THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, April 19th, 1867. CORPORATION MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 April 1867
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, April Vdth, 1867. CORPORATION MATTERS. We are sorry to find that our anticipa tions-based on an experience of the pro ceedings of the Municipal Council during the first eighteen months of its existence that however other Councils, having but little work to do, might waste the time supposed to be devoted to the public ser vice in wordy disputations, such would not be the case in Kapunda for many years to come; we say we are sorry to be com pelled to admit that that opinion has proved rather erroneous. For the last three months the meetings have been somewhat more warm than pleasant, some Councillors being a trifle over hasty in the selection of words whereby to express their meanings, and others being just as much too quickly offended. Perhaps one great source of this evil may be found in the impecuniosity of 1 the Municipal- Treasury. Had pur worthy Councillors ".more money at their .'disposal, they Would use the superabundant energy which now finds vent ...
KOORINGA.. Tuesday, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 April 1867
KOORINGA.. TFrom our own Correspondent.J Tuesday, April 16. The Barrier Ranges gold-fields do not appear to have yet lost all their power of attraction, as many parties have arrived here on their way thither; and it is much to be hoped that, not withstanding all the conflicting and condem natory reports which have from time to time been published, those who have determined to give them a trial may be rewarded for their enterprise by substantial results, in the shape of a rich find of the precious metal. A sad accident occurred last Friday to a lad of the name of Brood, a driver employed by the Patent Copper Company. On attempting to get a seat on the shafts whilst the waggon was in motion he slipped, and was run over, sustaining such serious injuries that amputation of the left leg, below the knee, was found to be necessary, and was successfully performed by I>rs. Mayne and Dashwood. He is now at the Barra Hos pital, and progressing as well as can be antici pated. Beautiful and r...

LOCAL COURT-KAPUNDA. MONDAY, APRIL 15, 1867. [Before J. S. Browne, Esq., S.M-3 APPLICATIONS. OLDHAM V. CHAMBERLAIN. Mr Brady for plaintiff; Mr Budall (for Mr Paltnerj for defendant. This was an application by Mr Rudall for the defendant for a new trial, on the following grounds-1, improper rejection of evidence; 2, improper reception of evidence ; 3, the judgment being against the weight of evidence; 4, new evidence having come to light since the former hearing; and 5, the defendant having been taken by surprise in the matter. Mr Budall went on to argue the grounds raised. Mr Brady proceeded to argue against the ap plication, but His Worship said he he had gathered from the evidence of the defendant that her son had acted for her, and occasionally signed bills; and moreover, that she saw the horse used and driven in the business by her son, and must have known of the purchase. The defendant had allowed her son to act for her in the business, and there fore any one had a good right t...

ATTEMPTED FENIAN INSURRECTION IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 April 1867
ATTEMPTED FENIAN INSURREC TION IN IRELAND. At last something like a rising seems to have taken place in the south-west of Ireland. The 'Kingdom of Kerry' has been chosen by the Fenian leaders as the scene of their first attempt at insurrection. In some respects it cannot be denied that the ground is well selected; for there is no part of Ireland which offers greater natural difficulties to troops engaged in quelling an insurrection, and there is no district which affords greater facilities for the movement of rebels. In 1798, the bogs of Ulster were chosen as the opening scene of the then bloody drama; in 1848, the cabbage gardens of Tipperary for the ridiculous fiasco ; in 1867, the fastnesses of the far south-west. The rising at present ap pears to be confined to the peninsula lying be tween Kenmare River and Bay and Dingle Bay, It does not as yet extend into Cork on one side, or Limerick on the other. This peninsula iB about twenty miles wide at its broadest part, and about thirt...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
MISCELLANEA. A few days ag-o a little boy, 11 or 12 years of age, having procured some bricks, constructed a trap for the purpose ot catching larks. Some time afterwards, having observed that the lid of the trap had fallen, he put his hand in to grasp what he supposed to be a lark, when an enormous rat, that had been captured, caught him bv the little finger and bit it severely- Little notice appears to have been taken of the circumstance until a few days ago, when he was taken seriously ill, with every symptom of hydrophobia, or of persons afflicted with delirium tremens. At times the paroxysms have been so violent that the combined efforts of four men have been almost unable to keep him in bed, while he struggled hard to seize their hands or arms with his teeth, and at these times his cries have been dreadful to hear. Little hope is entertained of his re covery. Whether the rat was mad, or had eaten something poisonous, or what, it is impossible to determine. A WONDERFUL MACHINE.-...
MR. JAMES GORDON BENNETT. JUN., AND PRINCE ALFRED. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
JAMES GORDON BENNETT. JUN., AND PBINCE ALFRED. Mr. James,Gordon Bennetfy jun., is de cidedly a greater mail than Columbus. The latter only partially discovered the greatness of America, but Mr. Bennett has at once found the weak point of En gland. One was dubiously received by savages, the other received by princes of royal blood. There is a story that the American Government once proposed to fit out an expedition for purposes of aiscovery in the Mediterranean. Bat Mr. Bennett, jun., has done more than his Government. He has just explored the Solent and the Southampton Water, and discovered houses which have never been open to Englishmen, however deserv ing. Honours formerly used to be gained by saving lives, but now they appear to be won by losing them. The great St. Bennett is famous for walking on the water to save a child's life, but Mr. J. G. Bennett's fame is mixed up with the drowning of six men. We have no wish to disparage the late American yacht race, but the lamentable lo...

ARTEMUS WARD'S EXPERIENCE AS A FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
ARTEMUS WARD'S EXPERIENCE AS A FAKMER. Tlie Barclay County Agricultural So ciety having seriously invited the author of this volume to address them on the occasion of their next Annual Fair, he wrote to the President of the Society as follows: New York, June 21,1865. Dear Sir-I have the honour to ae-; knowledge the receipt of your letter of the ? 5th instant, in which you invite me to deliver an address before your "excellent Agricultural Society. I feel flattered, and I think I will come. Perhaps, meanwhile, a brief history of my experience as an agriculturist will be acceptable; and as that history no doubt contains suggestions of value to the entire agricultural community, 1 have concluded to write you through the Press. I have been an honest old farmer for some four years. My farm is in the interior of Maine. Unfortunately my lands are eleven miles from the railroad. Eleven miles is quite a distance to haul immense quantities of wheat, corn, rye, and oats; but as I havn't any to...
SELECTED POETRY. "SOMEBODY'S DABLING." [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
SELECTED POETEY. "SOMEBODY'S DABLING." Into a ward of the whitewashed walls Where the dead and the dying lay Wounded by bayonets, shells, and balls Somebody's darling was borne one day. Somebody's darling! So young and so brave, Wearing still on his pale, sweet face, Soon to be hid by the dust of the ^rave, The lingering light of his boyhood's grace. Matted and damp are the curls of gold Kissing the snow of that fair young brow; Pale are the lips of delicate mould Somebody's darling is dying now. Back from the beautiful, blue-veined face Biushevery wandering silken thread; Cross his hands as a sign of grace Somebody's darling is still and dead. Kiss him once for Somebody's sake^ Murmur a prayer soft and low, One bright curl from the cluster take Theywere somebody's pride you know. Somebody's hand hath reBted there; Was it a mother's, soft and white? And have the lips of a sister fair Been baptized in those wares of light ? God knows best. He was Somebody's love Somebody's heart ensh...
AUBURN. 24th April, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
AUBURN. fFrom our own Correspondent.] 24th April, 1867. On April 16th Mr W. Townsend, M.P. delivered his interesting lecture in the Town Hall,on "The Lights and Shadows of London Life Arthur King, Esq., J.P., occupied the chair; the Hall was very comfortably filled, during the evening several gentlemen amateurs sung some very nice glees. Mr Pilgrim, of North Adelaide, presided at the harmonium. After the usual votes of thanks the meeting was brought to a close by singing the National Anthem. The proceeds of the collection, which amounted to £3 3/, were handed towards the Institute fund. I understand the Presbyterians have decided upon holding service once a week ia the Town Hall after the month of June. The Rev. W. Davidson has been asked to conduct the service. Miss Aitken will give a series of readings in the Towu Hall on Monday evening. I think from what the Auburnites have heard of this talented lady, that they will not allow this op portunity pass without hearing her. Mr Macaam...
CORRESPONDENCE. BATHURST BURR. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 April 1867
OORRES PONDENCE. BATHURST BURR. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Having observed tbat some of the Dis trict Councils in this neighbourhood have for warded a specimen of a burr, or thistle, to the Curator of the Botanical Gardens, and received a reply that the plant was not the Bathurst Burr, of disagreeable notoriety, I thought it might be desirable to clear np the point; and, on a recent visit to Adelaide, I took to the Gardens a plant of a burr which has found a local home on the public road on the top of the hill between Bagot's Gap and Greenock Creek, and for the benefit of the public, I beg to give you the result of ray enquiries. The plant in question appeared as a single specimen about three ygars ago, on a piece of deep-black Bay of Biscay road, in the District of Belvidere. The adjoining farmers have made some endeavours to get rid of it, but this season I see it still spreading; it is not, however, so far spread as yet but that it could be thoroughly eradicated by a little attention, an...
