Original Poetry. ON OUR CLIFFS NO CASTLE LIFTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 11 January 1868
ON OUR CLIFFS NO CASTLE LIFTS. On our beetling cliffs no castle lifts Its time-worn turrets to the skies; Nor on our plains do ruin'd fanes Mid antique ivy-clusters rise, Like storied pages of the ages Dimly looming through the past, With a halo, rich and mellow, Round their hoary histories cast. No ravelled mystery is our history--- It is but of yesterday; No ancient glory gilds our story, With its wild romantic ray . All our legends are of regions Whence our British parents sprung; And the numbers which soothe our slumbers O'er their cradles have been sung. We inherit their brave spirit, &nbsp; We are sharers of their fame, Though Australians we're not aliens To the proud old British name : Yes, we claim -it, and ne'er will shame it By deeds of infamy;. Britons ever! nor shall time sever The dear old kindred tie. BUSHMAN. Molonglo, December 6th, 1867.

COOKNEY SPORTING AT WA?AGAr AGGA.--On the first day of the new year the wildfowl shooting season commenced, and on the night before, and long before daylight on this the first privileged morning, numbers of our townsmen sallied forth, gun in hand, on murderous thoughts intent. One keen sportsmen at the dawn'ot the day found himself on tle bank of lagoon on which numbers of unsuspicious ducks were quietly resting. Creeping cautiously down he ob tained asight, pulled the trigger and blazed away. He did not kill any ducks, but a whizzing noise close to his ear revealed the unpleasant fact that he had narrowly escaped makinga hole in his own skull with a truant nipple. Recovering from this little shock he proceeding a little further and tried the other barrel at another squad of wildfowl. Nothing but the cap exploded, he then discovered that in his haste he had inadvertently loaded his' piece with the shut first. There was no.worm' on his ramrod, and he had to return ignominiously home ...

BUSHRANGING AND OUR POLICE SYSTEM. &nbsp; BY A NATIVE TROOPER. From the Empire MENTION was made of the arrival, as se- cret police, of Meares's party, Turner's party, and the two brothers, "the natives," as I called them. The natives did not receive much information at our station, except from myself, and I told them all that I dared, without compromising my authors. Turner's party-stopped at our station one night to spell, and as I knew them to be respectable men I asked them to sit down and have something to eat. It was all right till they left, and then I got my knuckles rapped for asking them. "Who &nbsp; were they? They didn't want them there." I saw the old jealousy, and swore to my- self, if my best friend called I would ra- ther give him a shilling to go to the store and get some dry biscuits for his dinner. We had a mess, and all the police that came had to pay if they took better. Some of the parties who came frequently got the leavings. Wright's party ofte...

TORNADO ON THE RIO GRANDE. The Brownsville Courier gives detals of an awful hurricane on Rio Grande, from which it appears there is not a habitation which has not felt the terrible force of the storm, while the majority of business &nbsp; houses are in ruins. All the steamers are partially or totally destroyed. The Cam- ergo and Santiago are suuk, the Col. Be- nedict, San Roman, Tamaulipas Nos. 1 &nbsp; and 2 have had their upper works and cabins destroyed ; the Matamoras drifted down the river, and is now lying at the point wrecked ; the Tamaulipas No. 1 al- though badly damaged is yet able to run. Santa Cruz is almost totally destroyed. Nothing is left standing but the house of Garibaldi, and that building is badly da- maged. There were ten persons killed and twenty wounded at Santa Cruz. The destruction at Matamoras was still greater than at Brownsville. Whole squares of edifices are mere ruins, and it is estimated that 1500 houses and jacals have been de- stroyed...

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 January 1868
TO THIE EDITOR. SIa,-What on earth are, we :to exxpe rience next? I am sorry to observe by the S. M. Herald, aslso by" telegrams in one or two country journals, that a riot is expected. It seems to me a most ridicu lous hoax, and but stirs the public mind to unnecessary excitement. A riot ! what about? What factions are prominent in New South Wales ? I think we have had iiot enough in our Assembly without see ing it out of doors. HOW strange it is. that the moment a luestion of importance arises (such as the Education Bill) we find some disposed to raise a .popular cry. What factions have we here? I would say, none. At the same time I doubt not there are to be found a few choice spirits who would by their ignorance induce others to believe they were patriots of the first order. I would not.insult the good sense of the colony by supposing for one moment there exists any faction. Soime are alarmed. no doubt, and wonder when the supposed riot will take. place, and where? .IMy own opini...
TASMANIA. ARRIVAL OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 January 1868
TASMANIA. From the Launceston Examiner, January 7. ARRIVAL OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. A TELEGRAx from Hobart Town, dated Monday, 5 p.m., says :- " Her Majesty's steam frigate Galatea, under the command of his Royal Highness the Duke of Edin burgh, arrived here at half-past 3 p.m. About 3000 spectators assembled.on the wharf. Great enthusi asm prevailed, and the concourse cheered immensely. According to arrangement, a salute of "21 guns wss fired from the Albert Battery. The compliment was not returned. The fine ship only displayed the St. George's ensign at the peak." PREPARATIONS FOR THE DUKE.-The Scotch motto, " An' will ye no come back .again," is now *fixed on the cornice of the Town-hall; Launceston. The motto has very littla meaning in the'eyes of an Englishman, but to our royal Scotch visitor it con vr) s such a welcome as cannot be expreqsed in the English language. The Scotch seldom or never use the word " welcome," it being mere southern lan guage, and "welcome" has been so...
