OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT'S LETTER. Sydney, August 1st, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
'OUR SPECIAL CORRgSPONDENT'SI LETTER. Sydney, August 1st, .1868. -STRANGE .to relate, the first week the events of which you-have retained me to record for; the amusement of your readers, offers nothing worth recording. Sydney is as dull and void of .life, as any bush township in the far interior, and so doubtless it will remain until the assembling of Parliament, a month hence. This day week there were some races on the Raudwick course, got up by the Colonel and officers of the 50th regiment, but they passed off very flatly, and the horses as a rule, were a wretched lot of animals with no go in them;, there was, however,;-. a good attendance of spectators, and thimble-riggers and other: sharpers were more than usually active, and reaped a fine harvest. .. The village of Ryde, some few miles from here, has been brought into notice by some twenty-seven enthusiasts holding an equestrian procession there on a recent Sunday, and riding to church in military order with one of their. numb...

The Age. SATURDAY, AUGUST 8th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
SATURDAY, AUGUST 8th, 1868. THE last quarter's account of the revenue of the colony published for general infor mation shows a decrease of. £25,000 as compared with the corresponding quarter of. 1867. This is] not a; very flattering account of the ways and means as esti mated for. by the present. Colonial Trea surer. The depression of the times has in a great measure, no doubt, led to the -.falling off of the revenue in some parti culars, yet these accidents and circum stanc~sought to be provided for in order : to keep afloat the necessary capital which should flow with steadiness and regularity into the channel of the revenue proper. At this rate of going on, at the end of the year a very large deficiency, will accrue, and which must of necessity be the cause of delay in public .works and carrying out the proper administration of affairs. The first item of consideration is the customs receipts where the falling off is stated to be £16,000 only. . The customs, be it re membered, is ...

THE PLUNDER FROM MAGDALA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
THE PLUNDER FROM MAGDALA. On the 20th were sold all the articles of plunder taken at Magdala. Individuals had been called on to surrender everything which they had appropriated from the 10th to the day on which we burnt the place, a few ex ception only being made, after investigation, in favour of those who had stripped spoils from men they had themselves slain in com bat. The proceeds of the auction are to be divided amongthe men only the commisioned officers having resigned their share of the booty. From the accumulated heap of loot each regiment and battery was allowed to choose a souvenir. The objects most prized were three silver kettle drnms, and these were so keenly sought by the different mes ses, that Sir Robert ordered each to be cut in two, and their halves to be allotted to six regiments. At the sale most articles of European manufacture went low, but high prices were realised for native produce. Shield of 'ruffalo hide ornamented with broad silver plates, fetched £15 ea...

THE CHEROKEE ROSE FOR HEDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
ThE CHEROKEE ROSE FOR HEDGES. TaE following is an extract from the letter of Mr J. W. Morttn, of Tirranna, Goul.. burn, to the Australasian : "On the Tirranna estate, where I am now employed, it grows magnificently,, a fact which I have taken advantage of to re commend it to my employer as the ne plust ultra of hedge plants, and, as a consequence, have recently planted a quarter of a mile of it to form a division fence in a,large culti vation paddock. " As the method of preparing land for the reception ot the intended Lhedge: may prove useful, as also the mode of planting the cuttings (for it is by cuttings'alone that I recommend it being done), I proceed to give it : " Presuming a hedge of this kind to be planted in the 'bush,' the first "object should be to grub up and remove all trees from the proposed line of hedge, and a couple of months or so previous to planting, break up the land as deeply as possible with a plough and strong team (a bullock team might perhaps answer best fo...

DISCRETION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
DISOIRETION. WHAT, in a moral sense, is called tact, is, when joined to wickedness, the most hateful, but when joined to goodness, the inost amiable quality belonging to man. Thero is a rough;: unfriendly manner of doing a kindness, which is unfit to be'. usedi to a common beggar, but which pains and disgusts the man of honour.. There: is another, well meant; perhaps; but rude, indelicate manner, whereby the benefit: loses its power to give pleasure, or to con ciliate the one on whom it is besow'ed ; and it becomes to him a new.:and often a more oppressive burden than the one from which it was intended to relieve:him. h ". You are -riding a good and very quiet horse,"' said Turenne to one of his oiicers, n ho was, in fact, mounted on an old and worthless animal, but. who was too poor to provide himself with aibetter.'.

SECTARIAN POLITICAL ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1868
SECTARIAN POLITICAL ASSOCIA. TIONS. THANKS to the efforts of a few energetic partizans, anew element is being introduced into colonial social life in the form of Pro testant and Catholic Political Associations. Time was when Australians could dis pense with such things; but the quietncss and good feeling hitherto pervading colonial society was, it would appear, too tame and flat to suit the tastes of some of our patri >tic fellow-colonists, and now they would fain introduce the sectarian animosities and party feuds of the old country into this fair land of ours-worthy and loyal citizens truly ! The government ought to abolish the ballot-box and institute a few fairs in the year, then these political associates would have an occasional opportunity of displaying their physical Christianity. That there were persons in the commu nity imbued with sentiments of bigotry and intolerance is a fact that society was long cognizant of.' But it would have been thought that amongst a people po...
