The New Tea Season. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
The New Tea Season. It is just as well that the corni try storekeepers of N.S.W. and Queensland shonld note that the New Tea Season, as regards the Australian market will open a few days at the outside. The cable intelligence received by Messrs. Barker k James, the well-kuown tea importers, Market street, Sydney, indicate that the first tea steamer from the China ports may bo expected to arrive in Sydney about the second or third week in July. It is but a short time back that no regular time could bc fixed for such an event ; in fact, we may go so far ns to say, that to all intents and purposes thc Australian market did not count for much in thc arrangements for thc opening of the China tea season. But thanks to colonial enterprise, thc Austra- lian market now compatcs with England, France, and Kew York, and both thc Indian and Chinese planters and exporters regard thc serving of the Australian market as of equal importance to the European or American. And there is this most essenti...

Standard Paint Works. NRLUX OF NEW CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
Standard Paint Works. KÏT.TJX OP NEW CAPITAL. There is no doubt that the tricks of trade bring* thci" ' own correction. And this is certainly to bc noticed in thc t circumstances which have led to the establishment at Sydney of the Standard Faint "Works. For a considerable period of time, thc English and American manufacturers have had a splendid market in Australia for their produc- tions, and being, virtually unopposed by local mannfnc tarers, they have been accustomed to moke thc colonies the receptacle for their more inferior goods. This has been notably the case with one of the principal paint manufacturing companies of thc States, whose shipments when they were good, held undisputed hold on thc colonial trade. By degrees however, the quality became lowered, and it was clear that the paints we were re I ceivingin the colonies were nothing more nor less than I refuse remixed and passed off as thc best compositions This fact became patent to some capitalists, both in tho colonies...

He was at a loss to under- stand it, but went about his duties as usual. The congregation filled the church for thc 7 o'clock mass, and during thc most impressive portion cf the ceremony an old lady in the middle aisle of the church suddenly sprang up with an affrighted yell, throwing the congregation into consternation and exclaimed " May everything that's good betune us and heaven." At the same time a large William goat sprang out from under the pew and ran up thc middle aisle towards the alter. Sexton M'Gilvern immediately gave chase, but was unable to capture the goat, who dodged in and out among the pews, and it took thc united efforts...

Another Chance for Country Investors. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
Another Chance for Country Investors. - If there is one firm in Sydney more than another which seems to grasp the requirements of the time and reso- lutely sets to work to supply these requirements, it is the firm of Messrs. Boyd & King, the rising firm of lon auctioneers, whose offices are now at Pitt-street, a few doors from the City Bank. Messrs. Boyd and King arc distinctly to be credited with the new plan of subdividing estates in and about Sydney, and offering them for sale not on the costly auction system, but on a system of very small cash deposits and easy payments at certain periods. This is really thc more true system of mercantile busi- ness. The owners of an estate can easily fix a figure which will pay them, and there being no heavy risky outlay announcing sales by auction, a much lower figure can be accepted; Then thc purchasing figure for the various lots is fixed, and no competition, however keen, can run them np. In thc space of a few weeks Messrs. Boyd &am...

DEATH OF LUNATIC TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884
DEATH OF LUNATIC TWINS. An inquest was recently held at Padding- ton, England, respecting the death of Louisa Thornton, aged 15 years, of IA, Hinde street, Manchester-street, Marylebone, who was found drowned in the Grand Junction canal on the Sunday she having been missed since the 2nd May. The case seemed to excite some interest owing to the fears of the relatives tbat the girl had been decoyed away from her home, and from the fact that about a year ago a twin sister disappeared in an equally mysterious manner, and was afterwards found dead in the Grand Junction canal. No evidence was given, however, at the inquest to bear out the supposition that there had been foul play, and the only explanation suggested of the cause of death was that the girl had brooded over her twin sister's death, and had under a sudden impulse committed suicide. The jury, after some deliberation, adopted this view, and returned a verdict of " Suicide while in a state of unsound mind."

LOSS OP THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

I had been on deck, and noticed that it was a clear, starlight night. Suddenly I heard a clang going in the engine-room, signalling the engineer to back the engines at full speed. At the same time there was confused tramping on deck. I hastened on deck, when I saw plainly the spars and canvas of a big sailing ship heading directly for us. Her port light was dis- tinctly visible. The men about thc deck shouted. The collision took place the next moment. Our ship rolled to starboard on a big wave, and the other vessel crashed into us, striking nearly amidship on the starboard side. The shock completely demoralised everyone. The men cried, ' Take to the boats !' but many were too much frightened lo help themselves, even after the boats were in the water. The ship was sinki...
