Hume's Relics of Leichardt. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 3 April 1874

Hume's Relics of Leichardt. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-While tully concurring in your remarks respecting Hume in your issue of the 27th ultimo, viz., that no one who has had conversation with Hume place any reliance on statements, yet the important object for which he was temporarily libe- rated from gaol, was one of such interest to all who have ever heard of the much-lamented Leichardt, but especially so to Australians, that it can only be admitted that the action of the Sydney Government was praiseworthy to a degree, inasmuch as they endeavored to follow up the faintes clue that might lead to the so long-desired result of solving the mystery that enshrouds the fate of Leichardt; and although the action of that Government maybe compared to the " drowning man catching at a straw," yet it has not been produc- tive of evil, but has at least added another to the many endeavours launched for the same humane ob- ject. And whilst almost every one professes to disbelieve the statements of Hume, y...

Death of an Australian Explorer. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 3 April 1874

Death of an Australian Explorer. Paul Edmund de Strzelecki, better known as Count de Strzelecki, died on 6th October at his residence in Savile Row. Count de Strzelecki came from an old Polish family, but owing to political circumstances, sought an asylum in this country. Early in life he was a great traveller, and on his way from China he happened to land at Sydney. There he met Sir George Gipps, the then Governor, and at his suggestion explored a great portion of Australia, districts which were then unknown to travellers, and it is well known to many of his friends that in his explorations he discovered speci- mens of gold. On his arrival in England after his travels in New South Wales, he received a welcome from the Colonial Secretary, and many who had heard of his eminent scientific knowledge, and of his extensive travel, became his warmest friends. His genial and amiable manner made him a great favorite in society. He was selected as one of the commissioner* for the distributio...

Quartz Crushing. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 3 April 1874

Quartz Crushing;. TO THE KIHTOß. Sir-On reading your article of the 13th nit. I saw that it contained state- ments which, if unexplained, would bo liable to damage the reputation of one who is in my opinion one of the most experienced managers in the Northern Territory. The person J refer to is Mr. Sebbcs, manager Winn's Company, Yam Creek. Tn your paper you state that the machinery works by fits and starts, like an ague patient; but this is in- correct. The machinery works very smoothly and regularly, and though it is old, will answer the purpose of testing the claims. At the firsttesting of Winn's machinery, it is true that it worked somewhat irregularly, but this was caused from the shortness of the supply of fuel and the difficulties in carting, which caused the machine to be sometimes stopped. You also question the efficacy of the appliances used for saving gold, and a few words in reference to this may not, perhaps, be amiss, though 1 think that such things should be left to t...

The Case of Jones v. Reynolds. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 3 April 1874

The Case of Jones v. Reynolds. Both the Hon. T. Reynolds and Mr. S. E. Reynolds have written us long letters in reference to our report of the case Jones v. Reynolds. But that report was a very full and careful one, and as it would be easy to com- pare its contents with the actual records of the Court, we are quite satisfied to let it stand on its merits. However, in order to show the sin- gular nature of the objections raised, we append the following postcript from the Hon. Mr. Reynolds s letter : " How is it that your reporter does not give the following facts:-The defendant's counsel said, during Mr. Barclay's evidence (a supposed party to this prosecution), * Ali, I thought so; I knew we should get at the truth ;' and, again, immediately after Mr. Melville's evidence, ' Quite so ; I knew we should get the truth.' When immediately after Dr. Kaufmann said, 1 That is my case.' Mr. Smith then rose, with an evident feeling of con- tempt for 'his case,' and said, 'I shall call no witn...

Trans-Continental Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 3 April 1874

Trans-Continental Railway. Victorians are biting eagerly at the great Trans-Continental Railway bait cr/Fered by the South Australian .^rovernment. The proposal most favored is one by a Mr. Chapman, on behalf of a committee of influential gentlemen, who, for a consideration in land, offer to make a JJ feet G inch railway from Adelaide to Port Darwin, to run at least two trains per week at a maximum speed of twenty miles per hour, save upon the arrival or departure of the mail, when it would be increased to thirty miles per hour, the line to be completed in twelve anda half 3-ears. The most notice- able feature of this scheme is that the promoters undertake to introduce :20,000 immigrants, or 100,000 if de- sired; and it is this portion of the proposal that appears to give it a special charm to the South Australians. Mr. J. M. Bain, of Ballarat; Mr. J. W. Robertson, of Melbourne; Mr. Lorimer, of Melbourne, and Messrs. Brogden and Sons, of London, also make proposals upon a similar ba...

Cure for All. TTOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT Bad Legs, Bad Breasts, Wounds, and Ulcérations, of all kinds. There is no medicinal preparation which may be so thoroughly relied upon in the treatment of the above ailments as Hollo way's Ointment.

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own CorrcsiumdcHt). Adelaide, February 6. The question of Aust ralianexplora tion is a fascinating one, and although there is comparatively a small part of the Continent which has been un- trodden by the explorer's foot, there are still a few portions which have hitherto remained a terra incognita, notwithstanding many gallant at- tempts to reveal the mysteries they contain. The portion of the Austra- lian continent which has hitherto re- sisted all attempts to penetrate it is that lying west of the Transconti- nental Telegraph. At least three ex- ploring parties are now or have been engaged in traversing this unknown region. Mr. W. C. Gosse left Alice Springs in April last in command of a Government exploration party, with the intention to reach Perth, out he has been beaten back unsuccessful. He went about 600 miles west on S.W , a»d reached lat. z6° 32', long. 126 o 29'within 180 miles of Forrests 1869 back. He found some splendid country, but the g...
