FRANCE. PARIS, August 9. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

FRANCE. PARIS, August 9. The Emperor Napoleon is preparing for his visit to the Emperor of Austria. Marquis de Moustier, secretary of foreign affairs, will accompany him to Vienna and attend him during his stay there. The French semi-official journals deny that the visit of the Emperor Napoleon to Vienna has any political object, and declare that the rumours attri- buting a political significance to the interchange of courtesy between the two Emperors are wholly un- founded. The claims of France and of French subjects upon Mexico are to be carefully revised by a commission appointed by the Emperor Napoleon for that pur- pose. The most powerful iron vessel afloat, the American iron-clad Dunderberg, arrived at Cherbourg on the 3rd instant, after a passage of fourteen days and seventeen hours from New York. She encountered heavy weather and high seas on the voyage, but behaved nobly. The French government has pur- chased her for three million eight hundred thousand dollars. Monsignor D...

The Independent. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER [?]th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

- ri~_:ms.nna I" WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER th, 1867. WITH much reluctance we -have, at this early period of our career here, to lay be fore our readers certain matters affecting our prosperity and consequent professional use.. fulness. We did not enter upon our pre sent undertaking without counting the cost; but upon due inquiry made, we :-embarked" in an enterprise with reasonable ground for believing that it would be of mutual benefit to ourselves and constituents. We saw the difficulties that lay in our path ; we counted on brisk, though not unfair, opposition from -our contemporary; we made due allowance for the effects of the prejudice of our foes; and we saw the disadvantage arising from a comparative deficiency in our circulation, ' considered in relation to the older journal. To fortify us against all that, we came into the field already enjoying a good circulation in this and the adjoining districts of- Quean - beyan, Yass, Monaro, and Goulbnrn; we had the promise of support in ou...

Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

'Local and District News. How A PLAYFUL BULLOCK CAME BY HIS DEATH.-Not many days ago Mr John Lamp- kin, of Molonglo, lost one of his team of working bullocks in a manner as extraordi- nary as remarkable. Indeed, had the owner found his bullock dead, instead of being an eye-witness of the occurrence, he must have come to the apparently inevitable conclusion that the animal had been maliciously shot, as the only sign of the cause of death was an unmistakenable bullet wound in the crown of the forehead. It was fortunate, however, for the reputation of his neighbours that the casualty was seen to occur. The bullock met his death on this wise: In company with his team-fellows he was quietly descending, a hill, being driven homewards by the owner. At the bottom of the hill was a neighbour's bull, which, with an air of self-importance possessed more or less by all his race, stood defiantly in the road, with his head to the ground waiting to receive a charge from his supposed foes. One bull...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRAIDWOOD INDEPENDENT. Sir,--I have in vain looked for the publi cation of the written statement handed to the Minister for 'Works by our self-constituted deputation, respecting the roads in the South ern districts; and if our member, %ho formed one of them, does not choose, or is afraid vo luntarily to supply his constituents (whose in terests are so much at stake) with a copy ,of the same, he ought to be compelled to do. so by the unanimous demand of the people,-or; resign the position he so unworthily holds. I am afraid the very secresy and underhanded manner in .which the consultation with Mr Byrnes was conducted will lead the present .Government to look more favouralbly on the requisition than were it made in a straight forward and open manner, nor is this charge made unadvisably; secresy seems their peculiar forte. Witness the late mysterious and secret' commission held in this town, when the - evi dence taken with closed doors was acted ulpon and resulted...

NOT ALONE. The following lines were written by an old one-legged salt, well known at Newhaven, in answer to a friend who remarked to him "how solitary it must be to go to sea alone": WHILE sailing on the midnight sea (My little boat and I), Oh, how sublime the scenes I view, In heaven's high canopy. See constellations rise and set, And scan the starlit sky, Peruse the planets as they roll, Or meteors dancing high; While Sirius' great and glorious star Has brightly on me shone, I've said " while thus you look on me, I'm not at sea alone." I've mark'd the course the great bear takes Around the polar star, And look'd upon the dull red disc, Of Mars the God of War; Seen Venus rise, in beauty dress'd, To take her nightly roam; And Saturn with his leaden force, In southern skies at home; And Orion gorgeous with his belts, And grander there are none. How say you, then, unthinking man, That I'm at sea alone. I've watched the moon majestic rise,   From out the leaden sea, .. And...

SELF-RELIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

SELF-RELIANCE. SELT-RELIANCE bids defiance To a thousand petty cares ; Full of glory makes life's story,   And the highest honour wears; Onward moving, still improving, Borrowed plumes soon droop and fade; Few are thriving without striving, Success comes, though long delayed. Self-reliant, brave, defiant, Yet be not too stern of will Born of woman, be thou human, Feel for human nature still. Gold will sever hearts for ever, Though 'twas given but to bless; Oh, despise it, do not prize it, If sweet nature's loved the less. Self-relying, self-denying, Thus the chaster minds of old, Grand and solemn, raised art's column, Wrought the wonders we behold. Though but lowly, we may slowly Rise to eminence and fame; Match the sages of past ages With a great or goodly name.

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 9 October 1867

HONOURS CONFERRED ON THE PRINCE'S AR RiVAL. --The Sydney correspondent of the Pastoral 'Times (Deniliquin) states "that it is expected that the Hon. James Martin, Attorney-General, and Mr Moore, the Mayor of Sydney, will be knighted, consequent upon the visit of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh to Sydney." We may remark that al though it be a practice to knight mayors, attorney generals--those, moreover, who are premiers--go in for something higher. A mayor is chosen from the respectable class of citizens in trade, without any special reference as to his ability; an Attorney General is the Queen's representative, and surely would be entitled to a higher standing in the category of titles than a well-to-do auctioneer or cheesemon- ger. We are under the impression that, whatever Mr Moore may think proper to do, Mr Martin would not accept the dignity that the Sydney correspondent of the Deniliquin paper refers to. In England there is scarcely a gentleman, according to the vernacular of Eng...

My: father had built, a cabin quite comfortable enough for his purpose, and commenced clearing.-: and converting the savage wildernessintd a garden, to teem with corn and.. grain. I and. my brothers, of course, assisted him in his labours. At first we' apprehended but little danger from the savages, as they had' hitherto manifested a friendly disposition. But we were sooncon-. scious of our danger. The Indians com menced their depredations upon the white settlers. Tales of bloodshed were daily borne to our ears. We went to our daily labour with our weapons in our hands. At the close of a summer- day we were seated in our comfortable cabin as usual. A knocking was heard at the door. _My mother turned pale, and looked at my father, as if entreating him not to open it until he was certain who was without. I immediately acted upon this hint, and, stepping soft...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867

CALIFORNIA. FROM papers received by mail to Augusti 10th, we take the following : Governor Bidwell positively declines the Independent Union nomination-for Governor, and advises the election of the whole Union ticket. The Independent Union 'Committee have nominated Caleb L. Fay, a merchant of San Francisco, for Governor, and B. R. Nicker son for secretary of state. The regular Union ticket is gaining strength. More tioops are being sent to Arizona, and operations against the Indians are to be more urgently pressed. The receipts of the Central Pacific Rail way for July, were about 175,000 dollars in gold. Advices from the Sandwich Islands to July 13th, says that the King has named William C. Sunalite his successor in case of his death.

OUR BUSH HOMESTEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867

OUR BUSH HOMESTEADS.   OUR backwoods, thanks to the Hon. John Robertson's land bill, are fast becoming dotted with the rural homesteads of small settlers. And notwithstanding the many severe drawbacks our agricultural population has met with within the last few years, in the shape of drought, rust, and cattle dis ease, their numbers are fast increasing. At the present time there is hardly a glen, gully, or creek-side flat where 'a settler's home stead is not to be met with; many of them snug, cosy, well-kept little possessions, showing evident traces of industry, good taste, and love of order in their owners. But it is to be feared that the cosy little woodland nests--those bright spots in the wilderness--cannot be taken as an average criterion of their class, judging from the numerous rough, dilapidated, uncouth-look- ing huts and surroundings to be met with whilst -travelling through the bush. The rough nature of some of those primitive structures have, it is well kno...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867

JUNCTION POINT GOLD-FIELD.--Otober 2.--The Binda correspondent of the Southern Argus writes. Since my last'this gold-field has progressed favour ably, considering the very inclement state of the weather. Notwithstanding this great drawback, it is fast becoming a good-sized diggings.. There are three stores now built, and one or two in course of erection. The number of men at present on this gold-field is about 150, and there are arrivals daily. As a rule, all those on the ground are making good wages-say from £3 to £7 10s.. week; one party, particularly, obtained the latter figure last week. Considering the state of the weather, this may be looked upon as being good wages. The great fall of rain is the chief drawback to the place being tried as it would otherwise be. It is true there have been no great finds here up to the present, but when the state of times now is considered, men should be content with the rate of pay quoted. I know of two men who have been on this field for the l...
