The lady made fof the bridge and attempted to jump over the side, a distance of 100ft.

NEWCASTLE. JAN. 8. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
NEWCASTLE. JAN. 8.. '.'It was' rather a curious coincidence .that last week I was remarking on the fre quency of ;fires in this city, pointing out that there were a few more rookQries which wouldin all probability never dis appear until they were burned down, and that this week the locality I referred to has become "the prey of the devouring 'ele inent," as the orthodox penny-a-liner'has it.' Yet such is the case, and but for the damage that would have occurred to one or two citizens', property, through their not being insured, it world have been a blessing if the whole raft had been d'estroyed. A more complete nest of shanties does not exist in the whole colony, not even in the notorious Sydney Parks, the difference being that the Newcastle rookeries were inhabitedhby respectable, hard-working tradespeople, and the Sydney shanties by those who were no better than they ought to have bieen. Unfortunately, ina senitorial and picturesque sense, part of these wooden abortions still rema...
