,I4TE" AID. . (snoir Tile LAUsCESTO' xi\AiNiER.) We have in vain quoted Scripture 'and cited history as adverse, determinately adverse, to state. aid. Thle recipients cover the passages ,quoted with sovereigns they receive aiind ignore their exis-. teuce.

JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
JAMBEROO. This place seems to have lapsed into a state of inac tivity and apathy, and there does not seem to he any spirit left in the once active and stirring farmers. The annual ploughing match which has been instituted a good many years, has died a natural death, and it is much to be 'regretted it has done so. Dairying and cattle jobbing is the only thing that will go down, and the young tirmors are not following the example of their fathers, the ground is left untilled, until it is run over with couch grass and weeds, and then it becomes abso. lutely imperative to do so. Now a regular system of farmlng would not only be more remunerative than at present, but also improve the taste and habits of the fiarmers and give a look of comfort and happiness to all around. And 1 think a ploughing match would revive the dormant faculties of our ft'rmers, and inmpirt to them a spirit of competition which would lead them to follow the occupation of the plough more on their own lands. And sure...

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
DIST'ICT INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) GERRINGONG. This locality being destitute of anything like news, " your correspondent" is in a fix for something out of which to communicate for this week's paper. As to the hackneyed topic of the weather, there are frequent changes of the wind and temperatures, but none of them bringing the much desired rain, consequently the feed is becoming dry and scarce; but for those engaged in harvest operations, the sunny days are all that could be wished for. The bills for the rate have made their appearance, and it is amusing to see the people ex amining them ; although believiug in the advantages to be derived from the Municipal Council, yet it is con trary to habit to pay beforehand for things unseen, that, together with the novelty of direct taxation in any shape, it makes the people view the missive with sus picion.

GRUMBLING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
GR MBLING. There is no greater obstacle to individiualt iiO, cess and good fortune than indulging in a' habit, of discontent and grumbling. Envy and many other bad passions result and follow from giving way to this disposition. I Believing in what'is termed 'f.luck," some people attribute all;the prosperity of others to good luck. Certainly, good luok, attends some in the same way as mismanagement or inattention, called .". bad luck'," attends others. It has been observed by a clever writer,:that " there is a great deal which passes for luck which is not such. Generally speaking, your. ' lucky fellows,' when one searches closely into" their history, turn out to be .your. fellows that know what they are doing, and how to do it in the right way. Their luck comes to 'them' because they manage well: it is luck well earned. They put themselves: in the way of luck. They keep themselves wide awake.

As at present decided, the vessel will leave Holy head on tile 24Lth October. There may be a short delay beyond this date, but it will not ex tend to more than a day or two.

The directors are, it is stated, satisfied with the performance of the ship on the late trial-trip.
