Alleged Discovery of Leichardt's Party. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

Alleged Discovery of Leichardt's Party. The following letter has been ^'dressed by Mr. Todd, Superinten "ent oí Telegraphs, South Australia, to the Adelaide papers. It will be f^en that the facts stated by Mr. *odd are, in most important par tlculars, quite inconsistent with Hume's account, as given in the Brisbane papers ; and that supposing his verbal statements are correctly reported, then the whole narrative must be a fabrication. Mr. Todd says : " In this morning's Advertiser is published a telegram from Brisbane, which states that Atulrew Hume, whose alleged discovery of Mr. Clas- sai!, poor Leichardt's second in com- mand, was published in your issue of Friday last, reports that he saw fifteen camels near the Port Darwin telegraph line (ive months ago. Ile supposed they must have belonged to Major Warburton's expedition, and states that he believes the party is lost. From my personal know- ledge of Hume, 1 think it exceed- ingly strange, it he really saw the the camels/he did...

Camp Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

Camp jiotes. Australian snake stories .sink into insignificance as compared with what can be said of reptiles in Central America. Boyle, in his recen ti y pub- lished work, <* Camp Notes," giv-js in the subjoined words his adventure with a twenty-five footer : - We'd travelled a mile or two before dawn, an' the sun was just up, when I heard a wildish sort of cry in the bush. I stopped, of course, to see what might be going; but your Greaser, he said, 'twer only calf crying*, and we'd best get on. I said, " That ein't no calf, yer fool ! Get on with yer, it' yer like, and save yer darned yellar skin," So he bowed as perlite as might be, an' went off. I hitched my halter to a prickly espadille standing there, an' took the bush with my machete an' six-shooter. One or two more cries came ringing out, ringing through me like the voice of no beast ever I see, but they died away choked like. I got on as fast as thorns would let. an' after a while I heerd a rusilingan a crunching...

Northern Terriotyr Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, MAY 1, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

flortfte^t Sïçrritorg 8Fimcs. PaÍiMbustoíí : Friday, May 1, 1874. ..'Our Criminals," we aro afraid, will soon become a standing- subject with us. They ave cropping up in a moat disagreeable manner, and are becoming iar too numerous. Each serpent brings forth seven other ser- pents. And what are we to do with thom ? It is the case, generally speaking, in districts far removed from long established communities, that the criminal law is obliged to be sharp and decisive, because lawless men are numerous and means of escape are plentiful. Hence it is that Safety Committees have often been tolerated by orderly people. Other tribunals have failed, and therefore these novel methods have been found useful. But we have not come to that state of things yet in the Northern Territory, though Ave are certainly beginning to feel some of the bad effects of being unable to deal fully with our criminals. As no prisoners can be tried here excepting for minor offences, there is naturally a feeling abro...

Robinson Crusoe's Island. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

Robinson Crusoe's Island. The island of Juan Fernandez presents the most striking appear- ance of wild and abruptly" precipitous mountain scenery I ever remember to have seen. Though small in actual circumference, from the water's edge it rises, with the excep- tion of Cumberland and English ba\s, in bold and massive mountains, which, towards the interior, shoot up into lofty peaks or inaccessible table- like summits. The slopes of these mountains, running down to the val- leys, are covered with a species ot wild oat, which gives luxuriant pas- turage to the many flocks of wild goats which abound on the island, rendeiing their flesh unusually pal- atable. Pulling, along under the gigantic cliffs, hundreds of feet in height, one constantly sees a herd of "these extraordinary sure-footed animals, spiinging from one project- ing rock to another upon the face of the clirf, gaining a greater height, scared by the strange sound ot the human voice echoing through their lonely haunts-though...

Baroness Burdett-Coutts. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

Baroness Burdett-Coutts. Two or three years ago Her Majesty conferred on the lady known throughout the Kingdom, and far beyond its bounds, as Miss Curdett Coutts, the dignity of the peerage. In so doing the Queen showed her sympathy with the prevailing senti- ment of the people, as to the honor due to this benevolent lady. Angela Georgina Burdett-Boutts is the youngest daughter of the late Sir Francis Burdett, a man of histori- cal reputation, as one of the first who, since the commencement of the present century, openly advocated in the British Parliament the exten- sion of the franchise to the great body of the'pcoplc. In 1809 Sir Francis Burdett moved a resolution in the House of Commons in favor of Reform. The renewal of war against Napoleon 1 rendered the House un- willing to entertain his project, which was then thought to be of a very sweeping character. Shortly after- wards, in consequence of the excite- ment which prevailed, the House of Commons excluded strangers, and took...

What the Blacks are Good for. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

What the Blacks aro Good for. «'A Wandering Phib*ph-*r, writ to the duifralasian from the Darling River district, says : " When a traveller in New South Wales passes over a station he can easily de^ermine whether it belongs to a Victorian or a New South Welshman by merely looking around. On the sta ions of the former enter- prise and improvement are the order of the day, whilst on those of the latter an easy-going philosophical inaction prevails." All improvements, however, are to a great extent pre- vented by the want of hands to exe- cute them. Indeed were it not for the aid of the unfortunate blacks, male and female, I cannot under- stand how it would be possible to perform all the ordinary duties con- nected with station management. On some stations the blacks perform all the ordinary work. They act as shepherds ana shepherdesses. On cattle stations the men are very useful at the musterings and brand- ings. Everywhere they are valuable Servants; especially are they useful in loo...

Golden Shares. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

Golden Shares. The shades of night were falling fast. As underneath the Exchange there pass'd A youth with smile childlike and bland, Whose talk was of that far-olf land Of golden shares. His brow was glad, his eye beneath Danced hike a tom-cat on the heath, And like a concertina rung The accents of that unknown tongue On golden shares. At the Saloon he saw the light Of gas jets gleaming warm and bright ; He heard the rippling nobblers flow, The spirit of the shares you know Gold shares. " Try not to pass," a broker said, Ile vowed he'd punch the broker's head. " Beware !" he cried, "I seek for these» Nina, Priscilla, aud Louise Dear golden shares. " O stay !" the bar nymph said, " and rest Thy weary head upon my breast." But pensively he smole a smile, And turned from her-and thought the while Of golden shares. A change came o'er his spirit's dream, He found mines aie not what they seem ; Like Austral's dust the call caine fast, And now, alas I the time has passed Por golden shai"»...

The Territory—Its Position and Circumstances. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 1 May 1874

The Territory-lbs Position and Circumstances. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It is an unquestionable fact that the Territory is at the present time at its very lowest ebb, and'must henceforth rise. But its rise horn this will have to be of a legitimate character; therefore we may not ex- pect a sudden jump up, such as have taken place heretofore. We must be satisfied to grow according to the richness of our soil, and by the assist- ance of suitable culture. Hence, our . alluvial goldfields, which are already Î>roved to be rich, require talented abour and pluck to develop them; our reefs, which are despised here because they will not realise ico oz?, per ton, want men of sense and cal- culation connected with them ere lhey will be cither profitable 01 creditable.
