Dr. Thomson ex-M.L.A., died with the old year on Sunday night, in tho 66th year of his age. His career touoh- ingly illustrates the lights and shadows of colonial society. Arriv- ing in Victoria, when it was Port   Phillip, thirty years ago, he settled in Geelong, and professional suc- cess enoonraged him to enter public life, when men of tho right respect able stamp were raro enough.

E. lat. It is about 10 miles in extreme length N.W. to S.E., and 7J miles in extreme breadth, separated from '-the main land by a strait, which, at Symoon Pass, is only about a quarter of a mile wide. ' The general appear ance of the island is somewhat picturesque and curious, but, on the whole, exceedingly unpre possessing, being composed mostly of lofty barren rooka that rise from the sea to heights of 1000 and 2008 feet, and so abruptly as to have hardly any spice to build . upon. There are . no trees of any size ?n the island, and few valleys of any extent.- Some rank vegetable here and there, with a little herbage and brushwood growing in the intervals between the masses of granite, and a few plants, form almost its o...

' T HE S HE NAN DO A H A T W O R K— see paxib 4. THE SHENANDOAH AT WOBK. Our view on page one gives a practical illustra tion of the piratical warfare carried on by the notorious Captain Waddell of the Shentndoah, and ?which has justly excited against him the public feel ing, not only of America, but also . of the whole' civilised world. On leaving Melbourne, Captain 'Waddell made his way to that part of the North Pacific which he knew to he the fishing ground of the Massachusetts whalers, and proceeded to capture them while they were engaged in their peaceful occu pation, though he had reason to believe that the war was over, and that he had no longer a commission from any existing Government. One morning in the month of June ten ships which Tie had thus captured in Behring's Straits, were relieved of ? their crews and then set on fire. The spectacle of so many ships burning; at the same time, with huge icebergs all round them,' must have been somewhat sublime for the mere, outward...

The number of members to bo. re turned was thirty-three, representing twenty-one con stituencies. The feverish excitement, which had been increasing throughout the whole contest, reached its culmination on this occasion ; tho three divisions of the city, the suburbs, and the country districts, where the polling took place, were the scenes of intense eagerness and activity. Tho rumored interference of the Home office with the privilege of self-government, possessed by the people of the colony, appeared to have rendered the electors only more determined in their support of those who. had pledged themselves to support the rights of the Assembly.

DEATH BY LIGHTNING. A man named Ewan Kennedy was recently killed by lightning on the Loddon Plains. On the 26th alt. an inquest was held at Wedderburne on the body, by the district coroner.

Whilst thus engaged, heavy thunder and lightning was heard. This was about eleven o'clock in the morn-, ing. As soon ns the whole of the sheep were watered, the two shepherds left the banks of the river, and proceeded towards a plain, in the centre of whioh they had left a cart, containing their blankets and provisions.
