TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Tlie Secularists of Sydney Lave been active. And their activity has brought into light one or two important points. They requested the Government, through their : representative that the principles of their ride Of life should be embodied in the curri- culum of the Public schools. In other words, they asked for State-aid to their religion. Mr. Thomas Walker was the mouthpiece of the Secularists for this demand. And in this very thing appears the danger which accompanies every movement for reform. Mr. Walker is the worst type of cleric. He bitterly attacks priests and parsons, and their forms of reli- gion, hut in his own line he claims the throne of a Pope, and would oust everyone who differed from him. Mr. Walker draws a screw, just as do the very men he con- demns. It is quite clear from his catechism, recently published in the Sydney press, that Freethought with him means dogmatism straight out. This is impudent humbug. Mr. Walker, the Freethought Theatrical Pa...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
CRICKET. A MATCH came off on the Palmerston Oral on Monday afternoon last between sides Îicked from the Club and described as last and West. The game was played in the presence of His Grace the Duke of Manchester, the Hon. Mr. Parsons, and a good sprinkling of ladies. As the scores below illustrate, it was a most uneven match, the "sun-setters " doing almost as they liked,with both- bat and ball, and fielding in a manner far superior to their opponents. Pattie, Griffiths and McDonald gained the palm in batting, and Pattie, Grat- wick, and Bernard secured thc bowling honours. On the East side no play worthy of special mention was shown in any department of the game, the fielding being especially bad. The match ended in a draw, very suggestive of a one-innings defeat for the "sun-risers." The scores are as under: 1 " WEST. J. A. Pattie, c Bowell, 40; W. G. Grat- wick, b Wedd, 1 ; B. W. Bernard, b Christoe, 0; C. E. Herbert, c Christoe, ll ; W. Griffiths, b Bowell, 30; Q.W. Hughes, c A...

Telegraphic News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) ADELAIDE. AUGUST 21. I The Legislative Assembly have agreed to the Council's amendment of the Northern Territory Justice Bill. The debate on the Treasurer's budget is finished. Bray defended the action of the late Government. It was shown that the excesses were not unusually large, and, besides, that they ¡iccrned through the recent land legislation. The Treasurer was charged with not crediting £16,000 to the accounts of the Territory, which would make the balance far worse. The sculling race between Edward Hoolan, 'bf America, and William Beach, of-Ñew South Wales, was won by the latter by five boat lengths. A foal occurred during the race. Hanlan has admitted his defeat, bnt has challenged Beach to row again. Beach, however, de- clines to pnll again within six months' time. Mr. Grainger, M.P. proposes that a Boyal Commission be appointed to revise the tariff regulations during the recess. Several members are in favour of a beer tax, a...
LOCAL SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
LOCAL SUGAR. ON Tuesday morning last, at the in- vitation of the Hon. Mr. Parsons, a dozen or so of the principal business men of Palmerston assembled at the Residence to view some samples of sugar manufactured at Delissaville from cane grown at the Experimental Garden at Fannie Bay. His Grace the Duke of Manchester was present. The sugars were laid out on a large table in two heaps, one composed of what was classed as No 1 sugar, and the other No. 2. But before going further we may as well refer to the origin of the sugar. As we have mentioned above, the cane from which it was produced was grown at the Government Gardens, under most unfavorable circumstances. 32 tons of cane were cut for the experiment, but it may safely be said that fully two tons were condemned as unfit for crushing, being piped and otherwise unsound. Rather more than half an acre of Creole cane scaled 17 tons out of the total, the balance being obtained from about an acre and a quarter of fourth rattoons. The ca...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
^ht 1¡ÚHU Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AFGOTST 22. As far as our Government are concerned the gold mining interests of the Northern Territory might well sink into oblivion. Instead of doing their utmost to push the industry ahead, they have, with con smhmate foolhardiness, placed every., ob- stacle in the way of its successful developement, principally by taxing the article so hard to procure, and thereby lessening the miner's profite, and also by indiscriminately allowing the Chinese to rush the eyes of the surface deposits, and leave the deep sinking to their pale faced oppositionists, if they cared to undertake the task. Latterly, however, we had legislation brought to bear on us through the indefatigable exertions of a Member whom every Territorian should be proud of that has made the policy of the Government towards gold mining appear in a liberal form-; but not to the extent of which it is deserving. They go to the length of bonusing the dis- coverer of a new field after the co...

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
Scientific. Âs a result of his extensive experience in building compressed air locomotives for European mines, Colonel Beaumont states that one cubic foot of air under a pressure of 1,000 pounds to the square inch will convey a load of three tons a distance of one mile on any of the colliery tracks. The latest fashionable disease in England is a species of asthma, caused by the smell of a horse. The Duchess of Argyll and a son of the I Marquis of Salisbury are among its victims. The fashionable doctor has written that it can only be cured homoepathically by sleeping for a night above a stable, and grinning and bearing the misery without taking any remedy. Professor Clelland, of Glasgow Univer- sity, said in a recent lecture on terminal forms of life, that man was " a terminus "; anatomical evi- dence showed he reached the limit of development in vertebrate life. Hence it was in the last degree improbable that in the future there wonld be a pro- gression in the construction of the hu...

Introduction of Domestic Appliances. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
Introduction of Domestic Ap- pliances. No doubt tliere is a grand opening in these colonies for a firm undertaking the supply of those domestic appli- ances which have marked the inventive epoch of the last ten years in England and America. A few months ago a member of the firm of Chappell & Co., George-street, Faymaket, Sydney, went on a lengthy tour throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and on the Conti- nent, and for the past few months, as a result of that visit, the firm have been receiving a number of the moBt nsefid practical appliances and appointments for house- holds, which once known are bound to find their way into thousand of homes throughout these colonies. Notably among these are the new labour saving washing appliances, ironing, and mangling apparatus. The firm have likewise introduced the latest and simplest pattern ot sewing machine, The Domestic, cheaper and more expeditious than many others. And here reference may be made to the capital system...
Messrs. Geddes, Bros., Wool Scouring Business. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
Messrs. Geddes, Bros., Wool Scouring Business. Now that the advisability of having; our Australian wool placed on the London market under the best appearances and auspices is being generally recognized all over the colonies, it is satisfactory to find colonial enterprise equal to all demands likely to be made in this direction. The arrangements now in complete operation at the four extensive scouring mills at Waterloo and i Botany near Sydney, owned and conducted by Messrs. Geddes, Bros., certainly place them among the best equipped establishments of the kind in Australia; and no doubt with the improved appliances now in operation at each of the four mills, their total capacity is not any I where excelled. The machinery is the latest invented i and the process of'scouring, or the work of general fell I mongery is carried ont both expeditiously and effectively, , and a high and improved appearance is given to any wool thus operated upon. A great feature is the splendid I facility in ...
A MENAGERIE ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 August 1884
A MENAGERIE ON FIRE. The Zoological department of the London Aquarium was destroyed by fire recently. The caretaker, on discovering that the building was on fire, at once gave the alarm, and eight fire engines were soon on the spot and commenced playing on the flames. In the meantime efforts were made to save the animals, whose crys and shrieks were piteous ; but only two Russian bears were rescued, the remainder perishiug in the flames, which ultimately burnt out the entire building. After the flames had been subdued an examination was made. Some portions of the structure, comprisiug one or two cages on the ground floor, were intact, and within them it was said an elk and three bears were confined. These latter animals soon afterwards made their appearance at an iron-barred window looking out upon the thoroughfare running at the rear of the menagerie. These bars had formerly been hidden from the publice gaze by sheets of thick plate-glass but on the arrival of the brigade the firem...
