?t'nta' mril IkcirjicH. .-?I.; .? FLORENCE O'BRIEN. . AN IRISH TALE. ?' Continued from our Last. . 'What a heaven of happiness is at this momeiit enshrined in the bosoms 'of these young creatures !'* said the priest cno day, half in soliloquy and half to Mrs. Rooney, a9 he stood at her Ivindow gazing upon them, as they returned from their daily ramble round the bay, and to Florence's young garden at Dame's Court. Though evidently delighted, nay, absorbed with each other, they both looked up brightly and smilingly as Florence kissed her hand to him — her venerated friend. 'What pity, Major Eertie, that lovers could not be. tfanslated without tasting of marriage ?' This sounded very like heresy flip ATninr n.ml T\frs.

BRAID WOOD. ONE HUNDRED AND THREE OUNCE NUGGET!! [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 25 August 1856

BRAID WOOD. ?ONE HUNDRED AND .THREE OUNCE NUGGET'! t (From the Qoulburn Herald .) The gratifying news of the discovery at the Little River of a nugget, consisting purely of gold, weighing between 8 and 9 pounds, reached town on Sunday last. We confess we were not so much surprised at this substantial revelation of tho auriferous richness of that locality aa some of our neighbours, for we have insisted for years that it is highly probable that gold in immense quantities and huge lamps are lying concealed beneath the soil there. The Rev. Mr. Clarke lias repeatedly expressed a similar opinion, and the discovery which has just been made we verily be lieve to be merely the tmt or a series that will verily our pre dictions* Before we placo the letter of our Braidwood corres pondent before our readers, we would take leave to mention a fact, in connection with gold seeking in tho neighbourhood of Mon garlowe, which has recently come to our knowledge. Some years ago, when the .auriferous cha...

THE NEW MINISTRY. The mancsuvre of the Donaldson' Ministry in retiring from the positions which they obtained .unconstitutionally, and which they neither could hope to retain with .credit to themselves nor useful ness to the country, has been signally, and deservedly, frustrated. Jylr. Cowper, the leader of the Opposition, has succeeded in forming a Ministry. We heartily congratulate the country on this result ; and hail with satisfaction this recognition of real merit and ability. Above all others, Mr. .Cowper has been, from the first attainment of Responsible Government, the most generally looked for as deserving of the hononr, as well as equal .to the duties, of laying the corner stone of our state edifice. He lias worked long and unceasingly in the cause of the people. For many years, he has been the most industrions and indefatigable of our public men. His hitory is entirely colonial. His whole life has been spent in the colony; his energies directed solely to the developement ...
