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. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 28 March 1861

-0- [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,--In your last issue appeared a leader on our representative. After reading it over I thought you seemed to be a little too fast. You advise the electors to have a meeting to get up a petition calling on Mr. Redman to resign; for what reason? You say, because he acts the part   of a merryandrew. No doubt he has acted rashly at times, but now he is beginning to see the folly of talking so much, and lately he has been abstain- ing from it, I did all I could to return him at the last election. But now I am a little like yourself,   I do not think so very much of him; still I would   not act so unjustly towards him as you wish; give him a little time and he will very possibly come round. You ought to remember that Mr. Forster was pretty well "gifted with the gab," so that Redman is only a se...

Whitta- ker alleged that he borrowed the horse from one Pat Connell, of Gingerra. The further hearing of the case was postponed to this day.

THE CUTIVATION OF COTTON IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 April 1861

THE CUTIVATION OF COTTON IN AUSTRALIA. The following correspondence on this subject has been published in the ' Times :'- TO THE EDITOR OF THE 'TIMES' Sir,-The secession of South -Carolina marks the impending disruption of the United States of Amnirica, and along 'with it the possible unhinging of the negro mind in the slave states-a con contingency which might produce tre mendous misery in our manufacturing districts. It is therefore high time to make our casts in every direction for the cultivation of the cottin-plant, and I look upon- the covenaut in the treaty with China for legalising emigration a most Providential arrangement iii fur therance of this object. Sir Charles Nicholson, than whom no higher opinion can be cited, writes to me in reference to Queensh nd as follows : *The capabilities of Queensland are unsurpassed-perhaps scarcely equalled -by those of any other colony, com prising an immense area of magnificent pastoral and alluvial lands; it is on the table land of th...

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 April 1861

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1861. TiE disruption of the United States of America. vill tend to shake the faith of many who' hold ultra-democratic views with regard to the supposed advantages of republican over monarchical forms of government. Had America been a monarchy, the late untoward events which have convulsed her from centre to circumference could hardly have hap pened. The elements which have led to the dismemberment of. the southern states would not have existed, or at least would have been powerless to effect the serious results which have ere this pro bably embittered the hearts and unset tled the peace of 'multitudes. 'The firm and decided stand which the northern states have taken against the slavery propensities of the south, has, we opine, had niore to do in 'bringing about the secession, of South Carolina and other slave-holding states, than any political causes could possibly have. We have no sympathy whatever with the seceders, because they have acted throughout in a manner...

Metropolitan. Sydney, April 1, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 April 1861

-0 (From our City Correspondent.) Sydney, April 1, 1861. THE - brief existence which remains for the Parliament, will be full of eventful interest; its deeds and misdeeds will be pregnant with weal or woe, and the future historian of the country will hereafter attribute to the legis a tion of the ensuing six weeks the cause of many political and social phases in colonial events. On the 13th May the present Parlia ment expires, and its requiem will be sung by grateful thousands, if it but pass in its integ rity Robertson's Land Bills, and a Council Bill which shall command the respect of the people. To ensure the success of the first measure, the minister for Lands has resigned his seat in the Assembly, preparatory to join ing the nominees. The fortiter in re style will make the old sleepy heads look around them, and great will be the disgust of Sir William Burton and the polished Thompson when the ejaculation of « bosh " from the hon. member shall assail their cars during one of Isa...

Parliamentary. TUESDAY, MARCH 26. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 April 1861

TUESDAY, MARCH 26. In the Assembly, in reply to a question from Mr. Buchanan Mr. Cowper stated that an appeal had been made to the Government in behalf the1 Rev. Mr. Chaucer, and pending a reference to the judge who presided at the trial, the Govern ment had suspended the addition of hard la bour to.the sentence. Mr. Buchanan thereupon gave notice of his intention to move for a select committee to inquire into the conduct of Mr. Justice Wise in reference to this case. Mr. Hoskins wished to call the attention of the House to a paragraph in the Maitland Mercury, which reported ajMr. Wisdom to have said that he had been told by his brother that the members of the Assembly all got drunk. The Speaker considered that it was unbe coming the dignity of the House to take no tice of the paragraph in question. Mr. Wisdom denied the right of any mem ber to inquire what he might thinkl proper to say out of doors. At the same time he had no hesitation in saying that the statement referred to was ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. A CONSTANT TRAVELLER BY MICALAOo.-Your commnu nication is grossly libelous, which of itself is sufficient reason for its non-publication; but beyond this, your letter; being anonymous, demands that no notice be inken of it, other than embracing the opportunity of re minding the public and yourself that it is absolutely necesary that the writer's name and address be confi ded to us with all productions intended for publication. To rmake a personal attack upon an individual, without giving your name, is cowardly in the extreme. Prefer your charges honestly, and not attempt to stab a man in the dark, and it would be more to your credit.

General Garibaldi's pocket, quite the conti ary to nature, which has a horror of a vacuum, t has a horror of a plenum. On i the observation nmade to him by Basso and his son, that the sum he was tLaking with him could not last long, the General answered, " The harvest has been good, we shall therefore have some corn; and the kitchen garden was very good in the spring.
