DISTRICT NEWS WALLSEND FEARFUL COLLIERY ACCIDENT AND AWFULLY SUDDEN DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 2 May 1868

DISTRICT NEWS.             FEARFUL COLLIERY ACCIDENT AND   AWFULLY SUDDEN DEATH.   (FROM PATRICK O'RAFFERTY.)           Thursday, April 30.—We have had two     fearful accidents in the pits here, some account of which may prove acceptable. Yesterday     a poor fellow, named David Blacky, got dreadfully crushed in the Wallsend pit by a   heavy fall of coal. He is not dead yet, but I hear with deep regret that there is no hope of his recovery. The doctors think he will die before the morning. Poor fellow, he is a married man, with a family. The second case     occurred in the Wallsend old pit, and a poor man named George Ross it the victim. He was employed by the manager of the company to cut chaff for the pit horses, and to atte...

FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 2 May 1868

FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. On Monday, 27th ultimo, a delegate meeting took place at Mr. Cairns' public-house, Lambton, according to advertisement. Representatives were present from the various collieries, Minmi and Redhead excepted. It was thought that it would be a mark of disloyalty to our most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, and her noble son the Duke of Edinburgh, to hold a general meeting on Tuesday, the 28th ultimo, after the proclamation issued by the Governor-General the Earl of Belmore, setting that day apart wherein to return thanks to Almighty God for the resto- ration to health of our beloved Prince. After the various pieces of business had been disposed of, it was agreed upon to postpone the meeting to an indefinite period. BAPTIST CHURCH ANNIVERSARY.— On Monday, the English Baptists celebrated their second anni- versary by a teaparty and public meeting, which took place in the Presbyterian Church, which was kindly lent for the occasion. Both the tea and after meeting wer...

LAMBTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 2 May 1868

LAMBTON.   FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. CONCERT. — A concert took place here in the Mechanics' Institute, on Monday night last. There was a great number of persons present, and the pieces sang gave general satisfaction. The charge being very low, everyone had a chance of going. The concert was for the bene- fit of the institute. We are happy to say that William Winget, of this place, who was so badly hurt in the Waratah coalmines, is a great deal better; he is able to walk about, and, we hope, he will keep on pro- gressing. I see in your last issue, that there is talk of sending a constable to this placee. I hope they will do so, for one is really wanted, for there has been nothing but rows and bad language, es- pecially after the pay. Lambton has greatly improved, this last twelvemonth, owing to the coal trade going on very well. Nearly everybody has had something   done to their houses to make them look neat and comfortable. There are others who have had n...

This road adjoins the Waratah Company's present railway, and will convey the coal from there to the shoots.     CAMPMEETING.—A meeting of this kind took     place here on Sunday last, among the Primitive Methodists. In the morning they marched through the town, singing hymns and trying to call everybody to come with them.

SINGLETON. Abridged from the Singleton Times. CRIMINAL ASSAULT ON A CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 2 May 1868

SINGLETON.             Abridged from the Singleton Times. CRIMINAL ASSAULT ON A CHILD. At the Singleton police court, on Monday, the 27th instant, before J. Lethbridge and J. Johnson, Esqrs., J. P.'s, a man named William Porters, was charged with having criminally assaulted a little girl, seven years of age, named Catherine Guthrie. According to the child's own statement, the prisoner met her near the river in Singleton, where she was playing with her sister, and took her down to the river, and there committed the offence with which he stood charged, giving her a half-penny at the same time. The evidence in support of the charge, though somewhat conflicting, pointed strongly to the prisoner as being the gulty party. The following is a digest of it: — Margaret Seymour, mother of the girl, stated that, about three weeks ago, she saw blood on the child's pinafore, and a closer examination found that all her c...

Another brutal and cowardly attempt at murder was committed in Panama on the evening of the 25th inst., by which the life of one of our foreign citizens, Mr. G. E. Fawcett, correspondent of the New York Herald, wa nearly sacrificed. On the afternoon of the day iu question, Mr. Fawcett, in company with a friend, was returning home from his custo- mary afternoon drive in the country, when he overtook two young men on horseback, and in attempting to pass them the wheel of his buggy hit the horse of Mr. J. Paredes on the flank, the rider having turned him across the road   instead of moving a little to one side. Mr.     Fawcett immediately reined in his horse with   the intention of hearing whether any damage   had been done, and making an explanation, but before he could do so Paredes rushed at him and struck him a heavy blow across the chest with his riding whip. ...

A report had been made to the Government that the grave of O'Farrell had been disturbed during the night, and, in consequence the Inspector-General of Police had sent officers to the spot to see if the grave had been ...

THE MARKET RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

THE MARKET KESERVE. Under the head, of the ' Newcastle Borough Council,' readers of to-day's Chronicle will find the report of a discussion on the nbove subject, which will be perused by many with much interest. The appropriation of the valuable grant of land, known commonly aa the ' Market Square,' has been talked of aud written about ever since the city was pit claimed a Municipality — ueurly ten years agb. On turning over some old files of this jouinajj* as far back as the year 1859, we were sur prised to notion that, even then, the question had attracted considerable attention, and waa about to be taken in hand .and disposed .of without delay. Somehow or other, and for reasons which it would be fruitless to inquire into now, that whs not done, and year after year was allowed to' pna* away without any sustained trad well-directed effort being made to rid the city of an intolerable nuisance, and confer upon the citizens an inestimable boon.
