taqla1 and gisttiqt teius.. SCOOAcI ACCIDENT. -- Tidings reached town late on Monday evening that. the mail coach which left here that morning with five or six passengers, amongst whom were Mr W. G. O'Neill (the proprietor of the coach), Mr John M'Guigan, and his superintendent, Mr Swansea, and a lady and gentleman whose names are unknown, had been capsized near Gundaroo, and that Mr O'Neill was seriously hurt.

SULPHUROUS ACID AS A FOOD-PRESERVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
SULPHUROUS ACID AS A FOOD-PRE SERVER. (From the Glasgow .Herald.) THERE are few of our readers, we dare say, who have forgotten the pamphlets of Dr. Dewar of Kirkcaldy and Mr., Pairman of Bigger, which occasioned so much controversy some time ago, on the efficacy of snlphurous acid and sulphur fimes as curative .agents. Like all other popular lions, the great sulphur cure hadits day. For some timr it seemed as if it would supplant every other drni" in the pharmscopaeia. We believe that sulphur was so much in demand that it actnually rose in price, and apiothecaries whio had not been in the habit of keepingr great quantities in stock had some little dificulity- in nupplying the wants of the multitude who had been advised to try it for connghs,-colds, sore ithroats, and nearly every ill that flesh is heir to. A spray prodn?l*rbecame almost indispensable in all well-regulated families. Everybody had some extraordinary case of cure to tell his neighnbours. This one had got rid of a cong...

RIGHTS OF MARRIED WOMEN IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
RIGHTS OF MARRIED WOMEN IN VICTORIA. (From the Hamilton Spectator.) TI the ladies of Victoria remember with indignation T the ungallant way in which Mr. George Higin. c botham as attorney-Ueneral persecuted the sex on account of bazaar ruffi-s, they must now admit that in the capacity of simple LI.L.A. he has attempted I to regain their good graces, and atone for the slight formerly put upon them. Mr. Higinbotham has employed a portion of his recent leisure in framing I a bill which ought at once to restore him to favour with his fair foes, seeing that the substance of it implies a desire to admit that woman is at least possessed of sufficient common sense to allow of her occupying, even as a married person, a position of I comparative independence with reference to the sterner sex. The rights of women treated in the American bloomerising style has always been a ridiculous if not hateful subject to those who have a true estimate of feminine worth and feminine weak ness. All the acts...
CRICKET. YASS V. GININDERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 March 1869
CRICKET. YASS v. GININDERRA. (From Friday's Courier.) &nbsp; Yesterday the match between the Yass and the Gininderra cricket clubs was &nbsp; played in Hume's paddock, close to Yass. As in the contest with the Murrumburrah &nbsp; cricketers on last Anniversary Day, the &nbsp; Yass players were victors, on this occasion in one innings. The day was very hot and sultry, and the number of spectators on the ground, probably because of the great heat was, at no period of the day, very numerous. Shortly after eleven o'clock the usual toss up took place, and was won by the Ginin- derra-players, who sent the Yass eleven to &nbsp; the wickets, and the game commenced at 11.20. a.m. On each side an aboriginal took part, and each proved themselves most excellent players. The Gininderra darkie has already achieved for himself quite a local reputation as a cricketer; the Yass &nbsp; darkie, after his exceedingly good play yes- terday, must be in a fa...

THE ASSASSINATION OF THE GOVERNOR OF BURGOS. MADRID, January 26..- Terrible news reached us yesterday from Burgos. The civil Governor of that city and province, Gutierrez de Castro, was barbarously assassi nated in full daylight, in the presence of a large crowd, the actors no less than the spectators of the atrocious deed being a crowd. The provincial secretary, who was with the Governor, escaped with difficulty indeed, we are: told, almost miraculously from the hands of the murderers. A police inspector was-wounded.

EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 March 1869
EUROPEAN. A conflict in Austria between the, clergy and the government still continues, and the latter shows no disposition to yield any of the ground it has taken up. Two new laws complete the recent liberal legislation with regard to civil marriage, and are regarded as a step towards the complete separation of the church from the state. The clergy meanwhile keeps up its" hostility, and the government replies by repressive measures. An ultramontane paper, the Friend of the People, has been seized for publishing a letter from the Pope condemn.ng the new institutions of the empire. This rigorous act has produced, it is said, a profound sen sation, and is without precedent in. Haps burg annals since the reign of the Emperor Joseph i. The deep sea portion of the French s Atlantio telegraph cable has commenced being shipped on board the Great Eastern. The French chambers were opened by the Emperor in person on Monday, the 18th J January, in a speech moderate, friendly, 1 pacific, and mo...

WEDm? SDAY-MIAROl 17. In the Legislative Council, Mr. Gordon moved the second reading of the bill to repeal the Workhouse Act of 1866, pointing out that no steps had been taken to carry the ant into effect since it was passed in September, 1866, and condemning the provisions of the act. Mr. Docker opposed the second reading of the bill, stating that before the late government left office they had taken steps to carry out the act, and had placed a sum of money on the estimates, which had been omitted by their successors. Mr. Weekee stronelv supported the bill, condemn ing the Workhouse Act as most arbitrary and un English. Mr. Owen also condemned the Workhouse Act, and was astonished that the legislature had ever assented to it. Mr. Darley hoped that the Council would pause before they consented to repeal an act so lately passed, and which had not yet been tried. Mr. Holt condemned the oact as most unjust to the poor man. Mr. A. Campbell was in favour of retaining the act, which had ...
