EXTRAORDINARY TO THE "NORTH ATTSTRALIAN." THE S.S. Taiwan on a Reef July 26. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 July 1884

She is now lying abo.ut half a mile up on the reef, and at high water rights herself ; but pur informant says she has gone too high up on the reef to float "4 off for many days. ? So far no signs of leakage are visible, but as it was blowing a gale when the Turquoise left, it is more than probable that she will very soon bump a hole in her bottom. The Turpuoise and ship's boats have taken over 30 tons of cargo from the vessel, but it did not help her to any extent. AU hands are safe on board. ATTENTION is drawn to an alteration in Messrs.

LARGE JEWELLERY ROBBERIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

LARGE JEWELLERY ROBBERIES. Alfred Vaughan, 26^clerk, pleaded guilty in London Court, May 9, to stealing 28 gold1 rings, the goods of Messrs. Wilhams, jewellers and diamond merchants, 108, Hatton-garden. The prisoner, who is very respectably connected, entered the service of the prosecutors some few days previous to March 31 last, on which day he was in- structed to take a case of valuable rings to a lady residing at Maida-vale, and if they were not approved it was his duty to return them. He left two of the rings with a lady in question, and absconded with the re- mainder, the value of which was £150. Upon an examination of the stock the pro- secutors found that they had been robbed to the extent of £2000 at least. Mr. Inspector Feel stated that the prosecutors some short time since, had been robbed of property to the value of £19,000. The assistant Judge sentenced the accused to eighteen months' imprisonment, with hard labour.

On May 9, Dr. Thomas held an mquiry at Marylebone (England), into the circum- stances attending the death of Frederick Francis Joseph Fullerton, agedsix months,-: a son of adecorator, of 18, Sherbonrne-street, Marylebone. The mother stated that np to the time of vaccination the deceased was a healthy child. It was vaccinated at the pnblic statiou by Dr. Summer. A week later the arm was much inflamed, and the child was so ill that she took it to the Samaritan Hospital, where it was seen by Dr. Day, who said the symptoms were those of blood-poisoning, and told her what to do. The deceased afterwards became much worse and was covered with a mass of sores, and died on the Sunday mornig. She believed that the child had died from the effects of vaccination. Professor Pepper said that he had made a post-mortem examination, and found that there were several abscesses about the body. The cause of death was blood poisoning, following absorption of pns from the sore in ...

DISAPPEARANCE OF A YOUNG LADY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

DISAPPEARANCE OF A YOTJN** LADY. A lady, who said that she was Mrs. Thornton, and lived in the locality of Hinde Btreet, Manchester-square, informed one of the presiding magistrates, May 9, that her daughter Louisa had been missing from home since Friday, the 2nd of May. On the evening of that day the girl, Bhe said, crossed the street to make a small purchase, and had not been seen or heard of since, notwithstanding that every possible inquiry has been made about her. She (her mother) had reason to fear that she had been decoyed from her home, as she knew of no reason why she should leave it of her own free will. One remarkable circumstance in con- nection with the case was that about a twelvemonth ago the girl's twin sister disappeared in an equally mysterious manner, and was afterwards found drowned in the Grand Junction Ganai. Louisa Thornton was described as being sixteen years old, though looking younger, 4ft. 7in. in height, of fair complexion, with grey eyes, and very thick,...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. SHALL WE BUEN ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL SHALL WE BUEN ON EAKTH. Mr. Justice Stephen decides that crema- tion is legal in all English communities that apersonmay burn a dead body, provided he does not commit a nuisance or provoke a breach of the peace. Dr. Cameron, in the interests of the public, asked the House of . Commons on May 8, to accept a Bill making regulations [for the proper control of cremation. His measure had two objects ; f l) to provide that a proper certificate of death shall be given in all cases ; (2) to prohibit the burning of corpses unless in properly licensed crematoria. Last year no fewer than 20,19, persons died in England and Wales, 4,289 in Ireland, and twenty per cent, of the population of Scotland, without having the cause of their death certified. This, is a great evil, taken in connection with the statement of the Home Secretary that his official experience has taught him that poisoning by arsenic is common. The supporters of the Bill pointed out that cremation has bee...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 29. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 29. Doctor Wood started for the Kather- ine Bi ver on Thursday last to attend S. Budgen, who has had his leg broken below the knee by a kick from a horse. The break, I am told, is rather a 'severe one. Doctor Woods will have a sharp drive, as the O.T. folks mean to take him to Daly Waters within the five days. I hear that Mrs. Byan, from the Shackle, has taken the Margaret Cross- ing Hotel ; but I am afraid Port Darwin Camp's " rosey " days have all passed away. The fever has been very busy of late amongst us all, and the weather here is as cold as charity. Sickness is aided greatly by the strong south-easter that blows night and day. The survey of Brenda is finished, and Mr. Hingston is about starting for Saunders' Creek to cut up the capital lands there. I think the area of the blocks is to be one hundred acres. Mr. Cuthbertson takes the Price's Springs selections . in hand. They ' expect to have all finished in a...

THE S.S. TAIWAN AGROUND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

. THE S.S. TAIWAN AGROUND. j QUITE a stir was created on Saturday last by the pearl-fishing lugger Turquoise bringing the news that the China Navi I gation Company's fine steamer Taiwan j had run on a reef near the N. W. Island of the Vernon group. The steam-launch ! Maggie was at once chartered by the I company's agents (Messrs Adcock Bros.) I and a start was made at half-past 2 p.m. for the stranded vessel, the launch hav- ing on board the agents' representative, Mr. Searcy and a couple of Iiis officers, the Harbour-master (Captain Marsh), Dr. Morice, and the inevitable bevy of reporters. Our "special" has handed us the following :- _ "Leaving the anchorage at half-past 2 p.m. with a fair complement of steam up and a light south-east wind filling the sails, we moved smartly down the bay, the intention being to get to the Taiwan before dark, or, at any rate, very shortly after. We had nothing more particular : to do going down the harbour than admire the shore scenery as much as co...
