CORRESPONDENCE. THE GYMPIE DIGGINGS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 7 August 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. THE GYMPIE DIGGINGS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-One cannot help regretting the departure from our coasts of so many of the working popu tion, the thew and sinews of our prosperity. It is marvellous how contagious the " Yellow Fever" has proved to be; men have left comfort able homes, and constant and easy employment, for the very improbable chance of fortune on a gold-field. Most of those who have ? leftJCapuncla during the last fortnight have taken just sufficient to carry them to the Mary River, and are quite J regardless of the uncertainty of the means of getting back-in some eases left "wives and iamilies whose prospects of support is indeed very shadowy during the absence of their lords and masters. It will be impossible to calculate the number of cases of distress which must inevitably result from this very reckless running after fickle for tune. Many will never return-inconstancy will detain some, and others will be detained by dis ease and death. Wow, Mr. Editor, wou...
HAMILTON. August 4, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 7 August 1868
HAMILTON. CFrom our own Correspondent."! August 4,1868. The Sixpenny Headings came off very plea santly this time, a fine moonlight evening enabling several to attend from a distance. H. T. Morris, Esq., J. P., of Anlaby, presided. After a pleasing duet by the Misses Crase, Mr. W. H. Kelly "read an amusing piece from Pickwick, followed by the " Burial of Sir John Moore," by Mr. S. Pinson. W. Fischer's song " Ellen Bain," was pretty well received, but the song required to be pitched in a lower key to suit the voice of the artist. Mr. John Mitchell then gave a parody on the "Burial of Sir John Moore," rendered capitally, and warmly encored. Mr. Elliott, of Kapunda, favored the company with an extract from "Frank Fairleigh," principally, on love-letter writing, which was intensely interesting to the ladies es pecially. Mr. Evans then sang the favorite song of " Then you'll Remember Me," in a powerful voice, which was encored. A reading by Mr. Thomas concluded the first portion of the e...
SADDLEWORTH. August 5, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 7 August 1868
SADDLEWORTH. fFrom our own Correspondent.^ August 5,1868. Special services on behalf of the minister's re sidence which was erected a year ago, were held on Sunday and Monday last. On Sunday three sermons were preached; in the morning by the Rev. J. S. Wayland, and in the afternoon and evening by Mr. J. Heaslip, of Undalya. On Monday afternoon a public tea was provided. The Bev. J. Wills occupied the chair, and ad dresses were given by the Eev. and Messrs. Way land, Grurr, Harry, Hancock, and Groodes. The tea was well attended, and the congregations were large. The total proceeds amounted nearly to £16. The usual votes of thanks to the ladies for providing the trays, and also to the Chairman, brought the services to a close. The days are now veiy fine, but the nights still continue veiy cold and frosty.
GYMPIE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 7 August 1868
GYMPIE DIGGINGS. The following letters has been kindly placed at our disposal, and as the writers are well known to most of our townsmen we publish them, that they may know what Messrs. J. Carter and W. H. Batten think of the Gympie :— Gympie, July 19,1868. Dear Friends—If you could see us now I guess you would smile; in a little tent 6x9, our bed a few leaves on the ground, our cooking utensils and tools in the corner, and one side me sitting on my clothes and bedding with the washpan on my knees writing; the rain pouring outside all day, a good deal finding its way inside, wetting our blankets, &c., but with all we manage pretty well; we have just had dinner—fried steak and sausages. We started from Maryborough for this place on the 10th and got here on the 13th inst. The road all the way lies through a thick forest, just a track cut for the dray; ironbark and gum trees reaching 100 feet, generally 50 to 70 feet without branches, and very straight, and from 6 in. to 3 feet...

Holloways Oin'ment and, Pills. Pear not.-Though, surrounded by circumstances disadvantageous to health, these remedies, pro perly applied, will cub short fevers, influenza, in flammation, diptheria, and a host of other com plaints always lurking about to seize on the weak, forlorn, or unwary. The superiority of Holloway's medicines over others for subsiding disease has been so widely and fully proved, that it is only necessary to ask the afflicted to give them a trial, and if the instructions folded round them be fol lowed no disapointinent will ever ensue, nor dangerous consequence result. In hoarseness and ulcerated sore throat the Ointment should frequently be rubbed on the neck and top of the chest; ifc will arrest the increasing inflammation, allay disquietude, and gradually cure.-Advt. A WAJtlNlNU. DO you suffer from physical incapacity'! Aie you suffering from nervous debility? Have you been the guilty victim of any secret vice? Do you suiter from a set of symptoms nearly aki...
NERVOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
NERVOUS MEN. A nervous man is with many a frequent subjccc of derision; yet there is perhaps in this world hardly a creature deserving of more pity than a nervous man. The irrelevancy of his conduct is melancholy. His is the keenest misfortune of human lite-the consciousness of many mistakes without the power ot rectifying them. In5 his mind there is an enduring sense of his own inefficiency. He presents the mournful spectacle of a human being whose judg ment is fettered, as it were, by a network of highly-wrought nerves. Wanting in tellectual control, his less, arms, and tongue are perpetually leading hioi into some kind of embarrassments. If he comes into a room ten chances to one that he falls over the mat in the very act of giving his name to the servant 5 or he will enter with such nervous rapidity as to make him at once the Eynthea of the minute-provoking witticisms from waffs, titters from girls, and sympathy from nervous people like himself. He cannot hand a glass of wine or...
SISTERS-IN-LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
SISTERS-IN-LAW. There are certain little sources, characteristic of newly-married life, which, perhaps, more than any other in a man's career, would cause him, if classically inclined, to repeat the sensitive Hora tiad words-Odi profanum rntlgus, et arceo ; and, in the thus uncomplemented crowd, he would cer tainly include his mother-in-law, and the other affectionate creatures that usually follow in her train. But a really nice sister-in-law may be ad mitted to the early matrimonial mysteries without any hesitation. She neither interferes in the in evitable amantivm irae, nor is she in the smallest degree shocked by those gushing little passages of honeymoon existence which constitute the redinteffratio amoris. She has the maidenly deli cacy to ignore both those little, incidents. She is blind and deaf to the inadvertent petulances which are nothing more than the attempts of two young people, hut shortly acquainted, to get to understand each other j and she has not a blush or a reb...
FORTUNES MADE BY ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
FORTUNES MADE BY ADVER TISING. Few of our readers, we believe, can be unac quainted with the name of Hollo way, the greatest of all advertisers. It is not our purpose to make any allusions to the properties of Ins medicines, but rather to show how much can be done by energy, industry, aud a judicious course of pub licity. We are told that when he commenced the sale of medicines some thirty years ago, it was on the sniiillest possible scale, making his pills and ointment with his own hands-the latter in a small iron pot. We refer to this fact that some may not look at the Professor as he now stands, a rich and princely merchant, arid who might say to them selves, " All! but who could think of doing as he has done ?" We reply that thousands might do almost as much in various ways, keeping iu view Lord Chesterfield's advice, that " Little barques should keep near shore, while larger ones may venture far "-let your beginning be oil a small aud progressive scale, taking but one careful u...
BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
BRITISH AND FO RE IGN EXTRACTS The motion for the second reading of the Married Women's Properly Bill was carried in the House of Commons on June 10, by tlie casting vote of the Speaker. Parliament bad passed a vote of thanks to Sir 1L Napier for bringing the Abyssinian war to a successful termination, and a message liad been received from the Queen, recommending an hereditary pension of £2,000 per annum to be made to him. The commercial news is unfavourable. Aus tralian news by the latest advices was quoted at 681, and copper at £81; the wool market also felling. The Independence Sellenique says that a young Cretan girl has just arrived in Athens dressed in the military costume in which she has for a long time taken part (without her sex being known) in the insurrectionary war. A dreadful murder has just been committed at Conzieu (Ain). Mdme. Ferrand, sixty years of age, who, in consequence of her husband being beriddenwith paralysis, occupied a separate room, not having appeared a...
The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, AUGUST 14,1868. DESTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
Wljt HapunDa derate. FRIDAY, AUGUST 14,1868. DESTITUTION. It appears to be a necessary condition of human existence tliat whilst some should have more than enough of this world's goods, and many just a sufficiency, others, and not a few, are always to bo found whose lives are embittered and rendered miserable by the cold pinching hand of poverty, not merely comparative, but absolute-even unto destitution. It might have been hoped, nay, it was at one time firmly believed that in this southern hemisphere, where over-popula tion is a thing unknown, absolute poverty would for many generations be a stranger in the land-that even in the worst of times bread and work would be obtainable by all classes, even though for a while there should be no opportunity of making advances towards a state of future compe tence. Whilst such was the theroetical opinion formed, practical experience alto gether contradicts it. True, we have not the same proportion of indigent poor as is found in the fatherla...
THE AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL CRICKETERS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
THE AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL CRICK ETERS IN ENGLAND. I No truer test of the interest taken by the public in the performance of this team from the Antipodes can be afforded than that of 7000 I persons congregated at the Oval on May 25, when the first match of a Beries projected to be played in the three kingdoms came off, their opponents being eleven gentlemen of the Surrey Club. Many and confused were the ideas generally en tertained respecting these Aboriginals, both as regards their cricketing acquirements and their physical conformation. Unfortunately, their best man was absent through illness. In order that they might be easily recognised each maij had a sash differing in colour affixed to his shirt. At 12.15 play commenced, and as the two leading Surrey batsmen approached the wickets the Blacks received them with vociferous cheering, Mullagh and Lawrence were the bowlers at starting. At 28 the first wicket (Mr. Noble's) fell, and at 42 Mr. Jupp was cleverly stumped by Bullocky. Fr...
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. The Government deserves some credit for the early period at which it has put forth the resolutions indicating its policy on theNorthernTerritory question; though for ourselves we must own that the course of procedure proposed is altogether too 1 mixed to be likely to give satisfaction, there being, as will be noticed by the re solutions subjoined, considerable latitude I of choice given to the land-order holders I as to how their claims shall be settled. ' In the first instance, for all land to be surveyed by Government, an extension of five years is proposed, with a bonus of 50 per cent, on the quantity of land secured by the original orders to those who agree thereto. Secondly, those who choose to survey their own land at any time within the next ten years are to be allowed twice the quantity secured by such land orders. Thirdly, tbat order holders are to be allowed to purchase additional blocks of 240 acres at 5s. per acre, to be selected within five years...

By Mr. Brady-Was the defendant; kept a public-house at Bagot's Gup; the weekly takings were lately very small-from 15/ to 25/per week, until now there was a contract by the place; did not intend to pay the judgment debt, as he did not owe all of it--judgment went by default; there had been an execution put in the house in March last for this debt. His Worship told defendant there was a proper course to pursue to get the judgment set aside if he had a good defence. i In answer to the Court, defendant said he J could not propose any terms of payment. He had no means to do ao-it took ail he got to keep the family. His Worship ordered defendant to pay 5J per week. Mr. Brady objected to the smallness of the order as compared with the position of the de fendant and the long time which the debt ha...

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. £From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, August 13,1868. I "When you North countrymen are clearing out for Grympie at sucli a rate, some of you ought to call at Scott's Creek oil jiassing. It is not on the dircct route to the port, but not far off it, unless Coromandel Yalley should have shunted out of position during the recent ups and downs of the colony. Somewhere to the eastward of that jam iuakiug township is the argentiferous creek which has set people 011 'Change dreaming of Peru 400 ounces to the ton, silver Moontas, and all manner of supernatural luck. Scott's Creek has a dozen different 1 lis tones-bub it is quite new to you I suppose as it is to myself-which I give you.

He deferred his application bnly until Mr. Neales should re turn to the Commissionersliip of Grown Lands, in order to issue new mining regulations. When...
