RETURN CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 March 1868
RETURN CRICKET M1A'TCII. A RnETURN match between the Queanbevan: and Gundaroo clubs came off on Saturday, the 14-lth instant, upon the ground of the former. The wea ther throughout the day was cold and cloudy, and threatened for rain; but fortunately none came.. The Gundsiroo men had the choice of innings, and sent their opponents in first, who managed by steady play to run theia score up to 87. The Gundarooites then took their place at the wickets, and succeeded in scoring 100, thus having a balance of 13 runs ta their credit towards the second innings. Not having .made an early commencement in the morn ing, the hour was late when the two first innings were piayed out, consequently it was feared that there would not be sufficient time*to finish the match. However, after a slight pause the-Quean heynnites again handled the willow, and retired with the score of 70, thus leaving their opponents 57 to win the game, towards which they succeeded in scoring 32 runs, with no wickets down, ...
QUEANBEYAN ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 March 1868
QULANB3lYAN ANNUAL IRACES. TnE Quennbeyan annual races took place on Tues day and \Vednesdav last, and on tihe whole may be coisidered ia satisfactory meeting. The weather was gloriously fine, a pleasant refreshing breeze undu lating between the sun's ra3 s, and cooling the levered atmosphere. A few showers of rain would have been a blessing to lay the dt.st, which whirled up in a cloud like the train of a retreating army. The attendance was but a tidr average on the first day-few lady equestrians gracing the sports with their presence ; but on the second day they shone out in all colours-sume in blue-"? dark, beautifully blue,"-some in the pure green of E;meral?'s loved Isle, and others " blossomed in purple and red." Few disputes arose to mar the harmony of the meeting. The stf.-.ards and other officers exerted themselves to their utmost to give satistlactin. and the thanks of the sporting community is due to them fir the able manner in which they periuI med their onerjus.duties. ...

THE GREAT YELLOW STONE WONDER, "THE VALLEY AND PASS OF HELL." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 March 1868
THE GREAT YELLOW STONE WON- DER, "THE VALLEY AND PASS" OF HELL." A CORRESPONDENT of the Cincinnati Com- mercial, writing from the "Headwaters of the Yellow Stone, Miontana," gives the fol- lowing description of the " Valley and Pass of Hell" in that territory :- "And here, from the spot on which I stand, with my companions on this explor- ing expedition, tracing my notes, I drink in the views, so weird, so passing strange, that even in my wildest dreams never aught like this was seen. As daylight is dying on the Yellowstone hills, the Sun melting down into the verge of the horizon, shoot- ing his slanting rays far into the gloom of grotesque cliffs, and lingering upon the loftier peaks, converting their rugged sur- faces into purple and gold, the islands in the river swell bold and beautiful in the rosy light, while yonder distant cone-like hill stands against the sky a conspicuous mass fringed with fire. The gigantic mountains to the west cast their shadows far down into the silent...

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 March 1868
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-The disputed question whether free-selectors can impound off their pre-emptive leased land is soon to have a trial-the case Chisholm v. Macauley is to have a hearing at Goulburn on the 9th April next. I believe no trial since free-selection com- menced has excited so much interest from both par- ties concerned. The plaintiff in this action-a rich man-has had the trial I believe twice postponed through legal or other causes, while the defendant, though only a poor free-selector ,has to be the suf- ferer, having to collect and pay his witnesses, and also bringing counsel and attorney from Sydney expressly on this trial. 'The free-selectors were ap- pealed to by the committee of the Protection Asso- ciation, Sydney, for subscriptions in ald of this trial, and-I am sorry to say that I have just seen in the Empire that the sum received was only about £100. It astonished me that that was all the free-selectors could afford, when they must know that the decision case mu...

ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE H.R.H. PRINCE ALFRED, AT CLONTARF. (From the Sydney Mail.) IT is with the deepest sorrow that we have to announce a most determined attempt to assassinate his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. When the Prince left the luncheon-tent, at the Sailors' &nbsp; Home Pic-nic, he escorted the Countess of Belmore to the door of the Royal tent, and then turned to converse with his Excellency the Governor, the Chief Justice, and Sir William Manning. They remained talking a few seconds, and then his Royal Highness and Sir William Manning sauntered across the green towards the clump of trees bordering the. beach, and under which the Galatea Band was stationed. The subject of con- versation was the Sailors' Home, and his Royal Highness, to mark his appreciation of the institution, handed Sir William a chegue as a donation to the institution.

ANvWERs TO CORRESPONDENTS. QItKEREn.--The word " Quaker" is one of derision used towards the members. of a religious body called tae Society of Friends. In the middle of - the 17th century, when a large number of con scientious men secededd from the Church of Eng .land, George Fox, one of thein, became the leader of a sect bearing the above name. This sect was remarlkable for the faicial contortions and tremu lous mode of extemaporaneous prayer adopted by some of its members:-hence the soubriquet " QUArEtc " William Penn, who in 1688 founded the State of Pennsylvania, joined the above soct, for which, and preaching against the Church of England, he was committed to the Tower by his own father, who was a minister of the Established Church at .that time.
