SKILLOGOLEE CREEK. August 13,1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
SKILLOGOLEE CREEK. [From our own Correspondent! August 13,1868. I The agitation in reference to the "Width of Tires and other Acts has subsided. Most of the vehicles round here bear their owners' name and address, in compliance with the provisions of the Act; and to all vehicles so ornamented has been unanimously voted the appellation of " Travelling directory." A mania seems to have broken out amongst the cattle round here, better known as the " trespass ing mania," which I suppose is to be accounted for by the cattle taMng the same view in connec tion with the cropB that we do, viz., that they look welL Indeed the frequent incursions made by them into the various wheat paddocks (without any authority) warrants the supposition. They break down raal fences, &c., without the slightest compunction, or consideration for the owners; and although frequently pounded in return for their indefatigable exertions and thieving propensities, yet the punishment seems to have no effect wh...

Holloway's Pills.-Excellent Revivers. -The resources of medicine and chemistry were long and fruitlessly tried before they yielded a remedy winch could overcome disorders of the stomach and nerves, till Professor Holloway dis covered his purifying and tonic Pills. They are the safest and surest correctives of indigestion, heartburn, flatulency, torpidity of the liver, witchings, nervous fancies, despondency, low spirits, and declining strength. Holloway's Pills supersede all erroneous actions in the body, and so strengthen and support the system, that disease departs, and leaves the patient little, if at all, shaken. This is the grand aim and object of medical art-to regulate disordered functions without damaging the constitution by the remedy j and admirably is this end attained by Holloway's Pills ,-A.dvt.

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, August 20,1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. pTrom our own Correspondent.! Adelaide, August 20,1868. The Almanda is afloat, and shares are selling " freely at £18 to £20. A email "bar of native ' silver has been exhibited oil Green's Exchange,, and has paid the brokers betterthan the miners, I fancy. Barnum's woolly horse could not have , turned people's heads more, or cleared their purses more effectually. The new mines being within an easy drive of town has been worth half a dozen good lodes to them. A moderate infiision of romantic scenery with a couple of bottles of liquor, have a very mellowing influence on speculative visitors. During the celebrated expedition to the Wheal Coglin two years ago, the first sight of Sapid Bay sent shares up 20 per cent., and after dinner sellers got any price they liked to name. There has been a good deal of this at the Almanda, while the Potosi sod other imaginary ventures have had literafly . nothing else to live upon. A piece of ironstone is ; brought in from Cherry ...
PARLIAMENTARY. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
PARLIAMENTARY. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. On Tuesday, after several questions had been put and answered, Captain Bagot's motion, that the present Volunteer Force might be dis banded, and the best steps to adopt for the defence of the colony referred to the Parliament, was discussed at great length. The hon. mover complained that Government interfered unneces sarily with the internal arrangements, and alluded, in support of that view, to the case of the Kapunda Rifles, the Captain of which corps was dismissed because he remonstrated about such interference, and then because the Company complained they were ignominiously disbanded. He further objected to the present system of high pay, whereby one volunteer for five hours' duty got the pay of five regular soldies for twenty-four hours' duty. The old system, which was of a purely voluntary nature, was in his judgment far preferable. The Chief Secretary, in opposing the motion, pointed out the unfairness as to the comparison between the pay o...
DEATH OF LORD BROUGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
DEATH OF LORD BROCJGHAM. The shadow of a great man has vanished. Henry Brougham is no more. A stormy career has had a placid ending1. On Thursday night Lord Brougham passed away in his sleep, at his favourite retreat in the south of France. Politically, he had been dead long before the tenn of his I natural life. It was difficult for observers who saw the feeble and tottering figure, with its head of snow, creeping into the House of Lords, and rising there, amid forbearing silence, to mutter a tew ramb ling observations which tjhe most painful efforts could scarcely make articulate, or haunting the provincial congresses of the Social Science Association, or fluttering restlessly about the rooms of the Law Amendment Society, to believe that in it they looked on all that was left of Lord Brougham. Long before his death he had come to live a more real life in tile page of history and in the memory of younger contemporaries than in his own person. " This is he that was Brougham," seemed...

CLARE. August 19, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
CLARE. [From our own Correspondent.] August 19, 1868. Our local amateur dramatics gave two of tlieiv entertainments on the 5tTi and 6tli insts. Tliey were very well patronized on both evenings, the proceeds amounting, I believe, to about £45. This day weelr the ploughing match in con nection with the Clare Agricultural Society is to take place, on which occasion there is to be a digging match, which seems to cause much amuse ment, although I hear there will be a number of competitors. We are getting beautiful showers now, which; after the few weeks of nearly dry weather is very refreshing. The wheat and grain is now mating good head way, and we are looMng forward to an abundant harvest.
THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS. The very heart of the cricketing county of Kent was invaded by a band of abori gines, who have come all the way from Australia to try their skill in this notably English game against some of its best players. It is for no mere acrobatic exhibition of the quickness and agility natural to Indians that these dusky /UpirPTis of the bush are to be brought into the field. On this day week they will meet a Surrey eleven on the Oval; and they are just now practising on the old Kentish ground at Town Mailing, against a few choice bowlers, whose names even in that capital county of the game are held in high note amongst professional men. It is highly interesting and carious, and must of course, like everything else, as be taken'a sign of the time?, and index of the Cumnung millenium, to see mixed in a friendly game on the most historically Saxon part of our island, representatives of two races so far removed from each other as the modern Englishman and the aborigina...
THE DESTITUTE BOARD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 21 August 1868
THE DESTITUTE BOAKD. TO TUB EDITOR. Sir-Having seen a leading article in the Herald of last week about the Destitute Board, wliicli, if I read rightly, was suggested by a re mark made by the Mayor at the Corporation meeting, when W. Craig asked to have his rates remitted in consequence of his being in destitute circumstances. Now, as I am fully acquainted with his case, I think it due to the Destitute Board to lay the following facts of the case before you and the public; from which it will be seen that the Destitute Board lave been far from treating him unfairly or unkindly. Erst I must premise that Craig came to me on or about the 29th July, and stated that his wife was just con fined, and that there was no food in the house for her or for her family, and that they were then starving. I told Tnrn to go to the Mayor and he would give him an order for rations; to whicli he replied that lie had already applied for them, and was. refused by the Destitute Board. Hearing this, and wishi...

Uolloway's Pills. Dyspeptic Dis orders.-Most of the diseases of the digestive organs consist in a weakness of the affected parts, causing a deficiency or depravity of the bile or gastric juice. These Pills re-establish the right performance of these functions, and thus triumph antly restore and renovate appetite, digestion, and health. Uolloway's Fills perpetually present cures of chronic indigestion and its attendant maladies, that can hardly be relieved, and certainly that never were cured by any other means, medicinal, dietitic, or otherwise. They are admirably adapted for every class and every constitution. Uolloway's Fills cannot be equalled for the purifying, soothing, and regulating powers they exercise over all diseases 01 the digestive mucous, and muscular systems, and they are peculiarly efficacious in nervous debility. It is reported of more than one Court Fool, and among others of Triboulet, the fool of Francis I., that when told by his sovereign that if a certain courti...

C|)e HapunXia Serais* FRIDAY, AUGUST 28,1868. THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. As we stated in our last, the Govern ment has adopted the policy of the House of Assembly with respect to the manage ment of our white elephant difficulty. We are glad tbat the Cabinet wisely deter mined to look upon the action of the House in this matter as an expression of its readiness to aid the Government in this crisis rather than foolishly to regard the rejection ot the Ministerial scheme as a j vote of censure. The resolutions arrived at amounted to this-that the Northern Territory Act is to be amended by ex tending the term within which the land j is to be ready for the selection of the order-holders, to whom an additional area j of land is to be granted as compensation j for delay, and meanwhile the long-deferred j surveys are to be made without any un necessary delay. Providing ahvays that the order-holders are agreeable to consent to this extension of time and compensation therefor, we think the House ...
WHY IS SINGLE LIFE BECOMING MORE GENERAL? [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 28 August 1868
WHY IS STNGLE LIFE BECOMING MORE GENERAL ? To commence housekeeping at tlie present day is no light affair. Let the young couple be willing to start modestly and live economically, yet they must have the necessaries and the decencies of life. They must have furnace and range, hot and cold water, marble mantelpieces and wash-basins, sofas and carpets, silver table-service and pictures on the wall. They must have servants to cook and do the housework ; for in the costly course of study in which Jennie has passed her life liitherfco no instruction nor practice in these branches was given. Then the children must not grow up in ignorance. They must have a good education. They must remain in school the whole year round or be put down in their classes. The sons must be sent to college and the daughters go to a semiuary or private school till twenty " to be finished." Their children must be dressed well, so as not to be put to shame among their school- i mates. The need of married life so m...
PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 28 August 1868
PLOUGHING MATCH. Wednesday next will be a great day with our agriculturists, for at that time they will muster in force on the tented field to witness the contest for pre-eminence by the various competitors in the plough ing match. Competition is undoubtedly the greatest incentive to excellence in wnatever branch of arts or sciences it exists; and hence we consider the institu tion of ploughing matches to have been a very wise step in a country which, like ours, has to regard agriculture as her mainstay. We are essentially a wheat growing community, and on our success in this branch of industry our reputation for some to come must rest. It therefore becomes our bounden duty to take ail reasonable means to ensure farming opera tions being carried out in such a manner as shall tend to second the bounties of nature in that respect. South Australian grain has already made itself a name in the European markets, and it is for us to take care that by no neglect on our part shall our produc...
OUR RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 28 August 1868
OUR RAILWAYS. The following is an extract from the Engineer-in-Chief's report on " Hailwavs ; Constructed," contained in the Public Works Report just laid before Par liament : I have appended here a very elaborate and detailed report, which I have received from the Resident-Engineer of -the Port and North Tlines of Railways, now opened for public traffic. It will be necessary that I should allude to seve ral items which will be found in this report, and to respectfully request your favourable conside ration of the proposals which I am about to make. In the first place, I would draw your atten tion to the very heavy amount annually expended in maintaining and repairing the fencing of these I railways. The fencing between Gawler and [ Eapunda consists, for the most part, of pine I posts and mallee rails, which are perfectly rotten, and are continually Tinder repair. The fencing generally is bad; and that por tion between Salisbury and Eapunda must shortly be renewed. I, therefore, mos...

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. ("From our own Correspondent.]} Adelaide, Angus!; 27,1868. I Tlie Assembly have taken the leap in tlie dark on the Northern Territory resolutions, and hurled defiance at Mir. Anstey. There is to be no money returned, hut the order-holders may hare as much extra land as they please-Mr. Colton hav ing made them welcome to the whole of Arnheim'a Land, if they can stomach Captain Cadell's reports upon it. After my last letter, the debate was continued till Thursday night, the young members coming in strong at the end about their duty to the taxpayers of South Australia they represented. Mr. Strangways made a very remark able addendum to his first speech on Tuesday. He then intimated that he had a policy, but as the House had enough before it already, he would take compassion on its nerves. On Thurs day, when the tide had set in strong for the Liverpool Elver, he endeavoured to prove that therewas no necessity for hurrying. In respect of legal consistency and compreh...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 20. [Before Dr. Tallis, J.P.] MAGrSTEEIAL. Michael W heelan was charged by Mr. C. W. Cowper with being drunk and creating a dis turbance on tlie previous day in the Sir John Franklin Hotel. He pleaded guilty. Mr. Cowper -was examined, and stated that W heelan came into the hotel on the previous afternoon, accompanied by two other persons, and called for "drinks" for himself and those who were with him. Witness did not perceive at first that W heelan was drunk. He served him withwhat lie called for,and on requesting payment prisoner became most abusive, and refused to pay. Witness then sent for a trooper and gave him in charge. Tfis Worship remarked that the case was of a most aggravated nature, inasmuch as the prisoner not only obtained the drink without paying for it, but afterwards abused the landlord. He fined the prisoner 20/ and costs.
