To the Editor of the Newcastle Chroncle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 26 January 1861

To the Editor of Hie Newcastle Chronicle. Sir — I was anxiously waiting this morning to see your boy come with my paper, for in it I was in great hopei of seeing something of public importance. But, oh, Mr. Editor, what a great surprise I pot, and no wonder, in sin-h a country as this, where, I thonghtMhcre were no flunk.-vs. I thought when I left the old c:iu(krv that L had loft all thes.: creatures behind me, instead of wfo,h:h I see sn-n^ of them have found their w.iy here. No dujibt, if any jib is to be had from the (ioverument officials, that ths said flunkey deserves it, and, 1 hope, ho may meet with his de sarts. Hut the public may not know ivh.it stamp of a man the flunkey is, but I can tell them he is one that does all the dirty work that is ty be done for his employers or those he wishes to be his employers. And I am of opinion, Mr. Hditor, that your ' Mr. Ventilator' has, instead of ventila tion, tried his hand at vindi.ittion, and mads a good job of it too for the Govern...

THE LAW OF LIBEL LIBELLOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 26 January 1861

THE LAW OF LIBEL LIBELLOUS. The actual law of libel is one of the mast unwholesome of all the laws by which soiiety is tormented. The law of libel regards, solely, tbe interests of the individual, entirely ignoring .regard for the interests of the common weal. Everyone is forbidden to blame anyone— howtver justly, ? even though it should be for the goon of all. While every one is permitted to praise anyone— however unjustly— even although it should be for the evil of all. October 80, 1859. Colone) H. Clinton. The uirilr.rn of these letters, of course, are alone respon sible for the sentiments 'or fqU\ contained in them.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. Mt«s Ironside.— It will be remembered that Dr. Lang, during the last session of parliament, proposed that a sum of money should be voted to this lady, to enable her to prosecute her studies as an artist in Italy, as a testimonial of her high attainments in the arts. Miss Ironside, it appears, is angry at the doctor's interference,, and has written her opinion in rather strong language. She says, addressing a member of her family : — ' I received a letter yes terday from Dr. Lang, informing me of a movement brought by him before the council to allow me a yearly -uni of money from the public treasury of the country. . I cannot express to you how annoyed I feel, and how very displeased I am that Dr. Lang should have done so after my having been for so long a time here at my own, or rather mama's, means, and especially now that I am about to have my fame here, that this should have been brought before peo ple who can understand nothing at all about art as we do here, ...

VENTILATION OF COAL MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

VENTILATION OP COIL MINES. As the question of the ventilation of the coal mines of the district is about to come befure the House, it may not be amiss from time to 'time to supply such data, derived from various sources, as may lend to a knowledge of the requirements of the case, according to the opinion of those best qualified to form nn opinion from their nractical acauaintance with nnriev. ground operations. The following facts may be con sidered indisputable, and the authorities from which they are derived as above suspicion : — All mines, whether they evolve noxious gases or not, require ventilation ; those which emit them most freely demanding that their ventilation should be most active. Where there is no emission of gases, the arr, if stagnant, will soon become. vitiated and unfit for inspiration from Beveral causes, among winch may be numbered tlie respira tion of tho workmen, the combustion of the lights, the deflagration of gunpnw.lcr, and the greater or less decnm positi...
