Notice. DEAR SIR-Having heard it rommonly reported that Mr. Cox thinks very lightly of your great kindness in returning from Abrams' Billabong to the Roper Depot with rations for the relief of Cox and party, Mr. Cox stating that he did not require assistance, we, the under^gnei members of the Party now in Palmerston, beg to contradiet that statement, and to offer our most sincere thanks for your kindness, feeling quite certain that without your assis- tance, in the state of weakness from want of food, and theb ad condition of our horses, we should (some of us, at any rate) not have been able to reach the Katherine Station.

The Attempted Assassination of Prince Bismarck. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1874

The Attempted Assassination! of Prince Bismarck The German Chancellor had not been long at Kissingen-a Bavarian watering* place-when, as he drove out one day to the baths in an open carriage, a man shot at him. The ball grazed his wrist and passed over his head. But for striking the button of his glove, it might have got too close to the Prince's cranium, and there would have been a crisis in the young empire. When the bystanders had recovered from their alarm, they first- rushed to the Prince's carriage, and finding him alive, they faced about after the miscreant who had fired the pistol. He had promptly fled over the bridge ; but the opera singer, Herr Lederer, outran him and laid strong hands upon him. In a twinkling the fellow was sur- rounded, and had the Bavarin gendarmes not been a little smarter than usual, he would have been run up at the nearest lamppost. They hustled him through the crowd, and pulled him, half^dead with 1 right, into the police-station. Shortly afterwards...

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Correspondent.) Adelaide, November 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1874

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Correspondent..) Adelaide, November 4. The money voted for the carrying out of public works and building; will, or ought to, give addition^ satisfaction to all those who confi- dently expect the Northern Territon to weather the disasters which ha/« hitherto attended it, and enter upoi a course of high prosperity in thf future. I do contess-as 1 have don« previously-that notwithstanding th< series of misadventures which hav« characterised the early settlement o the Northern Territory, and notwith- standing the alarming collapse o gold mining companies which wer« tormed upon insufficient and un reliable data, the resources ol youl settlement give high promise in th. future. If South Australian cipita will not be sent to open up th auriferous resources of the 'TVrritor; theic is not the smallest doubt, 1 i think, that at no distant date capital from other quarters will flow in which shall be instrumental in open- ing up the country, not alo...

Overland from Townsville to Port Darwin. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1874

Overland from Townsville to Port Darwin. By George de Lautour. I feel certain that a sketch of my trip from Townsville to Port Darwin (distance 1,800 miles) will be interesting to many of your readers, and also to overlander«. I left Townsville on August 19th ; but I made my final Btart from Mary Vale Station (Mr. Hains', Burdekin River) on the 1st September, 1873. My party consisted of self, William Nation, Henry Seward, and Alfred Butcher. From Mary Val« I took a supply of rations for three months ; and laid in another stock of three months at Normanton. Went across country to Messrs. Anning Bros. Station at the Flinders River, and followed the Flinders down for 200 miles to the Mount Brown Crossing. I started from Mclntyre'a Station Dungonolly Creek, Clocnurry River, on the 6th of October, 1873, with 100 head of fat cattle and 21 head of horses, and followed the Cloncurry down as far as Mr. Walker's Station, Sorghum Downs. There, as we were to bid adieu to all civilization, I .sp...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, DEC. 5, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 5 December 1874

Northern Territory Times Palmerston: Saturday, Dec. 5, 1874. It appears from the statements of Mr. Bundey that the cost of sending a Judge on circuit to the Northern Territory will be something like £2,500. This is a large sum; and the question arises whether there is any necessity for it at present. The only prisoners now awaiting trial are the Chinaman, Ah Kim, and a man who is out on bail upon a paltry charge of entering a room at Bieber's public house with some supposed felonious intention. With regard to this latter case, it is probable that the Police Court would have found some way of dealing summarily with the matter if it had not been supposed that a Judge was undoubtedly coming up on circuit ; and in reference to the other matter, it is an outrage to keep the Chinaman in custody any longer. This man was committed early last May on two charges—the first for being in possession of cheques and papers which had been lost by the manager of the Bank ; and the   seco...

Mutiny at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

Mutiny at Sea A terrible story of a mutiny at sea is told in a letter from the Trevellan, bound for Otago, which was hailed by the Saturna, from Cardiff to Cape 1 own, with a cargo of coals. The captain of the Saturna states that on January 29, at c a.m., while he was asleep in his bed, three men came to him, one with a rope with a slip-knot formed at the end, another with a hatchet, and a third with a revolver. Directly he raised his head from the pillow the slip-knot was thrown over him and drawn tight. He immediately jumped from his bed and closed with the mutineers, and with a desperate struggle made his way past them, dragging after him one man who held the rope round his neck. He, however, had his head laid open with a blow from the hatchet. In that state he rushed on to the fore-cabin, and roused the mate, who was sleeping in his berth. He, fortunatelv, saved the captain's life by warding off the blows aimed at him. The captain made another eflort to gain the deck, and, still...

Central African Pigmies. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

Central African Pigmies. Mr. Bayard Taylor, who has re- cently visited Egypt, states that in the course of a conversation he had with the Khedive, Ismail Pasha spoke of a race of pigmies which had been discovered in the very heart of Cen- tral Africa, beyond the land of the Nyam-Nyams, and advised us to look at two natives of the tribe which had recently reached Cario. On leaving the palace of Abdeen, therefore, we drove immediately to the Palace of the Nile, near Boulak, where they are now kept. On making inquiry, the soldier in the inner court imme- diately pointed out two small boys (apparently), wearing the fez, and dressed in jackets and trousers of white wool. I should have taken them for children of some Ethiopian tribe at the first glance, and was not satisfied, until after a close inspec- tion, that one of them was a full grown man. ^ Dr. Schweinfurth saw some natives of the tribe among the Nyam-Nyams, but did not reach their country, which lies beyond t tat of the latter, ...

The Northern Territory Estimates. [From Parliamentary Proceedings.] [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

The Nortüern Territory Estimates. [Fram Parliamentary Frocct'dings.~] Estimated expenditure-Liabilities on 30th June, 1874., approximately, £10,170. The Treasurer (Hon. L. Glyde) said he wished to make a few pre- liminary remarks, and he would leave the details to be explained by his bon. friend who had charge of the Northern Territory. Hon. members would remember that last year, when he was asking sanction for a loan of £100,000, he explained that the Northern Territory owed the Trea- sury about £10,000, and that, al-* though he only asked for a £100,000 loan at thal time, he did not expect that the £100,000 worth of bonds would produce more than £90,000 which was about what it had done and that at the end of the year the Northern Territory would still be in debt to the revenue of South Australia proper. The fact had been much as he had expected, and the Northern Territory owed the revenue proper about £10,000. He would give some details as to how that £10,000 was arrived at. The a...

Sanitary Matters. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

Sanitary Matters, TO THF. EDITOR. Sir-I certainly think that as the District Council has now been in existence for nearly five months it is high time this town presented a much more cleanly and respectable appearance. At the back of nearly every occupied allotment unsightly heaps of bouilli tins and glass bottles are to be seen, to say nothing of other filthy accumulations, which ought (before the rainy season is upon us) to be cleared away ; to say the least of it is disgraceful. The Council has levied a rate of one shilling in the pound, and I think (and 1 believe every one else who wishes to enjoy health will say the same) that the best use the money could be put to would be some sanitary improvement in the town. Mr. Caldwell has left us, but I am sorry to say he has not taken the smell of the pigs away with him. How Mr. Caldwell managed to keep his pigs in the bounds of the town is more than I can say ; but I certainly think that if he did get permission he ought not to have bee...

Claims at the Stapleton. to Tin: i:oitoj£. Sir-As J have been blamed by severa persons on account of a letter from your Stapleton correspondent, dated Nov. 24, imputing fraud to persons who are easily enough distinguished by the description given, and as your last issue contains nearly a column of " Remarkable Notes," in which I recognise myself as " No. 5," I boo; to first of all disown all authorship of the first, and also to make a few re- marks in reference to the last. I do not intend saying anything more about the first, as the persons hinted at are well able to take their own part. A person unacquainted with the facts of the case reading these " Remarkable Notes" of a person who remarkably enough uses a remarkably fitting nom de plume (after appearing in past issues as Querist, Enquirer, M. E., and in some cases, especially in answet to his own queries in his own name) would be led to believe that this " plucky fellow No. 5" had done something by which, certain working men an...
