The miners at Charters Towers seem to be rather rough on "stray "gamblers. During the races there last month, they cleared the gamblers off the course, and smashed all their tables.

The proposal is taking practical shape, and j the sum of 50,000 francs has been subscribed to defray the expenses of a person of considerable experience, who has been commissioned t...

James Hawthorne has been sentenced t death at Melbourne, for the murder of his broth« William. The jury recommended him to mercy o account of bis excited state of mind. The prisonc said he was entirely free from the crime. ¡Th judge held out no hope of mercy. At the sam sittings Hosanna Smith was sentenced to death fo infanticide. A painful scene was recently witnessed a a Sydney police court. Jonn Charles Harknes convicted of an offence, was completely ovcrcom at seeing his wife. He embraced her affectionately and the policeman was so moved that he felt in dined to hug a chair. However, his "attentioi was abstracted," when John C...
Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
Political. The Griffith Government have held a Cabinet Council on board the steamer "Kate,' while down the Bay, and considered the Estimates, It is to be hoped their decisions will not put them afloat in another way. Affairs in Egypt have reached a fearful erisis. The whole industrial and farming popula- tion refuse to pay taxes on corn or any kind ol produce, and threats have been made to eject them aad offer their property at auction. This will make the revolt general throughout Egypt. Mr. Heydon, M.P. for Yass in the N.S.W. Parliament, has deserted the Government because the Land Bill goes for the squatters and does mt fulfil the promises to selectors. This is a very noble thing on the part of Mr. Heydon, but was he prepared witt anything more liberal ? Dr. Moran, the B.C. Bishop, now en route to the colonies, says he intends to carry on a campaign against the public school system ol Australia. We wonder where he'll bnry his dead. The Boman Catholics of Australia want a con- tinu...

Polygamy—Immense Fun. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
Polygamy-Immense Fun. At the Dublin Commission Court before Mr. Justice Lawson, Brian Denis Molloy, a wretched looking man of 45, son of a magistrate for the Co. Mayo, and who, on the death of his father, will become entitled to £1000 per annum, was indicated for bigamy. Thc prisoner has married five times, the last person with whom he went through the ceremony being his own first cousin, a lady of about forty, Miss Bobertina Greene, who has an income in her own right of £400 per annum. There was only one formal charge against the prisoner. Several of his wives were in court, and towards them he assumed a most amusing ex- pression, pretending affection for them by sighing audibly as he recognised them. He said, "My lord, might I sit down ? I feel very weak. I am not able to stand. I have been in prison for the last two months." This permission was accorded. Mr. Stephen Curtis appeared for the accused. Mr. M'Caffrey, assistant clerk, of the Crown, then read the incictment against the...

NORTHERN TERRITORY CUSTOMS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
NORTHERN TERRITORY CUSTOMS BILL. ly connection with the above matter the following particulars, taken from the OBSERVER of the 2nd August, may bo of interest to our readers : The Minster of Justice moved the second reading of the Bill. He said that the chief object of the Bill was to remove the export duty on gold, which bore very heavily on thc Chinese, and ho thought the following figures, which ho had received from the Government- Resident in the Northern Territory, would justify the repeal of this tax. There were now between the Catherine and Palmerston GOO Europeans, and on the Herbert 100 more, while 100 represented other nationalities. The number of Chinese was estimated at 3,500. .Tho Customs revenue up to March 31,1884, amounted to £21.919, of this sum £5,203 was set down for riee, and £2,942 for opium-nearly the whole of which was contributed by the Chinese« It would be seen, therefore, that these people paid their fair share towards thc Customs revenue* and so this object...
Another Murderer in Heaven. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
Another Murderer in Heaven. It appears from all the newspaper roports of execu- tions that murderers go straight to heaven. The last man who toole his departure for the new fields was Edwards, executed last week in New Zealand, or the brutal murder of his wife and child. He was very nervous as the fatal day approached, bnt it appears he was supported on the gibbet, not by a warder, but by the certain hope of reward. Edwards, no doubt, on putting his foot down on the golden shore, will receive a friendly grip from Cordini, worked off a few weeks ago at Deniliquin, or from Lynch, the hero of fifteen murders, in New South Wales, or of Nicholls and Lester, the gentlemen of Parramatta Uiver celebrity. They all died full of hope of either going in at tho front gate, or arranging with the keeper of a side entrance. Hundreds of poor men and women in our big towns and cities die -worn out in an honest strngglo for subsistence they may die from real distress, disease, or suffer- ing. But they...
Theatrical Morality. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
Theatrical Morality. There has been an exciting and spicy hit of scandal among theatricals in Melbourne daring the past week, j The leading characters in the affair are Miss Edith Fender, Mr. Blank, and Mr. J. A. South, the latter appearing as the innocent victim. It seems on published evidence that Miss Edith Pender hasn't been amiss for some time, that in fact she's been Mrs. Dillon, Mrs. South, and Mrs. Blank by turns, and now not only has Edith been and gone and left poor South all lamenting, but she has walked off with his jewel- lery. As this is~ stage jewellery, it's slightly hazard- ous to say anything of its value, but as it constitutes a property, South has issued a warrant for an arrest ; so that a pretty exposure is on the boord. " Darn it," says South, " it didn't matter about my wife, but to run away with my jewellery it is too bad." It is very funny to see this bit of theatrical inner life come to the surface. It strikes ns the " perfesh" are too busily engaged teachi...
More Murder and Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
More Murder and Mystery. The wire reports a mysterious affair on the Yarra, -the Ganges of Australia. The body of a man ap- parently ten days dead, has been found floating in the water, and there are indications that it is that of a hay and corn merchant of Woodland, named Duke, who went np to Melbourne about July 16, and has not since been seen. Duke had Ü70 on him when he went to stay at the Albion Hotel, Bonrke-street, and it is urged that as there was no possible cause for suicide,'he must have been robbed, murdered, and then cast into the Ganges-we mean the Yarra. Another item of sad intelligence from the Southern city is that of a fatal accident to Edmond Marshall, the actor. It is only a few days ago that his brother, poor Fred Marshall, that prince of comedians, en- tered the Yarra Bend, a drivelling lunatic. Now poor Edmond meets a painful death in the streets of Melbourne. A heavily laden waggon knocked him down, and two wheels passed over his body, frac- turing his arm, a...
The Biggest Buggy Factory in Australia. A CHANCE FOR FRESH ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
Tùé Biggest Buggy Factory in Australia. A CHANCE FOB FRESH ENTEEPEISE. Although for the last six or eight years very little has appeared in tho newspaper press of the colony with regard to tho extensive buggy, waggon, and cart factory of John Robertson, of Pitt-strcct, Syd- ney, it is still an undoubted fact that the vast enter- prise has been going on developing till now, it un-. . doubtedly ranks as the largest in the colonies. It will be remembered that some years ago the press criticisms of Mr. Robertson's works referred to tho capacity of the works, and improved description of machinery with which each department was fur- nished. It was then seen, and seen correctly too, aa foots have since amply proved that the Australian trade could only bo held against all importers by tho investment of largo capital in the best labour-saving and expeditions appliances. And it is an admitted fact all round that Robertson's factory has virtually controlled the whole Australian market.. Of cou...
The New Season's Teas. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
The New Season's Teas. Tho greatest satisfaction continues to ho expressed at the immensely superior qualities of the new season's Teas, tho first shipment of which arrived by the Menmuir a few days ago, and tho whole retail trade of the colonies will do well to make a special effort to get thc splendid now article in circulation arnon? their customers. Testings of the tea throughout tho various warehouses of Sydney, show that in tho cup it is of greatly increasod vitality and fragrance, and ia certainly a saving, on account of its raro in- herent strength. During the last fow days the exten- sive warehouse of Messrs. J. S. Love & Co., Bathnrst streot, opposite St. Andrew's Cathedral, has been a contre of busy activity, buyers from city and country Coming1 in large numbers. Messrs. Lovo-& Co., aro among the largest consignees, having received nearly 6000 cases and chests. ' Of course, first shipments usually consist of the highest class of teas, owing to the high cos...
The Small-pox Outbreak. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
The Small-pox Outbreak. If the colony of Victoria has failed to innocnlate her neighbours with protection or a great spirit of annexation, she is in a fair way of giving them a dose of small-pox ; and the means are worth con- sidering. Two or three years ago, when an out- break occurred in Queensland, the electric wires in- formed the whole of the colonies and warned them against infection. Later, when small-pox was dis- covered in Sydney, official confirmation of the fact ran along the lines, and by a heavy outlay of money and generous precautions, the other colonies were saved from an epidemic which threatened to scourge the whole Australian population*. But, in Victoria, where self is the national emblem and idol, the ex- istence of small-pox has been denied, hushed up, and the whole of the colonies placed in jeopardy of contamination. No doubt were are unskilful men engaged in the work of guarding the public health in Victoria: but the consistant hiding of the existence of the d...
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Agrarian Murder in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Agrarian Murder in Victoria. A settler named Peter M'Ansh has been found murdered at Lancefield, Victoria. The body was discovered at ll p.m. on the 24th, and an examina- tion immediately showed that the deceased was singed on the left temple, and blackened by powder. The trousers at the groin were burnt, and it was seen that a heavy charge of large shot had lodged there, the hole being probed to at least three inches deep. There was no sign of a struggle ; in fact, his pipe was in his mouth, and a bottle of gin under his arm. The old fellow appears to have walked unsuspectingly up to the muzzle of the murderer's gun. The police have fortunately got on the right scent of the culprit. It appears M'Ansh and another resident named O'Brien had a dispute about some land, the award being in the former's favour. O'Brien bas since;repeatedly threatened to "do" for M'Ansh, and the black trackers, who were quickly on the scene of the outrage, traced footsteps to O'Brien's h...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. The danger increases daily of the colonies being pushed into a legislative union with the Imperial Parliament. That danger, strangely enough, comes from a wrong which is inflicted from year to year on this country. The men who made their pile by their opportunities, who grabbed and then resold enormous areas of the public estate, or who bled their country by the aid of Government contracts, have gone abroad to enjoy their fortunes. The country which made them gets nothing in the way of useful application of their money, to the ' employment - of labour or the development of her resources. In another way, how- ever, this unfortunate country does get a great deal from them. These swollen absentees, little in themselves, must be somebodies at home. They can only at- tract attention, and get themselves into prominence, by pretending they have a country to sell. It is these worthless, non- productive absentees who meet at the Colonial Institute, and talk with lords and ...
An Opening for Country Money. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
An Opening for Country Money. On thc suburban railway line, between Parramatta and Sydney, there is a splendid area of building land, known ' aa Anburn Heights, which from its dryness of atmosphere and height certainly claims the first consideration as a residential suburb of the metropolis. And it is a fortu- nate thing that the pick of the whole land has been secured by a wealthy financial company in Sydney, who are able by their liberal sub-divisions to prevent the lamentable building blunders committed in all the older, and in fact some of the new suburbs of the big city. The whole tract known aa the Heights of Auburn, from which a commanding view for miles is obtainable-the Blue Mountains, Pennant Fills, Parramatta Giver, South Head, ¿ca, being plainly observable, has been purchased by tho Sydney and Suburban Mutual Permanent Building and Land Investment Association (Limited). This com- pany has a thoroughly practical directory, the names being known all over the metropolis as ...
