THE GOODENOUGH METHOD OF SHOEING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
THE GOODENOUGH METHOD OF SHOEING HORSES. (From teio Tlimes.) II 1860, Mr. Goodenough, an American gentleman, (well known in this country by his association with Mr. Rarey,) invented and patented a horseshoe which is said to. have succeeded in securing all necessary protection to the hoof of the horse, and in removing or reducing to a minimum the bad effects of earlier methods of horseshoe ing. The principle laid down by Mr. Good enough is that the shoe should resemble and preserve as far as possible the natural shape of the hoof of which it is a continua tion. The unshod horse has the under sur face of his foot on a general level plane, the frog and the whole margin of the hoof in contact with the ground, and the surface of the sole, between the frog and margin, somewhat raised by its own concavity. The Goodenough shoe is made precisely to follow the outline of the hoof for which it is in tended, and to reach exactly to the bars, never projecting at all beyond the heel. Its upper su...

CHEAP RAILWAYS FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
CHEAP RAILWAYS FOR AUSTRALIA. (From the Homo Netos.J THOUGH the introduction of the Victorian loan of £2,000,000 has been postponed, the arrangements for it are completed, and before our next number is published it will probably have been all subscribed. As this loan is chiefly intended for railways, it will not be inappropriate to remark that opinion at home has become very strong in favour of the least expensive modes of construction, the .lightest engines, and the most economical system of working. As far as possible all the new lines which the new parliament is asked to sanction will be surface lines, without expensive. tunnelling or costly embankments; and the engines will be constructed accordingly. Mr. R. F. Fairlie has the merit of having per sistently directed attention to these matters, and he has produced a system of all others the best adapted to the exigencies of the interior districts of new countries like Aus tralia. After what we said on these subjects in our last, w...
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 April 1869
VICTORIA. (From theo MKelbourne Argus.) FRIDAY was .set apart as a day of prayer and thanksgiving for the rain. Originally it was proposed to have a day of national prayer and humiliation on account of the drought; but that having broken up the public expres sion of feeling changed accordingly. Al though most of the churches and chapels were open, and the government offices, courts of law, banks, and insurance offices were closed, there were but few signs of any gene ral observance of the occasion. About half the shops in Collins-street were shut; but in Bourke-street business proceeded as usual. The public library and Art Treasures Exhi bition were open all day, and in the evening the theatres were well attended. Much of this was owing to the very scanty notice given that such an event as a day of general prayer was to take place; and so little pains were taken in this direction, that on Sunday last it was not till the evening service that most of the Anglican and other clergymen w...

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.--Blood to the Head with Symptoms of Apoplexy. --- Holloway's pills are un- deniably the finest medicine in the world for bilious- ness and indigestion, in all cases of deranged stomach determination of the blood to the head, biliousness, sick headaches, liver complaints which frequently end fatally, by producing apoplexy or paralysis. There is no medicine known that will give such immediate relief as these renowned pills ;.young and old, rich and poor, patronise them, and so many cures are ef fected by their use that their praise is sounded from tihe tor Id to the frigid zone; in truth persons who travel consider them a necessary requisite.

THE VICTORIAN ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
THE VIOTORIATN ASSEMBLY. C(From the Empire.): Tn-E report of the select committee appointed ce by the Legislative Assembly of Victoria to ny inquire into the charges made against cer ll tain members of that House on the occasion he of the trial of the action of Alexander v. g Jones, presents a most humiliating and ot alarming disclosure of parliamentary cor ,t. ruption. It appears that an. association of le land speculators, including among its mem bts bers some men of considerable wealth, has at been seeking to secure its aims by a free er distribution of money among members of Ic- parliament. Two measures-the Quieting *st of Titles Bill and the Land Certificate as Titles Bill-have been sustained in their y, passage through the Assembly by these un ,y worthy means. So that the bribery prac y_ tised has been directed to the purpose of in ts ducing members of parliament to sacrifice t, the public interest on that most vital ques s, tion for the community-the land question. id The rep...
