next trills forth her dismal cry, The murky bat darts through the half-dark air, Thy sheep in their well-known yard securely lie, And " Betsy" to her nook does lazily repair. Night's sentinel, the wild dog, next stalks forth, Piercing the stilly eve with horrid howl, Tracking the path of some poor cranky sheep, Whose blood he drinks with hungers savage growl, Then licks his gory jaws with grim delight, Dragging his swelled carcase, now without a seam, Promises to visit there again next night, Then sneaks to scrub by moonshine's watery beam.
