The Age. SATURDAY, MARCH 7th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 March 1868
SAr'URDAY, MARCH 7th. 1868. IT should be the duty of every person by his own example to improve our moral status in society; and this could most easily 'be donie by conforming strictly to the motto " Honesty is the best policy." But there are not many of the mass who understand the word "honesty" in its. real meaning- in all its bearings, its virtue and strength. The poet and dramatist, OTWAY, in one of his plays, thus describes Honesty :-" The soft easy cushion on which knaves repose and fatten:" and' again-" like wit, much i?lked of, not to be defined." And we Ihd in our social affairs that these words a;,e trily prophetic as regards the word l honesty." In political life we find but t:iwvl honest. men ;-they lack that inde pendnce which should guide their actions; .nd therefore 'they lose not only them '.elves, but at the same sacrifice their I rust at the shrine of their ambition. S:till, thlse~i're all "honorable men," as ?lhe inimimbrtal bard has written. It has ',een laid?tlh...

The Age. SATURDAY, MARCH 14th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 March 1868
SATURDAY, MARCII 14th, 1868. TiE frequent delays that occur in our Legislative Assembly operate very con. siderably against the general interests of the colony, for the reason that matters of importance are frequentlyhurried through, and measures passed which timely con sideration would have much improved. We need only refer to the existing Land laws, which are anything but satisfactory to the mass. We, of course, cannot ex pect anything on earth to be perfect; but now it has been found that the Crown Lands Alienation Act of 1861 has not produced so large a revenue as was then 'expected, it is high time that amendments should be passed which would be con 'lucive of so desirable an end. Further inducements should be held out for the selection of Crown lands, and terms brought within the reach of the small as the lar~ge capitalist. One great matter of cdhsideration for the well-being of our ,-olh?.y is that we require more wealth in .t:irculation to balance the amount of labour which ...

CORRECT TRANSCRIPT OF THE SENTENCE OF DEATH PRO NOUNCED AGAINST THE ý RE DEEMER. Translated from thie Xoniche Zeitrung. THE follUwing is a copy of the most mem orable judicial sentence which has ever been pronounced in the annals of the world, namely, that of death against the Saviour, with the remarks which the journal Le Droit has collected, and the knowledge of which must be inferesting in the highest degree to every Christian. Until now, we are not aware that it has ever been made public. The sentence is word for word as follows : Sentence pronounced by Pontius Pilate, Intendant of the Province of Lower Galilee, that Jesus of Nazareth shall suffer death by the cross: In the seventeenth year of the reign of the Emperor Tiberius, and on the 25th day of the month of March, in the most holy City of Jerusalem, during the pontificate of Annas and Caipbas, Pontaus Pilate, Intendant of the province of Lower Galilee, sitting in judgment in the presidental seat of the proctor, Sentences J...

TO TIIE EDITOR. txa,-Will you permit me through the me dium of your journal to call the attention of the police authorities to a nuisance, for which the Legislature has amply provided a remedy. I allude to the number of cows, cilves, and pigs which are prowling about the town in contiguity to gardens where green food is growing. I have endeavoured since residing in the town to cultivate my garden, but am thwarted ne arly every day in so doing. I find there are persons living in the neigh. bourhood who through the agency of their children actually remove the fences away so .as to admit of cattle, &c., into my ground. This morning I found in my garden, in which I have young lucerne and vegetables, two cows with their calves, the property' of a neighbouring publican, doing all sorts of damage by. their incursive propensities. The cattle (or some malicious character) in this instance knocked down several slabs to obtain possession of the coveted herbage, of which they partook wi...
