GENERAL MISCELLANY. FLOGGING LARRIKINS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 February 1884

GENERAL MISCELLANY. FLOGGING LARRIKINS. The following ia abridged from the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL of Jan. 19th : By thc appointed time the triangle had been fitted up in one of the small yards, and straps properly placed to buckle up the culprits. This implement, wliich is made of bar iron, and can bc adjusted to various sizes, has a cross-bar about half way up to keep the culprit's back well out, and over this was thrown a large blanket. The man who wielded the cat was a stout brawny warder from the gaol. At 12 o'clock all was ready, and Dr. Egan having arri ved, operations were at once commenced. Only a few gentlemen who had obtained orders were present, in addition to the officers of the police. The first candidate fo* flogging was Magner aged 23, who was stripped to the waist, and secured to the triangle. He received his 25 lashes in about 4} minutes, each stroke averaging a little over 10 seconds. Mulholland followed and got the sante number. The prisoners bore their punishme...

Telegraphic News. ADELAIDE. February 7. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 February 1884

Telegraphic News. ADELAIDE. February 7. Baker Pasha's army suffered a defeat on Monday at the hands of El Mahdi's forces. The force under General Baker numbered only 3,600. These were fiercely attacKed from all quarters by overwhelming numbers of Arabs commanded by the False Prophet, and it is estimated that over 2000 were killed and wounded. Seven English officers and ten European are missing, and it is sup- posed they are amongst the slain. Generals Baker and Sartorions and Colonel Burnaby narrowly es- caped. Shortly after the fight began the Egyptian soldiers became panic stricken and fled in-all directions, leaving the British and Turks op- posed to the overpowering forces of the rebel. Doctor Moran, Bishop of Ossory, has been appointed Roman Catholic Archbishop of Sydney. An attempt has been made to upset the Nairne train. Early yesterday morning a watchman dis- covered a piece of iron fixed on the line before the fi--st .train started. The steamer Rook has been pur- chased at ...

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 5. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 February 1884

COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 5. THU influx of another latch of alluvial diggers EN BOUTE for Houschildt's rush has .caused a little stir up this way, and many are the surmises as to the fortune they are likely to meet with, everyone, of course, wishing them success. I saw one or two of them on their way up, . and from what I can gather many of them are not over well provided with the means to spend much time in pro- specting, so that should they not l»e fortunate enough to drop on a little gold on their arrival at the field, it means discomfiture and a tramp down country I again. Certainly, there are many quartz claims lying idle, the working of i which would provide them with a living, I but even this requires means, and I fear that the serious opposition our local j European storekeepers are now, and [ have been for some time past, receiving will prevent their giving much credit, and this is brought about in a great measure by the numberl...

RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 February 1884

RACE MEETING. < A meeting for the purpose of forming an upcountry Racing Club was held at Mr. Harry Morris's Grove Hill Restaur- ant on the evening of the 2nd. February. There was a very fair attendance of the sporting public. Mr. C. W. Nash, Iiaving been voted by the meeting to the chair, opened the proceedings by reading the advertisement calling thc meeting, and in a few well chowan remarks, promised lib support, but pointed out tirat as in a short time the establishment of a central mining township would be performed by the Government, it would be as well to dis- cuss the advisability of forming the Club at once or postponing it for a while until such time as the upcountry popul- ation became more centralised. Mr. Kirwin supported the remarks of the Chairman, but did not consider that it was necessary to delay the formation of the Club until such time as the Government had decided where the central mining township was Ho be placed. Mr. M. D. Armstrong considered that ...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 8 February 1884

itke Êûttk JUslralia«^ FBIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 8. " LAND BILL in a dilemma." .Such is the wording of portion of our last week's telegram ; and we are quite prepared to believe it. Older and wiser heads than are contained in the South Australian Parliament have been nonplused before now over the framing of a Bill to suit, as near as possible, all sections of the land dabbling community. Ministries have been upset, the progress of Houses blockaded for weeks together, and Governments sent almost on the very verge of insanity through the same question which is now proving such an insuperable barrier to our own Government. Throughout the whole of Australasia the land query has been debated with a warmth of feeling which clearly shows the im- portance of the question ; and yet, it is nevertheless a fact that every new Parliament that is formed has some fault to find with the Land Bill.as- sented to by its predecessor. Those mostly interested in the Bill confess to being disappointed with...

Custom House for a number of years had one of its ends blown away by a squall carly this week, and thc offices have been shifted into thc new Court House for thc time being. Ovher way down, the s.s.

SNAKES are apparently very plentiful at Southport just now. Last week a tiger snake was killed by one of the workmen at Brown's blacksmith shop, and about the same time a death adder was killed only a few paces from the door of Mr. Marker's «addling establishment.
