THE MARQUIS OF HASTINGS AS A TURF DEFAULTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
THE MARQUIS OF HASTINGS AS A TURF DEFAULTER. The periodical excitement awakened by each recurrence of the gr^at anniversary race at Epsom derives special intensity this year from the peculiar and painful position occupied hy the Marquis of Has tings. That the owner of the first favou rite for the Derby-himself a member of the Jockey Club-should at the same moment be u tbe greatest defaulter on the Turf," is an anomaly without a prece dent in the long an4 eventful annals of that national institution. On many pre vious occasions we have had to sound an alarm on the subject of the progressive deterioration in the stamina of the thoroughbred, and in the morale of those who frequent our racecourses. We have never concealed our opinion that the downfall of one of the no*)le>r public sporrs in which any nation ever in dulged would be a truly deplorable event. Having at heart the interests of tbe Turf, and heartily desiring to minister to its I perpetuity, we shall not be accused of a pr...
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST AGRI CULTURAL IMPLEMENTS. The variety and excellence of agricul tural implements is so great that the prudent farmer in regard to that, as well as in every other branch of his art, must study economy. He should not incur an unnecessary expense in buying them, nor in purchasing more than are essentially requisite, and can be profitable used This maxim ought to be more especially attended to by young improvers, who are often tempted, under the specious idea of diminishing1 labour, and saving expense, to buy a superfluous quantity of imple ments, which they afterwards find are of little use It is remarked by an intelli gent author on matters of husbandry, that a great diversity of implements causes dis appointment rather than satisfaction to the farmer. In purchasing implements the following rules are to be observed:-They should be simple in their construction, both that their uses may be easily understood, and that any common workman may be able to repair them w...
THE STOMACH AND M. BLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
THE STOMACH AiND M. BLOT. People should take heed of what they eat and drink, not only on physical grounds, but on account of those of morality. It lias becu well said that fat men are never heard of as heading riots or leading revolutions. This is true, for the very simple reason that their stomachs are always in order, and that, consequently, they are at peace with themselves and with the world. It is your thin, bilious, acrid dyspeptics who are the fomenters of trouble and confusion. A gourmet, besides being a quiet, orderly member of society, is a philosophic example well worthy of imitation. Let the soul-darkening storm of politics rave ever so turbulently, he assumes that things will come right in the end, and addresses himself to dinner with an unburdened mind. For him no atra cnra post equitem sedet. Shaks peare says that ail undigested pea may ruin an empire. What, then, may not be the sequence when the whole body rises in revolt against its food P The Puritans of Old and N...
BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS I _ A young eripple, named Mary Ann Burley, living about four miles from York, in a fit of despondency at the apprehension of her sister on a change of robbery, threw herself, on Saturday, August, 1, under the engine of a train which her own brother happened to be driving. He thought at first she intended to speak to him from the side of the line, but when her rash act was committ ed he became nearly frantic, and it required, the utmost efforts of the stoker to keep him lrom leaping off the engine. The poor girl was shock ingly mutilated, but did not die till the same night. A fatal accident is reported at Chamouuix. A young lady, Miss Stevens, who was on a visit to Chamouuix, with her mother, brother, and sister, has been killed at the Mer do Glace. It appears that the unfortunate young lady was with her friends, and happening to touch something with her alpenstock, a very large stone became de tached, and, falling upon her head, killed her in stantly. ...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. MONDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1868. Present-His Worship the Mayor, Councillors Bruce, Mellor, Nock, Nicholson, Newman, and Rowc ; and the Town Clerk. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. His Worship stated that Councillor Harden had asked him to request the Council to excuse his absence, as he had no one at home to look after his business. Declined, on the ground that Councillor Harden was not absent from Kapunda, and that he had not sent in a written excuse. j Councillor Harden was accordingly fined 2/6 : for absence from Finance Committee and 2/6 for | absence from Council. | A letter was read from Councillor Fry, desiring to be excused on account of unavoidable absence from Kapunda.

The Kapunda Herald FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1868. ANOTHER CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
Clje I&apiuiUa FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 18G8. ANOTHER CRISIS. As was expected after the adverse vote of Wednesday, the Hart Ministry tendered their resignations to llis Excellency on Thursday morning. Mr. Hay was then sent for and com missioned to attempt tlie formation of a new Ministry. Whether lie will be successful or not, of course remains to be seen. Our own impres sion is, that uo fire men now iu Parliament will be able to maintain their seats as the House is at present constituted. At present there seems to be three distinct parties in the House-eaeli party hariug a pet scheme of their own ; and it is monstrous to suppose that with such a divided opinion any Ministry can bring in a scheme that will be approved of. Instead of an honest endeavour being made to advance the interests of tho colony by each member giving the country the benefit of his experience, the only desire seems to be to frustrate the efforts of tlie Government. Really such child's play is enough to make o...
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. Mr. Reynolds presented a petition praying that a Bill might be passed to incorporate tlie Pro vincial Gas Company. The Commissioner of Crown Lands stated that there were abont twenty-seven square miles of waste lands at the Barossa gold-fields. The Cliief Secretary at great length stated the ministerial policy on the Northern Territory question, and the Waste Lands. On the former question t-lie policy of the Government appears to be to dispatch Mr. G-oyder at once to survey the land, which lie believed would be ready to let in twelve months. On the land question the Government propose to retain the present auction system; but to license tlie brokers or agents, and to allow no unlicensed persons to bid except on their own account. All lands that have passed tlie hammer they would allow to Le selected at a rental of 2/ per aero, in blocks not exceeding 640 acres, subject to right of purchase at £1 per acre. A lengthy debate ensued, during which Mr. Hay gave notice t...
MIKING "RIGS." [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
MIKING "RIGS." In a country that, like our own, is so mucli interested in the development of mineral re sources, it is of tlie utmost importance tliat the most serupulous faith sliould be kept with, those capitalists who, whilst risking their money in a pursuit whereby they hope to cnrich themselves, are at the sauie time advancing materially the interests of the province at large. Mining is essentially a speculative venture; for, as almost every South Australian knows, indications which according to competent autho rities could only be found in the neigbourhood of rich deposits have been made the means of literally sulking considerable capital without any thing more profitable than indications being discovered. We know that the laud is rich in mineral wealth; and hence when indications are discovered the hope that the venture may open up a Burra or a Moonta in embryo induces a consider able anxiety to obtain shares. Iu some instances the " indications" disappear as soon as the orig...
PARLIAMENTARY. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
PARLIAMENTARY. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The House met pursuant to adjournment. The Attorney-General in reply to questions said the area of unsold land at tlie newly discovered goldfields, Barossa, was about thirty-seven square miles, and that lie believed it had all been with I drawn from sale. I The Attorney-General on the motion that the House adjourn, explained at great length the policy of the new Government on the laud question and Northern Territory. Several mem bers expressed their surprise and regret that the policy was not more liberal. The further con sideration of the Northern Territory Bill was made an order of the day for Thursday, to which day the Council adjourned. On Thursday, the Attorney-General stated that in consequence of the adverse vote of the Assembly on the previous day, the Government had tendered their resignations, and that Mr. t Hay had been sent for. Council then adjourned till Tuesday next.
CORPORATION BYE-LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
COB PORATION BYE-LAWS. We arc well aware that in passing certain bye laws for the government of this municipality the Council for the time being had 110 wish for them to be in any way oppressive, nor lias it been the desire of succeeding Councils to render them so. In some instances ol' course they had to press heavily on individuals where the welfare of the many was at stake, as in the case of the bye-laws pro hibiting slaughtering of great cattle within the Corporate bounds and providing strict regulations with respect to the slaughter of small cattle. But where the well-beiug of the majority was not imperilled by the action of any of the burgesses, non-intervention has been the policy of the Council; and in some instances, where there was peril-as for example, iu the latitude which was allowed with respect to driving in cattle witliin tlio proluhifpd limirenn tllC monthly sale day, &c. Nevertheless, there are included amongst the bye-laws some which undoubtedly if strictl...
CLARE. October 7, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
CLARE. [From our own Correspondent.] October 7,1868. I The weather just now is very changeable, one day hot and the next wet and cold. The crops continue to improve. AVc are shortly, I believe to have another machinist up here; I think there is plenty of room. On Saturday and Monday last, we had a great treat here in the seeing of the Nathan Juvenile | Troupe, which is really excellent, and the at tendance was good. I Last night the Rev. Mr. Woods gave a lecture j in the Town Hall, the room, I hear, being | crowded. I A cricket club, called the Union Cricket Club, is now formed here, and they have arranged to meet for practice two mornings and two evenings during the week. I hope such will be carried out, as we shall then be able to boast of a veiy good club.
BAROSSA GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
BAROSSA GOLD-FIELDS. " It never rains but it pours" is an old adage which bids fair to be exemplified in gold mining just now. It is but a short time since that we were startled by the news that gold had been found at Jupiter, and aiow the rush seems to be to Lyudoch. By the former discovery the Southerners had the beet of it, but now the Northerners have the advantage. Dame Fortune for once appears equally to have shared het favours. This new El Dorado is situated in the Hun dred of Barossa, about seven miles from G-awler, about five miles from Lyndoch, and. is in what is called the Cockatoo Valley Creek-1^eing distaut nearly twenty-five miles from Kapunda, and is situated on Crown lands. It has been known for years that gold existed in the locality, although it could not then be found in payable quantities. On Monday morning, however, the Register gave the following news :-" On Saturday morning, October 3, the Hon. Commissioner of Crown Lands (Mr. Townsend) received the following ...
