News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

KILLED WHILE PREPARING FOR A BALL.
A gentleman named William Small, living in New Brompton, was yesterday morning decorating the Queen's Hall the Chatham Conservative Club with flags in readiness for a ball when fell from the top of a ladder, a distance of 25 feet. He was picked up insensible, and died a few hours after from fracture of the skull.
