To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 11 May 1861

I To the ESBdiSbl' the- Newcastle Chronicle. SinV-Sternesays, ^hey. manage thesoMjiings better in France.' At any rate, I think tug steamboats could.not be managed worse in any port of the world than here. The firm Hint first had the enterprise to get a steaming for New. castle certainly deserves} all support. Uut if a piaster is placed in her who, ' instead of using common civility, is guilty of the grossest abuse to those who emplov- him, and will only tow whom lie pleases, irrespective ot turns, I think it ia time for us, shipmasters, to combine to change the system of nflairs. For instance, during the past week a schooner lay over in the North Channel with her flag flying two days for a steamboat, and then had to get up to tho shoots without one. Again, a vessel came in and brought up in the entrance of the harbour. A resident of New castle having goods on board uninsured, asked the steam boat to tow her in, which was refused, although ho said lie would pay the towage. There is ...

MUNICIPAL RATES ENFORCEMENT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 11 May 1861

MUNICIPAL RATES ENFORCEMENT BILL. The fate of this measure has been decided by the Upper House, in a manner discredit- able to its pretensions find that exalted de- liberative character, it is the interest of such a body at all times to maintain. If their mode of dealing with this bill were to be taken as the standard, by which their excel- lence generally as a deliberative assembly were to be estimated, such conduct would go far to determine the question of a single in- stead of a double chamber — as far, at least, as the higher legislative advantages were con- cerned. The reasons that, under present cir- cumstances, would incline the prudent in fa- vour of a second chamber, are here supplied by their own conduct in evidence against the proposition ; and such demeanour renders still more invidious the carped at distinction, thus left without a difference, of 'Upper and Lower House.' Indeed, the 'iniquitous' attack made on this Hill, and on municipal institu- tions in general, by th...
