Queensland. January 30. Tremendous floods continue to be reported from various parts of the colony. The town of Bundaberg is comdletely submerged, causing dis- astrous destruction of property. Only a few fatalities are reported. English & Foreign. London, January 27. The Hon. J. White's Derby entries are fast coining to the front as public favorites, and the prices to be obtaiued about them are daily get- ting shorter. Both horses are now entered for The Leger, the Two Thousand Guineas, and the Grand Pris de Paris. The London Morning Post con- tains a long article dealing with the much talked of scheme of Imperial Federation, for which it predicts the inevitable fate attending all imprac- ticable dreams. It says the time has gone by for Englishmen to look upon the Australian colonies as part of their possessions, and they must awaken to the fact that the Austra- lians were a great and free people, whose power and prosperity was being daily further developed with an energy an...

New South Wales. Sydney, January 30. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890

New South Wales. Sydney, January 30. The annual cricket match with Victoria is now being played. The local representatives scored 349 in their first innings, the Victorians 216; the latter followed on with their second innings, and have lost four wickets for a total of 126. Work is being found for the large numbers of unemployed in the city. Over five hundred are engaged ou various public works. The notorious aboriginal known as Ryan, who recently made his escape from the Grafton Gaol, has since been recaptured, but again effected his escape in a most danu g manner. From the particulars to hand it appears that the trooper who arrested him was obliged to lodge him for the night at a station near where he was captured, intending to return with his prisoner to Grafton the following day. Whilst the con- stable was adjusting the handcuffs, the black suddenly snatched away his revolver, shot him, and made his escape. The coustaole still lives, but is not expected to recover. The blackfell...

The North Australian. and Northern Territory Government Gazette. FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890

ami Xortlicrn Territory Government Gazette. i BID AY, JANUARY 31, 1890. TUE formation of another local gold mining company is a step that will uofc fail to give much gratification to persons interested in miniug in this colony. If there is one thing more than another that can induce outside speculation in the affairs of a new couutry it is this same practical method of helping ourselves. It shows at least that we have con- fidence in the resources of the Territory, aud by placiug our own scant funds out at thc risk of mining speculations we unconsciously give outside capitalists the cue to come here and do likewise. There can be uo doubt that the scarcity of local compauies has hitherto had a very damaging effect upon our mining interests. It stauds to reason that cute speculators of the outer world, to whom we may offer something prime in the way of gold raines, should hesitate before taking it over, and make the very rational enquiry as to why, if wo really have such good things i...

JIJjsirllaiteoiiK <rjijjpiiitis. Tn connection with the cabled intelli- gence anent the destitute circumstances of Mr. 0. .S. Parnell's mother, later newspaper accounts describí; her as having been found sitting, scantily and shabbily clad, in an insufficiently warmed and badly furnished house in New York. Sh« was living upon vege- tables alone and had no other food ; and ; was momentarily dreading eviction bo-1 cause of her inability to pay her interest ' upon the mortgages and the taxes. She stated that she had concealed her condi- tion from her son because his own means were scanty. 1 A curious phase in tht recent indus : trial developments in China, is said to j be the increasing number of Japanese ! employed as instructors in engineering works and manufactures, and in various arsenals. It is now almost twenty years since Japan made a start in modem industries ; it commenced at the foundation and instituted schools and colleges for thc training of the natives in , the...

Picnic Cruise in the "Maggie," [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 January 1890

Picnic Cruise in the "Maggie," I was unfortunate enough to be one of tlie party that was got together for a j short cruise among the islands down our ! coast. I say " unfortunate " advisedly, i because as things turned out the pleasant ' features of the trip were knocked into a I very small compass by the overwhelming ! influences so inseparable from a sea voyage in a small boat in what the phraseology of the deep characterises as " dirty " weather. There were ten of us SASS the skipper, and we made a start in the steamer Maggie at between ! 12 and 1 o'clock on Friday last, 24th instant ; our intention being to shape a I course for Melville Island and make that the first port of call. Permit mc to observe right here that we were out for a picnic, and allow me also to remark that we had one from start to finish, and more than we bargained for. The passage clown occupied from six to seven hours, spun out by the opposing elements of head wiud and rolling sea-discom- forts which were re...

A New Process for Treating Ores. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 7 February 1890

A New Process for Treating Ores. A representative of the London Statist gives an account of an altogether new process for treating deposits con- taining gold hy a dry process, or, as the inventor terms them, Tierra S'eca (dry earth) machines. This new process does away entirely with the necessity for the use of mercury, and is applicable to the extraction of free gold from alluvial deposits. We were first shown a small machine weighing about 61b. Provided with one of these and a hammer the prospector would have all the appliances requisite for ascertaining as he journeyed through gold-bearing country whether or not the district he was traversing was rich enough to be worked ; the mecha- nism of the machine is a sort of inclined ladder, with fine meshed wire on one aide and silk on the other, somewhat after the style of the meshes through which millers pass varying grades of flour. A blast of air is driven up and down through the meshes of metal and silk, blowing off the light partic...

MINING MEMOS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 7 February 1890

MINING MEMOS. At the Port Darwin G. M. Co.'s battery at the Howley operations are pretty well suspended in consequence of the boggy nature of the roads interfering with the carriage of stone to the mill. Captain S. Remfrey, manager of the Flora Hell silver mine, took his depar- ture for south per s.s. Tsinan. We are informed that during his absence the general "surface" management of the mine will be in the hands of Mr. E. Carus Driffield, while the underground work will be conducted by Mr. W. Paul, who has been employed on the mine for some considerable time past. From Captain Remfrey we learn that as yet there is no intention on the part of the company to erect smelting machinery at the mine, and that on his return here he will continue the progressive work underground and open up the mine still more before advising thc erection of a smelting furnace. At a meeting held on Monday last at the Mining Exchauge it was resolved to alter the name of the Lady Alice Amalgamated Gold Mining...

New South Wales. Sydney, February 6. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 7 February 1890

New South Wales. Sydney, February 6. Extremely heavy weather has pre- vailed during the week along the whole of. the eastern coast, with heavy rains. The steamer Riverina, which went ashore last week between Melbourne and Sydney, is a total wreck. The crew have been brought on here. Fifteen hundred cases of brandy have been saved by the . lighters, which are still at work. The stock returns of the colony for the year 1889 shows an increase of nearly three million ia sheep. Glowing accounts come from a new goldfield at Cowper's Well, in the Riverina district, and the locality is being rushed. It is stated that the Argentine Republic is negotiating for supplies of Newcastle coal, and a revival in coal mining is consequently looked forward to. The race between Matterson and Kemp, for the sculling championship, is fixed to take place on the Parra- matta in April next. Over 113,486 ozs. of gold was coined at the Sydney Mint during last year. This is a remarkable increase on any previous ...

Victoria. Melbourne, February 6. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 7 February 1890

Victoria. Melbourne, February 6." Intense heat has prevailed through- out the week, and several cases of snnstroke are reported. Diptheria and typhoid fever con- tinues to spread. Several deaths have occurred, and hospital accom- modation is overtaxed. Hood, the well-known Melbourne barrister, has been raised to the Bench. A panic occurred among Mel- bourne holders of Broken Hill shares during the week, arising from an extra heavy placement of shares on the market and to the circulation of a report that Directors were selling. The panic was further strengthened by the fact that last week there was a much smaller yield of silver than usual, which was ascribed to the use of bad coke in the smelters. To allay the excitement the Directors yesterday proceeded to Adelaide and interviewed Patton, who states that the alarm is absurd, the mine being as good as ever it was. The Australian Federation Con- vention commences its deliberations to-morrow. AU the delegates have arrived.
