Provincial News. BRAIDWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
---Provincial News. BRAIDWOOD. &nbsp; THE NEW ROAD TO QUEANBEYAN.--Mr. Cole inaugurated the completion of his con- tract for the new road to Queanbeyan by bringing in along the line on Tuessday two dray loads of potatoes consigned to Mr. &nbsp; Bush. We understand the transit was made with little or no difficulty, and that only a slight deviation of the line will be necessary to render it a good one throughout. We believe Mr. Larmer commenced to interest himself on Thursday last in the endeavour to augment the funds in hands so as to liquidate Mr. Cole's. claim and we trust that he will meet with a liberal response.' The sum of £70 has been handed over to Mr. Cole, in part payment of the contract. As Mr. Cole holds a certificate from the Braidwood committee as to the faithful performance of the work, and is authorised to collect subscriptions towards defraying the remainder of the costs, we trust that the people of' Queanbeyan who are equally interested in the format...
THE WILD HORSE. (Translated from the Welsh.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
THE WILD HORSE. (Translated from the Welsh.) FORMERLY there was a young Wild Horse in the woods of Glyndaronwy. One morning he came as far as the border of Dolgynon; and in a high-grown pasture, he saw a tame horse grazing clover and flowering hay grass, and drinking water from a purling rill, that flowed like a stream of molten silver between two meadows, full of the perfumed blossoms of the fresh verdure of May. Said he, "How fool- ish I am to pass my life in yonder woods, where I have nothing but coarse ill-favoured grass to eat, and where I have no better deli- cacies than sprigs of trees to chew, and that with trouble in biting them; and where I am compelled to drink of a foul puddle that never smiled in the face of the sun, that trickles be- neath the shadow of leaf-shedding bushes, along a muddy soil. I will go to yonder bright-green meadow, to graze the trefoils and the summer-grown hay-grass, and to drink of the clear-streamed sunny-visaged rill, and to sleep in a soft and ...
Gems from Poets. THE PEN AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
Gems from Poets THE PEN AND TILE PRESS. Young Genius walked forth by the mountains and streams, Entranced by the power of his own pleasant dreams; Til the silent, the wayward, the wandering thing. Found a plume which had fallen from a passing bird's wing. Exulting and proud like a boy at his play, He bore the new prize to his dwelling away; He gazed for a while at its beauties, and then He cut it, and shaped it, and called it a PEN. But its magical use he discovered not yet, Till he dipp'd its white lips in a fountain of jet; Then, 0, what a wondrous thing it became ! It spoke to the world in a language of flame Its master wrote on like a being inspired, &nbsp; Till the hearts of the millions were melted and fired; It came as a boon and a blessing to men,-- The peaceful, the pure, and the conquering PEN ! Young Genius went forth on his rambles once more, The vast sunless caverns of earth to explore; He searched the rude rock, and with rapture he found A substance unknown whi...
Queanbeyan Police Court. (Before the Police Magistrate and W. F. Hayley, Esq.) FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
-- (Before the Police Magistrate and W. F. Hay ley, Esq.) FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. During the early part of the week the police business has been very light. There were two convictions for drunkenness, and one for ob- scene language. John Asse, a Chinaman, charged with being drunk and disorderly in Macquarie-street, on the previous evening, was fined 5s., or one hour in the cells. Bernardt M'Manus, a sample of the penniless vagabondism which is daily passing through to the diggings, charged by constable Willan, with making use of obscene language, and in default of paying £2, sentenced to four days imprisonment in the cells. &nbsp; &nbsp; LARCENY.-Stealing a saddle and bridle. James Byrne of Molonglo, labourer, was charged with stealing a saddle and bridle, the property of John Nelson Woodman. The prosecutor who is landlord of the Odd Fellow's Arms Inn, in Monaro-street; deposed, that the prisoner called at his house about 12 o'clock the previous day, and had something ...
MICALAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
MICALAGO. &nbsp; EDUCATION.--We understand the inhabi- tants of Micalago, are bestirring themselves to petition the Government for the establish- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ment of a public school at that place. We are not aware whether their predelictions are for the denominational or the national system. This is, however what(?) ought to be, seeing that there are many children whose parents are desirous to see them educated, and at present have no school nearer than a distance of thirty miles. We hope other rural districts will follow their example.

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th, 1860. TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
The Golden Age. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH, 1860. TO OUR READERS. IN introducing the first number of THE GOLDEN AGE to the notice of the pub- lic, it may be justly expected that we should say something of the course we intend to pursue. It may then be first stated, that on all political topics our voice will be raised, not in the utterance &nbsp; of an uncertain sound, but in the ear- nest advocacy of thoroughly popular and liberal measures,--avoiding the ex- &nbsp; &nbsp; treme of downright radicalism on the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; one hand, and of narrow conservatism on the other. To chose a middle course in some matters is despicable and cow- ardly; in others it is impracticable. For example, if in a time of iniquitous re- bellion, a subject, fearing the conse- quence of declaring himself on either the side of his sovereign or that of the rebels, were to adopt grounds of neu- trality, we should at once stamp him as a coward and a traitor...
THE MISSION OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
THE MISSION OF THE PRESS. THE erection of the public Press in a neighbourhood where none has hitherto &nbsp; existed, will, if it be skilfully and pru- dently directed to fulfil its proper mis- sion, be regarded by every right thinking man as the commencement of a new and better era, the dawn of brighter days, for every class and interest of the commu- nity. If it be asked, What is the proper mission of the Press? we may answer in a &nbsp; few words, The moral, social, intellectual, and political elevation of the people. And it is an instrument invested with a &nbsp; power equal to the performance of its &nbsp; high and honourable calling. Let us enlarge on this subject, and endeavour more amply to express our views. Con- trast the darkness of the middle ages with the noontide glory of our own times, and at once will be seen how much the art of printing has accom- plished. Since the day when CAXTON pulled and exhibited within the walls of Westminster ...
LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. ARRIVAL OF The Royal Mail Steamer BEHAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. &nbsp; ARRIVAL OF The Royal Mail Steamer BEHAR. From the Goulburn Papers of Wednesday. The P. and O. Company's steamer Behar &nbsp; arrived at King George's sound on the 4th instant. The Adelaide mails were transhipped to the Lady Bird and taken to Adelaide whence we have the following items of news:-- The King of Naples has ordered the total evacuation of Sicily by the royal troops. The king of Sardinia has sent a letter to Garibaldi, requesting him not to attach the continental possessions of the king of Naples; but Garibaldi had left Palermo with a strong force, and it was supposed to be his intention to make a descent on the main land. A new ministry had been formed at Naples, under the new constitution. The Neapolitan armies have taken the oath of allegiance to the new constitution, as have also some of the &nbsp; &nbsp; officers of the navy, the latter on the condition that they shall not be called on to fight against the I...
Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
L0cal Intelligence. INQUEST AT MEJURA.-- On Monday last, an inquest was held before Andrew Morton, Esq., Coroner for the District and a jury empan elled; to enquire into the cause of the death of John Cameron, who had the charge of a sheep station under Wm. Davis, Esq., of Ginin derra. From the evidence of Margaret Cam eron, wife of the deceased, it appears that the latter had experienced a severe attack of the influenza, which had left him weak and with a troublesome short cough. On Sunday, the 26th August, he returned from Gundaroo under the influence of liquor, at the same time bringing a supply of spirits with him, the greater part of which he afterwards drunk; he then went away, and on the following Friday was brought home in a cart from Clarke's public house, at Gundaroo, he was then very sick and ill. William Jackson, a neighbour, had on the previous day brought three bottles of rum, which he had received from Mrs. Clark, and which by desire were &nbsp; left at Camero...
BUNGENDORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
BUNGENDORE. (From our own Correspondent.) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A THUNDER-STORM, accompanied with heavy showers of hailstones, visited us yesterday. It blew from the west and broke every (?) window before it. The hail-storm at first fell as large &nbsp; as marbles, and after a short interval increased to nearly the size of a hen egg. In the course of half an hour, the ground was covered fully two inches deep with them. For some time after the rain fell in torrents, making the plain one sheet of water, filling the rivers and creeks level with the banks; depriving us of all com- &nbsp; munication; and causing our up and down mails to be a day behind time.
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
GOULBURN. (From our own Correspondent) . WE have had an abundance of rain here lately, but very little money. The only apparent activity being in the elements, and in the gold-seekers passing through to the diggings--I beg pardon, we have also had a small amount of activity amongst the petty- foggers, running up little scores at the little stores or any where else, moreover doing a little in the borrowing line too, and then becoming very scarce indeed--hence we have no news worth communicating, every thing in this important town is very dull--proverbially, "as dull as our corporation." &nbsp; &nbsp; A TELEGRAM has just arrived to the effect, that the English Mail has come to hand in the sister colony, we shall, in all probability, have the leading items of news brought by her, to-morrow--in which case I will endeavour to give you an outline to be in time for your first publication, that is, if the roads and creeks will permit of the mail carrying the important docume...
GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
-0- GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) THE WEATHER.--The question might well be asked, are we never to get dry weather again; for we have now had rain for the last three weeks, and no appearance at the present time of its abating. The river has been flooded some five or six times since the rain set in, indeed it has never got to its former level since the rain com- menced, for as soon as it fell a little it rose again. In one week (the last), it rose and fell three times: I have never seen so much rain fall, at one time, as there has been for the last three weeks. On Saturday last, it cleared &nbsp; away a little, but towards afternoon the thunder clouds began to roll up, and it rained very hard through the night. We have had thunder more or less for the last three days; it is still very threatening, and I expect there will be no likelihood of it clearing up until the new moon. &nbsp; &nbsp; CATTLE STEALING seems to be on the in- crease about this quarte...
KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
KIANDRA. (From our own Correspondent.) THE DIGGINGS are progressing favourably. The old ground in the river is still turning out its golden deposits in abundance. The surface diggers, and ground sluicers are also doing well; some difficulty appears to have arisen be- tween the ground sluicers and the river diggers, on account of the tailings from the former run- ning into the others' claims. I cannot see how it will be settled yet, the ground sluicers seem determined to follow the instructions and rights given to them by our late commissioner. THE WEATHER at present is fine, and the river low, finer weather we could not wish for digging purposes, the snow has nearly all disappeared. THE CAMP is becoming a fine place, build- ings going up in every direction, we are going to have a new post office, and I believe the telegraph office is to be under the same roof with the post office. NEW PROVIDENCE is also getting along in the track of the other townships here. Mr. Benjamin is just fin...
Miscellaneous News. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860
Miscellaneous News. A CENTENARIAN.--A woman named Hig- gins has recently died at her residence near Singleton, having reached the extensive age of 104 years. She was born in the year 1756, fifteen years before the birth of the first Napoleon. &nbsp; The Lord Bishop of Sydney and Metro- &nbsp; politan has recently held a visitation at East &nbsp; Maitland, when his lordship was presented with an address from the bishop, clergy, and laity of the diocese of Newcastle. On Sunday morning, the fine clipper ship, British Merchant, was destroyed by fire. She was 900 tons burden, and commanded by Captain Duthie. The British Merchant was lying at Smith's wharf, at the time the fire broke out. Messrs. Crane and Roberts' through line of coaches to Kiandra, is expected to commence running on the 20th instant. The extension will give employment to about 30 drivers and 100 horses. The thoroughfare is not to ex- ceed £10. The criminal, John M'Donald, sentenced to death for t...
