COLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

COLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. The l&te Robbery of Gold in Trassite — The recent sticking-up of some share holders in No. 2. Basbman'a Reef, a very rich claim, and the robbery of their gold while in transitu from the BlUibong to Forbes, are facts which naturally lead us to enquire whether sufficient protection is given to the persons who have laid out so much time and money in developing the ex tensive reefs which are now exciting so fae queatabn fa^the ' Wehattva.'' mpvgSSC the prospects of the Billibong are generally looked upon as preferable to those of Forbes ; the quantity of gold being actually obtained we believe to be larger than what Forbes produces; and, certainly, more capital is teing invested there than finds its way on to this field for purposes of speculation. But although this all is the case, the individual daimhulder has not vouchsafed to him any safeguard against the robbery of his hard earned gains. No sooner is his quartz crushed, and the proceeds ready...

MORE LIGHT ON THE USE OF TENDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

MORE LIGHT ON THE USE OF TENDERS. Is our last number we published a letter from Mr. Butter, said to have been an employee of Mr. Fitzgibbon, contractor, Engineer-in-Chief and Com missioner of Kailways for the colony of Queensland. Oddly enough on the same day there appeared an article in the favored organ of theGovBrnment, the Queensland Times, which in every re Bpect confirms our correspondent's statement. We shall proceed to com pare the two versions, and we do not doubt that the public, following our examination, will come to the same conclusion. Let us recapitulate our version of the circumstances attending the tenders for the railway works, and that of our contemporary. We said that at the Board the tender box was opened. That fact is not denied. We further said, that out of that tender-box jour tenders were taken. That statement is also not denied. But the Queensland Times, acting on exclusive information, tells us, that 'immediately on the tenderers leaving the board-room, he...

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY For the Month. SYDNEY. Janniry 18.

PUBLIC COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

PUBLIC COMPANIES. It is satisfactory to be able to tarn occasionally from defective and dis agreeable public administration to praiseworthy efforts by individuals, and by small bodies of influential co lonists to develope the resources of the country, or provide facilities for carry ing on and increasing its trade. Where the combined action of a few meti of energy and standing can be concen trated on any project of general utility, the difficulties which are usually to be encountered are carefully estimated, and the means of surmounting them considered and provided for. The character and ability of the originators of an undertaking have very justly mneh weight in determining its success with the public The object and the advantage to be secured may be fully admitted, and the necessity for imme diate operation be conceded ; but if a doubt obtain as to the good faith, ability, or caution of the projectors, the scheme will not meet with sup port, and the preliminary proceedings are so ...

NEW ZEALAND. TARANAMI. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

NEW' ZEALAND. TABAKAKT. A Cohbesposoekt thus writes to the Argiu :— Taranaki, a province in New Zealand, known only as tbe sceno of war, is quite worthy the notice of «ny who admire the picturesque. The town of New Plymouth, a name seldom used, is the capital of the province. It is situated in a bight, bounded on the south by very romantic-looking rocks called the ' Sugar Loaves.' Those rocks form a landmark to the seamen making the port, if such a term can be applied to the place, and are useful as a breakwind to ves sels lying at anchor with a southerly wind blowing. The landing-place is a fine piece of sandy beach, and the average of the year would allow of vessels discharging cargo at least five days a week. The surf boats are manned by as fine a set of men as will be seen anywhere, and until the 1st of January, managed by a veteran by name Watson, wfio has served the public faithfully twcntv-tlireo years, in a very difficult aud danircrous position. He is now, on application fo...

CONCLUSION OF THE CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

CONCLUSION OF THE CBICKET Mirabile dictu"! / The great match between the Victorians and the Ipswich United Club, which opened on Friday. so auspiciously for the Brisbanites. ended on Saturday in their total defeat There was an idea prevailed with many people, that the game had been purposely forfeited by courtesy to the visitors . but let it not be entertained for a moment . Every lover of the sport ?knows too weel the value that a cricketer places upon his professional reputation to give a single notch for the sake of courtesy by any other amiable or mistaken motive. In the first place, the Victorians suffered severely on Saturday by the absemce of Mr Wilkie, who was necessarily absent owing to illness in the family; and secondly, the rain which fell during the afternoon rendered the ball "greasy", and greatly interfered with the usual effective bowling of Messrs McNish , Fowlesand Oldham. Everything passed off most agreeably; there was no visible shade of ill-feeling or unworthy j...

There are both States and Colonies in which, after the statements that have been made, and the preliminary mea sures which have tbeea agreed to, there would be no danger in concluding what would bethechief business of theensuing session.

THE MISSING NORTH AUSTRALIAN. Sir,— On glancing over your Summary this morning, I find in one of the concluding sentences of yonr 'Notes and News' that you have been led by an advertisement in the Courier to make a statement calculated to affect me very materially in my capacity of Parliamentary Librarian.
