No less than four buildings are on thie coo of comoplotion, and tivo or three isoro in the ciurso of ereclion. Whets oll Iso buildings ar0 linished, Nimiitybello msy properly uluim the appli ousidon o" lown." Although Nimisybello is ani old establilshed place its inllubittusst cre loft ins s most piticble state for the wunt of police protoution, while other places, of far less consequence, have a standing police. On last Sunday, two of the Nimnitybollo rowdies turned out to fight in the contre of the town. About forty persons were soon on the spot to wit ness the fight, including women and children. Is it not really a disgraco tlhat such scenesr should take place amongst a civilized community? It is high time something should be done to alter the condition of thingo quickly.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 26 September 1860
LNWLISH EXTRACTS. SAILORS AND THEIR WIvEs.-In the old service, women-usually wives of petty officers and of' leading seamen'-were allowed to be on board King George's ships, tind heroically did these daughters of Britannia generally behave. At the battle of the Nile, women as as well as boys served as ' powder-monkeys.' Some were wounded, andl one died of heor wounds, and was buried on an island in the bay. She was a Leith woman. Another, an Edinburgh woman, 'bore a son in the heat of' thle action!' So says old John Nicel, mariner, in his autobiography, published many years ago. In Rodney 's victory, a woman fought at a gun on the main-deck, anti informed the admiral that she did so simply to supply the place of her husband, who was carried below, wounded. Rodney told her she had no business to do so, but he presented her with ten guineas. In 1812, the Swallow man-of-war had a desperate encounter with two enemy's ships of very superior force, off Frejus, and lost many men. A seaman,...

SYDNEY. Saturday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 26 September 1860
SYDNEY. [~aROMn OUR OWN conlesroNDneN.] Saturday afternoon. TIHE NOW Zealand intelligence by the mail steamer, Lord Ashley, seems to show that the system of military tactics introduced by Colonel Gold, is likely to be a model for the whole campaign. I have seen a letter from a gentleman in a position of military trust and responsibility, which asserts that the whole military management is a complete muddle, and dis creditable alike to the British arms and to the officers concerned. One party, numbering several hundreds, went out to attach the Manries, but met with a shower of rain and returnedl Another, a thousand strong, made a night expedition, but re turned without meeting the enemy. Indeed, there is good reason to believe that the general was informed beforehand of the departure of the natives from that place. The third expedition is very well represented in a letter to the ' Sydney Morning Horald,' which runs as follows: "On Monday last a strong force of military, blue jakoets,...
To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 3 October 1860
To the Editor of the Herald. "SrPcscu is silvern: silence is golden." The apo thegoa is Thomas C.rlylo's, and its sententious brevity, laconic pith, and rythmic beauty, are a clear proof of that practical good sense, and ability to write plain, powerful anod popular English, which underlies all his unfortunate Germanism of thought and style. Weighty as gold and sonorous as silver, it has the goenuine ring of the sterling minted metals he has chosen for his metaphors. What an apt motto does the phrase form for acolonial parliamentl Not only ought it to be graven over the portals of the senate house in Macqoarie-street, but blazoned in illuminated letters over the Speaker's chair, and thundered forth in startling tones, at brief intervals, by the sergeant or usher, for the warning of tihe tedious driveller and his dozing victims, like the monition that rang in the ears of the old Persian king, by banquet-board and bed-side, and stimulated his vengeance against the devoted Athenians.

COCKATOO ISLAND. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 3 October 1860
COCKATOO ISLAND. [cssoscalavrin.) A brief.sketch of this now ,celebrated penal settlement, which for more than twenty years has occupied so prominent a position in our colonial history, may not be without 0some interest. Cockatoo Island is more than a mile in circumference, of a somewhat oblong shape and uneven surface, with rocky .pro jections, and distant from Sydney about four miles, on the Parramatta river, facing the main land of Balmain, from which it is separated one mile. At present its convict population amounts to about 250, of which number 58 are undergoing servitude under the old act, or that which recognised a commutation of sentence on account of good behaviour or acts of merit, and by .whiclhregime the convict could shorten the time of his sentence to little miore than one-half; the remaining 192 prisoners have been convicted since the abo lition of the commutation system, and conse quently are liable to penal servitude for the full term of their respective sentences....

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 3 October 1860
TuH Governor's speech has, as usual, proved a fertile theme for remark in Parlia ment, as well as "out ofdoors" Mr. Darvall denounced its omission of all reference to a host of topics which demand the attention of t?he legislature; Mr. Hoskins, eschewing the unparliamentary term " bosh," which had been applied to the Chinese' debate, and selecting what he dorsbtless considered a far more fitting and elegant phrase, characterized it as a "concoction of nonsense and absurdi ties;" and Mr. Deniehy, describing it as a " cloud of verbiage," intimated his conviction that it must have been "the work of a penny a-liner." Neither of the three speakers, how ever, ventured upon any formal analysis of the address which they thus unhesitatingly and unceremoniously condemned. Like the titles of works prefixed by a reviewer to his article, the speech seems to have been selected rather as a text for their own homilies de omnibus relbu et quibusdam aliis, than as the object of special criticism, and...

LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL.

SYDNEY. Friday afternoon. POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 3 October 1860
SYDNEY. [roox oUR ows CORrESPO?DE.IT.] Friday afternoon. POLITICAL. M[r. Robertson has introduced his land bills, and they have been read a first time-the second reading stanling for Thursday next. This promptitude will be satisfactory to all parties who are simeere in their desire for land reform, and ought to bea sufficient answer to all who doubt the sincerity of the govern ment. The bills are dennded of the objectionable details which they contained on the occasion of their last presentation to Parliament They provide for free selection, and remove certain difficulties in the way of it, which disfigured the bills on their first pro. duction. I have not the slightest doubt that the gorernment will press on the second reading next Thursday, though in all probability a debate (aco ther land debate!) will arise on the question, and, will occupy several days. It is doubtful to me whe ther this bill will not be allowed to go into commit* tee, though in all probability the tinkering pr...
MORUYA. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 3 October 1860
MOtRUY A. (From our own Correspondent.) NEW ROADS.-The administration has at length recognized the importance of the traffic between Araluen and the coast, vid the valley of the Moruyu. Money has been granted for the construction of two branch roads, uniting at Larry's; the one from Mullendereo, traversing the Mi?uckendora ranges; the other from Iiora, running along the bank of the river. Government having, in this instance, en trusted the entire control of the work to a committee of the residents on the respective routes, instead of to the local benches,wo may hope to see the work completed speedily and in a workman-like and elficient manner. What would have been the result had the work been confided to the superintendence of the bench will be evident to anry person from an i.aspection of the Bateman's Bay road. The person employed to repair that road, under the supervision of the bench, has excavated from the side of the road soft yellow clay, which he has liberally spread over th...
