FURTHER PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

FURTHER PROROGATION OP PARLIAMENT. THE following Proclamation appeared, in a Supple- mentary Gazette, issued on Saturday. As it is not stated that the Parliament is to assemble for despatch of business on the 18th June, the probability is that, there will be a further prorogation : — PROCLAMATION. By his Excellency the Right Honorable Sir John Young, Baronet, Knight Commander of the Most Honorable Order of the Bath, Knight Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St, George, Captain General and Governor- in-Chief of the Colony of New South Wales, and Vice-Admiral of the same.   Whereas the Parliament of New South Wales now stands prorogued to Tuesday, the twenty-first day of   May instant, and it is expedient further to prorogue the same : Now, therefore, I, Sir John Young, in pursuance of the powers and authority in me vested   as Governor of the said Colony, do hereby further prorogue the said Parliament, to Tuesday, the...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

BEFORE our next issue appears, her most gracious Majesty, the Queen of England, will have passed the forty-second milestone in her   journey of life, and we may be allowed to pause   for a moment to consider what interest, we   have in celebrating this birthday. The man that could stand by motionless, looking at   this as one of the ordinary passing events, can hardly be considered an Englishman.   Friday will be the birthday of the greatest sovereign in the world— a monarch on whose dominions the sun never sets — the queen of our own highly privileged land — an honour to her exalted position— a pattern to her sex. It is true that the sovereign of those realms is wisely hedged round by so many constitu- tional checks, that, be they what they may in private life within the regal enclosure, they are comparatively harmless ; but if we examine the subject through the pages of the past, we are compelled to acknowledge, and ...

THE CENSUS RETURNS.—POPULATION OF NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

THE CENSUS RETURNS--POPULATION OF NEWCASTLE. WE have been very kindly favoured by j. Burrows, Esq., district registrar, with the returns of the population of Newcastle taken in the month of April, and we are glad to have it in our power to place before our readers the grati- fying fact that Newcastle has been going ahead in a ratio of which we believe none of our neighbours are able to boast. This is to be found in the subjoined return of the census with which we have been thus early furnished, and showing that, since 1856, we have increased our population by upwards of seventy five per cent. A better proof of the increasing prosperity of the city of Newcastle cannot be conceived. The number of inhabitants in the registry dis- trict of Newcastle, as shown by the census taken this year, is 8150, being an increase of 3620 since the year 1856. The     electoral district of Newcastle contains : —   City ward ........ 1459   &nb...

Newcastle Police. MONDAY, MAY 19. (Before H. Scott, Esq., P.M., and E. Healy, Esq. J.P.[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

Newcastle Police. MONDAY, MAY 19. (Before H. Scott-, Esq., P. M. and E. Healy, Esq., J. P. Elizabeth Russell was charged with stealing a sum of money— about £30— the property of Mr. James Baker of Bolton-street. The case occupied the court the best   part of the day, and seemed to excite considerable interest more perhaps, from the amount involved than from any   peculiarity in the case itself. It appeared from the evidence produced, that this young woman was engaged as a domestic servant by Mrs.M'Dicken, and that on Monday last Mrs. M'Dicken had placed in a drawer in her bedroom this sum of money   principally in notes, and including some five-pound notes. The money disappeared, and the young woman, who had a day or two before declared herself penniless, suddenly   made such considerable additions to her wardrobe as to at-   tract the attention of her employers and excite suspicion.   She met the accusati...

WEST MAITLAND DISTRICT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

WEST MAITLAND DISTRICT COURT.   SCANLON V. WEBB.--This was an action to dis-   cover £25 17s., amount due by the defendant to the plaintiff. From the evidence for the plaintiff it ap- peared that in February 1860, defendant entered into a verbal agreement with him to glaze certain   lead- light windows, at 2s. per foot for plain glass and 2s 6d. per foot for coloured glass. In order to complete this work, defendant requested plaintiff to purchase in Sydney for him, a box of coloured glass   which cost, with expenses from Sydney, £12 15s. Defendant executed a part of the work and had re- ceived £5 cash on account. The work was not   finished by defendant, and plaintiff had to pay ano- ther man £7 12s. for finishing and fixing the win-       dow. The contract was to be finished within the three     months, but plaintiff allowed him to do some portion of the...

THE NEWCASTLE VOLUNTEERS AND HER MAJESTY'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

THE NEWCASTLE VOLUNTEERS AND HER MAJESTY'S BIRTHDAY. NEWCASTLE VOLUNTEER RIFLES.--After drill last   evening, captain Bolton read a letter of invitation from the captain of the West Maitland rifle company to the mem- bers of the Newcastle corps, to join with them in a general parade on Friday, the Queen's birthday, at Maitland. A resolution had been carried on a previous occasion to ac- cept such invitation— if received— but some objection was raised to the wording of the letter, and also mention was made that the artillery corps had received no such invita- tion. After some considerable discussion, it was moved and carried unanimously — 'That the company do not ac- cept the invitation, and that captain Bolton be requested   to notify such declension to captain Vindin.' It was then resolved that the corps assemble at the barracks, at eleven o'clock on Friday next, for the purpose of duly honouring her Majesty's birthday. NEWCASTLE VOLUNTEER ARTILLERY. — In ...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

COLONIAL EXTRACTS.   The following extracts are taken from the various     ?? published in the several localities to which the       ?? matter relates.         THE BELLAMBI TRAMWAY AND COAL MINES.--- The subject of the best and most practicable mode of transit both for goods and passengers from one part of the colony to the other, being now under discus- sion and warmly debated by the advocates of each   different system, it may not be uninteresting to give a few particulars of a private tramway now in full work, because a little practice is worth any amount       of theory ; and because the actual cost of a few miles will be more convincing to the public than any spe-   cification, although prepared with care and a large display of plans and calculations, by a scientific or   &...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

COMMERCIAL. SHEEPSKINS.--About 1500 were disposed of at     from 5d. to 8d. per lb. They were chiefly short- woolled skins, nnd the prices realised showed little variations from previous rates. TALLOW.-- The quantity submitted for sale amounted only to about 75 casks. There were no buyers in the market for shipment, and the trade did not appear anxious to purchase. We have, in consequence, to report a slight decline in price at yesterday's sale. Beef tallow brought 36s. to 41s., the latter price be- ing for strong station tallow. Two or three parcels of fair mutton brought from 45s. to 47s. per cwt. HIDES. — We have here, also, to report an indis- position to purchase at former rates ; and the sale of the various lots offered, amounting to about 1200   hides, exhibited a decline of 1s. to 1s. 6d. each. The prices realised were as follows : — Light weights, ill cured, 5s. 6d. to 10s. ; medium 10s. 6d. to 12s. ; and heavy, 14s. 6d. to 16s. 6d. ea...

NEW ZEALAND. THREATENINGS AT WANGANUI. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

NEW ZEALAND. THREATENING AT WANGANUI. A correspondent (whose information is authen- tic), writing on tho 29th ultimo, to the Tara- naki Herald says :— Rewi, the Waikato Chief, and Anuru, a Ngatiawa, some other natives from your province, have come down to Waitotara to       see Abraham and the Ngarauru tribe about the land sold to the Government between Kui-iwi nnd Waitotara rivers, and have persuaded them to return the instalment of £500 paid to them by Mr. M'Lean. Abraham and his people have agreed to do so, and to give over the land in question to the king, and, with the exception of of Pehimana's immediate hapu, have given to their adherence to King Potatau N. The Wan ganui natives are very angry in the matter, and threaten to seize the money for themselves should the same be brought into town for the purpose of being returned. A war party of some three or four hundred Ngatiraukawas and Ngatiawas was on their way up to Waitara the other day...

THREATENING ASPECT OF THE NATIVES IN THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 22 May 1861

THREATENING ASPECTS OF THE NATIVES IN THE NORTH. The Southern Cross, of the 7th, states :— By late advices from Coromondel and the Thames district, we learn that a great deal of excitement prevails amongst the natives in the North and that little reliance is to be placed on the report of the pacific intentions expressed by them at the meeting lately held at Waihau. As is usually the case on such occasions, there was an open korero intended for the Pakeha ear   which win fair and loyal enough ; but unless at night time in their warckoreras, they did not discuss the real object of their meeting until the last two days, aud then it was carried on in language of signs and symbols with occasional words quite unintelligible to any white man there. Their object was to discuss the mode of co-operation with the Waikatos, and to ascer tain upon how many of their people they could rely in case active measures should be deter- mined on. In its summary for home, the Nelson Ex- amine...
