LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE PROPOSED CAWARRA MONUMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.   THE PROPOSED CAWAHKA MONUMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR — Allow me to express my thorough concurrence in the views expressed by a writer signing himself "An Original Committeeman," in one of your issues of last week. I quite agree with him that the attempt by the "dirty-faced minstrel boys" is audacious to a degree. I       do hope, sir, the public are not so gullible as to be de- ceived by this miserable attempt on the part of a few to make themselves notorious, and feather their nests. Pray, who are these minstrels that they should take the lead in such an important matter as this ? As your other correspondent very properly remarked, they are composed of a few inexperienced boys who have never been a hundred miles away from their native town, and   two or three silly, ambitious men, who court notoriety at any expense, or in any shape or form. I have as great an aversion, ...

SUNDAY TRADING. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

SUNDAY TRADING. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR — Permit me, through the medium of your valuable paper, to ask are publicans acting in accordance with law when they keep their houses open at any time on the Sabbath ? For, visit any public-house at any time on a Sunday, and there are sure to be some at least drinking there, and this while we have a policeman stationed among us. — I am, dear sir, yours, &c., A CHRISTIAN AND A SON OF TEMPERANCE. [The publicans are only allowed by law to keep open   their houses on Sundays at specified hours. By keeping them open all day they render themselves liable to a penalty of several pounds. It is in the power of " A Son of Temperance" to inform against any publican who breaks the law, and so put a stop to the nuisance com- plained of.— ED. N. C.]

WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

WALLSEND.               THE WEATHER.—The anxiety that has been     manifested by the inhabitants of this place for some time respecting the long continued drought have, since my last, disappeared. We have had a good fall of rain, but we should like to have seen a little more. INQUEST. — The district coroner held an in- quest at Mr. Hackworthy's Black Diamond Inn, respecting the death of the man Black. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased met his death by injuries received by a fall of coal while at work in the Wallsend Company's B pit. Verdict — " Accidental death.'' I will send an account of the Wesleyan Metho- dist Anniversary Tea Meeting in my next. The services passed off very well.

DISTRICT NEWS. WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

DISTRICT NEWS. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS. WARATAH.             ACCIDENT FROM BURNING.—On Saturday even- ing last, Mrs. Bear, of this township, narrowly oscaped being seriously burned, under the follow- ing circumstances. Whilst in the act of pouring   out some tea, near the fireplace, her dress acci- dentally caught fire ; but she did not notice it until her little boy told her she was on fire. There being no one in the house but herself and the children, she rushed out into the open air, when, fortunately, a neighbour, who was coming along, and seeing her in flames, hastened to her assistance, and, with the aid of others who ap- peared to have simultaneously noticed her peril- ous position, the flames were soon extinguished ; and I am glad to learn that she sustained no material injury, besides a severe scalding of both hands. Her recovery is, therefore, looked for with certainty. FOOT-RACE...

WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

WEST MAITLAND.               (From the Mercury.) A CRUEL AND MALICIOUS ACTION.—We are     informed that a cow was found in the Sugarloaf Creek on Wednesdat night last with five tomahawk wounds in its shoulder, and the tendon of one of the hind legs cut. CHARGE OF ROBBERY. — On Thursday, at the West Maitland Police Court, George Madden and John Barr were brought up, charged with having rohbod one John Neale, at Branxton, on the previous Monday night. The evidence showed that the prisoners and prosecutor had been drinking together till late in the evening, at Shepherd's public-house, in Branxton. On leaving the public-house at eleven o'clock, the prisoners followed up Neale, overtook him a little way out of Branxton, knocked him off his horse and robbed him. The evidence of the prosecu- tor was corroborated by a witness who happened to live near where the robbery was co...

SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

SINGLETON             From the Times. We are sorry to state that Alderman Williams was taken suddenly ill on Wednesday last, while engaged in business in his stores. The above gentlemen fell prostrate three times successively, and experienced a giddy sensation in the head. Mr. Williams has since been confined to bed, but   we heard yesterday that he was recovering slowly. Alderman Hewitt met with a narrow escape from an accident on Wednesday evening last. The above gentleman was in the act of stepping into his buggy to attend the meeting of the Borough Council. He had just risen on the steps when the horse [...] and Mr. Hewitt was thrown upon his back to the ground. We are happy to state, however, that Mr. Hewitt re- ceived very little injury and was able to attend to his Council duties.

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

LOCAL ITEMS. THE CRANES.—Our readers will have noticed a brief   announcement in our last issue to the effect that Mr. Russell was the successful tenderer for the Government cranes during the current year. What was then only a rumour has since turned out to be a fact. We under- stand the late contractor, Mr. Frances, " cleared out " as the phrase goes, on Thursday night last, and that his successor, Mr. Russell, is now actively engaged in carrying out thecontract. It would be a palpable act   of injustice if we were to allow this opportunity to pass without bearing testimony to the very efficient manner in which Mr. Frances performed his somewhat onerous duties during the time the cranes were in his hands. His marked urbanity, and gentlemanly behaviour to all whom busines brought him in contract with are particu- larly deserving of honourable mention. We hope the new contractor may be as successful in every respect as his predecessor. THE NON-ATTENDANCE OF ...

FATAL SNAKE EXPERIMENT IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

FATAL SNAKE EXPERIMENT IN MELBOURNE. The following particulars of the fatal results of an experiment in snake-poisoning, made with a view of testing the efficacy of Shires' antidote, are extracted from the account of the circumstances given in the Melbourne Argus of Monday last, and the report of the inquest in the same journal of Tuesday : — "It appears that the individual whose life was sacrificed in this experiment was Mr. Wil- liam Murray Drummond, aged about forty years, a police magistrate of Victoria, and a warden of the gold-fields. On the evening of Friday, May 1, Mr. Drummond dined at the     Cafe de Paris, Melbourne, in company with Mr. Alfred Telo, and some other gentlemen. The conversation turned upon Shires' exhibi- tion, and snake poisoning. Mr. Drummond   mentioned his disbelief in Shires, and expressed a desire to be bitten by his snakes in order to prove it a humbug. Mr. Telo declined to have anything to do with such an experi...
