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...
THE ENGLISH SINGERS IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867
THE ENGLISH SINGERS IN PARIS. (From the Christian Wlorld.) IN connection with the great French Exhi bition it was announced that a choral con test on a colossal scale would take place for a prize of £200 and an emblematical wreath. Invitations to take part in the competition were accordingly forwarded to the various choral associations of Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and other countries, the only restriction imposed being that none of the choralists should be professional singers.. In England the challenge was at once accepted by the Tonic Sol-fa Association, the com mittee of which forthwith organised a com petition choir of seventy male and female voices under the direction of Mr. Joseph Proudman. . To those who knew the low estimation in which English choral singing was held on the continent, the experiment appeared all but hopeless, especially when it became public that the famous body of sing ers known as the Cologne Union would pro bably join the competing choirs. Neverthe l...
POPULAR ART AND GUSTAVE DORE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867
POPULAR ART AND GUSTAVE DORE. (From the Australasian.) The spread of serial and popular sketches is one of the most prominent features of the literature of the present century. Sixty years ago cheap periodicals were almost unknown, and the illustration of the maga- sines of the day was considered an inferior profession; but the immense demand for cheap popular literature gave a fillip to art, and the high price paid for vigorous etchings and engravings stimulated the artists of the day, and virtually created the modern school of engravers. The old woodcuts in the magazines of forty years back only excite ridicule in the present day; and even Bewick, who is the father of wood-engraving in Eng- land, looks rough and coarse when compared with the pretentious and finished pictures of Harrison Weir and Harvey. Tom Hood's Comic Annual, and even Seymour's Sketches, show to disadvantage beside the brilliancy and dash of John Leech, the exquisite finish of Tenniel, the bold mannerism of Gilb...
MOLONGLO. Wednesday, October 2nd. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867
MOLONGLO. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Wednesday, October 2nd. &nbsp; &nbsp; SINCE my last letter the fine, mild, spring weather which we were then enjoying, has given place to rough, boisterous, midwinter-like gales. Strong, bleak westerly winds, with an occasional shower of either sleet or rain, have prevailed for the last week. And however favourable such weather may be for agricultural purposes, it could not have set, in in a worse time as far as the lambing is concerned. It is next to an impossiblity to save any of the lambs dropped through the night, the weather being bitterly cold. We had a very heavy thunder-storm this evening, and from the present appearance of the night I am of opinion it was a clearing-up shower. There is a heavy flood in the Molonglo, and the river is still ri- sing, and I would not feel surprised to see the flats covered with water in the morning when the moun- tain water comes down. I am afraid that I shall not consequently be able to send...

CHILD MURDER AT BATHURST. —At the Bathurst police-court, Charles Atkins was brought up charged with the murder of the illegitimate child of Harriet Hannah Short, and Mary Williams was also charged with being accessory to the said murder. The ap- prehending constable deposed: —From information I received on Tuesday, the 5th instant, I went to the well of a house in a garden near Durham-street, and there saw a baby floating in the water ; it was about eight feet to the water from the surface of the ground, and I got it up with a grapnell ; it had upon it the clothes produced, with, the exception of the cape which was lying beside the well. —Ellinor Johnson, wife of William Johnson, deposed : I live in William-street; I know both the prisoners; I remember hearing about a baby being found in a &nbsp; well; the inquest was held last Friday week; I heard that the baby clothes had been traced to Mrs Short, the female prisoner; I heard this on Tuesday after the inquest; Mrs Williams...

SUGAR FROM THE MANNING. TO .TE, EDITOR OF THE EMIPIRE. . Sir--I enclose herewith extracts-from a letter received from Joseph Andrews, Esq;., Woodside,, Manning River, respecting the growth and manufacture of sugar; , also two samples of the kind: he has already manufactured, which places beyond a doubt the suitability of our soil and climate for the production of s'uch an important article, not only for our own requirements,. but in a year or two for exportation. Let the capitalists take this infant industry by the hand, for in a year or two it will more than realize the most sanguine expectations of its promoters. I may be allowed to state that until I saw for myself (while on a visit last week to the above district) I did not believe in the simplicity of culture and manufac ture required. You will observe- Mr An drews reprobates having anything to do with the beet root; he has touched upon several points of importance, which may be worthy of, the notice oft those interested. - You...

WEDNESDAY.- The weather for the past few 'd'ay las .been excessively hot. To-day may well 'be called the hottest day of the season.. Early in the morning the wind was blowing in puffs, as though from a furnace. As yet (and the afternoon it now fairly advanced), there are no signs of a thunder atorm, so I expect we shall have it still hotter to morrow. 'TThe Queensland Steam Navigation Company, ever, in misfortune, have had another of their steamers israbled. It appears from. the telegrams, received from. Brisbarie,..that on Saturday at 2 a.m., 'going at half speed,,she struck on a rock off Bustard Island, on her passage to the Northern Porte. The water iismediately commenced to rush into the forehold; lioats were put out and the passengers sent ashore on Bustard Island; =a few turns of her engines, and the steamer was got afloat, settling rather dangerously fast by the head, she steamed towards land, and was fortunately beached on Pancake beach, where she lay- in safety until the li...

SPIRIT OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 12 October 1867
SPIRIT OF THE WEEK. (From the European Times.) THE amendment introduced by Lord Hali fax in the House of Lords, in the committee of the Reform Bill, to the effect that the soheme of redistribution proposed by the government is inadequate, and that it is ex pedient to provide the means of giving more representatives to large and important con stituencies than are proposed by the bill, met with scant support. It found one hun dred opponents, and only fifty-nine sup porters, and though Lord Halifax was care Ini to explain that he brought forward the subject not as a vote of censure on the government but as an offer of assistance to them, still the abstract nature of the propo sition was fatal to its success. The amend mnent had its origin in a meeting of liberal peers, held a few days ago, at the house of Lord Russell. With respect to the franchise, his lordship was careful to explain that his experience of his fellow-countrymen, and especially the working-classes, inspired him with pe...

SUGAR-BEET. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 16 October 1867
SUGAR-BEET. (From the .Australasian.) W ~ r first it was proposed to make sugar in Europe much protection was required to induce anyone to undertake the risk, and after the beginning was made the new in dustry had to be carefully nursed for many years before it became well established. This was partly because the making of sugar profitably was generally supposed to be one of the occupations with such a result possible only in warm climates, and partly because the raw material then available was only capable of yielding very poor returns. The first cause rendered practical men obdurately averse to the idea, and the second was well calculated to dishearten those induced to make the experiment. However, the rulers and so-called theorists of the day were wiser in their generation than practical men, and almost forced on these, at no little cost to their several communities, a branch of em plo3yment which has now assumed very large proportions, and is eminently beneficial to the differen...
