A MAN FIGHTS A RAT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
A MAN FIGHTS A RAT. The details of a disgusting exhibition of brutality have just transpired at Ilkeston England, in the shape of a man and rat fight which occured a few days ago at Gotmanhay, a suburb of Ilkeston, chiefly in- habited by colliers. At a spot near the Granby Colliery a group of men collected. Presently a piece of string was produced, and a fierce-looking rat was forthcoming. The cord was attached to the animal's tail, and the rat was the centre of attraction for a moment or two, while a man among the group, who was familiarly addressed with a nickname which betokened him to be of Irish origin, allowed his hands to be tied behind him with another piece of string. These* were the "combatants," and all being ready for the battle a space was cleared on the ground. The biped knell down and a shower of " coppers" was thrown to encourage him. The man in charge of the rat placed the animal on the ground, retaining in his possession the string attached to its tail. The fight t...

Ward, visited a college city in Scotland, where the Highland lairds of both high and . low degree sent their sons to be educated. - The announcement that lessons in boxing were to be given by the professor distracted --? the attention of the students for a time from "the " small Latin and less Greek" that they were engaged in acquiring. The academic ' halls were for a time deserted for the " ring," formed in a circus, where the pugilists gave .the primary lessons in the "first fours." _ . Professor Blackie, at Marschall College, and * ~ Father Gordan, at Blair's College, gave their " lecture on the "humanities" :fo empty ? ; benches ; their pupils were intent on learn- ing from Professor Ward how to punch humanity's head.

CIRCUIT COURT. TUESDAY, JULY 8. (Before T. K. Pater, Esq., S.M. Commissioner, and a jury of six.) I Mr. E. H. Whitelaw acted as Clerk of Arraigns, Mr. J. 6. Knight, Clerk of ! the Court, and Messrs. R. D. Beresford and C. E. Herbert prosecuted alter- nately. Mr. Soo Hoo .Yoke acted as Chinese Interpreter. The first case iras that of Loo Fun Mai, who waa charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm on one Qwong Sing at Hous cbidt's Bush on the 7th day of April last. Prisoner was defended by Mr. Herbert. Plea-Not Guilty. Before proceeding further with the case Mr. Beresford (Crown Prosecutor) made an application in which he, stated that thc inosecutor (Qwong Sing) was at present ying at the Shackle in a very precarious state, and he had an affidavit signed by himself to show that he was a very material witness in the case. He therefore thought it would be unfair to proceed with the charge. He read affidavits from Constable Waters and Dr. Wood proving that the Qwong Sing was unfit to a...

A PUGILIST—STARTLING FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
A PUGILIST-STARTLING FACTS. I Died, on che 2nd April, 1884, within the j precincts of a benevolent institution in Lon- don, James Ward, a vétéran of the old school, when peers, members of Parlia- ment, and the " upper ten " rallied round the ring and supplied cash for desperate encounters between man and man. At the first glance at the death of so venerable a character, reflection was roused to gaze upon the past eighty years, and compare then with now, when almost all classer in the United Kingdom are "protected" by Acts of Parliament, and every humanising influence is at work to improve and elevate all grades of society. Although we occa- sionally read of fierce contests in various districts through " pure love, " they are mere trifles compared with those of weekly occurrence eighty years ago ; and the Farn- borough struggle between Sayers and Hee nan may be said to have, been the last publicly-recognised great battle in England. It is astounding to read that, within a couple of g...

Sporting Mems. The Lancashire match resulted in a draw, greatly in favour of the Australians. Beach and Hanlan at last matched for £500 aside, on the Parramatta River.. Sydney Edwards challenges even Hanlan for £400 aside, at balancing feats in a small ont* rigger. It strikes ns Hanlan's balancing feats in the outrigger leaves him pretty well off. Hazael, the English long distance runner, challenges the world to a 10 or 20 miles' run, for £100 a side. An English bull dog just imported to the States is matched against any dog in America 281bs. for £500 a side. Teemer is anxiously awaiting Hanlan's return to the States. If Beach beats Hanlan, Teemer will come to Australia. Charles Mitchell has been boasting in America that he is champion of all England. A London sporting papei says, there are at least five light-weights better than he is. Young Dutchy, the Sydney pugilist, was proceding at latest dates to New York, to meet Charles Norton for, the light-weight championship of America. ...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. BURGLARY BUSINESS IN LONDON. ' Burglary, like other Beeret sciences, has latterly made great strides in London, and if the. police are to keep pace with its de- velopments, they must throw over many aid-fashioned notions. They must look for their man in places where, hitherto, they would never have expected to find him. ' The successors of Bill Sikes have altered their whole appearance, and with respect Able habiliments have assumed respectable . manners. Roguery has become more dar- ing, more many-sided, more kaleidoscopic. During the hearing .of a charge at Green- wich recently against a ticket-of-leave-man and a convict, a second convict named Clarke, now under sentence of pena! servi- tude at Pentonvale, was brought into the witness-box-. His disclosures were of a Very remarkable character. From his evi- dence it appeared that there were tradesmen of good repute in London whose stock-in- -trade was simply-the result of burglaries. In some cases they were...

BRENDA. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 July 1884
BRENDA. As many of your readers are interested in the progress of the central mining town- ship, the following particulars may be of interest. The township itself is, I think I may safely say, very properly named Brenda (a native name), and it would be wise on the part of those whose province it is to give the new N. T. townships names to adhere as &nbsp; closely as practicable to this rule, as it will be found that, generally speaking, the names :are very euphonious and the use of them will prevent a considerable amount of confusion in the future in defining localities. &nbsp; Brenda is situated on the banks of the River M'Kinlay and is about the most cen- tral spot in the present worked mining districts, being about 30 miles from the Howley and Bridge Creek, 28 miles from Pine Creek. The general formation of the central blocks of the township is slightly undulating, but only sufficiently so as to provide a good natural drainage in the1 wet season. The M'Kinlay runs...
Lost at Sea—By What Means? [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
Lost at Sea-By What Means P There is an inquiry at Melbourne just now, long after the occurrence, as to the cause of the loss of the ship Bulwark, bound from Yokohama, for an Australian port. And the inquiry comes about from the accidental arrival in port of three survivors of the ill-fatted vessel, three years after her loss, j These men attribute the foundering of the vessel to the fact of her shipping at Yokohama, as ballast, a quantity of soft silt or mud, which in rough weather washed to the fore part of the ship, choked the pumps, and sent her bow foremost to the bottom. One of the sailors says the,captain was a drunkard, but the other two deny the statement, as also that the ship's boats were rotten. It appears that these three men survived the catastrophe in an open boat, in which they spent six days, without food or water. Oregon (U.S.) was the locale of their landing. A ' strange story this. Three survivors of a wreck in port together three years after the occurrence 1

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 18. MY notes this mail are of little in- terest as far as thc reefs are con- cerned. Things as yet aro pretty quiet, and we waut something extra bo take place to stir us up. I hear that Messrs. Lucanus and Hedley's store and also the public house have changed hands, Messrs. Allen and Co. being the purchasers. It is to be regretted that Messrs. Lncanns and Hedley could not make the business sufficiently profitable to remain in it themselves, but now they mean to commence business again as auctioneers and commission agnts ab the new township on the M'Kiulay, so that when things im- prove they will, no doubt, be recom- pensed for the hard times they have gone through as young beginners. Messrs. Armstrong and Hay's team in charge of Mr. Wm. Reid (an old favourite- Territoriau) has just ar- rived at Port Darwin Camp from the Elsey and Daly Waters. The horses (numbering 12) are in line fettle, and I hear they have been gi...
