VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 November 1868
VICTORIA. /From tie Mtlbourne AOus.) A CORRESPONDEtNT asks us-now that snakes and snake-bites are once more in full newspaper season whether sulpburous acid taken internally has ever been tried as a remedy in cases of snake-poisoning. We are unable to answer the question. The reason given for asking it is, that a kangaroo-dog, the pro perty of the writer, was bitten by a snake in the cheek, which swelled, while the dog was seized with vomiting and showed signs of paralysis, and the eyes hecame glazed. In this state, a teaspoonful of sulphurous acid, two wine-glasses of brandy, and one of castor-oil, mixed, were given to the animal. For three days it was in a very distressing state, and unable to move its limbs. It then began to recover, and now hunts with the rest of the pack as usual. A aschool-house for the use of the aboriginal chil-' drenat the Rama Yuk mission station is now being built by subscription in the neighbourhood.

LECTURE ON LIFE ASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 November 1868
LECTURE ON LIFE ASSURANCUE. (From the Goutburn Herald.) ON Monday evening Mr. B. Short, the Sydney agent of the Australian Mutual Provident Society, delivered a lecture in the hall of the Goulburn Mechanics' Institute on the subject of Life Assur ance. Admission was free. The chuir was taken by the Rev. William Sowerby. The hall was well filled, there being probably not less than four hun dred persons present. The Chairman, in introducing the lecturer, men tioned that his own life had been assured for the last twenty-two years; he had paid in premiums within £200 of the amount of his policy; but notwith standing he was thorouchly satisfied that he could not have done better. Some years ago he had him self delivered a lecture on Life Assurance, which was the first of the kind in Goulhburn, and since then he had had the pleasure of listening to another delivered in that hell by a young man a native of the town. The Lecturer then came forward, and after express ing his pleasure at seei...

SABOLISHMENT. OF NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. TEN OUINEL'A PRIZE ESSAY. Let it be impressed upon your minds-let it be in stilled into your ohildren, that the liberty of the press is the palladium of all the civil, political, and religious rights of an Englishman.-Junius. To tieo Editor of theo Tortland Guardian. Smnt,-Ten guineas has been placed in my hands to be given either in cash, or its value in any other form, to the author of the best essay calculated to prove that the tax charged =for the transmission of newspapers should be abolished. Competitors can adduce any arguments they may think proper. Whether it is a tax onithe promulgation of knowledge, or a premium to ignorance and vice, whether it tends to the disbandment of printers, or encourages an " enlargement of gaols; whether it harmonizes to encourage the rpulpit, and neutralize their efforts by taxing the press; whether it is absurd to send lecturers to Great Britain to encourage "immigration, and lay an embargo on the fourth est...

TuInD DAY-F RDAY, .NovEMaEn. 20. This was the great day of the meeting, every event on the card holding out speoial attractions of either a novel or sensational abcharacter.. In .a hurdle race there is always a spice of danger and a chance of somebody's neck being broken, and people are. there fore anxious to throng to seeo one. The Ten-mile Race we were confidently told would result in the. cruel punishment and the possible death-of some of the horses; it was something new ini the, nnales of racing, and weas sure'to draw.a crowd. Early in-the morning the rain descended in torrents, end it was feared .that the day would be a very unpropitious one; but by eleven o'clock the cloudes-cleared off, and during the remainder of the~day the weather was delightful. The Ten-mile.Rcee, in which so much of publiainterest- has been centered, was very calosely contested, and spite of all that has-been andmaybe I said to the contrary, involved no oexhibition of cruelty I and brutality.

WAGrA WAGGA ANNUAL RACES. (Abridged j;'oni the Exprese.) Tsrs-meeting, wbich for some months past hnsa bheen looked forward to by the sportsmen of the distriot with feelings of far more than ordinary interest, commenced on Wednesday last. The early part of the morning was fine, but rather cool, and nas the day wore on therain commenced falling in rather smart showers, and just before the race for the Town Plate came down very heavily indeed. The arrangements forthe races were excellent in themselves, and were most efficiently carried out by the members of the club, and we do not think that, putting Reindwiok out of the question, they could have been surpassed upon any other course in the colony.

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 November 1868
GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (.,on, thse Australaaian,) THE KrromwN GARDENr.-Since we penned our last directions rain has fallen in consider able quantity, and enabled the gardener to proceed with work in this department which otherwise must have been left undone for the'remainder of the season. Where crops of early potatoes have been taken up, and the ground thoroughly dug, seeds of car rots, turnips, and beet may yet be sown with full confidence of success. Good breadths of cabbages and brocoli may still be planted out, also leeks and celery in trenches. Where yams and sweet potatoes have not already been planted, let no time be lost in getting them in now that the soil is full of moisture and heat. Attention should be paid to earthing up all crops re quiring such whilst the soil is moist, and see that late crops of potatoes sufficiently ad vanced are attended to at once. Make further sowingse of peas and runner-beans for succession, also a few more seeds of let tuce and end...

NEW BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 December 1868
NEW BISHOPS. It is reported that the bishopric of New Zealand will be conferred upon the' Rev. James Leslie Randall, reotor of Newbury, Berke. Mr. Randall is the son of the Arch deacon of Berkshire; he was* educated at the New College, Oxford, of which he is a fellow. . The income of the new bishop is at present uncertain, owing to the lapse of the parliamentary grant, and the diversion of the greater portion of the sum allowed by the Church Missionary Society. Bishop Selwyn is anxious to provide £12,000 for the endowment of the see, towards which subscriptions, amounting to about £3000, have been received. Appeals for help are still before the English public. The Rev. J. F. Turner, some time since appointed to the bishopric of Grafton and Armidale, will shortly be consecrated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, at the same time as the Very Rev. H. A. Douglas, Dean of Capetown, who has been elevated to the bishopric of Bombay. Printed and published by Jbohn Gale, sole proprietor, at hi...
SIR JOHN YOUNG'S APPOINTMENT TO CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 December 1868
SIR JOUN YOUNG'S APPOTNTHENT TO CANADA. The appointment of Sir John Young as Governor-General of Canada, vice Lord Monck, has elicited expressions of appro bation on all sides. The Times, in making the announcement, remarks:-" Sir John is a liberal in politics, and his selection by the Duke of Buckingham for the important post so far indicates a desire on the part of the government to exercise their patronage irre epective of party considerations." " It would have been diffoult," says the Express, " to have found a new governor for Canada to whom the word 'safe' would more em phatically apply. The appointment is in every way a direct antithesis to the ridion loue attempt to foist Lord Mayo upon India. Sir John Young is a liberal of the earnest, thoughtful type, and, like Mr. Gladstone, commenced publio life as a conservative, afterwards holding a prominent place in the Peelite section of the House."
THE EARTHQUAKE IN PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 December 1868
THE EARTHQUAKE IN PERU. Intelligence of the great earthquake which has devastated Peru will probably have reached you from Panama. A relief fund has been opened in this country, at the national bank and its various branches, and the amounts subscribed will be forwarded by each mail. Among the correspondence which the American papers have received there is an extraordinary statement made, apparently on the authority of General Kilpatrick, United States minister to Chili. It is asserted that on the south aide of the ruined city of Arica, at the moment the earthquake produced a great gulf, about five hundred mummies were suddenly exposed to view. "They stand,' says the narrator, who writes from Lima on the 28th August, "in long lines facing the sea, every one of the skeletons in perfect preservation, the hands doubled up and supporting the chin, the knees drawn up, and the feet sup porting the fleshless body." The spot upon which the dead were thus suddenly brought to light was formerl...
APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 December 1868
APPOINTMENTS. Professor Mansel, the well-known author of the Limits of Religious Thought, over which many a metaphysical battle has been fought, is appointed Dr. Milman's succeseor. The bishopric of Petereburgh, left vacant hy the death of Dr. 3eune, is to be filled by Dr. Magee, the eloquent dean of Cork. The last achievement of Dr. Magee has been a sermon in defence of the Irish Church, preached before the church con gress, which met this year in Dublin. But he had won "' golden opinions from all sorts of men" by a sermon preached at Norwich,. in the presence of the most distinguished members of the British Association, on the relations of theology and science. While on the subject of appointments, let me here mention that the selection of Colonel Wilson Patten as the successor of Lord Mayo in the office of chief secretary for Ireland, has given universal satisfaction.
RECENT DEATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 December 1868
RECENT DEATHS. The Emperor Napoleon is losing one by one his old comrades and intimate associates. Count Walowaki is the last whose death hat' been reported. He died after a moment's illness, having fallen in a fit of apoplexy on the floor of his hotel at Strashurg. A public funeral was accorded to him by the Emperor, and the last rites were performed in the church of the Madeleine, at Paris, in the presence of a brilliant assemblage. The English church has sustained another los' in the death of Dr. Milman, the learned Dean of St. Paul's, some of whose shorter poems, perhaps, have made his name more familiar the world over than those great historical works on which his fame will permanently rest.
