I NATIVES FISHING ON THE DARLING. AMONGST the aboriginal tribes located alone thc Murray, Mur- rumbidgee, and Darling, fish forms their chief article of food, and in obtaining it they display-great ingenuity and dexterity.

TASMANIA. The Supreme Court has granted a perpetual injunction re- straining Mr. White and others from interfering with the Rev. Mr. Stone's church.

Even amongst ¿ur own colonists, ithose who have never left the town or village §which they reside, are apt to form their opinions upon e subject from the dashing equipage which some squatter drives oh his periodical tour ibo or ïrom ^is station ; . to siich, squatting life is all couleur de. ro.^; ; They fprgöt that ' aU that glitters, is not gold.'
