literature. AN ESSAY ON POETBL , :' BY JOHN TAYLOR. Delivered at the Meeting of the Kiama Literary and Debating Society,. Meld at Kiama on the \Gtli ultimo. 'We take too limited a view of Poetry and its influences. The English hiugu ige possesses the largest poetic literature tho world ever saw. Not only ia it abundant in the common definition of it, but it pervades and | vitalises every species of our literature. The exercise of tho imagination is commonly thought to contribute;. to amusement, where, is in fact it is the highest faculty man possesses ; it forms connection with higher intelligences and is the faculty susceptable of inspiration. Its . otiico is the same in both poets and discoverers. .When they ' body forth the form of tilings unknown,' and 'give a local habitation and a name,' to what our race, know nothing of ; in fact the poet and discoverer are Isosceles, and can with facility cliango places.

The Mines. THE ROCKY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 13 October 1856

A correspondent of the Maitland Jtfercury writes as follows: — I liavo just returned from a visit of five days to the Kooky, and subjoin tho following hasty sketch of matters in that quarter, which you aro at liberty to use ua you may think proper. The conflicting reports respecting the Rocky have no doubt deterred many parties from going tiiere, and hundreds have turned back in consequence of the state ments of disappointed returners, who, generally, are pretty loud in their denunciation of the Rocky: and some even declare that it is all humbug ; that the Rocky novor was, nor never will be, a gold field ; and that the glowing accounts in the newspapers are only an attempt ot the storekeepers to get up a rush. Thero are others who have been successful, who think the Rocky is till gold and put into circulation all kinds of exaggerated reports, which frequently tend to throw a distrust on tho state ments of those who have no disposition to deceive the public...

Agriculture. SURPLUS AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 13 October 1856

Slgriniltra. SURPLUS AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE ( From the Adelaide Times.) The wheat crop of 1 85 f-5, according to the government returns, amounted to 90,000 acres. But this was nearly ono-third in excess of the crop of 185-J-4, viz., (i -1,0 00 acres. We shall not be deomed guilty of exaggeration, therefore, in estimating last years crop, that is, the crop for 1855-G, at 120,000 acres, of one-third in excess of the acreage oi the previous year, the breadth of land then brought under crop for the first time being so greatly in advance ot that of any former year. But assuming the acreage of wheat for 1855-6 at 120,000 acres, tho next thing to ho determined is tho number of bushels per acre. 12,000 acres at 16 bushels per aero would yeild 1, 020, 000 bushels as the gross return ol wheat in bushels for tho year. Aovi taking tho population at 00,000 souls, and allow ing fi-i bushels of wheat per annum to each, we should require fi00,000 bushels for own consumption. Again, taking the present...
