THE RELIGION OF SELF. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
THE RELIGION OF SELF. Being- then, as we are no doubt, im measurably the richest, the happiest, and I the most free, and glorious of all nations, it is natural that some of us should en quire for the princinl^s by which we have attained to that proud position, and which may be expected, before any very long time has elapsed, to land us in a state of perfection which will be feebly and inade quately described as a heaven upon earth. Now, it is only necessary to recall all that has been done and said for t!ie last fiftv years to perceive at once that this magni ficent prospect has been attained, and worked up to, and realized, slowly per haps, but certainly, solely through the beneficent and hallo wing- influence of our English religion. There are nations con tent to worship Brahma and Vishu, of whom we know little, and care less; nations who bow down before the sun, which for our happiness we never see; nations too winch retain a laith in reve lations of various kinds, and unequal va...
NITRO-GLYCERINE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
fllTJBO-GLYCEKlN E. Nitro-glycerine, known also as Olonoin ot Glonoin Oil, is a compound which is produced by the action of a mixture of strong nitric and sulphuric acids on glycerine at low temperatures. Two methods of preparing it are given in Watts's " Dictionary of Chemistry," vol. ii., p.p. 890, 891, to which we must refer the reader who seeks for details on this subject. According to what ever method it is prepared, it is obtained as a bright yellow oily liquid, of specific gravity 1.595, inodorous, but having a sweet pungent aromatic taste; a single drop, however, if placed on the back of the tongue, produces headache and pain in the back, which last for many hours. At 240°, or higher, it is liable to explode, and if exposed for a length of time to half that temperature, ex plosion may take place at 180 °, or less; and it detonates when struck, the explosion being ex cessively rapid, and unaccompanied by smoke. This explosive or detonating power renders nitro glycerine a usef...
POLITICAL MEETING AT HAMILTON. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
POLITICAL MEKTING HAMILTON. A meeting of the electors of the Burra District i residing in the neighbourhood of Hamilton was 1 held in the Assembly Rooms at the Farmers' Home Hotel shoi'tly after noon on Monday Last, i to hear the political views of one of the candi dates-Mr. J. B. Neales, Mr. Dawson was voted to the chair, who opend the business by calling on Mr. Neales to address the meeting. Mr. Neales then came forward, and was warmly j received. He said he had no intention of making 1 any very lengthened address, inasmuch as it would hardly be courteous to the electors at head quarters to first do so at one of the smaller polling-places, but still he was very glad to meet with the electors, and would briefly -state -that his principles and political views were nearly the same as in 1857, when on the occasion of the change in the constitution he expressed them in a very decided manner. Of course, the different position of the colony, and the course of policy adopted in the other ...
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, April 16, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
CI i Y ColisiE .'POADENGE. JTrom our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 16, 1868. I very sorry to admit it, but I have missed tlie ! honour of first informing you of the Red Bust I Commission's report. It appeared in extenso in the daily papers on Friday last. It proves a . very good agricultural essay, giving a bushel of i good advice to every grain of science. There is a striving at originality, evidently instigated by a fear tliat tlie public will not consider the Com mission worth its salt. But the report is, in plain truth, much better than might have been ex pected. If not much truth be discovered, a great deal of former error is exposed. The Agricul tural and Horticultural Society were wrong in reporting as they did in 1865, that long cultivated land was more liable to disease than new land. Those who maintained that continuous use of the same seed induced disease were wrong, for some of the best imported seeds have produced the most rusty crops. Mr. Scown was quite at sea i...
THE HEREDITARY GRAND CHAMBERLATN OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
THE HEREDITARY GRAND CHAM BERLATN OF ENGtLAMD. In a speech remarkable alike for its honest fer vour and its florid graces, Mrv Coleridge defied the Hereditary Grand Chamberlain of England to do that which, through his counsel he was bent on doing. Mr. Coleridge said-" Let the Here ditary Grand Chamberlain of England, the man whose duty it was to marshal the nobles of th» country to the throne of the sovereign-let him say in that action-' I, an English nobleman, and an English gentleman, hare sold your property,, and have the proceeds; but you are a married woman--you cannot maintain this action. I will take advantage of this legal technicality to defeat your just claim.' Let the Hereditary Grand. Chamberlain of England do this if he dare-let him go to Court and tell his high-souled and pure minded royal mistress what kind of actions her Chamberlain commits; and let him add that he resorted to a defence which miserably failed a defence as bad in law as it was unfounded in honesty and...
ARRIVAL OF THIS ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
ARRIVAL UP THiS ENGLISH MML. The branch steamer witli the South Australian portion of the English Mail, arrived in Holdfast i Bay on Monday the 13th, bringing newspaper dates to February 27, and late telegrams down to March 11. The following are extracts from the papers, &c., to hand ; It has been announced that the Queen will hold a Court and three drawing-rooms during the spring months. Prince Leopold had been alarmingly ill, but at the time of the departure of the mail was steadily recovering. Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Prussia has given birth to a prince. Lord Derby resigned the Premiership on the 24th of February in consequence of continued illness. Mi'. Disraeli has since formed a Ministry, and has therefore attained the dignity of Premier. The persons apprehended in connection with the Clerkenwell outrage have been fully com mitted for trial. The names most widely known which appear in the obituary list are those of Sir D. Brewster and Mr. Herapath. It m...
SKILL GOLE[?] CREEK. April 14, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
SKILL 0«EEK. FFrom our own Correspondent."] April 14, 1868. Things here seem very quiet, the only matter i calculated to enliven us being the various anni versary services, which are pretty plentiful round here just now. A young lad in the employ of Mr. J. Thomas, of this neighbourhood, met with an accident on Good Friday last, by being thrown off a horse and severely spraining his wrist; he is, however, progressing favourably, having fortunately met with no further injury. The heavy rains of last week have greatly in- | jured the residue of this season's grapes; I wonder ] it didn't wash them away altogether. The weather j seems, however, to have changed for fine again, ? but cold. j

AUBURN. Wednesday April 8, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
AUBURN. [From a Correspondent.] Wednesday April 8, 1868. We have had some fine rains this week, and the verdure has now become green in the vicinity of the township. The farmers, feeling satisfied with the rain, are making all things ready for ploughing, and on nearly all the farms here the first furrow will be upturned this week. On Monday the inhabitants of the township were taken by surprise when reminded of the departure of .His Royal Highness by tlie firing of twenty-one guns, and many hearts were sorrow ful on account of the circumstances that led to his early departure. Owing to the inclemency of the weather there were not many disappointed at the Town Hall on Tuesday night, where the Rev. J. Maughan was expected to lecture in connection with the Institute, and it is to be hoped no time will be lost in again securing the services of the rev. gentleman for an early date in the same place. We have been pleased to observe an improve ment in the postal arrangements, which will be...

RHYNIE. April 16,1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
RH Y:\lifi. [From our own Correspondent.] April 16,1868. Hie Election passed off very quietly here on Thursday last. Only nineteen electors took the opportunity of recording their votes. The result of the contest in returning Messrs. Kingston and Bright seems to give general satisfaction here. Grood Friday was regarded as a holiday by most people here. There was a camp meeting at Woolshed Flat in connection with the Wesleyan body. There was a great number of people | present, and everytliing passed off very success ! fully. A large number of the farmers, with their families, furui! ure, implements, &c., pass through this place daily en route for the North, where | they expect, I suppose, to find the "better land." | The most of them, I believe, come from the | South, where they had got rather rusty. Within ! the last two months I am certain that no less than ; forty or fifty families have passed through, this I place. In the face of these facts, who can say that the present ...

Hollo may s Oin'ment and Pilh. The Joys of Home.-How often does it happen j that happiness is driven from our hearths by j illness ?-.sickness and sorrow are constant com panions ; though in most cases their tenure is j short when Holloway's remedies are used to dis possess them. These medicaments can be confi- j dently and heartily recommended to all invalids as the most easy, safe, and certain means of ! preserving all that is good, and casting out all that is corrupt, externally and internally. They are universally applicable by both sexes in every disease. Holloway's medicaments do not de teriorate by being kept, nor are their properties changed by climate; they can be purchased everywhere, and the price at which they are sold is moderate.-Advt. a W AJ4.N DO you suffer from physical incapacity 1 Are you suiferii g from nervous debility!

CORRESPONDENCE. KAPUNDA DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
UOKK HSPuN IJBNCK. KAPUNDA DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-Our District having been divided into Wards, can you inform me why the money col lected in each Ward is not spent in it ? Had that been done there would have been no debate about accepting a tender for a bridge amounting to £217 19/8, as all the rates in the Ward will not pay for the bridge alone, leaving all the rest of the Ward without improvement. Can you also inform me of what material the bridge is to be built-whether of stone or iron ? as no doubt by the price it is intended, to last for centuries. All this and more I could have learnt if I had attended the meetings of the Council, but if the statement made by your correspondent, " Rate payer," of the 3rd inst. is correct I would rather not. I am, Sir, &c., TIMID.
MOUNT PLEASANT. April 15, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
MuUiYr fFrom our own Correspondent."! April 15, 1868. The Mount Pleasant Annual Races took place I on Thursday, 9l.h insfc., and were highly success ful, the weather being extremely propitious for the event. .The settling night is fixed for Tues day, 21st inst. [ Many of our farmers and tradesmen are seek ing the protection of the Insolvency Court, the badness of the times, and in some cases the ! pressure of unreasonable creditors, rendering the chance of tiding over their difficulties extremely improbable. j Sickness is still very prevalent, though not to | such an alarming extent as a month ago:-; I The usual Easter meeting was lield in St. John's Church last evening; there was but a moderate attendance, though the business brought forward was of considerable magnitude and im portance, and it was therefore thought advisable to adjourn the meeting till the 7th proximo. It is gratifying to add that the Rev. W. A. Clayfield, the pastor of the church, may be expected to take i up his...
MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
MISCELLANEA. THE VIOLIN. - A well-made violin contains more than fifty different pieces of wood, the woods being- three -maple, red deal, and ebony. Tiie wood must be tboroug-lil / seasoned, especially the red ..leal, and the only anist of modern times who is said to counterfeit the works of the great Italian makers, M. Vuillaume, of P«ms, has done so mainly by a most careful selection ot materials. Many a roof and panel fro in Swiss chalets have found their way into his workshop. Be the grain ever so good, the material must have undergone the slow action of time. Some have, thought to supersede this by the use ofacids and by artificial heat ; but these expedients have only a short-lived success. The violins thus forced dete riorate steadily ; whereas the good instru meats become more mellow and precious in sound year by year. APPROPRIATE W EDDINGORNAMENTS. -A wedding took place in this city last week which offered convincing proof that the money had not been spent yet (says a New Y...
RIVERTON. Wednesday, April 8, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 April 1868
RIVEKTUN. [From our own Correspondent.] Wednesday, April 8, 1868. I !On Thursday evening last information was brought to tlie police that a young man was dead at Macaw Creek. . Police-trooper Molloy, from J here, started immediately, and ascertained that the unfortunate man's name was William John Ifelson, from Myponga; lie was scarcely twenty years of age. It seems from the evidence given, and from what I can ascertain elsewhere, that he was working on the Gilbert for Mr. Bond, the road contractor, and feeling rather unwell he took a large dose of Epsoin Salts; shortly afterwards he went to bathe in a large hole opposite Forrester's, after which he felt considerably worse. He left his work there, and walked to Mintaro, suffering all the time from dysentery. He there engaged as hostler for Mr. J. Bleechmore, but finding he got worse, and was unable to do his work, the i poor fellow left there., and on Tuesday last walked | all the way down to Macaw Creek, where he fell: exhausted on...
