The auctioneer, Tuoner, of Kiloollen, who sold his lordship's stud died suddenly the day after he ksnocked down the horse; and a gentleman of the Queen's County, Ir'e.ltd, who on that oc casion purchased Gemma, went mad in twenty four hours after he became the possessor of the animal.-Glasgow Sentinel.

Things are, in fact, as bad as they can possibly be. Hundreds of men hero are making their grub, though they work like horpes. It is a bad sign to stand at the slaughter-yards and see sen of respectable appearance carrying away the offal, heads, feet, plucks, paunches, &c., when the animals are killed. "In the absence of any fresh payable ground, the place appears to be done up; the small esoort of last week, when the weather was fine and everybody at work, is a proof of this. For five days the weather was beautiful, not a cloud to be seen. There are now about 2500 people here at work, that is to say upon all the rushes; for wo have a fresh rush every day or so, with the one resutlt-all duffers. The greatest rush at...

WEDNEDSAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1860. NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 September 1860
WEDNEDBSAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1860. NO TICE. WE beg to inform our subscribers at Kiama, Jamberoo, Shellharbor, and Jerringong, that at the end of this month (being the termination of the present quarter) we intend to discontinue the practice of sending the Examiner round by a courier. We are induced to take this step for two reasons -first, on account of the expense which it entailed, and secondly, because of its being found to work unsatisfactorily. During the late winter months it has required two horses to perform the bi-weekly journey by the way of Jamberoo to Shellharbor, and the keeping and feeding of these, with the wages of a lad to ride, together with a weekly payment to tihe postmen for taking the papers southward, formed no in considerable item of expenditure. And, besides this, mistakes were constantly occurring in the delivery: numerous complaints having been made to us on that score. We have endeavored as far as we could to cheek any irregularity, but as it was impossible t...
