News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 1 September 1860
An accident occurred at the-Williamstown Station of the Victorian Railway early on Tuesdays, but was fortunately unattended by any loss of life. It seems that one of the engines required to be turned on the turntable, erected near the loco- motive sheds, and had gone up the line for that purpose, andwas returning, when by some accident it came in contact with the up-train, striking them very heavily. The only passenger-CaptainChisam, : of the Ocean Eagle-hearing some one cry "Look out!" put his head out of the carriage-window just as the collision took place, and was thrown, with great violence against the other side of the carriage. On being found, he was insensible, and remained in that state for some time.. On being conveyed on board his ship, which was, fortunately, along side the Railway Pier,medical advice was pro cured, and it was found that he had not sustained any very severe injury. &nbsp; &nbsp; SPrayers for the'restoration `6f peace in New Zali?id werei o...

THE SMALL DEBTS COURT. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 8 September 1860
THE SMALL DEBTS COURT: [To the Editor of the WILLuiTsrows CiRONICL] " Srn,-It would be doing me agreat favour, and not only me but many others like myself, if soinething could be done to alter the Small Deblts Act, so" that money that has been due over six months might be recovered withlut haying to go to Melbourne about it. Every shopkeeper kniows that it is adifficult thing to keep accounts within six months. One man is sick; or out ofivoik, so it is no use to sum iiions him then, and by the time he recovers the.six' inoonths are up, and. you may whistle for your.money : he knows it won't pay you to leave your business to go to felbburne two or three times to recover his little debt'of a pound or two, so you are done out of it. If the time were extenided to. a year, the Act would be of some use td people, but it is-a farce- as it stands. STOREKEEPER.
THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 8 September 1860
.: ..THE ' MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [T'i tie Fdit-i ,f ie Wl.Aaisidtows CuinosiCr.l] Sin,--1tlhink it would be an improvement to the Meclianics' Institute Assembly Rooni, and an advantage to the institute generally, if an endeavour were made to adorn the hall by placing scenery upon the stiige.' As it now stands, it is perfectly useless for dramlatic performances, and is somewhat inconvenient for concerts, especially when ladies have to appear, as there is no place for retirement. I dare say that the Committee are cogni zant of:a want of something upon the stage, and the reasoi that nothing has been done is owing, perhaps; to a want of funds. 'But the cost.would not be a great deal; £100, I should think, would be sufficient to do all that is required, and two-orthree good enter tainments would pay it all off - AN OccAsIOS.?i VIsrror.
