' I take it for granted that, whatever local politicians with selfish or ulterior objects may urge to the contrary, your Government will at once admit the right which this Government has to reooive and ap propriate the duties in question, and. to avail itself of all legitimate means for their collection. It must, at the same time, be admitted .that we cannot call upon your Government, as a matter of right, to aid us in any way in such collection ; but we think, nevertheless, that thore are ampl...

A tcoxous -cow. — On Friday, George Ronald, a man in the employ of Mr R. Dawes, of Linton, got a severe shaking by a oow recently purchased from Mr Morton, and guaranteed perfectly quiet. In trying to boil her up, the animal first rushed a boy named Milligan, knocking him down, and going over him. She then turned at the man, knocked him down, tore off his clothing, and severely bruised and grazed him in the thigh,, groin, and chest. There is no doubt had the man been less powerful he would have been gored to death. ' While lying on the ground, he succeeded in holding the cow s...

GLENLYON FALLS, ON THE UPPER LODDON—SEE PAGE 7. GLENLYON FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 September 1864

GLENLYON FALLS, ON THE UPPER LODDON— see page 7. GLENLYON FALLS. These falls are upon the' Upper Loddon, and are in fact a succession of leaps which that river is com pelled to take infindingits way over a broken, rough and stony surface. The perpendicular banks which are seen at the top of the falls are the common basal tic rook of Australia, and it is through a deep cleft in this same formation that the Loddon in this part of its course has, during the lapse of centuries, continued to work its way. This is but one of a thpneuid similar scenes . to bo found among our Australian 'mountain streams and along the line of onx creeks, even on the lower tracks of country. In fact, there; is not, perhaps* a squatter's run of any extent throughout the territory that will not furnish its touches and glimpses of the picturesque, and offer to the artist's pencil little moroeaux of nature's beauties like the Glenlyon waterfalls.

LOSS OF THE FANNY MERRIMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 September 1864

LOSS OF THE FANNY MERRIMAN.' 2nd August, 18C4. — I wrote to you, via Auckland, on the 23rd of J.uly, informing you of the loss of the Fanny Merrinian, of Sydaoy, Webb, master. In case tho Tawera should make a quick passage, I now send a few lines, for X know you like to have all the nows you can for your widely 'circulated ptiper.

THE VALUE OF THE RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 September 1864

THE VALUE OF THE RUNS. There is little doubt but that the coming Parlia ment, in legislating on the land question, will also have to take into consideration the terms upon which the pastoral tenants of the Crown hold their runs, not only as regards the duration and security of their tenure, but also as regards tho amount con tributed by them to the general revenue in return for the privileges which they enjoy. That the assessment or rental paid by the squatters for the use of the waste . lands of the Crown is anything approaching-, their value will be maintained by none who., are not either directly or indirectly interested in the matter. The pastoral tenants themselves have, we know, frequently asserted that their runs have been assessed at too high a rate; but, notwithstanding this, they have expressed the greatest alarm at the very idea of having them thrown open for public com petition, and their rental fixed at auction. We bolieve that but a very imperfect conception has ever b...

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND. Brisbane is the chief town or capital of Queens land, the youngest of the Australian colonies, and lying north of New South Wales, on the eastern side of the continent of New Holland. This colony ?was proclaimed so recently as 3rd June, 1859, and, towards the latter end of that year, its first Go vernor, Sir G. Bowen, arrived, andits formal separa tion from New South Wales was accomplished. Its area comprises 678,600 square miles, and it has a seaboard of 2250 miles. It is said to be the largest of all the British colonies— double the extent of Canada, and one half larger than the British Isles, France and Spain all added together. Its climate is much warmer than that of New South Wales, but not at all insalubrious to those Europeans who know how to acclimatise themselves. It is for the most part a pastoral country, and its immense terri tory was' speedily, after the formation of the colony, divided into capacious runs, which became the ob jects of very eager s...
