NORTH-WEST BEND. [From our own Correspondent.] October 12, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 October 1878
KOETH-WEST BEXD. pProm our own Correspondent.^ October 12,1878. The effect of opening the Kapunda and North-West Bend is beginning to show itself in other ways besides its influence on the Murray traffic ; as in the early part of the week we had 110 less than four waggon-loads of farmers here in search of land. Some were from Waterloo, whilst one waggon-load was from Victoria. I believe they came to the conclusion that the land is all that could be desired—that it is simply a question of rain. The country just now looks its very best; in many places the grass is so long that it might be mowed for hay. A very sad accident happened here on Tues day last to a man named Henry Whitcoiiibe. He was working at a crane when the jib gave way and fell on the poor fellow, whose head couiiug into violent contact with an iron Tail sustained a frightful facture, besides which his back was badly h urt, . There being no medical man at Morgan he was at once sent down to the Kapunda^ Hospital, ^ Accid...

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, October 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 October 1878
OUR CITY LETTER. [[From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, October 10, 1878. I had the pleasure on Tuesday evening o£ seeing one of the best portraits I have seen in the colony. It is an excellent likeness of Mr. T. G-. Waterhouse, and has been painted by Mr. McCormack, to the order of the Trustees of the Prince Alfred Wesleyan College, to be hung there in commemoration of Mr. Waterhouse's liberal donations to the funds of that Institution. The picture is carefully painted and -well finished. The contrasts and harmonies of the colouring ai'e admirably managed, and so far from there being any chance &lt;of depreciating it as a colo nial production, it will not sujfer by compar ison with the works of some of the best En glish portrait painters. Our G-overnment will have no excuse to waste any more two hundred guineas in sending to England for bad likenesses of our Governors, got up ap parently in the character of stage policemen, when they can get good portraits painted here fo...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 October 1878
CEICKET. The match played between the Angaston and Kapunda Clubs on Saturday last, re sulted in an easy victory for the former by , 37 runs and one innings. The want of an umpire was severely felt by the Kapundaites, as unfortunately the gentlemen officiating at the commencement of the game had very ancient and remote ideas of cricket. This led to much dissatisfaction, which in its turn led to careless play. One man who was not out was given out, whilst another man who was out a long way was given not out, although he himself admitted he was out. Another cause of the defeat of the local players was that when a catch was given in many instances it was dropped, no matter tow easy it might be. This naturally dis gusted the bowlers, and was very annoying. The home team went in first, and put together 104 runs, which should have been no more than 40, if even that number. Shawyer is a great acquisition to the Angaston Club, being a good batsman and all there as a bowler. He played by far ...
