VIEW ON THK RIVER GLENELG, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The rivor Glenelg, named after a nobleman who was at one time Secretary of State . for the Colonies, flows from the Grampians, between the Victorian ranges, and divides the Wimmera distnot from Dundas. It is: fod by .innumerable 'tributaries, ino principal of which are the Rivers Chotwynd, Wando, Wannon, Stokes and Crawford. It forms the boundary between Follett on tho west, and Dundas and Normanby on the east, and empties itself into Dis covery Bay, between Capes Northumberland and Bndgewater. Though irregular in its course, it is very uniform in its width, which ib about 110 yards at the greatest ; ltB mean depth fer 60 miles from the sea is about three fathoms, but, unfortunately for navigation, tho bar is shallow, and as thero is but little tide on that coast, tho greatest rise in the flow of the river, judging by the floating weeds, does not exceed a foot.

THE GERMAN TURNVEREIN ASSOCIATION GATHERING. The German Gymnastic Association held their annual fete at the Survey paddock.on Monday. This reunion is always looked forward to with consider able interest, and no expense is spared to make it what it really lays olaim to, the picnic par excellence of the season. Everything is conceived on a gigantic scale, and with a becoming regard to tho multitude accustomed to' attend these gatherings. The true German is too cosmopolitan in his sentiments to verge upon the clannish, and it is not the least pleasant 'feature of this annual gathering to find, all classes of colonists are equally invited to; participate in the enjoyment. The gymnastic enter tainment of Jho Turpveroin is one of the great at traction's bf this, fete, and no , moan rival of the Leotard and Lentpn troupe, the former of whotn were engaged. at the Forresters' gathering.

THE NEW YEAR'S FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1866

THE NEW YEAR'S FESTIVITIES. ? . f ? The pleasure seeking portion of. our population muke New Year's Day one of special enjoyment. We are fast gliding into the habit of our Gaelic colonists in making it tho day of general festivity ,'' when it is no sin to manifest a proneness to in dulgence, and absolution for any sins of omission or commission is freely accorded. Christmas Day partakes too much of a semi-religious festival to chime with tho disposition of the general public, whilst the advent of the neyv year is the carnival of our indulgence after the '' solemn reflections which the expiring 'year is calculated to evoke. The . day was pbserveji as a close holiday, the great attraction being ' tho Melbourne race-course, to which ? tens of- thousands wended their way, where they found as good a bill of fare as: the most 'insatiable turfite gourmand could digest. But all Melbourne was not on the Flpmington race-cpjirse. Some thousands were assembled in the Zoological Gardens and took...

NEW ZEALAND. I Tho correspondent of' the Sydney -Morning Herald, writing on the 22nd;Decemb'er,'sdys':— ' 'The most interesting nov'vs of tho 'day is the an nouncement that the Government has at last relieved the 'militia and volunteers' throughout - this province from actual service. The ' citizens in. Auckland'are now no_ more in loco militum than those of Otago, and the relief is a jnbfe renl . ono than might at firsj; sight be credited.' It ia quite true that no call has been made on tbeir services for a good while, but thpn they could not say how soon thejv might, bo called up for drill. Under the present slatp of things they know exactly -what can be required of them in the' way of drill and parade, nnd they are prepared dp do it '..-, A more curious affair, however, is that another pro clamation does the sumo for the regiments of \Voikato militia men.
