The Victoria River Outrage. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 8 November 1889

The Victoria River Outrage. By the return of the cutter Ark on Saturday with Mounted Constables Brooks and Holdaway on board, we were supplied with further particulars of the spearing of Thomas Hardy by blacks at Auvergne Station, on the Victoria River. The chief item of interest is, of course, the death of the unfortunate white man. Hardy was dead and his body buried many days even before the party left here to go to his assistance. The spearing was to all intents and purposes a well-planned scheme of the natives. On the day when the outrage was perpetrated Hardy had gone down to the creek to take up some fishing lines. Having done so he went up to the house again, the back door of which was closed. He passed through the front door and had hardly opened the back one when a number of savages rose from behind the adjacent wood heap and threw a shower of spears at him. One of these penetrated the right breast, making a terrible gash, and before he could secure himself he was struck by...

Up-Country Intelligence. (From our Correspondents). ROPER RIVER. October 28th, 1889. Since the Inst steamer things have been by no means as monotonous as usual. Two Chinese and two Afghans passed herc on the road to the Macarthur.

In company with Mr. J. Farrar, J.R, who was on his road to the Limmen's River on business, the police at once started to investigate the affair ; they were unsuccessful in uncling the body, but thc clothes, ¿c., belonging tcVthc Afghan, were found in a black's camp, the inmates of which, on seeing the police, instantly dispersed in all directions. Thc police were of course anxious to capture some of the niggers to obtain information as to the where- abouts of tho principal murderer, and as they had noticed a number of them take refuge in a thi...

Western Australia : Nov. 13. Governor Broome, with Messrs., Campbell and Parker, the local delegates, is abbot proceeding to Englaud to represent this colony before tbe House of Commons re the question of granting responsible government to the,whole of Western Australia. One of the chief pleas to be urged for the concession, is the obvions;near approach, of the time of a universal desire throughout Australia for federation, and the impossibility of its realisation under the present conditions of Western Australia. Sir William Robinson, the Govornor designate, who is now in England, will assist in the advo- cacy .-vit AS the prevailing opinion here/that now the; JTiS.W.

UNION" v'^órember 13. , No cTOshings to report from here yet, but I hope to. see ;the battery at work again next week.: ? -, . : : : ; We have had some good rains and the dam is again full, but 1 notice that a lot of debris from the railway cuttings and embankments is being washed into it, which I expect will mean future, trouble in the_ shape of litigation. It seems a great pity. the rails over the head of this were not built on trestles, as I note, independent of the damage being done as above, it keeps the repairers busy patching up after every rain. I hear it is Mr. Millar's intention to put down a deep shaft on one of his central claims, to be started immediately, and I hope and think this will do away with an impression a great many seem to have that our reefs do not go down. On No. 1 South Lady Alice the contractor is making good progress with the tunnel. He is now in 135 feet and should cut the reef in another 40ft.

My-country Intelligence. (From our Correspondents) MAUDE CREEK. November 1. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 15 November 1889

en». (From our. Correspondents). MAUDE CREEK. November 1. The only claims, at work just now are 'Dalhouse,' 'Hibernia,' 'Mystery,' anti Mr. H. M. Solomon's. This gentleman has pegged out twenty acres and gone to considerable expense to get a surveyor up to survey it. "He is now raising six tons of stone whioh he is sending down for shipment to Sydney. Mr. Solomon seems quite confident that bis property is a valuable one, and as he has got a reef three feet thick showing gold (although fine) all through it, I don't think he need have any doubts about the ultimate success of his venture if hie can arrange for proper machinery to treat the stone. The machinery here at present is utterly useless for treating stone with such fine gold as is to be found in most instances on Maude Creek. Besides the parcel being sent by Mr Solomon, I believe Kemp and McCarthy are each sending a ton of stone to Ballarat for proper treatment, and the lost named gentleman is sending three or four tons to Fine...
