LAMBING FLAT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 September 1861

LAMBING FLAT. (Fronm our own Correspondent.) The diggings are still going along steadily, the greatest attraction at the present time is Chance Gully near the town of Young, many are doing well there. Another new rush has taken place at Windsor Gully, about two miles from Tipperary Gully, and on the Bathurst road, it is paying well to those who are on the lead, as much as two ounces to the tub. The diggers in general are quiet, but a   great many cases of store robberies and sticking-up have occurred of late. The whole of the police have returned and are quartered at the camp; while Tipperary Gully, a place sounded throughout the colonies as being notorious, remains without a single blue jacket being stationed upon it, and if anything happen here, we have to travel a distance of three miles to beg police protection. The diggers of Burrangong have great reason to complain, and also the storekeepers, for it is a hard case for a storekeeper or man in any kind of business t...

HUMAN ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 September 1861

HUMAN ELECTRICITY. -IT appears that the human body is, a source of electricity, iin the same sense as glass, wax," or hair ; so that it can be elicited even' if the body is insulated on a glass stool, whereas a machine requires to stand on'the ground. The best informed do not pretend to' say whether human electricity is the same thing as chemi cal-for no one pretends to understand the essential nature of either-but those laws and modes of operation which are ascertained are similar. In some persons electricity is much more freely elicited than in others. During the winter of 1683 the wife of Major Sewell, in`New England, had but to shake her appa rel in the evening, and.sparks flew out with a sparkling noise like bay leaves in the fire. Soie ladies ° in this .country, during frosty weather, can see sparks if they shake th'eii woollen skirts while ,ixudressinog in the diark'; and it is very common to see them if a silk skirt is' rapidly slipped down, over a woollen one, after being w...
