Correspondence THE CRIME OF PERJURY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 February 1868

O otr4 sposd4nce THE CRIME OF PERJURY. TO THE 'EDITOR. Sin,-In your issue of the 8th I observe a case of perjury reported. by the Burrows correspondent to your contemporary the Yass Courier, and which was heard before a special attendance of J.P.'s at Burrowa. Your contemporary also publishes the comment of his contributor upon the fearful spread of the crime of perjury in this colony, and I must say that those comments are but too true; for whether proceedings be civil or criminal, we too often find persons offering themselves as ready to commit this fearful crime. If I am not mistaken, the maximum of punishment upon conviction of perjury amounts to five years' confinement, with hard labour. These extreme sentences have been passed by our judges, but still there seems to be no relaxation of the crime. Does it not behove our law makers' to introduce some measure of more stringent penalty? I think so; for it is now unfor tunately too common to find in every list or ,calendar of priso...

- oga a nd Distiqt a tes. A LUN?Ai PHENOMENON.-The new moon bad i somewhat strange uppearancd last Thursday night; but we ourselves observed nothing-Q beyond a dull. heavy aspect of the orb, with a dark stripe through her centre. Several persons who watched the planet narrowly have given us accounts more or less agree ing. with the subjoined, which we received yesterday afternoon:-- On Thursday evening last, the moon's appearance to an- unphilosophical eye seemed to predicate something ominous going on in that luminary. At about 9 p.m., when she was a few degrees above our hnrison a variety of apparent transmutations presented themselves. First the moon seemed to perform a rotatory motion ; then she would display a brilliant corruscation not unlike an artificial burning mountain; subsequently, as if un der the influence of some great convulsion, she. seemed to reel to and fro, and then suddenly dip her horns below the horison. Whether ihe above -was a mere optical illusion or no rem...

S ;.: Per favour of the Queanaeyas Age. To the Clergymen and Lay Preachers who signed the Petition. for the alteration of the Gundaroo Mail.' Gentlemen,--Having had the opportunity of pe rnsing a petition, and the signatures attached thereto, for the purpose of obtaining an alteration in the day of departure of the mails from Quean beyan to Sydney, via Gundaroo, from Toursday to Saturday, I was really surprised to find the names of gentlemen appended to it, who occupy the position that you gentlemen do, as teachers and shepherds of that flock whose Master has strictly forbidden them to do any manner of work on the Sabbath D)ay. And still, in the face of this, you sign a petition, the real object of which is to compel a driver, or drivers, to travel with the malils from 10 p.m. on Saturday till 4 p.m. on Sunday; and also to compel three postmasters to begin the sacred day of rest in their post-offices, opening and making up mail bags, and that without the least necessity, and only to...

REGINA V. PATRICK GRACE. LAND CASE ADJOURNED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 February 1868

REGINA v: PATRICK GRACE. S LAND CASE ADJOURNED. This case was partly heard on the 29th ultimo, and-adjourned, on the application of Mr Allman, for the examination of cer tain witnesses. Before the case was entered' into, Mr Allman called the attention of the bench to a clause in the Land Act to show that therc had been a contract for the land made to Grace. Mr Wilkinson,upon being applied to by the bench, said he had nothing to say against Mr Allman's remark at present, as no evidence had been given on the part of defendant to prove a contract. The depositions taken on the 29th January was then read over.   Mr Wilkinson submitted that there was no evidence in the depositions to prove a contract, and quoted from the 8th clause of the Land Act to show that defendant should have appllied to the Government within twelve months after the improvements had been made.   Mr Allman said there was evidence to prove that the land had been disposed of according to the t...

THE SHIP EARL DALHOUSIE ON FIRE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 February 1868

THE SHIP EARL DALHOUSIE ON FIRE AT SEA. THE British ship Earl Dalhousie, in com. mand of Captain Campbell, arrived yester day from London, and during the voyage had a fire amongst her cargo, which threat ened the total destruction of the ship, and the probable loss of every life on board. Like all fires on shipboard, its origin cannot in any way be accounted for. We learn the following particulars from an eye witness to what transpired during the eventful voyage of the ship to this port : "The Earl Dalhousie, with a general cargo and a full complement of all classes of passengers, sailed from the.Downs on the 10th November. Had a' good run down the Channel, but for the first two months out had very light winds and calms. Ran down the easting in 42 degrees south, with variable winds. All went well until the 21st January, then in latitude 40.40 S., and longitude 50.30 E., weather cloudy and gale from the' northward. The ship was steered S.E. by E., with a heavy sea on the port quarter...
