THE CHILDREN'S NEST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
TIE' CRILDR N'S SEST. Soma time ago, in; ase'thlimird town il England six ittle childrein were playing inu'a boat9; The: boat not being secured, it heii' washed from the beakch and drifted away to sea before the children were missed. Terrible was the agony of their mo thers when they knew it. As quickly as possible all who were accustomed to the water- went off in search of the missing boat and the imperilled children. And the entire commu nity were on the look out until far in the night. . Daylight returned and still there were no tidings; the day wore away, and as the night came on, hop' began to die, and mena feared that the helpless children were either drifting to a returnless distance on the wide ocean, or buried in its unfathomable depths. Early the next morning' a Ply month fisherman discovered some thing floating in the distance; he bore down to it, and discovered it to be. a boat, and in the bottom six children huddled together like a nest of birds and fast asleep.

IMPORTANT FROM THE LACHLAN 30,000 OUNCES WAITING FOR THE ESCORT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
IMPORTANT FROM THE LACHLAN 80,000 OUNCES WAITING FOR THE ESCORT. A TELEGRAM has been received by the Government which throws everything which has hitherto been said or written as to the richness of the LEchlan dig gings completely into the shade. The news is oficial-by telegram-from the Comnissioner at Forbes, and may, there fore, we imagine, be fully relied on. It is to the effect that 17,000 ounces had been placed in the hands of the Commis sioner to be sent to Sydney by escort; that upwards of 5,000 ounces had been lodged with or purchased by the banks, and that about 8,000 ounces additional was known to be still in, the possession of the diggers, who were awaiting an opportunity of sending-it. down ; so that beyond question, the Co nmissioiner states there were at least80,000ounces waiting for an escort. The present escort from the Western interior is only equal to bringing down 10,000 ounces weekly; and considering the rapidly increasing amount of gold which is being raised in ...

BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. (From our own Correspondent.) Oun diggings are turning out better than ever I begin to think they will make line winter diggings for any industrious man. The popu lation is still on the increase; another batch of about forty Chinese has lately arrived. those people are certainly doing well; and so, indeed, is every body else. I,' for one, intend to winter here. Our Chinamen visited your Police office a few days ago for their certilicates; but their boss, Jo Sang Qua, had some difierence with his countryman, and refused to accompany them, although upon the whole he seems very popular with his tribe. The boss, to take him by his appearance, lives upon something bet ter than rice. The much talked of Improvement Clads at this place is to give way to a Temperance So ciety. Steps have been taken to establish the latter. We intend not to conline it to the dig gings, but extend its benefits to all Gundaroo. We are on, the look-out for a secretary to commence operatio...

-THE: PRINCE OF WALES AND -HIS FATHER'S MEMORY. (From the Atheenweum) sAta,special meeting of the committee- ap-r pointed.to erect a memorial-of the Great Ec hillition`of 1851 `Held oe elte 2nida comma nicatione wasaread from the Prince of "Walee. This communication is,, we beheve, the first public letterwritten by his Royal Highness. Our readers are aware that the first sug.es tine of a memorial of the: Great:.Exhibitimn of 1851 was closely coupled with the name ofi the departed Prince. Most of the money for, it was subscribed under. the~impression that the memorial would comprise a statue of the founder of the Great Exhibition., That idea was abandoned in deference to the Prince. " Men," he said, " should- not have statues raised to them while they are living." . A statue of the Queen was consequently substi tuted; and the memorial has been brought by Mr. Durham to the verge of completeness on that understanding, and the principil figures are at this moment being cast ia bronze at...

THE WRETCHEDNESS OF NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
TIHE WRETCHEDNESS OF NEW YORK. The papers of all large cities are filled with. "appeals".from the friends of variou seleemosynary and benevolent so cieties and institutions for aid, in which the sufferings of orphans, widows, and children are set out in the most touch ing terms. Washington, is filled with misery; nor have, I ever been in any cities in the world in which' the Irish and other poor populations appear to live in more squalor, or to endure greater privations than, in the vile alleys of .New York itself, Pittsburg, Balti more, New Orleans, and the other large towns of the Union. Food is cheap enough, no doubt, but clothes are dear; rents are high, and the accommodation inconceivably bad-miserable sheds and. wooden houses, with glassless or plank and paper filled window, admitting cold and wind and rain. No delusion can be greater than to suppose the poor emi grant at-once attains a greater degree of physical comforts in the States than lie. has in his own country; it, is ...

DIMINTSHED GLORY OF WILKES. An American correspondent of a daily paper says:-"As for poor Wilkes, did any of your readers ever see a welted peacock after being out in the rain for a felT hours. Wilkes had a reception at the City Hall only a few days ago. To morrow, if he was to come here, he would be avoided as if he had just come from ,the smallpox hospital.

JOBBERY AND ROBBERY IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
JOBBERY .AND ROBBERY IN AI\LERICA.. The 'New York Tribune'says :-"The mntion is in the depths of agony and peril. To the eye of little faith, her race seems almost run-her dissolution inevitable-her glory a, reminiscence her power a' ruin. Brave -men grasp their muskets and- rush to the field of danger and of duty; mean men sneak after them, intent on-making money by fair means or foul. . Horses must be had in a hurry; the jobber is eager to aid his country by. furnishing them, and makes the urgency of the demand serve him in palming off venerable and indif ferent crow-bait for mettled chargers at 100 dollars to 150 dollars each ! Bacon must he had at once for the soldiers; so he bribes a commissary, and palms off a thousand tons of what was once the article required, but now crawls with vermin and reveals to the most heedless nose the corruption whereby it was foisted upoa a swindled people.

INSTINCT OF THE DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
INSTINCT'OF TIlE DOG. AMONG the Grampiain mountains there are glens chiefly inhabited by slieph rds, and the pastures over which their flucks range extend in every direction for many miles. . It is the daily business of the shepherd to visit the different ex treionies of the pastures, and turn back I any of the flock that may be straying to those of his neighbours:' It is it common practice with the IHiglhliuders to accustomi even their very -young chil dren to the tigotirs of the climate; and on one occasion a shepherd took with him aui infant of about three years old. To have' a niore extensive view he.ns cended a summit at soine distance, and as this was too fatiguing for the child. he left him at the foot of 'the mountain, clihrging him not to stir until his return. Scarcely, however, had lie reached the top, when one of the mists which fre quently tall on these mountains, came suddenly, nod, in a few mninutes, itlmist chiangeri diiy into 'night.

Epitome of News. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
( o r. uContemnperh&a4 THE DECEMBER MAILS AND THE BoMBAY STEAMER.-.We learn by telegram, says the Empire, that the steamer Bombay left Gallo with the Australian mails on the 21st January; and however desirable it may be not to tinti cipate misfortune, it would be folly to doubt that some misfortune has befallen her. One hope, however, that can now be reasonably indulged in is, that having been disabled in her machinery, she has attempted to make some port to refit, or had run for shelter to some part of the western coast of Australia. The idea that the steamer must have met with the typhoon, which lately visited the latitude of the Mauritius is an erroneous one, as the hurricane referred to ended on the. 8th Ja.i., and the Bombay did not leave Galls till the 21st, so that if she met with a typhoon it must have been subsequent to that in which the Atieth Rahamon was dismasted, and which was probably the one experienced by the barque Jane, from Manilla, which arrived lere on t...
GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 22 March 1862
GUNDAROO. (From our own correspondent.) EVERYTHING here begins to put on a wintry appearance. We have had a visit from Professor Bennett Clay, the mysterlarchist, who performed at the Travellers' Home on Monday and Tuesday evenings; but the people of these parts have no taste for sleight of hand tricks, judging by the meagre attendance on each occasion. The music on the first evening was certainly not first-rate. General dissatisfaction prevails here at the change in the mail days. A numerously signed petition has gone to head quarters, with a view to having the old arrangements re- established. The "discontents," as a rival correspondent calls us, are quite satisfied to do without the direct mail to Yass; and are not over anxious for three mails a week, at least, they have never petitioned for such. March 20th, 1862.
