A FUNDED DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 January 1869
-A FUNDED -DEBT. (ro, n the .Em pire.) Tux colonial treasurer, in the course of his financial statement, announced it to be his desire to consolidate the public liabilities and to create a local funded debt within the colony. Some of the advantages of this proposed plan are too obvious to need much explanation. It is the consolidated debt of the United Kingdom which has tended so much to the preservation of that safe con servatism which prevents progress and re form from being precipitated into revolution, and protects the foundations of existing in stitutions throughout the most exciting political agitation. Just at the time when the treasurer of this colony has made the announcement alluded to, we observe that public attention in South Australia is being irawn to the same subject, and the project of creating a fund for local investment is strongly advocated by the South Australian Register. "That there are means," says that journal, "quite ample to supply the government with all l...

THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. OUR LONDON LETTER. LONDON, 3rd December. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 January 1869
THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. OUR. LONDON LETTER. IFrorn the S. t. ITerald.) LoNDor, 3rd December. DOnr?o the past month one object has occu pied every mind-the general election. Let me without delay put before your readers the result. Two or three Scotch seats are not yet filled, it is true; but for all practical purposes the new House of Commons is complete. Of the 656 members already returned 384 are liberals and 272 conserva tives, thus giving the former a majority of 112. Though some sanguine prophets have Sbeen disappointed, Mr. Gladstone will com amand a majority larger by 47 than that of last session, and amply sufficient, one would think, to ensure success to his policy.: But so..one- knows what turn affairs will take. Some. say the ministry will "honourably -retire,", and so avoid a vote of no confidence; others that a new "Cave of Adullam" is beliiig formed among the liberals. We shall not,. however, be kept long in suspense. Parliament is summoned for next Thursday, the 10th ins...

AN AMERICAN DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 January 1869
AN AMERIOAN DUEL. FAnTILAnITY with danger breeds contemptof it, and it is this rule that finally makes the bravado. The history of our frontiers affords many instances of men who were for long years desperadoes, and who defied all the laws, human and divine, with seeming im punity; and yet there are examples where individuals raised in the .lap of luxury and refinement, and of polished education,. inex perienced in the use of deadly weapons, have been suddenly brought into contact with these outlaws, and conquered them on 'their own fields and in their own bloody and inhuman way. A remarkable instance of this is re membered where a descendant of' General Philip Schuyler, who some thirty years ago, while travelling in the south-west, was set upon by an inhuman fiend. The man's name was Gamble; he had committed innumerable murders, and defied arrest or punishment. He had beenrepeatedly warned by the con stituted authorities of his state, declared an outlaw, and a large reward offered ...
