ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 29 June 1861

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. v ? Labour in England — Mr. Smiles divides his useful book on this Buhje'ct into two por tions — the first treating on tho earnings and savings of the industrial classes, and the latter upon tbeir strikes. With much animation, be protests .against tho alleged degradation of the working classes, and adheres to the estimate 'formed by Lord Maeaulay, of tho great improve ments that have taken place in their physical condition during the past century. The volume is entitled, ' Workings, Earnings, Strikes, and Savings;' by Samuel Smiles, aud ia published by John Murray, of Albemarle-etreet. The author denies the theory advanced by Mr. Frowde, ' that the working man of modern times has purchased the extension of wages at the price of his material comfort,' and argues that the English artisan is uow better off as re gards the means of living, than at any former period. In a very able sketch of the advances in wages, since tho beginning of the seventeenth century, Mr. Smil...

THE TEA HALLS OF ClflNA. , (From ' Lockliart's Medical Missionary in China.) In the Chinese city there are large shops, or halls, to which the people go for the pur pose of refreshment and social relaxation, and where tea is tho only beverage. Some few are in tho habit of drinking native wine and snirits. but verv few drunkards are seen in a Chinese city. Druukenncss is not a natural vice in China; tea-drinking is so goneral that it may be described as the national habit. On occassion of a public show or when people are much abroad for amusenieut, or visiting tho temples, a visit to yone oif tho public tea-shops is interesting. Many square tables ore scattered over the room, each of which will accommodate four persons sitting round it, when a party enters and is seated, tho attendant immediately places on tho table one or more cups, each cup having a covGr, and containing a small quantity of tea. He then brings boiling water in the kettle and fills tho cups, or takes tho cups to a l...

The Governor's visit to the Hunter has passed nway. In another mouth it will be history, but we hope it will prove to be one of the brightest pages in the history of the colony. Sir John Young hns had an opportunity of seeing 'wlint the people lie lias been placed over are made of, and they have seen in their new governor an excellent specimen of the gennemau auu ine statesman, it quiet uig ' nity and unostentatious demeanor are .charac teristics of the gentleman, they were to be found here. The answers made to the differ ent addresses would in ordinary circumstan ces b*e attributed to the prime minister, who was in attendance as political secretary, and far be it from us to say one word in dispa ragement of Mr. Cowpe.r ; but he is tram melled by party oonneoftons and influences, which it is perhaps difficult to steer clear of. And we imagine that we see in the fulness and,, the freedom of those documents, the hand of the man who has had long training in official life, and who has p...

Mr. Chaucer relate his prison history. Mr. William Charlton was in the chair. The rev. gentle, man was warmly and kindly received, and much sympathy for his sufferings appeared to be entertained by his audi ence, who repeatedly cheered him during his recital. As you have already so fully reported his case to the public, taken from the Empire, and not much new matter was in troduced, beyond his desire to tread lightly on your toes, for having been imposed on by a person whom Dr. Bowker not long ago publicly denounced, it will not be necessery to send you any details, more than the two resolutions, which ? ware carried unanimously. The first of these was—' That this meeting, having heard the Rev. Mr. Chaucer's expla nation of his prison history, beg to express their sympathy for his sufferings, and their approbation of t...
