WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 27 June 1868
WALLSEND. The township of Plattsburg has opened out a field for a great discussion, by tho surface of that township giving way and making large holes,', rendering some of the houses untenant able This is caused by the Co-operative Coal Company excavating the coal from beneath it. I am informed that there is a litigation.casa pen ding for tho -purpose of seeing whether the Company or A. Kenrick, Esq., will have to be responsible for the damage that has already been done, and remunerate the parties who hare suf fered. The Co-operative Colliery has been working re markably well for some timo, which has caused the manager to be besieged by miners seeking employment. They have orders on tho books i for 5,000 tons at present. ?

TOMAGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 27 June 1868
TOMAGO. The Earthquake.— This terrifiic phenomenon was felt in Tomago about twelve o'clock on Thurs day night. Some say it was a few minutes be fore twelve, and others say it was a few minutes after twelve ; but those who were wide awake at the time, say they felt the shock at twelve o'clock exactly. It must be the difference in the time about the time the shock was felt. There is also differences of opinion as to the time it lasted, and the direction it came from. I was not in Tomago myself at the time, so I cannot speak of it from experience, but a good many say it lusted full sixty seconds, and the majority of those I was speaking to about the earthquake positively assert that it came. from a south or south-east direction. I, myself, was in Newcastle at the time tho shock was felt there, and my impression was that it came from a west or north-westerly direction. These are variations that, I think, no person can account for. 1 have been told by several persons that the wall of Mrs...

We have now the largest and best &nbsp; Public School out of Sydney erected for us, and although we have four public-houses, it is gratifying to think we have also a good many places &nbsp; of worship in our midst. We have not a Church of England built as yet ; but as the ground is laid out for it, and a good many of the inhabitants have come out handsomely with donations &nbsp; towards it, we may expect to see one erected in a short time.

LATE TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. MUDGEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 June 1868
LATE TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. From the Herald and Empire. MUDGEE. Intelligence has come in here of a very singu lar death, that has occurred at Maitland Bur. It is reported to bo a suicide, but there are grave 'doubts whether it bo not a case of murdor. On Tuesday last, close to tho hcuiio of the murder of the late Mr. Leo, tlie body of a Chinaman was found suspended by tho neck fro'm a tree, the head being nearly severed from the body. On searching the body, a document was found in one of tho pockets of the trousers, declaring that he had made away with himself because of the remorse ho had experienced nt being tho parpo trator of heinous crimes which hud been attribu ted to his countrymen ; and becuusu— ' Joss had callod him.' From thu fact that tho drop of tho rope is much too short to allow tho full of tho body to cause tho semi-decapitation which this Chinaman has suflered, it is surmised that the man has been murdered by the Chinese, in ordur to divert suspicion from the Mong...
OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 June 1868
OURSELVES. To-day we present our readers with the first number of the Chronicle in its new form. Henceforth, and as long as the public of this district are willing to encourage us in our enterprise, we shall issue this journal three times a week. The reasons that have promp ted us to this course of action are many. Let us state a few of them. In the first place we are convinced that the step we are taking will be recognised as an important feature in the progress of the town! How many of us in our past experience can call to mind some instance wherein we have judged of the position, social, political, and commercial, of one or other community, solely and simply by the look of its news paper, la it not a mark-of a certain sta bility attained — a certain stand-point of power reached, when some rising township can support its local journal ?
