OUR MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

OUR MAGISTRATES. Several applications for. publican's licenses were again made to the Newcastle Bench, on Wed nesday last, all of which had again to be post poned in consequence of the non-attendance of justice.-). Really this is too bud ! Either those gentlemen among us holding commissions of the peace should attend to their duties, or they should resign a position whioh they ferl their business engagements will not allow them to fill- with credit to themselves or satisfaction to the public. The inconvenience and annoyance to which people Vre iput through the non attendance of magiltnUes is getting unbearable, and if things do imt won alter in this respect we snail teel it onr «uty to cureco the special attention of the Government to the fact. In the matter of the transfer of the license of the house known as the Cottage ? of Content, Mr. Joseph Chambers, solicitor, from East Mait land, has now made two fruitless journeys to Newcastle, and all about a matter which, if the magistrat...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE PROPOSED CAWARRA MONUMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE PROPOSED CAWARRA MONUMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR — Can you inform me what right an insignificant body of individuals, composed of nobody knows who, owing to their dirty faces, but styling themselves " the amateur minstrels," have taken upon themselves to set aside and utterly ignore a committee of gentlemen appointed at a public meeting of the inhabitants   and comprising most of the influential and leading   citizens of Newcastle, in a matter so important as the erection of a monument to the memory of the unfortu- nate men who perished at the wreck of the illfated Cowarra, steamship ? I hear, but I can scarcely believe it to be true, that these amateur minstrels have consti- tuted themselves a committee to raise funds in aid of the Cawarra wreck memorial. Now, sir, as a subscriber to the old fund, I wish these amateur minstrels distinctly to understand, that not a shilling will they get from me, and from p...

PLAGIARISM IN NEWCASTLE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

PLAGIARISM IN NEWCASTLE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir —Knowing that your columns are ever open for the promulgation of truth aud justice, as well as for the exposition of falsification or dissimulation, I trust you will allow me a short space in your journal to draw the attention of the enlightened portion of the com- munity to what is, in my humble opinion, one of the most contemptible, and despicable faults a person can be guilty of, namely, literary theft. Some time since a   ponton residing at Wallsend, and "calling" himself "Dr." Gilder, contributed, as an original composition, to a local newspaper, a poem entitled " Affection's Offering." In the following issue of your paper, a com- munication, signed "C. E.," written by a person in   West Maitland, exposes this Dr. Gilder as a plagiarist, and publishes, through your columns, the piece of poetry referred to, which is taken from the Argosy for January, 1866, and is the composition of o...

FIGHTING AT THE FIJIS. THIRTY OR FORTY CHRISTIAN NATIVES KILLED AND WOUNDED. THREE HEATHEN VILLAGES DESTROYED. From the New Zealand Herald, March 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

FIGHTING AT THE FIJIS. THIRTY OR FORTY CHRISTIAN NATIVES KILLED AND WOUNDED. THREE HEATHEN VILLAGES DESTROYED. From the New Zealand Herald, March 30. It will be remembered that, on the last occasion when the Eagle visited this port from the Fiji Islands, she brought intelligence of the murder of the Rev. Mr. Baker, Wesleyan Missonary, and his teachers at Vita Levu, and of the fact that the King of the Fijis had avowed his determination to follow up the murderers and avenge the death of that devo- ted missionary. By the arrival of the Eagle yesterday morning, we learn that the heathen aboriginals residing in the mountains, having been apprised of the King's intended attack, collected a large force and descended during the night upon an important settlement in- habited by the Christian natives, and killed and wounded some thirty or forty of the latter. Ratu Kineru, the leading chief amongst the coast natives, being justly indignant of this, assembled a body of 2000 men, and proceeded ...

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

LOCAL ITEMS. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.— Our respected fellow-towns- man, W. Keene, Esq., Examiner of Coal Folds, has recently made a most important and valuable discovery, in the shape of a splendid seam of coal containing petroleum, or oil-coal, from which the kerosene oil is manufactured. The site of the discovery is near a village called Greta, between Harper's Hill and Branx- ton, and within a few hundred yards of the Great Northern Railway line. The coal was first observed cropping up in a nearly dry creek, upon seeing which Mr. Keene employed men to bale the water out of the holes in the creek, and set them sinking shafts. The men had yesterday sunk to a depth of nine and a half feet, and there appeared to be plenty of good coal below that. In the centre of the seam of common coal, which is of excellent quality, occurs a layer of the petro- leum or oil-coal, the existence of which in this district was always considered doubtful by almost everyone, except Mr. Keene himself, who some...

DISTRICT NEWS. WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

DISTRICT NEWS. WALLSEND. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. On Saturday last, the 2nd inst., the deceased man Black, who met his death by a fall of coal in one of the Wallsend pits, was interred, shortly after four o'clock in the afternoon. Not less than 112 men followed the unfortunate man to his resting-place. The Rev. Mr. Nairn per- formed the burial service. After reading the 90th   Psalm, he proceeded to speak of the certainty of death and the uncertainty of life, and showed wherein it was the duty of every one to be pre- pared to meet their God. On Monday morning I heard that the Rev. Mr. Wood had the disagreeable satisfaction of finding himself unavoidably landed in a boghole, whilst on his road to visit some of his sick flock. This is very unpleasant to anyone whose lot it may perchance fall upon, to see himself capsized topsyturvy into a slough of despond, in our very midst ; neither is it very creditable to the in habitants of Wallsend, or of those whoso duty it might be...

METROPOLITAN AUTUMN RACE MEETING. SECOND DAY, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

METROPOLITAN AUTUMN RACE MEETING. SECOND DAY, THURSDAY.   The Cup Day was supposed to be the most attractive day of the present meeting, and a very large attendance was expected to witness the grout contest for the cup. The number of the spectators present was certainly large, but not so large as we have been accustomed to see at Randwick. By spectators, we mean the general public outside the enclosure, as the Grand Stand was full, and the other stands were also pretty well filled. The at- tendance of ladies was not so large as we have seen at some previous meetings. The racing was for the most part good, and amply repaid the trouble and annoyance of a ride through the dust to Randwick. The Flying Handicap was appropriated by Silver- tail, for which she was first favourite. Her race with Orlando the other day fully entitled her to that position, and she sustained the con- fidence of her backers by winning the race easily. There were seven starters for the Maiden Plate, ...

THE FIRST CASE OK HANGING IN CANTERBURY. From the Lyllellon Times, April 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 May 1868

THE FIRST CASE OF HANGING IN CANTERBURY. From the Lytlleton Times, April 17. The sentence of death passed upon Swales at the session of the Supreme Court, held on March 6th, for murdering his partner Rankin, was carried into effect, within the precincts of Lyttleton goal, yesterday morning. Efforts had been made by the authorities to conduct the proceedings with decency and expedition, and in all respects they were successful. The privacy now invariably observed on such occa-   sions was also provided for, and with but little exception was secured, it is worthy of remark, that the morbid excitement generally prevail- ing at executions in the old country was not apparent in this instance. From the time he was sentenced, to the moment of his death, Swales showed great coolness and indifference to the awful position in which he was placed. He kept his thoughts and feelings under com- plete control, and although he has made two confessions, they do not amount to a complete ...
