The men drew wp abreast of Charity Point mid the wharf on the south bank, and both made a formal start and rowed for about 100 yards.

^ Woodburn. (i-nost orrs. coiut£sros\DENT.) July 10. BY the lost trip of the Examiner from Sydney, Messrs. Miller and Meston received their Steam Launch, and upon enquiry, I was informed by the proprietors that her length ÍB 36 feet, beam 7 feet 4 inches, and will run 9 knots the hour, which speaks well for her engine and build. I have no doubt but what her owners will find her of great use during the forthcoming crushing season, in towing their punts to and from the various cane-fields, to the mill. 1 must not forget to mention that Messrs. Miller and Meston were highly pleased with the manner in which the Captain of the Examiner delivered same-everything in good order, nothing in fact Woken or ¡nit out of order. An ^accident happened at Messrs. Miller and Meston's mill the other day. They were having their chimney carried up ten feet higher, aiid tire bricklayer engaged upon the work foll from the top to the bottom inside, and wonderful to relate not a bone was broken.
