QUARTERLY ACCOUNTS. W e beg to remind Subscribers, Adver tisers, and others whose Accounts arc now rendered, of the vital importance to, us of undelayed settlemnent of the same. Many of these accounts are of long standing ; and we respectfully urge a return of that consideration we have ever shown (particularly through the recent depressed times) by an early response to our present soli citations. We have no desire or in tention to distress those who will con vince us of temporary inability to pay; but we are persuaded there are many whose accounts remain unpaid through simple negligence. To these in particuiar we address ourselves, 'and sincerely hope the tenor of our -remarks will have the effect of render ing any ,other means of payment un necessary.
THE RELEASE OF THE CAPTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 20 June 1868
THE RELEASE OF THE CAPTIVES. Lieutenant Prideaux, accompanied by Mr Fld and one or two Abyssinian grandees, came to inquire on what terms friendship might be cemented between his majesty and the English. After an hour or so they returned with the answer that Theodorus must give up every European captive in Magdaia and submit to the Queen of Eng land, being guaranteed only honourable treatment for himself and family.' In the afternoon the same embassy returned, bear ing letters from Kassai-not from Theodorus the anointed King-conveying an expres sion of his willingness to give up the pii soners, provided that the English would aid him to regain his kingdoth, and afterwards leave the country; on no other condition would he listen to their demands. It was an anxious hour for Sir Robert Napier, up. on whose decision the lives of all the cap tives seemed to depend. It was hard to leave countrymen to what seemed certain massacre; but there was no alternative be tween that and accepting th...
THE STORMING AND CAPTURE OF MAGDALA. Camp before Magdala, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 20 June 1868
THE STORMING AND CAPTURE OF MAGDALA. Camp before Magdala, April 16. Soon after 8 o'clock the brigades were drawn up in array on a plateau, at the foot of Fable, ready to commence the trying as= cent before them. Captain Speedy, with a squadron of the 3rd Light Cavalry under Colonel Loch, had been sent on in advance, to assure the chiefs and soldiers on Selassie and Faibla that not a hair of their head would be injured if they laid down their arms and left the.hill. Many thousands did so; others retired to the amba to bid us defiance there. It was a fine sight to see from the summit of the hill the long line of red--Engineers, Suppers, 33rd and 45th regiments, the 4th King's Own in their grey karkee, the Be loocheca in their dark green, the Artillery in blue, the mountain batteries on mules, and the Armnstrongs on elephants, winding up, the steep and picturesque path that led to Fable, while down the sides of the hill, by every sheep track, streamed the disarmed soldiery, old men and...
VIOLATION OF GRIFFIN'S GRAVE. THE INQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 20 June 1868
VIOLATION OF GRIFFIN'S GRAVE. THa INQUItY. The particulars telegraphed a few days ago are confirmed by the -Rockhampton Bul letin received last night.- It appears, from the proceedings' at the special meeting of the Cemnetcry Board, that About the time of the execution of 'Griffinc the sexton had been told an attempt would be made to rail e the body. Before the funeral, Mr Liveirnore wvas asked if he had any objection to Grif fin's being buried in the Church of England ground, and also to inform him: of the pro bability.of the I ody being raised; - Mr Li vermore said he saw no objection,. but thought there 'was no use in watching the grave. The sexton watched two nights. The'carth had been well rammed down and the-grive sunk to sa depth- of six feet. In. order to. prevent '-any -disturbance of the grave the sexton put slabs across the grave' about two feet below the surface. A day or two after; a man who had arrived by the Tinoncedied and was taken out to the cc metery to be buried....

TlHE CLERMONT TRAGEDY. A}fu Northern Argus contains full praticu lars of the confession of Griffin and the discovery of the notes. We abridge the most important part of the lengthy re= port;-Before the excitement attending to eecution of Griffin hiad subsided, and men were still gathered in knots in the streets, talking over the terrible hardi hood and unconcern exhibited by the cri mninal, who had that morning mounted the scufoltd-the town was astounded by hear. sug that a confession had been made. Directly numerous wild reports were flying about, some probable others improbable nothing was too horrible for 'credence; every rumnour was accepted as a truth, and events and actions which had long been buried were called to life again, and coup led with the name and career of Griffin. It was stated and credited that he not only confessed to the murder of Power and Ca hill, but to that of several other persons, and it was with considerable difficulty that we were able to collect anythin...

THE ABYSSINIAN WAR THE DECISIVE BATTLE, From the speciul corrcep.oimlt of the Times of India. Camp before Magdala, April 14. EARLY on the morning of Good Friday, the first brigade, under command of Ge neral Schneider, and accompanied by Sir Charles Stavelay, left the camp on the heights of Wadela, where it. had spent a miserable night in mud and rain, and be fore the descent into the Boshilo ravine. Colonel Payro had been dispatched before.. hand with Pioneers and Sappers to select a site for the camp-which site was to be beyond the range of the guns on Fahla and to hold the pass, sending intimation to Sir Robert Napier as soon as the latter part of his instructions had been complied with. How Colonel Phayro executed the important duty assigned to him the sequel will show. At 10 o'clock on the same day, the se cond brigade, under General Wilby, and accompanied by the Commander-in-Chief and headquarters, left the Wadela plateau, reaching the bottom of the ravine about noon. There Sir...

The Age. SATURDAY, JUNE 20th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 20 June 1868
SATURDAY, JUN 20th, 1808. IN connection with the large amount of crime most unhappily prevalent in the, colony the grave suilject of sen tences appears to occupy much atten tion. To our mind there has appeared for a long time past a direct equality of sentences-in some cases of course. anything but commensurate with of fences committed; and from whatever cause this may have arisen, it is not an unusual circumstance to hear the public express most decided opinions thereon, and against the equity and justice of the sentences awarded in the particular cases to which they make allusion. One unfortunate is found guilty of stealing or embezzling and he receives as a sentence the ex treme penalty attached; another, for a 'like offence, receives but. a light sentence, and that often remitted after a short incarceration. 'Is it tot a just inference .that, seeing this, the.calcu lIting offender carries in his mind the probabilities'( f a short sentence ere the commission of an. offence, and m...
Local and District News. THE AMATEUR CONCERT AT THE ODD FELLOWS' HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 20 June 1868
solt and u istigt Tows. THE AMATEUR CONCERT AT THE ODD FELLOWS' HALL. T'rEUCs was a crowded audience at the Odd Fellows' II ill on Thursday evening to listen the performances of the ladies and gentlemen who took part in the musical and literary en tertainment which had been announced for that time. There could not have been less than two hundred and fifty persons present, amongst whom we noticed many of the lend ing residents of the town acid district. Long before the hour of commencing the entertain ment-a large crowd had, in anticipation of a difficulty in securing good seats, assembled around the doors, and. on these being opened every available sitting or standing place within -the hall was quickly occupied. We have not y4et ascertained the amount realised from the sale of tickets, but imagine that the commit tee will, on getting in the returns from those I to whom the sale of tickets was entrusted, find very handsome proceeds as a reward for their exertions, and which, it the t...

TIME QUEANBEYAN DISTRICT HOSPITAL TO THE EDITOR. - Smt,--On Wednesday last, for the first time in six years, I visited the hospital-in-my capa city as honorary secretary; and guess my sur prise on finding that every sipartznent in the building was occupied by the matron and her, faimily, save one ward. The second ward for male patients was a drawing-room or parlhur; the female wiard was converted into a state bed-room--Ican't say for whose use, as there are so many req Tiring accommodation connec ted with thelfamily ; the'surgery was the po tatne-room or, in other words, the hold-all; what is described on the plan of the building as the matron's lied-room, with a small window or door to communicate with patients at'night, is now the generally-useful toom of the family; and as to the Board-room, it looks as if it savoured more; of the dining-ruirm than any thing else. So that taking the Queanbeyan hospital -iltogether it evidently requires reform. The hospital neverhwas intended to l...

IHoLLow.r's O12NTMENTJ AND PILLs.-Throat A-. fectlons --In alicases of. relaxed, inflamed, and ut? cerated throats, safety may always be secured by rubbing Holloway's ointment upon the glands ender the lower jaw. Its curative powers may be accepted without doubt or distrust. In diphtheria the most marked success has attended its use, in cases where the disease threatened to run a fatal course in spite of the ordinary treatmuet. T'Ihe application of Holloway's ointment fits it well for children's ail ments, where Internal medicines can with difficulty be administered. When pills cannot he swallowed without pain. they should be reduced to a powder, and used conjointly with the ointment, whose cool ing, soothing, and healing action they augment by their purifying powers.
Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 27 June 1868
TO TiE 'EDITOR.. Sin,-After the letter of 1W. G. O'Neill, the lion. sec. of the Queanheyan district hospital, which you iublished on the 20th instar., I hlope the evil' cmplnined of will be investiga ted at the nextcquarterly meeting; so I have nothing to say about it at present. Is. it not a wonder that before Mr O'Neill was honorary secretary no gentle!nan of the comniittee knew the way such in institution ought to be kept ? From his antecedents he ought to know the management of charitable institutions; and, having failed in so many of his undertakings, he may think that the costly building of the hospital would not be too good to shelter his. own famnily, he' being chief wardsaan,." It is a pity, not to say more, that they could not have foiund a gentleman in the district willing' to .take his 'honourable `office. -Mr ;O'Neill spehks of reiorm, and to biring, this forward he begins to insult not only the matron, who is the only paid servant, but-those belonging to -her.; and per...
