Fearful Death of 3 Children. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Fearful Death of 3 Children. News has been received by wire from Gundagai of a fearful accident. It occurred on the Gundagai railway works early on Sunday morning, July 13, when three little children were roasted alive. The father of the children is a navvy, working on the new line. He resides in a tent, and was awakened early in the morning by the noise and smell of fire. He rushed out and found the tent at the back enve- loped in flames. He made several attempts to rescue his three children, who were sleeping within ; bnt after having been severely burned himself, he failed to gain an entrance. The poor children were subsequently found among the debris, lying just.in the same position as in bed.' They must have been suffocated first. The bodies were much charred by the Hie. The ages of the children were respectively five, four, and two years.

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The Fortune of Crime. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The Fortune of Crime. The cable reports this week that the Earl of Easton will not go on with his divorce ¡mit against Kate Walsh, the Adelaide vagrant, whom he married while occupying, under an assumed name, a menial position in the civil service of that city. Miss Kate Walsh, who has been described as a courtezan (we have a straighter name for it in the colonies), is therefore now to be dubbed, the Countess of Euston. And not that only. In the natural order events, Earl Euston most become the Dake of Grafton, and Kitty Walsh then becomes the Duchess of Grafton. This looks like inoculating the English aristocracy with their own blood.

Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) ADELAIDE. AUGUST 13. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Telegraphic News. (FEOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) ADELAIDE. AUGUST 13. The Council have passed the Northern Territory Customs and Justice Bills. Regarding the Justice Bill, Mr. Sandover called attention to the ad» verse comments-of the Palmerston papers upon Mr. Pater's conduct, which have been telegraphed to the daily papers here. The Minister of Justice and Sir John Hay expressed regret at the matter having been brought np, bnt also stated that the Government would have to fulfil their promise to Mr. Pater unless very grave reasons existed to effect a contrary purpose. They argue that at present only one side of the Înestion has been pnt forward. We shall say more on this matter in our next.] The Hon. Mr. Parsons' first re« port has just been published, and has been favorably commented upon by the dailies. The REGISTER is again busy with the Pine Creek railway, urging the necessity for immediately advertising the contract in England, stipulating that iron sleepers be used, and that n...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) August 12. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) August 12. DR. WOOD returned {rom. his inland trip late on Friday night last, in good health. Of course we were glad to have him among us again, as at the present time, when sickness is so rampant, it is matter for con- gratulation when we have a doctor near us. But he has to undertake the same journey again in about eight days time. A man died at Grove Hill Hotel last week from pleurisy. He came overland from Queensland recently, and had been ailing for some time past. I also hear of great sickness in- land amongst the overlander^ to whom very little sympathy is shown by their masters, in some instances the men being simply left to their fate. Some terrible toles have been told me, which, if true, are a dis- grace to christianity. At the Extended Union all ordin- ary labour is stopped, but the battery is still crashing McIntyre's stone. Mining matters in general are very dull just now. The return cricket match between t...

FEARFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

FEARFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. On Tuesday afternoon June 8, a terrible railway accident, resulting in tue loss of four lives and injury to over sixty persons, occured on the Salisbury and Wimborne branch of the London and South-Western Ballway. The train tb which the accident occured was one leaving Salisbury at half past four. It consisted of two engines and six or seven carriages, which, owing to its being Salisbury market-day, were filled. The train, which was a few minutes late, left Downton, the next station to Salisbury, all right, but did not reach Brearaore, the following station. It had to cross a bridge over the river Avon, and after proceeding a few hundred yards further, the whole train, except the engines, left the rails while running round a long curve, at the rate of forty miles an hour. It proceeded some hundred yards after this, and then, still going at a fearful speed, rushed down an em- bankment. Carriage mounted over carriage, and the whole train became a total wreck....

Important Sporting Notice. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Important Sporting Notice. A very important announcement has just been made, which concerns the whole sporting community of the in- terior districts of the two colonies-and this announce- ment is of double importance at the present moment, when day by day we aro brought nearer to the big events at Caulfield, Flemington, Bandwick, and Brisbane. It seems a strange thing no one of recognised reliability and honesty did not see a big opening for business in under- taking to pnt sporting men at a distance an fait as to sporting probabilities, and- gire them the correct line as to alteration of price, ftc., up to the latest omment. This work has now been undertaken by Mr. J. H. White, one of the straightest men that has done business on the Aus- tralian turf. Mr. White has now been some years before the public, and has had business nt one time or another, with almost every backer and sportsman in these colonies. He has long been impressed with the opening for a big business for the public...

Australian Wool for the Home Market. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Australian Wool for the Home Market. --? - It is every day becoming' more generally recognised among the pastoral community of the Australasian colonies that it pays better to make the best possibe ap* pearancc for our wools on the English and foreign markets. And this fact being recognised, there can bc no room for saying there is not at our hands facilities for making this display. Taking one establishment alone, that of tho Collingwood Wool Scouring and Fellmongering Works, Liverpool, near Sydney, there is here every possible means of insuring a first-class representation for our staple industry in the home markets. These works are the property of Messrs. Ir. <t E. Samuel, and have absor- bed many thousands of pounds and ceaseless observation and toil to bring them to their present capacity and per- fection. Thc proprietors have just spent three years on a business tour in the United Kingdom and on the continent, and they have been able to pick up solid, useful informa...

LATEST SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

LATEST SPORTING. There is no material change in the betting on thc big events. The steeplechaser, Lizette, has changed hands, at 250 guineas. Hanlan meets Hearne, the New Zealand sculler, for £500 in August. Nederic and Mole ran for £100, at Mus clebrook, on the 23rd August. The great pedestrian contests, at Botany, is likely to attract many thousands. Jessie has been backed at a 100 to 4 and 5 to win the Hawkesbury Handicap. Cooper, the Victorian slow bowler, is a complete failure with the Englishmen. In the great match against All England last week, Spofforth took 4 wickets for 40 runs. Salvo and Fernando have been booked for some thousands for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups at 1000 to 2. Hanlan says our amateur scullers ought to drop down to 34 Btrokes per minute. It is faster, and not so fatiguing as 38 and 40. Dodds, of Lavender Bay, has built a splendid boat for Beach in the coming match. Beach's style in his training has improved twenty per cent. Proserpine has been backed ...

Farmer & Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Farmer & Grazier. Plough shallow for green crops. Carrots improve the coats of horses. Pigs are the better for salt and ashes. Pigs, to be healthy, must have bulky food. The Jersey red hog runs up to 5001bs, a year old. The Poland-China pig fattens easiest and quickest. A Jersey cow has averaged 54lbs of butter per month. Yorkshire hero is the best sort of pea for Australian cultivation. Wheat-bran feed to cow3 produces a good flow of muk, bot no butter. Buy a milch cow in poor condition «and you throw your money away. A few tobacco plants among cabbages will save them in various ways. I Sheep to be healthy, ought to have their pasture changed once a month. Scaling legs in fowls want a touch of kerosene, and so do the roosts. Tomatoes planted among melons and squashes will drive away insects. Ammonia doubles¡the crop of strawberries and heightens the colours of flowers. Hot lemonade is good for stock as well as for human beings when suffering from diarrhoea. £~ Corn cobs dip...

A Great Belgian Iron Yard in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

A Great Belgian Iron Yard in Sydney. One of the chief attractions of thc Great International Exhibition, held at the Garden Palace, Sydney, was the magnificent exhibit of iron in a raw and manufactured state from Belgium, that famous industrial centre of Europe. The exhibits then shown in girders, railway material, wheels, boiler plates, angle iron, 4c, attracted the attention of the engineering world of Australia, and a hope was expressed that a great central ngency would be established in the colonies. The representatives of Bel. gium were accorded the warmest reception, and nt the public banquet which signnlised the closing of the Exhi tion, it was stated by the Belgian representative than an effort certainly woidd be made to open a large trade be- tween the two countries. Now this effort has been made, and is already attended with much success. An extensive Belginn Iron Yard has been opened at Sydney by Messrs. Ostcrmeyer, Dewez, and Co. (Limited), and here the very best product...

A Revolution in Photography. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

A Eevolution in Photography. A practical discovery iii the Photographic Art, which virtually is a revolution, in its general effect, has recently been made, and its advantages are placed within reach of thc whole Australian public. The practical result of this discovery (which is largely due to the genius of Swan, the English electrician,) is that it places the practice of tliis most beautiful Art in the hands of ladies, private households, amateur artists, ftc, and there certainly can be no more suitable or delightful study in the country districts, when one's time is not otherwise very much occu- pied, than the practice of photography under the new con- ditions, by aid of which photos of visitors, relatives, or of gronps, at lawn-tennis, balls, parties, routs, meets, ftc., can be taken on the spot with absolute fidelity and success. The public are in particular indebted to the old established firm of Messrs. J. W. Small and Co., photographic importers and warehousemen, of 193, Cla...
