WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 16 May 1868
WALLSEND. WESLEYAN ANNIVERSARY SERVICES.—The &nbsp; &nbsp; anniversary services of the Wesleyan Methodist Church, at Wallsend, were held on Sunday the 10th instant. The Rev. J. A. Nolan preached in the morning and afternoon, and Mr. John Dixon at night. The church was well filled on each occasion. On Monday, the 11th, a public tea-meeting took place, which was well patroni- sed, considering the number of tea-meetings that have taken place at Wallsend within the last three months. The tables were kindly given by the friends and members of the church, so that the money received for the tickets sold would be clear profit. The number present at the tea was about 200, and, to all appearance, each one seemed to enjoy the good things which had been provided for them. A considerable number came after the tables had been cleared, not being able to gut in sooner, through their being at work on the back shift. The after meeting was opened by singing and prayer, in which exercis...

NEW ARRIVALS.— The fine ship Salsette, one of the largest vessels that has entered the port for some time, ana tho clipper ship Kndina, arrived in the harbour on Saturday evening last, in tow jof the Warhawk. The ?teamtug met theni about thirty miles ontsido Nobby's, and towod. them in- together, a very creditable perform ances-seeing that the registered tonnage of both ships is ever two thousand tons. The present seems a favourable. opportunity for again referring to the Wnrliawk' steamer, now that she has had a good trial and we are well able to form dn opinion of what the is like. The experience of two or three months has quite satisfied us that the Warhawk is all we described her to be when she first entered our harbour, viz., a useful and powerful boat ; indeed; wo have frequently been' surprised to notice tho ' ease and facility with which the Warhawk moves large ships about the harbour, and tho rapidity with which she tows them in from sea.

NEWS OF THE DAY. The inquest on the body on Mr. Drummond resulted in a verdict of mabilaughter ngainat Shires. It isjvery questionable, however, if he will get anything done to hint when ho comes to be tried in a criminal court/ It is difficult to see how he can havo^ESBcir-g'uilty of, manslaughter,, when ho applied the snake to the person of Mr. Drummond with positive and admitted reluc tance. There is a rumour current in Melbourne that Mr. Drummond contemplated suicide From all that has been published, we believe the report to be unworthy pf credence. Gold has been discovered at a. place called the Little Biver, in t^e district of -Graf ton. A nuggot weighing three and a. half dvvts. has been found.'

NEWS ITOTES FHOKE PAKIS. From our Own Correspondent. Paris, Mahoh 24, 1808 TUB NEVY3PAM2U BILL. The Newspaper Bill, which so engrossed public attention, has at length passed into law, after an exciting struggle, in wliich the Opposition made up for its numerical weakness by the vigorous and brilliant eloquence of its loaders. During tho twenty-seven sittings occupied by the de butes, every article of the bill was successively dissected and combated by tlte master-minds uf the liberal party, but, unfortunately, with a result which inspires ono with anything but confidence in parliamentary independence under the present regime. Tho tusk of its defence was entrusted to four ministers, who undoubtedly displayed great oratorical abilities, and a surprising power of acting 011 the sympathies of tho nation. But tho majority in tho Corps Legislatif was prepaved to go evon farther than tho Government. As I heard remarked the other day, tliot-e are still to be found in Franco not a few who ar...
