The Reefs. (From a Correspondent.) Shackle, July 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

The Reefs. {From a Correspondent.) Shackle, July 22. A few remarks from an up-country resident upon the progress and position of affairs generally may pos- sibly be acceptable to your readers. Having visited the principal lo- calities of repute, or in which any work is being- carried on. I can now testify to the satisfactory position of affairs south of the Shackle. All claims on the telegraph line at Pine Creek that are at work are looking well, and I have every confidence in the ultimate results proving satis- factory. The Royal Standard battery is about sufficiently completed to per- form a trial crushing- from the said claims, and from the prospects ob- tainable at the surface I believe the trial crushing will produce an en- couraging return. . Unfortunately water is very scarce, and crushing operations will shortly be suspended. The Union and Lady Alice reefs, so far as prospecting- has been carried, surpass everything- yet discovered in the Northern Territory, and will work th...

Union Reef. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

Union Beef. (From a Correspondent.) There has been another rush to the Union, but not by the " Palmerston Jumping- Company." This time it has been bona fide visitors and parties interested in getting- public batteries, for crushing- erected here, water or business sites peg-ged, and for invest- ments or securing- of claims ; for an inspection of the Union and Lady Alice reefs soon convinces even the sceptical that there are good payable reefs in the Northern Territory after all that has been said to the contrary, and these are some of them, and the richest yet opened up. But the mis- management and extravagance of the Adelaide Directors and Managers placed by them in charge of former discoveries, has taught us a lesson, and but few holders of good claims would now be fools enough to be bit by the old system of so many paid-up promoters shares, to hand over their claims to be gambled for by such share-jobbing-, bungling-, and, in some instances, unprincipled parties as the Adelaide D...

Pearl Fishing. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

Pearl Fishing. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-A few days ago the arrival of the pearling schooner, Northern Light, with a large crew of efficient divers, was hailed with delight by all who have the interest of the Northern Territory at heart. At last our harbor was to be thoroughly prospected, and if success attended the prospectors, we soon were to see in our waters a fleet of smnll vessels plying a trade that would be a source of great profit both to themselves and the Northern Territory at large. But vanitns vnni tatum ! we counted without our vigi- lant government, who impressed with the necessity of smothering- at once a new and profitable industry, informed Captain Black of the Northern Light through the Resident's Secretary that he was not to think of prosecuting his proposed search without a licence and permission from the Government Resident, enforcing- his caution with the somewhat uncourteous hint that a capacious and well-ventilated cell in tiie new goal was ready to correct the Cap...

Up-Country Jottings. (From our own Correspondent.) Sandy Creek, July 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

Up-Country Jottings. (From our own Correspondent.) Sandy Creek, July 26. A jumping case was heard here «on Friday last before Acting Warden Melville. From the evidence ad- duced it appears that Messrs. Poison and Nash seeing a piece of ground which was not occupied proceeded to peg it out. They first ascertained where the other boundary pegs were, and then went to get some pegs. While they were gone Mr. Mackie made his appearance and pegged the ¿round. The others claimed the ground, and put their pegs inside Mackie's, so die Warden was called to settle the case, and he ruled that as Mackie's pegs were in first he was entitled to the ground. Messrs. , Poison and Nash gave notice of * appeal on the ground that Mackie had not pegged the ground properly. The excitement lately caused by the Warden's resignation, closing of the Court, &c, has subsided; ^ although, I believe, a telegram is to forwarded to Adelaide, expressing the diggers' high appreciation of Mr. Framplon's conduct...

Funeral Customs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

Funeral Customs. The late Charles Dickens seems to have had an intolerable aversion to the conventional style and dress at funerals. This is evidenced from the following- extract from his will : "I emphatically direct that I be buried in an inexpensive, unosten- tatious, and strictly private man- ner; that no public announcement be made of the time or place of   my burial; that at the utmost not more than three plain mourning coaches be employed : and those who attend my funeral wear no scarf, cloak bow, long hatband, or other such revolting absurdity." In his essay "On Death and Burial" Leigh Hunt seems also to have been of opinion that our present funeral customs are altogether absurd and anomalous. In suggesting the symbols of affection to be worn in memory of the dear departed, he says : -"In our clothes we might adopt, by means of a ring or watch-ribbon, some cheerful instead of gloomy re- collection of the person we had lost, a favourite color, for instance, or de...

The Near Future of Northern Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

The Near Future of Northern Australia. The durable timber of the old jetty at Port Essington, the varied vegetation indigenous and foreign around that former settlement, the herds of wild cattle, the turtle and trepang on the coast, and the suc- cess which is known to attend regular fishing operations^ there, combine to prove that within about three days' sail from Port Darwin, and thence onward to the east, as far as the Gulf of Carpentaria, where Queensland enterprise meets that which radiates from the Northern Territory of Adelaide, there are the natural materials of future wealth a productive soil and convenient harborage. To those who are attracted to Port Darwin by the goldfields in that part of the coun- try and fail to realise their expec- tations there, other modes of enrich- ing- themselves will be available. Whether fostered by the Govern- ment of the two colonies concerned or not, there can now be no doubt that the natural development of colonial enterprise will in a few...

Quartz Reefs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 August 1874

Quartz Reefs. The yield of two or three ounces of gold to the ton does not seem much to people who have been accustomed to talk about 30 and 40 ounces. But we find from published returns, printed in the Victorian newspapers, that some very large quantities of gold are obtained from crushings where the average yield is not more than a fern pennyweights to the ton.

JJoiithciilt Sçnitorç «times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY,AUGUST 1,1S74. A CORRESPONDENT, who has liad some experience in the formation and working of such bodies as literary Institutes and scientific Associations, has forwarded to us some useful sug- gestions on the possibility ef estab- lishing a Society of this sort in the now growing settlement of . North Australia. It is not always easy to say when is the right or the best moment for entering upon an under- taking of this sort; and therefore in every attempt of the kind there is some danger on the one hand, of beginning too early, and on the other of.waiting too long*. Everybody, we suppose, is more or less familiar with the difficulties which have to be en- countered in makins: a beffinnins; of this sort in new settlements. We have all seen something ot the dingy little "Institutes" of Austra- lian country towns, and of the strug- gling*, but ambitious, Philosophical Societies of colonial cities. But, in spite of this, new efforts wi...
