PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Fronm the 8. 3f. Ilerald.) MONDAYr-MAncH 22. 1N the Aesembly, The House went into committee of supply on the proposed vote of £3826 for the Roman Catholic Orphan School. Mr. J. Stewart took exception to the votes for this and the Protestant Orphan School, on the ground that they wore perpetuating state-aid to religion. Mr. Robertson said that he had always been of opinion that the moment the state gave money to an institutionj that lostitution ought to be UtaeeatAlea and thought that the sooner the present systemt,of orphan sohools was done away with the better. The amount was then voted. For courts of petty sessions, the sum of £39,367 was asked. Mr. Lucas said that the amount could be reduced by £9600 without detriment to the service, or with out interfering with a single court of petty-sessions. Altogether there were ninety-one courts of potty sessions, in forty-nine of which there were police magistrates, and in forty-one there were clerks of pett...

THE STORY OF THE BAD LITTLE BOY WHO DIDN'T COME TO GRIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
THE STORY OF THE BAD LITTLE BOY WHO DIDN'T COME TO GRIEF. BY 1?ARK TWAIN. '' ONCE there was a bad little boy whose name was Jim-though, if you will notice, you will find that bad little boys are nearly always called James in your Sunday-school books. It was very strange, but still it was true, that this one was called Jim. He didn't have a sick mother, either-ia sick mother who was pious and had the consumption, and would be glad to lie down in the grave and be at rest but for the strong love she bore her boy, and the anxiety she felt that the world would be harsh and cold towards him when she was gone. Most bad boys in the Sunday books are named James, and have sick mothers, who teach them to r say, "Now I lay me down," &c., and sing them to sleep with sweet plaintive voices, and kiss them good-night, and kneel down by the bedside and weep. But it was different with this fellow. He was named Jim, and there wasn't anything the matter with his mother -no consumption, or anyth...
A SCHOOL AND A FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
A SOHOOL AND A FARMS.. Ui?nn the above heading the Ballarat Star describes an attempt recently initiated in Ballarat to combine scholastic with horti cultural and agricultural pursuits. Our contemporary says :-Any one walking down Sturt-street, eastward, and looking away beyond the town, may spy a group of build ings perched. upon a wooden eminence about midway between the Melbourne road and the quiet little hamlet of Fellmongers, so soon to be submerged by the great Gong Gong reservoir of the Ballarat water-supply. This group of buildings is the Gracefield establishment; it is situated a little west ward of the centre of a farm of seventy-four acres. The area of the farm includes hills, slopes, and gullies, and from the school buildings there is a fine view of the valley of the Upper Yarrowee, the town of Ballarat, and the hills and woodlands beyond, while the rush of the iron horse may be seen from the time it leaves the Ballarat east station till it is lost in the bush at the cur...

In the Assembly, Mr. Cummings called attention to the unsatis. factory manner in which the works on No. 8 section of the Great Western extension was now being carried on. Mr. Sutherland said that his attention had been already called to the slow progress making on this section, and he had directed the engineer to inform the contractor that no extension of time would be allowed.

PRESS AND STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
PRESS AND STAGE. (Fromn the dustralasian.) TrE decline of the stage is a matter attract ing attention in every part of the civilised world. In London, in New York, in Mel bourne, the experience is the same. Every where the stage is sinking, and-it must regretfully be acknowledged - deservedly sinking. And here it is well to draw an important distinction. The decadence of the drama by no means implies a lessening of the number of theatres. On the contrary, places of public amusement are multiplying in num ber, competition is as keen as it ever was, the auditorium is as well filled ; but still it is no less a fact that the drama in its higher aspect is declining, and the influence of the stage fast waning. The historic, the classic, the poetic drama is almost extinct. ;Modern authorship of high-class drama is so exedptional that it but illustrates the general proposition. Knowles and Bulwer are almost, if not quite, the last of that school of stage-writing which stands in such strong ...
OUR MEAT EXPORT—ITS POSITION AND PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
OUR MEAT EXPORT-ITS POSITION AND PROSPECTS. (From thle Australasian.) AuBTRU&LSrA and South America with their' illimitable reaches of grazing land must eventually be the chief moat suppliers of England and other crowded countries of. 1 Western Europe, and the recent cattle plague in the old country, by raising prices to an exorbitant figure, directed general attention to the subject. Our enterprise has 1 accordingly been aroused; but there is still i much up-hill work in the undertaking. The cattle plague having ceased, the consumers over-sea have become fastidious. They say that not one of the various experiments yet I in use for preserving the meat is in all res pects satisfactory; and this is not only the I general dictum, but it is also the verdict ex pressed by the food committee of the society t of arts. They want us to send them joints I of meat which, in spite of the long voyage, can more nearly compete in succulence, nourishment, and flavour with meat freshly kille...
A JAPANESE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
A JAPANESE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE (From the Pall lfall Gazette.) BELIEVERS in parliamentary government as the panacea for all political ills will be rejoiced to hear of its extension to Japan. The Times has published what purports to be a report of one of the first debates in the Japanese parliament. The Times does not vouch for the report, which, however, is said to be translated from the Kioto Govern ment Gazette, No. 8. The modesty with which those speakers who had no opinion on the subject in debate avowed the fact is highly commendable, and might perhaps be imitated with advantage by speakers nearer home. Nor is the brevity with which gentle men who had opinions expressed them to the House a whit less admirable. The subjects of debate were-1. The establishment of a Sai-ban-eho at Hakodate. 2. The appointment of a commander-in chief, a lieutenant-general, and a military secretary. 3. The propriety of changing the name of Yezo, and of dividing the province into two circuits-the nor...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 April 1869
AANIMALr PIrIsxoonoYs.--Those who have been in the habit of hearing cattle stealing cases tried in our criminal courts must have remarked how stockowners and those in charge of stock swear distinctly to a beast by its general appearance, an identity which is considered of more value than that which depends upon the brands alone. It sometimes happens, however, that there are no particular marks on the beast to enable such persons to explain the mode in which they arrive at such an identification, which the .legal gentlemen employed in the- case contend is not sufficient in law. A case oc curred at the ]Braidwood police court on Thursdqy last, wherein the prosecutor and one or two of the witnesses ii a cattle-steal ing case were cross-examined at great length as to the peculiarities in the countenance of a bullock by which they were enabled to swear to it by its face alone, it not having a solitary mark upon it, being all red, and its owner having many other snail-horned bul locks bes...
