QUEANBEYAN. Monday, August 26. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
QUEANBEYAN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Monday, August 26. THE town was taken by surprise by the sudden and unexpected removal of your presses and printing plant. Few thought, that after seven years of un- wearied, though ill-requited, labour, Queanbeyan would lose the presence of that great civilizer — the printing press. But so it is; and I am not disposed to blame the people for the result; in my opinion they did as well as they could; the fact is, the dis- trict is too poor to support a paper as it ought to be supported. No doubt the day is distant when any- body else will make a second attempt. If you didn't succeed, who could? But the explanation in your last issue appears to give universal satisfaction, and of course I shall do my best to keep up the character of the paper, or even to improve it — that is, if dili- gence and the eyes of Argus can do so. The following may be of interest to free-selectors. A.t the police-court here on Tuesday in last week. William Tulley v. Edwar...
MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
MOLONGLO. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] WE are enjoying really splendid weather out here at present, and an early Spring has burst in on us all at once. The farmers have taken advantage of the late fine weather and have all their available lands cropped, and the young wheat has a fine healthy appearance as it shows over the ground, in fact it would be nearly impossible for this portion of the district to put on a more favourable aspect than it does at present. The sheep and cattle are in fair condition, and if the fine weather continues we may expect a good yield of lambs in the lambing season as there is an abundance of grass, and the squatters out here are in expectation of a more than average clip of wool this shearing. &nbsp; &nbsp; A beautiful meteor was seen out here on Saturday evening last, at about a quarter past 6 o'clock. It appeared to be about the size of a twenty-one pound shot and was of a pale-flame colour; but very bril- liant, and travelled in an eapter...
Weekly Commercial Report. "INDEPENDENT OFFICE," Friday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
"INDEPENDENT OFFICE," &nbsp; Friday afternoon. THE paramount importance of a faithful and reliable commercial report to both producer and wholesale buyer renders it incumbent upon a public chronicler, if he attempts to keep the interested reader posted in this particular kind of intelligence, to employ every available means to secure the end in view. Thus persuaded we have effected arrangements which will, we trust be found to work admirably---the test &nbsp; being in the correctness of the statements we shall from time to time make in this department of our &nbsp; labour. We may further mention that our infor- mation being gathered from the most authentic and disinterested sources, the fullest reliance may be placed in our quotations as well as in the remarks appended to them. The following may be taken as the state of the market to-day:- &nbsp; Wheat has poured in from all directions during the past and preceding weeks, and the supplies thus to hand...
Our Sydney Letter. WEDNESDAY, Aug. 28 [?] [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 28 th IN Parliamentary matters very little has taken place during the past few days of interest to the outside public. The proposed new Land Bill was intro- duced on Wednesday last and read a first time, many loquacious members giving their opinions upon it, instead of waiting according to the custom and usage of Parliament for the second reading of the bill. Mr. Robertson expressed an opinion that the bill would never become law, as it would have the effect of locking up the lands in the hands of the squatters for fifteen years and prevent agricultural settlement. The debate on the second reading of the Bill will take place on the 18th of September, when the Opposition and Ministerial benches will muster all their forces for the trial of strength. It is well known that the introduction of this bill is to be Mr. Robertson's opportunity for attemptinig to eject the present Ministry, but I think they have got too strong a hold of public favour to be easily dis- placed....

GARDENING CALENDER FOR SEPTEMBER. Compiled expressly for this journal, by a practical Gardener of the district. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
GARDENING CALENDER FOR SEPTEMBER. Compiled expressly for this journal, by a practical Gardener of &nbsp; the district. September in the Braldwood district being somewhat cold and subject to prevalent frost, delays seed time here a month later than in other districts surrounding. This month is of great importance to the gardener. Planting fruit trees, pruning and grafting, should be completed. Sow peas, beans, cabbage, turnips, cauliflower, let- tuce, parsnips, carrots, and parsley. Choose a warm sheltered sit- uation for tomatoes, radishes, mustard, and cress; shelter them from frost. Plant a few of the early kidney potatoes; the ash leaf or Radford kidney is the best. Transplant all autumn sown cab- bage in rows two feet apart. Plant onions, lettuce, and land cress. THE FLOWER GARDEN will soon have a neat appearance, as the bulbs show themselves. Clean the border and rake them over. Sow mignonette, candituft, larkspur, ten-week stocks. Virginia stock, chinaaster, marigold, ...
A VESSEL CAST AWAY MORE THAN FIFTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
A VESSEL CAST AWAY MORE THAN FIFTY YEARS AGO. The schooner Caroline Mills recently re- turned to San Francisco from an expedition, undertaken last January, in the hope of recovering a portion of the lading of the barque Libelle, which was wrecked on Wake's Island, in the North Pacific, in March, 1866, and in which Madame Anna Bishop was at the time a passenger. Not meeting with much success in recovering the cargo of the Libelle, Captain Nichols, of the Caroline Mills, determined to abandon the wreck. Not having made a fortune by the Libelle, and being loth to return to port empty-handed, the skipper now cast about for something to do, and somewhere to go. His decision and its results are given as follows by the San Francisco Times :- He remembered that an island called Cornwallis Island was laid down on the chart, and thought he would hunt it up. He did so, finding it with some difficulty, and making the discovery at the same time that it was some forty miles from the spot laid dow...
PROGRESS OF INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
PROGRESS OF INVENTION. (From the Intellectual Observer.) ENGRAVING ON STEEL.-Photography has recently been applied very ingeniously to this purpose. The steel plate, having been covered with a mixture of gelatine and bichromate of potash, or bitumen of Judea, is exposed under a negative obtained in the camera; after which the soluble portions of the coating are washed off. The plate is next gilt in the usual way, by means of the electrotype process; after which, the re- mainder of the gelatinous coating is to be removed. It is then immersed in dilute acid, which acts on the portions not protected by the gilding, that is on those which are to represent the shades of the picture; the various grades being produced by the pre- sence of a greater or less number of particles of gold, which more or less protect the sur- face. When the plate is removed from the acid, and washed, a number of copies may be printed from it, and it will be found to produce very excellent pictures. THE DRUMMOND ...
The Independent. SATURDAY, AUGUST 31st, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
SATURDAY, AUGUST 31st, 1867. IN making its appearance as a candidate for public favour in the field of journalism, it it both customary and necessary that a newspaper should first justify the step it has taken, then avow its principles, and, if circumstances call for it, vindicate itself from any aspersions or slur that has been cast upon it, either in ignorance, or with design to damage its interests. This task is ours. We have chosen the old established locality of Braidwood as the sphere of our operations, not with a view to oppose an older contem- porary, or to gratify the idiosyncrasies of a class; but because we are persuaded, from our knowledge of the district, and that persuasion is strengthened by the opinion of those best calculated to judge of the mat- ter, that there is certainly room for two newspapers where erewhile three found constituents enough for their support. It &nbsp; is true two of these are defunct. But it &nbsp; cannot be gainsaid that their ...
Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
Local and District News. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; POLICE BUSINESS. — Nothing of any public impor- tance has transpired at the local police-court this week. MR BARCLAY, late bailiff of the Braidwood Dis- trict Court, has removed to Albury, where he is to receive the appointment of sheiriffs' bailiff. Mr Car- ter is named as the successor of Mr Barclay in Braidwood. TELEGRAPHIC. — The following important message has been transmitted to every country station- master :— I am directed by the Hon. the Postmaster- General to inform you that on and after the 1st proximo, all country station-masters are to be in at- tendance daily between the hours of 8 and 9 p m., in order to afford additional facilities for despatching important telegrams after the ordinary hours, and all such telegrams, except press, are to be charged at the rate of 50 per cent extra." IT is understood that the New Steam Flour Mill in this town has been purchased by R. Mad...
GRASS SEEDS AND PADDOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
GRASS SEEDS AND PADDOCKS. &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Australasian.) We suppose there has been a much larger &nbsp; area of land laid down under English grasses this past season than ever before in the colony in so few months. Squatters especially are beginning at last to find out that a few hundred acres under clover and artificial grasses are as serviceable as many thousand acres of natural grasses used to be. Farmers now look upon a paddock or two of perennial rye-grass as one of the, essentials of their farms, not only as being a grand store-room for food, but equally valuable as a rotation crop; and in our suburbs it must be patent to ,all that the present plots of lucerine and prairie-grass feed treble the number of milk-producing animals that these did a few years since when the land was unimproved. Families keep cows now who never dreamt of such a thing upon their acre or two of indigenous herbage, and with the assistance of a few purchased man- golds occ...
A LECTURE TO THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
A LECTURE TO THE QUEEN. THE Times, acting as the mouthpiece of the people of London, who are very sore at the long absence of the Queen from among them, reads her Majesty a lecture on her duties, as the "head of English society":— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "There is one function of royalty (says the leading journal) upon the due perform- ance of which both the real and the imagin- ary influences of the Crown depend for their permanence. The Sovereign must appear frequently in public, must exercise a splen- did hospitality, must be the visible head of English society. The policy of some Oriental despots has been to seclude themselves from the eyes of their subjects, lest familiarity should dissipate the impression of super- human attributes. The policy of English Kings has been exactly the reverse, and Englishmen have come to regard the social duties of sovereignty as very real and serious duties. The Stuarts, with, all their faults, understood this part of kingcra...
ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867
ARALUEN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] WELL, after much- mental speculation as to what sort of a road I should have to travel, the kind of place it would be when I got there, the general habits of the people, how gold-digging was carried on on the larger scale and the prospects there are for general trade; I have arrived at the far-famed valley of Araluen, whose vast field of gold, a metal &nbsp; &nbsp; " so hard to get and so heavy to hold," has brought together people from almost all parts of the known world. The scenery on the line of route from Braid wood to Araluen is new in comparison to anything else of the kind I have, as yet, met with in the colony, varied-romantic-wild. Other places I have visited, have had little else but gum trees to be seen-gum on the right, gum on the left, gum stretching far away behind, and gum ahead into which to penetrate. But this track of country, more especially after leaving the flatter parts on the Braidwood side of Major's Creek, ...
