SJIOALiWEN/ - [.FROy A CORUESPOMJET.] ' 'Tho ?weh.theri for tho.last week or two, ,1ms been very cold. J never noticed, in this distriet, as heavy frosts as we have had from the 20th to the 30th July. On theafternoon of Tuesday last, a valuable horse and cart, the property of Mr. Robertson, butcher, at Greenhiil, tumbled down tho south bank of the Rhnalhnvaii River: and. I feel sorrv to relate, the horse was killed on the spot. This is the third accident of the kind that (venrred at or near tho snme spot. Unless tho inhabitants fence oft ihe river from the road, there is iio knowing what amount ot damage may take place. Srme six or eight weeks ago, Mr. O. Murray's horse and cart fell down exactly the same spot where' Mr. Robertson's horse was killed. Surely it would not cost the inhabitants much to fence in this dangerous bank, am!, unless they do so, the people's lives nro noisnfe. .'The examination of the Gooddog school took place on Monday last, in the presence of a large assembl...

KIAMA, VERSUS MONOPOLY. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856
KIAMA, VERSUS MONOPOLY. ( To the Editor of the Illaivarra Mercury.) Sir— You will do me a particular favour by allowing me, through the columns of your journal, to make a few remarks relative to a letter which appeared in your issue of the 24th inst., and signed ' Vox Populi.' Now, in my opinion, the writer is totally ignorant of the pro ceedings of the Steam Navigation Company's, viz., the ' Kiama,' ' lllawarra,' and ' Nora Creina.'' He hails from Bulli — and that being a portion of the settlement distant from the port of Wollongong about 7 or S miles, and from that of Kiama, say 40. It is more than probable, that the greater portion of his remarks are founded upon mere hear-sav or bush^gossip ; or, otherwise, it may be that this famed 'Vox Populi' is .one of those fairand easy far-in- the-day customers, who thought to saddle his horse in another stable (better in his opinion than the old one) and was eorely disappointed. He says 'that several of the most influential shareholders (...

Cult's nuii Ikffrip, FLORENCE O'BRIEN, AN IRISH TALE. Continue!) fro^ our Last. At tlie close of our last chapter, it wag narrated, that, in about two months after the memorable St. Patrick's ijDay Ball, at Portmullina, Squire Joyce had been suddenly arrested upon a charge of high treason; and that the nuptial benediction liavimr been pronounced even in. pre- sence of the King's messengers, Florence, by a singular ; stretch of indulgence, was permitted to accompany her \ husband to Dublin, to spend her honeymoon in a prison, if this farther grace were vouchsafed. The intermediate period had been one of increasing anxiety to Florence and her friends. The country was now on the verge qf the deepest horrors of that cruel civil war which was already desolating- Ireland. Intelligence of the arrest of the conspirators at Oliver Bond's in Dublin had reached Portmullina two or three days before the Conciliation Ball, and had been the main motive in lead ing Florence tq suggestthat John Joyc...
