CORRESPONDENCE. The uritert of these letters, of course, are alone respon sible for the sentiments or facts contained in tlttm. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Sir— In my communication, which appeared in your isiur of Saturday last, I alluded to the fact that this is a progressive age, iu more ways than one. It must have been apparent to the most casual reader, while we men. Honed the progress of society for the last few years as'in dicated by the great advancement made in the means of travelling and communication, that crime and litigation have also advanced with society— that the evil and the good have grown together. In fact, as far as experience has gone, as yet, the more advanced society is, the greater is the need for the means of the punishing nf crime, and the settling ! of those disputes which seem the sequence of the march of j civilization. We have advanced — so has crime. Side by J side are the monuments of our advancement, onward anil ; retrograde— (if we may ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 June 1861

The English language abounds in words of deep significance. There is one word in that vocabulary great among its fellows, and that is ' responsibility.' In all the relations of life — in youth, in manhood, in old age — till the grave enfolds us, that word stares us in the face. We all feel this, therefore, there must be something important in it. Let us, then, search — or rather begin to search — its meaning to the bottom — its meaning — its entire meaning, and we pause to approach an undertaking so difficult. The man or woman who is unconscious of the sense of respon sibility, is more dangerous to society than a mad person, for you can guard against the latter before actual mischief is done, but you cannot against the former. Next, we have the partially conscious, and we gene rally find that these people are very faithful and stern in their fulfilment of those duties which devolve on them — so far as they can see — and for any shortcomings in wh6m, charity, the first of Heaven's bo...

WRECK OF THE ASA PACKER ON THE POINT NEPEAN REEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 1 June 1861

WRECK OF THE ASA PACKER ON THE POINT NEPEAN REEF. ( From tht Geelong Advertiser, May 25.) Yesterday morning, at 9 o'clock, the barque Asa Packer outward bound, from Melbourne for Newcastle, in ballast got ashore on the reef just inside of the extreme end of Point Nepean. The wind was blowing a gale from the south-west at the time, and from the moment the barque   touched the rocks it was seen by those on shore at Queens- cliff that nothing could save her. Without loss of time the lifeboat, manned by the combined crew of the Customs' and Health Officers' boats, put off to save life, but up to five o'clock in the afternoon all efforts were unavailing. The sea was continually making a clean breach over the wreck, and the lifeboat could not get sufficiently near to do any- thing. All this time the crew were distinctly seen from the Qucenscliff side clinging to the lower portions of the rigging and on deck. Seeing that the life-boat could do nothing, attempts were made from ...

BREEDING FAT CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 5 June 1861

BREEDING FAT CATTLE. Why is fnt so honourable ? What is it, that its production should be so cncourngnil ? Thrifty house-wives say it is sheer wusto. Men who feed boasts for the butcher's knifo tell you that, beyond a certain point, fat is n dead loss, exceeding the bounds of what they term ' legitimate crazing,' in no way paying back the outlay for cake and niqal. Alive, it is ' positively hidoous,' — the ladies say so, dend, an excess of it offends the fastidious palate. And yet once a year all London joins in an ovation to it. The proudest nod wealthiest of our nobles, from the Princo Consort downwards, contend for tho honour of producing the greatest possible quantity of it under certain specified con ditions. To witness the grand metropolitan spectacle of fat cattlo, crowds come up from every part of tho kingdom ; portly fanners in lop-boots blocking up our .thoroughfares, whilst the hold, sweeping curves of rotund animal life ask for admiration in every illus trated newspaper....
