PROLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
PROLOGUE. "The King is dead. Long live the &nbsp; King." With such a proclamation did the heralds publish to the people of England that one monarch had ceased to be ; that at the same moment another was. And the people shouted the echo "Long live the king." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; So we now come before you to &nbsp; announce that the Burra News is no more and to herald the arrival of the first number of "The Record." &nbsp; Kings nowadays are not absolute monarchs, but act rather as guides and instruments for carrying out the wishes &nbsp; &nbsp; of the people, and in that light we present our infant paper to you promising to make it an exponent of what is for your welfare. It may interest you to know what is the con- stitution of the new publication that you may form some idea of the con- fidence you may repose in it, and whether its reign is likely to be attended by beneficial...
THE WEEK'S PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
THE WEEK'S PARLIAMENT On Wednesday it was stated in answer to questions that the Quarantine Station at Torren Island was being created, the first &nbsp; portion to accommodate 250 persons would cost £3,500, and that Public Schools were not insured against fire, the Government being their own own insurers. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A Bill relating to Forrest legislation was brought in a read and first time. &nbsp; The second reading of the Real Property Act Amendment Bill was carried, the House in its wisdom (?) preferring to multiply Acts rather than to consolidate the law. We believe the Government alone are responsible for this. &nbsp; &nbsp; A very cool request came from Yacka on Thursday. The folk there think that the Government ought to take deposits, and interest as part of the purchase money. They will want tbe colony to lend them cash, with- out interest next. &nbsp; &...

EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
EUROPEAN NEWS The English telegrams published during the past week are, principally, records of the achievements of the Australian cricketers in England. Our representatives, or, rather, the representatives of the other colonies have not been quite so successful as at first ; a drawn game at Birmingham was followed by another at Leeds, and these by a signal defeat at Sheffield, where the Yorkshire eleven were victorious with nine wickets to spare The Duke of Manchester will preside at a banquet to the visitors on July 23rd. The Congress is still sitting at Berlin, and will probably continue its work about a fortnight, it will then adjourn for a few months, and meet in the autumn, to ratify the resolutions passed. It appears to have been decided that the war indemnity shall be settled by Russia and Turkey alone, but that Russia shall not seize any Turkish territory in the event of non-payment. Russia will take part of Bessarabia ; Herzegovina aad Bosnia are to be occupied by Austria ...
WAR AND MODERN THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
WAR AND MODERN THOUGHT. Some Russians, some three thousand miles from England, are doing some things which some Englishmen dislike. Therefore other Englishmen, at the expense of all Englishmen, shall deal with other Russians in the manner &nbsp; following ; that is to say : their houses they shall burn, their fields they shall lay waste, their families they shall ruin, their persons they shall tear with cannon-balls and pierce with rifle-bullets, and while they are lying on the ground — it may be in frost and snow — still living but helpless, they shall gallop over them with horses, breaging a jaw with one hoof and squeezing out bowels with another. That is war ! How long will modern thought permit it to be continued among civilized nations. Modern thought seems to be gradually tending in one or other of two directions, and two only ; namely the alternatives offered long ago as the only logical ones by the Author of The Analogy — Christianity or Atheism. And Christianity is ...
BURRA CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
BURRA CORPOBATION. (To the Editor) &nbsp; MR EDITOR — As a constant reader of your paper I am anxious to know who furnished you with the report of the Burra corporation dated June 25th I suppose it was sent by Town clark with a view of striking terror into tke poor unfortunate ratepayers for' everything seems of but little importance save Bailiff Rubbish! and distress warrants? This laconic[?] sentence is worthy of repetition "I have issued &nbsp; several distress warrants far unpaid rates!" indeed!! the non- ratepayers will certainly be very grateful for this peice of information as they did 'not kuow that the Town Clark had power to issue distress warrants and as we now have two shops at which we can procure these very fashionable articles I suppose that the competition will reduce the price and dis- tress warrants will become a local industry at the Burra my own impression as an outsider is sir that your worthy Mayor and councillors &nbsp; had much better ...
UNDER THE VERANDAH. BYSTANDER [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
UNDER THE VERANDAH. "Whatever men do, or think, or seem, Our motley paper seizes for its theme.' from Juvssau) An old Australian has gone to his last home. Few will grndge a need of praise to the memory of George Augustus Selwyn, first prelate of the order of St. Michael and St George, who has, in his ninetieth year, been gathered to bis fathers. He was chosen in 1841, to fill the arduous post of first bisho of New' £ alaai, and : laboured in that capacity, for six and twenty years. All honour to the man who elected to re tain that laborious and poorly paid office in face of a proffered appointment worth many times as much. What he declined, however, of his own free will, he accepted as a duty ordered by his sovereign. And the respect which he commanded during his ten years residence at Lichfield was evinced by the vast concourse of churchmen that assembled round his grave. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It was when he was -starting for his colonial see, that Sidney Sm...

SHORT HINTS FOR RAILWAY ENGINEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
SHORT HINTS FOR RAILWAY ENGINEERS &nbsp; (BY THE SECRET ADVISER OF THE BURRA AND HALLETT RAILWAY CONSTRUCTORS.) In laying out the line observe the following general principles, and combine the whole wherever practicable :- Choose the lowest ground you can, and carefully avoid all well defined &nbsp; watercourses, trying to keep so near the bed of the main creeks, that the side ones shall have gained as much strength, and became as widely spread as you be. Keep also as far as you can along side of the roads so as to drive traffic off them, or at least give the engine drivers and others a fair chance to turn on steam, or sound the whistle with greatest effect on the approach of restive horses, drawing &nbsp; loaded traps. A few extra crossings will add both to the length of the line, and the impracticability of the road, and will cause your name to be familiarly used by all travellers. &nbsp; &nbsp; Should the Government possess reserves, ...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
VARIETIES. An Irishman who went into church where the people came in late said it was "the fashion there, for nobody to go till everybody got there." Women first tempted men to eat; he took to drinking on his own account. A somewhat illiterate woman, having read or [sic - of] a simoon that "swept the plains," is urging &nbsp; her husband to get one of them new-fangled things for her to use in the kitchen. Travel-worn and seedy, he said . "Whew &nbsp; couid I get a square meal for 25 cents?" He was told. "I say, mister," said he, "where &nbsp; could I get the 25 cents. "How odd it is," said Pat, as he trudged &nbsp; along on foot one hot sultry day, "that a man &nbsp; never meets a cart going the same way as he is." Some one said to a parvenue, whose brother remained in poverty, "You are, I believe, the &nbsp; brother of M. Durand ?" "No, Sir, I am not &nbsp; his brother — he is mine." A woman recently entered a store, and sat d...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Correspondents are reminded that any letter not accompanied by the real name and address of the writer (for the private information of the Editor) will be consigned to the waste paper basket. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We shall as far as possible answer any ques- tions that may be proposed to us. "A Patient." We have made enquiries concerning the subject of your letter from some members of the Committee, and find that it has been usual to hear both sides of such cases. In tbe present instance, however, it was thought by the members of the House Committee who were present, that, it was better to discharge the servant because it would be impossible for her to work smoothly with her superior ; and that being the ground for dismissal it was not thought necessary to hear the defence. We think we have sufficient ground for stating that the proceeding was not in accordance with the views of the...
WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878
WATER SUPPLY. The water supply of towns is receiv- ing attention in high quarters just now, the Prince of Wales having requested the Society of Arts to commence an open discussion on the best mode of supplying the towns of England with water. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Under patronage somewhat less dis- tinguished the water supply 0f the Burra is being considered. A hydraulic engineer has visited us, levels have been taken, and we hear that it is the inten- tion of the Government to bring a supply of good water to our doors. &nbsp; &nbsp; It is difficult to over-estimate the value of a good and constant supply of pure water, especially where, as in South Australia, the rainfall is small and often interrupted by months of drought; and, &nbsp; although some of the strongly conserva- tive members of our community appear anxious to adhere to the old paths, we hope soon to hear of a good, practicable scheme being app...
