DR. JRERETON'S LECTURE ON THE TURKISH BATI. -4---t Dr. J. Le Gay Brereton delivered a lecture on this subject in the Hall of the School of Arts, Sydney, lately. The attendance was unusually large. Mr. N. H. Eagar introduced the lecturer, who, after having rapidly reviewed the history of the bath, and glanced at the circumstances that have led to its perpetuation among the oriental nations, observed that the bath might be described as a drama, enacted in five acts, which he then proceeded to explain. The first thing to be done by persons under going the process was, to divest themselves of the cumbrous and disagreeable clothing ordinarily worn. Having done that, they would enter into an apartment termed ,the Tepidarium, through which is constantly passing a current of heated air, ranging from 100 to 120 degrees. Here they would remain until brought into a state of gentle perspiration. They would then proceed to the Sudatorium, where, in consequence of the warmer temperature, they wou...

An interesting report of a Native Institution at King George's Sound, published in June, 1858, was, a day or two ago, handed to us, with the request that it might appear in our columns. Presuming it will prove acceptable to many of our readers, we give the following reprint of it. The Asylum for the children of aboriginal natives of Annesfield, King George's Sound, Western Australia, at present contains eighteen children, thirteen girls, and five boys. The ages of the six elder girls are from ten to fif teen or sixteen; the younger ones are from eight years down to eighteen months; the eldest boy is about eight years old, and the youngest is just four years and seven months.
