OLD NORTH ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 1 October 1864
(OLD IjTOEtTH ROA$, ^Considerable interest, amounting al most to consternation, was felt yesterday in Gawler, and amongst toe Nortneniiset tlers, at the appearance in the leading column of the Advertiser, of the proposed appropriation of portions of the road grants by the Central Road Board, in which no mention was made of the Gawler and Gilbert line. It may be well, there fore, to point out that the action of the Boai$ is confined to such lines only as «u* already on the schedule, and that the re storation of the Old I^orth Ba*d rests with Parliament, whose duty relative to this line is not likely to be long delayed, after the explicit declaration of the- Chief Secretary, that the road is to be made.

SHE-OAK LOG. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 1 October 1864
SHE-OAK LOG: An interesting Lecture was delivered on the 16th Sept., on Phrenology, by Mr. Walter Pattison, in aid of the School Funds. Great amusement was caused during the evening by the ridiculous antics of a Gawler tonian, wl o evidently got on the spree and mi? conducted himself accordingly. I -won't mention the name of tbe individual, but strongly reeom xnecd him to enrol himself forthwith in the inks of the Gawler Humbug Society, where I hope he will speedily rise to eminence as a Capital monkey. The after effects of the lecture were very extraordinary on the worthy denizens of Shea Oak I-ng, nearly all have been bitten by « Phrenological mania.' For several days before the delivery of the lecture every one was ex- ' amining every one's head for bumps just as the monkeys in tbe tropics do the beads of each otbe.r/br fleas. The bump of Philoprogenitive- ? ness seems to be pretty 'well looked *fter and cultivated' here. This is as it should be, as matrimony will be thereby prom...
