SOUTHPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

SOUTHPORT. A great change has taken place in Southport during the last eighteen months. The one Government shed and the bit of a jetty which used to constitute the whole of the buildings in that place have now been supplemented by stores, dwelling-houses, and tents to a degree which clearly makes South- port the important second town of North Australia. It is the mining country, of course, which has started this place into existence, and upon the mines it must stand or fall. At present th.*re is a great bustle going on. Parties are starting for the reels, and others are coming down for supplies, and, amongst other business, there is an amount of, drinking going on which is far from beneficial. Most of the men knocking about have been receiving good wages, and in addition to this, some of them are said to have made lucky linds of alluvial gold Í but on that point it is impossible to obtain positive evidence, j Some of the Southport stores are no paltry buildings : the store belonging...

IMPORTATION OF LABOR. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

IMPORTATION OF LABOR. TO THE EDITOR. Su"-Being about to leave, I thought I would write a few Unes on a subject which has occu- pied my attention for some time, trusting you will tuake room for it in your open column. I fusel convinced that with white labor we ; shall not be able to develop the resources of this vast country. That the men cannot work as tiley should like Í6 admitted by themselves. ! The heat is too great, and it most, and does cause ' a languid feeling to creep over them, taking their strength away. The difficulty of getting sufficient sleep is no doubt one cause of it ; and the fact of so many returning, not liking the climate, is a fact in itself to prove that some change is necessary. Now would it not be desir- able for the various companies to send for as many Chinese or Malays as they require. This could be done very easily just now if the com- panies would unite and take the matter up (if it is premature, let it be considered) ; but I am strongly convinced that...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

MISCELLANEOUS. A Playful Game.—The Madrid people are An elderly gentlemen last week had his eyes suddenly covered in the streets by some one behind, who playfully said, " Who is it ? Guess." He went on guessiug through the round of his friends, when the playful being behind darted off, and left the old gentleman of Spain still bewildered, and thinking who it could be. He found out when he got home, and missed a pocketbook with 1,500 francs in it, also a gold repeater and handsome chain and seals. As hot weather creates the desire for some cooling and refreshing beverage, it may not be uninteresting to give a recipe for delicious and slightly aperient effervesing citrate of magnesia. Thoroughly mix three ounces of powdered loaf sugar with two ounces of powdered citric acid, then add three ounces of calcined magnesia, one ounce a*>ù naif of bi-carbonate of soda, and one ounce and half of tartaric acid. Pass the whole thrice through a fine sieve, and then moisten it with very strong...

FROM PORT ADELAIDE TO PORT DARWIN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

FROM PORT ADELAIDE TO PORT DARWIN. BY JASON. On Saturday, the 11th October, tne Gothenburg, screw steamer, commanded by Captain Pearce, left the wharf at Port Ade- laide, with about 80 passengers on board, for the new colony now forming at Port Darwin, on this side o£ the Australian continent. Other steamers and ships had sailed to the same place before, but in this departure of the Gothenburg there was something more than usually significant. She had on board the new Government Resident, with his wife and family, besides a large sprinkling of independent settlers, who were going to build up new homes on the far distant shores of the Indian Ocean. People really felt, as this steamer slowly left the wharf and glided down the river, that she was bent on no ordinary mission, and that the-passengers who thronged her decks and waved their adieux, in reply to,the loud remarks from those on shore, were going with ready hands and earnest minds, to their great work of colonization on the oth...

OPENING OF PALMERSTON WESLEYAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

OPENING OF PALMERSTON WESLEYAN CHURCH. On Sunday, November 2nd, divine service was held for the first time in the building re- cently erected by the Wesleyans in the township of Palmerston. The Rev. Mr. Bogle preached both in the morning and evening, and at the latter service the building was filled. The musical part of the service was managed by an efficient choir, with a good harmonium, the notes of which swelled out grandly through the trees which surround the building. This structure is of wood, covered by an iron roof, and will accomodate about 200 persons. There are plenty of doors and windows, and the   ventilation is therefore sufficient. No bell has yet been added to the building, but as a sub- stitute an iron bar has been suspended to a tree outside, and this is struck upon with another iron bar when the congregation is to called together, which of course sounds some   thing like the "Anvil Chorus " done very     slowly. ...

ARRIVAL AND RECEPTION OF THE GOVERNMENT RESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

ARRIVAL AND RECEPTION OF THE GOVERNMENT RESIDENT. Ou Saturday morning, Nov. 1st, the people of Palmerston (or such of them as were not already up and taking their baths) were roused from their beds and hammocks by the booming of a gun, which, on enquiry was found to be from the steamship Gothenburg, as she steamed smartly into the harbor, with the Government Resident and his family on board, together with a large number of other passengers, who had arrived from Adelaide, Melbourne, and New- castle. Dr. Millner, Acting Government Resi- dent, Mr. Knight, the Secretary to the Government Resident, and other offi- cers, as well as many private settlers, im- mediately went on board, and made arrangements for an official reception as early as possible on shore, where im- mediately on landing Mr. Scott might read his commission, and thus be for- mally installed in his office. In accordance with the foregoing ar- rangement Mr. Scott, accompanied by Mrs. Scott, landed from the steamer, &a...

TOWN TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

TOWN TALK. BY RAMBLER. Gentle Public,—Rambler begs to intro- duce himself to your favourable notice, and trusts you will bear with him in all his faults. He intends during the time he is before the public of the Northern Territory to cry down abuses (of which at present there are not a few) to the best of his ability, and trusts that those who may feel aggrieved by his remarks will take what is said in good part, and amend accordingly. With this brief preface, Rambler launches himself on the Sea of Litera- ture, hoping to arrive safely at anchor in the haven of public favor. There is an old saying, and a true one,— " The early bird catches the worm "—How- ever, Palmerston, on Saturday morning last, realised the fact, when the Gothenburg steamed up the bay, taking us all by sur- prise, at the unearthly hour of 6 o'clock in the morning—utterly regardless of the fact that the arrangements for the reception of our new Resident were not by any means complete—in fact a chaotic mass of pol...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, NOV. 14, 1873. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 14 November 1873

Northern Territory Times PALMERSTON : FRIDAY, NOV. 14, 1873. NORTH AUSTRALIA now bids fair to take her place amongst the colonies of Great Britain. What the Imperial Govern- ment have desired for the last forty years, and what they have vainly at- tempted in their settlements at Melville Island, Port Essington, and Raffles Bay, is at length being accomplished by a handful of people from the other side of the continent. It is to the present population of twelve or fourteen hun- dred people that the credit will belong of founding the first British colony on the Australian shores of the Indian Ocean ; for although other persons have visited Port Darwin and praised its situation and climate, yet it is only now that the true work of coloni- zation has been commenced. For   several years officers of Government, Telegraph constructors, and trading speculators have come and gone, but now private settlers are bringing their wives and families to the country for the purpose of ma...

Melville Island. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Melville Island. In a book published not long since, en- titled " The Malayan Arcliipelago," by Mr. Wallace, the writer-who is an authority on the subject-says that the soil and general character of Melville Island are far superior to those of the mainland. On the same sub- ject Mr. Earl says in his book :-" Melville Island, which lies at the mouth of Van Diemen'a Gulf, is nearly ninety miles long and forty miles wide at its broadest point. It is separated from Bathurst Island, lying to the west, by a narrow strait leading into the Gulf, which is navigable. It was on the Melville Island shore of this strait that an establishment of . troops and convicts from Sydney was formed in the year 1824, and was maintained until 1829, when the party was withdrawn and the stock removed to llaffles Bay on the Coburg Peninsula, where a second establishment of the same nature had been formed in 1827. The in- terior of the island was not explored, as the natives were found to be very formidable, an...
