MINGLE, MINGLE, CELT AND SAXON. (DEDICATED TO OUR NEW SECTARIAN POLITICAL ASSOCIATIONS.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 17 October 1868

MINGLE, MINGLE, CELT AND SAXON. (DEDICATED TO OUR NEW SECTARIAN POLITICAL ASSOCIATIONS.) Mingle, mingle,.Celt and Saxon! Lay by your enmity ; Boldly, boldly lay your axe on The deadly upas-tree Whose dark shadow long hath blighted The loved isles of the west, And the fires of hate hath lighted   In many a British breast. Deep sunk in the slough of ages, Its roots like serpents twine; Whilst each leaf on its boughs umbrageous Is a memory malign Of days and deeds else vanished In the caverns of the Past: Oh, let them thence be banished And from your memories cast. Is it well to nurse the rancour Of ages long ago, Until to a fulsome canker Each time-seared wound doth grow? Surely love than hate is sweeter, More Christ-like and more pure ! Oh, then, why imbibe the bitter, When the sweet flows by your door? And now, ye partizans of Erin Your country's curse and bane! --- From your feuds and deeds agrarian, And strife of sects retrain: Intertwine your rival colours --- The Or...

The Age. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 17 October 1868

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th, 1868. Now that Parliament has again assembled we shall shortly see :what policy is to be followed by the MARTIN-DDOCKER adniijiis tration long-as they retain the honours and emioluments of office. For a long time past several successive Cabinets have declared for extensive retrenchment, but we fail to see in what regard that policy has been adopted materially to assist the resources of the exchequer. There is not a more difficult task devolving on an ad ministration than the judicious curtailing of the public expenditure. Unfortunately no one has as yet succeeded in this under taking in the colonial: goverinment. In such 'attempts orisuggestions as have been made, they have left untouched what most needed economical reform and interfered with aiid . crippled by parsimony that which neededliberal expenditure to irender it efficient: Ari'instance of' this kind is seen in the advocacy by some members of the Assembly. of great retrenchment in the department of-po...

Our information is yet scanty, both as to the particulars of the story told to Tawhiao and his counellors, and as to the temper in which it was received by them. The prevailing horror of the fight at Patea-far greater than the loss of the man who were shot dead at once-was that all the wounded who could not walk were left on the field ; and this, to anyone acquainted with these Fgatireanuis, involved a scene of unutterable horror. The. Maoris ire not as a'_ people given to torture their prisoners; their method Is to extinguish sensation and life at ones by a blow on the head.

TILE MAORI ICING DECLARES WAR. When his Maori Majesty heard of Titokowarn's recent success in the Patea district he dreamed a dream and saw visions.

His Maori Majesty has accordingly ad dressed a kind of edict to. every Hauhanu chief throughout the island, to rise in October, and make war upon the Europeans. We are told that the gov -ernment are in possession of one of those circulars, and no doubt will act upon their usual policy.

ECUADOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868

ECUADOR. The news from this republic is of a very general nature. The following towns ap pear to have suffered most: Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is nine thousand five hundred and thirty-four feet above the level of the sea, being situated in a ravine on the east side of the volcano of Pichindra. Its population is fifty thousand. Its streets, excepting four which meet in the central square, are narrow, uneven, badly paved, and dirty, and the houses, built mostly of sun-dried bricks, and thatched with leaves, are the reverse of imposing. It nevertheless contains a cathedral; churches, convents, colleges, a town-house, a court house, an orphan asylum, and a hospital. The manufactures are chiefly of cotton and woollen goods, lace, hosiery, and confec tionery. The trade in corn is very exten sive. Quito is an old city, having been taken by the Spaniards in 1534. It has suf fered much from earthquakes. San Miguel do Imbarra, the capital of the Imhabura province, is a well-built town, c...

CATTLE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868

OATTLE FAitSING. f-om tie Goulburn Herald.) MANY; months ago attention was drawn in these columns to the advisability of pre paring for an increased and more permanent demand for fat cattle, both for home con sumption and for exportation. It was pointed out that there would in all probability be great drafts upon the capabilities of the fattening stations in the interior, and that settlers in the neighbourhood of our principal towns would have a readier market than" formerly in consequence of the withdrawal of the competition of many of the larger squatters. From that time to this, notwith standing the favourable condition of the country in respect to feed, cattle have not ceased to command. a remunerative price; and at the present' moment 'there seems reason to believe that the prospects of the cattle-breeder and fattener are more en couraging than for a long time past. It is evident that the exportation of meat is assuming commercial importance. Several establishments in various p...

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. er . (From the Auatralasian,.) Ti?E ?IToCEN. GAnRDE.-Weeds: are. grow ing rampant, and. will require much.atten tion to keep them .under; however, by fre quent hoeings at the right time these can be kept down. The several varieties of peas and beans have grown amazingly during the past few weeks, and will require earth ing and support. Strong growing peas, unless well staked and supported from the ground, seldom produce anything but a bundle of haulm; and when they produce pods the seeds are flavourless. The past week has been most favourable for working soils of every description, and where atten tion has been paid to our former directions the principal crops will now be fit for thin ning and hoeing. Attention must be paid to this as soon as the crops are fit to handle, for at this season kitchen garden crops grow as on a hotbed. Plant out another batch of cauliflowers and cabbages according to the demand, and see that former plantations are thoro...

THE REPUBLIC OF PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868

THE REPUBLIo OF PERU. This was the scene of the chief disasters, which were worst at the seaboard. The Peruvian coast is throughout rugged and lofty. In the northern provinces there are some six miles of loose sandy desert be tween the highlands and the ocean, but in general the cliffs approach close to the shore, while in sixteen hundred miles there are not twelve secure harbours, including Callao, Pisco, Islay, and Iquique. The following are the localities mentioned : Callao, or Callao de Luna, is the seaport of Lima (the capital of Peru), seven miles off, and connected with it by a road lined with trees. It is situated on the north side of a projecting tongue of land, protected from the open sea by the barren island of San Lorenzo. There is a shoal extending four hundred yards from the beach, upon which a mole has been formed, and vessels can lie and discharge alongside. - Although the name of Callao is very ancient, this town dates back no further than 1746, when the original Ca...

THE LATE EARTHQUAKES IN SOUTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868

THE LATE EARTHQUAKES IN SOUTH AMERICA. (1l'om the Aletbourne Art?,.) Wnum- the late disastrous news from South America forms the chief topic of public thought and discussion it is somewhat cu rious to find how little is known of the various cities and towns mentioned in the terrible account that has reached us. The commercial relations between Australia and the principal ports of the various South American republics have of late years been increasing; but yet little is known of the localities to which so much attention is now directed. Our popular ignorance on this point is not singular. Even in the Panama paper from which we extracted the intelligence published yesterday, there are numerous indications that the scenes of the events described are unfamiliar, and turning to the various geographical authorities avail able in Melbourne it is difficult to obtain the desired information. We have, how ever, for the use of our readers compiled the following accounts of the cities and towns...
