A DYNAMITARD INTERVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 5 September 1884
A DYNAMITARD INTERVIEWED. Â representative of the Paris MORNING NEWS states that he has had an interview j with a member of the " B " section of the " Clan-na-Gael " in Paris. That person stated that the Invincibles hope to silence the ticking of the dynamite clockwork, and to produce a still more terrible substance than that heretofore used. Dynamite classes are also said to be held in Paris. The Invincible also stated to the reporter that O'Donovan Bossa's coming to Paris was not improbable. The closing remarks of the Invincible were to the effect that another explosion may shortly be expected. «Let me call your attention," said he to his interrogator, "to the fact that for months all public offices and Buckingham Palace have been watched. Yet a successful explosion has been caused close by. All this is hopeful for us, and undoubtedly says little for British police efficiency."
FEARFUL CRIME—50 LIVES TAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
FEARFUL CRIME-50 LIVES TAKEN. Latest official Spanish intelligence leaves little doubt that the accident near Ciudad Beal, was the result of a revolutionary plan of general disturbances prepared for the day of the elections, which was defeated by the vigilance of the authorities. The scene of the disaster is at kilomètre 279 on the line to Portugal, the Ciudad Beal and Badajoz Railway, between the stations of Alma denejos and Chillon, a few miles from the Almaden quicksilver mmes. The railway line comes downs a rapid incline, and round a sharp curve to a bridge supported on three columns, which carries the line eight mètres above a small stream which was unusually swollen by several weeks' rain. The train was a slow one, travelling at a rate of thirty kilomètres an hour, and at four o'clock on Sunday morning the engine, the tender, four luggage vans, and four third-class carriages broke through the bridge and fell into the water, together with the débris of the bridge. Four other ca...
A CRUEL SCOUNDREL PUNISHED. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
A GRUEL SCOUNDREL PUNISHED. I Un May 1st a breach of promise case, in which some very discreditable, disclosures I were made, came before Mr. Justice Day j and a jury at the Manchester assizes. The plaintiff was Marian Levens, of Middleton, and the defendant Edward Halton, builder and timber merchant, of Kendal. Evidence was given that the defendant, who was a widower with a family, paid his addresses to the plaintiff for a long time, went amongst her friends as her intended husband, and had fixed the wedding day, but subsequently married another woman. The parties had visited various places together, and'were improperly intimate, and some of the plaintiff's letters contained such indecent expressions that the court was cleared of woman and children during the hearing of the evidence. It was also stated that the defendant had made im- proper proposals to the plaintiff's sister. The defendant denied that he ever promised to marry the plaintiff, and con- fronted with one of her letter...
DESPERATE LEAP BY BURGLARS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
DESPERATE LEAP BY BURGLARS. Two men, named George Connor and C. Costello, were brought np on remand at Manchester recently on the charge of hay- ing been found on enclosed premises for the purpose of committing a felony. On the night of Wednesday, the 23rd April, the attention of the proprietor, his wife, and daughter, at the coffee-shop, 177, City road, was attracted by hearing footsteps on I the zinc roof of. one of their rooms, and a light being thrown on the roof, two men were seen on it. They being thus suddenly disturbed, jumped over a low parapet which separated them from the roof of the ad- joining premises, and the probability is that mistaking the glitter on it in the darkness, they thought that it was zinc. This roof, however, unluckily for them, proved to be of glass, and the two, having jumped simul- taneously, went crash through, falling a distance of between fifteen and sixteen feet on the floor of the room. The crash of the broken glass immediately attracted the atte...

Dr. Pnprè, chemical adviser to the Home Office, having given similar evidence, the prisoner was committed to the Chester Assizes for trial. The court was crowded during the examination."
THE MUTINY OF THE BOUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884

Tahiti to Jamaica, the crew-mainly in consequence of the harsh discipline of the captain, Winiam Bligh-mutinied and set the captain adrift in an open boat with 18 men. After enduring great hardships the captain landed with his men at the island of Timor, to the east of Java, 3618 miles from where they had been turned adrift. The mutineers had meantime returned to Tahiti. Ten of them were captured and taken to England, where three of them were subsequently hanged. A number of others had evaded pursuit, and their refuge was not discovered till 1808, when an Amërican vessel touching at Pitcairn Island, Polynesia, discovered John Adams, one of the mutineers...
THE EARTHQUAKE IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
THE EARTHQUAKE Di ENGLAND. ï)r. Alexander Wallace, of Colchester, writes that £100,000 will hot suffice to make good the losses sustained by the earthquake. " The damage," he says, " is not confined to poor people's cottages ; these haye been wrecked by the hundred, tiles shaken off, chimneys thrown down through the roofs, and furniture spoiled-this is the common lot. The larger and better honses of fanners and professional men are more or less damaged, chimney stacks through the roofs, spoiling carpets and furniture, filling the rooms with bricks and soot ; side walls cracked, heavy walls twisted and rent, requiring repair done to the foundation. Mansions also, such as Donyland Hall, Wivenhoe Hall, and others, hâve suffered severe damage, so that the repairs in each case must cost hundreds of pounds.- Lastly, churches have been wrecked. Langenhoe and Poldon churches, I hear, from a hasty . inspection, are doomed, and others have been much damaged. The damage visible outside is only...

OUR FINANCES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
OUR FINANCES. The statement of the Minister of Justice is continued from our last issue as under : WITH regard to the details of the revenue he would mention that he had estimated the amounts as low as was possible. The actual revenue for the last year from Customs was £22,813 ls. 4d., and he expected to receive from that source this year £25,000, He did not think that was an exaggerated estimate, but they must consider that the pastoral settlement of the Northern Territory was being rapidly pushed ahead, and we were about to spend, a large sum of money for railway purposes, which would of course tend to increase tho I Customs receipts. Since he made out his estimates he had received a telegram from the Northern Territory to say that the actual Customs returns for the month of July were £2,700, which largely exceeded the amount of his estimate. The next line on thc Estimates was £1,000 set down for marine, and it was a new line altogether. He had put it down because he considered th...
The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884
FRIDATEVENING, SEPTEMBER 12. THE principal topic of conversation during the week has been the recent murder by the blacks at the Daly River. The circumstances of the outrage, so far as we can learn, are published in fall elsewhere. It would seem that this stamp of outrage is to become an annual occurrence on the Daly River, if some heavy punishment is not ten* dered to the savage perpetrators, and it will greatly endanger the lives of whites living in other outlying parts as well as that already referred to if some steps are not immediately taken to show these bloodthirsty murderers that, although enjoying unlimited freedom in their own land, they will not be upheld in the com- mittal of crimes of this kind with impunity. Murders by natives in the Northern Territory have already been of far too frequent occurrence. Think of Wingfield's untimely end j of the Escape Cliffs murder ; of the murders of Holmes, Duncan Camp- bell, Martin, the Chinaman at Port Essington and those at Collett...
