CAVE ADULLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 27 April 1876
CAVE ADULLAM. TuE extraordinary fatcility with which men recklessly risk.the loss bf life, and sacrifice present comfort for future luxury has again been exemplified in th6 late Cooktown rush. M1isled by tlhe false re p7rosontations of one Mulligan, hundreds of diggers from all parts of the colonies made thehir way to a distant portion of thle Cooltown regions, known as the HIodgkinson River, only to find Mulligan's version a hideous delusion. The most distressing accounts reach us of thie misery starvation, and other horrors which be strewed tlhe path of the deceived gold seekers. The surviving victims, seem, however, determined to revenge thle death of their mates and themselves, at the samo time upon somebody or somoething else. Thie CooKTowN HERLD is to be burnt down for publishing the glowing accounts of MIulligan, and 800 diggers are looking about for thle deceiver himiself, in order to lynch himn. In the latter case an oppor tunity will be aflforded for a new version of "The ...

Prince A1lfred lHospit?al. THE speech of His Excellency the Governor, at the laying of the Founln tion stone of the Prince Alfred Hos pital, will be read with much interest. Whatever other sins of omission or commission may be laid to the charge of Sir HEROULrES RonILNsOen, that of not having courage to speak his mind cannot be iticluded. At the banquet in celebration of.the extension of the railway to Bathurst, the Governor did not hesitate to express his opinion of the dilatory manner in which the rail way policy of this colony have been carried one, regardless of the implied slur that might be conveyed in his remarks upon the energy of the present Government, of whlichl he is presumed to be the head. On Thursday, while speaking of the great benefit of the future Prince Alfrod Hospital, he enunciated some opinioni which are rather at variance with those generally received on the principles of hospital snupport and governmoent.

Only a few have yet put in the plough, and solving wil bo altogether out of the ques tion till these is rain to refresh the hard annd thirsty soil. I am afraid that during the corm ing winter, stocle will suaier severely; as, even if there were railn, it would prove too late to canuse the grass to spring. rWe have already had three or four heavy frosts, though tha weather during the day lhas been beatifudl.
