 Sir Charles Bagot
He arrived in Kingston, then the temporary capital of Canada, on January 10, 1842 ; and he administered the government under the strain of rapidly failing health, until the arrival of his successor, Sir Charles Metcalfe, on March 30, 1843.
Lord Sydenham, his predecessor, had declined to accept the principle of responsible government in Canada, but had set up the machinery of responsible government,—that is, a cabinet of ministers sitting in the legislature—except that he acted as his own prime minister, and himself presided at the meetings of council.
His action caused consternation in England, and incurred the displeasure of both Queen Victoria and the Duke of Wellington; his policy was virtually repudiated by his successor, Sir Charles Metcalfe; and it was not until the arrival of the Earl of Elgin in 1848 that his policy triumphed.

 Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online
This “great measure,” as Bagot termed it, compromised two major aspects of imperial policy, anglicization of the Canadians and maintenance of the method of governing used by Lord Sydenham [Thomson], the latter involving rule by the governor with the support of a non-party executive and a non-party majority in the House of Assembly.
On the one hand, he concluded that the Canadians had been justifiably aggrieved at their exclusion from office and that Bagot’s remedying of this evil was the chief of the “very beneficial effects” of his administration.

 Kapunda & Light Tourism - kapunda
The name 'Kapunda' is believed to have derived from the phrase "Cappie Oonda" - an aboriginal expression for 'water jumping out' - which probably related to the fact that the town has a number of natural springs throughout its creeks, the River Light and land area.
Kapunda was the first commercial copper mining town in South Australia, soon after Charles Bagot discovered copper ore on the surface of grazing pastures in 1842.
Commercial mining began in 1844 and continued until 1878 when world copper prices fell and rising water at the mine diggings became a problem.

During the first three or four years he spoke little, but devoted himself with assiduity to mastering parliamentary forms and the business of the house.
