Nsws mot Grrra LAn.--On Saturday Mr. Walshe, second officer of the Mounted Police, arrived in town with despatches for his Honor the Superins tendent, from Gipps Land, and brings the following intelligence: -About a Week srnee two hundred of the aborigines, headed by the well known Bungalene, came down upon the border police station: Taskar wadden, the boy interpreter, upon seeing them ap. proach, exclaimed " there'a Bungalene," who. upot coming up, inquired how many persons belonged to the station, to which it was replied, one hundred ; the savage then said that it was all a mistake about his having a white woman at his mic mit, that sha was a woman from the Western Port tribe. Hearing the noise, Mrs. Windredge, the wife of Sergean . Windredge, left her hut and went towards the store, of which she was in charge, and locked it, upon which two blacks caught hold of her arms ands carried her to some distance, but not out of sight o% the huts.

Yaref;ictc. ?o INDOLENCB OF THB HINRDOOS. -There is one great convenience in visiting at an Indian house, viz., every visitor keeps his own establishment of servants, so as to give no trouble to those of the house. The servants provide for themselves in a most curious way. They seem to me to sleep nowhere, and eat nothing-that is to say, in our houses or of our goods. They have mats on thie steps, and live upon sice. But they do very little, and every one has his separate work. I have an ayah (or lady's maid), and a tailor (for the ayahs cannot work); and A- has a boy; also two muddles--one to sweep my room, and another to bring water. There is one man to lay the cloth, another to bring in dinner, another to light tlhe candles, and others to waitat table. Every horse has a man and a maid to him self-the maid cuts grass fur him ; and every dog has a boy. I inquired if the cat had any servants, but I found that she was allowed to wait upon herself ; and, as she seemed the only person ...

TREMENDOUS POTATO DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847

TREMENDOUS POTATO DISCOVER Y.. (From Punch.). We are sad-very sad-when we think of the enormous outlay of public money to fit out and despatch a scientific commission to discover the true causes of the potato evil, for it is now plain the disease is not originally in the tubers, but in the heart of man. From that abode of all wickedness, from that paved court, the human bosom, has issued that blight that has turned the food of millions into corruption. In a word, indirectly, the Pope-like the Dowager Queen, according to the veracious Brougham-the Pope has " done, it all." That mighty print the Dublin Record, gives all the details of the calamity with that succinctness, that dispassionateness, that has made it the organ-the barrel organ-of all Ireland. The thought of the Maynooth Grant germinating in the bosoms of ministers went immediately to the roots of the red Yorks and kidneys :-" Here then was the first, adoption and establishment:of Popery by a *Pro testant parliament; the ple...

THE FISHERIES OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847

THE FISHERIES OF IRELAND. (From the Tablet.) If another Ireland were suddenly to emerge from the sea, as green and lovely a land as that gem of the ocean herself, her people would be abundantly supplied, and all the misery and wretchedness of their present melancholy position would pass away. I There are two means of realising such a vision. 1. To render productive her 4,000,000 acres of im- i proveable soil; and, 2., To draw from the sea the abundant provision there laid up for men. For both these enterprises industry and capital, with peace and security to employ them, are neces sary. But the sea requires the least and yields the most. A deep-sea fishing boat, well found for five men, may be had for 501. In a very successful season one week's fishing will repay the outlay ; and the property gained, if not immediately sold, may be cured and kept at a comparatively small additional expense. The waters on the west coast of Ireland teem with fish. The Dutch and .the Scotch fisher men ...

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1847. THE "GREAT LEADER" OF THE TRANSPORTATION REVIVAL SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847

TITE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1847. TIiHE * GREAT LEADER" OF THE TRANSPORTATION REVIVAL SCHEME. IT is not without considerable "regret'that we find ourselves compelled to render every public question wihich is agitated, a matter of personal investigation. In a community "so peculiarly consti tuted as ours," and in the times in which we happen to live, it is most particularly hazardous to speak plain about individuals, ,without being suspected of some personal feeling, or what is even worse, of sectarian -sentiment of the most hateful-description. 'Notwithstanding all these things, so ad verse to our inclination, the sense of duty prevails. We must make the Transporta tion Revival Scheme, so far as our means aifford, depend for its failure or success, on the exposure of the character of the main person who expects, by his power, as colo aist of New South Wales, to carry tauntingly any proposition that he has made through the Local and :Imperial Legisla .ture.

CAPTAIN STURT'S EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847

CAPTAIN ITURT'S EXPEDITION. (From the South Australian, Feb. 16.) The Gazette and Register have published a long narrative, by Captain Start, of his great and toilsome -expedition into the northern interior. We have already publislhed, on various occasions, from infor mation -derived from Captain Start and others, full -details of the expedition, and on carefully perusing the narrative we can detect no new fact of import ance. The .only .points of Interest are, the gallant captain's speculations as to the extent-of the great creek which he discovered, and which he was not iaile tlioroughly to explore, and as to the results generally of the expedition. These we subjoin. The first extract .relates-to the • ektent and.position of the creek. *" It may appear to many of my readers that this 'creek might.have existed still further-to the eastward -than the point to which I went; -that is to lat. 27 o 56', and long. 142 o., or nearly so. It may •certainly exist beyond -the grassy plains, b...

Naw ZEALAND WoOD.-The increased use of furniture woods, consequent on the favourable posi tion we are now in, as regards the duty and the introduction of many new kinds, affords grounds for hoping that interior decoration may find new means of exercise. The resources of art in this respect have barely been examined; I the British colonies are rich in beautiful woods, applicable for all the purposes for which mahogany and rosewood are adapted. The Tottara wood of New Zealand surpasses any mahogany we have seen; it has great variety of grain, and a beautiful mottled appearance. An elaborate sideboard, lately made of it, for the King of Prussia, by Mr. J. M. Levien, has lately been exhibited at New Zealand House, Broad-street Buildings. We hear, also, that her Majesty.has given orders for some articles. In other pieces of furniture, were specimens of eight kinds of wood, all of them of great beauty, and well adapted fur this purpose. The Maire wood, of which a teapoy has been made, whe...

-o VENICE AND RATLwArs.-Venice, which appeared to be cancelled from the list of commercial empo riums, as well as that of independent States, is again attracting attention with reference to this change. For the last ten years a gradual improvement has taken place in the activity and general condition of this interesting city. Its population has been in creasing, its pauperism diminishing, new buildings and embellishments have succeeded each other, its revenue has doubled. During the last five years the number of ships of the long voyage that entered Venice has increased nearly seventy per cent. ; the coasting trade has steadily augmented; the princi pal harbour, still affording great natural accommo dation, is about to be improved by a magnificent new pier. But itis to the facilities aforded in Venice to travellers, and the transit of goods, we would at present direct attention. The steam navigation of tihe Po connects Venice with Milan, and various fertile provinces of Central Ital...

The defendant had pleaded the general issue, and had also pleaded specially that the note in question was given to Cameron as a consideration for the transfer to the defendant of the license, good will, and fixtures, &c., of the Pyrmont Hotel, but that Cameron had failed to perform his part of the contract, and the plaintiff had taken the note with a full knowledge of its having been thus obtained by Cameron without consideration. Upon the first plea, the plaintiff had taken issue; and to the special plea, he had replied de injuria. Mr. Windeyer appeared for the plaintiff, and Messrs. Foster and Broadhurst for the defendant.
