Tan quarter's .reveitie his lieei ipublished and it is satisfactory-to observe that there is: an. increase: of £6000 onl that of the corresponding quarter of 1867, and ithis after the ;abolition of package charges which in the 'September quarter -of last year produced £10,000.' Not~withstard ing;:it certainly behoves the:Assembly to sift well the:proposals of the Treasurer's budget, :and .consider carefully .whether the requirements of the colony demand a imuch larger revenue. than' that now: de;. rived.

AMERICAN SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868
AMIER[OAN SPORTS. (From the .Pall *'all Gazctte.) AMERIOAN sports and games differ greatly from:those of the parent country at the pre sent time-from difference of climate among other causes, and.partly because of French and German innovations. It is also possible that, as the dialect of New England is really, to some extent, the language that was spoken in Old England two hundred years ago, so some of the popular games in America may be, in reality, obsolete English games successfully preserved in that country. Thus, faro, which is still the favourite game at the Hon. Mr. MIorrissey's hell in Twenty fourth-street, New York, was fashionable in St. James's street in the last century. The American ladies, like those of the continent, do not ride much on horseback, do not take long walks, indulge in no vigorous exercise except dancing. .To this indolence many scientific Americans attribute their:pale faces and their angular.: forms. The "gymnasium has, therefore, been lately introduced...
A RUNWAY MATCH, OR THE FATHER'S CONTRIVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868
A RUNAWAY MATCH, OR THE FATHER'S CONTRIVANCE. Anour twenty years back there dwelt in a village in the West of England an uncom monly pretty girl, 'who had a very cross grained but wealthy old father. Minnie was Danforth's only child; and report said truly that she would be his sole legatee. The old man was a sturdy farmer, and was estimated to be worth fully ten thousand pounds. Her suitors were numerous; but her father was particular, and none suc ceeded in making themselves admired 'by either him or her. Minnie, however, had a true and secret lover. His name was Walker, or, as he was generally called by the old man, "Joe" Joe Walker; andhe was simply the bailiff employed by old Danforth, who had trusted Joe with, the management of the place for two or three years; he was a very excellent farmer and a good manager. He was young too-only twenty-three; ':and he actually had the audacity to fall in love with the beautiful Minnie Danforth, his employer's only daughter. A..nd what is mo...
THE ROTUNDA AT WOOLWICH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868
THE ROTUNDA "AT "WOOLWICH. (From Oha,nbera'a Jor,.nal.) HALF-an-hour from London Bridge-by the North Kent railway will enable a traveller to reach the dockyard station, from which, in fifteen minutes, Woolwich Common may. be attained on foot. On the right-hand side of the' pathway leading to the common, the traveller will observe a curious Chinese looking building, in shape like a Chinaman's hat. This, is the Rotunda, which may be visited every day, except Saturday, and except from-twelve noon to one p.m. each day. . The 'Rotunda was erected in St. James's Park in 1814 upon the occasion of the. visit of the allied'sovereigns to this coun try; but was: afterwards transferred to Woolwich, where it is now used as a museum for models of artillery, and for the weapons or curiosities of various countries. The Rotunda is thirty-nine yards in diameter, and covers an area of about ten thousand six hundred feet. Upon first entering the grounds outside the Rotunda, the visitor will see a colle...
THE TUBE-WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868
THE TUBE-WELL. AT the Singleton show of the Northern Agricultural Association lately the silver medal for the best sample of a tube-well, with diagrams descriptive of its working principle and capacity for pumping pur poses, was awarded to Mr. W. C. Clements, Mr. Keene being the other exhibitor. The Singleton Times remarks: The tube-well curiosities attracted great attention -exhibited by Messrs. Keene and Clements. The former gentleman has been for many years familiar with the working ot the tube-well both here and in Europe, and constructed one for our show. Mr. Clements has been for some time endeavouring to acquire possession of a tube-well, and within the last few days only had one consigned to his protection. The following description affixed by Mr. Clements to his instrument will give our readers who have not read the document a fair idea of the article that obtained the first prize: Tube-wells.--The tube-well is simply a series of iron pipes from one inch to three or four in...
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 October 1868
VICTORIA. (Fro, c the Melbourne Argu .) Wa mentioned in our issue of yesterday that there was a lack of authorities to consult respecting the geographical and present social condition of the South American cities which have suffered from the recent earthquakes. To eke out our information the Comte de Castlenau, consul-general for France, has kindly forwarded for our perusal a copy of his work, in five volumes, entitled "Expedition dan le s Parties Centrales do 1'Amerique du Sud, de Rio de Janeiro i Lima, et do Lima au Para; exdoutde par ordre du Gouvernement Frangais pendant le annues 1843 It 1847, sous la direction de Francis de Castel nau." As might be expected, from the well-known scientific attainments of the Count, the work is interesting enough, but does not exactly contain the desired information. His visit was paid over twenty years ago, and his statistics are still older, so that we are unable to gather from his descriptions the aspect and character of localities which have...
