MISCELLANEOUS. A~vETUE wITre A SnnR.--Almost every one who has seen much of salt water has some anecdote or other to tell about a shark; but the adventures that befel the gunner of the Fawn was more than usually strange. Bleinsg a very expert diver, he had been employed to recover the treasures of the Peninsular and Oriental Company's steamship Ceylon. l{aving in a gutta perehk dress, made his way inuto the saloou, he way busy searching for thle bullion, when, to hIis horror, he saw a hugeo gromund shark come sailing in ait the door. 'With great presence of mind he lay motionless on the locker, and watched it silently and grimly cruising about. One can well Imagine hIis fcelings when he saw its cold green eyes fixed upon him, and felt itpush ing agasnst the leaden soles of his boots, and rubbing against his dress, the slightest puncture in which would have been certain destruction. After ten minutes of suspense, which must Ihave seemed an age, during which time the monster came back...

He attemptedtwo or three times to commlnit suicide, and onceb, :having .succee0ded in secreting a piece of glass in his bodthecut a vein in his arm, and was quietly bleeding to death', when it was discovered in time. The only persons allowcd to witness the execution were the troops in garrison, the sentenco having been previously read to the prisoner who in a brief speech exhsorted his comrades to keep from drink, which he said hbad brought him to such a miserable end. There was great difficulty in obtaining a hangman, as the Greeks would have murdered any one of their own people if they had known him to perform tlhe part of executioner. nA man accordingly was brought over secretly from Albanio, and wore a mask all the time ihe was in Corfu.

THE DARLING FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 14 July 1864

THE DARLING FLOODS. (From the liverine Herald.) The following extract from a letter from Mr. B. Walters, who, in company with Mr. Fisher, left Echuca some weeks since for the Warrogo country, has born handed to us for publication. It will serve to give our reaoers some idea of the extent of the floods in the Darling. Mr. VWalters, writing from Fort Burke, says:i-" We ar rived on the Tintinallagy Run on the 13th April, and camped in a bend of the river about six miles below the home station. The river had not risen much at that tfiro, but during thenighit we were awakencnal, y the water pouring into our tent, and to bur surprise we found ourselves on an islhifd.. We shifted our fire severaltimes, the water continually rising and putting it out. As it was very dark we thought it best to wait till daylighf t; and it was fortunate we did so, for if we had attempted to move we should ass'uredly have boeen drowned. In the morning we found the water romund us so deep as to be swimnable for...

TIHlE NEW SUPERSTITION. (From the WcTanganuni COhronicle.) The following account of the origin and nature of the native religious delusion, which has been the cause of the late alarmn will doubtless interest our readers. On the occasion of the fight at Ahaulha; Captain Lloyd's blood was drunk by t~ho natives that killed him, and after havingr finished their orgics, they cut off his ]headI and biuriedit.

HOW THEY PASS BAD MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 14 July 1864

SHOW THEY PASS BAD MONEY. The niethods of passing base coin are very .ingenious. .The straightforward "pitohor" is the most daring. Ho peits the base coin upon the shop counter, and talkes his chance of detection. Should tho ,shopman attempt to 'test his money, he will stop him if possible. He will ask the shopkeeper whether hle means to in sult him, snatch the half-crown out of his hand, and threaten nlever to enter the shop again. The thief will sometimes pretend to stand upon his honour, and come back into the shop and insist upon having his half-crown tested. But he has substituted a good half-crown for the original bad coin, and so comes off with flying colours. The thief will now malke a purchase, and again chl:nging the coin, hle after all succeeds in passing his bad half-crown. Twilight is the best time for passing bad mnoney; and mnore coun terfeits are passed at this time of day than at any other. The thieves always go two together for this work. One carries the coin but n...

H. PARKES, ESQ., ON THE PERMISSIVE LIQUOR LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 14 July 1864

H. PARKES, ESQ., ON TIHE E1ITcoS SIVE LIQUOR LAW. :At a public: meeting held lately in Sydney, to further the objects of the Permissive Liquor Law Convention, II. Parkes, Esq., MI.L.A.' proposed the se cond resolution as follows:-" That this niceting pledgds itself to support the ob ject of the Permissive Liquor Law Con vention; namely, to obtain, by legal enactmdnt, power conferring upon the electors:of' eaoch elcctrate, the privilego of controlling the licensiing system by a majority :of votes." After discussing many statistical facts, in connection with the consumption of intoxicating liquors, and alluding to the district of I(iama, the soborese district in New South Wales, whose town of Kiama had only three public-houses and five churches, .Ir. Parkes went on to say that this was a great political question, involving a new scheme of taxation, a question that their statesmen must take up. The success of tho temperance movement would lead to tlhe introduction of a healthy financia...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 14 July 1864

TIIE uses of adversity have formend the theme of many a moral and many a reli gious discourse. The Americans of the Southern States are becoming, it is said, wiser, though not less pertinacious, under the pressure of the calamities which come in the train of war; and if the agricultu rists of this colony do not also learn some amount of wisdom from the effects pro dlucedby thc"unseasonablerain andwater" which have poured withl such destructive abundance from the open windows of Iheaven, it must be, we think, because thoir predilection for establisheld usages amounts to absolute infatuation. Tihe reiterated ill-luck which has attended farming operations for some years past (the number varies in different parts of tihe colony), ought surely to produce an effect, analagous to that of the tenth plague on the obstinacy of PnIIAno., or in familiar language, like that which the last ounce produces on the camel's back. The patient, but stolid character of this animal, is no bad emblem of tl...

A force of 400 infantry and cavalry, with one six-pounder gun, started this morning, at eight o'clock, under Colonel Greer, for the purpose of dislodging them; and nobly have they effocted their object. The rebels were the first to assume tihe offensive-their out-sentries firing upon the colmnn as it advanced along the level plain. Skirmishers were thrown out, and the six-pounder placed in position on a slight eminence, about 500 yards from the rifle pits. Thce skirmishers and rebels in the pit exchanged shots for somn...
