CORONER'S INQUEST. The district coroner (Dr. Pierce) held an in- quest on the body of a man named George Ross, found dead in one of the Wallsand pits, on the 29th ultimo, at the Colliery Inn, Wallsend. — John Duncanson deposed to going to his work in the A pit, on the morning of the 28th of April, and there finding the body of the deceased lying on his back quite dead. He was cold and stiff, and the furnace which deceased had to mind was out. His body was lying about forty yards from the air-shaft, and the deceased appeared to have gone to get some coal, as. the "skip," which was close to his body, was about half-full of coal. His feet were under the skip, and his head to- wards the face of the coal. There were no loose coals near where the body was lying. The face of the coal there was very rough. The deceased was not subject to fits. — George Harvey deposed to seeing and speaking to the deceased at six o'clock on the evening before he was found dead. — Thomas Bosfield, overseer at...

Breach of the Publicans' Act.     Robert Young appeared to answer a charge of employ- ing an unlicensed person to sell liquor in his licensed house, the "Cottage of Content," at Newcastle, on the   28th of April last. The defendant, by his attorney, Mr. Joseph Cham- bers, who appeared in conjunction with Mr. Slater,   pleaded not guilty to the charge. The Bench : Do you admit that the defendant is a licensed puhlican ? Mr. Chambers : O yes, we admit that. Constable Smith, examined by Sub-Inspector Harrison, said : I went to the Cottage of Content on the 28th of last month. I went to have something to drink ; I was asked to have a nobbler ; I had [...] a nobbler of brandy. Constable Griffin was with me. He had a nobbler of brandy also, and paid for the two drinks.

The following objection to the transfer had     been filed by Mr. Subo-Inspector Harrison, viz. : - " That the license has already been refused to Peter Conolly, the father of the said Edward William Conolly, and that it is believed that the present application for a   transfer to the said Edward William Conolly is not bona fide, but a ruse to enable the abovenamed Peter Connolly to carry on the business. Mr. Joseph Chambers, from Maitland, appeared in support of the application. In opening ...

THE PETROLEUM COAL DISCOVERY. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

THE PETROLEUM COAL DISCOVERY. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR — Referring to the discovery of petroleum coal, noticed in your last paper, I must beg that credit be given toThomasFroast, an intelligent working miner, who, some time since, opened the coal-seam at Greta, known us the Anvil Creek seam, and was encouraged and em- ployed in further research by me, in the conviction re- sulting from observations at Burrogorang, and Colley Creek, that petroleum coal would be found in the lower coal measures of the Hunter River district. The result has fully justified the labour and expense of the research I am making, which is not yet finished at Greta, and may be further successful. — I remain, Sir, your obedient servant, W. KEENE.

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

LOCAL ITEMS. PRESBYTERY OF MAITLAND.—This reverend court met   in the Presbyterian Church, Raymond Terrace, on Satur- day last, and was duly constituted with prayer by the moderator. Sederunt : The Rev. James M'Culloch (Moderator), Rev. Wililam M'lntyre, A.M., and Messrs. Hugh M'Donald, and Samuel Porter (representative   elders.) The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. After the disposal of some routine business, the Presbytery proceeded to consider a call from the Free Church Congregation, at Grafton, Clarence River, to Mr. M'Culloch. The call, which was signed by forty-five members and adherents, was accompanied with several reasons setting forth why the rev. gentleman should be translated— one tangible reason being that great spiritual destitution prevails on the Clarence, and unless the vacancy at Grafton was   soon filled, some of the congregation would, in all probability, disperse to other places of worship.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE FRIDAY AFTERNOON HOLIDAY. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE FRIDAY AFTERNOON HOLIDAY. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR— Having seen a letter in a local paper, published on the 1st of May, evidently written for the purpose of misleading the public and robbing the employés in drapers' and grocers' shops of their weekly half-holiday, which sought-for recreation is absolutely necessary to the health of the persons who are confined, with but few exceptions, in those shops from 7 a.m. until nearly 9 p.m., excepting Saturdays, when the hours of labour extend to nearly 12 p.m., I beg leave, through your columns, to reply to the same. The public, perhaps, are not aware that, after the drapers' shops are closed in the evening, there is often stock to be "straight- ened," which will keep the assistants employed three- quarters of an hour longer. I ask, then, what time have these assistants for mental recreation or cultivat- ing their minds? Yet it is essential that these persons should be well-bred, conform to th...

AN ADVENTURE WITH A LUNATIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

AN ADVENTURE WITH A LUNATIC. From the Ararat Advertiser, April 28. A lunatic adventure, ludicrous as it was dangerous, occurred last week to Mr. Fitz- gerald, of the Mininera Station, and another gentleman, whose name we think is Armstrong, near the residence of the former. Mr. Fitz-   gerald, in company with Armstrong, was   walking along a road not far removed from the home station, when they observed a strange looking figure upon horseback, some distance away, and riding in their direction. When the man approached near enough to be seen more distinctly, he presented a rather curious appearance. Besides the style of his attire,   which was in itself suspicious, there was wild-   ness in his face and posture which denoted     the lunatic ; and, as he was armed with a long- handled hayfork, he looked sufficiently for- midable. On meeting the two pedestrians, the man pulled up, and brought his hayfork to ch...

DISTRICT NEWS. WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

DISTRICT NEWS. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS. WARATAH. The anniversary services of the Wesleyan Met- hodist Chapel, Waratah, were held on Sunday and Monday, the 3rd and 4th May, 1868. Three sermons were preached— in the morning, by Mr. Buckland, of Wallsend, and in the afternoon and evening, by the Rev. J. A. Nolan, but, owing, no doubt, to the state of the weather, the congregations were small ; the collections, how- ever, realised £4. On Monday, the tea meeting was held, and about one hundred persons sat down to an excellent tea, provided by Mr. Shoe- smith. Tea being over, a public meeting was held, which was addressed by the Revs. E. C. Pritchard and J. A. Nolan, and Messrs. T. Mit- chell and W. Thornton. The burden of the speeches was the debt. Mr. George Mitchell occupied the chair, and Mr. Daniel read the re- port, from which it appeared there was a debt of £118 10s. on the chapel. The collections (tea and subscriptions) realized the sum of £18 10s. An incipient matter of chica...

WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

WALLSEND. Accident. — A serious accident occurred, on Wednesday, to Mr. Samuel Seeley, gingerbeer manufacturer, of this town. It appears that Mr. Seeley was driving his springcart, laden with gingerbeer, &c., from this place towards Minmi, and when he had got some distance on the road, his horse shied at a log of timber and bolted, one of the shafts of the cart being broken. Mr. Seeley was thrown out of the cart and got seve- ral of his ribs broken, besides a severe cut on the forehead. The injured man was assisted home, where he was promptly attended to by Dr. J. Pierce. ANOTHER ACCIDENT.—On Wednesday, an ac-   cident of a serious character happened to a man of the name of Whitcombe, a labourer, employed on the top of the pit. He was in the act of run- ning a full waggon of coal from the screen into the siding for the railway engine, when he got jammed between the plates at the corner of the trucks. He was quickly conveyed home, and Dr. Pierce was at once in at...

MINMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

MINMI.         The weather is now turning rather sharp ; we think frosty nights are not far distant. Water is becoming very scarce amongst us, and it is quite a compliment to get a cask for one and sixpence. When in Maitland last week, we saw beautiful water brought from a greater distance at the price of sixpence a cask. We have much reason to congratulate each other in getting our much-respected medical man (Dr. Freeman) amongst us again, we trust he will receive every encouragement to remain. We have had some street preaching for a couple of nights, which, with the exception of two or three who thought to make themselves look big in ignorance, the audiences appreciated very much. We have had some sermons lately to think over from the Rev. Mr. Nairn, who is to be regularly with us now.     This is all I have to say at present.

COONABARABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

COONABARABRAN.       The weather still continues very dry, and rain is much needed ; indeed, if we are not favoured with a pluvial visitation soon the consequences will, to all appearance, prove disastrous. The accounts from some of the remotest parts of our extensive district are by no means of a cheering character. Scarcity of grass and water is already being felt, and I need hardly mention that these are two calamities which tend to impoverish a pastoral district considerably. The Cumberland disease has recently made its appearance amongst both horned cattle, and horses, within a short distance of Coonabarabran, and many of the squatters fear it will spread extensively ere long. Several horses and bul-   locks died of this malady lately. We have been visited with somewhat keen frosts during the past week, and almost every thing in the shape of garden vegetation has been slightly injured. The frosts on the Castlereagh are general...

PETROLEUM GOAL AT ANVIL CHEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

PETROLEUM COAL AT ANVIL CREEK. From Thursday's Mercury.   In our last issue we briefly mentioned the fact, that coal had been discovered at Anvil Creek, half way between Maitland and Single-   ton, of the kind used for the manufacture of   kerosene oil. We had, on Tuesday, an oppor-   tunity of inspecting the spot, through the courtesy of Mr. W. Keene, Government Exa- miner of Coal-fields, who, with a party of gentlemen interested in the manufacture of kerosene, visited the spot on that day. Leaving by the mid-day down train, the party arrived in due course at the platform near Anvil Creek, whence they proceeded, on foot, towards the creek, about five or six hun- dred yards distant, passing on the way to the pits formerly worked by Mr. Farthing, but which are now deserted, that gentleman having opened a fresh mine some distance away, on the other side of the line. On arriving at the creek, a merrily-blazing fire of coals, on its ba...
