Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
PAINFUL ACCIDENT.-An affliction, of a very &nbsp; painful nature, occurred to the Sydney mailman on Wednesday morning. The facts are these:- The mail for Wollongong was being brought down on horseback on Wednesday morning by a young man named A. Turnbull, Mr. Waterworth, the con- tractor, having the coach up with him in order to bring a party of gentlemen connected with the mines to Bulli. The mailman did not arrive at the usual hour, and, it being imagined that something was wrong, the police were communicated with, and mounted trooper Board was despatched. Meantime it appears the unfortunate driver had been found laying near the top of Rixon's-line. The horses were grazing near, and he was insensible. Dr. Hall was speedily in attendance, preceded by Mr. Smith and others of Bulli. Turnbull was removed into the township and his head shaved, bled, &c. At times he was sensible, and from what could be gathered "his head went swimming round and he fell off." All one side...
Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
DR. BEER -It is currently rumoured that Dr Beer, who left Braidwood some twelve or eighteen months ago has returned to the colony, and it is con- fidently stated that he will soon be again in the town. Whether to remain, or only on a casual visit,, we we are at present unable to state. THE STAFF OF LIFE.---We notice that the price &nbsp; of finast silk-dressed flour at Macleod's New Steam Flour Mill is reduced to £13 per ton, as may be seen by referring to our advertising columns. A CAUTION.--Another of those serious accidents, of which there.have been, many already recorded, of children inflicting injury on their playmates through the improper use of axes, occurred a few days ago at Molonglo, where a settler's child severed two fin- of his younger brother with an axe with which they were playing. When will parents learn the danger of allowing little ones to play with such dangerous tools? &nbsp; RELIGIOUS SERVICES. - The Rev A.D. Faunce, &nbsp; of Araluen, p...
Letters to the Editor. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. ~SIR,--On reading a letter addressed to the Depart ment of Lands, which appeared in your issue of the &nbsp; 11th instant, referring to the road to Braidwood via Molonglo, I was surprised to find so many falsehoods contained therein. In the first place, there are only four free selectors between Molonglo and Braidwood, and two on the verge of Molonglo Plain. There is but one shepherd's hut between Molong!o and Quean beyan. I beg to state also, for the information of the public, that no sum has been expended by "private individuals," upon that road. If any &nbsp; money is granted by the Government, it should be for the improvement of the r:oad to Braidwood via Bungendore; it would then be of service to the in habitants of Gundaroo, Lake George, and the whole of the Yass district. I am, Sir, y our's truly, A LOVER OF TRUTH. Mrs. Hoare his been a...

DU CHAILLU'S LATEST ABOUT THE GORILLA. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
:-? ? U CHAILLU'S LATEST A.BOUT ' THE GORILLA. ... . (Concluded from our last.) HE fired at a gorilla, thought he had woui ded 'it in the side, reloaded immediately, and just as 'he raised his gun, the gorilla dashed -itf out of his hands, the gun going off in _ the fall,. and then, in an instant, with a ter :rific roar, the animal gave him a tremendous blow with his immense open paw, frightfully lacerating the abdomen, and leaving the 'entrails protruding-the wonder was that he was not killed instantly.' Then the monster left him to his fate. We hunted up our companions and carried our poor feilow to the camp where all was excitement and .sorrow. This people at once declared that it was no true gorilla that had attacked him, but a man turned into gorilla. . I have met and killed several' male goril las, and they came to the attack in the way I have described. The superstitions of the natives are very great; and generally when we arrived in the villages with gorillas several of the....
THE NEWS BY THE AVOCA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
THE NEWS BY THE AYOOA. (From thA Empire.) T?lE news by the Avoca's mail, as tele graphed from Adelaide on Sunday night, comes down to the 10th of August, so that the readers of the Empire were placed in possession "of it in thirty days. As usual, the telegrams are somewhat vague and ambiguous, and to a certain extent conflict ing; but enough is clear and intelligible to give us a general estimate. Commencing with domestic affairs, whereof commercial matters form a very important part, we find that New South Wales securities of comtparatively short date-that is having from four to nine years to run--were quoted at 94 to 96, while those having from twenty one to twenty-nine years currency realised 89J to 901. This certainly exhibits no want of confidence in the stability of the colony, and augurs favourably of the fate of the great railway loan, if it should be placed in the market. Although one account says that the British funds had fallen, yet we still find them quoted as high as 9...

MAXIMILIAN'S EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
MAXIMILIAN' S EXECUTION. The following is the telegram of Escobedo to the minister of war, announcing the exe cution of Maximilian : San Luis Potosi, June 19, 1867. Citizen minister of war,-Oa the 14th instant, at eleven o'clock at night, the council of war con demned Maximilian of Hapsburg, Miguel Miramon, and Thomas M?ejia to suffer the extreme penalty of the law. The sentence having been confirmed at these head-quarters, it was ordered to be carried into effect on the 16th. The execution was suspended by order of the supreme government until to-day. It is now seven o'clock in the morning, at which time Maximilian has just been shot. Please communicate to the citizen president of the republic. ESCOBEDO. Immediately upon the receipt of the news, General Berrioziba sent official information of it to General Reynolds commanding the sub-district of the Rio Grande. The event is now being celebrated with great rejoicing, manifested by ringing of bells, music, and other demonstrations. T...
MAXIMILIAN AT QUERETARO. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
MAXIMILIAN AT QUERETARO. THE siege of Queretaro continued for sixty eight days after Maximilian, by a most wretched display of generalship, permitted himself to be cooped up in the city. An American correspondent, who accompanied him from the capital and was with him until the surrender, affords us an interesting inside view of the city during the protracted siege, and narrates some fresh details of the capitulation. Though the Emperor's forces were set down at twelve thousand, . his effective troops did not number more than six or seven thousand. Prince Salm-Salm, who served in the Federal Army of the Potomac, was his confidential friend and counsellor, and really his chief staff, though General Costille, a confirmed invalid, nomin ally held the position. Though Maximilian was commander-in-chief, Miramon had the management of military plans. About the middle of March, Marquez, up to 'that time the Emperor's chief of staff, was despatched to the capital for reinforcements, and until...
GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 18 September 1867
GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (r?onm the Australasian.) THE KITCHEN GARDEN.-NO time must be lost in forwarding all work requiring." attention now, especially in getting in the principal crops. Attend to younr crops as they advance. Keep the Dutch hoe frequently at work to cut down weeds, and pre vent the ground from cracking. Shallow hoeing is best amongst young crops at this seasons, as long as the ground is left rough on the surface; a smooth surface at this season only promotes the growth of weeds, which the showery weather we are having has greatly encouraged. Transplant cabbages and cauliflowers, and attend to earthing-up those pre viously planted out. Make another sowing of beet, also another small sowing of carrots and parsnips. French beans may be sown more largely on a piece of ground richly manured and well sheltered from cold winds. Follow up sowings of the dwarf varieties of peas, such as Beck's gem, wonderful, Dillistone's prolific, and advancer. Strong plants of c...
Weekly Commercial Report. "INDEPENDENT" OFFICE, Friday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 21 September 1867
" INDEPENDENT" OFFICE, Friday afternoon. FLOUR AND WHEAT MARKET.-The flour and wheat market is not in a healthy state at present, owing to a large consignment from Goulburn and Burrowa. We have been informed that a miler of the Tumut district is about to establish an agency tor the, disposal of his surplus stock. Settlers may make up their minds at one to either hold over till next season, or sell at current rates, viz., 4/9, being the extreme price given. In our opinion, there is no chance of higher rates before the new crop is available. We will not go so far as our contem porary to prophecy in a desponding tone as to the result ot the growing crops; we will leave that in the hands of the dispenser of all good. "

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 21 September 1867
.WEDqNE5DAY.--The Aesembly is not likely to give its assent to the proposed method of borrowing the gigantic sum of £3,000,000, and a very intimate friend of Mr Eagar's says " I understand from the Treasurer himself that the government will at once withdraw the proposition-and as regards the Land Bill the second reading of which is on the paper of the house for to day, " Mr. Martin, will consent to the sinking of the Bill rather than that the present government should be razed to the ground. The Railway Extension agitation is not at all quieted, and we do not yet know in what direction it is most likely to be pushed with the Martin ad ministration railway loan. Later in the evening I presume we shall be able to judge better. The pro _posed amendment in the ad valorem duties will make the shoe pinch with some of our importers, who at present, with an easy conscience, make fifty and seventy per cent reductions in their valuations. I understand the oath of the importer will be required...
