ELECTIONS BY QUOTAS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 March 1862
'ELECTIONS: BY QUOTAS. - (From the Harbinger.) AFr~r the great organic changes which have taken place in our political system dnring-the last ten years, there remain the problem of forming an elective Up per House i which almost all our lead ing men agree in acknowledging to be necessary, thqugh it is probable that a perplexing diversity of opinion will be exhibited as to the details of the required measure. This demand for an Elective Council furnishes an opportunity for the introduction of the system of "Elec tion by Quotas" propounded some years ago by Mr. Thomas Hare, and recently advocated by Mr. John Stuart Mill, and other distinguished political writers. If this plan should be introduced here, it will be an experiment on which the eyes of politicians in Europe and America will be fixed, with great interest, as the first practical test of a scheme that has been approved by the most philosophi cal of statesmen, as an advance on all previous legislative organizations. And as it ...

TRANSPORT OF SALMON OVA TO AUSTRALIA.: (From the Field, Nov. 23rd ) Ouk readers will be pleased to r- hear that another trial to accli matise the salmon in Australia is shortly about to be made, and • that the preparations for the transit of 'the ova are in a very Iorrard state. The great, bug beari to the transport of ova to Austraha has always hitherto been the tropics. It has been found that a temperature of over' 55 degrees is fatal to the suc cess of the experiment..

Country News. GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 March 1862
GUNDAROO. &nbsp; From a Correspondent. Our Improvement Society has again com- menced. On Friday last a pretty large at- tendance of members mustered, when an essay on "The Human Mind" was read, and a few other subjects discussed. Three new members were proposed and admitted. Next Friday night the annual subscriptions are to be paid and a debate is to be entertained: subject,---" Is the present custom of smoking tobacco necessary or useful ?" There will probably be a lively and animated discussion on this subject as well as a large attendance, as it is an unusually interesting subject. You will see by what I have stated that our society is no useless candle under a bushel, but a beacon on a hill. A petition is now going the rounds of Gun- daroo and Collector for the purpose of having some desirable alterations in the mails. The old arrangements were much better than the present, as far as these two places are con- cerned. Whoever advised the Postmaster General to change the d...

Young Lundy was rather taken aback at the question, but answered bluntly, Why, sir, he was a snuff manufacturer. And pray, (continued, the polite querist):why didn't he make you a snuff manufacturer, too ? Lundyfoot, without answering the last interrogation, retorted as fol lows: And now, sir, what was your father ? Why, a gentleman 1 And why didn't he make you a gentleman too? askedLundy sharply. Lord "Verisoft" was completely nonplussed, and our hero escaped further " chaff " on the subject over after.
