THE REV. M. KAVANAGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 18 April 1861
THE REV. M. KAVANAGH. This estimable gentleman, who for the past eighteen years has laboured most zealously as pastor of the Roman Catholic church in these districts, took his departure for his native land yesterday. The high esteem in which the Rev. M. Kavanagh has been held by all classes and creeds of the Queanbeyan and Mo naro districts may be best judged of by the appended addresses which, together with a testimonial in gold, were presented to him at at his residence on the evening of .;Tuesday last, by several gentlemen of the town and district . &nbsp; &nbsp; Queanbeyan, April 16th, 1861. REVEREND, and DEAR Sir,---We the &nbsp; members of your flock in the district of Queanbevan, beg, respectfully to address you, our beloved Pastor, on the eve of your de- parture from among us, and to express our deep regret that you, who have so long, so zealously, and so successfully fulfilled the pastoral duties amongst us, should he com- pelled by the breaking up o...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 18 April 1861
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--As you have devoted so much of your last issue to me and my affairs, I have no doubt you will be kind enough to spare me a column this week in reply. It appears that in a case of horse-stealing two witnesses were examined who gave such conflicting evidence that the Bench dismissed the case; but you choose to take up one of the statements made by these parties, and boldly assert that there can be little doubt of its truth. Not satisfied with this, you go on with a string of assertions, in some giving an authority, in others public report, but all about as genuine as the original axiom. Now sir, be kind enough to take up your last week's issue, and carefully compare my reply with its leading article, always bearing in mind that, unlike yourself, I at once fully assert that I am prepared to bring evidence to the truth of all my assertions, and shall not fail to do so if any in- &nbsp; quiry into the matter take place. The man, Pat Connell,...

Sir,- Tnder the head of "COricket ltems.," the followitng paragraph appeared in your issue of the 18th instant, and at the :'same has- caused 'some little notice among the players of our club, and is not at all consistent Woith facts, I have ventured to address you on the subject. The paragrajh I allude to ran as follows :. T" The Queanbeyan players are anxious to test their prowess and skill with the Cooma' Club; but a letter received in Queanbeyan intimates that nothing is likely to be done in the matter, except a member of the Queanbeyan club visit Cooma for the purpose of provoking them to the contest." Now, sir, you are doubtless aware that as a public club we, can take no notice of individual challenges or private letters containing the opinion of any gentleman who perhaps may not belong to our club at all..

ON Monday last, tho 15th instant, a Tom perance Soir6e, and afterwards a public meet ing for the purpose of forming an auxilliary to the Goulburn Band of Hope, were held here. The attendarice Was good, reflecting much credit on the good taste of 'tbe'inhabi tants of the township and surrounding dis trict.

At four p.m. the tea-pots were brought into requisition, when some four-score persons presented their tickets of adnmission, and sat down to partake of the " clup that cheers but not inebriates."

KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861
KIANDRA. From the Alonaro Mercury. ALL the claims in the river are doing well, owing to the opportunities of opening out the ground this continued dry weather has given them. One party of.Italians last week took out 30 ounces. The most difficult portion of the work in the Empire claim has been got through: They are now past the dam, and expect to be wash ing in five weeks more. Great things are expected from this claim. I have heard that £250 has been offered and refused for a share. Parties of three and four still come in from Lambing Flat, giving anything but a favour able account of these diggings. From private letters, to different persons here, that I have seen, very many will be back again soon, and now would come if they had she means to do so.

GOLD NEAR TUMUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861
GOLD NEAR TUMUT. T'E have often called the attention of our readers to the auriferous resources of our neighbourhood, rnd the extreme' probabiliiy that we shall sooner or later flndt ourselves the centre, and not the fag end of any gold field. WVo were shown yesterday a magnificent sample of gold, in weight some Goz., that was stated upon reliable authority, to be'the result of two mens labour for two days, upon the banks of the Adjinbilly Creek. The publicity of such a fact will do good. Many of our people who have rushed to Burrangong, and already repented of the deed, may' now learn that almost at their own doors they have a gold-field, offering a richer return for their labour than that place ever did, for which they were prepared to abandon the comforts and stability of home.-- lWynyard Times..
