OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, October 9, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 11 October 1878
OUR CITY LETTER. pProm our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, October 9. 1878. As affairs of the State demand first atten tion, it is my duty to inrorm you fcnat I was correct in my surmise that Mr. Thomas King, M.P., would take the office of Sixth Minister, or Minister of Education, vice Mr. Rowland Sees, M.P., resigned. Apart from any per sonal feelings towards the Hon. Thomas King, I think the Chief Secretary made a wisechoiee in asking him to join the Ministry. Mr. King is a popular man, who I believe has few if any enemies in the House, he is a clear headed business man, with a fair amount of administrative ability; and though in his office he will have plenty to do, there is little doubs he will master the work after a reason able time, and will devote himself to the duties of his responsible position. It would have been very difficult for the Chief Secre tary to have made a better choice, considering all the surrounding circumstances. I notice an interesting statement in the re po...

The Melbourne Meat-Preserving Company held their .half-yearly meeting to-day. The report shows that there was a loss on the half-year's transactions, notwithstanding which, however, there is £3,584 to the credit of the profit and loss account. Melbourne, October 8. At a meeting of the Victorian Cricketers' Association it was arranged that the first match of the Australian Eleven against fifteen Victorians should take place on 12th December on the Melbourne Cricket Club Ground, the free use of which has been given for the occasion.

They believe they will be able to send up about 40 tons daily. There was a discussion to-day in the Legis lative Assembly in reference to the condi...

BROADBRIM'S PARIS LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 October 1878
BB0ADB3EM?S PARIS LETTER. It is a fitting tribute to the genius and character of the age that the two grandest halls in tlie great Exposition should be devoted exclusively to machinery. There are mighty engines there carrying in their Titanic sinews almost limitless power, keeping in motion a world of wonderful machinery - and surely there can be no higher revelation of the genius of man and the power of mind oyer matter than that afforded by this mag nificent display. As you enter the Porte Bapp, the grand avenue which exactly divides the Exposition building, lies before you; sentinels, grim but polite, guard the entrance, and beautiful works of art invite you onward; only a few steps from the gate is a marvellous vase by G-us tave Dore. It is of colossal proportions and looks as if it were intended to tell the story of the Deluge. Myriads of little struggling forms cling to its green encrusted sides seek- j ing to escape the terrible death that threatens j them ; on some of the fa...

The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1878. THE NORTHERN RABBIT-MEAT PRESERVING COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 October 1878
Wt)e Haptntija I TUESDAY, 0CT0BJ5E 15, 1878. THE NORTHERN RABBIT-MEAT riiESKEVJNG- COMl'ANY. ^ We regard the winding-up of this Company aa a matter of regret, not alone for the shareholders, but for the colony at large. Every new industry which can be successfully established is a clear gain to the colony, as well as to those who are specially and pecuniarily interested therein. But it very frequently happens that those who are the.first to introduce any par ticular industry are losers peeuniarly; whilst those who follow, by availing themselves of the experience purchased by the pioneers of such industry, are more successful. We are afraid, how ever, that the special industry which, was introduced by means of the Com pany referred to is not likely to be again taken up, because the force of circumstances is or will be too strongly adverse to render it probable that any one will undertake such a risk. And yet, after all, it does seem to be a great misfortune that an enterprise which h...
