PRUSSIA. BERLIN, August 9. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
PRUSSIA. BERLN, August 9. The Prussiani government has become anxious for the safety of the Baron Von Magnus, minister resi dent of Prussia in the city of. Mexico. It is feared that his intervention -in behalf of Maximilian has provoked the hostility of the Mexican.leaders. No despatches have been. received from Baron Von Magnus for some time. A Prussian army commission appoiitedi:o examine the Chassepot rifle, has reported against its adoption by the Prussian war department. A convention of prominent liberals of Southern Germany was held in Stuttgardt on the 7th instant, at which resolutions were adopted urging the southern states of Germany to unite with the North German Confederation. •The city of Hamburg will sign a military conven tion with Prussia, and the city of Lubec will do the same. The Prussian minister of finance expects to make a very satisfactory exhibit when proposing the next budget. King William of Prussia has issued a proclama tion, in accordance with which he ass...
AUSTRIA. VIENNA, August 9. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
AUSTRIA. VIENNA, August 9. . The Emperor Francis Joseph intends returning Napoleon's visit on an early day. The Wanderer of this city says that the accounts given by travellers coming from Montenegro about the cholera are frightful. in a district of the Herze gowine, in a population of 32,000 souls, 1800 cases have appeared. Everybody is flying from the con tagion, and the dead bodies are left as a prey to the dogs. Louis Kossuth has been unanimously elected to the Hungarian Diet from the city of Wartzen. His election causes much alarm among the members of the conservative party of Hungary, who fear that his extreme views may lead to a disturbance of the existing political agreement with the Emperor of Austria. The Sultan of Turkey, after a very pleasant and agreeable visit to the Emperor Francis Joseph, has returned to Constantinople.
RUSSIA. ST. PETERSBURG, August 9. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
RUSSIA. ST. PETERSBURG, August 9. Accounts of the Russian grain crop are extremely favourable, and indicate a very heavy yield. There will be an immense surplus for exportation. The Russians still complain about the sentence inflicted by the criminal court of Paris upon Ber zouski, the would-be assassin of the Czar. They think he ought to have been condemned to death and promptly executed. The peace overtures of the Emir of Bokhara to the Czar Alexander were agreed to on the 11th July. In accordance therewith hostilities :are not to recom mence except in case of extreme necessity, the Emir of Bokhara on his part to give orders for the cessa tion of hostilities. The envoy from Bokhara has given guarantees that this condition shall be faith fully fulfilled.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
VICTORIA. FROM all parts of the colony we have accounts of the heavy rain which fell on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Yarra was running bank high yesterday, and we hear that the low-lying lands contiguous to the river near Melbourne were flooded. The bridge'over the Muddy Creek has, we learn, been swept away. Our Geelong correspon dent, writing yesterday, says :-" Geelong has been visited with the greatest inundation it has exper ienced since 1851, when the bridge at the Barwon - was carried away. Nearly the entire range of country from Belmont .to the Barwon Heads is covered with .water, and of the smiling homesteads of yesterday nothing now can be seen but the roofs and the chimneys, everything beneath their level being submerged in an angry and overwhelming flood. The damage done in the neighbourhood of the breakwater is very great; there the impetuous waters have swept everything before them. On the south bank the tan-pits of Mr. John 'Brearley were filled with the devastating elem...

QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
QUEANBEYAN (FROM OUR OORRESPONDENT.) CRICKET.-A meeting was held at J. B. Thompson Esqr. on Friday evening last, to re-establish a cricket club for the coming season. The secretary informed the meeting that there is at present a balance of' £3 14s 6d in the hands of the treasurer &nbsp; since last year. The subscription is made very low, viz., 5s to new members and 2s 6d to old members that paid their subscription last season. I think we may expect to have a very good club here this season, if they will only practise when they have an opportunity. All material necessary for practice are prepared &nbsp; and ready now for any members that may wish &nbsp; to have a game. &nbsp; It is not' known here at present who is the success ful. tenderer for the Boro and Cooma mails or the Lanyon one. I did hear- a rumour that a -private telegratir had been received by a gentleman, in town, but since have heard that there is a mistake- in the nature ofothe'telegra...
THE BALANCE RAILWAY. To the Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
THE BALANCE RAILL WAY. To the Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. Sr,--Mr. Dyer exhibits in the lobby of the Assembly the model of a railway, which he has persistently advocated in your columns during many years, as the mrost suitable for a new, wooded, and thinly inhabited country. To most people the idea of railway -presents at least two rails. On some of the last invention there are three rails, all supported by sleepers lying on the ground. A Mr. Palmer, so early as 1821, suggested that a single line was quite sufficient to support a couple of wheels, one before the other, from whose axles on -either side should be suspended a couple of pannier-cars, the loads of which bal anced each other. : If the centre of gravity of these two conjoined cars were above the rail, the whole affair naturally rests in uncertain or unstable equilibrium, and immediately .come to grief; but by suspending the cars (and of course their centre of gravity) Ielowthe rail, they are as secure as if rest i...
THE REIGN OF TERROR IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
THE REIGN OF TERROR IN MEXICO. THE state of affairs ili Mexico, instead of improving, appears to be daily growing wdrse. It would, be diffidult to imagine anything more unfavourable than the batch of news just received from that unhappy country by way of New York. The reign of terror inaugurated by the execution of Maximilian, Mejia, and Miramon, after a mock trial before a military tribunal, with out an opportunity for defence, is being prosecuted with all the cruelty which Mexi can vindictiveness and revenge can dictate; and the assertion of the wretch Escobedo, in his Queretaro letter, that he " had made terror the order of the day everywhere," and "he hoped, before closing his military career, to see the blood of every foreigner in the country spilt," turns out to be no idle braggardism, but stern reality. The. cor respondent of' the New York Times, whose testimony, that journal says, will: defy impeachment, writing from the. city of Mexico, June 26th, draws a fearful picture of...
MEN AT WOMEN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
MEN AT WOMEN'S WORK. S (From the Quec?i.) THERE is a good deal of outcry at the- pre sent moment as to what will become of men if women are educated so as to compete with them in some of their occupations. This rather goes upon the principle that when the maintenance of both men and women has to be provided for men have the prior claim, that of women being inconsiderable; but, as men make the objection, and they are the persons to suffer from the competition, it is not unnatural that they should do so. When anyone holds a monopoly, it is diffi cult to persuade him to give it up for the general benefit of the nation. If, indeed, he feels that he has no power to retain it, he may make a virtue of necessity, and let it go with as good grace as he may. But let him be sure that he can retain his monopoly, and he will. With regard to work, men have not been slow to exhibit their desire for its monopoly, as far as regards women. Among handicraftsmen strikes have arisen because of the propo...
THE PRESS OF THE ANTIPODES. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
THE PRESS OF THE ANTIPODES. (From the New York Times. Iir large, handsome, and well-edited news papers, crowded with advertisements, are any indication of advanced and liberal civilisation, and of material prosperity, the colonies of Australia and New Zealand cannot be very far behind the parent country in these re spects. Of course, the very first thing which an Eglish or American colony does, after getting fairly settled, is to publish a news : paper, be it on ever so small a pattern. Even the little settlement of New Englanders at Jaffa has a weekly paper, though there are not fifty persons to read it, and its entire contents would scarcely fill a single column of the Times. But the Australian press is almost metropolitan in importance. The daily papers of Melbourne and Sydney rival those of London and New York in size and appearance, and are not wanting in editorial ability ; and though the topics generally dis cussed1 in; their columns possess local interest only, yet it is the...
UNITED STATES. NEW YORK, August 11. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
UNITED STATES. NEW YORK, August 11. This city is in a high state of ferment just now. It is well known by the prominent politicians of the country that for nearly a year past the relations between President Johnson and Secretary Stanton have been anything but of a friendly character. It is also well known that the President has for a long time back desired that the secretary would resign instead of remaining in his cabinet and annoying him by secretly threatening all his plans and measures. The differences between the two broke out into open and defiant rupture on the 5th instant, and the President sat down and indited the following laconic note, as calmly as he could, to his secretary- ship :-" Public considerations of high character constrain me to say that your resignation as secre- tary of war will be accepted." The ,Secretary was not to be got rid of in this manner. Far from it. He likes his position and evidently intends to hold on to it just as long as he possibly can. Animat...
The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
THE GOLD FIELD AT JUNCTION POINT. - A few items of intelligence have reached us from a corres- pondent in the neighbourhood of the Junction Point &nbsp; gold field on the Tuena road. There are at present about a hundred men at work, but owing to the swampy nature of the ground and the late constant rains, not much progress has been made in digging and washing. Whatever gold has been obtained was taken from the surface, no sinking as yet having exceeded four or five feet. All the miners are making a livelihood, notwithstanding the adverse weather, and many are doing well. Flour is retailed at the rate of £18 per ton; potatoes, £7 per ton; and beef 3½d. per lb. Tents and bark gunyahs are the habitations of the miners -Southern Argus. A party of miners, well known on the gold fields of the Braidwood district, and latterly from Queens- land, are now equipping themselves in Sydney for a visit to the mining district in the vicinity of Tuena, and from thence on a prospecting excurs...
MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867
MEXICO. The news almost daily received from Mexico con tinues to be of the most startling character. The carnival of blood is still kept up, and there is no tell ing when or where it is going to stop. A letter from Puebla thus feelingly and eloquently describes the degradation of Mexico :-" When Queretaro fell a drum-head court-martial was organ ised for a certain purpose; it performed its work well! But the liberal party has overshot the mark. The friends of the party have ceased to sympathise with it. They are horrified with its barbarities. The change has already began to dawn. Accusing voices, subdued as yet, will soon ring out like a clarion. The dead sleep quietly, but blood foully shed cries from the ground; from the graves of Maximilian, Miramon, and Mejia; from the graves of those who perished at Zelaya, Queretaro, San Jacinto, and other places; voices that tell how, from cold-blooded policy, foul murders have been com mitted, and calling to account the guilty. Most damagin...
GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 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 soil betwe...
