THE TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT THE FERNDALE COLLIERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 January 1868

THE TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT THE FEKNDALE COLLIERY. Another' of those dreadful catastrophes, Rays the Times of Nov. 12, which of late have appear ed to succeed each other with unaccustomed lapi dity is now reported from South Wales. An explosion in' a coalmine has suddenly sent we cannot say how many souls into eternity.

It is never known exactly how many men may ne ia me pio, »uu even if the numbers in the pit could be certified, there is always a chance, though unhappily a slender one, that some of them1 may be released alive. All we can say in the present case is, that perhaps even the frightful hurricane in the West Indies has not been more deadly in its effects. The Femdale Colliery— the scene of this ap palling calamity — is situated in the Rhondda Valley, in the heart of the mining districts of Glamorganshire, but it is not very accessible, being so...
