gi~ct~aneouS, THE TALE OF A DOG.-Le Petit Journal of Paris, which contains from time to time some very strange stories indeed, has the following anecdote of a dog, which 'may be pronounced interesting :-Lately a traveller passed in a carriage along the Avenue de Neuilly; the night was dark ; all at once the animal stopped, and the traveller saw that the animal had met an obstacle. At the same moment a man raised himself from before the horse, uttering a cry. Why don't you take care ?" said the traveller. " Ah," cried the man. " you would do better, instead of hallooing, to lend me your lantern." " What for ?" "I had three hundred. fratcs in gold on my person ;my pocket has broken, and all is fallen on the street. It is a commission with which my master has entrusted me. If I. do not find the money I am a ruined man."'' "It is not easy to find the pieces on such a night; have you none left ?" "Yes, I have one." "Give it to me, it is as a means of reco vering the others." The poor man...

Money ivas plentiful at 3j per cent.. A Contemporary says that Brisbane.was lately visited by one of the most severe hail storms which has been felt for some years. Many older residents in the colony talk of a severe storm which happened four years ago, but that of Tuesday was about as heavy as any we have seen in Australia. About four o'clock; in. the aft...

CALAMITOUS EFFECTS OF THE DROUGHT ON THE NORTHERN RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 March 1867
CALAMITOUs EFFECTS OF THE DROUGHT O0 THE NORTHERN RuNs.-The S. A. Register of 5th instant, says :--The accumulating:marss of evidence as to the state of the runs in the Far North must convince all persons that the Government will have to forego some. of the rent which is now due. "There is no getting blood out of a stone." The lessees in nume rous cases ara called upon to pay for grass which has never grpwn; and in some instances they are utterly unable to pay for it. What then should the Government do? Should they. endeavour to exact this. rent and thus cause the dried-up runs to be abandoned, or should they cease to demand payment for pasturage which they have been unable to give, and so induce the holders to persevere tn their occupation of the country? The country now so severely visited is described as being about 170 miles long by 100 miles wide-the country between Port Agusta and M?fount Deception. Here it appears there has been scarcely any rain since January 1864, at which ...
SISTERHOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 March 1867
SIranRHoons.-In our columns of this issie we are favoured with a commli-i cation from Canon Martelli, a Reverend getleman wll known to, and much beloved by every member of our limited community, giving in very modest terms the description of a ceremony, by which a young and interesting lady, the daughter of a family resident in the colony, has solemnly devoted herself by the most sacred vows to deeds of Chris tian Charity without distinction of class or creed. We are pleased to know that such abnegation of self, such sacrifice of allthat is natural and even becoming to the youthful and educated female has Jbeen sanctioned by very high authority, by many who are far from friendly to the more rigid forms of conventual seclu sion, the arguments for and against such sanction being given, are so fully and so ably set forth by a London Journal of great circulation that we place them un reservedly before our readers, that hoping amongst the "unsettlements" of old Sopinions they will be acc...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 March 1867
FLoraI fInteifgoenr . RECEPTION at the Convent of St. Joseph Fre mantle, on the 19 inst., Miss Mary Butler niece to Mr Butler of Victoria Plains, was received into the above Order by the very Revd. M. Griver. The chief object of the Institution is to instruct the children of the poor without dis tinction of creed. A HoAx was attempted to be played on a servant girl in the service of W. P. Clifton Esq. Bunbury. The fellow dressed up as a settler persuaded the girl at first that he was in search of a wife, her instincts however were too keen and she detected the deception, the scamp then assulted her, but a strong will, and still stronger arms defeated his nefarious attempt. The Police soon tracked him up, and he was iden tified by the girl, his name was Delaney. MOONDYNE JOE, as yet there is no clue to his whereabouts, he is here, he is there,, every where and yet no where.

(To the Editor of the Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 March 1867
(To the Edtior of the Herald.) SIn, lucEi hias been said, and a great deal has been written referring to the timber trade of this colony. It cannot be denied that we possess as fine forests, as any in the world. Itis ·all .very well for a man possessed of a certain amount of theory to take up his pen, and commit his ideas to paper; and how is it, I would. ask, that so many failures have occurred amongst men, who have embarked in this trade, while others, who have commenced, and seen- the. Drobable termination of their labors, have prudently made a safe retreat ? The following statements, (which are cor rect) of-the cost price in this colony of timber, and the.accounts received of the nett proceeds, will serve to shew that, the timber trade is a paying speculation on the wrong side. I should advise those who wish to do so, to begin,.andC I have not the least doubt, that: they will be, ere long, very glad to.retire 'froui it . ; " OBSERVER.

As a Plain Man I propose placing before you a few plain facts in a few plain words, a common sense view or rather review of matters which concern not only public but private welfare. I have carefully read over the articles which have recently appeared in the columns of the Inquirer, and Herald, and I note that the appearance of the new Journal, if it has done nothing else, has roused the proprietors of the former from a state of chronic apathy, and forced them to seek assistance amongst their old contributors. They have responded to the call, and the public are much benefited by it. I am a little of a ...
