DUCK RIVER (FROM A CORRESPONDENT). &nbsp; &nbsp; As I have seen very little notice of this locality lately in your enterprising paper I take this opportunity of furnishing you with a few facts relative to the progressing apace of this district. To the D.R. the last six months of the old year were full of enter- prise, and in the future unrecorded history each inhabitant of this place will look back to the past few months as the memorable starting point from which to date our 'Hagira', or flight upwards. ' It was but a few months ago that residents determined to unite and bring the just re- quirements of this district, its harbour capabilities, etc, before the Ministers. For years past we had been content to look upon this place as the limit of civilisation, and therefore requiring the smallest possible amount of recognition at the hands of officialdom, great or small ; for years past we had seen our port becoming gradually &nbsp; destroyed and closed, and pro...
