Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
TO TIIE EDITOR. Dear Sir,l-Would you kindly allowv me a small space in your valuable columns to say a few words in regaid of kind treatment. On Tuesday, the 12th instant there was a tea meeting in. the Christ Church school room in honour of the arrival of the Bishop of Goulburn. I assisted as much as .1 pos sibly. could to get all things ready. At the time of the meeting there was no water at the parsonage, so I had t6"bring it up from the river in cans to fill the boiler for tea. It was filled two or three times. - Ever'y one in the room had their tea of the delicacies that were spread on the tables; I had to stay outside to take care of the boiler, teapots, and fire, and so I lost my tea.

DEATH OF LADY TICHBOURNE—SINGULAR EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
DEATH OF LADY TICHIBOURNE--' SINGULAR EVIDENCE. Tun difficulties which surrounded the set. tlement hf the question of succession to the Tichborne baronetcy are likely to become more complicated by the sudden and unex. pected death of Lady Henrietta Felicite Tichborne, upon whom an inquest was held in London, by Dr Lancaster, at the request of the claimant to the family estates, who made a very serious statement on oath, firm which it would seem that he suspected the death to have I een caused by unfair means. It may, perhaps, be necessary to recal at tention to the fact that recently a gentleman suddenly appeared in England who claimed' to be Roger Charles Doughty' Tichborne, tenth baronet, and heir to the title and es tates connected with the Tichborne family. He stated that after meeting with various misfortunes, consequent upon a voyage he had undertaken twenty seven years ago, he reached Australia, and had remained there up to the time of leaving for England last year. He was ad...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
IRELAND. The preparations for the reception of the Prince and, it is now hoped, of the Princess of Wales (though this appears to be s· very problematical) are being vigorously carried on. The State apartments in Dublin Castle are being fitted up in the best style. The apartments usually occupied by the Lord Lieutenant and his family, which open upon the Lower Castle-yard, are to be set apart for the royal party, and the private dining-room will be decorated for a drawing room. In all circles the interest in the visit of the Prince has been greatly enhanced by the announcement that the Princess is likely to visit Dublin, and this is especially mani fested in the anxiety to obtain tickets for the'grand ball which is to be given in the Exhibition Palace, and for which a commit tee of arrangement has been formed, with she Lord Chancellor as chairman. A sum of £2000 has been voted by the Board of Works for the purpose of carrying out the preparations in St Patrick's Cathedral. Captain Ma...

NEWS .BY THE MMAIL. GENERAL SUMMARY.. Tue bare announcement of the resigna tion of the Earl of Derby was received in time to be included in our'February :bu4 get. Lord Derby's ill health.was the real as well as the avowed reason of the change, and he is about to betake himself to Can nes, where if he pleases, he. can discuss political times gone by with his, former colleague, Lord Brougham, now sorely af flicted with memoir writing. It may .be however, that Lord Derby might have de layed his retirement, but for a feeling that Mr Disrael's 20 years of service fully en titled him to the high place which in the days that are coming there would be small chance of his obtaining. Mr Disraeli, therefore, succeeded, and, as ho took an early opportunity of saying, he inherited both the place and the policy' of Lord Derby.. There 'was little doubt left upon the milids' of men as to this latter fact When it was announced that among the few rearrangements of offices 'that Lord Chan cellor's pla...
Selections from Sydney Punch. ARCADES AMBO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
ARCADES AMBO. Benjamin Lee Went down on one knee, And asked the Court's clemency, for he Had done very wrong, And, not to be long, Wras seally?most awfully sorry. "Allan M'Pherson, In his own proper person," Said he had nothing of that sort about him; He'd greatly prefer, . Not to plead, or demur, . But'he'd floor theu~lple-lot-the deuce doubt him. The Judge he was vexed, And the Counsel perpleked; And the whole case, it seemed; " up a tree, sir ;' But Isaacs got riled, When Faicett grew wild, And said that they ought to have three, sir.

The Age. SATURDAY, MAY 23rd, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
SdATRDAI, MAY 23rd, 1868. SINCE the days when the public were amused and even delighted with the performances of Mr DAVID BUCHANAN, the late member for East Macquarie,. wve have not discovered that any member of the Legislative Assembly has brought forward so prominently . the administration of justice as regards the magistracy. There are few in deed who will not admit that Bu caNAN,, whatever might have been his failings, was most energetic in bringing every instance of alleged in competency on the part of certain .justices of the peace under particular notice ; and this action on his part led to the reform of many objection able matters and the issue of a writ of s?upersedcas in more than one or two flagrant cases, besides various othei, investigations. It cannot nowv, more than -in the days of BUCHANAN, be urged that the Commission of the Peace is in that satisfactory state it ought to be; for public attention is frequently drawn to magisterial de cisions which at a glance show a...
REMEDIES FOR SNAKE-POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 23 May 1868
REMEDIES FOR SNAKE-POI-'U SONING - AN interesting letter by Mr Gerard Krcfft on snake poisoning appears in the Austra. lasian. :Mr Krefft says i "-It is difficult to understand why the changes in the blood caused by the injection df snake-poison should be so little known, when the materials by which this 'mystery may be cleared up are always at hand. There are living venomous snakes to be had, and animals, in the shape of rabbits, goats, or fowls, to '", experimented upon; there is certainly no necessity to put the matter to test on a living huiman 'being; but if this is desirable, why not extract a few drops of blood, and mih this with the snake-poison, or hy. not. tiy some of the'smaller species of snakes, on .one's own finger, and then press out'-a.drop of blood for micioseopie examination._ Let the liquid thus obtained be examined by a conipetent. physiological chemist, an'd the-result be given'to a medi cal man;, who i"ay then be able to offer some remedy to counteract the effe...

The paper is of good colour and texture, and well adapted for printing purposes, though rather rougher on the one side thanl on the other-a fault which formerly was general in the English-made papers, but which has been obviated by improved appliances. The sums sent but of the colony yearly for printing paper have hitherto been very considerable, this office alone, though but a provincial one, consuming about £500 worth.
