Palmerston Jetty. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 20 February 1874

Palmerston Jetty. TO TUB EDITOIt. Sir-I am credited with the author- ship of a letter appearing in your last week's issue, relating to a jetty at Palmerston. It is enough for the curious in such matters to know that I fully sympathise with the contents of that letter; and they may be assured that the writer of that letter (I am proud to state) needs no in- structions or promptings on a subject wliich so deeply concerns the mer- cantile community as a suitable landing place or jetty. The writer ofthat letter is the only one now here who first settled in business, and has been mixed up with the mercan- tile interests of the Territory more than any other man, giving him a right to put such matters strongly before the authorities, for which I congratulate him. It may be in the recollection of some residents that when here last June instructions were given by me to have the whole of what is called the "Camp" surveyed and mapped out in blocks, intending to remove the whole or nearly the w...

Trip of the Flying Cloud to Port Essington. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 20 February 1874

Trip of the Flying Cloud to Fort Essington. Towards the close of last month (January) considerable anxiety began to be felt in Palmerston by the friends of Mr. Sinclair, who nearly a month previously had left Port Darwin with two companions in an open boat, bound for Port Essington, where they ] intended to examine the country, and I also to ascertain what prospects there j were of establishing fisheries or other ; industries along the coast. The i names of the men who accompanied Mr. Sinclair were Robertson and 1 Miller, and they took enough provi- sions to last about three weeks, by the end of which time they expected to f be back in Port Darwin. They started ' at the beginning of January, and as % they did not return by the end of the month, people began to fear that some accident had happened to the boat, or that the voyagers had come to grief in some way amongst the Malays or the ; aborigines. A deputation accordingly waited on Mr. Scott, the Government Resident, and suggested ...

Water Supply. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

Water Supply. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It is now fresh in the memory of most of the inhabitants of Palmer- ston what a godsend the well behind the O. T. buildings proved last summer when our stock of water was at such a low ebb. And even now it is the nearest water for a, good many for household purposes.s 13ut little they know what they are drinking. In fact it is a second Pool of Siloam for the halt and the lame. 1 cannot include the blind from my own observatious, but will sub- stitute those who wash dirty, stinking clothes. It seems to be the rendez- vous of men who are suffering from loathsome diseases to cleanse them- selves ; also men who are suffering from filthy feet, who as long as they gratify their own wants are callous to the wants of others, and to them it seems of no importance if they pol- lute the water which is a great con- sideration to others. I thought it high time some one took the initiative, hence my intrud- ing on vour valuable columns. PALMERSTON I AN.

LAW COURTS. WARDEN'S COURT—PALMERSTON. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20. (Before Mr. Connor, Chief Warden.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

LAW COURTS. WARDEN'S COURT-PALMERSTON. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20. (Tlcfore Mr. Connor, Chief Warden.) The Warden called on four or five cases involving questions of title, and said that he would adjourn all those cases until Tuesday three weeks. The present Act of Parliament would lapse on Saturday next, and the new Act would probably be here about that time. He did not know whether those cases would still be under his jurisdiction as Goldfields' Warden. But in the event of their not being so he would publish a notice in the Gazette, informing* the public that they had ceased to be under his juris- diction. The cases were then called on and adjourned as follows :-Peters v. Sebbes, Nelson v. Ford, Lawrie v. Wescott and Bagot, and Rohan v. tv Ford. CLAIMS FOR WAGES. Sholl v. Lewis.-Mr. Smith ap- peared for the defendant, and asked for an adjournment until the 1st of March, as defendant and Captain Phillips, an important witness, were both detained up the country.

Jumping:. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Having read in the report of the indignation meeting in Port Darwin in your paper ,of the 20th January, a tele- gram from the Attorney-General, in which he 'states that monster meetings represent jumpers, who are not recog- nised by the law, I should be glad if you could inform me whether I, who am a jumper-and consequently not recognised by the law-am an outlaw, and in danger of being shot by the mounted police 1 I have more than once jumped claims in Victoria without being put out of the pale of the law, and the knowledge that I am in no danger of being shot as an out- law will take a great weight off my mind, as I am suffering from a sore toe, and am consequently unable to run if chased by the mounted police.

LAW COURTS. MAGISTRATES COURT, PALMERSTON. (Before Dr. Ellison, S.M. and Mr. M. L. Connor, ,T.P.) The adjourned case against Alex. Erskine for appropriating to his OAVII use money belonging to llobert Pat- rick and others \\ ho were associated with him in a mining venture, was called on. Mr. Smith appeared for the prose- cution. Erskine now called two AA-itnesses -J. Jones and C. Butcher-to show that Patrick in his evidence had made false statements, and that defendant had not appropriated money as sworn to by the prosecution. It appeared from'Butcher's evidence that Erskine and himself were instructed by Pat- rick and his tAA'o other mates to proceed to Palmerston and transact business belonging to their proposed Company, as well as to purchase goods for the use of the party. They accord- ingly, after receiving money jointly contributed, went to Palmerston, and Avere there detained a consideiable time, purchasing and regulating on behalf of the Company.

It may be natural for him to growl ; old age is peevish, and we willingly submit to his whims and caprice ; but when he ex- ceeds the bounds of social propriety by terming us dishonest workmen and perjured villains, or insinuates as much, and wishes these remarks to be published here, and circulated in Adelaide for the information of the Directors and shareholders of the Company he represents, we consider it necessary to make a few observa- tions in our own defence.

The Public Lands. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Men are leaving the Territory in large numbers, discouraged by want of success. Such is always the case on all gold-fields; but in that of the Northern Territory unusual and altogether exceptional difficulties meet the digger-no fresh beef, no vegetables. The former may soon be supplied, but the latter ? Why J, ask, no vegetables ? Men are now here anxious to take up land to farm, and they say they can't get it. Is this really so ? The Act is liberal, and allows any one to select after survey, and pay 6d. per acre for ten years, during which time he can purchase the freehold for 7s. 6d. per acre, and no one can prevent him doing so. But then is there suitable land surveyed r 1 am told there is none suitable for farming near town open for selection. What is our Survey stafT doing that they allow men to leave the Territory because they can't get land to farm. I am, Sir, &c., ONE WHO BELIEVES IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY.
