Visit of Mr. Streeter to the Mining Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 22 November 1889
Visit of Mr. Streeter to the Mining Districts. With the the Hon. J. L. Parsons, Government Resident, as companion and guide, Mr. G. S. Streeter last week paid a flying visit to some of our leading mines in the Pine Creek and Union districts. Starting of course at Mr. Jensen's famous block, they were shown all over the different workings, and were made acquainted with everything that would be likely to interest the dis- tinguished stranger. From there they passed on to thc adjoining claim, owned by Mr. M. Mullan, which is reckoned to be little, if at all, inferior to the first named property. At each of these mines they saw rich stone being raised. The Ah Ching claim was then inspected, but owing to the time at their disposal being only limited they skipped the Prospecting & Mining Co's, claim. The party next went to tho Union, and of course began their rounds there with the No. 10 South Union, where Mr. Godfrey Mellor, thc manager, gave them every opportunity of seeing what ...

HOWLEY. November 25th. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
HOWLEY. November 25t.li. Bischoff, Goslin, and Dahlky have just had a cleaning up at tho Howley : battery for a result of Ul ounces of ; smelted gold from 51 tons of stone ; 1 this is not epiite up to what was ex- Í pectcd ; they reckoned on it going over ; 3 ounces to the ton. But taking every- j thing into consideration the result must be considered good, and speaks well for ¡ their claim. It gives them between £6 j and ¿£7 per week per man for the time ! spent in raising thc stone, clear of cart- i ing and crushing expenses. j One of the Chinamen working at the ' battery gave Goslin and the men in ! charge an idea of what he was capable of j doing over the cleaning up. Goslin tells , it as follows :-After cleaning ont the boxes and putting everything into tubs, Goslin started sifting and taking off the rough gravel, and the Chow started panning off and putting the silver and amalgam into a bucket beside the tub. Goslin noticed him a few times scratch- ing his knee; as hn was pour...

English & Foreign. Loudon, Nov. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
English & Foreign. Loudon, Nov. 28. Sir Charles Dilke has been inter- viewed on the subject of federation by a representative of one of the leading journals, and the result pub- lished. He condemus the scheme of Imperial Federation as au impracti . cable fad which eau never by any possibility be realised in its eutirety. On the subject of colonial federation he speaks more hopefully, but ex- presses a decided preference for the military scheme proposed by Sir Henry Parkes to his political ono; federation among the colonies was undoubtedly most essential to the proper carrying out of a systematic plau of defences, but at the same time he thought the danger of an attack upon Australia had been absurdly magnified. Still there was wisdom in being prepared for every event, and federation of their re- spective resources would be the most economical and effective means of arriving at that happy condition. Tho Agents-General for tho several colonies have been inter- viewed on the sa...

FLORA BF LL. November 2"». [ There is not much to write about j here. However, they have cut the loch; [? at the 1 oO feet level, going down all j right about 3 feet thick, with good ore j in it ; but it is not intended to do much 1 towards opening out until the shaft is sunk another GO or 70 feet deeper ; they : will start to sink a winzs on the lode ¡ with the idea of proving the value, and ! at the same time will ventilate the mine, j so therefore will answer a double pur- ; pose. At present they are engaged in j sinking thc engine shaft again, but have '. got hard country to contend with ; they j expect word from south by this mail to | start to work breaking ore in the other i shafts, with the view, I suppose, of shipping it away, as they have got no furnace on the works. Still plodding away at the Mount Wells and McKinlay, but cannot do much towards sinking on account of the water being so heavy ; they have got some very nice ore. and very rich, and should give silver mining s...

Local Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
The total earnings of the railway for the week ended Nov. 23rd was £211. A small parcel of gold (82oz) was received by the E. S. & A. C. Bank per " Flinders " mail, being the produce of the Ruby Queen mine, Kimberley. The cleaning up at the Fountain Head on Saturday gave a return of 32oz gold for the month's work. The rainfall for the 24 hours ended 9 a. m. 23rd, was 0-750in. For the 24 hours ended 9 a.in. 26th, 0-160in. For the week ended 9 a.m. 28th the rainfall was 0-920in. We would again remind turfites that entries for the principal events of the Katherine River Turf Club are due by noon of the 5th December. The com- plete programme appears elsewhere. Our telegrams show that the House made very short work of the Northern Territory Estimates, by running them through in twenty minutes, without stopping to argue about any ono of the items. Parliament is evidently in a hurry to get things straightened up a bit before winding up the campaign. Our Katherine River corresponden...
Victoria. Melbourne, Nov. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
Victoria. Melbourne, Nov. 28. Searle, the sculler, is progressing favourably at tho Williamstown sanatorium. The Parliament has been pro- rogued for tho Christmas holidays, and meeta again in January. The closing speech stated the revenue returns indicated increasing pros- perity, and every industry was flourishing. A splendid discovery of coal has been made in South Gippsland ; the seam is 4ffc.

The Premier remains firm in Iiis decision that if Sir Henry Parkes is sincere in Iiis desire for federation he should seek it through the medium of the Federal Council.
The "Smoke" Concert, [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
The " Smoke" Concert, [By Cometa.] I run no great hazard in characterising tile first of the smoke concerts as a great success. And these are my reasons : First, the muster roll numbered about 50, quite large enough for a start. Second, the music was excellent. Third, the singing ditto. Fourth, the company formed a very jolly crowd without exception ; and Fifth, the whole of the indefatigable "chief engineer's" arrangements were sound and provocative of great interest at least, if not of downright enjoyment. A " smoke" concert, to the uninitiated, is suggestive of an atmosphere reeking with the fumes of the soothing weed, but that's a very outside idea. We smoked and talked and listened to the instrumental solos of Mr. Maraun, or the happily selected songs of the best rocalists the city can produce ; or we paid over the pesky " button" when the other party happened to have " fours" against our "full on aces." And we enjoyed our "something soft" in full knowledge of the non-existence...

New South Wales. Sydney, Nov. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 29 November 1889
New South Wales. Sydney, Nov. 28. Dibbs, leader of tho Opposition, attributes the recent action of Sir Henry Parkes re federation, to the fact that Parkes sees in the scare raised by General Edwards a chance to split up the Opposition on the question of tariff. Four rainers havo been killed at the South Burwood colliery ; some of the gear gave way and they fell a great distauco to the bottom of tho shaft. A mutiny on a large scale has occurred in the Bathurst Gaol. It was quelled after a short struggle, I and thirteen of tho ^ringleaders have been variously sentenced. The Chinese, Ah Chong, charged with fatally stabbing a European deck hand on a Murray Uiver steam boat, has been committed to take his trial for manslaughter. It is stated that the French vessels recruiting for labour in the South Seas are bartoring niles and gin for natives. The police have just issued a re- port showing that there are eight hundred escaped French convicts and liberes in New South Wales, sixty in Vict...

^he fforiU ^itsf rattail. and Xart/ient Territory Government Cosette. BRID A Y, NOVEMBER 29, 1889. THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY. Yet another " Daniel " has come to judgment ou this most important question, and the criticism now be- fore us, aud which we republish below, is of an uuusual and, ia some points, unique order. The article is copied from a recent number of the Melbourne ARGUS, and, emanating as it does from such an authoritative source, it demauds strict scrutiny. Wc must confess at the offset that we do not approve of much that is contained therein. As to the neces- sity for the completion of this great undertaking, the AECUS gives a ready answer in the affirmative ; but on what grounds. Simply because it is a "sentiment and an idea!" because it "satisfies an aspiration and a national craving !" Not that the through line can ever become useful, but purely because the puhlic desire to have it to gaze upon and speak of with pleasure and national pride oozing out all over th...
