Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 31 August 1867

THE REV. DR LANG - In hxis speech, in moving the second reading of the Triennial Parliaments Bill, in the Legislative Assemlbly yesterday, Dr Lang     stated that the present is the last Parliament of which he will be a member. It is understood that the po- litical position of the reverend gentleman is regarded with disfavour by the Presbyterian General Assem- bly, but it is well known that he intimated to his friends before that body was called into existence, that it was his intention to retire from public life at the termination of the present Parliament. Dr Lang has been a member or nine different representative assemblies since 1843, having in that year been elected for the first time for the district of Melbourne. He was next elected in 1850 in conjunction with Mr Wentworth for Sydney, and in the following year he was again elected at the head. of the poll for Sydney, which then returned three members - Mr Wentworth and Mr Lamb were elected as his col...

COUNSEL TO BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

COUNSEL TO BOYS. The following fitting counsels on self trust, taken from an American publication, are written by Horace Greely, editor of the New York Tribune, than whom there are       few better qualified to give such advice as is here given to boys:-   When I was nine years old, there unex-   pectedly appeared one day in my father's humble farmhouse, the clergyman, doctor,   lawyer, and perhaps one or two other mag-   nates of our New England rural township, addressed my parents to this effect:-"Your eldest son is so promising a student, so   easy and rapid a learner, that we think he should have a better education than our common school can give him. We propose, therefore, that he be sent to Phillip's Aca- demy, and thence to the college; and we offer, should you choose to entrust him to us, to see that he is thoroughly schooled, without expense to you." My poor but proud, pa...

THE VALLEY OF THE AMAZON. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

THE VALLEY OF THE AMAZON. THE valley of the Amazon is no valley to the eye: its bounds are far too distant to be visible at any point in more than one direc- tion, if at all, and its slopes are altogether inappreciable by the senses. Even the cur- rent of its waters is imperceptible, and some   times locally reversed; so that it presents to the voyager no other appearance than that   of an inland sea, with a long, low, distant   shore. On either side the tributaries have a   a similar appearance; they are themselves so enormous that the eye cannot span their breadth; for example, there are four rivers   descending from the Guianas on the north,   east of the Rio Negro, hardly noticed on our common maps by name, yet of a wonderful size, one of them being no less than thirty   miles wide at the mouth. Not to speak of   the great affluents, the Xingu presents at its   ju...

SKETCHES OF JAPANESE MANNERS AND CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

;iSKETOHES OF. JAPANESE dMAiNERS AND CUSTOMS." (From the Pall )Mall Gazette.) THE speciality of this wbrk is the native drawings with which it is copiously embel lished. The text is explanatory of the illustrations rather than the illustrations of the text. At the same time, it is modestly and carefully written, and presents within a small space a great deal of information about the people of Japan. The illustrations are unique; and, though they do not denote a very advanced stage of art, are nevertheless declared by Mr. Silver to be faithful pictures of what they profess to represent, while we ourselves can vouch that they exhibit a great deal of broad humour. Following the method of Mr. Pickwick's note-book, we may observe that, as far as we can gather from this. volume, the chief "' productions of Japan appear to be bonzes, firenien, daimios, political suicides, wrestlers, public singers, ]oni is, tea-houses, and naked women; . A bonze is -a priest, and as the SJapanese :are a ve...

The Independent. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th, 1867. CIRCUMSTANCES have delayed our earlier notice of Mr GARRETT'S intended motion in the Assembly relative to the repeal of the Newspaper Postages Act. It was to be ex-   pected that such a notice would become a signal to the Press for a general expression   of opinion on the subject.That expectation has been realized. The Press has spoken, and its voice has been in unanimous appro- bation of the motion. It may be objected that motives of the strongest personal and interested character actuate the Press of New South Wales in this expression of its views on the question. That may be so; but, is it be, it is simply because its interests hap- pen to be so closely associated with those of the classes who are oppressed by the tax in question, that they are inseparable. But putting aside all personal motives; putting aside the fact that the honourable gentleman who has first moved in the matter is himself connected with the Press; and ...

Local and District News BRAIDWOOD SMALL DEBTS COURT. — The usual monthly sittings of this court were held on yester- day. The presiding magistrate was: J. W. Bunn, Esq. The list was very brief and soon got through. None of the cases were of any public interest, being in most cases simply claims for ordinary debt.   APPOINTMENT OF BAILIFF. — Before the rising of the Small Debts Court on Tuesday, it was notified   that the bailiff (Mr Barclay) had tendered his resig-   nation, and application was made for the appointment by Mr J. S. Carter. The presiding magistrate re-   fused to take upon him the responsibility of the ap- pointment, but suggested that the application should be made to the full bench. But to prevent inconve- nience to the public from the vacancy of the office Mr Carter was temporarily appointed to the office   until Thursday, the next day of petty sessions.   DEATH IN THE HOSPITAL. — An aged...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

EMU CREEK DIGGINGS. - This gold field is fast assuming a large development, and promises to be not only permanent, but equal in size to any yet opened up in this colony. The alluvial deposits have been as yet limited, but the Seven-mile Rush is ex- tending its proportions so rapidly that an increase of population may soon be expected. There is not an idle man on the field. Any person who is acquainted with the geological formation of the Burrangong gold-field will readily perceive the similarity that exists between it and this gold-field. the auriferous deposits are evenly distributed, none being rich and patchy like the Lachlan, in "pile holes" or "jew-   ellers shops," but just sufficient to pay men well for their labour, and give them a start to buy a farm and settle down cosily. It is these moderate diggings that prove so profitable for business - as miners, when making a pile, are as a rule steady and saving, and when they work their claim out, leave the scene of t...

NEW SOUTH WALES AT THE PARIS EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

NEW SOUTH WALES AT THE PARIS EXHIBITION. (From the Argus' special correspondent.) Now let us cross into the machinery gallery,   and see where New South Wales has estab- lished herself, self-dependent and self- reliant, although it must be owned that her natural history - her stuffed birds, and her gold-look a little out of place amongst the locomotives and lighthouses which over- shadow her. Never mind, New South Wales is quite able to hold her own, and has got a gold medal for her gold, which she thoroughly deserves. the latter com- prises about thrity specimens of native gold, from the various auriferous districts in which alluvial diggings are systematically carried on, in addition to some bars of standard   gold, altogether weighing about one thous- and two hundred ounces. There is also a further case of specimens of gold in quartz, sent from the Sydney mint, the value of the gold being calculated at £3 17s. 10d. the ounce standard. A more practically ...

DAIRY PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

DAIRY PRODUCE.. (.From the Austratasian?)i THE supplying of milk tii large towns is oc cupying the attention of influential bodies of men in Europe, and although the results of their investigations are not yet made public, enough has transpired to convince us that it is possible to render large towns far more independent of city dairies for a supply of the pure fluid than heretofore. In Eng land we see- that the railway authorities encourage this branch of traffic as much as they can, and in order to meet the wishes of country producers have converted a number of old second-class carriages into milk-vans, and reduced the charges; but the managers found a difficulty in inducing the milk dealers to use a uniform sized can, as in France. It appears that the French cans are much better adapted for the purpose than those used in England. The English cans hold eighteen imperial gallons, while the French cans are not more than.half this size, and therefore much more easily handled in loadi...

BRUTAL ASSAULT.-A married woman named Margaret Gibson was conveyed by the police to the Sydney Infirmary, yesterday with five wounds in- flicted by some blunt, cutting instrument, in various parts of her body. She resided with her husband in Queen-street, Chippendale. The hus- band inflicted the wounds, and gave himself up to the police. He is at present under remand, as the woman is in a very dangerous state.-Empire. STRANGE FREAK.-A most formidable bushranger named Thomas Tancred, was arrested by the Pen- rith police on Monday, and brought to Sydney on Tuesday night. He appeared before Captain Scott yesterday. His age is eight years, and he weighs about 56bs.; height, 3 feet 4 inches. This meek looking child; a few days ago, stole a horse out of a paddock at Redfern. He took it home, and there got his father's saddle. The manner in which he put the saddle on was in this way :-" I got a chair and put the saddle on, and then I buekled the girths and got on." Away he went, with three...

Original Poetry. SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

Original Poetry. SEPTEMBER.     BLEAK winter's sway hath passed away, And Spring hath come once more, With buds and blooms, and choice perfumes The woods to scatter o'er ;       And the wild-birds' trilling with music is filling The glens and gullies deep,   Where the trailing vine round young shrubs doth twine, And o'er fern-decked boulders creep. The blue smoke whirls in graceful curls , O'er the red-gum's leafy dome,   And the drooping leaves a canopy weave   O'er the settler's rustic home.   Gleaming white in the Spring-sun's light Loom its lime-washed wooden walls,   And the chequered beam, like a golden stream,   On the dusky bark roof falls. Waving green, the young wheat is seen   In the log-fenced field close by -- The tiny, spears of its ripening ears Foretelling hopefully. And the yeoman stands on the green headlands, H...
