PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 October 1864

PBOGRESS OF THE COLONY. . , .The condition of the oolbnyis shown in a very satisfactory light by the revenue tables recently published,] for the year and quarter ending tho 13th September, last. The three months ending tho above-datb' chow, ; as t ? compared with the some period of the preceding year, an increase of £128,925 14s Sd, the nine months a like comparative increase of £223,332 12s 7d ; and the twelve months, as compared with the twelve months 'ending the 30th September, 1863, an increase of £151,929 14s. As compared with the estimate for the year, as pre pared - by 'Mr Verdon, the nine months show a deficiency bJE £149,108 2s lid. This, however, is very 'satisfactorily accounted for. In tho land revenue alone we find a foiling off of £100,553 8s Id, caused by the determination of the Ministry not to ploy into. the hands of speculators and monopo lists, by forcing auction .Bales pf . the bestagricul tural lands, as was dpne by the preceding Adminis tration.

POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 October 1864

POLICY OF THE GOVEBNiMENT. Another member of the Ministry — the hon. J.t G.

Ho does ; notj' how- ever, overlook the ether questions,' espe pecially that of a v future land . administration.

AUSTRALIAN NATIVES VISITING AN OUTSTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 October 1864

AUSTRALIAN NATIVES VISITING AN OUT STATION. The sketch in which our aborigines appear is simply a re-production of a scene by no means up, ? frequent in the earlier days of pastoral settlement in thiB country, before the native tribes had been re duced to such sparse relics aa. now survive. Two bor'y; natives, not. as yet reduced to the misshapen, emaciated specimens which occasionally appear: in our streets now-a-days, are represented as having arrived with their 'jinsV at a stock-rider's hut. The men, decently clad in opossum skin rugs, have brought some native-made weapons— snoh as boome rangs, alriolds, axes, waddies and' spears, to barter for- prog, tobacco, flour, as it may be, or an old knife or two, with the European and civilised in truders that '.: have taken possession of their old hunting grounds.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 October 1864

CRICKET. The cricketing season of 1864-5 may be consi- dered to have been fairly inaugurated on 1st inst., though there was no match on the metropolitan ground. Football, which had a few months of sickly existence during the winter, has now been very willingly abandoned in favor of a pastime which makes some appeal to the intellectual part of man, and which, to be successfully practised, re- quires much more on the part of the devotee than mere fleetness of foot, or unimpressionable shins, besides having the weighty reverence of age and association, handed down from the old noblesse of England's cricketers. The season promises to be an unusually brilliant one. During the recess prepara tions have been made on most of the suburban cricket* grounds upon a very spirited scale, and the long list of matches shown by the programme drawn tip at the recent conference of secretaries ia suffi cient evidence of the intention to cultivate thegamo after the most vigorous and systematic fashion. ...
