Proposed Annexation of New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

Proposed Annexation of New Guinea. The London Telegraph has a lead- ing at tide strongly advising the im- mediate annexation of New Guinea by the British Government. It is known that when Captain Moresby, of H.M.S. Basilisk, found that he had, at all events for a time, sup- pressed the infamous slave traffic in the Polynesian waters, he proceeded on an exploring trip to New Guinea, where he made some notable geo- graphical discoveries ; but of still greater importance is the cir- cumstance that the aborigines, commonly believed to be the most degraded and blood-thirsty of all savage tribes, proved to be '* the friendliest, quietest, most agreeable aborigines in the world. Officers and men of the Basilisk mixed freely with the natives at various points of the coast, and even when stragglers were lost in the dense scrubs, and found by the natives, they were in every case safely conducted to the native huts, where they were hos- pitably entertained till they rejoined their comrades."

The Maryborough Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

The Maryborough Tragedy. One of the most terrible crimes, or rather series of crimes, it has ever been our sad duty as journalists to record was discovered to have been committed on 6th instant at Bung Bong, near Maryborough. Jj mes Porter, the man whose guilt has thus been disclosed, «.is a shoemaker re- siding there with his three children, a b<n and two girls, aged seven years, four years, and fifteen months, and is said by his neighbors to have been a temperate hardworking man, but since the death of his wife, which occurred about a year ago, it was observed that his mind became some- what affected, though not to such an extent as to justify his seclusion. Among other subjects to which he turned his attention was that of spiritualism, and he was never tired of impiessing his neighbors with the importance of its doctrines ; but whether or not his mind became un- hinged from this cause we are unable to say. From what we have heard, it appears that the crime which he .co...

Death of the Racehorse Don Juan. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

Death of the Racehorse Don Juan A great deal of astonishment was excited among racing men in Mel- bourne on Saturday afternon (says the Argvi) by the rumour that the cele- brated cup winner Don Juan had died suddenly. The event was so unexpected that at first people refused to believe it, but. on enquiry it proved unfortunately to be too true. On Saturday morning the horse was out on the training ground at St. Alban'*, near Geelong, and by direction of Mr. James Wilson he was sent a short gallop of a mile and a quarter. The horse went in his usual determined manner, but Mr. Wilson noticed that he seemed to have a little of that sore- ness under the left shoulder that affected him a short time befóte the Melbourne Cup was run for. . A little blood was also noticed in,his nostrils, but as the horse did well on being brought back to his box, no notice was taken of these symptoms. While Mr. Wilson was arranging with Mr. i$o«eph Thompson, the owner of the iioi-se, what races he was to go...

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Correspondent). Adelaide, February 28, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Corespondent). Adelaide, February 28, 1874. The most important occurrence which ha* transpired since the de- parture of the Tarama is the arrival of intelligence from Perth that Major Warburton and his explor- ing party had reached DeGrey River-a river which empties ltsell on the North-west coast, m latitude 20 ° , longitude 119 ° y". This news was brought to Adelaide by a steamer _the Georgette - which arrived from Perth and King Georges Sound oil Sunday last. The news ¡ >W2S. of the briefest description fcndeed it simply conveyed the an- nouncement of the Major's safety, and gave no particulars of his explorations. Great anxiety had been felt respecting the explorers, and the Hon. Thos. Elder with considerate thoughtfulness had de- spatched a light relief party in search of the veteran leader. It seems that these most recent explorations have been carried on amidst great "privations, and that tire party weic put to such s'raits as to have to k...

Hume and the Leichardt Hoax. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

Hume and the Leichardt Hoax. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Mr. A. Giles, in his letter of the 10th of March, gives unnecessary credit to the Government of New South Wales for letting Hume aro on his last journey. JNow, if they had intended to test his story at all, they would have provided him with an outfit and made arrangements for starting him into the country when he reached the interior. But they simply told him he might go if he liked, and when he came on board the Omeo at Newcastle he hud nothing with him except what he stood upright in-a blue shirt, a pair of white trousers, a paper collar, a cloth' cap, <fec. The New South Wales Government, more- over, had not provided the man with a passage from Newcastle to the Northern Territory, but threw him upon Mr. Todd, who hesitated very much about taking him on board, and would not have done so at all, if the Chief Secretary of South Australia had not been communicated with and induced to give Hume a passage. So much, then, for th...

The Southport Alligators. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

The Southport Alligators. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-In your last issue you stated that the alligator captured on Good Friday was shot by Mr. Murray. But seldom is such a sight seen as was witnessed by the inhabitants of Southport on that afternoon. At about 4 o'clock the not uncommon cry of alligator was heard. This in- terested but few until the crack of a we'1-known rifle was heard rever- berating on the shores of the Black- more ; then the inhabitants collected and lined the banks of this famous alligator haunt. The monster was first observed lying on the water at the edge of the mangroves opposite the Government jetty. Mr. A. H. Somner fired the first shot at the animal from the jetty. Mr. Murray requested the natives to fetch the boat, which was moored in the middle of the stream. The natives refused, upon which he plunged in and bade them follow, and indeed they did; they brought the boat ashore, it was then manned by two A. B's and five natives, Mr. Murray and Mr. Somner standing- i...

An Inconsistent Friend. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

An Inconsistent Friend. The manufacture of intelligence in times of stagnation is an important industry in the Western States of America, where the newspaper editors are often at their wits' end to find suf- ficient food of a stimulating nature to satisfy the voracious appetites of their readers. Very interesting details are given by the Cineinatti ùàzette of the ingenuity displayed in this line by Mr. Bennet, now dead, but once editor of the Cineinatti Enquirer. It was Mr. Bennet's practice when news was scarce to make small imaginary children tumble from the Newport ferryboat into the Ohio River, where they would have certainly perished but for the gallantry of a gentleman who happened to witness the occur- rence, and who plunged into the wrater J and rescued them-this gentleman being always some personal friend of Mr. Bennet's, whom he delighted to honor. Some of these heroes, how- ever, at last became wearied of the distinction thus thrust upon them, and a certain Mr. Kellum, wh...

The Anti-Fever Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

The Anti-Fever Tree. The Eucalyptus globulus, or Aus- tralian bluegum, is growing in popu- larity as " an anti-lever tree." The New York Tribune thinks the good effects which have followed tis plant- ing in California should lead to its introduction into all the Gulf States, and that it might now be tried farther north. In Medical Notes and Queries for December we find the following:-"At the last meeting of the French Academy of ¡Science an interesting communication was read from M. Girnhert, who has long been engaged in collecting evidence" con- cerning the Australian tree Eucalyp- tus globlus, the growth of which is surprisingly rapid, attaining besides gigantic dimensions. This plant, it now appears, possesses the extra- ordinary power of destroying mias- matic influence in fever-stricken districts. It has the singular pro- perty of absorbing ten times its weight of water from the soil, and of emitting antiseptic camphorous effluvia. When sown in marshy ground it will dry up in a...
