Sporting News. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 October 1883
137 nominations lia ve been received for thc Caulfield (Vic.) Cup. ' In a fight recently, between Sullivan, thc American champion, and Slade, thc Maori, the latter was badly beaten in three rounds. Hanlan, the champion sculler, lias signified his wilingncss to row Laycock anywhere, on condition of ¿£300 being allowed him for expenses. Owing to a fall in thc river in Massa- chusetts on August 20, the professional sculling race wa;; postponed to Saturday, and was not started until nearly six o'clock in thc evening, owing to rough water and a stiff breeze. The men were called back after a false start. Some returned, but others, including Hanlan, Hosmer, and Teenier, rowed over the course. Another race wras or- dered, and Hanlan took the lead and turned thc buoy first, followed closely by Ross and Hosmer, the others not far off. An excursion steamer from Providence ran among the boats, and the swell from its paddle-wheels upset Hanlan Elliot, and Hosmer. Darkness coming on rapidly, it w...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 21st, 1883. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 October 1883
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OAVX CORRESPONDENT.) October 21st, 1SS3. GRAXD showers of rain have fallen during the past week, and already the grass is some inches high. The relief to thc eye from the brown dry appear- ance to the bright green tinge is quite rcfrcsliing. I am glad to say that these showers have been general throughout thc mining districts. Several men have been taken on at the Grove Hill Company's claims during the week, and the managci*, Mr. Stevens, has started opérations on the CoinpanjT's Margaret claims. The battery is nearly ready, and there is about one hundred tons of quartz at grass for the stampers to commence upon. The telegraph repairing party is now at work just beyond the Shackle. Mr. A. Pybus, tho overseer, is to be credited with having put in some good sub- stantial work. I think it would prove a considerable saving if tho Telegraph Department were to replace the wooden poles with iron ones, more especially on these sections near the coa...

FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. TWELVE-MILE. AU that is wanted to make things lively is some good heavy showers. There must he a Jonah or a Johanna in the camp, or some other misfortunes hovering round us as wc have had none of the abundance of water that has been falling around us ; even thc creeks refuse to scud down their supplies. Mr. Adam Johns has got all thc tim- ber in for sawing for thc quartz shoot As soon as sawing operations are com- pleted thc battery will start work crush- ing. All ,thc claims arc looking very well ; there is plenty of stone ready for crushing, and more than enough eau bc got out to keep thc battery going full time. Landers, 3Tughcs,'and Blair have taken a tribute of tho Hongkong claim for five years, and arc busily engaged in putting in a tunned to cut the reef at a low level. It is to be hoped they will pick up thc rich gold again, as their enterprise deserves success. Landers and Hughes are also working out thc balance of thc New Era tribute. EXTENDED U...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 26. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 October 1883
FRIDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 26. j REVIEWING the speech, made by Mr. W. V. Smith at the preliminary I meeting of the Northern Territory I.Association at Adelaide we cannot [refrain from tendering our thanks .to .him for speaking, up. so ably on behalf of the Territory. Anyone reading Mr. «Smith's remarks with reference to telegraphic communi- cation could tell at once that he was an old Territorian, and therefore knew exactly what it was to live in a place wkei'o mailboats were like angels' visits, and where telegrams are charged for at tho exhorbitant rates which rule here. It is an ex- traordinary freak of Governmental policy to condemn a place like the Northern Territory to almost abso- lute. seclusion from the rest of the known world for five, or six weeks at .a stretch ; but such is, and has been all along, the policy of the South ?Australian Government towards this portion of tho province. Ju Po-t Darwin, where the news of the world! flashes through daily, any reason-, able mortal ...
