MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
MISCELLANEA.. Sir John , a very small man, made a bet with Lord C , who weighs near 300®, that he would carry him twice round the hippodrome at Brighton. A large number of ladies and gentlemen attended to witness the proceedings. When the giant and pigmy met, the latter said, " Now, my lord, I am ready. Take off your clothes." "What! strip myself? You don't mean it ? " "I bet to carry you, but not a particle of your clothes. Come, let's proceed. It won't do to dis appoint these ladies and gentlemen." But my lord refused to submit to these condi tions. So the referee decided that Sir John had won the bet. " I am a charitable man," said Brother Stiggias, "and tbink every one entitled to his opinion. I never have selfish malice against my foes-not even against Mr. Mulberry, who has indirectly called me a si? ner; but still, if the Inrd has a thunderbolt to spare, I think it would be well bestowed on Mr. Mulberry's head." YANKEE PORTRAIT OF JOHN BULL. An American writer says-"John Bull ...
GOLDEN GIFTS. CHAPTES XXXI. THURZA IN TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
OOLDEN GIFTS. o - BX THE JtUTHOB OF "MAEIAJT:" " TEEMOJTT TALEETC.. ETC. CHAPTES XXXI * THITEZA IN TB0UB1E. OKCE again, and amidst cheerful companionship, Edith "Wallace ?drank in the sea breezes, and revelled among the waves as they laslied and foamed upon the shore. It was then she liked them best-when they rolled in with foam and dash, curling in white crests, and scattering their frothy spray around, when the breeze was strong and the waters dark and wild-though she rejoiced in it in all its phases, whether storm or calm, and the colour glowed more strongly in her cheek and on her lip as she strolled xip and down the beach with Thurza, or with Lindly; for he often came to share their solitude and society. Very pleasant days these were; more pleasant still when Martin "Wallace made a fourth in the party. There was then no jetty, stretching its huge length into the sea-a promenade to invite the fashionable lounger-but the beach, the firm, hard sand, the wave-washed shore, that was...
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, January 24th, 1868. THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, January 24£h, 1868. THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. This vast territorial acquisition, the obtaining of which was made the occasion of jubilant outbursts in this colony, and of somewhat envious feelings in the sister colonies, has proved to be really of the same value to us as the traditional present an Indian rajafc^ of a white elephant to an European geiMeman of limited means. Like that unfortunate individual, we have possession of the much-desired treasure, but j experience has proved it to be a luxury far tooexpensive torour limited means; and the sister colonies may well afford to let feel ings of pity displace those of envy which formerly prevailed. Whether it was that the Ministry of the day-untaught by the lessons which the history of the colonization of even our own land conveys-imagined that a suitable site for a city was to be discovered by in tuition, and that surveys could be carried on iu a tropical clime, with tropical ver- I Jure, as easily as on ...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868

A fitter, named James Toppin, deposed that about I o'clock on Satur day, as he was passing the tarn known as 'Lett's pond' he heard a shriek, and, looking over a wall, he saw something in the water. He ran to see what it was, but could not tell until he reached the edge of the pond, where be found a woman's veil, a pair of kid gloves, and an oranara on tbe bank. He saw babbles rising about three yards from the edge of the pond, aod waited about three minutes, expecting to see the body rise to the surface again; but it did not. Seeing two men eotning up the field, he sammoned them and told them that a woman had gone down in the water....
OUR REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
OUR REPRESENTATION. _The time is fast approaching when the District of Light will have an opportunity to make another effort for representation in the House of Assembly; and experience has taught us that we cannot take this subject too early into consideration. It is one, too, which requires our most earnest attention, for it is evident that our moral and intellectual status in the Legislature of the colony not only involves the dignity of the district, but also largely affects its progress and prosperity. During the first few months of the last Parliament, the district stood prominently forward, and promised well to receive a Governmental recognition commensurate with its importance. It was then a living entity, with some pretensions to respect; for, being represented by at least one member, it could be said to enjoy the fractional part of a Parliamentary existence. But when that member left for England, the District of Light rapidly subsided into the hapless condition of a dead no...

Bennett Treloar surrendered t J his bail on a charge of assaulting Police-Trooper Campbell. Mr Benham said the prisoner was committed on the minor charge of hindering the police, whereas now he was charged with assaulting the police ; he protested against such alteration. Police-Trooper Campbell was examined by Corporal O'Brien, and recapitulated the evidence given by him at the preliminary investigation, which we fully reported at the time. By Mr Benham-It was starlight at the time of the assault; some other people were there at the time; was on duty, dressed in private clothes; when witness took Hockin, Treloar rushed out and told him not to take him; some one whom he did not know came out immedi ately after; witness had the prisoner Hockin in the gutter; that was more than six feet from the door; it was towards Churchett's; could see a lit...
KADINA. January 21, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
KADINA. ("From our own Correspondent.! January 21, 1868. The weather daring the past week has been very unseasonable, heavy storms of wind and rain having predominated. On Sunday 12th inst., a very interesting service was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, the occasion being the baptism of two aboriginals by tbe Rev. N. J. Kuhn, Moravian Missionary. There was a crowded congregation. The Revs. G. W. Patehell, W. Wilson, and A. Miehie, took part in the proceedings. The Kurilla Mine which ceased operations some two years ago, is now being re-worked under the superintendence of Captain Anthony. A disastrous fire broke out at Wallaroo on Saturday last, on the premises of Mr H. Dean, grocer; the loss is reported to be about £1,500. Business continues veiy dull, and from all we can- see at present, there is not much likelihood of improvement.

LOCAL COURT-KAPUNDA. MONDAY, JANUARY 20. [Before J. S. Browne, Esq., S.M., and W. Oldham, Esq., J.P.,] INTERPLEADERS. WHITE V. R. ST. GEOBGE. Mr Emerson (for Mr Brady) for the execution creditors; Mr O'Halloran (for Mr Daly) for the claimant, Mr C. St. George. On Mr O'Halloran rising to address the Court, Mr Palmer stated that he had searched the Supreme Court and bad not seen Mr O'Halloran's articles. His Worship said he had, with the Judge's signature; he did so to satisfy himself. Mr Palmer stated that he had had no personal feeling in mentioning the matter; but did so on professional grounds. Mr Emerson took a preliminary objection that the particulars of the claim had not been lodged with the Clerk five clear days. Mr O'Halloran admitted that; but said that the twenty-seventh section of the Act raised the point, that unless the Court was full it had no jurisdiction, and this was not a Full Court. Mr Emersonhad no objection to that argument, and certainly should not reply to it....

THE FIRE BRIGADE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 January 1868
THE FIRE BRIGADE. TO THE EDITOR. .sir-irrom time to time you have advocated in your journal the establishment of a Eire Brigade, and had a like amount of spurring-on been given in any other township, the formation of a brigade would ere this have been un fait accompli. But a perfectly apathetic indifference to all preven tative action appears to be the normal state of things in this place, from which the people are aroused only, by what in newspaper language is chronicled as a " Providential escape" from some woeful calamity. It is so in matters political as well as social-very little pains is taken to secure good members, but the constituency becomes wonderfully exacting in respect to every man doing his best to return only good members after the bad ones have been acctuall returned. And so in respect to the Fire Brigade-when a timber yard is ail but burnt doirn, and the uselessness of insurance policies fully demonstrated, there is a strongly-excited feeling manifested in favour o...
