VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 April 1869
VIOTORIA. (Fromn ila AlTouerno Argeus.) THE interest attached to the proceedings of the bribery committee begins to flag, and the evidence taken at the last two sittings pre cents none of those startling features which in the early stages of the inquiry were so prominent. The testimony has become for the most part of a recapitulatory character. The ground is being gone over again, and from time to time fresh witnesses appear to corroborate or contradict some assertions made by previous witnesses. The committee sat for about three hours on Thursday afternoon, and received the evidence of the Hon. H. M. Murphy, M.L.C., Captain Mao Mahon, Messrs. Baillie, James and William Winter, Francis Bell, W. W. Wardell, and T. Mason. Mr. Murphy came before the committee voluntarily, for the purpose of denying that he had ever offered Mr. Jones the position of whip to the opposition at a salary of £800 per year, and that he had ever acknowledged to Mr. Longmore that he had done so. Cap tain Mac Ma...

The Age. THURSDAY, APRIL 15th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
"I THIURSDAY, APRFL 15t11, 1830. Tna Council of Education some months since sent to all the teachers ingits service a circular requiring a statement of their age, length of service, and some other particulars, in order, we suppose, to get the fullest information necessary, for the establishment of a superannuation fund. But it has been recently stated in the legislative assembly that no further steps have been taken in the matter. In most of the departments of the Civil Service pravision has been made for those retiring from active service. And considering the laborious nature of the service required of f teachers under the Council of Education, and the barely sufficient salary they re ceive, it is but an act of simple justice in their case that -they should be provided for in those days when age and failing health compel them to seek repose after years of duty which has severely strained their mental energies and been productive of good results which will be experienced for generat...

OUR MOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
OUR MOBS. fonro the Pall 3all Gazette.) Mons are sure to have their millennium when property and respectability are reluctantly abdicating in favour of num bers. Provisional authorities are slow to aot against those who are to be their masters to-morrow, and the people, having not yet succeeded to office with its responsi bilities, welcome anarchy as a useful ally. A single unfortunate instance of toleration makes a dangerous precedent, and when a weak minister truckles to a mob, or even treats with it, he ties the hands of his more determined successors. We should like to say nothing but good of the departed; but when the defunct ministry makes an elogy of its elegy, and claims, with its other virtues, a monopoly of administrative sagacity and energy, we cannot forget that it was this very ministry which made Mr. Beales a power. But all human greatness is fleeting, and tribunes of the people fall like aristocratic cabinets. In democratic movements it is the agitator of yesterday wh...
MR. PEABODY'S BENEFACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
MR. PEABODY'S IENEFACTIONS. (From ithe Nw York Times.) T~E benefactions of Mr. George Peabody are far larger than generally supposed. A few days ago, when his latest gift of half a million of dollars to the London poor was announced, we spoke of his donations as amounting to an aggregate of over four mil lion of dollars. But we have been furnished with an authentic list of Mr. Peabody's gifts, and we find that they amount to over double this sum-in fact, they amount in all to over ten millions of dollars in our currency. The following list (gold values) will display the remarkable facts; and this list does not in clude the large sums he gave to further American interests in the great exhibition of 1851, nor other large sums he has given for international banquets and such pur poses.

PEDIGREE IN CEREALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
PEDIGREE IN fl EREALS. I (From thei Australaaian.) AT a late meeting of the London Farmers' Club Mr. Hallett explained fully what he means by pedigree in wheat and other grains, as well as the means adopted by him to produce improved kinds. After a long a study of the subject the following are the s rules laid down:-c" 1. That no two grains of any cereal will produce plants precisely equal, and that, therefore, in any given quantity of any cereal, whether a dozen grains, a pint, or a quarter, there is one grain superior in producing power to any of the others. 2. That this superiority is in heritable. 3. That it may, by the repeated selection year after year of the best descend ant grain, be greatly increased, and become practically fixed." The system is, therefore, I one of selection long continued. The best head of the kind of grain to be improved is 7 picked out, and the seeds of it sown with duo regard to vegetable comfort-that is to say, in a good soil,.and with plenty of room....
MR. STEVENS AND THE PANAMA COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
MR. STEVENS AND THE PANAMA COMPANY. (Cro,, the .mnpire.) IF we remember aright, it is of the Arabs that the story is told that they are so very clever at horse-stealing as to be able to carry off the steed although the owner takes the precaution of mounting him and going to sleep on his back. The art of ingeniously swindling appears to have been brought to such perfection of late years that the Arab horse-thief no longer stands pre-eminent amongst the chevalier d'industrie, but must be contented to share his professional honours with other orders of the knights of St. Nicholas. The latest thing oht in this line is also, perhaps, the boldest in design and ex ecution since the spirited enterprise of Miran da; while for variety of detail and breadth of aonaeption it might fairly take precedence of that famous piece of sharp practice. We allude to the project of Mr. Stevens, whereby that far-seeing and adventurous individual was about to take steps for the opening up of ocean steam traf...

Colonial Extracts Presbyterian Church, Round Plain. &nbsp; The ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the first Presbyterian Church in the Cooma district of Manaro, under the General Assembly of the Presyterian Church of New South Wales, took place on Tuesday March 30th, 1869, at Round Plain, in the presence of a numerous and very respectable audience. The occasion will long be remem- bered by those present, especially by the young, who had never witnessed the like before. Notwithstanding the torrents of rain that fell, the assemblage stood around the stone and watched the proceedings with much interest. There was a large and com- &nbsp; modious tent erected for the occasion. Sus- pended above the corner stone to be laid there was a very handsome flag with the following mottoes:-"Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ," (I. Cor., iii., 2). And, " Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men " (St. Luke ii...
