Local Intelligence.     POLICE COURT. (Before the Police Magistrate and Henry   Hall, Esq., J.P.). Breach of Impounding Act.     Henry Kennedy appeared on summons to   answer the complaint of Thomas Rutledge, Esq., of Molonglo, of having unlawfully en tered upon the lands of complainant and attempted to drive off cattle without having given previous notice, as required by law. Defendant denied the charge. Mr. Freestone, who appeared on behalf of complainant, said he would have no difficulty   in proving the case to the satisfaction of the Bench, and he was instructed by his client to ask for an infliction of the heaviest damages, as he was particularly anxious to put a stop to the practice of trespassing on his lands, which defendant and many others were   guilty of. Complainant was then put in the witness box, and proved that having occasion to be out on his run on the 1st instan...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 August 1861

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Mr. Editor, Sir,--I was grieved, shocked, and surprised, to find an article in your last week's   paper, called "Passion and Principle." What   the purport was of that severe, sarcastic, and bit- ter draught to slack the appetite of the public, who ever thirst after something new, I was at a loss to tell, and few could imagine. Whether it be to put down singing classes or not, I cannot say;   but one thing is certain,--the thin gauze-like veil that enshrouds the actors in that dramatic per- formance enables the most disinterested spectator to decipher the "dramatis personæ" in their     several realities. Such an article I little thought could have found its way into public journal un- der your supervision. Scandal is ever ready with her cloven tongue to multiply and disseminate the slightest error in conduct or conversation, and we should thus be the more careful to guard against publi...

Letters to the Editor.       [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed under this head, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] REMARKS ON MEN AND THINGS.     TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--There are certain principles which actuate all mankind. The more elevating and ennobling the principle, the higher and   purer the soul it emanates from; whilst the sordid and grovelling spirit only delights to pander to the morbid appetite of its kindred clay. Individuals possessing one or other   of these temperaments are to be found all over the habitable globe, in greater or less   numbers; the more liberal and educated the   people, the more abundantly will the "truly great" be met with; and, where despotism and ignorance reign amongst the masses, the very opposite claim redundance. The two characters depicted in the fore-   going p...
