Tub Want op a Punt for. Newcastle.— The existence of n properly organised ferry between Newcastle and Stockton, for the conveyance of passengers and goods in pntticuUr, «t reasonable rates, aud a.t regular intervals throughout thu day, has now become a great desideratum. Tlie inevoasinK trafllu between the city and the opposite shore baa, in fact, rendered the means of transit ixuccd ii\Kly dlUlcult ami inconvenient ; and when it is retnem bcrad that this boon is about to be grunted shortly at Ray mond Terrace and Hexham, we consider that the claims uf I Newcastle in this rcspvot should not be ovurloukcd. j

STOCKTON. ' (From the S.M.Herald's Correspondent.) On Saturday afternoon, I paid a visit to Stockton, other wise known as the North Shore, situate opposite New. castle, and to which ferry boats ply at intervals during the day. _ We landed near Mr. Scott's slip, and were agreeably surprised to find the general activity prevailing. Ship wrights, carpenters, blacksmiths, and labourers, all busily employed, gave to the place quite a businesslike appear ance. Mr. Scolt kindly took us over the slip, engine-house, and workshops, pointing out everything of interest and the capabilities of the slip— showing the importance of such worlds in a port like Newcastle, frequented by so many fine vessels, arwLnecrssarily requiring extensive repairs. As an instance of this I may mention that the slip was open on the 2nd March, 180!), and was first occupied by the brig Triton, sniee which time no less a nnmber than fifty-six vessels, from lf)0 up to 700 tons register, have received re pairs on this sl...

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE LAST OF THE "BARDS OF NEWCASTLE." [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 20 July 1861

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE LAST OF THE 'BARDS OF NEWCASTLE.' Conceited rhymester — 'genius bright' — Who never ' shines in others' light,' ? But over-rates his own ; Self- constituted critic bold, Such blunted satire — pointless, old, Could come from you alone. And so you thought you'd found a flaw . In lines you never saw before, But similar no doutt ; When your opinions you essay, Let Lindlcy Murray guide the way, Or 'grabs' will ' bowl you out..' But stay, I'm rather prcss'd for time— I'll cease this castigating rhyme, Or else I would protect My compeers— but to you I'd say, When next you dream you'll take the sway, Be sure you're quite correct. Newcastle, July 12, ISfil. D. F. TO D. 1\ Wanted a hand to join your own, To walk the path of life ; In other words more plain 'tis shown, You want a loving wife.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Dreadful Storv. — During the drilling ?of an oil mill at Tidione, Pennsylvania, re cently, a sudden rush of oil, at the rate of 70 barrels an hour, took placo, the stream ascending 4 1 foot abovo the surface of the ground. Abpve this mass of oil the gas or ?benzine rose in a cloud, for 50 or GO feet. AH the fires in the neighbourhood were im mediately extinguished, excepting one 409 yards distance. The fire from this ignited the floating gas, and in a moment the whole air was in roaring flames. As soon as the gas took fire, the head of the-, jet of oil was in a furious blaze, and falling like water, from a fountain over a space 100 feet in diameter, each drop of oil came dowu a blazing globe of boiling oil. Instantly the ground was in a flume, constantly iucroased and augmented by the falling oil. At once a scene of in describable horror took place. Scores were thrown flat, and for a distance of 20 feet, and numbers horribly burnt, rushing blazing from the hell oi ...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 24 July 1861

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. The High Price of Butchers' Meat. — It has been the subject of general complaint for some time past, that the butchers are charging a very high retail price for meat, especially beef, compared to the wholesale quotations, and the price that fat stock are selling at in the yards. On looking over the different stock reports we find that good average cattle arc worth from £2 15s. to £3 10s. a head, and prime heavy picked yards from £4 10s. to £5. At this rate the retail price of 3d. per lb. appears to be out of all proportion. 2d. per lb. has been sug gested as a price that would leave the butcher a very handsome profit, independently of the hide and loose fat, which of itself is no mean perquisite. Cupboard Love. — The following is too good a joke to. miss appearing in print. Although it did nut actually occur within the prccints of this parish yet it did take place within a hundred miles of it, and we can vouch for its b.ing true Two men, in the employ of one of th...
