Officers' Quarters. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Officers' Quarters. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It is quite time that the fuss about Government officers' quarters was put an end to. In Adelaide and other towns people in the Government service are paid what is considered a sufficient salary, and then left to shift for themselves like other folks. Depend upon it, it would be better for all parties if the present miserable huts used by Government officers were pulled down, for then the occupants AVOUKI get nice snug cottages of their own, and would perhaps plant garden round them and other- wise make them cheerful and agreeable to look at. This Avould put a stop to a great deal of grumbling. Let a man be paid a fair salary, and then be left to rent his own cottage, like a Briton. I am, Sir, &c, COMMON SENSE.

Cost of Telegrams. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Cost of Telegrams. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It is outrageous that people here should not be able to exchange short messages with their friends in Adelaide and the other colonies at a moderate cost-say five shillings per mes- sage ol' four or five words. At the present rates very few people care to send a message at all except upon a pressing matter of business Surely this is injurious to the Telograph depart- ment itself, especially as we have no regular means of sending letters to any part of the world. Another injustice to this settlement is that although we are 2000 miles nearer to England than Adelaide people are, we are obliged to pay exactly the same rates as they do for our cable messages. I do hope that this will not last much longer. I am, Sir, &c, PALMEBSTONIAN.

Cultivation in North Australia. THE BANANA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Cultivation in North Australia. THE BANANA. The Banana will become the most popular of all fruits amongst the colonists of tropical Aus- tralia, as it produces a full crop very shortly after being planted, and as the fruit itself is less palling to the appetite than any other tropical fruit. It succeeds best on newly cleared lands, and requires very little care beyond the erection of a fence around the spot where it is planted. This is especially necessary where there is cattle, as they would otherwise soon devour the juicy stems and leaves of the plant. The Banana dies after being cropped, but it is reproduced by the suckers which shoot up from around the root, all of which with the ex- ception of a single plant should be removed and transplanted elsewhere. At the Port Essington settlement the original stock of the banana was obtained from Kissa, one of the Sesworthy islands, and consisted of about twenty suckers, the stems and leaves of which were cutoff about a foot above the roo...

Town Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Town Talk. BY RAMBLER. Mr. Glyde in the last financial statement gives the population of South Australia as 15)5,000 souls. The Overland Telegraph cost £372,000, which would be a nice comfortable debt for us Northern Territory people to discharge some of these days, if we had to pay it when we get obstreperous and cut the painter to drift upon the ocean of political life for ourselvos. Tho li. A. T. Co. have made an offer to the South Australian Government, that they w<U be prepared to reduce their charges ono half if the colonies^rant them a subsidy of £30)000 per annum, provided the Ade- laide Government reduce their charges also. The Treasurer announced that the Govern- ment of South Australia was ready to bear her share of the subsidy if the other colo- nies would join." This looks well, but at the same time we may ask the question who is it that uses the cable ? The reply is obvious. Why, the wealthy merchants and business people of the colonies. Then in that cuso le...

Hospital Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Hospital Fund. The vocal and instrumental concert in aid of the Hospital Fund took place on Thurs- day evening last, at Garson's Esplanade Hotel, and was musical!}' and financially a success, over 200 people being present. The ladies mustering strong, showed by their presence the interest they felt in the suc- cess of the object in view. The room was very tastefully decorated with flags and evergreens, and reflected very considerable credit upon those engaged in that work. Mr. Garson especially descrres mention, not only for the spirited manner in which he placed his house at the disposal of the Com- mittee for this entertainment, but also for the trouble and expense he was put to in fitting up the stage, &c. The performers laboured under the disadvantage of having only one rehearsal, consequently the few slight faults that occurred were attributable to that cause. However, everything went oif smoothly, and credit is due to those who came forward on so short a notice to prom...

The Murder by the Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

The Murder by the Natives. We subjoin a copy of the evidence which was taken by Police-trooper Kappler, at the inquest held on the body of August Henning who was killed by natives at the Howley Creek in October last : William Gunther deposed-Came with A. Henning from Yam Creek, and camped at the Howley Creek the first night ; second night went to the Byrrell Creek and camped about 4 p.m. Soon after our arrival saw one blackfellow, and soon after two more ; they came to the dray. They told us their names, they were Harry, Jimmy, and Billy. They remained until we had tea. We gave them something to eat, then ordered them away. They left ; don't know which way they went. By Police-Do not recollect where we were lying when we went to sleep. Awoke some- time next day, feeling great pain in my head. Found myself under the dray.

New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

New Guinea. As North Australia becomes occupied, it is certain that New Guinea will be visited occasionally by vessels from Port Darwin, and its neighbourhood. We are therefore more interested than other countries in all which takes place in that country-a country almost unknown to Europeans, notwith- standing its good situation, and its large resources. Hitherto, however, it is dread of the natives, which has prevented explora- tion in New Guinea. Statements concern- ing their disposition and conduct have been very unfavourable, though perhaps some- what exaggerated. But now another part of the coast of New Guinea has been visited, and from that part, the south-east coast, the reports are extremely good. The natives were found to be well-disposed, and the country is spoken of in the highest terms. H.M.S. Basilisk is the vessel which has been on this interesting cruise ; and the following report which was received from Cardwell some time ago is the account of her voyage : " H.M.S. B...

Survey of the Roper. [From Mr. Todd's Report] [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

Survey of the Roper. [From Mr. Todd's Report] "Before leaving the Roper I gave Captain Lowrie instructions to take a complete set of soundings in the Roper, from its mouth up to the landing, to buoy and beacon the bar end channel, placing substantial beacons on the north, and, where required, on the south bank, between the bar and the river en- trance ; to mark by beacons, lopped trees, or otherwise, the position of all rocks and shallows in the river ; to plot, on a general plan of the river, the deep water channel, and depth of water at low water springs ; and to keep a record of the rise and fall of tide, a tide board being fixed at the landing. This appeared to me to be the most profit- able way in which I could employ the Young Australian. I have not yet received Captain Lowrie's report, but I understand he has carried out my instructions with much intelligence and zeal. From a tele- gram received from him, dated August last, he says that the upper river had fallen con- siderab...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, NOV. 21, 1873. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 21 November 1873

NORTHERN TERRITORY TIMES. PALMERSTON : FRIDAY, NOV. 21, 1873. SANITARY REFORM is the crying want of Palmerston at the present moment. Nature has done a great deal for the place, but man is trying to undo it as much as possible. The situation of the town in a sanitary point of view is excellent. No place in the world could be more easily kept clean, yet it is already becoming unbearably dirty. Drainage, of course, is not to be thought of at present, though when the time comes there will be the greatest ease in the construction of such works, for the town lies on an elevated plain, with unusual advantages as to sea frontages. But scavenging is the thing which is needed now. The inhabitants at present seem to look upon their streets, both front and back, as places chiefly intended for the reception of dirt and rubbish. Bouilli tins are scattered over all the thoroughfares, and some of them emit smells strong enough to knock a person down. But there are heaps of other things still more ...
