CLARE. Wednesday, November 6, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 8 November 1867
CLARE. fFrom onr own Correspondent.! Wednesday, November 6,1867. This day weeJl was an eventful day here as well as at most other townships throughout the colony.- Shortly after 5 a.m. the flags were flying, and in the evening bonfires were lighted, and quite a contumouB rumble from innumerable gixnB in honour of the arrival of H- H. H. the Duke of Edinburgh; and numerous parties started off to witness die landing onthe following day. Hay-making is now pretty general, and the appearance of the country is changing greatly. I hear that the red-rust is very prevalent on the Plains, especially on stubble land, doing a large amount of injury, ? r The tune for the races is now rapidly approach ing, and they will, I think, be well worth attend ing, both the prizes and the horses already en tered being very good,, Monday next will be observed as a general holiday here, in lieu of Saturday, the Prince of Wales's Birthday, when, I believe, picnios, and amusements in various forms, are to form...
THE DUKE'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 8 November 1867
THE IHJKE'S VISIT. To describe InUy the demonstrations. which bare taken^lace in honour of ^ the Duke's visit would necessitate the publication of a daily in plage of a,, weekly paper; we must, therefore, content ourselves with briefly chro nicling the most notable events of each day. Fbibav, NOVEMBER 1. The weather on this day was far from being as favourable as. that onthe previous day, for, in place of a beautiful cool freeze, the hot winds put in an appearance, as though they too were anxious to pay. $ visit to our royal guest ; and to the already numerous arrivals in the city were added clouds of dust such as would enable His Royal Highness to form some idea of what a really disagreeable summer's day in this colony jipuat^, v - - . The first event on the' programme of the day was th^-leyee, ..which was attended by great numbers of the colonists, anxious to pay their respects to the Duke, and through him homage to "the Queen, loyalty being the motive power of the many, the desir...

LAYING EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
LAYING EGGS. ?4* an, earlj Pei*j°d young people begin to feel what a loss it would be to the world if they were not to jot down all the wonderful things in heaven and earth of which they have been the privileged spec tators. Like the woman in the parable, cach calls his friends and neighbours to gether, and says to them, " Behold this egg that I have laid." Every volume of youthful poems, every gushing and romantic novel, every young crusader's trumpet peal to alarm or awaken a sleeping race, is in reality nothing more nor less than tbe private and authentic history of an egg. It is the orthodox way of relating sensations so novel and so interesting that we think they can never have happened to any one else except ourselves. Nor is it to be for gotten that it is pre-eminently one of the diseases of genius to see, magnified, as it were, into giant dimensions and projected upon clouds like the shadow of the Brocken, all the little events of life. Beatrice and Frederika might have gone...
THE CORNISHMAN AND THE STARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
THE CORN IS HM AN AND THE STARCH. As a sample of every day lingo at the present time, let me tell you a sad story I heard but yesterday from a respectable old lady of Newlyn, which I will give (as near as I can remember) in Aunt Betty Chynoweth's own words:-"I haven't heard of a worse job for the fair than what happened to me, because I didn't stop up for our Jan. Why, cheeld vaen, I've lost three yards of beautiful lace that I used to wear to my best cap on grand occasions like. Our Jan, you know, went to fair, why shud na (stud he not) poor fellow, have a holiday now and then as well as the gentry all the time ? Yet if some of the sour folks, who think themselves pious fi 'jntry forsooth, could have their will and pleasure, poor Jack would be made a dull boy, 6ure nuf. Our old man used to s^y, and most of his sayings are true, that those who pretend to be so very much better than other people are mostly found out in the long run not to be half so good, however sly they may be.

MOUNT PLEASANT. Wednesday, November 13, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
MOUNT PLEASANT. ["From our own Correspondent.] I Wednesday, November 13,1867. All other events fade into insignificance when compored with the advent of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh. At 5 o'clock on the morning of Ms arrival diverse frantic fanatics took it into their heads to rush about waking their friends and neighbours in order to inform them of this in teresting occurrence; your correspondent certainly did not believe it, and went to sleep again. The next morning all the aristocracy departed for town to be in time for the procession ; and last Wednesday and Thursday all the inhabitants took themselves off towards Adelaide (saving and excepting a few infirm persons and one or two individuals to look after them) thereby killing many birds with few stones, which being inter preted means, that they could visit the Great Show, inspect the Great Ship, and have a peep at the Prince and his retinue. On Saturday our township began to recover from its utter desertion, and is now quite co...
OUR STATUES. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
OUR S1ATUES. An amusing" bookhas been written upon the subject of the signs of taverns and public-Louses, and jhe changes of fashion which they have undergone. The author tells us how the favourite heroes-military, naval, and civil-who dangled on the sign posts in the days/ of our ancestors, have gradually vanished, to be succeeded by other heroes more popular, who, in their turn, have been compelled to descend, and give place to modern favourites. We need not go back very far for instances. It was but the other day that, looking for an old inn in a com.try town, known in other times as " The Marquis of Granby," a famous general of the last century, I dis covered that the marquis's once familiar bald head and military surtout with large lapels had disappeared, and their place be come occupied by a grave-looking military gentleman, in complete modern costume, "who, as I learnt by the inscription beneath, was intended to represent the late lamented General Havelock. The fact was that ...
ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
ARRIVAL OFTHEENGLISH MAIL. The branch steamer with the South Austra lian portion of the English mail arrived at Glenelg on Tuesday eveniig. The intelligence brought is not of a very important nature. The newspaper dates are ttp to September 26, whilst our Adelaide contemporaries have received telegrams up to October 18. The following are extracts from the papers to tand. The Queen was at Balmoral, and the Prince and Princess of Wales were at Wiesbaden, the waters at which place were proving beneficial to the health of the Princess. Some startling revelations had been made in connection with the Manches-.er Brickmakera* Trades Unions, showing the existence of almost as had a state of things there ai in Sheffield. There had been another sensation at Man chester ; a daring rescue of Fenian 'head-centres* from a police-van by a mob of their adherents. A number of shots were fired by the attacking party, one policeman being killed and others wounded. A special commission has been issued ...
THE KAPUNDA HERALD. Friday, November 15th, 1867. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
i THE KAPUNDA HERALD. -.*f_ i .; .. . :. Friday, November 15th, 1867. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. Now that, so far as Kapunda is con cerned, the royal vist is over, it behoves the burgesses of Kapunda to bestow some I share of that attention which for the past ten or twelve days has been devoted to the excitements connected with the visit of royalty* to matters of local import-the selection of true and fitting men to take part in the municipal government of the township for the ensuing* two years, and also of a Mayor for the one year. The Councillors who now retire are those who have had the burden of the day to bear, having held office for nearly two and a half years; and during the former portion of that time devolved upon them and their then colleagues the task of get ting the Council into working order; which is a matter not quite so easy of accom plishment as the uninitiated may imagine. Of the original Council appointed two have passed away from this life, but one of these was sp...

UK DALY A. I | fFrom a Correspondent.] November 12. 1867. The annual examination and picnic of the children attending the Undalya School took place yesterday, the 11th inst.

THE DUKE'S VISIT. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
THE DUKE'S VISIT. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8. This was the day appointed to play the cricket match between eleven of the South Aus tralian Club and eleven of the officers of the Galatea; and as the time advertised drew on for the game to commence, a large number of people were wending their way to the ground. And we must here congratulate the South Aus tralian Club on the improved and .exceedingly cricket-like appearance of their ground, they having had it closely fenced and a spacious although not very artistic grand stand erected at the western corner, capable of accommodating 400 persons;- a special stand., for His Boyal Highness (which, by the way, he never used, preferring to promenade the ground and watch the game from a less elevated position); two or three teats for the accommodation of the players; a large tent for lunching in; and: another booth where " Old Johnny" presided in all his glory, dispensing the liquid comforts to those who were In need. And although, if report speaks t...
CORRESPONDENCE. TRADE HOLIDAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 November 1867
CORRESPONDENCE. TRADE HOLIDAYS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-A short time since the tradesmen of Kapunda agreed to close their respective places of business on certain holidays during the year, and I am happy to say that so far, with one ex ception, they have faithfully kept to their agree ment ; but on Monday last, the birthday of the Prince of Wales's, one of the said holidays so specified, one of our shopkeepers instead of keep* ing this promise by closing his shop, kept open all day, when every other establishment of the kind was closed. Now, sir, I as a tradesman in this town consider such conduct as mean and shabby, and unworthy of the class to which the person allnded to belongs. But I am happy to say there are but very few such amongst us, and that their conduct meets with the contempt it deserves. I am. Sir, &c., TRADESMAN.
