Parliamentary. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Wednesday, October 31. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 10 November 1860

---oo-00 LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. . Wednesday,: October. 31. The ;Assembly met on Wednesday,:: and after ,some formal business had been gone through,' Mr. Robertson said, -that in conse quence of having been defeated on a proviso. of the Land .Bill of great importance, his col leagues and himself had determined' to ask for six months' supplies. They had anxiously considered the course they ought to take which would be best for the country, and they had come to the conclusion that only two ways were open-to resign' their offices or to obtain from the House the means of meeting the public expenditure for a short period, and to appeal to the country. The latter course ap peared to them the best, and in order to sub mit his proposition in a definite shape, he (Mr.. Robertson) would move the adjournment of the House till the next day at three o'clock. Some, discussion ensued, and after Mr. Robertson had replied the Housie adjourned' till Thursday afternoon.

Friday, November 2. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 10 November 1860

Friday, November 2. In the Assembly the Speaker took the chair at twenty-five minutes past three. SUPrLY. - Mr. WEEKES moved that the House resolve itself into Committee of Supply, with a view to consider the resolutions stand ing in his name. In' doing so, he would at once'state that he was not wedded to the pre cise form. of the -resolutions, nor toj the- time for which it was sought to obtain supply. All that the Ministry wanted was to obtain the sanction of the House to the necessary expen-, diture of the Government, previous to making an:appeal to the country. At home, when ever the Ministry. had been defeated, and hlad expressed its Intention to appeal to the country, it had always been the practice of the -adverse majority of the House of Com mons, to offer no opposition to the Govern ment when asking for three or six months' supply, so as to enable them to take the opi nion of the constituencles in the matter. To this practice, therehad never, at all events in' modern times,...

Select Poetry. SONG OF THE PRINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 10 November 1860

SONG OF TIHE PRINTER. --- Pick and click . Go the types in the stick,   As the Printer stands at his case; His eyes glance quick, and his flngers pick The types at a rapid pace. And one by one as theletters go, Words are piled up steady and slow-- Steady and slow, But still they grow;   And words of fire they soon will glow; Wonderful words, that, without a sound, Shall traverse the earth to its utmost bound Words that shall make The tyrant quake, And the bond of slaves and oppressed shall break; Words that can crumble an army's might, Or treble its strength in a righteous fight; Yet the the types they look but leaden and dumb, As he puts them in place with his finger and thumb ; But the printer smiled, And his work beguiled, By chanting a song as the letters he piled;     While pick and click Went the types in the stick, Like the world's chronometer, tick! tick ! tick !   '"Oh,where is the man with such simple tools, ...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 10 November 1860

EXTRAORDINARY DISCOVERY AT UNUMGAR, RICHMOND RIVER.-Some years since, several persons travelling from this station down the Richmond, towards Casino, disappeared mys teriously. The last case occurred about six years ago, to an elderly man, who was on his way from a station lower down the river than Unumgar. A stockman from the station which be had left called at Unumgar a few days after, and asked if he had arrived. He never did so, and no traces were ever after heard of him. Mr. Glennie, the proprietor of Unumgar, has now given us some information which will tend to throw some light on the mystery. About   two months ago a blacksmith in his employ ment was shown by a black boy a cave in the face of a perpendicular rock, situated about fifty yards from the road to Casino, and about eight- feet above the surface of the ground. On examination, there were found portions of 20 to 30 skeletons, the large bones of the arms and legs being in one place, the remains of skulls in...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. In your advertising columns of Saturday the 27th ult., appears a letter from Mr. Leopold   De Salis, of Cuppacumbalong, in reference to some matter of dispute, between himself and Mr. A. Cunningham, of Lanyon, in which letter allu- sion is made to me in the following words, to wit:   "Thus was Mr. C. compelled in gratification of   his spite, after in vain working upon the Chief constable's prudence, to fall back upon a most ab- surd charge." Now, sir, I beg most distinctly to state, that Mr Cunningham neither during the     time I was at Lanyon nor on any other occasion ever once suggested a single thing to me connected with Mr De Salis or the man Johnston, but left me entirely to myself as to the course I should pursue. What grounds Mr. De Salis had for   making the above statement are best know to him- self. I am, Sir,   Your obededient (?)   Qu...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 17 November 1860

GOULBURN. (From our-own Correspondent.) The coming elections occupy a prominent position in the conversation of the day. The right man in the right place has not yet assu med a definite shape. There has been some' talk of a requisition to J. W. Chisholm, Esq., to stand for Goulburn, provided he will pledge hitmself to support the Land Bill as brought forward by the present Ministry, in its princi pal featiires, viz., 1 free selection before survey, and deferred payments." One party states, " If you pass such a bill, you will drive capi tal from the country;" the other shrewdly asks, " Where did your capitalists make their money?" The news brought by the late English Steamer appears to place the Italian question in a perilous position. Few men know where to stop when everything they undertake goes on prosperously; and by attempting too much ruin all. Garibaldi seems to be in danger of ialling into this' error. " If he leave Venice alone till be has consolidated the rest of the Italia...
