Australia Goes for the Best. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Australia Goes for the Best. The truest proof of a country's etabüity ia to aee it always going for the best. The metropolis of Sydney is a fair indication of the people generally. There ia no city in the world which gives a warmer or more genuine reception to talent either physical or mental, than that solid go-a-head city on the waters of Port Jackson. In point of fact Australia owns no flag in the world of ability, and extends to tiw best, always its fit reception. We hail the cricketer with his bat, the footballer with, his football, and the champion oarsman with his boat. Friend or foe we cheer him when he winB ; and worthily defeated, we cheer him still. We go for the best always ; the best agricultural implements, the best mining machinery, and for our railways tile beet engines and rolling stock. And here is a curious fact, the locomotive built by George Stevenson, is the locomotive of to-day. Brass ornaments and different shapes may change the appearance of the thing; but G...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. Awording to the RUSSIAN COURIER, pub- lished at St. Petersburg, lively negotiations are now proceeding between Persia and Bussis on the one hand, and Russia and England on the other, with respect to the delimitation of the frontier between Merve and Afghanistan. In Paris recently, a well-dressed man of aristocratic bearing went round the jeweller's shops accompanied by a servant. The valet informed the storekeeper that hie master was a Terr wealthy man, but, unfortunately, a kleptomaniac, so to keep an eye on him, and everything he abstracted would either be returned or paid for. The Count " made some purchases, and also stole s few trinkets I which were always immediately returned by the obliging servant. This went on for a few days, until the confidence of the shopkeeper was obtained. One fine afternoon the " Count" helped himself to ¿wo very valuable diamond ringi. This time neither master nor man returned. The recent Walworth murder in England, committed in the da...

Parliament-colonial parliament ' at least, is never made up of more than three parties. The.Ministry that is in, tries to do something. The Ministry that is out, tries to stop them.

CHASING THE BLACKFELLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

CHASING THE BLACKFELLOWS. FROM the last number of the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL we clip the following account of the chase after the natives who committed the recent outrage at Alice Springs. lt is taken from the telegraphed report of Mounted-Constable Wilshire of Alice Springs, who says under date Sept. 16:- "I returned to-day from Annas Reser- voir and the west. I tracked the natives who speared Figg and Coombes and burned the station down. I travelled 330 miles from water to water. On August 24, I came upon a camp with four lubras and some children, 20 miles from Benstead's present camp, and 30 miles west of Annas Reservoir. I took them to prevent them from warning the others, whom I wanted. This proved to be a good plan as the lubras gave me the information I wanted. On August 29 before daybreak we led our horses quietly to the foot of the range, ready to surprise the big camp and arrest the offenders for whom I held warrants. Our trackers discovered their camp by climbing the bi...

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

Woman Items. And this is how they talk in the States of our own goddess :-" Emily Melville, having been abroad for several years, and having been forgotten by the grandfathers and grandmothers of the pre- sent generation, is on her way home to bewitch the audiences of the present day with her youth and beauty-neither of which qualities have decreased during the past half century." The French Crown jewels were pat on exhibition in Paris previous to being disposed of at j auction. Among them were the brooch Napoleon wore at his coronation, the jewels of Josephine and Marie Lcuise, subsequently worn as a girdle by Eugenie ; diamonds which formerly belonged to the regalia of Louis XIV., and a magnificent Bwordhilt presented by the Bey of Algiers. The police reports in the Viennese papers sometimes afford subject for consideration in one sense. A young woman married to an inferior employee lately complained to the magistrates of the ill-treatment to which she was subjected by her husband...

A TALE OF THE SOUTHERN SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

A TALE OF THE SOUTHERN SEAS. The following is going the round of the European Press :-In October last two natives "boys" named Toolah and Eeyola were brought on board the Alfred Vittery from an island called Malata. They seemed half starved and cowed, went down quietly into the main hold with the other recruits when dusk came on, and passed a tranquil night. In the morning after break- fast some act of the new chum Eeyola brought upon him the ridicule of his more civilized companions. Eeyola, becoming irritated, took up the breakfast tins and ?threw them at the jeering men, and his violence increasing, a stampede, of the labour boys to the upper deck of the vessel ensued. Toolah, who had scrambled up with the rest, was then sent down to try and pacify his mate, but he too became infected with Keyola's excitement and took to throw- ing tins at the recruits who were crowding down the hatchway after him". But as tht med advanced to overpower them, the twc boys seem to have been seized ...

CRITICISING A DUKE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

CRITICISING A DUKE. Henry George enjoys the felicity of tear- ing a duke to pieces, in the Joly number of the NINETEENTH CENTÜBY, His Grace of Argyle, who dabbles in literature, had the temerity to criticise Mr George's " Progress and Poverty " in a previous number of the same periodical, and now the American scalps him with a sharpened tomahawk. Referring to the Duke's boast of his own paternal benevolence as a landlord, Mr. George says :-" Take Scotland, of which tiie duke is one of the largest proprietors. What, then, are the results of this private : property in land ? That wild beasts have supplanted human beings ; that glens which once set forth their thousand fighting men are now tenanted by a couple of game keepers ; that there is destitution and degradation that would shame savages ; that little children are stunted for want of proper nourishment ; that women are com- pelled to do the work of animals ; that young girls who ought io be fitting them- selves for wifehood and m...

Flesh of the Other. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

Flesh of the Other. This sort of thing, thank Heaven, couldn't happen in Sydney. There, the ordinary beef-eater pays nothing. And this is why beef is so cheap -the chief buyers are in league with, some owners of cattle stations. The drought has come down heavily on the squatters, and they MUST have money. The banks won't lend it to them under about ll per cent on fair security, and won't lend anything at all unless the big wholesale buyers see their paper right. Once the cattle holder gets into their hands, the wholesale butchers can do what they please. The suburban butcher is bluffed out of the market, the big fellows knowing they can control the supply, make them pay a ridiculously high price for the second quality of meat, and then go and sell the very best at a low ratf-for a time. Every householder then wants to know from the suburban butcher, why he charges so much. The reply is-" got to do it." The householder, not knowing at what disadvantage his butcher is, simply calls it...

A RELIGIOUS LUNATIC. - TPIloiifondaaj^uly 5.-This city is greatly excited over the most scandalous affair ' .'wtích has yet cropped out from the Orange . National fends. Daring Vespers, in one of -the Catholic churches, and while the priest was chanting the "Magnificat," a man entered the church door, and yelled at the top of his voice, " Look out you d-d "..Papist!" This horrible invocation para- lysed the service, and caused the started ' worshippers to turn to the door. Then the ; intruder ran with all his might down the centre aisle, howling and cursing as he went. He reached the Sanctuary rail before any of the frightened people could intercept him. With a bound he passed over the rail, and rah up the steps to the Altar. This he .: attacked with the vigor of frenzy, and succeeded in breaking to fragments the pieces ' standing outside the Tabernacle. He then . leaped upon the altar table and cursed the people and priest. Disrobing himself of his coat he danced upon the altar, an...

CRUMBS AND CRUST. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

CRUMBS AND CRUST. (By A TBAMF.) ," ANYTHING Fresh ? " " No ! nothing whatever. Awful dull times ! " You know very well, Mr. Editor, what that means. You know by experience that the answer is by no means consoling to yourself ; and you know, likewise, that the query is asked about (to take it mildly) two or three dozens times a week. And yet you can muster up courage and audacity to request me, as a particular friend, to help " fill up " for you. " Never mind what you write about ; it'll all help. Trot it along as soon as you can and I will intimate to my successors that unless they everlastingly pray for you, I shall cut them off with a penny in my will." That is what you said to me, and therefore, out of respect for the surviving relics of your dear self, I shall contribute " Crumbs and Crust " to help feed the desires of a hungry public. But how to start is the query ! It is proverbial what a dearth of material there is here to work upon with that mighty instrument the pen. A murd...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. THE CHOLERA OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

IÄT NEWS BY THE MAIL. "-- -: . THE CHOLERA OUTBREAK. - America has been visited by at least three cholera epidemics, and each has come after just such premonitions of its approach as we are seeing at the present time. Cholera does not appear in America when it is in Europe, but when it has once left its native swamps and jungles, it does not seem possible to stop it. An epidemic be r gah in Bengal in 1841 ; it appeared in Af- ghanistan in 1844, in Persia in 1845, and in Russia in 1846. It was not till] 1848 that it found lodgment in Germany, from whence it was carried to France, and then by a ship from Havre to New Orleans, from which city'it spread through all the Western States as far even as San Francisco, the mortality everywhere being terrible. It has travelled more rapidly than that, however, for in 1865 it started from India, and reached New York in 1866 ; and it is to be noted that then as now, the disease found a congenial abode in Marseilles and other Mediterranean ports f...
