CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 22 November 1878
CHAPTER H.

The reason was love — all-powerful, all^conquering love? — love for young Sir Herbert Grrahani, ' to whom her father was indepted for his present appointment ; and. to whom she had two years before been indepted for her life, when he rescued her from a stray herd of wild Chillingham cattle, which she had incautiously approached too nearly when on a visit to a maiden aunt. The acquaintance thus commenced soon grew into friendship j and friend ship, as is nine times out of ten case, when it begins with admiration on the one part and gratitude on the other, very shortly ripened into love. Their affection was truthful honest, and sincere on both sides ; and though several circumstances connected with his present pecuniary prospects a...

Parliamentary. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 22 November 1878
Parliamentary. The Upper House seems to have set its face against any more railways save and excepting alone the Nairne line. Thft TMvfcli and Ancle Grove Railwav Bill was lost by a majority of one on Tuesday as the Tea-tree Gully and Jessie Bills had been before. The Bill for the reimposition of Customs duties in the Northern Territory was thrown out by a majority of seven. The Rifle Companies Bill is now certain to pass but the results to accrue from it are more than doubtful Tuesday's pro ceedings in the.

The Northern Territory. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 22 November 1878
The Northern Territory. While It is of grea*. extent and con siderable value if properly used yet the Northern Territory is perhaps the greatest white elephant we possess. At the time ?when the control of the Terri tory was handed pvec to this colony there were bright anticipations of future wealth, and great result to the more Southern portion of the Province but the whole history of the settlement has been one of failure anl blundering. Not only nave the hopes of the past been blighted but serious damage has been done to tins part ot the continent by the mismanagement of the settlement as a -whole, and even nore by the reck less squandering of cash that took place there at the time of the Gold Mining mania. At the present time the finances of the Territory are in a very unsatis factory state it having a considerable bonded debt, and almost no income, and it is therefore not straage that on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week some time was spent in discussing its afikirs in Parliame...
