TELEGRAPHIC EXTENSION AND THE GREENOCK JAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 August 1864

TELEGRAPHIC EXTENSION AND THE OREENOCK JAY. With the exception of good toads for traffic, there is perhaps no subject of such vital interest to the community, as rapidity and certainty of communicating intelligence; for this reason the extension of the ElectricTelegraph, is eagerly sought for by all parties as soon as it appears justifiable either by the natural increase and growth of population, or the rapid spread ot its business transactions, me District of Barossa owes much to its mem ber, Mr. J. Williams, as one of the first to bring this subjeot prominently before the electors, and the steps subsequently taken are, we think, mninly due to his energetic advocacy of the subject during bis canvass. But, from whatever cause it may be, Barossa has been roused from a state of apathy to one of action, and the English and German elements of its po pulation unite in an imperative demand for the right of enjoying their share of the benefits of a Telegraphic system of which they in commo...

THE EDITOR TO HIS READERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 August 1864

THE EDITOR TO HIS READERS. It is now twelve months since the Editor of tlie Bunyip addressed his first words to his readers The Bunyip has arrived at the first milestone on the road to the Temple of Fame, — on the whole it has been a pleasant road ; to be sure there were pit falls laid for him, but he avoided them. Occasionally he encountered a mud hole* out ue jumped over it ; at one time 111s passage was stopped by a bar, but he paid the shilling- toll and passed on free. Dwellers by the road side, old fashioned fogies, and ill-wishers, prognosticated that he would be stuck up half way, and that his queer little vehicle would never be able lo pass over the rough parts, but would come to grief before two thirds of the distance were passed, and various tiles were wagered by several of the doubters on the event, (we hope that as they have been fairly won, *hey will be honorably paid ;) but doubt is now turned to certainty, and the Editor meets his readers to-day for the twelfth time....

WITH BRAINS, SIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 September 1864

WITH BRAINS, SIR. The following- article is so truly Bun yipian, that we have ventured to extract it bodily from the pages of our Melbourne contemporary, the Medi&tl and tSurgioal Review : — By a new use of an old word to meet colonial wants, an uproar in any assembly which should be decorous, is called a * scene. ' Such a seen* as never before was seen in rowdy parliament, town council, or medical society of 'roughs came off last Thursday in the anatomical theatre of the University— of that University founded by the politest get-Ueman .in the colony, to counteract colonial, proclivity for sinking — to correct low habits by lower agents.
