QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
QUEANBEYAN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] WE have had several heavy showers of rain through the week, but not enough to do harm. At the pre sent the weather seems taken up. Business as usual, seems very dull. Mrs Edmond Walsh had a publican's license granted her by the bench, on Tuesday last, for the house in Monaro Street, and lately known as the Railway Stores. The sign is to be the Victoria Hotel. I believe it will not be opened till Monday &nbsp; next. A gentleman residing in Queanbeyan on receiving a letter from L. F. De Salis, Esq., M.P., says the "Government will place on the estimates for the re pairs of our roads from Boro to Queanbeyan, as No. 2 road £25 per mile, and the road from Gundaroo to here £7 per mile. I believe the money usually granted was £7 a mile for the Boro road and £4 a mile for the Gundaroo road, so we may look forward soon to have good roads. W.. C. Bennett, Esq., Commissioner for Roads, arrived here to-day on his route to Cooma. Sep. 12th, 1867.

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
Colonial Extacts. THE CONVICT BERTRAND.-The English mail via Suez has brought out the dicision of the Privy Council in the case of the Queen v. Bertrand. It will be remembered that Louis Bertrand was tried in 1865 for the murder of Henry Kinder, whose wife was Bertrand's paramour. The case at that time created the most intense excitement. On the first trial the jury could not agree, and the prisoner was remanded until the following assizes. When he was arraigned the second time, the notes of evidence taken by the Chief Justice at the first trial were, at the request of the prisoner's counsel, read over to the various witnesses, and the counsel both for the Crown and the defence had the opportunity of re- examining them if it was thought necessary. The jury, after a short deliberation, found the prisoner guilty, and he was sentenced to be executed At the commencement of the ensuing term Mr Solo- mons, on behalf of the prisoner, moved for and ob- tained a rule nisi for new trial, on t...

The Independent. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th, 1867. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE meeting on Thursday of persons inter &nbsp; ested in the introduction into the streams of the Braidwood district of that king of Aus australian fresh-water fish, the Murray river cod, was followed by results that look very like a promise of the speedy realisation of the desirable object the association has in view. The attempts hitherto made have been futile because immature. Now that the matter is taken up by persons of well-known solicitude for the advancement of local interests, as well as of extensive influence and means, there is sufficient to lead to a fair presumption that the project will yet be realised. Whether we regard the introduction of the cod for the purpose of affording an innocent and exhilarating recreation to the angler, or as a means of furnishing our tables with a delicacy not in ferior to the salmon or trout of the British Isles, the object of the association is deserv ing of every encou...
ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
ARALUEN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] THURSDAY. — At the Police Court to-day there were several cases of no public interest. The case against James Connors, for wilfully breaking a window was dismissed. — Frank Johnson was charged with using indecent and obscene language, against W. H. Johnson, of the London Tavern. The prosecutor not wishing to press the charge the case was dis- missed. — A wages case, E. Emery v. W. Brennan, was heard. Verdict for plaintiff, £8 12s. These cases was heard before the police magistrate, who has returned from Sydney. Mr. E. Alley sustained a dislocation of his shoul- der, last Monday week, by being thrown from a dray. &nbsp; I forgot to mention in my last the case of the poor boy, John Daveux, whose horse fell with him in crossing a log. Mr. Blatchford kindly did all for him that humanity could suggest, but the conse- quences proved fatal. He died a week ago.
DU CHAILLU'S LATEST ABOUT THE GORILLA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
DU CHAILLU'S LATEST ABOUT THE GORILLA. ON May 17, M. Du Chaillu delivered be fore the Society for the Advancement of Science in New York, a full account of hiq adventures in hunting and capturing gorillas in Africa. If was one of the most interesting discourses respecting the brute creation ever listened to, and was as follows : The immense forests of the equatorial regions, where wild roots and berries abound, seem well adapted for the home of the man-like ape which I met in those regions, among which rank first the goril la, or "the wild man with a club." The record of the voyage of Hanno, a Cartha genian admiral, is one of the most curious fragments of antiquity remaining to us. His voyage is supposed to have occurred six centuries before Christ, though some critics place it at a much later period. He was sent by the government of Carthage to cir.. cumnavigate the African continent. His journal begins with the following sentence, which sufficiently relates the object of his voyag...

LOOKING UNDER THE BED. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
LOOKING UNDER THE BED. (From the Ladies' Own Journal.) IT is the habit of many persons to look under the bed before retiring for the night. Mrs. Evergreen, my beloved wife, indulges, if indulgence it can be called, in this particular practice. I do not object to it in the least, so long as she does not enforce the performance upon myself; but when, as is sometimes the case, she forgets it until she has put out the light and ensconced herself under the coun- terpane, I think, that it is hard that I, who am not troubled with nervous apprehensiveness, should have to get out in the cold and do it for her. I have often remarked to Mrs. Evergreen, whom I have seen prying under the bed, that it was a silly habit, and the sooner she gave it up the better. To this gentle admonition my better half invariably rejoins-" La, Evergreen ! what harm does it do ? It's a kind of satisfaction to know :that nobody 'is under there, and then I don't think of such a' horrible thing after I'm in bed." "I t...
AN UNWELCOME VISITOR. A STORY OF BACKWOODS' LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
AN UNWELCOME VISITOR. A STORY OF BACKWOODS' LIFE. AMONG the first settlers of a northern town ship in Maine was a man of the name of Simon Rolfe. Born in one of the then fron tier towns, he had become early inured to backwoods' life, its hardships and dangers; and as he grew up to manhood there was none in the settlement, far or near, who could do a greater day's work felling or piling trees, or was accounted a better hunter, than young Rolfe. At the age of twenty-two he married a daughter of one of his neighbours, built a cabin and went to work for himself on a tract of land ;adjoining his father's. Here he remained for seven years ; and at the end of that time, allured by the reports that were brought of the great fertility of the land far ther to the northward, he set out with his wife and two children, one four, and the other .six years of age, through the almost unbroken forest, for the distant township, which they reached without any adventure worthy of being recorded. Prior t...
A GRAND OLD POEM. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
A GRAND OLD POEM. Who shall judge a man from manners ? &nbsp; Who shall know him by his dress ? Paupers may be fit for princes, Princes fit for something less. Crumpled shirt and dirty jacket May clothe the golden ore Of the deepest thoughts and feelings-- Satin vests could do no more. There are springs of crystal nectar Ever welling out of stone; There are purple buds and golden, Hidden, crushed, and overgrown. God, who counts by souls, not dresses, Loves and prospers you and me, While He values thrones the highest But as pebbles in the sea. Man, upraised above his fellows, Oft forgets his fellows then; Masters, rulers, lords, remember That your meanest kind are men-- Men by labour, men by feeling. Men by thought, and men by fame, Claiming equal rights to sunshine, In a man's ennobling name. There are foam-embroidered oceans, There are little well-clad rills, There are feeble inch-high saplings, There are cedars on the hills; God, who counts by souls, not stations, Loves an...

BRAIDWOOD POLICE COURT. Thursday, September 12th.; (Before J. W. Bunn, T. Stuart, and R. Maddrell, J P's ) A CASE OF FIDDLING.-James Ellis was sum moned by William Bell, for assaulting him on Satur day last, at Major's Creek. Mr. Fell appeared for complainant and Mr. Scarvell for defendant. The complainant's face showed unmistakable signs of rough usage, appearing as though the badge of the royal tattoo had been conferred upon him by the " King of the cannibal islands." It appeared from the evidence that complainant was in the George Hotel on the evening of the day in question when the defendant came in, tapped him on the shoulder, asked him outside, and requested him to settle a little bill ; complainant declining he was threatened with a summons, which called forth language of the superlative degree, and actions of a very low degree, for the next moment they were both wallowing in the mire. Complainant said when he came outside he turned away from him. He (de fendant) then rushed ...
Letters to the Editor. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
Letters to the Editor. &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. Sir,--The Braidwood Correspondent of the Sydney Empire has made some very pertinent remarks on the self- constituted deputation to the Minister for Works, advocating the Goulburn in preference to the Marulan route from Braidwood to the Railway, in which he has clearly shown that the said deputation have not been authorised to act in the matter and have advocated principles diametrically opposed to the interests and opinions of the bulk of the inha bitants of this district. Both you and your con temporary published an account of the interviews &nbsp; between the Hon. Mr. Byrnes and the deputation, but I have looked in vain for any editorial remarks on the subject from either and am at a loss to account for your silence. Surely it is the duty of the Press to watch over the welfare of the community at large and more particularly of that portion by which it is surrounded. A subject o...
