The northern rivers are auite as well suited for salmon, salmon trout, and other ehoice fish as the Plenty or tho Derwent, and only the exhibition of a little patriotism, perserer anoe, and public spirit is requisite to secure by small and simple means the extension ; of great blessings throughout the colony.

THE LATE GALES. LOSS OF -THE STEAMSHIP CAWARRA. The coast of New South Wales has been visited with awful storms resulting in great disasters not only to shipping, but also in immense loss of life. Never bef orn in the history of the colony has such a succes sion of calamatious disasters taken place, and it is to he hoped will never occur again. The gale has been one of the most severe over known there. Early on Wednesday morning, the 11th inst., the wind began to blow from the S.E., and, as the day wore on, gradually iicreasodtoa gale, accompanied by heavy squalls of rain when night set in the wind increased iu violence, and continued to blow with great fury during the whole of the night, and the rain came down in torrents.

THE DINGO OR NATIVE DOG.— SEE PAGE 10. THE DINGO [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

THE DINGO O B N A T I V E DO G.—Sbh Page 10. THE DINGO, Or native dog, presents in outward appearance a. striking resemblance to the European fox, though in general, rather larger ; while as to character, it has all the fox's canning and cowardice. A bull terrier has been known to nut half-a-dozen dineoes to flieht from the neighborhood of a sheep pen ?which they had at tacked in the night. The dingo is supposed to be de rived from the Javanese wolf, to which also it has some resemblance. It will breed and perpetuate with a common dog. A cross between it and the collie is much sought after by shepherds, as it makes an excel lent sheep dog, retaining only enough of its original nature to destroy poultry or small game. The pure dingo is untnrneable ; its habitat is the dense scrub or mountain* wild; its sleeping place a hollow log; its food, the opossum, kangaroo rat— anything, in fact, in the flesh line. Dingoes are regarded as a great nui sance by the ? stockowner, and are often poi...

BATAVIA AND THE TORRES STRAITS ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

BJlTJlVIA. AND THE TOERES STRAITS BOTJTE. Steeent events havo drawn publio attention to the island of Java and other portions of the Indian Arehipelago. First of all, the Queensland Govern ment has attempted a mall service between Batavin and Brisbane by Torres Struts, and two voyages have now been xnado. Then, there is at present, in Mel bourne, an agent of the Netherlands Steam Naviga tion Company, endeavoring to secure the coopera tion of the Australian Governments to a telegraphic system, uniting the several Australian colonies with the Dutch colonies in our neighborhood, and, through them, with India and Europe. Up till now, Java has been to us a comparatively unknown region, though occupied by Europeans for centuries, and though its history is not without interest and even a spice of romance. The religious persecutions and commercial annoyances which the^IMtcJi suffered o£ the hands of Philipw^Spain daring the Jitter half en the sixteenth century, Ifed them to seek ttri outlet...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

THE MONTH The R.M.S. Bombay, with the European May mail, arrived in Hobson's Bay on the morning of Thursday, _ the 12th inst. Never before did the news create so much excitement. The intelligence last month prepared ns for stirring events. We had . heard of the monetary panio, and «f the threatening attitude ef continental affairs. Bat a month does wonders in the work of pacification. So often does the detailed news fail to confirm the late telegrams that there was room for hoping that things were not so bad as they seemed ; but this month's news has folly confirmed the fears raised by that of -last. - -, . ? -.?'??- ?- :- ?-??-?? ? .

CHAMPION PLOUGHING MATCH OF THE PORT PHILLIP FARMERS' SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

CHAMPION PLOUGHING MATCH OF THE PORT PHILLIP 'FARMERS'' SOCIETY. This event, which has been looked for with interest by the farming world, came off on the 5th inst, in the Royal-park, about three miles from Mel bourne, on an open piece of land sloping gently to the north. For the purpose of a ploughing match, a better site could not possibly have been chosen ; the turf was a virgin one, and the soil a nice friable loam, in beautiful condition for ploughing. Although the upper portion*' of the land (on which were the men who had never won an advertised prize, as well as the boys and four of tho champions) was somewhat drier than tho lower half, on whioh the rest of the champions were placed, the difference in the quality of the ground was not so great as to militate against the success of those who were located on. the hill, for the first and second champion prizes went to that portion of the field. For the champion class, which was open to all comers, but which was filled, as intend...

A BITER BITTEN. How the would-be biter was bitten the other day may be gathered from the following narrative— : which we take from the Talbot Leader— of a, neat: little dodge attempted to be played in that town last ' week :— ' A ahareholdor in one of onr pttblio com- ' panies, not remarkable for dividend-paying qualities, wrote from Melbourne to an acquaintance in Talbot, stating that be was negotiating the sale of his intoreBt f or £60, and that the intending buyer only required the acoonnt of the affairs of the company: he (the vendor) had given him, authenticated by a respectable person in Talbot to complete the transac tion. , Mr So-and-so was therefore asked to supply what was needed, and ia return his correspondent would gratefully make him a present of £10 out of the £60. But, like most amateurs in swindling, the ' shareholder overreached himself., First of ol ho exposed himself to the risk of reprisals by inserting in his letter the name and address of the intending buyer, ...

MURDER BY THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

MURDER BY THE BLACKS. A late number of the Macleay Mercury (N.S.W.) has been favored with the particulars of a murder recently committed by the natives, and attended by circumstances whioh somewhat redeem it from the monotonous oharaoter of such atrocities. The pro prietor of Eaglefiald station reoently formed an out-station lame forty miles from Eaglefield, on a creek called Rookingham Creek, the boundary of E»glefitld near the Ltiohhardt range. At this out statitn a lambing down flock was placed in charge of three or four men wall armed ; one of whom, while in the yard one morning, foolishly fired his revolver in bravado over the heads of some blacks. The sheep were naturally divided during - the day, and one man with a dropping flook was for two days carefully followed by the blaoks at a distance, the latter, on the second night, keeping about the yard, as waa judged by the furious bark ing of the dogs. The man in charge of the dropping flook was porfaotly cognisant that he was u...

THE REV. ANDREW ROBERTSON. ? The Rev. Andrew Robertson, minister of the West Melbourne Presbyterian church is a native of Scotland.

In June, 1865, a call waa presented . to him. from West Melbourne, to act as pastor to the newly established congregation in that part of the city,; which call he accepted. Under his able , and popular ministration, this new congregation has been most thoroughly and effloiently organised ; arid, looking at the ' success which has attended it so far, promises to be one of the leading congregations in the city.' The temporary, building, which was erected to accomodate about 600, has already been found inadequate to supply the demand for sittings so that it has become necessary to commence the erection'of the, permanent ohuroli much sooner than was anticipated. The architectural beauties of the new church are such as will do honor to the noble and comm...

Is compiling this, we have no doubt, Mr' Hull had only one object in view — to furnish the public with information as to the true financial state of the1 co lony, but his statement also furnishes the best possible refutation of the slanders published by scurrilous scribblers in the Opposition journals, with the deter mination, at any cost to the country, to damage the present Ministry, and lower them in public estima tion. With no higher object in view than this, these moat inveterate enemies of the colony persistently re presented that it was on the verge of ' repudiation ; ' that its debentures...
