WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 May 1868

WARATAH.         A COWARDLY ACTION. — On Saturday evening last, about half-past six o'clock, the servant girl in the employ of Mr. Ferris, postmaster, of this town, was outside getting coals in, when she felt something strike her, and, look- ing up, she saw a man in the act or throwing a stone at her. The girl at once raised her hand to prevent the stone hitting her head, when it struck her violently on the arm. I believe this is the fourth time the same cowardly ruffian has attempted to strike this girl with stones. On one occasion the fellow threw a stone at her through one of the windows of the house, and another time he threw a stone into the back kitchen with such force that it went right through the house. Had any of these stones struck their intended mark, the proba- bility is the girl would have been seriously, if not dangerously, injured. I have not heard the name   of this cowardly fellow, who seems to deligh...

WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 May 1868

WALLSEND.           I notice that many of the miners who left Wall- send a few months back are now returning ; some   of them are getting employment at the Co-opera- tive pit, and others at the Wallsend colliery. This shows well for Wallsend. It is generally thought that this will be a prosperous year for the coal trade. I sincerely trust it may. I find   on calculating, that there are at the present time nearly two hundred miners less in this district than were here twelve months ago. Last year at this time we had about 1250 miners in the New- castle district ; at the present time I cannot count more than 1040. The cause of this decrease was, doubtless, the bad state of the coal trade last year.           The weather is all that we could wish it to be, as regards it being pleasant. The late rains   have made things ...

EAST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 May 1868

EAST MAITLAND.     Business generally is extremely slack in this part of the world, and I fear it will be some time before it improves. The recent Assizes certainly caused a little excitement during the fortnight they lasted, but now that they have passed over, things have fallen into their old channel. There   is one consolation for us, in the fact that this state of affairs is not peculiar to East Maitland,     for, if the newspapers are worthy of belief, the whole of the colony, and, indeed, of Australia,   is suffering from similar commercial depression. However, talking about these matters does not   improve them, so I will pass on to other subjects. As you are aware, the Church of England Synod of the Diocese of Newcastle has been holding its second session, in the School of Arts   at West Maitland, during last week. The inte- resting nature of the proceedings may be judged ...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 May 1868

GENERAL NEWS. The Dubbo Dispatch says, when Johnson was   in that neighbourhood bushranging, he was ac- companied by a girl who carried firearms and used them quite expertly.       An agitation is on foot in Riverina for the establishment of a daily mail between Albury and Wagga Wagga, so as to speed the despatch of letters from Melbourne for the settlers along the line. The challeugo made by Cusack's friends to run him against Mat. Higgins, 150, 200, and 300 yards, has been accepted at Wangaratta ; Higgins to receive £40 for going to Wangaratta as ex- penses, and half the gate proceeds. Attention is drawn to the fact that there is employment for a large number of persons who understand cotton-picking, at Ipswich and the surrounding district. We have heard it whispered (says a Rockhamp- ton journal) that there is a chance of two screw steamers being almost immediately laid on from Melbourne to Brisbane and the northern ports. The R...

OUR WEST MAITLAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

OUR WEST MAITLA.MD LETTER. Tho Synod of the Diocese of Ncwcastlo brought its sittings to a close on Wednesday. Although, as I stated in my last, the public generally did not appear to manifest much in terest iu tho proceedings, they were of much im portance- to the large religious body which they more particularly concerned. Everything ap riimt-ml in lift vnrv wr.ll nnntliinfcnfi iliiiI fcliM (1a. bates wero characterised by much propriety and Kood nenao, and evinced a strong desire on the pnrt of the members to discuss all the subjects that came before them in a fair and Christian spirit. All that the Bishop said seemed to have much greater weight, aud to bo much more ap plandwd than similar remarks from an ordinary chairman would have been, but, with this exeep tion, tho Synod very much resembled a Presby terian Synod ar General Assembly, or any other popular religions meeting for deliberative- pur poses. Popularly constituted bodies, such as this Synod, are something of a novelty...
