Sir,--Though not often seized with the cacoethes scriben- di, yet on the first appearance of your valuable paper, I was sorely tempted to congratulate you on the very creditable style in which was got up, and the general tone of it, but was enabled to resist the temptation of rushing into print until your second issue of last Saturday renewed the con- test with me,--and was conqueror. Now, Sir, I have to congratulate you, in the first place, on the above, and in the second, for so boldly stating, that our police force are not at liberty to take into custody wh...

THE VOLUNTEER MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

TIHE VOLUNTEER MlEETING. 'THE M eeting which' was advertised to take- place on Thursday, for the purpose of taking steps for the formation of a Volunteer Corps, was honoured by.the presence. of three individuals, out of thirteen, who signed the requisition a fortnight previously, 'requesting Mr. C. E. NEwco.MBE to convene a meeting. Judging from former precedents, we were preparod for any amount of apa thy on the part of the Queanbeyan public, no matter how important to their interests might be the question at issue. So that with the people gene rally we did not expect any great things ; and it was well that vwe did not, for ex cepting the three patriotic individuals alluded to. not a soul appeared. Volun teering as yet has only made a skin-deep impression on the cominunity in genc ral. But this does not at all apply to the remnaining ten, -who formed so large a portion of that deveted band, who a few days previously requested the Police Magistrate that they might go into train inig...

Gems from Poets. SHADOWS ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

---- : SHA-)OWS ON THE WALL. IIEstIo:n the hearth there is an hour of dreaming, A calmniand pensive solitude of soul, - Whei lifciand death have each other seeming, And thoughts are with us owning no control. Thesoe are te espirits-Memory's revealing; In deep solemnity they rise and fail, Shrouding the living present, and concealing The world around us--shadows on the wall. HIopes, like the leaves and blossoms, rudely shaken By cruel winds of winter from the tree Of ourexistence; phantoms that awaken Wild passing dreams of joy's young ecstasy; And love, once kind, and tenderly outpouring HIer wine into our souls ; we may recall, And find them dear an" ever heavenward soaring, .Though only now as shadows on the wall. Old clasping hands, old friendships and affections, 'Once,bodied forms beside us on the earth, Come back to haunt us-ghostly recollections, With mystic converse--by the silent hearth. Yet these are kindly spirits, and, retiring, . Draw their long shadows slowly from the ...

LATEST POROM SYDNEY. o The overture has euded in the assembly of the people's representatives, the curtain will rise on the drama on Wednesday, and in the mean time the actors in the first scene are busily rehearsing in private their parts, and the public are settling themselves to wait the denouement. The overture has been of a most :trivial character, and though Denichy ex eciited one rather brilliant passage it bore a tone of refinement appreciable only by those in the interior of the-building, and its effect ;ias completely lost by its transmission to the ?uotside world. The preparation of the esti mates is not yet finished, and the Land Bills 'will be first taken up. The second reading of one of the series of two will take place to morrow. At present there are but few signs of any agitation on the subject. Even the Land" League is a "dumb dog." Of any op position to the second reading I think there is butlittle chance.

A NUGGET'S. STORY. WRITTEN EXPRESSLY FOR TrE GOLDEN AGE' (Continuedfrom our last.)

GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 6 October 1860

GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) LAST week a petition was sent from this place to the Post-master General, praying that he would change the hour of departure from Yass of the Gundaroo and Yass mail. At present it generally arrives here about three hours after the Queanbeyan mail has left, and therefore is no benefit to either Gininderra or Queanbeyan; whereas if the Post-master General grants the prayer of the petition it will leave Yass three hours sooner and arrive here at the same time as the Goulburn mail arrives. It would be better for all parties, for the in- habitants here would not require to attend for their letters and papers twice, as both mails would arrive at the same time. The Ginin- derra and Queanbeyan correspondence could likewise be forwarded on the same day, at the present time papers or letters for Queanbeyan or Gininderra from Yass, coming this road, must lie at this post-office three days. ( From another Correspondent. ) THE country about here looks beau...
