CRICKET MATCH. AUBURN V. KAPUNDA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

CRICKET MATCH. AUBURN Y. KAPUNDA. Ou Wednesday, 12th 'insfc., a cricket match was played at Kapunda- between the above: named clubs. The weather at the time the Auburn tfam started (about 6 o'clock) was somewhat boisterous, but certainly not what it was when they were half way on the journey to Kapunda, when hot winid9 and clouds of duet< met them in every direction, .aising a doubt whether they would proceed or not; however, when they considered that the match was the result of their own challenge, and for other reasons, they resolved to push on. They arrived at their destination about ten o'clock, and shortly afterwards proceeded to the grounds of j the Kapundeites, situated about half a mile from Kapunda. Here, kowever, the weather was extremely unpropitious-the wind was blowing tremendously, and the dust rendering it quite impossible to commence playing. It was therefore resolved to return to Kapunda* and should the weather appear more favorable, then to return. At ab...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

Site glrjgtts. FRIDAY, JANUARY 21,1870. THE residents of Clare and those whose business or occupation compels them to be frequently in the town will be highly gratified at the decision of the Municipal Council at their last meeting in reference to the stench proceeding from the butchers' establishments, caused by constantly slaughtering sheep &c.j on the premises. The subject was brought forward by one of the Coun cillors and thoroughly discussed, re sulting in a motion being passed to the effect that slaughtering licences would not be granted to the butchers, and in future they would have to kill outside of the town. This is one step in the right direc tion for the comfort and health of the public, although at a trifling inconve nience to the butchers, yet they can scarcely demur against the decision, inasmuch as they will derive a share of the benefit attached to it. But there are other nuisances equally as bad, if not worse, than the stench from the butchers' yards, which...

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. The mail arrived in Adelaide on Wednesday. The following is a condensed summary from the Adelaide dailies: GREVILLE & CO.'S TELEGRAMS. London, December 7.

MINTARO. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

MINTARO. (FBOM OUE OWN COBBSBPONDBNT.) January 12. On Tuesday afternoon, the 11th inst., be tween 3 and 4 o'clock, Mr. E. O'Loughlin's house, near Mintaro, was found to be on fire. The cry of M Fire! fire!" soon brought a num ber of people together, who exerted all their powers to toy to rescue the furniture, but, un fortunately, little was saved, as the fire pro ceeded from the inside of the house, and the roof being a thatchod one, the whole building was soon in flames. . The general report is that it was caused by one of the children playing with lucifer matches, which I believe is true. Parents generally should learn from this sad circumstance that they cannot be too careful in keeping lucifer matches from their children. Fortunately for Mr. S. Robinson, who lires on the opposite side of the road from Mr O'Lough lin's, the wind was not blowing very strong, or his place would undoubtedly have been de stroyed also. As it was, the sparks found their way across the road; but being p...

ROCHESTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 17. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

ROCHESTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 17. Since my last report we have been visited by a terrific thunderstorm, which appeared to be directly over this neighborhood. It rained hard all Monday night, completely flooding the ground and creeks; large trees were carried away by the stream in the Magpie Creek, also j several fences. I hear one farmer had some! wheat washed away, but what quantity I am; not prepared to say. Several farmers are leaving here until next ploughing season, a greater part having farms elsewhere. I have not heard of one case of the farmers being dis-; heartened on account of the failure of the crops, all seeming to have for their motto<f Try again." We have had q*.ite sufficient proof that the land will grow wheat, as 20 bushels per acre acre has been taken off in former years. The country around is getting part fenced in, and begins to present an agreeable appearance in the shape of homesteads and roads. Reaping has quite finished, and the...

OPENING OF THE FORESTERS' HALL, WATERVALE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 21 January 1870

OPENING OF THE FORESTERS' HALL, WATERVALE. For many years past the inhabitants in and about Watervale have felt the want of a public building wherein to hold their convivial meet ings, concerts, soirees, &c., in the township, there being no place but the schoolroom, which is of email dimensions, and not at all suitable for such purposes. As the requirement became more apparent, the Foresters determined to erect a hall, where their usual meetings could be held without any inconvenience as regards room, and being away from a public-house, it would be doubly advantageous. A few of the members of that body consequently set to work, and very soon a committee was formed willing to uudertake the task. As soon as the move ment was made known, help from other quar ters was quickly forthcoming, and ultimately a piece of land situated nearly opposite Mr. Davies's Hotel was selected and purchased for the purpose. The land being obtained, prepa rations weie made for the erection of a goo...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870

MISCELLANEOUS. A SHARK'S DEVOTION,-At a harbor in Jamaica two sharks were frequently seen prying about the ship. At length the female was killed, and the desolation of the male was excessive. What he did without her remains is a secret, but what he did with her was clear enough, for scarce was the breath out of his Eurydice's body when he stuck his teeth in her and began to eat her up with all possible expe dition. Even the sailors felt their sensibility excited by so peculiar a mark of posthumous attachment, and to enable him to perform this melancholy fluty more easily they offered to be his carvers, lowered their boat, and proceeded to chop his better half iu pieces with their hatchets, while the widower opened his jaws as wide as possible and gulped down pounds upon pounds of the dear departed, as fast as they were thrown to him, with the greatest delight and all the avidity imaginable. 1 make no doubt; that all the time he was eating he was tho- j roughly persuaded that every m...

The Honthern Argus. FRIDAY, JANUARY 28,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870

FRIDAY, JANUARY 28,1870. AT the present time a considerable amount of excitement is prevailing here, caused by certain individuals, who possess a considerable quantity of land in the east and north-east part of the district of .Clare, wishing to sever that portion from the other, and who have presented a memorial to the Go vernment to that effect, stating as their reasons that they have paid ratefe to the District Council for a period of sixteen years, and have received hut very little benefit therefrom ; also, that they have not the power to elect a local representative to look after their inte rests ; and that the land in their locality differs so much from the rest of the district, that that reason alone justifies diem in making the request. The land the memorialists are praying* to be separated from the other portion of the district commences at the south eastern corner of Section 203, in the Hundred of Clare; thence along- the southern and western boundaries of the said section...

Racing days are a great attraction in these out-of-the-: way places, a6 it is marly ail the sport tkat Is _ seen"or heard of during the year 5 therefore, it is not to be wondered at that a large number congregate together on such occasions.

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 27. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870

AUBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 27. Very little wheat is making its way into this market yet. I suppose the farmers are holding it, anticipating better prices, which are un doubtedly much needed, taking iuto considera tion the very small yield they have obtained, this season; although some few have obtained an average of 10 to 12 bushels to the acre, the majority have only harvested 3 to 4 bushels per acre. I notice that those who have paid most attention to the proper cultivation of their soil, more especially those on a large scale, have secured the best crops. A very heavy rain fell yesterday, commencing at about 6 a.m. and lasting until about noon, which has been an agreeable change after the oppressive hot weather of late. The weather altogether has been unusually changeable and boisterous this season. The Presbyterians have discontinued holding services in the Town Hall, which is, I under stand, engaged by the Baptist Association. Waves that are harmless.-The wav...

THE DIGGINGS NEAR KOORINGA. (FROM OUR OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.) Kooringa, Jan. 24. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870

THE DIGGINGS NEAR KOORINGA. (FROM OUB OCCASIONAL COBBBSPONDBNT.) Koorinea. Jan. 24. The goldfields in this locality are causirfg-a great deal of excitement, and many are the colors which the various reports wear con cerning them, but as yet they hare not had much of a trial, as a great many of the diggers know but very little about the work before them and are easily disheartened. I will quote one instance, in which two trades men left this town, on or about the 12th inst., for the XJlooloo diggings, with the very good intention of showing the diggers how and where to find the gold, being well supplied with tools, food, &o., but minus a drop of the "crathur." On arriving at their destination their ardour was considerably damped on ascer taining that they would have to camp out in the open air. They, however, after passing a sleepless night on the hard ground, commenced work the following morning, and toiled very hard the whole day; but, alas! the weather was anything but fav...
