LATEST INTELLIGENCE. FROM GREVILLE'S TELEGRAM COMPANY. SYDNEY—Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; FROM GREVILLE'S TELEGRAM COMPANY. SYDNEY— Monday. &nbsp; The English mail arrived at Adelaide on Satur- day afternoon. The news of most importance to the colonies is, that wool declined at the November sales to the extent of twopence per Ib., but afterwards rallied a little. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The resolution of the Government to limit the debates in the Assembly in consequence of the pro- tracted opposition offered to the proposed vote of credit is to be considered this evening. It is rumoured that an amendment will be moved to con- fine the restriction to questions of Supply. A stormy debate may be anticipated. Most of the members are in town. The Reception Committee sent to H.R.H. Prince Alfred some time ago, a programme for his approval of the work cut out for him in this colony. H.R.H. considered the programme too extensive, and has requested the Committee to shorte...
LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
LOCAL ITEMS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT AT LAMBTON.--A miner named &nbsp; William Adamson yesterday met with a dreadful accident whilst at work in the Lambton colliery. It appears that a large place of coal fell upon the unfortunate man, and crushed him in the abdomen in a fearful manner. Dr. Pierce was promptly in attendance and did all that was possible under the circumstances, but he has very little hope of the poor fellow's recovery. &nbsp; VISIT OF THE VOLUNTEERS TO SYDNEY. -- The members of the Volunteer Artillery, No. 3 Battery, have drawn up a requisition addressed to Captain M'Pherson, for presenta- tion to the proper authorities in Sydney, asking that they &nbsp; may be permitted to visit Sydney on Monday next, so as to &nbsp; be in time to welcome the Prince on his arrival in Port Jackson. It is thought that the request will be acceded to. THE LATE DREADFUL ACCIDENT AT MINMI.--We were &am...
DEATH OF MR. W. IRWIN FROM EXHAUSTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
DEATH OF MR. W. IRWIN FROM EXHAUSTION. A correspondent at the Narran river, writing on the 1st January, furnishes the Mercury of yesterday with the following account of the sad death of Mr. William Irwin, an old and respected resident of West Maitland, and the father of our &nbsp; &nbsp; own fellow-townsman, Dr. William Irwin of Lake Macquarie Road. A. magisterial inquiry took place yesterday, at Mr. Gideon's, the Narran Inn, touching the melancholy death of William Irwin, Esq., late of &nbsp; West Maitland, which took place, it is supposed, about Christmas-Day, from exhaustion and want of water. It appears that the unfortunate gentle- man, with a friend, had left the Wollombi, in- tending to join the family circle on the Narran, and were endeavouring to reach the station of Henry Crothers, Esq., his son-in-law, when the unlooked for circumstance took place. After leaving Earl's inn on the Barwin, the horses began to fail ; on arriving within a few miles of t...
DISTRICT NEWS. THE BOREHOLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
DISTRICT NEWS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE BOREHOLE. PRESBYTERIAN SERVICES.--It is with much plea- &nbsp; &nbsp; sure that I announce that the Presbyterians have &nbsp; reverted to their original plan regarding the minis- tration of the Gospel in this place. The strictures made by me some few weeks since have had the desired effect, for which we are all very thankful — another triumph, Mr. Editor, of tho power of the Press. The Rev. G. L. Nairn preached at the church on Sunday evening ; the sermon was an excellent one, and I should certainly make some eulogistic remarks upon it if I did not know how thoroughly the pulpit ministration of this gentleman are appre- ciated all through the Newcastle district. His talents as a preacher are unquestionable. All that I ask is that the people muster strong whenever Mr. &nbsp; Nairn is going to preach, which I hear is...
WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
WALLSEND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MINER'S MEETING.--Pursuant to notice, a public &nbsp; &nbsp; meeting was held on Tuesday evening, the 8th in- stant, near Mr. M'Kay's store, which is situated about the centre of the township. The object of the meeting was to take into consideration the urgent necessity which exists at the present time for having a man belonging to the miners stationed ou the weigh screen, to see that none of their coal is thrown away along with the brasses which may come up the pit in the skips about to be weighed. But a conscience ill at ease drew Drs. Gilder aud Ran- ken to the spot, the former feeling sure that his con- duct was about to be canvassed, and the latter as Dr. Gilder's backer up. This is the natural presumption, as he could scarcely have had business of his own there, he having been expected from his post at &nbsp; Lambton something like a week previously. These &nbsp...
WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 15 January 1868
WEST MAITLAND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; From the Mercury. WEST MAITLAND BRIDGE.— Since our last report of the works at the new bridge, we observe that the diving operations have been so far successful that very nearly the whole of the iron in the bed, of the river has been discovered, and it is expected that the services of the diver may be dispensed with in the course of a few days. One of the land piers on the Bolwarra side is finished ready to receive the abutments and friction rollers. The cylinder, also on the Bolwarra side, which we mentioned as having been driven with a weight of nearly one hundred tons, has had the weight removed, and is now ready to receive the cap. The corresponding cylinder will shortly be weighted in a similar manner. ANNIVERSARY REGATTA OF 1868. A meeting of &nbsp; the committee for this regatta was held at Brown's Exchange Hotel, High-street, on Thursday evening. Pr...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY FROM NOV. 26TH TO DEC, 7TH. The Duke of Montrose explained the postal contract with the P. and O. Company. He says the Brindisi route is not adopted because the pre- sent railway communication is not efficient. The &nbsp; steamers are to call at Messina instead of Malta, thus saving twenty-four hours. Postage is increased 3d. per half ounce. The American Congress met and the Judicial Committee report in favour of the impeachment of President Johnson. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The House of Commons voted two millions for the Abyssinian expedition. It was passed after a protracted debate, as Lord Stanley's speech in July last was held to have inducted the belief that no expedition was immediately intended, and it is now found that preliminary stops have been taken. Lord Stanley vindicated the course pur- sued by the Government, and stated that the expedition was not finally resolved upon till after the close of the last session. The £2,000...
