FROM A BOOK ABOUT DOCTORS BY J. C. JEFFERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

FROM A BOOK ABOUT DOCTORS BY J. C. JEFFERSON. Books about doctors abound in English literature ; but none of them surpass these amusing volumes. The author has classified and combined most of the old stories on the subject; and he has added many that are -novel nnd authentic, Much of the work, therefore, is new, being, as the author states, ?chiefly derived from sources nut in print — principally manuscript communications. The first chapter is devoted to doctors' canes and wigs — paraphernalia of the medical pro fession that are now obsolete. The cnne or stick he considers to have been the symbol of power, as it is to this day in the East ; the vwig, of wisdom — albeit, the adage that the v teadTgear does not make the sago, is as old \ ?vas the hills. Apropos of tiie stick, very few sohoolboys are aware, according to the author, that when they speak of being ' licked,' they pay homage to the classical Lictors and their bundles of rods (fasces). It is, however, on record, that one of...

(Per favour of the Newcastle Chronicle. ) Mb. -Alexander Flood — Sir— The extraordinary moral courage you have displayed in signing your real name to your letter in last Saturday's Chronicle, must re. ceive every mark of public approbation, and having ad. mitted thus much, and it having disarmed me of all timi dity. I can do no less than follow the exunple. The letter itself is, however, go di.iereut, that, as one of the public to whom you appeal, I may claim a right to ad-l a few words on the subject. You aoncar to he ouite mi ntarmUi. U'l.v your dreadful forebodings are enough to frighten all the old ladies both in and out of their ptttiooats, and nut of their seven senses. I cannot understand why you should I be so painfully impressed at what took place at the late vestry meeting, that is, if the reporter has done his duty by faithfully stating the remarks made by the several speakers. Surely you do not expect a number of persons, however respectable or intelligent, to meet in ...

MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS. As the government of a city is somewhat analogous to the government of a State — on a smaller scale— and since we are endowed   with the privilege of a local parliament, it, requires watching, and occasionally it becomes necessary that its proceedings should be re- viewed, criticised, and condemned whenever its affairs are conducted in a manner, inimical to the general welfare. From that tendency towards degeneracy for which corporate bodies are proverbial, it has been found necessary, in modern times, to reconstruct them, and place   them on a representative basis, as better cal- culated to preserve their integrity, from the   amount of participation thus afforded to the people, in the management on their own affairs. Yet, under this popular form, it often happens that grievous wrong takes place through the apathy of the people themselves. How often   is the sense of the old adage realised which   s...

THE WEATHER AND THE FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

THE WEATHER AND THE FLOOD.   The weather here, since Wednesday, has been fine, al- though on that day the sun, what little we saw of him, looked sickly and overcast. Towards evening a very bril- liant rainbow was seen to rise to the northward, and re- mained visible for a considerable time, with a close, sultry atmosphere, charged with moisture during the night. Thursday morning was ushered in with a strong westerly breeze, which increased to a gale during the day, licking up from our streets and filling the air with clouds of dust, which rendered it a very trying task to have to make your way westward. This dusty phenomena, we take it, would have been a novelty in our neighbouring townships, which it would have been grateful to realise after so long a period of saturating rain. The red water in our harbour brought down with it large masses of debris, on Thursday, and offers such a contrast, in colour, to the green sea water which usually occupies it, that it becomes a ...

LAND SLIP ON THE GREAT NORTHERN LINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

LAND SLIP ON THE GREAT NORTHERN LINE. At half past twelve to-day (Friday) the traffic manager, Mr. Beeston, received a telegram from Maitland inform- ing him that some fifty feet of the embankment of the line at Wallace's Creek, near the High-street station, had given way, producing a chasm in the roadway extending partly across the line, leaving the sleepers and metal self-support- ing on that side of the creek next the river. The half past two up-train, on arriving at the Newcastle side of the spot,   set down her passengers waiting there the usual time for starting on the down trip, arriving here in good time and all safe. In the meantime, a gang of men had been set on   to fill in the breach, and by the time the train left, had thrown in some hundred tons of stuff, and will be occupied during the night in completing the repairs to the roadway, which, it is anticipated, will be passable for the half-past seven up-train tomorrow (Saturday) morning. &a...

A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER. A telegram reached Newcastle this day (Friday) inti- mating that a storm was raging in Sydney at about twelve o'clock to-day, and coming up from the southward. About two o'clock indications of a storm in a southerly direction were observed here, and soon after a sharp driving shower came up with a squall of wind. It lasted but for a short time and veered off to the westward. In the evening the air became nipping cold, and more like snow to the senses than cold, as if foreboding a snow storm, or that the wind had proceeded from the vicinity of icebergs. After dark, and up to the time of going to press, the east was cloudy and threatening, with occasional vivid flashes of lightning, while the wind had veered round and was blowing fresh from the south-west.

THE FLOODS IN THE HUNTER DISTRICT. (Abridged from On Mailland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

THE FLOODS IN THE HUNTER DISTRICT. (Abridged from the Maitland Mercury.) ' We appear at Maitland to have had a very narrow escape from a heavy flood, up to the time of writing this ( Wed- nesday) morning. The rise on Monday (as reported in Tues- day's issue) continued till it reached about eight feet by the evening, and it nearly reached nineteen feet before it became stationary, about eight o'clock. It then commenced falling slowly, and by seven o'clock on Tuesday, had fallen nearly two feet. There had been, however, a good deal of rain during the night, and a general feeling of dread and un- certainty prevailed, increased by the telegraph news from Singleton that a second rise had commenced there on Mon- day evening, and that a considerable fresh was anticipated from the Goulburn waters.   At Maitland the river commenced a second rise before nine o'clock on Tuesday morning, and by two o'clock that afternoon, it had reached the highest level of the previous evening.

THE LOWER HUNTER ELECTORATE MR. A. W. SCOTTS CONDUCT. A meeting of the electors was held on the 26th April at the Court-house, Raymond Terrace, instead of Mr. Holdstock's hotel, as advertised, calling upon   A. W. Scott, Esq., to resign his seat as the represent-     tive of the Lower Hunter. Owing to the incle- mency of the weather, and a heavy thunder shower about the time of meeting, there was but a small   attendance, 25 persons only being present. After     waiting some time past the hour fixed for the meet- ing, Mr. R. Jacob proposed an adjournment, the wea-     ther being so bad, it was almost impossible for   persons to attend. This proposal being overruled,   the proceedings commenced.   Mr. Pulver being called to the chair, briefly ex-   plained the nature of the meeting, and called on Mr, R.

REVIEW.     THE BUSHRANGERS. Illustrating the early days of Van Dieman's Land. BY JAMES BONWICK. (From the Australian Home Companion, April 20lh, 1861.) The title of this book is one which, in the   Australian colonies, has often struck dread into the hearts of the outlying settler or the belated traveller. Many tales of the wild deeds of these lawless desparadoes yet linger amongst us ; and he must be phlegmatic in- deed whose pulse does not beat higher at their recital. At present, however, our pur- pose is not so much with the outlaws of this colony, as with those of the island colony of Tasmania. Passing over some entertaining chapters grotesquely headed "Female Bolters," "the     Early Escapes," the "Cattle Stealers," we   take a few extracts personal to the bush- rangers ; referring our readers to the work itself for detailed particulars. First on the black catalogue is Michael IIowe. He was the capt...
