Death of Dr. Bleasdale. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Death of Dr. Bleasdale. The San Francisco mail has brought news of the death of the Rev. Dr. Bleasdale, previously adminis- trator, in official affairs, for the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne. Dr. Bleasdale was best known, however, for hi3 scientific attainments, and it is said that he was one of the best living authori- ties on the growth of the grape, and on wine making. The information he gathered on these subjects in California was often filtered through the Australian press to the wine growers of these colo- nies, and was of the highest value. He had thoroughly mastered the secret character of the diseases of the vine, and throughout the United States was regarded by vignerons as a most reliable authority on these and kindred subject*. Dr. Bleas- dale does not appear to have got on very well with his church, as he was buried in the German cemetery at San Francisco, according to the rights of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

Mogging—5 Shillings a Stripe. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Mogging-5 Shillings a Stripe. Whea a garotter or an assaulter of female virtue, in Sydney, is in danger of arrest, he skedaddles at once to the nearest medico's, exhibits a palpitating heart, or an excited pulse, and asks for a certificate. A moment's conversation informs the medico that his patient has been guilty of a crime for which he may be flogged. Therenpon a cirtificate is forth- coming at, say, 5s. a stripe saved. This in substance is the dodge by which convicted blacguards at Sydney escape the lash. If the criminal has not had the nous to get the certificate of ill health, he has only to employ a lawyer for the purpose, and the thing is done, or rather not done. It is now known that at least three convicted assaulters have escaped just punishment by means of certificates. Our proposition is that .in all cases where a man is rescued from the lash, his lawyer ought to un- dergo the ceremony.

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. English Money for Australia. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. English Money for Australia. Sir Henry Parkes, the ex-Premier of New South Wales, who left England for Australia on the 2nd August, is said to have made a pile among British capitalists. His visit to England had a twofold object. He had, in the last general elections, been pushed down so deeply in the political mire, and there was the difficulty of an amending Land Law, that it was advisable for him to disappear and await a fresh turn of the wheel. His other business was to advocate, and lend his influence to, the forma- tion of a monetary syndicate of £4,000,000, for operation in New South Walès, Queensland, etc. It is said that already there is about a million of this money at hand in Sydney, and that Sir Henry brings drafts for an additional million. It will be worth while watching how this great syndicate is going to work, whether it will confine its operations to grabbing big landed estates, or whether it will do a thriving trade in political circles. If the ...

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Wit & Humour. When a man falls into the waste basket, he sends poetry to the newspapers. The whole of the colonies have gone in for protection-from Victorian small-pox. The Tiwan, wrecked northward, had on board 21 head of sheep and 15 tail of Chinamen. Extraordinary! The big flood in the Hunter left Eales alive and kicking on dry land. There's a lot of sculling, and a lot of gulling, going on at the Parramatta Uiver just now. A Sydney paper asks-Is black labour a necessity. The editor should go down a coal mine. A Parramatta editor, we see, has been robbed. Extraordinary fact-it took only one man to rob him. We sse Noumea has proclaimed Melbourne an unclean port. This is like proclaiming the kettle black. Business improvement reported from Melbourne-two railway collisions, and several claims alredy sent in. The Tasmanian cable is choked. It ap- pears another crammer for the Sydney EVENING NEWS wac coming along. Latest cable-If the high price of beef continues in the eolonie...

An Interesting Belic. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

An Interesting Belie A good many will remember tbe murder in the Rockhampton district of two mounted troopers by Commissioner Griffin. The trial was watched with the keenest interest all over Australia, and when the full proof of Griffin's iniquity came out, there was a thrill of horror from end to end of the con- tinent. The murderer and robber was duly executed, but scarce had he been laid in his grave, when some dare-devil gentlemen in the neighbour- hood tried their hand at the resurrection business. They opened the coffin and carried off Griffin's head. There was "some" excitement over the affair, and a reward of £100 was offered for the resurrectionists. Not twenty times the amount wonld have got the information. Now, when the whole thing has blown over, and the £100 has gone for a ministerial banquet, or something of the kind, we may give our readers the correct tip. That beautiful skull of Mr. Griffin's is away down at Sydney, in use as a card casket on the " front room" I t...

Two Thousand Stolen Notes. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Two Thousand Stolen Notes. - When two well known Sydney newspaper men were in " quod" at Darlinghurst, some months «go, they fell in with an old hand, who on this occasion had got into the debtor's prison. This old fellow made a confidant of the two journalistic criminals, and related some extraordinary occurrences. His descriptions of the lynching days in San Francisco at the time of the gold discoveries were fearfully startling. Botany Bay men were polished off without much ceremony. But the old man related an in- cident of a Queensland bank robbery which has never been cleared up. In a mining township of North Queensland, where a thriving business was going along, there was a branch of the A.J.S. Bank doing good busines. Suddenly, one evening, the bank took fire, and-and it was soon after discovered that a box containing £2000 was missing. The races were on at the time, and the "oldman" with other thimble-riggers were present, and gambling bad been going on night and day for larg...

Bicycles and Colonial Industry. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Bicycles and Colonial Industry. It is an unquestionable foot that tba Australian public are indebted to the enterprise of Mr. John Danks, the well-known importer of Sydney, for thc impetus given to tho introduction of tho bicycle and trieyle. Three years ago cither of these appliances was a novelty in any of tho big cities of thc group, i but now they ore to be seen right and left, and are ' coming into use by the hundred daily. At first they were looked upon as a toy, but the mechanical skill of the time has so improved them that they havo be- come a grand means of locomotion in all branches of outside business. This is particularly the case with the tricycle, which has reached the highest stage of perfection at the Coventry (Singer) Manufacturing Works in England, and in this description of cyclo. Mr. Danks, who is tho solo importer, is almost un- able to meet the demand. Tho Coventry bicycle or tricycle is remarkable for its lightness, while having its working parts of tho finest...

The Wool and Produce Business in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

The Wool and Produce Busi- ness in Sydney. It is well known all over the Australasian colonies that there hns been a great waking-up in the wool business and general produce agency in the metropolis of N.S.W. And it is not denied that this splendid result is in no small degree attributable to the infusion of new blood, or the competition of new firms in a scale of some magnitude. It is a widely-admitted fact that Sydney, destined by Nature as a great entrepôt, lost a tremendous lot of ground as a wool market and shipping port, owing to'want of local activity ; while another well-known city was making gigantic efforts to win and retain greater trade. It re- quired at Sydney a big effort to regain what was lost : but it is satisfactory to find that the city is fast recovering its former prestige. Colossal wool warehouses, branches of other large firms, are rearing their heads on the shores of Port Jackson, and the next few years will sec au enor- mous development of trade. The Kew Zea...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. It has been discovered that a set of torpedo gear of the value of £500, sent from London to Portsmouth Dockyard on April 14, has never heen seen or heard of since, and all trace of it is lost. An affray between poachers and watchers took place on Teamer Moor, Lord Londesborough's eatate, near Scarborough, on June 12, and a watcher, named George Newton, was shot. He is now lying in a precarious state. Frank Pearson, a notorious poacher, is in custody charged with shooting with malicious intent. The effect of the London explosions, a New York correspondent says, is very perceptible on the IBISH WORLD'S Emergency Fund. The contri- butions for the week are £100 against £52 for last week. The paper is more incendiary than ever. It publishes a diagram of London, with the scenes of the explosions, and comments jubilantly upon thc success of the dynamite war. Recent thunderstorms have been attended in Gloucestershire England, with serious con- sequence. At Hartbury a farmer l...

Farmer & Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Farmer & Grazier. Flowers of sulphur, blown on with a bellows is a cure for rust in celery, just as it is with mildew in grapes. Give fowls intended for breeders a free range until planting time at least. This will keep them in a thrifty healthy condition, and prevent an accumulation of fat. A large percentage of eggs will hatch, and the chickens will be stronger and get a better start. Horses should not be turned out at night. A cold rain mty bring on troubles which are difficult to cnre at this time of year. If horses are unavoidably drenched, rub them dry as soon as possible, and cover with blankets. Horses need to go through the winter in' good health. Save large, finely-coloured eggs for hatching ; it pays well to choose the best product of the hens for improvement of fv.tnre stock, as in» saving seeds from the best vegetables and flowers. If the best layers, and the layers of best eggs are chosen from year to year, the poultry stock will greatly improve. The average yi...

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Scientific. Italy offers a prize of £500 for a practical process for the transmission of electrical energy. A paper chimney fifty feet high has lately been put np at Breslau. Compressed paper pulp is stated to be one of the least inflammable of sub- stances, and make an excellent material for fireproof doors. Two cases have been reported to the English medical society in which the electro-magnet has been successfully nsed for removing pieces of iron from the eye. Without the magnet it is thought that the sight of the injured eye must have been lost in each case. Professor Landolt exhibited a ? solid cylinder of carbonic acid at the Berlin Physical Society, which he had made an hour before. The flakes of solid carbonic acid were hammered in a cylindrical vessel into a solid cylinder. Tie solid gas could be touched by a hand. It resembled common chalk.

Another Shipment of American Buggies. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

Another Shipment of American Buggies. I - There ia no doubt that competition is the.life of trade and the soul of improvement. Hence the intro- duction of American buggies to Australia, while being of substantial benefit to tho public, has pushed on our colonial manufacturers to adopt the latest improvements and imitate the Ught-running yet great durable qualities of the renowned American makers ; and these buggies continue to bo largely imported, as their thorough adaptability to rough colonial usage is everywhere being experienced. Tho Australian public are undoubtedly indebted in a principal measure for this advantage to the enteprise of the leading American honse in the colonies, Messrs. Barron, Moxham, and Co. And one word jost here to the general representative character of this well known firm. The trading connection of this house with the metropolitan and inland public of Australia has been thoroughly typical of the solidity and enterprise of American industry and wealth, an...

"THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT." [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

"THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT." After ber husband left home for his work, April 26, Mrs. Amelia Barnet, wife of David Barnet, living in Phillisburg, N.J., called her three-year-old son Willie, who was at a neighbour's house, to come home. The innocent lad obeyed. When inside the door, Mrs. Barnet locked all the doors and whipped out a razor and cut his throat from ear to ear, nearly severing the head from the body. She then took the instant, lifeless body and threw it on the bed near by. Rushing up stairs, and seizing her five-months'-old baby, she threw it on the bed beside the murdered boy and slashed its throat in a terrible manner, causing almost death. When she had completed the terrible butchery of her innocent children, she raised one of the windows and shrieked at the top of her voice. This attracted the neighbours, and a rush was made for the house. When they reached the door Mrs. Barnet stood on the inside and unlocked it, and immediately drew the razor across her own throat, i...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL SMALL-POX SCOURAGE IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL -? SMALL-POX SCOURAGE IN LONDON. Daily reports give an increase in the cases of small-pox in London ; the number of deaths arising from this cause in the metro- polis, the hospital-ship Atlas, and the convalescent camp at Darenth amounting to sixty the week before last (15th) while the number of patients in the Metropolitan Asylum Hospitals had risen at the same date to very nearly 1100. As one-fourth of these sixty fatal cases occurred in private dwellings, we may roughly estimate that the 'whole hst of patients would have exceeded 1850 in the metropolis alone. At present, Hackney seemed to be the district most affected; but previous experience has shown that an epidemic of this kind is not to be kept within the bounds of a borough, and is even found to cross the Thames with sur- prising rapidity. Considerable activity has already been shown in the East-end towards providing suitable places of reception for all removable cases, and also in facing the possibi...

PALMERSTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884

PALMERSTON RACES. . THE third annual meeting of the INrpthern Territory Racing Club came off to-day,'under the most favor- able circumstances that could have been desired. The attendance was - large, and the weather, for this time of the year, was as though "made to order/' being fine, and only mild in temperature. Boats and buggies . conveyed the public to the course, and we may as well here mention that those who went out in the launch Znlieka expressed themselves as very well pleased with the punc- tuality observed; we may also men- tion that some of those who came nome in her would rather have the coast minns its mnd flats, which are not at all good trampings. Having to walk a half-mile or so over one is ' very apt to lower the spirits of even the most fortunate on race day. With landsmen the principal cause of discontent was the dust ; but that was only to he expected. As regards the course we may say that we have Been many better in our rambles, but very'few worse.

All the ground in the vicinity is secured. News has been received that severe fighting took place on August 6th between the Zulu chief Montioa and the Boers. The engagement was of a desperate and sanguinary character, and many were killed, several Englishmen having been among the victims. The Boers were eventually defeated and had to retire from the field. About forty teams are now leaving Silverton, there not being nearly suffi- cient ore procurable to keep them going. The Bangor state quarries, near Willunga, (S.A.,) are to be restarted shortly.
