BURWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 30 May 1874
BURWOOD. T? wER is little of importance to chronicle this week, the routine of things presenting a dull appearance as usual. Notwithstsnding the threatening aspect of the weather yesterday morning, by noon the neighbourhood seemed to all appearances deserted, most of the people making their way to the Asylum Grounds, where, accord ing to the programme, they would be treated to a good day's amusement. The races also received a fair share of patronago from this quarter. The Improvement Sooiety held its usual meeting last Thursday evening. The attend alnce was very poor, compared with former occasions. The president gave two instruo-. tive lessons, one on grammar the other on drawing, which were listened to with marked attention. All that the society requires is a little pecuniary aid; it possesses the oener and by a slight help it would become something to th ugeen4 the district. The debate proposed for next meetilngis, which of the two discoveries, that of gold or coal, has tended th...

SHINDY IN THE TEAPOT. (To the Editor of the Miners' Advocate) [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 30 May 1874
g'lt '~"sHfllDY--'I'T~THE. TEAPOT. '* - S (To the lAlitor of tlhe .Ifinqrs' Advocate) :. Sir,--There appeared (by special favour we believe) in t~e.,NewcatleC Pilot, of the 13th inst., an official piofest from tha " Day Dawn Division" of the Sons of Temperance, anent the libcllous utterances -of a certain J.P;, from his position on the bench, against the charactgr of their order. "The epistle in quiestion is a cold watery offusion made up of mild common place ingredients, without a dash of pungency inl it, in order to insure its insertion in the iirst place, and in the second to avoid thle pos sible risk .of libelling the libeller. So goes the gossip, Anyhow, the worthy scribe of the "Day Dawn," or " Peep o' Day Boys" Division ought to have been wider awake than to suppose that such a '"mealymouthed" production would have any effect as a castigation upon the dilinquent to whom it was applied. They might as well have made the abortive attempt to'probo the hide of a rhinoceros with a ...
(To the Editor of the Miners' Advocate.) [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 30 May 1874
S(To. t, e Eitor of the. 'inera' . Advocate"). 1? Srn,-I have often been grieved at the utter wannt of sympathy shown to old miners by .their younger fellow workmen. When in the. pit a young man would not consider. it beneath his dignity'if hoe?hli! the opportunity to take an old man's skip from him instead of protecting him, which is his duty; and if our miners have a situation at their disposal, such s cheeck-weighman, almost without exception young men get it, although there are old men working in the pit, whoso gray hairs and hollow cough too plainly tell that they are physically incapable of performing a day's work, such as is required of miners, but their. families have to be provided for, and 'these pooe fellows may be seen morning after morming, whilst wonding their way to their work, takiing scverel. rests on the road for want of breath, and yet they have all the qualifications for being check-weighi man, but their being old is a sufficient reason why the young man should h...
