To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 August 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— Vour correspondent ' Leetje Storekeeper,' in thi»- day's issue attacks your leading article of Wednesday last, on the impending struggle between capital and labour, and ' sets out by saying that lie cosiders you are not sensible of , the importance of it, simply because you do not think as - he does. I will not further trouble you on his criticism o» ??'? your article, as I believe you have settled him on that point; but I cannot allow Ins remarks on tlie conduct oi our douj . to pass unnoticed. Now, Sir, as his whole aim seems to be ' to assist the capitalist— to deal the death-blow to the alleged ' combination of miners— 1 will endeavour to examine his reasons for dealing the blow at the combination, and to shew that ho has taken his stand on a false foundation, Now, Sir, if ' Lectle Storekeeper' had not been asleep for the last twelve months, he would never have ventured to put upon paper such nonsense as ' the miner can earn with ea...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chrtmiclt. sir — aceing me trouoie mat a certain portion of tin press and its correspondents have taken to misinform th» public mind, and to mislead the public sympathy upon tS subject of the approaching strike of the miners, perhiu you will be good enough to allow your present correjooi? dent, who is no miner, to state for the information of lucl as take an interest in the subject, that all the money ti. miners have earned in any one day for the last twirl ' muiiuiB io iia.Tu.EBui, uuv aa mcjr ore nearly nail their time idle for want of trade, the average earning of the moit industrious of them has not gone much above 40s „! week, out of which they have to find their own tool»' tnd oil, which other labourers do not require.

He was also charged with violently assaulting Edward Dunn, also of the Great Northern Railway. Mr. Ueeston appeared as prosecutor on behalf of the railway authorities.

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 August 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle Mn. Editor— I felt somewhat surprised on observing : in your columns of August 14th, a critique on the gratui. 'tous lecture delivered by A. Hodgson, Esq. From the spirit and tenor of the obbervationtuiade, I. was forcibly reminded of the adage that ' We should never look a gift horse iu the mouth.' The aim of tl|e writer U not very apparent, unless as indicating a desire tb tradfea a per formance which he himself is incapable of appreciating. The peurile conceit and pedantry of the writer be^r testu mony of his own ' dog-in-the-manger disposition,' and his ability to .enable him to find fault with that wKich his 'capacity fails to amend. The assumption nn liis part of an intimate knowledge of 'Japan a.id Japanese' is quite characteristic, but does not entitle him to presume that the audience before whom the lecture was delivered were equallv familiar with the subject. Judging from his vein of civilisation, as set forth iu this critique, no v...

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 August 1861

To the EdituT «t the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— Seeing ms worsnip me Anyur staikinf about the1 city with a roll in his hand, followed byfcne of the func-' tionaiies uf the corporation (the surveyor) like the shadow of the mid .day sun, I could not avoid enquiring what it meant, and was informed in roply that his worship was assessing the city property, and on asking the reason I was told— to save the corporation a few pounds. His worship must nut think that the citizens are so credulous to believe this talc. Ni), sir, there is a design iu it, which the Mayors self-acquired knowledge in Newcastle has planned to carry ' out a purpose, but until the citizens arrive at the facts, inferences will be rife ; and mine is, that his worship is doing the work with an eye to his ambitious views. I think he has been studying the exploits of Caias Julius Caesar, and perhaps wishes to adopt that character as his example to make himself mightier with the assistance of adherents, before I conclude, I...

THE RECENT FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 August 1861

THE UECENT FLOODS.- - We are glad to observe that the floods are now subsiding^ but although the river has fallen considerably below the level of the flood of the past week, it was still (according to the Mercury of Thursday) several feet above highwater mark. Wallis's Creek had fallen but slowly, but, how ever, was discharging itself into the river. At Dagworth, Loutli J'ark, and L.oclienu,tlie water was, notwithstanding, still remaining, and was not likely to subside for some time to come. At Phoenix Park, and in thu low lands at the back of Morpeth, large bodies of water are still submerg ing the low-lying lands. At Miller's Forest, a locality in close proximity with Four Mile Creek, many settlers were compelled to remove their families and effects, the water being in some places more than five feet deep, and it was impossible to reach Morpeth, the bridge over Close's Swamps being entirely covered, and the roadway, conse quently, had been rendered extremely dangerous. We are/ hap...

THE COLLIERY ACCIDENT AT CLAYCROSS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 August 1861

THE COLLIERY ACCIDENT AT CLAY- CROSS. Great and continuous exertions arc being made to clear the pit, but little progress is visible. On Saturday the tackle employed for drawing water up the air shaft was broken, but on Tuesday all was again in working order. The engineers are now making an attempt to work a pump from the whole shaft, but though more than three thousand gallons per hour are drawn up, little progress has been made towards clearing the pit. It is positively concluded that all must have perished, either from drowning, suffocation, or hunger. The loss from cattle alone, without calculating the expense of the present operations will be over £1,500. The men who were at the greatest distance from the shaft were first made aware of the nature of the accident, but they made light of it, and many of them remained to hide their tools or finish a certain amount of work they had determined to do before they would attempt to escape. Some of them had to pass through water up to th...

(Khtt Ityrastle flfhraiucty. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 18G1. The 'Strike' ha3 now assumed such gigantic proportions, and affects so deeply the various interests, social and commercial, of this city and its surrounding district, that we have not the heart to devote our attention to any other or foreign subject till we make one more effort to induce the opposing parties to come, or try to come, to a compromise. At this present moment the City of Newcastle presents one of the Jmost melancholy sights that its greatest ill-wisher could desire. An army of fine stalwart men lounging about with hands in pocket and pipe in mouth — de- fiant but silently determined. Anxious mothers and innocent children also figure in this melancholy Theatre. The harbour is a vast sheet of almost silent water, and the town presents an appearance of general gloom, dissatisfaction, and uneasiness, that it is posi tively painful to behold. The injury that has been done the port already by the coal proprietors, would...
