Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, JAN. 9. 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
mthqijii ¡jStyritorj Simes. Palmerston: Saturday, Jan. 9. 1875. ¡ I Colonization in NorthÄustralia lins had a hard time of it; lft?it is not to be beaten. Efforts, ^Kstantlv re- peated must succeed ^JTlast, though the struggle may be a long* one. "We ave reminded of this by hearing- again a little more about Port Essington. Twenty-five years ago that settle- ment was abandoned,, and its stone building's, its gardens, and its jetty, were left to the natives. But the white man still retains a hankering after the place, and now again we hear of a small settlement there. This time it is only a few trepang fishers, but the altered state of circumstances on the North Australian coast may possibly give Port Essington a start which it sought in vain for : 0 years ago. Its situation is good and healthy ; its soiigu better than most of the soil near^me northern coast; and its harbor is an excellent one safe and easily entered, "uesides which it has the advantage of being more in the track of ...

The Murders at Torres Straits. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
The Murders at Torres Straits. The Rockhampton Bulletin of Sep- tember 18 says:-By the Tinonee, Mr. G. B. Shaw received a letter from Mr. Vivian Bowden, giving the sad details of the late murders com- mitted at Torres Islands. The letter was written on board the schooner Southern Cross, oil' llodda Bay, San Christoval. It is dated 14th August, and mentions tiiat the " Lyttona, schooner, homeward bound, was then in sight. With respect to the murders Mr. Bowden writes, " I am sorry to have very bad news to com- municate. Poor Mr. Obbard and the mate were killed by natives of Lau, one of the Torres Group of islands, on the 2nd instant The circumstances of the case are these : -On the first instant we arrived at Boka Boka, the southernmost island of the Torres Group. The boat was kept going between the vessel and shore all day, purchasing vants, &c. The natives appeared friendly enough, but arc great thieves. On the 2nd instant, at 2*30 p.m., the boat went ashore at Lau, the sec...

Cruise to Port Essington. (By a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
Cruise to Port Essington. (By a Correspor dent.) The Government Resident wishing to visit Port Essington tor various rea- sons invited to accompany bim the Hon. Thomas Reynolds, and Mr. Mackay, of the Survey Department. The time appointed for sailing was hal -past six on the morning of Boxing Day, which I need hardly say was the. áüth Decem- ber. Shortly after that hour we were pulled off to the Flying Cloud, which lay at her usual anchorage, with mainsail airead}' unfurled. No sooner had we set foot upon her trim white deck than there was a movement forward; the''-boat was made fast astern, and with a light breeze and an ebbing tide we dropped quietly down our spacious harbor. By elie time we had taken breakfast, our berths ar- ranged, and ourselves settled down to our new life we had passed the Heads; the boat was hauled up and made fast; th° awning- spread, and with all sail set before a light favorable" breeze we skimmed through the : sparkling waters quite in excursion style. i...
COUNTRY CORRESPONDENCE. UNION. January 2. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
COUNTRY CURHESPOfl DENCE. UNION. January 2. The Christmas and New Year's holidays on the Union have not been such a* dull affair as many at a dis- tance would expect it to be, con- sidering ihe many inconveniences and drawbacks to enjoyment we have to contend with in a climate and country like the interior of Northern Australia. Englishmen in whatever part of the world they may chance to be will, if possible, have their roast beef, plum pudding, and beer on Christmas Day ; and Host Nelson, of the Globe Hotel, on that day, like a loyal subject, did his duty, by procuring us one of Lautour's prime fat bullocks for the occasion. Choice joints of the same cooked to perfection, with the necessary plum pud- dings, and every other obtainable luxury, with plenty of the "correct brand" to wash it down and assist digestion, gave ample employment and enjoyment to about 60 guests from far and near, who partook of his hospitality, and who demonstrated beyond a doubt that Eng- lishmen can and eve...
TOWN TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
TOWN TALK. Hy Gui.Mni.iiR. The talk is that Justices of the Peace are such scarce articles in tile Northern Territory that it was very difficult to make* up a Bench last Wednesday; and that the Local Court officers only succeeded at last Jhv bringing- Dr. Millner from a sick bed, and obtaining the services of Mr. Lindsay who liad met with rather a severe accident, and who had begged to be excused from attending, especi- ally as it was not his turn to sit. But fortunately the business was light, and the two invalids arranged matters as well as could he expected. The talk is that the Government, architect ought to call for tenders for the masonry work at the new Hospital ward, as tendering is the only proper way of getting such work done. Also, that a. dead-house ought to be erected without delay, as I* suggestsd last week-a suggestion which everyone admits to have been called for, and which was made without the slightest desire to blame cither the nurse or any other of the appointed ...

LAW COURTS. LOCAL COURT—PALMERSTON. Full Jurisdiction. (Before Mr. E. W. Price, S.M., Mr Lindsay, and Dr. Millner, J.P's.) Wednesday, January 6. An Auctioneers's licence was granted to Henry Moore, of Palmerston. Caldwell v. Fisher.—Unsatisfied Judgment. Adjourned till the next Court day. &nbsp; Nixon v. Ross.—Claim for £81. Plaintiff said he was not in a position to pay the fees ; and therefore the case could not be proceeded with Mr. Hanscombe (who appeared for Captain Ross) said he had come all the way from Bynoe Harbor to answer the plaintiff's case, and it was therefore very hard to have the matter again postponed. The Court, considering the fact that the &nbsp; &nbsp; plaintiff was without means, allowed him to proceed with his case. Plaintiff stated that the claim was on account of his passage-money to England, &nbsp; which he required to be paid in order &nbsp; that he might go home, after having left service of the Australian Fishery ...
The Reptiles of Australia. THE SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 9 January 1875
The Reptiles of Australia. By GERARD KREFFT. THE SNAKES. Speaking about the geographical range of" reptiles, it may be of in- terest to mention that I once re- ceived a specimen of the viper &nbsp; &nbsp; Pelias berus from a Russian gentle- &nbsp; &nbsp; man, who captured it in the neigh- bourhood of Irkutsk, on Lake Baikal. &nbsp; When it is considered that the letter advising the dispatch of the reptile &nbsp; and some other specimens took nearly six months to reach me, the &nbsp; value of natural history publications as a means of making this country known will be better understood. The highly venomous species whose bite is certain death (often small animals not more than a foot in length, but provided with fangs of an inch or more) are confined to India, Africa, and America. These are the snakes known as lance-heads, puff adders, rattlesnakes, or copper- &nbsp; &nbsp; heads, not one of which tribe in- habits...

Travelling Adventures. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 16 January 1875
Travelling Adventures. (From a Correspondent.) Wrapped in the security of town life, the hermits of Palmerston will scarcely credit the dangers to which ' travellers to and from th« reefs are exposed. In order, therefore, to warn and put future travellers during this season on their guard, it may be ex fiedicnt to give you au account of a ittle excitement experienced lately, On reaching the Stapleton late on Monday afternoon, we received the pleasing intelligence that on the previous evening a teamster had been stuck up at the Billabong, between that place and the Adelaide River. There were then four of us, whom we may term Smith, Brown, Jones, and Robinson. Smith immediately thought he was too tired to go on ; Brown said it was too late. Jones, however, more candid than the rest, confessed that he did not like ven- turing on a road so infested on so dark a night. Robinson, however, intimated his intention of pushing on, and on bis agreeing to Keep in advance as a mark to receive th...
