Police Protection. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 3 May 1876
S' Police Protection. Oun attention has been drawn repeal edly of late to the insuficiency of police piotection' in the districts outsidi the city of Newcastle.. It is argued, and with considerable justice, that although the population of the mining townships are as a general rule remark ably well behaved as a body, as may-be proved' by the small number of charges on the police sheet at Waratah :Police Court, yet occasion might arise when additional" protective force might be necessary. It is well known that for years New" Lambton has "been . till lately without even the shadow of offi cial protection save that which might be afforded by 'the knowledge that Con: stable FiIxzE was possibly a mile off at liis: post in 'Lambton.

Fatal Railway Accident—Mr. J. Warner Killed. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 3 May 1876
Fatal Railway Accident-- Mr. J. Warner Killed. MR. Joseph WARNER, the well known draper, at the corner of Cleveland-street and Botany Road, &nbsp; was killed on Monday morning by a passing train, midway between Sydney and Newtown. It appears that Mr Warner has been in the habit of taking a constitutional stroll nearly every morning for the benefit of his health, which was in a failing condition Early this morning he left home, and walked across the paddocks near his re sidence, and adjoining the railway line. It is surmised that while he was cross- ing the line, or walking along it, one of the early morning trains must have struck him, knocked him down, and killed him instantaneously. Whether the engine driver or guard of the train saw or know of the ocourrence, is not at present known to the railway au- thorities. It is most probable the accident was not noticed, for the &nbsp; train did not stop, but proceeded on its journey as usual. But as the five minutes past s...

NOTES AND EVENTS [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 4 May 1876
NOTES AND EVENTS (FROM OUR 0 SYDNEY CORRLF.SPONDENT.) TuE Marine Board coslouenced aln inquiry to-day into thie circumstances connected with the collision between the steamer New England and the steam-tug Chal lenge on Sunday night, and concluded it. so far as to finish the examination of witnesses on either side. The inquiry now stands adjourned until to-morrow morning, when the Board will give its decision. It is diflliult to say what the result will be. ".The rule of the road in harbour and at sea is that when' two vessels meet each other each shall port her helm, and this the New England did; but it is contended that when a collision is rdnmost inevitable by a vessel going to port; the rule should be set aside, and .the vessel" steered sc that she can pass in safety. The question in the present case is whether the New England was right in going to port, or whether she should have gone to starboard and cleared out of the way in the easiest mannor open to her, as the vessel was ha...
PRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 4 May 1876
PnREsENTATION.-An interesting core mony took place on Tuesday, at W llsendin the Church of England schoolroom, thoe occasion being the presentation of a Tea and Coffeo service in silver to Mr. MI. Willis, late head teacher of the Wadlsond Public School, and now of Noiueastle. The prcscntation would doubtless have been mado at an earlier date, but for the fact of Mr. Willis having left hi: school at Wollsend so unexpectedly, and at so short a notico. The old adago "out of sight, out of mind," did not hold good in this case, for although Mr. Willis left so hurriedly his numerous friends had too lively a snose of the nu?my servideo rendered to the Church of which he was a member to forget him. Ties day evening having been fixed for the preseon tation a good number of ladies and gentlemen wore in attendance, all interested in the occa ion. The Roev. S. Wood in an excellent speech referred to the many serviecs rendered by Mr. Willis to the church, and expressed the great pleasure it affo...

BRISBANE. Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 4 May 1876
DRISBANE. Monday. Wardet Hill, Byerstown, on the 27th M?arhb, writes to the Secretary for Mines to the effect that he started for the now rush on the 17th, and arrived on the 10th. He stayed two days visiting the field. Tihe alluvial diggings are no good. There were no largdfinds, and very low making tucker. The rush must be stopped, if possible, or starva tion and other serious results will ensue. Thie roofs are really good. Tlirty protection areas have been laid off for the reward, equal to thir teen ordinary claims. He is confident the fieold will be a largo roofing one. Every eyer tion should be used to stop the rush.
