FISTIANA. [From Bell's Life on the " Moonta."] [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 16 January 1869
FISTIANA. [From Bell'ss Life on the " Moonta."] The revival of the noble art of Self- defence will be hailed with delight by &nbsp; patrons of the P.R. During the last week some very pretty mills have taken place, in which an amount of science was displayed that was very creditable to novices. A game battle between the Northern Mosquito and the Moonta Giraffe caused considerable excitement ; but the disadvantage of size which the former laboured under rendered the result a certainty. The most pro- minent event of the week was the mill between the Trigonometry Swell and the Junior Slasher, which came off on Wednesday. There was a consider- able amount of betting, which com- menced slightly in favour of the Slasher. On peeling, the Swell evidently &nbsp; seemed in best condition and well up to &nbsp; his work, the Slasher being too fleshy and showing want of training. On coming to the seratch the Slasher lost no time in going in and delivering his left well on ...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Per Aquamarine Telegraph.] Adelaide, January 11th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 16 January 1869
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Per Aquamarine Telegraph.] Adelaide, January 11th, 1869. Great preparations for the reception of Sir James Fergusson. The Mayor has ordered a new coat. The Town Council has voted 4s. 6d. for the purchase of fireworks. There will be a Royal Salute of two guns, and the sentry at Government House will present arms. Adelaide, January 12th, 1869. Sir James Fergusson has arrived. Immense excitement. All the small boys of Adelaide turned out en masse. Ten thousand School children sang " Hey diddle diddle'' with grand effect. The new Governor seemed delighted with the appearance of the Town Hall as soon as it was explained to him that the tower was not originally intended for a pepper-castor. Adelaide, January 13th, 1869. The Governor visited the Exhibition of the Society of Arts, and afterwards happily remarked that the South Aus- tralians were the most artless people he had met with.

PROBLEMS, &c. &nbsp; The solutions will be published in our next, with the initials of those answering correctly. Answers must be sent to the Editor by the Thursday following publication. 1. Find a point within a triangle from which the three sides shall subtend equal angles. 2. A snail commences to climb up a pole 2 feet 7 inches in height, and in the night he climbs 16 inches, but in the day the heat causes him to slip down 15 inches. How long will he be getting to the top ?
STARTLING OCCURRENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 16 January 1869
STARTLING OCCURRENCES. On Wednesday morning a young gentle- man, famed in Adelaide for the accuracy and neatness of his attire, but latterly deficient in those respects, was observed to wash him- self. Another young gentleman, ofter under- going the same process, appeared in a clean shirt ! It was evident this betokened something unusual, and much curiosity was evinced as to the result. We are happy to hear that neither of the gentlemen have suffered from their unwonted exertions. On Sunday morning a gentleman fancied he saw land on the starboard quarter, but as no one else could see it he was taken to the Doctor, who, after a careful examination, gave it as his opinion that it was an optical delusion &nbsp; caused by a piece of dirt in the gentleman's eye; it was therefore suggested that it was probably an eye-land.

ORIGINAL CONUMDRUMS. 1. Why was Paul Hoppo like a gun? 2. What fowls if sick on board this vessel are like shell-fish ? 3. Why is the journey to the Northern Territory like a carrot ? 4. Why are clever surveyors like half-starved dogs ? 5. Why is water in a ship's hold like a man in prison ? 6. Why was Mr. Spriggs, on Sunday last, like a dead man at sea ? Published by "W. M. HARDY, for the Editor and Proprietor, WILLIAM FISHER, at the Office, Ship Moonta, every Saturday Morning.
The Moonta Herald. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 16 January 1869
SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1869. UNTIL the last three or four years the history of North Australia has not for a long period been brought very promi- nently before the public ; and as it is highly probable that our readers are unacquainted with the attempts that have previously been made to settle that Territory, we subjoin a short account of the various expeditions that have been dispatched for that purpose and the success attending each of them. The first expedition of which we have any record was dispatched by the British Government from Sydney, in August, 1824, under charge of Captain J. J. G. Bremer, in H.M.S. Tamar, and arrived at Port Essington, which is situated about 90 miles N.E. of Adam Bay, but failing to obtain a supply of fresh water they proceeded at once to Melville Island, exactly opposite Escape Cliffs, distant about twenty miles, and formed the settlement of Fort Dundas in Apsley Straits. This place was, however, abandoned on 31st March, 1829, after an existence of fou...

MERCANTILE REPORT. January 16th, 1869. On Monday there was a forced sale of Cake and Cheese at nominal prices ; as there is but a small parcel left, the holder declines to part with it at the same price. Hay.-There has been an average demand during the week. No sales ; but a good deal of chaffing. Spirits.-Several attempts have been made to effect sales. There seems to be an in- creasing demand for the article, but holders are firm and will not part. Beer and Porter.-Several parcels have changed hands during the week. Some heavy sales were effected on Wednesday. Sheep.-There is a slight downward ten- dency, but prime wethers realise full prices.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 23 January 1869
TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I have to suggest that a meeting be held to consider Dr. Peel's proposition of forming a Philharmonic Society, and that in the event of its being agreed to, a committee be appointed to select and send to Adelaide &nbsp; by the first opportunity for such music as may &nbsp; be deemed necessary. Though many in the &nbsp; field will be absent from the Main Camp, I &nbsp; believe there will be occasions for our meeting and practising, and members could keep up the &nbsp; practise of their respective parts on return to the outlying camps. I believe that such a Society would be a source of enjoyment to many in the Northern Territory, and would relieve the ennui of the homeward voyage. I am, Sir, &c., D. DANIEL DALY.

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Will you kindly use your influence to &nbsp; suppress the terpsichorean amusements which are almost invariably indulged in by some unthoughtful wight every morning about 6 a.m. in Cuddy Square. Of late the nuisance has become intolerable, disturbing the rest of the peaceful inhabitants. I would suggest the advisability of placing Police Constables John Smith and Mike O'Flaherty, two most diligent and energetic officers, to watch that locality every morning, for at least three hours before breakfast time. By inserting this you will greatly oblige one who after 7 o'clock invariably indulges in JUST FORTY WINKS.

OUR HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 23 January 1869
OUR HEALTH. IT may be of some use to our numerous readers to bear in mind a few of the ills that flesh is heir to, and more especially those which are likely to predominate in the land we are going to. Under such circumstances, a few words on the subject of "attention to health" may &nbsp; not be out of place. We will, therefore, commence by advising strict cleanliness, not only to the body, but also by re- moving as far as possible from the camp, all refuse matter, dirty water, &c. Bathing in convenient places, either early in the morning or after sunset, will conduce to free action of the skin, which in all climates is a matter of the greatest importance if you wish to retain your health. Next, avoid, when much heated, sitting in draughts, or suddenly throwing off your clothing; wait until you are somewhat cool, for &nbsp; any sudden chill to the body by check- ing perspiration may produce most serious results. Avoid drinking largely of fluids of any kind, ...

Mr. Woolsack, Q.C., for prosecution, and Sergeant Bigwig for the defence. Mr. Woolsack in opening the case, enlarged on the dastardly nature of the outrage ; &nbsp; and eloquently described the evil effects of &nbsp; such disturbances on the public mind, con- cluding a splendid oration with the following beautiful passage, " I shall ask your Lordships to make example of these miscreants-hang the vagabonds as high as Haman, and then make them learn the four first verses of Dr. Watts's beautiful nursery rhyme, com- mencing :- " How doth the little busy bee Delight to bark and bite."

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Per Aquamarine Telegraph.] Adelaide, 20th January, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Moonta Herald and Northern Territory Gazette — 23 January 1869
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Per Aquamarine Telegraph.] Adelaide, 20th January, 1869. &nbsp; Sea Ripple has sailed for the Northern Territory. She takes a large consign- ment of medical comforts, consisting of three tins of jam, one tin of sardines, &nbsp; &nbsp; two bottles of rum (supposed to be the &nbsp; same intended for the men on Thurs- day). Adelaide, 22nd January, 1869. Sir James Fergusson dined yesterday with the Mayor and Corporation, and is severely indisposed this morning. The symptoms are somewhat similar to those &nbsp; of Asiatic Cholera, accompanied by violent headache. This sudden attack is said to have been caused by His Excellency incidentally drinking by mistake a decoction called Colonial Wine. Fatal results are not anti- cipated.
