* - il itflitill ig cll&e. As is usually the case at the present season of the ycar,.the mining'intelligence of the co lony-has assured a dull and-quiet tone; the diggers and others connected with the mining interest having generadly ;complied with- the wanted-practice of John Bull and his friends, by making Christmas-tinme-the holiday of the year. At Yandoit, a district now nearly, de serted by gold-seekers, a small pnrty of miners h.avettaken a nugget weighing S3oz. from an bld claim in New Nuggetty Gully, which had been for. some time deserted by-the former . miners. This has doubtless furnished funds and been a sufficient stimulus to incite further activity in the place, and several parcels of quartz taken from' the Itambuirgh and Gh. morganshire.lReefs have averaged 4oz, to the ton of gold.

-A CAPTIVITY W "TIIH GREEK BRIGANDS Mr Soteropoulos, late Minister of Finance at Athens, has written the following accouit of his detention by Greek brigands. The candid simplicity with which it reveals the moral feelings of the writer and the political views of. the brigands renders all comment superfluous. Itisadated October 25,1866: Since Greece became independent I-am the first person in this or the neighbouring depart ments Who has been carried off by brigands. I hope lI may be the last. I was taken sitting at the door of my country house, and detained captive thirty-six days. During this time I passed the nights in the open air with no other covering, than a woollen cloak to protect. me fiont the cold and rain ; and I re mained frequently, all day in irrigated fields of maize, exposed to the fierce rays of the sun, deprived of necessary nourihmnient, and often of water to allay my thirst. was not released until the - brigunds received 60,000 drachmas in gold as my ransom and a...

OUR COMMONS. (To the Editor of the CHRONICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 March 1867

OUR COMMONS. (To the Editor of the CRsuNICLE.) Stu,--With your permission, I propose to discuss in your columns, a subje-t I hold to be of considerable importance to this borough; 'viz. :-The.management of our commons as they are called, which really means the regu lation of the cattle owned by the Burgesses. There is a large area of grass land in our limits, which can be utilise l and made to be a par tial support to many a poor family. There has for some time been an intermittent cow government, now going into long periods of trance and bybernation, and at last showing signs of vitality by the elections of new mana gers who ride wildly about, round up every calf, cow and bullock, and carrying a tar pot at the saddle bow proceeding to anoint them, therewith demanding fees or threatening the pound, with all the long array of fees, trespass, poundage and sustenance. So much done, exhaustion follows; the trance comes on, the cattle roam unchecked, trample and waste the grass, knock do...

Dallaway withdrew his m6tion with reference to the land for gar dens near the Geelong read. The discussion elicited the fact, that we have no gardens at alL When the Govern ment was asked to give a piece of ground for future use, the answer was-' we have already given you a large piece;' now it is affirmed that it is only lent, while we don't want it, to take away when we do want it. A Footscray job after all ! is transmigration true ? Has the death of Handy Andy installed himself in our Council Chambers 1 If so, we hope that our worthy Mayor will study the incantations by which he can be driven out. Government greed is hard up, is selling for a pottage every inch of ground.

A dissipated looking woman named Rhoda Carter, was chaged with improper 'conduct, -" and ordered to leave the locality. Thos.

An application for a transfer of the license of the Stanley Arms Hotel from P. P. Meagher to Mr Ryan was granted. William Fitzgerald, a dairyman, sum moned W.
