THE COUNCIL OF EDUCATION.

UNITED STATES. [REUTER'S EXPRESS.] NEW YORK, July 10. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867
UNITED STATES. [REUTER'S EXPRESS.) NEW YORK, July 10. Congress assembled at Washington on the 3rd instant, and will probably remain in session about two weeks. The declared object of this extra ad journed session is the passage of an explanatory bill defining more clearly the power and scope of the Reconstruction Act passed last spring for the govern ment of the Southern states. The action thus far has indicated a determination on the part of Congress to have the law so explicitly defined and amended that the President cannot, even if so disposed, avoid executing it in its intended letter and spirit. But for this action on the part of Congress, the President would have executed the reconstruction law as interpreted by the official opinion of Attorney-General Stanberry, and un doubtedly Mr. Stanberry's opinion, if adopted, would have substantially annulled the intended provisions of the act. All precedent justifies the President in administering the laws, not as he may view them hims...

Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867
SNOW STORM.- Last Saturday morning a heavy snow-storm fell in this and the adjoining districts. The morning broke with a very lowering aspect, in- dicating the approach of severe weather. About eight o'clock the mizzling rain which was then fal- ling like a Scotch mist, and was accompanied by oc- casional gusts of piercing cold wind, became inter- &nbsp; spersed with large feathery flakes of snow, which thickened more and more until, despite the sloppy condition of the soil it began to lie thick upon roofs and ground. Therewas no intermission until about four o'clock afternoon, when the storm gradually abated, and the snow, which lay some inches thick in spots, and whitened the face of the country around, had almost totally disappeared. The thaw, as might be expected, caused a considerable rise in the creeks' and rivers. The Shoalhaven was flooded on Sunday and was impassable to such an extent that the Sydney mail, due that afternoon, did not arrive in town until &nb...

ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867
ARALUEN. &nbsp; [FROM OUR OORRESPONDENT.] In a brief letter I forwarded you on Tuesday last, I made a few remarks on the want of water, an article as indispensable in gold digging as the metal itself. Many of the similar claims were almost at a stand- still or attended with considerable labour. In fact, &nbsp; the larger ones, especially those on Major's Creek, began to conceive the idea that a little more of the watery element would tend greatly, in all proba- bility, to the health of the purse, wipe off some of figures from the bottom of the storekeepers' ledgers, and- if the goddess of fortune smiled upon them- add a few of the cardinals, if not more, to their ban- kers' account. On Thursday and Friday there were unmistakable signs that the clouds had fully resolved to drop down fatness, so that the thirst that was be- gan to be felt by those whose exchequer showed symptoms of a low golden fever to rack their golden constitution, would be slacked by a golden draft...

The Independent. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 11 September 1867
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th, 1867. The growing imporiance of the road via Molonglo Gap, as a direct means of com munication between the districts of Braid wo0d and Queanbeyan, demands, in the opinions of all interested therein, an in creased expenditure for the purpose of keep ing it in a state of repair. This road was first opened up by private enterprise and for years past has by the same means, sup plemented by a meagre dole from the public revenue, been kept in a state of tolerable repair. The unprecedented floods of the past winter have, however, seriously dam aged, and in some cases totally destroyed, the bridges and causeways on this route, which, notwithstanding, has remained the only practicable, or at least the best, means for heavily-ladeen teams coming from Mo - longlo, Bungendore, Queanbeyan and places &nbsp; beyond, with produce to this their only market. Recently a petition was got up for the purpose of obtaining a more adequate grant for the needful repairs of ...

f4 INDEPENDENT" OFFICE, Friday afternoon. THE continued influx of wheat into.the district has had the effect of depreciating its value very consider ably. Prime samples, that a fortnight ago realized 6/6 to 6/9, now with difficulty finds purchasers at 4/6 and 4/9. The market is over stocked, and a further fall may be anticipated Goulburn flour quoted at £13/10. The local quo totions are still unusettled. The following may be taken as the ruling quota tions of produce :-Maize, 4/ to 4/6; Barley, 3/ to 3/6; Oats, 3/ to 3/6; Potatoes, 4/; Hay, £3/10; Butter, /8 to /10; Cheese, /8 to /9 ; Bacon /6 to /7 ; Eggs, /9 to /10. We have been directed to call attention to the important sale of new household furniture, to take place next Monday, by Mr Darke, on the premises next the Wesleyan Church. In our own opinion buyers would do well to be in attendance.
COUNSEL TO BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
COUNSEL TO BOYS. THE following fitting counsels on self-trust, taken from an American publication, aire writ ten by Horace Greely, editor of the New York Tribune, than whom there are few better qualified to give such advice as is here given to boys: When I was. nine years old, there unex pectedly appeared one day in my father's humble farmhouse, the clergyman, doctor, lawyer, and perhaps one or two other mag natesof our New England rural towniship, who addressed my parents to this effect :-" Your eldest son is so promising a student, so easy and rapid a learner, that we think he should have a better education than our common school can give him. We propose, therefore, that he be sent to Phillip's Academy, and thence to the college; and we offer, would you choose to entrust him to us, to see that he is thoroughly schooled, without expense to you." Ily poor but proud parents responded with thanks, but decided that they should give their children all the schooling they could fairly aff...

BABY IS KING [Newspaper Article] — Braidwood Independent — 14 September 1867
BABY IS KING A ROSE-oCUTAINED cradle, where nestled within Soft cambric and flannel, lie pounds seventeen, Is the throne of a tyrant ; that pink little thing, Is an autocrat august, for Baby is King. Good solemn grandfather dares hardly speak Or walk, lest the sleeper should hear his boots creak, Grandma is a martyr, in habits and cap Which the monarch unsettles, as well as her nap Papa, wise and mighty, just home from the House Grows meek on the threshold, and, moves like a mouse, To stare at the bundle ! then outward he goes, Like an elephant trying to walk on his toes. The queen of the ball-room throws loyally down . Before him the roses she wore in her crown, And sings little love-songs of how she loves best : The fair baby blossom she rocks on her breast. Good aunties and cousins before him bow low, Though he rumples their ringlets, twists collar and bow; He bids the nurse walk with his majesty's self, And cries when she stops, like a merciless elf. He flings right and left his...
