The Frozen Meat Trade. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Frozen Meat Trade. Amongst the men recovered by th» search party who went to climbup the North Pole jost to look around and see what things were like, and give the NEW YOBK HERALD a thoroughly reliable report to dose the mouthe of liars and fools ; was one poor fellow who was brought home insane. It is said that famine and prolonged exposure to intense cold had turned his brains. Our own correspondent has interviewed him ; and we shaQ not rest until this matter has been sifted to the bottom. It is a plot to grab the Australian frozen meat trade. Here are the words taken down from the unfortunate man's mouth. " I sailed with an expedition of Icelandic pirates in the year 973-Pagon being King of Nor- way. We were following the legitimate business of seafaring men of the time ; but I find that a pirate is now nothing, except, on land. We pursued a Swedish crew to the very verge of the pole, and here followed a stand up fight, of which I am the sole survivor. On recovering somewhat,...

More About New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

More About New Guinea. Bael, who wrote a hook on Nihilism, has got a New York millionaire to fit oat an, expedition. to explore New Guinea. He will go only for scientific pur- poses, and cheerfully proposes to do the deed in 18 months. He takes with him about 50 persons in- cluding photographers and scientists of every sort. He selecto New Guinea on account of its being so little known-indeed it is doubtful if it is not the only known large extent of territory on tho earth which has not l>een explored. Hr. Bael helps as oat of our own haze about the future of that island and of ourselves, when he says, "It will bo annexed to Australia, and make a part of tho South Sea Repub- lic, which will be formed when: tho colonies revolt and cut loose as the United States did,1 from the mother country."

The Rabbit Pest. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Babbit Pest. i The news that the rabbit pest in Victoria is becoming even worse than ever, is a serions matter. The latest news is that a quarter of a million scalps' have b«en brought into Dumboola from a radius of 8 miles round and the inspecter reports that the present means of extermination have been com- pletely mastered. One farmer has had ICO acres of wheat clean stripped and hundreds of others are suffering. It is very plain that there will have to be some stringent measures adopted here if we are not to drift into a similar position. What with droughts &c. ¿ur pastoralists and farmer have quite enough to contend with' as it is, and it will be the falsest economy to neglect taking complete measures to keep down* and if possible almost exterminate this pest. It would only be for New South Wales to drift into the same hopeless condition as Victoria, and, with no great river course between us and Queensland, that immense territory would speedily be overrun and from ...

Hints on Housecleaning. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Hints on Housecleaning. After the carpet lias been well beaten and swept off on both sides it maj still bare a dingy look and some spots scattered here and there over its surface. For some years I bare been in the habit of wiping the surface of the carpet with a solution of spirits of ammonia, say two or three tablespoonfuls to a gallon of water. The effect will be to brighten and remore all particles of dust. The cloth should not be too wet, simply damp. If there be spots a little nibbing is needed, using some soap. A mild solution of ammonia is very effective for removing dost and spots from clothing. A mixturo that is said to be very good for removing grease spots and stains from carpet and clothing consists of two ounces lump ammonia, two ounces white castilo soap, one ounce glycerine, and one ounce ether; cut the soap fine, and dissolve in one pint of water. Use one cupful of this mixture with an ordinary pail of water. Apply a sponge or a piece of clean flannel to the spot, wi...

The Furniture Emporium of New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Furniture Emporium ol New South "Wales. Day by day, from the present lime np to Christmas. , country residents will be making their way to the metropolis. The first big attraction rf the opening season is the Exhibition, and then follows the wool ' business, and the livelier attractions of the cricketing and sporting season. Bnt whether country people go up to the metropolis now or a month hence-or whether they remain at home-this one solid fact ought to be made knewn-that the Furniture . Emporium of New South Wales is Bradley, Newton, and Lamb's great Central Furnishing Warehouse, Spring and O'Connell streets, Sydney. This is one of the " oldest established houses in the metropolis ; and not only is the public of these colonies indebted ' to the firm for creating a system of fair values, but likewise for vastly improving the character of furnishing requisites, and by still maintaining. economy in prices, placing this improved art furni- ture within almost the general reach.

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Death has deprived France of one of her most distinguished musicians in the person of M. Victor Massé. ; Mr, Armstrong, one of the : oldest : mem- bers of the Victorian bar, and for many years Crown Prosecutor, died on Saturday. Norah O'Donnell, of Marylebone has been before the local court over 100 times. She got a month last time for over-refreshing. Our droughts are nothing to her's. Sir Saul Samuel, agent for New South Wales stated that he had sent out to his colony in the last three years, at nominal fares, upwards of 3000 single women, and he gave many instances to show the eagerness with which the services of those women were sought. The late Mr. Church left £16,000. He was first a prize fighter and OF COOBSE afterwards a publican. His sons are having a set to over it in the English law courts, and when the costs come to be totted up, it will be found the loser has had a worse finishing than his father ever gave a man.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. When tens of thousands of well dressed people can talk all Friday, and travel all Sunday, and read all Monday about Hanlan andBeach, it is pretty plain that the public mind is in no great ferment over serious matters. It is a good thing that, il is so. It means that with all the complaints of the'dullness of the times, there must be a very large majority of the people who are fairly'well off and satisfied. It means also, that we have a wholesome love for open-air sports, and a pretty firm belief that the great, icoiitests are honestly carried out, for so many; people cannot be got together to witness a transparent fraud. The interest taken hr this match, and the almost equid; interest in the proceedings of "Oui boya''.- at borne, must advertise Australia m miilions of homes where the name of the place now suggests but a hazy notion of an outlandish spot, given over to convicts, kangaroos, and sheep.

The Return of the Knights. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Betarn of the Emghts. Sir T. M. M'Hwraith is home from his travels, and Sir H. Parkes is coming. Both aré men who, whatever else they love, cer- tainly love power. Both come at a time when the land question-that fatal rock of the ministerial craft-is the topic of the day, and when beaten minoritiesare looking round for a strong man. Both come with thé control of money, and with lessons learnt amongst greater statesmen and finan- ciers than this country can hope to boast as yet. That the banquettings will draw forth speeches, and that their speeches and great financial proposals will draw public attention to them, and cause them to be selected as leaders of some great political movement, and cause to cluster around them all the dissatisfied amongst politicians there can be little doubt. They are not men who miss opportunities and their de- parture to England to "wait till the clouds blow over " and their opportune return, are only fresh proofs of what we know of them alreadv.

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The New Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The New Land BUL The chief officers of the Lands office have furnished Mr. Dalley with as precise figures alT are obtainable relative to the expected land revenue. He expects next year the revenue will be £1,000,000, or, with that from improvement purchases, £2,000,000. Sir John Bobertson maintains, however, that the réduction of deposits on conditional purchases from 5s. to 2s., out of which has to coma all the new expenses of survey, &c, will leave the Government figures very much astray. He contends, also, as do many other members/that the result of so great a reduction will lend an additional inducement to dummying.

Visitors to Sydney.—A Private House. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Visitors to Sydney.-A Private . House. HAST a mau bas doubtless been deterred from paying a visit to the metropolis, in company with his hard-worked partner, who equally well deserves a change, owing to the fact that extreme difficulty is experienced in obtaining : what might be termed something like private, homely ' accommodation. It is very rarely, except with heavy ' > outlay, that suitable accommodation eon be obtained in city - ' hotels. They are mostly conducted for a different close of business, and this is the reason why the visits of country residents to the metropolis are so rare; and the loss is ¡ mutual. There need not, however, be thia bother any ;, longer, os far, at least, as Sydney is concerned. A splendid house, of very large dimensions indeed, has been secured in Wynyard Square-thatmost central and most delightful spot in the city-and it is now devoted to the long-needed purpose Of a residential family club. The part of the management . is to give the house oil...

A MAN WITH A WAX HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

A MAN WITH A WAX HEAD. ' Some terrible stories are told by the burial parties ofter the battle of Tel-el-Kebir of the ghastly nature of the wounds inflicted by modern arms of precision. In one case the officer in charge found a poor Egyptian who had been left for dead, with the upper part of his face blown quite away. He was, however, still alive, and, notwithstanding his fearful injuries, was by the unremitting care and skill of the English doctors fairly on the way to recovery when he was attacked by dysentry, which 5roved fatal. A different fate seems to have awaited ean Moreau, a French artilleryman, wounded in the Franco-German war, whose story is told by General Ambert in the second volume of his Souvenirs Militaires," which is shortly to be published in Paris :-"Moreau on the 3rd January, . 1871, was engaged in the affair at Bapaume. While he was loading a cannon, he was strack down by a shell, which, bursting across his face, tore away his nose, eyes, the npper jaw, and a po...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. Over 2,700,000 tons of coal have been carried by nil to London from the Yorkshire coal- fields during the past five months. From a census taken by the police of Glasgow it appears that there are 2,419 shops doing business on Sundays in that city. . From an English Parliamentary return issued recently it appears 85 human corpses were found in the river Lea during 1882-3. ' A newspaper editor has beent sent to prison in Madrid for printing ah article on tyranny, which the official censor afterward found to be a quotation from Macaulay. A Russian said recently, in explaining the'many suicides of Russian Jews in New York, that they had not been in the habit of working hard and could not stand " the rough-and-tumble strug- gle for existence in the United States." The Canadian. brig G. P. Sherwood, bound from Philadelphia for Halifax, foundered on the 14th July, ten men and the captain's wife being drowned.

ROMANTIC SUICIDE OF A YOUNG WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

ROMANTIC SUICIDE OP A YOUNG WOMAN. On Jane 27, Mr. James Hiff held an inquiry at the Hanover. Inn, High Beach, Essex, on the. body of Jone Margaret Gibbins, aged 19 years, who com* nutted suicide under very romantic circumstances. -Mrs. Mary Ann Gibbings, a widow, living at Kile cottages, High Beach-road, said her daughter had been in service asa housemaid, but latterly had been staying with witness. She had been keeping company with a yoting man, and in consequence of a quarrel with him, had exhibited a strangeness in her manner. On Wednesday morning her dead body was found in a water tank attached to the premises. In her dress pocket was found the fol- lowing letter :-" Tuesday night. My dear mother, -When you hear of my distressing end you will, I I know, break you heart. When I got into bed, and had been there more than half-an-hour, the devil paid me a visit. He stood talking to me for some time, and told metbat he had seen Charles my young man-with another young woman. I said ...

THE SUNKEN GUNS AT GIBRALTAR [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

THE SUNKEN GUNS AT GIBRALTAR About ll centurias since, the Saracens invaded Spain, under their great General, Tank Ibn-Sayid, and seized upon the Bock of Gibralter, which tiley fortified as the base of their operations against the kingdoms of the Visigoths. Tidings have lately reached us that a diver engaged in submarine operations off the coast opposite to Gibralter, was discovered from 80 to 100 guns, which seem to be 24 and 32-poundere, and also two large anchors lying at the bottom of that historical bay. " They are supposed to have belonged to some large line of-battle-ship which sank in the old war, possibly after the Battle of Trafalgar." It is to be hoped that the apparatus necessary for lifting from their ocean-bed what may possibly be testimonies to the prowess of Nelson or Collingwood will not be grudged by the British Admiralty. A mere glance at these old-fashioned guns will suffice to establish whether they are of English or, as seems more probable, of French or Spanish...

Northern Territory Reform Association, [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Northern Territory Reform . Association, No meeting that has ever taken place in the Northern Territory has created one tenth the general attention as that held hy the above Association on Monday evening last at the Town Hall. To a certain extent the fact of several very important propo- sitions to be brought forward-propo- sitions all'bordering upon public interests and touching recent occurrences-was the main attraction, but rumour had been so busy for the last few days prior to thc meeting that almost everyone went with . the understanding that thc meeting would Bot be strictly bound down to business. It was, we can affirm, as good a representative meeting as could have been desired, lower and what we designate the upper class being both well represented, and making up a total of fully a hundred persons, inclusive of members of the Association. Monday's meeting was one which will ever .remain as a pleasant remembrance in the minds of those who attended ; and those who did not put...
