MEERSCHAUM AT THE RICHMOND RIVER [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 8 June 1861

MEBRSCIIAUM AT TH'EL~AIC1IMOM- RIVER From a late number of the new series of the Clarence and Richmond Examiner, we extract the following article upon the deposits, on the banks of the Richmond River, of that valuable earthy mineral Meerschaum : — Although displayed man unfavourable part of one of the galleries of the Sydney School of Arts, during the recent exhibition of natural and industrial products, some remark able specimens of Meerschaum from the Richmond, and which were contributed by Mr. William Kcene, Govern, ment examiner of coal fields and mines, excited much at tention as well as surprise. It is an old saying, ' that ad. miration is generally centrifugal,' and we believe that the virtues of many a Richmond Meerschaum pipe have been tested and canvassed many thousand miles from the dis. trict, very few of its inhabitants, probably, being aware of the presence of this peculiar and valuable mineral in their lands.

POLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 12 June 1861

POLAND. All the latest intelligence from Poland shows that the woik of oppression goes oa with in creased intensity. Every day it is made a crime to resign a civil office, and functionaries who have resigned are transported in default of returning to their posts when ordered. A private letter writes that the Upintone Nalionale says that the directors and editors of the journals and reviews in St. Petersburg have been sent for to the Board of Censure, and offered the alternative of suppression or the renunciation of all liberal tendencies. One of them, an emi nent publicist, ventured to say that a man who respected himself could not thus abandon his convictions to order. He was not listened to, and dismissed, like a bad servant or an unfaith ful lacquey. This writer belonged to the official professionals, and in a few years would have been entitled to a pension which would have provided for himself and family for life. Ho resigned all these prospects, and writes to a friend : — ' I w...
