MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870
MISCELLANEOUS. A young lady named Ellen Moir was brought before the Bench at Edenhope, on Thursday last (says the Hamilton Spectator), charged with being illegally on the premises of a gentle* man some 30 miles from here. It appears that having conceived a violent affection for a young gentleman of the family, she had travelled from Adelaide, a great part of the way on foot, but only to find that her amour was not recipro cated ; and refusing to leave the premises, she was charged with trespass. The worthy magis trate sitting on the case no doubt thought it a pity to send her to gaol under the circumstance, and discharged her with good advice, impressing upon her the necessity of seeking a situation, and having ascertained that she had but little money, paid her fare in the coach to Hamilton, to enable her to look for service. AUSTCATJAN DIAMONDS.-By the last mail steamer Messrs. Flavelle Brothers and Roberts have received from their London house 20 diamonds, sent home by them from ...
MUTINY, AMONG THE MORMONS —EDITOR STENHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870
MUTINY, AMONG THE MORMONS -EDITOR STENHOUSE. - It is reported from Salt Lake City that mutiny in the camp has become so rampant that the convocation of the elders have telt it necessary to make examples of a number* of dangerous heretics by excommunication, and that Mr. Stenhouse, editor and proprietor of the Salt Lake Telegraph, is among the excommunicated. If this news is true, it is very significant; for Stenhouse's paper has heretofore been the Moniteur, the official organ of Brigham Young. If there is to be, howover, a general break-up of Mormondom in Utah, we have no fears of Stenhouse. He is a smart, industrious, enterprising man, and will be able to save himself from the wreck. Some eight or ten years ago he was a reporter on the New York Herald; but he wanted to be a Mormon, and so he set out for the promised land of Utah with a wife and five young children, saying he would get there if he had to take the little ones in a hand-cart. And he did get there, though he was compe...

THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870
THE GOLDFIELDS. From the letter of the Gawler Times BarosBa correspondent we take the following:-a To show that even Spike Chilly is not worked out, I may mention that a miner in fossicking about, there last Saturday picked up a specimen worth £9 or £10. The same day the Warden granted two prospecting claims, one on Moonta Sill, and the other in a gully near the old township. There are several prospecting- parties out, so that we may hope shortly to hear of some new discovery. Saunders and party are prospecting near Victoria Hill. Their shaft ia 30 feet deep, and they expect to bottom on or about Monday next. If they should strike payable gold, I have no doubt a large rush will set in. Another party is prospecting one of the hills near Q-reea G-ully, and the third party in the scrub, about a mile or so from Victoria Hill. The Kapunda Company also intend to send out a prospecting party in the beginning of next week. \ meeting of shareholders of the Xiord Vivian Reefing Company was he...
The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11,1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11,1870. WITH this issue terminates the first volume of this journal. It has now been in existence for a period of 12 months, and we cordially return our thanks for the patronage bestowed upon us by our subscribing- and adver tising friends during that time. The majority of our readers are aware that The Northern Argus was started under adverse circumstances $ but we were determined at the onset to overcome them if possible, and have succeeded to a certain extent. It has been hinted to us on more than one occasion that this journal was sometimes objected to on account of its diminutive size. In answer to that we may state that the population of Clare and Auburn-the places from whence we expected to receive our chief sup port-did not warrant an enlargement. However, as the population and trade in those and the smaller townships are increasing considerably-and, as a matter of course, the Districts of Upper Wakefield and Stanley are becoming of more importance-we feel ...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 11 February 1870
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. We (Argus) have Nelson papers to the 19th, Wellington to the 20th, Invercargill and Lyt telton to the 22nd, and Duoedin to the 24th ultimo. According to the latest advices from Tapapa, Te Kooti had offered to surrender himself on condition that he was not molested. The Government very properly refused to accept an offer accompanied by such a condition; This intelligence, which appears to be true must be taken as an indication that Te Kooti' position is not by any means so good as it hat latterly been represented. It is scarcely to b&lt; supposed that he would offer to surrender if b still possessed the means of carrying on th war, more especially with the countenance c the Waikatos. The fact appears to be that hf is now so closely hemmed in as to have littk chance of escape. He is encamped within a few miles of Tauranga. Our forces are rapidly advancing upon him from different directions, and as they are greatly superior-in point o number at least-any...
