Preserving and Stuffing Birds. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

Preserving and Stuffing Birds. This is not only an interesting but a useful pursuit, but as a means of j arriving at correct details regarding the rich collection of the native birds of this country. The following par- ticulars upen the subject are col- lected from various sources, and have proved efficient for the purposes of the amateur collector during years of trial. It may be added that this, like most other pursuits, can only be mastered by patient perseverance, some degree of taste, and minute attention "to details. From the outset it is essential o preserve the plumage of the birds in Qlean and unruffled condition ; when the feathers by any accident become disarranged or bent, it is very difficult to readjust them properly. As soon, therefore, as a bird is shot, all holes should be plugged with cotton to stop the blood, and the feathers should be cleansed from all stains as speedily as possible. Preparatory to skinning, take down and note for reference the principal dimensio...

Remarks on Sugar-Growing. (From an Adelaide Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

Remarks on Sugar-Growing» (From an Adelaide Correspondent.) The size of the cane varies ac- cording to (its species, and at its maturity ranges from five to seven- teen feet, and even larger. It is generally about i| to 2 inches in diameter. The cane is divided by a series, either short or long, of knots, perhaps 30 to a cane. From either side of these knots long leaves sprout. The top is surmounted by a cluster of these lcng leaves, similar in character to the common bamboo. Some species of sugarcane, before ripening, throw out a very beautiful plume, from which the seeds arise. The outer covering of the cane is hard, and when ripe with saccharine mattev,should crack smartlv if pressed with the nail. It grows best m " stools," each stool containing from i6 to 30 canes, according to the > species and climate in -vhich it is grown. The cane itself contains a number of tubes, in which saccha- rine matter is formed. These tubes, after each cutting of the plant, become gradually fill...

Lightering. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

Lightering:. TO THJÎ EDITOR. Sir-I have beeu informed that Commander Itoss is soliciting employ- ment for the boats, belong-ing *to the Australian Fishery Company lo lighten the Gothenburg's cat-go, now daily expected ; offering- to do the same at a lower rate than the owners of the small crafts belong-ing* to this port have been receiving-. The owners of these crafts, and men employed by them, are entirely depending- on the steamers for a living-, arid are idle between the arrivals of the steamer. I eoasider it would be an injustice and a great hardship should the con- signees deprive them of their living-, and put money in the ¡lockets of strangers. If such be the ca^e these boat owners will have to leave the Territory. I am. Sir, &c, OBSERVER.

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: SATURDAY, FEB. 6, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

Jtorçtfap 8fo¡rritorj¡ Simes. Palmerston: Saturday, Feb. G, 1875. An amusing discussion about Melville Island took place in the House of Assembly a short time ago. Mr. Bundey had been thinking a great deal about that island, and having examined the map of North Aus- tralia very carefully, he had come to the conclusion that Melville Island was just the place for a sanatorium' and that it would be used for that purpose when the Port Darwin country became populated. He was therefore opposed to any scheme for selling or letting the lands on the island. But why ? It would surely not poison the air or make tho place less healthful for future generations of Palmerstonians if some portion of the island were let to squatters just in the same way as Cobourg Penin- sula has been let ; and when the time came-for sick people to go there for a change of air, the said squatters could be served w ith a notice ot resumption ; and so far from the sick people being any the worse for the recent occu- p...

The Reefs. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

The îteefs. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I beg- to make a few remarks in respect to this district. I may say things in general are looking quite lively up here at present. Commencing with the Royal Standard Company, which is quite a busy place-10 head of" stamps continually going, with a very large staff of miners, coolies. &c. ; and from the determined way in which the manager is pushing things, it would appear he intends to make up for all the old mistakes, and do something more favorable for the present pro- prietary. The New Telegraph battery will soon be going again ; but this time with ten heads instead of five, which no doubt will be a great advantage to the present Company. The Manager of this Company is making consider- able headway, a large body of stone being stacked ready for crushing; in fact, he is taking advantage of the present good roads ; and I have been informed the stone looks very well. This property changed hands some time ago for for a very low figure, in spite ...

Exploration. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 February 1875

Exploration. TO TIIM EDITOR. Sir -Through your columns I wish to call attention to a question that our energetic Government seem totally to ignore, namely, further inland ex- ploration, though it ¡s a necessity of the greatest importance to any speedy advancement of the Territory. I am aware that at present it is too early in the year for anything of the kind, but not so for calling the Government's attention to its importance at the break up of this season; What I advocate is, starting an expedition south from Pine Creek Until they struck the river Katherine ; then to follow it down to tidal influence, if practicable, to her seaboard, as that would assist in a future expedition by sea to ascertain if it were navigable auy distance iuland. When 'consider- ing her size at the telegraph crossing, and the numerous rivers that she must be augmented by, such as the Phillips, Edith, Stow, Fergusson, Cullen ; and again, on the south, by the Kin»-, Gregory s dry river, and others, it warran...
