THE IDLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 4 July 1868

THE IDLER. If there is one thing more irritating than another to honest, industrious men, it is the spectacle of purposeless, apathetic, semi-idiotic laziness. To behold, in the midst of bustlers, a class of slouching hand-in-pneket drones, is enough to raise the bile of the easiest tempered muii iu the world. There is nothing equal to him ns an irritant. It is not that the fact of these Dconlo dointr nothing is in itself distrust ing — not that because others have to work for their bread and butter, and they manage to' get it for nothing, that the door is opened to complaint. It is because these lounging idlers so olFensivply piirade their laziness; because you cannot step across the street but you meet one or more ; because you cannot go into a public oflioe, but you will see some members of tho tribe ; because, in short, their cool, ob trusive do-nothingness is constantly shown up, us though iu insolent contrast to your own perspiring stato. They jump up, these idlers, iu most un...

"A SCHOOL OF ARTS FOR NEWCASTLE." [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 4 July 1868

'A SCHOOL OF ARTS FOR NEWCASTLE.' The fact that in a somewhat hasty perusal of the new Municipalities' Act the other day we overlookVd a clause conferring the power unon a MunicipaLCouncil of establishing a School of Arts, brings us back thus toon to a subject we had almost placed on one side as a matter in which the active energies of our fellow-citizens could not be aroused ; but we catch a gleam of hope from a nevr quarter, and return to the charge with re doubled vigour. We find that it is within the scope of our civic authorities' multifarious means for benefiting the -people who elect them to make' provisions, not only for free libraries, but also for Schools of Arts and seeing that an insitution of the latter class is likely to be far more popular in Newcastle than one of the former, we shall resuscitate a bygone watchword and raise the cry ; once' more of ' a School . of. Arts for Newcastle !' If we can but see a few zealous workers in the good cause rallying round the stand...

SUGARLOAF. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 4 July 1868

i ?.SUGARLOAF. Great alarm -'wns created hero on Thursday night, 13th Juno, at about three minutes before midnight, by the violent shook of an earthquake. The account respecting this unusual phenomenon as given by different persons, are vory conflicting, which, of cour.se, is not to be wondered at, consi dering the sudden and unceremonious manner of waking people out of their slumbers. Tho un certain and terrific shaking of the earth was dis tiuctly folt by most persons, and described by persons standing on their feet as if tho earth rose tu meet them. The vibration seemed to travel from east to west, and tho noiso resembled a heavy roll of distant thunder. Tho timo which tho earthquake lasted may bo estimated ut about half a minute, although the vibration continued for somo timo after. Soino very strange conclu sions were arrived at by some persons thus suddenly aroused from sleep. Some insisted that tho house must bo falling ; others, that some persons must be conceal ed under the...

This I do, not merely by way of offering the usual compli ? ments toa friund on his entoring upon a new enter prise or experiment, but because you have greatly improved tlio appearance of your journal. The paper, I mean thu material, is really beautiful ; and, although comparisons are said to be odious, I cannot help noticing its groat superiority over tho paper on which the Mercury and most of your other contemporaries are printed. Tho lettor-press ton is so clear that it is a pluusuro to ': read ; and tho new .heading possesses thu two - qualities, which, in my opinion, are most neces '?.: sary, being neat and legible without being com monplace.
