THE GREAT WHEAT CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
THE GREAT WHEAT CROP. We are now in a position to judge of the wheat crop, and. here and abroad it may be fairly re presented as unprecedented in bulk and in fineness of quality. Whatever may have failed, wheat has filled and ripened grandly, and been carried in superb condition. Mark Lane has never had such English wheat offered to it; large in berry to the size of California, bright in colour to the highest standard of white winter growth Canadian, hard in substance to an approximation to the chalk-pit flints of Kent and Hampshire. While the shoots were yet short, and the ears unformed, we ventured to direct attention to-those discoveries in electricity that inspire confidence in vegetation in the driest weather, and it is satisfactory to reflect that, 60 far, experience confirms theory. For it is not to be overlooked that the England of well-drained meadows, broad upland tillage of subsoil depth, covered ditches, and town and country 6ewage, is hardly to be identified with the En...

THE IRONWORKERS' EL DORADO(?) [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
THE IRONWORKERS' EL DOBADO (?) . Xu certain quarters we have heard much of the advantages which other countries, and especially the United States, present over f^reat Britain as a' market to which. our ironworkers can take their labour. There are persons who never tire of telling us that by the course the masters of fhia country pursue they are driving hence their best hands, and that soon 'we shall be left to pursue our industry here, assisted only by the least ekilful of handicraftsmen. 33ie men have believed much that they have been told, and there has hardly ever been a strike without certain of them going out-not, however, to prove the truth, but, on the contrary, to satisfy themselves of the delusiveness of the hopes which they were encouraged to cherish. During the " great- strike," as it was termed, the men were sent away from, about Brierley Hill, some to the United States and some to New Zealand. We believe that we are correct in stating that none remained out but certain ...

THE EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
THE EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTH AMERICA. The earthquake at Callao on the 13th of August produced disasters of so appalling a nature as to beggar description^ After the sailing of the steamer on the 14th, and while the inhabitants were yet in the wildest consternation, a terrible conflagration broke out, which was not subdued' until a large number of houses were destroyed. At Arica the principal part of the town was destroyed, and numbers of persons who could not be got out of the houses were crushed- to death, Ihe loss of life was very great. The earth opened in many places, and shocks were' con tinually repeated for eighteen hours. The town is completely in ruins. The following vessels were in the harbourThe U.S.S. Wateree and Eredonia, barque Chaiiarcillo, American ship Kobs Biviera, French ship Eduardo, and the Peruvian corrette America. The Wateree is high and dry a quarter of a mile inland.

WOOL-GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
WOOL-GATHERING. A correspondent sends us the following, which no doubt will be interesting to the uninitiated: " Although I do not doubt but that there are few persons in the neighbourhood of Kapunda who hare not witnessed the operation of sheep shearing, still to those few it may not be un interesting for them to read an attempted description of the ififcerior of a woolshed during the sheepfarmer's harvest. " Although to all appearances, especially to the novice, the wort seems to be comparatively easy, the shearer will. at once deny such an assertion; and I agree with him in thinking that, from the constrained position of the body and constant exercise, sheep-Shearing is as laborious a work as it is possible for a person to be engaged in. " The! shed of which I will endeavour to give a description employs about seventy persons, of whom forty-five are shearers-the remainder being required to assist in wool-picking, pressing, branding, &c. "After catching a sheep the operato...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE CREEK RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
CORRESPONDENCE. THE GREEK RESERVE. TO THIL EJ>ITOE. Sir-Can you tell me when the Corporation intend to fence intheGreek TbandReserve. There. Ixaxe already been some accidents there, and the probability is that if it is much longer left in its unprotected state we shall hear o£ others occurring. Seeing that the Government voted the amount requisite for completing the work, there should be no reason for such a delay in finishing it. . I am Sir, &c., RATEPAYER. [There is some plan under consideration by the Government as to how far the dams .in the reserve may be rendered available for the supply of water to the locomotives at the Kapunda Station. Should .these plans be approved, a con siderable amonnt of money would be expended by the Government in enlarging and deepening the dams ; and until this question is settled one way or another it would be useless for the Corporation to erect fencing, though we certainly agree that the sooner tins can be done the better it will bo f...

CLARE. October 14, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 16 October 1868
CLARE. [From our own Correspondent.] October 14, 1868. I The gold fever has evidently reached us, as some are daily leaving for the scene of action, and I am sure those who do go have the good wishes of those who are left behind. The weather has been very close again, hut it is now raining, and the change is very re freshing. I am sorry to have to report the appearance of red rust; hut it is only in self-sown crops. It is to be hoped it will go no further. There was not much interest shown at the late District Council election, Mr. T. Ninnes being the successful candidate. Our town is steadily improving in appearance. There are at the present time three new buildings going up, and a store being improved and carried out to its proper boundary.

Mr. Bright moved as an amendment, for the convenience of country members, that the House adjourn until Tuesday next. . If they met on Thurs...

THE MARQUIS OF BUTE AND THE CARDIFF ELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 23 October 1868
THE MARQUIS OF BUTE AND THE CARDIFF ELECTOBS. Something must be done with the peers. They require looking after. They are showing signs of discontent with the condition in life in which Providence has placed them, and aspire to be commoners; or rather they desire to unite the franchises1 of coininoners with the privileges of peers. -The electioneering proceedings of Lord Hardwicke in Cambridgeshire were the subject of not altogether -favourable remark in the House of Commons early in the session. The still more extraordinary conduct of the Duke of Portland has been: commented upon in these columns; and, plunging since into a controversy ?with a country newspaper, the duke has advanced the most unconstitutional propositions in English quite as unconstitutional To these two peers enter, as stage directors say, the Marquis of Bute. This young noble many who is a minor, is now pursuing his studies in Christ Church, Oxford, and, we trust, making progress in .them satisfactory to his past...
