The Golden Age. THURSDAY, MAY 23, 1861. DISCOVERY OF GOLD AT MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 23 May 1861

TIHURSDAY, MAY 23, 1861. DISCOVERY OF GOLD AT MOLONGLO. A RUMOUR of the discovery of Gold at Molonglo has spread through the dis- trict during the last week, and from the accounts which have reached us, we are inclined to believe that the period has arrived when the commercial de- pression under which we have so long been prostrated, shall give place to the busy stirring times which invariably follow the discovery of a new and pro- mising gold-field. It has long been known that Queanbeyan is literally sur- rounded by just that kind of soil which presents the best indications of the pre- sence of gold; and in several directions gold has been unearthed in sufficient quantities to encourage the belief that, if instead of the spasmodic and desultory efforts which have been occasionally re- sorted to for the purpose of discovering a steady-yielding and profitable gold- field, a properly organised movement were made by the inhabitants, the re-   sult would be that not one onl...

Gems from Poets. THE LIFE-GUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 30 May 1861

-0-· THE LIFE-GUAGE. THEY err who measure life by years, With false or thoughtless tongue;, Some hearts grow old before their"'time; Others are always young; 'Tis not the number of thd lines On life's fast-filling page, 'Tis not the pulse's added throbs, Which constitute their age. Some souls are serfs among the free, While others nobly thrive; They stand just where their fathers stood, Dead, even while they live! : Others, all spirit, heart, and sense; Their's the mysterious power. 'To live in thrills of joy or woe, A twelvemonth in an hour ! Seize, then, the minutes as they pass; The woof of life is thought ! Warm up the colours; let them glow With fire or fancy fraught. Live to some purpose; make thy life A gift of use to thee! A joy, a good, a golden hope, A heavbnly argosy !

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 30 May 1861

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1861. THn sum-total of population of the. Registry. District of "Queanbeyan, as shown by the Census Returns which appeared in our last impression, al though not presenting such an increase over past returns as is apparent in the case of other districts within the colony, nevertheless affords grounds for complete satisfaction as regards the, question of social progress. The actual numbers in the town of Queanbeyan appear to be but the merest trifle in advance of the previous return; but there is every reason to, believe that the schedule then embraced the inhabitants residing in the vicinity of the township, and actu ally beyond its boundaries, while, the present, returns are strictly confined within those boundaries.' With this ex planation, then, the towin itself shows an increase proportionate with' that. of other towns. The district, too, presents an increase quite as. great as could be expected under its. peculiar circum stances: Considering the geographical po...

- 00oo 'DEPARTURE': OF MR. DALLEY 'AND MR. PARKES FOR ENG~AND.--From the Empire of the 22nd inst., we learn that on the previous day, these geatlemen, who have been chosen and appointed by the Government to the new offices of Immigration Lecturers, left Sydney by the steamer Wonga Wonga for Melbotirne, on their way to Great Britain, whither they will proceed by the steamship Great Britain. A great number of gentlemen assembled to bid the, distinguished emigrants farewell. 'An address was presented to Mr. Parkes, and read by Dr. Woolley. In. the course of his reply, Mr. Parkes said, he believed he was doing right in proceeding to England, and the object for which 'he was going he believed to be one of great interest to the country. One of the causes of the great depression of the colony, and its falling into the rear of the other colonies in the advance of :civilisation, was a want of sufficient publicity of its 'real resources.. If it was supposed by the working classes that the inf...

GOLD AT GUNDAROO! [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 30 May 1861

GOLD AT GUNDAROO ! WE have for some time been in possession of information that a party of diggers were at work at a place called Brooks' Creek, Gunda roo, and that they were making a good thing of. it, but were desirous of keeping the secret to themselves until satisfied as to the charac ter of the spot; consequently 'we' held our peace to abide the issue. By last night's mail, however, we received the following facts from a reliable correspondent, who vouches for the truth of the news,. and expresses his opinion that the discovery will turn out to be of a very important character. Our informant says: '" The new diggings at Brooks' Creek are likely to turn out first-rate. I speak from my own knowledge, as I visited the spot last Tuesday, and feel.quito satisfied as to the success of the party, which consists of four men.. I had the pleasure of seeing about three ounces of gold with one of the men. This same party have tried several of the .tributary creeks and gullies, and pronounc...

NEW ZEALA)ND. TIIREATENING AsPECT OF TIlE NATIVES IN TIE, NORTH.-By the Lord Worsley, says the Sydney Morning Herald of Saturday, we have news to the 7th instant from Auckland, to the 4th from Taranaki, and the 11th from Nelson. The Nelson Examiner of the above date says: -" The intelligence received last evening, per Airedale, from the N?rthif not very conclu sive or satisfactory, is still very suggestive. The comments of the Press are singularly few and guarded; partly because, -in the, absence of any, definite facts, a general uncertainty prevails as to the future; and partly because, in the present critical state of our affairs, it is probably felt that .a greater responsibility than usual rest upon those through whom the public at large gains tlh chief part of . its knowledge of what is. going, on, and that the Government should be left as free and un trammelled in its actions as possible..
