FALSE TELEGRAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
FALSE TELEGRAM. I roforrod last - month to a telegram, pull. lihhed i London six~ iweksa go;,announcing the discovery; of a ,seamnof copper in the Yudanamutana mines, t' the- richest the world had ever scon-richer than the ]3urra Burra.": This kindled a fever of excitement, and the shares went up to £6. The victims now discover that they have been swindled, the last mail bringing no tidings to warrant such a representation. An investigation is demanded, that the concoctor of the telegram and his confederates may be suitably pun wished: The shares have fallen to 3k, and will no doubt go much lower.

The Age. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
SATURDAY, .AOYVEBER 7th, 1868. ANOTiER reconstruction of the Cabinet has led to a delay of sit weeks in the-ad ministration of the'affairs of -the colony, arid which, at the present period, seems veiy inopportune; and a still further de lay -will take place in the event of any of the newly fledged being rejected by their: constituencies -an event we need scarcely anticipate. As matters stand, thena we cannot reasonably expect that the-esti mates for the coming year-will be passed before OChistmas, nmuci:to the detriment of the public service. qhistircumstajice has before occurred,: and. a motion for three -months' supplies cutrried in lieu thereof.. It seems to us that -as these. dilliculties so-often occur at -or near tie end.of' a year; they -might in' fuittire -be got rid of liy voting the supplies, 'iiy,, frorn May to'Mhy in each year, and thus: abolish the objectionable and growing practice of voting a three months' supply to meet emergencies. Again, it is' just possible that t...
APPALLING ACCIDENT TO A MAIL TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
APPALLING ACCIDENT TO A MAIL TRAIN. (From an English paper.) IT. may be remembered that on August -25th,;-1861,' a frightful collision took place in the Clayton tunnel, by which twenty-three persons lost their lives, and one hundred and seventy-six were seriously injured. Since that day no railway accident in this country has been attended with such a loss of life as that which took place on the London and north-western line on Thursday afternoon, August 20th. The circumstances surround ing it mark this catastrophe as one of the most awful which has ever been recorded in Great Britain. The Irish limited mail, leav ing London at 7.15 a.m., passed Abergele (Pensarn station) in safety about one o'clock; a goods train had - passed half an hour before. Beyond' Llanddulas a portion of a goods 'train to Holyhead became detached and ran back'down the incline, meeting the mail-train, which was then proceeding at about thirty miles an hour. ' There is' a ,curve near at. hand,' and the driver ...

This important and responsible office is thus, at last; made a non-political one, as it ought to I be; and we have not the slightest doubt that the benefit of the change will soon be , made a apparent, in the administration, of public justice. The great experience and I legal skill of Sir William Manning must stamriphis appointment with the seal of public approbation, and beget it degree of confidence i which had not before existed.

Original Poetry. THE CHRISTIAN'S CHART AND BEACON [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
THE CHRISTIAN'S CHART AND BEACON O'ER a trackless waste of rolling waves Her way a lone barque cleaveth, While a fierce tornado round her raves And high the white foam heaveth : With spread chart in hand, see the captain stand, Tracing her track 'mong the sunken shoals Marked by the comb of the boiling foam That o'er the treach'rous sunk reef rolls. Like a huge sea-bird, poised on the crest Of a mighty wave, she rides; Or, swift as an arrow loosed from its rest, Adown the trough she glides; Still cleaving her way through the storm-lash'd spray Holdintg her course through the tempest's roar, Whither dense palm groves fringe the white-beach'd coves Of some far, far-off but wished-for shore. Sombre and ominous looms the rack Of the night-storm gathering dark, And the lightning's flash illumes the track Of the toiling storm-tossed barque, As with steady course she baffles the force Of the tempest in its angry might And steers for the shore through the surf's loud roar, Guided to port by...
SECOND DAY—MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 November 1868
SECOND DAY-MONDAY. The meeting was brought to a close on Monday, with a fair attendance of the public, and an excellent day's sport. The number of people on the course was considerably greater than it was on Saturday, and the racing was almostas good. For the Corinth ian Cup the field was reduced to two, Flirt and Comet, the former being the winner. The Maiden Plate was considered a nice little certainty for the Earl; but Kaizer upon this occasion proved too much for him, and the representative of the "yellow and black" had to be content with second place. Kaizer, by the way was ridden by Ramsay, who had recovered marvellously quick from the severe fall which he had on Saturday. The boy was loudly cheered as he returned to scale. For the Free Handicap Italian had been the reigning favourite at even money, until he was displaced yesterday by Karoola, about whom people took 5 to 4 freely. Grvey Moms, and even the Moor, found supporters; but Young Mormon was alnost friendless, and even...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 November 1868
VICTORIA. WE have had an opportunity of examining a new building material named made-stone by the inventor,. Mr. J. E. Butler, architect, Emerald-hill. The brick appears to combine within itself the elements of strength and durability, so much so as natural stone. It will probably prove a cheap and substantial sub stitute for stone or brick. According to the opinion of the inventor neither sound nor damp can penetrate it, and its strength increases with its age, as. it speedily attains a rook-like hardness.: It will also have the tadvantage of ehoapnes, ma the ot of build ing with it willbe fully forty per cent. cheaper than with brick. The increasing importance of the subject of the takeall, which is so largely devastating the crops in some parts of the country, has induced the council of the board of agriculture to offer a prize of £50 for the best practical treatise on the matter, devoted' specially to an inquiry into the causes of the disease and its most practical remedy.
