OUTRAGES ON YOUNG WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 27 May 1868
OUTRAGES ON YOUNG WOMEN. On Friday week, a shocking outrage was committed on a young woman, aged eighteen years, named Elizabeth Thompson, who resides with her mother, a widow, who keeps a small shop at Wooden Box, near Burton-on- Trent. The girl left home on. Friday afternoon to go to Ashby-de-la-Zouch, four miles distant, to make some purchases for her mother. On the way there she was overtaken by John Stanley Betteridge, a butcher and beerhouse- keeper, and Matthew Henry Thompson, labourer, of Wooden Box, who were in a trap belonging to the former. On learning that she was going to Ashby, they invited her to &nbsp; get into the cart and ride with them. She knew them well, and she accepted their invita- tion. They told her they would bring her home again if she called at a certain public house in Ashby. This she did, and on leaving the town, instead of returning by the proper road, they drove in the direction of the Pistern Hills, a lonely locality on the borders of Der- b...
AWFUL TRAGEDY IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 27 May 1868
AWFUL TRAGEDY IN ENGLAND. Todmorden has just been the scene of some murderous atrocities, without parallel in this country since the days of Rush. The theatre of the crime was the parsonage-house ; the vic- &nbsp; tiuns are the Rev. Mr. Plow and infant son, and a servant girl, while Mrs. Plow still lies in a precarious condition ; and the author of the diabolical outrage is a young man of the town, a weaver, named Miles Weatherall. The tragedy sprung out of love and revenge, and in this respect presents a solemn warning to all of the danger of yielding to the unbridled sway of our most natural feelings. This young man, who is described as of a mild and prepossessing appearance, fell in love with one of Mr. Plow's &nbsp; servants, Sarah Bell by name. The attachment was sincere and mutual, and his intentions honorable, but, owing to the extreme youth of the girl, the suit was discouraged, and Miles &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; was interdicted paying vis...
NEWCASTLE BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 27 May 1868
NEWCASTLE BAND OF HOPE. &nbsp; The usual fortnightly meeting of the above society was held on Thursday evening, in the schoolroom, under the Congregational Church. There was a large attendance, including many adults, and the proceedings were of more than ordinary interest. After the children had sang a very pretty melody, the president, Mr.Laing, who occupied the chair, opened the meeting with prayer, and a few appropriate remarks. He then called on the various young gentle men whose names appeared on the programme. Tho first item in the entertainment was a reading by Mr. William Dart, entitled 'Report of 'the Directors of the Railway to Destruc tion.' The object of the piece was to show that habits of intemperance inevitably lead to ruin. The elocution displayed in connection with the reading was fair, and at the close the reader was loudly applauded. The Tempe rance Band then played a selection of music in first-class style. The leader of this excel lent band (Mr. William ...

Mr. Corrv. — In answering the question of the linn, aud learned gentleman, perhaps the House will allow me, as it has reference to the case which has excited a veiy painful interest, to read some extracts from documents which the Admiralty have received on the subject.

\ . & WkU. A SERPENT'S TOOTH. Continued from the Chtimide, Saturday, May 2'&. Mr.. Stourton's visits appeared to excite 10 special emotion in Koonwarra's bosom. She was frank and unrestrained with him b conversation ; and, when Mr. Hardiman's onsent had been obtained, and the marriage ns a settled affair, she discussed with them lie arrangements as if she had been the last interested person in the world. But the was a. good deal more in her laboratory, ind she got from Melbourne more scientific books, and made many experiments of a physiological kind ; all which sources of oc cupation seemed to be resorted to for the purpose of mental diversion ; for, not with - ilanding her apparent acquired indifference to George and Viola's engagement, her eyes idate bad betome something hollow, and to lips less vermillion. But her affection for her sister showed no signs of diminution ; is the contrary, it rather increased; and lias, on the evening with which this story ipened, s...

A TOUCHING TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 May 1868
A TOUCHING TALE. 1 wenty-six men, the crew nnd passengers of the ship St. Abbs, were wrecked with their ship in 1855, on the small island of San Juan de Nurvu, lying midway between Madagascar mid the main laud of Africa. They were at first supposed to have gone to the bottom with the vessel which carried them. A few veins afterwards, however, n portion of the cargo of the St. Abbs, dry and uninjured by salt water, was exposed for sale in tho market of Zanzi bar, the great emporium of Eastern Africa, ying six degrees south of the equator. It wus made clear that the ocean current, which runs strongly northwards, must hare carried ship and cargo awuy from the reef of San Juan to soii'0 point of the African coast, where it landed them uninjured. If tin;-1 'argo wus safe tho immediate inference was that the crew and passengers hud also been drifted, living but liclpless, on this inhospitable shore. The ship must have touched land near Magdesho, the southernmost part of tho Somali country...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 May 1868
On no subject; perhaps, has there been more acrimonious discussion, within the lnHt thirty years, than there has been on that of educa tion ; nor have theNdebates on thia important matter been confined to one or two countries, but they may be said to have been carried on in most of the countries of Europe, in the United States of America, and in nearly all tlie British colonies. In every civilized state, lc -is admitted, tnat all classes ot the people -should be educated, the poor as well as the rich ; and the opinion is almost equally gene ral, that this ..can only, be brought about by Government stepp^ng^.in and taking the mat ter into its own hands. In all the bestedu cated countries in thi world, education has been a State matter; and even the few people in England, who hold that it should be left entirely to ^untaty effort, seem to have be come convinced of tii^insoundness of their views. The differences of opinion, therefore, have not generally been owing, either to disa greem...
