CORRESPONDENCE. LAW REFORM TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. It must be understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents imder this heading. + LAW REFORM. tO THE EDITOR. Sir—The leading feature of Local Court ad ministration is decentralization, or the bringing home to every man's door a simple, speedy, and cheap means of obtaining justice. The leading feature of Supreme Court administra tion's centralization, causing every suitor with his -witnesses to travel at heavy cost to the head-quarters of law—the Supreme Court. The Local Court system is supported by the common-sense of the people who have experi enced its benefits; the Supreme Court system is "supported by the lawyers who reap its benefits. Why should a, suitor have to travel to Adelaide, and employ an Adelaide lawyer, for the purpose of obtaining the payment of a claim o£ £150, when if £100 only is claimed the local tribunal can administer justice? Why should cases be tried in Adelaide when the suitors and witnesses live many miles distant...
FREELING. [From our own Correspondent.] August 8, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
FREELING. [From our own Correspondent.]] August 8, 1878. We are haying fine weather just now, and there is something in the air this morning which is very suggestive of early summer. A strong breeze, however, is blowing, giving premonition of squalls somewhere ahead. On Tuesday evening the good folks of Freeling were treated "to an inspection of Mr. Whyman's beautiful model of the Tabernacle which accompanied the Children of Israel in their wanderings through the Wilderness. Freeling does not afford a very good harvest for caterers for the public amusement. Some how the folks don't seem to care to be bothered with the excitement of novelty, and it strikes me that it would need something of a very startling nature indeed to induce them to come out in strong force. I guess the bump of wonder—if such a bump there be.— is not very largely developed amongst us. Taking this into account the Tabernacle drew a goodly number of visitors, more in fact than I had imagined it would draw. The We...
EUDUNDA. [From our own Correspondent.] August3. 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
EUDUNDA. [From our own Correspondent.] August3. 1878. Since my last there has been but little doing out here in any kind of business, and I think tilings will be very dull indeed till .harvest comes round again, as the greater part of the farmers here have the greater part of tlieir wheat carted. Certainly there are a few who have not yet disposed of the whole of last year's crop, and they are doubtless grieving now for not having done so; and theie are also numbers who stored their wheat when 5s. 3d. could have been obtained who are now setting at 4». 3d.—rather a heavy loss, if yon can call it such. The weather is glo rious for the crops—line showers falling occa sionally, and consequently the wheat and grass in this neighbourhood are coming on remarkably welL Considerable indignation is felt here against the Legislative Council for their action in causing the Babbit Bill to be held over for six months, which our farmers consider is equal to shelving the Bill altogether. If the ho...
CORONER'S INQUEST. SUDDEN DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
COBONER'S INQTfEST. SUDDEN DEATH. An inquest was held on Wednesday last, at the residence of Mr. Patrick Coffey, near St. John's, by Mr. J. Elliott, J.P., into the circumstances attending the death of Catherine Coffey, who was found dead in her house that morning. There being no room available, the |inquest was held in the open air. A Jury of fourteen was sworn in, Mr. W. Crawford being elected Foreman. The Jury having viewed the body, the following evidence was taken:— Patrick Coffey, farmer, deposed—Deceased was his wife, and was about 64 years of age. She had not been in good health for a number of years. In May last she went to Gawler to consult Dr. Popham. Deceased was as well as usual yesterday. She did not sleep in her own bed last night. Between 8 and y o'clock Bhe lay down on the floor in front of the fire. She put one pillow under her head and another under her body, and went to sleep there. There was no one present except deceased, wit ness, and a little boy. After deceas...

MARRABEL. [From our own Correspondent.] August 8. On Tuesday lost several families joined together to have a picnic at Peters HQ1, where they proceeded in carts and waggons at about 11 a.m. After the children had en joyed themselves at iiheir different sports for about two hours they were mustered together to have tea other refreshments, -when it was found that a little girl about five years of age, daughter of Mr. T. Penney, was missing. Parties were at once started off in different directions to look for the child but could not find her. Word was then sent to Marrabel, and between twenty and thirty men at once started out and continued the search until the moon went down; they then lit a fire and camped out until daylight next mor ning, when they again commenced the search, and found the child about 7 a.m., crying, under a tree near the flagstaff in Mr. Bos worth's paddock. Fortunately the night was not very cold, and the poor little child does not seem any the worse for her night...
ROBERTSTOWN. [From our own Correspondent.] August 5. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
BOBERTSTOWK [From our own Correspondent.] August 5. It is a long time since you heard from Robertstown, but the reason is that there is hardly anything doing worth mentioning. We have been favored like all other places with heavy rains, which has put quite a different aspect on nature, filling the lagoon, improving the crops, and cheering the farmers, who are in high spirits at the pros pect of a good harvest. A friendly rifle match took place on July 27, between the Watervale and Roberta town Rifle Clubs, and resulted in the defeat of the latter. The conditions were as follows:— Seven men on each side, seven shots at each range, and Wimbledon target. The weather was rather boisterous, and very unfavorable for the occasion. The following are the scores:— Watervai,k Clttb. Yds. -200 250 300 TfcL Capt. Sobels 28 23 19 70 M. Aitkim 23 25 17 65 J. Dennis 24 20 27 71 Y. Mayor 29 24 27 80 — Truecoth 21 13 16 50 J.

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, August 6, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
f — OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.]} Adelaide, August 6.1878. To-day bang ike birthday of H.R.H. Prince Alfred, is being generally observed as a public holiday, but, as usual on public holidays, the I inexorable fates have willed that at least one ■person in the community shall not enjoy that respite from work which others delight, but imust work, work, work for the amusement or : information of your readers. The postal arrangements are partly to blame for this, for sanely a letter posted on Wednesday ought to reach & place, reasonably considered, within inrdfe hours distance in time to appear in Friday's Issue, but such is not always the case. However, I took my holiday yesterday, I bo I must net complain. 1 Sow there is nothing new in political rnatten to write about except the issuing of the writ for tie election of four new members jrf tlw leegislatire Council. In addition to rffaeioifties I have before mentioned Mr. A. £,. Munj, and Mr. R. Smith, J.P., of...

WOOROORA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
WOOROORA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The ploughing match and show of horse stock in connection with this Society was held this year at Tarlee. The paddock selected for the ploughing was certainly not ell that could be desired. It was situated about a mile and a half from the township on the top of a hill, and the soil was a loose sandy loam, not by any means calculated to give the ploughmen a chance of showing good work. The attendance was not so large as might have been expected. The day was the same on which Messrs. Coles & Goodchild's Kapunda Monthly Market was held, and this caused many to be absent, who would other wise hare been present. There were seventeen ploughs at work on the ground — ten double furrows and seven singles. Each plough had to do half an acre, four hours being allowed for the double-furrow and six hours for the single in which to complete their allotted task. All finished in the time allowed. The work done was not what could be called fine ploughing, but t...
MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.] July 27, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 August 1878
MELBOUEKB. [From our own Correspondent.] July 27, 1878. Before entering upon to record, of last week's events you mil allow me to record my conviction that one of my letters has mis carried. At any rate I sent you a lengthy epistle by the Cuzco which should have reached you in ample time for publica tion on Tuesday last- 3?rom its non-appear ance in your issue of that day together with the fact that you made no mention of having j received it, I gather that the precious note has been miscarried—perhaps taken oh to England or some other outlandish part of the globe. Small consolation that is for my trouble you will own, when I tell you that I walked some three or four miles at nearly midnight to post it in time for her. How ever, worse misfortunes than that happen at sea, as the old sailors say, and for my part I am inclined to take it in a spirit emulative of Mark Tapleye, and be jolly and happy, even after that annoyance. Now to business. Just let me dispose of the Parliamentary bu...
MARRABEL. [From our own Correspondent.] August 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 August 1878
MABEABEL. [From our own Correspondent.] August 10,1878. A remarkable instance, showing the attach ment of the carrier pigeon to its native place, occurred here a few days ago. A gentleman's son residing here made a present of three carrier pigeons (one male and two females) to a schoolmate whose parents hare lately ire moved to Booleroo. They were carried up in a box, and after their arrival kept closely confined for five weeks. They were tlien let out for the first time on a Sunday morning, and were seen feeding together late on the same afternoon. On the Tuesday morning following their former owner was astonished to see one of the female pigeons that he had given away back again, and feeding quite comfortably with its old companions. It is thought that it left Booleroo on Monday and arrived in Marrabel the same day, for to all appearance it had been in the dove-cot with the other pigions all Monday night. The male parent of the same bird flew sixteen miles in fifteen minutes in En...
HAMILTON. [From our own Correspondent.] August 12, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 August 1878
HAMILTON. [From our own Correspondent.] August 12,1878. A meeting was held on Saturday evening last to re-organize the Temperance Society, which has*held no meetings for several months past on account of the Council of Education requiring a rental of two shillings for each meeting. It was resolved that monthly meetings be held in the Bible Christian Chapel. The following officers were elected for the next twelve months—President, Mr. E. Q-. Blesing; Secretary, Mr. Turner ; Trea surer, Mr. Smith ; Harmoniumist, Master J. S. Gold.
GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] August 12, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 August 1878
6AWLEB. [From our own Correspondent.] August 12,1878. The exhibition of Mr. Whyman's model of the Tabernacle in St. George's Schoolroom was fairly attended, and the history of the construction of the various parts was very interesting. It is to he exhibited at the In stitute on Thursday evening, and should be well attended. No doubt Kapunda folks will have a chance of seeing it shortly, as the lecturer intends going through the country districts. A meeting of ratepayers of .North Ward was held on Friday night last to consider the representation of that Ward, the late Coun cillor (Mr. Sanderson) having resigned on leaving Gawler. After some lively discussion the meeting was adjourned until Monday evening. Two or tliree candidates are ex pected to be brought forward, so that a close contest may be expected. A young fellow named Jones having more money than sense took the loan of one of Mr. H. E. Bright's horses (saddled) and rode up and down Murray-street. The owner on demanding the h...
NORTH-WEST BEND. [From our own Correspondent.] August 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 August 1878
I ======= i NORTH-WEST BEND. ([From our own Correspondent^ August 10, 1878. We are now experiencing a very agreeable change in the weather. The past week has been very fine indeed; two or three days it was quite warm. The river, which has risen four feet during the last month, is still rising. Several new buildings have been com menced during the past week, and some of those previously started are rapidly approach ing completion. The whole of the telegraph poles are now erected. The contractor for the new wharf has not yet put in an appear ance, but is shortly expected. f It has often been a wonder to me that our Post Office authorities do not introduce the American method of dealing with unclaimed letters, but perhaps the fault lays more with the general public. 1?he plan to which I allude is exceedingly simple—When letters are despatched in America the sender may, if he thinks fit, write on the lower left corner, on the outside of the envelope—If this letter is not delivered to wi...

AUBURN. [From our own Correspondent.] August 8, 1878. After an interval of a month., owing to wet weather, a meeting of the Band of Hope was held last Thursday night. Mr. D. Walters occupied the chair, and an excellent pro gramme, consisting of readings, recitations, and songs, was carried out. The Fife and Drum Band was in attendance, and played several tunes in a very creditable style. LaBt Sunday missionary services were held at the Bible Christion Chapel. Two sermons were preached by the Rev. J. Richards, of the Burra (formerly of Kapunda). On Monday evening a public meeting was held, when addresses were delivered by the Revs. T. Hillman and J. Richards. Mr. S. Day acted as Chairman. Mr. W. Hoeking, a veiy old and respected resident, died very suddenly on Monday night last. An inquest was held on the following day, when a verdict was returned to the effect that the deceased died from natural causes: and the Juiy censured the deceased's sons for not obtaining medical .aid sooner ...
DUTTON TOWN. [From own correspondent.] August 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 August 1878
DTJTT03ST TOWN. [From own correspondent.] August 10, 1878. The farmers are now wishing for a little fine weather after the abundant rains which we have had to enable the wheat to make a little headway, as the very cold cold weather has prevented the crops from showing much above ground. I am glad to see that an effort is at length being made to get a main road from Truro to Eudunda. Petitions are being signed for it, and it is to be hoped that they will be success ful. The district has a strong and just claim for the expenditure of some money in the way of improvement, as I believe almost if not the whole of the land in the Hundreds of Dutton and Neales have been sold, and up to the present time the Government have done little or nothing towards affording the pur chasers facilities for getting to market. On this account alone the settlers will have a reasonable ground to urge for a favourable consideration of their request. Our exceedingly wise Legislators of the Upper House seem to...
