RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 6 June 1868

RAYMOND TERRACE. QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. — Monday, the 25th, was   observed as a general holiday, all the stores (one   excepted) being closed. No sports of any kind was held during the day ; the town seemed quite deserted. In the evening a ball and supper was held at the Steam Packet Inn, at which up-   wards of 200 were present, and seemed to enjoy themselves throughout the night ; dancing was kept up until an early hour on Tuesday morning. NARROW ESCAPE. — On Tuesday morning, at five o'clock, two men were employed on one of the barges in stoning the river bank at Miller's Forest, and had a narrow escape from drowing. From the particulars that I can glean, it appears that the vessel was secured to the river's bank on the night previous, and as the tide rose the vessel drifted on the bank, becoming stationary until the tide receded, when the barge went   over sideways. Both men were asleep at the time. You may imagine they were rather s...

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

SCONE.       There is no such thing as news in this district. The weather is the only topic of conversation. The drought still continues. For this last week it has been threatening rain, but none has fallen ; should it not come soon the consequences will   be most disastrous to our farmers, few of whom have as yet begun ploughing, and it is now time the seed was in the ground. I am not aware that a single acre is as yet sown. There has now been four bad years in succession, and this looks as if it would be the worst of all. It costs about £2 10s. for every acre of wheat they grow, and this last season I am certain they did not take £2 15s. of an acre, so that the margin for profit is very small ; in short, not a farmer in the dis- trict made shepherd's wages, and they had noth- ing but the wheat to depend on, as there was neither maize or potatoes in the district last sea- son. Those who indulge in the latter luxury (for such they ...

OUR EAST MAITLAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868

OUR EAST MAITLAND LETTER. I much regret that an error should have crept   into my last communication witli reference to an accident which I stated had befallen Mr. John Graney, jun., of the Hunter River Hotel. The sufferer, I have since learned, was a son of Mr. E. D. Day, the Police Magistrate, and is now, I am glad to say, almost recovered. I had the ac- count I sent you from an eye-witness of the affair, but he, in some unaccountable manner,   had mistaken Mr. Day for Mr. Graney. A gloom was cast over the town on Saturday morning last by the intelligence of the awfully sudden, death of Mr. Ryan Brennan, who was much respected by a large circle of friends.   An accident of a very painful nature happened to Mr. Morrisett, the Superintendent of Police, on Friday last, at Aberglasslyn. He had been out shooting, and was driving home in his buggy when it came on to rain, and he got out to get his poncho from under the seat. In order to do so it wa...

THE LATE SHOOTING CASE AT TOMAGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868

THE TATE SHOOTING CASE AT TOMAGO. Further enquiries, made since the publica- tion of our issue of Saturday last, have con- firmed the leading facts then given in connec- tion with the late extraordinary attempt to shoot Miss Mary Gordon, of Tomago, on the night of the 4th inst. The full details of the occurrence have been forwarded to us by a correspondent, but as his account is not quite complete, we purpose supplementing his com- munication by a brief statement of our own. It appears that, for some little time before Miss Gordon went outside the house, the at- tention of all inside had been drawn to the loud barking of the dogs, and to a noise as of sticks and heavy pieces of wood being thrown against the house. The night being very clear and fine, Miss Gordon walked from the verandah at the back of the house, into the yard, where, as mentioned in the first account, she spoke to the dogs, calling on them to lie quiet. Just about this time she noticed two men standing close to the ...

DISTRICT NEWS. LARGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868

DISTRICT NEWS. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS. LARGS.         A few evenings ago, whilst resting my weary bones in my little sitting-room, after a hard day's work, I took up your contemporary, the Mercury with an eager desire to enjoy a few minutes' in- tellectual treat, but I was doomed to disappoint- ment. The first part of the broad sheet that I happened to alight upon was the leading article, but finding it a dull, heavy, and monotonous piece of composition, destitute of point or talent, and consequently not calculated to instruct or edify anybody, I soon laid the paper aside, and began to peruse another colonial journal with which a friend had recently favoured me. In glancing over this print I noticed a communica- tion, bearing the somewhat unusual heading, "From our fireside correspondent," and from curiosity, "dived" into it at once. I found it a   racy production, and also discovered that this domestic correspond...

LOCAL ITEMS. FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR. HICKINBOTHAM.— If we required any evidence of the estimation in which the late Mr. George Hiokinbotham was held by the citizens of Newcastle, it was abundantly afforded by the large and respectable gathering of people that attended his funeral, which took place on Saturday afternoon last. Persons from all quarters, and of all ranks, creeds, and shades of opinion, were present, and helped to swell the long procession which followed the remains of the de- ceased gentleman to their last resting-place, in Christ- church burial-ground. The deceased being a member of the Volunteer Artillery Corps, a large number of volunteers followed, but the members of the artillery   only were in uniform. The Amateur band was in atten-   dance, and played the '' Dead march in Saul." Besides being a volunteer, the deceased was connected with the orders of Freemasons and Oddfellows, and a large num- ber of both these orders walked in the proc...

PATERSON.   The most important consideration amongst us of late has been the weather, which has been exceedingly dry, preventing our settlers from proceeding with their farming operations — no rain of any consequence having fallen since the flood in February, and fears were entertained that the dry weather would extend until the time for wheatsowing was entirely passed over. But these fears have at length been allayed, and we have been favoured with some refreshing showers, quite sufficient to meet the require- ments of the farmers, and, we have no doubt, all will be busily engaged getting in their wheat, as now there is no time to lose. The rain com- menced last Saturday morning, and continued to fall at intervals until Tuesday evening, when it cleared off, and it has since remained fine. This bountiful supply of rain, although too late to cause the grass to spring, will have a bene- ficial effect upon all other vegetation, and once more raise the hopes of our settlers...
