Original Poetry. THE DEBASED. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

THE DEBASED. The last time I met thee                               Our friendship was o'er; Deep care then beset me;     I loved thee no more.     Falsehood and slander came, Thy honour to stain, In my ears rang thy name, Frivolous and vain. Blighted and tarnished,   I think on thee now, Defiled and varnished,   With lustreless brow. Smiling and mercenary,   Callous, sad, cold, Caring not---live or die-- Bartered for gold.   Living for lucre ! vile. ,     False, base, and untrue,     (Meretritious thy smile)     Cold hearted are you. Husband neglected ! Home   Cold, cheerless, and drear ! &n...

Local and District News. BRAIDWOOD POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH. (Before J. W. Bunn, and R. Maddrell, Esqs., J.P's.) [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

Local and District News.     BRAIDWOOD POLICE COURT     THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH. (Before J. W. Bunn, and R. Maddrell, Esqs., J.P.s.) DEPLORABLE IMMORALITY.—Esther Hobbs, a child of ten years old, living at Little River, and who, during the whole of the examination, hung down her head, was brought up under the Industrial Schools Act. The whole of the evidence against the child was of the most revolting nature, and went to show that the family she was connected with was horribly debased. Her father (or rather the husband of her mother, for, as stated in evidence, the child was not born in wed- lock) was a drunkard, her mother was a drunkard and a prostitute, and the child, though of such ten- der years, was, according to the testimony of the police, a prostitute, and knew nothing of any reli- gious question put to her. These facts were elicited by sergeant Stafford, who conducted the case. Frederick Stephens, a miner, of Little Rive...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 28 September 1867

The Gold Fields. THE GOLD-FIELD AT NOBES's.--This field is not as reports would make it appear. No new discoveries have been made, and on the whole things look rather queer; consequently the appearance of the miners is anything but pleasing. During the past week about twenty have arrived on the spot from various other diggings. At this I am somewhat surprised, as our ,mining population has been so often hoaxed that one would imagine they would not run headlong to an untried field. Whoever your former corres pondents may have been, I think they would have shown better sense by leaving the matter alone, and not run off to the press with a bundle of news two thirds of which was but vain imagination. It would be better for those who have not started for this new field to look before they leap, as a month hence will be quite soon enough to entertain any idea of doing so. To those who have already done so, I can only advise them to go back to their wives and families for the present.--Gou...

THE FIJIAN MASSACRE. FURTHER PARTICULARS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

THE FIJIAN ;MASSACRE. FURTHER PARTICULARS. THE perpetrators of the crime are the c~-iefs and people of a town called Ngang adetavatu, in the Navosa district, as nearly as possible in the centre of the island, and about three or four days' journey beyond the residences of the planters upon tne Rewa river. The Navosa tribe is one 'about which little or nothing is known, it having no communication or political con nection with the tribes on the coast; nor was their isolation ever disturbed by the presence of a European until Captain Jones, V.C., H,M.B. Consul of Fiji and Toga, slept in and passed through their town about two years ago, when crossing the island from south to north, in com !pany with Mr. F. Hennings and two other gentlemen, whose names I forget, when, as it now appears, they only escaped an. attack by leaving the town at break of day, and getting beyond the boundaries of the tribe before the arrival of those who had to assist in the plot. In the annual district meeting o...

RAILWAY EXTENSION. IMPORTANT DEPUTATION TO THE CHIEF SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

RAII WAY EXTENSION.; IMPORTANT DEPUTATION TO THE CHIEF ;· : .SECRETARY. . (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) THE. subject of railway extension to the north-east and western portions of the colony of Victoria res pectively. has for some time been agitated in the dis tricts more especially interested, not only as to the actual benefits likely to be derived locally by opening up a communication with markets and the sea-board, and thus encouraging agriculture and the develope ment of the resources generally, but in a national point of view, in effecting a practical federation of bhe sister colonies by connecting them by railway communication. Railway extension leagues have been formed in the north-east and western districts respectively and their energetic action has resulted in a very large, both numerically and in importance, conjoint deputation to the. Chief Secretary, as the representative of the Government, to lay the subject before him in its various bearings and to procure such pr...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

VICTORIA. THE Ballarat Evening Post says:-On Tuesday afternoon, a man named Morton, the occupier of a piece of ground under the 42nd section of the Amending Land Act, near Burrumbeet, committed suicide, having prefaced the same by an attempt at a double murder. Morton, having become jealous of his wife, left her, and did not make his appearance again in the vicinity for about six or seven months in fact, until about the date of the tragedy. On his return he had evidently prepared himself for an act of revenge, having provided himself with two single barrelled pistols (both loaded) to complete his pur pose. He first used some threatening language towards his wife, subsequently assaulting her in a very violent manner. The woman, since the depar ture of her husband, has been living with a man named Mitchell, and on being thus threatened got out a warrant for her husband's apprehension. Mounted-constable Menagh was intrusted with the warrant for arrest, and proceeding to Morton's house ...

SNAKE POISON AND UNDERWOOD'S ANTIDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

SNAKE POISON AND UNDERWOOD'S ANTIDOTE. (From the Bathurst Times.) IT is an extraordinary thing in a country like this, where so many lives are lost every year through snake-bites, that so little attention should have been paid to the anti dote that Underwood discovered,--the secret of which he could not find a purchaser for, and which there is reason to fear died with him. It is not to be wondered at that an illiterate man, of low habits, and addicted to drink, should fail to attract attention from scientific men, and that his repeated assertions of the efficacy of his antidote should be looked upon as impudent char latanism; but it is strange, with the evidence of many facts before them, proving beyond doubt that the decoction, really possessed the miraculous power which was claimed for it, that medical men should be still unstimu lated to inquiry, and that no attempt should be made to affirm or disprove the worth of the discovery. It is really impossible to estimate the monetary v...

SCENES IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

SCENES `IN PARLIAMENT. i~Xi5 2'' -From Ite Evoening News. QNWednesday evening, and yesterday mnrn ing,. in the Legislative Assembly, a series of disgraceful scenes occurred, of so flagrant a character as to 'afford a stranger full justifica . tion for the belief that the colony is unfit tor representative Government. The House having :gone into committee, Mr. Martin pro posed his resolution, to the effect that it was expedient to raise a loan of three millions for railway p irposes. Mr. Robertson had pre viously given notice -of his intention to move an-:amendment, to the effect that the sum raised should be one million only, and that it should be applied' to the com >letion of the' existing lines. It was generally believed that there would be a majority for this amend ment, a conjecture extremely probable, con sidering the interests 'involved; and as such an event would have been a Ministerial de feat the result was looked forward to with much interest. The attendance of members...

LITERARY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

, LITERARY GOS0SIP. THE Society of Arts have this year awarded 3 the Albert Gold Medal to W. Fothergill 1 Cooke and Professor Charles Wheatstone, i F.R.S., " for their joint labours in the intro duction of the electric telegraph." The medal has been struck in duplicate, and a copy will ' be presented to each. It is understood that Mr. Maclise is to receive additional payment for his work in the Royal Gallery, Westminster, as proposed I by the report of the parliamentary com mittee. At the annual meeting of the members of the London library the formalities of the meeting were relieved by a passage in a speech made by Earl Stanhope. Referring to the state of literature in Italy and the freedom of the press in Rome, his lordship remarked that prohibitory regulations often defeat one another. When at Rome, he had observed that Lord Macaulay's History of England was in the Index, while Tauchnitz's Editions of English Authors were all (in. eluding Macaulay) admitted. The large cumbrous vo...

ARALUEN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Monday. THE Araluen sub-committee of the Braidwood hos- pital-Messrs Mullens, Hogan, Kingsland, Blatch- ford, and Maher--with a party from Braidwood, have been canvassing the Valley for subscriptions for the hospital, and am happy to say that a handsome sum has been added to the funds through their energetic and praiseworthy means. I have just heard that there is a movement on foot to start a co-operative store in Braidwood. A draft of the prospectus I have seen. The shares are £1 each : no person to take more than ten shares ; and as soon as 500 shares are applied for a meeting of the shareholders will be called to elect officers to arry on the business.

QUEANBEYAN. "AGE" Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

QUEANBEYAN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] "AGE" Office, Monday. A SERIOUS accident occurred here on Wednesday last to Alfred Sindel, a child four years of age (son of Mr. Robert Sindel, storekeeper, in this town) which terminated fatally on Friday night about mid- night. From the evidence elicited at the inquest held on Saturday by the coroner, Dr. Morton, it ap- pears the little boy was in the kitchen at his father's residence, about 4 o'clock p.m., on the day above named, picking a bone that had been given to him. A boiler containing water that meat had been boiled in some ten or twelve minutes before was placed in a corner near the fire place by the servant after taking the meat out, and carelessly forgetting to put the cover on. Mrs. Sindel came into the kitchen before the accident, and was engaged doing some- thing at the table; the servant was fetching in some wood to the fire. The little boy seeing her ran backwards to get out of the way, not looking where he was going, when he c...

THE TICSBORNE BARONETCY. (From the ."aw Times.J DURING the past week the quiet town of Alresford -has been in rather an excited state, owing to the arrival of the claimant to the Tichborne baronetcy on Saturday, the 30th ult. During the. two following days, Mr. Adams, solicitor, and a staff of clerks, were busily engaged in drawing up a number of affidavits, nearly forty in number, in support of a motion for injunction and the appointment .of a receiver, which was argued in Vice-Chan cellor Wood's court on Thursday last. The bills filed in the court of chancery are lengthy documents, one-Sir Roger Doughty Tich borne, Bart., plaintiff, and Sir Pyers Mostyn and seven others defendants-occupying eighty-nine pages of foolscap; the recital of facts and of various other indentures and deeds affecting this valuable inheritance occupying nearly one-half of the bill. The other bill-Sir Roger Chas. Doughty Tich borne, Bart., plaintiff, and the Hon. Teresa Mary Josephine Doughty Tichborne, wid...

THE EARLY YEARS OF THE PRINCE CONSORT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

THE EARLY YEARS OF THE PRINCE CONSORT. WE take the following review of Queen Victoria's book from the Express, London evening paper, of 26th July : This morning was issued the volume which has been for some time announced, entitled The Early Years of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort.* The work was originally compiled under the Queen's direc tion, solely for private circulation among the members of her own family, or such other persons as, from the relations in which they had stood to her Majesty or to the Prince Consort himself, would naturally be interested in the story of his early days. The present volume is prepared under the super intendence alluded to, by Lieutenant-Gene ral the Hon. C. Grey; but others which are to follow are to be edited by Mr. Theodore Martin. The translation of the Prince's letters are, with a few merely verbal correc tions, by Princess;Helena. The possibility of a marriage between the Queen and the Prince was, it seems, fondly looked forward to by th...

A ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

A ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. THIS curious story of real life has been com municated to the Queensland Guardian: We" have recently been made acquainted with one of those romantic circumstances which throw in the shade the most thrilling inventions of the sensation novelist, and give fresh force to the trite remark, that nothing is so strange as real life. It appears that, some years since, the son and heir of a Scotch baronet of ancient lineage, owning one of the oldest and finest castles in the county in which he resides, committed some youthful indiscretion, and in order to avoid the consequences forsook his home and emigrated to Queensland, being then about sixteen years of age. For some years he travelled through the northern portions of the colony, now a hutkeeper, and then a digger; after undergoing the usual ups and downs of the bush, he finally obtained a situation as a bullock-driver in one of the cedar districts. He was now grown into a fine handsome fellow, standing six feet fo...

Local and District News. BRAIDWOOD SMALL DEBTS COURT. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1. (Before Jas. Larmer, Esq., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 2 October 1867

BRAIDWOOD SMALL DEBTS COURT.   --- TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1. (Before Jas. Larmer, Esq., J.P.) THERE were only nine cases on the cause list, two of which had been previously settled out of Court. Dr. Redhead was plaintiff in four of the remain-   ing cases, in which Tobin, Bell, Cimmage, and Ship ley were the defendants,--none of whom appeared,   while the plaintiff himself sent a telegram from Araluen, stating that it was impossible for him to be   present to conduct his cases, owing to the demand upon his attention in the Valley by the prevalence of sickness there. In the case of Smith v. Hayes, no summons had been served. A verdict for plaintiff was given in the case of Carr v -Holder.- The amount sued for was £8 8s. 1d., for goods sold and delivered. Plaintiff admitting the payment of an instalment of 16s:, the verdict was for the balance, viz., £2 12s. Id. The remaining case, Summers v. Doyle, was ad-     jo...
