Local Intelligence.       -   POLICE COURT.--On Thursday a summons case of no particular importance was disposed   of. Yesterday, two men, James Maher and Michael Maloney, for using obscene language in the streets on the previous day, were seve- rally fined in the sum of £2 each, in default of payment one week's imprisonment. On the same day, Maurice Foran, alias Collins, a ticket-of-leave holder, was charged with hav- ing been illegally at large in absconding from his district in June, 1860. Prisoner had been sentenced by the Kiandra bench to three months in Goulburn gaol for larceny; and having arrived at Queanbeyan on escort, was identified by the chief constable.

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

NEW PROVIDENCE. From our own Correspondent. BY way of a change I send you a few lines from this miserable place, if you think it worthy space in the columns of your in- teresting paper. I cannot congratulate you on the choice made by the inhabitants of Queanbeyan res- pecting the person whom they have sent to represent their interests in parliament; nor in their choice of a postmaster. They were not satisfied with their former postmaster more than they were with Mr. Forster, and in both cases I think they have stepped from the fry- ingpan into the fire. Astonishing! "but true." On Sunday last   the subscribers to your valuable paper were agreeably surprised at the fact of their recei- ving the same on that day. It being the first time it has occurred; previous to this it never came to hand before Tuesday, for what reason we know not; as I am informed that it is al-   ways posted at Queanbeyan on Saturday mornings so as to be dispatched to Cooma the same day...

From last Thursday's Empire we extract the following important Telegraphic News from Lambing Flat. EXCITEMENT AT LAMBING FLAT ARMED DEMONSTRATION OF THE DIGGERS. On Monday afternoon the authorities   apprehended 15 of the ringleaders in the late expulsion of the Chinese from Lambing Flat. The prisoners were re- leased on bail, to appear next morning: At half-past 9 at night 4000 or 5000 diggers marched in procession to the   Police Camp, which they surrounded,   with the determination to rescue the prisoners whom they supposed to be in custody.

Next morning numbers arrived with firearms, which they kept discharging during the night. A collision with the police was expected by everybody.

WEST COAST OF AFRICA. FEARFUL AND BLOODY SACRIFICE.— [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

WEST COAST OF AFRICA. FEARFUL AND BLOODY SACRIFICE. The King of Dahomey was continuing his wholesale sacrifice of human life. The number already murdered at this one ceremony amounted to 1700; and many more await a similar fate, the king considering, that sufficient honour is not done to the memory of his late father until he has sacrificed 2,500. He had detained ten European traders at Abo mey to witness his fearful custom. The King has threatened to attack Abbeo kuta.

European Extracts. THE ROAD CHILD-MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

THE ROAD CHILD-MURDER.. It is not improbable that another in vestigation of this mysterious case may take place before the Trowbridge magis trates at an earlier period than an appli cation to the Court of Queen's Bench for a writ ad melius inquirendum can be disposed of. Mr. Hughes ,chief of the Bath police, with Mr. Inspector Norris, of that force, two officers of much saga city, have for some weeks been diligent ly engaged in prosecuting inquiries into the murder at Road-hill House, and their labours have been so far successful that they have traced out the important fact that a chest-flannel similar to the one found under the body of the child, was worn by one of the inmates of Mr. Kent's house. At present the flannel which was discovered with the child is in the custody of the Wiltshire con stabulary, and some hesitation has been manifested in handing it over to Messrs. Hughes and Norris for the purpose of endeavouring to procure its identifica tion. This obstacle has at last be...

FLORA'S BEAUTY. A SATIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

FLORA'S BEAUTY. A SATIRE. That Flora has a rosy face Quite worthy of a saint,' Is very true; but then 'tis clear. Its colour's one of paint. That Flora's hair looks very fine, As o'er her neck it falls,. All folks admit; but then 'tis known That all her curls are false. That Flora's smiles the stars outshino None venture to deny; But then all own that it is when Thick clouds obscure the sky. That Flora's teeth are pearly white Is generally known; .But then tho' strange, 'tis plain to all 11cr teeth are not her own. That Flora's voice is like a bird's All own who does it hear; But tlien all feel bound to admit The bird is chanticleer. That Flora has a mind well stored By none can be denied; For it by all'is known to be Full of conceit and pride. That Flora all the attributes Of Vbnus would posess If she had Venus' form and face All Flora's friends confess.

-0 BRITANNIA'S LAST TRIUMPH. To Britannia, sea-born power, Queen Regent of the main! Britannia hail once more! Again, again, Thou add'st another triumph to thy reign, And giv'st another bulwark to thy shore. Britannia, bail ! Again thou dost prevail, And mak'st the seas thy most obedient slaves Again, again, Thou prov'st thy wat'ry reign, And show'st thy right to rule upon the waves. Again, again,. By Science' fertile aid Thou to a native wonder givest birth Across the main To bear thy sleepless trade, And stretch thy commerce to the ends of earth. The smiles of peace .Thy pregnant powers increase, And fructify tlhy triumphs on the sea; And while thy rock Withstands the weary shock, Of waves, the Queen of Ocean thou shalt be. A mighty ark By British vulcans wrought Upodf the constant deluge thou dost send, That can embark A town with easy draught A furlong stretch her decks from end to end. To turn around A river's narrow bound She spurns, as would Leviathan a pond; A bay alone She ...

Borrowed Trifles. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

N orroedtaIrif ts. MATRIMONY.- A clergyman, who had in the lottery of matri mony drawn a share that proved to him worse than a blank, was just experiencing a severe scold ing from his Xantippe, when he was called to unite a pair in the blessed state of wedlock. The poor priest, actuated by his own feelings and experience, rather than by a sense of his canonical duty, openedcthe book and began, ' Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of trouble', &c, repeating a part of the burial service. The astonished bridegroom exclaimed, 'Sir, sir, youmistake-I came here to be married, not buried.' 'Well!' replied the clergyman, ' if you insist on it, I am obliged to marry you, but believe me, my friend, you had better be buried.' A person looking over the cat alogue of professional gentlemen of the Nashvill Bar, with his pen cil wrote against the name of one who is of the bustling order-'has been accused of possessing great talents.'
