LETTER TO THE EDITOR. TOMAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL. Tn the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 June 1868

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. TOMAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. SIR— in recent issues of the Sydney journals is given a list of schools from which certificates have been with- drawn, and the numbers in attendance. I give the ave- rage of this school, as published by Mr. Parkes, and also the real averages, as taken from the shool's records. This school is also marked CE for some purpose or other, and I know positively, that though the certificate has been withdrawn, an agreement has been made by the Council with a teacher for twelve months. What mo- tives prompted the changing of our Public School to CE or the engagement of a teacher for a year, or the sub- stitution of false returns, I leave the public to infer. The school was always " vested." Mr. Parkcs returns : Tomago (CE), 1867 — 1st quarter, 17.5; 2nd quarter, 18 ; 3rd quarter, 21 ; 4th quarter, 24.3. 1868— 1st quarter, 19.5.

OUR WEST MAITLAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 June 1868

OUR WEST MAITLAND LETTER. There is really very little news to communicate   from this town at present ; but I observe that the correspondents of newspapers, both here and in the mother country, write about things in general, when they have nothing particular to say about affairs in their own district. This is a very convenient method, and I mean to adopt it also, whenever I find myself at a loss for subjects of a local character on which to offer comments. I am very glad to see that you are about to   publish the Chronicle thrice a week; and I trust the public will show their appreciation of your spirit and enterprise, by increased support, both by way of subscriptions and advertisements. Your East Maitland correspondent would like to see you come out with a daily issue, and so would I, but, in the meantime, you take the wiser and more cautious plan of trying a tri-weekly issue in the meantime. I have no doubt that, in the course of a few years, both Newcas...

DIABOLICAL ATTEMPT TO SHOOT A YOUNG LADY AT   TOMAGO.   The usually quiet village of Tomago, on the     Hunter-River, was thrown into a state of the         most intense and feverish excitement late on     Thursday night last, by the circulation of a re-     port that a most diabolical and fiendish attempt   had been made to take the life of the Tomago   postmistress, a young lady named Miss Mary     Gordon, aged about twenty-one yours. The     event happening near midnight, on the day     named, many persons were not aware of it until the following (yesterday) morning, and then all manner of reports were flying about.

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 June 1868

LOCAL ITEMS. DEATH OF MR. HICKINBOTHAM.—It will be per- ceived by an obituary notice in the present issue, that Mr. George Hickinbotham, of Hunter- street, expired at his residence on Thursday night last. The report of Mr. Hickinbotham's death yesterday morning was hardly credited by some, so sudden and unexpected was it. Only a week ago the deceased gentleman appeared in his usual health and strength, while to-day his re- mains will be consigned to their last resting-place in the cold tomb. His death was brought about by a severe attack of the prevailing fever, and terminated fatally shortly before ten o'clock on the above-mentioned night. The deceased was forty years of age, and was greatly respected by a wide circle of friends. His funeral is to take place this afternoon, at half-past three o'clock. This is another warning to us all that " in the midst of life we are in death." FIRE BRIGADE.— On Thursday evening-last, the annual general meeting of the Newcastle Volunteer Fire Bri...

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1868. Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M., and J.

Beveridge let go of the prisoner to go back to the other man. The prisoner immedi- ately turned round and took hold of me by the beard. He was very violent. We both fell to the ground, he still holding me by the beard. We got up and again closed. We fell the second time, prisoner on the top of me. He was pulled oft me, I believe, by Constable...

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 1868. Before Helenus Scott, Esq., P. M. Resisting the Police. The prisoner (Thompson) was again placed in the dock on the charge preferred against him on the previous day. Mr. Mullen again appeared for the defence. The subjoined additional evidence was adduced. Henry Rouse recollected a transaction at eleven o'clock at night, between Constable Griffin, another con- stable, and a man in their custody. Witness saw a lot of people opposite to Williams's public-house, and went down to see what was the matter. He saw a man (not the prisoner) in the custody of two policemen. He then went up to two other constables, Griffin being one with another man in their custody. The man was holding back as if unwilling to go to the lockup. He kept saying " What have I done, what do you want me to go to the watch-house for. I have committed no assault." In the struggle the man fell to the ground and one of the policemen. When they got up witness saw Constable Griffin hnd his staff. ...

I should say that there were between three and four hundred persons present. The entire audience seemed highly delighted with the performance. Too much praise cannot be given to the ladies and gentlemen who kindly volunteered their services for so good a cause. Also, the Waratah band, which I ought not to forget. They per- formed their part of the programme well, and played in excellent style. Mr. Fanning presided at the piano, and, as usual, acquitted himself in a manner that pleased everybody. His abilities as a musician are so well known that further praise would be superfluous. The chair was ably filled by Mr. Turton, who gave great...
