The minutes of the previous meeting-were read and confirmed. Councillors Mellor and Nicholson were excused from attending on account of absence from Kapunda. His Worship the Mayor said it was his painful duty to acquaint the Council with the decease of the late Councillor Francis, a gentleman who had attended his duty from the date of his appoint ment, and given satisfaction to his brother Coun cillors, and he believed to the ratepayers at large. It had pleased Providence to remove hirn3 and it would be for the Council that day to take steps for the election of his successor.

HAMILTON. August 13,1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
HAMILTON. [From our own Correspondent/] August 13,1868. I am sorry to be unable to send you a budget of news from our thriving little township ; but if Adelaide is termed a " farinaceous Tillage," of course you know ours is essentially so. True tlie Copper Company's teams daily wend tlieir way through, towards Kapunda, loaded with, precious metal, and sometimes loads of hides and sheep skins pass by from the Far North; but the pro duce of our neighbourhood, and that in which we are most intensely interested is wheat, and when day after day the priceis quoted lower and lower, no wonder our visages like the days lengthen, and we have little inclination to make merry. Our principal amusements are reading the papers, watching the progress of political jobberies or bobberies vide [Northern Territory debate, and talking of that never failing topic, the weather.

CORRESPONDENCE. BLACK RUST. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. BLACK RUST. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-It is generally admitted that the rougher the land lies after harrowing the more liable it is to grow black rusfc; and as the past seed-time was veiy unfavourable for harrowing, a great number of the paddocks are very rough now, and unless they are rolled we cannot expect to be without an extra share of black rust next harvest; rolling is also useful to kill grubs, and set the land firm, which makes it hold the moisture better. I am, Sir, &c., EOLLEE.
MR. MONTGOMERY'S READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 14 August 1868
MR. MONTGOMERY'S tfKADINGS. Ou Friday night there was a very good attend ance at Crase's Boom on the occasion of Mr. Montgomery's second and final readings-the audience including nearly all who had been present on the previous night. We may here express our conviction that had this really magnificent elocu tionist been able to have stayed for a week with us, the audience would have nightly become larger; for unlike many such entertainments, those provided by him do but provoke the desire for more. This is perhaps the best evidence that can be obtained of Mr. Montgomery's powers thai quite alone and unaided he keeps an audience perfectly thrilled for a couple of hours. In Adelaide the nightly attendance became each night more numerous; for though there is un doubtedly great power in "reputation," aKIl, even before the most gifted men are recognized as such, they must afford oeeular and audible proof that the reputation they enjoy is fairly theirs; for whilst some who desire to acquir...

PAB.li! AMEISTTAB, Y. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. On Tuesday, in reply to Mr. Baker, the Chief Secretary stated tliat it was not intended to re move from office tlie Protector of Aborigines in the Northern Districts. At this stage of tlie proceedings the President of tlie Council, accompanied by several hon. members, left the Council Chamber for tlie pur pose of " presenting to His Excellency the reply to W" opening address. Captain Bagot's motion for a return showing the cost of the various iron material imported for the maintenance of the Port and Northern Rail ways during 1865,1866, and 1667, was discussed. The hon. mover considered there had been a con siderable amount of extravagance in the expen diture referred to. The annual cost of maintaining each, mile of railway on the I/ondon and !North 1 Western Bailway, over which 1,047 trains ran daily, was but £400; whereas here, with, sixteen ehort trains per day on the Port lane, and six on 1 tlie North tine, the annual cost of maintenanc...

At first I thought the crew were fighting, and so hurried on iny clothes as fast as possible. "When I opened my state-room door I found everything in the direst confusion; the tables had been set for breakfast, and everything was ready for an early meal; the reckless and hor rified passengers were rushing in hot haste to the forward part of the boat; no tongue can possibly describe the horror of the scene at this period. Men, women, and children, many of them with very slight protection against the cold morning airin the way of clothing, r...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. On Friday Mr. Strangways drew attention to the fact that last session the Souse ordered a report from the Surveyor-General on alleged eri'oneouB"snrveys by Captain Douglas, and asked why such report had not been laid before the House. The Treasurer promised to enquire, and if there -was any such report to lay it upon the table. Mr. Cavenagli called the Attomey-G-eneral's attention to the alleged illegal compromise effected in the case of the Attorney-G-eneral v. Hughes and others, and asked whether the Attorney-G-eneral had become a party to such compromise; whether if the compromise was about to take place, the Attorney-G-eneral, as plaintiff, had knowledge of the same; and if so, what were the proposed terms of such compro mise, and how far did they affect the rights of the Crown, or those of the claimants to the Moonta property. The formal answer of the Attorney-General was to the effect that he had read in the newspapers the remarks of the Primary Judge, but h...

Defendant admitted the debt, and consented to judgment for the amount. Mr. Emerson then applied for compensation to his client for his arrest, as he was not about to leave the colony, nor had he led any one to believe he was about to do so.

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1868. THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
Ctje Stajmit&a f&nattJ. FBI DAY, AUGUST 21, 1868. THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. At length, thanks to the motioa of our senior member, this long-vexed question has been referred to a Parliamentary Select Committee, with, a view of ascer taining precisely the weak points of the present system, and of devising some plan whereby these defects may be remedied. We cannot say that, as a rule, much value is to be placed! on the labours of Select Committees-or, rather, perhaps we should say that the slight importance generally to be attached to their efforts is due not SG much to a want of diligent labour on the part of such Committees, but rather to the fact that, as a rule, the actual results are altogether disproportionate to the work peformed. The old, old story of the mouutain in labour bringing forth a mouse is usually an adequate description of the efforts and results of Select Committees. If the report, when brought up, coincides with the preconceived notions of the mem bers ...
WATERVALE. August 11, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
WATER VALE. ?From our own Correspondent.! August 11, 1868. With all our progress in trade (civilization I .was going to say) and importance, we have not succeeded in obtaining one veiy necessary adden dum to our comfort-that is, a trooper. The presence of one of these gentlemen as a resident among us would doubtless tend to keep more peace and quietness in the village. Many are the complaints made of drunken rows and brawls, which, however profitable they may be to some, are certainly not conducive to the comfort of others; nor do they produce a moral or sanitary influence on the village at large. But we are looking forward to the time when our wishes in this respect are likely to be gratified.
