Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 10 October 1868
TO THE EDITOR. In what appears to be a leading article in your last issue, with reference to the deci- sions of the Judges in the cases Chisholm v. Macauley and Mate v. Nugent, so extra- ordinary opinions are expressed that I can not but think that a wolf in sheep's clothing has taken advantage of a little nodding on your part, Mr. Editor, to palm off these opinions on the public as your own. If effect had not been given to the free selectors to use their right as purchasers to impound off that land and the adjoining land, the grazing right of which accrues to them by means of that purchase, then free selection would have been utterly worthless, -in fact, " a mockery, a. delusion, and a &nbsp; snare." In the article in question it is stated that a free selector ought not to have any privileges appertaining to his purchase until he has paid off all incumberances.The preposterousness of such a maxim must be self evident; for on the same principle no person purchasing from anot...

YEOMAN MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 10 October 1868
YEOMAN MIISOELLANY. (7'From theo A.stralasian.) Sonny i? SOLD m.Is FAnir.--Tio doctor says he "never knew a man to sell his farm who did not regret it." This is perhaps stating it a little two strong,; but being one of the oldest pastors in Western New York, he has had good opportunities for observa tion. I think men engaged in other pur suits, who buy farms expecting to find nothing but pleasure and profit in agricul ture, are generally very glad of an oppor tunity to dispose of them. Such men selIom -regret selling. But with a farmer the case is different. HIo either sells because he thinks he can buy a better or cheaper farm, or because he is tired of farming, and proposes to'live in: the city. In the latter case he is almost certain to wish himself back again:odn the. farm. I heard of such a case the dther day.- A farmer wa.sofferod last spring.what lie thought` a-high price forihTisfairm; and accepted the offer, thinking he could liveo comfortably in the : city. on -the-'intere...
FOLIAGE PLANTS. PALMS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 10 October 1868
FOLIAGE PLANTS. (From the Australasian.) PALMS. There are few places in Europe where so good an idea can be formed of the luxuri- ance and variety of tropical vegetation as in the noble palm house of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Standing int he gallery nearly sixty feet from the ground we look down upon bananas, spice plants, and hun- dreds of the most characteristic trees of hot countries. Here is always to be found some &nbsp; plant of peculiar interest in flower or fruit. A few years ago a member of the cocoanut genus blossomed for the first time in Europe. This gigantic and yet graceful tree, the cocos plumosa, produced an enormous mass of pale primrose-coloured flower spikes, which for some days were as beautiful as a plume of feathers. The flowers were suc- ceeded by many fruits, which in a few months came to maturity. The following year the wine palm, caryota urens, produced for the first time in Europe its perfect inflor- escence. This glorious tree had previously...

THE CIRCLE ROUND THE MOON. In the dusk of the evening when the twilight is dying, And the breeze 'mong the grey-gums in soft whispers is sighing And the blue dome of heaven with the star-host is strewn, &nbsp; Drooping low in the dim west gleams the young crescent moon. No cloud dims her lustre—stains the star-spangled rim Of the horison clipping the western wilds dim, As down tow'rds the piney-peaks of the ranges afar She sinketh while riseth the bright evening star. From, the door of his cottage in a forest-fringed nook Hemm'd round by green cornfields and a mean- dring brook. The bluff husbandman gazeth again and again Scanning her crescent for omens of rain: For his corn crops are thirsting for the early spring showers, &nbsp; &nbsp; And round his bush homestead is a dearth of spring flowers ; &nbsp; And lhis cattle are pining on the drought-withered hills For the luscious young herbage and the purling of rills. And anon he sees vapour wreaths o'e...
EARTHQUAKE IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 17 October 1868
EARTIIQUAKE IN CANADA. A correspondent of the Montreal Gazotte writes from Lachine as follows: Tuesday evening, July 28, 1868.-One of the most severe shocks of earthquake that has over taken place in this section of Canada, was experienced here this morning at a quarter to ten o'clock. It com menced with a loud noise, as though several heavily laden waggons wore being driven over the road at railway speed, and before one had time to imagine the cause of the unusual noise, two loud explosions, similar to those of a powder magazine, took place. People fled from their houses panic stricken, and the scholihrs and teachers of the academy rushed into the street, dreading that the building was going 'to tumble down upon them. Dishes rattled, windows shook, and houses rocked to their very foundation. The shock lasted for about half a minute. We have not heard of any serious results.
