OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, June 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 11 June 1878
OUR CITY LETTER. fFrom our own CoiTespondeiit.j Adelaide, June 10, 1878. We hare experienced a disappointmont this morning. The telegraph operator at Cape Borda wired to Adelaide that a large Teasel supposed to be the steamer Cuzco passed Cape Borda at twenty minutes before 2 o'clock this morning during squalls of rai -and thick misty weather. No signal appeared at the West-terrace flagstaff as was expected, and as two large vessels from London, the 1 Argonaut and the Beltana, came in during the day it was supposed that one of them was mistaken for the Cuzco, which is now six . dsjg overdue. A shocking accident occurred at Edithburgh j •n Friday, by whieh a young man, George i Bramfield Koberte, lost his life. He was out j shooting with some friends, who had a j kuggJ with them, and one named Foster, in getting into the trap with his gun in his hand at half cock, accidentally slipped, and the gun striking the trap exploded lodging the eon teats in the breast of poor RobertB who was ...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 11 June 1878
TO THE EDITOB. Sir—On belialf of the residents of Greenock I wish to say a few words in support of the character which has so long been awarded them on account of the respectful manner in which they have conducted themselves at the -various meetings (political and otherwise) ^which have been held in this township. Well, Sir, I am very sorry that at tbe political meeting held in this township on Friday night the character I have before spoken of has -been disgraced to a certain extent—not, I am happy to say, by the residents of Greenock, but by the aristocrats (if I can with propriety term them such) of Kapunda. The conduct exhibited on that occasion by our present members of Parliament descended to the level of that of the veriest ragamuffins. I will not detail the many disgraceful acts of ■fee evening, but regret sincerely that we are not represented by men of a more exalted turn of mind—by men with whom we can associate to forward the interests of our adopted country without havin...

CORRESPONDENCE. tit most be -understood that wo do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents under this ieadin?. THE INSPECTOR. : TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Allow me space in your columns. Having read the Herald of June 4, and find ing therein a letter written by a ratepayer concerning Inspector Wheare with regard to electioneering, and calling upon the Council to see into it, but ft eeems they have not as yet done so. It seemB to me that the Inspec tor is getting above his business and allowed by ths Council to do as he likes. I "would ask, Mr. Editor, who is paid for the Inspector ship. I thought he -was well paid for doing Ms work, but it seems not whilst electioneer ing is going on. If our Inspector is above doing his duty, he should at once resign, and it would enable as to get a man that would do his duty properly for half the money. I would ask the ratepayers to look into this, riand call an indignation meeting and throw a vote of no-confidence on the Councillors who are...

Meeting at Geeekock. On Friday evening a large meeting of elec tors was held at Sehluter's Hotel, Mr. James Hennessy being voted to the chair. At the request of the meeting Mr. Sobels acted as interpreter. The Chairman briefly introduced the candidates. Mr. D. Moody, who was well received, said he labored under the disadvantage of not being well, and he would ask them to excuse "hie necessarily brief speech. He then proceeded as at previous meetings, to review the landing topics of the day—reform of Legislative Council, the working of the Land Act (which I had the effect of putting too much of the land in the hands of speculators), tenure of leases, harbor accommodation, immigration, law reform, taxation, railway extension, Victor Harbor scheme, compulsory rabbit de struceion, and education—free and compul sory. If returned he did not expect to take a distinguished place in the House, but he would work well and earnestly, and doubted not he would make his influence felt inside the H...

A SOLDIER'S VOYAGETO INDIA DURING THE MUTINY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 June 1878
A SOLDI EE'S VOYAGETO INDIA DURDfGr THE MUTINY. At. the beginning of the Indian mutiny the numerical strength of the British army in India was very small. The consequence ■jvas that large bounties were offered to induce recruits to join the army at home, and thou sands responded to the call. The recruits were hurried away half-drilled, to join their respective regiments in India which were de cimated by the Sepoy hordes under Nana Sahib, but worse than that by sunstroke, lieat, apoplexy, and brain fever, for forced inarches in the day-time with the thermometer pt 150° Fahrenheit killei far more than the Sepoys, and every eneamping-ground in Bengal has a stone or board recording many deaths which occurred there not eausedby ball or bayonet I filiated in October, 1857, and was drilled for about three months at Chatham—morn, noon, and eve—and then with my dep6t was sent to Walmer; but a few days after a draft was ordered to join the regiment, and I formed one of them- I well remember t...
GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] June 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 June 1878
GAWLEB. PTrom our own Correspondent.] .Tune 10. 1878. After the long spell of fine weather we hare been favored with a splendid fall of rain. It been showery during the week, but yesterday it commenced in real earnest, and poured from about 7 o'cloak a.m. till past mid day, and from appearances it seemed to be general. We had a visit from jour footballers on Saturday; the GawlerClub were, however, too good for them, scoring eight goals to nil. I have seen Kapunda very much better repre sented. Davies and Lewis played here for two sights, Friday and Saturday, to very poor houses—-the reverse of what they deserved. We have had a case of forgery here this week. A young girl, named Page, forged the Damp of the ln»l mistress of the public school, Miss Johnson, for £2 10s. She was committed for trial at the next Supreme Sittings, Our worthy and respected townsman, Mr. James Dawson, intends taking a trip to the old country shortly. I am sure he will have the best wishes of the townspeople ...
DUTTON TOWN. [From our own Correspondent.] June 8, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 14 June 1878
DUTTOjNT TOWN. P?iom our own Correspondent.] June 8, 1878. The continued dry weather was causing the grass to assume a yellow tinge, but on Thurs day night the welcome rain putin appearance, and since then we hare had some splendid showers which will be especially beneficial to the late gown wheat. On Friday evening a building occupied by our shoemaker, Mr. Zinkler, as a workshop, was partially destroyed by fire.- By some ■mfwriR the roof, which id composed of straw, became ignited and was soon in a strong blaze. An. alarm was given, and Mr. Zinkler, who had been away for a short time, succeeded in removing his stock and tools just as the fire got through the roof. A number of willing hands 600-3 collected and after about an hour's bard work the fire was got under. There does not seem to be much interest evinced in the forthcoming election about here, and unless the candidates show some activity in stirring up the electors, I am afraid there will not be many votes recorded here.

WOODCHESTER. [From our own Correspondent.] I June 7,1878. i Since I last wrote to you we have had some very diy weather liere — so] much so that many farmers had to leave off ploughing, whilst others had to change from the double furrow to the single-furrow plough. But during the last few days we have had a nice fall of rain, which will do a great deal of good to the seed already sown. The farmers here expect to complete seeding operations next week. We have had two or three severe frosts lately
