GOLDEN GIFTS. CHAPTER I. "Be mine the hut That from the mountain's side Views wilds and swelling floods."—COLLINS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 May 1867
?K>JLDEN GIFTS. , O-r BY THE AUTHOR OP "MABIAB";" " VERMONT V-ALE*" ETC., ETC. CHAPTEIQL* " Be mine the hut That from thfi mountain's side . Views wilds and swelling floods."-COLLINS. !Fifteen years ago, a traveller on the road to Mount Barker from Adelaide (and neither so near the one nor the other as to entirely satisfy the curiosity of our readers as to the exact site of our tale), deviating from what was then the main road, and selecting a well-beaten dray-track as his guide, would have passed a little slab hut, nestled away from general observation by clusters of trees and a large undergrowth of flowering shrubs peculiar tb the neighbourhood. It was, as we have said, of small dimensions, and, like many others scattered here and there in the same road, of rough slab construction, with a rough excrescence at one end of stone and pug, terminating at the top with a square chimney, from which gracefiilly curved the blue wreaths of smoke, giving it an habitable appearance even bef...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE INSTITUTE AND THE MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 May 1867
OOHRES PONDENCE. INSTITUTE AND THE MUTITAI* IMPEOVEMENT SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I was prevented by pressure of basi&ess from sending you a few remarks respecting the letters of my friends Messrs. Adamson and Williams in lime for last week's paper* - I see nothing in my previous letter to justify any con clusion that I think lightly of religion, or that I undervalue the work of the Young Men's Asso ciation. I cannot even believe with Mr Adamson that without the ballot the Mutual Improvement Society would become a "mutual corruption" Society. I do not form so low an estimate of the motives ot the yowng men aB to believe with Mr Williams that their reluctance " to go quietly out of existence-to die and make no sign," would prevent them taking any course by which their beneficial influence would be extended. I am satisfied that the Association has done good, and will continue to do good; and I give them all credit from having occupied ground which the torpid state of the Ins...

OPENING OF THE NEW BAPTIST CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 24 May 1867
OPENING OF THE NEW BAPTIST CHAPEL. This chapel, the foundation stone of which was laid on the 24th of May last year, was so far finished on Friday last that the chapel proper was opened on that day by a devotional service, at whiv.h there was a large attendance, the body of the spacious chapel being comfortably filled. The side pews were not erected at this time, but had they been they would doubtless have been also occupied. On the platform, besides the Rev. W. A. Clapton, the pastor of the chapel, we noticed the Re*'. Mr Hancock (Bible Christian), the Rev. Mr Warner (Primitive Methodist), Messrs. Lewis and Will, representing tiie Congregational body, whoB pastor (the Rev. M. Williams) was unavoid ably absent in Adelaide, and Mr W. Oldham. The proceedings were opened by singing a hymn, after which the Rev. W. A. Claxton read a portion of Scripture, and offered up an earnest prayer appropriate to the occasion. Another hymn having been sung, Mr Lewis engaged in prayer, after which th...

LOCAL COURT-KAPUNDA. MONDAY, MAY 20. ^Before J. S. Browne, Esq., S.MJ APPLICATIONS. HAEDY V. HoUNSEVELl.. Hugging and Benham for the plaintiff; Mr Palmer for defendant. This was an application on the part of the defendant for a new trial, on the grounds that the writing on the foil specifying the balance, was there when the plaintiff signed it; that the ruling of tiie Court that such writing was not .evidence of an agreed balance was e?roneous; and that evidence to that effect was improperly rejected; that the verdict was against the weight of evidence; and that a material witness for the defendant was absent from the trial, de fendant not being aware that this witness (Frederick Gurney) was present when the agreed balance was arrived at between the parties, and could depose to what took plaee then, although he. knew nothing farther of the matter. Mr Benham replied that tbe only thing in support of the application was an affidavit by Mr Palmer himself, who did riot therein allege th...

THE KAPTTNDA HERALD. Friday, May 24^th, 1867. CORPORATION CLAIMS FOR A GOVEENMENT GRAJST. It is the intention of the Corporation to once more renew their applications to tbe Government for a grant-in-aid for: the I purpose of carrying out the proposed im provements at the dam, and other neces sary works in the township of Kapunda; and considering' the bond, jide nature of their claims, and the evident injustice which the town has suffered at the hands of previous Ministries, we hope the present Government may be more favourably; dis posed towards us, and grant that which, as a matter of right, should long ago have been conceded. ' It is very difficult to conceive on what grounds a Government which saw the wisdom of making provisions for the re quirements of not only Wallaroo, but also j of Port Augusta in reference to the ques- | tion of an adequate water supply, could | adopt an entirely opposite course of action j with respect to Kapunda. Unless it was because they possessed the s...

OPENING OF THE NEW BAPTIST CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 31 May 1867
OPENING OF THE NEW BAPTIST CHAPEL. We would resume our account of these servicee by stating that at the close of the meeting of the Baptist Association, of which we gave a brief report in our last issue, the friends ad journed to the schoolrom beneath, which was very profusely decorated for the occasion, and in which the tables were set with an elegant cold collation, such as reflected the greatest credit on ; the liberality of those by whom it had been pro vided, and on the good taste and skill of Mr. Barnes, who had taken the entire charge of the commissariat department. We should imagine that the number who sat down to the collation was from 120 to 140. In the afternoon the chapel was well-filled, oil which occasion an excellent sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr Price, of Alberton. At the close of the afternoon service the com pany again retired to the school-room to par take of tea, where they were speedily joined by so large a number of friends that the room was literally cram...
KOORINGA. May 29, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 31 May 1867
KUOKIWGA^ J fFrom our own Correspondent.J Mav 29,1867 It would be almost superfluous to inform your readers when rain lias been so general through out the Colony, that we have received our .fair uantity in this District. The Queen's Birthday was regarded and kept as a holiday, but people, in consequence of the weather, were for the most part compelled to spend it indoors. The Ker. Mr Patchell, of Moonta, has preached several sermons, and delivered a lecture at Koo ringa and vicinity in behalf of the Wesleyan Mis sion Society. The Princess Royal Mine is looking very well, and it only requires capital, it is said, to develop and make it a payable concern. People here are all much interested in railway extension, and it is the principle topic of conver sation. Business, from well-known causes, is very dull, and not likely to improve as things are at present constituted.
RECHABITE ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 31 May 1867
RECHABITE ANNIVERSARY. On Friday last the Salem Tent of the Inde pendent Order of Rechabites celebrated their fourth anniversary by a dinner and public meet ing. About 2.30 the brethren, to aboat the number of thirty, inarched in procession through the town, and thence to the Bible Christian Chapel, where they were addressed in a very earnest manner by the Rev. Mr Hancock from the first four verses of the third chapter of Matthew. At 4.30 a dinner was laid out in the Schoolroom, where ninety-two of the brethren, with their wives and Mends, sat down. The dinner was of first-class description, and the arrangements for the comfort of all (though a far larger number sat down than was anticipated) were complete, reflecting great credit on those officers and brethren of the Tent who had the management. After the good things had been disposed of in a manner which showed that no stimulant was required in the shape of strong drink to whet the appetite, a public meeting was held in the Bible ...

RIVERTON. ("From OUT own Correspondent.] May 29, 1867. Our township has of late assumed quite a cui ferent aspect, the Central Road Board having at last taken the wants of the neighbourhood into consideration, and are now making their first piece of road in the district. The contract is let to Messrs. Macnamara & Tivor, to whom great praise is due for the energetic way they are push ing the works forward. The new Court House is nearly completed, and is a great ornament to the town. On the 24th instant there was a bazaar held at the Riverton Hotel, Mr A. Xing officiating as auctioneer; after which there was a tea meeting j in the new school-room, where, in spite of the in- I clemency of the weather, a large number sat down to the good things provided for them. The tables were presided over by Mesdames Swindon,; Bathurst, Cowen, and Evans. After tea, a soiree was held in Mr Bollenhagen's wheat store. R.

THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, May 31 st, 1867. THE WALLAROO AND CLARE TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 31 May 1867
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, May 31 st, 1867. THE WALLAROO AND CLARE TRAMWAY. We commend to the notice of our readers a letter appearing on this subject in another column from " An Old Rail way Secretary," as an admirable statement of the cons in a case of which so far only the pros have been heard, and which it requires some degree of moral courage to even hint at, when the scheme opposed is such a popular one. There can be no doubt but that certain plausible-looking schemes are readily adopted by legislators and public men in general, when supported by public opinion, without staying to con sider the question with which our corre spondent has headed his letter, at least so far as the general interest of the Colony is concerned. The question of railway extension is one which demands careful consideration at the hands of the colonists generally ; one of the first objects to be effected, how ever, being the rendering remunerative those already constructed by reducing the working expen...
AUBURN. Wednesday, May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 31 May 1867
AUBURN. ["From our own Correspondent, j Wednesday, May 29. The Queen's Birthday was a very quiet day in Auburn; the only thing that seemed to rouse the inhabitants out of their slumber was several reports from a cannon, at 12 o'clock, fired by a person who served for some time under General Garibaldi, and who evidently wanted ta show 1 that he was indeed a loyal subject. | Mr Macnamara's contract is about finished, j and I must certainly correct a statement made in a previous letter, sayiog the contract when finished would be such an improvement. I think the contrary now, as the road is anything but safe on a dark night. The bridge at present is very unsafe, and will be until it is made the width of the road, or a couple of lights placed on the bridge to show how it stands. I think the Central Road Board ought to use a little more judgment and not allow the stones to be broken on what I would call the footpaths in our main street, and not only broken there, but to remain some time b...

CORRESPONDENCE. KAPUNDA AND THE TRAMWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. " Cut Bono?" Sir-Aa it is becoming apparent with those of us who are familiar with railway subjects, that Kapunda, her interests, and her rights are likely to be somewhat seriously affected by the impe tuous aud equally inconsiderate tramway schemes about to be forced upon a Government suddenly called upon to inherit an unprece dented collection of embarrassments, with * falling revenue and a closing session of Parlia ment-I venture to call attention to the subject as follows: Those of us who have been connected with the railways, and studious of all that relates to since the opening of the Manchester and Liver pool lioe, and who have not had to acquire our ideas about them during the 'prentice days of a young community-know that without two in dispensable requisites no rail or tramway ever did or can pay, namely-passengers' fares and inter mediate traffic. A line of a single stage, such as those con necting mines, collieries,...
