COUNTRY NEWS. QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 March 1860
COUNTIRY NEWS. QUEANBEYAN. : The following, from our Queanbeyan correspon dent, should have appeared in our last, but was in 4dvertently omitted.] .E mr.-Last night about eight o'clock - fire broke iut on the premises of Mr: Brick, a storekeeper, of this town.. Immediately after discovering the place to be in flames, the alarm was given, a great number of the inhabitants ran to the spot, and by their united efforts after some difficulty, succeeded in quenching the devouring element; had it not been discovered for a few minutes longer the whole property must have been consumed; but we are happy to say the loss is not so much as might be imagined; but still it must emount to something very considerable, the whole of the property destroyed being drapery. - The necessity of a fire-engine in this town, is now become great; what would be the consequence if such extensive premises as the stores of ilessrs..Wright, Levy and others were to take fire? All assistance to subdue it without an en...
(From our Files per 'Emen.') [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 March 1860
(From our Files per Emeu.') It is understobd that a measure, or.propo pal, having- for its oblject the defence of the Colonies, will be subniitted by Government to Parliament as early in the ensuing session as circumstances will permit. The details are not known-perhaps are not yet determined upon;. but as far as they have transpired, it seems that the measure will aplily'only to cer tsin colonies~ which will be asked to divide thecost with the .lnperial Government, while other colonies of greater wealth, such as Aus tralian will be left to provide theirow.n defen ces. We coufesswe have little reliance upon those crude outlines; .but we give them as they have reached us. We apprehend that before Ministers come to Parlinment with such a solheme, they will have bestowed more ma tura;.consideration upon its provisions... All domestic iiterests have been latterly so completely absorbed in.foreign affairs, and in the enrolnent of the Volunteers, that incidents are scarce at home. TheOChr...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. KIANDRA GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 March 1860
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; KIANDRA GOLD-FIELDS. &nbsp; THE mail from Cooma having been robbed, has pre- vented our receiving some letters that we expected would come to land direct from Kiandra. A friend who had reached Queanbeyan the evening previous to that on which the mail ought to have arrived, has, however, kindly favored us with the following, which fortunately supplies the hiatus. 'Sir, - Having having taken a journey to the Snowy River, perhaps, to many of your readers who have not been, or likely to take the journey, a short account of it may be amusing. " Three of us started from Cooma on Wednesday morning, and for several miles rode over a beautiful road, called the Dairyman's Plains. Passing round a bridle path to avoid a hill, we saw immense quantities of iron stone; in fact, it looked pure iron, pre- cisely like that at Mittagong. Here lie thousands, nay, millions of tons of ore, only awaiting the labour and capital of man to bring forth this more valu...

EUROPEAN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 24 March 1860
EUROPEAN EXTRACTS. The popular agitation in Hungary is being greatly prbomotedinot only by the heavy taoxes imposed of late by the Viennese go erohmet, :but by the superfluous cruelty of .the tax-collectuos. 'A letter from Pesth, of the 6th of January, states 5as follows: 'i The Austrian functionaries are continuing, in all parts of the country, to seize and "sell up" the furniture, grain, and live stock of the poot people who ure unable to meet their de mends. But the oppressive churacter of these p:lroceedings, and the mingled insolence and I. ruielty with which the Austrians carry them :out, are exciting a spirit of indignation among all classes, which threatens, sooner or later, to 'finid vent in a formidable explosion. Two cir c..msfunces of recent occurreonce will, I think, show that the endurance of the Hlungarians must be well nigh exhausted. A few days ago, at Pelzac, in the county of Szathmur, a peasant, named Kosa, had his horse seized for non-payment of taxes, and the an...

IT would appear after all that the ministry intend attempting to carry on the.business of the country with the House of Assembly as at present constituted. I lt may well be doubted whether it would not have been a wiser policy to have dissolved --an attempt to pass the estimates having 'fmit been made. For a more impracticable lot tihan the gentlemen who at present consti tute the 'repository of the wisdom of parlia ment has certainly never in New South Welsh annals 'been "assembled together. ' It might be,-?ertainly, that the result of another elec tion would place its in a posttion not a whit better. For instance, Qaeanboyan and Argylo might again retturn lunatics, and Syd ney. nmight again disfranchise herself by ,electing, members who would always be found v'oting rigainst each other. But even if the seve ral constituencies be crazed enough to return muen whom they must have found incomnpotent for the work of legislation, and unwilling to allow others to do that which they thems...
LACHLAN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 24 March 1860
. . LACILAN DISTRICT. ((From our eom GCrrespondent.) RAN..--We have no need now to complain of the. want of water. We havelhad five days' and five nights' heavy ruin. On Tuesday, the decond day of its continuance, it rained as if poured through a sieve, fron~ about I p.m. to about a quarter past 7 p.m. I never witnessed anything equal to the in cessant and rapid descent of this wished-for element dluring the above time. Had it continued raining a day or two longer, it would have, in all probability, overflown the banks of the main creek, and the in habitants would have had no other resource than to take to the trees which grow on its banks, or the hills in the far wesa, and this latter could not well be done, for when the water would liave overflown its banks, as they are much higher, the body of water id overflowing would doubtless move on to the centre 'f the swampy plain. .It would then be impossible 'for a horseman to wade or swim over. I have heard of no'damage caused by the fl...

COUNTRY NEW S. QUEANBEYAN. (Froms our own Correipondesnt.) NOTmINO has been heard of the parties who robbed the Cooma mail. . The police have just returned after three hard days' riding, without aly clue'to the rpb bers whatever; all that has been found is an empty mail bag. I fear the thieves will now evade their vigilance. I-must again be under the necessity of adverting to.the'utter want of police protection on that road. The Queanboyan correspondent to the 'Chronicle,' as well as myself, have occasionally these - twelvo months brought this matter very strongly beforeothe public; but surely.,fter such transactions as have so lately occurred, there will. at once be the required protection afforded.'
