-o TUESDAY, MARCH 12. TrHE Assembly met at half-past three. Mr. Hoskins presented a petition from cer tain inhabitants of the -northern districts praying that provisions be made for payment of members of Parliament. Several new notices of motion Were given by members. In answer to Mr. Cummings, the Secretary for Lands said the gold from Lambing Flat was at present brought to Sydney by the Southern escort, which was. found to the best mode of conveyance. Mr. Wilson obtained leave to bring in a bill to limit the liability of mining partner ships, which was subsequently introduced.

NEW ZEALAND. From the Sydney Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 March 1861

NTEW ZEAJLAAND. From the Syaney Empire. By the arrival of the Victory, we have New Zeala?id news to the 9th of March. The' fol lowing is l'rponihe correspondent of the Tara naki Herald. IIUIRANGI REDOUBT. Saturday, March 2.-A party of natives had the daring to show themselves to-day in an open space on the skirt of the forest, to the right of the Hu1nirangi redoubt. Being from 1800 to 1500 yards distant they thought them selves secure, and moved about very coolly, as if reconnoitring the ground; but two 8-inch shdlls thrown from the fort were seen to burst among them and they took instant.flight to wards Miatnitawa, probably not without loss as shells were still sent in their pursuit. The insurgents in and about the besieged pah re main as defiant as ever, and met the advance of our men with a very brisk random fire. Their rude fortress was, however, well scoured with round shot from No. 7 redoubt. One of the 65th (Private Fern) has lost three fingers of his left hand by the explosi...

Metropolitan. Sydney, March 20, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 March 1861

thtt opolit'n. -o (From our City Correspondent.) Sydney, March 20, 1861. Tan endeavour of Queanbeyan to remove the reproach under which she is now suffering, will tend to again raise her to that proud po sition, which she enjoyed among electoratcs, when she did herself the honour of electing as her representative Mr. Wim. Forster, and gloried in her choice before political honours were thrust upon him. I select advisidly the word endeavour, for Mr. Redman has signified his intention of snapping his finger at any requisition calling on himt to resign. Such conduct requires no expatiating on, but imperatively demands of Queanbeyan to per form her duty. The work performed by our Legislators during last week was not of that arduous na ture which justified their extending tlheir days of relaxation beyond Monday, but somehow or another when the Speaker took the chair yesterday a quorum could not be counted and business was postponed till to-day. Mr. Cowper was present and I was in hopes t...

Gems from Poets. THE BETRAYED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 March 1861

-o THE BETRAYED. iBy Sarah H. Bolton; from " Once-a- Teek." She sat alone, on a cold grey stone, Where the river made a desolate moan. The sycamore trees stood white and bare, Like sheeted ghosts in the dusky air. A black cloud floated along the sky, And a night-bird uttered a dismal cry. Sadly she thought of the innocent time; Wildly she wept for her shame and crime. Darker and deeper the shadows grow; He promised to meet her an hour ago. She sat alone, on the cold grey stone, And the river flowed with a sadder moan. She heard the hum of the distant town. The patter of dead leaves falling down. She heard the toad in the long dank grass, But never his tread-alas, alas ! The morning came with its golden light, To the sycamore trees so bare and white. The mists that float on the river's brim, 'Went up like the wings of the cherubim. The water-lillies so cold and fair, [hair. Were tangled with :tresses of long brown The osiers bent with a quiet grace Over a form with a still white face...

HOOD'S LETTER TO A CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 March 1861

HOOD'S LETTER TO A, CHILD. My dear Jeanie,- So you are at Sandgate. Of course wishing for your old playfellow, 1M- H- , (he: can play,-it's work to me) to help you to make little puddles in the sand and swing on the gate. But perhaps there are no sand and gate at Sandgate, which in that case nominally tells a fib. But there must be little crabs somewhere, which you can catch, if you are nimble enough; they are so like spiders, I wonder they do not make webs. The large crabs are scarcer. If you catch a big one with strong claws-and like experiments-you can shut him up in a cup board with a loaf of sugar, and you can see w'hether he will break it up with his nippers. Besides crabs I used to catch jelly fish on the beach, made, it seemed to me, of sea-calves' feet and no sherry. The mermaids eat them, I suppose, at, their wet water parties, or salt soirees. There were star-fish also, but they did not shine until they were stinking, and so made very uncelestial constellations. I sup pos...

Letters to the Editor.     - [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.]   TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--I was heartily amused at the ingenuity displayed by the mailman from Queanbeyan one day last week for happening to be in Micalago I had the exquisite pleasure of seeing that we had   truly "Jumped out of the Fryingpan into the fire." We naturally enough expected better things when the mail contracts were given to Wilson by the authorities; and looked for precision in the   arrival of our commercial and other letters--such I am sorry to say has not been the case, for the first arrival of the new contractor at Cooma with the mails was considerably behind time; the second trip proved more disastrous, for the mailman had to leave one horse behind quite knocked up, poor   brute! The following trip the mailman followed &am...
