THE IRISH DYNAMITARDS IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884
THE IRISH DYNAMITAEDS IN PARIS. An Irish gentleman, in London who sympathises with the Irish Nationalists, has just received a long letter from a member of the Clan-na-Gael in Paris, of which the following extract contains some interesting news, which, if true, shows that the Irish revolutionary party in Paris is very active : Serious efforts are being made to amal- gamate into one body the Invincibles and Dynamite Sections in Paris. A well-known Irish-American conspirator was here a week ago, with that object in view. Though he may not have entirely succeeded, he at least removed many of the difficulties which had till now prevented that amalgamation. In a few weeks' time it will, in all probability, be. an accomplished fact. For the time being, Captain M'Cafferty's place is filled by a mah who was implicated in the Cork dynamite conspiracy of a year ago. He holds a good social position; and is trusted by every member of the group. . . . The two secret agents of the Invincibles sen...

The Viscount Savernake has married a choras singer of the Comedy theatre, London. Now get ready for another ripe and racy divorce scandal in high life. King Tawhio now in London has pains ,in his legs and can't. walk ont. He has also sore j eyes, so his proper title now will be-"His in ! flamed eye-ness." ! Dr. Youl has been relieved of his official I duties as President of the Victorian Board of ¡Health. This will give him a chance of studying the difference between measles and small-pox. It came out in a recent discussion in the ¡House of Commons that Tom Cannon, the famous , English Jockey, owned an advowson. He had thus a say in the appointment of clergymen to his : district.

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
Political. . M'llwraith's friends bave given him something to eat in Brisbane. Dr. O'Doherty raised a glass of champagne aloft* and notified' that he desired Mr. M'llwraith to enjoy good health. All the gentlemen present then rosé, and after saying M-Macilbraith, drank something out of a glass, and afterwards felt ever so much better. There has been a great strike in the cotton trade in Burnley (says a radical paper.) If there is one thing more than another in which we find capitalists in entire accord with the lords of the soil, it is in this matter of keeping down the working man. In the eyes of both he is nothing but a sort of chattel, to be used and abused as it suits their purposes. They will spend thousands of pounds on a year-old horse for racing purposes (bear witness the sale of Lord Falmouth^ stud at Newmarket thc oilier day), spend a fortune in decorating a mansion, or in building a yacht, etc., Ac ; but let an artisan ask for an increase of wages, or a larmer for a reduc...
Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
Scientific. Telpherage is the new name for trans- porting goods on elevated wire, instead of rails set on the ground. The motive power is electrical and the advantage claimed is that they can be constructed over rough country and save the enormous expenses of bridges and cuttings. Profes- sor Fleeming Jenkin proposes to substitute for rails a suspended rod or thick wire on which a number of light trains can be run, the wire which supports the train being also the conductor which transmits the necessary current of electricity. Electric railways and tram-cars have already been constructed in which the usual double rails are employed. Wire ropp trams are also in use : but the system of tel- pherage is a combination of the two. In the new system strong posts are erected at distances of about seventy feet, the posts being provided with cross-heads, to the ends of which are attached steel rods about three-quarters of an inch in diameter, one set of rods acting as the ups and the other as ...
THE HON. J. L. PARSONS FIRST QUARTERLY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
THE HW. J. L. PARSONS' I HIST ¡ QUARTERLY REPORT. BY a recent mail we received from the Govnmc EST GAZETTE Office a copy of the first quarterly report of the Northern Territory since the Hon. Mr. Parsons was appointed to the position Of Government Resident, a few clippings from which may he of interest to those of our readers who hare not had the pleasure of perusing the Report previously. For its completeness it is highly commendable-all the various industries and interests of the Territory are fully noticed, both as they at present exist, and with the addition of such sug- gestions of alterations as he deems advis- able. Commencing with his arrival here, the Resident feelingly alludes to the wel- come he received on all sides, afterwards referring to the able manner in which the late Acting Government Resident fulfilled his onerous duties, and then proceeding with the general business nf his report. Adopting the usual course, the Resident first tackles the pastoral industry, and, ...
Wiser than Everybody. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
Wiser than' Everybody. A writer in that faintest of echoes (the Sydney ECHO) says: " Advertisements are the wrong of the many for the gratification; of the few. A thousand advertisements please and satisfy a thousand and one: people-the thousand advertisers and the one publisher." This is the sort of smart twaddle that pleases one person only-the writer of it. If he takes up a newspaped and can't find news enough, he is enragée at the array of advertisements. He objects, he says, to people thrusting their wares into our faces. Why, then, does he write under a specially prepared heading to induce the public to buy and read his wares ? If it is wrong for a man to dress up his shop windows to the best advantage and to advertise his cheap merchandise, then the writer should content himself by keeping, his views in his own humble bosom, and not come out and parade his poor barren thoughts in a whole column of a paper. The man who does not advertise in these days is a fool. A blowing adve...
GENERAL MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
GENERAL MISCELLANY. The refrigerating chamber of the Orient Company's steamer Lusitania, just arrived at London from Mel- bourne, took fire and burned for seven hours when the vessel was in the Indian Ocean.

The business of the Western Aus- tralian Timber Company has been purchased by a Liverpool iron master. This company has offered to supply M. de Lesseps with jarrah wood pUes for the Suez Canal. Holders of New Zealand 5 per cent bonds to the amount of £750,000 have refused to accept the scheme for tue converaicn of the securities bearing a lower rate of interest, and they will, in consequence be paid oft* in January next The TIMES states that the Russian fleet has left for Cheefu, it is believed with hostile designs against China. News received from Shanghai states that the Chinese are blocking .th...
Informal Nominations. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
Informal Nominations. E. J. Henry was some time ago nomi- nated for avacancyin the Petersham council, On the nomination day, when the mayor read out : the nomination, Mr. Shorter, solicitor, who was also a candidate, rose and contended that Henry's nomination was informal, inasmuch as it only set forth his candidature for the borough, and no ward was specified. The mayor ruled the objection invalid, and Henry was elected. Subsequently legal proceedings were insti- tuted against Henry, who resigned, and was re-elected on the amended form. The Sydney Supreme Court has just ruled that Mr. Shorter's first protest was justifiable, and the mayor should have treated the nomination as informal. Meanwhile Henry holds his position of alderman in virtue of his second election.
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Colonial Fever. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. 'Colonial Fever. Nations .appear quite as liable to social epidemics as to any other. They have it bad now in the shape of colonisation. The stock from : which the British have sprung were wanderers from the beginning. Marauders: on land and pirates at sea. We are descended from a restless breed that will not stay at home, and for many ages were what the moralists call a rolling stone. But now we have pretty well got a "leg in" in every part of the earth, and we wish to be quiet. It is not to be. The great European nations are stay at home people, and they have staid at home so long that they haven't room enough, and have got so nasty lest one should grab a quarter acre from the other, that every little bandy- legged, turnip-fed feeder, has to spend great part of his time brandishing a bayonet too heavy for him, growing a furious mous- tache, and looking blood, thunder, and et cetera, and howling about Fatherland, or La Republique, or Vive l'Empereur, ac- cording ...
A Line for the Sporting Public. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
A Line for the Sporting Public. The betting over the Metropolitan Stakes is- -the heaviest that has been known since it was established The Me trop., the Caulfield, and the Cup betting this year is something terrific. In addition to the unex- pected victory of Hastings at Hawkesbury, it has somehow been passed around that that there is even a darker horse kept back with a view to .the Mel- bourne Cup, and a stroll through Tattersall's,' jnst before going to press, 'shows, that if such be the case, it is known to a very limited circle. They say that many of the heaviest wagers laid on tho Metrop. have been done to force a real trial of speed in all bonn fide hcrses entered, and that thes deep «and profound schemers are so confident of wrát they have in hand for the Cnp, that they don't mind being hard hit over the Metropolitan if their horse only shows somewhere within the time he is fit forv If bo is anywhere within a "place," under tho ínstrnc: tiona, they don't even care for Caulf...

THE CHOLERA IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
THE CHOLERA IN FRANCE. À late- English scientific paper thus offers the following explanation of the outbreak of cholera ip. France. On the 19th, a day before the first cholera case appeared, a violent mistral blew down almost the whole crop of apricots for many miles along the coast before they were ripe. Hawkers sold this unwholesome fruit in the street of Toulon for almost nothing, and many attracted by the cheapness devoured large quantities. Diar- rhoea often ensued, which in some cases developed into cholera. It is alleged that the naval captain, Durcoch, who is dead, ate some of these apricots.
SOME SMART SWINDLING. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
SOME SMART SWINDLING. This is an English case, and mnst possess interest. It shows how two gentlemen in trying to Uve on their wits, are likely to Uve oh hominy shortly. Adam -Ward, was charged with another of stealing the sum of £4*50 by means of the confidence trick, from Mr. Léon Miller. On October 26 lest prosecutor was in the Strand and met two men, who entered into conversation with him and told him their names were Murphy and Johnson. They invited him to drink.

He said that if the prosecutor could produce anything as secu- rity for his responsibiUty he ( Murphy ^ would hand him £500 for distribution in Germany, to which country prose- cutor was about to proceed.

SALVATION ARMY. Things are lively in England. At -Bermondsaythe army have been pelted, and the brethren have shown fight like the ungodly. Ten thousand persons attended a great meeting at Sheffield. Booth and family were present. The " general " in stong language, denied that be and his family had benefited by the funds of the Army; he had not had a shilling out of them for his own purposes since it was started.

THE GREELEY EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884
THE i GREELEY EXPEDITION. The relief ships Thetis and Bear, with the store ship Alert, which were despatched from thej United States in the course of April and \ May, have just arrived at St. John's, Newfoundland, with Lieutenant Greely and six men, belonging to the Meteorological Expedition, which was landed in Discovery Cove, Lady Franklin Bay, Smith's Sound, in August, 1871, and has not since been heard of.

Sergeant Ellison was among the party saved by the Thetis, but he died after his frozen hand had been amputated in Disco Island. ' The story told by Lieutenat Greeley and his companions is harrowing in the extreme. Finding their provisions growing short, and despairing of any ship reaching them, the entire party, consisting of 25 men, deserted their house in Discovery Bay, which they had named Fort Conger, after Senatro Conger, of M...
