THE SWAN WITH TWO NECKS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 19 January 1861
THE SWAN WITH TWO NECKS. Tins sign has long been an object of mystery to the curious; but this mys tery has been explained by the altera-:: tion of a single letter. The sign was orignally written "The Swan with two. .Nicks;" the meaning of which we findb' to be thus fully explained, in a comnmu nication to the Antiquarian Society; by the late Sir Joseph Banks. At a meeting of the Antiq-larian So ciety, held in the year 1810, Sir Joseph. Banks presented a curious roll of parch-. ment, exhibiting the marks or nicks, made on the beaks of the swans and. cygnets in the rivers and lakes of Lin colnshire; accompanied with an account of the privileges of certain persons for keeping swans in these waters, and the duty of the king's swan-herd in guard ing these fowls against depredators; also, for regulating their marks, and for pieventing any two persons from adopting the same figures and marks on the bills of their swans. Thus from the circumstance of .marking these swans with nicks, origin...
THE ONE RUSSIAN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 19 January 1861
THE ONE' RUSSIAN RAILWAY.: WE, proceeded bag and baggage to the station of the railway. Only one train starts daily; and the hour at which this most important event takes place is, or ought to be, eleven, A.M. Travellers are commanded by the, Go vernment to be at- the station precisely at ten; and even then they. are liable to be told that the train is full: as it is quite an unheard-of thing to put on an extra carriage for any number of pas sengers. Having arrived, therefore, at ten minutes before ten, to be quite sure of being in tiine, our, luggage was seized by a policeman, soldier;. or railway-por ter (for they" all were somewhat the same uniform), and carried in one direc tion, while we rushed in another to show our passports for Moscow, to pro cure which we had been to three diffe rent offices the day before. Here the description of our persons and reasons for travelling, which it contained, being copied at full length', we were hurried to another counter, where we got it sta...

-0 ?etitonrali~lr.ý (Fromt or ilty Crrresponident.) Sydney, 15th January, 1861. SoME extra interest : has been attached to the opening of the new " Parliament, in conse quence of the reiterated attacks and defences, of the HTerald and Empire respectively, on the personnel of the constituent parts of the As sembly. Whcn the Governor-General took his seat in the Council and the Usher of the Black Rod made his exit, for the purpose of summoning the "faithful commons," the eyes of the fair portion of the audience instinctively turned to the door-way to watch the entree of the new members. Tall and dignified, Mr. T. A. Murray first approached the vice-regal chair, closely followed by the four ministers, then a few of .the old members, with the newv representatives -bringing. up -the- rear' in. a. "ruck." I once read a very clever " chapter on noses," but I am not aware that anyone has ever written a chapter on bows, certainly, however, a sight of the various kinds ex hibited to his Excel...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 19 January 1861
. FfRANCE. France is making extraordinary mili tary preparations. A reserve force is to be established and kept in readiness for immediate action. A fleet is to sail in the spring, and a report was current in military circles that a decree would shortly appear, ordering the formation of fourth battalions to all the line regi ments-the usual precursor of war. An important pamphlet has appeared in Paris, intituled, "The Emperor Pope," and urging the Emperor Napoleon to separate from Rome, and constitute him self the head of the Catholic Church in France. Ministerial changes on a liberal scale, are punding in France.

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. * LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL: TnURSDAY, JANUARY 10TI, 1861. TIIE first session of the 'new Parliament com menced to-day, at five minutes past 12 o'clock.

Allen, as such, to open the Parliament. The PRESIDENT informed the Council that his Excellency the Governor-General would not attend personally, but that he had ap pointed a commission with the necessary powers to open Parliament. The PRESIDENT then directed the Sergeant at-Arms to call in the members of the Legis lative Assembly. After a short lapse entered the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, the Sergeant-at-Arms, Mr. Robertson, Mr. Cowper, Mr. Weckes, and about thirty of the members of the Assembly.

KIANDRA. DISCOVERY OF A RICH QUARTZ REEF.— [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 19 January 1861
KIANDRA. DISOVERY ,OF A RICH QUARTz REEF. Within the last few days considerable excite ment has prevailed respecting a newly-dis covered quartz reef on Jackass Flat. Some splendid specimens have hepn exhibited, and one weighing nearly 2cwt. is at present in Mr. Carmichael's bar for the purpose of showing any person the quality of the reef. As we mentioned in our last, we have not had an opportunity of examining the reef in the bot tom of the paddock so that we are unable to give any definite idea with respect to it, but everyone who has been to the claim and had an opportunity of judging are in favour of its turning out remarkably well. On Friday, when the large specimen we have just spoken of was first shewn, several gentlemen ofKian dra, offered from £40. to £50 for the stone as it was, but were refused by the owners. It has caused many parties to go over to the lo cality and mark out claims. They are noiw marked out for.a great distance on each side of the discoverers, who, owing...

CHINA. The war in China has been brought to a close, a new treaty having been signed ,at Pekin, and the Allied forces being about to quit that city. The following is from the Argus: SThe North China Herald says-The ra tifications of the treaty of Tien-tsin were exchanged, and the convention of Pekin signed and ratified in Pekin, on the 24th by the Earl of Elgin and Kincardine. HerlMajesty's special envoy, and Prince Kung, plenipotentiary of the Emperor of China. The same ceremonies, on the part of the French, were performed on the 25th. The palaces, &c., of Yuen-min-yuen, the summer residence of the Emperor, were utterly detroyed by fire, by the British forces, on the 18th and 19th. The remains of the four murdered prisoners, Messrs. T. W*. Bo'vlby; Detor mann, Lieutenant Anderson, and private Phipps, were buried in the Russian cemetery, outside the walls of Pekin, on 17th October.

IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 19 January 1861
IN PARLIAMENT. BY OCCULUS. &nbsp; THE electioneering pot has boiled over; and all the human froth which hissed, and spluttered and jumped, and jerked, about the legislative tit-bit then cooking, has accumulated beneath &nbsp; the Macquarie-street pot-lid. The steam got up on that occasion has evaporated into thin air; the political waters have got cool and still,-comparatively speaking; the Ministerial &nbsp; cooks congratulate each other upon having their returned dishes "done to a turn," and now &nbsp; range them in rows in the national dining rooms to see how they look with their covers off. It is a grand gala-day, the opening of the House. Everybody has come and left nobody at home. The officials of the house have come, looking very tight and very dignified. The reporters of the House have come, looking as if they had been tight, and with a dignity quite as great in its way as that of the officials. The guard have come, accompanying our "royalty &...

Letters to the Editor. &nbsp; [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Dear Sir.--In your issue of the 5th inst., I notice the report of a malicious injury to a horse, the property of a Mr. Edgar of this place, adding that Mr. E. offers a reward of £20 for the con- viction of the perpetrators of the cruel and ras- cally deed. Now, Mr. Editor, the above may read very well, and go down with that portion of the public who know nothing of the matter. But for the sake of the reputation of the neighbourhood, the truth must be stated. The simple fact is, that the horse died of a disease common to horsestock in this part of the country. W. J. Packer, Esq., whose experience amongst horses, extends over 40 years pronounced the animal diseased. Mr. W. Goslett whom we regard as our veterinary doctor also saw the horse and judged it so far diseased as to believe it dangerous his...
