MORPETH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870

MORPETH           A sad accident occurred here since my last communication, resulting in the Instantaneous death of Mr. William Craig,   master of the Anna Maria steamer, a small craft which plies   up and,down the Paterson and other rivers, for produce. At the time of the melancholy occurrence, the deceased was assisting to unload the vessel, when, all in a moment, down came the derrick on to his head. The weight of the derrick being considerable, poor Craig was killed on the spot. Dr. Bulmore was sent for, but long before he arrived, the deceased was far beyond the reach of all medical skill. An inquest was held, and a verdict of accidental death returned. The deceased was well-known and respected in the district. The railway extension to Morpeth fast approaches com-   pletion. The permanent way is all but finished, and the station-house is being rapidly proceeded with. It will ...

Towns and Villages of New South. Wales. NO. IV. FROM NEWCASTLE TO MORPETH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870

Towns and Villages of New South. Wales. NO. IT. PROM NEWCASTLE TO MORPETH. The traveller by road, from Newcastle to Morpeth should, if driving, be of unruflled temper, have a large supply of patience, and a moderate supply of nuts, pins, nails, rope, or, that invaluable article to travellers,   green-hide, and a screw-hammer, before he ventures upon such a neglected portion of thoecolony. For miles,   a trot cannot be thought of without "coming to grief."   Springs, however strong and light, hickory wheels, howovor springy and tough, would not last a mile over such holes, ruts, sand and swamps, as are, for nearly twenty miles, to be found on this road. The iron-bark bridge, near the once busy town of Hexham, is a dis grace to both the authorities and the residents in the   neighbourhood ; the latter for not calling attention to the subject. It is a rough, strong and cheap affair, but will in all probability float away piece-meal fo...

But anything liko regular intercommunion between tho spirits and man kind has been regarded as opposed to divine order, and only to bo offected by tho agency of evil beings.

The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 March 1870

The Turf. THEBE has been little excitement during the week, on account of actualities in the racing Uno ; tho Hartley meeting and other fixtures having created hardly any stir, in the face of Buch unpropitious weather ; but, had the contrary been thc the case, and the. greatest possible Activity prevailed, the fatal accident to Charon would have concentrated all thoughts upon itself. It is long since we have seen any turf casualty cause a more profound sensation ; and it is impossible to describe tho blank looks of Sydney's turfmen; on Wednesday, when the report went about that '.' Mr. Fisher's race-horse, Charon, had that morning broken his back while taking a gallop." There was hardly a turf speculator in our metropolis, from tho ono who venturosa "crown" to the large operator who backs his fancy for hundreds, who had not, in some way or other, invested something on' Mr.,Fisher's great colt ; and then there were other considerations which led all true sportsmen to sincerely regret...
