TUEsDAY, NOVEMBER 12. IN the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Wilson moved'the resolutions standing in his name. He observed that in fEngland'a large number of able men were. engaged in depently of one another in the construction of railroads and.locomotives, and were constantly competing in respect to. engineering skill and inventive genius, whereas, in this colony, the construction and carrying forward of railway works were in the hands of one individual. We ought to open our doors, therefore, a little wider, and avail ourselves of the talents of other parties. It had been objected that Mr.' Bell had not applied to the government, but that was a mistake. Mr. Bell had submitted his plans to the government, but had not, he ,thought, been treated with the consideration .hind respect that his engineering knowledge and capabilities deserved. After explaining the principles in which MIr. Bell's system dif fered from that at present in use, Mr. Wilson expressed a hope that the House would affor...

TERRIFIC THUNDERSTORM. DAMAGE TO THE CULVERTS AT THE BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 21 November 1861
TERRIFIC THUNDERSTORM. DAMAGE TO THE CULVERTS AT THE BRIDGE. ON Tuesday, a violent thunderstorm passed over Queanbeyan, accompanied with very heavy rain and hail, and a tempestuous wind. The weather for two or three days previous had been oppressively hot and sultry, so that the approach of a storm was generally ex pected. The sky, at a very early period &nbsp; of the day, gave indications of a coming storm, and at midday thunder was heard ; but the full fury of the elemen tal war was not experienced until about three o'clock in the afternoon, at which time the lightning was very vivid and the thunder awful. Clouds of dust, so dense that it was impossible to see more than a few yards before one, were raised high in the air, and carried along the streets; but the descent of rain in tor rents soon laid the dust, and in ten minutes afterwards, Monaro-street was &nbsp; one vast sheet of water, rolling in vo lumes along to the culverts constructed for its discharge into t...

Letters to the Editor. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed under this head, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In your issue of Thursday last appears a letter from your humble servant, to which was appended a footnote of your own, which was certainly quite uncalled-for, as you will see, when I tell you that the Editor of the 'Courier' never expressed a wish to me to have his correspondence forwarded by the direct mail from Gundaroo to Yass; neither was his letter superscribed to go by that mail, as you imagine. Yours truly, THE POSTMASTER, Gundaroo.
