But before this wes done he would like to draw attention to what he considered discrepancies in the assessment, as the capital value of the property assessed was not, in some instances, filled in, and should there be exceptions made and an appeal court held, the aldermen would not like to be defeated through defects in the valuation. Alderman Hooo said he hid called upon Mr. Buxton (one of the valuators), who told him he had never got the area of Platt's ground and a few other properties, conse ,quentlyihe could not finish the assessm...

Latest District News. LAMBTON. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 1 July 1874
(FROSM OUR VARIOUS CORRESPONDENTS.) LAMBTON. THE decision of the bench at the Lambton Appeal Court in the case of the -Lambton' colliery assessment has caused a great deal of dissatisfaction among the ratepayers here. Everyone seems to think that justice has not been doie.' 'From £81 to £25,-- not a bad *day's work for Mr. Croudaoe, and everyone seems puzzled to. know how -it ihas been brought about, as the Company paid £50' last year, and several hundred pounds' dworhi of improvements have been made on the rate- able side of the railroad since. But o-f course, as the Manager very pertinently re marked, they only paid the rates last year through. charity'or something else,--not be cause they had any legal right to do so. The *valuator made a grand mistake when they thought that the Company's property ought to be taxed according, to its value. This system won't work with collieries; it only applies to the poorer class of ratepayers. The land which the Company have in their pos sessio...

The Promised Shipping Facilities and the Miners. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 1 July 1874
The Promised Ship ing , Facilities and the Miners. BY the reports of miners' meetings held during tile past week, we notice that some are opposed to a demonstration being held to petition the Government to make better facilities for shipping coal at Newcastle. We have no right to call in question the decision of the men at any particular col liery, for we believe it was given conscien tiously; but at the same time we cannot j help thinking that the mere fact of the money having been voted for the work ought not to be taken as a suficient reason for indifference on the part of those who are interested in the prosperity of the coal trade. It is now 'several months since :'mdney was voted for the erection of cranes nin the dyke at Bullock Island, but as yet no cranes have been erected. It is also ·many months since money was voted to r:iect a Custom House in Newcastle, putting down additional mooring buoys for ivessels,--and a host of other things that we •could mention, but as .yet no...

NARROW ESCAPE FROM BEING BURNT OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 1 July 1874
FAIlIIOW ESCAPE FROM BEiNO BURiNT OUT. Theothcrnight Mr. andl Tirs. Envans, of PTrookstown, retired to rest leaving afire burning in the fireplace, and damped down, as usual, with small coal.

ANVIL (JREBE AND GRETA. LECTURE ON DR. LIVINQSTONE. A MosT interesting lecture was delivered by Mr. Steadman, of West Maitland, at the Anvil Creek Company's workbshop on Satur day evening last. The subject was the late Dr. Livingstone, the weaver boy that went to Africa. Mr. Egglestono was moved to the chair. The Chairman, in introducing the lecturer, said he hoped the audience would pay respect ful attention to the lecture, as he was sure it was not every day they received a treat of this kind. He said he had much pleasure in in troducing Mr. Steadman. The lecturer, on coming forward, said he had chosen a subject which ought to interest all of them, and while he was speaking he hoped they would give him their attention. He did not pretend to be able to do justice to his subject, but he had done his best to place it in a light that would both inform and interest. The lecturer then introduced the subject of his story, end dwelt upon his youth ful career as a cotton spinner at the vil...
BURWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 1 July 1874
BURWOOD. THE weather is very unsettled, giving very little chance of recovery to those who are auffering from cold, of which there is not a few in this district. The places in this neigh bourhood are unfit for habitation at this time *of the year, and all for want of drainage; when it is raining it presents the appearance *of a lagoon more than anything else, which is a great shame, for by a small expenditure the ground could be drained, thereby making the place healthy, and fit to reside in, which is not the state of things at present, as the numerous cases of illness can prove. The Improvement Society held its meeting last Thursday evening. There was a fair attendance of members. The President (Mr. G. Robertson) gave an instructive and useful lesson on drawing, clearly showing where errors were made by many in drawing, and ably explaining the way to avoid them. The president is untiring in his exertions to ad vance the members of the society, all of whom appreciate his abilities a...
