VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 4 September 1867

VICTORIA. MR. FELLOWS had a long interview with the Governor on Friday, and has, we understand, placed himself in communication with Mr. O'Shanassy and one or two leading members of the opposition in the Legislative Assembly ; but the Governor has not entrusted Mr. Fellows with the formation of a ministry, nor has he been asked to undertake such a task. It would appear, from what was stated at the caucus of ministerial supporters held on Friday, that the McCulloch cabinet advised his Excellency to   prorogue parliament for a few days with the idea of again sending to the Legislative Council the Appro- priation Bill including the Lady Darling vote ; the payments to the civil servants and contractors to be in the meantime provided for by means of warrants. To this advice his Excellency declined to accede, and the ministry insisting that such a step was the only one possible under the circumstances, the Governor stated that, as an unusual course was suggested, he should pl...

THE GLORIES OF THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

THEi GLORIES OF THE TURF. (lrom the .Pall Mall Gazette.) BEFORE the Derby and the Oaks are quite forgotten by those who have no particular cause to recollect them, we may perhaps be permitted to make a remark or two upon the way in which these festivities are usually re garded amongst us. Nothing would be more easy than to give a common form for the composition of leading articles on the Derby day or the day afterwards. There is a little regulation allusion to the tired legis lators refreshing themselves after their herculean toils with the bracing air of Epsom Downs, a passing compliment to our national love for field sports and open-air amusements, a few lines about the spectacle being one peculiar to England which for eigners cannot even understand much less re-produce, and possibly a:passing glance at the evils connected with the matter;- all this put into a light digestible .shape soon makes up :the contribution of the press to the great racing events of the season. "People's w...

The Independent. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

2 ..d, end it SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th, 1867. EXCELLENT in many respects as was Mr ROBERTSON'S famous Land Bill of 1861, it contained many features which failed to make it an acceptable measure to all parties. It opened up to a great extent the waste lands of the territory, and. provided homes and occupation for thousands who, but for that measure, would never have been in a better position than that of servants or day labourers. But it was productive of much evil: It created an active hostility, in many instances between the pastoral tenant and conditional purchaser-a hostility which led to litigation and hatred between the con tending parties, so that ' squatter" and "free-selector " became terms significant of irreconcilable ill-will and inevitable opposi tion. The interests-we do not say the rights-of both parties clashed, and it be came apparent that further legislation on the land question was imperatively necessa ry. Whilst admitting the necessity for this, however, those who ...

THE EXTRACT OF MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

THE EXTRACT OF MEAT. (From the Australasian.) THE settlers are naturally anxious to know what prospect there is of the meat of their superfluous sheep being reduced to, or pre pared in, marketable form, and so of an addition being made to the boiling-down value of their flocks, and this assuredly will be done, but not to any great extent just at first. There are difficulties in the way of carrying out any of the proved processes, to be overcome by experience alone. It is not even decided amongst our chemical authori ties here, and those who know most about such things, which of these is likely to be most feasible. Some are in favour of Sloper's process, others of meat being preserved in tins according to the old mode ; some cherish the idea of good portable soup, as being the most generally useful, and therefore the most- marketable; others, again, think the carcases should, be frozen artificially and sent home in a mass of ice, as is now being experimentally tried from Sydney; but ...

The Gold Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

GRENFELL MINING REPORT -There is little news of importance to be recorded this week of any of our rushes. The Seven-mile, which is the spot on which all hopes are concentrated, has been quiet, that is tfr a new rush.. Everybody there is busy at work, either seeking for the " run," or else having found it, are proving its value. The great question now is whether the Seven-mile run and Finn's gully are one and the same lead. A large number of holes are being sunk to prove the question. It was rumoured on Thursday that gold had been struck one mile and a half ahead, between the Seven-mile and Daley's dam; but of the truth of this welcome rumour, we have failed to obtain proof. There will doubtless be several other shallow workings discovered in the immediate vicinity of this rush ere the summer is over, and it is possible that this rumour may have some foundation in fact. -It is also reported that at last gold in payable quantities has been struck at the Ten-mile, or what is known as t...

GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

.GARDENING OPERATIONS FOR THE WEEK. (From the Australasian.) THE KITCHEN GARDEN.---Persevere in the destruction of weeds in dry weather. The long continuance of mild showery weather has made it a difficult matter to- keep them down. Digging is the most effeotual method of destroying them at this season. Keep ground well stirred between all the young growing crops. As soon as any ground becomes -vacant it should be dug and planted afresh. Plant out cab bages and cauliflowers, and attend to earthing up advancing crops. Celery may be planted out in well-prepared trenches; be careful to keep the hearts of the plants clear of the soil. Successional crops of peas will require staking and earthing up; further sowings may still be made. Carrots may still be sown. Attend to thinning out all advancing crops. The excellence of the crop greatly depends on how this is performed. As a general rule these may be thinned out to four and six inches apart in the rows. Finish planting the main crop of ...

Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

APOLOGY. - We have to crave the indulgence of the greater part of our readers in town for an inad- vertence which occurred in the distribution of our last Wednesday's impression, through which a number of our issue for Queanbeyan, and having the title of the Age, were circulated amongst our Braidwood sub- scribers, and when the blunder was discovered it was too late to gather them up, as the Queanbeyan mail had left town. Substantially, however, the body of the paper was identical with that of the Indepen- dent. THE QUEANBEYAN ROAD.-The road known as Cole's line, and which leads hence to Queanbeyan, through Molonglo, is becoming a highly-important thoroughfare, and its practicability as a route for heavy-laden drays is demonstrated by the number of teams which for the past few weeks have given it the preference as a means of getting to Braidwood from Queanbeyan and places beyond. As many as four- teen teams were on the road on Wednesday, twelve of them laden with wheat for Braidwood...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

VICTORIA. RICHARD BELLAMY, otherwise Barnett, appeared at the city court on Monday morning, charged with poi- soning his wife, Mrs.. H. Barnett, at Hotham. The prisoner was not altered in his personal appearance since his arrest, but appeared somewhat nervous. Detective Duncan stated that he arrested the prisoner on warrant, at his house in Capel-street, Hotham, on Saturday evening; and in order to give the police an opportunity of preparing the evidence, a remand would be necessary. Mr. F. L. Smyth, who defended the prisoner, strongly objected to the remand, as he considered that the authorities had ample time dur- ing the progress of the inquest-which lasted over four or five weeks-to produce all the evidence necessary. Mr. Sturt said it was evident that the coroner was not satisfied with the result of his in- vestigation, as he had signed the warrant for the apprehension of the prisoner. The prisoner was then remanded for seven days, but was subsequently released on £300 bail-a M...

THE PLEASURES OF AN EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

-THE PLEASURES OF AN EDITOR. WHAT ! Buy the Morning Roarer and edit 'it'-? Not if. I know it, thank you. You ·don't'see why. I shouldn't ? Well, then, let ine tell you. I'd rather turn brickmaker, .coalheaver, woodcutter, fencer, dit'cher, any .thing rather than turn editor again." Bump tious, little man, was excited; his small, .dark eyes glittered like a ferret's; his hair, -short, wiry, and red, at the best of times grew upwards instead of downwards, and looked like the clipped mane of a horse; '`'"now it stood fairly upright, bristling with .excitement, like the hair on the neck of a .Scotch terrier when ratting; it plainly said, - No, sir, you can't impose upon me -it :won't do. I cant allow it for a moment." It amused me to draw him out, so I asked -him, why not ? " Why not ! Do you know .what sort of a man an editor must be, and what sort of a life he leads ? No ! Then -listen. In the first place he must be an en cyclopaedia, he must know everything. He is no use at all if he...

EXECUTION OF MAXIMILIAN AND HIS GENERALS. New York, July 10th [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

EXECUTION OF MAXIMILIAN AND HIS GENERALS. New York, July 10th   LATE intelligence from Mexico says that Maximillian, Mejia, and Miramon, were tried by court martial on the 14th ultimo, and sentenced to be executed on the 19th at 11 o'clock in the morning. The details of   the execution are thus given : - "At 6 o'clock on the 19th of June the troops of General Escobedo formed a short distance from the city for the execution of Maximilian and his Generals, the people of the Queretaro flocking by thousands to see the closing scenes in the life of the men they loved. As the clock strikes seven, the bells toll and announce that they left their prison for the last time, and are on their way to their execution. After a few moments they were drawn in carriages and a large guard around them, the Emperor first, Miramon next, and Mejia last. As they near the   place of execution, convulsive sobs break from the crowd. The carriages stop and the prisoners g...

MR. G. J. WHYTE MELVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

1MR. G. J. W HYTE MELVILLE. GEORGE JOHN WHYTrE MELVILLE, the sub ject of our present article, was born in 1821, and sent to Eton, where he had the advan tage of a system of discipline under the celebrated Dr. Keate, in days when proper punishment was by no means more honoured' in the breach than in the ob~irvance. We know not how far the subject of this notice, may have profited by its application, but he has evinced by his writings a love of elegant scholarship for which a public school educa tion (we have almost said of those days) has alone to be thanked. There is a " scent of the roses clinging round the vase" which proclaims its original habitant; and we think we detect the old public school stamp in every feeling that our author exhibits, in the whole tone of his mind, and in that re finement of language which never deserts him. He left Eton in 1839, and was gazetted to the 93rd Highlanders, which regiment, however, he left for the Cold stream Guards, with whom he remained unt...

ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

ARALUEN.     [FROM OUR CORRERPONDENT.] "FROM information received," as detectives say, I learn that the yield of gold on Major's Creek is highly encouraging, and some of the claims are netting a good profit. The only complaining is from those who have small claims in gullies, and that arises not so much from a scarcity of the " precious metal" as from the inadequate supply of water. The only time these claims can be profitably worked is during a rainy season. When will Dame Nature be able to please every person ? Why don't the rain come and give my back garden a good watering, and only sprinkle the road in front of my neighbour's shop to lay the dust? "What's one's food is another's poison."

BARBAROUS PROSECUTION OF JEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

BARBAROJS . PROSECUTION .OF ;JEWS. . M. BaRATIANO, minister of the interior of .Roumania, and the present prosecutor of the Jews at Moldavia, was, and probably still professes to be, a liberal of the first water. He had studied law in the schools of Paris, and contributed various articles to the Republican National and Revue Independ ante, -under the signature Regnault. .He fought on the barricades of February, 1848, for liberty, equality, and fraternity, and after having contributed as much as he could to the overthrow of the Orleans government, he returned with his experience to his native country. He then became a member of the revolutionary committee, and was sent to Transylvania and Hungary to offer the aid of the Rouman liberals to the Magyar movement. He then formed part of the commission sent to Constantinople to present the new Rouman Constitution to the Sultan. After the entry of the Russians into the principalities, he fled to Transyl vania, and then proceeded to London. ...
