JUSTICE BURLESQUED IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

JUSTICE BURLESQUED IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. Many persons doubtless were astonished at the Port Darwin telegram, which appeared in last week's issue, announcing that at the Palmerston sessions the Government 'Resident, acting as Judge, had taken upon himself to sentence four aboriginal natives to various terms of imprisonment, ranging from ten years to life, for the crime of murder. Of course every intelligent child six or seven years of age knows that by the English law the punishment for wilful murder is death, and about equally general is the knowledge that a judge hai no power legally to prouounce a lighter sentence for that heinous offence. It is for the judge to -sentence and for the Crown in the exercise of the prerogative of mercy to mitigate the punishment should sufficient cause be shown for such clemency. But the Government Resident in the Northern Territory cannot legally try a prisoner for any offence for which the punishment awarded by the law is death, and consequent...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We destroy letters unaccompanied by tbe real rame and address of the writer, which are required sot necessarily for publication bat as a guarantee of good faith. Old Railway Sebvakt sends us a letter on the subject of reform in the management of our railways. He contends that ' nothing has been shown to justify tte attempt to out down the wages of the hard- worked porters, while the beads of departments, with their rising scale, remain untouched. One thing (he says) is cer tain—the Government must have the services of an efficient, practical, and experienced general traffic manager, pay him a good salary, and place him beyond tbe caprice of the Minister. The goods department can be worked at least S5 per cent, under its present expenses.' 'Old Railway Servant' writes on both sides of the paper, which is contrary to our rule. Victobian writes : — 'During the recent con troversy about free trade and protection one of your correspondents informed your readers that ag...

Poultry. LA FLECHE FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

[?] LA FLEGIIE FOWLS. This is a breed, of fowls which has ba come very popular iu France of late, and its merits as a table variety are said, to ba unequalled by any other. The following paiticulars respecting these fowls, and ths mode of fattening them gensrally adopted in France, are taken from the Poulatiicr. a paper devoted to poultry matters: — When fully grown the cocks weighs from 7i lbs. to 9 lbs , the hens from 6i lbs. to 7i lbs. These weights are those of ths fowls of full age, aa they run in the yard. These choice table fowis were originally produced at Mans, later at Mezeray, and linally at La Fieclie. Theitsdustry has long fciuce been abandoned, at the lirst-nuuied place, it is declining at tbe second, and it is only at La Flecbe and the neighboring municipalities that it is still fully main tained, The La Flec&e fowl, so well adapted for fattening', are very robust, aud but raiely eick.

NOTES FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

NOTES FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. _lhe Scarlet Stoneciop (Sedum semper viToides), a true biennial, ia the subject of the colored plate in the -?ar-fenfor April 2. In the issue for April 9 the colored plate depicts a familiar Bower, the large rosy Calandrinia C. Grandiflora. Canon Hole has devoted his 'Garden Thoughts' to some consideration of his fa vorite flower the Rose, about which he says : 'I still maintain that for man v if not mast sorts the Brier,'f rom seed or cuttiass, is the ueet stock ror ™ xvosa ; seven-eighths of my trees are so grown, and I hope to bud 2,000 seedling Briers in July. But we have only just begun to try the Rose with out any stock at all, and my belief is that our beginning justifies the anticipation that this independent form . of cultivation will ultimately prove the most popular and suc cessful of all. My advice is that Rosarians should give the process & . trial, together with other forms of cultivation, and judge for themselves. I am too old to...
