TH-iE ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF TlHE PRINCE. Fronm Ie Empire. O'FAIlRELL IN. GAOL. Pa'ties wvho have held conversations with O'Far roll since his committal for trial, all agree in- repre -senting, him as a. person of" great conversational powers, and .as very willing.to-discuss thie subject of Fenianism at almost any length when introducedto him by his visitors, although he, as-.a general rule, studiously avoids any reference which would give a cl:ie to the names or residences of his associates .in the colony or elsewhere. His remarks on Fenianism have hitherto been of a general character. He has frequently spoken of the ." Fenian Government" as if it were a regularly constituted authority He says that the Fenian power is a government by stratagem, as opposed 'to a government by force-of ideas against facts. -There has all along been.a remorka ble consistency in his statemeiits as to his being under an obligation to assassinate the Prince. - He stated on Tuesday that he had delayed...

THE GUNDAROO ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE YASS COURIER. (Per favor of the Queanbeyan Age.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 28 March 1868

THE GUNDAROO. ROADS. TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIE YASS COURIER.. (Per favor of the Queanbeyan Age.) SIR,-Some time ago, our member, L. F. -De Salls, Esq.; in a letter to Mr Fraser of this place, as wel as in a letter to the Queanbeyau Age, stated that he never made a comparison of the two roads, viz., the Marked-tree line and the Boro road. Now, Sir, in the cause of truth, I have thought it my duty to pen the following remarks, as I consider Mr de Salis's denial reflects on my truthfulness. It will be a fortnight on Friday, the 27th instant, since I wrote Mr de Salis a long letter, reviewing the conversation that took place between myself and him, and asking him to do me the common justice of contradicting what he had written to Mr Fraser and the Queanbeyan Age, as I believe it would be impossible for MIr de Salis to forget the conversa- tion, after my bringing all to his recollection by writing him nearly a fortnight since. But as I have now waited a fortnight, and there is no reply, the ...

CANDID. Ma, dear, Captain B. has been, He brought me this bouquet, His manner was so charming, He had so much to say. He asked if you wern't within, Said he was so sorry, Spoke of last night's concert, Called it-" really jolly." Be promised me a poodle; Forced me to sing the song-- "Dearest, do you love me now." (He stayed not very long.), He left this book of poetry-- His MS., mama, dear; He wrote it all himself, mama, Oh ! here's a sweet idea: " Lines to a lady weeping " (Who can the lady be ?) " To Julia --- , on her marriage;" And a " Sunset at sea." I knew he was poetical; He quotes from Byron oft; Don Juan is his favourite; His voice is sweetly soft. He read from darling ' Manifred ' (" Astarte" is his pet): He made me cry--the cruel man, I think I hear him yet. Next quoted he from Shakespeare;. In that he was so grand; He looked the noble Roman, As he erect did stand. Then changed he into Romeo; Full of poetic love; He asked me to be Juliet-- (Ma, I could not move!) 'Twas nat...

[PER GREVILLE'S TELEGRAM COMPANY] Tuesday, March 31st, 9.35 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 April 1868

[PER OREVILLE'S -TELEGRAM COMPAr]N Tuesday, March 31st, 9*35 a.m. THE trial of O'Farrell was resumed yes terday. The witnesses who proved the attempt ed assassination were not cross-examined. In the evidence for the defence, the prisoner's sister (Mrs Allen, of lMel bourne) and others attempted to prove his insanity. The general impression is, that they failed to do so; and proved only the prisoner's irascibility in consequence of his pecuniary losses, and that he had been afflicted with delirium tremens. It came out in evidence that he left. Ireland when very young; that he studied law at Melbourne, and then studied for the priesthood; that he abandoned both, and became a storekeeper at Ballarat. The Crown called numerous witnesses to prove the prisoner's sanity; and that lie had spoken favourably of the Clerk enwell explosion, and of Fenianism gene rally. The trial is unconcluded, and. will: be resumed this morning. G p.m. O'Farrell's trial is concluded. 6p.m. The Crown produced o...

THE CHILD'S WISH; I want to be an angel, And with the angels stand, A crown upon, my forehead, A harp within my hand; There, right before my Saviour- - So glorious and so bright I'd wake the sweetest music, And praise.Him day and-night. I never would be weary, Nor-ever shed a tear, Nor ever know a sorrow, Nor ever feel a fear ; But blessed, pure, and holy, I'd dwell in Jesus' sight, And with ten thousand thousands,' Praise Him both day and night. I know I'm weak and sinful--: But Jesus will forgive, For.many little children Have gone to heaven to live. Dear Saviour, when I languish, And lay me down to die, O send a shining angel To bear me to the sky. Oh, there I'll be an angel, And with the angels stand, A crown upon my. forehead, .A harp within my hand; And there, before my Saviour, So glorious and so bright, I'll join the heavenly music, And praise Him day and night,

The Age. SATURDAY, APRIL 4th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 April 1868

S.ITURD.i?, APRIL 4th, 18'8. T:"E iTreaison Felony Act, a which has now' become the law:of the land, is one which, though putting in an apliearance at a time when. education ought--to operate as a preventative for a statute of the kind, yet, from the growing disposition to rebel lion in the mother country, is rendered highly necessary in this colony as forming part of the British empire. The public mind will 'not rest until the last vestige of this Fenian--which is only another name for assassination-movement is destroyed. It is not diffcult to trace the present se ditious movement. The late civil war in America, it will be remembered, brought together a very large number of a certain class of which, at that period in particular, it might have been justly said, its mem bers are of no use to themselves or any one else. For the love of lucre these men were ready to enter into any emergency for warfare. That they were invited to join the Confederate army there can be little doubt. Besi...

He (Mr Brennan) did not know' where prisoner came from, who tie was, or how he was occupied, but directly he had learned what the prisoner had stated he ordered his arrest. So long as he (Mr Brennan) was in the police, he would put the act in force: it might be called a stringent act, but with that he had nothing to do, be was deter mined to do his duty;'whoever he might, please or offend, he was determined to put.an.end to all such work as had been going on. -It was not right in these times of alarm to permit person...

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 April 1868

TO T?HE EDITOR. Sin,-In reference to an enquiry made in your's a few issues back as to the origin of the word " Qua ker," I beg leave to inform your correspondent that we have not any authentic authority upon the sub ject:.but I m?ay state that the word Quaker is now obsolete, for the reason that any memuber of the So ciety of Friends is now addressed accordingly. As religionists, their example is worthy of being fol lowed. We do not hear of any disturbances origi nating or carried on by that body of Christians; and it would be rare indeed to finud one of their number guilty, legally or morally, of any act calling for the intervention of law. I believe some years since a convict named ''awell was executed in Aylesbury,in England, and he had been a member of the Society of Frieids. This body have done much good to wards the extension of civilization, and the " Quaker city " still stands pre-eminent in the Northern States of America, Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, where that great man ...
