Queanbeyan Police Court. SATURDAY. (Before the Police Magistrate and W. F. Hayley, Esq.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 8 December 1860

Queanbeyan Police Court SATURDAY. (Before the Police Magistrate and W. F. Hayley, Esq.)   James Richard Webber and Edward Dunne, the two prisoners of whose apprehension we took some notice in our last issue, were brought before the bench, the former charged with having stolen a bullock, and the latter with being an accessory after the fact. From the evidence of the chief-constable, Mr. W. O'Neill and constable Keogh, who   apprehended the prisoners, it appeared that on Friday morning, after searching the whole of the previous night, they reached the Union Inn, Booth's Flats, kept by the father, of the prisoner Dunne, entered a room in the house, and in the presence of Dunne's mother and others, stated that he had come in search of the prisoner Webber, for whose apprehension he held a warrant for cattle stealing.

Original Poetry. WE PARTED IN SORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 8 December 1860

We parted in sorrow, Each heart full of grief. And the to-morrow Would bring no relief : Sad was each look, and, oh! Sadder each heart ;--   Surely two hearts that lov'd so, Never should part. And now separated,-- Parted for years;     Still closely related   By all that endears:   Slow, slow does each day move, Like seasons of pain,-- Surely two hearts that so love, Should meet again.   The strength of affection, The power of love, Knows no subjection,-- 'Tis from above. What then shall subdue it ? Who shall forget ?   Truly, thought doth renew it-- Absence but fret.   Not parted,forever ever, -- So dry up those tears,   Though vain the endeavour To quell one's own fears:   There is bliss yet for thee,-- Love cannot die; Truly that hour will be, To meet by and by. ST. COLUMB. Queanbeyan, Dec. 5th, 1860.

TO THE ELECTIORS OF QUEANBEYAN. Per favour of the "Golden Age." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 8 December 1860

TO THE ELECTORS OF QUEANBEYAN.     Per favour of the "Golden Age."   Gentlemen,—In addressing a few words to you upon the present, occasion, and claiming the indulgence always conceded to one who makes his first attempt at "things political,"   I do so, I assure you, with a considerable. amount of diffidence; firstly, on account of its being my first attempt, and, secondly, from being unable to treat the subject in a manner worthy of its merits. But when I think of the number who will cast their eyes over this co lumn, and know that each one is interested, deeply interested,—in anything connected with the new land bill,—a bill which found birth in the genius and statesmanship of the talen ted and patriotic Robertson,—a bill founded -upon the broadest principles of human rights, —a bill which has for its object the throwing open of thousands of homes for thousands of our fellow-creatures,—a bill whose principles will be backed and s...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 December 1860

* -GOULBURN. " _..' .From our own Correspondent. ,; O1Rpoliticians- have quietly settled down again, after the excitement attendant on an election, and are patiently awaiting the gene ral.result of the present appeal to the consti tuencies. The number of untried (new) mem bers appears as if it would be large. : What 'effect they may have in raising or depressing. the business of the house, time alone can tell. - Business in this big town is done principaliy by sellerp-off, caused either by the pressure of the times, or that too frequently adopted principle of gulling the gullible into purchas ing showy trash at more than its fair value.

THE POLLING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 15 December 1860

THE POLLING DAY. On Wednesday last, the day fixed for poll ing, the town of Queanbeyan presented an. unusually animated appearance, owing to the presence of the electors, to whom the town was the most convenient polling place. Mr. Redman's friends mustered very strong,-in one instance making a grand cavalcade entree into the town, comprised of about 50 or 60 horsemen. Mr. Redman and one or two of his principal friends were chaired on the shoulders of their supporters; and during the state of the poll our ears were occasionally greeted with the hearty cheers of the friends of the successful candidate. At the country polling places the supporters of the two can didates were more on a parity, the consequence was that the demonstrations in their favour partook of a more mixed character. The   anxiety to know the state of the poll was universally intense. DECLARATION OF THE POLL. Exactly at 12 o'clock noon, on Thursday, the Returning Officer officially announced the state of...
