THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, December 27th, 1867. BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 27 December 1867
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, December 27th, 1867. BUSH FIRES. It is to be generally noticed that men are most prone to give their careful atten tion to closing the stable door after at least one horse has been stolen therefrom ; and in like manner, now that the bush fires have again commenced their disas trous work, and that on so large a scale, ; there may possibly be a disposition on the j part of those concerned to do what they I can to pi event a recurrence of such fearful visitations as those which have lately proved so destructive all around Kapunda. We some time ago directed special atten tion to this subject; but the urgent neces sity of not leaving undone anything which may tend to create a more watchful spirit j on the part of the farmers and the exercise of greater care by travellers, furnishes ; good grounds for again alluding to the subject. And in the first place, it appears to us that the farmers and squatters should make it a sine qua -non in ergaging their hands that...

CORRESPONDENCE. A CHRISTMAS BOX FOR THE MEMBERS FOR LIGHT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 27 December 1867
CORRESPONDENCE. A CHRISTMAS BOX FOR THE MEMBERS FOR LIGHT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-On tho 15th inst., Mr. Rounsevell in the House of Assembly asked the Commissioner of Public Works if he knew what stops had been taken to survey the road between Kapunda and Truro, slating that he had several times mentioned the matter, and he wished to let the inhabitants know that the subjcct was receiving attention. That was very considerate, and ought to be borne in mind at the next election; but it seems strange if he had mentioned the subject several times that he did not know something about it. For his in formation I will state that the road was surveyed about the middle of July last. Our Members are about equally matched in their information about that rood, as Mr Coglin was re quested to try and get it put on the schedule of main lines; instead of that he asked the Parlia ment to grant £500 to expend on the road before there was a road to expend it on. Mr. Bright recollected the bright trick ho d...

UNCLE TOBY TO HIS NEPHEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 27 December 1867
UNCLE TOBY TO HIS NEPHEW. My Dear Tim " The old year lies a dying," and in Kapunda, as in other less remarkable places, sage men are preparing to dance a cor roboree over the fieeh grave of another grand division of Time. Accounts are now being examined, books are being balanced ; and, deapite the ravages of red rust, and the glare of the fuuereal flames which solemnize the departure of 1867, the people of Kapunda will make merry, and look forward with hope. Indeed many aerial structures may now be seen floating before the imaginations of my fellow-townsmen-visions of wealth, social dis tinction, political power-visibns fashioned by arrogant folly from the miasma of hypocrisy, deceit, and respectable commercial villanv which pervades all society at the present time, but is not peculiar to any given locality-visions des tined to be ruthlessly demolished by tbe yet dim and shadowy but still inexorable future. But, my dear Timothy, I had almost forgotten that we have nothing whatever t...
THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 27 December 1867
THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. Fenian alarms have been spread in almost every part of the country. It has seemed as if drillings and other preparations for a regular revolt have been going on almost in open day; and we give in the paragraphs some of the state ments that have appeared in the journals. There is a vein of exaggeration in most of them. The Daily Telegraph published on O'tober 16 the following sensational announcement-" A Volun teer Armoury Sacked.-Reepham, Norfolk, Tues day night. At midnight on Monday, a Fenian mob attacked the armoury of the 12th Norfolk Rifle Volunteers, situate-1 at Reepham. Sixty rifles and 10,»>00 Dall cartridges were carried away. Jt*istol shots were exchanged, some police men wounded, and the armourer in charge is mortally wounded. There is great excitement in the district. The Fenian* have retired to Foxley Wood, pursued Uy the police and volun teers, under the command of General Suctou. A troop of cavalry has been sent for from Nor wich." The next da...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. MONDAY, DECEMBER 30. Present-Councillors Bruce, Fry, Francis, Mellor, Nicholson, Nock and Rowe. In the absence of His Worship the Mayor, Councillor Nock was voted to the chair. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed; at which stage of the pro ceedings His Worship the Mayor entered the room and took his seat. Councillor Fry requested that his fine for non attendance at the opening of last (Council meet ing should be remitted, as he attended as soon as he arrived in the township. Councillor Nock seconded the proposition; "which -was carried. His Worship suggested that the fines for non- i attendance should be devoted to the formation of a poor's fund for the relief of extraordinary cases of distress within the town, for the relief of which the Destitute Board made no provision. Councillor Nock advocated the formation of such a fund, and would move that all fines levied on Councillors for non-attendance should go towards a poor's fund, togeth...
THE RUST IN WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 3 January 1868
THE RUST IN WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-The rust in wheat having now laid low the hopes of a bountiful harvest in the colony, from " Dan to Beerslieba," innumerable difficulties and inconveniences are likely to arise in connection with the. sale of what we have hitherto been ac customed to call the golden grain. It is unnecessary for me to state that it will be hard to tell the value of each different quality of | wheat. Already the corn merchant is puzzled to know what price to give for the varying samples that come to the market. One farmer, this very day, took a load of affected wheat to a dealer, who offered him 3/9; thinking it was rather a low price, he went further up the street, and 4/ was named by a buyer; he finally, however, got 5/4 for his grain. Mow, to prevent loss both to buyer and seller, would it not be advisable to appoint for the season of blight and failure one, two, or three arbitrators to give judgment as to the multitudinous value of the wheat which will now com...

RHYNIE. Wednesday, January 1, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 3 January 1868
BHYNIE. [From our own Correspondent.] Wednesday, January 1, 1868. The Camp meeting which took place at Long Gully on Christmas Day, in connection with the Wesleyan Church, was quite a success. The Bev. Mr Greer delivered two suitable discourses, and Messrs. Howard and Glanville also addressed the meeting. The results which hare followed theBe open air services must be very gratifying to the originators of the movement.' This being New Tear's Pay, the usual races took place. There was a great number of spectators present, and everything I believe passed off very quietly.
THE HANSBOROUGH FIRE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 3 January 1868
THE HANSBOROUGH MSB. TO THE EDITOB* Sir-Mr T. Pollok's statement, published in your last issue, saying that -when the fire broke out at Hansborougn " two shepherds and a man from the head-station stood at Burns's hut, and eaw the fire consume his wheat without offering to render any assistance/' is quite at variance with the facts, which are as follows The moment the fire was known at Anlaby I started off a waggon with every available hand, went ahead on horseback myself, and was the first person at the fire and Burns's hut, towards which it was rapidly approaching. The shepherd and his son were away, but shortly after returned to the hut, informing me they bad been patting the flock away in a place secure from the fire; and as I saw them coming my waggon with the men was approaching. Not one moment was lost before the fire was attacked under my direction, commencing at the nearest point. £ divided my men into two parties, one beating it out to the north, and the other to the south....
CORRESPONDENCE. WANTED, A CORN MARKET. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 3 January 1868
OOJRRES PONDENCE. WANTED, A CORN MARKET. TO THE EDITOR. Sir--Whatever be the opinion regarding the state of our crops, good, bad, or indifferent, the buyers of wheat are as much at sea as regards the value of it, as may have been seen at any time of the day. Last Saturday one of my neighbours took in twenty-five bags, which weighed 106| bushels, no light weight for this season of the year; leaving his team in one of thei bye-streets, he started to have a sight of your paper-there it stated 3/6 to 6/ for new; 7/ for old. Of course he being an old farmer knew that meant according to sample. Calling at the top of the street at Mr Nock's got the offer of 4/9; at Mr Pollard's 5/ was his offer; going still further down he met Mr Fascoe, showed him the sample, who, turning it over two or three limes, asked whether what was in the bags was as good, and on the promise that he was to have the load for nothing if there was any difference, made the offer of 5/6. Well, thought our I ignorant far...
