No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
It is impossible for any man of a reflective mind, to rend the record, by each mail, of the world's events, without being profoundly impressed with the mighty influences which are actively at work in the destinies of mankind. Compared with these, all that apparently belongs to us at this side of the earth dwindles into miserable insignificance. To the ordi- nary observer, our isolated geographical position permits us to view the eventful occurrence's that are transpiring on the grand stage, as men might look on the shifting scenes of a panoramic display ; but a deeper review shows the important associating &nbsp; links, and throws out into broad relief those delicate and vital threads which hold together the social and commercial fabric of the civilized human family. The disruption of the great American Republic might, at first glance, appear to us simply as an in- teresting or exciting act. Of the drama which is being enacted elsewhere for our edification or pastime, if we ...

THE COLONIES. NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
THE COLONIES. NEW ZEALAND. We have had some late intelligence from &nbsp; New Zealand, our dates coming down to the &nbsp; 18th instant, but there is nothing satisfactory &nbsp; to be drawn from the files which have come into our hands. It was only the other day we were led to expect a pacific termination to this war, — for war it really has turned out to be, — now we find ourselves in the midst of another hitch, an attempt to explain which would, we fear, tend more to embarrass than inform our renders, and we can only refer to the extracts we have made elsewhere. War is, under any circumstances, an awful ca- lamity ; and the responsibility that attaches to the statesman who will recklessly enter upon the management, of the originating difficulty, cannot be exaggerated ; but when the event becomes inevitable, there is nothing left but to meet it with the masculine intel- lect of the statesman, and the talent and cou- rage of the soldier. Whether New Zealand h...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
TASMANIA. Our latest intelligence from Launceston come down to the 16th instant. Sir Henry Edward Fox Young dissolved par- liament on the 8th May, and our neighbours were busy in preparations for another election. There armours to be some dissatisfaction as to the land bill they have got from their responsible govern- ment; on the other hand, much credit is given for the energy exhibited in the survey depart- ment — a point we consider of great practical value. The Royal Society of Tasmania are urging on public attention the value of their timber, as an article of export ; and they have done them- selves honour by electing Robert Pitcairn, Esq , of Edinburgh, so well known for his literary at- tainments, a member of their body. H.M. Steamship Prince Arthur called at Launceston for supplies, on the 9th May, and left next day, with troops for New Zealand.
THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
THE QUEEN'S BIRTH DAY. REVIEW.--The Queen's birth day came off here with &nbsp; &nbsp; great éclat. All the ships in the harbour were decorated with a profusion of bunting ; the foreign consuls displaying the same material in evidence of their loyalty. The rail- way trains exceeded their usual length, and thanks to Mr. Rae, extra trains were provided for the occasion. Our gallant voluteers--artillery and rifle--turned out at the &nbsp; &nbsp; barracks in full fi., with their band very much improved in every respect. The royal salute was exceedingly well managed ; we had seven guns, followed by a volley of rifles, repeated three times, making up the usual twenty one guns, which has for ages been the regulation number on such occasions. The force was then put through the cus- tomary evolutions, in which they displayed a precision and alaciity highly creditable to their officers and drill ser- geant. The whole corps were afterwards marched round the city...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
QUEENSLAND. WE have dates from Queensland down to the 18th instant. Parliament was in session, and the discussions were somewhat lively, but there are none of the topics under debate in which we are much interested. In answer to a question, the minister stated that the delay in the settlement of the debt betwixt Queensland mid New South Wales, lay entirely with the government of the latter colony. The colonial treasurer had submitted his budget, and, as the fashion is, congratulated the House on the prosperity of the colony ; as to the budget itself, he is likely to get just as much thanks as usually fall &nbsp; to the luck of other chancellors of exchequer — that is, all over the left shoulder. In looking over our English files by the last mail, we find something instructive in the science of poli- tical management — if we may be permitted to coin such a silence. In the House of Lords, on the 21st March last, the Duke of Newcastle, colonial secret- ary, moved the second rea...
Newcastle Police. THURSDAY, MAY 22. (Before H. Scott. Esq. P.M.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
Newcastle Police. THURSDAY, MAY 22. (Before H. Scott. Esq., P.M.) &nbsp; Mary Brideport, who had been taken into custody by constable Loyd, the previous night, in Hunter-street was charged with vagrancy, and being found drunk and dis- orderly. This poor creature-the wreck of a fine woman was a lamentable example of the vice of which she had become the victim. The chief constable proved that she &nbsp; had been more than once before the court, and had just lately completed a term of six months' imprisonment in Maitland gaol. The prisoner did not altogether deny the charge, but qualified her pleading by a very common ex- cuse, "that she was neither drunk nor sober." His wor- &nbsp; ship represented his fear that the prisoner had reached a point of incorrigibility, and sentenced her to one month &nbsp; imprisonment in Maitland gaol, with hard labour.--Tho- &nbsp; &nbsp; mas Newton, farmer, was charged with having been found drunk and diso...
TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. MELBOURNE. Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. MELBOURNE. Tuesday Evening. THE council have deferred action on the address for ?? mint. In the Assembly, Mr. Grant said the rail- way to Woodend would be opened next month. The house then went into the estimates. &nbsp; Wednesday Evening. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Houston has been gazetted commissioner of &nbsp; railways. He is likely to be keenly opposed. The Government intend to devote next Wednesday to the passing of a bill to abolish the export duty on gold. Mr Ireland has introduced into The Assembly a bill to facilitate the transfer of land. It differs con- siderable from Torrens' Act, but is founded chiefly on a correct registry of titles. ADELAIDE. &nbsp; The Assembly stands adjourned for a week, to enble the new Ministry to.prepare their measures. The markets are steady.

WEST MAITLAND DISTRICT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
WEST MAITLAND DISTRICT COURT. Turner v. Nicholson.— This case was commenced on Monday afternoon, and did not terminate till Tuesday even- ing. Mr. Simpson, attorney Mr. O'Meagher, appeared for the plaintiff ; and Mr. Mullen for the defendant. Mr. Mullen applied for a postponement, first on the ground that in the summons Mr. Nicholson was described as a resident in Maitland, whereas he had not resided in Maitland since 1859, and he was therefore out of the jurisdiction of the court; secondly, that a material witness, Mr. Nagle, was not in attendance. Mr. Simpson objected to a postpone- ment, and maintained that Mr. Nicholson carried on busi- ness in Maitland, and spent as much of his time in Maitland as in Sydney ; secondly, on the ground that it had not been shown that any steps had been taken to procure the attend- ance of Mr. Nagle. liis Honor said that he could not see any reason why the case should not go on, and must there- fore overrule Mr. Mullen's objections; at the same tim...
STROUD, PORT STEPHEN [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
STROUD, PORT STEPHENS. In our last we gave you a brief account of the late floods which have visited this district, as well as other parts of the country, but not be disastrous as the correspondents from the different towns report. The maize crops have sustained a great deal of in- &nbsp; jury, the principal part of it being under water, and &nbsp; in some instances it has been levelled to the ground by the force of the current; we may say about one- half of the present crop is destroyed, as it is now in a &nbsp; decayed and growing state. A great quantity of po- tatoes and pumpkins and other vegetables have been carried away, but what is still worse the soil is being carried away, and in some places to the depth of five to six inches. Fences have also shared the same fate. The Barrington and Gloucester Rivers were exceedingly high ; the former was in some places three feet higher than in the flood of August, 1857. &nbsp; But no considerable damage ha...
SYDNEY. DEPARTURE OF MR. DALLEY AND MR. PARKES FOR ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
SYDNEY. DEPARTURE OF MR. DALLEY AND MR. PARKES FOR ENGLAND. YESTERDAY afternoon, these gentlemen, who have been chosen by the Goverment it to the new offices of Immigration Lecturers, left Sydney by the Wonga Wonga, for Melbourne, en route to Great Britain, whither they will proceed by the steamship Great Britain. On board the Wonga Wonga, and on the Company's wharf, at which she was lying a large number of gentlemen assembled to bid the dis- tinguished emigrants farewell; amongst whom we observed the Honorable Charles Cowper, the Honor- able John Robertson, the Honorable K. C. Weekes, Richard Jones, Esq., Dr. Woolley, Mr. W. C. Win- deyer, M.P. ; S. D. Gordon, Esq., ; Mr. Sutherland, M.P. ; Mr. I. J. Blake, M.P. ; Mr. Dick, M.P. ; E. S. Hill, Esq.. Mr. R.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
COLONIAL EXTRACTS. The following extracts are taken from the various &nbsp; journals published in the several localities to which the subject matter relates. ♦ &nbsp; CLARENCE RIVER GOLD-FIELDS. — A correspond- dent, an old digger, writing from the New Rush, under date the 29th April, states: — " There is a gold-field in the Clarence River district, sufficiently extensive to employ 20,000 men, were it once pro- perly opened up. This, I doubt not, will soon be the case, as storekeepers and others connected with the Timbiirra diggings, in conjunction with some of the inhabitants of Tenterfield, have subscribed a sum of moneyy for the purpose of prospecting this part of the country. It is to be hoped that this affair will not be lost sight of, as that will be the surest means of bringing to light the hidden treasures of this dis- trict. I cannot think how it is that the inhabitants of the Clarence do not contribute their mite towards anything of this kind, as they have,...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. OUR DUBLIN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 25 May 1861
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. OUR DUBLIN LETTER. SHIPWRECKS AND LOSS OF LIFE. — Dublin. February 14, 1861. — On the night of Friday last a dreadful storm arose, which continued the entire of Saturday, and brought in its train the most melancholy results. All around the coast of Dublin, north and south, from information received, it appears that every- where the mighty storm king left his track. In Kingstown the most saddening occur- rences took place. Captain Boyd, of the 'Ajax,' a man of war's-man vessel of the English fleet with several of his crew, was &nbsp; &nbsp; drowned while endeavouring to afford succour to the crews of two vessels, which were sink- ing outside the east side of the Pier. The deceased captain had endeared himself to the inhabitants of Kingstown and of the city of Dublin by his uniformly urbane manners, and the facility he afforded persons visiting the vessel of which he was commander. He has left a widow and three children to de- plore his premature deat...

Printers all the day long Labour hard for a song — A fate that is hard, ell agree — ' They have worktxl night and day, And of course want their pay, To buy sugar, and coffee, and tea. One would hardly believe What small sums they receive* For the paper addressed to each name; But the price is so small That the good people all Will pay up for the fear of the thame ! ? Only two dollars for a whole year of the paper.
THE SENSE OF PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 29 May 1861
THE SKNSE OF PAIN. (From tht Eclectic for January.) No one donbts the result of cutting off tho head of a flub, reptile, bird, or mamma ** linns^ut let him decapitate a snail, and what ts tho result ? The eniirc head, with eyes and antenna?, nSie speedily reproduced. The be.id of th&^fcjk-jirater naiad has been *- -cut off sovon tisflHm a fresh one has been formed. From this it is evident that the gunglite in -the head of these creatures are not, as in the vsrtebrata, essential to the con tinuance of life iu the individual. This re production of parjts resembles rather tho vegetable than the animal kingdom. In ver tobratte animals we have reproduction of fluids and epidermis, but anything like the re-generation of important organs is never Been. The nervous centres iu the heads of insects have bi'en dignified by some writers with the title of brains, but it is evident that they have no right to be so called. Colonel ( Pringle could keep decapitated drngon-flies' Vfof'four an...
