fyht tarife ^n*tal»u. and Northern Territory Government Gazette. I EID A Y, JANUARY 24, 1890. IT will be very difficult for tho majority of thoughtful readers to distinguish auy similarity between a timber forest and a plantation of pineapples. The one (if we have it at all) is originally bequeathed to us by nature; the other is a thing dependant upon artificial labour and human genius. It is not, however, a SINE QUA NON that all men should be of the one opiuiou, even on a matter of this kind, where there is surely no reasonable cause for an intemperate division of sentiment. Our contemporary evidently holds some original theories on the point referred to. lu a burst of misjudged j irony, the TIMES makes no attempt to deal separately with the question i of a trade in pineapples, but argues ( that because we are not (so far as we know at preseut) blessed with auy extent of ti moer forests, it follows as an indisputable sequence that we can not grow pineapples hero to supply thc Adela...

Telegraphic News. FROM OUR OWN CORESPONDENT. South Australia. Adelaide, January 23. General Downes has withdrawn his resignation ; the result of the in- vestigation into Captain Howie's chargés is not yet'Known.

A cablegram in a late exchange says that the Pelican Club- has exonerated Smith, his backer, and his manager from blame in connection with the mobbing of Slavih at Brussels ; and the com- mittee report that there is no evidence to show who employed the roughs. On December 30th the Hon. James White's English Derby colts had a trial spin over a six-furlong course along with their Australian mate, Plutarch. At the finish Plutarch had the lead, with Narellan next and Kirkham last. Tom Clifford, the Sydney sculler, is said to be in great form just now, and anxious to compete again for champion honours.

MINING MEMOS. The Mount Gates Goldfield [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 24 January 1890
-TkHN-ING- MEMOS. Thc Mount Gates Goldfield An occasional correspondent sends the following under date Jan. 14th : 1 paid a visit to Mount Gates to inspect the country and have a look at that portion of it where a quantity of quartz specimens were found on the surface in a space of about 20 feet square to the value of £200, averaging about ljoz. gold to the llb weight of stone one specimen of 91bs weight giving 14oz gold. The country is undoubtedly in appearance everything that could be wished for by an old miner to induce him to give it a trial. The claim on which the specimens were found, belong- ing to Messrs. Lawrie, Murphy, Pearce and Stow, is situated on the top of a hill called Mount Gates, which gives the name to this locality. As to the hill itself it seems to be a confused inter- mingling of reefs and cross reefs, two immense ones, not proved to be cold j bearing, crowning the hill. The claim is called the "Hard to Find " in conse- quence of the difficulty experienced in d...

Local Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890
If«al pty We are informed that the negoti- ations between the Government and the Government Resident are almost con- cluded. Those who are very anxious to know when the Hon. J. L. Parsons will vacate office will therefore have their curiosity gratified at an early date. The Maggie picnic party left here on Friday last and returned on Sunday afternoon, and from all accounts the cruise was merry enough, even under adverse circumstances. Its chief feat- ures were rough weather, rain squalls galore, and a bit of fun on Melville Island. An extended account of the picnic appears elsewhere. The week now ending has been an exceptionally moist on« for Palmerston, and from all accounts for the country too, where, it is said, the rainfall lias been even heavier. On Wednesday night the gauge at the Government Gardens registered a fall of 4-500 inches, while for the same time in town the record was 4-290 inches. Up to thc present wc can hear of no damage having been done to the railway line by t...
N.T. Tobacco Leaf for London. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890
N.T. Tobacco Leaf for London. Some time since thc Hon. J. L. Parsons undertook to forward to Sir Arthur Blyth, thc Agent-General, a case of tobacco leaf grown in the Northern Territory. Overtures were forthwith made to Mr. Richard Jaentsche (Mr. Brandt's manager at Shoal Bay) about supplying the article, and, with Mr. Brandt's consent, Mr. Jaentsche made up a case accordingly and forwarded it to tlie Government Resident last week for transmission to London. Accompany- ing the case was a letter of explanations which han been kindly handed to us, and from which we extract the following references : "The case, weighing 9Glbs, contains 541b. of fermented leaf ; there are two sorts of Havannah, namely, one sort that attained maturity in the wet season and one whose maturity dates rather from the dry season (May), the latter being superior so far as colour and natural aroma are concerned ; the sorts are kept separated, and ample explana- tion is given within the case.

Victoria. Melbourne, January 30. Afc a meeting of shareholders in the Broken Hill proprietary it was unanimously decided to adopt the proposal to increase the shares to, eight hundred thousand, aud to open a registration office in London. The Directors state that Patton intends returning from America. Three hundred and forty cases of typhoid have occurred in the city and suburbs during the past fortnight, thirty-seven of the patients having died. Diptheria is also alarmingly prevalent. A youth named Lambert, aged nineteen, working as a labourer at Glenrowan, is the chief actor in another terrible tragedy. HV first murdered his employer's daughter, a young girl twelve years of age, and thou committed suicide. The conference of delegates of the Australian Natives Association is ended. Nothing practical was ac- complished, and the principal busi- ness of the delegates appears to have lain iu tho direction of chain pague driuking and sightseeing.
It is Said [By The Public] [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890
It is Said [By The Public] That the Melville Island picnic party returned with scalps intact, and that one or two have no desire to go down that way again on a similar errand. That if the niggers had only had the sa wee of a chicken the party might not have lauded at all. That the local natives were only in- duced to stand their ground by a threat of instantaneous death from a Martini. That the appearance of the party as they landed must have been eminently reassuring to the savages, after swamp- ing the boat and nearly drowning one or two of the non-swimmers. That the ducking took all the hunting ardour out of thc Buffalo Bill of the party, who carried a tomahawk with which to cut off the horns of the big sport. That the natives stood on the beach for hours contemplating certain foot- prints in the sand. That a recent arrival from Thursday Island brought typhoid fever with him. That the " piece de resistance " of the coming election must be the Chinese " ticket." That the candidate...
