SADDLEWORTH. September 9, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 11 September 1868
SADDLEWORTfl. ["From our own Correspondent.! September 9,1868. J naiiway operations are Demg carneaon rapicuy i in this neighbourhood. It is almost surprising j to see what id done in so short time. The ground j in the various cuttings seems to be favourable so fer. The inhabitants are beginning to stir them selves a little from their general apathy. A Mutual Improvement Society is established, and the first meeting was held on Friday evening last, when recitations and orations were given by three of the members. A Crieket Club was also formed a few weeks since. The members meet for exercise every Saturday afternoon. I hear that there is some likelihood of a Hanging school being opened. Whether it will be a fact or not I cannot say ., if so, it will be fine amusement for those who have nothing else to do.
WIDTH OF TERES ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 11 September 1868
WIDTH OF TERES ACT. TO THE EDITOB. Sir--Mr. Bean, in moving for leave to amend the Width, of Tires Act, said the intention was good but the measure went too for. I think it did not go far enough. It should give those carters that make a living on the roads a licence to carry an extra weight-say 10j per month for every cwt. per inch of bearing surface, and all fines and fees to be spent on the road. Surely the carters cannot grumble to pay for the damage they do the roads when they pay nothing towards mating them? For the farmers in general it will do no injury. Their horses are usually worked in pairs at home and on the road, and the load allowed by the Act is more than is gene rally carried. If more is put on they spoil their horses and break things; but if some of them will do it, treat them the same as the carters make them pay extra for the luxury. By inserting the above you will oblige. I am, Sir, FABMESi
SKILLOGOLEE GREEK. September 3, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 11 September 1868
SKILLOGOLEE GREEK. fFrom our own Correspondent] j September 3,1868. The anniversary services of the Wesleyan Chapel, Orchard Farm, Skillogolee, were held on Sunday and Monday, August 30 and 31. Two sermons were preached on Sunday to attentive congregations, that in the morning by the Bev. J. S. Greer, of Auburn, and in the evening by Mr Andrews, of Bhynie. On Monday the customary tea and public meetings were held; the attendance being faar considering the bad state of the roads after the rain; I allude mainly to the excellent (?) Government-road through Skillogolee. The nsuc.l addresses, votes of thanks, &c., brought profitable services to a close. September 8. It certainly is a comfort to think that a " con tented mind is a continual feast; as, if such is the case, and the farmers round here are to be relied on, their declared contentment at the appearance of afiairs-meteorological, agricultural, and political-will most surely ^cause them to " grow fatthe opinion round here...
HAMILTON. Wednesday, September 9. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 11 September 1868
HAMILTON. FFrom our own Correspondent.! Wednesday, September 9. 1 The cutting and bridge are fast approaching completion. We have been very merry here lately; what with grand dinners and balls in connection with sundry friendly lodges, and the effects of our bracing, exhilirating air has shown itself by a little excitement at each festival Bat although one brother punched another brother's head, after the majesty of the law had asserted herself, and the " fine bim and take him away" had been uttered, the thunderstorm blew over, and all are good friends again. Last week another of our Sixpenny Headings was held, but the attendance was rather slack, and from want of one or two of the usual sources of fun being absent, it passed off rather quietly. Mr. Brown, of Beylands, presided, and some lady amateurs from Kapunda kindly assisted at the piano. The proceedings comprised a duet by lady amateurs; readings by Messrs. Cr. Mugg, W. Kelly, and S. Small; recitations by Messrs. S. Pinson, W....

A DUNEDIN OPINION OF TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
A DUNEDIN OPINION OF TASMANIA. Tasmania is an island in difficulties. It seems to be altogether a most unfortuate little island, though why it sliould be so is by no means obvious. It is not wanting in natural advantages. Both its soil and its climate are excellent; so much so, indeed, that many -writers have Bpoken of it as the Garden of Australia. The beauty of its scenery, combined with the mildness of its climate, have made it popular among the wealthier people of New South Wales and Victoria, as a delightful place1 of resort during the months of summer. There is nothing about the country to discourage the settler. He is not called upon to contend with droughts and floods, and to struggle on from year to year with doubtful fortune. lie is not without a market for his produce. He is .not placed in the midst of an unsettled popu lation. He is better off than the farmer in England, and better off than the farmer in most parts of Australia. The squatter is as well treated by Nature ...
A SLAVE'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
A SLAVE'S REVENGE. A slave-dealer named Matthew Hobson, who dwelt on the sea-coast of Virginia some years ago, and whose darkness of complexion gained for liim the cognomen of " Black Matt/' once pur chased a mulatto, called Sam, who could read and .write, and was much more intelligent than his class generally are, but whose numerous bad qualities, including thieving, lying, and drunken ness, induced the party from whom Black Matt bought him to ask a very moderate price. Sam's new master used the lash pretty freely on the shoulders of the slave, and Sam vowed to be revenged for the treatment he had received. Black Matt, having done something to cure Sam of his bad qualities, shipped him, with a gang of slaves, to 2few Orleans, and on arriving at that port dressed Sam up like a gentleman, and sent him on shore to show himself off, the object being to get a high price for him as the body servant of some rich planter. During his stroll in the cify, hearing a portly gentleman express a ...
HOW TO SAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
HOW TO SAVE. Keen workmen have told us that among their own comrades the inability of some quite sober and industrious men to lay by a pound amounts to a mental incapacity, and we can see for our selves that the statement is just as true of the professionals. The latter have, it is true, learned to dread poverty for women-as their daughters cannot wort-with a dread which instils one form of thrift, and a shocking wasteful form it is in the long run-and they do subscribe to life offices, but with that exception there is not a pin to choose between them and the workmen. They do not keep Saint Monday^ but are just as short sighted as if they did. "We have often wondered why so many men, not vicious, or luxurious, or stupid, find it so hard to save; whether it would be possible to implant in lads the spirit of saving, as it is possible to implant the spirit of study, or am bition, or, as we believe, though this will be denied, the habit of calculation. No doubt a born instinct has somet...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1868. BAD TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
Wijt Itapuittia f^etaltr. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18,1868. BAD TIMES. That tlie times are out of joint so far as Kapunda is concerned is a self-evident truth, which must be impressed on all who, having been familiar with the appearance of our township a year or two back, now walk up and down our business streets. Then, every shop in the street was let, and all were doing a thriving business. Drays from the country were continually bring ing in produce, and returning thither heavily laden with the wares from the marts of our tradesmen. Money was plentiful; and, rather unwisely, so also was credit. Our tradesmen were busy from morning to night, pleased with the present prosperity, and firmly believing in its continuance. Buildings of a costly nature were b^ing erected on all hands, and land in Kapunda assumed a fictitious value. Each.- man believed the other to be doing well, and each based his calculations of future progress on the present ratio, on which assumption that great bane of comm...

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, September 17, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. JTrom our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, September 17, 1888. The Assembly has been working up fat its week's holiday, and has done more -work daring the past three days than if it had been sitting for the whole fortnight. On Tuesday it smashed the Attorney-General's Court of Appeals Abolition Bill by a majority of; fifteen. The Government had taken every precaution to ensure a victory, and their arrangements gave all the greater eclat to their defeat. Wheii Mj. Boucaut entered opposition on the second reading, the Attorney G-eneral obtained a call of the House, about three weeks in advance, thus "making the questioa one of vital importance. A no-confidence motion or a new constitution could not have been more gingerly treated; but the fact was that some in fluential supporters of the Government were absent from the colony, and their votes "would not be obtainable for several weeks. To ^have decided the fete of the Court of Appeals without a speech jrom. Mr. Nevil...

CORRESPONDENCE. WATERING THE STREETS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. WATERING- THE STREETS. TO TEE EDITOB. Sir-As the dusty-season has put in an ap pearance unsually early this year, it would not be amiss if the Municipal Council was to take into consideration the advisability of 'watering the principal thoroughfares of the town. To business men in the Main-street the dust must prove moBfc destructive as well as annoying, for there are few articles of merchandize which become improved by repeated coatings of dust; and the probability is that most of these would willingly agree to pay a small water rate to prevent their feeling the 21 effects of DUST O!

THE JUPITER CREEK DIGGINGS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
THE JUPITER CBEEK DIGGING'S. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-Having paid a visit to the Jupiter Creek I gold diggings, I Trill just give you a hasty sketch of what I saw and heard there; and if you think it to be of any value to those who have not been on the diggings, you are at liberty to make what use of it you please. After a pleasant drive in one of Cobb's coaches of four hours, I with my fellow-passengers arrived on the Jupiter Creek. The sight of the numerous tents and the general appearance of the country called to my mind what I saw of Forest Creek and Bendigo in 1852. I then walked for some considerable distance up and down the diggings, and met with many of the unsuccessful ones, who of course did not speak in veiy favourable terms of the diggings. Among them, some of the Kapunda men, who were down Oh their dumps, and said they should quickly return if they did not soon find something. I met with others who had been more successful, and who showed me some of the gold they had taken ou...
TEMPERANCE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 18 September 1868
TEMPERANCE MEETING. A meeting in connection with, the Kapunda Branch of the South Australian Total Abstinence Alliance was held at the Baptist Chapel, Kapunda, on Tuesday evening last. The attend ance jwas but small, there being about fifty persons present. The chair was taken by the President of the Branch (Mr. D. Nock); and the meeting having been opened by singing and prayer, the Chairman delivered an appropriate introductory address, commending the objects of the Society. The Rev. Mr. Warner then addressed the meet ing. He would have felt in a better position to do so if he knew what his audience were made up of whether they were total abstainers or not. How ever, he tpok it for granted that all present were not altogether pledged teetotallers. It was an indisputable foct that the use of intoxicating drinks was productive of a vast amount of evil around them. Distress, accidents, and death, were the consequences continually resulting there from. He wondered sometimes what were t...
