New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898

New Guinea. ,Ml*. Baldwin, a passenger from New Guinea by tiie John Williams, has been giving an account of tbat country. Chief amongst the items of interest is, of course, the gold rush, of which Mr. Baldwin says that there were vry few diggers at Port Moresby, most of them having gone to the Mambare River, where it has been stated as much as half an ounce to the dish was being washed. This statement, Mr. Baldwin considers, is exaggerated, and should be taken with a good deal of salt. It is cxpected that a rush will ensue to the cast end of New Guinea, but just now the rainy season has set in, and pros pectors will find the utmost difficulty in-getting inland, as all the rivers are in high flood. About March is the time to make Samarai for fitting out. Speak ing of the cultivation and prospects for settlers, Mr. Baldwin thought that eventually the country will support a large population. The cultivation of rubber, though not started yet, will be found profitable, the native rubber ...
