WHAT CAN RE DONE WITH AUS TRALIAN WOODS. Jtia ealiefactory to know that our beautiful indigenous timber is fust coming into favour for Cabinet work. We had tho pleasttro yes terday of inspecting, at Mr Ebenstou's, Queen-street, a drawing and dining-room suite of furniture, of Queensland woods, aud Bris John Dcuchttr, Glengallan station, Darling Downs. It is no exaggeration to say that tho two suites surpassed in strength, beauty, and ; substantiality anything wo have yet seen im- j ported, and wo understand the cost will not ! exceed that of the imported goods of Iho samo class. Tho drawing-room suite consisted of easy choirs, ordinary chuirr, eontre tables, | card tables, writiug tables, cheflbnier, cabinet, ' and 'what-nots,' in forest oak, with yellow I wood mouldiugs and earrings, and cypress 1 pine panels.

BURRANGONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 19 September 1868

BURRANGONG. [»BOM OUO OWJf COBBB8POHMKT.1 On Monday last I visited the new rush at Tumbleton Creek, about which such glowing roports havo got into circulation, and I must confess that I experienced no little feeling of disappointment. Roport told of as high as six ounces to the dish, while prospects of from one ounce to a pennyweight were of common occurrence. But report— in this, as in many other instances with regard to rushes— told a 'too-flattering tale.' As near as I could judgo, there were botween thirty and forty miners at work on the rush, which is situated about three miles higher up tbo creek than the old prospecting claim whieh was tried about five years sgo. Some of tbe claims do occa sionally turn out good prospects; but the ground is very ? patchy,' and in many claims water is en insuperableobstacle. Tbe sinking is from sixteen to twenty-six feet, and those who are on the lead say that tbe gutter is only fivo feet wide, with a depth of wash of six inches. But it is imp...
