MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 July 1861

MISCELLANEOUS. The Elephant Hunters afCcijlon.— The ability ovinpad.by' theso mon in tracing' elephants through tho wooik has almo.it the certainty of instinct; and hence their services are ongerly sought by the European sportsmen who go into the countrv in scarab of came. So keen is their glance, that almost at the top of their speed, like hounds running ' breast high,' they will follow the course of an elephant over glades covered with stunted grass where the oye of a stranger would fuil to discover a trace of its passago, and on through forosts strewn with dry leaves, where it seems impossible to porcoivo a footstep. Here they nro guided by a bent or broken twig, or by a leaf droppod from tho ani mal's mouth, ou whioh they can detect tho pressure of a tooth. If nt fault, thoy fetch a circuit like a setter, till lighting on some fresh marks, they go ahead again with renewed vigour. So delicate is the sense of smell in tho elephant, and so indispensable is it to go against tho wind...

An Extraordinary Murder. — The Al giers journals relate an extraordinary crime : — A soldier of the 58th regiment, in garrison at Guelina, was, a few days past, sent to the lock-up of the barracks, but at night he con trived to get out, and proceeded straight to a room in which a number of his comrades were sleeping. There he took a loaded musket, and applying the muzzle close to the head of one of them, shot him dead. He then re turned to the lock-up, and told some soldiers who were there that he had just ' settled the account' of a comrade. Strange to say the report of the musket was not heard by the men sleeping in the room with the victim. The man admitted that it was lie who had put the other to death, but his reason he would not state. — Ibid. Death op a Centenarian. — The demise of the Hon. Mrs. Jane Annesley, long resi dent in Guernsey, took place on the 25th of April last. She had attained the great age of 102 years. Death was the result of acci dent, the venerable lady hav...

THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. A LAY AFTER ' MARMION.' dedicated to cressy. Canto First. THE MEETING. Slow sunk the sun the hills behind, And gently breathed the western wind ; Tlie scene around was quiet and still, Like that beside the murmuring; rill, When Nature's liush'd to sleep. No sound disturb'd the holy calm, Except the tnurmcr of the deep ; And that so gently, 'twas like balm Upon the soul when wrapt in sleep ; Sometimes 'twas heard in echoes loud, And the rippling ceas'd to sound ; Again faint echo brings the noise, As from the rocks the waves rebound. The beauteous tints of evening bright — Tlie harbingers of coming night, — Shone out so lovely in the west, As if wooing Nature to her rest ; They reflected were the waves upon, As from the sky to earth they shoue, That one would think a sky of gold, A scene of glory did unfold, Too bright for mortal ken. But while the gazer, wit'i delight, Looks on the gorgeous robes of night, Those colours fade, the sky looks grave, ...

THE FLOOD IN THE tklJ-TEIL (From the Maitland Mtrcikv, My 30.) In our last issue we reported we progress of the flood to the hour (on Friday evening) Tt which we went to press (earlier than usual in consequence of the exigencies of t!ie time.)

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 July 1861

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the NeutciutU Chronicle. Sir — As the Governor's visit to the Hunter is an epoch in the history of the district, that ought to be long kept in remembrance. I forward you some lines which I have written about it. I am aware that many will be apt to sneer at them, and say that they are deficient of that lofty ideality which should cha racterise poetry. That I admit. According to Shaksoeare — ' The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven, And as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, The poet's pen turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing, A local habitation and a name.' But as I cannot lay any claims to be a poet, or a 'poet's brother,' and as my subject is earthly things, and such a class of things as are not capable of being elevated to any great height, I hope your readers will overlook the want, and blame the sub ject as well as the writer. No doubt, some of your correspondi...

Newcastle District Court.— In accordance with the legal programme, the district court is to be opened here to-morrow. Our late highly-esteemed judge — Owen, esquire, will be replaced on this occasion by — Purefoy, esquire, late commissioner of insolvent courts. There are a considerable number of cases on the paper, including four for a jury. VVe regret for the credit of the city, that the court-house is in such a dilapidated state. Surely our bench of magistrates, by a proper representa tion, might have this contemptible cause of complaint rec tified. The Honorable John Robertson.— We notice that John Robertson, esquire, passed through this city yesterday, en route for Sydney, to resume his many and weighty responsibilities, and which are of no mean charac ter at this present moment. He 's, however, a man equal to great emergencies, and we doubt not his ability any more than we fear his great courage to steer the state ship through the stormy gloom that darkens at present the poli t...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Thk North Staffordshihe Collier's Struck. — The remaining turn-outs at Burs lem and the neighbourhood have determined to resume work at the reduction. They feel themselves unable to prolong a struggle they have now no funds to maintain. The Kids grove colliers are still out, and intend to re main out until the masters accede to their terms. The majority of the colliers who turned out last week at Earl Granville's col lieries, Hanley, have left the town for Wales, Lancashire, and other places, where they ex pect to obtain better wages, and it is said that many others will follow. With regard to those who. remain behind, there appears to be a determination among them to muin tnin their present position.

GENERAL MINING ASSOCIATION. A general meeting of tho Coal Mining As sociation was held in London last week, Mr. Nicholas Wood in the chair. The first sub ject discussed was the London Coal and Wine Duties Bill. The Chairman said he sup posed they would have but little chance of doing anything in direct opposition to the bill. The only thing they could do was to introduce such amendments us would make it as practicable as possible to the coalowner. , — Mr. Philipson said that they would have little chance of succeeding if they attempted a direct opposition. With respect to the drawback, what they wanted was that it should be the same amount as tho tax. At present they kept back Id. per ton for the Coal Exchange. Tho Government wanted the tax to pny for the embankment of the Thames, and the Mining Association were advised that they were not strong enough to resist the measure.
