ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. OUR VOLUNTEERS. [To the Editor of the CHRO~ICLE.] SIR,-Reading over the Parliamentary Debate of last Thursday night, I find the indomitable McLellan calling the Volunteer Staff officers mamby-pamby individuals. So far I shall not offer an opinion; but there is an officer in this town (who, no doubt, is pires to be placed on the Staff) who practices mamby-painby-ism too much. In the be gining of January a certain candidate was proposed to'beconie a member of the W. A. force, Capt. Stewart saying he would be con sidered a member if nothing was urged against him by the next Friday night; umn fortunately before lie was sworn un Captain Stewart went away; and after he had put in 16 drills, and passed ready for being sworn in; he was rejected (by our commander temporary only) on the ground of not being tall enough, when the question of height is not named in the Volunteer Act; also there are several oflicers and men no taller at pre sent in the Company.

A COURAGEOUS WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 March 1867
A CourwAo?ns WOMAN.- The eass Courier has an account of the capture by a woman of the prisoner who escaped from the lock.upsat Picton. The woman in question was the, wife of the lock-up-keeper, who, finding that her husband and another constable had gone away in pursuit of the absconder without their firearms, took a revolver and followed, with the intention of giving it to her husband. On her way she fell in with the escaped prisoner, whom she challenged to stand, but on seeing her he made off as fast as he could. As she was unable to keep up with him, she fired off one of the barrels of the revolver, the ball wounding him in the thigh. The race was at once concluded, and tha woman, coming up to the pursued, ordered him to return to the lock-up. At first he showed a disinclination to obey, but a blow from the butt-end of the revolver made him change his mind, and she succeeded in marching him back to the watchhouse. The wound has been found sufficiently serious to require the man's...

Original Sketches. HOW I SPENT MY, FIRST NIGHT IN VICTORIA. BY IRONPEN. We had been ninety days at sea, and the only land we had sighted since we parted from the Lizard was the small island of St. Paul's in the Indian Ocean. We had a rough passage from the Cape. Our crea- &nbsp; ture-comforts were getting "smaller by de grees and beautifully less," as if for the pur- pose of preparing us for the rough life to .which we were soon to be introduced. But whatever our fate might be in the land of gold, or no gold,—whatever hardships were in store for us, we were plrpaired for them. ' Most of us in that ship were young and strong, and 'were determined'to- fight man fully at every point the Battle of Life. Our captain had told us the previous night that we should see land the next morning, and with the continuance of a fair wind he would probably bring the vessel to anchor in two or three days. At the .next rising of the sun I was among the first on' deck straining "my eyes in atte...
