Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

--o SIn iWiAD BELCIUER AND THE EsQUIrAUX.--Sir- Edward Belcher, of Arctic exploration celebrity, read a very interesting paper-on the Esquimaux, at the last meeting of the Ethnological So ciety. Sir Edward's investigation led him to tlhe lbelief that there is a close connection betceen the Esquimaux. of of North America and the natives along the shores of the Pacific. The Ichutchi he found . nimore accomplished than the other Indians, especially, in music. They manufacture their own violins, and per form on them in a wonderful manner, imitating the sounds of various animals with great exactness, and they are good buffbons anrd actors ; but in the useful arts they are not.equal to tlhe Esqui maux, 'and' arcinferior. to them irn'intel ligence.. Sir. Edward gave an interesting description of the habits and manners of the Esquimaux, particularly of those of Icy Cape, with whom he became most acquainted. He obtained great influence over these Indians, and :so long as'he could.teach them ...

Select Poetry. MUTUAL ASSISTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

-Select Poetry- MUTUAL ASSISTANCE. A man very lame Was a little to blame To stray from his humble abode; Hot, thirsty, bemired, And heartily tired,   He laid himself down in the road. While thus he reclined, A man who was blind Came by, and entreated his aid: " Deprived of , my sight, Unassisted, to-night I shall not reach home, I'm afraid." " Intelligence give Of the place where you live," Said the cripple, " perhaps I may know it; In my road it may be; And if you'll carry me, will give me much pleasure to show it. " Great strength you have got, Which, alas ! I have not, In my legs so fatigued every nerve is; For the use of your back, I.or thi: yes' which you lahck, My pair shall be much at your service," Said the other poor man, "What an excellent plan; Pray, get on my shoulders; good brother; I see all mankind, If they are but inclined, May constantly, help one another."

ARRIVAL OF MR. WENTWORTH. PURSUANT to the announcement of the com- I mittee'appointed to make arrangements for the reception of Mr. \Wentworth on his return to this colony, in the Benarcs, immediately on the steamer being signalled at half-past ten o'clock on Thursday morning from the Heads, the appointed signals were hoisted at the Flag staff, and three guns fired in quick succession from Fort Philip, in order to give notice of the fact to those persons who intended to wel- 1 come the veteran statesman to his Australian home. The steamer London had been char tered by the committee in order to proceed to the Heads, there to meet the Benares, and accompany her to Sydney. Tickets had been issued to about 450 persons, who desired to avail themselves of the opportunity, and al though the anexpectedly early hour at which the arrival of the Benares was signalled probably precluded a larger attendance of our leading citizens, fully the above number were passengers by the London, which left...

THE GULF CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

THE GULF CREEK DIGGINGS. TuE Gulf Creek Diggings are turning Out handsomely. HawdOn's party, last week di vided £16 odd per man (nine of them in com pany), and could only work three and-a-half days in the week, in consequence of the heavy rain. Sweeny's party, in the adjoining claims, sluiced 83 lbs. weight in two days, and all the others are doing well. Great excitement is existing, and as these diggings are most ex toensive, there will be very shortly a large population. I can vouch for the above facts. -Extract from private Letter. The I?nglewood Advertiser of the 12th instant gives the following remarkable report of some late crushings of quartz from the Columbian Reef, at Inglewood :--' From Messrs.

General Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

CRICKrET.-A correspondent to the Goulburn Herald says, the return match between the   players of Berrima and Goulburn was played at the former place on Monday last, and re- sulted in the complete victory of the Berrima   club. The reception of the Goulburn men was highly creditable to their, antagonists; after the match they were invited to a very excellent dinner provided at Mr. Walker's inn. The ground was very bad. The game was won in one innings by 21 notches. DESERTING FROM THE ARMY.-On Monday last, a deserter from the 12th regiment was brought into Yass under escort, for the purpose of being forwarded to Sydney there to be dealt a with by the military authorities. The offen-   der's name is Alfred Brooke, and although not sixteen years of age, he has three times de- serted. He enlisted at Dover, and on the occasion of his first desertion was forgiven, on account of his youthfulness. On the second   occasion he received a sent...

Letters to the Editor. [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] THE BULLS' HEADS SIGNAL CASE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

-0- [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] THE BULLS' HEADS SIGNAL CASE. TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--I regret to see that Mr. Antill has taken umbrage at the remarks made by you in your issue of the 11th instant, relative to the charge of horse-stealing heard by the Queanbeyan Bench against one Whittaker. As Mr. Antill was not in court when this case was before the Bench, of course he did not know all that transpired on the occasion; but having myself been present during the whole hearing of the case, I can bear my testimony to the truth of the statements   made by you. Therefore if there was any "lie" it was a sworn one, by the witnesses   Bruce and his mother. In blaming you, especially in such lan- guage as that in which you are charged with "a lie,--black, malignant, and criminal," Mr. Antill is as injudicious as rash,--that lie, as he terms it, being the sworn t...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In your last issue appears a letter signed signed XXX, a signature, the writer, "Alfred the   Great" can lay but little claim to, whatever he might have done a few years since. This, how- ever, I am not disposed to allude to further. My object in now writing is to reply to XXX's effu- sion, in which he so unjustly and unwarrantably attacks a number of respectable people of Quean- beyan, comprising old and young. He takes it upon himself to suggest that the practice of shift- ing signboards and posts has been concocted dur- ing the hours of night dancing in class,--an assertion he dare not make personally to at least some of the parties frequenting that place. Fraught as dancing is with all its dangers, it has not yet brought men so low as "shaking in the   hat," or "hiding the horse." XXX had better take care how he attacks respectable people in future, lest he lay hold of the dirty end of the stick for his trouble, it...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 25 April 1861

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--Your last number of the "Age," contains The Brewer's Last, or in other words, The Boiler Burst. XXX, a writer of no small note in this small town of ours, has chosen to take up his pen not only to bring abuses under notice, but also to lecture on morality; and suggest grave charges against a class of people who certainly do not deserve the odium which the writer casts upon them. To make any reply to his communication on this particular point, would be folly, at the same time seeing that XXX has taken such deep inter- est in the welfare of Queanbeyan during the silent watches of the night, I would recommend him to apply without delay to the chief constable for the staff which he is sure to get, believing, as I do, that he will make a first-rate "trap."   Your's, &c., BEST LONDON STOUT.

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 May 1861

9'II?TrSDA Y1, MAY 2,-1861. IN political circles 'the nUl-absorbing topic at the.present time concerns the Upper Ho'use.. Never before was the country so fully of one mind as it is in the opinioni that a :t Nominee Upper House, instead of' BLCei? calcula?ted to do good,;by exercising a salutary check upon .the hasty or imperfect legislation of. theLower, is fromn its very iature likely. to operate as a stumbling-block in the :way of political priogiess.. This opinion has unhappily been proved cor rect, by. theuinpiopular course whiclh has all along been pursued by the present Legislative Council -of New South Wales. The last: general election of members to serve in thi Legislative Assembly resiilted in the production of a body whose views and- measures, on the whole, have been oof the most popular character; and who have shown by their votes and -by the 'ature of the bills they, have .introduced, .that they really have the country's best interests at heart;.

WVe abridge from the Empire: INAUGURATION OF THE FREE MASONS' HALL. The ceremonial of the opening and inaugu ration of the Australasian. Freemasons' Hall, took place on Tuesday se'nnight, at high twelve, and attracted a large, number of. Ma sons belonging to the different Constitutions, who mustered in great force to do honour to this solemn occasion. This noble building, in addition to the Great Hall,. comprises various other apartments required for the ac commodation of the members of the Order; all of which have been planned on a scale al together. commensurate with the posit'on which has been attained by this ancient and influential body in these colonies.

ANNUAL EXHIBITION OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 May 1861

ANNUAL EXHIBITION OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The Exhibition of live stock, farm produce, and agricultural implements, under the aus pices of the Agricultural Society of New South .Wales, was opened Tuesday the 23rd, on the Society's grounds, Parramatta: The ground, comprising fifteen acres, is now fenced with a close paling, which is a great improve ment; as at the Spring exhibition the show was much cramped up.' One effect, however, of the large increase of accommodation, is that the show looks proportionally less. To occupy fifteen acres fully would require a larger exhibition than has ever yet been brought together in New South Wales, The very abundance of the provision made for future years is a temporary disadvantage to the present appearance of the exhibition. The weather was unpropitious; and the opening of the new Masonic Hall doubtless kept away some who would otherwise have been present at the exhibition. But.while these circumstances detracted from the bril liancy of th...
