THE "PALMERSTON" PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
THE "PALMERSTON" PICNIC. Ox Saturday last, at tue invitation of the Hon. J. L. Parsons and Captain Carrington, a most enjoyable holiday was spent on board the Government steamer Palmerston by between 40 and 50 of our townspeople, including a large percentage of ladies. The outing was classed as a picnic, the intention of the hosts being to take the invited ones out as far as Melville Island, go close enough inshore to view as much of the beauty of that isle as can be seen from the deck of a vessel, and then to return to port. Eight o'clock was appointed as the hour of starting, but, as is pretty well always the case here, punctuality was nowhere, and a move was not made until con- siderably after that early hour. The delay, however, did not inconvenience anyone, and, moreover, it blew so icily cold as to suggest anything but early rising. It was, we may say, one of the coldest mornings we have experienced in the Territory, and the ladies gave ample evidence of the temperature by squ...
Important Sale of Stud Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
Important Sale of Stud Sheep. One of the most important sates of stud sheep ever held in the colonies is fixed for the 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17thl July, at the great wool warehouse of Hort and Co., Cir- cular Quay, Sydney. For the last five or six years these annual sales have been steadily increasing-in importance, and not only has the bnBiness developed into the most profitable of any market in Australia for . sheep breeders, but it hos become a great medium for the distribution of an improved breed of sheep, from which farmers and graziers must reap substantial results. Experience has demonstrated here os elsewhere that it pays better to breed the best sheep, and that this is being generally recognized, is proved by the fact of Messrs. Mort's sales attracting buyers from all parts of N. S.W., Victoria, South Australia, and Queensland. In fact, some of the sheep have gone to America. That higher average prices have been realised here than at any other market is undoubted, and the ...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 11. COMPREHENSIVE JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
^he 2j¡orth Rastra I ¡aa. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY ll. ^COMPREHENSIVE JUSTICE. THERE arc, we presume, certain times in the history of the Law Courts of all established nations when, through some miscarriage of justice or biassed ruling of a judge, the above heading suggests itself. We make use of the words at the present time in con- nection with the Circuit Court sittings of Tuesday and Wednesday last, and allow our readers who did not attend the Court to draw their own inference, which can be done but in one way. It was the first attempt of our newly-appointed Stipendiary Magistrate (T.K.Pater, Esq.) - to perform the very onerous duties of Commissioner, and, with all due respect for that gentleman's high-standing legal learning, we are sorry that our opinions on the law of equity compel us to find fault with the manner in which he con- ducted the hearing of the many cases brought before him. Ono of the greatest faults that a judge could possibly possess was amply displayed by Mr. Pate...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
MISCELLANEOUS. A New York bride had a wedding gift from her father for £20,000. In her fathers's will she stands for £400,000. Li Budison County, Texas, the other day, a negro, who had killed the wife of his employer, was tied to a post and burned to death by an infuriated mob. The house of John 8mith, a wealthy gentleman of Bising Sun, Nea1) New York was entered by two burglars at midnight on Thursday night last. Smith refused to re- veal the hiding place of over £1200. The men built a fire, hung Smith over it, and nearly roasted him to death. They then beat him until they thought he was dead and decamped. Smith is living. Two hun- dred citizens are searching for the men. A mother seal followed a schooner which had captured her baby along the coast of California for eighty miles. After the vessel reached the wharf at Santa Barbara the young seal was tied np in a jute sack and left loose on the deck. Soon after coming to anchor the seal responded to its mother's calls by casting its...

OPEN COLUMN. -*p LETTERS to the Editor must bc conched in respectful and simple language ! and as concise as possible. In every case thc writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a I guarantee of good faith.] To THE Et>ITOK. THE CHINESE QUESTION. (Continued.) (Br " A TRAVELLER.") To TUE EDITOR. In the N. T. at the present time the European population is about oue-cigth that of Chinese, and even if the races wore divided and each dealt with their countrymen the former would make but scanty profit ; but even this is not so, for the Mongolian now in many instances caters for both, he having worked it so as to be sure of a certain ! number of customers of his own nation ality, and then proceeds to lay in a stock of saleable European goods, upon which he reduces the prices at once and com- mands a great amount of attention from the white population. Certainly Chinese deal to a certain extent with European merchants, but only when they require an article which ...
Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
Wit & Humour. The great catch of the season-Catching cold. Thc blind man can never have an eye dear. A slash from a razor is a relic of bar- barism. "Money" is a good name for a horse. Goes last. . Never ask a milkman's wife if she'd, like a watered milk. Young mashers look so fresh because they can't earn their sett. " He who fights and runs away, may live to run another day." To keep jelly from moulding on the top, place a boy in charge. The kangaroo is not very eloquent, but he's a rattling good tail-bearer.! The Sydney Bakers' strike terminated yeast-erday, dough they didn't get their rise. The " Watch on the Shine " means the lively gentleman on the outside of the cheese. We must get a miner to pull Hanlan. He is the only fellow who can rest on his ores. You can lead a horse to water-and it's often the same with a roan-but you can't make him drink it. The False Prophet of the Soudan was once a boat-builder. However he hasn't bee a* cham- pion sculler. A pickpocket was n...

Degronto, in Canada, the centre of thousands of saw-mills is illuminated by gas made entirely from saw dust. The discovery is important, as hitherto sawdust has been regarded as waste matter. The LANCET informs a correspondent that " the possibility-nay, the certainty, in many cases, of flies being a medium of infection, especially in warm climates, has been repeatedly pointed out, though, perhaps, the fact is not sufficiently borne in mind....
