SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 June 1868

SINGLETON. . JV0111. the Time*. Tho weather is very beautiful, but too dry to bo high in favour. Yesterday morning the the precious herbage was white with froat. Mr. Joseph Simmons, sen., has left Singleton after a residence amongst us of eighteen months. Mr. Simmons was not successful in business while in Singleton, but ho was a very useful member of society. Almost every question of interest and importance to'tho town which had agitated our community, Mr. Simmons took a very active part in discussing, and his wellox pressed opinions were generally ruceivod with attention and consideration. We have no doubt but that we express the opinions of all parties when we state that we have lost an active and in telligent townsman.

WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 30 June 1868

WEST MAITLAND. (From an occasional correspondent. J Tub Late Earthquake. — The morning after the earthquake .1 was in my garden, when the train from Singleton was running over the via duct between Stoney Creuk and West Maitland. Thu noise made by it struck me at once as closely — but in a less degree — resembling the rusning noise of tlie wind, tlio deep groan of the coming tornado, and tlie tremulous disturbances of tho eurth and air on the previous night. - The noise which 1 described as having been heard by me on the verandah of the house was occasioned by the sudden withdrawal in quick succession of tlie nails of the flooring as 1 afterwards disco vered. The Raymond Terrace correspondent of tho Maitland Mercury, of the 23rd inst.-, says : ' He heard a noise at the smith angle of the home which seemed as if caused by some enormous ex ternal pressure forcing iii* the walls, and crumpling up the shingles of the roof.'

After some wrangling, Mrs. Hunter said she would go and have somo more liquor, and, jumping off the platform, walked across tho rails towards the Burwood Hotel, which stands on the opposite Bide- of the line arid*, some iifty yards from it.
