PETTICOAT KNIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878

PETTICOAT KNIGHTS. It is now perfectly certain that this famous Order of the Garter was, as the legend of the Countess of Salisbury implies, inetituded in honor of the fair sex, and that ladies partici pated in its rights and honors. The Queen consort, the wives and widows of the knights, received permission, by royal sanction, to wear the habit of the Order of the Garter on the feast days of St. George ; and robes were an nually given out to thsm from the royal ward robe, of the same material and color as the surcoats of the knights, and embroidered like them, with numerous small garters and encir cled with the motto: " Hani soil qui trial y peiise." Each lady of the order wore on her left arm a garter similar to that of a knight, was considered a menber, and was stvled L>idy of the Society of St. George. Sir Hams Nic olas states that though nothing ie known of the form or manner of the reception of the ladies, the description applied to them in re cords leaves no doubt of their...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 1878. WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878

Cfje Hapuntja ||naIU. FRIDAY, JUKE 7, 1878. WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S MEETING. The meeting oil "Wednesday night was in one sense a great success—that is as regards numbers. The Hall was thoroughly filled, and there was a dis position to get through the business in an orderly manner, until one elector sought to occupy more time than the meeting thought proper, and an objec tion was raised to another speaker on the ground that he was not an elector. The only candidates who presented themselves were Messrs. Moody and Tennant. Neither of these gentlemen have occupied a prominent position in politics previously, though Mr. Moody has always taken an active part in all election proceedings and in other matters of local interest. Neither of them would be likely to add much to the already excessive talking power in the Assembly, but both are men of good practical common sense, who thougli'not^as yet very well up in their political catechism, could be safely trusted to" use their own judgment in the ...

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, June 6, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878

OUB, CITY LETTER. {"From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, June 6, 1878. "It is either a feast or a famine lately there has been too much of the latter, but now, what with all the interesting items of news stirring, and Parliament in session, the difficulty seems likely to be, not how to find enough to make up a letter, but how to crowd into a reasonable space all that has to be re corded. The Government have, through the Chief Secretary, on the first possible occasion given notice of his intention to introduce a measure of reform in the Constitution of the Upper House. The Chief Secretary will move on Tuesday next " That he have leave to intro duce a Bill for an Act to enable the Govern ment on any dissolution of the House of Assembly to declare vacant the seats of one third of the members of the Legislative Council." This or some other motion which will have the effect of making the Council more amenable to public opinion is very likely to be carried. The speeches in both Houses i...

ANECDOTES OF EAGLES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878

ANECDOTES OP EAGLES. Some of Peter's anecdotes of eagles were really worth notice, as illustrating the strength and ferocity of the bird. A couplej cock and hen, were trapped at the same bait by Robert son. As they were not seriously injured, he wished to bring them home alive. This would have been an impossibility to most people, as there is but one way of carrying them with any degree of safety—it is by placing the enormous creature under your arm, and hold ing his legs, immediately above the huge claws, firmly in your hand. As long as you walk steadily and do not shake him roughly the eagle will remain 6till and make no effort to escape. But if you stumble or turn sharply round, it is ten to one that he fixes his talons to the bone in jour thigh. Robertson was carrying the two birds in this manner, and, having come a long way, hiB arms became i cramped, and he was trying to relieve them by leaning upon a stone dyke, when one of the savage creatures struck its claw into his leg. T...

GREENOCK MEETING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 11 June 1878

GREENOCK MEETING-. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—Allow me to join my protest with that Jthe Chairman of the meeting held in our town' on Friday night last. We have ever given to candidates for Parliamentary honors a fair impartial hearing, and this last meeting would not have been an exception bat for the disgraceful conduct—of whom ?—(X am ash amed to write it, and nothing less than the viodication of our character as residents of Greenock would justify me in mating it pub lic)—of no less personages than our local representatives! I say it witli regret. Poli tical morals must be at a low ebb indeed in ' our district when its Parliamentary members cannot give sufficient force to their partizan Bhip without having recourse to swearing and pugilism. It is refreshing to hear MS.P. lecture on political honesty, and in the fame breath acknowledge themselves guilty of having practised corruption, and with being initiated in itB mysteries—attempting to further the principle of local representation by...

Wf)t 3&apimlia potato. TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 1878. THE ELECTIONS. To morrow the electors have to decide which of the two candidates who have offered themselves is to be returned to fill the vacant seat for the District, and we hope that every elector who can do so will go to the poll and record his vote in accordance with his own judgment, altogether unbiassed by any improper influence of the partizans of either side- As a *ule elections have been conducted in a very orderly manner in this district, and so far as the candidates themselves are concerned this has proved no ex ception to the rule. But we regret to •ay that the last meeting was a dis grace to the district, and that through no fault of the residents of the locality "where it was held, Greenock. And we still further regret to say that the blame is really due to those who should have set a better example— the two members for the district. Mr. White took a most illogical stand at the meeting. He was told by Mr. Tennant ...

HOLIDAY RAMBLES IN TASMANIA AND VICTORIA. VI [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 11 June 1878

HOLIDAY EA3TBLES IN MANIA AM) VICTORIA. NO. VL The day after our visit, to tlie caves we made traces for Launceston, via Deloraine, which very pretty little township we reached, after a pleasant drive of two hours, just in time to catch the midday train to the metro polis. Dtjloraiue bears marks of comparative antiquity, some of its substantial buildings having evidently been erected in the early days of the colony. Like all colonial town ships, it appears to have more than it® fair complement of public-houses. It has also three places of worship—Episcopalian, Wes ley&n, and ltoman Catholic. The population of the town is said to be between 800 and 900, but the rural municipality of the same name includes an area of 376,000 acres, and has a population of 5,000. The railway station is divided from the town by the Uivei? Meander, which is here spanned by a substantial bridge. The nature of the chief trade of the district is indicated by the vast heaps of sawn, and split timber ...

THE ELECTION FOE LIGHT. Meeting at Eudenda. On Thursday at noon a meeting attended by about 30 electors was held at the Royal Hotel, Eudunda, presided over by Mr. W. Hooper, at which Messrs. Moody andTen nant were present as candidates. Mr. D. Moody (who was well received) re peated his views as published at Kapunda, first expressing hie appreciation of the kindly way in which he had been brought forward, and then referring to the reform of the legislative* Council. In respect to the pre sent mode of putting up land, it was wrong. It was really bidding in the dark, people run ning up land they had never seen and did not want to fictitious prices in order to secure a section they needed. He preferred the lottery or tender system. Moreover, no elector should get his title until he had held the land for the term of ten years, and ful t.fiUed the cultivation clauses, and after that he should again have the right of selection. He would keep the lands open for selection three years instea...
