To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 January 1884

. To IHR EDITOR. SIR,-Really, Mr. Editor, I think that the people in this part of the N.T. are the most uncharitable lot. What do you think they are saying now? Why that young Mr. David "Lindsay, the great Australian explorer (viOK southern papers) is a humbug. Now, this is really too bad, and I, as a well wisher of that enterprising young spirit, must protest against such ungenerous expressions. Look at what he went through in the interests of Australia, scion«;, his squatting friends, and man- kind generally, in his late hazardous; exploring expedition in Arnheim's Land, where not more than four or five parties of white men had previously " trod the desert path." Let those who wish to bring his noble efforts to open up new country into ridicule picture to them- selves the following scene. We will suppose he has just managed to get down off an extensive tableland, where he has lieen almost " bushed " for some days. He looks with the veteran com- mander's stern expression on the hol...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 January 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TIIE affairs of last week have not. lieen cliaracterised by anything particularly novel or interesting. Up to Sunday last the weather was very fine, and travelling was made easy by the fast drying roads ; but thc last 24 hours have been one succession of heavy show- ers, and the roads are again very heavy, so much so that our enterprising mail contractor, Mr. C. Haimos, has only run a buck-board buggy lietween Port Dar- win Camp and the Twelve-Mile. The news from the new rush continues anything bit encouraging to Europeans, and several have been out during the week and just returned very much dis- satisfied with the prospects. Two days since a couple of respectable strong looking young men, new arrivals in the country, passed here on their way down country, after having walked through rain and water from Southport to the Union and back, carrying their swags, without being able to obtain employ- ment of any sort. They sta...

To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 January 1884

To TUE EDITOR. SIR,-In your contemporary's retro- spect of the principal events of 1883, I see he cannot rest satisfied to let the old year die without striking another cowardly blow at the upcountry Progress Association. Ile says -" Upcountry Progress Association apparently de- funct." Now, sir, this is altogether un- called for, not to mention its being utterly false The association's atfairs are in as healthy a condition as could be desired-plenty of members, plenty of funds; and thc association is well satis lied with the results which have so far attended its efforts to advance the in'er ests of the upcountry community. The I majority of the concessions asked of the Government have been granted, and the Association are quite satisfied to await the issue of the important changes which will take place within the next sit months in the administration of Wör- tern Territory affairs, before again bringing their wants before the Govern- ment.-Yours, &c:, A MEMBER.

To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 January 1884

To THE EOITOTÎ. SIR,-lu connection with thc intended railway From Palmerston to Pine Creek, would.you oblige by permitting mc to oc- cupy some of your valuable' space >by giving an opinion as io - thc .-.?propriety..-.of constructing at present thc Southport. Palmerston portion of it. In my opinion i (and I express it so as to have the views of 1 those better acquainted with thc subject j than I am) thc money required to pay interest on thc capital to A; expended in constructing the Southport*o Palmerston portion of thc linc, would enable thc Government to provide a sicamor capable of meeting all traffic requirements for a few years to come. Eventually, of course, it will bc necessary to have the linc, but that will, in.my opinion, only bc when the linc from Pine Creole to Adelaide is well under weigh. I have gone into figures on thc subject, and I think that from a pe- cuniary point of view there can be no doubt as to thc advisability of starting thc line from Southport upcountr...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 25 January 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OAVN CORRESPONDENT.) THE news which I have to send you this week of thc state of affairs at what is now most generally known as the " new rush " is somewhat conflicting, but I think I may bc permitted to style it en- couraging. I regret that the distance prevents my visiting tim field, but I use my best endeavours to obtain all thc in- formation I can from those only who are passing herc to and fro. This is the sub- stance of latest information received on tlic 20th.-Mr. Haye, the officer in charge of Police Department at thc Twelve-Mile, reports that there arc about 500 Chinóse on the ground and 17 Europeans, the latter all making tucker and more. J Webb was in at the Twelve-Mile on the 20th from thc new rush and brought with him a small parcel of really good gold. Another correspondent tells mc that all the Europeans there intend stay- ing till after the wet season, so they must bo making more than tucker. On the other hand, two parties d...
