RANDWICK RACES. DERBY DAY—SATURDAY—AUGUST 31. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

ItANDWICK RACES. DERBY DAY-SATURDAY-AUGUST 31. (From; the Empire.) THE interest in; the races of this meeting .was not so manifest for some days prior to the Derby Day as that displayed before the last autumn races. This is, attributable to various causes, the principal one no doubt being the comparatively depressed state of the colony consequent upon the recent floods. Another reason for a falling off in the interest is that the field of horses named for the spring meeting is not equal to the list that was put forward last autumn. The Derby Day is generally well attended, but the attendance on the course on Saturday was not nearly so large as might have been anticipated. When the first race was run there could not have been more than from two to three thousand persons present; but as the afterrioon advanced they increased to double that.number. The day was beautifully fine, and the course was in splendid condition, for notwithstand ing the warm dry weather we have had lately-the tu...

CURIOSITIES OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

CURIOSITIES OF JUSTICE. (From Chambers's Journal. THERE seem to have been two kinds of criminals who formerly refused to plead to their indictments--the one, men of property, who by suffering death by pressure instead of by hanging preserved their landed estates to their children or heirs, which would not have been the case had they pleaded and been found guilty by the jury. The other class were ignorant, determined men, who foolishly imagined that by obstinately re fusing to plead they should eventually escape the punishment due to their offences. Where no argument could induce a man to plead, the judgment of the law was read over to him as he stood at the bar. It was thus worded:-" That the prisoner shall be sent to the prison whence he came, and put into a mean room, stopped from the light, and shall there be laid on the bare ground, without any litter, straw, or other covering. * *He shall lie upon his back, his head shall be covered, and his feet shall be bare. One of his arms ...

AN ARROWROOT FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

AN ARROWROOT FARM. (From the Brisba,ie Ierald.) ON Wednesday last we had the pleasure of paying a - visit to that rather celebrated farming settlement--Oxley. Probably few localities can be found in this colony that have had more ups and downs than have been experienced here. At one time it was thought that the only preliminary step to make a fortune in farming was to obtain a farm on Oxley Creek. At another time we had the melancholy spectacle of hard-work ing, honest farmers, -actually soliciting aid to enable them to -purchase seed for their ground, their all having been swept away by a devastating flood. To the honour of Brisbane their petition obtained a certain amount of attention; and to-day the prospect is of a very different character. Oxley Creek can compare favourably with any other farming district of the colony in every other respect but that of live stock, the want of which has been, and continues to a great extent to be, the weak '.point in the farming economy of the ...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 7 September 1867

APPREHENSION OF BUSHRANGERS.--Information was received in town on Monday evening. of the arrest of three of the:bushrangers who have been carrying on their depredations at the Levels and the Lower.Murrumbidgee. They formed part of a gang of fire, of whom " Blue Cap " appears to have been the leader. The names of those captured are. "Jack-the-Devil," Duce, and Jemmy. an abori-   ginal. The former must not be confounded with Tasker, who also bears the same soubriquet, and who was released from Goulburn gaol last week. The aboriginal had, previous to joining the gang, enlisted himself in the ranks of crime by committing a rape on the person of a married woman at Narra- burra. It will be remembered that after the attack on the Narrandra mail, within three miles of Nariah, when several shots were fired on both sides, the bushrangers were so closely pressed that they had to retreat towards the Levels, with the topo- graphy.of which they were better acquainted. Sub- sequent to...

SANTA ANNA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

SANTA ANNA. (From the New York Tribune.) SINCE the Mexican war of independence, in 1821, there have been only two governments in the unhappy country on our south-west border against which Santa Anna has not headed an insurrection. Those two are Maximilian's and his own. He led the revolution which compassed the overthrow of Iturbide; rebelled against Pedraza in the interest of Guerrero; against Guerrero in the interest of Bustamente; against Busta mente as an ally of his old enemy Pedraza; and after holding the Presidency himself for several terms, went into exile in Cuba in 1845. He got back to Mexico by cheating the American government into the belief that he would favour the independence - of Texas; but no sooner had he reached his capital than he raised his voice for war, and on the tide of national enthusiasm which the prospect of hostilities aroused, he was floated into the Presidency. The choice of another as his successor in this office while he was in the field against Scot...

MAXIMILIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

MAXIMILIAN. (From the Times.) THE unhappy Emperor has shared the fate of his chief associates, and the renovated republic of Mexico is stained with the blood of the dethroned Emperor. The blood will cling to the nation as well as to the man who has ordered it to be shed. Juarez is but a type of the race, which, since the sovereignty of Spain was with drawn, has ever alternated between des potism and anarchy, and, is now once more free to follow its half-savage instincts. Like the great majority of those who are called Mexicans, Juarez is an Indian, without, it is said, any admixture of European blood. He has shown that he has energy, courage, and perseverance; but to look to him for mercy, gentleness, regard for a fallen enemy, and such-like virtues, whether Christian or chivalrous, would be futile. He belongs to a party whose usual recklessness and dis regard of human life have been heightened to the extreme of savagery by the conflict of the last four years. This party, again, rep...

[REUTER'S EXPRESS.] LONDON, July 2. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

[REUTER'S EXPRESS.] LONDON, July 2. -Discount, 2T; consols, 944 ; account, N. The Panama mail arrived on June 27th. The general meeting oif the Panama Company will be held at the London Tavern on the 12th July. It is stated that from exceptional causes, which will be fully explained in the report, a loss has been sustained in connection with the com pany's local lines in New Zealand, which will prevent the declaration of a dividend; but that the Panama service has been worked at a profit from the first, and the traffic is increasing. The Queen in person opened the Royal Albert Orphan Asylum, near Bagshot, on the 20th of June. The revenue returns for the quarter show a net increase of £318,261 over the corresponding period of last year; and of £232,405 over the same period for the year previous to the latter. The increase is general in all the departments of revenue save the property tax.

LATER EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS. (From the Emnpire.) THE P., N.Z., and A.R.M. Co's steamship Kaikoura, in command of Captain Thomas, delivered the Eng lish mails via Panama, at Sydney, last night.. The detention of the mail is accounted for by a succes uion of heavy adverse gales previous to reaching New Zealand. Our English papers by the Kaikoura are from London to the 2nd July, New York the 11th, San Francisco the 9th, and Panama the 24th of the same month. She Left Panama at two p.m. on the 25th July, and had very fine weather and light easterly winds until her arrival at Opera Island; but during the passage between that island and Wellington, she met with some strong W. and S.W. winds and heavy sea, which somewhat delayed her. Called at Pit cairn Island on the 10th, and passed Opara on the 13th after dark. Her cargo consists of some three hundred packages, chiefly for Melbourne and Sydney.

THINK OF ME. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

THINK OF ME. THINK of me, dearest, when the world is sleeping,   The bright stars gleaming from on high, When the sweet moon her lonely watch is keeping 'Midst the dark azure of the evening sky. Think of me, Helen, when we gaze together On yon bright crescent from the wood-crown'd hill; Can I forget thee and those hours ? oh, never! Deep in my mem'ry they linger still. Think of me, dearest, in the early morning, When the gay birds soar forth to meet the sun, When his first rays are brilliantly adorning The diamond dew upon each green leaf hung. Forget me not, though we should meet no more, When age has dim'd the young light of the heart; Already earth's dark shadows round me lower-- Youth's happy years roll onward and depart. Still think of me, should e'en the green grass grow Upon my grave; if thou caust seek me there, A tribute of thy tears, dear girl, bestow-- Breathe o'er the tomb for me a hallow'd prayer. BERTHA.

DREADFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

DREADFUL RAILWAY ACCIDENT. (From the Times.) ON Saturday forenoon, June 29th, a very dreadful accident occurred near Warrington. The twenty-three minutes past ten train from Liverpool to Birmingham and London left Bank Quay station at twenty-five minutes past eleven, taking up several pas sengers, and on approaching Walton Junc tion the driver saw ahead a coal-train, which efforts were being made to- shunt on to the Chester line. He did not deem it necessary to slacken speed, not doubting that the way would be clear. The coal-trucks, however, had scarcely left the main line when the passenger-train reached the points. The points were not turned, and the passenger engine rushed into the coal-trucks. The driver and fireman escaped with compara tively slight injuries, having, we suppose, jumped for their lives when they saw a collision inevitable, and the passenger-engine was driven right into the breaksman's van of the coal-train, and firmly lodged there. The first two or three of the...

THE YELVERTON CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

THE YELVERTON CASE. Mucn interest was excited - on the 17th in the House of Lords, in consequence of an announcement that Miss Longworth would appear in forma pauperis before the House, and would plead her own cause before their lordships. The case came before their lordships on a very curious point. The question whether a marriage had taken place between the parties having been determined, by their lordships in the previous appeal adversely to Miss Long worth, or, as she still claims to be, Mrs. Yelverton, she applied to the court of ses sion in Scotland, to refer the matter to the oath of the respondent, the -Hon. Major Yelverton, eldest son of Vicount Avonmore, whom she claims as her husband. The court of session having refused her applica tion, the lady lodged the present appeal. The law lords present were the the Lord Chancellor, Lord Cranworth, Lord Westbury, and Lord Colonsay.

LONDoN, June 17. TiE week has been marked by the intro duction -of two new topics of discussion which, while only (though in some cases broadly) hinted at by the newspapers, have been excitedly canvassed in every section of London and provincial society. The first of these topics has been nothing less than the abdication of Queen Victoria. The immedi ate cause of such a subject being discussed has been a very smart article in one of this week's impressions of the Thunderer, in which it was strongly hinted that if her most gracious Majesty did not more fully enter into the duties of her position there was but one course open-abdication. But why?' What has she done? you will naturally ask. What are the terms of her impeachment? Oh ! th...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867

VICTORIA. EDWAnD BATHTRST, the notorious chevalier d'indus trie,- whose adventures have been recently detailed, has been sentenced to two years' imprisonment un der the Vagrant Act, it having been found necessary to alter the charge, from the fact that although Bathurst has been guilty of swindling a large num ber of victims out of their money, he so cleverly laid his plans that the information charging him with fraud could not be sustained. The unfortunate indi viduals who have complained of him are Thomas Alfred Phillips, who gave him £10 security; Thomas William Guest, gardener, who deposited £30 with him; William Cutting, draper, who disbursed £20; Robert Wyatt, waiter, who left £40; and Francis Murray, £10; but we believe these are only a few of a large number, for he has received several hun dreds of pounds, and what he has done with the cash is a mystery, for not a shilling was found in his luxu riously-furnished offices in 76 Collins-street. Mr. Sturt in sentencing him to tw...
