[From another Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 January 1868
[From another Correspondent.') The Coal Tkadb. — It is pleading to be able once more to tell you that our Wallseud trade is again something more cheering than it has boon of late. I trust the favorable change may contiuue and increase a thousand fold, as the district is m u bad state on account of the continued dullness of our only source of revenue. Our manager and his men are very busy at the new 0. pit getting it ready for rais ing coal. It is much to be hoped tlmt_ this additional pit will prove a source of profit to tho Company, because it' it is that, it must necesj sanly benefit the miners, and through them the whole community. The manager's splen did new brick- house and offices are now complete ; the painters aro putting the finishing stroke on it, and tho building will bo ready ior occupation in a short time. Mr. George Yoomans, of Newcastle, is the contractor for tho work, and the manner in which he has performed it has, I believe, given great satis faction. The Viaduct. ...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 January 1868
GENERAL NEWS. Discovery of Human Remains at Wombo. — Some slight information, with reference to the discovery of the human remains at Wombo, has reached us from a highly respectable authority. It appears that, about thirty years ago, a hawker, travelling with Ids cart and stock-in-trade, and accompanied by his wife und two children, passed through this district towards Wombo, where he and his little family were known to settle for n. time. '?' They were, however, suddenly missed, along with their goods. As this was then thought somewhat suspicious, tho police searched in all quarters for them, without finding any trace of the itinerant traders, and nothing to this day has ever been hem-d with respect tn them. It is prntty well known that, about the time of the disappear ance of the above parties, a number of very dar ing Government men were employed in erecting the old Cockfighter's Bridge, noar the place, and as it has been distinctly proved that a pick or some like instrument had ...
