LATEST F'taiil PORT DAIt'N. Ti'li fullwinug itemn from our latest filhes of the A'other,n Tl'errilory Towsis will doubtless prove ot considerable in terest to our readers, more espeelally to those conneCted with mining affairs. The Y'um Creek correspondent states Mr W. K Griftlhhs, who has just re turned fromnAdelnide, having purchased the plant and claims of the A. A. Com. pany, has rcesolved on trying his hand on the old lo?atiou, and will have the cooperation of soim experienced work iong miners.

THE NUISANCE PREVENTION ACT OF 1875. To the Editor of Herald and Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
TIE NUISANCE PREVENTION ACT OF 1875. To the Editor of Hlerald'iold Adrocate. Sir,-I was not surprised to see a second letter signed " Sanitary Reform" in your issue of this morning, purporting to be in re ply to one written by me and inserted in your paper of yesterlay, I was, hlowever, astonisLhed at the utter imbecility exhibited by the writer in the letter referred to. " O thlt my enemy would write ia book!" has been said to be the exclamation of a criti 'cal and somewhat vindictive personage. I hope, however, tlht I am not vindictive, nor do I desire to be critical; indeed the impo tence of the writer is so thoroughly exhibited in his recent correspondence that any vexation I may have felt when reading, in the first sentencnof his last effusion, the harsh epi thets hurled so freely at me, vanished before I finished its perusal. As I read, anger gave place to contempt, and finally contempt made way for pity. Your correspondent begins his letter by complainilg of tmy "Sir Oracle t...

BAD , NoTET.-lt apponrs that thl spurious notes now in circulation - have extended oven to the colliery offices. On last pay Friday one of the W\Varatah miners received a bad £1 note amongst others for his Ioiy. The man did not detect it himsolf, but. • it was paid by his wifo to31r. Lewis, draper, Elder-stroot, who at onco discovered that it was not genuine. On Tuesday morning the man took the note to Mr. Moody, who refused to take it back, but said if it had been re turned on Eridiy evening he would have taken it.' The man will therefore havo to put up with thoe loss, which is a very hard case. The note is purporting to be on the Commercial Bank, but is of such poor material that it will scarcely bear handling and therefore easily detected, if people weor properly alive to their interests. Any one looking at this note would wonder how it could possibly have passed through the fank, the Colliery office, and the hands of the person who re ceived it, withoat being detected. I maOy st...

WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
WVARATAIIL ExoDus -Mr. O. Harper, manager of the Grota Colliery, has been down hero during the past week, and has engaged about, thirty of the Waratahl minors to go to areta: Somo of the number wonat away on Monday, and the remainder will follow as soon as possible. This number, and more, can. bo very well spared from Waratah, as the men at present are greatly overcrowded. Whilst oh this subloet, I may stato that it has boon a matter for wonder amongst all persons who understand such matters, to know how Mlr. Harper and his officials managed for suoh a length of time to keep all the man employed. It must have cost Mr. Harper, especially, many a night's sloop whilst in the position of underground manager, and now that ho. is. manager at Greta, he has again como to the roseue. The men now leaving will relieve the oflicials considerably, and make it more colsfortable for tlhe men that are loft.
The Fiji Massacre. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
The Fiji MIrassacrc. THOsc in our fatherland who .look'ed uipon the acquisition of the Fiji Islahids' as equivalent to the addition of'aindthbe glorious jewel to the diadem of the most potent of earthly sovereigns, will feel proportionately grieved when the intel ligence of the late terrible outbreak, reaches their ears. The champions of Christianity will need again to brace up their loins and carry their lives in their hands. The philanthropist, of whatever denomination, will have to pause and. consider how these hitherto unapproach able mountain tribes are to be subdued, and brought within the pale of civiliza. tion. Rumours have reached us that one indefatigable missionary has pene Irated the ridge of the mountain barrier which divides the upper portion of Viti LevO from the lower, but has never returned, and in reality this region is, at the present time, unexplored by Europeans It would seenm then, from the last advices, that the addition of the Fiji islands to the territories ...

CAVE ADULLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
CAVE, ADULLAM. TuE position of. editor of the "Protos tant Standard" does not seem to be the most enviable inr the world. The gentle_ man'jiist alluded 't published a report last week of the proceedings at a late vestry toidoting at Christ Church, and appears to have brought~upornhimself the wrath of a combative churchwarden on account there of. It is not pleasant at the best of times to. be reminded of our little peccadilloes, but to be confronted with an angry church warden and a copy. of one's own. effusions at the same time, would require I should thiihk, even the proverbial bravery or effointery of an editor. Both of these, according to the ' Standard' were put to the test on Wtdnesday last. The irate churchwarden entered the editor's den, ' Standard' in hanrd, and after the usual interchange of spiteful civilities, demanded from the telnporary ruler of the literary destinies of the ' Standard' what he meant by the word "Sacerdotalist." Who' or what is " SAoCRDOTALIST." The viv...
