Cure for AU. 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. Nothing can be more simple and safe than the manner in which it is applied, nothing more salutary than its action on the body, both locally and con- stitutionally. The ointment rubbed around the part affected enters tho pores as salt permeates meat. It quickly penetrates to the source of the evil, and* drives it from the system. Bronchitis, Diphtheria, Golds, Coughs, Sore Throats, & Short' ness of Breath.

Up-Country Mails. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 10 April 1874

Up-Countiy Mails. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I have on several occasions seen the subject of mail communication between Palmerston and Yam Creek referred to in your columns : its im- portance must be my apology for again directing public attention to it. Every one in the Northern Territory is painfully aware of the great incon- venience arising from the irregular mail communication between Port Darwin and Adelaide. People in Palmerston and Southport, however, are fortunate enough to be able to answer their correspondence by the return of each steamer, where.« those of us up country arc deprived of even that advantage, ana I must say unnecessarily deprived of it. We have a steamer from Adelaide on an average about every second month ; she remains in Port Darwin eight or nine days before sailing, thus giving plenty time to allow of letters being sent at least as far as Yam Creek, and answers being sent «¡Jown to go by the same steamer. It would simply be a matter of arranging for a special ma...

The Future of the Northern Territory. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 10 April 1874

The Future of the Northern Territory. TO TUE EDITOR Sir-I had a dream which was not all a dream. The ocean was alive with many-masted vessels. Tall ships went in and out the har- bor oí Port Darwin. And the flag that brived a thousand years the battle and the breeze flaunted every- where, mixed up willi the stars and stripes of America, the eagle of Russia, the dragon of China, the yellow horse of JVorway, and the reel, white, and blue of all the countries in the world. The tall lofty rocks ol Fort Hill were extinguished. A broad level terrace stretched across to the majestic slopes of Stokes Hill ; and huge docks, in which floated that giant of the seas the Great Eastern, reflected their tranquil waters on the busy shores ; whilst the rush of a mighty locomotive, the scream of an engine, and the stentorian voice of a railway guard, shouting "Ade lakle,""MacI>onncllIianges,',<<New castle Waters,'5 Sec, &c, burst upon the ear, and filled the astonishe...

The Wreck of the Emily. Rockhampton, February 13. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 10 April 1874

The Wreck of the Emily. Rockhampton, February 13. Captain Hill and a boat's crew be- longing* to the schooner Emily, from Port Darwin to Adelaide, with surplus telegraph poles and stores, was picked up by the steamer Tinonee. The captain reports that the vessel left the Roper River 23rd December, touched at Somerset and Townsville for pro- visions on 23rd January, sailed again on the 28th, and encountered strong south-east gules, which lasted until Saturday last. The captain endea- vored to make Bowen, but was driven leeward. The ship was leaking-, and the sails had been partly carried away. One anchor was let" go and was dragged. A second was then dropped. A ver3r anxious night was passed. A strong- wind blowing-, with a heavy sea. The schooner was in imminent dang-er of «roing- ashore. On Sunday morning- believing- it impossible to save the vessel, the captain consulted with his passengers and crew, and it was unaimously decided to abandon her. Two boats were lowered, and only pro...

End of the Tichborne Claimant's Trial. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 10 April 1874

End of the Tichborne Claimant's Trial. The three counts of the indictment were -that he swore falsely when he declared on oath, first that he was Roger Tich- borne ; secondly, that he seduced his cousin ; and, thirdly, that he was not Arthur Orton. Upon the whole of these points he has been found guilty, and the jury, by bringing in the verdict they   have, announce that the evidence ad- duced during the trial has proved to them that the Claimant was the audacious liar, perjurer, and forger that he was described by the Attorney-General as being-that in fact, while professing to be the descen- dant of an ancient and titled family, he was none other than Arthur Orton, the son of a Wapping butcher. The Judges have shown their coincidence in the verdict by inflicting the extreme sentence of fourteen years imprisonment, which, although a severe punishment, will not be deemed any too heavy for the atro- cious offence the prisoner has committed. Thus ends one of the most extra...

LAW COURTS. LOCAL COURT—PALMERSTON. Thursday, April 2. (Before E. W. Price, S.M.) LIMITED JURISDICTION. Lathlain v. Brown. — Claim for £3 15s. Mr. Smith for the plaintiff, and Dr. Kaufmann for the defendant. This claim was for a case of brandy which plaintiff supplied to defendant after defendant's wife had asked him to lend it to them. It had never been paid for. Did not lend it to him or to Ross, but sold it. Mr. John G. Kelsey said he gave the bill to defendant, and no objection was then made. The brandy did not belong to the Company. Defendant, on being called, stated that he borrowed the brandy for Mr. Ross, with whom he was living at the time. A day or two afterwards saw Ross lend £5 to plaintiff, and heard him say it was on account of the brandy. Plaintiff never asked de- fendant for payment until Ross had gone away. Mr. Lathlain was recalled, and said that when Ross gave him the £5 he said it could stand against two cases of brandy which he had previously obtained. Nonsuit. ...

A Strange Country. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

A Strange Country. TO THE ETUTOK. There was a country in Lomba dago where every one became drowsy and l?nguid the moment he began to breathe the air of the place. It was such a drowsy place, in fact, that, if a man began to sneak a few ,,-AVords he dropped off to sleep before he had finished what he wanted to say ; and if he sat down to write a letter he was sure to be found shortly afterwards with his head on tile table snoring calmly and beauti- fully. If the king who belonged to this country should send officers there (say a Commission) they would make a great fuss and noise before starting, but immediately on their arrival they would become as listless as the people who were lhere before them. Their arms would hang down by their sides, their leçs would move as though they woiild were going to a funeral, and their voices would quite die away, so that in a short time the people of Lombadago would begin to wonder what had become of the Commission, and would fancy that such a thing ...

Mr. Melville on the Northern Territory. When Mr. Melville returned to the other colonies a short tune ago, after his resignation of the goldfield's Avavtlcnship, lie supplied some infor- mation on the suhject of the Northern Territory to the Melbourne Argus. We extract the following : " Mr. Melville is positive that no alluvial grouud has yet been found in the district. Statements that such ground has been discovered there have been made, but that has been found by gully-rakers, and never at a depth of more than four feet. But he tully expects that good alluvial ground will yet be discovered in the Howley district. "Keefs have been discovered in the three districts named Howley, Yam Crock, and Pine Creek. The first is about 70 miles from Southport, the second 90 miles, and the third 120 miles, it is generally expected that ti)« Howley will prove the richest feld; at present, it has the largest population.

On Saturday evening, November 29, during an exhibition match between Cook and Bennett, at Cook's Rooms, 99, Regent-street, Cook made the as- tonishing* break of nine hundred and thirty-six. Bennett was in fine form, having beaten Cook both at billiards and pyramids in the afternoon, and in the evening got away first with a strong lead of a quarter of the game, scoring a magnificent break of 184 (including 87 spots), and adding small contributions of 44, 48, and 68 (21 spots), while Cook's only break was a trifle of 79. The score then stood Bennett, 386 ; Cook, 148. Cook then made 63 by all round play, when he got the spot and put together 270 consecutive spots. The 263rd spot made him game, but by request he continued his break.
