Fiji. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
Fiji. The annexation question is very favor- ably viewed by King Cakobau. From files of Fiji papers to hand we learn that a deputation liad waited on the king to congratulate him, and thank him for the course he liad taken with regard to an- nexation witli Great Britain. Cakobau assured the deputation that he believed annexation would be for the benefit of all in Fiji. At a public meeting held a reso- lution was passed asking the instant dis- missal of Mr. J. B. Thurston from office ; and another was passed to the effect that the form of government best suited to tlie community is a Crown colony, with a legislative assembly elected by the white settlers, and an executive composed of the hoads of departments, gentlemen sent from home-, and as many nativo chiefs as the governor may think necessary to pro- tect native interests fully. Among other recommendations submitled to and ap- proved by the king, is a reduction of one lifth from all salaries over £200 per annum, drawn by European...
Badman v. Caldwell. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
Badman v. Caldwell TO THE EDITOR. Sir-In the case of Badman against Caldwell -will you allow me to make an explanation, and to stato certain facts omitted at the trial, but which will be brou Jit out in the appeal. Jt was proved that I liad given specific instruc- tions to the well-known and experienced butcher, Mr. Manson, who was in no way interested in the profits, to sell nothing in any way doubtful or not pro- perly bled. I did this because I saw some of tlie sheep I thought too poor for meat. It was proved that the four car- casses of mutton, on which the prosecu- tion rested, were not sold nor were they offered for sale, but remained hanging where they had their skins taken oft' late the night before by a stranger, the butcher being unwell. It was not, how- ever, proved -as it might have been had witnesses been called for the defence, which was not done simply because we rested too implicitly on the rectitude of the case-that Mr. M°nson had stated to Mr. Baker, before Mr. Bad...
The Schooner Black Hawk. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
The Schooner Black Hawk. The Brisbane Courier reports that the Jeddah, on her voyage down from Hong- kong, approached Bowen Island, Queens- land, on the 23rd April. As the vessel neared the place those on board were sur- prised by the sudden appearance of rockets, followed by brilliant blue lights ; and it was at once concluded that this beautiful though somewhat startling ex- hibition portended some ship in want of assistance. The steamer was accordingly stopped, and shortly afterwards a boat, with a light and several men, came along- side. The boat belonged to the schooner Black Hawk, of Melbourne, 4.Í tons register, which had left Port Darwin on the lOtlx March for the Endeavor, with upwards of 60 souls on board, then 44 days out, and were said to be literally starving. Eight of their number, named Robert Cameron, Patrick Lynch, W. Bolton, Matthew Richie, William Symons, Henry Symons, Henry Walker, and Frank (a Belgian) liad landed on Bird Point on the 22nd April, in the hope of ...
The Mining Board. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
The Mining Board. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I see by your last week's paper that Mr. W. S. Mather has taken exception to some grammatical error in a letter wtitten by me the week previous. Mr. Mather must bear in mind that I have not had so much experience as himself in the reporting line, and having left school some time ago, I hope I may be excused for making a mistake. What I wanted to express in the letter re- ferred to was that the claims pro- posed to be granted to prospectors were too large, and that the size of claims has been the principal cause of complaint since I have been in the Territory, which has been a trifle longer than Mr. Mather, I think. Whether the new rules have been made by the Mining Board or the Board of Trade does not alter my opinion on the subject. If Mr. Mather will kindly point out any more errors I may have committed I shall teel exceeding obliged to him. I am, Sir, &c. OBSERVER. Yam Urcck, July 4th, 1874.
Palmerston District Council. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
Palmerston District Council. On Monday last, July 13, the town ot Palmerston was called upon, for the first time, to exercise its electoral privileges. Three Councillors and two Auditors had to be chosen by the ratepayers in the place of three who had retired, and for this purpose Barclay's Room had been set aside as a polling-place, where at 9 o'clock the Returning Officer was in readiness to give out voting-papers, and where the ballot-box in all its glory was waiting to receive the said papers when duly marked by the voters. At the ap- pointed hour the voting began, and though there was not a great rush to the poll j and though there was no galloping to and fro of horses, with cabs and other vehicles, yet there was a mild little flutter of excitement every now and then, and several small boys who were waiting about the door watched this first Palmerston election with no slight degree of interest. Indeed, they showed something like enthusiasm when about the middle of the day a pla...
LAW COURTS. POLICE COURT—PALMERSTON. TUESDAY, July 14. (Before Mr. E. W. Price, S.M.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
LAW COURTS. POLICE COURT-PALMERSTON. Tuesday, July 14. fBefore Mr. E. W, Price, S.M.) Robert Caldwell appeared to the information of Sergeant Badman, charged with selling unwholesome me^t, at Palmerston, on the 13th July. The defendant, who was repre- sented by Mr. Rudall, pleaded not guilty. Robert Henry, who was called by Sergeant Badman, said he was in Mr. Caldwells employ. Was acting as shepherd on the 12th, when he took out a number of sheep-about 150. He took them out from the town, and he left some behind because they were too weak to travel. Left them at various places; and returned to the yard with the flock. Before leaving the weak sheep behind he bled them so as to kill them. After- wards went back with Michael Mallon and took a dray for the dead sheep. Brought in from six to ten in the ?dray. They were scattered about in different places, where he had killed them as they got weak. In bringing in the carcasses delivered them tj the butcher, Mr. Manson, at his shop. Left t...
Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
Mining Matters. We have been favored with the use of a letter from a gentleman in the country, whose experience on the reefs is, perhaps, greater than that of any other person in the Northern Territory, and whose judg- ment -is generally considered sound in mining matters. He writes from Union Reef, under date July 4th, and says : " But little work has been done as yet beyond erecting quarters and getting up provisions, and that has only been done in claims where titles are undisputed. " I may mention Nos. i and 2 Winn's, Lady Alice, and 3 and 4 north, Union, and 7 south. The surface prospect in these claims was very good, and has vastly improved in opening the reef up at a little depth. If'other claims shape as well when opened, in time a large quan- tity of gold will be raised on the reef. The great need is a public crusher, and then owners will be able to work nearly all the claims. But without one, at the present labor basis, and the high price given to obtain it, united with th...

Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 17 July 1874
Ijtqtluip üfcrntorj Simes. Palmerston : Friday, July 17,1874. The unfortunate Northern Territory is being made the scape-goat for everybody's blunders. It is not only a "white elephant" and a "horse leech," but it also turns out to be a "maelstrom," which has swallowed up enormous sums of money belong- ing" to the poor people of South Aus- tralia. The Register, each year, just as the Estimates are coming on in Parliament, very kindly advances this "maelstrom," and the Treasurer of the day generally falls into it. We read in that newspaper's issue of May 20, that mining speculators entered into engagements to the extent of nearly half-a-million with the Northern Territory during the mania which recently existed j "while," says the writer, "it has actually flung into that insatiable maelstrom-a sum ex- ceeding a quarter of a million." Thus the Northern Territory is, at one .troke of the pen, credited with a quar ter of a million, which we are sup- posed to have insatiabty swallowed up...

Post-Offlce. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-The letters brought by the steamer Gothenburg were delivered on the 27th of last May, or a few days afterwards. This is the month of July, and only on the 13th inst. did your humble servant receive a letter enclosing a bill of lading from an Adelaide firm, which was of some import. I consider, and perh ips many of your readers would desire, a little explanation as to this delay; and I am certain Mr. Little will see to it. When I was informed that the cause of my letter not being delivered was it went to Southport; but there is no Southport stamp on the letter. I am, Sir, Sec, PATK. HYLAND. N.T. Hotel, July 17, 1874.

Up-Countiy Jottings. (From our own Correspondent.) Sandy Creek, July 12» The talk here is that no matter what the Post-Office promise that promise is sure to miscarry. There is an instance. A short time ago we received an intimation that when the new contract commenced the mail would be left with Mr. Miller, at Yam Creek east, and Mr. Miller would deliver it at Sandy Creek twice a week. That was the promise. Now what is the performance ? The mail, it is true, calls at Yam Creek, but instead of being delivered at Sandy Creek, it is taken on to the Shackle as usual, and the first person who calls gets all the letters and papers and brings them to Sandy Creek, and leaves them with some- body. Folks go into the Shackle and ask for their letters and papers, and are told they have been taken out to Sandy Creek, and off they trudge back again, but only to be disap Eointed again, as nobody seems to now who has got them, and they have to go through the diggings until they find them.
