FALL ON THE HOPKINS. The Hopkins river rises   in the south of the Pyre- nees range, and flows     about 130 miles south- west into the sea, near   Warrnambool. In it's   upper portion the river does not flow perma-     nently, but subsides in summer into a chain of water holes, varying from   a few yards to a quarter of a mile in length, and   some of them very deep. It is fed by various creeks, and flows through the townships of Wickliffe, Chatsworth, Hexbam, Al- lansford and Framling- ham. About a mile above ts junction with Bruck- nell Creek there is a   fall of about 45 in height, of which an illustration is here given.         FALL ONTHE HOPKINS.
