GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 December 1861
GUNDAROO. 1rom a rCorrespondent. CRTKcET.-On Thursday next we are to have a visit from- onu'Ginindcrra neighbours; Boxing-day is to see the return match played between our cricketers and the Gininderraites. No doubt it will be a lively game. However 1 expect our visitors will have the best chance, for from what I can learn, they have been practising for the especial purpose of being prepared to give us a severe castigation, while our own cricketers have been very dilatory, of whom only a few are at home, and these do not come up to practice, so that we shall be anything but prepared, unless it is to get a good dressing. SALE.-Last Thursday we had a sale of household furniture at the residence of Mr. WV. II. Davis, who is about to depart for Sydney to reside there. His furniture which was very good; obtained exceedingly high prices. The great cry in Gundaroo at present is "No money;" but if I may judge from the quantity sold, and the prices obtained, I must say there must be money so...

VIEWED in all its brancbes, the lifeof a jockey durii g nine nionths out of. the twelve, flnow the people have taken to race in November, must be admitted to lbe a very bad one; for however the mental powers of those engiged in iAher callings are taxed, they have t conso lation a't least of knowing ,t no ui post is laid upon.the' gratification of their stomachs; andldovided they have means, they cad indulge themselves without fe/ of the consequences. Wherenajir the poor jockey, he is com pelled1,Ath the appetite of a Dondo, to assume the ascetism of a hermit. And yet, on the whole, the life of a popular jockey is not without its charms, for he is courtedf'by all ranks of society, from the peer of the renhi, who- fills his cigar case, dPWlJiftothe licensed victualler, who. sliaild he -hie ta er to ninisesi ,une, found in silk dresse Cesarewiches, Ches ter Cups, and Cainbridgeshires, and his -boys are never iii wants of godfathers.

QUEANBEYAN HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 December 1861
QUEANBEYAN HOSPITAL COM MITTEE. A meeting , of the committee t the above society was held on Monday last, in the Court House, J. J. Wright, Esq., in the chair. From a minute read by the secretary it appeared that the" usual quarterly meeting, -which should have been held early. in October last,. lapsed owing to the paucity of atten dance on the occasion, there being not a suf 1 cient number of the committee present to form aqquorum for the despatch of business. After a careful examination `of the hospital accounts, on the motion of Mr. W. O'Neill, seconded by Mr. D. Jordan, the total amount, £20 8s., for the quarter ending 30th Septem ber, 1861, was passed unanimously. A discussion then arose respecting an al leged irregularity in the admission of a patient named Mulligan, who it appears was a ser vant of Mr. Hall's, of Charnwood, and had been sent. by that gentleman to the Treasurer of the society, to take the necessary steps. for admission into the hospital.

SCRIPTURAL GEOLOGY. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 December 1861
SCRIPTURAL GEOLOGY. F_ (Continued). Ix'the visible creation we find signs and proofs of design,. bind such, wonderful adaptation to I the place which each is intended to occupy, itud such a chain of connection binding them all together as one whole, the produce of one universal mind, that universal assent must be given to Natural Theology, and ascribe the creation of all things to God. Resting firmly on this ground, as to refuse, in toto, the ad mission of such elements as are only the result of accident or chance we cannot but ascribe God alone the origin of all things, and to him alone ascribe these properties abd laws, both of matter and lif. which are implanted in each other, according to its kind, and keep eachin its own place, and enable it to discharge its appointed functions. Since the truths of Natural Theology, placed by Paley and others on grounds so distinct as.to be beyond reasonable doubt or cavil, the disbeliever in an intelligent Creator is only deserving of a place ...
EPITOME OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 December 1861
)EPITOME OF .NEWAS. (From our Contemporaries.) The Empress of the Seas was burnt to the water's edge at Melbourne Head' Her cargo of wool and tallow was destroyed, but 20,000 ounces of gold were saved. It is somewhat singular that within a short time thl'ee vessels have been destroyed by fire bearing the unfor tunate names of Sovereign of the Seas, Prince of the Seas, and Empress of Seas. A frightful accident occurred at sea on hoard the Oregon, from San Francisco, to two girls, the captain's daughters, who were drawing off rum in the store room, when the spirits took fire, and the cask exploded. Both lived some time, but expired in frightful torments.: From Saturday's Herald, it appears that an application having been made to the Supreme Court, a fresh inquest was ordered, the for mer verdict reversed, and Miss Loftus was buried by Dean Cowper, the Bishop of Sydney and Mrs. Barker being present . A sum of £210 is to be voted to the exten sion of the Clyde road, via Little Bombay to...

Letters to the Editor. - [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,--Referring to the police report in your issue of the 5th instant, I find my name embla- &nbsp; zoned and becoming as familiar as household words, for no other crime than being NON COMPOS &nbsp; MENTIS. Men from every country have their peculiar way of expressing and showing friendship, as for instance, in my father's country a man will "meet with a friend and for love knock him &nbsp; down," and you by exposing faults, with friendly motives I presume, knock down with your pen. Of the two methods the former appears the more tasteful, for this reason, having your friend before you, you can return any practical compliments, and consequently there can be no time lost. Whatever your motive may be, I know not, in thus showing up and exposing--for this particular &nbsp; charg...
