VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 December 1868
VICTORIA. Iv the man George Foarn be not guilty of. the forgery charged against him, and not concerned in the disposition of the proceeds of that crime, he is the victim of a most extraordinary coincidence of circumstances. His position in life is not quite accu rately described by the term he himself uses; he is not an ordinary "labourer," but is an assistant in the assay and smelting department of the Bank of Victoria. On the 'occasion of this cheque being uttered he was still so employed; and it will therefore be a~matter of.surprise to most people that he should have so large a balance to his credit at his bankers' as £1150. Yet this proves to be the fact; and, more over, the bulk of that sum, if not the whole of it, was deposited on the-very day on which the forged cheque was cashed. At about eleven o'clock in the morning £1500 was paid out of the National Bank, being made up by eighteen £50-notes and £600 in sovereigns. At about three o'clock in the afternoon Fearn deposited a...

Hlow TO' K.EEP HOUSES. COOL INrlHOT WEATHxIR.-Mr. John Hatfield, .'Professor of Practical Chemistry to the Pharmaceu tical Society, contributes the - following seasonable directions to the Times:-In these hot days a cool apartment is a real luxury, a luxury to be had far oftener than most people suppose possible. The secret consists, not in letting in cool air, for naturally all do that whenever they have the chance; but in keeping out hot air. :".If the: air outside a room or house be cooler than the air inside, let it in by all means; but if it be hotter carefully keep it out., A staircase-window left open during the night will often cool the passages of a house, and the rooms too if their doors be not shut; but it must be closed at eight or nine o'clock in the morning, or if on the sunny side, at four or five o'clock, and the blinds drawn-down. -'The mistake people generally make is to throw open their -win dows at all hours of the day, no matter whether the atmosphere be cool or...

The Age. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 December 1868
It is much to be regretted that at the different Courts of Quarter Sessions we find so many persons of a tender age convicted of offences, and the law has necessarily to be enforced in order to furnish examples of the result of crime. These young criminals are consigned to jails where there is no classification, and the consequence is, that instead of being reformed in principle, on their release it is found that they commence again a career of crime which leads to fur- ther punishment. The establishment of reformatories in our large and populous towns would certainly obviate the evil of sending young crinminals to a place where associations beget in many instances a career of crime. It is unfortunate that crime is not in the wane, as we might hope for, the long list of the different calendars proving to the contrary, and that many are convicted on the first detected offence against the law. On being sent to a jail, these novices in crime mix with the more hardened criminals, and ar...

SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. LONDON, November 25. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 24 December 1868
SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. LonrDOn, November 25. At the Lord Mayor's banquet, Mr. Reverdy ,Johnson stated that the recent differences between England and America had been settled. Mr. Dis raeli corroborated him, and asserted the causes of anxiety for the peace of Europe existed only super ficially. England did not share in the apprehensions prevalent in other .countries; the Queen desired peace, and he thought Lord Stanley who was not" animated by aggressive feeling, should step between France and Prussia. Lord Stanley in a speech delivered at Lynn, said that the overgrown armaments of Europe were a cause of much uneasiness, and if peace was pre served France would be reconciled to the union of Germany under Prussia. He stated that troubles were brewing in the east, and Turkey was in danger. He was prepared. to reform the abuises of the Irish church, and secure to tenants the value of their im provements. Parliament was dissolved- on. November 11th. The nominations took place on thb 16th, w...
