SCRIPTURAL GEOLOGY. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 February 1862

"'-SCRTPTURAL GEOLOGY. ti tha (Contiiiered). IT was at that time when Dr. -Dalton made his experiments known, that in all comblua tions of two or more substances, it was of the utmost importance to find out what worei the best plropoi'tions of the' different ingredients; 'how-the aclds.could be employed with. most effect, or when they might,be entirely neutra lized ; what proportions of the metals gave brass or steel its best temper fori'the 'use of mani, and from 'what mixtuire of iigredients " we might most closely imitate the crystal in its clearness; and the colours of the gems and flowers. .It was also. known that in some combinations of art, union tooic place up to a certain extent without increasing the bulk of the larger substance by the addition of the ~inaller.; water, for. instance, will' receive a considerable quantity of salt without increits ing its bulk ; and copper in a state of fusion may have ten per cent. of tin incorpornhtel with it, yet the compound only occupy'...

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, FEB. 13th, 1862. THE CASE OF THE CORONERS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 February 1862

THURSDAY, '1PBB. 13th, 1862. THE CASE OF THE CORONERS THE general impression created by the . vote of the Assembly which. disallowed. the: country Coroners' salaries.was that the actvwas tanta mount to the abolition of the office; and many and loud were the com plaints that so time-honoured and ,usefuil an institution should be tlius rashly and injudiciously overthrown -at, any rate to all practical pur poses;' :while, the substitution of magisterial :inquiries, in cases" of suspicious or mysterious death, was regarded as scarcely any safeguard against the'many and fearful resiults that might be anticipated.- It was rationally objected that to render it compulsory upon gentlemen -in the Commission of the Peace to hold a magisterial inquiry wherever it might be deemed. necessary, was both arbi trary and unconstitutional. It was forcibly argued, that it was enough that these gentlemen should without fee or reward give a large amount of service at Courts of Petty 'Sessions, and in mani...

On the following morning he was forwarded towards Carcoar. We are informed that the escort consisted of five mounted men, and the chief-constable of Gundagai. Peisley also was mounted and lhandcuffed On reaching Marengo, it would appear that he was handed over to the solitary policeman at the temporary quarters.

PRESBYTERIAN UNION. A rLissa meeting of the subscribers to the proposed new. Presbyterian Church was held in the Court House on Saturday afternoon last.

Mr. Reid then moved:-" That this meet ing is of opinion that the Synods of Australia, Eastern Australia, .and New South Wales, should unite together upon a common scrip tural basis, and is strengthened in its opinion by the fact that these Synods subscribe the same standards, teach the same doctrine and adopt the same church, government, and discipline."

POLICE.--There was no business at the Court of Petty Sessions last Thursday, and the only case brought before the notice of the bench throughout the week, was a charge of absconding from hired service, preferred last Saturday, but the information was withdrawn. FREE SELECTION.--Tuesday was a busy day at the land agents' office; and with the exception of the first Tuesday since the Act came in force, more land was selected than on any other day of application. The following applications were entertained :--four lots res pectively 820, 160, 100, and 40 acres at One Tree Hilll; 50 acres at Butmaroo-crceck ; and 40 acres at McLaughlan-creek, Gundaroo ACCIDENT.-Mr. Peter M'Alister, of Mo longlo, met with a very severe accident on Monday.

THE PRINTER'S DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 February 1862

THE PRINTER'S DOLLARS. I \HVTERE are they? A dollar.here and a dollar there, scattered over r numerous small towns, all over f the country, miles and miles apart-how shall they- be ga 3 therecd together ? The type founder has his hundcaeds of - dollars against the printer; the I paper maker, the building owner. t the journeyman compositor, and s all assistants to carrying on his business, have their demands, - hardly ever so small as a single Sdollar. But the mites from here and there must be diligently ga i thered and patiently hoarded, or 3 the wherewith to discharge the t large bills will become bulky. t We imagine the printer will have to get .up an address to his widely scattered dollars some thing like the following: " Dollars, halves, quarters, dimes, and all manner of fractions into which you are divided, collect your selves and come home! Ye are wanted! Combinations of all sorts of men, that help the printer to become proprietor, gather in such force, and demand with such g...

THAT TWO POUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 February 1862

THAT TWO POUNDS. (From the Leisure Hour.) SITv was odd, very odd; roclkor it up this way and that way, or in whatevr way you might, the result was just the same -I had two pounds more than I could account for. I went over the whole quarter's receipts receipts again to see if something had been omitted, but a everything was quits right. " Ha! what's that? It looks like a scrtatching out; and yet it cannot be, for I never used a penknife." So I held the leaf up to the light, and scanned it closely, and then turned it over, scrutinised again. "It certainly does look like an erasure; but no, it is only a little roughness on the surfa-te of the paper." I was completely puzzled. It was quite possible fo.-r'ide to have too little ; but to have .-two pounds too much--I could notunildelrstand that at all. " Well," I .s?id to myself, " its better at any rate than having a couple of pounds too lit tie." Still the idea of there being a mistake somewhere made me feel ivery uncomfortable. I had.b...

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, FEB. 20th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 February 1862

THURSDAY, FEB. 20th, 1862. THn New Land Act has now been in operation long enough to test the desire of the people for landed pos sessions,; and according to the latest statistics we find that considerably over 100,000 acres have already been selected, representing ablout 1000 farms. These figures show a large augmentation to the alienated agri cultural lands of the colony-for these selections are almost all do. signed for agricultural purposes; but they bear only a small proportion to the extent of lands intended to be taken up, and which in reality will be taken up, under the new Act, within the next twelve months. The rage for free-selecting may abate to a certain extent after.a short time, but until the culture of land is dis covered to be no longer a profitable pursuit the arable lands of the colony will always be in brisk demand. There is one thing, however, that will militate very' seriously against the purchase of land under the New Act; and that is, the discouraging price o...
