The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 15. THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

I FBIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 16. THINGS AND OTHERS. MB. A. P. BAINES, Secretary of the , Palmerston Institute, informs ns that another batch of new books haye arrived for, the library, and will be pat on the j shelves as soon as possible. THE schooner Dairymaid left last week for the Roper River with store goods Ac. for Messrs. Hay <fc Co's, dépôt, and should be there in a few week's time. THERE is every prospect of an early wet season this year. The south-east winds - are becoming less troublesome, and on Thursday morning just enough rain fell to swear by. The thermometer is daily showing higher records. THE Chinaman who fell off the scaffold- ing at the new Government buildings on the Esplanade a fortnight ago expired on Friday night last from the internal injuries received.. , MB. O. ? F. C.

PALMERSTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

PALMERSTON RACES. Tire following are the nominations for the Palmerston Cup : Dr. R. J. Morice's b h Kettledrum, 6 years Mr. F. Merck's b g Liberty, aged Mr. J. A. "V. Brown's b g Greatheart, aged. Mr. E. Marker's ch g Barefoot, aged. The weights are as under : st. lbs. Kettledrum... . 10 1 Liberty]. 9 5 Greatheart . 8 12 Barefoot . 8 9 It is rather unsatisfactory to notice only four entries for the big prize, but as a rule at small meetings the lesser stakes call forth the largest fields. The four entered, however, are the right horses in the right place. Looking at Kettledrum's last year's performance, it was only fair to expect that the handi- cappers would place him at the head of the poll, and,-considering that Liberty is a Brisbane Cup winner, and has run some very good firsts and seconds in the same city, he had more call for second place than Mr. Brown's horse. Great heart, according to performances, has a right to occupy third position and con- cede at least the 31bs to Bar...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. : 1500 rainers recently went oafbn strike at Erewash Valley, E., resisting a reduc- tion of 2s. per week. It is stated that the liabilities of the firm of Grant and Ward to the Marine National Bank amount to between £100,000 and £200,000. Messers. Leitch, Patten, and Go., sugar brokers, of Glasgow, have suspended pay- j ment, the liabilities being estimated at nearly £100,000. The Senorine, French brig, with a crew of nine, and 53 passengers, went to the bottom with .all hands, off the Canadian coast, May 23. In the Senate Mr. Edmunds introduced a Bill for placing General Grant on the re- tired list of the army, remarking that the reasons for the measune were obvious. The Engineers at Sunderland, haye been on strike now eleven 'months. Over £450 a week has been contributed for their sup- port. It is the largest strike on record, and is still unsettled. Six of a family of seven persons haw been barbarously murdered in the townof Bnczacz in Galicia, the only one who esc...

AN AVENGER KILLS HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

AN AVENGER SILLS HIMSELF. The shocking Conkling-Uhier-Haver stick tragedy was recalled, May 15, when the news reached New York of the death at San Francisco of George W. Conkling, the brother who shot and killed the man for whom his sister had deserted her husband. All the actors in the tragedy except J. Clement Uhler, the woman's husband, are I now dead. He is living with his children I in New Jersey. Mrs. Uhler, on February 14, followed to the grave the man for whom she had sacrified all that was worth living for. The cause of her death was an over- dose of morphine, self-administered. The original tragedy took place in March, 1883, at the Paris flats, No. 341 West Twenty third street. There Mrs. Uhler, the wife of a California mining speculator, lived in illicit relations with Wilbur H. Haverstick, her husband's former partner. George Conkling, the woman's brother, attempted to induce her to leave Haverstck and go to her mother in the West. In furtherance of his purpose he visite...

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Woman Items. . Birds are still worn for hat ornaments, but care snoura oe uü^~to navFthe little creatures' throats incased in red flannel. The effect is very fine. A muff is defined as " a thing which holds a girl's hand and don't squeeze it." Correct, and any fellow is "a muff" who will hold a girl's hand without squeezing it. " I don't see the bell," said a handsome woman at the front door of a house, to an Irishman shovelling coal. "Faith mam, an' ye wad though av ye were to luck in the glass." An Irish woman wanted £10,000 from a man who kissed her three thousand times, and an Irish jury gave her £6000. The man who strikes a woman cold blooded enough to keep tally on kisses deserves unlimited sympathy. A question for puzzle solvers :-" In waltzing with a young lady not over seventeen years, pretty and one of the never-get-dizzy sort, does the young man go around the lady, or does the young lady go around the young man ?" " I have a fearful sore throat this evening, Adolphus," sa...

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Personal. . . George Augustus Sala, the author, is coming to Australia. We suppose he'll bring either his coffin or his crutches. ^-Chadee Bright, the fraathoughi lecturer, is returning to Sydney. He displaces* Dr. Hoghes at the Theatre Boyal on Sunday nights. Ferdinand Ward, virtually 'parter of Général Grant in the banking business which col- lapsed a few weeks ago, has been arrested for em- bezzlement, and committed for trial at New York. Bass, the Great English Portergaff/died worth £1,800,000. How many dead men and ruined homes does this little sum represent? No matter, if the old brewer has gone to his reward, let's hope it's Bass-relief. The divorce proceedings affecting a family of standing in Sydney, and in which an influential clergyman is said to be involved, have been renewed. It is yet hoped, however, some arrange- ments will be made to prevent the court being ap- pealed to. It is said Jem Keene, the American speculator, notwithstanding his failure, made £200,000 daring...

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

Wit & Humour. The name of the greatest bank cracker and garotter in the United States is Good. The Hunter Biver people who grumble about the flood, should think cf poor Venice. More justice-this time at Melbourne. Another doctor has taken his own life. Lugg is the name of the leading Sydney dentist. He has made a fortune with his name. The Sydney EVENING NEWS is always running down trams. Hence it's a tram pro-motor. The ROMAN FREE PRESS, we see, has been started in Brisbane. Salvation and 10 per cent, combined no donbt. ' Refined sugar making-£12,000 apiece, drawn annually by the members of the Colonial Sugar Refining Company. Nice life a married man leads when every ti vue he asks his wife for a cup of tea he knows she'll make it hot for him. The youngster says the difference be- tween a hill and a pill is, one is hard to get up and the other is hard to get down. It is asserted that it was a Foreigner who, when up in a balloon, yelled : "Be jabèrs, if yez don't let it down...

The Outrage in Darlighurst Gaol. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

The Outrage in Darlinghurst Gaol. Farther particulars of the outrage in Darlinghurst Gaol show that Quinlan fully intended to murder the warder Elliott. The latter, it appears, had with another warder been conversing with the prisoner only fifteen minutes previously, and had walked to another part of the gaol. Thither Quinlan fol- lowed him, and, asking him to step into a corridor directed him to look towards the roof at an apparent defect. Having thus diverted his attention, the scoundrel raised an iron bar, which he had secretly held at his side, and assaulted the warder. Elliott raised his arm as protection, and the blow falling on his hand broke it between the knuckles and the wrist. With double savagery Quinlan made another blow with the iron, and, striking Elliott on the head, felled him to the ground, and while there assaulted him again. At this moment assistance arrived, and Quinlan was secured. Elliott, besides suffering from several special injuries, has sustained a very s...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. TWO COURTLY CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 August 1884

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. TWO COURTLY CRIMINALS. A late English paper speaks ont in these terms :-There are certain offences which, however severly punished, can never be forgotten or forgiven. The friends of ex- Colonel Valentine Baker, and of his Serene Highness Prince Leiningen, would do well to bear this in mind. The former was convicted of a most brutal, ruffianly, and dastardly attack upon a helpless young lady, who nearly lost her life in endeavour- ing to escape from the libidinous advances and attacks of her fellow traveller. The latter, who is an admiral in the English navy, has been shelved for years through the circumstance of having, when in command of the Queen's yacht, displayed the utmost imbecility and incapacity by running down, in a calm sea and clear weather, a sailing schooner, sinking her, and drowning three persons on board. Now we contend that these offences, however different their natnre and however severely they have been dealt with, should for ever prevent...

Paying Through the Nose, [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884

Paying Through the Kose, In Brisbane a movement for the purpose of finan- cially bettering the position of the State school teachers has been well received by the Government. It is generally admitted that the pay is poor. In New South Wales, however, there is a certainty of retrenchment in this direction. While the older or experienced tutor does not appear to be overpaid, the salaries of the younger members of the profes- sion are considered by many in Parliament to be absurdly high. The New South Wales Government have already intimated their intention of cutting down the expenditure for school buildings. A fear- fully costly style of building has been adopted. Bound about Sydney they are like palaces, and many a contractor has quietly made his pile by the job. The country has certainly been plundered. By the way the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD has been groping in the dark as to how this costly system i originated. Nearly a dozen different causes are mentioned by that journal. The real o...

An Immoral Prison. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884

ATV Tm m oral Frison. Everyone in Australia will feel pained to hear from the criminals of Pentridge prison, a complaint that the wrong men are in quod-in other words, that the warders and officials of that national in- stitution of Victoria are continually guilty of very bad conduct. The charges, to mention the lightest of them, are those of drunkenness, and conniving at profitable communication between the prisoners and their friends, who are outside the gaol. Mr. Castieau, the Governor of Pentridge, has been sus- pended, and another officer appointed in his place, to ensure an unbiassed investigation into the whole of the charges. It is not improbable that the reports are well founded. There is a Kew South Wales gaol, we are privately informed, where two or three of the prisoners are allowed their liberty for a day or more to see some friends or do a private job ; and not only are the prisoners kept posted in all current events, but are supplied with rum, the EVENING NEWS, and ot...

Earning a £5000 Reward. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884

Earning a £5000 Beward. The reward of £5000 offered by the United States Government for the recovery of all or one of the survivors of the Greely Arctic Expedition, has been duly earned by the party who recently started in search of them. The unfortunate fellows had suf- fered terrible privations, but had not reached near enough to'.the pole to apply a little grease. The res- cuing vessel, the Alert, was presented by the British Government to the States for the purpose of the expedition, and a very strange incident occurred the day she steamed out of New York harbour, on her almost hopeless mission of mercy. The last sur- vivor of the Jeannette party, Boatswain Cole, died the very same day a raving madman in a lunatic asylumn. It will be remembed how his mates died -how they were found in the regions of eternal snow, some standing erect for ever still, others with their anns raised erect from their icy couch, others again with eyes open and a fixed frozen stare on a horizon over whi...

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The Ravages of Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The Eavages of Cholera. Day by day the cable tells a tale of death wrought by that most fearful foe of humanity, cholera. At Marseilles and Toulon, in France, it is as fatal as a fighting king-. The average death-rate ranges be- tween 75 and 95, and a panic having occurred, the greatest difficulty is being experienced to enforce official regulations. On the 10th the whole of Aus- tralia was startled with the news that the fell destroyer had reached Liverpool, England, and that two deaths had occurred there. It is to be hoped the news is not true, but if true, that the operations of the scourge will be " scotched." We note these facts, so that people in these colonies may be on their guard. There is a natural robustness of con- stitution in the Australian people. No one starves on our soil. In England, France, and Europe generally, pale Death, when he does take his sickle, finds a harvest ripened by disease, oppression, and starvation. Still, the Australian climate...
