CLARE. Wednesday, July 17, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
CLARE fFrom our own Correspondent,"] Wednesday, July 17,1867. I I have again to report a continuance of windy boisterous weather. Although since Sunday night last we have only had very occasional showers, I think there is more brewing up. . Dr. Carr entertained us on three successive evenings last week, and was very well patronised; the Hall being .comfortably filled on the first night, whilst on the second and third it was crowded. On the first evening Dr. Can- made known the good and bad qualities of half-a-dozen residents in the neighboi'hood, in all of which he was pretty correct. One of those who at first got on the platform retired, but his pkice was speedily filled up. On the second evening I was sorry to hear one of the audience hiss, but this was quickly quieted ; nevertheless I see by your impression of last week that the Clareites received Dr. Carr in a manner inueh more becoming than did the people of Eapunda, where I notice that some two or three in particular were, in ...
MR. ROUNSEVELL AND THE GOODS CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
MR. ROUNSEVELL AND THE GOODS CONTRACT. In the House of Assembly yesterday, Mr. Strang ways' motion to the effect that the position occupied by Mr. J. Rounsevell, as contractor with the Government for the Goods Traffic, came within the meaning of " office of profit under the Government," which by the 17th clause of the Constitu tion Act, disqualifies a Member from re taining his seat, was discussed and, as we had anticipated, carried. Indeed we can not see how any other decision could pos sibly have been arrived at, although yes .terda\7's Register prognosticated otherwise. To us the simple question for the House appeared to be whether or not the con tractor for the Goods Traffic was in the Government service, and whether the office which he filled was one of profit. Now both these queries were answered by the contract itself, which in accordance with Mr. Strangways' previous motion, was laiu before hon. members ; the parties thereto being on the one hand the Commissioner of Public W...
MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. MONDAY, JULY 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. MONDAY, JOLT 15. Present-His Worship the Mayor, Councillors Day, Maclaren, Moyle, Nock, Pearce, Thompson; and the Town Clerk. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. His Worship said Mr Banbury bad attended to recommend that the valuations be proceeded forthwith, as they mu*t be completed before the 1st of September, and he was in a position now to start with the work at once. Mr Banbury stated that the valuation had usually been delayed by the Corporation. He had already completed those for Brighton and Glenelg, and those for Adelaide and Norwood Corporations were in progress. Councillor Thomson moved that the assess ment be proceeded with at onse. Councillor Pearce stated that he would second the motion, having first asked if the present year was included in Mr Banbury's contract. Councillor Thomson asked if they were bound to accept Mr Banbury as Valuator, because he objected to his valuation as far too high; he did not appear to know t...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE CORPORATION DAM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
CORRESPONDENCE. THE CORPORATION DAM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-"Will you permit me through your columns to call the attention of the Corporation and tlie ratepayers to what appears to me a very grave blunder. The Government have liberally agreed to grant the Corporation £1,000 for the construc tion of a dam, or a reservoir of water for the use of the township. Mow, I think there is very little doubt that were that sum carefully and judiciously expended, a very great and a perma nent good may be secured; but what are the facts of the case-a week or ten days since you may have seen a large number of men employed in scraping up the surface (it was little more) near the foot of Cogliill-street, and placing the stuff in the ruts and watercourses ready for the first heavy rains to cany it back again to where it came from. Most fortunately, we have not had any heavy rains since then, or the folly of this course would have been apparent. Since then I find some greater excavations are being made, b...
THE MURRAY TRAMWAY.— MEETING AT BAGOT'S WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
THE MURRAY TRAMWAY. MEETING AT BAGOT'S WELL. A meeting was held at Mr Duell's, Bagot's Well, on Friday evening last,to takeinto conside- I ration the proposed connection of the Northern Railway with the River Murray, by a tramway from Kapunda to the North-West Bend. There was a pretty good attendance, about fifty farmers being present, representing freehold land to the extent of from 20,000 to 25,000 acres. Mr H. Kelly, J.P., was voted to the chair, who on taking that post, announced the object of the object of the meeting; and the presence of many indicated their interest in that object. Is was evident that one good route would have to be speedily opened up, in place of the five or six which now contested the trade. There was a deal of ignorance as to the line of country through which the proposed tramway would pass. In> deed when the Eapunda line was constructed, it was said that it went too close to the Murray Scrub; and Mr Kingston stated that east of the Julia Creek there wa...
AUBURN. April 18, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 19 July 1867
AUBURN. ["From a Correspondent.] April 18, 1897 The interior of St. John's Church is now finished, and I must say the contractor, Mr McLaren, of Kapunda, deserves great praise for the plastering, as also Mr. It. B. Page for the artistic skill displayed in the colouring of the "windows, &c. At present the church is "without a clergyman. I am sorry to have to record the death of a Mr. Hbgan, who met with a severe accident ?while riding from Glare to Mintaro. The accident occurred about a fortnight ago, and the poor man lingered for about a week, when death released Tiim from his pain. We hare had some very cold weather lately. I have seen some very thick pieces of ice, but none so thick as some I saw about this time last year. The main road from Auburn to Clare is in a very bad state; many parts are almost impassable. Our carriers are complaining, as also the drivers ^of the mail, of the wrong idea of commencing to "'nlaKe' new roads in the middle of winter. Several l9ads of w...

GOLDNEN GIFTS. CHAPTES IX. MONOTONT AND ITS RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 July 1867
OOIiDEH GIFTS. BY THE AUTHOR OF " StABEAJT" YEEJIONT TALE ETC.. ETC. CHAPTES "nr.* MONOTONT AND ITS BESULTS. Turves went on with much of tlie usual monotony-one day's J work was very much like another's, for country habits and country employments are at best monotonous ; a friendly call is esteemed as it should be, and affords matter for fresh thought and conversation. Spring, with its sweet-scented breezes, passed away, to he succeeded by the heat and drought of summer, when the grass on every side was parched and dried, and vegetation and culture was only to be kept up by the most careful aud abundant irrigation. Fortunately for the prosperity of the Wallaces, their creek was among the number of their golden gifts," and still yielded them a plentiful supply of water for all purposes. Something of this was due to the forethought of Martin, who put all his energies and wisdom to bear upon the subject, and was rewarded for both labour of bnnri anrl brain by seeing his garden still fl...

The Court had no jurisdiction to make the order. Mr Brady said if the Court had no power to make the order, they certainly had no power to rescind it. His Worship intimated that he could not set aside the order. Order refused, with 10/...

KOORINGrA. fFrom our own Correspondent.} Wednesday, June 24. Business is very dull in this locality, reiy little strring here except electoral matters; and a strong feeling is apparent that Sntheiftmd's Act should be at once repealed, and a more liberal Land Bill introduced. The weather has been splendid, vegetation it flourishing amazingly. A public meeting is to be held to-morrow at the Bnrra Hotel, for the purpose of analyzing the political creeds of the various candidates for the Legislative Council.

HAMILTON SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 July 1867
HAMILTON SCHOOL. On Wednesday, July 17, some little excitement was caused in Hamilton owing to the Trustees of the School at that place having got up a tea meeting and soiree for the benefit of the Building Funds of the Schoolroom, which showed a balance of about £40 on the wrong side of the accounts. The schoolroom being somewhat small for the number of friends expected, Mr. Mugg kindly lent his large wheat store, which was nicely deco rated for the occasion-quite an artistic back ground being formed from a combination of red and blue blankets, painted Venetian-blinds, &c., and altogether the room presented a very pleasing aspect. Unfortunately tlie weather in the the early part of the afternoon was somewhat threatening, but despite of this the good folks of Hamilton aajd the neighbourhood began to assemble in such good force at abour 4 o'clock as to make it evi dent that their sympathies were strongly in favour of education-or tea meetings, we can hardly say which. The tab...
MOUNT PLEASANT. July 23, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 26 July 1867
MOUNT PLEASANT. [From oar own Correspondent.} July 23, 1867.. We have now had the pleasure of hearing Miss Aitken's gifted entertainment three time*; on Friday evening last she bid us farewell. The performance did not however go off bo well as might have been expected, a fact to be chiefly ascribed to the poverty of the musical portion of the evening's programme. The farmers are beginning to think that they may have too mach of a good thing, and instead of, as usnal, praying for rain, they are clamouring for some fine weather. The rains between this and the South Rhine have been excessively heavy, and a great quantity of fencing has been washed away. I must not omit to chronicle the opening of our new Wesleyan Chapel, which is a handsome structure, aud a great addition to the appearance of the township. Our Church of England friends, not to be outdone, are also making great improvements in their building; while our bretheren of the North of Tweed are putting up a handsome manse for ...

VISIT Oj? PKINCE ALFRED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I have taken up the pen to write to you a letter on a most important subject-a subject, sir, no less than the proposed visit of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh to 1 this colony And as he could not by any pos sibility visit the colony without having a peep at this, the northern capital of the Province, I would by your kind permission, try to offer to my fellow-townsmen a few suggestions as to how we ought to receive him, and treat him when here; so that we may make an impression not only on him but also on his royal mother, and prove to them that we Kapundaites are amongst the most loyal and important of her subjects. On its being notified by telepraph that the train conveying the Prince and party has left Adelaide, Tommy Dutton with his bell should be at once set agoing to rouse up the inhabitants so that they may be ready, en masse, to give him a reception at the station; where on the platform -which should be nicely decorated wi...

Hines was elected foreman), on the body of Thomas Bunney, who had been killed on the previous day by the upsetting of a dray. The Jury having viewed the body, the following evi dence was taken i Mr Charles Lutze examined. By the Coroner-Oa the afternoon of the pre vious day was coming from Kapunda, deceased being from ten to fifteen chains ahead of witness in his dray, just entering the fenced road by Duell's, sitting on the frame of the dray, which had two horses-one in the shaft, and the other leading 3 all at once witness saw the horses bolt, but could not see what caused them to . do. so 5 deceased got up and tried to catch hold of some thing, but did not seem able to manage the horses; the leader turned sharp round against the wire fence, and then back again, and directly the Bhaft horse went against the fence the" cart ...
