A Bushranging incident. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 2 May 1891
A Bushranging incident. [BR GEORGE JACKSON.] In '68, I, James Alien, was digging on the Wiedding Mountains. I wasn't very luckythere, so after a short spell I returned to Woodlands station, eight miles from Bathurst, accom panied by a mate named Harris. The proprietor of the station, Tom Lee, gave ns ten shillings a week and tucker to prospect^his land (free hold) for him. I may just say here that we found nothing payable, only finding about as much gold as made up our ten shillings a. week into fail waged. ! - Those who know Bathurst don't ji^ed to be told what grand country it is about there. The plains are something immense. * Woodlands was situated about a mile back from the Macquarie;' a lovely view of the Bine Mountains .was obtained from the house, which was built of brick with a shingle roof. There was a vineyard in front of the house and an orchard all round it. I was told chat originally the sta-J tion had been bought for a keg of mm. That, of course, was in the early days...
The Young Folks. Saved from Death by Lot. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 2 May 1891
Saved from Death by Lot. All day a, heavy-loaded train liad been ploughing through the hot sand over a desert plain. Men and horses were tired from toil and weak from burning thlrstj so that when the summit was reached and the relief of a down grade was realised, a mad rush for water: was the result of impulse. The* rambling- waggons filled the canyon with trembling echoes and tbe men shouted like children released from school. There was danger in that canyon, and the experienced plains men who made up the company, with George Gordon as waggon,master, would ordinarily have scanned the walls of rock and the tangles of bushes with caution, half expecting every suspicous sound to be a signal for some savage tactic of war, but now they were in toxicated with anticipation of a good dinner and a camp in a shady grove by the refreshing, gurgling water of the creek below. The bulky waggons with white covers, drajra by long lines of splendid horses, threaded the narrow grade in the approach ...

You must, however, have been misinformed upon the subject of my contesting the seat with Mr. Brown, a? when I was honored with the confidence of my fellow citizens in this matter, I stipu lated certain conditions, one of which was that we should not weaken our forces by opposing one another, and that I would only stand in the event of Mr Brown retiring, as had been stated he was willing to do in the event of a Separation candidate being willing to come forward. As Mr. Brown has since satisfied any doubters as to his soundness upon the Separation question, the field lias1 been left between him and Mr. Ogden. Yours, &c., WILLiAM A. ACKERS. Tovrnsville, 27th.

liiother Murder* (BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.) (FBOU otna OWN COBRESPONDENT.) NEWCASTLE, April 28. Shortly before two o'clock this morning intelligence was received at Newcastle that a murder had been committed at Bullock Island Dyke. From information to hand it appears that tliree men named Patrick John O'Grady, Thomas Lawrence and Robert Campbell had been drinking togetherthrough ont the day. and after the public houses closed they adjourned to the Dyke. All three were wharf laborers and general handy men. During a conversation a quarrel of some kind arose which resulted in O'Grady killing Campbell with a sudden blow on the back of the head with a heavy instrument of some kind. Seeing the effects of what had been done he jumped into the harbor. The alarm was given, and boats from a ship in the vicinity put out: Some men working the cranes also put off and secured O'Grady just before he sank for the third time. The police arrived and arrested both O'Grady and Lawrence.* On examination t...

Alleged Murder of "Cut- Throat Jimmy." &nbsp; ARREST OF P. D BOURKE AND McLOUGHLIN ON SUSPICION. Some excitement was caused last night (says the Townsville Bulletin of 25th inst.), when it became known that P. D. Bourke, of the West End Hotel, and a man named McLoughlin had been arrested on suspicion of having murdered the Chinaman cook at the hotel. It is alleged that on Thursday night the deceased, who was known as "Cut- throat Jimmy," in consequence of having once made an unsuccessful attempt with a butcher's knife to cut his own head off, had an altercation with the two accused men in the bar. Subsequently, it is stated, the Chinaman was attacked in a passage, and re- ceived injuries Which necessitated his being carried to bed. He grew worse during the night, and died early yesterday morning. Dr. Ahearne made the post mortem examina- tion, and found that death was due to blows on the head. The Bourke family are much in evidence just now, as Mrs T. Bourke, sister of P. D....

Charleville News. Charleville, April 25. &nbsp; Captain King and 20 of the Toowoomba &nbsp; Mounted Infantry left here at 9 a.m. yes- terday for Cunnamulla. As they passed the unionists' camp three shots were fired, but they were treated with indifference by the &nbsp; troops. &nbsp; Fanning and Brennan, two prisoners who &nbsp; were convicted for intimidation, left for Roma Gaol by yesterday's train.

PUBLISHED WEEKtiF. SATURDAY, MAY 9, ISO J. Hie flKfinteg, Pastoral stud Agricultural Society. AT the meeting- of the members of the Charters Towers Mining, Pastoral and Agricultural Society held on Wednesday last, it was agreed to hold a show this year. In this we are in perfect accorcL with the members, for it would have been indeed bad for the prestige of the Society had it allowed 1891 to pass without an exhibition, and such a lapse would have tended to reduce the subscribers list very materially. Next year is the Towns ville turn for their show, and had our Society missed this occasion, no fitting' opportunity would have occurred for the popular re-union on Charters Towers till 1893. The good effect of ! the meetings of Societies like our Mining, Pastoral etc. Association cannot be oiser estimated, and the j spirit of healthy rivalry that is en gendered among exhibitors is h7 no: means the least of the benefits accru ing. For a long time it was looked on as an axiom, that of nec...

The men who were working it were hurled violently to the ground, and also four others employed in clipping horses.

It was fully an hour before the deadly fumes entirely s...
