Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, DEC. 12, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

JtorLtlt(p ^rritarg Simis. Palmerston: Saturday, Dec. 12,1874. Mr. Bundey floundered about a great deal in the House of Assembly on the subject of the Northern Territory Estimates. Members wanted to know a great many things, and he had to produce ready-made answers to their questions, no matter whether such answers were correct or not. They wanted to know, for instance, who was the Secretary and accountant, at £50 J a year, and whether the office was permanent; and he replied (utterly forgetful of Mr. Knight, who is also Engineer and Architect) that the duties had been performed by the "Clerk to the Chief Goldfields Warden," and that the office was not permanent. This is certainly a curious answer, considering that the Chief Goldfields Warden never had a clerk, and that the Secretary and Accountant is a gentleman concerning whose appointment there was recently some very warm discussions. In the next place Members wanted to know something about the surveyors in the Northern Territory...

Cemetery at Southport. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

Cemetery at Southport TO THE EDITOR Sir-Can you tell me whose super- vision or control the cemetery of this township is under ? I was very much surprised to see out of some eight or nine graves in this burying place only one can be identified. Of course all the deaths in the Territory are registered; but I doubt very much whether any record of where they are buried is kept. This should be done. Those in the cemetery could easily be recognised by num- bering stakes and placing one at the head of each grave, and at the time of burial the name and number should be entered in a book kept for the purpose. I blush to own that I live in a country where the dead are treated with such contempt, and consider we are wanting in humanity by allowing this sort of thing to exist the time it has. Hoping the few lines may have the desired effect. I am. Sir, &c. CHURCHYARD.

The Perils of Overlanding. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

The Perils of Overlanding. We have received a long letter from Joseph Williams, who was in charge of Mr. Cox's horses before they were lost. But wc have omitted personal matters, and we confine ourselves to such por- tions of the letter as contain par- ticulars ol general interest. Mr. Williams says :-" The delay in looking for lost horses caused the rations to run out ; so the real hard- ships of overlanding commenced nothing to eat but horse flesh. Having no salt we were obliged to kill every other day. All hands got very low on this diet, and got the diarrhoea. So weak were some of the men that things began to look very serious. Such was our con- dition when we got to Limmen Bight River, and mistook it for the .Roper. Found it was not the Roper, and all the saddle horses were done up with the exception of the cook's horses; for the poor fellow was no rider* and in consequence his horses were ingood order. The cook then went ''away from here, saying he wouldjlihd the Roper ; he wo...

The Transit of Venus. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 December 1874

The Transit of Venus, This event took place, as duly announced, on the the 9th instant"; buttheweather was unusually cloudy at Port Darwin, and, therefore, with tho. imperfect means of observation which exist here, the moments at which the transit commenced and terminated could not be noted. The following1 remarks from tíng lish papers in reference to this phenomenon will be read xvith in- terest:- "Without discussing- too closely the scientific considerations on which the importance of this astro nomical phenomenon depends, let na inquire what those nations who take the lead in scientific research are preparing- to do totvards the utiliza- tion of tile various methods of obser- vation which the occasion suggests as available for determining' tha sun's distance. These methods may tims be described and classified. At tim basis of all methods lies the fact that Venus, as seen from different parts of the earth at any instant of her transit, will appear projected on different (though al...

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

Holding Claims. TO T1IK EDITOR. Sir-Now a few of the claims such as I referred to in the conclusion of my last letter have been taken possession of by others, and one or the other of the host of P. of A.'s have arisen like a spectre from the very reef and said " You can't lu-ve that skull, that's my skull, or least ways, I am power of attorney to the shoulders to which it belongs, so put it down !" The writer knows that, in some instances, claims held by these accommo- dating hanging-on proxies, by their P. of A.'s, and which have been taken up by second parties, have had the jiegs pulled up, flags shifted to other masts, &c, in as mysterious a manner as Robccca used to remove turnpike-gates in Glamorgan- shire. Of course he does not even hint that anything so respectable as a man wearing a coat, with a power of attorney signed by a gentleman on the southern side of the 2Gth deg. of lat. would dirty his hands by bullying a poor peg, or striking and re-hoisting a piece of cal...

The most of Scott and Westcott's macbinery is on the ground, but things are getting on wonderfully slow. It seems im- possible to do anything with speed in the Teiritoty in the way of work. It is haul to'get men to work, and is diHicult to "lind men that really understand their business. They have a good engineer employed. Charlie and Marshall have not been in again ; they are steadily trying their new reef. About eight tons are catted into Laity's machine from Starke's. If ir goes as well as first of Union I shall be satisfied. I place tout little heed in the blowing of inexperienced people. The Telegraph Company is re- formed, 605 £5 shares, £2,700 capital.

About 11.30 a.nu he asked what time dinner would be ready, as he was hungry. Between 1 and 1 o'clock witness called him to dinner. He was then lying down in a draught.
