THiE LATE MURiDER it AT ASPINWALL CbLON,; January 24, 1868.-Yesterday, the' examination of Jose Maria De Castro, one. of the murderers of Don Carlos' Fernandez and his` principal friend and companion, was. continued. On being interrogated' by the judge, he at first maintained a dogged si lence to the questions put to him. He' seemed very much depressed and complained. of headache. After several minutes of sul- lenness, he commenced by admitting that on the morning of Monday last he had oc 'casion to go below awhile, and that on his return to the room which he and the mur dered man occupied together in the Howard House, he found Don Carlos Fernandez as-. sassinated in his bed; that he gave no. alarm, but that he obtained an empty pack-. ing case in which he deposited the unfortu nate man, and that he then looked around in the street for some men to assist him in. disposing of the remains; that he does not recollect from whence the box came, nor does he remember who the parties are th...

A BUSH TRAGEDY. A ato5T distressing and melancholy. occur rence took place here (Wentworth, at the junction of the Darling and Murray rivers) on Thursday night last. A married man of the name of Goldsworthy, living on the township, and whose son was engaged herding the pound horses, had been told that he (the son) had injured a horse be longing to a person of the name of Mor gan; he called the boy to'account, and threatened him with a whip, and was pro ceeding to thrash him, when the mother in terfered and told the boy to run away.

REMARKABLE CASE OF TRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 March 1868

REMARKABLE CASE OF TRANCE. THE people living in'the vicinity of White land, John'son County,' Indiana, have re cently been very much excited over a matter which,- to say the least, is very strange. Several weeks since Miss Van Arsdale, a young woman -about seventeen years old, living at the house of a family near iWhite.. land;'in the capacity of a seivant, ias' taken sick with something like hysterics. She had 'beei-confined to heri'bed'a little over a week, when, to all appeaiiance, she died.' The body; however, did not entirely lose its wammtlh,'and a very slight pulse- remaiiied. The people with whom she was living stip-: posed that she was dead, and were making preparations to bury her, when the physician interfeicd, :forbidding any such step. After remaining in this- state -twelve hours,: consciousness returned, and the girl pronouniced herself much better. She "then went oni .to describe heir sensations' and ex periences during the trance, averring'that she had visited' heave...

A THRILLING RECITAL. TWO CHILDREN BITTEN BY A RATTLESNAKE AND A THIRD DROWNED. NEVER in our experience as journalists has 'it been our duty to chronicle an occurrence more-horrid-in its details thari the one we are about to relate. The sad- affair. that left a widowed mother childless,.,and,-;for 'the time being, almost bereft- of reason, ;happened about the 16th ultimo, in the ad joining county of .Allen, 'a short: distance from-the Warren county line,. and' in 'the vicinity of Anthony's Mill. The heart.. rending details, as related to us by persons of unquestionable` veracity, are about these:' -" Some two months since, Mrs Blanken ship, a lady or respectability, lost her hus. band from disease, and was left with three children, two interesting boys and a little infant girl just large enough to walk alone and beguile the lonely hours of the mother with its ,innocent prattle.

AN EVENTFIUL SEVEN YEARS TO COME. SFrom the New ur.k Evcning Post.

It is entitled " Coming W6nders, Expected between. 1867 anad 1875.'- --For the information of the cu-. rious, we set down here a list of the events which are to .'!.come off," in racing slang, between now and '1875. S-The first year is to witness the 'Na tional Restoration of the Jews to Pales tineby a Seven Years' Covenant or League, to be made between many of them and the Emperor Napoleon.'

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 March 1868

TO Tsa EDITOR. Si,---The recent disgraceful' scene, that oc curred in our Assembly brings forth ihe hoo. the Premier in a very awkward' position as Premier, Attorney-General, and-as th'e law 'at present stands-Grand Jury of the colony; and he cannot but be sensible that the hold ing of the three positions is anything but con sistent with the just administration of affairs: in regard to our political matters. The motion being carried for a prosecution, it will of course be instituted at once; but who can for one moment doubt but that. when a trial does take place the prosecutioni will be as nil so far as regards any punishment to be in flicted on the "naughty boys" who would fightjit out,' though rather unfairly'according to the English view of adjusting disputes. The motion to expel the offending parties would, if carried, have had more weight than twenty prosecutions, for the s:mple reason that Dhe discretionary power. will be be ex ercised, and. what will be a fine to these men of...

THE GUM FLAT MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 March 1868

THE GUM FLAT lMUIDEir. -° -2= Abridged trom the Ie'tern Poat. tarch 6. r- ril WE here publish such parts of the evidence relating to the atrocious murder as we feel ourselves justified in doing with due respect .a to delicacy and decency. There are of course i parts of the evidence which it is out of our power to publish, but sufficient will be found appended to stamp this murder as one of the most awful that has ever occurred in the annals of crime in either this colony or elsewhere. We may cursorily observe that this is the fourth murder that has occurred in this district during the last ten' years. The first was at the Murdering Hut, when I a man's head was chopped off by another; the second was a case where a man was 1 found tied up in his but, and stabbed in I several places; the third was the murder of Musson by Paddy Tom; and the fourth we now chronicle. All these murders were committed within a radius of six miles; but this last for horrible details is by far the worst. It w...

THE TORCHLIGHT. PROCESSION. Tre people of Sydney were aroused yesterday evening by a spectacle perfectly novel'in this part of the world.

SQUATTERS & FREE SELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 March 1868

SQUATTERS & FREE SELECTORS. THE action brought nearly two years since by Mr Chisholm, a squatter, at Collector, in the Goulburn district, against John Macau ley, a free selector, who had impounded certain sheep, the property of Mr Chisholm, from off his (Macaulcy's) grazing .right, will be tried at Goulburn assizes in the early part of next month. This is the third time that this action has been set down for trial, and postponed at the instance of the plaintiff or from legal obstacles, and Macauley has had not only to bring his witnesses twice from distant parts of the country at great expense, but also his counsel and attorney from Sydney in vain. He is now preparing to go to trial for the third time. The ex penses have been so heavy that he is all but ruined, and the gaining of the action can now be of little advantage to him as the land has passed into the possession of others. He is, however, determined to defend the. case to the last in order to decide the ques tion whe...

Our opinion is de cidedly against any such necessity existing, as a reconstruction of the ministry would in a great measure do away with personal invectives that have been too freluent. It remains, of course, with the present "train" (to rise an expression . quite coloriial) to decide what position they will consider as most applicable. to the present crisis. It. will be certainly most impolitic to attempt business as feeling at present exists; and wheliuther peccant members be punisied or not by the operation .of the law for past offences against dignity, it matters not so that the affairs of the country be not longer de layed.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 March 1868

Sin,-In answer to "Subscriber's" question pub lished in your last issue as to the origin of the word Quaker, as applied to a teligious sect-the reason is, I believe, this : George Fox, who is admitted to be the founder of this denomination, having seceded from the Protestant Church, left his native place Leicester, and'first attracted publio notice at Derby, about the year 1650. Here be was imprisoned for (as was then thought) profanely addressing the con gregations after divine service; and during his ex amination before the magistrate, he commanded the company to TItEMBLE at the voice of the Lord, wvlhence both himself and his followers were jeeringly called QuAK~Rttg,-- name which they retain to this day. " If my memory serves me right, many years since sauntering amongst the graves in BunIhill fields, I think I recollect seeing a grave-stone with this inscription, ," Here lies George Fox, the Foun der of the Sect called QUv.Etzs."
