The Largest Aboriginal Tribe in South Australia. (From the Register.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 23 January 1874

The Largest Aboriginal Tribe in South Australia. (Ifroiu the Reyinter.) The author of this book is Mr. Samuel Gason, a police-trooper, Avho occupied a station in the vicinity of Lake Hope from the year 1865 until à few months back. His duties brought him into constant contact with the natives dwel- ling in that remote district, and as a relief from the monotony of his isolated position, Mr. Gason laid himself out "to collect all the information he could con- cerning them. Possessing peculiarly favorable opportunities for observation, he naturally gained a very complete and accurate acquaintance with . the habits and customs of the surrounding tribes. He mastered their language, carefully noted the characteristics of their social and political life, and en- quired into their laws, superstitions, and traditions. Justly considering that the information thus acquired Avould be of interest to others besides himself, he has embodied it in a book designed for pub- lication His reasons for ...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, JAN. 23, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 23 January 1874

Itotitlup aferritcrç iHimrs. PALMERSTON: FRTDAY, JAN. 23, 1874. That the duties of a newspaper in a young; settlement are liable to be mis- understood, even by well-informed per- sons, is a fact which has been made clear by statements at last Aveek's public meet- ings in this place. Some people evidently take it for granted that editors, reporters, and publishers are as much the servants of the public as they would be if they were Government clerks or officers of the police ; and that therefore they can be directed to do this, or "take down that," just as any person may order them. But this is a mistake. News- paper people conduct a business of their own, exactly as lawyers or doctors may conduct their business, and the public have no more right to interfere in the one case than in the other. This is so well understood in older communities that it would be laughable to have to insist upon it j but in this new colony the matter is not quite understood as yet. Another error which peop...

The Ellen Reef. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 23 January 1874

The Ellen Beef. TO THE EDITOR. öir-i was very niucn surprised to> read Mr. Crans.ton's letter ia your issue of January 22, wherein he claims to having discovered and opened up the Ellen line of reef. It is quite true that lie was on the ground before me and marked out a prospecting- claim. About a fortnight after the protection was granted Í rode over with him to see his claim, and saw a large quantity of bluish quartz on the surface, altogether not bad looking stone. I found that he with so small a party (3) had done a good bit of work, having- sunk a shaft several feet, but without success. He, however, told me that he had obtained colors in the surface dirt. He and I then followed the line of reef five or six hundred yards north, when we camd to a very promising looking rise. I liked the appearance of the stone here so well that I immediately said I should peg" out a prospecting claim, if it was sufficiently far enough away to allow me to do so. 1 Aveut out the next morning wi...

Goldfields Management. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 23 January 1874

Goldfields Management. We have received a long letter signed " John Anthony, leader for the North Australian Gold Prospecting and Mining Company, Limited; Certificated Inspec- tor of Mines for the Colony of Vic- toria, gazetted November, 1867." The object of the writer, in the first in- stance, as far as we can make out, is to show that he has not jumped any claim at the Stapleton, as stated in our issue of the 12th December by "Special Correspondent." He says :: " I must most emphatically deny the truth of his assertion. The vestarflag, bearing the charmed number ' 3/ and the name * Brinkworth/ suspended on its original supporter, a sapling, grow- ing tatler every day, still ' floats to the breeze ; ' and there within its area, bounded by five sttilwart ' pegs/ and called (as per regulations) * an ordinary quartz claim/ it keeps ' watch and Ward' over the 12 months' estate of its Erogenitor.

Henning's Grave. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 30 January 1874

Henning'a Grave. TO THfc EDITOR. Sir-I have occasion often to travel ! up and down the road to the goldfields, and 1 am sorry to notice that graves along the way side are fast increasing. I have also noticed that where the abodes of the departed have been pre- pared and maintained by individual care and reverence, they are neatly railed in with some simple inscription to tell the passer by the name of the deceased. But where the Government is called upon to discharge this duty a shameful negligence is visible. Henning, sup- posed to have been murdered by the natives, four or five month's ago, was possessed of some ¿300 at the time of the outrage, and was buried by the Govern- ment in the íude&t style. No attention has since been paid to the grave. There is no railing round the mouldering bones, no headstone to notify the oc- currence ; the grass is growing luxu- riantly over the: fresh earth, and, in a few months, there will be no trace of the spot where the remains of the m...

Coolie Labor. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 30 January 1874

Coolie Labor. TO TU 13 13IJ1101Î. Sir-Having read with interest an article in your paper dated January 2, upon »he introduction of Chinese and coolie labour for mining purposes, I wish to state that such labour would be a loss to the Companies. In the first in- stance mining is hard work which they will not do, and it wonld take a long time to attain the abilities of a practical miner. Secondly, I think it unlikely that the shareholders in Adelaide, after expending so much money-some of which, no doubt, they expect to see again returned to Adelaide-would be willing to rush into expenses to assist large landholders to cultivate their soil. I feel confident such would be the case if such labour was imported. There is no doubt in time Adelaide would reap a good harvest if they were to introduce coolies for growing tropical produce. But for mining work they are no good. For instance, you will find persons tak- ing large contracts for railway cuttings, tunnels, or any hard work in India ...

Indignation Meeting. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 30 January 1874

Indignation Meeting. TO TUE IDIIÜB. Sir-As an admirerol "Grumbler's" taste in the indignation line, and believing that his appeal to Mr. Bogle will be met by a negative, 1 would beg to make a suggestion, and one which I think suitable. The Warden's Cour; is closed by a fiat of the wiseacres, and until reblest with the dulcet intonations and persuasive eloquence of the Modern Demosthenes, of under the verandah celebrity, why let it be dubbed " Indignation Hall," and used for the public good. Then might the public have their lill of thumpings and stamp- ings on the entrance into the arena of such men as denounce " hanging Jeffries;" wipe their eyes over the musty parchment called "Magna Char- ta;" or, like Punch's friend Libby, allow the full weight ot his eyeglass to fall on.its little twist suspender on the least allusion to a breach of the Hritish Con- stitution by anyone but himself; or patting the hide of the old lion through the bars of his cage, with a sharp look out at his paw...

Our Police. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 30 January 1874

Our Police. IO THE EOUOK. Sir-A few issues ago I noticed in your paper an article from a corres- pondent at Yam Creek on the maraud- ing incursions of the blacks in that neighborhood. The account was sen- sational, and the writer took advantage of the occasion to indulge in some sarcastic and uncomplimentary remarks respecting the police. In the first place, the story about the blacks reads very well at a distance ; but many who reside at Yam Creek are of opinion that the blacks are more sinned against than sinning, and think that if they had been differently deait with at first they would have been auite as harmless as the niggers of Southport or Palmerston. Blackfellows will steal; they do not regard pilfering as a sin, but there are manys ways of checking this vice beside savage maltreatmeut. There may be occasions on which firmness is absolutely necessary with the natives, when they must be taught that the whitefellow is master and not to be trifled with ; but to hunt them down ...

South Australian Justice. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-In asking for a short space in your columns I have no intention whatever of entering into any of the particulars of the mining suit in which myself and others are plaintiffs, being perfectly well aware that it is contrary to the practice of journalism to publish circumstances approaching evidence in cases snbjudice. My object is simply to show to how much expense and annoyance either plaintiff or defendant may be subject in the endeavor to obtain a hearing, redress, or justice in the present state of the law in the Northern Territory. As far back as the 8th of November, 1872, myself and others lodged an objection to the granting of a cer- tain lease to the Northern Territory Pros- pecting Company. The Government Resi- dent, Captain Douglas, happened to be absent at the Roper at the time, and Dr. Millner, who acted as locum tenens, replied that a Warden was expected to arrive in a few days who would adjudicate on all such cases. At length ...
