GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 June 1861
GUNDAROO. &nbsp; (From our own Correspondant.) OUR LATE DISTRICT CONSTABLE.--The most remarkable circumstance that has occurred here for a long time back, is the removal of our District Constable. His residence here has been a short and merry one; and his removal from amongst us will not cause much regret. I wish (if you can afford space) to give you a short history of this official's career at Gundaroo. He arrived here about twelve or fourteen months ago, and was to do great things. According to his talk, not a few months, nor even a few weeks, were to pass over his head until he had exterminated, root and branch, the cattle-stealers and sly-grog-sel- lers.. But, alas! his presumption was too great ; for now that he has left us we are just in the same position as when he arrived; he has not brought an individual cattle-stealer or sly-grog-seller to justice. Perhaps such do not exist here (?) and that may be his excuse. However, to commence; when he arrived here his first pe...

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 13 June 1861
THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1861. TIE recent affray between the Chinese and Europeans at Native Dog Creek will have a strong tendency to convince the most sceptical of the danger of permiitting hordes of this semi-bar barous race, with their ferocious dis positions, disgusting habits, and im moral practices, to intermingle with the European population and over run the territory. Already have they defiled the land with their contamina ting touch. Instances are fresh in the memory of us all, of their bestiality, ferocity, and general depravity. We need, however, to summon but two proofs to make good our position : The first, an evidence of their ferocity, and that shall be the outrageous and purely savage demonstration at the Native Dog 'Creek, which fuinishes its with an ex ample of what they would do were they only strong enough in number; our second instance, in proof of their brutal depravity, is the recent disclosure of their mode of life at the Bark Huts, which may be taken as an example...
EUROPEAN SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861
EUROPEAN SUMMARY. The Home News,.in its summary of Eu ropean affairs, has the following general sum mary :-The prospects of an European. war thickening upon us:; the darkest omens come from 'Denmark. We are by no means sure that we qu'te understand the actual state of the situations in their minute phases, so con fident and perplexing are the reports we get about it from Berlin, Paris, and Copenhagen. The first flash of a cannon is expected, andif resolved upon, will bring France to the side of the Danes, an extremity for which' Ger many is said not only to be fully prepared, but to be rather desirous of bringing about, partly to afford an opportunity to Prussia of taking. the field as the leading German power, and thus by lier presence strengthening the progress of German unity, and clilefly to di vert French ambition for the present from the banks of the Rhine. Austria cannot. afford to take a prominent part in the conflict, if indeed she should parti cipate in it at all, she has ...
Gems from Poets. THE STREAMLET. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861
-0 TIHE STREAMLET. I saw a little streamlet flow Along a peaceful val ; A thread of silver, soft and slow, It wandered down the dale. Just to do good it seemed to move, Directed by the hand of Love. The valley smiled in living green, A tree, which near it gave From noontide bheat a friendly screen, Drank of its limpidwave. The swallow brushed it with-her wing, And followed its meandering. But not alone to plant and bird, That little stream was known, Its gentle murmur far was heard, A friend's familiar tone. It glided by. the cotter's door, It blessed the labours of the poor. And would that I could thus be found, While travelling life's brief way, A humble friend to all around, Where'er my footsteps stray, Like that pure stream with tranquil breast Like it, still blessing and still blest. STODAUT,

GININDERRA-CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861
GININDERRA-CREEK. From a Correspondent. IT may be interesting to some of your rea ders to know that a building for the use of the English Church has been erected here; a slab building it is true, but a neat little structure nevertheless, measuring 16 feet by 80 feet; ex clusive of the porch, which is 8 feet square. It was opened on the 12th of last month by the Rev. Mr. Smith, who, in addition to his Canberra duties, officiates here in the after noon of every alternate Sabbath. From the numtber of settlers living in the neighbour hood we may reckon, I think, upon a numer ous congregation. A Sabbath-school, I am led to understand, is about to be established in connexion with the above place of worship. June 18th, 1801.
A VISIT TO TARBAN CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861
A VISIT TO TARBAN CREEK. A FEW woeeks since, says the Australian H1ome Companion, we paid a visit to this interesting institution. The building,' which bears marks of age in its appearance, is delightfully situa ted a short distance from the township, stand ing on an elovation; it commands an extei sive view, and is undoubtedly most health fully placed. Entering the somewhat dismal gateway, which forms the front, we were in troduced to Mr. Statham, the Superintendent, who, with the utmost courtesy, at once con ducted us to the interior. Passing through a second gateway we entered a spacious 'court yard, surrounded on all sides by high walls. The sun was shining pleasantly upon it, and upon its cccupants, who consisted of from eighty to one hundred men, all attired in the costume of the Asylum. In a moment we were surrounded-hands grasped our own in the warmest friendship, and we were greeted as old acquaintance by several of the inmates, who insisted upon it that we had met them of ...

zuTI1JRiSDAY, JUNE 20, 1861. iTn' intelligence to hand by the 'NonruAn's mail, although perhaps not revealing a state of .things in European afnliirs quite equal to the expectations of the anxious inhabitants of these Colonies, possesses notwithstandinig a considerable degree of interest,- and in dicates a coming struggle in which almost, if not quite, all the powers of Europe will be involved. Might against right, as is often the case, seems: to be the cause of much of the present dis quietude. The grasping spirit of Russia is unabated, and in her endeavours to pre serve possession of the unjustly acquired territory of the oppressed Poles, she has not hesitated to perpetrate the massacres and atrocities' which are usually the price paid. by, the: defenceless::prey to territorial: aggrandisement. .
