Latest from Taranaki. ANOTHER ENCOUNTER WITH THE MAORIES. Abridged from the Taranaki Herald's diary [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860

Latest from Taranaki. ANOTHER ENCOUNTER WITH THE MAORIES. Abridged from the Taranaki Herald's diary     Saturday, August 18.--Several houses in   rear of the town are in flames this evening. It is reported that two rebels were wounded,   or killed, by lieutenant Bent's party, when   the sentinel was attacked at Fort Niger. A hat and a mat were picked up near the fort. The rebel party were on Paynters, Ham- blyn's, and Barriball's farms this afternoon destroying pigs, &c. Sunday.--There is no doubt that Waka and about 12 of his people have gone over to the enemy, and proceeded to Waitara. It is needless to add that they have taken with them the arms and ammunition supplied by the Government. 203 of the 65th regiment, 40 of the 40th regiment, and a body of militia and volunteers, marched this morning to the camp at Waireka, and escorted stores and provisions. Monday.--From an early hour this morn-   ...

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS.           It may to some appear like vanity in me to   write what I now do, but I should not give my life truly if I omitted it. When filling             a car of manure at the dung hill, I never stopped work because my side of the cart might be heaped up before the other side, at which was another man, but I pushed over what I had heaped up to help him, as doubt- less he did to help me when I was last and       when he was first. When I have filled my     column or columns of a newspaper or sheet of a magazine, with the literature for which I was to be paid, I have never stopped if the   subject required more elucidation, or the pa-     per or magazine more matter, because there   &n...

OUT DOOR SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860

OUT DOOR SPORTS. It will be seen by reference to our advertising columns, that this present session is not likely to pass over, the same as last, without any races at all. But that a spring meeting is announced to take place next month. Whether the recent events connected with the great champion race at Randwick, have for a time rendered more popular this favourite   English pastime; or that the infusion of a little fresh blood into our sporting community,   has occasioned a reaction in favour of racing;     we cannot say. But whatever may be the     (?), which has tended to a more general     patronage of field sports throughout the   district, we trust that the national love and   spirit for encouraging out door amusement will not again flag; but that our forthcoming race will be well supported and properly (?). Whilst on the subject of racing, it would...

A NUGGET'S STORY. WRITTEN EXPRESSLY FOR THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860

A NUGGET'S STORY. WRITTEN EXPRESSLY FOR THE GOLDEN AGE.   It is impossible for me to dwell upon my early history; as upon this point my ideas are   decidedly chaotic. I candidly confess my ignorance, lest, like many of the philosophers and professors of the present day, I should lead people into a belief that I really knew something about it. If I were to state what little I do know, if it did not altogether con- tradict, it would at least be considerably at variance with the many theories and dogmas, upon which the learned and scientific found their opinions. When in after life I became the subject of a lecture, how I used to grin at the evident gullibility of the audience, when informed that I had lain for some thousands of years at the bottom of a volcano undergoing certain changes. That no portion of my origi- nal exterior now remained, that I had been covered with deposits of other matter and might originally have been alluvial, but be- longed not to t...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 September 1860

Odds and Ends. IT is not so much the being exempt from faults, as the having overcome them, that is an ad- vantage to us; it being with the follies of the   mind as with the weeds of a field, which, if destroyed and consumed upon the place of their birth, enrich and improve it more than if none had ever sprung there. IT is not what we earn, but what we save, that makes us rich. It is not what we eat, but what we digest, that makes us strong. It is not what we read, but what we remember, that makes us learned. All this is very sim- ple, but it is worth remembering. GOOD HUMOUR, says Johnson, may be defined a habit of being pleased; a constant and per-   ennial softness of manner, easiness of ap- proach, and serenity of disposition, like that which every man has perceived in himself when the first transports of a new felicity have subsided, and his thoughts are only kept in motion by a slow succession of soft impulses. Good humour is a state between gaiety an...

itc- h (iý4dstnd (ittd5. ` TIrE SIIREW MOUSE.--It is a.-remarkable, but well attested circumstance, that there is an annual mortality among these animals about the month of August, when great num bers of them are found deadn in roads, woods, and fields, and without any appearance of violence on their bodies. Shrews are very pugnacious, and LMr: Bell remarks that, if two are confined in a box together, a very short time elapses before the weaker of the two is killed, and devoured ; lie also gives his reasons fur supposing that shrews fall victims to the rapacity of moles. In days so distant as those of Aristotle and Agricola, the shrew was the subject of strange superstitions. As was the case with the hedgehog and other animals, to this one was attributed the most baneful properties. The ancients ascribed poisonous effects to the bite of the shrew, which, as they assert, produces tumours and ulcerations. Agricola states that the Latins called it rnusa ranents, from its injecting veno...

YASS. TnE LATE HIGHWAY ROBBERY. - The mounted patrol, and the Yass. and Ilinalong constabulary, have been again out in search of the men who had robbed Hurley the dealer, but were not fortunate enough to meet with them. We hear that the robbers separated after reaching Marcngo, one of the men who is well acquainted with this part of the coun try, and, generally speaking, a good bushman, refusing to proceed any further with his com panions. This man is known not only in this district, but at Albury, where he succeeded some time since in stealing a horse, and was chased by the Victorian police, but managed to elude them.-Yass CouriL-.

IMPUDENT HonSE Ron?EnIES.These offen ces seem so much on the increase in this dis trict that it has become necessary to warn all l a ties against leaving their horses standing outside unattended when they are cngaged anywhere upon business. Yesterday a man named Burns of Molongoly, twice attempted to ride off with a horse the property of Mr. Stephens, of the Shoalhaven River, which was standing at the Doncaster Hotel, but was prevented. At the third attempt he got clear off with it, but was apprehended by the police. He was brought up yesterday before the sitting magistrate, Mr. I. W.

F:)'- I; rom oitr own, Correspondent.) Tim weather still continues changeabl sunshine and showers. To-day it is clea cold and somewhat windy. Business, fin stale and unprofitable. The late Europe news seems to have stirred up the exubera loyalty of some of our townspeople, who a anxious to manifest their patriotism by coming riflemen; no..doubt a body of expll riflemen would be a formidable foe in the i terior of this.colony, but there is little to fe under almost any circumstance from an cnei> attempting to come inland.
