THE HAYMARKET REVELS. HORRIBLE, BUT TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
THE HAYMARKET BEVELS. HORRIBLE, BUT TRUE. It is high, time that steps were taken to pufc an end to the infamous carnival which, at each recurring midnight, reigns in the Hay^ market and its neighborhood. Some years ago Mr. Knox won a name for himself by the promptitude and rigor he- displayed in enforcing a wholesome police regulation against the loose women who turned a -whole ' locality into a pandemonium. The inflexible severity of the magistrate succeeded, and at the time of his death the Haymarket and the adjoining sections of Piccadilly and Began t sfcreet were reduced to something lite the order reigning in other leading thoroughfares of the metropolis. Past men and women did, indeed, congregate in the neighborhood, but their behavior, if not decorous, was less of a public scandal and an outrage on decency than previously. Their worst vagaries were repressed, and the terrors of fine and impri sonment put a decided check on the coarse and importunate solicitations of abandoned...
CORRESPONDENCE. KAPUNDA MAILS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
COBRESPONBENCE. KAPUNDA MAILS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—After -waiting for coi-respondence from Adelaide by the train which arrives here at 10 o'clock a.m., I was anxious to return to Adelaide by the 10.20 a.m. train, but firstly I wanted to know if there were any letters for me. The postman, whose duty it is to get the mail bags when the train arrives, stays until the train leaves again instead of going at once to the Post-Office and sorting the letters, so as to allow any person to re turn by the early train who has business to attend to. I must say that the postal authorities are very quick in delivering the letters, but the detention is eaus'ed at the railway station. I hope some one who'has experienced the same as I have will write more about it, for I really think it is too bad on the postman's part to stay when he knows what business letters claim. I in no way wish to blame the young man, be cause I think he has orders to look to the late letters; but surely one can take the letter...

KILKERRAN. [From our own Correspondent.] January 4, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
E2LKERRAN. fFrom our own Correspondent.] January 4, 1879 On New Year's Day a public tea meeting took place at the farm of Messrs. Gordon and Phillips" iii' connection with the ' Congrega tional Churcli of this place, but owing to the excessive heat in the afternoon the attendance was not nearly as large as was expected. The people about the town did not much care driving out in the heat and dust, whilst fanners took advantage of securing such a fine reaping day. The tea was held in a large booth erected expressly for the purpose. The trays were provided by Mesdames Moody, Gordon, Pillips, Jackson, and the display of eatables was a credit to the ladies. In the evening a meeting took place, presided over by the Bev. J. J. Xuhn, when a Buitable address and the proceeds of the tea were handed to the pastor, the Her. R. W. Bayley, as a new year's gift. The fanners are still busy pushing ahead with their reaping. Many of the crops to the disappointment of the owners are proving almost a c...
The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1879. THE UNCERTAINTY OF FARMING OPERATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
Wijt Istapuirtra TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1879. THE UNCERTAINTY OF FARM ING OPERATIONS. Within the last few days informa tion has reached us from portions of our own district, as well as from other parts of the colony, leading to the belief that the average yield will not be anything like so good as had been anticipated. Experience in judging the probable yields of paddocks of wheat has this year gone for nothing. Crops which looked exceedingly well to the eye have turned out miserably poor, whilst others which appeared likely to give an inferior yield have turned out far better than was ex pected. And these various results ap pear to have accrued, as far as can be seen, without rhyme or reason. One paddock has yielded a good crop ; the next, with precisely similar land, and equally well tilled, has not been worth reaping. And in our o wn district we know of several cases in which really energetic and liberal farmers —liberal, that is in the mode of dealing with their land—have had to s...

MELBOURNE. pFroni our own CorreBpondent-3 January 8, 1879. You will have been wondering what lias become of your erratic " own correspondent" in this part of the world. Do not alarm your self, however. I am worth a good many j dead men yet. But if you recollect I warned you that I was going to take it easy for a bit. j Don't imagine that you are going to be the | recipient of a long letter even now, for this i will be only a kind of preliminary canter just 1 to see how the harness fits.

Judging from jthe reports I notice in your Adelaide papers, I should think the New Year will be a fairly prosperous one for you.

REUTER'S TELEGRAMS BOMBAY, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
REUTEH'S TELEGRAMS BOMBAY, January 7. Mr. Forster, speaking at Bradford, severely attacked tbe foreign policy of the Govern ment, and hoped that tlie results of the next elections would be a condemnation of an j Imperialistic policy which might lead the J whole world into war. i LONDON, January 8. j The depressed state of trade throughout . the country is causing a general movement for the reduction of wages.

GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] January 9, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
&AWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] January 9, 1879* The Linda Illusion was not very well patronised. We had the U.S. Minstrels here two nights. They did not receive the sup port they deserved, the ball being scarcely half filled each evening, notwithstanding the splendid programme presented. Snbscription-lists in aid of Captain Tres trail, who was such a he-ivy loser by the late fire, have been opened, and over £100 have been collected. .Although sufficient may be gathered to help liim considerably, it will be impossible to get all that he lost. He was the owner of a number of curiosities of various kinds which he had been years collect ing, besides the greater part of the instru ments belonging to a brass band, of which that gentleman and his sons were members. The origin of the fire is, as is usual with bush fires, unknown.

The Station-master at Powell's Creek reports the arrival of Messrs. Faience, Briggs, and Hedley, the Queensland explorers. Sir James McCulloch arrived from Mel bourne to-day. Melbourne telegrams report the accounts about the Kellys as conflicting. They stuck up Younghusband's station on Friday for provisions, the police being unaware. Four were tracked to Hay, but were found to be only shearers. Favourable reports have been received respecting the Watts River as supplemen tary to the Yan Yan water supply.

HAMILTON. [From our own Correspondent.] January 13, 1878. The New Year has commenced here with several unusual events. On New Year's Day a fire occurred at the rear of Mi\ G-. S. Tur ner's store, burning the pigstye and pig, and but for the prompt assistance of _ the neigh bours the haystack would have gone also. The only cause that can be suggested for its origin is that a few days previously the packing out of some cases was thrown in for bedding, and it is thought some loose matches must have been amongst it. On the 5th another fire broke out, burning sheds and pigstye j no other damage was done. At about a quarter past 5 yesterday (Sun day) evening, a very severe shock of an earth quake was felt here; it lasted from three to five seconds, and seemed to go North-East. It resembled the noise of a train and was felt for several miles round. The Jharvest is just about finished. The average will not be so much as was expected a short time ago, but still it is not worse than other pla...
OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, January 11, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 January 1879
OTTB CITY LETTER. £From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, January 11, 1879. People in business are accustomed to hear all sorts of excuses made by those who are unable or unwilling to meet their liabilities In the " Bed Rust year" the excuse was the failure of the crops; at the time of the Franco-Prussian War, that even furnished an excuse to some ingenious debtors ; and at the present time the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank is a prolific source of excuses for any want of punctuality in payment. I j applied to a man the other day for a small amount, and he at once replied " Oh 1 its no use your coming to me now, tbis City of Glasgow Bank going—I said " What I are you a loser?" " Well," he said, " not directly, but it has made money awfully tight, and business is very dulL" This is all very well for a yarn, but I really believe that the failure of that Bauk has, like a huge mass of rock tumbled into a lake, disturbed its wares to ' tlie farthest shores. I believe it has to some ...
