No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

IN o. II. I have just returned from a three days excursion into the country, a sort of raid of inquiry and observation, organised and un dertaken by a party. of club men for the ape. cial gratification of some recent arrivals. It was on a fine fresh morning, in early summer -and it must be borne in mind that the sea sons here correspond in period with the Eng. lish-when the cavalcade set out. Among the charms of attraction possessed by these rural expeditions must be reckoned that ele. ment which lends a zest to steeplechasing and ocean yacht races, viz., the excitement of a lit tie danger. The two-sworded magnates, with their followings of reckless retainers, are notoriously subject to sudden fits of frenzied animosity to foreigners, and this backward country has at present no police force. We were all mounted on Japanese ponies, hardy little beasts of great power of endurance; but, to use language sportingly descriptive, entirely without mouths, and therefore only to be con trolle...

IM:PRESSIONS OF JAPAN. i : BY AN AUSTRALIAN COLONIST. (From the Australasian.) :TH$E following extracts from some private *:letters received from a gentleman long resi dent in Melbourne will be found possessed of interest for very many of our readers : No. I. On Easter Sunday morning the P. and O. Company's steamer, Singapore, in which I had been voyaging, cast anchor off, this port, and gave me my first glimpse of the manners and customs of Japan. The weather was bright, fresh, and sunny, like a happy speci men of the English spring, and a little fleet of boats were bobbing about on the glancing waters in expectation of our arrival. .These boats were manned by Japanese - sturdy fellows, of a dusky red complexion, and habited in one garment of a rough cottony character and bluish tint. All these mariners had the tops of their heads close shaved, and the remaining hair brushed back, plastered together, and tied in a lump with packthread. A very short residence in Japan is sufficient ...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

NEW QUARTZ REEF AT MUTTAMA.-The Gun- dagai correspondent of the Wagga Wagga Express states that a new qartz reef was discovered at Muttama last week; and if the specimens exhibited are any criterion of the richness of the stone which has yet to be disembowelled, working the reef   promises to be a lucrative speculation. Some   eighteen months have now elapsed since the pros-   pectors' shaft was first sunk, and during that short time an immense amount of work has been done, for   the limited capital invested. Some of the first claims opened have been abandoned, either for the sake of   testing the ground in the vicinity of ones discovered,     or from a want of funds. No great piles have been   made; but, generally speaking, the miners earn   wages, and those who have only spent a few months   in proving the resources of that part of the district, &am...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE ACCOUNTED FOR.— It will be in the recollection of many of our readers that a young man named Charles, a junior teacher in one of the Mait- land schools, very mysteriously disappeared whilst temporarily staying with a friend near Branxton, about eighteen months ago. He took his departure early in the morning, and from his having left some of his clothes and a watch behind him, his friend believed he would soon return, but he never did. The police, the inhabitants of Branxton and sur- rounding localities, as well as many persons from Maitland, made a diligent search for the missing man for about a fortnight or three weeks after his disappearance, but no trace of him dead or alive could be found. The search was then given up—everybody being fully satisfied that it would be useless to prosecute further. Various rumours were afloat as to what became of him, and the people with whom he was staying suffered no small an- noyance in the matter. Within the last few da...

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

TO THE EDITOR.   SIR, - Last evening I was walking with my wife near the English Church, where we were attracted by the sounds of sacred song, to listen to those whose voices were ascending on high in praise to the Omnipotent -sounds ever grateful to the ear, no matter by what class of religionists offered. While we were thus engaged, four persons ran from the church porch to near where we were standing, using the most dis- gusting, filthy, and blasphemous language, at their inability to find their exit. This was just as the hymn at the close of service was being sung, and which should have received their profound attention. I was more sensibly struck at the enormity of their behaviour by reason of such language being uttered on sacred ground. Little, I fear, ded the respectable widowed mother of one of the young men I refer to fancy her son left hsi suburban home to pass his   Sunday eveing in the society of another such scape- grace as himself - one who h...

THE PROPOSED LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

THE PROPOSED LOAN. ALTHOUGH the Assembly adopted Mr. Martin's motion for going into committee to consider his proposal for raising a loan of £3,000,000 for railway purposes, and thus saved the Ministry from a total de- feat, it is evident enough that the pro- posal will be rejected in committee by a large majority. The Premier's glowing speech in announcing the railway policy of his Administration, and the Treasurer's too sanguine estimate of the financial position of the Government, had the effect of dazzling the eyes of members; and under the influence of newly excited hopes   and flattering expectations they were ready to sanction almost any loan that might be asked for. Mr. Eager's simple narrative of his remarkable negoxiations with Kohn and Co. awoke the represen- tatives of a heavily taxed people from their pleasing but delusive dreams. The common sense of men, who knowing little of the mysteries of European stock-job- bing, were yet not devoid of business sagaci...

Local and District News.     NUGGETS FROM LITTLE RIVER. — On Monday Mr. E. Walker, of Feagan's Creek, Little River, brought to our office three splendid nuggets of gold, weighing one pennyweight less than nine ounces. These beau- tiful samples were found in a claim at Little River some time last week ; but by whom, or the precise locality where, our informant was not permitted to divulge. The nuggets now lie at the Oriental Bank in this town. NEW POSTAGE STAMPS. — The Government Gazette of the 20th instant notifies the issue of new postage stamps of the value of fourpence and tenpence respec- tively, from and after the 21st inst.

BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

BLIND.* (F1rom the Pall Mall Gazette.) ACCORDING to available statistics, which appear to be far from satisfactory, there are about 30,000 blind people in Great Britain. Taken in large divisions-in England and Wales the ratio of blind to the rest of the population is 1 in 1037; in Scotland, 1 in 1086; Ireland, 1 in 843; and the Channel Islands, 1 in 728. The agricultural counties are far ahead of the manufacturing districts in the number of their blind inhabitants. Thus, in Cheshire and Lancashire the ratio is 1 in 1253; and in Bedfordshire, where, Mr. Johns reminds us, the young people are chiefly employed in straw-plaiting-it is only 1 in 1325. On the other hand, Wilts, Dorset, Devon, and Cornwall return 1 in 793, and in Herefordshire, " with its noble woods, rivers, mountains, and valleys," the ratio is 1 in 693. We do not know whether there are any statistics which exhibit the difference in the proportion of aged blind people living in the manufacturing and agricultural district...

GOING TO SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

GOING TO SCHOOL. BY GEORGE COOPER. HE helped her over the meadow brook, While her feet she timidly set (Twin lilies they were!) on the mossy stone With the cooling ripples wet. They passed the brook, and it seemed to sing With a sweeter, merrier sound, As the two with their school-books wandered on O'er the clover-laden ground. O little maiden! how fair you were, With your eyes of heavenly blue; And the dimples played on your cheeks, as play On a rose the drops of dew. As play on a rose the drops of dew, When-the breezes merrily blow ! And your lips they were tints of the ripening peach, In the morning's ruddy glow. Bare feet, how they twinkled among the grass ! Did you know, whenever you took The path for school, that he waited for you By the willow-shaded brook ? Since then, the fragrant blossoms have come To the boughs, ah ! many a time; And a bridge is over the brook, that sings, As of old, its pleasant rhyme. And two are straying upon the bank, As I pen these wandering words, A...

IN EXTREMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

IN EXTREMITY. UP in a great Tooley-street warehouse, six high stories above the ground, and everywhere round me wool-bales upon bales of wool, which we have been craning up all day and in at the open door. Floors and floors beneath stored with jute and dye-woods, teas, coffees, spices, tobaccos, and lowest of all, tallow in huge hogsheads. Riches from all parts of the world lying on hand, and waiting the finish of the commercial enterprise which should consign them to traders and then to the people of this busy country. "What's the matter with Jack Wood?" said one of the men in the afternoon. But excepting that he looked a little wild about the eyes, I didn't see anything more about him than might often be seen in men who will drink heavily at times; and so I said. But at last, towards evening, when I was longing to get away home to spend my even ing comfortably, I was left alone upon that floor with him, and felt a bit startled to see him go all at once to the open door where the c...

STATE FORESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

STATE FORESTS. (From the Australasian.) IT is not often that an opportunity is afforded as of cordially praising the powers that be for the exercise of a wise forethought, and for the performance of administrative acts which, without the slightest detriment to the present generation, will promote the welfare and obtain the gratitude of posterity. But the department of lands and survey, by securing the reservation of seventy-two thou- sand acres of land as state forests on three of our mountain ranges, of ten thousand six hundred and sixty-six acres of wood land elsewhere, and by taking steps to protect the timber on the You Yangs, and on Mounts Beckworth, Tarrengower, and Warrenheip, have conferred substantial advantages on the colony of such a character as is only appre- ciable by those who are fully conversant with the enormous evils inflicted upon other coun- tries by the indiscriminate destruction of the timber on the mountains. War, "plague, pestilence, and famine," have done f...

Original Poetry. WOODLAND CHIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 25 September 1867

WOODLAND CHIMES. Oh, list to the chimes in the green woodlands ring ing,   As the west wind comes sighing amongst the' tall   trees,   Kiising the petals of the fair flowers and flinging Their delicate odours on the scent laden breeze List! how softly and thrilling the sweet numbers   flow, As .the breeze o'er the ridges comes floating along, Rustling the drooped fronds as they wave to and fro, And mingling their music with the grey thrush's     song.     Down in the gullies, where the brown bees are humming, The sweet sylvan concert is chiming on still;   For Spring in her mantle of blossoms is coming, The woods' leafy labyrinth with beauty to fill,-- The ridges and dingles and glens to illume With the red tulip's sheen and the mimosa's bloom,           And with the tangled vines' tendrils in rich purpl...
