COMMERCIAL. Adelaide, July 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 July 1878
COMMERCIAL. Adelaide, July 10, 1878. The Wheat and Hour market lias been in a very dull state for some time, and very few transactions have taken place. Shipments were only occasionally required for the South African or English market, and the induce ments they offered, especially the latter, were not such as to warrant speculators giving the prices asked by holders. Quotations for several weeks hare been little better than nominal, as the market has been very inactive. Prices have during the last few days dropped considerably, Town flour has been sold at £1112s. 6d.; and 5s. per bushel is the highest | price obtainable for wheat on board ship at Port Adelaide. The tendency owing to advices from England is still downward, and those who shipped at high freights early in the season must lose heavily. " Kapunda Herald" Office, July 11,1878.

EXLKEBEAN. rFrom our own Correspondent.] July 9, 1878. tsui.ee my iaet -vre hare iiad almost a con tinuance of dry weather, so that the farmers are again anxiously awaiting a steady son king rain for the nourishment and sustenance of tlie young crop, which at present is promising all that could be desired. There is very little of importance occurring in this quiet place. The farmers are mostly busy making tanks and dams to increase their, water supply for the coming summer. Grreat hardships were experienced in this respect last year, the laborious work of hauling water from Port Pearce being a great drawback to the settlers last summer during the harvest months, so they are determined to avert this difficulty for the coming season. The selectors in our Hundred and the ad joining ones are speaking in veiy strong terms against the Commissioner of Crown Lands in reference to his remarks in Parliament upon the extension of time for die next instalment of interest on their land selection...

MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.} July 6, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 July 1878
MELBOUBKE. [From our own Correspondent.} July 6, 1878. I do not often indulge myself in the amusement of spinning yarns, and so you need not grumble if I on this occasion open and close my letter •with, a specimen or two j of the genus. Yarn Ifo. 1 is relative to a j country storekeeper who finding himself in j difficulties was obliged to call his ci-editors ; together, which he did by means of postal cards (thereby evincing his saving disposition) as follows:—" Be pleased to attend a meeting of my creditors," &e. Now, if he had been going to pay Ms creditors 30s. for every 20s. ! he owed he might naturally have expected they would have been pleased, but inasmuch as he was only able to pay about 7s. 6d. out of 20s. the style of his postal summons was only adding insult to injury. Ju6t as if any one could be pleased on getting paid at the rate of 7s. Gd. in the pound. This, however, is not the best of the joke, for on the meet ing taking place the debtor could only account fo...
AUBURN. [From a Correspondent.] July 12,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 July 1878
AUBURN. [From a Correspondent.] July 12,1878. Business in general is not very brisk here fit present, but now that the farmers have finished sowing, I expect a change for the better will take place. We have liad a very good season bo far, and most of the young crops in this district look very promising. Petitions to both Houses of Parliament are being numerously signed here, asking for a railway, via Auburn, to Clare. I am sorry to eee that two at least of your members are opposed to it; but if the people along the proposed route will adopt the motto " one and all," they will no doubt get it. At last tenders have been accepted for re pairing our Schoolroom. It is to be hoped that the contractor will commence operations at once, as at present the school is in a dis graceful state. A Football Club has been started here, but it does not seem to go ahead, only two or three taking any interest in it. I notice that the Eapunda Club is not making a very good ehow this season. How is this ?...
NORTH-WEST BEND. [From our own Correspondent.] July 13. 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 July 1878
NOBTH-WEST BEOT. [From our own Correspondent.] July 13. 1878. So much has been said and written about the magical effects of railways in. all countries where they hare been introduced that I need not refer to their effects generally, but if any one doubted the advisability of carrying a railway to this place just let them pay us a visit. Twelve months ago the tranquil valley of the beautiful Murray was only disturbed by an occasional steamer on its waters or a stockman on its banks, but what a change has taken place in the last twelve months. Hem is a railway that will open up one of the finest agricultural districts in South Australia* It is already known that the town site of Morgan has been sold, and its choice blocks brought more per acre than 1,000 acres would have brought without a railway. X fully believe what I heard a gentleman say th& other day, that if there is not a ton of goods sent by the railway that comes dawn the river the investment will still have been a g...
The kapunda herald. TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1878. MR. BRIGHT'S MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 July 1878
Cfie HajwitUa f^eraHr* TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1878. MR. BBIGHT'S MOTION. As already indicated, Mr. Bright's motion for deferring the works autho rized by the late Parliament to be con structed at Victor Harbor has our warmest support, and that not on any merely local considerations, but on the broadestpossible grounds—namely, the best interests of the colony at large. At the same time we confess that there is an important principle involved in the question as to how far it is right for any one Parliament to directly reverse the action taken by its predecessors—but when one comes to examine into the subject it is ap parent that it is done every session. The same question cannot be con sidered more than once in any one session, but it is a common practice both in our own and the Imperial Parliament, to bringincertainmeasures session after session; and it frequently happens that the measure thrown out one session during passed by the next; and if Parliament is justified in thus rendering nu...

OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, July 15, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 July 1878
QUE CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, July 15,1878. The large number or shares in tile Uom mercial Bank applied for bj the residents in tlie country naturally leads to the supposition that our country cousins are possessed of a modicum of the currency of the Colony to enable them to invest in joint-stock companies offering a reasonable prospect of returning fair interest for their money. It may, there fore not be out of place to notice the annual report of the Adelaide Marine and Eire In surance Company just issued. The report is of a very satisfactory nature, showing a credit balance of £14,068 17s. on the year after pro viding for all known losses. The sum of £7,000 is placed to the Beserve Fund, which now amounts to £20,000. A dividend of Is. 6&. per share for the half year is proposed to be paid which will absorb £1,912 10s., leaving £9,170 18s. lid. to provide for current risks on which the premiums amount to £6,925 7s. 8d.
