WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
WARATAH. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PUBLIC SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.—As your Waratah &nbsp; &nbsp; correspondent thought the programme of this entertain- ment too long to notice seriatim, perhaps you will be kind enough to insert a short report from another cor- respondent, as I feel that full justice has not been done to those that deserved it. The audience numbered nearly 300, which number fully came up to the expecta- tions of the local Board, and the entire proceeds amoun- ted to £24— a sum the Board scarcely expected to realise. &nbsp; The concert was opened at eight o'clock, by the chair- man (Mr. R. Turton) calling on the band to play an overture, which it did in a style not to be met with out of Sydney, and which certainly did credit to the late conductor, Mr. E. Fanning. The progress this band is making is highly creditable to them. The vocal part commenced with " Hail, Smiling Morn," by Unio...
MINMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
MINMI. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; After a few days cold drilling rain, the warn rays of the sun is welcome, this morning was very frosty, every- thing is going on quiet in our neighbourhood. Business rather dull. I heard to-day that a, man who came to work here as a miner, died this morning at his lodgings. I am not at present acquainted with the particulars, but will let you know when I write again. June 4, 1868. &nbsp;
WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
WALLSEND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The weather, to all appearance, is a little more settled we have not been visited with rain since I last wrote. On Wednesday, the 3rd instant, the Rev. Mr. Nairn delivered an address in the Presbyterian church, to a number of young men, who have formed themselves into a Young Men's Christian Association, or Mutual Improvement class. This is a thing that was greatly needed in Wallsend, and it will no doubt occupy the attention of many of our young men, and lead them in a direction that will prove beneficial both for their pre- sent and future welfare. An accident, I am happy to say, not of a serious nature, befell a man named Donnet, who got one of his &nbsp; fingers taken off by the waggons. Trade is still dull at Wallsend. The Co-operative Coal mine seems to be working well.
HEXHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
HEXHAM. &nbsp; &nbsp; The inhabitants of Upper Hexham complain bitterly that the post-office is not centrally situated, and that, in consequence, they suffer much inconvenience in postal matters. The greater portion of the inhabitants being located at the upper township, it is only fair and reason- able that the post-office should be nearer to them than it is. I think it would be desirable to petition the Post- master-General on the subject, for I find that nothing can be obtained from Government without application ; indeed it often happens that much agitation is neces- sary in such matters. Well then, let those who are dis- affected in regard to the post-office, agitate vigorously till their grievance is redressed. The late rains have thoroughly saturated the ground in this district, and the grass is springing up nicely. Feed for cattle is therefore plentiful. Our coalshoots are busily at work, which is a good sign of the progress the neighbouring mines are making....

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1869. Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M. Obscene Language. William Thomas, in custody, was charged with using obscene language in Newcomen-street, on the 30th of May. He was convicted and fined 6d. The smallness &nbsp; of the fine was on account of the prisoner having been some time in the lockup. Being Illegally on Premises. Charles Augustus Whitmore was charged with being illegally on the promises of one John Anderson, for an unlawful purpose, on the 2nd inst. The prisoner was discharged with a caution. James Tongue, brought up on the same charge, was dealt with in a similar way. Vagrancy.

MAITLAND QUARTER SESSIONS. SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1868. Rubbery with Violence. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
MAITLAND &nbsp; QUARTER SESSIONS. From our Special Correspondent. SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1868. &nbsp; &nbsp; Robbery with Violence. &nbsp; John Joyce and Robert Burns pleaded not guilty to an information charging them with having, on the 9th May, at Newcastle, feloniously assaulted one Andrew Johnson, and robbed him of the sum of 8s. and a knife. The prisoners were undefended. Mr. Foster briefly addressed the jury, and called the following witnesses :— Sergeant Peter Conway, Margaret Murphy, Andrew Johnson, Joseph Milthorpe, and Charles Wilson. The evidence for the Crown went to show that, on the night of the 9th of May, the witness (Margaret Murphy) was in company with the prisoners and another woman, when Andrew Johnson (who is a Norwegian sailor), came up to them, and they went together into the Albion Hotel, where Johnson "shouted." Murphy and Burns then went out, and in a few minutes were joined by Johnson and Joyce. There were several other persons p...
THE CONROY'S GAP MURDERS. EXECUTION OF MUNDAY, ALIAS COLLINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 10 June 1868
THE CONROY'S GAP MURDERS. EXECUTION OF MUNDAY, ALIAS COLLINS. From the Goulburn Herald. On Tuesday morning, at nine o'clock, Wil- liam Munday, alias Collins, who had been con- victed at the last Goulburn assizes, of the murder of John Conroy, at Conroy's Gap, near Yass, on the 18th March last, and who, at the &nbsp; same time, had also murdered four other per- sons, underwent the extreme penalty of the law, within the walls of Goulburn prison. Since his condemnation the prisoner had been attended by the Rev. W. Sowerby, of the Church of England, to which denomina- tion the prisoner professes to belong, and by the Rev. W. Ross, Presbyterian. He was also visited once by the Bishop of Goulburn, but their ministrations appeared to have no effect on him. On receiving the first visit from the clergyman he asked if that was the game, and adding that he would have a smoke, filled his pipe and puffed away. Although when he was apprehended he had admitted his guilt without any attempt...

I havo not as yet heard the final state of the poll, but there can be no doubt as to Mr. Bell's return. At tho nomination on the 2nd, Mr. Diiigar did not ap pear, but vvas represented by Mr. Abbot, who proposed him, and made a rather long speech, out ot which you could take no;lung.

TOMAGO. THE LATE SHOOTING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 June 1868
r o Jf a go. TUH LATH SHOOT1NU CASK. In your issue of the 30th May, you reported a yarn you had with some person calling himself ' Big Boy.' ? In that conversation either your self or the boy, I forget which, spoke of Toinago as the '. renowned villago.' Truly it has bocomu very renowned lately, and I am sorry to say that it i3 not for the many good deeds done in it that Tomago is so renowned, but quite tho opposito, as the outrage committed on Thursday night the 4th instant will show, and which has been re ported in the last issue of the Chronicle, and of which outrage I propose to give you a detailed account presently. ButToinago is not altogether devoid of good ; tor there are some good people in Tcmago yet. There was a time when Tomago was a quiet and peaceable village, but alas ! those times are gone. Many of its oldest and most worthy residents have left Tomago and otliera not so creditable have come, and hence' the re sult. If I knew who the ' Big Boy' was, and wero to meet h...

LAMBTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 June 1868
LA MB TO lY. ? Although Jjiimbton has not been much made the subject of newspaper correspondence of late, it is by no moans an insignificant township, but, on the contrary, a thriving villago. Within .the last fifteen months it has mado wonderful pro gress—such progress us I can only compare to American enterprise, where towns of considerable magnitude spring up, in the comparative short space of six or eight months. Wo can now boast of five or six stores, fohr inns, several butcher ing establishments, a Public School, a School of Arts, aud two or three chapuls. Our streets are as yet tu a somuwnac primitive, state, uut invy will probably undergo the necessary repairs ere I6ng. Good ,streots( are, of course, es3ontial to every township, and without them no small in convenience is experienced. All the coalmines in this neighbourhood are actively at work, and b'ttsiness in conso(juonco, is brisk, It is not so, I 'am sorry to say, at Wall Nond, owing to the present slackness ill tlie c...
