COLLIERY DISASTERS IN THE NORTH. WE extract the following from the Newcastle on-Tyne Chronicle : ON June 18, 1885, an explosion took place at one of Mr. Russell's collieries, at Wallsend, known by the name of the Church Pit, or Roussell's Old Wallsend, by which twenty-six ii~"n and- seventy-fivei boys :lost their lives, leaving twenty-four widows and eighty-three -hildren to lament their fate. The number of work people einployed in this colliery was about 200, one hundred and five of whom were in the mine at the time of the eiplosion. The colliery was inspected in the morning by the dinder-veiwer, when it was considered to be perfectly safe; and four "overman" and " deputies' who were among the suffefers, had been acquainted with the pit for thirty years. The catastrophe was made known to the batiksmen by a considerable report, which they spoke of as being like an earthquake, accompanied by a rushing of choke-damp to the mouth of the shaflt, bringing up some-of the pitmen's clothes,...

BURWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
BURWOOD. . ThoMAs and John Matthews, father and son, wre both badly burnt to-day by ~ai explosiou of gas. They are driving a bord on the of thd liw 'pit.; and 'from what I can learn, they must have struck; some. sort of blower, where the gas has forced its way up from the other underlying seams of coal, ,Both were working wiii their shirts on. of'the result would, no doubt, have been more disastrous. Such an occurrence as the above is, as far as I can hear, unprecedented in the history of the Borehole. There is another building being erected at Glebe for the sale of the " spduktiv flooid." 'The landlord need have? q? fear?,is jto the patronage he will receive; for, accordint to the increase of those who like their " beah?,"in a short time a brewery.will be needed'in this neighbourhood to keep the supply'equal to the demand. August 5, 1874.
HAMILTON. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
HAMILTON. FRoxenquiry I am informed that the Mesars. Mathews, who were severely burnt in the Borehole new pit on Wednesday last, are progressing as favourably as can be expented. They are much biurned about the face and arms. The son is much the worse, the father being saved to a great extent by having on a long.aleaxed shirt. S ome .people who know no better attribute the accident to the explo sion of the powder contained in 'the shot. Any one who knows anything about mining knows that this is a sheer impossibility, as the men were nine or tea yards back from the face when they were burned. It appears that when the men lit up the shot, which was in the fast end of the bord, they ran back about nine or ten yards, and stooped down behind the slack, and according to one of their state ments, they never heard the shot go off, but felt the explosion, which putot o their lights; This is the first explosion of firo damp which has occurred in thesolllry, ba as they are now going into new g...

Latest District News. LAMBTON. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
Latest Dist~riot News. (IROM OUR VARIOUS CORRsSPOWDENTS.) LAMBTON. I AM sorry to have to report the death of Mrs. Robert Wright, who died on Sunday night last, from consumption. Mrs. Wright has been gradually sinkirg ever since her husband died, about three years ago, from injuries received in the pit. She leaves four little children to mourn their loss, who are solely dependant upon her brother, Mr. James John son, who has supported the family ever since the husband's death. On Saturday night last some boys were playing round a burning log, on the Common age, one of them, thinking it was not burninag fast enough, procured a flask of gunpowder, and threw into the end of the log. The powder did not ignite as soon as they would like, they went up to look in the log to see the reason, when it exploded and burned three boys named respectively Mathews, Fenwick, and Sneddon. Dr..Hill attended, and found that they were severely burned about the face and hands. On Saturday afternoon a boy, ...
