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

GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) NARROW ESCAPE.---On Tuesday last some of the men that are digging at Brooks'-creek, went on a prospecting tour to see if they could succeed in getting gold at Gundaroo-creek: on riding down the road about two miles below the public-house, one of the men was run against a tree, and nearly killed. ---Dr. Beales was sent for at once, arrived on the spot with out delay, and had the man removed to his own place, where he lay in a very precarious state. However by strict attention and judi- cious management he succeeded in restoring him so far that he was able to be removed   home that night. Mnuch praise is due to Dr.   Beales for his attention and promptness. Had   he not been in attendance almost immediately,   it the man's life in all probability would have been sacrificed.   Nothing of importance is stirring. Money   is scarce; and I am sorry Brooks'-creek is not &...

Letters to the Editor. [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. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

Letters to the Editor.   [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--My Churchwardens have noticed a   most wicked and crafty insinuation against   my morality in the shape of an article from "your own Correspondent." That his ob- ject was to make churchmen believe "A FIVE GALLON KEG OF BRANDY" was stolen from my cart, that belonged to myself, is equally evident, or he would have told the truth. The plain truth is not in that communica- tion. Upon hearing of the humbug about   it, I enquired of the man servant what it all meant. Edward Sheekey said, that as he was leaving Goulburn, an innkeeper there   (Elliott) formerly known to me in Gun- ning, begged leave of him to send out a small cask of rum free of carriage in my cart, for his brother-in-law at Collector.   He consented, knowing, he said,...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 27 June 1861

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. SIR,--In your last appeared a letter signed     "Boots," a very respectable signature for the writer; I think he must, if he has lived long on Gundaroo, have been buried in his boots, inas- much as he was not able to see that Mr. Ditcham ever did has duty. However, I have no doubt on my mind, but that he is one of the backers-up alluded to in my last, and it would not do for him now to desert our late district-constable, seeing that he is a little distance away from here, he also having had a good deal to do with the contemp- tible proceedings that took place in "Quibbling-   corner" for the last twelve or fourteen months. It is now a long time since a letter was penned by "Boots;" the last one he wrote signed "One     of the Jury" and which appeared in the "Yass   Courier," was written in favour of Ditcham, and he received a very severe castigation for it at the hands of t...

NEW ZEALAND. . INCREASED PROSPECTS OF WAR. WE have intelligence to the 12th instant," be ing four days later than the previous news, and everything augurs a speedy collision be tween the British troops and the Maories. The following remarks are from the Newo Zea lander :-The intelligence which has recently been received from Waikato is of such a na ture as to cause regret and deep anxiety amongst the friends to the native people, and to demand the calmest and most attentive con sideration by all who are interested in the preservation of peace in this Northern Is land. The great runanga, as we learn, has not yet taken place, but from all that has trans pired at the several meetings preliminary thereto, it is believed that the terms stipulated for by the Governor in the declaration recently addressed to Waikato, will not lte accepted. Whilst they declare that they do not repudiate the supremacy of the Queen; whilst they in sist that their King flag is meant merely as a symbol of that ...

ITIURS.DAY, JULY q,, 1861. Oxi the subject ,of' the Magistracy, at which we took a hasty glance last week, We have a few more words. to. say. We have already briefly answered the ques tion, Who should be Magistrates? To. refresh tlhi memories of our readers, and to elucidate the subject. more fully, we repeat, Those of our number. who are possessed of the mental and moral endowments which give them an acknowledged: superiority over the mass of mankind. These are the only indis pensible requisites, and either of them is absolutely indispensibl.: '. The mental ability may, and unquestionably does, exist in many holding this truly weighty, dignified, and responsible office, while the moral element is either very low, or altogether :wanting;' and .:the result -is, biassed and' unrighteous decisions. Again: The moral qualifications may' exist, but without the assistance of the mental charactdristic of a sound and enlightened judgement, the result will bpthe same, or nearly so-an erroneou...

-0 IN reply to a petition from 250 .TIe brew congregations, a declaration has been published by the Prussian govern ment, intimating their intention for the future to avail themselves of the ser vices of Jews in the various departments of the State. This is carrying out the spirit of the law enacted in 1848, but which hitherto had been a dead letter. CHRISTIANS AT MADAGASGAR.--Aino ther dismal record of persecutions of the native Christians of Madagascar has reached us. The blood-thirsty ·queen, who has been the scourge of the island for thirty years past, and has in vain put forth all her power to root out Christianity from its soil, seems to have renewed her energies in that bad cause within the last few years-still without success. ;By a strange self contradiction, she has just put tb death such ot her relatives and great officers as would have perpetuated her diabolical policy towards the Christians, and has thus seemingly secured the succession to her own son, who for years pas...

AN JNTERVIEW WITH CALCRAFT. A daily contemporary furnishes the follow ing characteristic particulars respecting Cal craft, the -Dundry murderers, and other per sons who" have suffered the extreme. penalty of the law at his hands: Many persons imagine that the very pecu liar nature of NMr.' Calcratft's profession must render him altogether unlike other ordinary beings, and that the exceedingly disagreeable and unpleasant character of his duties must , have blunted the finer and holier feelings of humanity-that lie must necessarily be a very low and very depraved sort of "man, and that an interview with him-especially ':iifter an execution-must produce a sickening sensa tion of disgust, if not a suspicion of something like pollution.

BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 July 1861

BROOKS'-CREEK DIGGINGS. (Firom an Eye-:witness.) According to promise I- send you a state ment of facts the above diggings. I must just tell you that I don't ground my statements upon the mere ipse dizit of another party, but have had ocular demonstration of the facts I record, having just paid the diggings a visit. I think your own correspondent must have meant seventy (70) people, not seven (7) ; as you say, he must have been mistaken. Ac cording to a rough calculation I should judge the population to be over 70. To my surprise, I saw slab buildings going up, and 'whole families located, in several places ; also, a store in the course of erection.. I enclose you a sample of the precious metal, which Mr. McLeod, a practical digger, dug from the bank, in my presence, that gentleman wishing me to make it known as publicly as possible. I can vouch for the fact I state, as I saw it dug out, cariried to the creek, and washed. Mr. McLeod is of my opinion, that it only requires a popu lat...

DUNAR.--The posi tion of the remains of the hull of the unfor tunateDunbar has at last been ascertained. much uncertainty has hitherto prevailed as to direction in which the remains of the wreck had drifted after the storm in which the ves sel was lost, and Captain Crook, the harbour master, had given directions some months since to Mr. Pilot Jenkins to keep a look-out, and inform him whenever he thought, from the calmness of the weather, and the smooth ness i7 the water, that there was a probability of discovering the remains of the unfortunate ship. Yesterday the water was remarkably still outside the Heads, with an almost total absence of swell, and pilots Jenkins and Ful lerton proceeded in a whaleboat to the vicinity of the scene of the wreck. After some time they found the object of their search, about 200 yards from the spot where the man John son was discovered, and about 50 feet from the foot of the cliff underneath the flagstaf...

Select Poetry. THEY FADE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 July 1861

SELECT POETRY THEY FADE. Thus fade they, ever, ever--- To fade is beauty's doom ; They come as hopes, but never May ripen into bloom. A little shadow chills them, The sun may scorch anon; The frost wind calls, the shadow falls, And the beautiful are gone. o hope not over, ever, A bright thing shall endure ! If it be but 'very beautiful,' The end of it is sure. Hopes dear as life, an angel wife -- A child --a darling one-- The frost wind calls, the shadow falls, And the beautiful are gone. Death is a tasteful spoiler, He hath a dainty eye The young for him, and the light of limb, Though weary ones are by. He will steal into a circle, With his shadow darkening on The frost wind calls, the shadow falls, And the beautiful are gone. Yet stay thee not, oh, angel ! It is thy mission here : And all are thine, by grant divine, The fresh leaf, and the sere. But only come for me too, With the beautiful anon; I will journey with thee gladly, To know where they are gone. H.C.

GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 4 July 1861

GUNDAROO. (From our own C'orrespondent.) "I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and, therefore, the truth I speak, im- pugn it whose list." In reference to the diggings at Brooks'-creek, you seem to think that I was wrong in my es- timate of the number of diggers there. I therefore beg to inform you that a day or two previous to the day on which my last was penned, the number of men there was only (7) sevens and in justification of what I then stated, and now repeat, I beg to refer you to my informant, Mr. C. Masters, jun. There were in his party four (himself, his father, and two other men) ; another party of two (Hill and Monks) ; and one man by himself (Bur- ton). If more than seven can be made of the above lot, I am puzzled. At the time the "Goulburn Herald" stated there were (30) thirty on the ground, there were nothing of the kind. From what I hear there are now about (30) thirty on the creek, but what they are doing I cannot tell. I will visi...

-0 POLICE COURT. SATURDAY. LA?cENY.-An individual, rejoicing in the singularly appropriato name of Jobn Steel, was brought before their worships W. F. Hayley Esq., and the Police Magistrate, charged with stealing a coat from Mr. William Bowen of Molonglo. Prisoner had been in the. employ of Mr. fBowen, and about ten days before his apprehension had a dispute with Mr. Bowen's partner, Mr. P. M'Alister, which resulted in a mutual consent to cancel the agreement ex isting between them. Prisoner was cousc quently discharged. A day or two before the prisoner left, the prosecutor was using a grey tweed coat, which he left either in the stable or kitchen, and wanting the coat again a con ple of days after the prisoner left his service, sought it and could not find it. Prisoner was suspected, and the coat was afterwards brought to prosecutor from Bungendore by the mail boy. At Bungendore the prisoner offered the coat to Mr. Carroll, saying lhe had bought it for 25/. at Mr. Rutledge's store ...

Letters to the Editor.   -0- [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed     under this head, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.]   TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Dear Sir,--Allow me, a very humble in- dividual, a small space in your very valu- able journal. I am but a new hand; but still, I know a thing or two. As this is my first appearance in print, you will, I trust, excuse my style. I would advise you, Mr. Editor, to shut up those two worthies, Your Own and Boots. You can easily do so, by making them pay up for their scribbling. Happening to know both parties, I would remind Your Own that Boots has written some fifteen letters in the local journals since the time he refers to; so that Your Own is wide of the mark. Being a professional gentleman, and by their appearance judging that both Your Own and Boots will soon need my services, I would not give offence to either; but to the latter I would say, ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--I cordially agree with your remarks in last week's 'Age' concerning the necessity which   exists for some additional appointments to the Commission of the Peace for the Queanbeyan Bench. It is, to say the least of it, vexatious, that the public should be put to serious inconvenience from the non-attendance of J.P.s who live at a dis- tance, and are often necessarily prevented from (?) to town; and thus hinder the public (?) from proceeding, as well as causing trou- ble and expense to persons who have cases in (?) of whom come from a considerable   distance and are compelled either to remain in   town or return home again, and then come back, in (?) of a second Magistrate being then found (?) which, however, never happens before twelve (?) o'clock in the day. Of course, it would be (?) to those gentlemen who have J.P. at-     tached to their names, to attend at the Police-office (?...
