The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 1. LIBEL AND OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
$¡,ht Refill Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 1. LIBEL AND OURSELVES. TN another column will he found an apology to our new Stipendiary Magis- trate and anticipated future judge, Mr. T. K. Pater, which is tthe upshot 'of a letter that appeared in the NORTH AUSTRALIAN of the 25th instant, signed by the writer's anonym of "justice." We were requested to insert the apology as the only alternative to a criminal libel action, and, upon proper represent- ation of the falsity of opinions expressed in the article referred to being given to us, we do not hesitate to make the required reparation. It is not our in- tention, as some may suppose, to gain notoriety by publishing indiscriminately literary criticisms of a personal nature ; but we nevertheless shall deem it our bounden duty to give insertion to any matter (whether referring to single indi- viduals or a collective body) that reflects against the welfare of the public, by whom we are supported.

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Wit & Humour. Two fires at Hay. Just the place for a blaze. * Not current in Australia-The New Guinea. Onr Artizan Nihilists-the Sydney do nothings. The sattle plague of Australia just now is the high price of beef. The champion boxer of Brisbane is the Goverment undertaker. Justice at last. We see that a medical man at Adelaide has taken his own life. There are thirty pawnbrokers in Bris- bane, and yet they're sixty cent-sible men. The Bine Ribbon movement has extended to the Victorian bar. We'd like to say bars. The Sydney unemployed are crying out for bread, and yet they're always on the loaf. ? Farmers in the country districts find many of the Sydney agents very ricketty in the hay business. The recent Adelaide earthquake seems to have shaken public confidence in the new Minis- terial programme. Dan O'Connor and another retired knight cf the cleaver were the joint authors of the Butchers' Sunday Closing Bill. The Victorian medicos want to make out that the rumoured outbr...

The Household. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
The Household. Here is a receipe for a three minutes' pudding :-Take one tablespoonful of flour and one of sugar, a teaspoonful of baking powder, and one egg. Place the mixture in a small long dripping tin, and bake lightly. When removed from the tin, spread either stewed apples or preserved fruit over it, and roll it up like a bolster. It is described as a three minutes pudding. Dr. Sheppard the well-known medical scientist speaks of hot water being a splendid remedy for cold, sore throat, Ac. He says:-"I have used hot water as a gargle for the past six or eight years. In throat or tonsil inflammation, and in coryza (or cold in the head), if properly used at the commencement of the attack, it constitutes one of our most effective remedies, being frequently promptly curative. To be of service, it should be used of considerable quantity (a half-pint or a pint, at a time), and just as hot as the throat will tolerate. I have seen many cases of acute disease thus aborted, and I recommen...
Australia to the Front Again. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Australia to the Front Again. Thc cricketing team is not to be the .only living advertisement we are to have in England of the " go " in Australia. It has been announced far and wide in the English and French Press that there will be a grand new attraction at the Westminster Aquarium in the shape of three fine horses from Australia, described as the best jumpers the world has seen. The announcement states that these three Australian horses at private trials in England before the directors eclipsed the performances of the best Beauvoir and Pytchley hunting fields. It is believed that there will be large attendances of sportsmen and others to see the Australian flyers. To back up this attraction the Government have secured for the institution an elephant considerably larger than the celebrated Jumbo, sold to Barnum. This monster, named the Viceroy, comes direct from India, and is son to be the largest elephant ever seen. So Australia is in it. By the way, could the Aquarium directors ...
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Terror Stricken—A Confession. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Terror Stricken-A Confession. On the lath December last, a vauman was going | along a street in London when a thief, seeing thé owner's attention diverted, abstracted a parcel from the Van and made off. Informed of the occur- rence, the driver pursued the thief, and they disap- peared down a by-street. Shortly afterwards the Yanman was discovered in a dying state, having been stabbed in various parts of the body. There wes great excitement in London at such a bold crime being committed in the open day in the city, but no trace of the murderer was found; the author of the deed would nothave been discovered but for his being stricken with terror night after night. In February a man named John Bolton was convicted of larceny and sent to gaol by a London Bench, and it was while in his cells, overcome with the recollection of his greater crime, that he resolved to confess. And here is his statement :-" I, John Bolton, a convict undergoing penal servitude, having been d...
A New Use for Brickbats. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
A New Use for Brickbats. The recipe of our Maitland people is-kill or cure. The other day a poor fellow fell into the river, and was rescued half-drowned and insensible. Then was the thoroughness of the Maitland people exhibited. The application of their recipe was to kill or cure. Burning hot bricks were applied to the sufferer's feet, and it is not surprising that he failed to get up and walk. When all the expedients of restoration had failed, the body of the man was examined, and then it was found that the bricks had roasted his feet, and were sticking to the flesh. What he really died from-hot bricks or coldwater, will, probably, not be definitely known. But this fact must be published-bricks are not to be applied to people's feet-they are intended to be thrown at some people's heads.
Bad Luck for a Publican. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Bad Luck for a Publican. There has been an accident to the projected trip to the continent of Mr. Howell, ex-publican of Bris- bane. That gentleman, it appears, left his much oved city while some dispute between himself and his creditors was in process of settlement in the In- solvency Court. And the creditors appear to have been much hurt at hearing of Mr. Howell's sudden departure for Europe. His friends bad been de- prived of an opportunity of banqueting him. It was resolved to bring him back, and the invitation to return was conveyed him by a gentleman in blue just as the gay and festive Howell had stepped on to the Orient mail steamer at Sydney wharf. But if Mr. Howell was required to return, there was no reason why Mrs. Howell should not proceed on her voyage, and she did ; but only as far as Melbourne. There on the Orient boat, she also wis arrested, and in her possession was found a ¿raft on an English bank for £1530. And now her presence is required in Brisbane. Such a brea...
Shooting Affray—Bad Prospect. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Shooting Affray-Bad Prospect. The piek and shovel work at the Prospect Water Works has been diversified by a little play with shooting irons. One of the navvies "out there" appears to have been annoyed at his wife going so frequently for washing to the other men's tents, and accordingly resorted to the revolver. He made a desperate attempt on her life, but she will survive her injuries. Having finished with his wife, the exasperated fool songht his child also with mar derous designs; and quite naturally, then attempted his own life. He appears to have two severe pistol shot wounds. When the the curtain went dowa on the tragedy, the offender took to the bush, nuking he knew not where. He was, however, captured in the region of the mountains, half mad, weak, and otherwise in a most miserable condition. Il is to be regretted that all this row has occurred over a bit of washing. Is it that in this case-cleanliness is not next to godliness ?
