QUEEN VICTORIA. IN THE HIGH LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 8 April 1868

'QUEEN VICTORIA I3ST THE HIGH LANDS. More than usual interest attaches to the Queen's new book — ' Leaves from the Journal of our Life iu the Highlands, from 1848 to 18G1' — and we accordingly place a sample of its contents before our readers. A few salient selections are thus strung together by the Home News : — There is a unity of interest preserved throughout the volume by the fact of its re lating almost entirely to the Queen's experi ence of life in the 'Highlands of Scotland. She learnt to regard the Highlands mid tho Highlanders with peculiar affection. The Queen was delighted with those people, and chose from among them her most trusted attendants. She says, in one part of her journal — ' All the Highlander are so amusing, and really pleasant and instructive to talk to, women as well as men, and the latter so gentlemanlike.' In another passage she observes — ' We were always in the habit of conversing with the Highlanders, with whom one comes so much in contact in the Highla...

W A L L S E N D . There is a report current here to the effect, that the Lord Bishop of Newcastle intends to remove tho Rev. Mr. Spicer Wood from amongst ui to East Muitland, which, I sincerely hope, may bo unfounded. Tho Rev. Mr. Wood is highly re spected by xihis community, and should he bo - taken from this station it would be a drawback to Wallaend.

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 11 April 1868

To the Editor ol the Newcastle Chronicle. Sin -It was with very great pain I read (and my feel ings aie shared by a great mwajP in this city) a leading article iu to-day's Pilot, reflsaphg on the management of the Industrial School. This institution has beun watched with interest by many who have felt aud mani fested some sympathy for the inmutys, us well us those who have the unwelcome task of presiding over this school. They aro inclined to think that had the writer tukon the trouble to visit the institution, it is most pro bable the truth could have been easily ascertained. It is deeply to bo regretted how much thu guo.l fueling of citizens has been injured by charges aguinat- publio men und institutions by those who, because all that U done does not bear their imprimis, aro ready to giro eur ami utterance to any charges, however vague und groundless.- -Yours, &c, A LOVER OF FAIR PLAY. Newcastle, 10th April, 1SU8.
