Princess Alice. ONCI AN ATHEIST—WAS SHE A CHRISTIAN? [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Princess Alice. 0NC1 AN ATHEIST-WAS SHE A CHRISTIAN ? A * selection " has been made of the letters writtm by the Princess Alice and published in Lomon in book form, meeting with a very large sale. The volume will be an addition to what may be tinned the ephemeral literature of the year, but will probably be read by thousands who will pro nomce the young woman who penned them, and whowas one day something like an atheist, and the next professed herself a Christian, one of the pro- digio of the age. Although the English Parliament gave £30,000 on her marriage, and £6,000 per annan, she and her husband appear to have been alway; in difficulties. Once we find her writing " quite a confused letter in the midst of honsehold trouons." The Emperor and Empress of Russia had jffered themselves for breakfast at Kranich- stein; " and Louis is out, and I don.t know where or hov to have the things in our small MENAGE." In 1866she writes again : " Y)nr idea of Friedrichroda for ns was so good, bnt...
Sporting Mems. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884
Sporting Mems. Polestar, sold for £200, goes to India. Distemper is playing sad havoc with the Victorian sporting dogs. If Beach fails with Hanlan, Clifford will test the Canadian's powers.

A Publican Takes Poison. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
A Publican Takes Poison. There is something sad about a publican taking his own poison. William Bennett, a publican, of Jindera, near Albury, bought a quantity of arsenic and took it in a strong dose. He had been sum- moned to the Albury Court for having stolen horses in his possession, and rather than face the prosecu- tion, the unfortunate fellow took the poison, When it began to .operate, however, he regretted his deed, and sent for thc doctor, but all to no purpose. Death put an end to fearful contortions. We must have our little joke. Poor Bennett is the first publican this year who has taken his own poison.
Attempting a Gaol Warder's Life. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
Attempting a Gaol Warder's Life. A desperate attempt to murder a warder was made a few days ago by a prisoner in Darlinghurst Gaol. Elliott, .a warder, who has been in the Government service 23 years, and within the past fortnight had been advanced to the first-class, was assailed, unexpectedly, by a prisoner in ene of the working yards, and a deadly weapon being.in the rascal's hand, fearful injuries were inflicted. Elliott's dying depositions have been taken. His assailant is a graduate of the Vernon, and a notorious young reprobate. He is to be aragned for attempted murder, but it will be for a jury to say whether he has been exasperated beyond con- trol by the "nagging'.' process, too often adopted in prisons. The last case of the kind was that of a prisoner in Parramatta Gaol, named Kelly, who assaulted a warder with an iron weapon, inflicting wounds which laid him up for some weeks. Kelly was tried for attempted murder, and sentenced to death. On the scaffold, in Darlinghurst ...
£10,000.—Breach of Promise. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
£10,000.-Breach of Promise. The cable tells ns that the suit for £10,000 by Miss Fortescue, the actress, against Lord Gar moyle, for breach of promise of marriage, has been arranged. The giddy young lord recompenses the injured lady. The points of the case are simply these, and they have a political as well as a social bearing. Young Lord Garmoyle, with more money n bis purse than manliness in bis heart, or brains n bis head, won Miss Fortescue for a transient pur- pose, and promised her marriage, and all that. This young girl is the daughter bf a respectable London tradesman who had failed, and who after- wards became a helpless invalid, necessitating the girls and boys of the family going out to earn t heir own livelihood. Her proper name is Palmer, but she assumed for the stage the name of Fortescue. Lord Garmoyle carried on, till his engagement with ' ' young lady of rank and estate " came on the cards for fulfilment. Then he cast the plebian girl aside. The young lady sued him ...
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. A Domestic Broil.—A Man Shot. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. -? - ? --'-V' A Domestic Broil.-A Man Shot. Some people will never learn. In a township near Sorrento (Vic), a man and his wife were having a fierce quarrel, when " Mrs. Nesbitt," as a Sydney paper puts it, " was knocked on the head insensible, and then screamed 'murder,' .murder."1 A number of people came up to arbitrate, whereupon Nesbitt took down his gun, and lodged a dozen rabbit shot in the lower extremities of one David Swan. Now the state of the case is this-Nesbitt is in the watchhoose-bis wife's in bed, and Swan's in the hospital. Worse than all, Mrs. Nesbitt says it serves Swan right for interfering.
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. The political future of England looks promising. We have a glimpse of that future in the action of the British Cabinet with regard to New Guinea and the Sonth Seas. The Liberals and Eadicals are shaping the policy of tte country, and the British Nation takes up the work of consolidation and improvement. It is pretty certain the programme of the fighting and grasping party is doomed. The cable messages of the week state that the Gladstone Government declines to establish a protectorate over New Guinea or the Western Pacific Islands. And we honestly believe such a course will give wide general satisfaction to Australians. And why so? Because it saves all these young colonies from being linked on to the costly system of Imperial rule; it prevents a waste of strength ; Eaves us from increased danger in the event of war-and more than all, - pnts before us our real work for the next century-the great work of colonization and devolopment of territory already under our fl...

Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ADELAIDE. AUGUST 7. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OW» CORRESPONDE***) ADELAIDE. AUGUST 7. The Minister of Justice asserts that the financial position of the Northern Territory is better than that of South Australia proper. He estimates the revenue for the coming1 year (including £30,000 for land sales and leases, £25,000 for Cus- toms, and £16,000 from balance of loan) at £100,000 altogether. The maximum expenditure (including £19,000 interest on bonded debt) he pats down at £70,000, thus leaving a credit balance at the end of the year of over £30,000, which will be applied towards reducing the balance payable. It is considered that the accounts have been kept improperly and some of the items charged to the Territory wrongly. Mr. Moule intends moving that the drawback be allowed on duty paid goods re-exported to tho Nor- thern Territory. ' ' . The Assembly have passed the Exhibition Repeal Bill. A large majority of the suggestions were'to carry ont the exhibition by private enterprise. The Bill to abolis...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 8. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 8. MANY of our readers are, perhaps, be- coming sick and tired of the manner in which we have been called upon ta find fault with Mr. Pater's management of the judicial affairs of the Territory ; but, instead of our hints and suggestions having the'desired effect of closing 'the S.T4. to alter his tactics, they have ap- parently sunk him deeper into the sea of trouble which now hovers densely round him. Although freedom of thought is the right of all, yet it very often happens that the public expression of one's thoughts may lead to an endless, amount of inconvenience «nd even dis- grace for the person or persons to whom they refer. In the Local Court action of Ah Wi v. Troopers Smith, Stott, and Cox, heard on Wednesday last, Mr. Pater passed a severe stricture upon newspaper reporters that it is impossible to pass over without comment. The portion of the action to which we take exception is that where Mr. Pater alluded to reporters " as being in the pay of ...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. " A. B. " Port Darwin Camp.-The lands on the Adelaide are, as jon say, rather low lying and swampy at times, but that defect would be toa very great extent remedied by a good system of draining. The soil would also be sweetened by the same process added to the ploughing and tilling pf it. " Aquarius," Union.-Beach is generally recognised on a par with Laycock. As to the third man we should say the Clarenco Rivér youth, Matterscn, is the individual. Trickett is now in Queensland. "Enquirer," Southport.-The steamer Palmerston has 21 hands all told. The monthly computation of wages we are not in position to give. We have heard it said that the Europeans are to be dismissed and Chinese pat m their place, except where the former cannot be done without. You know the Government must cut down expenses somehow or the "White Elephant " will again be in mourning. " Fever, " Union.-We Lave no more reason to doubt thc veracity of Messrs.

Cheap Machinery for Colonial Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
Cheap Machinery for Colonial Requirements. One of the principal engineering firms of the Australian colonies, Messrs. D. and W. Robertson, of Sydney, an- nounce a new development in their business, and the clearance of one of the most varied and valuable stocks of machinery shown in these parts. The firm have for some years been thc Australian agents for Messrs. Alexander Shanks k Sons' machinery, and have from time to time been importing lines from mannfac j turcs. These include high pressure and com- pound horizontal and vertical engines, portable hoisting and pumping engines, compound launch engines, steam j winches, vertical and cornish boilers, multitubnlar boilers, fcc. And these appliances are now being disposed of at importer's prices, owing to the discontinuance by Messrs. Roberson of that agency. They having made arrange, ments to introduce a much higher and more suitable des- cription of new machinery, specially manufactured for this market. Messrs. D. & W. Robert...
