AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870
AUBURN. (FEOM OITB OWN COEEESPONDENT.) January 11. The weather during the week has been ex ceedingly hot, especially since Sunday last, hot winds and dust raging almost unbearable. This day has very much the appearance of the awful duststorm experienced here on [December 20th. The rough weather has shook out nearly one half of the wheat, consequently the farmers are greatly discouraged in reaping their wheat to find such a small yield. Very little wheat has made its way into this market yet. Our Auburn Cricket Club started early this morning for Kapunda, to play a match' with the Kapundaites.

The following is a copy which was read by Mr. Palmer: " DEAR SIB-As the senior member ...

Six handsomely! dressed bridesmaids and a host of friends attended the couple to church. The bride was decked out in nuptial splen dour, the roadway was lined with carriages and greys, and the whole scene presented an imposing effect; the venerable gentleman led his bride up the aisle, and the ceremony of coup ling them began. All went quietly enough till the clergyman came to the sentence Will you take this man for your wedded husband V when she in a " I won't." She rose in an excited man ner, darted out of the Church jumped into a carriage awaiting her outside, in which was seated the idol of her choice \ of...
KAPUNDA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 6. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870
KAPUNDA. (FBOM ODE OWN COEEESPONDENT.) January 6. Sew Year's Day passed over in a very quiet way, very little amusement of a»y kind having taken place. The farmers are quite deceived in the yield of the crops, which have produced, not more than four bushels to the acre. Business is in a very depressed state, owing to the failure of the crops. Most of the machinists have to discharge a number of hands, which will throw many men out of work. A lecture was delivered in the Baptist Chapel on Monday laBt, by the Rev. Mr. Thornton, of Queensland; subject, "The New Zealand War: its Causes and Cure." A collection was made on behalf of the Baptist Chapel in Queens land.

SUFFERING IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 14 January 1870
SUFFERING IN THE BUSH. The report of a riding accident, fol lowed by the endurance alone in the bush of three whole days of terrible bodily suffering, comes to us ( Wagga Wagga Express) from the Burrabogte station. Early on a Sunday morning; a lad of about 17 years of age was en deavoring to run in a horse from an out-of-the-way part of the Burrabogie run, on which he was employed. In driving home the animal he had been in quest of he came upon a mob of wild horses, conspicuous amongst which was a savage entire, who suddenly charged down upon him, and hurled him from the saddle. The shock he sustained in falling, was so severe that his con sciousness left him, and when, after a long interval of time, his senses re turned, he found that his thigh had been broken, and that miles away from a human habitation he was lying, parched with thirst, helpless and dis abled, alone in the bush. Collecting his thoughts, and remembering the difficulties that the people of the station would have to...

GREAT FIRE IN MELBOURNE. (Condensed from the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870
GREAT FIRE IN MELBOURNE. (Condensed from the Australasian.) One of the largest fires known in j this city for many years took place on Thursday night, in West Melbourne, j first commencing in H. Mill's timber yard, the entrance to which is in Flin ders street, between William and King streets. The fire seems to have broken out at about a quarter to 10 o'clock. Mr. Mills left his yard at half-past 5 p.m., when all appeared secure. According to Mr. Mill's own statement, no man was left on the premises, and though a little fire might have remained in the stokehole, it was all perfectly safe. At the later hour named, a man was seen running from near where the engine house was, and gave the alarm of " fire." In reply to a questioner, he said that the fire broke out near the engine, and he was going to fetch the brigade. In less than 10 minutes the Insurance Fire Brigade was on the ground with their hose, reels, ladders, and other apparatus, and they were shortly afterwards joined by the ...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870
MISCELLANEOUS. A CUBE FOR MURRAIN.-In the Farmer of the 20tli of October, an in teresting account is given of an experi ment by Dr. Dewar, of his new cura tive, sulphurous acid. Four steeds were taken for manipulation from al herd which was being swept oft by the cattle plague, but, to show the severity of the test, two died in process of tiansport. The remaining two were exposed to every adverse influence ^ their food and fodder being obtained from premises which had recently been depopulated by the disease, and, except that the stables in which the animals! were kept were frequently fumigated with burning sulphur, nothing was done to arrest the disease, but rather j what might under other circumstances have increased it; yet within one week from this time, these two steers were the only survivors of a herd which had, not without reason, been the possessor's pride. u Such facts, isolated it may i be, and although only supported by corroborative testimony of a less defi nite charact...
THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Baroesa correspondent of the Gaoler Times writes as follows: " The diggings generally are dull; but- some are doiog well out of their cement. Some t rials have lately been made of the harder kind of cement, or more properly, ironstone conglome rate, and I bear the results are tolerably encou raging, but I do not think any great quantity has been tried as yet. If it should prove fairly payable, there are almost millions of tons »f the cement all over the diggings. The crush&lt; rs are going on merrily, and at present are fully employed. One party had 19 tons cru;.li&lt;d, and obtained 35 ounces. Ancther lot of 25 tons yielded less than any I have heard of only a little over six ounces. I expc ct soon to hear of a sew rush, for two miners came here yesterday to buy a tub and cradle. They said tbey had struck payable gold, but would not say where. If I bear anything more of the claim I will let you know next week. Many diggers have left here lately b...
