MOONTA. [From our own Correspondent.] March 7, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
MOONTA. [From our own Correspondent.] March 7. 1878. This district was visited with, a very heavy thunderstorm on Monday night- The rain c ime down in torrents. It commenced about 12 o'clock, and lasted till about 3 in the morning. It was unusually heavy, and the water came down the streets with great force, washing away |road metal and running into some of the storekeepers' cellars, and doing a lot of other damage. I hear one tradesman l03t about £50 worth of sugar through the water getting into his cellar, but the damage done is slight in comparison to the benefit conferred on the folks who were out of water, the scarcity of which commodity was getting very serious—numbers of farmers and others having to cart it long distances ; but now I am happy to say we are all pretty well sup plied.—The Government do not seem in a very great hurry to lengthen our jetty. At present it is almost useless, except for small craft. Only the other night the steamer Kangaroo went aground within a few...
CITY CORRESPONDEDCE. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, March 11. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 March 1878
CITY CORRESPONDEDCE. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide. March 11. It is a matter for intense, if not irremediable, grief that the colony is likely aoon to be de prived of the eminent services of Mr. M. H. Madge. Starting public life with a small amount of leaven, he has risen—well, like his own good bread, and under the scorching heat of the oven of criticism he has been thoroughly done brown. He is now what one may call a well-baked public man. It has been Mr. Madge's good fortune to live in the region, and to breathe the atmosphere of great men, and this has had a palpable influence upon his career. Some streets like some men are born to greatness, or have greatness thrust upon them. In a little lane, off Sturt-street, Mr. Madge started in business, and laid the foun dstion both of his fame and fortune. In the same lane the present Chief Justice, one of our leading medical men, and one of the first buyers for colonial houses in London spent some years in the early part of the...

JIoTloway's Pills.—Important for the delicate.—It is difficult to determine which is the more trying to the human constitution— the damp, cold days of autumn and winter, or the keen, dry, easterly winds of spring. Throughout the seasons good health may be maintained by occasional doses of Hollo way's Pills, which purify the blood and act as whole some stimulants to the skin, stomach, liver, bowels, and kidneys. This celebrated medi cine needs but a fair trial to convince the ail ing and desponding that it will restore and cheer them without danger, pain, or inconve nience. No family should be without a sup ply of Holloway's Pills and Ointment, as by a timely recourse to them the first erring func tions may be reclaimed. Suffering may be spared, and life saved.—Advt.

A LEGISLATIVE JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878
A LEGISLATIVE JOKE. The late Robert Dale Owen was elected to the Indiana Legislature from Posey country in 1835, and in an article from his pen in the December Scribner he tells the following of his first term :— Like most of my colleagues who lived in remote portions of the State, I travelled on horseback to attend the legislature, part of the way along bridle paths, some times swimming creeks, or, if we were fortunate to find a canoe, depositing there in saddles and saddle-bags, and trailing our horses swimiuing behind. A trunk, for those who indulge in such a luxury, was sent on by a carrier. The legisla ture was composed chiefly of farmers, plain, honest gentlemen, with a few sharp witted lawyers and other professionals often taking prominent parts. Now and then I could not forbear a smile at the ignorance, especially in common facts in science, that sometimes peeped out. The hall in which we met being often irregularly heated by two large cast-iron stoves, my friend, Chris. Gra...
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, March 14. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878
CITY CORRESPONDENCE. JTrom our own Correspondent J Adelaide, March 14. At last the Mouse of Assembly has been dissolved, tlie writs are out, and Mr. Bou caut's address appears in this morning's papers. There has been a general feeling that there has been too much delay exhibited by the Government, and I notice that more than one country paper complains that the projection of the elections into the month of April will prevent a large number of persons from voting, since farmers in the various districts will be busy ploughing and sowing. The Ministry, it is alleged, could do nothing while Mr. Morgan was away, and he only re turned to the colony yesterday; but I fancy there is something behind the scenes which we shall hear of by-aad-bye. The elections are divided into two main batches—that is, the nominations are fixed for two separate days, hut the elections are divided into five different days. Your district falls iu the second batch, the nominations being April 1L, and the election...
EDUCATION AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878
EDUCATION AND CRIME. "We are frequently fa voted with lectures about the inability of secular education to prevent crime, and the inference is drawn that the evils would be corrected by send ing children to sectarian schools. The logical connection of these ideas is not very clear. If training in sectarian dog mas were sufficient to prevent injustice, there might be some solid basis for the argument But devout people have not been the most moral. The Sicilians, Nea politans and Spaniards are zealous church members, and strict in the performance of their ceremonial duties, and yet their countries are distinguished for the large proportion of grave crimes. Nearly every body was devout in the Middle Ages, and never was less regard paid to human rights. They who gathered to See Pro testants buried in Spain, or witches in New England, claimed to be the most religious people of their times, and imag ined they were rendering special service to God by their bloody pageants. The most cruel m...
MELBOURNE. March 9, 1878 [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878
MELBOURNE. Q IRVR As usual, I am all behind again, like Brown's cow's tail—it seems to be my natural fate. However there is a consolation even for the greatest sluggard that ever lived in the old proverb " Better late than never," and a .still stronger one in another, " Old wine is the best." The news I am about to dilate upon is no news at all, but there is an in finite variety in tlie maimer of telling things, and so perhaps, although my theme is old, your readers may interested. Of iourse I must touch upon political matters first. The great event is the xeceipt of advices from the Home Government relating to the present state of affairs, and advising TTis Excellency what course to pursue if asked to sign war rants for payments on the authority of the Assembly only. Of course the despatch to which this telegram is a reply was sent in anticipation of such an emergency arising, and if your readers have had the patience to follow me through my letters they will re member that the Gov...

SADDLEWORTH. L-fcrom our own Correspondent.] March 12, 1878. Amusements in this part are rather rare, but on the 4th of this month, the Georgia Minstrels gave one of their so-called first-rate concerts. Certainly if noise is very enter taining we had quite enough of that to suit any one; as regards the musical part of it, it was a failure, for with the exception of two voices the singing was very poor ; and as to their farces it was a farce of farces. There was a large attendance for Saddleworth. We were rather pleased to find that on the same night about half an inch of rain fell which was very much wanted here, as two thirds of the tanks were empty, but now all have got sufficient to carry them on for another fortnight when it is to be hoped that we may be blessed with a larger supply. There was a meeting held at the Council Booms on Friday evening last, to take into consideration the necessity of placing Saddle worth under sanitary law, and high time it was thought of doing somet...

MABBAJ8EL. [From our own Correspondent.] March 13, 1878. Several of our business men and farmers are leaving for the Northern Areas. Ophthalmia is very prevalent—scarcely a family but one or more are suffering from it. The attendance at our day-school has been very mucli affected by it for the past two months. Mr- James Johnston, Superintendent of the Springfield Sabbath-School, being about to leave the district, was presented "with a writing-desk and the following address (nicely written by Master Robert Heithersay) prior to his departure :—" To James John ston, Esq. Dear Sir—The teachers and scholars of the Springfield Sabbath-School cannot allow you to part from them without giving expression to the feelings of sincere respect and esteem which they have ever entertained towards you, and which have been justly merited by your amiable and gentle demeanour towards them.
