The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 16 November 1883
^lic |j¡orlli ^uslraliaii. FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 16. -* THE dreadful fate which has befallen the party sent out to search for the aboriginal who murdered Martin a few weeks ago, has struck on us like a thunderclap, and the untimely end of these poor fellows is deplored throughout our community. The account of their sufferings and trials is reported fully in auother column, written and despatched to G. R. McMinu, Esq., Acting Govern- ment Resident, by Mr. A. W. Giles, who, together with his blackboy, were the only survivors out of a party of eight ; and, indeed, it seems to have been a very Providential in- terference that kept the two sur- vivors alive to this day. Perhaps if we lived in a country where inhabi- tants are counted by tens and hun- dreds of millions, the blow would not fall no heavily on us, but, as the Territory is at present, tho death of any member of tho white population is like a drop of thc country's life- blood lost. Six deaths at once, and under such terribl...

A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 16 November 1883
A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. ÏIIK following ghastly tragedy is re- corded in a late English paper :-On the 8th August, at ahout half past 5 or G o'clock p.m., a shooting crime was per- petrated at St. James's-street, Wal thamstow, a father having drowned tliree of his ehildïen- Charles, aged ÎÎJ years ; Herbert, 2J years ; and Frederick, aged 16 months-and so seriously assaulted two others-twin boys only seven days old-that one of them died shortly after- wards, ansi the death of the second was hourly expected, lt seems that at No. 8, Courtney-place-terrace, in a small courtway near St. James station there resided a blacksmith named William Çîouldstone, aged 13, who was employed by a firm in Lower Thaires-street City. Last night week his wife was confined of twins, and she had a woman in the house to nurse her. About G o'clock last (.vening Gouldstono returned homeraiher earlier than usual. He.seemed in a very bad mood, and said to the nurse; that he wanted her out. of the house while he had...
CRICKET. SOUTHPORT v. PALMERSTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 16 November 1883
CRICKET. SOUTHPORT v. PALMERSTON. TUE return match between tho above elevens was played on the Southport club's ground on Friday last, Prince of Wales' Birthday, and is thus reported by " One of Us*": After a very noisy process of muster- ing at about four a.m., we managed to get all aboard at six, and a start was at once made for the convincing ground at Southport. Our men were in the best of spirits, even at that carly hour, and all helped to enliven the trip with songs, music (of which a large and varied as- sortment was on board), spinning yarns, .fcc., until the jetty (?) at Southport was reached at ten a.m. Here we weixi mot by our opponents and nearly the whole of the populace, who tendered us a hearty three times three and then es- corted us to quarters. I must say that the erection at Southport named a jetty is rather an awkward sample of a land- ing place, and one does not require an inside lining of anything stronger than water to enable him to accomplish with safety the ...

THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 23 November 1883
THINGS AND OTHERS. Br advertisement in another column it will oe seen that Mr. Fred Griffiths is about starting business on his on a account, both in Palmerston and at the Beefs. Mr. Grilliths is very well and favorably known in the Territory, especially up country, and wc hope that his venture will prove successful. CniARisi's circus and menagerie passed through, for south per s s. Euxine ou Sim day last. A great many townspeople went aboard to ha\-e a peep at the show, which appears to have been replenished to a great extent since we last saw it. Just previous to arriving here the company lost one of the most valuable of their performing horses. A CASE of rather an unusual description came ho foro J. G. Knight. Esq.. S.M., and Dr. Morice, .T.P., at thc Police Court this morning. It appears that Mr. J. W.

TOOLS USED IN BUILDING THE PYRAMIDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 23 November 1883
TOOLS US KD TX MUrLDIXG THE ! PIM!AM IDS. j Duuixf: a resilience of two winters in a tomi» at f.Uzeh, W. M. Flinders Petrie collected evidence showing that the tools used iu working stone 1000 years ago were constructed with a jewel as the cutting edge'. J l e stated his reasons for coining to this conclusion in a paper read before the Anthropological Institute, a itKSUMK of which is published in a recent issue of ËN&lt;:iN*Ki-:i&lt;Iii(i, of Loudon. Solid and tubular drills, straight anil circular disc saws, and lathe tools were made with jewels set in metal. Thc lines of cutting on a granite core made by a tubular drill form a con- tinuous spiral, the grooves being of a uniform depth and width throughout, showing that the cutting point was not worn as the work advanced. The re- gular taper of the core would indicate that jewels were also set upon the out- side and inside of the drill, thereby facilitating its removal. Tn some speci- mens of granite the drills sank ...

The case in itself is finished and done with, and hus nothing", directly, to do with future proceeding's: but the actions of two or three members of our police force towards the dé- fendant, Scarsbriek, while out on bail, have been painted in such "darincr colours by a writer in the N.
