LITERATURE. Pylonoaian Mythology, and Ancient Tmdl tional'History of the New Zealand Race, ■as furnished by tlieir Priests and Chiefs. By. Sir-George Grey, late Govei;nor-iu Chief of Now Zealand. Murray. Whoa the author of this curious volume ar rived among, tho strange people whom it wa3 Lis mission to govern and protect, he found himself helpless, and was wise enough to avow it. Tho talk about rights and wrongs, land, labor, sottlemenfc, and occupation,, was con stantly perplexed by grave allusions to mythic periods of New Zealand history, by quotations r of perfectly unintelligible proverbs, and by snatches of poetical citations—for the conclu sions of which, whereby alone sense could be made of the first half, the Governor had to seek among the people of the adjacent district. The compilers who built up the ' Iliad' and ' Odyssey' out. of tho frajimeiils sung by the rhapsodists, had no such laborious task as that which Governor Grey undertook and achieved ill mustering their dif...

REPRESENTATION FOR THE GOLDFIELDS. From the 'Argus,' [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

KB PRESENTATION FOR TII1S GOI/DFIELDS. From tho ' Argus,' It is understood that the Legislative Council will, on the 4th of October, be farther pro rogued fur about six weeks, to pnable the in lwbitants of tho goldfiulds to .'end' their representatives to the ensuing session. The elections for the goldfields will take place in November. We believe th:it for moat, if not all, of the new constituencies, candidates have come for ward; and in some cases there are double the number that can he returned. Indeed wo may assume that in all eases the diggers will have a choice, and it becomes an interesting question on what principle their choice should be regu lated. On this subject a few hints from us, as impartial spectators, with some experience in such matters, may not be without their use. Tho goWfields being a new interest, tlic greatest difficulties in legislating for them have arisen, in consequence of the general ignorance of honorable members in reference to their cir cumstancas, t...

REVERSES OF THE ALLIED ARMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

' BE-VEBSES OF'THE-ALLIED AB1IIE8. On the 18th June the English troops attacked the Redan, and the French the Malakolf Tower, without success. Both the French and ourselves sullered con siderably. These serious roverses sustained by the Allies 011 the morning of the ISth—reverses more fatal than the losses inflicted at Alma and Balaclava, and at Inkermann, have necessarily caused a profound sensa tion. The English loss was 1,-11*3 iu killed, missing, and wounded ; the French 8.338; making a grand total of 4,781. Our brave nines liad killed. , The French wounded 1,700, the English, 1.120. The French mis sing 017; the English, 150. These figures confirm Prince GortsohakofFs statejnent that, he took 000 French prisoners. The fighting on this fearful day, in the French ranks, must have been terrific, as the killed of tlmfc nation, were in the proportion of more than orie to two of the wounded; whereas iu previous encounters the wounded were.as five to one of the slain.

ABORIGINAL POESY. NO. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

ABORIGINAL POESY. NO. IV. When those who suppose that the passion of affection   is deficient amongst our miserable aboriginies can bring a parallel to the following one of many instances of devotedness, one will accord them a hearing. " Oona," Queen of Mount Koroit, one of the oldest living blacks, had a son called " Coop Carrip," whom she tenderly loved, and who was killed in an encounter with a hostile tribe at the Grange. Twenty-five years ago she discovered his bones, with great difficulty, and sewed them carefully into a wampa, or pillow slip, which, during all that weary period, has not been one single moment out of her arms. However varied other lubras may sing at the corobra, she has but one song, her LAMENT FOR COOP CARRIP,   The wyeroi tree adorned the banks of Wannon;   It was graceful and stately to behold! Its leaf was like the light of the morning, And its breath like the fragrance of spring. But, cold storms prevailed— The land ...

SLUSH CHANNELS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

SLUSH CHANNELS. The heading of this article does not indicate a very delightful subject, but it is necessary at times to turn our attcntion to matters more prac   tical than agreeable. Among these, few are of greater importance than the regulating of the streams of slush which flow from the pud-   dling machines throughout the various gullies. and which have proved so great a nuisance to the diggers who follow ordinary digging. Hitherto there has been little or no system observed in the carrying off of these streams of mud, and the result is, that in many local- ities waterholes have been destroyed, and good digging ground rendered positively unworkable, at all events for many months. When reverting   to this subject we cannot help thinking of the culpable carelessness of the gentlemen in former times, yeleped commissioners, whose duty it   was to have tasked their brains to devise such   regulations as would have been...

BALLARAT. (From tlhe Correspondent of the Geelong Advertiser.)   We had lately hopes held out to us that our main   road would be put in better order, but alas, as is usual, the delays of the Government are so great, that before the promise is realised the road is useless; at the present time the coating of metal which is on the timber work of the bridge across the creek is rapidly coming off, and a week or two will render the bridge perfectly useless.         At the foot of Bakery Hill, just in front of the new London and Chartered Bank, the road has got into such a state as to be literally impassable, and conveyances and drays are compelled to take a nearly equally impas sable line over Bakery Hill. The amount of sticking, swearing, and general dis comfort, which this main road is causing is incalcu   lable; were there any properly organised body, duly au thorised to collect and expend the m...

The meeting was clearly an objectless one, so far as regarded any public good to bo done. Captain Brown failed to induce any one to take the chair, and in consequcnco was obliged to address the ussemblago without going through the customary forms of a public meetiug. Ilis remarks consisted of a tirade of abuse against tlmt " dirty rag" the Advertiser, which he "would put down iu a fortni...

If the diggers refuse to unite in companies for the proper working of the old work ings, they must expect the said workings to be let out to those who will do so, and it will only be serving them right if large numbers of them have to bear the fruits of their own folly and neglect. : I cannot help, Mr. Editor, referring to the unfeeling conduct of hun dreds of diggers on Saturday last, who, while the meet ing which was .called for tlieir benefit was going on, seemed utterly careless about it, and passsed and re passed it as ...

THE PROVIDENT INSTITUTE. It has been a most deplorably unfortunate matter, not only for individuals, but for the colony at large, that hitherto no means has existed for the profitable investment of the savings of the working man. We have seen gold-diggers—not those few lucky ones, who have of course chosen their native land and tbe society of their relatives and intimates for the exhibition of their glittering hundred weights j but the many, who, though but mo derately fortunate, had still amassed sufficient to place them in easy, affluent, and independent positions in other countries, leave our shores by shiploads for some neighboring and more favored colony, where their earnings might be turned to good account. We know that a vast per centage of these persons wonld have re mained in Victoria had sufficient inducements been held out to them to do so. This unfor tunately was not the cage, and we have con sequently lost very many valuable and useful colonists. The evil consequences a...
