MARTYRS TO PUBLIC DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 February 1861

MARTYRS TO PUBLIC DUTY. WTVe (Geelong Advertiser) published lately two letters which had appeCarced in the Arus. The writer of the first' of. these designates, himself "One of the Outraged;" the second' gives his baptismal and patronymic as ' Tho mas A. Smith," and both these " communi cations"' are strictures upon the :proposed reduction of salaries in the Civil Service departments. We will take the case of Mr. A. Smith, because he asserts that before the fate of himself and- many others equally unfortunate as himself is sealed;, he ought to be allowed to offer a few. remarks upon the injustice sought to be inflicted on them. Un doubtedly. Before any man's fate..is sealed who would .desire to prevent :him saying anything he wished to say ? Mr. Smith says he has at this present time £400 per annum, a wife, four children (boys and girls he ex plains) and a servant maid: but that the Government propose to take £100 per annum off his pay, which will leave him £300 a-year. And Mr. Thoma...

G OUNDAROO.... (From a Correspondent.) V February 9th, 1861. Our harvest isi now gathered in, and upon the whole a very, abundant one.. Fruit also is very plentiful; such a good.a eason for that artidle has not been *known -foi many years. %Ve had a splendid Harvest-home Ball on Thursday night, the 7th inst., with a supper included, at the Traveller's Home. The music on the occasion was really charming; it being a still night it sounded sweetly in the distance. I am not certain as to the number of persons who honoured the occasion with their pre sence, but it must have been considerable, as they were obliged to have two sittings at the table. The quality'taking the lead, next the commoners. Dancing was kept up till a late hour under the verandah, the dancing-room not being large enough for the numlier present to step it out in style. Indeed the affair went off without the least unpleasantness, which is something to say.. for this wrangling neigh 'bourhood; and it is to be hoped the ...

Select Poetry. LOST IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 February 1861

LOST IN TIlE BUSH. (From the Freemnan'?s Journal.) At evening hour, around the homestead playing, In mirthful mood, the little one went straying, Lured onward by the red sun's setting rays, That glittered through the forest's tangled maze. The greed leaves shone, the tiny flowers were smiling That childish foot still further on.beguiling; The locust chirped;' and in the stately gum, The bees'were nestling with a drowsy hum. No sounds save those, so soothing and so ten der, ' Amid the fading hues of daylight's splendour. The silence gather'd thro' the deep'ning blue, Till solitude 'at length to sadness grew. Panting, his flight he stays, and round him peerng, KInows not the spot ; and then with sudden fearing, Darts .to-and-fro, with cheek more rosy red, To find the path th that home-to mother led. :Vithltimid eyes and colour quickly changing, B$3 terror hurried, he is farther ranging; The littlkfoice is beard in startled shriek, Now wildly ringing, now so faint and weak. SO 'mother ...

KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 February 1861

KIANDRA.     From the Alpine Pioneer. The usual weekly escort left the camp on Saturday with 389 ozs. 2 dwts. 6 grs., the smallest we believe which has ever left Kian- dra. For this however it is by no means difficult to account. For many weeks a great number of the sluicing claims have been en- tirely without water; numbers of the river claims have also from the same cause been unworkable. With sluicing and some river claims doing nothing, added to the few days' we have had, which will again put all to work. but which for the present has stopped opera- completely, it is very easy matter to see and understand why our escort, is so small this week. To-day it has been raining very   heavily, and should, it continue a few days more it will set matters right again. We are enabled, through the courtesy of Mr. Carmichael, to lay before our readers the re- sult of the quartz sent from Jackass Flat to Adelong, the produce of which is really very great,...

THE HISTORY OF DARBY O'SULLIVAN.* [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 February 1861

O'SULLIVAN. Father O'Leary and Captain M'Carty were walking, together through the 5 streets, of St: Omers, hen .they came to a house, at :the door .which a man was bawling,' in nthe French language, " Walk in, 'gentlemen, and see the great est curiosity ever heard of, a Russian bear who can speak, and dance, and sing, and in every respect is as intelli gent as a humani being." Father O'Leary wished to walk on, but Captain M'Carty insisted upon their going in to see so great a curiosity. Upon their entering the apartments wi here the exhibition was to be seen, they saw, at the bottom of a long room, a great cage,. in which a huge bear was reposing. Upon their approaching 'thel cage, the keeper, with a long stick, began to beat the animal in order to rouse him: Upon his get ting up, he commenced speaking some gibberislh, which the two visitors imme diately knew to be Irish. 'The keeper then said in French, "Come, ~r. Bear, give these gentlemen a song;" and, to their utter astonishlime...

COOMA. From our own Correspondent. Since writing you last wcekI:Cooina-.has been visited by one of those nocturnal floods: which I believe are generally expected at this season of the year. For the last three days of the previous week it rained incessantl'y ; the creeks in the neighbourhood of Cooma, as well as the Numarella and Bredbo, have risen be yond their usual height, thereby putting a temporary stop to all communleation with. other parts of the colony. No Sydney mail, of course ;-this we don't look for until it ar rives; and even then we are not sure ivhgt bags. it brings, as some are frequently left behind.

THE PLEASURE OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 February 1861

ONE of the most strongly-marked features of the English people is their indomitable spirit of in-; dustry, standing out prominent and distinct in all their past his tory, and as strikingly character-' istic of them now as at any. former period. It is this spirit, displayed by the Commons of Erigland, which has laid the foundations and built up the in dustrial greatness of the empire, at home and in the colonies. This vigorous growth of the na tion has been mainly the result of the free industrial energy of individuals; and 'it has been contingent upon the number of hands and minds from time to time actively employed within it, whether a.s .cultivators of the soil, producers'of articles of u tility, contrivers of tools and ma chines, writers of books, or cre ators: of works of art. And while this spirit of active indus try has been the vital principle of the nation it has also been its saving and. remedial one, coun teracting fiom time .to time the effec...

TO TIE EDITOR O THE GOLDE;N` AGE. : Sir,-In bush travelling 1 have had more ex perience than .many ; anid 'amongst other -things which have attracted .my attention during ity per ambulations, is the fact that the shepherds of Aus tralia, like their brethren of .other countries,. are given to reading whilst tending their flockes. I am aware that many sheepholders are opposed to this practice, arguing that the charms of the :new.spa per or book which the shepherd pores over so rivet. his attention that he cannot possibly mind his flock as he should. . Indeed, many, prefer as shepherds men who cannot read at all, because they shall not be tempted by. their love of literature to neglect their charge.
