THE LATE MAXIMILIAN. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

THE LATE M AXIMILIAN. [COMMUNICATED-] I OBSERVE that the papers, both foreign. and "colonial, are full of the different: accounts .given of the assassination of the late Em peror of Mexico, and a general feeling per ivades that a more cowardly murder has not ap?eared on the pages of history. The ?greatest tyrants that have existed before our .day were not guilty of a crime so great in magnitude as the last "judicial murder"" we have read of. It is asserted that we are living in an age of enlightenment, and our lives are shadowed by acts of mercy and justice, and the mind is naturally, shocked when we find nations supporting such fiends as Jaurez and his generals, as they are termed. Mexico has, after many years of duplicity in politics and want of morality in principle, at last completed her destiny and become dis graced among nations of the earth by these murders, perpetrated under tl'.e ensign of L'Liberty." We should not refer to Maxi "milian as one of noble blood, to excuse him ...

QUEANBEYAN. "AGE" Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

The screwing, down of the side planks of thie Queen's Bridge, without which the structure was to 'some' extent dangerous, is now going on, and will be completed by Wednesday. Lovers of angling are likely to have 'a fine season for their favourite diversion, as there are signs of an abundance of fish in the river at our very doors. For some seasons past, owing to the absence of sufl.cient water to enable the fish to ascend from the Murrum bidgee, there have been very few in the Queanbeyan, especially of large fish; but now, although so early in the season, there have been several fiun hauls of fish caught near town. Last Friday two were caught at the river station weighing 281b; and on Saturday evening a son of Mr Mcibail succeeded in ' booking four at the Molonglo junction that together weighed 161b. The Rev.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

VICTORIA. A RATHER curious misunderstanding, which created much laughter, occurred yesterday at the criminal sessions during the hearing of a case of supposed swindling. The prosecutor, a retired digger, troubled with deafness, who had been so simple minded a year ago as to treat a whole bar-full of strangers, and then allow them to measure him across his chest, so near to his pocket-book that it disappeared in the process, was cross-examined by the prisoner touching the substance of certain con versations which had then taken place. After stating that they had spoken of a large man " of the name of Smith," who they said was six times as large of girth as any present, he said he calculated the width of the man to be seven yards. The prisoner considering that his words must on that occasion have been misunderstood, asked if that was not so. The prosecutor showed by his manner that he had not heard the question; so raising his voice con siderably, the prisoner said, " was your hearing...

ROBERT LOWE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

ROBERT LOWE. THE following sharp satire on our old friend Robert Lowe is from the Daily Tele graph:'- Last night the Reform Bill was read for the first time in the House of Lords. On Friday there is 'to be a meeting of Lord Derby's supporters, with the view, we pre sume, of discussing the prospects of the mea sure; Monday is fixed for the second read ing; and, should the debate ?ii`d on that .evening, the labours, of the committee will begin on. the following Friday. This arrangement looks business-like. Their lordships are alive to the momentous nature of the reform question, both in its bearing on the country and on their own body. And they have good reason to display unwonted activity; for if the bill carries the strongest credentials from one class of statesmen, it comes laden with the most awful warnings from another. Foremost among the pro phets of evil is Mr. Lowe, and the right honourable gentleman's speech is so extra ordinary that it invites more than a passing notice. Mr....

THE VISIT OF THE SULTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

THE VISIT OF THE SULTAN. (From the Daily Telegraph.) `His Imperial Majesty Abdul Aziz is un qiiestionably the lion of the day; and his presence, or the reasonable chance of it, would suffice to draw a vast concourse, in the teeth of an otherwise bad or indifferent bill of attractions. The programme of yesterday's entertainment, at the Crystal Palace, was, to be sure, as far from being indifferent, not to say biad, as any programme at the Crystal Palace could very well be. A concert, of wliiahilve shall speak in due course, was well described in the book adorned on the outside with the Sultan's sign-manual-in very choice Turkish and a very hard caligraphic knot-as " an extraordinary musical festival." Extra ordinary it was, both in quantity and quality; and its division into two parts, with an interval of nearly two hours between, helped to prolong the pleasures of the evening till a much later hour than usually sees the Crystal Palace illuminated for a promenade. Then, in addition t...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN PITT-STREET.--Betwee half-past 9 and a quarter to 10 o'clock last evening, an= alarm of fire was raised in Pitt-street, near lMalret-street. Flames were observed to be rising either from the back premises of Messrs. Farmer, Painter, and Pope; from the back of the Royal Hotel, in George-street; or from the rear of Mr. Goulston's extensive hat, clothing, and mercers establishment, No. 267, Pitt-street. In less than ten minutes the flames had acquired such force and volume, as to leave no doubt that Mr. Goulston's ,establishment was on fire. The evening was dark, :with a steady fall of rain, and once the flames ac :quired strength the whole of this part of the city was illuminated with a fearful glare. The shingles and :slates on the roofs of houses within an area of two huiidred -yards could be distinctly counted. The sudden cry of fire alarmed not only the people in the neighbourhood, but the visitors to the Victoria .RPheatre,-the Albert Club members so far dista...

AN ADVENTURE IN THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

AN ADVENTURE IN THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. . . wiSHED to prolong my walk, and as my Suidde was forced to return, I pursued my S:ramble alone. Taking the first path that led inland, I was soon pushing blindly ,,through a mass of shrubbery that overhung, and occasionally obstructed the way. The pleasant sound of falling waters ere long led me to the banks of a stream that rushed '.swiftly through a deep worn bed, where I stood transfixed by the scene before me. In a mirror-like pool reclined a youthful na tive, of form so perfect that she might have been a model for a sculptor. At first she w.,,Was perfectly still; but soon, dashing her round arms into the water, she threw a sparkling shower of spray above her head, .and aqshe flung back the long tresses from her face and neck, she for the first time ob 'served me. An exclamation of surprise 'escaped her, and springing to a sheet of. tapa on the bank hard by, she threw it :round her person, and with a few agile bounds hastened to the top ...

Our Sydney Letter. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

Wednesday. THE weather during the last week has been very unsettled, and to day there has been quite a gale blowing from the eastward. A   heavy sea is on outside the heads, and already one accident is reported. A ketch, the name or which has not yet been ascertained, sunk about an hour since just outside South Head, and one man was drowned. Floods are looked for from the interior. News from the South Sea Islands reports   the murder of one of the missionaries and six native teachers and the wreck of a barque occured in Melburne which was at the Islands loading guano. Mr Garrett's Newspaper Postage Repeal motion was negatived in the Assembly last night by a majority of six. 'The Prince of Wales Theatre although ably managed, and although expensively con- ducted, fails to draw so good a house as it, deserves. This may be partly owing to the weather which has been so unsettled. But to some extent it may be attributed to the disgraceful partiality of the press...

PATENT MEAT=PTRESERVINGNAPPARATUS,, INVENTED BY MR. AUGUSTUS MORRIS. (From the 8. M. :Herald.) Ii a small nook, near the top of the wind ing valley of La Croza (not yet shorn of all its sylvan beauties in that part of it which opens into the alluvial tract at Rushcutter's Bay) stand the New South Wales Ice Com pany's works, sheltered from hot winds and fervid afternoon sunshine by steep banks of earth and ranges of rock. Cottages are rising here.and there on the adjacent slopes, and imperfect outlines of streets are begin wiing to be visible in the green fields, so long left untouched, to the left of the main road froin Sydney to Paddington-near the site of the old toll-bar, and just beyond the Roman Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart. It is not a spot which presents any very peculiar local attractions, for everything is in that rather disagreeable transition state which seems to be inevitably antecedent to all material improvement and hopeful progress. Nevertheless, a number of ge...

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (From? the Australasian.) THE KITCHEN. GARDEN.--During the past week the weather has been such as to very much retard opera tions in this department, yet the fine rains we have had were much required in some localities. A few warm days will set vegetable life into full action, and hosts of weeds will not be slow in making an appearance; in fact, nothing will keep them down except digging them under, and wherever the spade or fork can befreely used we prefer it to hoeing, as being much more effectual; besides, the loosening of the soil amongst crops greatly accelerates growth, which is of much importance at this season. As peas and kidney beans (runners) advance in growth give them a few inches of earth, and, where sticks or rods are available, let them be supported by all means. These crops when left on the ground with out support at this season are seldom worth gather ing. Continue still to make successional sowings. For small gardens the dwarf va...
