To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— I have no doubt but you will publish in your next issue as much as possible, if not in full, Mr. James1 letter and the leader of the Empire of Saturday last on the Norna case. However, be this as it may, I will, with your per mission, occupy a small space for a few remarks on it. To say they have created a great sensation is only to uso a common.placc expression. We should rather say the pub lic are horrified. If proved to bo true (and an important part of it has been proved to bo so) the steps taken reflect the greatest credit on their authors. Their statements should bs emblazoned in letters of gold for the benefit of future ages, and should be printed for the execration and disgust of the maritime community, not by quires only, but by reams, for circulation in every port where the Eng lish tongue is known. To bo silent in such cases is to be criminal. To be silent is to convey the idea that tho con duct of these wretches is common to...

(Per favor of the Newcastle Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

(Per favor of the Newcastle Chronicle.) . Mn. Ponderer — Sir — I find in your letters of the 23rd you hare addressed one letter to tiro deists, and two letters to one ' infidel.' A lady on seeing her sweetheart walk out with another, would call him an infidel. A member from any church that has seceded from the holy and apostolic church of Rome, is an heretic and infidel without the pale of the church, and impossible he can enter into the kingdom of Heaven. Perhaps you use it as a term of reproach, or perhaps 'tis because I simply differ in opinion from you that you style me infidel ; if so, the name inl'ulcl you can take to yourself, for, as a matter of course, you differ from me, and in my view you are an infidel, as I practice what I profess, and live up to that opinion. I am not aware that there is any infidelity in this; but when I see a class of men that lay by honest labour, cover themselves with a cloak, become paupers, live, accumulate property, and funds at the bank, nay, f...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. S IE— Your heavy correspondent ' Ponderer1 has thought proper to reproduce in one of your columns a short para graph of mine in reply to one James Cann, though for what purpose I cannot tell, seeing that he makes no further reference to it in his series of letters. An he has thus kindly noticed my small production by quoting nearly the whole of it, politeness requires that I should return the coinnliment. 'Ponderer' denounces 'Student' an a caviller because he gives it as his opinion that St. Paul expected that the second coming of Christ would happen during his lifetime. Further on, he says, ' by comparing scripture with scripture, anyone who will understand can see that St. Paul had no idea that day would happen during his life time.' Now this, I contend, is not quite so evident as ' Ponderer' seems to think, for on referring to the chapters in the Gospels which he indicates, I find that Christ ex pected that his second com...

ESCAPE OF SEVENTEEN COCKATOO ISLAND CONVICTS FROM DARLINGHURST GAOL. On Monday last, about two o'clock in the after upon information was received that a number of con Jcti had been seen issuing from a hole in the wall of «e Darlinghurst gaol. Upon enquiry, it turned out I ,( fiat no leas than seventeen of these desperadoes had {dually obtained their liberty in this manner. Mr. inspector Reid was, it seems, returning from his lunch when he noticed a number of persona in tho Jtuon dress outside the wall.

(Per favour of the Newcastle Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

(Per favour of the Newcastle Chronicle.) Sir — I beg to ask some professors of the merciful reli gion of Christianity, how it comes to be their duty to do all in their power to add to troubles of a brother in adver sity ? If a friend in need is a friend indeed, and if such is seldom to be found, it cannot fail to be a matter of wonder that such a friend should be found among thoso who make but little pretension to superior sanctity. It seems i.islnon ablc, when a man is suffering reproach, how innocently so. ever he may be exposed to this ' scourge of the tongue,' for summer friends and Pharisaic pietists to give him as many kicks as they can to drive him down. Good Sama ritans are few, but as JohuWroc remarks 'there are plenty ready to put a wounded man on an ugly beast character of their own mauufacture,' perhaps to leave him worse wounded than they found him.— 1 am, &c, W. ?

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir — As the anonymous traduccr — whose mean conduct baffles description— has again vented his spleen on me without provocation, permit me, once for all, to inform him that, in Siam, they have a proverb exactly applicable to his cur-like propensity for snarling at people's heels, viz., ' if a cur bites at you, don't bite him back again.' 1 detest backbiting and all attempts to injure character as unmanly, unchristian, and mean. The rtuber who stops and robs you on the highway is a more honourable man than the sly injurer of character ; and if the epistles of your correspon dent are fair indices to his heart's thoughts, few men of benevolent minds would associate with him in any philan thropic measure whatever. In fine, if all advocates of the ' Maine Liquor Law' had the same disposition to defame their neighbours as my snake-like assailant has shown, few would long relish the'r society. Should your correspon dent wish to elicit something new...

ELECTRO-BIOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 2 March 1861

ELECTRO-SlOLOGY. A.T the court-house, on Tuesday evening last, in accordance with previous announcement, professor Hansen proceeded to exhibit ceitain phenomena in connection with this branch of science. From whatever cause, it happened the audience was exceedingly.lnnited. Still, as the evening wore oil, considerable accessions were made to it, and the entertainment finally proceeded, amidst much and reiterated annlause. The nrol'essor commenced with a brief sketch of the history of the science, from its first initiation, in 1815-6, till its second appearance in America, a few years afterwards. It was not, he said, until the year 1851, that any attempt was made to introduce it into Australia, under the auspices of Messrs. Stone, Fisk, and others. From that period, to within the last two or three years, it would seem to have been almost at a standstill, but subsequently several lecturers had occasionally stepped forward, for the purpose of rescuing it from oblivion. Numerous and amu...

FEARFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION AT "RISCA," SOUTH WALES. ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SIX LIVES LOST! [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 9 March 1861

FEARFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION AT 'RISCA,' SOUTH WALES. ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SIX LIVES LOST ! From a statement contained in a Newport journal, entitled the Star of Gwenl, we learn that a fearful colliery explosion took place oo Saturday, December 8th, 1860, in* which not less than one hundred and thirty-six persons are believed to hare rerisbed. Tbe scene of the dis aster was an extensive coal mine, known as the ' Black Vein Pit,' the properly of tbe Risca coal mine company, held by them on lease from Lord Tredegar. Tbe precise, cause of tbe cala mity will, probably, never be known, although its immediate and active agent has kng been the terror of miners under the familiar appella tion of ' 6 re dimp.' It appears, however, that the numbers who suffered from tbe actual ex plosion itself, areas nothing in comparison with those who subsequently perished by the otill more destructive agency of 'choke damp,' a foul and noxious vapour generated by the com bustion. It would seem that the ab...

THE SUSPENSION OF OPERATIONS AT THE TUNNELS. In our notice of tVis affair in uui- last issue, we briefly referred to the; nllpged cause of dispute. It appears, from subsequent inlbrmntion, that we were not strictly correct in tho statement made, but for any inaccuracy in which, wo protest, we were not to blame. Being more or less at the mercy of two parties with regard to nni'ticulnH of the kind, we experience no little difficulty, sometimes, in arriving at truth between them. In this casu, our information was derived, in the first instance, from a source which has some pre tensions to infallibility, and in the second plnce from a source with an til most equal amount of pretension, andwith only a shade of difference in their accuracy. Updn enquiry, we ha\ e found that neither arq im maculate in this respect, and can vundily conceive how bach party, labouring under their own peculiar infiriMties, might not Imve perceived at thc moment, the discrepancies to which their idiosyncracies ...
