CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, May 7, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 8 May 1868
CITY OottdEsPO.NDENGE. ("From our own Correspondent."] Adelaide, May 7, 1868. The Returning Officers have kept their best fun to the last, and the electors of the final batch of constituencies have been none the worse for waiting. All, with one exception, have turned out to the great satisfaction and comfort of metro- - politans, who are supposed to know best what is for . the good, of the country. The Light especially isto . be praised for the ability with which it has emerged from the chaos of Freelingism, Alienism, and John HaTtism with which it was inundated. It has not only chosen its best men, but it has re jected the others in such a way that there could be no mistake about its intentions. &lt;3v M. Allen may brag in next week's Satirist about his 279 plumpers, but there are a thousand more good men and true in the district who have some res pect for the national legislature. The collapse of Freeling has been, unexpectedly severe. It was not John Barrow's fault if str...
THE MYSTERY OF DARKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 8 May 1868
THE MYSTERY OF DARKNESS. The weirdest manifestation of the spiri tual influence to which the human body is subjected is to be found in the expres sion of a blind person's face. If you want to arrive at a real understanding of the mysterious life within life which surrounds us, and wh:ch Ik upon us, search stu diously the lineaments of the blind, and you will then know what kind of hidden force is the soul that has wrought so inef fable an expression. The natural air of a blind face is that of repose. It is right that ibis should be, for we believe silence to be with darkness, and peace to be with silence. There are few faces that have light, upon which in their hours of repose may not be found an expression as of hun griness, waxing, fainter or more powerful as we search down the gradations of intel lect. Life communicates to the eyes of those that can see a light which beams upon you with a sense of want-an ex pression of unrest-a thirsty desire to solve fresh, mysteries. The sugge...

HoUorcay's Pills.-Restorative Treat ment.-It has been confirmed by the experience of thirty years that these Pills constitute the best alterative and tonic medicine hitherto available by the public. It is enough to say that a short course of these purifying Pills have in numberless cases been marked by the most gratifying results, .when the invalids were becoming daily weaker and worse, though no particular disease could be detected Holloway's Pills purify the source of life, re-kindle the fading energies, revive the sick and delicate, and raise up the broken-down. This medicine is especially recommendable because it is so well suited to the community at large, and its innocent nature precludes the possibility of its causing mischief under any circumstances whatever.-Advt.

VESUVIUS AND THE DESTRUCTION OF SANTA LUCIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868
VESUVIUS AND THE DESTRUC TION OF SANTA LTJCIA. It is scarcely possible, as we. look at Vesuvius, to abstain from speaking- of the terrible disaster which has befallen the spot on which I almost stand. Who has not heard of Santa Lucia ? Its beauties are celebrated in one of the most popular songs of .Naples; and not a visitor to this city has perhaps ever looked out of his window in early morning without hearing the primo tenore of the streets singing, to the notes of the light guitar, " Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!" How splendid the view from its, I regret to say, very dirty path way I Vesuvius in the distance, the bright blue sea between us; and then, coming nearer home, how picturesque and unique are the surroundings! The oyster stalls and the bright mother-of-pearl looking shells, ranged for sale on little shelves above, and the mariners, with their red Phrygian caps and handsome bronzed legs-all these are the accidents which strike us as we approach, the scene of the disaster. We p...
