The Education Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 29 July 1874

The Education Act. Dr. Smith's letter to the Herald written in justification of the Education Act and also of its administrati0n by the Council, has doubtless enabled the public, assisted by Mr. GREENWOOD'S letter, to get a glimpse of the issue between the defenders of the present law and those desirous ro amend it. At the meeting held a week or two ago in favour of making the Public School system of the colony more available and efficient argu- ments were used, and facts brought out       which if followed by public agitation, will probably end sooner or later in a considera- ble change in the exsiting law. That Dr. SMITH should be anxious and in his anxiety,   should do his best to defend the Council against the charges preferred against it is only natural and right ; but, in doing this he has evidently lost sight of, or failed to give sufficient prominence to the main ques- tion at issue. To be sure the Council has been blamed f...

Terrific Thunderstorm. SEVERAL PERSONS KILLED.

A Thrilling Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 29 July 1874

A Thrilling Adventure. Mr. and Mrs. Cross were travelling with a light cart of their own (says the Cooktown Courier) and had camped one afternoon on the bank of the Mitchell. They were taking things comfortably, with ap- parently no one but themselves within " cooey," or a good deal further, when they were, alarmed by the dogs barking furiously, and charging into the bush. Scrutinizing the bush closely, they could perceive a number of blacks, scarcely 60 yards away, creeping towards their camp on all-fours, and carrying their boomer- angs in their hands. On being discovered they made no attempt to getaway, but crawled closer. Cross had only a single barrelled gun loaded with shot, and this he fired amongst them, but apparently with- out the effect of frightening the savages. They appeared rather to be frightened of the dogs, but still crawled slowly on. In this terrible strait the poor terror-stricken woman got into the dray, and wrote with a pencil in the book which she had by her,...

Conditional Purchasers and the [?] Department. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 29 July 1874

Conditional Purchasers and the Lands Department.               As an evidence of the loose manner in which business is sometimes transacted in the Lands Department the following letters, which have been kindly handed to us for publication, will be read with, interest, and be considered conclusive. Two men apply for a certain piece of land, one a Chinaman and the other a European, and the Land Agent declares, the latter to be the purchaser. The man goes away satisfied, but some short time afterwards he receives notice from the Lands Depart- ment that his purchase has been cancelled, and that the land has been given to the other applicant. This of course, surprises and angers the occupier of the land, and he at once seeks redress from the Govern- ment, placing the case in Mr. J. P. Abbott's hands for that purpose. The result of adopting this course of action will be seen on reading the following...

Local and General News. THE WEATHER- We have little change to report in the state of the weather this week. On the whole it has been fine and scarcely so cold as on the previous week, frosts being neither so frequent nor severe. A little rain felt on Saturday; and for some hours the sky was overcast. with clouds threatening a heavy downpour but towards   evening the weather cleared and fine weather again prevailed. The river has fallen sufficiently to allow teams to cross at the fords, though not without some danger as was proved a few days ago by the case of Macmennlin. Since Saturday after- noon the weather has been fine, bright, and calm; the temperature is mild.   ACCIDENT AT THE RIVER. - A few days ago a man, whose name we beleive was Macmennlin, was crossing the river with his team at ine if the fords but the current being too strong, his dray horses were swept some distance down stream, and narrowly       escape...
