Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

Jtoi¡tfy?n Sfyîifflrg 0im*& Palmerston : Fbiday, April 17, 1874. We understand that the Government Resident has received an answer from Mr. Freer on the subject of bringing Chinese coolies to the Northern Territory, but it appears that the terms as to the cost of such labour, and the expense of introducing1 it, are not such as the Adelaide Government are likely to entertain. On the same subject the Government Resident has received a telegram from Yam Greek j and it appears to be the opinion of mining authorities there that Chinese from Victoria would be the best to be employed on the reefs in this country. No doubt there is considerable truth in this, and it is very likely that tor mining purposes Victorian Chinese will be the first to be introduced here, as some of the employers of labor in this settlement have been accustomed to men of that sort, and are well acquainted with the best means of obtaining them. Of course there are some people who have a prejudice against Chin...

Remarkable Discovery of a Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 April 1874

Remarkable Discovery of a Murder. In the year 1871, the Australian Guano Company sent John Wright, a much-trusted servant of the Com- pany, accompanied by Patrick Nolan, who was to act in the capacity of his cook, to Bird Island, to look after the interests of the Company there. After some time Nolan was found alone on the island. He stated that Wright had been drowned whilst "coralling," and that he himself had been alone for three months. He was brought to Hobart Town, there being no reason apparently to suspect the truth fulness-of his statement, and much sympathy was felt for him on account of the peculiar hardships he had undergone, and his long solitary occupation of so unattractive a place. Lately the Wolverine left Launceston for Bird Island. It brought the skeleton of a murdered man, with the back part of the jaw smashed, a large wound in the back of the head, and another in the forehead, and there seems to be no reason to doubt that the remains are those of Wright. The dis...

The Aborigines. AN AUSTRALIAN LEGEND. (By R. W., Adelaide, May, 1857.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

The Aborigines. AX AUSTRALIAN LEOENI). (By R. W., Adelaide, May, 1857.) Where painted warriors hurled the glanc- ing spear ; Where dusky damsels tripped through forest glade ; Where hunter's cry and war-shout echoed elcar, Now, mingling rise the bxisy sounds of trade. No more on Torrens' swift and silent streams The swarthy spearmen launch their bark canoes : No more along its shore the bittern screams. The streams themselves their waters half refuse, As, though they proudly scorned their now degenerate use. Where gaping chimnies pufl' their sooty cloud ; Where creaking wheels from morn till evening throng ; Where love of gain drives on the white faced crowd, The forest bird was wont to pour its song. And there, too, oft-let books say what tlicy will Tho bright blue sky looked down on happy hearts ; For, oh ! 'tis true that God's great won- ders fill The mind with joy beyond all earthly arts, Or anything yet learnt in cloisters, schools, or marts. " Traditions, floating like mysteri...

A New Writing Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

A New Writing Machine. The San Francisco Bulletin contains the following: E. S. Beiden, phonetic reporter, oí this city, has received from New York one of the first five writing machines manufactured in this country. It is of English invention, but has been modi- fica in New York and is to be still further improved by combination with an invention on which a patent has been issued to Charles A. Washburn, of San Francisco. The machines already manufactured are made without regard to Mr. Wash bum's method, which, it is believed, possesses features which will greatly add to its value. The machine is about as large as an ordinary sewing machine, but requires much less labor to work it. In fact, it is self acting in nearly all its movements, except the liglit touches required by the operator to indicate the letters of fhe alphabet, figures, and punctua- tion marks. These characters are at the extremities of steel hammers, connected by wires with the keys, which are arranged in four rows,...

Sand and Mud Baths. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

Sand and Mud Baths. Baths ot sand or mud have had a reputation, more or less deserved, for centuries ; and at the present day are employed to a considerable extent in différent parts of the world. By the former, the inhabitants of the eastern shores of the Mediterranean expect to cure their rheumatic and -sorefu¡or.s-troubles. -The pwcess-t>f taking this " cure " is very simple ; the patient buries himself almost completely in the hot dry sand, and remains thus some time after a pro- fuse perspiration has broken out ; the perspiration is soon followed by a rash upon the skin, which subsides in a few days. The little benefit arising from this cure is due in the main to the sweat- ing, which frees the blood from impurities through the pores of the skin, which latter is locally irritated and excited to greater action by direct contact with the sand. But the latter, the mud baths, so popular on the continent of Europe, among which those of Salzburg, Franzenbad, and Marienbad in Ger- ...

Metropolitan Letter. (From an Occasional Correspondent.) Adelaide, February 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

Metropolitan Letter. (From au Occasional Correspondent.) Adelaide, February 28. You remember how camels were laughed at some years ago when it was proposed to introduce them into South Australia. Mr. G. Hawker and others ridiculed the proposition to such an extent that the Assembly was led to believe that the camel was some sort of monster which would do as much mischief as Recs's "wooden horse." It would frighten other cattle, it would bite squatters ; it would de- stroy sheep ; and make the northern runs quite useless. In fact, the very odour of the camel would destroy the fertility of the country. But now see the result. The camel has been used in several explorations ; it has been turned to good account in telegraph construction ; and it lias become quite a familar animal in the far north; yet the country still remains occupied, and nobody has been killed by either the smell or the voice of the unfor- tunate beast. So much for Mr. Hawker's predictions. People who have recently r...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

Ijtottttop Sfyrritorg ffiimta. Palmerston : Fkiday, Arnii, 24, 1874. A land system may be very liberal, and yet it inay be so worked as to make it illiberal. Look at our own Northern Territory Land Act, for instance. It really seems as though the Government were deliberately setting aside the wishes of the legis- lature for the sake of benefitting those speculative holders of land who bought their sections when the coun- try was first opened, and who still look anxiously for some change that shall make those sections extremely valuable. Such owners of land, as a matter of course, do not want fresh quantities put into the market, and would rather discourage settlement altogether than see the few people who have come here supplied with allotments direct from the Govern- ment, instead of being compelled to purchase them of the first holders. And this shows the miserable folly of attempting to found a new settle- ment by land-jobbing* ; for the jobbers do not care a farthing for the pla...

Destructive Gale in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

Destructive Gale in New Zealand. For a long time past we have en- joyed most excellent weather, the "only fault found with it being that the drought was too prolonged, and that the crops were suffering in con- sequence. As the afternoon of Saturday advanced heavy squalls came from the south-west, with fast driving showers, and at times it appeared as if a heavy fall of rain were to set in. The wind mean- while kent up, and towards evening increased until it blew a hurricane. Houses creaked and rocked upon their foundations, insecure verandahs came down by the run, chimney stacks were blown down, smashing through roofs of houses, fences went down by the mile, and a general scene of destruction ensued. Still the gale hour by hour increased, and by 9 o'clock it was plainly seen by every one that TEolus was in a thoroughly bad temper, and that he cared not what havoc was committed amongst the possessions of the sons of men. The storm still increased in severity, and the wind suddenly ch...

Amalgamation of Claims, &c., under the new Act. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 24 April 1874

Amalgamation of Claims, &c, under the new Act. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-By the proclamation of the Government Resident regarding the amalgamation of quartz claims-all benchts derivable from such a com- bination oí labor and capital are a delusion ; no apparent object is gained. It is a well known fact that the opening up of the reefs in Vic- toria and the other colonies, and the present prosperous state of their quartz mines has been brought about by a judicious and wise system of amalgamation, enabling holders of claims to combine at a less expense, to test lines of reef by sinking one shaft until payable gold was struck, when the full complement of men were required to be put on any claims amalgamated ; otherwise there was necessitated the squandering of | capital beibrc ground was proved, wn.in one shaft would fully do so at a great saving of expense.
