A STORY IN HIGH LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
A STORY IN HIGH LIFE. The Sydney correspondent of the Mel bourne Herald has telegraphed to that journal the following sensational story :—"It is stated that a serious social difficulty in high life has just ended in one of Het Majesty's Australian colonies—not New South Wales. The whole affair, it seems, arose out of several Ministers of the Crown being bachelors. As usual, His Excellency's advisers were frequent visitors at Government House. The Governor had a very handsome and attractive daughter, and two of the bachelor Ministers were captivated by her charms, and both visited the viceregal residence for the purpose of seeing the young lady more frequently than the Governor anJ his lady cared for. The Governor's daughter, however appears to have been placed in a dilemma, and not being able to mate up her mind, encouraged both suitors. Both gentle men were hardly pressed, for they could not but be sensible to the advantage of allying youth and wealth and good station to politcal p...

THE END OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
THE END OF THE WORLD. Humanity knows no more of the the pro bable duration of its existence than does any one us of the number of years he has yet to live. Are we at the soup or at the nuts; Who can assure us that the coffee is not soon to be served ? The world has had a begin ning, therefore it "will come to an end. When? That is the question. And above all, "will the world finish by an accident, by a perturbation of existing laws ? Ho, it will come to an end through the action of laws already ascertained, and will die, as one says, of her own death. But of what sort of death ? Age ? Illness ? Xes, of illness, of ilness induced by excess. When we compare the world with what it used to be, we at once see that the most extraordinary development is that of organic life upon the globe. From the highest summits of the mountains to the profoundest depths of the valleys, millions upon billions of animalcules, of ani mals, of superior plants, have been toiling for centuries, even as toiled...
NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
I | NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. " 33 and J."—With reference to tlie ques tion as to the manner in which the adjective " sick" may be compared, we find that whereas the rule laid down allows of the use of the expression " sicker" and " sickest," jet, as the ear, or euphony, is held to be the best guide in such cases, these expressions are certainly not the most desirable.
PIUS IX.'S LOVE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
PIUS IX'S LOVE STOBY. "From the manuscript of a forthcoming volume, the work of a picus Catholic lady, the daughter of one of the oldest Catholic citi zens of Baltimore, the late David Williamson, of Lexington Manor, the London correspon dent of the Cincinnati Inquirer relates the only true love story of Pius IX.. as related by the Baroness de Kinsky, the Holy Father's intimate friend. The young Count Giovanni Mastia Feretti, the story says, a native of Sinigaglia, met and loved at Some Camilla Devoti, the lovely and accomplished, daughter of a widow lady, and to whom he had been especially drawn by her marvellous singing. They read the poets together, and it came to pass that the young nobleman desirei to be a soldier to be more worthy of his promised bride. He . applied to Prince Barberini, Commander of the Papal Body-Guard, and was repulsed somewhat rudely with the re mark that his slender frame was better fitted for a priest's garb than a dragoon's. The young Count appealed toth...

The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1878. THE APPROACHING GENERAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
Wife Hauuittta fremiti. TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1878. THE APPEOACHIJSTa GENERAL ELECTIONS. At the time of writing we are not aware of the precise date at which the ensuing elections will take place ; nor do we know in what darticular batch the Light, Wooroora, and. other adja cent districts may be placed, though we believe our own district will be in cluded in the second batch. We do, however, know that it cannot be long before the electors mil have to exer cise the prerogative confided to them of ma,Icing choice of those who are to represent thein in the House of As sembly for the next three years. Iil connection with the exercise of this right there are two errors, one or other of which is apt to be fallen into. There are those who begin to agitate the subject so early that ere the elec tion actually takes place its chief in terest appears to have lapsed, and in difference thus gradually steals over the minds of those who a short time pre viously took a lively interest in elec toral af...
