Stock and Station Report. I DAWSON AND OO.l PAT CATTLE.-Bather unexpectedly, to-day, the market showed someweakness, but this was only temporary; thereis we think every prospect of the market being sustained. "We have sold several lots during the week at full prices, and do not alter last week's quotations. As usual when the metropolitan market promises well, the large butchers and dealers are buying all they can outside. "We hopo in the interests of tho BiiuattO's generally, that when tho central salo yards aro established, the system of selling stock outside will be abolished to a great extent. It cannot be doubted that it operates mischievously on the sale of fut stock. KAT SHEEP.-Tho market is barely supplied with really primo fat sheep, but badly conditioned stock are plentiful, and the buyers view witli suspicion all sheep that are offered, ns they think they must have suffered because of having hud to travel during the recent inclement weather.

More New Zealand Massacres. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870
More New Zealand Massacres. AGAIN we have disastrous intelligence from New Zealand, and the tale of butchery is enough to chill, the blood with horror. It appears that Te Kooti, having been, as is sup posed, joined by the Hauhau chiefs Hakariah and Kereopa, had been watching the proceed ings of Major Kemp, who, with his force of friendly natives, was in search of the rebels. Waiting until Kemp and his men were well away, and there were none but women and children and old men left in the pahs at Opape, Te Kooti pounced down upon them and took about a hundred and fifty prisoners. It is said that some of the men were out fishing, and were eye witnesses of the attack upon the pahs, and the capture of the women and ohildren. It is further stated that about thirty were slaughtered at once, but it seems to be very difficult to procure correct informa tion. Whether it is that the authorities are ashamed of themselves for allowing the arch murderer to slip through their fingers so often, or ...

LITERATURE. Faith and Science. MAN IN GENESIS AND GEOLOGY ; OR, THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNTS OF MAN'S CREATION TESTED BY SCIEN TIFIC THEORIES OF HIS ORIGIN AND ANTIQUITY. BY tho Hov. JOSEPH P. THOMPSON, D.D., LL.D. 12 mo., pp. 140. IT is a misfortune that the two camps into which the intellectual world is now divided-those of science and religion-understand so little of ono another. Even tho weapons of one sido aro almost unknown to tho othor. Such is tho defectivo training in the theological schools that that great implement with which the army of science has won almost all its grand victories in modern progress-tho process of scientific reasoning is an instrument with which the young theologians are almost utterly unacquainted-the cumulative process of reasoning, by which one little fact is piled upon another, until at length, after weary labour, a broad generalization can be erected, which shall be a guide to all future investigation ; the delicate and conscientious balancing of probabi...

George Rosk ling said-Last night after I returned from chapel I was in the kitchen at Gason's Labour Office, in Hindley-street. I thero saw William Wallace Legge and his wife, the deceased. They were quarrelling. He asked her to go to bed, and she said, "No ; not with a devil like you ; I hate you, you low-looking devil." Legge then went into a back room. I was sitting reading the paper where Mrs. Legge was. Heard a noise in tho back room like knives or spoons rattling. Legge came out from the back room with his hand under the bosom of his shirt. He asked her again if she would go to bed and make it up with him. She said, " I'll see you in-first." He took hor then by tho hair of her head and dragged her from the form on which she was sitting.

Gold-mining Companies. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870
j Gold-mining Companies. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] I THINK it will be acknowledged eventually, that ono of the groat mistakes committed by tho founders (bona fide) of most companies formed for the purpose of gold-mining in this colony is this-that tho amount fixed as the nominal capital ÍB generally far in excess of tho sum (with interest) likely to be returned to the shareholders by the time the olaims are worked out. Take as an example a company (in the success of which, as a contributing shareholder, I am interested) with a nominal capital of £36,000, repre sented by a lease of certain ground for fifteen years, for which tho promoters and original proprietors rotain 24,000 shares, considered each as £ 1 paid up, and 12,000 shares, allotted to tho contributors or share holders finding the money capitol.

THE NATURALIST. Animals known to the Ancients (From the Paris Correspondent of Land and Water.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870
THE NATURALIST. Animals known to the Ancients (From the Farts Correspondent of Land and Water.) SOME timo ago a gentleman of the namo of Lenor mant presented a paper to the Paris Academy of Sciences, in which he attempted to show that until the 18th dynasty, or 14th century before the Christian era, no figures of horses were visible on the monu ments of ancient Egypt, and from this he concluded that previously that animal was, unknown to the inhabitants of Northern Africa. Last week M. Faye took up the question again, and stated that, on his late return from Cairo, he had read the books of Genesis and Exodus once more, in order to compare what he had seen with the Mosaic descriptions, and had hit upon the following verso :-" And these are the children of Zibeon : both Ajah and Anah : this was that Anah that found the mulos in the wilder ness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon, his father." (Gen. xxxvi. 24.) M. Faye then remarked, that Anah was a contemporary of Abraham, who lived long b...
