LETTERS. LETTERS to the Editor must be couchep ! in respectful and simple language j and as concise as possible. In every j case thc writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] BiiiTundio Hospital. TO THE EDITOR. I Sir-Great indignation was expressed j here yesterday when it was reported j that ür. Ternan was to be removed and the hospital closed. A meeting was at once convened and hold last night in the Pioneer Hotel to discuss what steps should be taken in the matter. It was decided to at once wire the resolutions of (he meeting to the Hon. the Minister for the Territory, forwarding copies to the Government Resident and the press, and it is hoped these early measures will suggest some considerativo feeling to the Government for the interests of the up- country residents. I am, Sir, Sec., G. P. DEANE, Chairman of Meeting. Burrundie, 30th January, 1890.
MINING MEMOS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 10 January 1890
AliN LNG ME-UOS. From a person who lias just come in from Adam Johns and party's tin claim at Mount Tolmer we. learn that thc crushing and concentrating piant is now all ready for work, and the mill would probably lie in operation before this was written. There is a large liody of ore on the surface handy for crushing straight away, hut it is not likely that more than two shifts a day ".will yet be worked. The proprietors, who, with Chinese assistance, an: developing the properties themselves, are very .sanguine as to what tho results from the mine j will eventually be, and the least we can j do is hope their pluck will be suitably j rewarded. The tin claim held hy Auld Jiros, is about eight miles south of Johns and party's, and from this the reports are exceedingly encouraging. Some samples from this claim were brought into town on Saturday by .Mr. J. Auld, which have been greatly admire:!, lt is said with regard to this mine that the show on top was a very indifi'erent one ; but a...

^Iic ¡Sjfarlh ^»slraliati. anil Xortlierii Territory Government Cosette. i Hf DAY, JAXTJAlîY 10, ISilO. Customs Returns. Titra quarterly Customs report just I published will not bo generally re- garded ns satisfactory, but there are those who will be philosophic enough to feel gratified that the returns are not a great deal poorer. I n a few of thc many lines we have considerable increases noted, while in other im- portant branches the fulling off is so slight as not to be worth taking heed of. Still, all things beiug I allowed for, the returns are not at all satisfying when given iu connec- tion with a young colony which should be going ahead by leaps and bounds iustead of dragging out a meagre existeucc. Taking the figures as they come, aud beginning with revenue, we lind an increase of £147 in the Darwin collections, an increase of £222 in MacArthur liiver dues, a slight increase io Camooweal returns, but a falling off in the figures for Charlotte Waters, as compared with the ret...

Local Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 10 January 1890
Palmerston Railway returns for week ended January 4th, 1890-£229. The altered country mail time-tahle is published this week in view of the contemplated railway changes. The biggest thing of the century in the way of journalism is unquestionably the issuing of London GRAIIIC daily, of which we have notice in our telegrams this week. It is now possible to send letters all over Victoria for a penny a piece. Up in this benighted region things are slightly different. If we desire to com- municate through post with a friend in the next street an ordinary letter would cost 2d ! On the best authority wo learn that it is as good as settled that Mr. Wigley shall be our next G. R., but the exact date of his advent here is not known. Neither is it certain when the Hon. J. L. Parsons is to step out of ollice. probably not for many weeks yet. A Chinese lunatic was brought down from Pine Creek by Tuesday's train, and afterwards sent to the Hospital foi treatment. Moral for the Chinese : Act the l...

English & Foreign. London, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 10 January 1890
English & Foreign. Londou, Jíiuuary 8. Thr» recent sudden change in the constitution of Brazil is being fol- lowed by the inevitable troubles. A number of sailors ou board a Brazilian man-of-war have given cheers for the discarded Emperor, and in many otber ways it is being shown that the republican sentiment is by no means so unanimous as was supposed. Plots are being hatched among the discontented loyalists for a restoration of the old order of things, and a number of these detected con- spirators against the Republic have been most summarily shot, in view of the threatening condition of affairs the Government has proclaimed martial law. Au important departure iu journalism has just taken place in London, tho well-known GRAPHIC being now issued as an illustrated daily ; the idea has been nuder dis- cussion for some time past, and its realisation is the outcome of recent improvements in tho system of photographic illustrations.

New South Wales. Sydney, Jan. 8. À public meeting luis been held to consider the question of doing some- thing to mark the public apprecia- tion of Pearle's merits as a sculler and the general sorrow excited by his untimely end. lt was unani- mously decided that the erection of a monument would bo the most fitting tribute to his memory, ¡iud a subscription list, was opened forth- with. Over £1U0 was subscribed in the room, and little doubt, is enter- tained that the total amount re- quired will lie readily forthcoming, j tt was settled that the monument should be erected on "Tho Brothers," a rock which marks the finish of the championship course on the Parra- matta River. Several boating accidents took ' place in tho harbour on New Year's Day, and in one instance three young men, whose boat was capsized by a sudden shift of wind, were drowned before assistance could reach them.
