THURSDAY—JANUARY 31. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 February 1861

TIURnSDAY-JANUEARY 3i1. In the Legislative Assembly, Mr. WTVEEKE made his financial statement, showing an an ticipated balance of £77,000 in favour of the revenue at the close of 'the present year. In terms of the' financial scheme the gold duty is to be abolished, anid the duty. on tea is to terminate at the close of the present year. To make up the deficiency that will be caused by the discontinuance of these imposts, the duties on spirits. are at once to be equal ised. Rum and whiskey,. and other spirits will be therefore ten shillings per gallon, the same as on gin*and brandy. Resolutions to this effect were carried' on a division by a majority of 31 -to 23' after a debate which lasted until half-past two in the morning. : .

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

KIANDRA. QUARTZ REEF, JACKAss FLAT.-.The follow ing, extracted from the Pioneer, corroborates the statement made by our correspondent last week, with reference to the immense richness of this reef :-The prospectors sent down to Adelong yesterday about 25 cwt. of stone, for the purpose of being crushed and ascertaining their value. Some are very sanguine as to the result, being of opinion that they will average about 400 ounces to the ton; but it is the opinion of several practical men, who have had great experience in quartz mining, that they will not yield near that amount. There is no question. but. that the stones are of a superior description, and should the party continue to raise large quantities anything approaching their richness they will have the best claim ever yet had on Kiandra. But the great question at present, and one which can not for a time be answered, is, will the reef prove a permanency? because no other claim but this has foulhd the quartz auriferous. Reilly an...

MICALAGO. (From a Cor)respondent) You and the public at large ought to know. that we, as well as others, suffer very materi ally through the abominable manner in which our postal arrangements are. carried out... In?, the first place, instead of being conveyed by vehicles, as,spcilfied in the contract, it is pac kced on horseback, and is kSidwn to be carried by the driver a considerable number of miles on his back, What a disgrace to the name of mail conveyance ! Not many days ago the mail driver from Cooma arrived at Micalago post-oflice,.and departed for Queanboyan with the'mail-bags.- After a lapse of hours the said mail driver returned to this post-oelice with the bags, stating that he could not get as many horses as Would carry him and the bags .to-Quealiboyan, and refused to take the bags any further. Mr. Cameron, our postmaster, thereupon hired 6n man and two horses at the contractor's expense, and forwarded the bags to their destination. On the following day the mail from Quc...

"OUR MEMBER;" OR, A NEW VERSION OF AN OLD STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 February 1861

"OUR MEMBER;"           OR, A NEW VERSION OF AN OLD STORY. BY OCCULUS. EXPERIENCE convinces. No matter with what affection we may cling to any particular hob by or idea,—no matter how we may persuade ourselves that such hobby; or idea is right, proper, and beyond dispute, when circum stances occur which render it impossible to be blind to the fallacy of our former views, we are compelled, nolens volens, to throw up the sponge, and admit that in supporting our former theories we were simply foolish and obstinate, and like Pickwick, we give in by paying the costs, while Dodson and Fog have a quiet grin at us. We must be convinced. When I say we, I mean those who with a view to the better representation of the district, sent in "Our Member,"—sent him in in spite of   the opposing members of the upper-class minority—which minority, by the way, is in dulging in a very nice, quiet, and satisfactory laugh in thei...

[We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our   Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] TOWN CLOCK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--Your paper of Saturday week in its leader urged upon the people of Quean- beyan the necessity of having a town clock. Since that time although many have endorsed the opinion conveyed in that article, up to the present time no steps have been taken in the matter; nor is it likely, as we are too apt to regard the old adage, "What is every man's   business is no body's." This should not be so, for I believe the difficulty of collecting 50l. or 60l. would not be great. Quean- beyan is never backward when solicited to "dub up" for any good cause, and would do so in this case if there was a movement made. Where, then,are our townsmen who regard time as money? Let then procure the proper time, and a better regulated time will govern all alike, and will go   "For ever, never; never, ...

PUBLIC RECREATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 February 1861

PUBLIC RECREATION.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--Recreation is necessary to the health, and even to the very existence of men. There are many people in the world who do not take recreation be- cause it is too much trouble. But how many more are there who literally pant for it, and are unable to obtain it. Take for instance, the inhabi- tants of New South Wales, those in the interior of the colony, such as the districts in which we live, there are hundreds of people confined to busi- ness from Monday morning to Saturday night, without the least intermission, which must natu- rally deteriorate the health. The great secret of health is keeping the blood in rapid circulation. There are many noble games, which if universally practised would do more good than all the physic in the world, including Holloway's Universal Re- medy. As one of these games let us take Cricket, which in this district is unfortunately on the decline, compared with past years. I have seen a ...
