THE EMU. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 January 1862

THE EMIU. -o (Prom the Yeoman.) LIKE the .kangaroo, the dingo, the black duck, and a few other -Australian ani mals, emu' is found in all parts of this wide continent." Wherever there is food and water'it is to be found sound ing its drum in the early morning and dewy evening. In unoccupied parts of. the continent it likes to feed on the open plains aridbasaltic downs; where, how ever, the country is occupied with flocks and herds, the few tlhat survive the dawn of civilisation- court the shelter of the scrubs' and forests, seeking their food in retired glens and gullies,. but always giving a'preference to the lux uriant vegetation found. on old sheep camps. The Emu, like the camel, can drink a large quantity of water, and in mode 'rately cool weather can probably subsist for several days without a' fresh supply. Eveni in hot weather I have found it from fifteen to twenty miles distant from the nearest water. When it comes to drink, 'it seems to 'lave a natural .dread of enemies; ;i...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 January 1862

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In reply to your Gundaroo correspon-   dent's meddlesome and disrespectful remarks res- pecting Brooks' Creek diggings, contained in     your issue of the 20th ultimo, allow me space for a few words. As regards his impertinent re-   marks that the diggers are not able to pay their debts, nor even willing to do so, let them be ever so trifling, I should like to know what authority he is in matters pertaining to this place, seeing that he has only been once on the diggings since the erection of the puddling machines. For my part, I have no fear of contradiction when I say there are not too people on these diggings who are in his debt. The people here are just as willing to pay their debts as he is. It is true that it is sometimes low water with their ready cash; but your correspondent must recollect we have had a great many difficulties to contend with. If our prosperity has been such that your ...

These los were two which the men had lying close toge-. ther, and one above the- other on the side of the mountain, in the- Red woods, and they had all the arrange ments made for their removal on this fatal morning. -Nothing daun ted by this singular dream, they went 'at it, but examined the .position of the logs, and concluded that neither of them could roll so as to do any injury. About nine o'clock, having the "dogs" securely fastened to the upper log, and the team blitched on, Higgins mounted the lower log, and: his coinpanion started the cattle. The moment the, log, started, both commenced to roll, when poor Hig gins attempted to spring from the lower one .over the upper one,,but his own footing being so u...

But the passing was.not easy. The whole line must diraw close to one side, and in some casPs into the soft snow, and this the men for a long time refused to do. It was" a diffi cult job; involving risks to some, and the road was theirs as well as ours.
