TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Barwood is a delightful little place a few miles up the line from Sydney to Parra- matta. It is a place of huge respectability having beautiful gardens and villa residen- ces, and ratepayers, who, now that the Hanlan-Beach case is over, want to change the subject and find out what the Council have been doing with the rates. The question has forced itself into the Council Chamber, and the feeling has run high enough to induce one alderman to ask ..Alderman Beaver to come outside in order to be drowned-a request, it is needless to say, no sensible beaver could comply with. Something nearly as ferocious has recently been heard in Parramatta and many other country municipalities. At one time we have bitter complaints from the ratepayers that councillors take no interest in affairs. ; At another we find councillors drowsing away their term of office, and doing nothing but look big and make speeches for the local press. When aldermen make up their minds to attend to wor...

MATTERSON v. EDWARDS. £100 A-SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

MATTERSON v. EDWARDS. £100 A-SIDE. i On August 22, a race in wager boats was rowed ' over the champion coarse, between Bobert Edwards ¡ of Melbourne, and Neill Matterson of the Clarence ! River for £100 a-side. Considerable interest being naturally excited by the event in aquatic circles, two steamers, the Leveret and the Admiral, were chartered for the occasion. The former vessel was chiefly patronised by Edwards' backers, the Clarence River man viewing his admirers as they shouted at him from the Admiral. Amongst those who followed the race and who are well-known in thé rowing world were Mr. Edward Hanlan, Messrs." Targett, MX.A., J. G. Deeble, M. Horn, J. and T. Spencer, and others. Edwards rowed in a new boat weighing only 26 j lbs, and specially sent over from the workshop at Princes' bridge, and was loudly cheered as he mada his appearance, looking as all his friends remarked, " Very like it." Matter son also was warmly received, and appeared in fine C4UtditioB.Tr-Before the r...

Sporting Mems. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

Sporting Mems. A new Bowling Club started in New- castle. Large numbers ot members enrolled. Very few Melbourne men attended the Hawkesbury meeting. They are coining over with a hat- ful of mone to spend at Kandwick. Egan and Canterbury won the £10 trophy for handball at Carlton Court, beating the two Shiels. Hannon won at King-street Court. In the Australians against Nottingham, the game was drawn in favour of the Notts, and they required only 119 to win, and hod nine wickets to fall. At every race meeting of any note, a large percentage of the horses engaged-nearly one-fourth on the aver ge-are actual property of bookmakers. Top weights for the A. J. C.

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

AVorñan Items. . Tho Australasian .brought 640 immi- grants. The papers are unanimous in praise of weir promising appearance-the loafer, or hang about-town-and-spout-at-thc-Staiue type being ab- sent. There are'244 single women, aboard. How the 244 single men scattered np and down New South Wales have the brazenness to say they can't find a suitable wife, they will have to explain. Nearly every one of these young women has come here- to WORK, not to be made dolls of, and they have shown their pluck by travelling half round the round the world to get it. What excuse now have the old curmudgeons who have farms in out of the way places, and who cook their own miser- able chop of a morning, to smoke their solitary pipe in the middle of their square mile of land? Come down, like men, and look at their fresh rosy English faces, and offer them not only wages but a home. Women that can milk, sew, laugh, and cook, is what you selectors want, and here wey can be had for the asking. Ask and ye...

AT the Residence this evening the first fancy dress ball that has ever taken place in the Territory will be held. TnE newly-formed Good Templar's lodge appears to be assuming an important stage, for we hear that the member's roll now shows a total of 27 names. THE friends of Mr. King, surveyor, will doubtless be sorry to hear that he met with a nasty accident a few days, back by falling on an asphalte floor and breaking his collar bone. THE schooner "Black Hawk," Captain Beaver, arrived from Jones' Island on Wednesday morning with a number of Chinese coolies who had been working there. THE E. & A. Company's new steamer the " Airlie " arrived last night, but did not come to the ordinary anchorage till this morning. She is an exact counter- part of the " Guthrie," so that the dimensions of ...

A Come Down in Pianos. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

A Come Down in Pianos. There is one firm in Sydney which has affected a complete revolution in tho piano trade, and which now holds a big and an increasing share of public business. The proprietor of this business is Mr. Massey, jun., and he has one of tho 'largest and host selected stocks of pianos and organs in Sydney. Our experience has shown us the exhorbitant profits made by some of the George-st. firms, pianos costing something like ¿620 and ¿825 being sold for ¿640 and ¿650. Mr. Massey saw that a wider and larger business was to be done on a fairer system of business ; but it was difficult on first consideration how to save expenso and let tho public have the instruments at' prices which would only represent fair business commissions. Mr. Massey first of all hit upon tho expedient of having no great costly ware., house for city show, but rather a house of business conveniently situated, with extensive store warehouse, in tho neighbourhood of thc ships' wharves, from which sup...

A Famous Engineering Firm. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

A Famous Engineering Firm. It is an undoubted fact that in' all parts of tho ?world, wherever the solid value of English mechanism is recognised, the name and fame of Tangye Brothers are paramount. No firm of modern time, engaged in engineering work,' has won euch a wide business connection by freshness of design and excellence of work. The fact is admitted here in Australia, as in England, on the Continent, and in the States, that Tangye Brothers appear to have combined in all their principal patents entirely im- proved designs with more finished workmanship, in creased power and greater durability. The Tangye Bros. patents in steam engines and in pumps seem to have reached the highest state of perfection, and since boing introduced to Australia, they have al- most completely monopolised the market where downright excellence is regarded as the importan consideration. The Tangye steam pumps for hydraulic work, for mines, wool washing, &c.,areof unsurpassed merit, and have wo...

A SPECIMEN OF THE PEERAGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

A SPECIMEN OF THE PEERAGE. Thus a late English paper says :-It is an opportune moment when the- House of Peers is about asserting itself . above the will of the Commons to glance at every incident that may, tend to ¡lower the hereditary principle' in the estimation of the public. One of the most1 stariMng has lately presented itself in the case of. the Duke of Marlborough; It may be as well to state, in order that a contrast can be drawn, that a few days back a labouring man, who had been convicted of beating his wife because she had not prepared supper at the time he expected it, was sent to prison . for a month, the magistrate remarking that he was a ruffian and a ¡ brute, and expressed regret he had not the power of inflicting corporal punishment. No one will sympathize with the prisoner, who was very properly and very appro- priately designated " a ruffian and a brute." But at the same time, it seems strange that whilst one is thus punished and stigmatized, another who behaved i...

Telegraphic News. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ADELAIDE. OCTOBER 9. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

Telegraphic News. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ADELAIDE; OCTOBER 9. ' Lost week a barning ship in the river Volga, in Russia, when drifting down the stream, ignited several others, and caused considerable damage. On Thursday last two trains in India met on the line and an awful smash was the result. Sixty persons were killed and injured. In Queensland asimilar accident oc- curred near Brisbane on Friday, when the engine-driver and six passengers were injured. The collision is said to have been caused through the fault of the stationmaster in forgetting to detain one train for the other's arrival. Tht attack by the French fleet on Fort Keilung, Formosa, was -stoutly^re- sisted by the Chinese. The latter lost 200, while the loss on the French side is put down as only 18. In a severe engagement at Tonquin the French admit losing 30 men. The British Government are still un- decided about New Guinea. The Government of New South Wales have instructed the Agent-General for that colomy not to...

THE DALY RIVER MURDER. CAPTURE OF FIVE OF THE SUPPOSED MURDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

THE DALY RIVER MURDER. CAPTURE OF FIVE OF THE SUPPOSED MURDERERS. THE Government steamer " Palmerston returned from the Daly River-the scene of the terrible murders of a few weeks ago-on Monday morning, with five natives on board supposed to have had a hand in the deaths of the unfortunate copper miners. Upon the fact being made public gossip, universal satisfaction was expressed that the " Palmerston " had not her cruise for nothing, and that we were now in a fair way towards making that example to the comrades of the brutal murderers which it is on all sides admitted must sooner or later be made, if these horrible acts of whole-sale cold-blooded butchery are to be put down. The names of the captured members of the offending tribe are Jemmy, Tommy, Jacky, Daly, and Long-Legged Charley. From a physoig nomist's point of view we should say that for committing a murder they arc as capable-looking a lot of men as could well be found, and, moreover, when a reference is made to them regar...
