SHELLRARBOR. (Frnoo O?R CORRESPONDENT.) Ta CaoPs.--Tlo wheat in this neigh bourhood is showving the effects of rust (or blight). It was hoped that Shelllarbor would be favored beyond olther places; but the last week's experience has proved the contrary to be the case to an unmistakeablo degree.

THIE POLICE AND THE ]BUS"I- - IRANG ERB S . . (Toilhe lditotr of the Herald.) SoI,--During the last feow. minonths a vast deal has been written in the fera'tld aed othr -papers relative to the inelli cicncy of the police, because theoy hlve not had the ".good luck to capture Gil beit arid his.gasng," and .maty have been thile stiggestions laid before the 'public. Now, Sir, not.one in a lundrcd of .these " good folk' understand- the subject they have written ibout; I agree with aill that thed "police" as at present organised will liever teke these rascals except.by acci dent.

THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
THE U1 LTTLE OF GETTYSBURG. The battle of.Gettysburg' does inddeed appear to havc' presented some of the grandcst scenes of the horribly sublime kIind that have been seeni in aiy war. Onur correspondent, describinig the chargeo of the Opnfedera:tes up the COcmetery- ill, held by the Federal' contre, writes:-"3 should have fancied that no such sceno had evoie before reached mortal eye or ear. :thicek canopy of smoke, constantly rent by brighbt darting flashes of 'flame, east its: dense pall over tlhe struggling bleeding thousands w?hlo toiled andi died in its centre, while out of tlhe opaque glonm, as though fromn the bowels of the esarth, ono deep prolonged bellowing roar never ccnsed to issue. Through tlhe deep. ening twilight, and on far into the night, the fierce struggle continued, until in the gloom the ':dazzling' parabolas of flame, bursting into sparkliisg jets and corusca tions, as the shells cracked and oexploded, •made a ghiitly pyrotechfiic display."

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
THE result of the contested "ledtion at Orange, which had for some days previous to its decision drawn to itself the concen trated attention of those who in this country are in the habit of watching the movementsof public men and the progress ofpublicbusiness, has been such as to show tlhe folly of those who undertake to predict with confidence thie very uncer tain issue of an appeal to popular favour under universal suffrage. BIMr. ?IMaaTI has had the mortification (and we have no doubt'he feels it accutely) of finding himself unsedted at the very electorate whlich, about one year since, returned him to Parliament as a more testimony, he probably thought, to the political cha racter and intellectual talentsof the man it delighted tohonour. Those whopassed contemptuous' opinions on the project of C. CuoPEn, jun., to oppose Mr. MAR~cTIN, and predicted his humiliatillg defeat (and such prophets were many) are now re duced to the expedient of showing that at any rate they ought to have...
POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
POLICE. T?'hrc are nrc now, few persons who are not convinced that Mr. Cowpor's Police Act, if not repealed in Itot must, nt any rate, in order to be rendered conducive to the public henehit, be greatly modified. There are some, however, who, na if to ingrati ate thcmseclves with the natural enemies of good order and of its professled guardians, seem to take every opportunity of making t~he individual employed appear infected with all the vices of the system, and with some of his own. Just after the pitbliea cation of our last issue, a newspaper came to hand, in which we ibfmd some very hlos tile strictures on the conduct of senior-con stable George Young, who had, as reported by us, apprehended a man inamed Minshlall, on suspicion of his being one of the escaped prisoners from l3errim. :lIn a lengthy para graphl oni tihe slubjeet, the ianti-police writer atae advanltag of the rcircumstanie that a mistakle was aictually made, in order to in sinuatlc against the lmigistrates and cons...
NATIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
SNATIONAL EDUCATION. SSome.persons concernedin the subjeei of education had been at some trouble to give publicity to an intention held by themin to calL a public meeting for the purposo. of considering the best meanis of establishling a Vested Nationial School. Tle propriet.y, nay the necessity, of doing this, was suffu ,eontly evident; for whabt is the 'state of tihe "flourishing" town of Kiama in regard to piovision for the cultivation of :those faculties, the possession of which forms the great diference between our childrein and tie progeny of thile horses and cattle of the district P . It is simply this: : iama is pro videdwith a sort of a tham to.represent each of the systems advocated by various sectioilsof the people. A school on the'de nbminational plan is held in it frail and re clinifig tenement in which ino breeder of valuable stock probably would trust a horse which he wished tq Ikeep out of harm's way.

WEEKLY SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
WEEKLY SUMMARY 1O NEWS. THE RANSO3 M1ONEY OF Ma. KEIGHTLEY. -Some of the notes paid by Mr. Ilotton to obtain the release of Mr. Keightley, have been recovered. From wha t we have learned, it appears that onyesterday morn ing, a young man named Donald Cheshire --who is a cousin of the Vanes--came into 1Mr. Webb's store, and there puirchased a double-trigger revolver (price £9), for which he paid two £5 notes-receiving in change £1. Shortly after Mr. Webb took the notes into the bank of Now South Wales, when it was discovered that they corresponded with two of those paid to Gilbert. Cheshirethereupon was followed, Sarrested, and taken to the lock-up, On his nerson being searched, we believe, four n ioro of the £5 notes were found, and also thet following list of articles, which, it is lpposed, he was commissioned to buy: "Big follow-revolver, £8, crape, mother's - iedicine, caps, powder, and bullets." It has also transpired that this worthy visited the shop. of Mr. Fedrotta, the gunls...

THE FLYING COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 November 1863
TIE FLYING COLUMN. After the capture of the rifles from the bush-felling party on the great South Road, and the subsequent attack by the Maories on the piquet at Pokeno, Colonel Nixon was given the command of a body of men intended for special service in the district lying between the Great Southern Road and the sea, and Iromn the Waikato to Manukau harbor. The force consisted of about sixty men and olficers of the Colonial De fence Corps, of thl company of Forest Rangers under Lieitenant Jackson, and of details of the 40thl, 65th, and 70th Regi ments, under Captain Rutherford-in all about 2,10 men.' Before this force received its final instructions the Pukekohe stockade had been attacked, and before the means of transport were afforded to the column, the murders at Burtt's fhrm had taken place. The natives, in fact, had possession of the forest, and of the bush farms of Pukekohe and Tuimata, with the back clearings of .'Mauku and Wainku. The settlers' home steads at Pukckohe and it...

NEW ZEALAND. (Foe the Herald's Correspondenl.) Auckland, October 15.--As I half antuici pated when I wrotc my last letter from this place, the arrival of the gunboat from your port has delayed for a few days the advance of the General's force into tile Tipper Wai kato districts.
