New Guinea and the Louisiade Archipelago. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 26 June 1874

New Guinea and the Louisiade Archipelago. Our hydrographie knowledge of the south-east and north-west coast of Papua, or New Guinea (or Dou dea, as the natives term it), and of the adjacent islands of the Louisiade Archipelago, has remained much in the state of obscurity left by Captain Blackwood after his partial survey in 1845 and '846. The subsequent ex- plorations of Captain Yule and Cap- tain Owen Stanley, and the still more recent discoveries of Captain Moresby and of the officers of the Vettor Pisani, though forming an exceed- ingly valuable addition to our geo- graphical knowledge, do not throw much light upon the condition of the islands. And though the eastern coast of New Guinea and the ap- proaches to Torres Straits have been explored by them sufficiently for the safety of passing vessels, yet, with the exception of some few points and islands where the vessels of the sur- vey touched at, and where they found the natives almost uniformly hostile, very little is at prsecn...

Morning Star Company. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 26 June 1874

Morning Star Company. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Seeing a report in your paper of a meeting of that precious little swindle, " The Morning Star Com- pany," I would feel much obliged, as a shareholder, by your granting space in your columns for a few re- marks I wish to make on the sub- ject. When the three tons of stone were sent to Mr. Newman's battery for a trial crushing, I saw it there before it was crushed, and from what I could make of it I could compare it to nothing else but a heap of mullock and casing, in which a few small pieces of quartz had got accidentally mixed, and when it was being crushed, I am informed by the stam- per feeder (whose name I can give if required), that Mr. Seale, the mana- ger, came on the platform and asked him if there was any quicksilver in the boxes, as he wanted to put in a few specimens, which he did, taking them from a bag or purse which he took out of his pocket. Now, we all know that Mr. Seale had no right to meddle with the boxes in any way, as th...

Hospital Subscriptions. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 26 June 1874

Hospital Subscriptions. TO TUE EDITOR. Sir-Your advertising columns contained a list of subscribers' names who have given money to the Pal- merston Hospital ; but I do not see my own name amongst them, although I gave a subscription to Mr. Whyte when he was Secretary. I have heard several other persons make the same remark, and should like to know the reason. I am, Sir, &c, SUBSCRIBER. [Our correspondent will see by the advertisement that Mr. Whyte, the first Secretary, instead of handing in a list of subscribers' names to the Treasurer, only handed in a lump sum of money amounting to £51 18s. There were, no doubt many subscri- bers to that amount, whose names are not on the published list, simply because they were never sent in to the Treasurer.-ED.]

Prospecting Areas. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 26 June 1874

Prospecting Areas. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-In your last issue " Observer," who is evidently a very superficial observer, says that the Mining Board have been so niggard in their allow- ance to prospectors that "a quartz prospector is allowed " only " a mile square to search for a reef." That must be absurd. I always understood that a prospector had permission to prospect throughout the Territory for reefs, with the exception of a few areas which are protected by Execu- tive contingency law. Perhaps " Observer " means some- thing he does not express, but I can assure him that although the report ©f the first meeting of the Mining Board did not appear, I was present at the sitting, and I do not believe that the Board did anything which they cannot very satisfactorily explain to the mining population, though per- haps that explanation may not be so satisfactory to those who do not un- derstand what it is to prospect in this Territory. I am. Sir. &c.. W. S. MATHER. Barclay's Rooms, P...

Several applications were made to -withdraw applications for lease, the reason assigned being- that the appli- cants could not comply with the requirements of the Act, viz., supply a survey plan within the prescribed limit of S;0 days. The requests were allowed -, the Commissioners consider- ing that upon re-application the usual fees should be paid. Mr. W. McMinn called attention to the want of trig points near Union Reef, where leases were now being surveyed. The President replied that he would instruct the Senior Surveyor in the matter, with a view to meet the difficulty as early as possible.
