Rotumah is an island eight miles long and two wide, 300 miles north of Fiji, containing a population of 2,900, a large proportion of whom . are women, a continual drain of the young men. constantly going on to supply seamen for vessels in all parts of the Pacific.

THE MASSACRE IN NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

THE MASSACRE EN' NEW CALEDONIA. The correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald at Noumea writes as follows : — ' July 9. — The Depeche, coasting steamer, arrived from Bourail at noon, and much excitement was caused by the report at once industriously circulated in the town, that the tribes to the north of Bourail had taken up the revolt, and the whites had tied alter killing 14 natives. The facts were of a far happier nature, more gratifying than otherwise. Two powerful tribes who have been in a chronic state of fighting during a year or two. had entered into a more serious combat than usual, in which the proprietor of the station upon which the engagement took place had been compelled to take part, probably in defence of his home and the tribe amongst whom he waa located, who in such a moment perhaps morally enforced his aid. There is no doubt that a number of. the natives were shot. The cause of this access of fury in tribe against tribe was the taking of a young woman by a brothe...

HORRORS IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

HORRORS IN THE BUSH. The Lower Flinders correspondent of the Brisbane Courier, writing on the 7th July, describes the following sad case of suffering and death on the Cloncurry. Some time in the month of February last three men, having one horse and two small canvas bags of water between them, left that field 'with the intention of proceeding to Charters Towers ; but, unfortunately, they started on a wrong track. At length, becoming convinced of this, and having, as they supposed, an idea of the direction in which the proper track lay, they left the one they had been following, thinking to cut the right road by making through the bush. JJowever, after. .wandering about two days, without finding either track or water, they realised the fact of their being in a very serious position. On the evening of the second day it was arranged that one of the party should tak'e horse and look for water, the other two agreeing to stay in camp and make a large fire, to serve as a beacon for their m...
