For tho last week, wo have been tantalised by observing large volumes of rain clouds passing over us, and with something liko an approach to a thunderstorm ; but, alas I only to dis appear to visit some more favored spot. On Sunday afternoon, it blew almost a hurricane, and tho rain came down for about an hour. Since then, we have had nothing but scorching hot weather, and high winds during the night. The thermometer, last week, averaged 104 in the shade ; so I leave you to guess what it was outside. . . . Horses are * in a most miserable condi...

OPOSSUM SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1866
OPOSSUM SHOOTING. The opossums, of whiob there are. various species, are nocturnal animalb, nearly ths size of a cat,, who nestle ia trees, and live on birds and in sects,. &a. ? Thsir greatast peculiarity is their pre mature produatioa of their youug, which are born in ?a state of development scarcely comparable to that of an, ordinary fcetns a few days after conception. Incapable of motion, barely exhibiting the rudiments of limbs or other external organs ; rarely more than a few grains in weight at birth; these minute specimens of vitality attach ' themselves ' to the teats of their mothers, and remain 'fixed there -until ? they have acquired a degree of development an alogous to that in which other aniinals are born. Amongst tho marsupial of Australia perhaps the. ppossums are the moit singular. , They are chiefly sought after on account of their beautiful furs, oat of wliich are manufactured those opo3sum rugs which are in such repute, and so extensively used by the goi...

.COLONIAL PRODUCTS. CURED HAMS, MESS BEEP AND BACON, &C. The increasing demand which has arisen of late years for cured provisions has stimulated the establishment of meat-curing manufactories, of which there are several -within the metropolis and suburbs, and throughout tho colony. In the statistics of ' the colony for 1864, there are only two meat curiug establishments reported as in operation- — one in -the - cpuiity of Bourke and one in the' county of .''-'Grant.' We have -a record of the difficulties that ?' h'eset the ' career of ' one of these, 'in obtaining ' a ' sufficient supply of tlie raw mate rial and from? want of /encouragements The prejudice that a year or two ago existed against colonial produc tions, aiid'which, to some extent, still exists, retarded the extension of ['this i branch i of industry, and cramped its development tbsuch a degree that the businoss of tlie establishment to whicK we.^refer dwindled down' so perceptibly that it was found unremuhera ...

There were five prizes offered, the first a piece of plate, value £20; the second, £15; tho' third, £8; the. fourth, £5 ; the fifth, £2. There were 2G entries, the ranges being 30t), 600, and 900 yards, 15 shots each. The wind was fitful, and blew from the left across the range. The attendance was very scanty. Of the- 'Victorian competitors, Messrs Watson, and Walker did not put in an appearance; Captain Paterson and Lieutenant Scoular, of South Australia, and Mr Mumby, of N. S. Wales, were absent ; and Colonel Anderson, after firing at tho 600 yards range, 'withdrew from tho contest. The following is the result : — : '.'';' THUE3E HUNDKEDYARD^.

INTERCOLONIAL RIFLE MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1866
; INTERCOLONIAL EIFLE MATCH. ?The fifth Intercolonial , Rifle Match was brought to n oIosp at six p. in., on Saturday 8tlx inst., New South Wales obtaining a victory by the vory largo number of ninety points. To adil to the. chagrin which such a result has created, this ia the second sueoessivo match which New South Wales has won, and their chances of securing possession of the shield are proportionately increased from the fact of the next match having to bo shot oh .their -own ground. In the selection of the representatives of this colony, it is questioned ' whether the best 'ten have been chosen. The oom'plaiht urged by the Victorians for thoir want of success at the last match shot at Sydney was that many of our. best : men could not sjjai-o lime ironi their business to go to Sydney, and their team was- consequently weaker than would have been the case' had' the shooting taken place at Sand ridge. , This year the complaint .is. that several of our' best riflemen have declined to ...
