Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, DEC. 5, 1873. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

poi¡thip SPirritorg SPima c3> PALMERSTON: PRlDA\r, DEC, 5, 1873. IT has been decided to inaugurate the New Year with a Regatta, to be held at Port Darwin on the ist January. Horse and foot races used to be the favored pastimes of the ancients, and it was in the middle ages that Venice, then a great maritime Power, first initiated the sport which with many has superseded horse and even foot races. Horse racing, in- deed, has been denounced from the pulpit, and condemned by many for the licence it gives to knaves to entrap the unwary, and the gambling propensities it engenders. But nothing of this can be said of rowing or sailing matches on the " briny." Nearly all towns of any extent situated "by the sea," have their annual competitions, in which yachts, ship's boats, fishing boats, and all kinds of row boats contend for prizes in their re- spective classes. We understand the forthcoming regatta is likely to prove a success. A large and influential Com- mittee has been organized, ...

Extraordinary Case [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

Extraordinary Case Miss Jane Warren, of Cavendish, Square, London, laid an extradinary charge on 6th August, against her page, a lad of 15, named Waller Howard. He is alleged to have obtained from her moneys amounting 10^303 on false pre- tences. The lady, believing that he was afflicted with some mysterious ill- ness, sent him to Sir William Gull, Sir James Paget, and several other doctors, to whom he said he had been recom- mended. The patient, however, had prescribed for himself, and applied the íunds to other purposes. In cross-ex- amination the prosecutrix (who is 65 years old) was obliged to confess to hav- ing granted Howard numerous indul- gences and privileges not usually granted to pages. He was eleven years old when he entered her service. She did not know the prisoner had been to theatres, dances, balls, and music-halls. He had been out two or three nights at diiTercnt times-the doctors were sup poseed to be treating him. The prisoner did as little as he possibly could. ...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

Miscellaneous. A dispatch, dated Louisville, 29th June, in the New York Times says :-" About 2 o'clock this morning a body of masked men entered Salem, Indiana, seized and held prisoners the town patrol-men, and proceeded to the gaol, demanded the keys of Deputy Sheriff Craycroft, who resides in the build- ing. The sheriff refu-ed to give up the keys under any peril, when he was seized and con- fined, and a sledge-hammer procured, with tullich the mob proceeded to force its way into the cell of Delos Hefferen, who mur i/fVd Halstead a few days since. They bi r»ke through the outer door, and then gota foot-stairs leading to the upper story, where Hefferen's cell was situated. The cell had two doors ; the first made of wood, covered with heavy iron plates, the whole being about nine inches thick, and fastened with heavy iron staples and a padlock. This door was soon broken open, and the mob reached the second door, about three feet behind the first. This door was made of inch solid ir...

The Fiji Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

The Fiji Crisis. A telegram via Sydney recently in- formed us of the occurrence of an open rupture between the white settlers of Fiji and the Government. Levuca hies that have since arrived give full particu- lars of the situation, and serve to show the strong feeling which characterises the quarrel upon both sides. The com- plaint of the settlers is clearly stated in the speech of Mr. Forwood, who acted as spokesman for the deputation that waited upon the King immediately after the unpleasantness in connection with Mr. Hideman's bonded store took place. Thakombua was reminded that he pos- sessed the sovereignty not because he by courtesy had been called King of Tui Viti, but by virtue of the Constitu- tion Act, to which the white settlers, who had invested money in the island equal in value to all the land held by his Majesty and his chiefs, had con- sented. That Act provided that the Ministry must have the confidence of the white Assembly, and that the State expenditure should be ...

Town Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

Town Talk. BY RAMBLER. Scarcely a week passes without the record of a death in this small community. This is   becoming a serious matter, and it behoves us to examine into the cause of these sudden deaths. It is useless to disguise the fact that in too many instances these men are hurled into eternity through their indulgence in intoxicating liquors. Men come to this country in a diseased state, and are totally unfitted to contend against a tropical climate like ours. Yet, in spite of all this, warned as men are beforchaud, they plunge into ex- cesses of dissipation which in too many in- stances end in death, or, at best, in partial paralysis. These deaths are invariably set down to the climate, or "fever," whilst the real agent is carefully kept in the back- ground. We are but a mere handful of people here as yet ; but we are rapidly be- coming familiarized with the "grim spectre,"' and, to a certain extent, show our callousness by ceasing to wonder at the frequent pre...

Nugget Gold Mining Company. [From the REGISTER, October 13th.] [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

Nugget Gold Mining Company. [From the REGISTER, October 13th.] A general meeting of this Northern Terri- tory gold mining Company was held at the Secretary's offices, Waymouth-street, on Saturday, October 11. There were 21 shareholders present ; and Mr. W. Goddard presided. The CHAIRMAN having stated that the meeting was called in accordance with the Articles of Association, read the Directors' report, which stated that their manager had reported the claims as being entirely value- less. Since then two claims on Pine Creek had been offered to the Company by Mr. A. Henning, from whom the Nugget Claims were purchased, but these were found to be similarly worthless. The sum of £485, which had been forwarded by the Directors to Mr. Henning for the claims, was telegraphed for, but an answer came that he had been mur- dered by the blacks, and it was recommended that legal proceedings should be taken. The SECRETARY mentioned that about £300 had been found on the person of Henning, and he h...

Italian Explorations in New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1873

Italian Explorations in New Guinea Some two years since a series ot ar- ticles appeared in this journal giving a resume of the discovery of New Guinea, and pressing upon public attention the scientific interest and commercial im- portance of further exploration of that magnificent island. At that time the Dutch crîrvette Curacoa was lying in our harbour, ostensibly bound on such a mission. The Russians had also sent forth the young, enthusiastic, and efficient explorer, Nicolaus von Micluco-Maclay.   The prospecting expedition   from Sydney in the Maria, which came to grief on the Barrier Reef so unfor- tunately, had started. Various papers in the Transactions of the Royal Geo- graphical Society, the Royal Society of Sydney, and in certain Italian journals (wi*h reference to the proposed expedi- tion of the Italian naturalists, Beccari and D'Albertis), brought matters to a head. Dutch jealousies became awa- kened, and despatches were sent to the Governer-Ge...

LAW COURTS., LOCAL COURT-PALMERSTON.   THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4. {Before Dr. Ellison. S.M.. Mr. John Lindsav, J. P., and Mr. Robert Gardiner, J. P.) CLARKE V. ADAMS. This was a case in which the plaintiff sued Mr. Adams, owner of the schooner Clarice, for the sum of £75 14s. 7d. for cash and provisions supplied. Mr. Clarke stated that he had engaged the Clarice for three weeks ; but that defendant did not keep faiih with him, inasmuch as he was constantly drunk and incapable of attend- ing to his own affairs. He had no men on board, and no provisions, the consequence was Mr. Clarke was compelled to get men to do the work which ought to have been done by the owner or men employed by him. And the vessel was not in a fit state to receive cargo as represented by Mr. Adams ; nor had he men on board to work her. The defendant made a long rambling state- ment to the effect that he was not helplessIy drunk, and that he had men on board. His vessel was perfectly watertight, and he h...

Palmerston by Night. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1873

Palmerston by Night TO THE EDITO*. Sir-Whilst admitting that Rome was not, built in day, and that even Palmerston must' be allowed time to grow, I would still submit' that the inhabitants of this embryo city haveí a singular way of enjoying themselves. In' fact, if a stranger had landed here last, Monday evening, and had attempted to take1 a walk along the thoroughfares, which by* courtesy are called "streets," he might have supposed that the whole population had "gone in " for a revival of the old Bacchanalian revels ) and that the cause of this outburst was the j arrival and enthronement of some heathen, goddess who might have recently reached these; shores, and set up her temple in the chief streck j of the city. ' The goddess, too,-actually presiding in heil temple, surrounded by mystic bottles of colored * fluids-sacrifices offered by Bacchus-^could (be really seen on this occasion flitting about (with her back hair down) in a most daz/ling and gorgeous manner ; whilst the muse...

THE GOLD REEFS. (From our own Correspondent.) Pine Creek, November 29. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1873

THE GOLD KEEFS. (From our own Correspondent.) Pine Creek, November 09. We left the Palmerston Mining Company's camp, Howley Creek, on the morning of the 25th, and struck across to the Cosmopolitan claim, which is also in the Howley district, at a few miles distance from the Palmerston. The Cosmopolitan is a private affair, and is being worked by two men, Cooper and Aubin. Tliey have followed a gold-bearing quartz reef down about sixty feet, besides driving a tunnel at 30 feet, and have raised some promising stone. These men are work- ing with a will, and in that respect offer a strong contrast to most of the Howley Com- panies. They are men who have roughed it very much since they have been up here. A party of four of them lived a long time last year in this wild district with no other provisions than bad flour, salt, and tea. They were trying the alluvial diggings then, and when they washed up at the close of the season they had 16 ounces for each man. From the Cosmopolitan we proc...
