Wardenship of Goldfields. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

Wardenship of Goldfields. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Certain indviduals in me Northern Territory favored me with their special .notice during , the time I held the ^ position of r" AVarden of Goldfields, circulating by means of your paper and their agents on the reefs reports that I was the ** Nominee of Adelaide Capita« lists," the "Agent for South Aus- tralian Gold Mining Companys," that ** Promoters' Shares " had been given me. Notices were posted on the fields, evidently with the inten- tion of insulting me, and causing others to do the same ; in fact, every «¡fort was made to get up a feeling against me. I am happy to say that in this ** Certain Individuals" failed ; -- and, further to add, thac during the the whole time I held the position of Warden I never received an insult from a man on the fields» The only insult ever offered me was from a man in ihe pay of the public, whose " little game ' I was called upon to stop. Permit me now, Mr. Editor, be- fore leaving the Northern Territo...

Christian Burial. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

Christian Burial. TO THE EDITOR, Sir-It has been represented to me that a poor man named Charles Edwin Niel - an Episcopalian--whom I visited in the Hospital, and-who died in the faith of Christ last Tuesday evening, has been taken out to the Cemetery and buried as we would bury a dog without the last rites of our religion. Learning at 12 p.m. on Tuesday from Mr. McGuire that Neil was dead and thinking that possibly my services might be required at the Cemetery, I asked, "When does the burial take place ? " He replied, "Sometime to-morrow, but those making arrangements will no doubt let you know the time. I remained at home purposely during the whole of Wednesday, expecting some intimation of the time, and receiving none concluded that the Lay Reader was officiating as he occasionally does. On whom the responsibility rests know not ; but some one is surely responsible for what I must regard as, to say the least of it, a most gross and shameful outrage on Christian decency. I am, Sir...

Bush Literature. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

Bush Literatura. Judging from the diary of Mr. Ernest Giles, he is a great thinker and a bad sleeper, which may account perhaps for his want of success as an explorer. He is also very sentimen- tal. Nearly every page of his diary contains a quotation from one or other of the poets, which is rather unusual. In fact, he can moralise in the most lovely strain about anv trifle, and could no doubt, if he liked, emulate that celebrated author who could " write elegantly about a broom- stick." Mr. Giles, for instance, sees a black boy sleeping on the ground, and he goes off at once in the follow- ing strain :-" I could not help mora- lising (as I stood near him, wondering at his peace and placidity) upon the difference of our mental and physical conditions : here was one human being, young and strong certainly, but as stupid as an owl, without an iota of brain power, sleeping away the dreary hours of night, regaining that necessary vigor for the toils of the coming day totally oblivious to...

LAW COURTS. POLICE COURT-PALMERSTON. Thursday, November 26. ¿Before Mr. E» W. Price, S.M.) Serang Batjoe, a Malay fisherman, was charged with feloniously shooting at one Jeremiah Mai, for the purpose of doing lum some grievous bodily harm, at Pal meraton on the 23rd November. It appeared from the evidence that the two Malays'quarrelled at prisoner's hut, 'where, after ordering the prosecutor out* lie tired a revolver at him. The bullet passed 'through the bark wall of the hut. and nearly struck prosecutor as he was standing outside. In the evening the prosecutor went to the hut again, and the prisoner threatened to shout him, and pointed the revolver at him. It also appeared that bullet marks were found on the ground, close by. Prisoner, who denied wishing to injure the prosecutor, was bound over to keep .the peace for:six months.

COUNTRY CORRESPONDENCE. STAPLETON. (From a Correspondent.) November 24. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

COUNTRY CORRESPONDENCE. STAPLETON. (From a Correspondent.) November 24. The Virginia machinery is getting on apace, and will most likely be ready lor a preliminary turn under steam in another fortnight. Very good stone is being raised to enable the battery to keep at work for some time after a start is made. ' Not a little surprise was felt here the other day on reading in the notice column of the Mining Commission, that a certain person had given notice of application for a lease of No. 7 north., Virginia Reef, and finding the posts and plates bearing the said person's name, coupled with that of a very learned scholar, on No. 5 claim. That such a ruse was made use of to mislead there cannot be the shadow of a doubt, but as one oí the shareholders is held as a species ot universal genius, and the other a doctor, strong in L's and Arts, we may have a key to some great secret in the administration of the mining laws. Some people have " ways of their own, and peculiar," when com- pared...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. Mr. Anthony's letter, about a case which was heard in the Local Court lost February, is written tinder some misapprehension. If there was blame in that case it would belong to Dr. Ellison, who was Special Magistrate at the time, and not to Mr. Conner, who wat merely a Justice of the Peace ex-qjfich, and who cannot be regarded as being responsible for the decision or its consequences. E. W.-Of course it is actionable to charge a Government Officer with embezzle- ment. If yott doubt it, you had better try.

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, NOV. 28, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

JWhifttt S^rritcrg ®imts. Palmerston î Saturday, Nov. 28,1874. Since the departure of the Atjeh's mail very little has occurred to dis- turb the quietude of the Northern Territory. "Liquidation" has been the order-of the day throughout a great portion of the minino; district, and there is now quite an exodus of " Captains " and Managers, who are going away by the Gothenburg to explain, as best they can in the other colonies, how they have failed and why they have failed. In the meantime a few enterprising pros- pectors are busy with the promising quartz reef claims which haVe been discovered at the Union and Pine Creek ; and several companies in other localities are working well. They promise some early crushings and good yields of gold, and are there- fore looked to as the means by which the "country is to be saved." Un- doubtedly a great deal depends on these promised crushings. If they turn out anything like what is ex- pected, the rapid progress of the Northern Territory is secu...

Overland Mail to Port Darwin. (From Parliamentary Proceedings.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 28 November 1874

Overland Mail to Port Darwin. (From Parliamentary Proceedings.) Mr. Carr moved-"That in me opinion jtthis House a monthly over- land mail should be sent to and from Adelaide and Port Darwin." He thought if the motion were carried it would pave the way for a transcon- tinental railway. The work should be carried out in the same manner in which these things were done in America. He thought that in the interior of the colony the Govern- ment should do the work, as they had greater resources than any con- tractor could have. The work should be carried on in connection with the existing telegraph line, by doubling the number of stations, so as to make them but ioo miles apart, instead of 200 as at present. Thus a less defensive torce would be neces- sary, and a very little extra perma- nent staff would be required, Mr. Pearce seconded the motion, and was of opinion that this could be done for a limited outlay. Having communication by sea would not meet the case of those at she Tele- grap...

The Gothenburg has made several voyages to the Northern Territory indeed she is quite a veteran in the service, and her Captain, Mr. Pearce, has made many friends in the settlement 1 -but this is the first trip the ship has 1 made as tho accredited mail steamer of the South Australian Government. Much surprise was cause i by the announcement than the Netherlands Steam Navigation Company had relinquished the idea of , establishing a circumnavigating mail ser- vice between Batavia and Singapore and the Australian Colonies, and although | they must, be supposed to know best it | would certainly appear somewhat prema- ture to abandon a project which seemed likely to prove remunerative when fairly launched. The Company could hardly have expected to have fully developed their project, or to have given the Aus- tralian merchants a fair opportunity of weighing the advantages in a commercial sense of opening up a direct...
