LATEST GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
LATlEST GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. The Crown Prince and Princess of Prussia arrived in Paris on May 24, and on the 25th they were received by the Emperor and Empress. Their Royal Highnesses paid a visit to the exhibition in the after noon, and dined at the Tuileries in the evening. English, Swedish, Danish, and Prussian squadrons are expected at Cherbourg. A dinner was given on May 24 at the English embassy in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. The Duke of Edinburgh was present, and all the guests were English. Paris letters dated May 25 state that a Rastadt question is likely to succeed that of Luxemburg. France contends that Prussia has no right to keep a garrison there, and is said to have addressed a re monstrance to Berlin on the subject. Another report is that the French instructing officers in-the Danu bian principalities have been replaced by Prussian ones. - Moreover, there is a talk of negotiations for the cession of the grand Duchy of Baden to Prussia, a transaction ...
BARLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
BARLEY. (iFrom the Australasian.) THE culture of barley is less understood than. that of any cereal grown in Victoria, and until very lately the area under this grain was small, comparatively speaking. The. establishing of malt-houses and breweries in nearly every district of the colony has created an improved'demand for the grain, and we are glad to learn, from an annual increase of the area occupied by the better kinds of bar-' ley, that greater interest is being taken in it by our farmers. As the seed-time of this important and valuable cereal is now. at hand, a few remarks on its proper culture may. not be inappropriate. A few years since it was not considered a paying crop, not from any unsuitability of soil and cli mate, but because this grain required a somewhat different treatment to that given to the other cereals, and did not receive it. Barley, to be profitable, must receive better culture than one farmer in twenty ever thinks of giving. This grain, above all others, love...
LOSS OF THE GOLDEN SUNSET. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
LOSS OF THE GOLDEN SUNSET. (From tihe Newcastle Ch'onicle.) WE published a short time back a brief and very imperfect account of the wreck of ;the Golden Sunset, commanded by Captain' Tidmarsh, and which vessel sailed from this port, bound for San Francisco, on the 6th of last November. By the Panama mail, which arrived on Monday, the 1st instant, we received a letter from one of the passengers on board the Sunset, enclosing a full account of the wreck of the vessel, taken from the Honolulu Pacific Commercial Ad vertiser of the 9th February, 1867. As several of the passengers on board the Golden Sunset were well-known by people. in Newcastle, and as the captain himself was a great favourite here, we re-publish the account forwarded to us in full, together with some extracts from the private com munication of the passenger.before alluded to.. The extracts from the passenger's letter are as follow. He says :-" You: must, ere this, have heard of the loss of the Golden Sunset. We were t...
THE JAPANESE JUGGLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
TTHE JAPANESE JUGGLERS. (From the Times.) A COMPANY of acrobats, conjurors, rand jugglers from Japan have estab Slished themselves at St Martin's-hall, :where richly habited in their native :?costume, they go through a series ot Sfeats that ~ay be accepted as a spe cimen of the amusements that find favour in a region to which the atten tion of the public has of late been more than commonly directed. That *.they are a genuine Japanese there can be no reasonable doubt, inas * much as their testimonials are plainly :inscribed on their features. The jugglers tricks of the Japanese are the most remarkable, two of these ..eing of a kind altogether new to the London public. In one of them a large top, spun with a string on ex -:actly the same principle as a common .pegtop used by school boys, is made "to display a degree of docility that almost entitles it to be classed among the more intelligible members of the brute creation. The juggler throws it out with a force which enables it to rem...
FIRE INSURANCE.—THE GOULBURN CIRCULAR. To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
FIRE INSURANCE.-THE GOULBURN CIRCULAR. To the Editor of the. Empire. SiR,-Seeing in your paper of the 5th instant a para graph headed as above, intimating that a circular had been issued by a number of influential gentle men, inviting the co-operation of persons residing in Sydney and the southern districts in the promotion of a Fire Insurance Company, so as to thwart in some measure the injurious combinations of the Sydney insurance companies in their recent attempt to exact 25, and in many cases 50 additional per cent. premiums on new and renewable policies. To show the public the extortionate nature of this late combination, I need but point to the fact that I made a journey from here to Sydney, upon a recent occasion, for the purpose of effecting an insurance of £2000 upon my premises, stock-in-trade, and furni ture. After visiting several of the insurance offices, and undergoing a catechetical examination as to my antecedents, the nature of my business, the location of my premi...

MR. PEABODY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
MR. PEABODY. (Fron the S. M. Herald.) GEORGE PEABODY, whom the latest telegrams describe as on his way to England after a beneficent visit to his native country, i America, is descended from a good stock. His ancestors were amongst those who pre ferred the mercy of the wild beasts of the American woods to that of the religious bigots of civilised Europe. He is of English _:.extraction, but was born at Danvers, Mas sachusetts, on the 18th of February, 1795. He was early placed in business with a grocer, by his father, and . subsequently became managing partner in the mercantile house of an uncle, at Georgetown. The business increased. Branches were created at Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and ultimately in London, where he went to reside in 1837. In that capital he soon earned for himself a world-wide fame as a merchant and money-broker, by the exercise of all those qualities which are necessary to great and lasting success. His name became a sound and valuable guarantee in the,...

CUMBERLAND AND WESTMORELAND WRESTLING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
CUMBERLAND . ' AND WESTMORELAND WRESTLING. . :.. (Fronm the Pall MIall Gazette.) THERE are a good many, opinions in London as to the proper mode of observing Good Friday. There is one class to whom it is a day of peculiar solemnity i there is another which looks upon all :special observances as superstitious'; whilst, apparently, the great majority accepts it simiply as an extra holiday, free from some of the austere restrictions of the regular- London Sunday. A small section of this last class annually celebrates the day by an appropriate display of wrestling. Their feast is. held in the eminently respectable district of Islington, arid in the Agricultural Hall, over which Mr. Spurgeon's recent presence might be supposed to have thrown a kind of halo 'of sanctity. Very little flavour, however, derived from such associations seemed to be lingering within, its walls on Good Friday. It was filled ,by the antagonistic element of a sporting and even slightly horsey crowd. Amongst the la...

The Queanbeyan Age THURSDAY, JULY 25th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
" THURSDAY, JULY 25th, 1867. THE wretched condition of . the high road from Goulburn to Braidwood, the impass able state of the: unbridged .Shoalbaven, and the consequent, irregularity of the mail service and iinpeding of traffic, has had the sudden effect of pricipitating the inhabitants of. the latter town into a premature agitation for the adoption of a- new thoroughfare, by- which- they propose to meet the' Great Southern Rail why at the inconsiderable: village of Ma rulan, and thus, like the Jews :of old with their despised n'eighbours'an'd relatives, have no dealings withli the: Goulburn. Sa n-iaritans. Our. niighbours :mist take, care they do not, marry: in haste' anld repent in. leisure. Many a man -has :got rid of an old and tried servant, in. a' "iinoidinlt u of wrath on account of an: occasional: failig, and taken into his: employ, arin utried hand, only to discover that after: all' .the -".old broom" was the better.
