ROSEWORTHY AND FORRESTER'S RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 13 March 1868
ROSEWORTHY AND FORRESTER'S HAILWAY. It is now about twelve months since the first tender for the above railway was accepted, and as nothing has appeared before the public to give ^ny idea as to the progress which is being made in the work, we one day last week resolved to take a run over and see for ourselves. Our readers are no doubt aware that four contracts have been let on this line. The first and second-over comparatively level country-are finished, and in a fit state to receive the rails. The third con tract is now being carried out, and is by far the most important work of those yet let, so far as engineering difficulties are concerned, as it is one succession of cuttings, embankments, and culverts from beginning to end, extending over five miles, commencing in a paddock belonging to Mr. Shegnp38ience; crossing the Light, over which there will be a bridge thrown. (which by-the-bye ought to have a noble appearance when com pleted from the great height of the banks at this spot...
KAPUNDA AND LIGHT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S AUNUAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 13 March 1868
KAPUNDA AND LIGHT AGRICUL TUEAXi SOCIETY'S AUNUAIi SHOW. The annual exhibition in connection with the above Society was held yesterday in one of Mr. Crase's Wheat Stores, kindly lent for the occa sion. It had for some time previously been felt to be very doubtful whether there would be any thing like so good a show as was desirable ; when the intense hot weather of the preceding week set in that doubt was strengthened, inasmuch as it was certain that farmers would not care to work their horses or themselves more than was abso lutely necessary in such intolerably hot weather; that our vignerons and fruit-growers would Lave their produce completely scorched; and that be the dairy produce ever so good on leaving the dairy, the bacon would be half cooked, the cheese partially toasted, and the butter turned to oil ere ! they could be submitted for the approval of the Judges. Fortunately, however, the weather on Wednesday and Thursday, though still very warm, was comparatively cool; and t...
CLARE. Wednesday, March 11, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 13 March 1868
CLAJihi. [From our own Correspondent.] Wednesday, March 11, 1868 On Saturday last a meeting of Electors was held at the Town Hall; about 200 persons were present, and were addressed by Messrs. Kingston and Bright, as intending Candidates. The meeting was very noisy, and some two or three were present evidently for the purpose of opposing; and annoying Mr. Bright; hut they were-speedily put down by an almost unanimous show of hands in favour of that gentleman, as also of Mr. Kingston. On Monday and Tuesday evenings Signor Abeeco, assisted by Mr. Hedges, gave their enter tainment ; but owing either to scarcity of money, want of publicity, or some other cause, very few were present; but those who were appreciated the good playing on the harp. I am glad to see the contract is let for cutting through the hill at Donnybrook, and hope the contractor (Mr. Haynes) will at once make a start and push the work ahead before the wet weather comes on.
RIVERTON. March 11, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 13 March 1868
FUVEH.TON. | [From our own Correspondent.] March 11, 1868. Wednesday tlie 4th was our Full Court day in Riverton, but owing to tlie absence of Mr. Browne, S.M., and there being only one J.P. present, the Court was adjourned, muck to tlie vannoyance of several suitors, who had come from some distance to attend the Court. On Saturday last 7th inst., Mr. F. B. Oldham, commenced the first of his series of monthly sales here, which was well attended, and I think in future will be a decided success. There were some splendid fat cattle sold at moderate prices, also a number of horses, which went very cheap. Since then there has been nothing of any im i portance occurring here, until to-day when numbers hare passed through, en route for the Upper Wakefield Races. Some time since a meeting was held here to petition the Government to appoint another J.P., residing in the town, or at a convenient distance, the nearest J.P. being about four miles from this. A letter was received in reply from t...
ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. A 8 yet I have done scarcely more than note the fact of the eruption of Vesuvius, but so much has it increased since Wednes day last, and so marvellously beautiful is the spectacle, that it merits a more detailed report. Unlike those terrific displays which we have had at times, and which cease with one great effort, this is a lava eruption in creasing1 ever in force and beauty, and promising a duration of some weeks, if not months. If so-and it is the opinion of those most experienced in these matters all the world may see it as soon as the groundless fears as to the state of Naples have vanished. For the first one or two nights the mountain was modest enough in its demonstrations-tongues of fire shot up to announce its internal agitation, and a thin stream of lava trickled down behind in the direction of Ottajano, which lies on the south-east side of Vesuvius. Some friends who went up there early gave a vague idea of the scene, and spoke of eight or ten new c...
MOUNT PLEASANT. March 12, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
MOUNT PLEASANT. [From our own Correspondent.] March 12,1868. in my last I referred to several accidents which, had recently occurred, and I have an equally melancholy task in this communication, in narrating (did space permit) a long list of infant deaths from whooping-cough and measles; scarlatina is also spoken of in one or two in stances. There is but little wheat coming into the township ; though Mr. Giles, the miller, is get ting a fair share, considering the season. Publicans seem be the only class at present keeping up a trade; in proof of which a new wine-shop is going up in Blumberg. Many of our better-class farmers are disposing of their leases in order to go to the North or Albury. The electors at our end of the district are still as lethargic as ever. The talk at the other end seems to single out Mr. Hay for the first place. For tlie other vacancy opinion is much diyided, some standing by Mr. Ward, others up holding Mr. Robertson, and a good few appear willing to bestow ...
ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. The branch mail steamer -with the South Australian, portion of the January English mail arrived in the Bay on the morning of the 17th inst. The newspaper dates are to January 26, and the late telegrams to February 18. The following are extracts from the papers to hand, and from the late telegrams of the Adelaide papers: Before touching upon our own affairs, it is only proper that reference should be made to those of the readers for whom these lines are written. Such reference shall be brief. We-should find it difficult to give an adequate idea of the pleasure which has been afforded to the nation at home by the loyal and splendid reception of the Duke of Edinburgh by the Australian Colonies. We have as yet only a portion of the accounts, but we have more than enough to assure us that every thought and care was laid aside for the sake of according to the young sailor-prince a united and enthusiastic welcome, and of thus paying to our Sovereign the highest...
OUR DISTRICT POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
OUR DISTRICT POETS. OBIGENAL FOEIBT.-A correspondent has sent us two or three of the productions of his poetic genius, with a request that we would publish them. We must inform the rustic rhymster that he has mistaken his vocation; however we publish one of the least objectionable verses as a sample of the whole, partly to gratify our correspondent's desire to see himself in print, and at the same time to show our readers what delightful contri butions in "poetry" at times find their way into the Editor's box. The following verse is from "A morning's walk in the months of spring" : " The hills were green, the vales were sweet, The flowers did scent the ground; Everything was so complete, There was beauty all around. How mighty, wonderful, and wise Was the hand that did create The beauties of the earth and skies, Is more than I can relate!" We think our friend will excuse us for not publishing the other poems.
KAPUNDA RACES.—THE SETTLING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
KAPUNDA H. \ CEj3. -THE SETTLING. The settling for tlie above races took place at Host Wiltshire's, on Monday evening, on which occasion there was a moderate attendance of sporting men. The hour named for the settling was 8 o'clock, but the Stewards were engaged for a considerable period beyond that time iii arranging the accounts, and considering the various protests. The discussion of the Stewards on these matters was private; but we understand that a claim was Bent in by Mr. Mullins, the owner of Collingrove, protesting against the stakes for the Shorts being handed over to Mr. Adock, the owner of Lottery, which horse had been declared the winner by the Stewards in consequence of Collingrove having carried weight for a gelding in place of for a horse, though he had been entered as a horse, and the weight carried was tliat named on tlie card. We understand that Mr. W. G-. Morris the owner of the winner of the Forced Handicap also claimed that the entries in that race should be add...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1868. THE AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
|Cj)e 3&ajmntia HeraltJ. FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1868. THE AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. The G-azette of the 12th instant contained the abstract returns of the agricultural statistic col lectors, and though -we doubt whether it would be wise to repose absolutely on the accuracy of the Teports, there can be no doubt but they furnish an approximation to the actual state of the crops; and certainly a more gloomy state of things for a country whose agricultural interest is her main stay could not readily be conceived. The tables referred to are very comprehensive, showing the number of acres sown, the numbers of acres not reaped, and the number of farms respectively in each district which had good, middling, or inferior crops; the acreage and produce in each class; together with the Average yield on acres reaped and acres sown. r. The approximate area of wheat sown last season was 556,818 acres, of which nearly one-tenth por tion-55,399 acres-were not reaped. The yield on the land reaped i...

SKILL'JGOLEB GriEEC L - pTrom our own Corespondent.]. - March 16,1868. The fanners' meeting proved a failure, ..owing to some misunderstanding on aoootint of shdrtnew of tlie notice ; a second trial is, I believe, to be made, which it is hoped will be successful. . "We have had several narrow escapes from , fire in this neighbourhood. A day or two back a farmer nearly lost his haystack, and a day. or two. before that sparks from a burnins: log-ignited some dry grass, and threatened serious" results; but in both cases promptitude of action carried the day, and saved the neighbourhood from one of the greatest of scourges. .

ELECTION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
ELECTION MEETING. On Tuesday evening, in accordance with a pre vious notice to that effect, a meeting of tlie electors ?was held in Crase'e Room to consider who were the most fit and proper persons amongst the various candidates to represent the District of Light in the ensuing Parliament. There was a very large attendance, the room being well filled. On the motion of Mr. Hudall, seconded by Mr. Oldham, the chair was taken by Wis Worship the Mayor of Kapunda, who opened the meeting by saying he did so with feelings of great diffidence, as the circumstances of the colony were such as justified every colonist in looking at the approach ing elections as the most important for the weal of the colony which had. yet been held.. The de pressed condition of the agricultural interest in consequence of the failure of the crops rendered it important that their future members should be men of keen intellect and sterling integrity-men of sound principle, who had a stake in the colony. The pastor...

RIFLE SHOOTING. On Wednesday last the firing for Ghrrermnsnfc prizes by members of the Kapunda Bifies, under Drill Instructors Kingdon and Mortimer,, took place. There were sixteen marksmen competed.. The shooting was not up to the usual standard ; this may, however, partly he accounted for by the weather not being so faT-gurable-'-it being very hazy and the wind gusty.

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, March 19, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 20 March 1868
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, March 19,1868. 1 Hue metropolitan papers are getting apopleetic under the pressure of indignation meetings, election meetings, and English mail news. The .great event of Monday afternoon-was a credit to the colony, and a far stronger proof of our loyal :-»ttachment to Prince Alfred than the shouting and star-gazing of October last. The. hall was . packe&from floor to ceiling, or rather such por tions of it as Mr. George Coppin has been pleased to leave available. But for his miserable carpentry and colored calico it would have held double the number, and then there would have been a good jnany disappointed. Ifot more than a third of :r those who came could squeeze their way inside, ""»nd not one half of these got within sight of the platform. A growl had been raised against the « hour appointed for the-meeting-half-past two that it would exclude working men; but if any inconvenience may have been felt on that accou...
