THE WRECK OF THE NEWFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

THE WRECK OF THE NEWFIELD. The Court of Marine Inquiry gave its finding on 9th Sept. as, to the cause of the wreck of the Newfleld. It was as follows : — Tho stranding of the said barque was occasioned by the default of tho mostor, Henry Scott, in that he neglected to take proper precautions to verify the position of the ship on sighting the Cape Otway light, whicli ho erroneously took to be tho light on Cape Wickham, King's Island. Tho cou--t furthor finds that the said master was drownod on the occa sion of tho stranding of the vessel. The following replies wero given to tho ques tions put to the court by tho Marine Board : — 1. Tho barque Nowfleld was provided with proper and sufficient charts and compasses. 2. Proper measures wero taken to daily adjust the barque's compasses. 3. The boats were sufficient and in a seaworthy condition, but the chocks and hinges attached to tho skids on which tho boats rested were rusty and stiff, so much so that in the emergency the boats could no...

In those out of the way placoa visitors. are ? few and far between, and nlmoat anybody is sure to be received with pleasure und treated hospitably— that is, he will bo free . to share to the full in the rough and ready exist ence of the dwellers on the frontier and taste of its labors, its discomforts and its relaxations.

THE MAORI OF TODAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

THE MAORI OF TODAY' i By T. F. - . Two vory interesting bits. ot information havo within the. last few months' been received from . New' Zealand. ? One is to the effect that' the Department for Native Affairs has been aboli shed. There .is no longer a native Minister. The otiier intelligence is still more satisfactory. Tawhiao (whooow) — tho chief popularly known 'as the Maori King — has consented to receive a pension of £250 a year from the Government, renouncing, as conditions of his doing so, all claims to the so-called native sovereignty, and promising- to desist from all opposition to the administration of native affairs by the Govern ment of the day. The two statements are signi ficant of tho great change whioh has gradually come over the relations between tho aborigines and the Pakeha (English) settlers and rulers. There is now not even the appearanoe of diver sity of interest between the two peoples. The con querors and the conquered now live side by side, having but one Sov...

AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATION. Before .the Adelaide brannh of the Australian, Natives*! Association, Mr. D. Lindsay, the leader of the late Elder exploration .party, delivered a shortjaddress on exploration. Tho explorer said that he had intended to speak about tho Elder ex pedition, and he had thought that he would have finished with the expedition and been able to make uso of the reports, but as the reports had not yet .been handed over be would touch but lightly upon the expedition of 1891.- He would contrast the' experiences of the earlier explorers in Australia with those of a later date, besides their. equipments and the country to which they passed. . In.tho, early days horses were used, and only bare rations were served. Now, howover, the equipments were changed, and what might be called luxuries were carried. When horses were used water had to be found in advance, for few horde? could go 150 miles, whioh meant throe or four days' travelling, without water. .Horses could carry on a...

SAVING LIFE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

SAVING LIFE AT SEA. Recent disasters will lend immediate interest to the series of illustrations' wo present this month descriptive of various methods by which an effort is made to prevent or minimise the perils of the sua. TUB LIGHTHOUSE. In the present day the majority of light houses depend upon oil as their illuminant. In old times' the first representatives of warning lights on shore may bo supposed to have 'been bonfires, succeeded in their turn by braziers. It is believed that the Colossus of Rhodes held in his upstretohed hnndB a brazier ? in whioh a fire was maintained to guide vessels into the harbor.. His mod or n successor, the Goddess of Liberty, in the harbor of New York, carries an eleotrio, toroh, in virtuallytho samo position that her prototypo is supposed to have 'held his brazier. Candles also played their part in the illumination of lighthouses, . but in modorn days everything has given way to the oil lamp, with very few and isolated exceptions. Of the pro gross ...

INGLETON'S IMPROVED STEAM PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

INGLETON'S IMPROVED STEAM   PLOUGH.   The accompanying cut, which is from a photo-   graph taken while the machine was in operation, represents the rear view of a steam plough de- signed and manufactured by Mr. E. Ingleton, of   Brantford, Canada, an engineer who has had some 18 years' experience in steam cultivation   and steam drainage in England, Germany and Russia, and with every known system. The   apparatus is doing some excellent work, and in not only a working but a commercial success.   As much as three acres per hour have been   ploughed in a most excellent manner, and the average of a day's work may be set down at 20 acres, which is being done at a cost of 45 cents.   per acre.   As will be seen from the engraving, this   plough is an entire departure from everything   yet attempted in steam cultivating machinery, &...

AFFAIRS AT BROKEN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

AFFAIRS AT BROKEN HILL. Events have been developing at Broken Hill, and the arrival of free laborers, with the addi tional reinforcement of police from Sydney on 10th Sept., was tho oooasion of a serious dis turbanoo. In anticipation of attaok the Pro prietary mine was garrisoned by the polios and converted into a kind of temporary fortresB. As a fortification the spot chosen could soarcely have been beaten had it boon specially pro vided for the purpose. There is a - sheer preoipice on the eastern side of the hill, and it is considered very unlikely an 'attack would be made from that quarter, ?whiio on tho western side the hill is so steep that in tho event - of a rush, the attacking force would be fairly done up' long before it could roaoh the top. To use the, words of prominent military., men present, 'It's a lovely spot for defensive purposes ; 200 or 300 men up hero. 'could, hold tho mine against un uitny.'

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

Parliament lias boon in session over four months, and very little progress has boon made with the practical work of legislation. For this barren result so far the Government cannot be held wholly irresponsible Their financial scheme has been . crudely formulated, und in many ? details . does not . . stand' -ciitioism, especially at .the hands, of .their opponents. In addition to this, Mr. Shiols and'his colleagues do not improve --.with political acquaintance. They nr'o cssotitially weak in 'debating power, 'and rdly' for-' countenance upon' the solid vote ot their supporters rather than the moral influenoe and rospoct'of hon. mombcrs, without which no Ministry can hopo'to hold office for any time.

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. A very grave scandal in oonneotion with one J of our publio institutions lias formed the sub jeot of a departmental inquiry at Dunedin dur ing the past month. The industrial school at Oaversham, a suburb of that oity, is one of those reformatorial establishments in the colony to which are consigned destitute children, and ohildren whose patents are not fit to have the oustody' of- them.- -Some of its inmates are also .ohildren. who have been con victed of ? minor, offences, and are sent there for a certain .number of yearn, after whioh they -are hired out, and their earnings are taken oare of until such time as they with draw from the control or supervision of theestab lisbment, arid it often happens that they have a good round sum to their credit when that period arrives.

HOW TO NAVIGATE THE -AIR. Br.HiRAir. S. Maxim. . In disausfling the question of atirial naviga tion, I think wo should first consider what has already beon done before making any sugges tions to tho bedt moans of accomplishing the fact. Tho would-be navigators of the air are now divided into two parties or classes, namely, those who- seek the solution of the problem with . an . apparatus . lighter than the air, and those who believe in its solution with an apparatus heavier than . the. nir. Tho former, in all oases, proposo to uso the bal loon in some form or other, audit may. bo said that very littlo progress has been mado in this line since the days of the Montgolfiers, who were the first to make a balloon sufficiently light to rise in the air. Nono of the recent attempts to navigate the air. by moans of balloons, whatever their shape and size, can be said to be any advance ovor Walloons constructed during tho : last century, becauso none has yet boon made whioh is ' not almost co...
