GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] December 9, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 10 December 1878
GAWLER. J~From our own Correspondent.^] December 9, 1878. Our municipal elections are all over, and the newly-elected Mayor and Councillors sworn in. We had a close contest for the Mayoralty; every rote was hunted up by the Committees of the candidates. Our Musical Union is not doing much in the way of practising now, they having to postpone their usual practices for a fortnight at a time, the Institute being otherwise en gaged by the various companies now going through Jthe country. The Institute Com mittee don't seem to encourage the Society in any way—rather the opposite. Our cricketers are -mkaing an effort to get Lord Harris and his team to visit Gawlerand play a matoh against the local club. If the Hon. W. Diiffield would allow them to use his splendid grounds, no doubt the northern folks would muster strongly to see those knights of the willow display their skill against our cricketers. The Tramway is fast approaching comple tion. Another week I think will finish it. Business...
MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.] December 2, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 10 December 1878
MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.] December 2, 1878. My letter this week will be very brief, for two reasons ; firstly, your correspondent has been rery unwell (a fact which I don't sup pose will interest me ny of yourTeaders), and, secondly, because I have little of very great interest to communicate (which fact all your readers will be doubtless gla-I of, as they will be spared the infliction of reading through a column and a half of my scribblings.) The first thing that comes to my recollection is that although Sir George Bowen is stil. nominally Governor, yet we have now anotlie ruler, and this ruler is dubbed by the title or king. How Her Maje ty t,f England wilf brook the anomaly of having an independent monarch in this part of her realms is un certain. The name of the new!) self-created monarch is King Boo-hoo, and his authority is principally evinced at public meetings, where in his own despotic manner he prevents any one hut himself being heard. In my last I mentioned...

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, December 9, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 10 December 1878
OTJE CITY LETTER pFrom our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, December 9, 1878. The Saturday half-holiday movement, which has for many classes of the commu nity been for some time past an established fact, is now happily being extended to other classes who are just as much in need of it as the rest. Four firms of machinists and iron mongers have advertised their intention to elose at 2 p.m. on Saturdays. This is as it should be, and their names deserve to be placed on record as an example to others. They sre Messrs. Phillips & Co., J". & G-. Bam say, Padman & Co., and Brown & Wood. It is likely that before long the practice will be generally followed, and it will be a fine thing for the drapers' employees if the example of early closing on Saturday set by Mr. J. M. Anderson is followed by the rest of the trade. In this climate, and in the summer months especially, everyone is the better for a little relaxation from the monotonous toil of the week, beyond t...
ALONZO JONES'S ELECTION EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 10 December 1878
ALONZO JONES'S ELECTION EXPERIENCE. A correspondent just returned from Hum bugiana, has sent us the following:— " Alonzo he was handsome," and despite the extreme wncorumoness of his name, Alonzo was also excessively gay. A smile con tinually played over his benign countenance, and his merry gibes would oft make Mrs. Alonzo Jones's sides ache -with laughter. " Poor dear," as Mr. J. would say, " 1 fear you'll hurt yourself," was a remark pretty well stereotyped in the household. Now Jones in order to cheer his leisure moments inwardly resolved to serve his country in some way or other. He would not join the volun teers, and get tutored in the art of warfare, but—rash Alonzo !—rather learn how tc get roads macadamized—whatever that may mean —" curb " the " bits of streets, &c. Yes, the acme of Alonzo's ambition was to becom-3 a full-fledged member of the Council belong ing to the Town of Humbugiana. Accord ingly he told the partner of his joys and sor rows, and forthwith went ...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE INTERCOLONIAL ATHLETIC FESTIVAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 10 December 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. It mast be understood that we do not necessarily endorse tlie opinions of Correspondents under this heading. THE INTERCOLONIAL ATHLETIC FESTIVAL. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—On Friday last I observed a letter in your paper from Mr. J. Morcom in reference [ to tlie Oup I won at the Intercolonial Festi val. Sir, vou inspected that cap, and it was also examined by one of the leading jewellers of this town. Mr. Morcom states that the value of the cup is £1 Is. I should very much lite to kiiow the name of the "leading shop" at which it was purchased ; because they did not forget to put putty or some other substance in the crack in the handle—but they forgot one tiling, that is to clean off the rust. Mr. Morcom says we should not tell falsehoods : he mentions that the prizes were sent five days after the sports ; but it was eleven before I received mine and thirteen before Messrs Mugg and Conway received theirs. He also! states thas the Cup must have been broken on its way hero ; t...

Sydney, December 7. The men employed by the A.S.N. Company have been assaulted by some of the men on strike. They Lave petitioned the Govern ment for adequate protection. The police are taking active measures to prevent further anti-Chinese disturbances.

KILKERRAN. [From our own Correspondent.] December 9, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 December 1878
KILKERRAN. ("From our own Correspondent.] December 9, 1878. Reaping is now general in this Hundred, and I am sorry to say tbe crops are not turn ing out anything like the farmers anticipated. Six or seven bushels will be about tbe average or even less, while some of the fine heavy looking crops about Maitland are almost a complete failure; one crop in particular, about 300 acres, stood as high as the fence, and judging from appearance, one might think it would average 15 or 18 bushels'per acre, but the greater portion is now reaped, and the yield, to the disappointment of the owner, is only three and a half bushels per acre. The wheat buyers at Port Victoria are J beginning to exercise a good deal of activity in the way of preparations for the busy time. I hear there is a vessel chartered to be loaded . for Englaiid from this Port. We have no less than five or six buyers this year. I 1 think the principal buyers will be Mr. H. Hincks and Messrs. Darling & Co's. agent, as the...

DUTTON TOWN. [From our own Correspondent.] December 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 December 1878
DUTTON TOWN. [Fi-om our own Correspondent.] December 10, 1878. Reaping commenced m this neighbourhood last week, and all are now busily employed in gathering in tlie golden grain. From what I can learn tlie wheat is yielding fairly with a good sample, but it is not expected that the average will be high. On the Murray Mats the rabbits and kangaroos have made sad havoc among6t tlie crops. One farmer in formed me that the rabbits have cleared off fully seventy acres of his crop. Another one has been glad to dispose of his farm at a low price on account of the destructive pests, and others are about to follow his example and clear out. The task of destroying the rabbits in the localities above referred to will be no easy one, in fact, some aver it is impossible. The stifling process will not avail, as instead of having extensive burrows the animals live under the bushes and amongst the rocks, and the only way of killing them is with dogs and guns, which will be an almost endless work w...
BROADBRIM'S PARIS LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 13 December 1878
BROADBRIM'S PARIS LETTER. If there is one characteristic which distin guishes the United States Department more than another, it is the practical every day utility of everything you see. To the Euro pean ' who has studied Brother Johathan through the medium of Sam Slick or the broad caricatures of Yankee Hill, it is a some what startling revelation that the youug man who was once Brother Jonathan, but has now become Uncle Sam, is one of the most orna mental and aesthetic of all ornamental and aesthete persons.' His Kentucky jeans which used to reach half way between his ankle and his knee are changed for the finest of cassi meres, his necktie of blue or yellow or green is replaced by the most immaculate of choak ers. He never wears an Alexander larger than six and three-quarters, and the set of his superb swallow-tail ie the wonder and delight of all the young bloods along the boulevards. Brother Jonathan is not what he was. " Our Gal,3' as pictured by Mrs. Williams.a few i years ag...
