LETTER TO THE EDITOR. SONS OF TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. SONS OF TEMPERANCE. SIR —In the columns of the Newcastle Standard of May 18th, there appeared a letter from the pen of one who professes to feel aggrieved at the conduct of the Day-Dawn Division, No. 5, Sons of Temperance" of this city. As a member of that society, I feel it my duty, with your permission, to offer a few words in reply to   our friend ''who knows the facts.' In the first para- graph of his letter, our friend states that his name hav- ing been put to the vote, to the disgust and surprise of the majority of the members present, he was rejected. Now, I would ask our friend what the majority of the members were disgusted and surprised at? Simply at   the result of one of their own rules—a rule which our friend states in the second paragraph of his letter, the Oddfellows, Druids, and Foresters would be ashamed of, and I take it for granted that owe friend would also be ashamed of it. Now, what does, this amount to? Simply th...

MONDAY, MAY 20, 1867. Before H. Scott, Esq.,P.M., and J. Haunell, Esq., J.P. Breach of the Navigable Waters Act [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

MONDAY, MAY 20, 1867.   Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M., and J. Hannell, Esq., J.P. Breach of the Navigable Waters Act. Hugh Gilmore appeared, on remand, to answer a sum- mons charging him with the above offence. Mr. Lipscomb appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Wallace for the defence. Mr. Bouhle, ballast-master, said that, on the night of the day named in the information, he was rowing up the harbour, and on approaching the brig Nil Despe- randum, and when at some little distance from it, he saw stone ballast being discharged from the brig into the Government lighter Powerful. He also saw some more thrown over when he had got almost up to the vessel. In cross-examination Mr. Bouhle said he had always seen Gilmore in charge of the lighter, and he appeared to be the master of her. Constable Griffiths said he recollected the 9th of May. He was in a boat with Mr. Bouhle on that night. He saw some ballast being discharged from the Nil Despe- randum, brig. The ballast was bein...

TUESDAY, MAY 21. 1867. Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M., and J. Hannell, Esq., J.P. Being of Unsound Mind. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1867. Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M., and J. Hannell, Esq., J.P. Being of Unsound Mind. John Pellow, carpenter, was brought before the court, in custody, a complaint having been laid against him by his wife, to the effect, that he was of unsound mind and unfit to be at large. Elizabeth Pellow said she was the wife of the man before the court. She had been married eighteen years. For the last ten years he had been growing weaker in the head. Witness had heard that he received a wound in the head before he was married to her, and she thought that had something to do with his present con- dition. He had suffered much from nervous irritation— at times he was very irritable. Latterly he had been worse. He was quiet sometimes for a week or ten days, and then he would become very violent in his manner. On Friday last he was suffering from great irritation, and he took a razor in his hand and threatened to cut his throat with it. Every summer her husband ap- peared to have gon...

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

LOCAL ITEMS. EXCURSION TRAINS.— We beg to draw the special at- tention of the public to a typographical error, which crept into the advertisement of the excursion trains on the Great Northern Railway, on Friday next. The fare be- tween Maitland and Newcastle was printed as 1s. 2d., in- stead of 1s. 9d., the latter sum being the lowest ever charged for the journey between the two towns. We refer our readers to the advertisement itself for full particulars respecting the time at which the extra trains start. A GENEROUS ACTION. — Mr. Richard Dines, of Ham- bledon Hill, near Singleton, has most generously pre- sented valuable gifts to three of the public institutions of the country. Having been successful at the Rand- wick Autumn Race Meeting in carrying off the Austra- lian Jockey Club Produce Stakes with his fine chesnut colt, Glencoe, by Lord of the Hills, dam Queen of Clubs, by Cossack, and the Maiden Plate with Hambledon Hill, same sire, Mr. Dines has charitably given a cheque for ...

WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

WEST MAITLAND. From Yesterday's Mercury.   DETERMINED ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE.—Alice   Waters was charged, at the West Maitland police court, yesterday, with an attempt to commit suicide under the following oircumstances, as shown by the evidence of John Martin, railway guard, and Francis Alcock, painter, of Newcastle: — It appears that the train for Newcastle was at the High-street station about thirty five minutes past four o'clock on Saturday afternoon, when Mrs. Waters was observed to be on the platform               looking into the carriages, and she asked Mr.   Martin if he had seen her husband. Martin re-     piled that he had not, but shortly after he saw   the husband come up to the train with two of   the children. He was assisting them into the train, when Mrs. Waters came up, caught hold of one o...

DISTRICT NEWS. WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

DISTRICT NEWS.     WARATAH. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. The following items of Waratah news were unavoidably held over from Saturday's issue of the Chronicle : — Lest your Wallsend correspondent should again forget, we beg to tell him that the matter of forming a volunteer corps at Waratah fell through for reasons best known to ourselves; they were never enrolled, or any application made to enrol them, and so never became a force at all, and the more's the pity. The spare time we have had lately at our disposal would have enabled us to have gone through such an efficient course of drill and exercise, that if the corps had been formed, we are convinced that by the present time it would have been in a position to claim the free passage to Sydney on the Queen's birthday. We don't despair yet in   seeing a volunteer corps got up at some of the Collieries in Northumberland, but whether it shall be Waratah or Wallsend this deponent sayeth not. In another...

PARADING GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

PARADING GROUND I really think, Mr. Editor, that of your cor- respondents I am always the worst off for news ; however, what little I can collect from time to time shall be sent you for publication. One day last week, a daughter of Mr. Lavis, who has resided here for some time, was unfor- tunately bitten by a snake. Being fully ten miles from any of the medical faculty, means were used to prevent the poison from circulat- ing in the blood, until a physician's skill was   brought into operation, who soon put an end to all fear of any evil consequences arising from the bite. We have been lately visited with an abun- dance of rain, which, I think, will supply our uses, for at least a month. The swamps are full of water, but not so full of birds as I could wish. Game is certainly rather scarce. Why the local board of our public school have not been appointed is a puzzle to me. Surely something will or ought to be done in the matter. BAND OF HOPE. — This society held its usu...

MINMI. PRESENTATION TO MR. EDWARD PARKIN.— [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

MINMI. PRESENTATION TO MR. EDWARD PARKIN. — A very interesting ceremony recently took place in our township, which your readers here will naturally look forward to see some account of. I refer to a presentation ceremony, which was held in the Primitive Methodist Chapel, and at which a large number of persons were present, the majority of them being the parents of the chil- dren attending the school of which Mr. Parkin   is the able superintendent. The testimonial con- sisted of a splendid silver patent lever watch, with a gold albert chain, and was presented by Mr. Alexander Lindsay, who accompanied the gift with some very pertinent and appropriate remarks. He mentioned in the course of his remarks that the labors of Mr. Parkin in connection witli the Prim- itive Methodist Sabbath School in Minmi would never be forgotten. Mr. Parkin, who was much affected, made a very nice reply. He stated that he had filled the responsible position of superintendent for nearly eight ye...

COORUMBONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

COORUMBONG. When closing my last communication, the rain was pouring in torrents, and so rapidly did the creek rise, that our mailman, after proceed- ing about two miles on his road to Mount Vin- cent, was obliged to return and remain here un- til the next morning. How he contrived to get along on Tuesday, I have not as yet heard, but I know it must have been a rather difficult journey, as there are a couple of bridges, if not more, carried away by the floods, and Dora Creek is again impassable, the old bridge'having   been washed away on Monday last, although     there were two men employed at it on Saturday, so as to make it secure, and to serve as a tem- porary crossing-place in low water. Tenders have been invited for the rising of the new bridge, which has dropped on one end to the depth of about a foot, but the Road Trust is not, I hear, to meat until Saturday, the 25th instant, a long procrastination in such an emergency. There were tend...

BUSHRANGING AND MURDER AT TUMBARUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

BUSHRANGING AND MURDER AT TUMBARUMBA. (From the Tumut Times.) On Saturday night last, great excitement was caused by a report that a Chinese store at Upper Tumbarumba had been stuck up, and that, the unfortunate Celestial in charge had been mortally wounded. The alarm was first given by a Chinaman, who rushed breathless-     ly into a neighbour's residence, and hurriedly communicated the above intelligence, which, upon inquiry being made, was unfortunately   discovered to be but too true. The following are the main facts connected with the outrage     which have as yet been received :—About       nine o'clock on the evening of Saturday, the 111th instant, three mounted Europeans rode up to a Chinese store in the above-mentioned   locality, of which Ten Ming is the proprietor,   and ordered the inmates in the usual phrase-   ology to bail-up. ...

PRESENTATION OF THE ROYAL HUMANE SOCIETY'S MEDAL TO MR.H.       W. L. HOLT.   Last evening, pursuant to previous announce- ment, William Keene, Esq.F.G.S., delivered his lecture on 'The Saving of Life' from Ship- wreck, and the History of Grace Darling," to a large, and fashionable assemblage in the Courthouse. The audience was a highly res- pectable and influential one, members of near- ly all the leading families of the city and dis- trict being present. At about ten minutes past eight o'clock, Mr. Keene (the lecturer); his -Worship the Mayor of Newcastle ; the Rev. Mr. Bode, incumbent of St John's Church (English), Lake Macquarie Road; and the hero of the evening, Mr. H.,W. L.

Their appear- ance was the signal for loud cheering, and con- siderable enthusiasm on the part of the audi- ence, owing, no d...

THE WORKING MAN IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

THE WORKING MAN IN AUSTRALIA. A. NEW arrival from the old country, or in   colonial parlance, a 'new chum,' accustomed, either to dwell in great cities where the labour- ing and artizan classes inhabit distinct quar- ters from the aristocracy ; or fresh from the English rural districts, where the labourer is regarded by some as a mere machine (with a capability for getting drunk), by others as a fair object for experimentalizing upon ; — such an individual is sure to be struck with the in- dependent position assumed by the very men who, ere they left their native land, had, liter- ally, not a word to say for themselves. The new chum will recognize the features perhaps of many a stalwart "son of toil," but will re-   cognize nothing further ;— he will miss a ser- vility of manner, a sort of moral "crouching"   in his quondam 'inferior' but now ' equal';—   he will see a good coat where he first saw a ragged one, and better than all ...

GENERAL NEWS. THE NAUTICAL TRAINING SHIP VERNON.— The ship Vernon, which was purchased by the Government some months ago, and fitted up as a nautical training school for boys, under the Reformatory Schools Act, passed last session, was yesterday opened for the purposes for which she was purchased ; a large number of the mem- bers of both branches of the Legislature, and other gentlemen interested in the moral and so- cial advancement of the people having, with their ladies, assembled on board, at the invita- tion of the Government, to inspect her, and to   be informed of the objects for which she had been purchased.

MURDER OF MR.

The following are all the particulars at present to hand: — Mr. Thomas Ulrick Burke, agent for the   Bank of Australasia, Smythesdale, where he   had been stationed for the last six years, left     that township yesterday morning in a buggy   in company with Mr. Grant, of the Break-o-   Day, taking with him sufficient money to pay the men there, and intending, to bring the   gold from the claim home with him.

EXTRAORDINARY AND FEARFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 22 May 1867

EXTRAORDINARY AND FEARFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. (From the Daily News, February 28 .) A fearful accident of a very remarkable kind happened on the Lancaster and Carlisle railway shortly before midnight last night near Yanwath Bridge, about a mile and a half south of Penrith station. It appears from what we are at present able to gather, that about the time named, as a goods train from the south was passing Yanwath Bridge, the axle of one of the trucks about the middle .of the train broke, and threw several carriages   off the metals and upon the up line. Among those was a powder van — a van constructed specially for tho purpose of carrying gunpow-   der — made of iron, and of cylindrical form, bolted, barred, and locked, and contained, it is said, about five tons of powder. Almost immediately afterwards another goods train arrived at the scene of the accident from Car- lisle, and consequently on the other line of rails ; and coming along at full speed, dashed in...
