HALF HOLIDAYS AND EARLY CLOSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

HALF HOLIDAYSXND EARLY CLOSING. Tt is a matter much to be regretted that the movement which some eighteen months ago enlisted (he sympathies of so many worthy gentlemen Mh Newcastle, ^jnd bade fair to in crease its suppprtL-s by sure and steady steps; should have beeVallowed ip such a short space of time to fixll into even partial disrepute.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE FRIDAY HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE FRIDAY HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sib — Having read several letters 111 your valuable journal for' and agninst opening the various ftrnpoiy establishments on Friday afternoon in this city, I um delighted to see that the Uadviy drapery estublisnraonta still adhere to their promise, uiid close on Friday after noon, and I am inclined to believe that the smaller drapery places of buniness would oloso if some kind friend were to »sk them, for they find that they are on the wenkest side, and the ladica of thv oitv do not itn prov* of the steps they have taken. But, of course, it is human nature not to yield. I know that several of the assistants, both male and female, are examples and ornaments in the positions in which they are placed, and, soiric of them being Sabbath-sehool teachers, have only Friday afternoon to preparo for Babbuth-sohool datioH, as thoro is 'no timo during the rest of tho week, their hnurs'being from sig...

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

LOCAL ITEMS. FIRE. — Late last night — about eleven o'clock— the fire- bell at the Newcomen-street Station rang out the alarm of fire, and in a short time the streets were full of people. It soon became known that the scene of the fire was on board the steamer Aquarius, owned by Mr. Dalton and others, of this city. Constable Davey first discovered the fire and gave the alarm at the engine-station. The steamer being close in alongside the steamers' wharf, a large crowd gathered on the spot, ready to render assist- ance if required. Both the engines were got down to the wharf in a very short time, and were speedily pouring any amount of water on to the burning vessel. The origin of the fire is not known, but it is believed that it was caused by some portion of the steam engines setting fire to the bulk-head. The steamer is valued by the owners at about £1200, and is not insured. The fire was got well under by midnight. So far as could be ascer- tained last night, the damage done to th...

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, MAY 28,, 1868. Before H. Scott, Esq., P. M. Obtaining a Watch by False Pretences. Thomas Nicholson was charged with obtaining a watch, the property of one Tom Watt, by false pre- tences. The prosecutor being sworn said: Last Thursday week, the prisoner came in my oyster shop, and shouted six plates of oysters. I asked him for the money. He said he was a skipper, and would come back and pay me. He then went away. He came to my shop again last Friday night, and shouted some more oysters for sailors. He told me to put them down to him. He   called me into the back room, and asked me to lend him ten shillings. He said he had no money to pay for the oysters, but he would leave me a watch. He left a watch. He and another man came in again on Satur- day night last. He asked me to let him see the watch and he would pay me. He owed me £1 3s. altogether. I got his watch and held it in my hand. He asked me to give it him to lo...

SHALL DEBTS COURT. THURSDAY, MAY 28,1868. Before Helenus Scott, Esq., P.M. Gardiner v. Brookes. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

SMALL DEBTS COURT. THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1868. Before Helenus Scott, Esq., P.M. Gardiner v. Brookes. This was an action to recover the sum of £3 5s., for work and labour done, by the plaintiff in his professional capacity as a Surveyor. Plaintiff being sworn, said he had performed the work for which he then charged at the defendant's special request. He had seen the defence, which set forth that the work was done in his capacity as City Surveyor to the Corporation. That was not true. The work was done in his private capacity, and had nothing to do with the Corporation work. The charges made were all reasonable. He was quite positive as to his in- structions from the defendant. He said witness was to do the work, and that he would pay him for it, and did not expect me to do private work for him for nothing more than any other man. The defendant was at that time Mayor. He brought witness a drawing and wished him to take certain levels to see how he should build on his property at the corn...

WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

WARATAH.             FOOT RACE.—A foot race took place here on     Saturday evening last, between Daniel Hughes, of Waratah, and John Panton, of Lambton, for   £5 aside. They were to start by mutual consent   if they could get away in half-an-hour's time, but they did not succeed in starting in that time. A good start was afterwards effected — a gun having been fired at the signal for "off." Hughes got   away with the lead, and came in an easy winner by about five yards. He repeatedly turned round in the heat of the contest calling upon his an- tagonist to come on. The distance was one hun- dred yards. MR. BROWN'S COAL TUNNELS. — I have been informed that the miners who have been em- ployed in Brown's tunnels, have struck work a few days ago, owing to the wages being too low.

WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

WALLSEND.           WEATHER.— The weather during the past few days has been very unsettled. On Sunday, it commenced raining early in the day, and con- tinued without intermission till the evening. Monday was a disagreeable day—several heavy     showers having fallen. THE COAL TRADE.— I regret to state that our coal trade, which was in a flourishing state for some time past, has, all at once, become so very dull that it may be said to be at a complete stand-still. The Wallsend pit has not, unfortu- nately, been at work since the 27th ultimo, and the bustle and activity of our town has, conse- quently, ceased, at least, to a considerable ex- tent. Our mining population are a fluctuating people, sometimes only a fortnight in one place and a fortnight in another. Many miners have left here lately for other collieries, where they can be more constantly and, I may say, more consistently employed. Th...

DOUBLE EXECUTION IN BATHURST GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

DOUBLE EXECUTION IN BATHURST GAOL. From the Bathurst Times, May 27. The sentence of death passed upon the two men, Barns and M'Evitt, at the last Assizes, was carried into effect on Tuesday morning, within the precincts of the gaol. At 9 o'clock yesterday morning, Mr. Uhr, deputysheriff, demanded the bodies of the con- victs from the gaoler, and the executioner (Bull) pinioned M'Evitt, whilst Barnes, who was unable to move without his crutches, was allowed to proceed to the foot of the gallows with his arms at liberty. The Rev. Messrs. Sharpe and Lisle were in attendance upon the latter, and the Rev. Father Schastignon ac- companied M'Evitt. The procession passed down the corridor to the court-yard where the gallows was erected, and then the culprits knelt down in prayer at the prisoners' mess- table. Barnes buried his face in his hands and wept convulsively — not seemingly in fear, but with contrition and shame, whilst at the other end of the table M'Evitt knelt erect, with a stoli...
