Select Poetry. AN EASTERN LOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 5 January 1861
-0--o-- ,JS AN EASTERN d+'LOGUE. "How mean 'mid all this glorious space,' How valueless am I ! " A little drop of water said, As trembling in the sky It downward fell, in haste to join, Tlhe unfathomable sea, 1 As if the watery mass its goal And sepulchre should be. Yet ne'er within the watery mass It disregarded fell, It found a shelter and a home- An oyster's concave shell; And there that little drop became A hard and precious gem, Meet ornament for royal wreaths, /'or Persia's diadem. Cheer up, faint heart, that hear'st the tale, Nor nothing worth'esteem Thy lot, however it to thee Contemptitble may seem; !Nor fear that thou, exempt from care Of Providence, should be Sun4istinguishable drop ', In-Nature's boundless sea.. e Power that called thee into life, :Has skill to make thee live, r Splace of refuge can provide, Another being give; nvest thy perishable form With beauty rich and rare, end when He makes His jewels up,". Grant.thee a setting there..,;.:

Sir,--May I make so bold as to enquire through the medium of your columns the cause of the present delay in finishing the new Hospital Building. I would now ask, sir, are the public moneys to be handled in this disgraceful manner? Here the fine days of summer are allowed to pass away without even roofing the building in, leav- ing the walls to perish in the winter, and perhaps in the long run be subjected to ruin and decay. Where is the Building Committee? Why not &nbsp; they insist on the work being done at once, or take ...

ettets to:_the #ditoat. To THe EDITOR OF ,THE GOLDEN AGE. Q UEANBEYAN HOSPITAL. Sir,--We are begiiniung to iUnderstand: the doctrine that things are great and small only. by comparison; and by contrast we firequently arrive at- the true bearings of a question by a very summary process. ' f we apply this test in reference to the origin of some of our public buildings'.in Queanbeyan, we- soon find ourselves' involved in' a dilem ma.: There aire reasons, however, for sup posing that delay will render the di fficulty more intricate; and it is plainly our. best. courseto deal with facts as they stand. Of these, buildings we select three, viz., the new Church, the Court-hbuuse, and the Hos pital. It is s~sfcient to '?y present purpose to speak solely of the 'histo-ry of their erec tion.. The old bzillding, which was used by the members of the Church of 'Eigland for pub lic prayer, was deemed . inconvenient by many. It became therefore necessary in the opinion of these persons to substitut...
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 12 January 1861
GOULBURN. (From our ozon Correspondent.) ALL the religious 'bodies here except the church of England are energetically respond ing to the call of the Evangelical Alliance in holding special meetings for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and that church I perceive by advertisement is tardily following suit ;its first meeting for the same purpose will be held to-night. Speculative Goulburn has received a rude shock in the general depression-numbers of the operative class have left, hence many small properties are to be let. We had a super abundauce of stores in the best of times, a few have succumbed under the pressure, some have left and the others for the most part are complaining bitterly of the times. Many of our land speculators who have given long prices for town allotments have burnt their fingers, two things operating to bring down the price-the scarcity of money, and a heavy town rate levied for the purpose of improving our streets; by the way I am glad to see our Town Counc...

Select Poetry. LITTLE BLOSSOM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 12 January 1861
Little Blossom came to us in summer, &nbsp; When sunbeams were joyous and bright, &nbsp; And we welcomed with glee to our dwelling. The elflng of life and of light. Rich in beauty she grew in our homestead, And her prattle fell sweet on the ear; We felt as each charm was unfolded, Our treasure grow wondrously dear. The blush-rose that bloom'd in our garden, So graceful, so modest and meek, Though its colours so rarely were blended, &nbsp; Scarce rivall'd her delicate cheek. When I gazed on the ringlets that shaded That face full of love and of truth, &nbsp; I could see she had stolen from her mother All the charms which had won me in youth. But the chill winds of autumn were coming To blight the blush-rose on its stem, And our daughter who came with the flowers, Was destined to wither with them ! But though in the cold earth we laid her, The dearly prized pledge of our love, We knew that our lost little Blossom Was blooning in mansions above. &...
GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 12 January 1861
GUN DAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) CHRISTMAS and New Year's day have both now passed away, and at this place they did so very quietly. Nothing happened to mar the quietness that usually reigns about that time. On Boxing day our cricketers had a friendly game with the Gininderra cricketers but the latter proved, as they have ever done, that they are too good a match for ours, for they again came off victorious. On New year's day the same clubs played a return match, when to the astonishment of all, the Gundaroo cricketers got the severest castiga- tion ever they received since their existence; for the Ginindernra players beat them in one innings and had eight runs to spare. How- ever, I am glad to inform you the Gunda- rooites, nothing daunted by all their former defeats, intend to have a slap at the Gininderra players as soon as possible, for they do not intend to let the Gininderraites possess the laurels always. All I wish them is success; and may the best players win. All a...

Metropolitan. Sydney, January 8th, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 12 January 1861
(From our City Crrrespondent.) Sydney, January 8th, 1861. The members of the new Parliament assem ble on Thursday for the purpose of taking the oaths and selecting their Speaker. On the following day the Parliament will be formally opened by the Governor General in person. As I intimated to you in my last no opposition will be offered to the re-election of Mr. Mur ray, and it is said that Mr. Cowper will be his proposer. Mr. Piddington has wisely deter mined not to offer himself for the Chairman ship of Committees, and Messrs. Wisdom and Hart are the candidates for the vacant chair ; Mr. Wisdom will in all probability be the successful one, for in addition to his claim of having been a thorough supporter of the min istry, he is an old friend and schoolfellow of the Premier, or rather I should say, of Mr. Robertson, as it is doubtful to whom belongs the rank of Premier. Moreover, Mr. Wisdom is one of those who notoriously entered the late parliament with a view of making politics a p...
