OPENING OF THE NEW GAWLER WEST FOOT-BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 February 1864

OPENING OF THE NEW GAWLEtt WEST FOOT-BEIDGE. TitE heading of the present article may excite a smile among those who arc not aware that the Gawler people hare as great a dislike to doing things by halves, as some people and places have to doing them at all. Besides, it is quite possible that the opening of a bridge which cost 5,0002. -may be & very every-day hum-drum affair, while the opening of a 50/. bridge may . have incidents, and interest, and architectural novelty connected with it that may throw the lormer into tno suaoe; as wo naro seen wo launch of a patent life-boat excite more interest than that of a frigate of 1,000 tons. The South River runs (as some of our readers know to their' cost) fast and furious after heavy winter floods, when planks without hand rails 'form a very insecure mode of crossing it, And no wonder that during the last three winters accidents occurred; or that they reached the verge of. a coroner's inquest on the 9th August last, when Miss Mitche...

Now the Governor's first act of power' was1 to organize a regiment of spies; and he selected - dose whose countenances partook of the ex pression of sanctiflcation. and he taught them the manner whereby secret information is acquired, and sent them among the people to gather intelligence. And it came to pass that the spy-regiment adopted the measures of Grey, . the Sanctified *and ingratiated themselves into the confidence of the unwary, by wheedling measures, that deceived the unprepared, and thereby obtained, from one an account of the wealth of his neighbour, with w...

THE BUNYIP'S REFLECTIONS ON MR. HAMILTON'S LATE PHRENOLOGICAL LECTURES: When a Lady is deficient m weight, does it make her light-headed ?   When a person's head is filed with music, what instrument is inside? An Organ, of course.   When was the Lecturer like a boatman ? When he handled the skulls. Why did the Lecturer resemble a sexton? Because he had a skull in his hand, Mold by his side, and a grave subject to deal with. What is the difference between an English   gentleman, and an Adelaide exporter? One keeps his port in a cellar, and the other his   sellers in the port. Oh ! The contributor who   sent, us the above, is we have ascertained suffering from the horror. We hope our readers won't take them too. "What's become of the mail,'' I wonder, said one of our imps to his brother, 'Don't know, perhaps the whale's swallowed it ' ' Nonsense Tom, that's impossible." Nothing of the sort.

A FEW PRACTICAL HINTS. Adelaide, Feb., 1864. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 March 1864

A FEW PRACTICAL HINTSi Adelaide, Feb., 1864. Sir,— Anonymous correspondence is in most cases unjustifiable, because it is generally made the vehicle for traducing, secretly and without fear of detection, those whose happiness and success' are obnoxious to the slanderer, who* dare not do openly what he can da with impunity anonvmously. Although this is an indis putable fact, and one which is to be verified in the history of many a broken SDirited heart-crashed- being*, there are. I submit, cases-in which letters not bearing the name of the writer may prove more useful and less unpleasant than the ordin ary method of epistolary correspondence. If we view man simply as an animal, without reference- to his' spiritual nature (ordinarily designated soul); his physical organization is vastly superior- to that of the Kangaroo Rat Wow by die process of ratiocination inculcated by those names of by-gone days, the daww of whose genius lit up with more than pristine glorj a benighted: world (I ...

WILLIAMST0WN. . Feb 28th, 1864. A.LL the works mentioned in my last com munication are progressing favorably. The shares in the WHliamstown branch of the Great Northern Railway are rising steadily as the line goes on j some shares changed hands a few days ago at a price that 1 will not venture to name, lest I be thought to exceed the bounds of truth. As might have been expected, the amount of grain, principally wheat, passing through this tnwnshin has been enormous, it has been obliged to go on to Gawler, as every avail able inch of room here has been taken up with it. The traffic has been so great that some of the principle streets have been rendered temporarily impassable by the vehicles, getting locked, and so forming barriers across the streets. Horses are at premium, and large herds are being daily driven in from the north to supply the constantly increasing demand. The market was thinly stocked with mutton, owing to the sheep at present on the home stations having been nearly ...
