SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870
SINGLETON. There ls very little news in Singleton wortu recording at the present time. The last thing that caused any excitement was the annual municipal election, which resulted in the return to the council of Messrs. Kennie, Gorman, Dalton, and Christian. The election passed off very quietly, and in marked contrast to tho bustle and noise at the general'election in January. The next sittings of tho District Court commence on the 22nd instant, before his Honor Judge Simpson. The list is not a vory long one, and will probably be. disposed of in a couple of days.

It appears that Mr. Ashburne was out riding, when he was thrown from his .horso with sufficient violence to dislocate his shoulder and otherwise bruise his body. The assistance of Dr. Pierce was obtained, under whose skilful troatmont tho sufferer is doing as well as could bo expected under tho circumstances. Another and far moro melancholy accident happened on Friday last, the 18th instant, and one which caused a deop feeling of gloom to pervade the whole town.- We allude to the sudden and untimely decease of Mr. Benjamin Griffiths, son of Mr. Griffiths, of West Maitland, through taking an overdose of chlorodyne.

Tho Wallis's Creek floodgates, which were formally opened a week or two ago, are now ready for actual use, tho finishing stroke having been given to them by tho contractors. Pooplo await with much interest the next fresh in tho river to see how the gates will act.
