MURDER OF A GIRL NEAR PONTEFRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 24 November 1860
MURDER OF A GIRL NEAR PONTEFRACT. On the evening of the 2nd September, a terrible murder was committed at Upton Farm, near Pontefract, the victim being Elizabeth Mitchell, a girl 14 years of age and the supposed murderer her fellow-servant, George Thorpe, a lad of 17. Upton Farm is oocupied by Mr. Thomas Spink; the common road from Wakefield to Askern, &c., skirts the house, and the only bu.ldings near are a number of cottages, occupied by labouring meu. On Sunday afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Spink left home to visit some friends at Der rington, a place four miles distant, and the only persons left in the house were deceased and Thorpe. Thorpe, it is said, was a lad of 1 sullen and morose disposition. There appears to have been little congeniality between him and the deceased, notwithstanding which, we understood, it is alleged that he had made im proper overtures to the girl. Is appears that after Mr. and Mrs. Spinks had left home, Annie Cookson, a young woman who resides near, ...

Local & Provincial Intelligence &nbsp; &nbsp; -----0------ The continued delay of the Sydney mail we are sorry to say, leaves us without our usual metropolitan correspondence. Our latest Sydney advices are dated the 17th instant. The rain down the country has been falling in fearful quantites. The Empire says:--"It would really seem as if the seasons were being inverted, and instead of progressing into the midst of summer, we have found our way back to the middle of winter. For some twenty four hours past, it has rained as vigorously and continuously as though we hadn't had an inch of rain for six months. On Thursday night, a severe thunderstorm passed over the city from west to east; some few hours after wards the storm re-traversed its own track, &nbsp; and ever since, it has been raining almost &nbsp; ceaselessly, the wind shifting over all the &nbsp; &nbsp; points of the compass from, north to south-- strong east winds, how...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 24 November 1860
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. &nbsp; Sir,--It occasioned me considerable surprise to observe in your paper of Saturday, the 10th instant, the communication with the name of An- drew Cunningham attached to it. It is difficult to imagine how that person could bring himself to believe that the letter, which appeared in your &nbsp; columns some short time back under the signature &nbsp; of A. Tomahawk, was contributed or even sanc- tioned by Mr. De Salis; unless we are to con- clude that perversion of ideas, which is to be traced in each line of Mr. C.'s writing, has for the time utterly blinded his senses. I should con- sider it necessary publicly to apologise to Mr. De Salis, if by any inaccuracies I had caused him to to be thus outraged. I leave it to your readers to say whether an attack thus knowingly or care- lessly misdirected does not deserve the severest censures of the public. I deem it unnecessary to say anything in de- fence of the principle, now c...

TO THE ELECTORS OF QUENBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 1 December 1860
TO THE ELECTORS OF QUENBEYAN. Fellow Electors, You will shortly be called upon to exercise the important trust conferred upon you, of. electing a representative for the dis trict of Queanbeyan. The time has at last arrived when upon the proper exercise of that right, by you and the other constituencies, will depend whether the broad and fertile lands of this colony will become, what God in his providence intended they should be, the happy homes of an industrious population, where each one may " sit under his own vine and fig-tree, none daring to make him af-aid; " or.whether they are still to remain in the hands of a grasping monopolizing oligarchy;- whether there shall spring up on these wastes a bold yeomanry, their countriy's pride; or that the millions of fertile acres are still to be only the sheepwalks of a few shepherd kings, and you and your children their serfs and servants, mere "hewers of wood and drawers of water." If you are true to yourselves and to the in terests of y...
KIANDRA. Kiandra, 22nd November. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 1 December 1860
K'IAND.RA . -Fron?ri' Cor;espondent. Kiandra, 22nd November.. I have very little news to send you, and none of a startling nature. The diggings are very quiet just now. Rumours are afloat to day of a very richfleld somewhere in the di rection of Omeo. I cannot vouch for the truth of the report, but there is a rush to the place. It is also said that some very rich surfacing diggings have been discovered. I believe the latter report to be a fact, although I have not ascertained the exact directioin in which it lies. Fine weather has once more set in, but how long it will continue it is hard to say. But the diggers are delving away, and if we could only get a continuance of line weather, our escort returns would startle the down-country people. A chinaman the other day got a nug get weighing 62 ounces-a tidy little lump. 'Tlrade is dull. A large stock of all kinds of goods on the diggings, Flour selling to-day at £46 per ton; sugar, 7d.; rice, 6d.; and everything else low.
COOMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 1 December 1860
COOMA. &nbsp; &nbsp; The only matter of note here is the forth- coming elections-I may tell you as a positive fact that Hamilton has no intention of coming &nbsp; forward on this occasion. The fact is, &nbsp; that independent of his desire to return to private life, he would stand only a small chance of getting in if a man holding different opinions regarding "free selection before &nbsp; survey" were to take the field. Throwing &nbsp; aside altogether this all-absorbing question, I think I am safe in saying that he has done nothing during his term in office to advance the social and politial interests of the Monaro district. These are many- too numerous to mention. The most important for Monaro are bridges or punts, or perhaps both, across the Numeralla and Braidbo rivers; I must express my astonishmentt at the apathy &nbsp; &nbsp; displayed by the inhabitants of Cooma and the whole Monaro district, in a matter of such...
