GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] April 29, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

GAWLER. ["From our own Correspondent/] Auril 29.1878. Easter passed off quietly here, witli the usual Sunday School picnics. The Muff Club from Adelaide played the Crawlers on Easter Monday, the latter-winning in one innings with seventeen runs to spare. Several of the Muff team did not turn up, and substitutes had to be taken on in their place. Tardiff bowled splendidly for the Crawlers. In the evening there was a grand musical entertainment given by Adelaide talent. The attendance was not large, and I am afraid the receipts will not cover the ex penditure. The Friendly Societies* Demonstration pre mises to be a success if the Clerk of the weather will only give us a fine day for the occasion. The entries for the sports are pretty good ; I see Kapunda is represented in some of the events. Some fine showers of rain fell yesterday, and indication of more is about. Attempts are being made to start a dramatic club and gymnasium here, which I have no doubt will be a good thing for the r...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1878. LAND-SHARKING IN THE AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

Cl)e Haputtita HeralU. FRIDAY, MAT 3, 1878. LAND-SHA.BKING IN THE AREAS. It has been tacitly assumed that land-sharking, as it was termed, has now been put a stop to, and in the particular sense in which the term was at first used this is true. But as a matter of fact the evil which, was the bane of those days is in the Areas nearly as prevalent now as then. The difference, however, is in the personnel, and tends to confirm the truth of the old proverb that one man may steal a horse and there will be but little out cry, whilst if another even looks at it from over a hedge he stands a good chance of being transported. for merly it was the farmer who com plained of being the sufferer by the action of the middleman, or land-shark as he was more forcibly termed—now it is the farmer himself who has taken up this pursuit, which he doubtless finds more remunerative than confining his attention solely to the cultivation, of cereals, or even combining with that pursuit sheepfarining on a sma...

HAMLEY BRIDGE. [From our own Correspondent.] April 30. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

HAMLEY BBTDGrE. [From our «wn Correspondent-] f — April 30. A public meeting was held at the Hamley Bridge Hotel, on Saturday, April 27, for the purpose of selecting two gentlemen residents in the locality to be recommended for ap pointment as Justices of the Peace, and also to advocate the appointment of a Trooper for the district. Mr. W. Zenner was voted to the chair, and opened the proceedings by stating that the want of one or two Justices was greatly felt in and near the township. Many small cases were let go through prose cutors having to go so far—either to Gawler or Biverton, twenty miles off. Although the township was much, quieter now than for merly, there was not one which required the services of a Trooper more. Messrs. It. B. McBobie and John Condon were unanimously chosen for recommendation, and a hope was expressed that the Government would speedily appoint them, it was also agreed to ask the Government to station a Trooper here. It was resolved that memorials should ...

MURRAY RIVER. [From our own Correspondent.] April 27, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

MURRAY RIVER, rFrom our own Correspondent.] April 27,1878. I am glad to report that w« Hare every prospect of a good season, the country already begins to look beautiful and green. The river trade is in full swing again, at least on the lower rivers. Steamers are pas sing up and down every day ; 10,000 bales of vrool have gone down, and more is expected soon. A The plans of the township of Morgan are out, and it looks very well on paper. I have no doubt but that people who read the papers and see so much about the Liverpool of South Australia -will find that there is another way of getting the wool to the seaboard. The Blanchetown races are to come off in a few days, and a good meeting is expected. Game is very scarce on the river, owing, I think, to the rain water on the plains in the back country.

MURDER OF A LADYIN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

MURDER OF A LID YIN CHURCH. A despatch from Philadelphia on the 18th uit. says—A tragedy almost without a parallel in the history of this or any other city's crime was enacted at the Lom bard Street Protestant Episcopal Church to-day. The congregation had assembled, and the pastor had begun bis sermon, when a man of genteel appearance, but with a wild uncertain eye, entered the church and sat in one of the rear pews. The inteiruption which his entrance caused was but slight, and before the sermon was concluded his presence was forgotten. When the benediction was about to be given,'however, he jumped to his feet and walked to a pew directly behind the one occupied by Mrs. Elizabeth Sayres. He hesitated for a moment before entering, but finally went in and assumed a reve rential air until the blessing was concluded. No sooner had the last wo:ds octhe min ister died away than the stranger quickly drew a Derringer pistol from his pocket, and taking deliberate aim, shot Mrs. Sayres in th...

A MONTH OF HORROR. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

A MONTH OF HORROR. jTFrom our own Correspondent.] Asiatic cholera visits many of the military stations periodically. In some stations every year, in others at intervals of two, three, four, or five years, always giving death a busy time j both among Europeans and natives, but I especially amongst natives. The natives of j India are all fatalists. Uo one has more dread of the epidemic before it comes, but once amongst them they show the utmost apathy. They sit down and smote the hookah, the abominable smell of which in itself is enough to breed a cholera, and say " Jon liota hain so hogo," which embodies the fntnlists' creed, " What is to be will be," and " Allah kerim," " God is merciful," but make no effort to check its progress or avoid contagion. Thus they die in myriads, and would in many cases remain unburied but for the sanitary laws of the British—and they are but very imperfectly executed, being entrusted to native officials, who are in many cases as careless about cleanline...

CORRESPONDENCE. [It mast be understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents under this heading.} BE FRANK CARROLL. TO THB EDITOB.

Had I not been confined to the house for the last four or five days I should have before this have given you certain information I possessed before the day on which he was no minated a candidate for such district relative to Mr. Carroll's antecedents. For the sake of the credit of the electors of this district which I am afraid has been sadly affected by the election of Mr. Carroll as one of our re presentatives in Parliament, allow me to give through the medium of your public columns the reasons why the information I have re ferred to was not made known publicly to the electors before the day of election.

SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

SOUTH AFBICA. Mr. J. B. Austin has kindly handed us a letter received from his son, who recently left this colony for the Transvaal. We make, the following interesting extracts:— Ben Cairnie, Griqualand East, South. Africa, Feby. 10, 1878. I am in hopes of purchasing a valuable farm adjoining this. It is of course the usual 3,000 acres, and has good agricultural as well as grazing land on it, with plenty of grass and water, but, unfortunately, no timber. This,^however, I could obtain for use from the Bonnars' farm. There are about three Kaffir Kraals on it, and from these I could most likely obtain what labor I required. In buying a farm here, however, there are several difficulties to be got over. In the first place very great care has to be taken that the certi ficate of title is made out in the name of the Griqua to whom it was originally granted, and if sold by him, the sale-note also must be obtained, the same having been signed before a Magistrate, and the power of attorney, w...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 3 May 1878

TO THIS KBITOE. Sir—Your leading article in last Tuesday's Serald in reference to Mr. F. S. Carroll and tlie Electoral Act, and the'disclosures therein, strike me with disappointment. I was led to believe through Mr. Carroll's declaration at a meeting held in Kapunda some time pre vious to the election that he had been wrong fully accused, and that the anonymous letter which was read at that meeting was the malicious act of a cowardly enemy or an tagonist. It seemtd at the time as if it liad been intended to weaken Mr. Carroll's reputa tion at the onset of the election ; but the ex tracts contained in Tuesday'6 Herald are no douht beyond contradiction, and I cannot help saying that thfe man (if any in South Australia) who" was in possession of the facts referred to, and having such knowledge of Mr. Carroll's antecedents proved himself but little better than Mr. Carroll by not publicly making the facts known. It seems, again, as if things were kept under until a time when the man's n...

UEW SOUTH WALES. Svdnev. Auril 29. It is probable that the Postmasters of New ■ South Wales and Queensland will leave for I Melbourne overland on Saturday to attend the Cable Conference. Trickett, the champion sculler, has met with an accident, which necessitated'tlie amputation of the third finger of the left hand. Mr. A.

OUB, CITY LETTER. [From oar own Correspondent.] Adelaide. Mav 2, 1878. The sensation of the day is the expose of Mr. IT. S. Carroll, M.P., for Light, which Dis trict has not been very happy in its choice of members. It was a singular coincidence that the Kap'j ada Herald and the Register should have thought of writing on the same subject at the same time, and I do not think Mr. Carroll can complain of any unfairness in the way either paper has dealt with the subject. He would have acted more wisely had he con tented himself by continuing in his position as Editor of the Lantern, without' seeking to thrust himself forward as a representative of the people. There are of course rumours of a libel action against the Register, damages £10,000; of the hon. members intention to take his seat and hold it against all comers of the probability of some action being taken by other hon. members if he should persist in appearing on the floor of the House, etc., and so forth, but what may really b...
