The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1878. MUNICIPAL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
Wije Hapuirta flfeiaRi. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1878. MUNICIPAL MATTEBS, As the nomination for the vacant offices in connection with our Munici pal Council takes place to-morrow, it may not be out of place to make a few remarks on corporate matters. And first of all we would express our regret that so little interest is manifested in municipalities generally in regard to the selection of representatives at the various Town Councils. If no fit and proper persons offer themselves for the various positions it does not ap pear to trouble the burgesses, and there is nothing in the absence of proper can didates to prevent any person, how ever unsuitable, who can find two ratepayers to propose him, from thrust ing himself into office. The only way to get really good men. to take such positions is by the ratepayers showing that they regard the position as im portant and the office as conferring honor on its incumbent. Some few weeks back there was such a stir made in our town on this subject ...
FROM KURRACHEE TO MEAN MEER; OR, A TRIP UP THE RIVER INDUS. [From a Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
FROM KTJERACHEE TO MEAN MEER ; OB,, A TRIP UP THE RIVER INDUS. [From a Correspondent."} We left Kurrachee 011 the 1st November— that is, we marched from the Barracks a dis tance of six miles in choking dust, and em barked. Barrels of commissariat ale stood at the bundah, or quay, and as each man passed on hoard the river steamer, he got one pint of beer banded to Mm, which, no matter what it might hare cost the country, by regulation only cost the man one penny, deducted from his next month's pay. I do not think I ever enjoyed a pint of beer like the one I then received, for I -was fall of dust. We had to sleep wherever we could in the heavy dew which always falls about the sea coast in India. Our mode of transit deserves a de scription. To the steamer Haveloek was fas tened a " flat," so called from its flat bottom, which drew only six inches of water. The steamer had to take this " flat," fastened to hawsers, not towed, up the Indus against the stream 800 miles. We remained fasten...
REUTER'S TELEGRAMS LONDON, November 21. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
BEUTEB'S TELEGKRAMS LONDON, November 21. At a Cabinet Council held yesterday it was resolved, as the Ameer of Afghanistan has sent no reply to the ultimatum of the Indian Government, to despatch orders to India for the advance of our troops. A despatch has been published of the Sec retary of State for India, which passes in re view the relations between England and Af ghanistan, and shows that the present diffi cultg arose in 1873, when the Gladstone Cabinet overruled Lord Northbrook's proposal that ^England should assure the Ameer of Afghanistan full protection against any attacks of Hussia. The Sank of England has reduced its rate of discount to 5 per cent. BOMBAY, November 21. The British troops occupied without resis tance Fort Kapion on the 21st instant. This fortress is situated beyond the town of Thull. The li.M.S. Assam left Galle for Australia on the 15th instant. LONDON, November 21. The Halifax award has been paid under protest.

SELECTED POETRY. LOYE AND FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
SELECTED POETRY. LOYE AND FOLLY. Love's -worshippers alone can know The thousand mysteries that are his; Tfis blazing torch, his twanging bow, Hib blooming age are mysteries. A charming science—but the day Were all too short to eon it o'er; So take of me this little lay, A sample of its boundless lore. As once beneath the fragrant shade Of myrtles fresh in Heaven's pure air, The children of Lore and Folly played— A quarrel rose betwixt the pair. Love said the gods should do him right, But Folly vowed to do it then, And struck him o'er the orbs of sight, So hard he never saw again. His lovely mother's grief was deep, She called for vengeance on the deed ; A beauty does not vainly weep, Nor coldly does a mother plead. A shade came o'er the eternal bliss That fills the dwellers of the sides: Even stony-hearted Nemesis And Bhadamanthus -wiped their eyes. " Behold," she said, " this lovely hoy," While streamed afresh her graceful tears " Immortal, yet shut out from joy And sunshine all h...
VICTORIA. Melbourne, November 21. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
VICTOBIA. Melbourne, ^November 21. | Jiotli Mouses are sitting, but the reform question has not been attended to. It is un derstood that there is no hope of an agree ment between the Ministry and the Council, and that the Embassy will not be abandoned. The Appropriation Bill was read the second time in the Assembly, and is now being dis cussed in Committee. An attempt is being made to strike out the item of £1,200 to re fund the duty on paper to the Company at Geelong. Melbourne, November 22. The prorogation of Parliament is expected to take place on Thursday next. The Bill for Amending the Land Tax has passed through all its stages in the Assembly, but the Council will not hare the opportunity of considering it.
CLERICAL ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
CLERICAL ANECDOTES. Anecdotes of the clergy are of two kinds— I firstly, those relating to themselves; and secondly, those related by them concerning others. ^ From the position they occupy in the social scale, they possess advantages' and means of acquiring a knowledge of traits of character, and of picking up incidents and anecdotes of everyday life of an extremely interesting and oftentimes of a very amusing nature ; and if ministers can in this way tell much concerning the people, the people, on the other hand, can tell much of them. Ministers are a Mnd of 'walking sign-post, at which every one looks in passing: being known and « read of all men." Their sayings ana^ doings, their shortcomings and imper sections, their .faults and failings, are all chronicled and commented upon. There is in existence a large stock of this literature, culled from the lives of the great and good who have gone before, which is being con stantly augmented by additional "supplies from the living.

ENGLISH JOTTINGS. [From a Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
EUGKLISH JOTTINGS. ("From a Correspondent.! Why Accidents Happen.—A sad acci dent happened on Saturday, August SI, at Sittingbourne, on the London, Chatham, and Dover Line. An excursion train was due and some trucks by a mistake of the points man were shunted on to the up line. It was a fast train from Ramsgata to London, and well filled with passengers. The crash was tremendous; out of twelve carriges four were utterly smashed, the others more or less in jured, six persons were killed, _ and forty injured. Had the points and signals inter locked, as is usual on most lines, the accident could not have occurred. It is all very well for railway companies to advertise excursions to the seaside and back at cheap fares, but in too many cases it is there and not back for the ill-fated passenger. The adoption ^ of tried and approved inventions for rendering railway travelling comparatively safe, such as the interlocking of points and signals, should not be left optional. One would think fo...
BROADBRIM'S FOREIGN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
BBOADBEIM'S EOKEIGN LETTER. " ' You don't look well, Broadbrim,' said my friend Grubbs, as I stood looking at the monkeys in the Jardin d1 Acclimatisation, about two weeks ago ; ' I think a little travel would do you good.' G-ubbs was right. Nearly four months of continuous work had made me wish for a holiday ; besides, every body who was anybody was departing from Paris ; so I thought I would just take a run into Switzerland; dash tlirough the mountains ; dive in the Lakes ; take a peep at the big Strasbourg clock; float down the Rhine; get a sniff at Cologne ; see Brussels ; run over to London; drop in at Edinburgh and Glasgow ; take a sight at the Higlilands and the Lochs ; whip across the Channel; take in Giant s Causeway and the Lakes of Killarney ; and then, with a light heart and lighter pocket, return to my post at the Exposition, and stay there contentedly till the curtain rang down on the last day of October. My preparations were brief. Grubbs was not troubled with much ba...
CRICKET. BY COVER POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 November 1878
CRICKET. Br Coveh Point. A match -was played between the Gtwler and Kapunda Cricket Clubs on Saturday afternoon, at Kapunda, on the ground near Dutton Park, resulting m a victory for the visitors by 28 runs. The day was pretty well suited for the game, and being fine about the largest muster of spectators present at a match attended, including a number of ladies. The Kapunda Captain won the toss, and de cided to take the wickets, McLaren and Wellington being the first to handle the willow. J. H. TardifE (a left hand bowler with a nasty break from leg, and a member of the South Adelaide Club) opened the ball, and the first one he delivered proved fatal to Wellington, the middle stump being sent flying with a beauty. 1-^-0—0 was the register as Shakes walfeod in. After thiee wiu he, too, succumbed "to one of Tardiff's trimmers, and 2—0—0 appeared on the score sheet. W. L. Neale took the vacant position, and received the remainder of the over, playing each ball steadily, . Devine bowle...

AUBURN. [From our own Correspondent.] .November 20. Oil Tuesday, the 12th, -which was the day observed as the general holiday here, the Bible Christian and Wesleyan Sabbath-schools held a combined picnic at Skilly Creek about four miles out of Auburn. The children assembled with a number of friends at the Wesleyan Chapel, whence they made a start at about 9 o'clock in waggons kindly lent for the occa sion, headed by the Auburn Fife and Drum Band. The day was extremely hot, but as all had come with the intention of enjoying themselves they set to work, or rather play, with a will until about 5 o'clock, stopping only to replenish their bodily wants with all sorts of goods things which had been pro vided in abundance by the Committee. With the exception of one or two slight accidents the day passed off very pleasantly. In the evening a literary and musical entertainment in connection with the above was held in the Town Hall. Only a very short notice had been given, but as the price of ...
