We will take alittle of the fire out of you. How do you live ? I,-I aint particular, as the ooster said when they axed him ifhe'd be fried or roasted.

THE "NOBBLER." A MUCH-ABUSED MEMBER OF MOST COMMUNITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 September 1860
THE "a OBBLER.' . A MUCH-ADUSED MEMDER OF MOST COMMUNITIES. "(GivE a dog a.bad name and hang :him."' All, well, a mighty difference exists between, the use of an article and the abuse of it, What would become of the pretty scoldings we get from our sweethearts and wives, were we to allow .only one nobbler to do the work popu larly attributed to some half-dozen ? I'm rather of opinion that, having fairly lost such a fertile sou:coe of grumbling, our fair castigators might nossibly sigh for a return of the evil. 'Twould be a sad blow to tlhe Mrs. Caudle school were we all to turn " good boys',' of a sudden. An end to all those dear familiar lectures delivered in frills and fretfulness ; and Prudence in a petti coat could no longer shake her finger at her erring spouse.

MIISCELLANROUtq EXTRACT,.' AN ENGLISI LADY OF oRANi AS TUE WIFE OF A BEDOUIN CHIEF.-ThboSyrian correspon dent of the Boston Travellcr gives the following account of the freaks of an English lady of rank and beauty who has lately become the wife of a Bedouin'Chief :-" At the hotel of Mr. Rarey I found a most singular specimen of the English woman, who. seems to emulate the character of the famous and once powerful Lady Hester Stan hope-known as Lady Digby ; she' excites the mirth and ridicule of the natives, but as the wife of Sheikh Miguil-the Bedouin Chief of Dames cus-she yields a powerful influence aniong the Bedouins of the desert. Possessed of an ample fortune, Lady Ellenborough, once the favorite, of the Court of St. James, after her fall aud divorce became the wife of a Russian nobleman, and then of a Greek Prince ; she established her self in Damascus a few years ago.

ARSENIC IN AGRICULTURAL PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 September 1860
.ARSENIC IN AGRICULTURAL PLANTS.-Ur. E. W. Davy has detected arsenic in peas, cab bages, and Swedish turnips, which had been manured with superphosphate of lime. This fertilizer is very. extensively manufactured in England, especially for use on the turnip crop, from various phosphatic minerals, and from bones, by the help ofarsenical oil of vitrol. The arsenic, thus being proved to enter vegetation, may very easily and naturally pass into animals, and be retained in their organism. This is a nother striking, presumptive proof of the worth lessness of that toxological 'evidence which:I hangs a man on the strenjgth of minute tetces of: arseuic being found in working up several podnd of flesh and viscoera.

'PArthur and Co., of the Greenhill Iron Store. It will prove a vast accommodation to the inhabitants, and I trust will be cordially and well supported. Certain desirable repairs have recently been made in the main thoroughfaresof the township, under the direction of the Municipal Council, and the Im provement Committee for Nowra ward, at a late meeting, passed the following resolution : " That the Mayor he requested to bring under the notice of the Bench of Magistrates the almost impassable state of that part of the Southern road from the end of Casey's contract to the now bridge in Kinghorne-street, with the object of the same being placed in a state of sufficient repair." The Bench immediately appropriated the sum of £70, to he expended on the abovo line, under the direction of the Council; and tenders will be...

JAMIMBEROO. August 31. As the warm weather approaches, one naturally expects to hear sometlhing of the reptile population of the coun. try: and this spring we are not disappointed-for al though we have scarcely yet had the odour of warm weather in outr nostrils, tihe snakes appear, if report may he credited, to have been tmaking as strong a muster as if they intended the entire conquest of the colony-as the human aborigines of New Zealand seem bent on l similar feat. 'lhe particular report to which I allude is one which probably has been repeated in Kiama as wdll no here. The purport of it, wvhether true or fidae, is. tlat the men occupied in forming the road olver the hill at Meadow Bank, discovered the other day an extraordiary number of those amiable creatures-l ay some three hun dred, chicfly youngsters, all lying perdu, among and under the vtoien which they (the meie) found it neces sary to shift during their work; nud all within a few, varls aloulg the liie.

REMARKABLE COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 September 1860
REnARKABLE COINcrnExcE.-It will be remem. hered thatl at the August sittings of the Court of Qunarter hessions, last year, sailors, named Leguire and Thompson, were sentenced to two years on the roads for assaulting a constable in the execution of his duty. They have recently been liberated on the recommendation of the District Court Judge. It is a remarkable circumstance thnat these men probably owe their lives to their detention in prison. They were at the time of the commission of the offence, a portion of the crew of the Specu lant; and that vessel has since been lost with all hands.--fcilland Mercury.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 September 1860
NBIY ZEALAND. -4 Tun Melbourno Aye says: --Some rather unpleasant revelations are gradually oozing out with reference to the lute disastrous Puke takaure affair in New. Zealand, which reflect discredit upon soerrifady besides Colonel Gold. From information upon which we can rely, it now appears that representations were made to the staff officer prior to the departure of tile attacking party for the scene of action, to the effect that the native who bad been appointed guide to the party did not understand our lan guage, and could not be communicated with; that therefore he was next to useless. But although there was an interpreter available he was not sent, and thus the " blind leading the blind " was allowed to be the order of the day. This was mistake No. 1. Next, the men were overloaded, each .man having to carry 80 rounds of ammunition, one day's rations, a water keg, then belts over their ordinary coats, and their great coats over all. Thus equipped the little band of some 120 ...

Tuie Monat Pleasant school has re-opened, and will likely be canied on at least until the opening of the National ichool, which the local patrons wish to take place in_ five or six weeks. Talking of schol'd, reminds matef another examination I had the pleasure of being present at last week; but as it was less public than the one recorded some time since, and of rather an humble character, I did not mention; yet less noteworthy events often furnish matter for country correspondents. " In an old hut, on Mr. Milligan's firm, for the last nine months the academy has flourished under the care of an invalid soldier, who, though not a great scholar, has shown himself apt to teach the elements of knowledge,-commencing with six, he has now fourteen pupils. The Rev. Mr. Ashwin examined them in spelling, reading, writing, tables, and Scripture, and then kindly presented a few bcoks as prizes, and satisfied all down to th...

Henry 'Vallentine, of the firm of.Vallentine andCo., of Ross. Mr. Val lentine was known to almost every tradesman and merchant of both Launceston and lobart Town, and his frank and easy manner, his gentlemanly exterior and. energy in business ensured him a ready welcome reception at what ever counting-houlse, or private establishment he made his appenrance. Connected with the Midland Quartz Crushing Company, of which lie was secretary, he conducted its business as he expected to fortune, but as it turned out to his own ruin.

?0 TO: EODITOR O TH?B IAIUA LA0MINE3. Stl,-In your last ntpaher appears a notice respecting the death'of my wi?f nd the causes to which it has been attributed, aninely i'ght and alarm by file. Permit me to state the ?e larly in your next issue. Al:out three we Ehefro her death she was somewhat startled bh hearin scream from one of our souns in the milking-yard, whisl, however, did not appear to produce any serious effects. The second report is without the elilltest foumia:ion in truth. If I may be allowed to offer my own opinion as to the cause of her death, I would say it was owing entirely to the inevitable accomplishment of God's eternal decree, in whose book all our membecr were written, and in whomo sight the very hairs of our head are all numbered. I am, Sir, yours, &e., JAMES HAItYISON. Springfield, August ?0, 1860.
