NOTES IN OUR HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
NOTES IN OUR HISTORY. A romantic incident occurred with the convict ship Lady Shore, bound to Sydney in 1798 with 60 female convicts on board and a detachment of Military. The soldiers mutinied, shot the cap- tain and officers, and then married the female con- victs. The ship was sailed to Ric Plata and de- livered to the Spaniards, the mutineers settling in America. The lyre bird, or bird of Paradise, was discovered in a peculiar way. A band of discon- tented convicts, who believed an aboriginal legend as to a white settlement 500 miles up the coast were allowed to go free to discover the settlement. Several died, others were murdered, but one returned with a prise in the shape of a lyre bird, then for the first time seen. The only military execution that ever was carried out in Australia was that of a soldier of the 39th Regiment, named Brennan, who was shot at Dawes Point, Sydney, April 6,1832, the site of the A.S.N. Company's Wharf. Another soldier was to have been shot, but thr...
Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
Political. The London LANCET, from medical rea- sons, advises Gladstone to take a Peerage. The American Minister at Berlin, Mr. Sargent, bas resigned his post, and refused appoint- ment to the Russian capital. The affair has been occasioned by the Lasker Liberal resolution. A telegram from Borne says that the Pope will shortly issue an Encyclical letter directed against Freemasonry, and pointing ont to tha Go- vernments the dangerous character of its tenden- cies. The House of Commons has rejected a motion against bishops continuing to sit as mem- bers of the House of Lords. In the House of Lords a motion in favour of opening the museum of Lon- don on Sunday was rejected. At Dumbarton, Scotland, a remarkable case has just engaged the attention of the United Presbyterian Presbytery. Mr. Gray, a member of the Helensburgh United Presbyterian Ghbrch, who hod been elected to the office of elder, had been re- fused ordination by the session, on the ground that " he took a walk in the coun...
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The cable reports a series of terrible dynamite explosions in London, in the vicinity of St. James's-square, the official centre, and also at Scotland Yard, the head-quarters of the detective police. Serious destruction to property has followed, and one or two lives have been lost. The usual method of procedure was adopted the explosives being deposited by stealth, and fired by means of a mechanical appli- ance. À Victorian Commission reports that from 7 to 20 per cent, of the cattle slaughtered for consumption in Melbourne are affected by tuberculosis. This is very unsatisfactory for a city which hopes to rule the group. Consumptive people iack intellectual and physical vigour. What would be the effect of this meat on the Southern Protectionist party ? We fancy the party would win, on the principle-like cures like. The condemned man, Morgan, convicted in Victoria of the murder of a young girl, whom he had previously assaulted, has con- fessed his guilt. He ascrib...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. A CRICKET match is to be played at the new township of Brenda (on the M'Kin- lay) between the Survey Camp and Up- country Residents, which, no doubt, will attract the whole population of Europeans up this way. The bats, Ac, have been presented to the players by our worthy Dr. Wood, who takes great interest in all such amusements up here. The match takes place on the 5th. Messrs. Moffatt and Gibbet* have made a tour of all the mining districts, and they speak very favorably of the country as a gold-bearing place ; but, as regards tin, I don't think it has been up to their expectations, as the places are not as yet properly developed. The Spring Hill claim is looking grand-" as good as gold." They are down 160 feet, and the reef is 12 feet wide. At the Extended they are crushing stone from McIntyre and Delmar's claim, which goes nearly 2oz to the ton. Messrs. Olyma and Co. are still out somewhere near the New Rush. One of the party was in last week for...

Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) ADELAIDE. JULY 3. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) ADELAIDE. JULY 3. The'volunteer review on Saturday was a grand success. Captain Ferguson, President of the Marine Board, has obtained six months' leave of absence in conse- quence of ill-health. The Residents of Port Adelaide have presented him with sympathising addresses. 4000 Chinese in Tonguin have been attacked by 700 French in violation of the treaty recently signed by the two nations. A desperate battle occurred at Lang Sou when the Chinese were defeated with very heavy loss. The Chinese Govern- ment repudiate this fresh action on the part of the French. Cholera has broken ont in France. The Australian Eleven beat the gentlemen of England, after a most exciting match, by only 46 runs. Judge Andrews died a few days ago in Tasmania, and Mr. Bundey has been sworn in his stead. Ebenezer Ward has been ap- pointed Chairman of Committees by sir votes over Mr. Furner, Hexstall, a greengrocer, hanged himself here on Monday. In the intercol...
THE DALY RIVER COPPER DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
THE DALY RIVER COPPER DISCOVERY. IT was not at all a matter* of surprise to those interested in mining during the last 10 or 12 years in the Northern Territory to read the glowing report published by the Government on the re- turn of the ministerial party, who visited the settlement some two years and a half since, more especially that portion which was supplied by Professor Tate, having reference to the geological formation and probable valuable mineral pros-wets of the colony. Since the party referred to visited the mining districts several very valuable discoveries have been made in gold, silver, tin, and copper. The men- tion of the last named ore brings me to the subject upon which it is my intention to send you a few notes* Some six months since those, energetic prospectors Messrs. Houschildt and Roberts took a trip out westward in the direction of the Daly River, and whilst in that part of the country discovered a valuable copper lode. From reliable information re- ceived, I ...
The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 4. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
fyit florin ^nsiralian. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 4. OUB telegrams of a few weeks back disclosed to oar readers a very import- ant feature in connection with tho. Parliamentary representation of tho - Northern Territory. The item referred to mentioned that the two members for the District of Flinders, having this, portion of the Province included in their constituency, were somewhat offended at the upcountry Chinese Restriction Memorial being presented to head- quarters through the Northern Terri- tory Association instead of by their agency. The petition was forwarded to the Association by the proprietor of this, journal at the instigation of Mr. A. D. Gore, who was mainly instrumental in. having the petition drawn up and signed.. At the time that it was forwarded to the metropolis there was no recognised member for the Territory, as the elec- tions were just about beginning, and consequently no blame whatever can be attached to us for taking the action we did in having the petition pres...

A Sea-side Residence at Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
A Sea-side Residence at Sydney. It is a very strange thing, yet a well-known fact, that Sydney, which boasts the finest harbour, in tho world, has been noted for the utter absence of what maybe called first-class sea-side hotel residences. Melbourne, Adelaide, Ac, have their attractions in this respect. But now, thanks to industrial enter- prise, which somehow is always the main spring of genuine reform, a splendid hotel at Manly Beach, facing the ocean, is at the command of visitors to the Sydney metropolis who want change of air, or a sea- shore residence for any period. The Steyne Hotel, which stands on the ocean beach, is certainly one of the best built edifices in or about the city, and far more commodious than many other hostleries This first-class house has now been taken by Mr. Cousens, who, it will be remembered, made, such a success with tho Imperial Hotel, Mount Victoria. There is far greater demand for a sea-side hotel than even a mountain retreat, and Mr. Cousens has ar...
