SELECTED POETRY. THE DEATH OF MRS. FRY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 10 May 1867
SELECTED POETJ&Y. THE DEATH OF MRS. FRY. The felon bewailing-the Magdalene's sigh The tears of the widow-the fatherless cry. These are her epitaph written above Lasting memorials-records of love. Spirit of Howard! look down from on high On the grave of thy sister, Elizabeth Fry. Wrapped w thy mantle she entered the cell A priestess of heaven on the threshold of helL An angel of mercy wherever she went, Calling, like Peter, on men to repent. Wearisome nights-wearisome days, Mindful of duty-unmindful of praise. Inthegloom of the dungeor, upon the cold ground By tiie sick and the dying, there she was found; Oh, many a sight she looked upon there, Of sickness and death, of sorrow and care. T.iTra Aaron, she stood 'tween the living and dead, A stranger to doubting, a stranger to dread, The handmaidfof Heaven, by Charity sent, Scattering blessings wherever she went. The feelings of woman-the courage of man, Gave love and decision to every plan. Nations of Europe are shrouded in gl...

ADELAIDE COiiN MARKET. Adelaide, May 9, 1867. Business in Wheat and Flour has been very inactive during last week, and transactions were small. Wheat is still scarce, but at the same time the demand.is not large. Of Flour a few large sales came under our notice, but generally this staple is very dull. There is a fair trade demand for Bran and Pollard. Oats and Barley are neglected; good English Barley for malting is enquired for. The news by the English mail is favourable as regards Wheat. General business is still very much depressed. Our quotations to-day are as follow Wheat in town, 4/1 to 4/2 per bushel; ditto at Port, 4/3 to 4/3J; Fiour, Town Brand, £10 10/ to£11 per ton; ditto, Country Brand, .flO^to £10 10/; Bran, /10 per bushel; Pollard, l/l; Cape Barley, 3/; English ditto, 3/9 to 4/6; Cape Oats, 3/9 to 4J; English ditto, 4/ to 4/3i A.

SHEAOAK LOG. [From our own Correspondent.] Wednesday, May 8, 1867. Everything in our township goes on in its usual way; the farmers are very busy getting the soil ready for the seed, all other business being subservient to this. Indeed very little life is seen in our little, but progressive town ship. Illness seems not to visit us much, but of course accidents will occur, and one of our neigh bours, who had a sunstroke about December last, has duriag the last fortnight had a relapse ; but i when we saw him on Monday last he was re -covering his speech, and we liope that he -will soon be about again, as he has a wife and young family dependant upon him. He (Mr Littleson) is ereatly respected. Tnere have been an unusual number of parties given for this time of the year, consequent upon the young people changing their position in life, and everything, we are told, went off as 4 merry as the marriage bell' ought to ring. I find that we have lost our old friend Mr Phillips, tlie schoolma...

KOOKINGA. fFrom our own Correspondent.J Tuesday, May 7, 1867. I The unusual dullness which has prevailed for some length of time at k'ooringa, in consequence of the very narrow limits operations have as sumed at the Burra Mines, was to some extent broken on Thursday evening last by a very happy gathering of many of the townspeople and visitors from neighbouring townships, who had met lor the purpose of doing hono r, at a complimentary dinner, to Captain H.

THE BARRIER RANGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 10 May 1867
THE BARRIER RANGES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-May I ask through the medium of your valuable columns the following questions : 1st. Has the Government seDt any party up to the Barrier Ranges to search for gold ? 2nd. If not, why "has such an~~impO¥eant~"ff£ep*" been neglected ? Now, Sir, I am sure gold will no more come to us if we do not look for it properly, than pros perity would have come to South Australia had she sat still, sucking her thumbs. I would suggest that a memorial to the Go vernment be got up in Kapunda, praying that a party of twelve or fourteen experienced men (each with a couple of horses, and rations for two months) be sent up at once, and to send down news once a week; so by that means we might stand a chance of getting more reliable news. Hoping you will excuse me for troubling you (my excuse being the interest of the Colony), Iam'«TEN PERCENT." Kapunda, April 30, 1867.

MOONTA. Tuesday, May 7, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 10 May 1867
MOONTA. TFrom our own Correspondent,! Tuesday, May 7, 1867. The hopes of even the most sanguine of those who would persist in believing the reported gold discovery at the Barrier Ranges have been at last extinguished'; the return of several of those who had started for and visited the locality proving quite enough to damp the spirits of those remaining. There is considerable distress here at present; the Karkarilla Mine has stopped, and the Telta Mine is getting rid of several hands, and many men on the Moonta Mine are getting very small wages; consequently the tradesmen are driven to the verge of despair, and unless some of the small mines prove good ones, things will look very queer during the ensuing winter. The under-ground workings of the Moonta Mine are looking magnificent, quite as well as, if not better than ever. Some splendid ore is being raised from Bucha;'s Shaft, and they are getting some v&lt;>ry high class purple ore at the forty-fathom level in Taylor's Sh...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 17 May 1867
BRITISH AND FOREIGN. FAVOOBITE DAYS FOB MARRIAGE.-The latest reports of the Registrars-General of England and Scotland show that no two nations could differ more widely than do the English, and Scotch with regard to the choice of the days of . the week for marriage. The Scottish report' states that the favourite day for marriage in Scotland is the last day of the year, provided it does not fall on a Saturday or a Sunday. No marriages are celebrated on Sunday in Scotland, while in England it is the favourite day of the week for marriaga, 32 per cent, of the mar riages being contracted on that day. Monday is a favourite day in both countries. Saturday in England is the third day of the week in order of selection of marriage, 17 per cent, occurring on that day; but in Scotland no true Scot will marry on a Saturday, nor, indeed, begin any work of importance. With the Scot Satur day^ is an unlucky day for marriage, and. he is_ possessed-with the superstitious belief that if he married on...
