WESLEYAN SABBATH-SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
WESLEYAN SABBATH-SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. The services in connection with the anni versary of the Wesleyan Sunday-school were held on Sunday last, when the Rev. H. T. Burgess preached in the morning and evening, and the Rev. J. Sock in the afternoon. In consequence of the inclement state of the weather the evening anniversary collection was postponed until next Sunday. The public tea was held on Easter Monday in the Institute Sail, and was numerously attended, the tables being presided over by the ladies of the Church. In the evening the public meeting was held in the Church, Mr. D. Nock, the Superinten dent of the School, presiding. The atten dance was not so large as could have been wished, owing doubtless to the heavy rain. The Chairman said that although the rain had prevented many from attending, yet they all felt thankful for receiving it. He heartily welcomed amongst them their new minister, the Rev. Mr. Burgess, and Mrs. Burgess, There were some present that evening who could rem...
MAGISTRATES' COURT, KAPUNDA. SATURDAY, APRIL 20. [Before Messrs. D. Nock and J. Elliott, Justices.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
MAGISTRATES' COUBT, KAPUNDA. Saturday, Apbix 20. [Before Messrs. D. Nock and J. Elliott, Justices.] Michael Fogarty was charged on the infor mation of William Potter, Licensed Victualler, Eudunda, with stealing a bottle of whisky on the 18th inst. William Potter deposed that on the 18th prisoner came to his licensed house, had several nobblers of brandy for which he paid, and kept loitering about the place. Some thing that had happened previously caused him to be suspicious of prisoner, so whilst he ■was in the taproom witness'marked the bottles of grog in the bar, and also some of the coin in the till, and then went into the private parlour, from which he saw prisoner "enter the bar. Then sat down out of prisoner's sight. Heard a jingling of glass. Just afterwards some one else entered the bar, so witness went out, and prisoner had left. Noticed that the flap of the counter (which he had fastened) leading behind the bar was up, and that one bottle of whisky was missing. Looked for ...
THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS. March 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS. March 15. It may be hoped there will be no wavering | or uncertainty in regard to the bases on which Great Britain will enter the Congress, which it is now stated is likely to he held in Berlin, about the 28th inst. Not long ago Lord Derby stated that this was the question which was occupying the attention of the Govern ment, and firmness and pressure may both be necessary to obtain a satisfactory solution. Russia, no^ unnatu-ally perhaps from her own point of view, would submit as little as pos sible of the Treaty of Peace to the Powers: but it is the interest, and will be the duty of the latter to insist- as a sine qua non of delibe ration in congre.-s at all that the whole of the treaty shall be submitted, and that they shall have the assurance there is no other secret treaty, and no t^rms or conditions outside those stated in the document brought to their knowledge. Otherwise they might find after long and laborious discussion that their con clusions on m...
OUR LONDON LETTER. London, March 14, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
OUB LONDON LETTER. London, March 14,1878. "Things are again looking very entangled/' was the remark made to me yesterday after noon by a well-known M.P. There can be no i question of that. Our Government has made up its mind that it will not goto the Congress unless all tlie conditions of the Russo-Turkish Treaty are announced and discussed at tlie Congress. In this resolve Ministers will hav# tlie unanimous support, of tlie country, and will be equally supported in tlie demand that no subject shall be broached at the Congress which has not been previously mentioned. They do not wish to see a German-Dutch or Franco-Belgian arrangement suddenly sprung upon them, nor to find themselves placed in a position whence they could not retreat with out dishonour or war. Yet Prince Bismarck said, at his Parliamentary reception, on Saturday night, that "the demand of ^England that previous to the meeting of the Congress there should be prepared a platform of the subjects upon which it will deli...
RIVERTON. [From our own Correspondent.] April 15, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
EIVERTOlSr. [From our own Correspondent.] April 15, 1878. The farmers have commenced sowing, and are now anxiously looking out for some rain. I notice many of the farmers are using Sir. H. B. Hawke's sowing machine, some are using Messrs. Adamson Bros.% and several Messrs. A. & W. Dobbie's. I Mr. A Darby has lost a fine little boy, be tween 3 and 4 years old, from croup, he only having been ill a few hours. The Wesleyans have now become so power ful in this district that a new minister has been appointed for Biverton. He preached for the first time last night, and delivered a very eloquent sermon. Our old townsman Mr. Bollenhagen has lately left here, after having been a resident upwards of sixteen years. We have now an auctioneer and commission agent resident amongst us, one having recently started. His two first sales have been eminently successful. As a monthly market is much needed, it is to be hoped he will succeed.
OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 20, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
OUR CITY LETTER [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 20, 1878. All the agricultural districts have had a fair share of the rain, varying from about three-fourths of an inch to nearly an inch and three-quarters. In Adelaide we had over an inch and a half, and everything looks fresher for it. The rain fell gently and steadily, so that every drop would soak into the ground and not run off the surface to -waste, as too much of the former rain did. I am glad to see by the returns that your district participated in the precious down pour. It has occurred to me that the establish ment of farmers' clubs throughout the coun tiy would be a wise step, and if they were properly conducted ought to be productive of benefit. They would be the means of making suggestions which might lead to great results. After a long residence and considerable prac tical experience I am convinced that our system, or want of system, of fanning is susceptible of great improvement. Our climate, though fickle...
EASTER HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
EASTER HOLIDAYS. Easter tide this year has been ushered in "midst doubts and fears." Holiday-makers dreaded tlie ioneertainty of that much abused officer, the Cleric of tlxe weather, who has such a lot to answer for, lest, perchance, he might frown upon them, and by turning on the tap of his shower-bath, encompass them with such a'supply of aqua pure as they " never dreamt of in this philosophy." Howeves "it's an ill wind that blaws nae ane guid" as the auld Scotch proverb gangs: and whatever does the greatest good to the greatest number we must regard as best.' Some people have cried in vain for rain, and now it had come to chagrin of pleasure seekers. However the best was made of it, and those who were bent on out door sports had to be content with indoor amusements. We subjoin some particulars— Sunday School Picnics. It was intended that the Wesleyan Sunday school Picnic should have been held at Mr. Lewis's, Allendale, but owing to the heavy rain of the previous day, and the thre...
WOODCHESTER. [From our own Correspondent.] April 22,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 26 April 1878
WOODCHESTEB. prrom our own Correspondent.] April 22,1878. Since I last -wrote we have had nice rains which has improved the country greatly. Dooner's Pantechnatlieca of the Russo Turkisli war was exhibited here in the school room to a crowded audience. The Primitive Methodist Sunday School' Anniversary was held here on Sunday and Monday last, and was a great success. On Sunday two sermons were preached by the Rev. H. J. Parkinson, of Strathalbyn, the chapel being crowded at both services. On Monday a tea and public meeting took place, both of which were largely attended. The collections were very satisfactory, nearly double the amount being collected this time than on any previous year.
AUBURN. [From our own Correspondent.] April 26, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 30 April 1878
AIJBURN, [from our own Correspondent. J April 26, 1878. The Easter holidays passed off very quietly up here. The farmers have all been too busy ploughing and sowing to spend time in holi day making. Our local cricket club played a match on Easter Monday at Mintaro with that club, and were beaten. We have had a visit from, the W heeler Family. They are well deserving of a visit, Mrs. Whesler's singing being very good, but, owing to the weather, there was a small at tendance. An addition has been made to our Post and Telegraph Station lately, a wide verandah having been put up, and the delivery of letters, &c., now takes place outside instead of as formerly in the lobby, which is now ex clusively for telegraph purposes. The annual vestry meeting of St. John's Church was held on Easter Tuesday. There tvrs a small attendance of seatholders. The balance-sheet was read and adopted, and the retiring officers were reappointed for the en suing year. The weather is all that can be des...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE KAPUNDA HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 30 April 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. [It must be understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents under this heading.] THE KAPUNDA HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—I have read with attention the various letters which have appeared in recent issues of the Herald in reference to the Kapunda Hospital. It is well that if there is anv real grievance respecting a public institution it should be thoroughly ventilated. It is well also that imaginary grievances should be exposed and errors corrected, so that the institution concerned may not suffer loss undeservedly in public confidence. The correspondence arose in the first instance out of the case of the young man Duncan, and to it has been added another of a some what similar character. I should have thought that with regard to the former, and the general rules under which it comes, your own full and clear footnote had been a sufficient answer. But the object of' some people is not to learn the truth, but to find fault. The rules and r...
BROADBRIM'S NEW-YORK LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 30 April 1878
BBOADBBIM'S NEW-TOEK LETTER. " Though I speak with the tongnes of men and of angels, and hare not charity, then am I become as the sounding brass, or as a tink ling cymbaL" At one o'clock on the tenth day of' April, 1876, an old man lay struggling with the angel of death in the most costly marble palace in New-York. The wealth'of the world lay scattered about, gathered from every nation on the face of the earth. Precious fabrics from India and Persian looms hung around the couch of the bying man, bought with the unceasing toil of countless lives in those far off lands where blood and brain are but minor factors in the terrible problem of life. No child was there to sooth his dying moments, nor scarcely a grieving friend. One old woman, who for years had been denied his sympathy, silently watched the struggle which in a few moments would leave her the richest widow in the world. Hie struggle was a protracted one ; but death, which comes sooner or later to us all, had stricken down th...
HOLIDAY RAMBLES IN TASMANIA AND VICTORIA. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 30 April 1878
HOLIDAY BAMBLES IN" TAS MANIA AND VICTORIA. No. I. I confess to a belief in some of the old axioms handed down to us from our remote ancestors—using the latter words in a modi fied sense, for if there be any truth in the Darwinian theory, there would be great risk of error in attributing any of those wise old saws to our first forefathers, the monkeys, re garding which species it is a common belief at the present day amongst the uncivilized that they do hot so much lack the ability to speak, but are deterred from doing so by the reflection that a free exercise of the gift of speech would lead to their being compelled to work. Well, one of the saws to which (irre spective of any consideration as to the exact date when it was first pithily put before the mental consideration of admiring humanity) I pin my faith is that which tells us " Pre vention is better than cure." Just as the hot weather set in I received some unpleasant re minders of the fact that however good my spirits, my bod...

RE TITER'S TELEGRAMS Singapore, April 25. Received Anvil 25. 8 o.m. The Bulgarians have attacked eight Mus sulman -villages, and have committed great outrages. Severe fighting has taken place between the insurgents and the Russian troops. LONDON, April 24. Ths Mussulman rising in Roumelia and Macedonia is becoming serious, and is attri butable solely to the unendurable character of the Russo-Bulgarian regime. The negotiations between England and Russia for the withdrawal of the British iron clad squadron and the Russian troops from the vicinity of Constantinople still continue. Prince Bismarck has proposed as a basis for the holding of the European Congress an invitation to the Powers to revise the treaty of 1856, taking into consideration the present situation resulting from the effects of the war. The British Government regard the invitation as of too indefinite a character. LONDON. April 25. The national subscription is being raised throughout Russia for the establishment of a fl...
