To the Editor of the Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
To tie Editor vftie Record . Sib— I should not have taken any notice of a letter signed 'Peace,1*, in your issue of last week, had it not been that the reputation of my house otherwise than locally was at stake. Persons who have the least common cense on reading tbe letter would say *h«* the statemeiu of 'Peace' as to distinctly hearing singing and swearing one hundred yards distant, was la use tba mildest term, false. 'Peace,** like every citizen, has his remedy ^ and if I break -the Jaws of the land it is bis duly to try and prevent me from so doing, but he ahould come forward like a: man who is not ashamed of- bis name, instead of which be casts reflections' not only on the good name of my house, but also on the character and repu tation of the policeman who resides close by. Youra truly, J. RICHARDSON. [We ware obliged to omit aome portions of this letter, but gladly publish the remainder so that both sides may He heard.— Ed ]

THE EDUCATION QUESTION. To the Editor of the Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
THE EDUCATION QUESTION. 2b tteWitor cf the Record. Sib— It has. been Contended of late years. that any system ofT-national education should be founded on the three principles of free sooular and compnlsdrv — free because a man should not be compelled to pay for what he does not wish to jbave — secular that the con sciences of none be ofiended, and compulsory that all jmaypaxtaks of the rich gift- whether they vtlueitorng$« This colony has etarted a Byatem which is not free, which contains a modification of secularism, and compulsion delayed. Confining myself to the. two principles ofveeeolar and- compulsory, and looking at €he* w&aer froin a. Boman Catholic ' or Episcopal point of view, it 'becomes ttbvious that they are antagonistic and- cannot be mftf3-- to work harmoniously. .The ffonrtn Catholic values secular education highly but religious education iiuok more highly t the Episco palian values 'eecular education and con siders religion an imii«p«nffiifr*Q adionct.

Power of Bearing Extreme Heat. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
Power of Bearing Fxtreme Heat. The writer remembers a ter rible storypublished many years ago of a fire at a brewery. The n-iT-i^ifnv f.rvinor tt» fiSPii.lifi. Had uo alternative but to jump into a copper vat, at the bottom of which was a little heap of brick and mortar rubbish, on which he stood. The vat became red hot around him, and yet he was rescued without having sustain ed any material injury beyond the fright. Many facts similar to this are recorded by Sir Diivid Brewster in his *' Let ters on Natural Magic.' The best known of these incidents are the experiments made by M. Tillet, in France, and by Dr. Fordyce, and Sir Charles lilagden, in England. These gentlemen went into a room, the heat of which exceeded 260 degrees, and though Sir Charles JMagden's pulse rose to 144 W.ts, or double its ordinary q iekuess, no harm ensued. In viiier to prove that there was uo mistake as to the degree of heat endured, several steaks were cooked and eggs roasted in the same place. Messrs. D...

Under the Verandah. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
Under the Verandah. "whayever men do, or think, or seem, Our motley paper seizes for its theme." [from JUVENAL.] It was, no doubt from purely philanthropic motives, that the Captain of the "Leota" took &nbsp; his cargo of coats to the Society Islands. The owners, however, having intended it to go to Shanghae are not so well satisfied. It does not auger well for the Captain that there should be found sugar holes &nbsp; &nbsp; in the vessel and though he ran her on a whole island, the owners an absurd enough to think that he had not sufficient ground for his action. It is satisfactory to find, that, though unable, from the circumstances of the case, to get his vessel into dock, this gentleman will shortly appear in dock himself. A member of the House of Assembly stated that there waa a railway in England which had never had a refreshment room or an accident. It is indeed a pity that he could not remember the name of the line because any director who could be so...

Inquest at Leighton. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
Inquest at Leighton. An Inquest was held at Leighton, on July 22nd, before Mr. J. D. Cave, J.P. on the body of Robert Everest, a boundary rider who was found drowned the previous day. Mr. B. Giles was foreman of the Jury. James Burden deposed— I am a storekeeper living at Leighton, I knew deceased, and saw him last alive on 19th about 10 a.m. when he was in my store for about half an hour. He was a little the worse for liquor, but could get on and off his horse well enough. I saw his body in Farrell's Creek in the reeds about three quarters of a mile below the crossing at 4 p.m. on the 21st. Philip Taylor deposed—I am a farmer living near the residence of the deceased, I knew him and identify his body I was about half a mile from the crcossing of Farrell's Creek, on Friday 19th, at about 10.45 a.m., and saw someone on &nbsp; horseback riding down the road to the crossing. I got my telescope to see whether he would attempt to cross which I considered dangerous, &nbsp;...
Burra Corporation and Public Works. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
Burra Corporation and Public Works. An advertisement appears in another column which we consider of sufficient importance to be made the subject of a leading article. We refer to the one calling together the ratepayers to autho rize a loan, to enable the Corporation to do certain works. A visitor to the Burra, having heard of its world wide renown, and knowing the length of time that has elapsed since first it be came a township; but not at the same &nbsp; time being aware of the difficulties that have surrounded and obstructed its pro gress, naturally wonders at its primitive condition, as regards roads, footpaths, &c. For many years the policy of the Mining Association to lease rather than sell allotments, prevented advance ; to the same cause of uncertain tenure, and mistrust on the part of lessees of their landlords, must be attributed the dis tance of the railway terminus from the business portion of the town. Since the establishment of the Corporation, other ca...
The Rabbit Question. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
The Rabbit Question. Few subjects are of more importance &nbsp; to the inhabitants of this and the sur- rounding districts than the extermina- tion of rabbits. Some years since land- holders fostered them, and persons who now would give hundreds of pounds to free themselves from the pest then let them loose in the most favourable spots, and carefully guarded them from harm. They, however, breed with such incon- ceivable rapidity, and have spread over so huge an area of country as to be a most costly plague, and tens of thousand of sheep have their place supplied by these useless animals, which in the harvest season, after having devoured all the feed on the hills, descend into the corn fields and make havoc and spoiliation where otherwise ''harvest home" would make glad the toiler. Various schemes have been advocated to rid the country of this enemy to pro- fit, the system of rates has been tried, and as one person remarked in our hearing to-day, "they are like flies, kill &...
The Week's Parliament [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878
The Week's Parliament. The Legislative Council has so far given way so that Mr. Fisher's amendment was with- drawn, and it was decided to be a proper thing to erect new houses of Parliament, provided that the question of site had been first sub- mitted to both chambers. They sat twice this week, and the most important business, transacted relates to Forest Trees Bill and Copyright Bill which advanced somewhat and the Rabbit Bill which passed its second reading and was taken into Committee where it will be further considered on Tuesday next. The Lower House agreed to the report of the Committee on the Hallatt and Terowie Railway Bill, which has now virtually passed this House. The Real Property Bill was again dismissed and there was the usual dis- &nbsp; agreement between the various lawyers who had the debate nearly in their own hands There is no doubt but that the Act requires amending, but we certainly think that a con- solidated measure would best effect this pur- pose, a...
