GOULBURN. F. S. COHEN AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 January 1869
GGOULBURN. r. S. COHEN AND CO.'S REPORT. F Fat Cattle.-The present drought and want of both feed and water on most of the stations renders it very dilicult for graziers to find fat stock of any descrip tion)! t to send to market ; and cattle, it only half fat, must be taken by the trade, from the fact of being unable to purchase anything prime. We quote best bullocks, £6 to £7; medium to good £4 '15s to £5 6a. Store Cattle.-The demmand that axisted for store stock some few months back has to a very: great ex etat abated, the numerous bush fires consequent upon the late hot weather having burnt up most of the grass about this quarter. However, should we be avoured with a few days' steady rain, we have no doubt but that drafts of good well bred cattle could asily be placed atrumunerative prices. Quotations -All bullocks 60s to 65s; equal sexes 50s. Fat Sheep.-No sales to report, and nothing prime omning forward. We have buyers for 2000 or 38000 god sheep at quotations--best wethers, 6...

S ' oonial Q5traqts. INQUEST ON THE. FIRE AT ST MA'RY'S" -THE result of the inquiry iuto the causes of the conflagration at St Mary's has, so-far as it has yet gone, tended but little, to elucidate the subject. The evidence of. the boy Patrick Rourke suggests a theory as to the origin of the catastrophe; but even then we must take it for granted that if the sup position be correct, Rourke must have mis stated part of his evidence. He deposed that when he went to bed on the Monday night the only light burning was the sanctu ary lamp, and that before going to' bed he lit a light in his own bedroom, and after reading awhile, extiriguished it. But (and it -is remarkable that this only came out on his re-examination) he subsequently sta ted that, previous to his retiring to his room he had lit a lantern for some purpose in the choir; and it is clear that the light in this lantern must have been burning tor some time, for subsequently, . he says, he extin guished it; and he also tells us ...

Mr. Macleay called attention to a breach of privi lege by the publioation in the Horald newspaper of what purported to be an abstract of the proceedings before the select committee on the attempted assassi nation of the Prince.

On lobking over the fence the police saw several persons among the fruit trees, and arrested prisoner as he was coming out over the fence. Prisoner in reply to a question put to him said he had only been get- ting a few nectarines. He was brought to the lockup and searched, and a quantity of nec- tarines found on him.

The Age. THURSDAY, JANUARY 14th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 January 1869
THHURSDAY, JANUARY 14th, 1869. Two letters which have recently appeared in the columns of this journal on the legalised injustice of the Impounding Act have led us to give expression to views we have .long held on the general defec tiveness and oppressive character of that remarkable piece of colonial legislation. No act of. the local parliament has opera ted more injuriously to the interests of the yeomanry or tended more to litigation and the engendering of bitter feeling amongst those who ought to be at peace. The act is on these accounts a standing blot in our statute books, and calls im peratively'.for amendment or repeal and the introduction of a new system alto gether. Thel?rincipal evils of the present act are---1. That it places in the hands of the large landowners a means of cruel' op.. pression. of the poor. 2. It'pla.ces in the hands of small holders a power of con stant- annoyarice and -of displaying their vindictiveness. 3. It presents to the dis honestlydisposed a str...
