To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— I feel sorry that, at the late publlo.mceting held in tin! court-house,, Newcastle, to adopt a petition in bohalf of Mr. C'lunu'ur, 1 should hhvc used language calculated to lasceratc the feelings of men who (owing to their absence) had no opportunity of defending Uiemselves. The fact of Mr. Ourrowes smiling when judge Wise pronounced tho sentence bad nothing tc do with the case ; and at any rate, judging charitably, exultation or rankling malignancy might not have had the remotest place in his heart. The expression ' old Kittridge,' whii h has been condemned by others, I condemn myself, as an expression savouring: of contempt for that period of life winch the bible teaches me especially to revere. These apologetic sentences are not wrung from me by any dread of consequences, but simply from a desire to confess a known fault through the same channel by which that fault was first ushered forth to pub lic view. Trusting in your kindness t...

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

To the Editor of the Newcastle Clironicle. Sir— Ai you have expressed a desire to be informed of my proceedings at my home on the island, I have pleasure in informing you that, at 5 p.m, yesterday (Monday) I launched the barge which has been in course of construc tion since October, 1860. She is named the 'Islander, 'and will carry 300 tons ; she is built with colonial timber. Her dimensions are— lengui yo lect, beam W leet, and depth of hold eight feet, and at present draws twelve inches water on the average, namely, eighteen inches in midship and six inches at each end. She is intended for coal and ballast lightering, and being modelled after the form of the London river barges, I trust she will prove herself adapted for the work. My intentions in taking up my residence on the island and engaging in the trade for which this barge and two others built by me (in addition to the Minim, of 450 tons), have hitherto, in a great measure, been defeated by the Government refusing permissio...

To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

' ? To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— I. have taken some pains to decipher Mr. C. W, Williams' letter in your issuo of Saturday, the 27th instant, but must acknowledge myself at fault. Docs he mean that Mr. Chaucer has been too long amongst us ? If so, 1 must say that I ngreo with him there, and if ho docs come ?amongst us again I hope it will bo as nn altered man, not 'with that spirit of vindictivcncss that Mr. Williams holds out, but with one more befitting his calling. Under what, over pretence Mr. Williams got tho signatures, Mr. Held held it for n remission of tho sentence, and the petition was presented by James Hannell, Ksq. Docs Mr. Williams mean thnt Mr. Hannell has injured his (Mr. Williams') good name, for doing good to so worthy a man? Does he mean Air. Chaucer as the worthy man ? If so, why should the worthy man attempt to steal Mr. Williams' good name, and of what use would the good name be to the worthy man ? But who ever heard of a pawnbroker having a g...

MR. CHAUCER AND HIS FRIEND MR. C. W. WILLIAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

MR. CHAUCER ANb HIS FRIEND Mil. C. W. WILLIAMS. We gave insertion in our Saturday's issue to the stupid effusion of Mr. Williams, because he had attached his ' good name' to it, and because we had no desire that any of Mr. Chaucer's friends should have it in their power to allege that they had not had fair play in this respect, as far as the Chronicle was concerned. We might, with very great pro- priety, else have excluded Mr.Williams' com- munication on account of the puerile personal attack it contained on ourselves; but we pre- ferred, in this case, to let things take their natural course, determined to abide the ulti- mate and impartial judgment of the public as to the right and the wrong involved in the question at issue. At the same time, we feel bound to confess, that there accompa- nied this act of apparent magnanimity on our part, a latent consciousness that, to pub- lish it, would be in a measure an act of ven- geance, since the writer would be convicted out of his own mou...

I helped to cut the clothes off her. Dr. Morgan was sent for, and attended her. The accident occurred about 2 o'clock this morning : she died about 10 ...

EXTRAORDINARY PHENOMENON IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

Extraordinary Phenomenon in India. — Syed Abdoollnh, professor of Hindustani,, of University College, London, sends to the Times an extract from a letter he has re- ceived from India, describing, an extraordi- nary fall of large slabs or meteoric stones, preceded and followed by most singular physical convulsions, at a place called Dha- ram Sal, situated in the district of Kangra- north-east of the Punjaub, among the mountains in the lower range south of the Himalayas. The writer says : — ' On the 28th of July, horrible discordant noises rumbled forth from the bowels of the earth, following each other with the utmost rapi- dity. Then succeeded long and loud explo- sions, which gradually decreased in degree and duration. Then came intensely lumi-   nous flames of fire, each flame about 12 feet in length, shooting with extreme velocity from north to south, as though belched forth from the mouth of ordnance of extraordi- nary size and calibre. These again were replaced by ...

THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON'S EXPOSITION OF HIS FOREIGN POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 May 1861

THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON'S EXPO- SITION OF HIS FOREIGN POLICY. A large mass of papers on Italian affairs was laid on Wednesday before the French Senate and the Corps Legislatif, by order of the Emperor. After an historical summnry of the part that the French Government had taken in Italian affairs since the peace of Villafranca, we are told that the annexation of Central Italy, and the formation of a strong power, master of the two slopes of the Alps, ' imposed on France duties towards her self.' 'In carrying aid to Piedmont, the Empe- ror was led by the thought alone of securing the independence of Italy, and of thus closing the Peninsula against the secular rivalries between France and Austria. But in calcu- lating the chances of the war, his Majesty was naturally led to forsee the possibility of important aggrandisements to Piedmont; and when the French Cabinet was questioned on this subject, it did not at all allow its inten- tions to be ignored. In every circumstance, according as ...
