UPPER HUNTER. Since my last thd weather has continued dry — iharp frost at night, and iu general cold, drying, winds during thu day. Thu consequence is, thu ground is us hard us ever. Nevertheless, the larmers are putting thuir sued in tho ground. Should rain nut come soon, it would bu us well in the bags.

THE IRISH CHURCH QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 July 1868
THE IRISH CHURCH QUESTION. The most important subject that has come before the British Purlianieut for very many years is the question of the Established Church of Ireland. We believe that people generally were somewhat startled when Mr. Gladstone introduced his now celebrated proposal for the disendowment of that church. The Conservatives, wuo are con tinually seeing revolutions in every political change which is not introduced by their own friends, were perfectly frantie at the boldness of the proposal j and Mr. Disraeli, from whom more caution and greater com mand of temper might have been expected, has been denouncing the Opposition leader and his followers as a band of robbers, quar relling over their plundfir. The Premier is evidently smarting under the severity of his defeat, lor he seems to have calculated upon a decided victory at the commencement of the debate, however much he might see rea son to- alter this opinion before its close. Heisa-vVj ambitious man, and now that ...

NEW LAMBTON [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 July 1868
NEW LAMBTON. - Really, sir, you must excuse me for not send ing tliis communication in timofor last Tuesday's issue of your valuable journal, but I had quite forgotten that tho Chronicle had becomo a tri weekly. You will think, no doubt, that tho in terest evinced in this instance by me in the wel fare of the Chronicle is but small, but, be that as it may, I can only attribute my forget fulness to one fact — that is, that you have not for the past week been bored with omissions for waut of space. Considerable excitement exists at this place, consequent upon the proposed incorporation of the colliery townships, and various aro the opinions held by tho Commoners in reference to thu abo/e question. It is not my intention to discuss the matter here, as I observed in your journal of last Saturday an intimation that the deputation intend visiting this locality ere long. The sooner the better, as I think the inhabitants here ought to be consulted on tho subject before our neighbours at Lam...

WALLSEND. We have had more excitement here within the past few day* than I remember to have Been for a considerablu time past. First of all there was the incorporation meeting on' Fri day last, which naturally caused a great deal of discussion. Then on tho Monday night follow ing a great sale took place, at Fryar's place. It was lai'L'oly attended, and there was considerable competition. In the evening of tho same day the Rev. Mr. Nairn delivered u lecture in the Presbyterian Church in aid of the Young Men's Christian Association. On Monday and Tuesday evenings the Star Company gave two entertain ments, which considering the slackness of things were well attended. The performances took placo in the Oddfellow's Hall, and were worth witnes sing. Your townsman, Mr. J. D. Laugloy, was expected hero to deliver a lecture, in the Church of England, on the 7th iust., but owing doubt less to some uuavoiaduble and unforeseen circum stance, tho lecture did not uomo oil'.
