AMERICA.—DISRUPTION OF THE UNION. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 April 1861

AMERICA.— DISRUPTION OF THE UNION. AU hope of an amicable settlement of the unhappy difference in America is at an end ; chaos is spread ing over the country — State after State has either seceded from the Union, or proposed some impracti cable compromise, which only enhances the difficulty of tbe situation. One fact alone is clear, and that is that the hour for an amicable arrangement has gone by. The seceding States have already formed them selves into an Independent Confederation, adopted a Provisional Constitution, and elected a President. There are consequently at this moment two federal Unions. The accession of Mr. Lincoln to 'office on the 2nd of next month, is looked forward to with universal anxiety. Washington is expected to be the scene of a violent struggle on the occasion, and preparations are making on both sides to turn it to account. The actual situation at present is this : Seven States, namely South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and T...

SUPERNATURAL VISITATIONS.. ' He started up with more of fear Than if an armed host were near, God of my fathers, what is here.' Byron't Siege of Corinth. There is, perhaps, no subject upon which so much learned disquisition has been expend' ed, so much argument resorted to, and so great a variety of opinions promulgated, as upon that of supernatural appearances Mrs. Orovr, in her very ingeuious work entitled 'The Night Side of Nature,' has treated this ' vexed question' with much apparent candour. She has availed herself of nearly all the authenticated stories, narratives, and records that have been handed down to us during the past century, for the purpose of exhibiting at one view, the nature of tho evidence upon which so many conflicting theories hnve been founded. In the publi cation of the subjoined facts, I am influenced only by a desire to place upon record that ?which I believe to have happened.

A. in the chair. Dr. Cumming who selected for his subject ' The Destiny of England in the Prophetic Record, on rising was received with great applause. The reverend lecturer commenced by wishing his audience to understand that he was not a prophet's son. He did not in tend to predict the future ; lie tried to show what inspired prophets had written, not to foretell what it would need an inspired pro phet now to be able to do. He believed that England was not to go down amid the wreck of nations ; he believed that she was to be tho Israel and Judea of Europe, and that God had too great a design for her to accomplish and too sublime a mission for her to fulfil, ever to allow that land, described by one now passed away as ' First flower of the earth, first gem of the sea,' to perish amidst the awful c...

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. air— ror some .months past, two poor orphan children have been funning about our streets in a most wretched state— the girl With scarcely though clothing to cover her .nakedness, and the boy very little better. They are both children of colour, but in a Christian community like ours surely something might be done for these poor neglected orphan children. They run about our streets .and wharves, and no one seems to notice or care about them. Perhaps a few ladies who have spare lime will take the matter up nnd subscribe such a sum as will place them in the school in Sydney until- they are able to learn a trade.— 1- am, &c, April 167 .
