THE BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 3 October 1861

THE BAZAAR. TAi?x?o into consideration the season of the year, the present scarcity of money, and a few other things likely to militate against the success of such an enterprise, the Bazaar of Tuesday and yesterday resulted as favourably as could be anticipated. The stalls, which were provided by the fol lowing ladies, viz., Mrs Hayley (confectionery), Mrs. A. D. and Mrs. G. Soares, Miss Alice Hayley, Miss Howe, and the Misses Rusten, (fancy goods), were erected immediately: be. -hind the,Court house'jrard, the wall of which forming a.yery.convenient back for the same. Tlere was a very'creditable supply of 'fancy materials, and a profusion of those pretty lit tlenick-nacks which always meet with a ready sale on such occasions. There were, likewise, some samples' of amatuer caibinet work, and othei articles which certainly spoke miuch for thieingenuity of those who contri ved them. ;We must not omit to mention the bea~tiful and correct model of the church for. wh''se special benefit ...

KIANDRA. Saturday, September 28th. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 3 October 1861

KIANDRA. (From our own Correspondent.) Saturday,: September 28th: During the greater part of the past week the weather has been beautifully fine; the whole of the late snow has quite disappeared; trade continues dull for want of more customers; and in the price of goods there is no altera tion. On Wednesday last Kiandra was visited by a strange gentleman, I should think about the tallest man that ever entered Kiandra. As he passed through Telegraph-street every eye was upon him, and all were anxious to know who he was, and what was his business. It was soon discovered that the stranger was T. O. S. Green, Esq. (well known in the town of Goulburn, as a bank manager, and as well respected). He had come up for the express purpose of closing the Bank of New South Wales, the only bank here. As soon as his business was known, the inhabitants wished   him elsewhere with his bank-closing propen sities; and the storekeepers began to cry out where will we now get notes from to bu...

INVESTMENTS FOR SMALL CAPITALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 3 October 1861

INVESTMENTS FOR SMALL CAP ITALISTS. . - IT does not appear to be generally known, that those who have small sums of money to invest, say from £100 upwards, can, with the greatest facility and no expense, procure the very safest and most certain security by ?the purchase: of Government Debentures. There. is, even in these comparatively hard times, in the hands of many parties not in business, a good .deal of money, for which ready and eligible secu rity is'bften not available. The simplicity and ease' with which' an investment in debentures is madde, is not the least bof its recommenda tions. All that is necessary for any person to do who haiis, say' £100 to `lend; is simply to write a note directed to the Colonial Treasurer, before 12' o'clock on the appointed day., Some thing like the following: "Sir,-I will give you £900'10s.'for one de benture of £100. : '( Jour' Surer.; "10 Blank-street,.

A COAL MINE AT THE OVENS RIVER.- Some miners residing at Morse's Creek, while rospecting the ranges skirting the Ovens River, in search of a quartz reef, came upon a splendid vein of coal, cropping out on the surface, nearly three feet wide. It is well situate for carting, and the parties intend ap- plying for a lease of the ground.-Ovens Ch. THE STRIKE AT NEWCASTLE.-In our issue of Saturday last, we stated that a meeting of the proprietors was held in Sydney on the pre- vious day, when it was resolved that another interview should take place between the dele- gates and managers; and this came off at the Borehole yesterday, when some of the matters in dispute were satisfactorily arranged with the exception of the remuneration question. As regards the rate of wages to be paid by the miners, a proposal was made on a new basis, which will necessitate a consideration of it by the colliers at each of the mines separately, and should it meet wilh their approval, mat- ters may be very spee...

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.]   Sir,--A son of the Emerald Isle, once des- cribing a pugilistic encounter, observed, "The   first time he hit him he missed him, and the next time, he caught him in the same place." This is a very fair description of the style and substance of a letter in your last signed TRUTH, which is the most audacious epistle that has appeared in the AGE ever since the morning of its first ap- pearance. In fact, your insertion of it would have scarcely been justifiable had it not been for the very fair and sensible foot note appended to it. I am no particular friend of the chief-consta- ble. But I cannot see a useful officer caluminated, and be silent, especially as I am in a position to give another version of the matter TRUTH com- plains of, whose NOM DE GUERRE, by the by, woul...
