THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. (From the Goulburn Herald) THE Governor's speech on the opening of parliament has been described in our tele- gram as very meagre; and doubtless: it is so. But we are not so much disposed as some people are to find fault with this quality. When, a speech promises too much, the performance at the end of the session is very apt to exhibit a wonderfully small result; and when details are attempted to be given, much has to be modified. For this and other reasons it has come to be &nbsp; pretty generally considered that the less said in royal speeches the better. Whether or not the speech was given to men in general to conceal their thoughts, it seems to be agreed that Governors' speeches in New South Wales are not very likely to foretell ministers' acts. But while we do not, as some do, com- plain of what is omitted, we do complain of what is said. We are not surprised, as those who remember recent articles that have appeared in this paper will know, that ...
FLOODS: THEIR CAUSES, USES, AND REMEDIES. To the Editor of the S. M. Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
FLOODS: THEIR CAUSES, USES, AD REMEDIES. To the Ecditor of the S. M.. Herald. . Sr,-After perusal of your leading article of the 25th June, it.has occirred 'to' me that a :few remarks on the above subject may not be out of-place or unacceptable., The cause of floods is "not merely in the weight of rain that falls, but the foul and? contracted state of the. channels which re ceive that rain. If a body of water, moving with a velocity, of ten miles an: hour and filling the whole naturalichannel of an aver age depth of ten feet, is sudderily me't by a` sand-bank stretching across its path with an average depth of four feet, what can it do but rise proportionally ? Therefore, rivers should be dredged to a depth that would admit of.the. passage, at all times, of flood waters, without topping the banks. The banks should. be protected by 'a levee or false bank on the top, and the beach at foot protected from 'being undermined, 'a4 work neither difficult nor expensive. In fact, the expensiv...
DISASTROUS FLOOD AT BURRANDONG.—LOSS OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
DISASTROUS FLOOD AT BURRANDONG.- LOSS OF LIFE (From the Bathurst Times.) MR. W.H. SUTTOR has handed us , the following letter, written by his son, Mr. F. B. Suttor, from Burrandong, dated 23rd June. The tale it tells adds another appalling incident in the many gloomy disasters which have attended the recent inundations, and the appeal it makes to benevolence, we are sure, will not be addressed in vain. Mr. Suttor says: I am writing a few lines, hoping that the river will be low enough in the morning for the boats to work, so that I may send this to the post. We had a most disastrous flood, though we have not lost much-a hut and some fencing being all. The water was in some of the outbuildings, but, fortu- nately, did not reach the house. Three feet more would have turned us out. We had everything ready to move, and remained up all Friday night, and a most anxious night it was. The river, how- ever, began to fall about daylight. I have now to tell you of a most heartrending calamity....
CIRCULATION OF THE BLOOD IN THE ARMS AND LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
CIRCULATION -.:F THE . BLOOD IN 'THE ARMS AND LEGS. :B F. WuLsoK, M.D. All disease is the result of unbalanced blood. circulation. So .long as the blood is maintained in equal distribution over all parts of the body, no serious condition of ill-health can arise. Therefore I bring forward these propositions for the con siderations of the reader. 1. In order to have good healthethere must be a healthy distribution odf :the. body. , 2. The circulation cannot be maintain ed unless the nervous system has oppor tunity for recuperiition under rest, and the extremities be covered as thickly as other parts of the body, so as to maintain an equal warmth by preserving the vital. heat that is distributed to, and generated in these parts. 3. Defective nutrition in the arms and legs arising from defective blood-circula tion through them, is an immediate cause of the impairment of the nutritive organs, viz,; the stomach and bowels, and of ir ritation of the organic nervous certres and the impairme...

HoLLowAY's PILLs.-Premonition-The opinion gains ground that disease is a. diminution of vi tality and there-is little doubt that the powers of life are principally depressed by impurities of the sys tem. This depravity can be corrected by taking a course, or an occasional dose, of Holloway's fa mous purifying pills, which expel all morbid matter from the circulation, and thoroughly cleanse and invigorate the glar.ds, 'viscera, and brain. Through tshi wholesome influence, Holloway's medicine casts out the seeds of all fevers which in sultry weather prove so formidable to health, and in a vast majority of- cases destroy life itself. Forewarned should be forearmned-a position easily attained by taking these excellent pills when lasitude, headache, or dejection distress us. aMr Robertson has:called the attention of. the gdvy enment to :the fact, that seed .wheat &c., sown im miediately after the subsidence of the flood 'of waters. require'no ploughing, only harrowing. It must be...
GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
GUNDAROO. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT] &nbsp; THE Rev. John Gibson of Yass is expected to de- liver a lecture in the Presbyterian church Gundaroo, on Wednesday evening, the 17th instant, at six o'clock: Subject, "Jamaica-its past and present." After the lecture a collection will be made the pro- ceeds to be devoted to the " Floods relief fund." I understand that Mr Gibson has consented to hold morning and afternoon services at Gundaroo every second sabbath in the month, to commence the second Sunday in August. This is a good arrangement for the Presbyterians here, for they have been with- out a pastor lately to dispense the maans of grace. It is bad to have a church and no minister, a people and no preacher, but I am glad to learn this state of things will now be remedied. THE Odd Fellows here intend to celebrate their seventh anniversary this year with a ball and sup- per at the Royal Hotel, on the 9th instant. I un- der stand they are going to walk in procession from the lodge r...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. POLICE COURT.-There were no police cases dur- ing the past week. The only magisterial business was that of Thomas Royal, of Three Mile Creek, asking for the removal. of his license to Queanbeyan, granted; and the hearing of some adjourned small debt cases. ROMAN CATHOLIC.-It is rumoured that the Rev. P. White, of Queanbeyan, is about to have the dio- &nbsp; cese. QUEEN'S BRIDGE, QUEANBEYAN.-After many unavoidable delays the repairing of the Queen's Bridge has commenced. The bridge is closed, and is likely to continue so for about three weeks (a pathway remaining for foot passengers only.) Teams &c. will cross at the old ford below the bridge, the thoroughfare being through Morrisett street. THE WEATHER.-Since the late rains the weather has been extremely cold. Between two and three o'clock on Monday morning snow fell but was fol- lowed immediately by rain, and by daylight most of the snow had disappeared; severe frosts have suc- &nbsp; cee...
TO THE BENCH OF MAGISTRATES. Per favour of the Age. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
TO THE BENCH OF MAGISTRATES. Per favour of the Age. GENTLEMEN,-As one of the business men of this town and to some extent interested, may I ask the reason why our Small Debts Court is not held more frequently than it is ? The fourth sec. of the Act 10 Vic., No- 10, provides " That all courts of Petty " Sessions now established, or that may hereafter be " established in the said territory, shall, within their " respective districts, have power and authority to " hear and determine in a summary way,[and accord " ing to equity and good conscience all actions &c. " not exceeding £10." Why then, gentlemen, should you make rules prohibiting your dealing with petty debts for a space of two months at a stretch?. In almost every town in the south, Courts of Requests are held once or twice a month, and I think that while Queanbeyan is limited to six in the year, men in trade must often suffer through unprin- cipled debtors bolting from the place with the man- tle of protection thrown ...
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Thursday evening. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] SYDNEY. Thursday evening. The gold escorts to day have brought down three thousand ounces. &nbsp; Wool markets unaltered. Well fleeced skins sold well. Good fleece eighteen pencs; &nbsp; greasy, from sixpence to sixpence three- farthings. Advices from Rockhampton give a favou- rable account of the goldfields. The last steamer brought down a thousand ounces. The legislative assembly yesternight ap- proved of the postal conference arrange- ments without a division. Mr Parkes proved beyond a doubt that Sydney should be the terminus of the three mail routes. The financial statement is promised early in September.
A FEMALE PHYSICIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
A FEMALE ,PHYSICIAN. Miss GARRETT, the female physician who is conquering London prejudice, is described as a golden-haired young lady, who dresses with a taste which few young ladies exercise. An American lady, who recently met her at an evening party in London, remarked that it was curious to hear this girlish little crea ture in white silk talk of her practice, her office, and the daily work she did. Very simply and naturally she spoke of these things, expressing hearty love for her work, confidence in its success, and satisfaction in her daily increasing power to help and com fort. She will be likely to conquer those who make all manner of fun of medical ladies-who wonder how they behave when calling on a patient; and declare it their belief that it will be something after the following fashion: " Well, my dear, andl how are you to day ?" " No better, thank you doctor I feel so dreadfully depressed!" "Depressed ! . Well, we'll soon put that alright with a new bonnet. &nb...
CORRESPONDENCE. QUEANBEYAN JUSTICE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 July 1867
CORRESPONDENCE. QUEANBEYAN JUSTICE. &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor. Sir, Availing myself of that organ which has at times guided the destiny of nations and hurled mon archs from their thrones (the press), I venture to bring under notice a case of the greatest hardship that possibly could take place, or be perpetrated by any class of officials in the colony, with a hope that full inquiry will be made and a stop put to a repeti tion of the like in future. The case I allude to is this--a respectable and in dustrious man named Roach residing at Jingera, in the neighbourhood of Wild Cattle Flat, lost some cattle on Friday last. He felt sure where they had gone to, and had good grounds for suspecting that one or two head were killed at a certain hut on that night. Early on Saturday morning he started to Molonglo to a magistrate to procure a search war rant, The gentleman to whom Roach applied heard the whole of his staement, and then excused himself by saying he had no forms,...
FEARFUL SCENE IN A CORNISH MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
FEARFUL SCENE IN A CORNISH MINE. A sAD accident occurred in North Levant `Mine, St Just, on Monday. Two miners were stopping in the seventy-fathom level, going east, and knew that they approached part of an adjacent mine, Wheal Maitland, -which had not been worked for forty years. They did not, however, anticipate danger. The two miners were using hammer and picker in -soft ground, when water trickled through to them. It momentarily increased, and then all at once gushed out from a gap three feet long and nine inches wide. Thomas Oats and his son and James Nicholas ran for their lives, a distance of forty fathoms, to Wheal Game shaft, and escaped. The. stream, which must have been the outpour of the accumulated waters in some of the winzes, rushed seven or eight fathoms to a winze which led downwards to the eighty-five. East of this Henry Thomas, aged fifty-three, his son William (twenty two), and James (twenty) were at work. The father was hurried at least fifty fathoms, and found ...
MELBOURNE. Wednesday evening. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
MELBOURNE. To -Wednesday evening. Two ,steamers came into collision yester day, off Williamstown. One sank; the other was 'seriously injured. No lives lost. Mr Hargraves, the gold discoverer, 'is called before the bar of the Assembly to answer assertions made by the Age, that certain members asked for payment for voting in favour, of claims. The Great Britain arrived, fitfy-eight days out.
GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
GERMANY. All theministerial journals of Berlin speak of a plot discovered at Hanover, the source of which, they declare, has been traced to the court of King George. It relates to the formation of a royalist: legion, which would have taken the field, in the case of a war between Prussia and France, with the object of re-establishing the throne of the Guelphs., Numerous domiciliary perquisitions, followed by arrests, have taken place in Hanover, and at the house of a banker in that city the police seized on 'a sum of £6000. The Berlin correspondence, speaking of the agitation in question, says:--The government will serve that country's own interests by energetic ally putting an end to the desperate efforts of a party which does not even shrink from committing high treason.. ,. It is time that ,indulgence should give placei. to the. exclusive' consideration of. the public interest.- The ex-king will have to meditate, in his own mind, on the` question .whether he will resign himself to...
PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
Berlin letters repeat -that England is urging ,the continental powers, especially ..France and .russia, to a general disarmament. They say - We-. believe . these -representations of the'-English government are only with 'a view 'to consolidate peace, ,now that an understanding has been arrived at, by returning to the state prior to the late arma ments. -But if, on the one :hand;_the answer to this suggestion is that France is only filling up .the vacancies to restore her ?army to the real peace effective, such an application could, on the' other, be with-still less reasoni addressed to -Prussia, since' her government has notoriously made no preparations for war, and as orders have been issued to send the reserves to their" homes' earlier than 'in ordinary years. As to a propositioni which would go farther, and require, for example, the reduction of the peace footing of the armies, that proceeding would be equivalent to asking for'. the disorganisation of the 'Prussian army,' and' no...
MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
MOLONGLO. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] LIKE the-rest of the colony; Molonglo has come in for its fair share of the late rains. Molonglo river has bean higher lately than it has been for the last fourteen years. It was higher than the flood that occurred the time of the heavy snow fall in 1853, and nearly as high as the great Gundagai flood in 1852. Farming operations have been greatly impeded by the heavy rains. The settlers have not been able to plough their old ground on account of its extreme softness, and but few of them have new land cleared. There has been but very little grain sown yet, and I dont think there will be half the number of acres under cultivation this year that there was last, and as most of the small settlers have been compelled to sell their wheat at very low rates, they will not be much better off next year then they were before the drought broke up. We are well off for grass.as we have had but few severe frosts this winter. The- season is more like a dripping sp...
CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
CANADA. Advices from Ottawa, Canada West, May 9, say: -It is understood that the Queen's proclamation creating the dominion of Canada, and appointing members of the Senate will shortly be issued. The act will take effect in the first week in July, when Lord Monck will be sworn in as first viceroy or governor-general. Then will follow the appointment -ofprivy councillors, four lieutenant-governors, and tleh general organisation of the confederate and local governments. The elections will probably not take place before August or September. A telegram, through the Atlantic cable, dated New York, May 23, 6 p.m., says:-The Fenians are pre paring a new invasion of Canada. Troops are being concentrated on the fronitier.
