NORTHERN MAIL NEWS. OUR usual files of northern papers are to hand for the week ending Saturday last. &nbsp; COOKTOWN AND THE PALMER. The only gold-fields' news in the Palmer Chronicle is the departure, on the 24th January, of the escort for Cooktown with 8255 oz. gold. &nbsp; The parcel was delivered at its destination on &nbsp; the 31st. The same paper says that a &nbsp; memorial is being handed around for signature, in support of Mr. James Towey's claim for &nbsp; Government compensation for the losses he &nbsp; sustained through the murder and robbery of &nbsp; his storekeeper, Thomas Green, at Doughboy Creek, and the subsequent burning down of &nbsp; his premises, by Chinese. The loss of property is estimated at the minimum sum of £595, an amount which, from our personal knowledge &nbsp; of his stock at that time, is considerably below its actual value. Mr. Towey is one of the earliest pioneers on the Palme...

Ashby's (a Canterbury bowler) average was C2 balls, 2 runs, 13 maidens, 5 wickets.
AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 9 February 1878
/AQUATICS> This will jfe a rather eventful day on the Fitzroy, heine tho date of tho first boat race between members of the Fitzroy Bowing Club. Tho race starts, I believe, at (ive o'clock, from Alligator Creek, and finishes near the Boat House, thc distance being about a mile and a-half. Arrangements have been made hythe Committee to ensure the affair going off successfully, and several well-known gentle- men have consented to act officially. So much interest hos liecn evinced in thc match of late that I quite expect to sec the river bank thronged with eager spectators. Opinions differ as to tho respective merits of the crews, but I fancy thc Bachelors show too much form for their opponents, and although thc finish is expcctcdiMht very close, I fully oxpect to see tile lighwÄcrew first past #|ie flag-boat.
