LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL -:-:-+ TWENTY-ONE KILLED-70 INJURED. A despatch from Havana announces that the St., Jose powder magazines on the opposite side of the Bay exploded on May 1.

Li Havana, balconies and window shutters were thrown down by the shock in nearly every street within the Custom house wall. The hospital of San Lazaro suffered severely. Several corpses were found immediately after the explosion, and a later telegram states that up to then it had been ascer- tained that 21 persons were killed and 70 injured.

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Miscellaneous. New Zealand frozen mutton realised Sid. in the London market. There is a certain mining revival ap- proaching in Sydney. Deep-leads and denned reefs, atlast. " Whitley, the "y Universal Provider, " of London, was recently burnt ont-his loss being near upon half a million. The Phoenix mine at . Gympie was lit by electricity on May 20. That circumstance and a dividend of £2500 caused a " fill out " among the shareholders. The accused men, Davis and M'Murdo, charged with kidnapping, have been conveyed from Brisbane to Fiji by man-of-war, for trial at the High Commissioner's Court. Bechet; the Barraoli-street kerosene oil man, now in Berrima gaol, on the clearest evidence of arson, is likely to be released. The other pri- soners have our congratulations. The Imperial Government pays the New South Wales Government £700 a year for the sup- port of convict lunatics, who were sent out when Kew South Wales was a Crown colony.

Who is Opposed to Education [?] [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Who is Opposed to Education P One of the London papers, whose output is 950,000 copies per issue, speaks in these caustic terms :-" Thc clergy of the Church of England arc an intelligent body of men. Like other people, they know that two and two make four, and are not so blind to themselves or to their own consciences, as to claim an absolute freehold in the road which leads either to God or heaven. But to keep in their own hands an enormous sum of money, they most pretend that the gates of the kingdom of eternity only unlock to priestly keys. It only rests on the pounds, shillings, and pence pivot. Strip a reverend pluralist of the Church to his skin and put the question to him-first, is he a whit different to any of his fellows ? and second, does he suppose he can do anything more to save his soul, or the souls of other people, than Tom, Bill, or Harry, in the mill yonder, and he must say ' No, no.' But your reverend pluralist, sir, gets an income, first as a rector or a vicar, an...

Thirty-fire tontine policy gamblers were arrested in New York city, January 12. Significant facti Another job! £15,000 for- Government Stores and Offices at the Circular Quay, which cost, with land, about £8500. Mr. Christie, who has been defeated at every effort to enter the N.S.W. Parliament, is about to start an evening paper at Newcastle. Remorse ! On the 17th, the Sydney Assembly voted £100,000 for the new railway works at Evetish. Of this amount, some contractors will, most pro- bably, grasp £20,000.. When Mr. Luscombe, M.P. exclaimed on the hustings the other day, that he'd stick to Iiis country, he forgot to mention that he was strongly in favour of payment of members.

A Genuine Pedestrian Contest. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

A Genuine Pedestrian Contest. One of the best, and.icertainly most genuine sporting event that has come off in the colonies for some time, took place at Botany a few days ago. It was a three-event match fer £100 between Malone the Irish champion pedestrian, and James Byrnes, the champion colonial stand-jumper, the winner of two out of the following three events to take the money :-Bunning high jump, running wide jump, and 120 yards, race over 10 hurdles, 3ft. Gin. each, 10 yards apart. The sporting division were all well represented, and great interest appeared to be taken in each trial, both men coming in for rounds of applause. The first trial was mode at the running high jump ; the betting being in favour of Byrnes winning this particular event. On com- mencing the bar was put at 5ft. 4in. which both got over ; Malone, however, hitting his knee in one of his tries which pained him,a great deal. Both got over at 5ft. 7in. but an additional three inches going on to the height, brin...

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Wit & Humour. Monday is generally a fine day for cab- men. Note for . John Lucas-More waist, less speed. New Guinea wool-trade - kidnapping niggers. The feather beds of Brisbane houses all " flock " together. Look before you sleep. Bedtime is flea ting. It's nlver to late for men. The Sydney milkmen are regular artists. Most of them draw from nature. It's only just now struck 'us, that champion aquatic events are often for sweeps. . There are to be even-no earthquakes in Ireland, the people being against ground rents. ... It's, a most extraordinary thing that the N.S.W. standing army is nearly always squatting. ^ A plague at Bagdad. A visitation, no doubt, for the lying yarns in the Arabian Nights ! Richmond tobacco factory, Sydney, burnt, and £10,000 lost. Where there's smoke there's fire. If money has such a lot to say in Hanlan's exhibitions, it must be silver coin. Silence is golden. A Bathurst medico has removed a tack from the skull of a newly married man. Comment is u...

CHINESE AND CATTLE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 July 1884

CHINESE AND CATTLE. TO TUE EDITOR. DEAR SIB,-Since the recent cow shooting case was brought before the Court, when the presiding Magistrate thought proper to make some most unjustifiable and uncalled for remarks as to the Chinaman's right to shoot cattle, there has l>een another cow found dead under circumstances sufficient to con- vince the owner that she had been shot by those " harmless " Chinese gardeners who, no doubt, concluded from the remarks let - fall by Mr. Pater, above referred to, that they might shoot cows with impunity. It is impossible to obtain evidence against the yellow skinned swine strong enough to satisfy a Philo-Chinkey Magistrate therefore it would be useless to take a case of this sort into Court. But let me warn the Chinese and their friends that unless something is speedily done by those whose duty it is to prevent a recurrence of this sort of crime, other means will be resorted to to punish the offenders. A charge of dynamite exploding in one of their ...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 22. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 July 1884

COUNTRY. MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ., July 22. The cricket match between the Sur- veyors and All Comers was played on the Oval at Brenda on the 19th instant, when about fifty Europeans (including several ladies) were present. A most enjoyable game was played to. the satis- faction of all and resulted in a victory for the Surveyors. Several residents from Port Darwin Camp and Twelve Mile attended, and a return match will be played at the former place about the 2nd August, when, no doubt, a more even game will result, as the . losers on this occasion had some men among their team who had never handled a bat be- fore. Mr. J. P. Hingston captained the Surveyors, and Mr. C. W. Nash the All Comers. Mr. Wells was umpire. A grand booth capable of holding about 70 people was erected, and a dinner was given by the Surveyors, everyone seem- ing to enjoy themselves immensely. Dr. Wood most ably carried out the duties of chairman, and on his right and left were, the ...

OPEN COLUMN. THE CHINESE QUESTION. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 July 1884

OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to the Editor must he couched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case the writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] THE CHINESE QUESTION. (BY " A TRAVELLEB.") To THE EDITOR. LAST week I neglected to forward my 1 usual budget, but with your kind per- : mission I shall now follow the thread of < my argument. It is put forth as nn argument by some that Europeans cannot do the work that would bc required of them here were the Chinese ousted from the country. This is another brainless standpoint. How is it that in tlie very hardest and hottest branches of labour thc whites can work from six o'clock in tho morning till six in the evening and feel no ill-effect beyond weariness, which is an indisponible fault, even to the most toil-inured. What labor is there here at the present time better calculated to finish a labourer up than that of blacksmithing ? And yet Europeans...
