BELGIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
BELGIU1. A' feeling of :temporary irritability, has :arisen, between the-Frenoh".and :Belgium press. It appears .the FroeiiohEiastern ail way wanted to purchase :the Luxemburg line, with the view, it: is said by the sup porters of. the transfer, to increase the comrn n~erce between the two countries; but the Belgian chambers, at the instigation of the ministry, passed a vote prohibiting the rail ways of the country from being transferred to foreign companies. It is alleged this de cision is based on the fact that the purchase will nullify the London convention, whereby Dutch Luxemburg is neutralised, because the eastern lines of France connect the great fortresses and arsenals of Paris on the one hand and Brussels on the other. In other words, Belgium feared she would be swal lowed up by her big neighbour. The affair is substantially composed, as the Belgian government carried their point.

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
Ohoaonial xftrntts. A NxIC SORTF or PAMILY.-On Wed nesday last a youth who looked much older than his years, named Valentine Maher was brought before the the bench of magistrates here and committed to take his trial for stealing a saddle and bridle, left by its owner a:person working on the road to Gunning, planted under a case at the back of an un occupied hut. The voice and demeanour of prisoner was such as to raise a presumption that he belonged to the 'Charles Bates' class so well described by Dickens in Oliver Twist and on making inquiry into his connexions we found that his family history was some what tainted with crime. His relatives were formerly residents of Collector, and removed afterwards to Brcabalbane Plains. One of his brothers became celebrated by having, soon after his marriage tied his wife up and set fire to her, a sort of auto.da-fe not per mitted under British rule, and in order to make him sensible of the fact he was tried at the Goulburn Circuit Court and rec...
The Age. THURSDAY, APRIL 22nd, 1869. "WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WINE?" TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
THURSDAY, APRIL 22nd, 1809. .,'WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WVINEB " TO THE EDITOR. Sm,---Allow me a few desultory remarks relative to this matter. There is no study that acquires greater interest that the study of "the many peculiarities under which the results of vitality are made cognoscent to our senses; and although we cannot go very far in analysing the combinations which sustain animal life, still we can take a peep at some of them, a id inferences will sug gest themselves which, if not accurately true, nevertheless border upon truth. Bou- ' singault, when making experiments upon the value of different kinds of food to sus tain animal life, at his farm at Alsace, admits that although chemistry in some instances aids in elucidating results, still in others deductions based upon it are altogether valueless.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
VIOTORIA. ... AT the dinner in connexion with the annual celebration of the Melbourne university, Mr. Wrixon, M.L.A., in proposing the toast of " the Press," said he considered there was something peculiarly' appropriate in doing honour to the press at the great annual festivity of the university; for not alone were they two fellow-workers in the great cause of progress and enlightenment, but there existed between them a closer affinity than a casual observation would suggest. Each, in addi tion to its primary duty, had a secondary and a higher one, in discharging which they were brought into close alliance. The primary duty of the university was to teoach; and having been one of its students himself, he could bear willing testimony to the admirable manner lini vwpiacl it discharged that duty. But. beside this :and behind- this lay another great purpose of this instittitioi, namely, to maintain in our country a high standard of learning-to bear aloft, as it were, the ark of knowledg...
PROGRESS OF LIBERALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 April 1869
PROGRESS OF ??LIBER?BIS?[. (From the Yass Courier.) - Tau English mail brought the intelligence of the death of Ernest Jones. With many f persons in this colony the event will recall to memory an epoch in the history of the B last twenty-five years, which, by comparing r it with the present state of politics, cannot fail to awaken a more than usual interest. Chartism is no longer a recognised principle of political life; it has .merged into acts that have ceased to be designated by that name. It is, however, under another nomenclature, an active agent in the work ing out of domestic government. Ernest Jones was the representative man of opinions which were, in his time of political activity, regarded as dangerously revolutionary by those who feared that change was synony mous with destruction. The charter and its six points, universal suffrage, vote by ballot, annual parliaments, payment of members, the abolition of property qualification, and equal electoral districts, was looked u...
