CAVE ADULLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 13 May 1876
i CAVE ADULLAM. SINCE the days of Gregson and Gully, when George the Fourth was king, thile advent of prize fighteis in an Assembly of Parlianllotary ripresentatives holding idllegiance to thile British Crown, has been very rare, if at all, until MIr. MecElhone put on thle belt in thle House on Wednes day night. If itwero not for what Mrs. Grundy might say, I could almost wish that some one had accepted his invitation to "come outside," and then obliged in, to his heart's content. Even though his insulting challenge had been accepted, I inclhin, however, to the opinion that the bully of the Upper Huntor. would either have run away, called. for the police, or cried peccavi. Your true plucky individual never goes about blackening the characters of wiser, kinder, cleverer and better hIearted imen than himnself, but this is the nori,, in which: roys tering, cowardly swash-bnucklers par ticularly excel, in fact. tlhey can play no other. Thle lat mail brouglht us the particulars of a poor...

Overcrowding the Pit. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 13 May 1876
Overcrowding the IPit. (11u our I'althnad Corresaponent.) Tre manner in whirl the most of tihe collieries of this distriot are cro\wded wits men is a fruitful source of complaint, and a groat injustice to mren who have resolved to make this distriet their homo ansd have consequently invested their money in property. At present there are 464 coal. hewers in the Wallsend pit, and these men for rmany months have barely been employed half their time. This state of things contirnuing for so many months has thrown qrto ra dullness over the township, and there are not a few men who eqlmeno recently from tie other colonies would like very much to got away ; only, in some cases, lnving sunk their stook of money in building, and not making sufficient to keep themselves, they are not in a posi tion to carry out their intentions. Tihe mroderatly fair wages earned by tihe miners someotwco yeirs ago induced a great initrx of men from tie other colonies, and especially from Victoria. As fast as te...

Twenty-one Days Speechless. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 13 May 1876
Twentyon?oe Days Speechlcss. ON April the 4th (the Bordes Post relates), Robert Levis, a farmer residing at Bungowannah, went from his dwolh ling to a paddock, for the purpose of commeneing ploughing operations. Next day he was discovertd by one of his noeighbours in an insensible condition, who had him removed to the Albury Hospital, where he still lies in a pre carious state. When discovered, one of the horses that were yoked to the plough was grazing in the paddock with its harness on, having extricated itself evidently by violence. The other horse stood perfectly still in front of the plough. It was the strange position of the animals first created attention, and eaused the alarm. On reaching the ground it was ascortained that there wore bruises on Levis's he?d, and that he was bleeding from one of the ears, and it is the dootor's opinion that he ihas suffered a saovere concussion of the brain. The whole affair is enshrouded in mystery, which will not be clearedl up until thle p...
The Legislative Assembly. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 13 May 1876
Tihe Legislative Assembly. THE proceedings in the Assembly on Wedriesday evening afford ample oppor tuetity for the enemies of Responsiblo Government to hold it up again to public derision. Night after night thle time of the House, whlich should be occupied in transacting the business of the country, is wasted in disgraceful recriminations and scavenger-lilke abuse. Tile Legislative Assembly ot New South VWales is fast becoming a by word and a derision even to those who have always made capital out of tile rowdyism created at some of the Parliamentary meetings in the smalles~t States of America. A large number of the members of the New South W\Vales Parliament seem never to havy comprehended the importance of tire dignity which should array tlhem as representatives of the people. To many, the position of MI.L A. is only desired as a means of gratifying an inordinate vanity, and not a nlaudable ambition to be foremost in the ranks of well-doers for their country.

OUR CANADIAN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 13 May 1876
i(Frnm Mr. Jan.-Harold, late of Greta, N.S. t'.) Snh the Crleanadian Pacilic Railway be cotnmeunced forthwith ? is a qnustion that is agilttiig the public mind in the D.,minion just now. 'The British Colmnltions say yes, and Mr. M'Keuzie, Premier of the COnuldian Confedonray, says ;no, nIIl he is lacked by somne ot r millitons of COanaLinas. 'lIhe piopulatioul of Blritislh Columbia is only twelve thousand, so it does not require much of a prophet to tell him how the tight will go. It seems that the construction of this railway was held out as a sop by the Canaditns to the BIlritish Column hians, to entice them into the Confcede racy By'this contract Canada bound herself to construct the railway in a given time-by the expiration of the year 18I0, I believe.

GEORGEo BARNES was the only child of an humble pair of English irumigrants, who lived upon theo'banksof Lake Mloose -head State of Maine, United States of America. George's father was one of the down troddon agricultural labourer type, but he lhad by some means contrived to escoape from bard labour and short wages at homno to the States. His prosperity in the New World was nothing extraordinary; nay, it was even below the ordinary. At thie tinme of George's birth, his father was past the middle age, and all Ie could boast of as the fruits of his industry was a small cottage, and about an acre of land. This small plot was totally inadequate to support him and his family, so that the old man was forced to work as a lured man to his hIeighibour, farmer Morris. I-rowover, between what he earned andi what the garden yielded,old man Barnesm, as he was called, contrived to ko...
