BEUTER'S TELEGrEAMS. ATMtTV AT^O'PTlTRr! ATiTFO'R'VTAlVr'M'A'fTi Auckland, March 12. "Ettroph. Two French ironclads are cruising at the mouth of (he Dardanelles. Greece has an army of 140,000 troops. A Berlin, journalist asserts that Adxgiral HornbyTias been ordered to seize theTuridsk; fleet if necessary to prevent its surrender to Russia. Prince Bismarck's intervention on behalf of Austria has secured the Russian assent to an early meeting of Congress, and a collision with Austria has been thus avoided. The English war votes have been appro priated as follows : — Army, £3,000,000 ; Navy,£2,000,000.; special services, £1,000,000. It is expected that there will be a Russian export of 5,000,000 quarters of wheat when the Black Sea is opened. Lord Derby,- in a despatch against the Rus : sian occupation of Constantinople, decided that the entry of the Russian troops would be a breach of the armistice tending to pro voke hostilities.

The Kapunda [?]eral[?]. FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1878. ELECTORAL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878

Cije Staputda i FRIDAY, MAUCH 15, 1878. ELECTORAL MATTERS. Seeing that both Mr. Nock and Mr. Coles have intimated it is not their intention to become candidates for the representation of the Light, in the ensuing Parliament, it is high time the electors bestirred themselves, and invited those, either from within or outside the district, whom they may wish to do so to signify whether or not they will come forward as candi dates. It is necessary alilr? in the interests of the district and of the most suitable candidates that some understanding on this matter should be early arrived at, for it not unfre quently happens where there is a scarcity of candidates at first and a plurality at last, that the least suit able get returned, owing to the sup porters of the better class splitting their votes. When it was understood that two out of the three of our old members intended again to seek the suffrages of the electors, this was not so urgent a matter as it. has since become, for the proba...

DUTTON TOWN. [From our own Correspondent.] March. 13, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878

DUTTON TOWN. j~From our own Correspondent.] March. 13,1878. The hot weather still continues, and we are ail patiently "waiting for the long expected rains. Some farmers are busy ploughing, but the veiy dry state of the ground renders that operation not only unpleasant, but in many cases very difficult. A meeting was held yesterday of those in terested in the erection of a Congregational Church at Dutton. Mr. Thomas Brook having most generously promised to give a piece of land for the purpose, it was decided to at once take steps towards obtaining the requisite funds for erecting a suitable building. The very satisfactory amount of £40 was promised by those present, and the promoters have eveiy confidence of obtaining a sufficient sum to enable them to proceed with the building at no distant date. I regret that Mr. Steinborner, a respected farmer of Dutton, sustained a severe loss to day, by the loss of a valuable horse. He had the animal at the blacksmith's for the purpose of having...

TARCOWIE. [From our own correspondent.] March 4, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878

TAB.COWTE. [From our own correspondent.] March 4, 1878. For the last few weeks the weather lias been yery hot and dusty, and farm work has been almost at a standstill, as the land has been very hard, and in many places could not be ploughed. To-day we had a nice change. About an inch of rain has fallen, and there is every appearance of more ; the dams are all full, and as the roads are very bad it will stop the wheat-carting for awhile. It will be a busy time £or the farmers until the seed-time is over, as they are are all late, owing to the dry weather. The crops in general have turned out far less than was expected—the thickest and best looking turning out worst, owing to the rust, which was very bad in many places.—Thousands of rabbits died during the hot weather, and they have never been known to eat porcupine grass before this year.—A great many people are complaining of sore eyes.

STANLEY'S BATTLE WITH THE AFRICAN DWARFS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 15 March 1878

STANLEY'S BATTLE WITH THE ALBICAN DWAKFS. At a meeting of the South. African Philo sophical Society, at Cape Town, Sir. Stanley gave a long account of his expedition in Africa, and the perils he met with. The fol lowing is his description -of an encounter with the tribe of dwarfs :— The first notice that we had of any distur bance was one day when one of our women went down to get water. We saw there an arrow in her breast. We asked her who did it, and she said one of the little men. Then they all swarmed about us just like bees. They began piff pifp with their bows and arrows. The war cries of these little savages were perfectly deafening. Although they were such little men, they made the forest ring with their cries. We were not prepared for this attack, and began to pull down the village in order to surround ourselves with a palisade, so that we might have some defence against the arrows. The battle began, and very dreadful it was. There was no rest. It was shooting day and night...

ARRIVAL OF THE QUEEN OF THE SOUTH THROUGH THE MURRAY MOUTH. ("From tie Southern ArgusS] It is with great pleasure we have to chron icle the arrival at Groolwa of Captain George Johnston's fine new steamer, the Queen of the South, on Monday last, 11th inst. She had been expected since Saturday, and as it had been notified that steamers would run to the Mouth, conveying passengers free of all charge, a considerable number had. gathered together at Goolwa on that day. After various Tumours had been circulated, some thing definite was known by a telegram from Adelaide to the effect that the vessel had started early in the morning from Port Ade laide, and consequently could not get to the Mouth that day. In the evening it was known that she had arrived safely at Port "Victor. Captain Johnston brought her be tween the Seal Rock and Granite Island, where a heavy sea was running, with frequent breakers right across, so that some idea was obtained of what she could do in the surf.

TASMANIA SCHOLARS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 19 March 1878

TASMANIA** SCHOLARS IN ENGLAND. At the fifth annual dinner of Tasmanians held in London last December, several gentlemen were present who having won Tasmanian Scholarships were finishing their education at Oxford or Cambridge. We quote from the Tasmanian Mail the following speeches of two of those gentlemen in response to the toast of " The Tasmanian Scholars":— Mr. C. C. Williamson said—I rise to reply to this toast with mingled feelings of pleasure and regret. It is but natural to feel pleased with such good company and such good cheer. On the other hand, I am sorry that the duty of replying * to the toast does not devolve on those who have discharged it so well in past years, for every new man who speaks means an old face missed. However, those we miss have, many of them, done with their sad exile, and are basking under the sky of our sunny island. I say sad advisedly, for no 'one "seeing us here to-night would call us go. (Laughter.) However, here we are in this great Babylon, w...

RUSSIAN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 19 March 1878

RUSSIAN SOCIETY. Russians are extremely sensitive to the opinion of foreigners, and this renders them amiable to a point which quite charms a stranger on his first arrival in the country The stranger'i second impression, formed at the end of a week or two, is that there is a good deal of acting in the society-manners of his hosts ; his third, which begins to shape itself towards the close of a month, is that he has heard an uncommon number of untruths. The humility with which Russians affect to speak of the backwardness of their country covers a deep feeling of pride in its strength; and while they seem to invite criticism they really resent it. This appears when a Rus sian has become sufficiently intimate with you to throw off the mask and challenge comparisons between' your country and his; then he brags of his superiority with brutal bluntnees. His Czar is popular ; his country wonderfully advanced, considering the draw backs of climate; his army is the largest and finest going; ...

BRITTLE BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 19 March 1878

BRITTLE BABIES. Formerly the lamp chimney Texed the souls alike of the righteous and of the wicked be cause of its exceeding brittleness. It broke whenever an effort was made to clean it, and frequently it flew into pieceB when no man was touching it, and merely of its own wicked will. Men with small salaries were often brought to the brink of ruin by the constant drain upon their pocketB which resulted from tbe effort to keep two or three lamps supplied with chimneys, and it is believed that Mr. Oilman was induced to steal 200,000 dol., chiefly because his pride led him to use none but unbroken lamp-chimneys—although in his pathetic and veracious confession he un accountably fails to mention the fact. Now, however, the invention of Bastie glass has rendered the chimney no longer a grief and a l/urden. The new Bastie chimney cannot be broken with anything short of a sledge hammer. It can be used as a hammer where with to drive nails and to loosen the bungs of beer-barrels, or as a c...

THE MAN-EATING TEEE OF MADAGASCAR. The following description of this singular found in the inland of Madagascar, was originally published in the last Graefe and Walther's Magazine of CarJruhe, together with notes upon it, by Dr. Omelius ITretl low ski, to whom the letter by Carl Leche, the discoverer, from which the following is ex tracted, was addressed:—The Mkodos are a very primitive race, going entirely naked, having only faint vestiges of tribal relations, and no religion beyond that of the awful reverence which they pay to the sacred tree. They dwell entirely in caves hollowed out of the limestone rocks is their hills, and are one of the smallest of races, the men seldom, ex ceed fifty-six inches in height- At the bot tom of a valley (I had no barometer, but should think it not over four hundred feet above the level of the sea, and near it east ern extiemity), we came to a deep, tarn-like lake, about a mile in diameter, the sluggish waters of which overflowed into a tortuous r...
