Death of the Flying Man. (From the London Daily Telegraph, July 3.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1874

Death of the Flying Man. (From the London Daily Telegraph, July 3.) It was announced yesterday that, at half-past 7 p.m., M. de Groof, the " Flying Man," would repeat at the Cremorne-gardens "his astounding performance of flying through the air a distance of 5,000ft." True to this announcement, the flying man did endeavour to repeat the exploit which he had accomplished in safety io days before, and perished in the attempt. M. de Groof was a Belgian, who had expended years in con- structing for himself an apparatus with which he believed it possible to imitate the fright of a bird. The general outline of this apparatus was in imitation of a bat's wings, the framework being* made of cane, and the intervening membrances of stout waterproof silk. The wings were in all 37ft. long, with an average breadth of 4ft., while the tail was 18ft. by 3ft. These wings were in- serted into two hinged frames that were attached to a wooden stand upon which the aeronaut took his place. Here he had thr...

The Chinese Coolies. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1874

The Chinese Coolies. TO THE EDJTOit. Sir-I have noticed lately several para- graphs and éditerai comments in your paper on the treatment that the coolies are said to have received from the various Companies to whom they have boen assigned by the Government, in which it is taken for granted that the conduct of the Managers of the Companies lias boen most inhuman ; whi'e some of your more sentimental correspondents, who would sprinkle rosewater over a load, make touching references to the days of Dred and Uncle Tom's Cabin. As the Press and the public appear un- willing to await tlie result of the Govern- ment enquiry before expressing their opinions on the subject, I think I may fairly ask you to allow me some portion of your space to point out the inaccuracies of some of these published statements^ and represent the facts as they are known to thode most conversant with them. The coolies have been well housed, weil fed, and had proper medical at- tendance. Until Dr. Guy left he at- t...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, NOV. 14, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1874

Itortimit Sw¡rritarg Urnes. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, ÎTOV. 14,1874. THE Police Court liad another " field day" with the coolies on Wednesday, and the result was that the magistrate found the case against Mr. Simpson proved. Ile therefore ordered that the agreement botween him and his coolies should be cancelled, and directed that he should pay the cost of the proceeding's. Mr. Simpson and his witnesses showed that more food had been suppiied than the coolies had stated. But the total quantity, even at the highest estimate, was not much as it ought to have been ; and the defendant rather weakened his own case by putting* in a dietary scale, which was sworn to be in Dr. Guy's handwriting' (with the excep- tion of the last line), and which is as follows : " For each coolie daily. (Total for 14.) lib. of rice 141bs. ^îb. vegetables 4H>3. Jib. salt fish 4ÜK Kugar Scale fixed by Dr. Guy and supplied." It is true the witnesses stated that this scale had not been adhered to, and that more f...

The Sonthais. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1874

The aontnais. We find in the English Independent the following particulars concerning the people who are proposing to emi- grate from India to Australia. The speaker is Mr. Hans Skresfrud, who has been living as a missionary among the Sonthals. He says : " You are aware that India is peopled with two distinct races-the Hindoos and the Aborigines. About the Hindoos 1 have nothing to say ; it is a people called the Sonthalese, belonging to the race of Aborigines, that I intend to speak about to-night. These Sonthals, according lo their own traditions, come from x\rmenia, from the Mount Haratta, or Hara-a place where two human beings were saved from the flood, and that they afterwards took an easterly direction and came to Iran, afterwards to Candahar, then to Chinese Tartary, and then to the Champa with the seven rivers, which is the present Punjab. There, they say, their insti- tutions were formed, and there they lived for ages in great prosperity ; and, moreover, they say that befor...

COUNTRY CORRESPONDENCE. UNION, [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1874

COUNTRY COÄBESPOSDEITCE. UNION, The Rev. Mr. Bogle, from Pal- merston, held service in Captain Laity's store on Thursday evening last. About 30 persons attended and listened with attention and respect to his earnest and persuasive discourse. He is evidently sincere and truthful in his mission and labors for the salvation of his fellow creatures, and is esteemed and respected by all classes in consequence. Warden Plunkett, from the Shackle, attended and held his first Court at the Union on Wednesday last. The evidence required in several lease applications was taken ; and it is Mr. Plunketts intention to hold a Court here the last Wednesday in every month when practicable. This is a step in the right direction, and it should have been done long since. It will now enable the diggers and mining community to contine them- selves more fully to working their claims, and be the saving to them of scores of pounds that they Avould have been otherwise compelled to spend and falter away in tra...

Magistrates in the Country. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It is from painful necessity that I am urged to furnish you with matters here at the Shackle with reference to the powers vested in the Warden. An assault was committed by a disreputable character upon a per- son in presence of a witness without the slig-htest provocation. After- wards the party assaulted applied to the Warden for an information against the person ; but, to his as- tonishment, he was told by the Warden that it was not he who had to hear such cases, but referred me to Dr. Houston. I applied to him, but he referred me to the Warden again. I remarked to the Warden that I labored under the belief that his position and appointment was to sit and hear cases coming under the Statute Laws of South Australia. Still he allirmed that the Govern- ment had not supplied him with any forms tor that purpose, and when he had heard such cases he had written out a form, but this he would not grant to the person so assaulted. I submit the ...
