Representation of Northumberland. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 2 May 1876
Representation of Northlunier hmld. Tnu passing on Tuesday of the motion of Mn. STEVENS, that the third reading of the Northnmberland Increased c presentation Bill stand an order of the day for Tuesday (this day), is not with out great significance, and MR, STEVENS deserves considerable credit for his per tinacity while condlucting the Bill so far through tire House. eVo have before shown the imperative necessity that ex ists for increased representation of the county of Northnmberland. The re markable increase in the number of elec tors in this county since the present Electoral Law camne in force in' 1859, is well worthy of notice, and points with powerful significance to the immediate necessity for alteration in the present state of our representation. In 1859 there were only 924 electors on tIe roll for the county. In 1878.4, this num ber had increased to 2763, and at the end of the last year those who are entitled to vote are eati mated to number nearly 6000. Nor is this all. I...

A Sad Case of Distress. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 3 May 1876
A. Sad Case of Distress. (Front the Evening Post.) A OAsE of distress has come under our notice, which deserves some recognition on the part of the Government at any rate. It appears that about five months ago two Danes, man and wife, arrived in the colony as immigrants. They could not speak a word of English at the time, and are very little further advanced even now. They went about seeking employment, bnt everywhere they were rejected, because they did not understand the English language. At length they bheard that they might obtain employment by going to the Forty-Mile Bush, whither they went on foot a few weeks ago. They were met with the same answer there, nod now they have returned to town foot sore and weary. When they started for the Forty-mile Bush they, of course left the immigrant Depot, and for the simple reason that they did leave, they cannot now obtain ro admis sion. They are without a home, without any clothes but those they wear, which are mere rags, and almost with...
