TO AN AUSTRALIAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

J> rxTO AN:.AUSTRALIAN RIVER. IVER, with thy silver waves, Where art thou going ? " a'Onward through the forest shades, - ,Where winds are blowing? )n thee no passing shadow falls save the bird's bright wing, Where no echo verberating makes the valleys ring; Where the light and faiiy tree Dips its g'ilden branches; Where the wand'ring summer bee Round each blossom dances. rure, unsullied are thy waters, oh thou lovely river! Like polish'd diamonds in the sun, so thy waters, 1 glitter. Onward to the spreading plains; Down some lonely valley; Till: thou seek'st the hills again, Where the sunbeams tarry. Where the emu standing, gazing with his brawny outstretched wing, Stately on thy pathless margin, like an ancient ;-river-king. Onward till the mountain high. Crowd around thy waters; Now I hear the river sigh, Here the river falters Till withi a gleaming rushing foam swift rolls the river down Down the gloomy mountain gorge with deaf'ning thund'ring sound; Where I cannot follow, th...

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (From the Australasian.).; THE KITCHEN GARDEN. - Should we be favoured with a' continuance of suitable weather late crops may still' be sown. Sow kidney-beans for succession, -and attend to' former sowings. ' Good breadths of marrow peas should be got in on "well-prepared ground. Transplant a good breadth of cab bages for summer use, also lettuces, and as long as the season is favourable a small bed of St. John's Day or Enfield cabbage may yet be sown. Follow up the planting of potatoes on all favourable opportunities, more especially on high-lying land; on rich alluvial flats near rivers, and where the land is liable to inundations, a few weeks hence' will soon be enough. We do not remember for some years a more favourable time 'for getting in seeds than the present spring has been-the ground being in such excellent condition; a little extra attention will there fore be necessary when, the young crops are fully up in thinning and in stirring the s...

PRELLER'S PATENT TANNING PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

PRELLER'S PATENT TANNING PROCESS. (From the Scientcic American.) IN sole-leather by Preller's patent the fibrous structure is entirely preserved, and in a condensed state, of great strength and solidity: comparing with oak-tanned leather by weight as thirty-four to fifty, from one hundred pounds of green hide, and showing much less thickness than the distended and weighted leather produced by ordinary pro cesses. On tearing, the latter discloses a felty structure, whereas the former shows all its fibres in their original parallel juxta position, and by experiment, resists at one fourth of an inch thickness, in constant working, more strain than the best oak tanned -three-eighths of an inch thick. The obvious practical advantages of the lessened bulk and greater flexibility need not be sug gested. Butts, it may be remarked, become available, from improved flexibility, for pur poses to which they were hitherto unsuited, and by paring them a very large even horse hide may be obtained f...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

A SELECT AUDIENCE IN THE STRANGERS' GAL- LERY.-The Brisbane Courier of September 27th says :-Considerable restrictions are at present placed on admission to the strangers' gallery in the Legis- lative Assembly. Two policemen are on guard at the doors, and an order from a member of the House must be obtained before entering. One might sup- pose that this would secure an entirely select and respectable attendance, but it unfortunately does not do so. A confiding agriculturist attended the sit- tings on Tuesday last, anxious to know how the bu- siness of the country was carried on, and received a remarkable illustration of what has often been done on a larger scale, inside the bar, by having his pocket picked of from ten to fifteen shillings. When. he discovered the loss he seemed surprised. TARAGO.-On Tuesday, the 24th September, the inhabitants of Tarago and its neighbourhood pre- sented the Rev P.

IMPRESSIONS OF JAPAN.—No. III. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

IMPRES-IONS OF JAPAN.-No. III. BY AN AUSTRALIAN COLONIST. - (From the Australasian.) BF ORE giving ýanaccount of mly 'trip to Yedo, a few-words must be said about the ways and manners of polite society at Yoko hama. I shall be brief, and can only hope to be not-like the unfortunate teacher we read about-at the same time tedious. At the British minister's residence-I had the honour of dining with three Japanese gentlemen of high official rank (two commissioners of foreign affairs and one a member of the second council of =the empire). They were severally accompanied by interpreters, -which for me was fortunate, as my conversation in the native tongue is as yet not remarkable for :fluency and correctne-s. There was an easy self-possession about these people, with much quickness of observation; but a comical awk wardness in their endeavours to fall in with the usages of Europeans. Though Buddhists they partook of all flesh-meat at the table; tasted of every dish, either with inquiring....

ARALUEN. POLICE COURT.—WEDNESDAY. (Before Henry Burne, Esq., P.M.) [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

ARALUEN. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] POLICE COURT.—WEDNESDAY. (Before Henry Burne, Esq., P.M.) CHILD DESERTION. — Thomas Lestor was summoned by Caroline Sturgent to show cause why he should not contribute to the support of her child. Case dis- missed. SETTLING A LONG-STANDING ACCOUNT. — Eliza Basil appeared, to answer to a summons issued against her by Mary Terrara for an assault. It transpired in evidence that complainant and de- fendant were neighbours, but not on neighbourly terms, neither had they been for some time past, and the other day, it came to an issue by defendant en- forcing the usual feminine pugilistic argument — pulling complainant by the "hair of the head" and going in at her "tooth and nail." The Police Magistrate thought it rather disgraced the fair sex, advised them to live farther apart, and as a kind of impetus gave defendant to understand she would have to pay a fine of 20s. and all costs, which amounted to £2 19s. 8d. A FRIENDLY FIGHT. — Constable John Ryan su...

The Independent. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

-SATUR'DAY, OCTOBER 5th, 1867. HE letting out of the road repairs by con ,,,tract, in extensive lengths, after the fashion reported by our, Queanbeyan correspondent in last issue of this journal, is an innovation that cannot be passed over in silence, espe cially as the works undertaken are of a somewhat important character. The sum placed upon the Estimates for the repairs of the road from Boro to Cooma is sufficient, with judicious expenditure, to make this highway tolerably good. Mr. Commissioner ,BENNETT, whose official tour of road in - spection in the Southern districts has been. a noticed in these -columns, tappears to. have .gone over the main road from Monaro to 'Loo, discovered its .defect;sand then, with out the slightest public intimation of his. intention, unhesitatingly accepted the offer of the first available person, without ques :,tioning their fitness, or stopping to ask whether any body else could be found to' do the task as well or better than they, to exe cute, ...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

NEW DIGGINGS ON THE CLYDE' RIVER. - A party of three men came to Nelligen a few days ago by a small boat, from an apparently, rich gully dis- covered by them, eighteen miles from Nelligen twelve miles by water and six from the river, good dray road. They found a fine nugget of four ounces   at once, and in three days got sixteen ounces of fine nuggety gold, now in Mr. Flavelle's window, George street. The gully is reported to be 1½ mile long, and gold found five feet from the surface, dry dig- ging. When they came to Nelligen for provisions they left twenty men on the ground, all doing well. This fine sample of gold has arrived per Kembla, Captain Mailler, and is sent by Mr Guy, Store keeper, of Nelligen, who purchased it from the three men, who intend going back immediately. -S. M.

WEDNEsDAY.-Te Parliamenltary iaffairs of last week. were not supplemented yesterday, by. Any re criminaitons of ill `feeling; but on the other: hand Mr Martin promised Mr. Samuels that he would support a Bill introduced by ary hon. member for tile pre vention of imprisonment such as that of the Wilton Brothers, of Bathurot, who faire at-presentl kept in jail at the pleasure of a Mr. Webb, the successful:.plain tiff in the late libel case. Some time since we' Sydney folks -were agitating a trip of exploration to New Guinea, and by a eprusnll of the Victoriun journals, I see that some enterprising Ballarattians are contemplating a trip to -ew Guinea,, and an appropriation of the riches of that remarkable island. ' No doubt the temptation is great to become monarchs;of, a country, as large as the British Isles, but the dilficulty of" annexation" will probably prove great in proportion to the .size of tlie country, and the number and character of its; inhabitants.

QUEANBEYAN. "AGE" Office, Thursday morning. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

QUEANBEYAN.   [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] "AGE" Office, Thursday morning. AMONGST interested individuals there has been con- siderable anxiety felt here for some days past to know who were to be the successful tenderers for the new mail contracts in this neighbourhood Impatient of the receipt of the intelligence in the ordinary way, the telegraph was employed to convey the news as soon as it was divulged at head quarters. The result was known here yesterday, and R. Elliott, who for the past three years has performed the Boro-Cooma contract, not without complaint, was declared to be the successful tenderer for that line. Two other parties at least had competed with him John O'Neill and William Roohan; the former at £450, the latter at £400 per annum. Mr. Elliott must therefore have taken the work at a very low figure. Probably he looks forward to the advent   of the iron horse to Goulburn, as a means of in- creasing the passenger and parcel traffic, and thus m...

A CHANCERY LUNATIC. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

A CHANCERY LUNATIC. (Fromd the Saturday Review.) THE admirers of Mr. Reade's novels are familiar with the opinion which be holds, that the law of lunacy is systematically made an instrument of oppression and wrong. Indeed it would appear that this opinion is not held by Mr. Reade exclusively. There is, or was, in existence a Lunatics' Protection Society, which was got up by a gentleman who had been confined, as he considered wrongfully, in an asylum. Cases continually occur in which it is alleged, not only by lunatics but by some of their friends, that restraint is cruel and un necessary. Evidence is usually forthcoming in such cases that the person so restrained is, in the opinion of the deponents, rational and inoffensive; and, in fact, a person whom it would be rather pleasant than otherwise to have 'for an inmate of one's house. Such evidence may, at the time it is given, be diffi cult to'exphin or contradict; but it has hap pened before now that lunatics have become convinced o...

PRINCE ALFRED'S VISIT. PREPARATIONS AT MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 5 October 1867

PRINCE ALFRED'S VISIT.   PREPARATIONS AT MELBOURNE. From the Age.     THE preparations for the reception of the Duke of Edinburgh are now assuming a business shape. The Commission entrusted   with the settlement of the details are now in progress and will no doubt keep at work from day to day till the organisation is complete, or until the arrival of the Galatea,   an event the probable date of which is in- volved in considerable doubt, for the pro- gramme we published some time ago on the authority of a London journal, did not bear the stamp of official authority. The des- patches to the Governors of the several   colonies announcing the probability of his   Royal Highness visiting them, afford no   clue whatever the dates of his arrival or   departure. The inference is that either no such dates has been determined on, or that a very large discretion is allowed to the Duke himsel...

Local and District News     BRAIDWOODI. POLICE COURT. THURSDAY. (Before J. W. Bunn, W. J. Bennison, and J. H. Griffin, Esqs., J.P's.) WAGES--Margaret McGrath summoned her em ployer, Frederick Waters, for the sum of 30s., wages due to her. The defendant's wife, being the only person that was able to state the agreement between the parties, not being present, a verdict in favour of the complainant was given for, the full amount claimed. CASE OF APPEAL.-Jennings and party v. Thomas and party.-Mr. Fell appeared for the complainants, Mr. Scarvell for the defendants. This was a case of appeal against the decision of the Araluen Police Magistrate and two assessors. The facts are simply these-Jennings and party think themselves entitled to a third water right in Bell's Creek, which was taken out some three years-ago by one Simpson, and which they were in possession of up to the time of the decision against them by the Araluen Police Magistrate, and the bone of cont...

ROADS. .To THE EDITOR OF' T:HE INDPENDENT. SIR,--Whilst the Hon. .the Premier is so much: engaged with the proposed scheme of a small. loan of only £3,000,000 for railway extension, the question of the condition, of the: public roads seems to be laid. aside for an iindefinite period, as, usual. Why, I would ask, .jre not .the public .roads of our colouy placed under a survey, as to their exact condition, the bad places separated from the good (if any portions are to be found under the latter denomina tion), and upon a repo t, in extenso, of those surveys being made, a sufficient: sum should be allowed for the repairs, independent of salaries to be paid to overseers and'superin tendents, &e. ? At present, if I understand the matter, upon many of these public roads only 71. per mile has ben allowed, and out of that, salaries to be pai '. Now, sir, seeing that so little is done upon our roads, what has become of the money ? Gone, of course, and the fault of too many being class...
