LETTER FROM QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 April 1878
LETTER -FROM QUEENSLAND. We have received the following letter from, our old townsman, Captain Israel Bennet:— The great depression which mining has experienced in this colony for a considerable time past, on account of the low price of copper, must be my excuse for not writing for several months. There has been nothing in mining of an encouraging nature to write about, and I do not care to be always writing bad news. On account of the continued low price of copper both the Peak Downs and Mount Perry mines have been compelled to succumb. The old companies in each case have been wound up, and the properties sold, and the success of the present holders must depend upou an advance (and a very con siderable one too) in the price of copper; in fact I fear that unless a favourable change takes place in the market that many of our colonial copper mines are doomed. The great chemical .facilities which now exist at home for dealing with low per centage ores will be found more than we shall b...

NEW CALEDONIA. Via New Zealand, April 5. Five liuiidred Preneli Communists have arrived to work the copper mines under a contract for 20 years. They are to pay a royalty of 10 sentimes each daily.

That was a happy point made tlie other night at a civic feast, sajs Mat/fair, by a naturalised German. In responding to a toast, he said:—" I am the best Englishman perhaps of any of you, bscause you -were all born English, and could not help it, whereas I became an Englishman from choice."

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 8, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 April 1878
OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 8, 1878. The promised address of the new candidate for Legislative honors (Rev. S. Green) to the electors of Port Adelaide was by no means a disappointment. Mr. Green's fame as a lec turer is well known, and seldom has he de livered a lecture affording a better evening's entertainment than he gaYe the Port people on Friday evening. The Town Hall tliere was crowded,'the number present being estimated at from 700* to BOO. Several" ministers of various denominations were on the platform —the Rev. Professor Davidson, H. M. Pollitt, Jas. Haslam, T. Field, M.A., Morgan Lloyd, and T. W. Bamber. Mr. Green's speech, which occupies four columns of the papers, dealt with the subject of clerical members of Parliament in an able and enthusiastic man ner. He quoted precedents—the case of the Rev. John Home Tooke in the early part of the century who was elected to the House of Commons, and was not allowed to take his seat, the case of ...

The kapunda herald. TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 1878. THE RESIGNATION OF LORD GARNARVON. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 April 1878
Cfje Staputttailtrafii, TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 1878. THE RESIGNATION OF LORD CAUNABYON. Amongst other important matters of winch the mail brings us fuller intelli gence than that which had reached us by telegram is the resignation! of Lord Carnarvon, who for the last four years lias held the responsible post of Secre tary of State for the Colonies. When, that gentleman took this Secretaryship in 1874, he was not altogether new to the work, having held the same posi tion in the Derby Ministry in 1866-7", and, moreover, in 1857-9, he was Under-Secretary in the same depart ment, so that altogether his official connection with the Colonial Depart ment has extended over a period of seven years. Throughout, Lord Car narvon has brought great ability and intelligence to bear on his department, and has also been extremely courteous, so that it is not too much to say he has won for himself the highest place in the regard of the different colonial dependencies of the British Empire, as well as the ...

CORONER'S INQUEST. FATAL ACCIDENT. An inquest was held on Sunday, April 7, at Bagot's Gap, by Mr. James Elliott, J.P., and a jury of thirteen (of whom Mr. E. Gamlen was elected foreman), on the body of Sydney James Laintoll, aged about ten years, who had been killed on the previous day by the upsetting of a spring cart. The jury having been sworn and viewed the body, the following evidence was taken. Jane Laintoll deposed that deceased was &nbsp; her brother, who was about ten years old. Last saw him alive shortly before noon on the previous day, when he left in a spring cart to take the men's dinner to a distance of about two miles. He was in the habit of doing this.

OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
OLD AGE. Is old age desirable? is one of the vexed questions which will never be answered until mankind has learned a nicer discrimination in the use of words. That life in itself is precious admits of no dispute; every sane person feels it in each pulse of his being. Infancy, child hood, manhood, and womanhood, despite the various trials peculiar to each, are never supposed to be undesirable states ; we tread in them gladly, and rcjoice that we are alive. As old age is but one part of this life which we all prize, it would seem unnatural that any should shrink from it, nor would this ever be the case were it not associated in the minds of so many with infirmities, weakness, decay, and loss of regard. The truth is that with all our civilisation, with all our pro gress in education and science, with all our improved appliances for rendering life full and rich, we have yet to learn how to secure the value and happiness that rightfully belong to a ripe old age. Montaigne said of one of...
VICTOR EMMANUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
VICTOR EMMANUEL. The following anecdotes of Victor Emmanuel are attributed to an exiled prince:—When still only Prince Royal, Victor Emmanuel, accompanied by a young aide-de-camp, whose features closely resembled those of King Charles Albert, and who, in fact, had the best reasons to resemble him, paid a visit to Queen Victoria. "The Queen said to the Prince Royal of Savoy, " I have never seen your father, the king; will you describe him to me ?" Victor Emmanuel, with military candour, turned to his aide-de-camp, and said, " Tour majesty, here is his living por trait ; this is his son." His.. august interlocutor immediately changed the subject. The second anecdote dates back only a few years. The King of Italy was in private audience with one of the dispossessed princes of the House of Tuscany, and during the flow of familiar conversation said, " Mj dear friend, I can easily under stand jour dissatisfaction ; but kindly consider that from my position, brought about by circumstances ...
MATRIMONY IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
MATBIMONT IN RUSSIA. [Russian marriages are generally ar ranged through priests. A well-bred bridegroom must present a gift to a monastery and another to his parish church ; the bride, through her friends, is expected to clothe some statue of a virgin with a gown of silver brocade, enriched with more or less jewels, according to the piety of the donor ; and in some parts of southern Russia she adds a gift of two white doves to the Pope, which looks rather like a rclic of the worship of Venus. The consent of parents is necessary for a marriage until the age of thirty-six in the case of men, twenty-five in that of women; but young people are at liberty to appeal to the civil authorities if con sent be arbitrarily witheld. In this event the parents are called upon to show reason for their refusal. The reason must not be mercenary, unless one of the young people be heir to a landed estate; then the question is re ferred to the marshal, of the nobility in the district, whose decisions ar...
SELECTED POETRY. THE WORN-OUT FOUNT OF TYPE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
SELECTED POETBY. THE WORN-OUT FOUUT OP TYPE. I'm sitting at my desk, Tom, Before me on the floor There lies a worn-out fount of type, Full twenty thousand score ; And many months have passed, Tom, Since they were bright and new, And many are the tales they're told— The false, the strange, the true. What tales of horror they hare told, Of tempest and of wreck ; Of murder in the midnight hour, Of war full many a " speck!" Of ships that, lost away at sea, Went down before the blast; Of stifled cries of agony, As life's last moments passed. * * * * * # Of flood, and fire, and accident, Those worn-out types have told; And how the pestilence has swept The youthful and the old. Of marriages, of births, and deaths; Of things to please and vex ub ; Of one man's jumping overboard, Another gone to Texas. They're told us how sweet summer days Have faded from our view; How autumn's chilling winds have swept The leaf-crowned forest through; How winter's snow has come and gone— Dark reign of storm...
