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

PUBLIC WORKS. The lighthouse at Port Stephens is fast approaching com pletion, and will probably be brought into use within two months from this time. The cases containing the lighting apparatus have arrived from London in the Cairngorm within the last few days. The light will be a revolviug one, of the catophic ordor. third class, showing alternately a red and white flash. There are twelve strong silver-plated polished reflectors, eacn twenty-four inches in diameter, and ten inches in depth, and a patent lamp with brass burners, for burning vegetable oil. The apparatus was manufactured to order, by Messrs. Wilkins and Co., of Long Acre. The most extensive of the works in progress under the Engineer for Harbours; is the public wharf at Newcastle. That structure is now upwards of eight hundred feet in length, exclusive of the contract for its extension eastward four hundred feet, now being carried on by Mr. Ross. Two further contracts have been taken for the extension of the wharf tw...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. (From the Herald and Empire.) X.AM11IXG 1'l.AT. Tuesday, 10 p.m., via Vass.— The casualties of Sunda; night's affray are one man killed, and two severely wounded, but doiiic well to-day. Threo troopers wounded, but not badly. Yesterday a 'roll-up' was expected at about four p.m., to liberate the three prisoners ; but on my visiting the camp nbpnt that time, I found it deserted. All the pri soners— rioters and felons— seemed to have been let go on their pnrole. No disturbance took pine*, however, last night. The Court-house was burnt to the ground at about three o'clock this morning. The reported incendiary was a lunatic, who has since acknowledged liiscuilt. The banks are closed, nnd the clerks, with the cash, Hooks, etc., have also vanished. A man named William Luptou was killed by a shot fired from the direction of the Camp. He was buried to-day, a volley being fired over His grave by the diggers. Kour places were threatened, and the proprietor of the Miner, news...

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

BUJtRANGONG. Wo understand the authorities lately nt Burrnn gong are of opinion that there were not many bonrt fide diggers engaged in the lawless acts of Sunday last, mid that the mob consist d chiefly of persons who have no fixed occupation. It is surmised that very many of tho rioters have been fatally wounded, as they were several times charged with great spirit and determination, and were incessantly llred upon for upwni'ils of twenty minu'es by the foot police. About 1500 diggers quitted the neighbourhood of the scene of action on Sunday evening last and took to the ranges, in order to avoid being compelled to take part in the illegal movement. Had t!i«y re mained, the probability is they would have been forced to join the mob. Two of the troopers en gaged in suppressing tho riot on Sunday wore present at the outbreak which occurred at Ballarat some years ago. They describe the latter affair as nothing in comparison to the former It is stated that the ground between the main c...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 24 July 1861

Thk contested election for the Lower Hunter has been decided in the return of Lieutenant JSiidleir over Mr. Argent by a majority of 189 votes. The electors tufwed oitt to the number of 199, and the proceedings were conducted just as they should be — with an order and decorum that did credit to all concerned — and the point which we have more than once urged has been attained — the people of the district have chosen one of themselves to re present them iu the Parliament of New South Wales. We cannot sec that Mr. Cowpcr's power in the House will be altered by his election one way or the other; and so far the political balance is left nntouched. We have another election, however, to come off on the r-th of August, in consequence of Mr. Blake having been appointed one of the district judges, and it remains to be seen whether the men of West Maitlaud — for with them it lies— will go to Sydney for a member, or choose one of themselves to represent them. They can have no excuse for doing s...

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

WOLLOMBI. July 15 — The great want of a postal route from Wollombi to Fordwich has induced the inhabitants of the last-mentioned town and its environs to for ward a memorial to the Postmaster General on the subject. It has been numerously signed, and no doubt the boon will be granted by the authorities, as, bv the present postal arrangements, correspond ence to or front the new town recently sold, and now building on, has to pass through Singleton and Mait land, a circuitous route, which, by the route being continued from Fordwich, twenty miles would avert, and save a delay of a week's intermission. I hear of cuses in the district of cattle dying from some cause as yet unexplained. It cann't be for want of pasturage, as that is plentiful ; fat beasts become reduced to nothing, and die by exhaustion. Only a few days since some cuttle were found in this condition. The ploughing in this district continues slowly to progress. The damage caused by the flo d has not yet been overcome, not...
