THE STRANGE STORY OF RISK ALLAH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 September 1868

THE STRANGE STORY OF RISK ALLAH. (From the Glasgow Mail.) TaI suit of Risk Allah, the Anglicised Ottoman, against the proprietors of the Daily Telegraph, is remarkable mainly on three grounds-the curious career of the plaintiff, the droll verdict of the jury as res pects the amount of damages which they assigned, and the exposition of the law of libel made by the Lord Chief-Justice, both as bearing on the peculiar circumstances of the case, and the privileges of the press generally. Risk Allah is a Syrian, aged forty-five. For so young a man he has seen a deal of life, and has mixed with a great many queer people. Many years ago he came over to London bent upon the study of medicine. With that view he passed the usual curriculum, walking the London hospitals, and obtaining his diploma shortly before the outbreak of the Crimean war. He first found employment in the east as medical attendant upon the Turkish forces commanded by Omar Pasha. At Eupatoria he distinguished himself under f...

COPPER TOKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 26 September 1868

COPPER TOKENS. From. the Empire. TiHE Del?uty-Master of the MIint is pre pared to issue the new bronze pennies which arrived a few days since in the Riflenlan, and to receive the old British copper coins and tokens on the following conditions: Old British coins at a premium of two per cent. on their nominal value---that is, for five pounds' worth of old pennies the De puty.Master of the Mint will give £5 2s in exchange. Tokens will be taken at the rate of 8th weight of tokens for 240 Impe rial bronze pennies. This will be as nearly as possible an exchange of penny for penny -a new bronze coin for an old token. It will be seen that the'termns are of so.liberal a character that no appreciable loss, will be incurred by the holders' of .tokens, and that those who, in conducting their businiss, have had sense enough to take.them during the late panic, will have no reason to regret having done so.

RELIGIOUS HATREDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 26 September 1868

RELIGIOUS HATREDS. (Fromn the Yass Courier.) THE word "union" when applied to social organisations, implies "disunion;" that is, a combination which separates itself from its externals, and which has something in com-r mon not in common with those who form no part of it. We have had plenty of these " unions" of late, some publicly marked by defined boundaries, others that exist more from sympathy and secret consent than by any exposition of their principles. They have ever proved to be either the happiness or torment of mankind. Whether those which have been perceptible in the present day tended more towards the latter than the former character, we leave the reader to decide for himself ; we may, however, ex press our own opinion by legitimate infer ences. It will not be denied that the happi ness of mankind is best secured when brethren dwell in unity, when shortcomings or defects are treated in the spirit of Christianity, and are sought quietly to be reconciled to what is advantag...

The Age. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 26 September 1868

: . ' SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th, 1868.

Unfortunately in the colonies'. we but too often find hovering around us those whlose appearance would indicate a true know ledge, if not of politeness, at least of -becoming conduct towards others, but who notwithstanding are ever :ready to join. in any kind of annoyance to, or :destroy the property of others not fearing detection or having to suffer .the disgrace iwhich attaches to unprincipled 'conduct. The common- term of that we allude to is "'rowdyism" or "flashness,". which' cer thin young fellows indulge in to the injury and annoyance of society: and .by. such methods as render it difficult to. detect the real culprits thus guilty of: provoking, cowardly, and, in many cases, inhuman conduct towards the prey selected for the amnusement of the...

Dale, Esq., J.P.,) in the chair, the follow ing hints anent artificial grasses were given by the President, observing, he could best afford them information by relating the result of his 'experience extending over twenty-five years. He could point to the spot where the first bunch of white or Dutch clover was seen in the district, though how it got there no person knew; but it went on spreading and increasing, and :at the time it was thought much of. But their object was to get something better-some thing that would stand a dry summer and a severe winter-and the clover flourished well in the spring, but dried up quickly in the summer. By-and-by they saw an old bunch *of rye-grass, which spread by degrees, and now in some places they found it had driven everything else away. They might even see it in their streets. He believed no grass was better tha...
