The Age. THURSDAY, MARCH 11th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
• THURSDAY, MARCH 11th, 1869.: DR WILSON, M.L.A., deserves the thanks of the country for an endea vour to stay the tide of intemperance so fearfully prevalent in the colony; and though we fear the measure in troduced will not, without some great modification, pass into law, still -he has taken a step to show that he has, an earnest desire for the true welfare of the people. Thinking men agree that there are at present in trade far more public houses than the necessi ties of the localities; where they are established call for. In the country districts the proportion of 'public' houses' to-- the resident population should"be greater than in the case of large towns and cities, : to meet the `demands of bona fide travellers ;" but in large centres of population, and in the, city of Sydney .in particular, many licensed, houses mightl be dis pensed with to the evident good of 'society. ;We do not hold exclusively to the opinion-the less public houses the less intemperance.; because ob ser...

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
: GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (From the .duatralaaian. - THE KITEN GARDEN.-Where attention: has been given' to our previous directions regarding trenching and manuring of the soil, as soon as rain comes this will be in good condition to receive the principal crops requiring to be sown at this season. The long continuance of drought has retarded these operations, so that when rain does come all will be activity and bustle; already in some localities where the soil is light and deep, crops have been got in; but until a change takes place it will not be advisable to sow or plant extensively. Previously planted crops will, however, require atten tion to carry them forward, and every assist ance must be given to keep the soil loose and free around all growing crops. Cab bages and cauliflowers planted last month have just got sufficient hold to keep them growing until more rain falls; but in the meantime frequent stirrings of the soil around their stems will be of the greatest Sben...
HOW TO PROVIDE A SUPPLY OF WATER FOR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
HOW! TO. PROVIDE A SUPPLY OF WATER FOR SYDNEY. (From theo Evening Newa.) Is there any particular reason why common. sense should be excluded from the considera tion of the question of water-supply for Sydney and its suburbs? We have now, it is to be hoped, pretty well exhausted theo ,retical, crotchety, and scheming people's plans, and have got almost as far as the dis cussion stage can carry us. There is at length room for something like practical: common sense. Everything that we want, except water, we take care to store in sea sons of abundance, to provide for in times of scarcity. Why save our bread and not our drink? Why should we not store water as well as food? In the matter of the supply of this prime necessity we have shown our selves less provident than the blackfellows. The neighborhood of Sydney is better fur nished by nature with an abundance of good, water than almost any large city in the world. But nature has not done everything for us. Nature, however beneficent, ha...
A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
" A STRANGE STORY. (From the Indian lFtblio Opinion.) WE publish a very extraordinary letter from a young Englishwoman to an Indian Maha :rajah. The letter is a bona fido one, and it was in the presence of a European officer on a visit to the native nobleman that the mail brought it in, and that it was made over to him to translate, to the evident consternation of the native hearers. The letter is accom panied by a testimonial from a minister of religion testifying to the lady's qualifications for the position of a wife. It would be charitable to assume, as indeed is not im probable, that both the young woman and her spiritual adviser were lunatics; for as long as native society is not reformed, there can be no doubt that the wife of the lowest and poorest English peasant enjoys a life of greater freedom, happiness, and esteem than the partner of the most exalted oriental prince. We should have avoided the sub ject, but we feel that it is necessary to pro test against the nigger wor...
