Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Miscellaneous. A rich mundic reef at low levels, Braid- wood. The Pacific mail steamers running be- tween Sydney and 'Frisco earned last year-by pas- sengers £10,002, and by cargo £20,959. Another mining disaster feared at Gres- wick. The workmen are afraid to go below to com- plete the escape shaft, owing to the danger of an inburst of water. The camels being introduced to South Australia for cross country work, can each carry one ton. £2 10s. worth of hair can be shorn from each animal every year. Three great ocean steamers recently raced across from London to New York-the Austral, Arizona, and Aurania. The latter won by 24 hours, so we suppose she may be classed Al., The Austral waa last. Ko matter ; she may be the first;-to the bottom again. The Presbyterian General Assembly, at Saratoga, adopted a report on Sabbath observance, in which, among other things, Sunday newspapers, Sunday travel, and taking mail matter from the post-office on that day, were disapproved of.

Death and Destruction. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

. Death, and Destruction. The past week has been " lively " for death. À blundering young* doctor at Melbourne gives a barmaid 10 gre. of morphine instead of half a grain, and she destils sweetness from behind a bar no more. The doctor of course is called to another bar.-The cable informs us that "Black Death" or plague of cholera is carrying off the people of Toulon and Marseilles, to which latter place it has extended ; the deaths are from 15 to 18 per day and increasing ; panic ensues and the population is fleeing. By the way, many Australian medical men say we in the colonies are by no means safe from attack.-The Susan Gilmore, American ship going for coals was wreaked outside nobbies at Newcastle but all hands saved.-Heavy disasterous floods have occured all drwn the Talley of the Hunter, destroying an immense amount of property but fortunately unattended hy loss of life.-The Brisbane telegrams reports one or two fatal accidents and a suicide-Small pox has evidently got a footh...

Interviewing a Big Man. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Interviewing a Big Man. A Melbourne reporter interviewed the great Duke of Manchester, and apparently both got out of then depth. First, the " Dooke" says the Colonial Insti- tute (of which, note, he is president) has done an immense deal pf good for the colonies, and will do more. This is true. If not watched, it will push us into a plundering naval scheme. With regard to the French criminal question, the "Dooke" advise8 Australia not to irritate the French people, or else they will persist in sending out their criminals. This ascribes cowardice to the Colonial people, in which, of course, we don't join. The Duke next says Lord Roseberry has been, and will be, of great use to the colonies. If he only gives the colonists a taste of the treatment he gives his own poverty stricken tenants in Scotland, he'll certainly do a lot for Australia. Then, His Majesty, the Duke, speaks of the Federation question, and says, " Gladstone is against you-the country is against you-and I hope there w...

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Political. Strange news! In Spain, a country bursting to be Republican, the Conservatives have carried the elections. The pupulation of Skye Island has de- creased from 21,521 in 1851 to 5700 in 1881-the result of forced enumeration, starvation and death. The N.S.W. Government will float a five millions' loan shortly. They will wait, however, till the Land Bill passes. In that case they may be afloat themselves. Mr. Richardson, the political know nothing of Sydney, who stood for West Macquarie recently, beat his opponent, Mr. Lewis Lloyd, by 9 to 1-but it was only at Teapot Swamp. Richard son polled 18, and Lloyd 2. It is right that Teapot Swamp should go straight. Richardson is a "hot" cold-water spouter. Mr. Richardson, head of the N.S.W. Political and Protection Association (2£ men), was defeated for East Macquarie. Richardson is one of the greatest duffers that ever faced a people, if we except Luscombe, and is one of a handful of men in Sydney who openly expressed a desire to r...

THE WORLD'S FACTS. 40,000 bicycles are running in America. ' Several of the Pittsburg iron mills, U.S.A. have stopped work. Suicides among juveniles in France are fearfully on the increase.

Since June 30,1888 the American debt bas been reduced by £17,412,434. Ballway cars drawn by camels is the coming novelty of central Africa. Even America is feeling the tide of manufacturing dullness. The New England mills are working only two thirds of the week. One of the leading religious men of New York, a bank manager, recently absconded with £25,000. He was subsequently arrested.

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Scientific. The butterflies of England are gradually disappearing, from some reason or other. The gutta-percha tree is certainly dying out. The young trees do not seem to thrive. I Â photographic invention enables schemers to pass off kangaroo or calfskin as genuine alligator hide. Cast-iron pipes are proved by scientific test to supersede all other material for house and land drainage. German scientists are using the phono- graph to fix the speech and melodies of unknown tribes in África. The plates thus used are forwarded to Berlin to be unrolled by the machine, and the natural sounds are produced with absolute fidelity. Every pupil received into the lyceums and colleges in France must give evidence that he has been vaccinated. Since the enforcement of the new law, not a single cace of variola or varioloid has appeared at the Lycée Louis le Grand, where the utility of the restriction was fully tested. M. de Fonvielle has suggested the follow ing method of detecting infernal machin...

THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

THINGS AND OTHERS. Ownro to the illness of our reporter no upcountry news has been forwarded this week. THE steam launch Fleetwing returned from her second trip to the Victoria River on Tuesday evening, after à most successful voyage. THE gold brought down by the escort this week amounts to 602oz., 320oz. being for Port Darwin and 282oz. for Southport. THE missing boat of Mr. Hudson's fleet of three turned up this week, all safe. It had been outside for some time look- ing for the two that arrived here first. THE s.s. Menmuir, on board bf which is supposed to be the Duke of Manchester, left Sydney on the 3rd, and conse- quently His Grace may be expected here on the 16th. Mn.

Killed and Wounded—.Political View. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Külled and Wounded-.Political "View. Thus a caustic English political writer:-"Be , tween the upper and nether millstone." This is 1 the existence of the British workman. There is not a law in England but oppresses him, though, were that all, he might be happy and count him- self well content. But he is faced, day by day, with graver perils and worse evils. Every morning he goes to work he faces death. Every night he lays him down on his scanty pallet he has to fear unnumbered ills,-the ills of fever from bad drains I and unsanitary surroundings ; thc ills of disease sown by bad food ; the shortening of. life by expo- sure to all weathers. Faces death, do I say? The workman in the pit, in thc factory, literally take the loaf which feeds their family from the bony fingers of thc grim skeleton of the churchyard. Take sir, as an example of this, the returns pub- lished last week of the accidents to railway guards, brakesmen, shunters, and other servants of thc great carrying companies....

A Great Wrestling Match. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

A Great "Wrestling Match. The recent wrestling match in Baltimore U.S. for £500 a-side between Mateada Sorakichi, the Japanese wrestler, and Doñean G. Boss the famous Scotch champion, was certainly thc finest contest of modern time, and ended in a draw. After the referee introduced thc athletes there was an audible titter from all parts of the house, and such expressions as " Boss can lay him ont without trouble "-" Give the Jap a chance "-But thc mus- cular Japanese, with his monkey face distorted into a grin, bowed his acknowledgments, and then turned to meet his adversary. As the pair shook hands, their dissimilarity in size and appearance was the more apparent. Giving Boss' hand a sort of pump handle shake, he suddenly shot back, sank on all fours, and prepared for business. This round it was announced, was to be fought in Japanese style. Any portion of the body, excepting the feet, touching the ground constitutes a fall. For a second the giant before him gazed down upon the pig...

Farmer & Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Farmer & Grazier. The cow-pea is the most prolific foliage, and certainly one of the best plants known for nse as ensilage for stock. Last year, France grew . 846,671,000 bushels of wheat. The average price of the wheat in England, for the last ten years, is 48s 3d per quarter. California will this year export li million bushels of wheat and barley. The year's return is-57,316,400 bushels wheat, and 577,900,000 bushels barley. Larged full grown trees may be safely transplanted in removing if the tops are completely cut off. It will be safer to take two -years for the operation, cutting half of the roots each year. Such trees may be removed in safety, especially if a good share of thc top is removed at transplanting. The London papers say there are two more monuments to John Brown, Queen Victoria's at- tendant. A life-size bronze statue is to be placed in the hall at Balmoral, and a large headstone for his grave is complete with quotations, Scriptural and poetic, selected by ...

JEALOUSY—MURDER AND SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

I JEALOUSY-MURDER AND SUICIDE -About 6 o'clock on Saturday night, April 26, a highway leading from Jordan to Meridian, N.Y., was the scene of a shocking double tragedy. Some days ago a man and woman, registering as Oscar J. Putnam and wife, put up at the hotel at Jordan Depot. Friday they went to Utica, and returned at I about 2 p.m. on Saturday. Putnam hired : a team, and taking his wife and putting a trunk in the wagon, started for Meridian. Several miles out they met Mr. and Mrs. Sturge, who were driving in an opposite direction, and Mrs. Putnam asked them to stop, saying her husband had been threat- ening her, and begged their protection. Mrs. Sturge, although a stranger, got into the wagon with the Putnams and sat on the seat between them, and Mr. Sturge turned his horse about and drove behind them. When within about a mile of Meridian, Putnam suddenly flung himself over against his wife and fired three shots at her in quick succession. The first ball entered the palm of her ha...

THE "GAY DECEIVER." [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

THE « GAY DECEIVER." üeorge - Weston, a licensed victualler, about 45, known under the aliases of Ward and Wallis, was indicted at the Middlesex Sessions oh May ll, for obtaining by false pretences from Susannah Cole the sum of £60, and small sums ; from Elizabeth Fountain the sum of £70 and other moneys ; and from Lucy Pryke the sum of £40 and other moneys; in each case with a fraudulent intention. The three charges against the prisoner were identical in character. In the first case-that of Lucy Pryke, a lady's maid, of Ellingham-street, Pimlico-he made her acquaintance in the street, and met her several times after- wards. He said his name was George Ward, that he was a valet to a Mr. Craw- ford, of Eltham, Kent, and that he wished to marry and settle down. He would like to take a public-house. Of this Miss Pryke approved, and on one occasion he took her to view a house in Cold-harbour-lane, Brixton, which she said she liked. Miss Pryke told him before they did get married she sho...

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Woman Items. Florence Nightingale strongly advocates woman's suffrage. The Melbourne block is the lati-dude of fashion in the southern city. The pure blonde type is entirely dis- appearing from the American woman. The Brisbane girls are dead against cre- mation. They are all for ice-cremation. Dr. Mary "Walker, the eccentric female reformer, says she will wear trousers or nothing. Fiel Several of the Melbourne ballet girls now wear smiles all through their performances. It's high time they began to wear something. " What is more terrible " said the lec- turer " than the Maelstrom ?" "Well, I guess," said a listener "the female "strom."

Irrigation in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

Irrigation in Australia. It is an undoubted fact no branch of colonial farming or pastoral work in these colonies has been so persistently or so widely ignored as that of irrigation; and this is the more   extraordinary, seeing that Anstralia is one of the countries where the adoption of a practical system of work in this direction is essential to success. Beyond the coast line the rainfall is small and irregnlar, and even on the coast districts, the want of a well planned scheme of irri- gation, has, indeed, often been sorely felt. As to the direct beneficial results of irrigation, we have evidence by every mail, in the English and American press, where detailed accounts are given of this work, showing sub- stantial profits on the outlay. In England, the chief aim of the agricultural engineer has been to improve and cheapen the appliances for irrigation work but while the improved appliances have been at the com- mand of the home farmers, they have either not been avai...

OUR AGRICULTURAL LANDS— WHAT TO DO WITH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 August 1884

?OUR AGRICULTURAL LANDS WHAT TO DO WITH THEM. As far as agricultural pursuits are con- cerned, the Northern Territory has up to the present been ill-fated. There , seems to be a spell of some evil genius lunging over it that not even the ..country's ablest champions can manage .to wipe out ; that they have tried, and .are still trying, there is not the slightest ?doubt. It is well understood that .the v country itself is not to blame in all respects, though it may be in some. But what nation is there under the sun -that can boast of having ALL superior lands Î no matter where we go it is the ¿ame--good, bad, and indifferent lands are to be met with. The Territory, then, must stand in with the ordinary class of semi-tropical parts, and we are compelled to seek elsewhere for the cause of our non-success. For years past the main aim of the authorities has been to establish a system of agri- culture upon a sugar-growing basis, the success of which will not bear analysing. The greatest e...
