TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 January 1884

To THE EDITOR. DEAR SIR,-I cannot, conscientiously refrain from raking up old sores, and I consider, as a citizen, that I have as much right as anyone to condemn the actions of roving cattle in the township at nighttime. A person could put up with the nuisance if the cattle could be confined to a portion of the township where there is no traffic, but certainly Adeock's comer is no such place, and this is just where the cattle congregate. Dairy-yard smells may be very healthy and pleasant to accustomed nostrils, but everything has its proper place, and a man's position becomes decidedly un- pleasant and ludicrous when he enters a room where a private party is l»eing held and finds that his arrival is the signal for a free display of highly-scented pockethankcrchiefs. I have no desire to clean the streets of Palmerston at a cost of my private friends, hence this note.-Yours, ic. Oxr-Y ME. [Your words are feelingly uttered ; luit you never mentioned the matter till the niggers had adop...

GENERAL MISCELLANY. RACE BETWEEN TRICKETT AND BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 January 1884

GENERAL MISCELLANY. RACE BETWEEN TRICKETT AND BEACH. I Tho final heat for the prize of £150 J offered hy Mr. J. Hunt, of the Oxford Hotel, Sydney, and the right to be chosen as thc next best man to Laycock in the proposed match' with Hanlan, took place on December 8th, over the champion course, Parramatta River. No less than 10,000 persons witnessed thc race, which was expected to be a hard fought one. After a little delay, the starting flag dropped and the race com- menced. Trickett, who had the inside j position, was first to obtain an advant- age, and was half a length ahead at 300 yards from thc starting place, but as soon as Beach got fairly away he put on a magnificent spurt, and shot past his opponent, heading him by fully a length at Uhr's Point, which was passed in 2min. 14sec. On the way to Mile Point Trickett was rowing 31 strokes and Beach 36 strokes per minute ; the for-, mer rowing in an easy, maehine-like manner, and the latter rowing with a powerful, vigorous stroke,...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 January 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. ?-* (FROM ÓüE OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE Christinas and New Year's holidays have passed off in the mining districts in the usual humdrum way that such festive seasons obtain in the Northern Territory.- Nothing of particular im- portance occurred this year to mark the event. Sports were held at Port Dawin Camp, the Twelve-Mile, and Adelaide River, all of which passed off well ; and now all hands have settled down to the proverbial grindstone for another twelvemonth. Several crushings have taken place during the past two weeks, but of such a trivial nature as to bc scarce worth recording. I am informed on good authority that the Union Battery is now quite ready to accommodate the claim holders who havé stone at hand, but. now another difficulty appears on the board, viz., no cartage obtainable. However, thwdifn -culty will soon be obviated, as on the eigth December two teams passed the Twelve-Mile for the Union, which 1 understand are to cart quartz in co...

ON THE OVERLAND ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 11 January 1884

ON THE OVERLAND ROUTE. PERHAPS some of your readers who are interested in the Northern Terri- tory would be glad to know a little about the difficulties and dangers of the present route from Queensland to Port Darwin. I am the pioneer of the present route, and this trip, when finished, will be my third, and, I trust, my last. The present season is the driest I ever knew. Creeks and lagoons are quite dry that I always thought were permanent and ever- lasting. There are at present three or four stages of 35 miles without water, which would be nothing, pro- viding you could get grass; but for 200 miles there is no grass, and very little water. There are some nice pieces of cattle country between   Queensland and Port Darwin, and it seems a pity to see it unstocked. The land laws of the Northern Terr- tory are too lenient to squatters, and it deters the progress of the country   through land jobbers merely paying rent on country and trying to sell. I know of ma...

Eyland, lias been further adjourned for a week, thc evidence required not being forthcoming this morning. . ~ DB. MORICE desires us to contradict thc assertion made in last issue to the effect that he had stated that thc disease from which the Chinese were suffering was not leprosy. THE District Council, it appears, intend taking the necessary precautions to have all unemployed blacks removed from the township after dark. This is all very well, but where docs the limit to the employed ones come in. A person can very easily overcome all difficulties if he is desirous of keeping blacks about his establishment at night-time, by finding them trivial jobs of any description, and we would suggest that all niggers (without exception) bc com- pelled to go to their proper camp at dark. SPLENDID rains have been falling in and around Palmerston during the week. Last night the downpour wis especial...
