KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 October 1860

K IAND R A. T?E season has now arrived wherein we may reasonably expect that this field will be visited by a sufficiently numerous and ex perienced number of gold-seekers, to properly develop its hidden riches, a process not to be completed in one, but during a many sue cessive seasons, so widely spread, is the auriferous deposit. For the fact.that gold has been and is now being, discovered in localities so far distant, and at every poinit of the compass, conclusively demonstrate the fact that this has to become an almost indefinitely extensive field for the research of the digger and the miner. It is certainly a. strange region to all new ar rivals from the lowlands, being mountainous, stormy, and in so great a degree severed from the rest of the colonial settlements. But " use is second nature," and presently a large poji. lation will become inured to the climate and content here to remain. With the extension of the diggings discomforts will decrease, society will assume a settled...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 October 1860

GOULBURN. (From our own Correspondent) Spring has really come at last, all nature is dressed in her most lovely garb, no season seems so beautiful and cheering: it brings buoyancy to the spirits and freshness to the existence. It appears as if nature had thrown off her ill humour, and gone to the extreme in making everything and everybody joyous. But what is the use of my telling you what everybody knows and feels at this season; and yet it seems to remind one that when we have done with storms and tempests in this world there is an eternal spring of unfading pleasure prepared for those who fight manfully the battle of life, influenced by the. principles of truth and love. This life is a mixture of joys and sorrows; many here are suffering from influenza, which has again visited us, but not in so severe a form as on the last occasion. My letter is quite in a moralizing tone, I had intended it to be quite a business one, but business is asleep, .hesitancy seems the order of the day i...

IS FRANCE SINCERE IN HER DESIRE FOR PEACE? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 October 1860

IS' FRANCE SINCERE IN HER DESIRE FQR PEACE ? (FROMxl 'nE THNES.) There is notling more unreasonable than alarm. / No assurances can per suadeit that appearances are not to be trustel, and that things will not be as they have been.' So there remains no alternative but to take it at its word. The Moniteur has been authorised to rebuke the nervous tremours of all the neigh bours of France, England among them. they are an insult to France,'and a libel upon her intentions. France .has no other wish thanrto be at peace?,with all ier neighbours, and to develop her own resources. Sihe hates complications, is sick of aggrandisement, and just now is thinking of 'somlething, very different. She has proveda her devotion to peace, and her respect f;or right, by substitu ting a strong and natural barrier for a weak and artificial frontier between her self and Piedmont. 'Yet this very act, so significant of the best intentions, has been made the pretence for" malevolent suppositions and accusation...

"' I never yield to his imperious temper i; I never indulge him in anything; "I think about him and care about him at all times, but see no good results." While' Mrs. B. was speaking, a bright, active boy, eight years of' age, came dashing into the room; and without heeding anyone, commenced .beating with two large sticks against one of the window-sills, 'and making a deafening noise. "Incorrigible boy !" exclaimed his mother, going quickly up to him, and jerking the '.sticksoiult of his hand "'can I not teach you either mariners or decency?

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20th, 1860. HORSE-RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 October 1860

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20th, 1860. HORSE-RACING. PERHAPS no sport has ever held such continued and almost undivided favour in the eyes of the British nation as that of horse-racing. Many may be the ar- guments against the practice, but as yet the popular verdict has been most deci- dedly in favour of its adoption; and this famous national pastime seems to find an abiding place in every colony and in every clime where a few of the English race are to be found together. To those who have taken an interest in the events of the present day, it may not be uninteresting to add, that the first Anglo-French alliance is said to have been made up of a compound of love- making and horse-racing. HUGH CAPET, the first of the third race of monarchs, wooed the beautiful EDELSWITHA by making to her half-reluctant brother, ATHELSTAN a present of two- running   horses, richly caparisoned with light saddles, elegant bridles, and bits of gold. Thus early could the French king dis- cover the nat...
