WOMAN'S HEAKT.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
GENERAL NEWS. Tho Provincial Council o£ Canterbury has voted . % sum of £7600 for tho put-poaus of immigration for tho present year. It is rumoured in Mudgee, that a well-known tradesman there is a Fenian sympathizer. Tho . gontlcmun in question has indignantly repudi ated the charge. Among the passengers by the Highflyer, which sailed for England from Melbourne on Sunday, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; was the well-known artist, Mr. G. A. Appleton, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; formerly of Sydney. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A. glance , at tho census returns of the several ? provinces of Now Zealand shows tho discourag ing fuct, that tho population of tho colony during tho pust three years has boon almost stationary.

A GENEROUS GIFT AND NOBLE EXAMPLE.— Mr. T Laidlaw, having learned that the congregation of St. Clement's Church (Anglican) Yass, were desirous to discontinue the burying of bodies in the graveyard sur- rounding the church, presented to the congregation over four acres of land adjoining the Presbyterian cemetery, which also was given by Mr. Laidlaw to the latter deno- mination. The land (says the Courier) is most suitable for the purpose, is contiguous to the town, and close to the cemetery used by the Roman Catholics and persons of the Jewish persuasion. The churchwardens of St. Clement's intend to have the ground fenced in as spee- dily as possible ; and as soon afterwards as his Lordship the Bishop of Goulhurn can visit Yass to consecrate the cemetery, it will be opened tor the purposes of &nbsp; burial. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29, 1868. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
NEWCASTLE BOROUGH COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
NEWCASTLE BOROUGH COUNCIL. The Council met, pursuant to adjournment, on Monday afternoon, at four o'clock. Present — The Mayor, in the chair, and Aldermen Sparke, Chapman, Bolton, Christie, and Stokes. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. &nbsp; POSTPONED TENDERS. — The Mayor, before the &nbsp; correspondence was read, wished to make a brief statement in reference to the tenders that were postponed from the last meeting of the Council. &nbsp; He had spoken to Mr. Russell with regard to his tender for the formation of a portion of Blane-street, and the explanation he gave was satisfactory, viz., that "yard" in his tender, he meant cubic yard. His tender being the lowest was therefore accepted. With respect to the tenders for the construction of culverts, the Surveyor had reported upon the tenders to the following effect. One tender came to £159 for the job, the other to £165, ane Mr. Welham's was £100. He had spoken to Mr. Welham on the...
MARKET RESERVE AND GAS COM. MITTEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
MARKET RESERVE AND GAS COM- MITTEES. Later in the evening (seven o'clock), the Coun- cil sat as a Committee of the Whole, to consider the questions of lighting the town with gas, and the reclamation and appropriation of the Market- square Reserve. There were present — Alder- men Christie, Bolton, Rodgers, Chapman, Sparke, and the Mayor. THE GAS QUESTION.—Ald. Chapman in re- &nbsp; &nbsp; opening the subject of lighting the streets with gas, remarked that, so far as he was aware, no doubt existed in the minds of any of the alder- men as to the propriety of having gas in the streets, if the Council had the power to levy a special rate for that purpose. As a doubt existed on that point, he thought it would be well to take counsel's opinion on the subject. If the Council had not the power to levy a special rate, the question would be settled. He begged there- fore to move, " That this committee is of opi- nion that some of the thoroughfares in the Munici- pality should b...
LETTERS TO THE EDI[?]TION A HARP CAS[?] To the Editor of the New [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
LETTERS TO THE EDIT[OR.] &nbsp; A HARD CASE. &nbsp; To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR — Please to pardon the liberty I now take in ad- dressing to you this letter for publication in your widely circulating journal. My name in Stevens, and I was late a steward on the brig Flying Cloud. I shipped at Ade- laide for a trip to Sydney and Newcastle, at which former port I was paid off. When he paid me off, the captain requested me to re-engage; I did so at the same &nbsp; rate of wages. On departing from Sydney a steamer ran &nbsp; into us and carried away the after end of the house. We returned to port, and after a survey, which resulted in our favour, we left again with seventy-six tons of flour for &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Newcastle. On the flour being discharged the house was taken to pieces, the captain and the mate removing the things on shore ; and the carpenter, second mate (Mr. Connell) and myself were left to shift ...
THE RACE COMMITTEE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
THE RACE COMMITTEE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR—I was rather surprised at the meeting of the &nbsp; &nbsp; committee, held at Mr. Jones' hotel last Monday, ua the shortsightedness of some of its members. The repre- sentatives of our local press were present, and both were agreeable to subscribe a guinea each to the funds of the society, but when a motion was carried that the insertion of the programme was limited to one insertion in each paper once a fortnight, they very properly, I consider, withdrew their subscription. Now, take the paper's subscription at £2 2s., and the extra advertise- ments at £3 16s., what has the club gained, especially when they can afford to give four advertisements to Sydney papers and other extravagant prices for other work ? It is my opinion the races ought to be well ad- vertised in our local papers, if the committee wish for any success, and not squander their money upon papers which will not do them one farthing's wo...
SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
SINGLETON. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; From the Singleton Times, April 26m 1868. We are happy to hear that the young woman &nbsp; who was so severely burned on Monday last, in John-street, is progressing very favourably, and there is every hope of a comparatively early re- covery. Several of the benevolently-disposed people of Singleton, have shown the poor, desti- tute, hapless girl much kindness, and afforded her no small relief. Yesterday afternoon, a consultation between Drs. Glennie, Hartigan, and M'Kenzie, took &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; place at the residence, of Mr. David Shearer, of Glendon, as to the best course to be adopted respecting the injury Mr. Shearer's limb had sus- tained by the late dray accident, and we under- stand that it was agreed not to amputate, at any rate until methods had been adopted with a &nbsp; ...
POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. Monday, April 27, Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M. Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. MONDAY, APRIL 27, 1868, Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M. Drunkenness. James Taafe pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and disorderly in Hunter-street. Constable Wood deposed to the circumstances under which the offence was committed. He stated that he was walking up and dowu the street, singing and making a great noise. The prisoner said he had never been before the court before in his life. He was a native of the neighbourhood of Newcastle, and was well known. The prisoner was found guilty, and sentenced to pay a penalty of 10s. or forty-eight hours in the lockup. Catherine Boland (a curious-looking old woman) was placed in the dock, charged with having been drunk and disorderly in Hunter-street, on the 26th inst. Prisoner (before being asked to pead, to the Police Magistrate) : It's the first time, my darling (laughter) ; forgive me this time, and I'll never trouble you again. Police Magistrate : You are charged with being drunk &a...
THiS CASE OF MR. DREWE, OF TOMAGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
THE CASE OF MR. DREWE, OF TOMAGO. The following letter having reference to the above case, appeared in the Empire of Satur- day last :— &nbsp; Sir—I see in Mr. Parkes's reply to Mr. Forster's speeoh, &nbsp; concerning the dismissal of Mr. Drewe as teacher of the Tomago Public School, charges brought against Mr. Drewe, which Mr. Parkes says were the cause of his dis- missal. Now, Sir, I think it my duty as one of the parents of the children in the neighbourhood, to reply to some of the charges quoted by Mr. Parkes. As far as the inspector, Mr. Allpass' method of investigation, I will leave the public to judge. First, Mr. Parkes says that Mr. Drewe was a very inefficient teacher, that if allowed to remain he would destroy the school, that some of the parents had removed their children, and that others would do so. I believe there was one child re- moved from the school, and he was a nephew of the lady was reported to be Mr. Drewe's successor. He stated also, that the s...
DISTRICT NEWS. WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
DISTRICT NEWS. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. WALLSEND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Since my last communication many of our &nbsp; business people are complaining about the un- suitable position that our constable is placed in. His residence is at the pit-rows, a distance, I should think, of nearly half-a-mile from our township — the place where the storekeepers, butchers, and bakers, &c., have to transact all the business. It would, I should think, be hard to show the utility of having a policeman stationed at a place where he is not required. Doubtless, the police magistrate of Newcastle would by no means be agreeable to have the policemen who are expected to do duty at New- castle stationed at Stockton, where they are not required. The inhabitants of Wallsend are just as desirous to have their property protected as the people of Sydney or Newcastle. Some of the inhabitants here endorsed the opinion, that should there be a st...
LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 29 April 1868
LOCAL ITEMS. RACE MEETING.—A meeting of the committee was &nbsp; &nbsp; held at Mr. Jones' (the Prince of Wales Hotel), on Monday evening, Mr. J. R. Fox in the chair. Mr. H. Routse was chosen president of the club, and Mr. W. K. Lochhead, vice-president, should they consent to act in those capacities. The secretary having been asked by the chairman if he had waited upon the two local papers to see if they would make any reduction in the price of advertising, stated he had done so, and the result was to have been made known that evening. Representatives from both papers being present, stated it was very unusual to be asked to make any reduction, and declined doing so. Mr. John Mabyn proposed, and Mr. Lister seconded, " That the programme should be advertised alternate Saturdays in the Chronicle and Pilot. — Mr. Forbes moved, as an amendment, and Mr. Flynn seconded, " That the adver- tisement should appear in each paper weekly." The motion was carried. The following te...
