About Thumbs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 August 1874

About Thumbs. We suppose that all our readers know that man would not be what he is without the thumb. This little fact has been so impressed upon us from our school days that we are not likely to forget it. Without the thumb for a lever we would be unable to hold anything tightly, and most of the inventions ol our era would be useless, not to speak of the enormous general power that would be lost. Let us accept the fact of having thumbs, then, and be thank- ful, and rejoice over our Darwinian friends, the apes. We did not know, however, until we saw it in print, that the thumb represent intelligence and affection. Bom idiots frequently come into the world without thumbs. Infants, until they arrive at an age when intellect dawns, con- stantly keep their fingers folded above their thumbs, but they soon know better, and, as the mind developes, recognise the dignity and usefulness of the despised digit. At the approach of death the thumbs of the dying, as if impelled by some vague fear...

Scene in a Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 August 1874

Scene in a Mine. A scene "of serio-comic descrip- tion occurred on the 29th ult. at the mine of the Burrowes' Freehold Company. The cause of the scene may be briefly stated. A shcrt time ago the stone in the claim ran out, but very shortly made again. The quality of this stone, however, con- trary to the wishes of many of the shareholders, has not been made known, and the result has been that the shares were not marketable. This naturally has caused great dis- satisfaction, and a few of the share- holders determined to end their suspense by knowing what the character of the stone really was. For that purpose Mr. Gordon, a shareholder, obtained an order from the legal manager to descend the mine on the 29th ult., and, accom- panied by one or two other share- holders, repaired thither. The mining manager refused,to permit Mr. Gordon to descend. Mr. Gor- don, however, was determined to do so or perish in the attempt, and quietly awaiting his opportunity, he stepped into the cage as it ...

Pine Creek and Union Reefs. (From a Correspondent.) Pine Creek, August 1. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 August 1874

Pine Creek and Union Reefs. (Fiom a Correspondent.) Pine Creek, August 1. Nothing" of consequence has trans- pired since my last, and with the exception of the starting* of the new battery erected for the Royal Stan- dard, Edel Marie, North and South Eleanor Companies, there is very little to write about. The above mill was set in motion on last Monday week, 20th July, and has been crushing- regularly night and day ever since, so that when they clean up you may expect to hear of a handsome cake being- turned out which will no doubt gladden the hearts of the almost desponding* share- holders in Adelaide. I believe the machine has been erected under the personal supervision of Mr. Bouchier, and reflects the greatest credit upon that gentleman's ability as an engi- neer. The whole of the above Com- panies properties is now under the management of Captain Phillips, which should be a. sufficient guarantee that the interests of the shareholders is well cared for. The water for crushing pu...

Pearl Fishing. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 August 1874

Pearl Pishing. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Referring to the highly imagi- native elíusion, signed "E. Durand," which appeared in your last week's paper, permit me to say that there is not a word ot truth in the statement "That 1 informed Captain Black that he was not to think of prosecu- ting his proposed search without a licence and permission from the Government Resident ;" and I would also add, with reference to the ridiculous insinuations contained in Mr. Du rand's elaborate postscript, giving the law no the subject, that as the obnoxious demand was never made there was no need to withdraw it. The question of there being some- thing in the Land Act about a licence for "peail-fishing was mooted to Captain Black, not by me, but by a gentlemen who was with me; and as Mr. Durand appears to have a good deal of spare time in his hands 1 leave him to terret out his name, and to state truthfully what sort of demand he made. 1 may observe that I spoke to the Resident on the question which had bee...

Norther Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 August 1874

mtlmii ST^rritoriî §inwî. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY,AUGUST8,1874. THE impossibility of obtaining- land in this settlement is becoming' more and more glaring*. We have heard of a case recently in which an applicant for country land not only put in his application, but also paid the deposit which is required by law, and he then no doubt thought that everything was quite right. But he has now been informed that the Government Resi- dent has no power to complete the transaction, and that the deposit money will be repaid to him. In this case the application was for u country land/' and was made under that clause of the Act which was intended to do wonders in regard to the en- couragement for growing tropical pro- duce. The clause, indeed, looks ex- tremely liberal as it appears in print, It says that whenever any applicant for selection of country lands shall state in his application that he intends to use the land applied for in the cultivation of rice, sugar, coffee, tea, indigo, tobacco, o...
