The Singer Sewing Machine. ARRANGEMENTS TO SECURE THE AUSTRALIAN TRADE. SINGER, THE BENEFACTOR OF HIS AGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
' The Singer Sewing Machine. ARRANGEMENTS TO SECURE THE AUS- TRALIAN TRADE. SINGER, THE'BENEFACTOR OF HIS AGE. The mechanical scientists have been the rea kings of modern time. While some men have fought for and won renown on the battle field, at a huge sacrifice of human life, there have been others engaged in the field of mechanical invention who - have won empires in the hearts of men of every nationality, by reason of the world-wide benefits of their genius. And undoubtedly one of the men who pre-eminently deserves a pinnacle of imperishj able fame is that great benefactor of modern time, I. M. Singer. His was a genius which knew no boarder line, but which conferred on Europe and Australia alike the good wrought in his own country. William Cobbett, England's stern reformer and his- torian, always stoutly maintained that the heroes of the sword sank infinitely below the men who devoted then: talents to peacefully ameliorating the condi- tion of mankind by lessening human toil and...
LIFE ASSURANCE. AUSTRALIAN V. FOREIGN INSTITUTIONS. TRIUMPH FOR THE AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVIDENT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
LEPE ASSTJBANCE. AUSTRALIAN V. FOREIGN INSTITUTIONS. TRIUMPH FOR .THE AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVIDENT SOCIETY. Daring the last few weeks a discussion has been proceeding in the Sydney Press, which has wide interest and importance, and largely concerns the material prosperity of these colonies. It is no less a question than Life Assurance, which is day by day assuming in British communities the charac- ter of a National principle. In these colonies, there is no doubt, the provident spirit of the people has been created and fostered by the Australian Mutual Provident Society, which has been honestly and capably managed, being as safe for people's investments as the Bank of England, and which has distributed substantial benefits to people of all classes and conditions, till at last it has won the honour of being regarded as a great national insti tution. In fact the success of the Australian Mutual Provident Society has to some able politicians' minds solved the question of the expediency ...
GAMBLING HELL TRAGEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
GAMBLING HELL TRAGEDIES. The roll of tragedies at Monte Carlo in- creases. A rained gambler named Albert Strighelli, has shot himself at San Remo. While at Port Maghan, near Nice, a German ladjt,"an habjtuaVireqajBrteBof Monte Garlo, has been found senseless and bleeding on her bed, with her infant lying dead by her side. After losing £20,000 at Monte Carlo, she opened a vein in order to bleed her [ herself to death, and falling on her child involuntarily suffocated it. A local news- paper remarks :-" Fifty suicides and £120,000 lost-such is the yearly balance sheet of this shameful enterprise."
A LOST WILL—£2000 REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
A LOST WILL-£2000 REWARD. On April 16, an advertisement appeared in the Dublin papers, offering a reward of £2000 for the recovery and lodgment, either with Cardinal M'Cabe, or in the Public Probate Court, of the last will and testa- ment of the late Mr. James Egan. The testator, who had carried on the business of a woollen manufacturer and merchant, in High-street, Dublin, died in 1866, and be- queathed the bulk of bis enormous property, amounting to close on £1,000,000 sterling, to the late Cardinal Cullen for charitable purposes. This testamentary disposal of the property formed grounds for lengthened litigation by several of Mr. Egan's relatives, who claimed a share of testator's money.
SEIZURE OF INFERNAL MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
SEIZURE OP INFERNAL MACHINES. Birmingham has been once more the centre of a dynamite plot. It seems from what has become known that about five months ago the Home Secretary received notice that a notorious Irish American, passing by the name of Denman, but whose correct name is known to be- Daly, had arrived in England to further the aims of the dynamite party. He was traced to Birmingham, where he has since been under surveillance by the local police, assisted by some officers of the Boyal Irish constabulary, who were sent to assist in the work. The detectives discovered that he had taken up his abode at the residence of an Irishman named Egan, who lives at Lake house, Grafton-road. On April 17, Denman left Birmingham for Wolverhamp- ton, and then booked for Birkenhead. He was followed, and so skilfully were his pursuers disguised that he was evidently quite unaware that he was being watched. On Friday, the officers saw Daly leave Liverpool and cross over the river at eight o'clock...
Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
Scientific. -? - The solar system has been inexistence 500,000,000 years The three popular drugs of civilization are quirune, morphine, and bromide. A French electrician has invented a new sounding lead, which tells the exact moment of its reaching the bottom by means of an electric alarm beB. A powder has been invented by a Rus- sian officer which, when placed in a glass of water, has great illuminating power, of great ase m mining or military operations. It requires to be replenished only every eight hours. A man lOst. weight, running a mile in six minutes, performs work equal to that of a half horse power engine, while at five, miles an hour for all day he equals a quarter horse power ona con- sumption of one-tenth of wood or fuel. Speaking of the singing sands of Scot- land and America, Professor Bolton says, the most sonorous sounds were obtained by rubbing the sand through the hands, four or five distinct notes being audible at a distance of from 130 to,140feet. On fourteen se...
MURDERS BY A SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
MURDERS BY A SOLDIER. A allocking massacre was committed on Monday night by one of the soldiers of the 19th Infantry regiment, quartered in the barracks at Naples. Having taken offence at some of his comrades for calling him a tinker, he waited until bedtime, and, im- mediately after the signal for extinguishing the lights was given, took his rifle and commenced firing indiscriminatly among them. Before he could be secured, he had discharged no fewer than 57 shots, killing three men on the spot and wounding eight more, one of whom died soon after being taken to the hospital, while five of the others are reported to be in a hopelesss state.
LOSS OF SIXTEEN LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
LOSS OF SIXTEEN LIVES. A terrible accident hai^ occurred at the Farke Islands, involving" the loss of 16 Uves. Two boats, each with a crew of eight men, and heavily laden with fish, were caught in a gale and capsized. Several other craft were in the vicinity, but, on account of the heavy sea that was on, were unable to render any assistance. Most of the men leave widows and children, and in both boats were cases in which lathers and sons went down together.
LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. LOVE, MURDER, AND FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. LOVE, MURDER, AND FRAUD. A case was decided in the District Court, at Denver, Col., on Feb. 9, which contains more sensational points than the average work of fiction. It reads more like a chapter in a novel than a strange romance . in real life. The first portions of the story have passed. The last chapter was ended in the court by the breaking of the will of James Scanlon, who two yean ago deeded property worth £6000 to the Catholic church in Denver. Scanlon's rightful heirs, a widow and two children, wrested the pro- perty from the church. The case was on trial three days, and the facts brought out by. the evidence are truly surprising. A Catholic priest of Denver has been con- victed of wilfully defrauding the heirs in order to obtain possession of the property for himself and the church. Thirty odd years ago James Scanlon came to the United States from Ireland, bringing with him his wife, a comely lass, whom he had married in county Donegal. They lived ...
THE AMERICAN LYCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
THE AMERICAN LYCHLNGS. An American print of recent date, points ont the cause of the frequent lynchings recently chronicled:-"The point of the argument is that j uries, courts, and governors, by their ' false sentimentality in favor of the cold-blooded murderer,' make themselves responsible for the lynchings of notorious or suspected criminals which are now so frequent, and the argument is enforced by reference to the case of Frank Bande, a notorious desperado, who, after being sent to the Illinois Penitentiary for an atrocious murder, assaulted and killed a deputy warden, who had given him some sort of offence. The villain, who was with difficulty overcome, boasted that he had ' left a trail of blood all the way to prison,' having killed not less than nine men ! This scoundrel instead of having his sentence commuted to imprison- ment for life, should have been sent to the gallows ; and we lay the responsibility for the murder of the deputy warden upon the officers of law who spared...
THE WORLD'S FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
THE WORLD'S FACTS. The Jeanette expedition cost the Ameri- can Government £100,000. The smallest kingdom in the world is Andorra, in the Pyrinees, 17 miles long by 15 wide. Everyone, rich and poor, in Japan takes a dip at least once a day in hot water-and still they're not white. Prince Henry of the Netherlands .was in- duced by De Lesseps to build a palatial hotel at Port Said at a cost of £150,000. It was a failure of course, and De Lesseps offered £15,000, but the Prince's executors said they would sooner dynamite it. Now the English Government are the par chasers at a good figure. The telephone was fore-shadowed hun- dreds of years. Da Vinci writes, saying, that if the large end of a trumpet were placed in the water and the small end to the ear, the movement of a ship through the water could be heard miles away, and if applied to the earth, the movement of armies or bodies of men could be distinctly heard many miles. In England when a person is bitten by a dog bis injuries are n...

Miscellaneous. Gympie's-monthly dividend, £29,800. Eaglehawks are doing the " lambing down" in Biverina just now. Massachusetts declines the Bill for the public whipping of wife-beaters. A sale of Clydesdales at Merryton, Scot- land, recently, brought 900 guineas. At a fearful fire at a Glasgow Tramway Depot, 200 hundred horses were burnt. In the low lying districts of Victoria, large numbers of sheep are perishing from worms. An American Navy is to come into exist- ence. Steel cruisers and gunboats are to be imme mediately built. 271 emigrants from an Irish workhouse, shipped, to America, are to be at once returned at the expense of the British Government. The first through train from the city of Mexico to Chicago, entered the latter city 28th March-accomplishing the journey in five days. If England or Franee become involved in war, it is regarded as certain that Bussia will demand freedom of navigation in the Dardanelles, Bosphorus, and Black Sea. Some Victorian sportsmen came acr...

DREAMS AND THEIR OMENS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
DREAMS AND THE Hi OMENS. A mystic writer Bays:-*To dream of eating oysters, forestalls prosperity, and that yon will be. [ ; married to a lady will love yon. To dream of paper, i^ByoniSSm^mra^r^^ an easy path, shows that yon will be successful in love ; or if yon are married, yon will obtain what yon now wish for. To dream you see a peacock, is a sign you will be married to a beautif al lady, and that you will be very rich. To dream of pears, de- notes elevation in life, great honour and riches, love that knows no termination, and success in every pursuit you may embark in. To dream you fall into a pit and cannot get out easily, denotes some serious calamity ; that your sweetheart is false, and will prefer another. To the sailor, a shipwreck ; to the farmer, a bad harvest. To dream you are at play, betokens great happiness in the married state, and increase of business. To dream you see a pond with clear water in it, betokens great success in your undertakings ; to a maid it shows t...
A MOTHER POISONS HER CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
A MOTHER POISONS HER CHILD. Mr. Lynn coroner, held an inquest on April 17, at North Shields, on the body of John Holmes Burns, aged 8, son of Mr. John Burns, solicitor's clerk, Sunderland. The child's death was caused by poison ad- ministered by Sarah Jane Holmes, who also attempted her own life by taking poison. It appears that the prisoner and the father of the child had been living to- gether. A quarrel occurred, and they separated, the father taking his son away to his grandfather's house at Sunderland, from which place the prisoner brought him, and took him to her house at North Shields, where she administered poison to him, from the effects of which he died, she having a narrow escape from death by taking poison. Evidence was given that prisoner had, prior to committing the act, purchased at dif- ferent chemists three sixpenny packets of vermin-killer, portions of which she had given the boy, taking other portions her- self. Dr. Bates made a post-mortem ex- amination, and said...
Personal. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
Personal. Moneare D. Conway was lecturing in London on April 20, on " Sunless Sundays." General M*Iver is in Melbourne waiting for recruits for his New Guinea expedition. The General says that he's Scot. This may be. But he's not a canny Scot. The Rev. Joseph Cooke, recently in Chicago was very roughly handled for saying that railway conductors cry out as the trains enter the city, "Twenty minutes' stop for divorces." James Bussell Lowell writes to a friend in Boston that he likes living in London " all but fresh and salt cod, cb^sTb^nriaeat^eakOT^and^ baked beans, which are actual necessities almost wholly unknown in Great Britain. A memorial to Charles Dickens having been proposed in London, one of his friends sends to a newspaper a passage from the the novelist's last will. " I conjure my friends on no account to make me the subject of any monument, memorial, or testimonial whatever. I rest my claims to the remembrance of my country upon my published works." At one of the battles...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 July 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Mr. N. J. Brown, Works Minister in the N.Z. Government, is the latest addition to the advertised list of diplomatic duffers. This gentleman has been enlightening the Southern world with' his views on federa- tion and the French criminal questions. Provincialism is in bas relief on his pro- gramme. In very tall talk Mr. Brown an- nounces that France must not deport her criminals to the South Pacific, nor must any other Power in Europe enter upon such a course. This is very squeaky language I from a man who doesn't appear to know that there is such a thing as a domestic policy, interference with which one country will not tolerate from another. Gladstone's dedicate handling of the question appears tobe thrown away on colonial ''states- men." ** ** ** Another big bit of humbug for which Mr. Brown, of New Zealand, is responsible, is his bombastic casting of à net over; the whole Pacific. He strongly supported the Sydney Convention in " their lending^the weight of a un...
