Surveyor reported that M'Carthv's contract at Cormack's Creek was progressing, and that he had made one or two slight alterations in the specification, which the contractor would carry out without- extra pay ment.

SADDLE WottTH. [From our own Correspondent.^ October 8, 1868. The monthly meeting of the Baud of Hope was held on Tuesday evening. There was a good attendance, and the meeting throughout was in teresting. The Secretary having previously of fered a prize for the best recitation, it was gained by Miss S. A. Harrold, who gave the " Little Heroine'' in a most excellent manner. Mr. C. Harrold has offered a valuable prize, to be com peted for next month. The crops are looking healthy, and are growing nicely after the splendid showers that we have been blessed with. I hear that Mr. Brinkwortli has lost a valuable horse, that was injured by being upset with a load of wood at a bad crossing iu the township. The District Council is active in improving bad places.

FIJVJMISS POINf. [From a Correspondent.! October 5, 1868. On Thursday last a temperance meeting was j held in the Wesleyan Chapel at this place-about j 100 persons being present. The chair was taken J by Mr. Chas. Farrow (District Chairman), who opened the meeting fay giving out a hymn, after which. Mr. Flavel engaged in prayer. The Chairman then addressed the meeting on the tem perance movement; and Mx. II. Inglis read a 'piece from a temperance work. Mr. E. Alcock, D.S., next addressed the meeting in a very ? forcible manner, and showed from several facte | which he related that there is no safety except in total abstinence. He urged upon all the neces sity of signing the pledge and forming a society to stop the evils from speading that arises from the abuse of intoxicating drinks. With a closing address and invitation from the Chairman, the meeting terminated by singing the doxology and benediction. The friends of temperance then retired to Mr. Gray's schoolroom, for the pur pose...

CORRESPONDENCE. MAIN LINE FROM KAPUNDA TO TRURO. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. MAIS LIXE FROM KAPUNDA TO TRURO. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-The ford at Allen's Creek on the main line from Kapunda to Truro lifts been in a very dangerous state ever since it was built, owing to the absence of fencing on the lower side. If a horse attached to any vehicle was to sliy towards that side, there is nothing to prevent its going over and smashing enough to pay for the fencing, without reckoning anything for broken necks, legs, &c The culvert made at the same time is worse, for it is daugerous at both sides of the road. I can see no reason why the fencing should not be included in the contract with the making; it would be done for less than half what it will cost afterwards, unless it is let by tender. The grubbing the trees and stumps on the saim* line could be done by tender for half what it will cost by day work. If the grubbing and fencing were let together, the same timber grow ing 011 the road could be used for the fencing; but if that line is not the...
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, October 8, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. ("From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, October 8, 1868. Are you mucli given to reading Shakspeare up North ? You may remember Portia's three caskets from which her foreign lovers had to clioose-the golden one with its motto, " Who chooseth me shall gain what many men desire the silver one, " Who chooseth me shall get as much as he desires and the base lead, " Who chooseth me must give and hazard all he hath." We have a Portia just now in the House of Assembly, known by the vulgar modern name of bond fide settler. She has already settled one Government-Prince of Morocco, Mr. Reynolds. A second is now fumbling with the caskets Prince of Arragon, Captain Hart-and has to all appearances opened the wrong one. On Tuesday afternoon Ulyses turned the key on the silver box-very cautiously, as his manner is, and with sly glauces from under his eyebrows, as if he would fain see under the lid before he opened it. But with all his caution he has committed him self ; Portia...
THE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
THE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. c:-_ Ti- - i . ,1 t Sir-It appears evident the Parliament doos not know what to do about an amended Land Act. There must be a great number of land agents in the parliament, or payments for the land by instalments would not set their bristles on end so quickly; but their interests are at stake. The same profit the agents now get if divided between the Government and the farmer, would be a great benefit to the Colony at large, and to the farmer individually, and if the act cannot be amended to be a benefit, it will be better to let it remain as it is. Selection is free enough now. Deferred paymcuts is the only thitg to help us. Occupation will not succeed. If my neighbour lias money to buy a square mile of land, and lie cannot get it in South Australia, lie will go some where else and spend liis money. The take-all is a very bad disease, but it ouly fcikes what we put on the land. The laud agent- is frequently worse, lie takes all we put on the land, and a...

ffolloiwys PUU.-To Purify the Blood.-With this medicine the discovery of 11 groat principle of guidance in treating the diseased body dawned upon mankind-the neces sity of purifying the blood, "the life of the flesh." This rational treatment gradually superseded the barbarous bleedings, destructive emetics, and un dermining mercurial preparations, which had en toiled the profession and public for centuries. Purification of fluids and solids is the noble pur pose ifolloway's medicine was designed to effect, and wonderfully has it accomplished its end-a truth, at the present daj', universally admitted and acted upon. In loss of appetite, giddiness, partial failure of memory, billious attacks, and. habitual eostivenesa, Ifolloway's Pills exert the mo-it salutary powers in invigorating any orgau which is failing through weakness.-Add. PASTE HOARD ROOFING.-A few days ago, re ports the Scir.iilijif Reniew, the .Emperor of tho French inspected a new kind of puteboard roofing, destined to r...
PERSECUTION IN KAPUNDA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 9 October 1868
PERSECUTION DT KAPUXDA. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-W ill you kindly insert the following facts. A rear OP two ago, I received from the Corpora tion Valuator a notice of the proposed assessment of part of my property, which was so palpably in correct that I gave written notice at the Town Clerk*? office of my intention to appeal against it. It could be seen from the Yaulator's ^Notice that there was a great blunder, as a piece of ground, the only erection on which was a fire furnace, was described as "Yard with Workshops and Offices," and the property in question assessed at double the amount of the previous year. At the time of appeal at the Local Court, I attended to make my defence, but was told that I was too late, as another appeal in addition to my written notice ought to have been made to the Corporation; judgment therefore went against me. All the Councillors with whom I spoke on the subject expressed their decided feelings on the justice of my cause, and the hardship of making me pa...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1868. THE MEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
\Wfft 3&aptmXra Herald, FRIDAY, OCTOBER l4,1868. THE MEW MINISTRY. ~ On Tuesday after ^ihe meeting of Parliament a Crazette Extraordinary -was issued, the an nouncements in which, has certainly taken the public bj surprise, for as the result of the Ministerial crises through which we hare passed on the land question, it gives us back just exactly the old quintette without any variation, viz.: Chief Secretary ... ... ... Mr. Ayers 1 Treasurer ... Mr. &eynol3s Attorney-General ... ... ... Mr. Andrews Commissioner of Public Works ... Mr. Santo ; Commissioner of Crown. Lands ... Mr. jL.-Glydp. The new Ministry -will certainly be placed -in >a curious position. They vent out on the land question, and they return to office on the land question. Their view, or ra£her conglomeration of views, as presented by them on the occasion of their defeat, was decidedly unsatisfactory. Have they by their short immersion in the troubled waters of the Opposition washed away the ob jec...
DISRAELI'S PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
DISRAELI'S PERSONALITIES. The best bits of the speech were the personalities. Lord Cranbome's attack upon the Premier had been in one style, and now the reply of Mr. Disraeli was in another. The weapon of the one was vituperation, and of the other sarcasm. It was the club of Orson against the rapier of Valentine. In a highly-polished audience, satire will always be a more ef fective iustrument than railing or invective, and the Premier's defence was therefore more to the taste of the House than the onslaught of his late colleague. Lord Cranbome's castigation of Mr. Disraeli! would be called, in the language of the P.R.? a piece of heavy "slogging" punish ment-a getting of his man's head " into chancery," and "pegging away" until the sympathies of the bystanders are excited in bis favour, and they feel a desire to " cut the ropes." On Friday, when it was the Premier's tarn, he appeared to be hitting with the gloves on, and fencing with the foil. It has been observed more than once th...
THE GOLD DISCOVERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
THE GOLD DISCOVERIES. At last the long-cherished hope of South Australia has been realized in the dis covery of what at present are certainly payable gold-fields. How long they may continue so is a problem which time alone will solve. It is no use denying the feet that it has long been a sore point with South Australians that this alone of the Australasian Colonies, though highly favoured in other respects, should be a non-gold-producing province; and al- j though firmly believing that there lare other | minerals the presence of which do quite much to promote the lasting welfare of the colony as gold itself, still we cannot deny that we too are pleased that it should have been thus practically demonstrated-? despite the unqualified negative of Mr. Hargreaves-that to our national wealth in wool, wheat, wine, copper, &c., may now be added the item of gold. It is a fact-strange, but, nevertheless, true-and one which speaks of an over ruling Providence, that just at the time whe...
CHOOSING A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
CHOOSING A WIFE. It is not without some degree of cynical wisdom that marrying men-men determined to many at any risk-endeavour to shirk one hazard at least by selecting a -woman of a -weak and pliable nature. They trust to mould what she has of mind to their own, and hope to find her turn out satisfactorily after careful and cautious training. The experiment often succeeds, and the result is a mild gooseberry-wine felicity, which suits the tastes and tempers of those who care to indulge in it. Such women can. be ? thoroughly do mesticated, become conscientious mothers, and retain for an indefinite period a sense of pleasure at nursing a new baby. Their husbands escape storms of temper or gusts and squalls of feeling, and seeurefor themselves a companionship which, if not very elevating, is at least tolerable, even when the first bloom of it has worn off. Indeed, it may be, that in the present condition of the female mind, this plan is the safest that a bachelor can follow. A marria...
