Correspondence THE QUEANBEYAN LAND AGENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 9 November 1867

THE QUEANBEYAN LAND AGENT. TO THE EDITOR.   SIR,--Permit me to lay before the public another of the many abuses practised in the Queanbeyan land office, with the hope that justice will overtake the offending party. On the 24th of last month I came into Queanbeyan for the purpose of selecting 40 acres of land, adjoining 40 acres previously selected by me for my son John, on making the application Mr Willans told me it was the quarter-sessions day and that he could not attend to me then, that I must come the following Thursday. He also added that he thought he had no forms of application by him. I said it was strange that he could not attend to land matters on a proper land day. The agent persisted in saying I should come another day. I then told him I should leave the purchase money with Mr John Hunt in case the Murrumbidgee river should be up and get him to select the land for me. I con- trived to be in on the following Thursday, but on going to the land office Mr Willa...

LANDING OF THE PRINCE AT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 16 November 1867

LANDING OF TI?E PRItNCE AT ADELAIDE. We condense the following from the Adelaide Advertiser, of Friday, 1st No. vember.:- The long-looked for day has come at last, cand the good city of Adelaide has assumed an appearance she has never presented be -fore, and in all probability will not again exhibit for many years to come. On Wed nesday evening our country cousins poured in pretty freely; but- this morning there was a perfect invasion. The trains were crowded. The mail coaches were not only full, but over-filled-to an extent that often awoke the fears as to the strength of axle trees and power of horses; whilst the fearful looking pyramids of human beings piled on the roofs led to many a speculation as to what would be the result if a wheel were to come in centact with a stone, or if the con :tre of gravitation were in the slightest ad -ditional degree further displaced. Private ,vehicles of. every sort and shape; carts, waggons, drays, and indescribable looking traps, apparently ha...

HER MAJESTY'S SHIP GALATEA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 16 November 1867

HER MAJESTY'S SHIII GALATE A. From the S. A. Jegfstler. - Tim appearance of the Galatea' fromn ;a short distance is most deceptive, and there are very few personis who would judge.her to be 317 feet long. The iron wire employed for standinglrig ging gives:her a light appearance aloft but taut withal. Taut she certainly. is, seeing that from the waterline :to the maintruck is 186 feet; yet a nau -tical man would pronounce her to be less square than usual. The main yard between tle lifts is 88 feet, cr 96 feet from out to out. , On going alongside the appoint ments of the gangway first attract at tention; and immediately the. foot is set on deck the vast proportions, of the ship become, evident. A beauti ful promenade deck, 50 feet by 280, lies- before the visitor. I he total space is so great -that the portion oc cupied bj, skylgligts, mhidship-boats, funnels, and casig, seems but a trifle. Itr.must be: iremembered tfle iinple ments of :warfare are oelow, and this part is entirely un...

REPORT ALLUDED TO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 16 November 1867

REPORT ALLUDED TO.   In reference to the portion of Mr Wright's letter referring to Roads and the newspaper paragraph ac- companying same, I have to report That the statement in the concluding paragraph of the newspaper article is without foundation. Tenders were invited twice for the flooring of the Queanbeyan bridge, and opened on the 30th January and 20th February, 1866, and that only two tenders were received each time. The contract was awarded to Hall and Muller, who failed to carry it out as their timber was rejected, and, purchased by the writer of this letter Mr Wright. The next tender, that of Evans, was then accepted. Evans gave some trouble in carrying out the work, and was cer- tainly no favourite of mine as will appear by my very strong comments on his letters; but he did his work well when it was done. During my recent visit having had my attention drawn in very strong terms by Mr De Salis, M.P., to the state of the road, Bungendore to Queanbeyan, which ha...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 16 November 1867

TO THE EDITOR. SIR,--Your confidence has been very much abused by no less than three writers on the same subject-- of the two who are anonymous, whether dupes or conspirators, I must request you to furnish me the names. These have in so many words stated that I made use of my influence, cunningly and corruptly to deprive Joseph Oldfield of a selection that he vir- tually had already made on my leasehold--charging me, in fact, with conspiracy. I state once for all that personally I had known nothing of the intention of my son to take up the selection alluded to by Oldfield. Now that I do know the circumstances, I cannot disapprove of a course in which dishonesty and ingratitude have been caught in their own trap. In requital for long-con- tinued kindness Oldfield planned me an injury-- truly, by law--yes! that kind of law which the vilest of usurers and pettifoggers alone would dream of. I am not sorry to hear that he has met his match. Oldfield has been goodnaturedly permitted to re...

ARRIVAL OF THE GALATEA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 16 November 1867

ARRIVAL OF THE GALATEA. From the South Australian Advertiser. ON Tuesday afternoon the weather was close and sultry, and when the mail steamer sailed the mirage on the distant horizon distorted objects into all kinds of queer shapes. At 3 a.m. an alarm was made. The dawn had scarcely shown before telescopes turned towards Point Malcolm showed taut spars and a long hull, above which the two funnels being distinctly seen, left no doubt that the Galatea had arrived. The sun was not far above the hills when the wind blew freshly from about west by south, causing a light sea to rise. In this the steamer Goolwa made rapid progress, and shortly after 7 o'clock the shipping re- porter boarded the Galatea. His Royal Highness had made his appearance on deck and made various inquiries relative to buoys. The ship lay at anchor off Glenelg in seven   fathoms. The vessel was drawing but 22 feet, and her navigators had secured a first rate position, notwithstanding that their charts w...
