COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 7 August 1861

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. Fatal Assault on Ship Board. — A great deal of consternation was observable in the neighbour hood of iJotts' Warf,-. yesterday morning, caused by a report that a man had been murdered on board the Marcianus, then discharging at the wharf.

Holi.ways, Pills.— Bettor and worse'.— The varying temperatures of our winters are always accompanied by a large increase of pulmonary disease. To-day they arc better, to-morrow worse, which frequently occurs without fresh exposure to cold, This arises from tho irritable state of the air-tubes, and may be entirely prevented by rubbing Holloways, toothing Ointment on the back and front of the chest. It penetrates to tho lungs, allays their irribility, reduces the hurried respiration and regulates tho circulation both through the heart and lungs.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 7 August 1861

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Nt'iucastlf Chronicle. Sin— I am not naturally fund of ' rushing into print' (as some of your correspondents have it), yet 1 must on this occasion lift up my voice in loud protestation against the recurrence of so disgusting an effusion as that which appeared in your issue of Saturday last. The writer, who ever he maybe, is undoubtedly most lamentably deficient of one of the Greatest of Christian virtues, viz., common humanity. Under the guise of attempted 'poetry,' nnd the still move wretched attempt at an imitation of ' Mar. mion,' he not only grossly attacks some very respectable inhabitants of this city, but he absolutely has the h:irdi. hood and baseness to reflect upon the character of one who has been called away hy the imperative mandate of the King of Terrors. Such conduct is utterly unworthy of any person pretending to the possession of feelings of Rene, rosity, and can only lie denounced in the strongest terms, by all right-minded citi...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 7 August 1861

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. TwoPbe8ons Buried Alive. — A deplorable circumstance ocourred at some excavations in prbgress in Chatham on Saturday, by which two lives were sacrificed, both tho unfortunate per sons being buried alive, by the falling in of an immense body of chalk and earth upon them, at a spot at the foot of Chatham-hill, where work men have been employed for some time past in the removal of a mass of chalk from a small cliff which was in courso of destruction. It would appear that tho most culpable negligence was observed by the workmen engaged in excavating the earth, as instead of exercising duo caution in tho removal of the chalk from tho top of the cliff, they followed the directly opposite course, by excavating at tho base, and this negligent ar raugeiucnt led to tho unforiunate sacrifice of two lives. The chulk hill at the foot of the ascent known as Chatham-hill was purchased a short timo since by a person named Marsden, who at once commenced the removal of the cliff, wi...

MARRIAGE ENGAGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 7 August 1861

MARRIAGE ENGAGEMENTS. (From the Saturday Revitw.) There are two things which almost every one finds it difficult to do easily and with grace. One is for a man to announce orally that he iVgoing to be married, and the other is to congratulate him. 'Why the announce ment should cause embarrassment is obvious. However proud tho happy lover may feel in his heart, ho knows that by saying he is going to be married he at least exposes him self to tho criticism of friendly ouriosity. The friend to whom the announcement is mado has also many reasons for feeling a little nervous. Not.being foreigner, he oan not throw himself on his. friend's neck and liave a good blubber; and ho must confine liis congrhtulutions within the limits of En glish reserve. The surpriw and the oddity of the thing often empower every deeper feel ing for the moment, and even the sincerest and warmest friend has been known to re ceive the affecting intelligence with no other answer than one long peul of laughter.
