SINGULAR AND MELANCHOLY FATALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

SINGULAR AND MELANCHOLY FATALITY. The scriptural saying so often evoked 'That whilst in life, we are in the midst of death,' has been fearfully and solomnly realised during the Christmas wreck in the waters of the Hunter River, and has been the cause to some of con- verting ' the house of mirth into the house of mourning. Within the week, betwen this and Morpeth, there has been no less than five persons drowned. One, we have learned, at Morpeth, in attempting to cross the river with a bullook team, was attended with fatal results, and should operate as a warning to those fool-hardy persons who will dare providence and provoke death in mere wantonness. We have about another as having occurred at Raymond Terrace but the particulars of which we were unable to ascertain. Another which occurred at Tomago to the engine   driver of the Aquarius, steam. tug, belonging to Captain Williamson's colliery. On Wednesday, at Newcastle, we had no less than three deaths from drowning, a...

CORNER'S INQUF [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

CORONER'S INQUEST. The coroner, Dr. Knaggs, held ????? 29th     instant, at the Caledonian Hotel/ on viewing the body of a man named Patrick Gallagher. From the evidence it appears that the deceased had been seen by a man named Sydney Smith; quite naked, sitting on the wharf close to the water. Witness happened to look another way for a short time, and upon turning round again, found that the deceased had disappeared ; witness hastened to the spot where he saw deceased, but before reaching the place he heard & cry, which he did not particularly notice, as he thought it may have proceeded from boys that had been bathing; and when witness arrived at the spot where the deceased was seen, he saw some clothes and not seeing any one about the wharf or in the water, thought somebody was drowned,; witness and another man named Thomas Sydney then went in search of the deceased, and commenced div- ing, when witness succeeded in bringing it ashore.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. FIRE AT SHOALHAVEN.--From a private letter     we learn that five stacks of wheat were destroyed by fire on the Berry's Estate, Woolangatta, Shoalhaven, a few days ago. The fire took place in the early part of the day. The wheat was of last year's growth,   and, having been submerged in one of the late floods, had been taken down and restacked. It is, there- fore, surprised that the cause of the fire was sponta- neous combustion. — Illawarra Mercury, Dec. 28. HEAVY CROPS. — The Farm and Garden states that Mr. R. Smith, of Halloran Hill, has reaped 292 bushels of wheat from thirteen acres of land, or 22½ bushels to the acre; that Major O'Halloran has measured off 90¼ bushels from two acres of his crop ; and that Mr. Hogarth, of Gawler Plains, has reaped 7000 bushels from 400 acres, the same land only yielding 1800 bushels last year. — S.

newcastle police. SATURDAY. (Before Mr. Scott, P.M., and Mr. Seaver. J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

Newcastle Police. SATURDAY. (Before Mr. Scott. P.M., and Mr. Seaver .J.P.) Henry Green, a young man, resident at Mosquito Island, was brought before the bench as a person of unsound mind, and unfit to be at large. — Thomas Green, the father of the young man, deposed that his son was about 23 years of age and that during the last 13 years he had been subject to fits, and could not be said to have been in his right mind for three hours together on any day during that period. That on Monday last, he (the father) had occasion to rebuke him about his work, and upon his requesting him to do it better, he replied that he would not, and immediately commenced an attack upon him (deponent), and hurt his right foot rather severely in the scuffle which ensued. He had, on previous occasions, done the same thing ; and not more than a fortnight ago, had threatened to split his (deponent's) head open with a large stick. . On Wednesday, he walked about with a knife in his hand, and, in a state of ex...

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.—SCROFULA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 12 January 1861

Holloway's Ointment and Pillb. — Scrofula. Since art first tried to relieve and cure the maladies of mankind, this fearful disease has defied all reme dial measures, and remorselessly hurled through the same sad paths to eternity the innocent victims of the unmerited tortures of the sins of their forefathers. Thinks to the inventor of these cleansing and repa rative remedies, the most heavily afflicted are no longer doomed to run a course so sorrowful, the re lentless hand of scrofula these wonderful medica ments arrest soon after it has threatened beauty with despoliation. Holloway's corrective ointment and mild alterative pills unclasp the baneful grasp of scro fula, and with unerring certainty enable the descend ant to cast out the reproachful infirmities inherited from his ancestors.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Death op the Rev. Dr Fletchbr.— This emi nent Non-conformist minister died, after a painful illness, on Sundty afternoon, at his residence at En field. He will long be remembered as the author ot many devotional works, but more especially for the remarkable success of his addresses to the young. The deceased was in the 76th \ear of his age.

THE POPE'S ALLOCUTION AMENDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 12 January 1861

THE POPE'd ALLOCUTION AMENDED. The more zealous, if the leu charitable, of Pro testants are accustomed to give his Holiness the Pope ? very Ugly name. They call him that which Othello, in bis rage and jealousy, palled Dejdeinona. The Roman Pontiff is, in their theology, the Scarlet Social Evil of Babylon. This language they apply to the Papal abstraction — for there is an abstract Pope as well as pa abstract Lord Mayor. They do not intend the terms which they hold to he convertible with his Holiness to denote any individual occupant sf the Papal chair. No offence to Pio Nono person ally is meant by an upp^ation which is merely levelled at bis ofHcialvvharucter. Personally, indeed, that appellation is a uulecism. Pope Joan only, of all Popes that were overhyarthof, was qualified, aud deserved to be leaded vwith that Scriptural but strong expression. BujtPop'o Jena is a fiction, as great a fiction as Pope Pgtery In Wisequenco of the pro-' mulgation of that fiction it is soy. that part...

The Newcastle Volunteers and tub Sydney ?6*4W«airKATio.w.— The members of the volunteer artil. lery corps arc very desirous of being present at the grand review in Sydney, on the 19th instant, providing they can induce a complement of their limited number sufficient to man two guns, to avail themselves of the opportunity. After Thursday evening's parade, seventeen of tlieir num ber consented to go, and there is a reasonable prospect of the purpose being effected. With regard to the rifleB no decided step has, up to the present time, been taken, but it is in contemplation to hold a special meeting for that pur pose. It is considered that, if fifty could be mustered, that it would be a fair representation of the military force of the city.

Elsewhere will bo found reported a case- of outrage, unparalleled for its audacity, and one which might bare resulted in the perpetration of the most heinous of crimes, and that, too, in the midst of a populous city, on board a vessel lying alongside its wharves. We allude, of course, to the affair which took place on board the Dutch barque, on Tuesday night last; and .desire to direct more especial attention to this matter, because it affords a fit ting opportunity of renewing the demand so repeatedly made for the appointment of a water police force at this port. Not that we base this demand on this case alone, but as an absolute requirement for the general protection of life and property, as well as the prevention of those injuries continually being inflicted on the har bour, and which operate detrimentally both on its utility and its character as a place of com merce, and of safety for the shipping who fre quent it.
