OPEN COLUMN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884
OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to the Editor must he conched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case the writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] To THE EDITOB. SIB,-I have been working up country some time, aucl I believe (though I have seen nothing of it) there is such a thing as a Progress Association here, and from enquiries made, and from my knowledge of some of the members who I represented to me as belonging to it, I would have thought that progression in action as well as in name would have been its motto. It certainly is not so at present, and why they are laying on their oars now when they could do an incalculable amount of good, both for themselves and the community, is a mystery to me. In your able leader of last week you have, I think, hit on a subject which each of the colonies have had in turn to legislate upon-the Chinese question-and they have in- variably arrived at the conclusion that ...
NORTHERN TERRITORY LAND COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884
NORTHERN" TERRITORY LAND L COMPANY. IN the OBSERVER of the 19th January the half-yearly meeting of the above ' company is reported, a portion of which we extract as follows : " Thc Chairman, in moving that the report be received, stated that the Bank .held deeds for 67,8-10 acres of land, and that the Company held credit selections comprising 1,192 acres, and also 4,000 acres about which they had not received full information, but he believed the survey had been completed at Bynoe Harbour. The Government had been paid £25,000 on account of land held by the Company, a considerable area of which was within twenty miles of the proposed railway from Palmerston. The 16s. per share which had been called up represented £2000, and they could call up £5,000 at any time. Tho unpaid calls amounted to £375 at present, but this amount would soon bo received. The Bank overdraft was £8,375, and when the shares were fully paid up they would be able to reduce this amount to £3000 ; so that with the ...
GENERAL MISCELLANY. A SHOCKING MISHAP. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884
GENERAL MISCELLANY. A SIIOCKIXÍ; MISHAP. A terrible accident occurred in Mait- land N.S.W., about 12 p.m. on 22nd. January. Nearly a whole family of the name of Marshall was burned to death, j It appears that Mrs. Marshall went into ' a bedroom to give her children (whose ages range from 6 to 10 years) a drink, when the bed cumins caught fire, and before anything could be done to save them the mother and two girls and a boy where literally roasted. Indeed, the un-, .fortunate mother was completely baked about the breast and other parts of the body, while the feet of one of the boys were almost burnt off, and the nose of one of the little girls has completely gone. The sufferers .were taken to the hospital, where they linger in frightful agony. No hopes are entertained of the recovery of any of them. The fire en- gines were out and by means of water .. from a well in the vicinity the brigade managed to save the house, although the furniture and the other effects were con- siderably d...

EXTRAORDINARY LAW CASE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884
EXTRAORDINARY LAW CASE. ON Thursday morning last at the I Local Couit, before J. G. Knight, Esq., S.M., a truly exceptional case came on for hearing, and is, we believe^ the first case of its sort that has ever come before an Australian Bench. 'The -plaintiff in the case was a Northern Territory aboriginal girl rejoicing under the civilised cog- nomen of Mary Ann, and the defend- ant was her brother, named Charley. The charge brought against the de- fendant was for assault, and thc particulars run something after this fashion. It appears that Mary Ann and several of her sisters, cousins, &c, have become attached to certain Malays in Palmerston, by whom they are fed, clothed, and housed, and looked upon as wives. As a compensation, tho malo relatives of these girls receive gifts of flour, tea, sugar, &c, from thc Malays, and if these are not forthcoming at rthe proper time the blacks take' thu women away. Charley had been trying for some time to coax his j sister .awa...
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 12. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FttOM OÜB OWX OOIIRESPOÏÏDEÏÎT.) . February 12. ; THE "Warden (Mr, C. W. J ash) re- turned from a visit to the the Bridge Creek alluvial diggings, where he has been', to adjudicate upon a jumping case. He could not give much information of a reliable nature about the prospects of the late pigmy rush to Cement Gully, as he says the diggers are very reticent as to what they are obtaining. One of the lately arrived diggers died at Port Darwin Camp on Wednesday last.' His name was John Curliza. He was 40 years of age, a native of Austria, and, although he pleaded poverty, it was found that he had over £30 in his swag. He was attended to by Dr. Wood, who held a POST MORTEM examination which proved that he died of lung desease. A decided improvement is noticable this season in the Quartz mining returns. I am informed that another parcel of quartz . from the No. 1 South Union of 2li [tons, gave 142 ounces of gold, ancLa small trial crushing of Mr. M'Cracke...
