The Age. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3rd, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 3 October 1868
- . SATURDA'Y, OCTOBERR Ord, 1808. . T'iiE resignation of the Colonial Spcretary is certainly one of those events which happen when least expected; finding, as we do, that within a few days.after the honorable gentleman stated to his con.. stituency at Kiama that the most perfect harmony and good will exristed. in the cabinet he very quietly resigns, because (as is alleged) his views were not to be carried out in opposition to those' of his colleagues. Thus the MARTIN and PARIlES coalition ministry may be said to be vir tually dissolved, and we have now to look forward to the day when the retired statesman will .launch forth his powers.

THE KIAMA MYSTERY EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 3 October 1868
THE KIAbMA' MYSTERY,ýEXPLA[NED:" From the Earmpire.-_ THE time is not far distant when public curi osity on the subject of that part of the speech made by Mr Parkes at Kiama relative to the attack on Prince Alfred; will have to be satis-' fiedby the production of the expected docu mentary evidence. However:great the curi osity which has prevailed, it will be much lessened when it is known that a principal part at least oat the information given has been derived, as we always suspected was the case, from sources of so suspicious aicharacter as to: lead to the supposition that it had been man-' ufactured to suit the market, and sworn to by fellows unworthy. of belief,''whose characters are such as to prevent the possibility of- any sane person attaching impyrtance.to them, or of any decent. person, having ;a iknowledge 'of. their antecedents, from-holding intercourseI with them.

DWELLINGS FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 3 October 1868
DWELLINGS FOR TRE "IPEOPLE. (Fromu the Empireo. : , Tui Westminster. Review for July contains a.n article' on Co-operation Applied to ithe 'Dwellings of the People, in which, after a brief sketch of the association of masons in France, and of the improvements effected in t?he manufacturing town of Mulhouse on the south-western border of that country, the origin and very prosperous career of the Co-operative Building Company of Edin burgh is described. Though some circum stances of colonial life, especially the frequent changes in various employments, present obstacles to the developement of co operative enterprise here, we are continually approaching that more stable condition of society which in the mother country affords scope for the successful operation of such schemes. Aud at a less or greater distance of time all the colonies are sure to follow the mother country in the adoption of social reforms. We may not unreasonably hope that Sydney will never exhibit such a viola tion of...

THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 10 October 1868
THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE.:: Another example of the extreme inconvenience of the existing. Australian mail servico, has occurred this week. Theohomeward maila arrived on Monday and the outward, mail. is despatched to-day, so that little more than -three clear. days were available for replies to correspondence: "The inconvenience of so short a notice is not so great in London as in places more distant from ;the: port of departure; :but many considerable towns have, been unable to send their replies, especially those.in the more distant parts of Scotland and Ireland. It: is improbable that any change will be made for some time; but as the in convenience is making itself felt, the force of opinion will eventually'direot the' attention of the post-office authorities to the necessity of improvement.
THE NEW ATLANTIC CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 10 October 1868
. ' THE- NEW ATLANTIO OABLE. Of other continental news there is very little which need be adverted to here. The topic which interests the continent, most is the concession of a right to lay a new Atlantio cable from France to America. A companiy has been formed,.of which Mr. Lowe is the chairmani, and all the scientitic and nautical skill which was brought to bear upon our cables (one of which, 'that of 1866, has failed, but is expected to be set right) is to be employed for laying the French cable, with improvements suggested by experience. The Great Eastern is to be used for de positing the great cord,. and Sir Samuel Canning will have charge of the submersion tas before. The French government binds'itself to grant no similar concession for twenty years. - It 'is made to Baron D'Erlanger, of :Paris, and Mr. Julius Reuter, of telegraphic renown. The cable is to be laid from Brest to St. Pierre, and thence to the coast of the United States. We have no more interesting con tinental.n...
