Loss of the Boat Bengal. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

Loss of the Boat Bengal. TO THE EWTOK. Sir-As James Miller, one of the crew of the Bengal, states in your last issue that the said boat dragged her anchor oil" Vashon Heads, and drifted on shore in a breeze of wind, and as I left here in charge of the boat, I should like to give the public a fair and true statement of the accident. Before we left Port Darwin Robertson and Miller, in the presence of Mr. Caldwell, appointed me to act as master of the Bengal, they agreeing to obey my orders, and also to assist^me in every possible way I might require ; but 1 am sorry to state that Miller would do nothing but attempt to steer the boat, and would not recognise me as master after being about three days out. The morning of the accident, when on the port tack, the boat struck a reef, but got oil" (Miller steering) ; and Miller ran back to Vashon Heads, and let go the anchor in about twelve feet of water, when he immediately jumped over- board, and swam ashore with his clothes and boots on, ...

Nouthern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, FEB. 27, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

Jtqifap Sferrtorrç ©ima. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, FEB. 27, 1874. TREPANG FISHING is an industry which might probably be made profit- able on many portions of our -coast if it were conducted in the economical ~way which the Malays have adopted lliey are able to make it pay because their expenses are very small. They live chiefly on rice and fish ; they are content with small returns for their labour ; and their vessels and general equipment are of the least costly description that can be obtained. It follows, therefore, that if Europeans are going* into trepang* fishing- they must be prepared to compete with the Malays, and the question is, whether they would be able to do this, with much chance of success. Still, if suitable boats were fitted out for the purpose, and if the proprietors could secure the regular service of aborigines, there is no reason why settlers in North Australia should not secure some share in this profitable business. In fact, we understand that a mercantile firm in...

Desperate Deeds of Composition. (From Judy.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

Desperate Deeds of Composition. [From Judy.) I should like it to be distinctly understood, before going any further into this matter, that my name is Algernon Percival Higgins. Pre- sently, perhaps, you may get a little confused ; it is, therefore, as well to start fair. That's my name, and I am perfectly satisfied with it, if I may be allowed to enjoy it intact. I live at Slocum Podger, and have done a great deal for the place. Among other things, I have been chiefly instrumental in starting the local journal. The local journal does not abso- lutely pay expenses at the present moment, and we have to economise as much as possible. The editor sets up his own articles, and the sub takes down the shutters, and takes the copies round to the subscribers, also sweeping out the shop when not otherwise occupied. Persons in the town wishing to say anything about their goods, send what they would like put in in their own words, and we have also an occasional reporter for gigantic gooseberries...

The Port Essington Expedition. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 27 February 1874

The Port Essington Expedition. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Will you permit me through your valuable columns to give the public a truthful version, or what I, at least, think a correct statement, concerning the report which is now going the rounds of Palmerston. I asked Mr. Clarke if he would call a meeting of a few public men, and hear the separate statements of the three parties forming the Port Essington boating party ; he said that it was purely a private affair, and he did not wish to interfere in it. I then asked Mr. Reynolds, jun , to enquire into those statements ; he said that he had heard the state- ments on the other side, and as there were always two sides to every story, it would be but fair to give me a hear- ing ; but he could not move in the mat- ter, as he was a partner of Sinclair's. I have now availed myself of the use of the press for my statement to reach the public. A paragraph in your last issue states that there was a misunder- standing between me and the other two fro...
