THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Advertiser reports as follows:-"The gold news is really getting sensational. There are various exciting accounts of the returns from the crushiDg of South Rhine quartz, or conglomerate, at the works at Mannum, but we are not in a position to state particulars. We understand, hovrevir, that a gentleman well acquainted with the South Shine claim has bought all the shares he could get hold of at 13s. Other reefs are being worked, and we; hope to hear of profitable results, though it is too soon to give a decided opinion. The next auriferous sensation is at the back of Mount Loftj, where upon private property, a company are working with the moBt promising results. For a depth of nine feet the colo* can be seen; the whole way by washing the stuff, and at the bottom there is a layer of waBh-dirt yielding gold in payable quantities. Such is the report from this mine, and the news has created some stir. * The great diecorery, however, is on the Oskaparinga, about two mil...
MOONTA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT) January 18. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 28 January 1870
MOONTA. (PEON A CORRESPONDENT ) January ]& I was very sorry to find from your issue of the 31et ultimo that the hot wind* had created such sad havoc in the crops in your neighbor hood; and should flour, as a consequence, become dearer, and the next mail show no improvement in the price of copper, the people here will be placed in a very sorry fix, com pelting us to seek employment from the Com missioner of Public Works (from whose tender mercies deliver us), or forcing us-however paradoxical it may appear-to the Destitute Board for the means of sustenance. During the summer we have had a great variety of weather-hot winds with Australian snow, followed by rain and cold winds in the short space of twenty-four hours, which made us long for a cooling draught from some of your delicious springs, and we would gladly have exchanged all the comforts (?) of our " pug" huts for the luxuriant shade of your noble gum trees, which, with a dozen or two of choice apricots, would have comp...

CLARE CORPORATION. Present-The Mayor,and Councillors Powell, Fels, Smith, antl Treleaven. The minutes of'last meeting were read and confirmed. A memorial Was presented to the Major, * signed by a large number of ratepayers, request iqg that a.street situated at the south boundary of Mr. "Fels' allotments, and adjoining the Travellers* Rest Hotel, should be given in ex change for one, already surveyed, more in the centre of the allotments, stating that they, the memorialists, considered, it would be more beneficial to the town than the former one.

Councillor Smith proposed, and Councillor ' Treleaven seconded, that the question be held over for a fortnight to allow them sufficient time to consider the subject. Adjourned accordingly until next meeting. A deputation attended the Council complain ing of the street situat...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 February 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. The Barossa correspondent of the Gawler Times writes as follows: Since my last I am happy to say things here look a little brighter.' The rush to Hissey's Gully is increasing, and prospects are slightly better j the gold being traced northwards in the direction of the paddock to the west of Pilgrim's. As it nears the private land the prospects improve. The diggers would be glad to get leave to mine on this property, but don't know to whom it belongs. A prospecting company was formed here on Saturday evening, and the first thing they decided on doing was to call for tenders for einking the shaft, already: begun, on the Lord Vivian Beef. A contract has since been taken to sink 30 feet at 7s per foot, after which, fresh tenders will be called for. Though the result of the quartz, crashed has not been very good, it is believed the reef will prove payable at a greater depth. It, is on the side of Spike Gully, not far from a large reef opened by the El Dorado Company, a gr...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. 1 " AN OLD VICTOBIAJT DIGGER" writes to us from Kooringa, complaining of our occasional ^correspondent's report of the Uiooloo diggings,, and says it is totally false, denies that there is any running water there, and says there never was the number of men on the diggings reported by him. Ai "An Old Victorian Bigger" de clines sending us his name, and as he does Hof^ state on what authority he denies the truth of our correspondent's letter, his gratuitous asser tion must be taken for what it is worth.
THE LATE CRICKET MATCH. (To the Editor of the NORTHERN ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 February 1870
THE LATE CRICKET MATCH, (To the Editor of the NOBTHEBN AEGUS.) Sib-My attention has just been called to a report of the cricket match between the Auburn and Eapunda Clubs, which appeared in your issue of the 21et January, some of the state ments in which, if left unnoticed, might leave altogether a wrong impression on the minds of the public with respect to certain matters which occurred on that occasion. I trust, therefore, you will allow me, even at this late period, to reply to some of them. I have not the slightest objection to the one sided way in . which the report is written throughout, for of course that is merely a matter of taste with yoir correspondent; no doubt he thought by making everything look as black as possible for poor Sapunda he was doing his eleven a good turn. What I object to is the paragraph respecting the dispute, and I think a more unfair and uncricketlike version could not well have been penned. It is true that Mr. Keats was given out leg before wicket, b...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 February 1870
mtftfn glrpji. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY i, 1870. WHAT are the future prospects of the agricultural portion of the inhabitants of this colony, is a question which even the leading men of South Australia constantly seek to evade. And whyv it tlrat this most important question js thus trifled with ? Is it simply because by interrogating' the matter facts would: probably be brought to light whicl*, would place a doubt in the minds o£ many as to the solvency of the colony I Or, is it because there are none who feel themselves capable of undertaking the difficult task of enlightening their fellow creatures on the point ? That the prospects of the farmers at the pre' sent period is anything but cheering all will allow. It is a notable fact that they have been retrograding for the last half-dozen years; and -yet they continue plodding along in their usual style, apparently, if not contented with their humble lot, averse to making an effort to retrieve their fortunes, but rely on the miserable chanc...

DOWN IN A DIVING BELL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 4 February 1870
DOWN IN A DIVING BELL. A correspondent of the Daily News gives on interesting account of a de scent in a diving bell. He describes the progress and works of the Ad miralty Pier at Dover, and explains how the work is. carried on under water. Princes of the blood have been denied the honor of a descent, but this writer obtained the estimable privilege. With regard to the dress he wore, the first important matter he explains is that whether it is the coal mines of England or Wales, the sewers of the city of London, or the bottom of the English Channel which you are about to explore, you must pull huge woollen stockings over your trousers, add a pair of thick overalls to these, divest your self of upper garments, don something scrubby and ticklish which is half j jacket and half shirt, and does duty for both, put massive boots with soles and ! side and tops as of cast iron, and crown i yourself with a hat which looks like a dish-cover oilskin. Thus equipped, I you are ready to meet your...
