General Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861

-o Mn. SM3ILER's OPINIoxs IN RE nIR. FORS TER'S ELECION.-" Alpha," in his contribu-.. tions to the Y'ass Courier, under the title of " Mr. Smiler's opinions," says :-I see that the Chronicle has a crow over Mr. Forster's election, and flaps its wings exultingly as it prates about the ' tools' of Queanbeyan.. What about the tools of the opposite party, who were led on by as pretty and rampant a clique as ever failed to do any thing? But what can we expect from a journal of' so vas cillating a tendency, whose aim' has always been not to offend any party, but to toddle along with both, veering a little now to one side, and now to another-for fear of affecting its circulation. H-Iowever, it is now regarded in its proper light, and its teachings are taken for what they are worth. The electors of Syd ney East and Qucanbeyan had a perfect right to elect or reject whom they 'pleased, and I know that the people of Qucanboyan are not disposed to accept the homilies of the Chronicle as gospel ...

CHINESE CHARCOAL-BURNERS. BARK HUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861

CHINESE CHARCOAL-BURNERS. BARK HUTS. OUR readers, says the Empire, will re- collect to have seen in those columns a short time ago, a report of an inquest on the body of a child said to be the offspring of a Chinese charcoal-burner, residing at Liberty Plains. Having heard a good deal about this Chinese Utopia, we visited it yesterday, and have arrived at the conclusion that it is no Utopia at all, but a scene of vice, filth, and social degradation. Some ten or eleven miles from Syd- ney, on the Great Southern line of road —(what a delusion to apply the adjec- tive "great" to this "Slough of Des- pond ") —there is a primitive township delighting in the vulgar name of "The Bark Huts," and situated on the margin of "Liberty Plains " a title which might very appropriately be converted into " Libertine Plains," as will more fully appear in the sequel. The " Bark Huts " are numerous but scattered. As human habitations nothing more wretch- ed can be imagined. We have heard a good, deal ab...

COLLECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 20 June 1861

COLLECTOR. From our own Correspondent. LARCENY ON THE HIGHWAY.--On Tuesday, the 11th instant, as Edward Sheekey, servant   to D. P. M. Hulbert, was returning from Goulburn, driving Miss Hulbert in a spring cart, the vehicle became embedded in a deep rut, and the united efforts of horse and driver to extricate it proved unavailing, Sheekey then proceeded to the nearest habitation, which was but a short distance off, where, having safely located the young lady in his charge, he returned to look after the horse and cart, which sure enough he found where he left them; but unfortunately, during his absence some thief, prompted no doubt by that low vice, curiosity, or with olfactory nerves of more than ordinary power, had visited the cart and carried off a five-gallon keg of brandy. It is to be regretted that up to the present time all efforts to discover the perpe- trator of the audacious theft have been fruit less. June 13th, 1861.

Letters to the Editor   -0- [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.]   TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In your issue of the 13th of this month there is an effusion from the pen of your "own correspondent" at this place, and judging from the subject-matter of his letter, it is clear that he was at the time hard up for something to send you in the shape of news. I look upon that epistle as a cowardly attack upon a very worthy man (Mr. Ditcham) after he has left the neighbourhood. Your "own" seems to have kept a strict account of all our local police proccedings during the last twelve or fourteen months; moreover, he seems so very much interested in police duties, that I would advise him to apply to the chief-constable for a billet in the force. Your "own" says, that your contemporary at Yass was indignant at Ditcham's conduct at a certain inquest held here. I would ask, Who f...

WHO SHOULD ELECT MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

WHO SHOULD ELECT MEMBERS 01 PARLIAMENT. (From de Illawar, a Mercury.) Universal suffrago has few advocates in this colony. There does not, in fact, appear. to be any politicians who think that every man, woman, and child ought to have a vote in the election of legislators. By lawv.no woman, no child, brio' alien} no. Chinese, male or female, can vote. And by law none can vote unless his naine be on the electoral roll. There must be some reason, good or bad, for these. limitatio Women, children, all con tribute more `or less towards the expense of government; and are all liable to punishment for infractione of the law. Why.are they not allowed to vote ? There is, it seems to us, at least one very good' reason' for excluding women, children, and perhaps aliens, from, that act by which members of parliament are appointed. But for the same reason, and no other, we think that many men should be excluded who are admitted. 3Wo. object to, women and chil dren voting, solely because they hav...

Select Poetry. OUR GOOD TIME IS IN THE PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

OUR GOOD TIME IS IN THE PRESENT. I hate the whine of discontent That marks the time we live in, That speaks of olden times well spent, To our forefathers given; Some sing their wealth and competence, And some their worth are humming; While some despise their taste and sense, And sing, ' The good time's coming.' What though the future may be great, Or past were good and pleasant; We have no share in either state, Our duty's in the present ! They'll have their wants and trials too, - Their light is not still shining;. And we've enough within our view To keep us from repining. The landscape's lovely to the eye, When we from distance view it; Yet there are faults we may descry Wheno'er we wander through it; But while the scenes before, behind, With duty are abounding, We may be able here to view Some charms our steps surrounding. The times we have, which some regret, To our seed will be olden And they, with unborn poets yet, Will call this period golden ! And they, will chant their grac...

TIGER CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

TIGER ICHASE:' THE following 'acount is 'extrac ted from the.North LincolnSphinx, a regimental paper, published at Graham's Town. The writer, after alluding to his sporting experience of all kinds, and. in all quarters of the globe, declares that he never. witnessed so novel or intensely-exciting a chase as that about to 'be described: Not long ago I spent a few days at Fort Brown, a small military post on the banks of the Great Fish. 'River, whenre' my friend was, stationed. One evening as we were return ing' home. after a, somewhat fa tiguing day's back-shooting, we. .were startled by hearing a most extraordinary noise not far from us. It seemed as if all the de mons in the infernal' regions had been unchained, and were amu sing themselves by trying to frighten us poor, mortals by, their yelling. We stood in breathless expectation, not 'knowing what could possibly be the cause of this diabolical row, with all sorts of strange conjectures flashing across our minds. . Nearer and nea...

FINE ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

FINE ENGLISH. WE make the following extracts from an article entitled " Samples of Fine English," published in the last number of the "Cornhill Magazine".: I do not know whether the worst spe cimens of fine English are to be found in sermons or newspapers. I rarely read or hear- sermons- whose' language is pure, and as it ought to be, easy to 1 be understood by the unlearned. Yet, with such books as the bible and prayer book, it seems, strange that our clergy 1 should be amongst the worst writers of English. For in our bible and prayer book we have, if we make, allowance for the antique diction, a perfect model of what our mother tongue. ought to-be. It was . observed by Coleridge that it seemed to be by a kind of providence that the tfranslation of the bible, and the works of the greatest English writers- Shakspeare, Bacon, and Iooker-should occur. about the. same time, so as by. a double power to fix the language just when it was in its highest perfection. The pages of a magazine ...

The Golden Age. THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

ý^ 1 THTURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1861.. TIE present lull in political life affords an opportunity to the provincial jour nalist of- turning his attention and that of the public to matters of .a local cha racter. The question before us just now is the magistracy of the district. That an addition to the list of gentlemen holding the commission of the peace and adjudicating on the Queanbeyan Bench is, necessary, may be argued from the frequency with which the adminis tration of justice is suspended. for hours together on the ordinary days of Petty Sessions. Many a time have we our selves in common with a host of others whose business occasionally demands: their attention at the Court-house on the clay mentioned, been necessitated to fritter away our piecious time,-to our selves especially more valuable than gold,-until it spited the convenience of our country magistrates, or any one of -therm to sit with the Police Magis-. trate to form a quoini for the'despatcli of business. . And many a time...

WESLEYAN-METHODIST CHAPEL. FIRST ANNIVERSARY. Txst first anniversary of the Wesleyan Me-. thodist Chapel, Queanbeyan, was celebrated on Sunday and Monday last. The -Sunday services comprised two excellent and practical sermons preached by the Rev. U. H. Gaud of Yass, the superintendent minister of the. Circuit. The text in the morning being from Revelations, Chapter 2, verse 10 ; and that in the evening from Hebrews, Chapters 12, verses 24, 25, The congregations were, with one exception, the largest that ever assembled in the Chapel,-at night in particular, when the building was well filled. The most ear nest attention was paid to the discourses de livered by the reverend gentleman, who seems to have created a very salutary impression uponithe minds of most wiho had the happi ness of hearing him. In the afternoon Mr. Gaud delivered an appropriate address. to the Sabbath-school children, the catechetical style of which was admirably adapted both to instruct the chil dren, and test th...
