Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
-0-o-- BLozDIN's WiFn.--Under the slack rope on which the bold adventurer is performing feats which are really terri ble to witness, is a carriage; "in it sits a woman, her face turned upwards, her eyes fixed, every line in her face ex pressing most intense and painful solici tude. She is the gymnast's wife. She knows as well as we do that a sudden spasm of vei'tigo, a momentary paralysis of one of the limbs, would vitiate even his iron nerves, overcome even his strong will, and hurl him from his airy height a crushed and bleeding corpse. - eNro ~ orkz Times. DISAPPEARIANCF OF A CAPTAIN AND CnREW.-A? communication from Scilly, gives the following:--" The French schooner Jeunne Rose, of Bordeaux, was met- with (in company with the French brig Marie Adele, of -Redon) about twenty-miles west from Scilly, on the 29th ult., with jibboom and fore yard gone, by the pilot cutter Agnes, of Scilly. It was represented that four of the schooner's crew had been lost over board, and that two men ...

Parliamentary. TUESDAY—FEBRUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
1 liantt igittg. o TUESDAY--FEBRUARY 26. The Legislative Assembly met at half-past three o'clock. Mr. HosloNs asked the Colonial, Secretary whether the direction of the military sent to Burrangoing would be confided to a civil or military officer. It had not yet been decided what officer should have the direction of the military; he would leave Sydney in time to overtake ' the troops, and most probably would not be a military officer. Several new notices of motion were given by members," and some other preliminary business gone through - Mr. Macleay moved in favour of a grant of £100 to compensate Richard Brett "and, Richard Heather for losses sustained by them by the sale of two horses detained for the pur pose of identification, on a trial of horse-steal ing. These horses were put out to livery by the chief-constable, and were sold to pay the liveryman's bill of upwards of £560, instead of being restored to the rightful owners.

THE AFRICAN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
THE AFRICAN EXPEDITION. TIE Cape Towtn .Argus says :-The feel ing of 'sympathy with. an exploring expedition, no less than a missionary party, has had the effect of creating a very strong interest in the plans 'and movements of the little comnpany who are now here on their way to the newly opened regions to the north of the Zam bezi. A well-attended meeting, at which Sir George Grey presided,, the Bishop of the diocese and the missionary bishop elect unfolded their views, and sub stantial tokens of hearty-good will and. cordial sympathy'has given encourage-: ment to the devoted band, and served to speed their departure; while a re markable coincidence occurred to give point and significance to the darker: and sadder side of the animating picture. In the very same column of the jour nals which announced the' meeting which was to speed the parting of the volunteers from the Universities, ap peared'ai appeal to to the Christian public in behalf of the survivors of a party of the London...

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
,~A TURlDA, AIRC C'II 9,. 1861. A 'lnArmHErt serious inconvenience to the p.,uhlic o'f these districts arises out of the recent 'change in the mail service. Instead of six mails, via Bungendore, per week, we have now but three. The ranson, we presume, is that .the compa iative f dilure of the diggings at Kiandra renders unnecessary the number of com nrunications which we have enjoyed for some time past. The arrangements un" der the late contract were bad,-the despatchl of':the mails to Sydney always taking place half an hour before the arrival of the. mails from Sydney, thus laying us under the necessity of waiting until the next day bethre our replies cduld be forwarded. Under the pre sent contnact the arrangements render the ineonvenience greater still. Instead of adopting the old timie-table, observed when we'form'erly had the' mails but three times a week, the authorities in Sydney .appear to have constructed a new time-table by' simply drawing the * pen over three clays of the ...
POLICE COURT. THURSDAY. (Before the Police Magistrate, H. Hall, Esq.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
P-OLICE COURT.. (Beforel the Police M4fagistiate, H. Hall, - THE DJOURNED ASSAULT CASE.--Patrlck Maher (out on ball),-Martin Ryan, and Tho mas Donobue..were ,brought.before the bench, for further hearing. This case was adjourned from last -Thursday, at. the request.of the prisoners, on .the. plea. that they were not prepared with. their defence.. They had failed to procure evidence in, their behalf, and the bench severely commenting on their miscon duct found the prisoners guilty of assault and sentenced them to pay a fine of £3 each with costs, .or in default, six weeks imprison ment. Maher and Ryan paid the amount, and the prisoner'Donohue, was walked off to the cells. LAiccnv.:-Log, a demure-looking China man, with a tail trailing to the ground, was charged by 'his fellow-countryman, A Long, with stealing 10/6 from his person.

GUNDAROO. March 6th, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861
GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) March 6th, 1861. Everything about here is very quiet; indeed I might say we should be quite dead, only that we enjoy a little fun now and again from letters appearing in your columns, and peti- tions being presented to the bench. Can you inform us where we could procure a genius so that we might get some comedies written by him on the doings of Gundaroo. For the inhabitants around the public-house keep the whole place alive, and their proceedings, if put together, would make a splendid play for a theatre. Without mentioning names I think the public will be able to judge who ought to be and who would make the best principals in it. Things in general are dull, thrashing is go- ing on, and in some few instances ploughing has commenced.

-NAEW ZEALAN.D. V ia Newcastle we have New Zealand in telligence up to the 15th February. :,We. extract- the following :--"At half-past two o'clock this morning Colonel Wyatt sent in *other shell from-the 8-inch gun to. do duty among the. natives. No .shots returned .by the enemy. Escorts, conveying water, provi sions, &c.; pass to and frio through the: Hui rangi every 'day,- but the natives have. not. ventured an attack.

The Golden Age. SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 March 1861
SATTUI?DA 1, jMA RCH 16, 1861. THE sorry figure which our representa tive makes of. himself in. Parliament, his displays of profound ignorance on the commonest parliamentary subjects, and, to crown all, his bare-faced loqua city, give ample scope for the criticisms of the public and the sarcastic re proaches of those who from the begin ning were opposed- to his return. I-Is warmest supporters are at length grown ut'.erly ashamed Hnd weary of him, and have to bear with patience and inward mortification the gibes .and taunts of their political opponents. This is hardly just, for who can be'responsible for the future conduct of any man? Those who returned hiln were fully justified, under their peculiar circumstances, in accepting any one who gave them a pledge that he- would advocate their principles and plead for their rights, although by so doing they displaced a represefitative of the ablest character, seeing that M?r. FORSTER was decidedly opposed to their views; and it is not the ...

-0---uY matt.` x TUESDAY, MIAnH 5TH . TUE Assembly met at half-past three. On the motion of Mr. Parkes, certain re turns relative to the resumption of private lands for railway purposes, by the Govern ment, were ordered. Mr. Parkes postponed the motion for in qi ry into the Public works department for a fvu"light. Mr. Robertson, ingreply to Mr. Dalgliesh,, stated that Mr. Cowper found; ,on Saturday; that the Chinese had all left Lambing Flat, and that affairs were quiet, and the Govern cent intended to send the troops on to Lambing Flat. The Registration of Deeds affecting Real Estate Law Amendment Bill, and the Inquests concerning Fires Bill, were read a third time and passed through all their remaining stages. The report of the Committee of the whole on the Pitt-street Tramway Bill was adopted. The I-louse then adjourned at twenty minutes past six.
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 March 1861
GOULBURN. (From our own Correspondent.) Through the change in the postal regula tions I omitted sending you any communica tion last week. This was annoying, because there:was something to write about.-we had the soldiery, the circus, and Mr. Black. Peo ple comlplain of bad times, you would not think them so if you saw the full attendance at such amusements. Recreation is necessary, and I am glad to find things are not really so bad after all, as evidenced by the harvest these caterers for our amusement must have reaped. We are now duller than ever, people "selling off" . and "clearing out" at great sacrifices seems to rule the day. The New Argyle cleared.at auction, to-day ; many things went exceedingly low. There is yet no news of the English Mail we are anxiously looking buot 'for :her arrival.
WEDNESDAY.—MARCH 6TH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 March 1861
WV'EDNESDAY.-IARCH TII. TnE Legislative Council met at eighteen minutes past fdur. Mr. Docker asked the Attorney-General for an explanation of the reasons of the Govern ment for sending Mr. Cowper to the Burran gong gold-fields, and what was the nature of his mission? Mr. IHargrave replied, that it had been found necessary to send a large military force to Burrangong -to maintain law and order, and it was considered proper that a gentleman of greater experience and public confidence than the -Gold Commissioner should proceed there, and take the general control, in the hope that thereby the civil authorities might be enabled to avoid a final appeal to the mili tary; and it was thought that, considering all circumstances, and considering, also, the great experience, moderation, and ability of Mr. Cowper, his going was the best course open. to Government. Some formal business was then gone through, and the House adjourned at ten minutes be fore five o'clock. The Legislative Assembly me...
KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 16 March 1861
KIANDR A. From a Correspondent.. Kiandra is fast becoming a depopulated, gold field. Every day brings fresh .and- en couraging intelligence from Lambing Flat; and every day lessens our population. The prospects for the winter look any anything but pleasant. The anticipated.rnsh.to Kian dra this summer has ended in smoke. The many thousands of pounds that.have been . laid out here in building I am afraid is an irrecoverableloss. I have no news to tell you : ` either in the shape of business or diggings, for there is none of the first, and very little of: .; the latter. Business men are for the greater part living on their means. The weather is fine and dry.
