The Mulligan Swindle. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 9 May 1876
The Mulligan Swindlel (From thie Ballrat Courier, April 27.) Ma. MilursioAN must be a very nice man. Jost orons would oscrupulousy avoI-arclun~lrg a numneror onrmliuK-' ing and enterprising menn into misory and ruin for thecir own profit, but Mr. Mulligan is not disturbed by any such small-minded consideration. He saw. a chance of amassing a little money in a few weeks, and he determined to avail himself of the opportunity, irrespective of what the results might be to his victims. The rush to the Hoedkinson River was the consequence, and a sorry consequence it proves to be. Over a thousand miners gathered together in a most inhospitable region, where no gold exists; where no employment is'to be obtained, and where the hoiooe of death .lies between a tropical fever and the spears of the blacks, with the moral cer tainty in the latter case of being eaten up after the process of dissolution has been endured. These are the consequences of the Mulligan rush, and a pretty spec tacle they ...

The weathlerwe are now experiencing is the first wet winter iveather we have had this season, and tlhough it is satisfactory to knb?r that all fears of a scarcity of water have passed away, it is exceedingly irksonme to lose tile sun for days, and be comlpelled to remain in doors or plod tlhoughl streets where colds and rheoumatismn lie thickly.
