Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE       ---0---   THE NEW MAIL CONTRACTS.--Mr. James   O'Neill of this town, saddler, has entered into partnership with Mr. Thomas Moran in the Cooma, Goulburn and Braidwood mails, and notwithstanding the low figure of the tenders at which the new mail contracts are taken, it is their intention to carry out the same in a creditable manner, even though the task may be a difficult and ill-paid one. Mr. O'Neill has held a sub-contract for the Lan yon mail from Mr. Moran since that branch has been established, and as far as we are aware, has done his work satisfactorily. Our readers are already aware that, on the 1st. instant, a new contract came into opera tion for mail service six times a week, in place of three as heretofore. The additional service is performed by Mr. T. Moran; rumour says, at a low figure. We have had a peep at the time table (a copy of which so far as it relates to Queanbeyan is given...

SUPPRESSION OF CATTLE STEALING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

S7UPTPRESSION OF CAT'T'LE STEALING. IN another portion of our paper will be found an advertisement issued by an Association for the suppression of the above crime. ,'Of all the ills which in fect our social` system we cannot point to one calling so loudly for redress, or whlich so imperatively demiands 'lhe most rigorous measures for its suppres sion, as the.daily increasing crime of horse and cattle.stealing. In this dis trict it has now beco6iie gigantic in its proportions; and, as.if gatliering fresh strength from the impunity with which those systematically engaged in this ne firions occupation, are suflered to go unpunished and at large. Each aic count we receive of the raids and forays of these law defiant' mamauders becomes more daring and extensive in': its character,-we refer to a paragraph in our present issiLc,-by wlhiclh it will be seen that fifteei' horses, the property of Mr. Rutledge, Mr Wriglht, and others, were taken off the Dirty Swamp, and last seen on their way t...

THE BANKS. (To the Editor of the Golden Age.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

THE BANKS (To the Editor of the Golden Age.) Sir,--Can you or any one else give the rea- son why some of the neighbouring banks charge sixpence for cashing a cheque drawn on on a bank in another district? In this place different persons have their money in different banks. When a cheque is issued for a sum on the Queanbeyan or Yass banks, if it is sent to Goulburn, the banks there charge sixpence for cashing. Now I have myself cashed a Goul- burn cheque at the bank in Queanbeyan, and nothing was deducted from it. Therefore what can be the reason for the former bank charg- ing for cashing the cheques on the latter, while that does not observe the same practice with them? Perhaps the reply will be, that it is   to pay postage. If so, the public are under great obligations to the excellent manager of the Queanbeyan bank for cashing their cheques free of charge for postage. But apart from that, a twopenny stamp will carry a letter with a cheque to any part of the colony; an...

For a considerable time it has seemed to me a great pity that an interesting town like Queanbeyan should remain without a Me- hanics' Institution or Public Library, or even a Reading Room. If the golden age (I don't mean your excellent paper,) has commenced, and no one can doubt it, Young Australia must advance morally and intellectually, and in proportion as the town rises in impor...

Provincial News. GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

-Provincial News. GOULBURN. (From our own Correspondent) A mercantile house in this place has sus payment; liabilities are said to be not less than twenty thousand pounds.. Last evening, the Goulburn and Yass coach in returning to Goulburn ran up against a stump, was capsized and broken, the passen gers frightened and bruised; fortunately there was no serious injury to life or limb. The coach was driven by Mr. George Roberts--the night was dark and the lamps not lighted; the accident happened about four miles from Goulburn, where the passengers had to remain for about three hours before they could be con veyed to town. A telegram has been forwarded from Syd ney to day, stating that a fire had broke out in the Prince of Wales Theatre this morning, which is proving a very disastrous affair, de stroying the surrounding property including Tolano's public house. The loss cannot at present be estimated. October 3rd, 1860.

Provincial News. GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 October 1860

----o GOULBURN. (From our ozon Correspondent.) THE great event here is the opening a Ba zaar, in aid of a building to be used as a school and a place of worship, at the north end of the town, in connexion with the Church of Eng land. It is held in a commodious tent, sixty feet by about twenty, having for one side the gaol wall with the other side open; built in the shape of a huge skilling and tastefully de corated with green boughs, &c., in which is placed four or five tables loaded with every description of fancy article and presided over by fair templers enticing you to unloose your purse- strings, and buy articles you would never think of purchasing at any other place. Vast numbers have visited it to day, and so far the undertaking is a decided success. Some nefarious imp of humanity not 'alto gether liking the success to be a oife sided affair, managed to divert some ready cash to his or her especial use; one lady had a'little more than four pounds thus taken from the p...

THE GREAT EASTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 October 1860

THE GREAT _EASTERN. A?MONGST the many marvels and great achievements of practical science with which our: age and 'generation is so fruitful, nio uundertaking of the day 'has more'claims upon the notice of. the in telligent reader than the late trip of the Great' Eastern from Southampton to New York. . The successful voyage across ?the Atlantic of this leviathan amongst ships may be looked upon not only as a significant proof of the powers of mechanical genius when aided by enterprising perseverance and energy, but it also may be considered as the permanent settlement of a great nauti cal query, whether or not a large-vessel can be rendered equally' manageable as a small one ? And' the answer to this _is - found in the account of the Great Eastern's first voyage to the Unit ed States, which she accomplished in eleven days. Although this is by no means the quickest passage on record-r-= the Cunard steamers almost invariably :making it in less time,-she:has, never theless, fully reali...

..moo- W IEDNESDAY-OCTOBER 8. , In the Legislative Council the business was of little. importance. TE.E PANAMA ROUTE. On the ,motion of Mr. Weekes leave was given to-bring in a bill to amend the Panama Itoute Postal Act of 1858. REPEAL OF THE GOLD DUTY. Mr. Weekes -moved the suspension of the Standing Orders to permit the passiug through all stages in one day the necessary acts to re peal the gold duty. If the Government had been left to themselves they would not have moved in this matter with any view to its coming into force before the 81st December; but the Deputy Master of the mint had advised the course now proposed. As the duty had to be repealed, it was very desirable that it should be done in one day, and for this reason the. present motion was made. After some observations from Mr. Fors ter, Mr. Plunkett, Mr. Wilson, Mr, Samuel and Mr. Arnold, the House divided, pad the motion was carried by 30 to 8. The bills were subsequently brought up,` read a first time, and ordered to...

REPORT OF A 400 oz. NUGGET FOUND AT KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 October 1860

REPORT OF A 400 oz. NUGGET FOUND AT KIANDRA. M?r. J. J. Wright called at our office this morning, stating that he had just received a communication from his manager at Kiandra, dated the 6th instant, in which he mentions the discovery of a nugget weighing'400 ozs. The letter was hurriedly written, and did not give particulars. We give the account merely for what it is worth, confessing ourselves slow to: believe what we hear. Still, coming fromthe source it does, a hope may be enter tained, that the report is true, and if it be, it will certainly have a tendency to raise the spirits of many who, from the recently indif ferent accounts received from the Snowy River, have begun. to think less favourably of the auriferous character of these Alpine regions. The escort, which arrived here on Monday last brought 1448 ozs. 3 dwts. 20 grs. being, about average yield.

There has been another expedition under Major Hutchins, who. marched out with 500 men; came up with the enemy; did next to nothing; and 'came back in double-quick time. Governor Gore Brown has rsceived a despatch from Sir Cornwall Lewis, home secretary for the colonies, in an swer to a demand upon the imperial govern ment for a reinforcement of three regiments of infantry, and one of artillery, wherein the minister states, that in the present position of home affairs it is impossible to comply with the de...

Parties going through Gininderra will have to cross the Queanbeyan river, and from the information we have just alluded to, it would appear that the present crossing place is far from good; but prov...
