It is an entry made in tho Visitor's Book of the Palmerston Gaol by Mr. W. R. Cowan, Government Resident of Wyndham, W.A.:-"Nov. 25th.-I have this day visited the Gaol and fail to see how any person being in his right mind can pretend to find any cause of just complaint either in the building or the management in connec- tion with the establishment.-(Signed) W. R. COWAN, Government Resident, Wyndham." Two Chinese came down from Pine Creek on Tuesday last in custody of Mounted-Constable Hague. These men were brought up at the Police Court at Pine Creek on a charge of having stolen gold quartz in their possession.

English & Foreign. j LONDON, Dec. 4. W. E. Gladstone, in the course of a recent speech delivered at Man- chester, said he distrusted Lord Salisbury's foreign policy, and feared it would lead to England beiug placed in a critical situation. Re- ferring to Irish affairs, he expressed his confident conviction that the people of Ireland would shortly be endowed with the right of self government in spite of all the tac- tics of those who opposed the scheme. It was the grand policy of the future ; the feeling in its favour was glowing stronger day by day, and he would defy the most power- ful Government long to resist the iucreasiug weight of public opinion j in this particular case. He spoke afc length on the future policy of the ! party immediately under his own ¡ leadership, and said it included cheap allotments of land for the people, improved dwelling-houses, free education, the lessening of the ' periods of Parliamentary sessions, Home Eule for Scotland and Wales, and the re...

THE NICHOLL GOLDFIELD. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] NICHOLL, Oct. 16, 1889. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 6 December 1889
THE NICHOLL GOLD- FIELD. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] NICHOLL,, Oct. 16, 1889. The Nicholl goldfield, the latest discovery in Western Australia, is situated about 12 miles vest of Roe- burne, and in sight of the beach. All, or nearly all, the miners from Nallygine, Pilburra, and Egina are collected hero, and those fields mentioned above are almost a thing of the past. Its dis- covery came about in this way. Some time ago a Chinaman picked up a nugget weighing 33oz., and the revela- tion of this find caused tremendous excitement among the Roebournites, and Government officials, clerks, and even children swarmed to the new El Dorado-it reminded one of the early gold digging days. The Chinese who made the discovery must have been a more than usually innocent kind of heathen. He came straight with his find to a brother celestial, employed as cook, in the service of the resident doctor at Roeburne. This individual communicated the discovery to his master. This gentleman immediately hast...
