KAPUNDA PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
KAPUNDA PLOUGHING MATCH. The rather unpleasant, though at the a time welcome and seasonable wet weather which prevailed up to Monday last caused some doubts to. be entertained by those interested as to how the.Ploughing Match and Show of Stock would go off; but on Monday the rain passed away, and the sun shone out gloriously, and this state of weather fortunately continued, so that the Com mittee could not possibly havewishedfor afiner day. The site which had been fixed upon for the match was in Mr. James Robert's land at Rose Hill Farm, Allen's Creek. The ground, though the best that could be ob tained, was not what could have been desired to show off the ploughing-the soil being too loose and sandy, having also been too recently ploughed; nevertheless, it was easy to see that most of the ploughmen wete expert hands; and the conclusion arrived at by practical men was that the piece of ground used for the match would be thoroughly well, ploughed, even if it did not look quite so wel...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. On Friday some discussion took place as to tlie advisability of Select Committees appointing their own reporters, or of leaving it in the hands of the Clerk of the House, as had previously been done. On the one hand, it was contended that it was not well that members should be open to solicitation for the appointment by those who reported the Parliamentary proceedings for the Press; and on the other, that it was unwise. to place so much patronage at the disposal of the Clerk of the House, who might happen to appoint as reporter one who, though efficient, was perso j nally disagreeable to the members of the Com? mittee. After several members-Mr. Townsend, I Mr. Hay, and others-had spoken, the discussion dropped. In reply to a question by Mr. Hay, the Com missioner of Public Works stated that a con tractor for sleepers for the Port Line having i failed to cany out his contract, another person was allowed to take it up at the same price; and another contractor was al...

KADINA. September 2, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
KADINA. ["From our own Correspondent.! September 2,1868. Our township has been very quiet during, the past few weeks; nothing .whatever has appeared in the shape of amusement for a considerable time. Professor Morris, alias Muggeridge, arrived here about a fortnight ago, and announced his in tention of lecturing on astronomy; he spoke of the success lie had met with, at Kapunda, having had as many as 180 persons present at one of his lectures; unfortunately however'for the Professor, a day or so before his intended lecture, a paragraph appeared in the Register, fully revealing his character, and mentioned his attempts to do the .people of Mount Gambier; of course lifi CQj^d^not face this, and the next day lie made Ms exit on foot, leaving the payment of Ms: landlord till a more convenient season.

Mollomay's Ointment and Pills. Abscesses, Erysipelas, Piles.-Unvarying success attends all who treat these diseases according to the simple printed directions wrapped around each, pot and box. They are invaluable to the young and timid, wliose baslifulness sometimes endangers life. A little attention, moderate apr severeaee, and trifling expense will enable the most diffident to conduct any case to a happy issue, without exposing secret infirmities to anyone. The Ointment-arrests the spreading inflammation, restrains the excited vessels, cools the overheated skin, alleviates throbbing and smarting pains, and gives great ease. The same directions also clearly point out when and how Holloway's Pills are to be taken, that their purifying and regulating powers may assist by adjusting and strengthening the constitution.-Advt.

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, September 3, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. ; JTTrom our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, September 3,1868. I So this infatuated colony ig to have a Scotch 2mm-to rale over it- The Duke of Buckingham must think we are iar gone to require such despe rate remedies. Sir James Fergusson will be the foist Governor we have had fraan the Worth side of the Tweed, and I hope for Auld Reekie's Bake be will prove none of the worst. Like the Engineer-in-Chief, he has the best of credentials, and what is more, his precedents will bear investi gation- It may not be necessary, however, to go as far back as the Register-namely, to the days of Bruce and of Fergus Fergusson, the first of that ilk. According to Burke, he was the founder of the Kilkerran, and the first Laird of Kilkerran, whilk lands and tenements he received by royal charter from Bobert Bruce aforesaid. Since the days of Fergus the family have had a good many nps and downs, as the short-legged man said of himself ; hut vith Caledonian sagacity, they have ta&am...

JOKES UPON SCOTCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
JOKES UPON SCOTCHMEN. There really exist Scotchmen who hate Dr. Johnson with a deadly hatred on account of his jokes upon their country.. Witticisms thattbey would contemptuously sneer at if they met them m the columns of a comic journal, rankle in their bosom when winded with tbe authority of the old Fleet-street tyrant One can easily imagine Dr. Johnson's delight on dis covering- that his careless raillery was accepted as a series oi grave accusations against Scotland,. Who does not remem ber Boswell's first introduction to him, when the trembling laird was forced to confess that he had come from Scotland ? " That, sir, I find is what a very great many of your c^^fcrymen cannot help." In these days the joke seems neither very smart nor very new- There is about as much wit in it as there is logic in such an argument as " Sir, yon are a fool." Biff, ""says Boswell, " this stroke stunned me a good deal, and when we had sat down, I 1'elt myself not a little em j barrassed and apprehen...
CORRESPONDENCE. OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-That the present; system of education is susceptible of improvement is a phrase too much used, and often by persons who would destroy the present syBtem, yet are unable to propose a better, consequently a vast amount of grumbling is created by a few thoughtless words. The leader in your last issue contains three distinct charges-the reading of the Bible, grant ing laxger stipends to the centres of population, and, lastly, the inefficiency of the teachers. With, the first, teachers have nothing to do. Their instructions are printed on their licences, and the cause of all this ill-feeling is only of about five or six years' growth. You point out two means of solving this difficulty-a denomi national schooland a permissive secular one ; the first would never answer, for this ample reason each sect would be entitled to their share of the giant, and they as licencees would only en courage their particular Mends-a result not at al...

THE GREAT LION-FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 4 September 1868
THE GfiEAT LION-FIGHT. The introduction of zoological gardens has rendered people much more familiar with the nrmfisd creation than they formerly were. For many years the travelling wild-beast show of Wombwell has been well known. It was with a view of getting money by bringing his lions more into public notice that the proprieter, in the year 1825, spread widely the report that he had matched his largest lion to fight six dogs of the bull "and mastiff breed, for a stake of £5,000. This report created a sensation of no common kind; exciting the indignation of the humane, and pandering to the barbarity of the crueL The sporting classes were in a fever, and the dog fighting world rabid with anticipation. The press was loud in its denunciations of a spectacle BO inhuman; but covefcousness is cruel, and "Wombwell was not to be persuaded to abandon, the golden harvest he hoped to reap. It had been more than two centuries since a. lion-fight had taken place in England; the en counter in t...

HAMILTON. ("From our own 'Correspondent^ August 31,1868. A grand dinner and ball were held here last week in connection with the Lodge of the M.tH ; established in this district. It is gratifying to all! lovers of brother love and kindly feeling to se$ these pleasant peaceful reunions, where members of various creeds and different nationalities assemble to quaff the social bowl and " trip the light fantastic toe"-where the mystic bond of brotherhood draws one and all together in sweet unity. One is apt at these times to believe in Dr. Cumming, and the speedy fulfilment of his mOlenium prophecies. In fancy's vision we already view the lion reposing, smiling at the. lamb, &c.
