A FEARFUL TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
A FEARFUL TALE. To theSouth-of Fort Cumberland, on the. Hampshire coast, rises i little knoll of "ground; fromn wvhich tho,iadja cent landscape assumes tlie most pictur. 'squie nppiearnc~. Oii one side " gloomy morass . blacklens tihe distant hoiizon; but to the righti;of.the fort, the gently swelling lhills 1that'stretch along the sea coast, nssume -fainter tints as they re cede fromr the view, till' atin-ust they ter ininate in the deep blue ocean ; beyond, at the very verge of distance stands the gibbet on which the unhappy convicts u;ere executed. It is situated on a bleak desolate imoor and 'as the mouldering remunraits of the victims of justice swing loosely in the gale, or drop piece-meal on the enarth, the sea-birds scream around the spot anxious for their prey, innd'presenting an image of unrelioved horror. When the day is stormy,. the dark waves dash against the hills, the sea-fog rolls down their sides, and the artificial knoll of earth is wet with the spray that foams ar...
ONE MOMENT OF SUSPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
ONE MOMENT OF SUSPENSE. sl L'oiivi.3roiigh am, in his notes on fc ::Paley;" observes that it is more fE than probable that the longest e: dream occupies in reality but an instant of time. However the events in it may seem to be pro- d longed, the entire dream is dreamt a from beginning to end during the c momentary act of waking. Some- 1&lt; •times the .subject matter of a -dream .from its commencement will lie found to have direct re ference to the act that wakes the b ,dreamer, and unless it be that v in. such cases the sleeper has the 'I power' of foreseeing the cause a that will awake him, and of plac ing before his imagination a series of h?isionary scenes all conducing t to:the final event, it would fo!- i low that the theory proji'uncied I 'b y our great philosopher must c be ithe only tenable one. Of the 1 class of dreams here referred to, the.following is a remarkable one r las 'illustrating the hypothesis in t question., t , I was one of a pai'ty on a .1 yachting e...

. LATER , ENGLISH NEWS. (rYJlerday's telegrama to Goutlbrn papers.) Tuesday afternoon., A tclegram from Cape Schanck to Mel bourne says that guns were heard at sea on Saturday night, supposed to be from some vessel in distress. Some laugh at the story. We have London news via Mauritius to the 1st December, being two days' later than that brought by the Suffolk.. - The crown law officers have declared that the seizure by the North American ship of war, of the Confederate commissioners, from on board the British mail steamer, is avliola tion of. tho law of nations.. This creates a strong opinion here (In Syd ney) that war must follow.. It further appears that satisfactionhas been demanded from the Federal government; but It Is considdred likely that this will be refused.

Local Intelligence. QUARTER SESSIONS. Before THOMAS CALLAGHAN, Esq., Chairman. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
ý.rn1 1 ntefliintrnr. :: QUARTER SESSIONS:. tBefore TixoAs CAL&AGNas, Esq., Chairman: This Court opened on Tresday morning, at ten a olok:. There ?as: only one case to be disposed of, namely, ., HORisE-STEALING. ,Thomas Smith was indicted for having on Sunday, the 12th Januauy last, at Cobma, stolen a horse, the property of his employer, James Kirwan. A second count charged the prisoner with having t received the same -knowing it to be ° stolen. The jury being impanelled, the pri soner, an old man, undefended, pleaded not guilty. The Crown Prosecutor, Mr. Temple ton, having first challenged one of the jury, opened the case by saying that although the prisoner stood indicted on the two counts, thb jury would plainly see that the case was rather one of steal ing than of receiving. The case was a very clear one, and' stood thus: The prosdcutor, Jas. Kirwan,'had a horse at his place on the Sunday in 'question, and on the following morning the horse and the prisoner, who had been...
General Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
. . .n. ,ng . t lgtým ? ae. OG?nEa FLOOD 1N CoosA. - On Friday evening last the immediate neighbourhood of our township was visited by'one of the most severe storms of thunder, lightning, hall, and rain which has occurred within the past three years. Cooma felt very little of the thunder or rain, but the fearful storm was distinctly visible surging along within a space of four miles, and the Cooma creeks, running through the township from the locality where. the storm' was proceeding, soon gave unmistakea ble indications of the perfect deluge which had occurred. It is impossible to form any conception of the extraordinary rapidity with which the flood came down, unless it were seen. In five minutes from its commencement to rise it was running twelve feet deep--from. an all but dried uip creek it was transformed into a madly rushing torrent, sweeping fences, 1 trees, casks, and cattle before it, and inunda ting half our township. When the storm first came on, some parties were at the...
BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. (From ou. or wn Correspondent.) I Am happy to record that everything hero has lately taken a start in • the right direction ; once more the diggings look busy and prosper ous-though, certainly, the greater proportion of the population is Chinese. I am often at a loss to know why our diggings 'are so little noticed or thought of. The auriferous ground is considerable; there is room for a multitude; and a large population might make good wages. We had a visit. last week from Constablo M'Intoshof Gundaroos, hose mission was to acquaint.: the celestials that their presence' would be required in Queanbeyan on-the; first of March next, in compliance with the Act for restricting Ctinese immigriitiorei"which comes into operation on that day. - The man in blue had great difficulty, in making them understand the object he had in view.

Epitome of News. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 February 1862
(From the Empire.) A boy of the name of M'Donald has been arrested on suspicion, as the murderer of a man named Paddy Murphy, at a station called Woorooma, in the Southern district. The murder was one of the most bloodthirsty and horrible crimes ever perpetrated, the spot where it took place having the appearance of a slaughter yard from the quantity of blood lost by the unfortunate man, who received upwards of thirty wounds-some of a most desperate character-in various paris of his body. It is said that the boy.M'Donald is Subject to attacks of mania, during one of which some time since he attempted self-des truction. The evidence against him is entirely of a circumtatintial character, and he treats the matter with great indifference. Mr. Cuthbert, formerly diocesan inspector of'schools, and recently a candidate for ordi nation by the Bishop of Sydney, has gained a verdict, with three hundred 1omnlds damage, against Dr. Hogg for linel, btsed on a letter sent' lijthe latter to tihe ...

COLONIAL SHADOWS.–6. &nbsp; BY OCULUS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "THE REPORTER" &nbsp; LONG before Samuel Johnson became the &nbsp; great orthoepist; at the time when he gazed &nbsp; about in hungry admiration of the great world of London, when a comfortable bed was a luxury he dreamed not of, and when he used &nbsp; to to be screened off from the public gaze in a little room in the office of the Gentleman's &nbsp; Magazine, so that the aristocratic customers of its editor, Edward Cave, might not be shocked &nbsp; by the sight of his ragged poverty,–he was a Reporter;–almost the first, as he was the greatest.

Freestone, J. W. Scrivenor, C. H. Walsh, and J. T. Gannon, and W. R. Tem- pleton, attorneys. Of the seventeen cases on the list, a largo number were settled without being brought into court.

[We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed under this head, nor are we in anywise answerable for &nbsp; the same.] TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In perusing your valuable journal for some time past I invariably find something in it from your "own correspondent" at Brooks' Creek, who appears not to confine his remarks to the diggings alone, but has generally some- thing to say about Gundaroo in general. But while his strictures and reports are for the greater part truthful, especially those referring to the Sabbath on Gundaroo, I feel called upon in vindication of my own character to correct an error into which he has inadvertently fallen. Speaking of the Gundaroo storekeepers selling on the Sabbath, more particularly to the hordes of Chinamen from Brooks' Creek, who make that their market day, I would beg to remind your own, that instead of using the word in the plural number (storekeepers) he should &nbsp; have used the singular noun and said...
