Metropolitan. Sydney, February 19, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 February 1861

....t .0 titan. -o- (Firom our City Correspondent.) - Sydney, February 19, 1861. WHAT comment shall I make on the political events of the past week ? None more truth ful, none more hopeful, than the observation that the Free-selection Assembly, despite the presence of the " sound-and-fury-signifying nothing " member for Queanbeyan, the blus 'tering Buchannan, and the vulgar, loquacious Hoskins, can contrast favourably with any of its predecessors in business-like habits, com mon sense, the avoidance of personalities, and far surpasses them in the conviction that jus tice should be the basis of legislation. The moderation displayed in the discussion of the details of the land bills, for no men of sense will take notice of the ravings of the worthy trio above-mentioned, deserve the highest en coniums, and prove that the representatives of democracy have far more at heart the interests of their country than the oligarchial party whose every action was professedly guided byr patriotism....

LATEST FROM CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 February 1861

LATEST FROM CHINA. WE are in receipt of intelligence from China up to the 31st, December, being the latest news to hand. Peace had. been-finally and. definitely con cluded. Mr. Bruce had arrived at Pekin, and had been introduced to Prince Kung.' The troops had retired to Tiern Tsin, and the evacuation of Chusan was proceeding. Lord Eglin-had gone to Japan. Confident reports, that Mr. Atkins, British resident, was beheaded after the allies had evacuated Pekin, weere rife, and remained un contradicted. The French treaty had been published. It differs somewhat from the.English one. Pirates had captured a small vessel, and murdered' all the crew. The China papers express strong doubts of the genuineness of the Emperor's signature to the treaty. The Indian papers strongly criticise the conduct of General Pratt in Now Zealand, and recommend that an Indian general and Sheik troops should be, despatched to the seat of war. .

GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 February 1861

GUNDAROO.   (From our own Correspondent.) About this quarter there is nothing strange but the weather; we cannot depend on the same sort of weather for two days at a time. On Friday last we had a fearful hurricane: I never saw the like in the colony before. The wind blow at a furious rate, sending hailstones, which have done an immense deal of damage. In the gardens they chipped outlarge pieces from the apples and did equal damage to other fruit. From what I can hear, Mr. Styles will be the greatest sufferer; he had left an imn- mense quantity of lucerne to ripen for seed; and the hailstones have nearly thrashed it for him; he estimates his loss in lucerne seed a- lone at £400. When the storm commenced it blew from the west. It only lasted about half an hour; but it turned gently round in that time and blew from the east at the conclusion. It has made the bush appear as if someone   had commenced felling the trees for the pur- pose, of clearing. I hope we s...

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 February 1861

SAT URID4Y, FEBRU ARY 23, 1861. To every true and loyal subject of the B3ritish Crown it must be a source of siitisfhction .and relief to; hear of the decisive victory obtained by our brave trooias over a foe who has proved him self equal in every warlike' qualification, save in point of. experience and disci pline, to those with whom he closed in mortal. combat. The recent engage ment in New Zealand, and its immediate result in :a repulse and defeat of; the Maorics, will be attended with many advantages, and in all probability issue .ian the speedy termination of a long pending dispute, and the maintenance of BritishL rule in that country. One happy consequence will be, that the M 'ori race, who are fully conscious of the high character of their natural en dowmlients, . physical and intellectual, will be constrained to acknowledge their inferiority, in every respect, to the British. nation; and conscious of the satme, .will be only too anxious to bring to a close a war .in which th...
