BREACH OF PROMISE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
BREACH OF PROMISE. The last ease of breach of promise of marriage, that of Heap versus Marris, does not add much glory to a sort of action which is perhaps doomed'soon to disappear. In this affair the ordinary relations of the parties were reversed, it was the man who 8&lt;ied the woman for her breach of contract. There could be no sort of doubts as to the fact of the contract. An agreement was signed by the parties, wherebj' the defen dant agi*eed to become the lawful wife of the plaintiff on or about January 1, 1875. In default the defendant was to pay a ihird share of the property which might be left to her under the will of her parents. She was to pay mo:e than this if she did not espouse her business-like wooer. She was to pay him £20 per annum at the end of 1875, £40 at the end of 1876, .£80 in 1877, and so on, in a sort of martingale, always doubling till the lady died, or married, or perhaps became bankrupt; Tn the tenth year this sum would be over 0.000 a year. It i...
AMERICAN SYMPATHY WITH ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
AMERICAN SYMPATHY WITH ENGLAND. As an example of American symp tthy with England in the present crisis, we (Border Watch) give the following ex tract from a sermon preached by the Kev. De Witt Talmage, at New York on the 8ih February :—''The third event of the week is volcanic. Turkey crushed, Russia triumphant, England aghast, the world confounded! What next ? you ask. That's what all the world asks. There has not been such an intense moment in European politics during our lifetime as at this moment. If England halt, she becomes a second-rate power; if she march, then all Europe is an Armageddon. May the God of nations appear in this crisis. I am glad that the Turkish Empire has perished. She was an old butcher, and the most cheerful page of her history to me is her obituary. Where shall the miserable old carcase be buried ? Where are the spades long enough to dig a hole deep enough ? But I have no admiration for her conqueror— Bussia. We have heard from that nation a great dear of...
SPURGEON ON THE PULPIT. [From the Leader.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
SPUBGEON ON THE PULPIT. fFrom the Leader. The Bev. Charles H. Spurgeon is per haps one of the last men in the world whom we should expect to find occupying himself with the study of such vanities as posture, action, i*nd gesture in pulpit utterances. So remarks an American journalist, who has recently had an oppor tunity of forming an opinion on the sub ject. No one privileged to hear him (says the journalist referred to) would suppose that he had for a moment ^ seri ously given his mind to these considera tions. Elegance of action, appropriate ness of posture, and gracefulness of gesture are not leading impressions one carries away after hearing a sermon at the Tabernacle in Jjondon. Nevertheless, Mr. Spurgeon has thought fit to address two lectures to his students at the college connected with the Tabernacle, taking for his text these important elements in suc cessful preaching. In the main, he has been content rather to point out what should he avoided than to indicate precisely ...

HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUR IS DUE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUB IS DUE. All hull to the brave and gallant souls, Who flinch, not from the strife, But with right and might "Will bravely fight, On the battle-field of life, What matter where their posts are fixed, Be their weapons sword or pen, If they fight for the right By their vouchsafed light, All hqfl to the gallant men!

And bail! all hail j Tp the student pale, "Who gives to science birth! But hail above all to the man who braves 3Tar worse than war's alarms : The trouserless wight Who -walks through the night, With the baby in his arms. —Melbourne punch Almanac.
The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, MAY 7,1878. TO-NIGHT'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
Cf)c I&apuntia fremiti. TUESDAY, MAY 7,1878. TO-NIG-HT'S MEETIHG. It is hardly necessary we sliould remind our readers of the meeting to be held in the Institute TTa.ll this evening. The occasion for such a meeting is to be regretted alike in the interests of the district and of Mr. Carroll himself. So far as the latter is concerned, however, he has himself to thank for the unenviable position he now occupies, in having the atten tion not only of the electors of Light, but of the whole colony, fixed on him in so unfavourable a manner. Had Mr. Carroll been content to have simply continued his career as a private citizen, instead of thrusting himself forward as an aspirant for Parliamen tary honours, his past history would not have been enquired into by the Press, nor by the public at large ; nor would the knowledge that he had broken the laws in the past have been placed in the way' of his earning an honest livelihood and seeking to re trieve a respectable position amongst hi...
SELECTED POETRY, THE ONE [?]VE LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
SELECTED POETRY, THE ONE I'VE LOST. As in my lonely cot I sit, And think of days gone by, I listen for thy merry laugh, And hope to find thee nigh. Ajn.fi! J listen, but in Tain— Thy voice I never hear; Thy mirthful laugh has passed away, And nothing left to cheer. J look around, and view the spot Where we our loves did speak; I look in vain—thou art not there ; Ah! my poor heart will break. X seek for thee ■where'er X roam, But only search in vain ; Thy spirit from this world bath fled, Nor "will return again. Enough of this! I must be nerved To work out Time's decree, And think the day is not far off When we'll united be. I'll speak thy name with latest breath, No matter where I be ; And pray that my poor soul shall find A place in heaven with thee. In this my consolation lies, Though other hopes are vain, That while on earth no more we'll meet, In heaven, we'll meet again. Pal mere toil. S. Y.
REUTER'S TELEGRAMS VICTORIA. Melbourne, May 2. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
REUTER'S TELEGRAMS "VICTORIA. Melbourne, Mav 2. A deputation of booksellers ■waited 011 the Postmaster-General to-daj, to urge the ne cessity of a reduction in the postal charges on messages sent to the neighboring colonies, and also the adoption of a uniform rate, in fact an intercolonial rate, on newspapers. Mr. Cutli bert, in reply, said he would bring the matter under the notice of his colleagues, with a view to an amendment of the Postal Act in the direction required by the deputation. The will of the late Judge Fellows was proved to-day. His estate is valued at £24,000. Probate has been granted under the will of the late Mr. Edward Wilson, of the Argus, concerning property in Victoria valued at £23,000. The half-yearly meeting of the Australian and European Bant was held to-day. The report was highly satisfactory. After paying a dividend of 7 per cent, the undivided profits amount to £10,000. Wheat has improved. The quotation is 5s. 9d., but holders require an advance, which b...
HOLIDAY RAMBLES IN TASMANIA AND VICTORIA. II [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878
HOLIDAY RAMBLES IN TAS MjOTA and Victoria. No. II. The one liiglit we spent in Melbourne was not calculated to tempt us to prolong our stay jut then, for attractive as Melbourne un doubtedly is to visitors from the adjacent colonies, the closeness and disagreeable heat ■which prevailed at this particular season were such as to induce all who could do so to seek a cooler and more pleasant clime with as little delay as possible. Accordingly shortly after 9 o'clock on Friday" morning, we presented ourselves at the Tasmanian Steam Navigation Company's office to secure our passage by the Mangana, which was announced to sail at 10. The recent hot weather had caused quite a stream or visitors to now to tne island colony, and one result of tliis was that the berths had all been taken up. However, one of our fellow passengers per Aldinga, who was going by this vessel in order to take to wife one of the fair daughters of Tasmania, who indeed was said to bo .one of the Bell(e)s of the island, ...
