THE NOVELIST. [ MAEK ITELLiTOOSr. HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND ESCAPES. CHAPTER IX.-SAVED.-A STEP IN LIFE. As the night closed in, Mark still lay insensible on the raft. A light breeze now blew off the land, and propelled tho vessel slowly to the westward. The in shore current seemed exhausted : at any rate, its influence upon tho raft was not perceptible. Through the night, Mark lay stunned, and lost to all consciousncss^of . hisjterriblo position. It was not until day broke that ho recovered his sonscs. Around him there was nothing but a waste of water. Ho clasped his hands together with a cry of despair. But soon thc courage of the lad returned to him, He Mt, too, tho demands of hunger and thirst, and sot about to satisfy them. Happily, he found his pro visions in good order; and, having eaten a hearty meal, now felt more hopeful. As the day woro on the wind freshened, until at last it blew pretty stiflly-still off thc land. The raft be haved handsomely, riding over tho waves like...

Chops the Dwarf. A NEW STORY BY CHARLES DICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Chops the Dwarf. A NEW STORY BY CHARLES DICKENS. At ono period of its rovorses, the House to Let fell into the occupation of a Showman. Ho was found registered as its occupier, on the parish hooks of thc time when ho rented tho House, and there was, there fore, no need of any clew to his name. But he himself was less easy to bo'found: for ho had led a wandering lifo, and settled people had lost sight of him, ami people who plumed themselves on being respectable were shy of admitting that they had over known any thing of him. At last, among tho marsh lands near the river's level, that lio about Deptford and tho neigh bouring market gardons, a Grizzled Personage in vol vetoon, with a face so out up by varieties of weather that he looked as if he had been tattooed, was found smoking a pipe at the door of a wooden house on wheols. Tho wooden house was laid up in ordinary for tho Winter near tho mouth of a muddy creek; and everything near it, the foggy river, tho misty marshes, »nd tho s...

Very Strange—But True. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Very Strange-But True. [CONCLUDED.] Two years after thc strange occurrences before related, and when I had almost begun to regard them as the production of a sick brain, I paid my friend and his newly married biide a visit. I found everything about tho station and neighbourhood as I had left it, save the fishing station. That, I was told, had been broken up, anda new ono formed two miles lower down the river. Tho old bark canoe had disappeared, and a substantial boat had been brought all tho way from Sydney, and was swung up in quite seamanliko fashion under a spacious awning. Wo passed many pleasant hours together in this boat on the river ; but my friend novcr once took us to the old fishing ground, although it is perhaps the finest sheet of water on the Murray. For my part, I was unwilling to allude to tho circumstances which caused my abrupt departure two years pre viously; and though my friend had manifested the utmost alarm and curiosity at that time to know my reason for so s...

A Horrible Compact. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

A Horrible Oompaot. Tho Court of Assizes of Chalon-sur-Saono, says tho London Echo, has just tried ' two mon named Auzevat and Cliaumont for murder. A" couplo of moro hardened vii-.. lains than tho accused coidd not be easily imagined, and tho cold-blooded manner in which this and other crimes were con. ? oootcd between them reads like a pago of some low sensational romance. Chaumont, a small cultivator, had lived on bad terms with a neighboui-, a wino grower named Guichard, and having ono day, during a quarrel, fractured the skull of the latter by a blow from a pickaxe, waa condemned to eight months' imprisonment and to pay 1000 francs dama ges. Theuidea*of giving money . to his enemy greatly irritated him, and while undergoing his sentence ho made offers to several of his fellow-conviots to pay 1000 francs to anyono who would kill Guicliaul ? for him.

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Facts for Farmers. RUSSIA is and must be a giant because she is mighty in wheat, leather, and iron. ONE SNORT of a locomotive is worth a thousand tons of guano for making land sell high. POWER in nations in the last analysis comes down to a question of wheat and coal That Government can stand up to hard fighting longest which can produce the greatest crops of wheat while war is raging, and which can keep afloat the most steam war vessels. THRIFTY FARMERS are of two sort : one works to make his farm twice as valuable- the other works to lay up twice as much money this year as he did last. THE MOST important class in community is food-pro ducers, the next in power are those who deal in com forts, the least valuable are those who live by the luxuries. AN ENGLISH FARMER, by picking over his seed wheat with the utmost care and planting a grain in a place, at intervals of a foot each way, produced 1G2 bushels to the acre. WOULD you force garden plants and have the earliest green peas V Sp...

MAJOR'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

MAJOR'S CREEK. Major's Creek is soon reached from Dargue's reef for you come upon the "Welcomo Stranger" almost at once - the Welcome Stranger is a ten head battery well put together by Mr. Eisenstadler, and supplied with water by a lift or belt of buckets-the whole is in good working order, and with the exception, perhaps, of tho discs, likely to continue so. The other mill is called Wilson and Munroe's, is also a ten head of shafts, and discharges on both sides into deep troughs. The tables being laid from one end, the engine stand ing across tho other-she is by Barratt and Son, of Gainsboro', 12-horso power-the stamp heads are five cwt. each. The batteries aro fixed in a solid frame of wood, and during my visit repairs were going on to the shanks and discs, the latter being of two imprcs Bibles, and yielding a character. If amount of labour spent in the search, is any index to the value of what is sought, this creek must have have been rich. It has had so much experience in being...

Mining Items. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Mining Items. Wis tako tho following from tho correspondence of various local journals : Abdications have been mado for tho registration of Tho Enterprise Quartz Mining Company, at Trunkey Creek. Tho nominal capital of thc Company is 30,000 shares of £1 each. Tho amount already paid up is £20,000 in 20,000 shares, and £2493 15s. in 10,000 sharos. It is stated by a correspondent that some of thc par tics who loft Ironbarks to tiy their luck at Clarice's Bald Hills havo returned, not finding the ground pay ablo under present circumstances. It seems that tho gold lies chiefly in cement, and there is no crushing machinery in the neighbourhood. Morcovor, water is very scarce ; and to make a road to thc Macquarie Uiver would, from tho naturo of tho country, involve an enormous amount of labour. A party of Italians, however, uro still at work, having secured a small supply of .water in a dam, and intend to cany on, if possible, until winter sets in.

CORRESPONDENCE. A Flying Visit to Bourke. [FROM OUR TRAVELLING REPORTER.] No. 2.—FROM DUBBO TO BOURKE. AFTER the necessary preparations for the start, the mail coach (a very nice one, having an awning over the top) was driven up to the hotel to take us up. It was rather heavily laden with mail bags, parcels, and fruit ; the latter I was informed, was for Bourke, as the people of that place never got any fruit excepting what is brought from Dubbo per mail. "We had also some heavy parcels, which I thought contained luxuries appropriate to the season, and calculated to produce a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. There were only throe of us, the driver, myself, and   another passengor, but there was not any too much room. The horses did the contractors (Messrs. Beresford and Jones) credit, being well bred and in first-rate condi- tion. On starting from Dubbo the first thing worth mentioning is the fine bridge across the Macquarie River. It is constructed of wood, and co...
