General Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 January 1868
O nerlt at NItelligtecq. WANTON CRUELTY. --. On Wednesday night, just as tbe members of the mechanics' institute were leaving the hall after attending the annual meeting, a" horse with a kerosene oil can tied firmly to his tail rushed along Auburn-street, passing along the footpath between the institute and the posts and nearly rtinning over two of the members. He then passed at fall gallop across the l'arket'square, nearly knocking down two other persons, then through Mr Butler's lane, and thence into the yard in front of Macfarlane's. All this time the poor animal was kicking furiously at the-can. Some persons here spoke to him, and there seemed a fair chance of getting him sufficiently quiet to have rid hini of the cause of an noyance, when unfortunately some one opened the gate, on which the horse dashed out, passed the Commercial -Iotel corner, and was last heard of crossing the Fitzroy. bridge, after again placing the lives and limbs of two gentlemen in jeopardy.

BUSHRANGING AND OUR POLICE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 January 1868
BUSHRANGING AND OUR POLICE SYSTEM. BY A NATIVE TROOPER. From the Empire As Bruce's case did not come on for trial at the May assizes, being remanded till August, I was sent back to Braidwood, where I had no sooner arrived than I was transferred back to Sydney, to stay at the depot till my three months' notice to leave the force had expired. A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE DEPOT. Before giving a brief account of my journey northward after Thunderbolt, I should like to say a little more about the depot at Sydney. The principal part of a trooper's duty there is to put his time in and make as much show to the public as possible. At almost every turn you take you meet a sergeant, and they all have some order. You are taught to ride, perhaps by some man that could not ride a chase for fifty yards in the bush with- out risk to life or limb. He is paid to teach bushmen to ride, if any happen to be there, which is but seldom, for they generally become disgusted and leave. You are stuck on a military...
