MAITLAND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
MAITLA;ND RAocs.-We would re mind our readers that the first day's races, under the auspices of the Northern Jockey Club, take place to-day, on the Maitland Racecourse. Weo believo that this meeting will be one of the most successful ever hold in IMaitbmd, notwithstanding the postponoment. and as the majority of the horses entered are excellent "goers," and the events upon the whole very open, someo'god racing may be anticipated. WeVo gave our "tip "in a recent issue, so it it is unnecessary to repeat it. The energetic Secretary (Mr. R. Craeknoll) and officers generally, have been unremitting in their attention to the wants of the course, and it now only requires fine weather to makotho meeting an unqlmlifled success.-The train arrangements are published in our advertising columns, and are all that. could boe desired, the "specials" being judiciously :interspered amongst tho 'ordinary trains.

NOTES AND EVENTS [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
NOTES AND EVENTS (FROM OUR SYDNEY CORRESPONDENTS.) TuE lecture delivered by the Rev. Dr. Lang the other evening in favor of the Ilawarra railway, may be likened to that hIarmless little anuial produced by the mountain in labour-in fact the worthy doctor has improved upon the fables which gave to the mountain only one mouse for its trouble. Tihe rev. gentle man has produced no less than .five of those interesting little creatures, after about an hour's labour. The lecture, boiled down, aonsists of five reasons ad vanced by the Doctor in favor of the line. His first mouse is decidedly a'Scotchlnan. He says "the line would pay." Mouse No. 2 also appears to hail from the land o' cakes, he, too, having an eye to the baw bees, but evidently has a dash of Austra lian blood in his veins, for lie says that " Sydney would be supplied with the very best coal at the lowest possible price." No. 3 is a fine fellow-a purely Australian monso, who intends to " make our harbor the great coal exportin...

A Riot on a Victorian Gold-field. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
A Riot on a Victorian Gold-field. Ax c unruly disturbance, which at one time threatened to be very serious, occurred at the Hard Hills Rush, Berlin; on the 1st instant. A correspondent informs tho " Maryborough Standard" that 1000 miners had lighted bonfires, which illumni nated the whole place; flags wore flying, bells were ringing, and meetings of small groups of miners were held. From all these indications it was evident that some thing was going on ; and it soon trans pired that the object was to drive the Chinese fromn their claims, and hunt them away. Hostilities were comlmenced by throwing stones at the huts and residences of the Chinaeuon, who, as may be supposed, were very muchl alarmed. Tie chief scene of operations was in front of the store of Ahl Yem, who had a nrrrow escape from personal injury. His windows smnashed, and the roof of his place battered in. Entry was ait length forced, and Euro peans, to the numbner of forty or fifty, loudly clhnoured for drink. Others ca...
VICTORIA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 16 May 1876
VIOTORIA TIIEATRE, LAsT night witnessed the first production of a series of dramatic representations at the above house. We regret to have occasion to observe that, with the exception of a few of the more intelligent and wealthy citizens of Newcastle, the dress Circle was but poorly attended. The other parts of the house were crowded. In speaking of the merits of the dramatic corps which presented " uMacboth "to the Newcastle public, ina stago well worthy of itsproper adaptation, we feel bound to say that our previous impressions wore far from being realised. All that attention. to scenery or dramatic effect could be obtained was done and well done. The Witches chorus, in both sceneos, although evidently little more than a rehearsal on ocie occasion, deserved the applause it met with. The Lady Macbeth of Moss Adelaide Bowring was in every respect ae finished perfornmance, The applauseo which greeted thin labdy's appearance clearly indi cated ftle position she is likely to hold in pu...

MEDICAL. R. F. W. R EAY, I AS A Medical Botanist Of upwards of twenty years' standing, Respectfully informs the residents of Newcastle Wallsend, and Hunter River District generally that he is practising his profession with that MARKED SUCCESS Which has made his name so popular on the Gold-fields and in the Coal-mining districts of New South Wales. The superiority of the system of herbal Treatment over all others is now acknowledged by the lead ing members of the Medical Faculty all over th world; and the cry is-Our Medicines are "Purely Vegetable'!" Professor HuxZrL has demonstrated in his work, "Protoplasm," that mineral substances cannot be administered with benefit, and that only after Nature has transmuted them into plants are they good for either Food or Medi cine. Experience tau,,ht Herbalists this great truth long before the learned Professor dis covered it for himself, and none have had clearer and more conclusive evidence of their efficiency than FRANCIS W.

Munro answered; " but whatever it may be we must not turn back now." " How ought we to act, do you think ?" I inquired. " We ought not to act at all," he answered. "We had better wait and see what his next move will be. He is certain to take some step. He will try to get you out of this house by hook or by crook. He has also striven to effect his purpose through Miss Elmsdale, and failed. It will therefore be necessary for him to attempt some other scheme. It is iiot for me to decide on the course he is likely to pursue; but if I were in your place, I should stay within doors at night I should not sit in the dark near windows still unshuttered.
