POPHAM V. McEWEN. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 June 1865
POPHAM V. McEWEN. This case caused considerable excitement — the Court House, during the time the trial was going on, being nearly full. The defendant was changed with using abusive and insulting language to com plainant on the 1 7th May, calculated to provoke a breach of the peace. The de fendant pleaded not guilty. Mr. Ruda'l appeared on behalf of Dr. Popham, and the defendant was without counsel. At the commencement of tho proceed ings Mr. Rudall wished the case to be ad journed,in consequence of the absence of a material witness, stating that, from the evidence that would be given, it would be found that the defendant, without any provocation whatever on the part of com plainant, went into the shop of Dr. Mill ner, and whilst there the defendant used language of the most abusive character, and followed his client up the street showering upon him the most filthy epithets, and tho complainant remained quiet whilst this abuse was heaped upon him, and he hoped - [Here tho police *sw...

VOLUNTEER MEETING AT GAWLER. A meeting of the volunteers of Gawler took place last Saturday, at tha Gawlor Anns Hotel, to consider the new Guard Bill. Our space will not admit of a full report of the speeches delivered on the occasion, bnt we subjoin a few of the principal slateinents*. - Captain OgUyie was called upon to preside. Assistant Surgeon Noxr moved the first resolution, remarking that it might be safely affirmed that successive Governments had never yet essayed to carry out its provisions in its integrity. (Hear, hear.) The volunteers were promised exemptions and privileges never realized, and were led to expect that when on duty they would experience the same considera tion as any other force embodied for the service of the public ; but no pay was given the men on review days, and to any remonstrance against this evasion of the Volunteer Act, the reply was that the force was not ordered out on duty, but reauested to assemble.

ADELAIDE GOSSIP. ^ [From our City correspondent.] '''' The principal topic with us whilst X am writing is the extraordinary step your elder Baroesa member has just takcu to prove the truth of his assertion tbat the present j ministry 'is a weak one.1' AVhatever they might have been before his vengeful motion, its result has given them strength enough, while the squat ters have to thank him for worse than ? nothing, and Arthur Blyth for worse than that. ; The House however could not be per suaded that in iiltreating itself last week, it had been iHtrcated; that it had heen dragged through dirt, when there ' had only been a dust, or that it ought to be resentful towards the Cabinet, in ^plaee of thankful; and accordingly the!

MONTHLY READINGS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 17 June 1865
MONTHLY READINGS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir. — I see by the correspondent's letter in the Adcerltser, from Melrose. that monthly readings have been established there and arc very successful. Now, Sir, I think we in - Gawler might veil take a hint from our Nor- \ them neighbours. 'We have a Debating Ctass well established, and a Musical Class ably con- i ducted bv Mr. Bainsford. Misht not the.^e two classes unite in giving a series of monthly entertainments at a low figure — say 3d. back scats and Gd. front — on the same plan as the Birmingham weekly concerts ? Season tickets, I doubt not, would be readily taken by most of the loading families in the town and ncu?h brurhood ; and the constant appearance of the members of either class before the public would give them greater confidence and secure greater efficiency on the occasion of their more am bitious efforts at anniversaries or public con certs. I am, Sir, Toor% &c EXCELSIOR.

MUDHOLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 17 June 1865
MFDnOLB. (From our Special Correspondent.') The popular idea of a H&nyip seems to be that it is a kind of Phoca, a setaceous (not cetaceous you young » imp,) amphi bious animal ;©f extremely retired habits that buries 'ifitlf.:by day below the thick sedge and rushe»-_oi our lakes and rivers, and emerges only at rare intervals by night to wallow' a while, bark a little, then sink again to its muddy retreats, but I do not agree with this vulgar opinion of the form and character of this noble creature. I believe the liunyip to be- a Biped, standing perfectly erect when not assuming any more graceful or convenient attitude, of noble and pleasing form and aspeet of majestic mien aud carriage, and of gentle and playful dispositi ounaturally, although capable of being roused ou oc casion to the sublimest pitch of passion. Its skiu is extremely fair and delicate — its snout of a sweetly bulbous and re trousse cast ; its moutli of good dimension is formed by two ever-smiling lips of ...

GUMERACHA. FFrom «nr own Corresponclent.'| Gumcracha, June 2nd, 1S65. With this I forward & report of the cases heard and adjudicated on at the sittings of our Local and Police Court yesterday. I have no other news of im portance' sufficient to write about in this quiet township, whore one day is the exact likeness of its predecessor.
