Death of Thomas John Kelly. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 11 April 1891

Death of Thomas John Kelly. " . . . We have lost him: he is gone:   "We know him now: all narrow jealousies     " Are silent; and we see him as he moved; " How modest, kindly, all-accomplished, wise, " Wearing the white flower of a blameless life, "Before a thousand peering littlenesses."     Alas! another face and form are removed   from among us by the dread sentinel. THOMAS JOHN KELLY, Whom we all knew and loved, breathed his last yesterday afternoon. For a long time his friends realised that his health was not   all that could be wished, and that his some- time iron constitution was slowly but none the   less surely crushing, and that the end must happen at no distant date, but until within the last few days few realised it was so near. Mr. Kelly was a native of Kilrush, in the County Clare, and was born in 1834, and arrived in this colony early in the sixties, and engaged him...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 11 April 1891

Local and General. AT the Police Court on Saturday John Deady, charged with drunkenness, was fined £2, or in default, three months' imprison- ment with hard labor. A boy named James Allen, was charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm on another lad named J. War- burton, and was discharged, as the father of the injured boy did not wish to prosecute. The injury alleged was inflicted with a stone from a shanghai, which struck Warburton on the left eye. HIGH-STREET between Gill and Ryan streets has been in a fearful state of puddle during the past week. No attempt has been made to improve it, either by kerbing or channelling, and the consequence is that the drainage from, the Hospital grounds runs across the street and on to the allotments on the other side. Dr. Forrest informed us yesterday that he can scarcely get into his house from High-street owing to the large   pool of water which lodges there. It is time the Council repaired this street, as a con- siderable amou...

The Darling Gardens Murder! THE EXECUTION OF JOHN WILSON. THE HANGMAN PERFORMS HIS WORK WELL. WILSON'S DYING STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 11 April 1891

The Darling Gardens Murder!       THE EXECUTION OF JOHN WILSON. THE HANGMAN PERFORMS HIS WORK WELL. WILSON'S DYING STATEMENT. THE execution of John Wilson at the Melbourne Gaol on Monday, 23rd March, for the murder of Estella Leah Marks, his sweetheart, in the Darling Gardens, Clifton Hill, on the night of Sunday, 25th January last (particulars of which were published in the   NORTHERN MINER recently), was one of, if not the most, expeditious exe- cutions that have been carried out within that gaol. Wilson maintained a firm state of mind throughout, and the anticipation that he would go to the gallows just as firmly has been fulfilled, whilst the quick and skilful manner in which the hangman per- formed his task prevented any suffer- ing. The convict had paid fervent atten- tion to the Rev. Mr. Higgins, Wesleyan gaol chaplain, and the Rev. Ralph Brown, Wesleyan minister of Albert Park Wesleyan Church. At the appointed hour—10 o'clo...

QUEENSLAND. BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) TOWNSVILLE, April 5. Two passengers named Ford, while trying to reach the s. Burdekin which was lying out- side the Johnstone river bar, were drowned through a boat capsizing on the bar. Their bodies have not yet been recovered. They were told to wait till the ship's boat came for them, but started in a private one, al- though they were warned not to cross the bar. The boat was rowed by two Cingalese, and was steered by one known as "Casso-   warry Jim," who is supposed to have been drunk at the time. TOWNSVILLE, April 8. A meeting was held to-night to raise funds for the widow of the late Hon. John Mac- rossan. The Mayor presided, and a large and influential committee was appointed. Seventy-three pounds were subscribed in the room. Tke rough work in extending the Western Breakwater will be completed to-morrow, and the whole contract will be completed in about two months.

Pickets and "Persuasiou." [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

| Pfeketsand "Persuasiou" THE Rev. A Osborne JAY, vicar of Holy Trinity, Shoreditch, lias recently given pub licity to a sad story of poverty and trade union tyranny wlrch has came under his notice. This is the outline of the tale, as pathetic a one, we venture to say, as any the public have heard of late. A p or man, "with five children, obtained an offer of work at 30s. a week on board the ship Scotland, at the Albert Docks. He was only too glad to get the chance of work, and Mr. JAY, having paid his fare- to the docks, he started to accept the promised employment. Naturally, the mob of hostile workmen out side the dock gates tried to prevent his ezitry, but the police did their duty in protecting him, and he found himself inside at last. It might be supposed that, having actually got within the gates, he would be safe from molestation Not at all. tip came "two burly pi?keJ s," as Mi*. Jay calls them, abused him as a " blackleg," and ordered him out of the docks. In vain, says Mr....

Scientific Notes. Hints to Prospectors. VII. PRECIOUS STONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

- to Prospeelopg. [Br A. V. Clarks, F.GLS.] Til. PRECIOUS STOKES. THIS subject is a distinct branch. of ; mineralogy, and I have 110 intention of treating on such a matter at large. The recognition of gems in. the rough is often a matter of some diffi culty to experienced men trained in this particular branch of the science. It will suffice, therefore, if we consider the gems of greater value-diamonds, rabies, and sapphires, to which might perhaps be added zirkons, as a demand is arising for zirkons in the manu facture of cylinders for the lime tight * What increases the difficulty of testing gems is that yon cannot powder them up and fuse them oil charcoal before the blowpipe, as is the rule with common minerals. Neither can you'apply the hammer and anvil test, that I am assured was the very rough and ready and utterly falaclous test as taught and practised by a scientist in Stauthorpe. It is superfluous to say that few gems survived, and none ever came out of this ordeal un scathe...

Farm and Garden. Healthy Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

?m ABOVE every ol&er point, our efforts should be to have our poultry bml% and to keep them so, but to do tins requires a great deal of foresight and care on the part of the owner. la summer if they are exposed to the hot sua and have no place to retreat to, to get out of it into the shade, disease and loss are Bare tofollow; nottemporaxy disease or loss, hut a permanent lose. Just so long as youkeepa lot of poultry that has once been so exposed you axe laboring under diffi culties from the fact that such will never give as good satie&ction, and are much more liable to be attacked by disease than poultry that have been properly cared for. The same rule will hold good with poultry that have once been stunted by improper or in sufficient feeding; they will never come up , to the high-water mark. STo matter what treatment they receive, thej have been in jured, and will never fully recover therefrom, so that if we wish to -have good, healthy, strong, and paying poultry, ...

Are You Prepared! [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

Are You Prepared ! ABB you prepared to meet that festive louse and its myriads of followers half way ? Use rigid methods. Make & pail of whitewash, add an ounce of carbolic acid to it, and whitewash the interior of every coop thoroughly. Kerosene the roost, nest, cracks, and crevices. Clean out the old dirt and add new. Sprinkle air-slacked liine over the floor. Burn sulphur in the houses while the fowls are out. Remove the scales from the fowls' legs. Dust the fowls with pur^ Persian insect powder, and, our word for it, what lice are able to stand the racket will leave the premises in disgust. Accumulated drop pings breed lice; so does filth of all kinds. Cleanliness is not to their taste, and if you wan't to disgust this pest, follow out these instructions. A great many of the summer complaints among fowls are caused by lice. Hemore the vermin and the sick generally get well.

To THE EDITOR. HIE.-1 saw in fr aturday's Moheu, (which reached me at noon on Monday), a letter "written by Mr Canny, wherein he accuses me of untruthfulness. To quote liis own words, he says, " I beg to assure him there was no truth in the statement made by Mr Deane . that I called liim away, and said there was I other business to be attended to, when he was examining Corsiean." Later on in liis letter, Mr Canny says, " I, at the request of one of the stewards asked Mr Deane to come and get out the Forced Handicap, as it was ' getting late." All those that were present that | day know that it was not late and we ; got through our work in good time on Easter j Monday, and they are the best judges as to I whether Mr Canny's statement or mine is the correct one.

CHAPTEB X.-JACK BARLTL'S VISITOR. Jack Barlyl had little difficulty in overtaking the mysterious visitor who had called at Captain Pothergille's rooms. That tall figure, heavily veiled, with its neutral tinted shabby garments, aod nervous gliding gait, was easily distinguishable amongst the tide of human life that at this hour flowed through Piccadilly. In what the attraction lay which she exercised over him he could not say ; her quaint and singular appearance, her abrupt and nervous manner, aroused his curiosity, and excited his interest; something in the paleandworn face, with ifcd bright brown hair prematurely streaked with gray, assured him she had a history in which sorrow had played a prominent^part. Remaining, well in the background, he kept close watch npon her, re solving to ira^k her movements and ascertain where she lived. She con tinued her way down. Piccadilly towards the Circus; now moving swiftly along, and again falling into a slow loiteiing pace. At the corners of ...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOB.

Mr Deane has the repu tation of being an honorable and perfectly straight man, but on the occasion referred ti in the heat of argument he allowed his zeal to outrun his sense of justice. I will now for Sportsman's information state the facts as tley occurred. When Corsican was being ex amined by Messrs Deane and Pritchard, I was In the weighing-room weighing tut the jockeys, and had just finished weighing Corsican's rider when Mr Deane came into the room and asked the boy for his whip. I picked up the whip from where I had. put it down, having taken it out of the boy's hand after he got into the scale, and handed it to Mr Deane, so that I was actually inside the weighing-room when...
