TEMPERANCE SOIREE AT THE BOREHOLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

TEMPERANCE SOIREE AT THE BOREHOLE. Tub anniversary day of the colony was also a great day at the Borehole, a jubilee being held here, which showed in strong and unmistakeable characters the onward progress of temperance, with its accompanying improvements and blessings. Making use of the engine and waggons kindly placed by Mr. Hodgson at the disposal of those who wished to visit the Borehoel on this occasion, we arrived there about five o'clock, ana saw trie preparations lor me loruicoming soiree, [now nearly completed. A huge fire of logs did duty for the tea, and groups of people were assembled at different points discussing their favourite topics, all sober, well dressed, and intelligent men, whose countenances, beaming with a sensible good humour, clearly demonstrated the good effects of the temperance movement. The ten was served in the national schoolroom, the numbers who crowded to it making it evident that a second course would be necessary. But tea was over the tables remov...

NEWCASTLE DISTRICT COURT. (Before His Honor, Judge Owen.) THURSDAY, JANUARY 31. BATH V. MAGNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

NEWCASTLE, DISTRICT COURT. (Before His Honor, Judge Owen.) THURSDAY, JANUARY 31. BATH V. MACJNEY. This was an action to recover the sum of £32, goods sold and delivered. For the defence, Mr. Brown objected that the necessary bill of parti culars had not been furnished, and that, in addi tion to this somewhat embarrassing circumstance, the summons bad been made to follow so closely upon the demand, as not to afford reasonable time for defence. His client had no wish whatever to repudiate the debt; on the'eontrary, he (Mr. Brown), although not absolutely instructed to do so, was even prepared to admit it. It would be, however, his duty to state that part of the goods now sued for had been furnished tp defendant on a three months' credit; that period had not yet elapsed, and, consequently, the money could hardly be considered due. He referred to this, as well as the foregoing circumstance, merely for the purpose of inducing his Honor to listen the more favourably to his application for...

To the Editor nf the Netoantle Chronicle. _.a— I did not think my letters on the Chinese would have come within the category of' abuses,' or that '} Ventilator' would have thought it necessary to take cognizance of them. He reprobates the idea of evangelizing the Chinese, andantes as if there were ? no other evils to bnflle but intemperance, as he seems A desirous of taking for his inotto the apothegm — ijf Charity begin at home.' .He may recollect there is a clause sometimes added — 'but must not end there.' 1 advise him not to seek to concentre phi lanthropy to one subject, but let tho gyrations of it extend to tho romotcBt evils that affect mankind.

THE VOLUNTEERS. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

THE VOLUNTEERS. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— ?Permit me to say a few words respecting our volunteer rifle corps. There are a great many ob stacles preventing persons from joining in this im portant undertaking, and all for the want of pro-' ?ier management. For instance, on Thursday night ust, after meeting in the Barrack square, we were .ordered to ' fall in, and, to my groat surprise, 'were marched through^r/iu^d' and dirt as far as Honeysucklo point, and, indpedi-ito the great dis credit of our drill instructor. Had our captain known anything of discipline, it would not have been so. Had the appointment been conferred on Mr. Bolton, . I- would ventuo to say that there would not be in this colony a more effective body of men than tho Newcastle volu teers. We have; for the most part, smart, active, and intelligent men ; but there is some tb/ng wanted that at present cannot be realised. I will not dwell longer on thb important ma tor, but leave it to some duly ^ua^...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

COBRESEONDENCE. to thr Editor of the NettcaslU ChrmleU. Sir — In consequence of an effusion having ap peared in your issue of last week, signed by a ' James Frarer,' I must break the contiguity of my commu nications to take notice of it, promising your readers that I will not stop to answer such a personal or would-be personal epietle. It is a fact admitted by all, that .if the foundation is bad the superstructure will tumble to pieces and bring the whole affair to nothing — yea, to worse than nothing, to a heap of rubbish which will require a certain amount of labour and time before things can be restored to their primitive state. Bearing these facts in mind, it will will be an easy 'job' to bring the epistle of ' J.F.V to a level with its writer. I say, then, distinctly, that either he is mistaken in the identity of the per son, or that his assertions are lies. Perhaps all he says about flunkeys may be true, but when applied to the writer of these communications is at variance wit...

THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT IN NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 February 1861

THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT IN ! NEWCASTLE. ? i ' That an impetus has been given to tbe volun- j tcer movement generally, by the recent demon- j stration in Sydney, may be true, but that it has ! operated as an incentive to a desirable extent is j far from doubtful, at least, as far as our own j immediate locality is concerned. The eclat j which' attended the late and almost impromptu ! display, and the commendation it elicited on i every hand, were well calculated to stimulate j tbe military ardour and to inspire the patriotic ! spirit of heroic youth, yet insufficient, as it ap- j pears, to penetrate the stoical. apathy of our na- j live born. From whatever cause this proverbial j indifference to national sentiment arises, it is a i manifest and deplorable defect in both indivi- 1 dual and national character. Yet, with but few j and honorable exceptions, this want of patriotic ! susceptibility appears to be a prevalent one, and, from its uature, capable of resisting tho influence of an...
