LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. DIsoLviNca VIEWS.-Messrs Alexander Brothers exhibited their views on three occasions on last. week. One of the exhibitions, that of Friday afternoon, intended especially for juveniles, was largely patro nised; the children of the Public School, numbering upwards of sixty, who were invited to attend by ,the members of the Local Board, and some of the pupils belonging to the English Church School, forming the greater part of the assemblage. The astrnomi cal views, showin the diurnal and annual motions of the earth, the phases of the moon and venus, the causes of total and partial eclipses of the moon, the comparative sizes of he sun and his planets, &c., *were generally adimired. The remainder of the views. were not up to mark, some of them betraying vague ness, of outline and definition towards the edges, the mark of inferior or circumscribed lenses used in the pf'oduction of the transparencies.

STORY OF A FIRST KISS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
STORY OF A FIRST. KISS. IN the University of Upsala Sweden, lived a younig student, a lonely youth, with a great love for studies, but without means of pursuing them. He was poor and without connec ions; still he studied on, living in great poverty, but keeping up a cheerful heart, and trying not to look at the future, which looked so ,grimly at him. His good humour gd good qualities made him beloved by his comrades. Once he was .standing with some of them in the great square of Upsala, prating away an hour of leisure, when the attention of the young men became arrested by a very young and elegant lady, who, at the side of an eldery one, walked slowly over the place. It -was the daughter of the Governor of 'Ipland, residing in the city, and the lady with her was her governess. ,She was (most known for her good -ness and gentleness of character, and was looked upon with admiration by the students. As the young men now stood silently gazing at her, as she passed on like a graceful vis...
PARLIAMENTARY REPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
PARLIAMENTARY REPORTING. Tins following description (together with two full-page engravings) of the reporters' gallery and room in the House of Commons appeared in a recent number of the Illus trated London News. The report of last Monday evening's debate in the House of Commons filled nearly twenty columns of the Times on Tuesday morning: and it has often happened that when the House sits until two or three o'clock in the morning, from four o'clock in the afternoon-its usual hour of commencing business on four days of the week-the re port printed in the next publication of the daily newspapers has extended to a much . greater length, sometimes occupying more than four pages, each of six columns. This, of course, depends on the importance of the subjects debated, and of the speakers who take part in the discussion. In general, the speeches of all the cabinet ministers and of the most influential mem bers of the opposition are'reported word for - ..word, preserving the same grammatic...
ON SERMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
ON SERMONS. (From the . lfelbourne Spectator.) IN nothing is the force of habi't more plainly exhibited than in the docility with which the church-going public resign'themselves to the weekly infliction of 'a sermon. `Some even go so far 'as to sit out two; 'but these must. be persons of more than ordinary endurance or tendency to sleep. It does .not. matter whether the gentleman demanding -their attention is fitted by nature and culture to act -the part of teacher or not; he may talk sense or the reverse; he may cause them to doze over his platitudes, or excite 'their attention by the energy with which' he pours forth' the torrent of his vituperative elo quence, and the gusto with which: he con-. signs a rival church to destruction': one thing, at all events, is certain-the average Briton must sit out the appointed half-hour, or any longer tirie the preacher may'thiiik fit to detain him every Sunday morning,. in accordance with a fixed and unalterable law of his nature.

ON AGRICULTURE.—INTRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
ON AGRIOULTURE.-INTRODUCTION. (.From the Australasian.) FEW Victorians of the present day question the national utility of agriculture; as ..a means of affording customers to the various trades and professions it has an undoubted pre-eminence, its powers being ever capable of extension. Under a proper system of agriculture thousands of families 'would raise their sustenance on the now compara tively boundless and barren acres, thereby diffusing a stream of life over the arid wil derness, and extending the area and import ance of towns coming within the scope of its immediate influence. But how can we arrive at this desirable consummation? Agricultural economy and prodigality make all the difference between success and failure, even on the most approved system, and under the most favourable natural con ditions; and this is especially observed in a region where the climate is capricious, and the lisadvantages of pioneering have to be encouraged : add to these the drawbacks of' partial...

THE ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF THE CZAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
TUE ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF THE CZAR. the afternoon of the 6th inst, a n1e dastardly attempt was' made-to as sassiuiatu the Czar, while he with his two o a ithe Emperor Napoleon were re Iuruhi nu a carriage from. a military re ve ; t e Champ de Mars. This review" Was the most splendid ever witnessed in France. Eighty thousand cavalry and infantry marched before the Emperors and four hundred and fifty thousand peo ple were, on the ground to see the mag nificient display. As carriages contain ing the Royal Party were passing through the Bois de Boulogne, a young man about twenty years of age, fired a pistol at the Czar. It would seem that the pistol was over loadud, and exploded, wounding the hand of the assassin. It is said that a bystander threw up the arm of the wretch as he fired the pistol, and that he was instantly cut down by the escort, and made a prisoner, severely wounded. The villan proved to be a Pole named Ber ginuki, and the people became so enraged against him that "...

WILLEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 August 1867
WILIEROO. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] On Monday, the 22nd of July, there was a strange fact occurred at- Willeroo, Lake George, the:resi dence of the Messrs, Cooper. On the .said day, Mr Volney Cooper: was engaged in shooting a bullock when a diseased dog, and seveaal other dogs, got in to the yard-and would notget out of the way, where upon Mr Cooper fired at the dog and killed it, and immediately the other dogs gathered around him as it to render any assistance he might need. But it was too late, all was over, the dog wasldead. The dog was then tied to the tail of the dray and dragged some considerable distance followed by about twenty large Kangaroo dogs. It was indeed a strange sight to behold, and it convinced those who saw it of the fact that there must be a sort of sympathy even amongst the canine race. The mourners who followed evinced their deep sorrow for their now deceased mate in a most pitiful manner by giviug vent to deafening howls that rent the air with their continuous ...

AMERICA. The money market is easy. President Johnson has been badly received in travelling; he made speeches at various places, and declared for a complete restoration of the lUnion, and said that if it was successfully carried out he would retire from public life and further ambition. American ships have been seized at Montreal for navigating the St. Lawrence without permits, re quired since the abrogation of the, reciprocity treaty. There is much sensation on the matter: in New York. "
CONTINENTAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 August 1867
CQNTINENTAL. The.Luxemburg treaty is considered only a truce; it is believed that no good feeling was generated be tween France and Prussia by the visit of the King of Prussia to Napoleon ; the visit is regarded as cere monious, and an European war is predicted. The Emperor of Russia and his two sons were enthusiastically received in Paris by the Emperor Napoleon and the people, but he was afterwards insulted by those favourable to Polish nationality. Half a dozen crowned heads and heirs were present at the races at Longchamps. The King of Prussia and Count Bismarck arrived in Paris on the 6th June, and were received in great state by Napoleon, his ministers, and the marshals of the empire. There was a grand review.of fifty-five thousand men at Longchamps, in honour of the Czar of Russia and the King of Prussia, directed by Marshal Canrobert, which passed off with great eclat. At the trial of the Pole for the attempted assassi nation of the Czar, he expressed his regret at not being...
