Christmas Toasts and Sentiments. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 23 December 1874
Christmas Toasts and Senti ments. The golden rule: may we always do to others as we should wish them do to us. To the memory of those who have fought and bled for Great Britain. The three blessings of this ' life— health, wealth, aud a good conscience. Say what is well, and do what is better. May the journey througft life be as sweet as it is short, and the end peace. May we live long, and enjoy the Providence of Heaven. May the sickness, of tho body ever prove the health of the soul. The "key of knowledge: may it open the casket of good, not evil. True pleasure: 'may it always be fonnd at home. "Omit no opportunity of doing good, and you will find few opportunities to do evil. Of tho absent speak, well, or else not at all. Honour and esteem a new friend, whatever his fortune. . In the voyage of life, content is the safest pilot. If the clock of the tongue be not set by tho dial of the heart, it will not go right. Be slow to promiso, atjd quick to perform. Prefer loss to unjust gain...

SHOCKING CALAMITY. The New York journals bring par-&lt;*> ticulars of a shocking calamity at Fall River, Massachusetts. A fire broke out in the fourth floor of a wooden mill, and the flames, fed by oiled cottons and other combustibles, spread with such ra pidity that the escape of sixty opera tives on the sixth floor was cut off. Many of these operatives .were women, and at last they .were, forced to jump from the windows to the ground, seventy feet below. ' Some fell upon, straw and mattresses thut had been hastily col lected, and were .not severely injured ; others, however, were instantly ltilled by the fall, or were fatally wounded. Some who dared not leap were suffocated be fore tho eyes of their relatives. In all, twenty persons were lolled outright, or have since died of their injuries. Three are missing, and supposed to be dead, and thirty-six are on the list of wounded, making a total of fifty-nine -killed and wounded.; ! Six of the killed, who were mangled and b...
WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 23 December 1874
WOOL. Some little inquiry which was shown for the first few days after the close of the recent sales has since died away, and during the past fortnight there has been nothing doing in this staple. Wo learn, however, from'the manufacturing dis tricts, that consumption is going on at a fair rate, although at the same time it would appear that tho demand for woollen goods is hardly maintained to the same extent as recently. 'Messrs. Charles Balma and-Co. report :—-" The more remote prospects of the market are scarcely so promising as those now immediately before us; for, notwith standing that many circumstances exist which '?? will teiid to favor continued activity in the woollen industry, it can not be denied that the range of prices now ruling is mncli above an average, and that the largely increased produc tion arising from, the new clip, whicli will Shortly be coining forward, it is said even earlier than usual, will, therefore, probably exercise aconsidcrable influence in checking...
