NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. The weather on Saburday, which was such a decided change, caused a diminution of the audience at the Eisteddfod. The number of people ab bhe opening was small, as compared wibh the previous day. The number, however, gradually increased as bhe time came near for the choirs bo compete, and the greatest excitemenb reigned both during the singing and afterwards while the adjudicator was preparing the award. Eegarding the singing, if we take all the remarks of thab genble man (Mr. Monbague) into consideration, we must certainly say it was no good, and by no means as good as when they were exhibiting during practice. To give the full award would be bo occupy un necessarily boo much space. Four choirs compebed, viz. :— Wallsend and Platteburg, under Mr. J. J. Wells, 80 voices ; Adamsbown and Hamilton, under Mr. Jackson, 130 voices ; Stockton Choral Union, under Mr. J. JoneB, 120 voices ; Newcastle Choral Union, 76, under Mr. Eees Wiliams.

CROW MOUNTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894
CROW MOUNTAIN. Your Barraba correspondent remarks we locked the stable door when the horse was stolen, alluding to the selection or sale of the goldfields here. He is wrong here. The step was protested against over and over to the Warden (supposed to be the proper person) ; but he, however, made no resistance against it apparently, not having the welfare of the district abtheart. &nbsp; Now, Crow Mountain and Jerry's Creek form a piece of country badly watered, and in a succession of bad seasons gone by it was impossible to reside permanently on it. The few who did so found &nbsp; themselves, from bad water, inmates of the Tam worth or other hospitals. During the last three or four years things have taken a change, and the result is thab it has all been selected. That it is a gold field, and one yet undeveloped, is a fact, and you can form your own opinion when I give you the weighb of a few of the nuggets picked up, mostly on or with in a few inches of the surface. ...

The Late Northern Jockey Club Eace Meet ing. — Several members and officials of this club met as usual at Main's Excelsior Hotel on Saturday evening, in anticipation of the usual settling being held in connection with the races on Friday and Saturday. After waiting a considerable time norm of the winners turned up for their cheques, and consequently the members came away disgusted. It is a pity that a more sportsmanlike feeling was not exhibited by those who were fortunate enough ±o prove winners. A little champagne would doubtless have been much appreciated with which to drink the healths of the winners, but these latter probably were under the impression that the ?evening as well as the day was quite wet enough ?without it. Now that the committee of the club have set to work to effect improvements, we think they might censider the advisableness of having an official timekeeper appointed, and see that the time ?of) each race is written up on a black board under the numb...
