No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 February 1860

The?Town Surveyor has furnished our "Mi nicipal Council with an estimate of the probable expense'of making that port of the Gerrinoig?hg road extending from Mr. KENDELL'B land to tlheo old Bong Bong road. He thinks the cost, of making thoroughly this piece of road would be. about £2,037. He has carefully surveyed also the proposed new line, from Mr. KENDALL'S land totheBongBongroad, thought by some to be more direct, and therefore preferable to the line now trafficked, and he estimates the c6st of .making thenew line at £1~,945, a sum nearly equal to that required to make the present road. We would suppose that compensation would be sought by those through whose lands the new road would go. If so a small sum in the shape of compensation added to the cost of making the new ioad, would increase the total amount to a sum considerably more than that required to make the present road a good one. We would therefore recommend the thorough ma king of the present road from Mr. Kendall's land...

JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 February 1860

JAMBEROO. ; The meeting called by public advertisement to aid in the objects of the Bible Society, took place on Monday evening last in the Episcopalian Schoolhouse in this village. The attendance was pretty good, and the chair occupied by D. L. Waugh, Esq. Several resolutions in accordance with the aims and objects of the society were brought forward, and somne able speeches made in their support, as I am informed; for I was unable to attend myself through fittigue and indisposition. The principal result for the presenlt, I believe, has been the appointment of a female committee, or rather staff of collectors, for the benefit of the society's fiinds. It will, I suppose, be no news to tell you, that a storm of extraordinary violence and splendor was raging here last night (Wednesday). I lhavo not heard, however, that any damage has been done by the lightning, though uncommonly vivid.

SHOALHAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 February 1860

SHOAL AVEN. In my last commmiieation, I made soine.remniarks on the delays in..the Survey department. .These remarks had refereiiee more immediately to the land euestion, as it is essential 'to keep the publio alive to the 'fact, that if they are obliged t .wnit on ,Government survey before selection or.purchase, they will never be better off than formerly. There are too many interests at stake to per mit the poor settler to become a 'freeoblder; and these interests will so bear on the survey as to virtually exclude the people from the public laind. It is, then, highly im portiint tliat thle principllo of free selection before survey should be carried out, anid this in reality rests with' the peoplle :tlhemselves. All land-sharks and speceulators, iecluding the mnonied interest, take the part of the' squatters: for shloild the above principle becomeolaw; they know. well that the game is up with them, and they must submit to the indignity of seeing the'laboring:class ris' in the soci...

Rumors that Mr. Berry intends selling or letting large portions of his magnificent estates in these parts, has set a good deal of surmise and speculation afloat.
