THE HANLEY EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 23 February 1867

THE HANLEY EXPLOSI0N. The second colliery explosion, which took place at Hanley, about four miles from Tun stall, although not so calamitous as the Barnsley catastrophe, is the most serious that has yet occurred in the North Staffordshire coal-field. The Talk-o'-the-Hill Colliery de scended to a depth of 300 yards, and a 6eam VI Kila ctMi UCHX JHW5JJ uvi^'. *T^«*\rf'»-»**, fuv ?»«*«.- ing of which was known to be dangerous. Up to Thursday, December|13, however, the care taken had been successful. Everything went ou as usual until the noon of that day. Then the people on the bank and those living within half a mile of the pit felt the earth disturbed as if by an earthquake, and heard a smothered report, the meaning of which was too well understood. Shortly after flames rushed furiously up one of the shafts of the new pit, and the roofs of the cottages, the hedgerows, and the roads were covered with a black coat ing of soot. Large masses of coal and ncorched and blackened timber were ...

BEE-KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 March 1867

BEE-KEEPING. The following correspondence on this sub ject appeared in a late number of the Queens - lander, aud may be found interesting to bee keepers : — I have frequently noticed the fact that the drones are very numerous in the bee-hives iu this colony, and they must con sume a vast deal of the stores so industriously brought in by others ; but it bad not struck mf» ift flRRKt. in UptstmTinrr i\?rict* *i-Jj*m fliAv became worse than useless. I can understand, however, that such a course would be bene ficial, and shall make the experiment, as it may probably assist in the prevention of swarming. But there is one portion of your correspondent's communication I cannot en dorse, viz=, that the ' enemies of bees are less troublesome here than in any otfcr country, which is sought to be established by the fact that here the bees do not become dor- j mant, and thus are always prepared to give battle to the foe. So far as my experience goes, I find the enemies of bees far more numerous...

A LONG SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 March 1867

A LONG SWIM. [From Chambers's Journal.] 4 And, by Joye it was. Here -yere nine or tea of us, wet to the skin, sitting on the keel jof a capsized boat, full tjvo miles from store, with no possibility of mating way either forwards or backwards. In addition to all this, the bay swarmed with sharks, and the night — which comes on with a rush out there, you know — was just falling, so that there was no chance of being seen and picked up. If ( we were forced to remain in this desperately ( uncomfortable situatiqn all night, there was . ,erery probability that some one, overcome by , sleep, would be slipping off his unpleasant , perch into the sea ; and it was quite certain , that the sharks, attracted by such a promising feast, would be cruising about on all sides, , waiting, like dqgs, for the crumbs that fall . from their masters' tables. But what was to j , bo done ? The only remedy was one that it made me shudder to think of that some one , should undertake to swim tvro miles, in defi...

A CHRISTMAS DINNER IN THE FEDERAL ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 March 1867

A CHRISTMAS DINNER IN THE FEDERAL ARMY. 1 Splendid Christmas Day !' said our captain to me as I stood at his tent door a little before daylight, waiting for orders to rouse the men for the day's march. * It is a clear morning, captain,1 1 answered, ' and promises to be a fine day so far as the weather goes, and that is some consolation to fellows thai can't get anything to eat.' Our army was on the retreat. General Grant had made an unsuccessful nttempt to march on Vicksburg overland. Half of our journey naa uecn accompusnea successiuuy, ss in all probability would have been the remainder — we should have fought a battle at Jackson, shut Pemberton and his men up in their works, and quietly sat down in front of the place, and waited until starvation drove the Confederates to surrender — just, in fact, as afterwards came to pass, when Grant reached Vicksburg by way of Grand Gulf. Fate, however, ordained ctherwise. A cowardly and foolish officer was placed in command of a very importan...
