TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 March 1861
TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--Allow me to compliment you on the tone and independence of your leading re- marks of Saturday last. There is no one who has perused the public journals since the assembling of Parliament that can feel otherwise than embarrassed in mind at the conduct of the member for Queanbeyan. &nbsp; In fact his equal is not to be found in the history of colonial parliamentary men. I would suggest that some of his constituents, especially his proposer and seconder, should call a public meeting with a view of preparing a requi- sition calling upon him to resign. Then, if Mr. Redman will not heed the requisition, all that can be said is, that we can no longer look upon him as our mouth-piece and representative. I am, Sir, ONE WHO VOTED FOR REDMAN. Gundaroo, 19th March.

COOMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 28 March 1861
COOMA. From ozir own Correspondcnt. IN my last LIomplained of the non-arrival of the Golden Age that week. I have again to complain of the same thing. Up to the time of my writing, no paper has arrived of Satur day last. I do not know with whomrthe fault lies, whether with the post-offices or?younself; but you must be aware that such irregularities are calculated to disappoint your readers, and hurt your interests in this district. I hope you will see to this. &lt;[For an explanation of this matter We refer our correspondent and readers to a paragraph in our local columns.] We have been favoured with a visit from Mr. Black the vocalist.during the past week, and last evening. It is superfluous for me to say that his, performances have given the greatest satisfaction to all. Each'house was a bumper. The amuping anecdotes, and the history of the pieces. sung, coupled with a 'flrstrate address and the feeling displayed in the singing, could not fail to arrest the atten tion of e...

Mr. Cowper then entered, at considerable length, upon thd particulais of the various interviews which he had held with the representatives of the mining population, and also of the cir cumstances which had given rise to the pri mary rupture between the Europeani and Chinese miners. The honorable member having passed a high euloglum on the Com missioners located on that gold-field, expressed his firm confidence that order would be maintained, that the Chinese would continue to be restored to that portion of the diggings from which'they had been: ejected, and that the European population wo...

. . y' f, ionr pads: -0- HOME OF INFANCY. The happy home of infancy, Is there who can forget ? Tho' years have fled since I was there, 'Tis fresh in memory yet ; The .thoughts of it cling round my heart, And often will the tears Come trickling down, .whene'er"I think Of it in bygone year". The peaceful home of infancy, I-love td ope the door Of, that old. ruined dwelling place, Again to tread its floor; But there I find strange faces, And nothing meets my gaze, In all the well-known places, As 'twas in my young days. The fav'rite home of infancy, No matter where I rove, My heart untravelled still will seek SIts scenes of early love; There a fond mother nursed my youth, She taught me how to pray, And proudly led me by the hand Along the public way. The merry home of infancy, S At tinies I'dream I'm there, Sporting again as I was wont Among its meadoas fair : The thousand' little pranks and plays, The young heart's rapturous glee Oh, dear, dear home of infancy, I weep to think of thee...

3týritto btiban. -0 (From our City Correspondent.) Sydney, March 25, 1861. THE existence of the present Parliament is fast drawing to a close, and the country may naturally begin] to ask of its representatives an . account of its ;saying rand doings. The answer alas will be a "recital of unseemly scenes, -disgraceful to any body of gentlemen, obstructive of useful legislation, and tending to throw odium on the representative classes of- the community. In fact the session will close' without any practical. measures being carried unless we follow the example of the Imperiai'Parliament and carry them through in chand;giillop at the fag end of the lhunt. .The land bills,` it is true, have passed through Committee and are set down for their third reading, but cui bonoe will the Council not so shear them of their fair proportions that the assembly will refuse to recognise their bant lings in the new dresses in which they will be presented to them. Towards the abolition, or in the absence ...

GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 28 March 1861
GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) OUR MEMBER.---To some of the constituency and to others, including your Sydney corres- pondent, Mr. Redman seems rather unpala- table. That gentleman, in his last communi- cation, tells us that Redman intends snapping his fingers at any requisition that may be sent him, calling on him to resign. How does he know ? Did Mr. Redman tell him so? It does seem like it from the tenor of the said corres- pondent's letter. But if anything of the kind take place, and his letter prove true, I think we ought to be under many obligations to him for a timely hint as to what we may expect. As to the letter on the same subject, profes- sing to come from Gundaroo, and suggesting the propriety of Redman's proposer and se- conder calling a public meeting to forward a requisition calling upon him to resign, I won- der if he thinks the people of Gundaroo have nothing else to do but go to Queanbeyan and sign it ! The proper course for the " Voter for Redman" to pur...
CRIME AND CRIMIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 28 March 1861
CRTIME AND CRIMIMALS. TiHE Rev. John Davis, the- ordi nary of Newgate, has presented to the Lord 'Mayor and Court of Aldermen a report on the moral condition of the great city pri-. son duiring' the civic year just terminated. In the course- of this report the rev. gentleman says :--" Seven out of eight of all their prisoners never return to Newgate ;- and the. ticket-of leave menv who are sent back, do not reach anything like'that pro .portion. -.The relapse of these men makes a great noise, and they are generally speaking men of deep 'depravity; bilt that, he submits, is only an argument to .give such persons longer sen tences ; it does not reach the mass of liberated convicts. Were such a system: aldpted with re gard to the first offenders and mcn out of respectable families, a very large proportion would be restored to' society, and everyone benefitted. With regard to men habitually. addicted t? crime, who make a trade of it, and. who are lost to shame, all light punish nients' ...
