UNITED STATES. New York, December 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 5 February 1868
UNITED STATES. New York, December 16. The resolution for the impeachment of the President lias been defeated in the House of Representatives by 108 to 57. A resolution of censure upon the President, introduced by Senator Drake, of Missouri, was under discussion in the House, but would in all probability be rejected. The Radicals hat e met in caucus, in Washing ton, and adopted a resolution that 'they will take no step backward.' The Times, in commenting on the message of President Johnson, says : — ' The message ahowB that Mr. Johnson has learned nothing. He tran scends himself in imprudence. He regards his office as absolute sovereigns do their prerogatives. He has forfeited all respect. It is hard to say where the hope of the people lies between And rew Johnson on the one side, and Thaddeus Stevens on the other.' General Grant is likely to be nominated for the Presidency. There appears to be no likelihood that exSecre tary Stanton will be restored to his position at the head oi th...

THE FENIANS. The Fenian excitement in England and Ireland ia at fever heat, and the greatest alarm prevails. On the 12th inst., the Clerkenwell gaol in London was blown up with gunpowder, and three persons killed and forty seriously injured, and it was ex pected that Colonel Kelly, the rescued Fenian in Manchester, had some hand in the matter. The English newspapers have joined in a regular hue against all the members of the Fenian Brother hood, which haa only served to increase the gene ral excitement and alarm. In London, battalions of regular troops, to the number of six thousand, men, are kept constantly under aru.ia, to assist the polioe in maintaining order and suppressing any Fenian demonstration. — It was thought aud hoped that the Fenians would cease all active attempts ngninst lawjxicl order, in consequence of the uni versal lujrrojsind indignation caused by the disas trous attempt on Clerkenwell gaol. Large rewards have been offered by the Government for the dis covery an...
GENERAL SUMMARY. London, Dec. 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 5 February 1868
GENERAL SUMMARY. London. Dec. 15. It has been definitely ascertained that the European Conference plan proposed by the Emperor Napoleon on the Roman question has failed. The assemblage was to have taken place in Munich on the 9th inst., but some difficulty was experienced in the diplomatic correspondence be fore the day arrived. Paris was then spoken of as the place of meet ing; the form of representation was changed, but the same day adhered to. .Despatches have been received in ijonaon trom Massowah, which report that the British Abyssi nian expedition has advanced a considerable dis tance into the interior of the country; but at last accounts the troops were suffering from scarcity of water. A telegram from Bombay gives a rumour that King Theodore, of Abyssinia, has ordered the English prisoners in. his custody to be executed. This, however, is not believed.. In the House of Peers, on tho 7th of Dec., Earl Mayo made a short speech, in which he deplored the bad taste and evil effe...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE LATE MR. ADAMSON. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 5 February 1868
LETTERS TO TH E EDITOR. THE LATE MR. ADAMSON. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— Your Wallsend correspondent, writing on the fatal accident at Lambton colliery, January 4th, goes on to show, beyond all doubt, that the late William Adamson was an' ignorant man on religious subjects. Now, sir, it is a truth that your would-be great correspondent is not able to dis pute, that the deceased wus a man who was respected by all who knew him, not only for his intelligence as a Christian, but one who was well informed on any subject that came before him, and as a charitable man the deceased was no mean example, for he neve^ refused to contribute to any onn who rnicht be afflicted or in want bv anv other means : he has been known to send from his own table viotuals to children who were in want, and olothiug from his own ward robe to the aged and infirm. In conclusion, I beg to tell your correspondent, that it would have beat Dr. Johnson or any other great man who has studied what i...

The particulars,, as they have reached ub, are as follows :— . It appears that ?when the down mail of Mon day had reached within eight miles of Tam worth, a bushranger, supposed to be Thunderbolt, rode up to the driver, William O'Dell, and inquired of him who he had got inside. There was one passenger seated in the inside of the coach at the time, and O'Dell answered, 'The guard.' . On hearing this reply, Thunderbolt appeared fora time to fight shy, for he fell into the rear of the coach, and fired a shot. Not finding his fire re turned, as he expected, he evidently interpreted it as a ruse upon the part of the driver, and rode up a ...
