LATE ENGAGEMENT IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

LATE ENGAGEMENT IN NEW. ZEALAND. WE take the following from ,the, Sydney papers :-" I think the action of Kairau, which has led to the surrender of Waitariko-. riko, will'be. the culminating point in the war.' It was a real affair, ,and 'no mistake. The Waikatos treated us to as hot: a fire as ever was in New Zealand, for twenty mortal hours, without respite. They were ensconced in rifle pits, one of which I paced this' morning, 178 paces, and in a ;hollow; just behind, was a large whare, capable of accommodating 150 men. There were' five breastworks.-one 82, another 72, another 1'02; and another 74 paces. It would be impossible to say where the great est coolness of bravery-was evinced, for every man 'illustrated Nelson's. signal, "England' expects every man to 'do his duty," and the spirit of emulation in the whole force was who should outvie the other.' On Sunday 'they evacuated their position, and at 4.80 this morn ing a storming party, composed of red and 'blue jackets, command...

FRIDAY.—JANUARY 25. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

FRIDAY.-JANUARY. 25. "Dr:' ROron gave notice that he would ,move the introduction of a clause in the Crown Lands Alienation Bill, giving and a land order for £20 to every immigrant'who arrives in this colony free of cost; at the expiration of two years and additional order for £10, and half such sums for every child over fourteen years of age, such immigrant might bring out with him; and Mr. O'BnREN also gave notice of amend ments in the same bill, having for their object the removal. of the " improvements" condi tions, restricting the quantity to be selected to one ; hundred acres, and also modifying the proposed system of deferred payments. Mr. PARKES moved that the bill to abolish capital punishment be read a second time. He reviewed the history of capital punishment in England, comparing different periods, to prove that when there were fewer capital offen ces, crime was lower that at any other .times. The ends of all punishment should be to deter the evil-disposed from the commi...

SIR JOHN BOWRING ON CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

SIR JOHN BOWRTNG ON- CHINA. At the meeting held at Liverpool in con nection with the inauguration of the Brown Library and Museum, Sir John Bowring said :-" In China there are-400,000,000 who make no progress. They don't learn what con cerns the duties of daily life. They are wholly occupied with the past, which was the age of ignorance. They look not forward. They have not learned that great maxim of Bacon, that the present generation is the old est of generations, and that the earliest gene ration is the youngest. A maxim of more practical wisdom never fell from the lips of philosophy. What I should desire to see in this country is what I have seen in China a universal passion, a universal desire for in struction. Certainly that pervades the com munity, but the instructors and instruction of a valuable character are wanting. A half dozen LordBroughams-what wonders would they not work-(Hear, hear, and applause.) -with a language which 500,000,000 of men can read! On that subject pe...

KIANDRA. (From our, own, Correspondent. Theoreef is -now the whole talk of Kiandra,. amongst storekeepers, publicans, diggers, and in fact, every one. You -will see groups, of diggers and others 'stdinding conversing with each other, and the first. sentence that mdefs the ear is, "the reef isright." I myself have been down several times to the prospector's claim, and have seen large lumps of quartz taken out and lean assure you that .I never saw anything . so rich: It seems that more they take out the richer it. gets.

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

SIT'RDAYJ FEBRUARY 2, 1861. TILE public, whose interests we are bounid to. advocate and protect, would certainly charge us with gross and cul pable'neglect' were' we to refrain any longer from noticing the shameful man ner in which the present contract for the conveyance of mails between this. town and Cooma is performed. For weeks past,.not only have our ears been assailed with endless complaints of these unbearable irregularities; but our eyes liave witnessed what we can tolerate no longer, and be guiltless. Two grand mistakes have been made in connexion' with this contract. The one by the Contractor, in supposing that at so" low a figure and with such a 'wretched stud of horses, and ricketty set of conveyances, he could perform. his engagement with advantage to himself and justice to all concerned; the other, by tlie Government, who, with false no tidns of economy, accepted the lowest tenider, utterly regardless of the compe-, tency of the Contractor, or the interests of the publ...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

Original Poetry. ---0--- He walks along--that gloomy man--- O'er the rough and dewy ground, And ever and anon does stand, And listen for a sound. But naught is heard but the noisy bird, Or the locust whizzing round. He cuts a stick of box-tree strong, Pulls down his tattered hat, And mutters as he walks along-- I wonder what he's at. The goodness knows, but on he goes, Oe'r gully, hill, and flat.   He throws aside impending limb, With malediction dire, The lonely traveller, seeks he him ? Is plunder his desire? On selection free is he bent think ye, That he trudges through the mire ? But dark and darker grew his brow When be reached a grassy dell, Saying, "Darn them brutes, here, anyhow, I thought to find them well, But sure they're gone, yes eyery one; I cannot hear the bell." -Maitland Mercury. - R.

(Fromm our ity.. Correspondent.) Sydney, Januairy 29, 1861. SiNCE my last commtinication, one of the most interesting motions which could ' be brought before a Christian legislature has been under the discussion in the Assembly through Mr. Parkes,. viz., a motion for the second reading of the Bill- for the abolition of capital punishment. The Bill was originally intro duced by the present Speaker, but on his eleva tion to the chair, he entrusted ifs care to Mr. Parkes. It is with pain* and regret I record the fact that only sixteen members could see their way clear to accord it their support, or at any rate a support which could overcome the fatigue of sitting up till nearly one o'clock to record.their votes. Of the latter class there four-Messrs. Leary, .. Lesley, Gray and Lackey. I can. imagine your mental excla-. mation relative to the intellectual treat which your correspondent must have experienced on the debate of such a subject.-Envy me not, for a perusal of it as reported in...

Letters to the Editor. [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. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

Letters to the Editor. [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. Sir,--In R. D.'s communication to you respecting the Queanbeyan Hospital, I can- not find one single syllable which has any connexion with Cuppacumbalong, or the Murrumbidgee. If any one's friends choose injudiciously to defend his public conduct by personalities alone, it is to be regretted that you inserted them. The press has, at different times unmistakably hinted at cer- tain breaches of trust, and seemingly not one word to the purpose has been urged in defence. Strip Committee-man's letter of his abuse, and what does this work of a fortnight amount to? That R. D. resides on the Murrumbidgee, where a township ought to be proclaimed, because there is no deficiency of building materials there. What can we think of the intellect of a correspondent who imagines that such personal irrelevancy, error, and nonsen...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 February 1861

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE.   Sir,--When parties reply to a letter, they should answer   that letter, and not quibble over its minor points and intro- ductory paragraphs. In your issue of the 26th, appear two letters in reply to R. D. I, as one of the "discerning public," wish to say a few words respecting those two epistles. Both writers, doubtless hating the onus probandi, carefully and cautiously avoid the principal topic of R. D.'s communication. The first-signed "A Member of the Hospital Commit- tee,"--surely spakes for its author, whose very style and language (not green, but very like emerald,) are so well known that his real signature might as well have been ap- pended. As it is, it requires nO KNEELing, for a close inspection to decipher it. "A Mimber," &c. (I beg his par- don, Member I should have written,) no doubt is mightily pleased with his witticisms, which, by the by, are not origi- nal, seeing that a former number of your journ...

Select Poetry. SPIRIT MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 February 1861

SPIRIT MUSIC. I sit alone in my chamber At a close of a summer day, As the sun's last beams are gilding The light-dancing waves of the bay. .I hear the summer night-wind, As it murmurs over the sea; And 'tis laden with strains of music Of cxqtiisite harmony. 'Tis a silent spirit-music, - A:' ' so"lemn voiceless hymn, That softly steals through the casement Of my chaniber lonely and dim. Not in the choral anthems SThatswell through the lofty dome. Of son'ie hoary old cathedral 1)oes this gentle spirit come; N .. r 1rom the clanging trumpets That pour from the brazen throats, -?"tLike the sounds of a fierce tornado, • Their deafening martial notes. Scomies like a fiagiant perifume And fills with its tuneful sweetuess The soul, and lulls'it to rest. 'Tis lgorne on the light-winged zephyr. That follows the suinmer-ral n A nd soothes ~ih its inagie cadence Th'I e tlirolibbin;ibrow of pain. 'Thus as I sit ili my chiunbei', . Comes this spirit-music to mo, .

IN the Council, :the Consolidated Revenue Fund Bill, which provides for the expendi ture of the sums set down in the supplemen tary estimate for 1860, and for the. carrying on of the public service until April 1st, 1861, was read a second time. There was a little discussion, but no division on the question. The Census Bill was passed through ano ther stage, and its final reading fixed for Wednesday. The Assembly met at 25 minutes past two o'clock. Mr. Watt desired to ask the Secretary for Public Works,-If it is intended to extend the telegraph line to Burrangong, Lambing Flat, and if so, will the Government do so from Bathurst, by way of Carcoar and Cowra? Mr. Arnold, in reply, begged to inform the honourable member that no sum having, yet been voted for that purpose, the Government were not yet in a position to determine which line they would adopt.

COOMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 February 1861

COOMA,, From our ozvi Correspoandent. Beyond the general routine of business,. there is almost nothing worthy of notice. ' Trade for the last few weeks has been un usually dull. Storekeepers and others com plain much of the scarcity of customers, but, more particularly of money. Cooma,. like most other places, is suffering from the general:. depression of trade, and also from the reaction consequent on the failure of the diggings. For some time past we have been inundated with a certain class of dealers who are prepared to sell at any price, no matter whether these prices pay or not. You can see from this how the fair and honest trader has to suffer from parties pushing goods into the market, which they never intend paying for, so long as they can raise funds sutleiint for their present necessities. The greater portion of these goods are from Kiandra, Crackenback, and Twofold Bay. Some one it is evident must be . the loser. There is another class of dealers which I cannot overlook,-...
