RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 June 1868
RAYMOND TERRACE. The rains with which we have lately been fa voured havo greatly improvod the growing crops. At Miller's Forest, Nelson's Plains, Sealiam, tho Holbw Tree, and Tomago, the wheat and lu cerne look remarkably well. I scarcely ever re member seeing tho district in so luxuriant a state at this timo of the year as it is at present. Should tho remainder of the season turn out favourably, excellent crops may be expected. Tho farmers havo had many adversities ts contend with dur ing the past two orthreo years, but from present aspect of affairs there is a prospect of thoir meet ing with success ere long, at least to some extent. Those who havo lost their all by floods, will, however, bo suflorers for some time to como ; it will take them two or three years' prosperity to recover themselves. There is a profusion of ve getables in tho district, and also up the Williams. I have never seen finer cabbages and carrots than thoso recently sent to tho Newcastle Markets. Wo are rapidl...

NEWCASTLE MARKETS. (Corrected up to Yesterday.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 June 1868
'?:??? NEWCASTLE MARKETS. (Corrected' up to Yesterday. ) Owing to the inclemency of the weather business bos beon somewhat dull during tho week. Few wholesale orders of any magnitude have been oxocuted, whilst the retail trade has been unusually slaok. Wero the weatbpr to. clear up and remain permanently propitious the pre sent temporary stagnation would, of course, be super ceded by a healthy commercial re-action. The flour market is not bo firm as it has been during tue previous ioruugni, owing, is is oeneveu to an anuci Sated ohange in prices. Stocks are sufficient for present emand, but in. all probability there will be a decrease of Bupply ere long, unless fresh importations arrive from South America and the adjoining colonies. Maize is in fair request, but the stocks tro low. Holders of this cereal on tho Hunter, tho Paterson, and the Williams are disinclined to sell at lowor figures than 2s6dto2a9d.

SABBATH DESECRATION AT THE PATERSON. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 20 June 1868
SABBATH DE.SKCUATION AT THE PATERSON. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir — Tho disclosures made in lust Wednesday's Chron icle, by your Putarson correspondent, in reference to tho various acts of Sabbath desecration committed at that township, are certainly apulliug — nay, revolting in the extreme. I urn not onu of those impulsive and capricious beings who are either on the i/iii viee for imaginary grievances, or who is fond of dabbling in real ones, unless a sense of duty obligates me to do so. Nor am I, at any time, disposed to propagate reports that cay bo con sidered prejmlici.il to my neighbour — tho golden rule laid down ill Matthew VII. 12. bv Him who 'snoke as never mnn spnko,' being, I trust, my motto. There is, however, ' n time for everything,' as the wise man says, and 1 think the time has now fully arrived for such as havo the spiritual and temporal welfare of the commu nity at heart, to speak out, and, if necessary, to reprovo sharply thoso who eithwr positi...

LOCAL 1T£MS. Horses tor New Zealand.— A mob of broken and unbroken horses, numbering about sixty, were yesterday shipped on board tho barque Bengal, now loading here for Now Zealand. They wero recently purchased at an auction sale, in Maitlnnd, ami were, we understand, bred on well-known stations in the interior. Some of them looked very fine animals.

Uobertson, of Mel bourne, a pamphlet, with tho abovo heading, and which is simply a reprint of an article in the Westminster Review for April 1808.
