Combo, one of the Dungog tribe of aboriginals, was £rr?wned 0Q Wednesday last in attempting to swim the Wilhams ßiver. He had undertaken to hand a letter to parties in tho vicinity of Mr. Tunks's farm, who wero in charge of a mob of Now England cattle, destined for Maitland. Combo, with his shirt enclosing the letter fastened upon his head, made his start from a point near Mr. Walker's slaughter-house. He had successfully crossed tho main current, when tho shirt fell into the water. He instantly recovered it, but afterwards seemed, by his actions, to have no mastery over himself ; and, after being borne along till ho was between tho mill and tho opposito bank, ho shouted out something that could not be heard, and finally sank.-Maitland Mercury.

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. No. ll.—THE ASH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. No. ll.-THE ASH. THERE are sevoral varieties of this tree, of which the common, ash is tho most useful, and perhaps tho most generally distributed. It is found all over the Conti nent of Europe, as far as GO dogreis of latitude, and it prevails in tho north of Asia in tho same parallels. Tho common ash, with, perhaps, tu o or thrco less im portant varioties, are natives of Great Britain, and are considorod tho most beautiful tree thoro whon in full leaf and flower. On this account, combined with tho 'oxcellcnco of its timber, it has always attracted tho regard of mankind in a very marked manner. As readers of tho classics know, thc old poets have sung tho ash (Frascinus), perhaps, to a greater extent than any other forest tree. Amongst the ignorant, in all a^cs, tlic tree seems to havo boen regarded with feel ings of superstitious veneration. Tho simple ancients, whoso wants wero few, wore accustomed to accord a species of sub-worship ...

Cross-Cutting Heavy Logs by Horse Power. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

APPLIANCE ron CIIOSS-CUTTING LOOS. Cross-Cutting Heavy Logs by Horse Power. IN clearing heavily timbered land the greatest diffi culty tho settlor has to contend with is the cross cutting of large trees after falling, to prepare them either for splitting, for burning off, or for removal to mähe temporary fonces. Any appliance that would tond to reduce tho great labour and cost attendant on thoso operations must bo a boon to all who are ongaged in clearing. Ono of the cheapest and most effective labour saving implements ever invented is tho wood-sawing machino, tho operation of which is shown in tho ac companying diagram. The illustration will furnish a fair idea of how the horse-power is applied. It is a "sweep" power, and may be operated either by one horse, or two horses abreast, which aro amply sufficient to drive tho saw. The machine is a paragon of wonderful ingenuity, and yet it is so plain that a good mechanic will at once express sur prise that the devico has not been though...

Neither has the Banco Court been required to adjudicate upon many cases of importance. ,. On Friday last their Honors decided upon the validity of points raised in tho favour of tho prisoner Can*, who was charged with personating at a.recent election.
