THE TRIALS OF JOURNALISM. 'The labours of tbe journalist are a perpetual 'puzzle to tho uninitiated. . O'ten absurdly over rated — often unjustly decried — they ore rarely estimtted at their true value. The editor of a successful journal is to some a bugbear, to others an oracle ; and this, according to the tpmnrr nf the reader, far mnro thiin to the. real merits of the trlicles dignified with the editorial ' we.' With many, the having once been slighted or misjudged by a cingle newspaper it held a sufficient ground for a standing feud with the whole daily and weekly Press.

Tumut Police- Court. Wednesday, January 15th. Before the Police Magistrate. William Eggleton, senior, was brought up under a search warrant, a portion of the car- case of a beast suspected to be stolen having been found in his possession. The evidence of Sergeant Tant was taken, and the prisoner was remanded till Friday, the 17th instant; Bail allowed. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; On a former occasion we' called attention to the excess in charge for the transit across our bridge of herds of cattle or flocks of sheep, as calculated to diminish' instead of increase &nbsp; the amount of tolls taken, and to lessen the public utility of our viaduct.

THE SCHOOL FOR GENIUS, To console ordinary mortals, and to prove that there is a compensation in their position in life, we give tbe following rery clever and, in many respects, faithful description of the proper school for a genius, from Circe, a tale published in.

FAMILIAR NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 25 January 1868
FAMILIAR NAMES. Everybody knows the comparative frequency with which in a gives number of inhabitants ol t-ny locality tbe name of 'Smith' recurs. Wby this is, is a more difficult matter to solve. Reference to tho London Commercial Directory for 1867 shows tbat more- than 1500 Smiths are registered, onu mo curious may ime to know that 130 answer to the Christian name of John. And be it remembered that theBe are all householders and beads of families. If we add the Women and children, the lodgers and working men of tbe same clan ull over London, whose names do not appear in Directories, wo . eliall have a population of Smiths equal to tbat of many considerable towns which return their two members to Parliament. Tbe Joneses are only balf the number of tbe Smiths. Next to them come the BroffDB,' who, however, fall e-liort of 700; tbe JoIidbods and the Wil liamBea muster some 500 each; wbile the hardly lesB familiar name of Robinson is borne by only about 200 person;.
