A FORTUNE PICKED UP ON THE HIGH SEAS.-The master and crew of the barque Sea Serpent have made a most important salvage, near Bird Island. It appears that about four o'clock on Thursday last they observed a full-rigged ship drifting . witlwut control, and on boarding frmnd her. to bc the Ulysses, and that she had .been abandoned. The captain of the Sci Serpent, leaving part of' his crew in charge, proceeded to the Bird Islands, where he engaged sufficient hands to work thc abandoned ship, at £20 each; and having made his arrangements sailed for Algoa Bay, which he reached the following day, bringing thc Ulysses safely into port. She is a fine ship of 934 tons, built at Dungarton, 1854, classed at Lloyds Al for nine years, belongs to Crawford of Greenock, and was on her voyage from Bombay to London. Her cargo is chiefly cotton and Indian produce, valued nt from £70,000 to £80,000. When boarded, she had five feet of water in the hold. On her quarter was written in large letters, in cha...

When thc ground is fenced, take.a good heavy sharp hoe about six inches in breadth, and cut off all thc grass clean and deep enough to kill all .roots, after which the grass and all other rubbish should be burnt. Then take a grubbing hoe, which ought to bc four inches wideb and break up the ground fine, and fully a foot deep, taking care to cut everything that comes in the way of thc hoe. Should thc season bc late, say October, plant the ground with maize, for October would bc too late for cotton, a...

VICTORIA. CcRiors RECOVERY or GOLD.-The parcel of gold, amounting to. 158 ozs., 9 dwts., which was stolen from thc box in the drives of thc Long Funnel Com- pany, Cobbler's Lead, in the beginning of last week, has been recovered in a rather strange cud ingenious way. From the position of thc box in which thc'gold was locked up, in the drives of thc company, it was at once seen that the robbery must have Wen effected by sonic one of the shareholders ; and as the theft was discovered almost imme- diately,' and precautions were taken to search every one before they ascended the shaft, thc company were satisfied that the stolen bag of gold mu. : hid somewhere in the drives below. But how to discover its whereabouts ? There, were large wide drives, willi with crooks and crannies and pools and puddles, and out-of-the-way holes and corners in them, extending for hundreds of feet, from the bottom of the shaft, and from these again were other cross drives, rendering it almost mi impossi- bil...

To thc Editor of C. and R. Examiner. Sm,-I beg to'inform yon that with- in .thc last few days Grafton has been favoured with a visit from a few of those gentlemen who endeavour to live more by their wits than by honest in- dustry.

It is to be regretted that tiley were not handed over to the authorities, to bc dealt with according to their deserts. I would advise the inhabitants of Grafton to bc on their guard, and keep a sharp look out. after this cl...

MUNICIPAL, COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 22 November 1859
MUNICIPAL, COUNCIL. AT thc Weekly Meeting on Thursday., no business was transacted, there not: being a quorum. There were present-His Worship thc Mayor, and Aldermen Cowan and Payne. Thc MAYOR took occasion to read thc 71st Clause pf thc Municipa- lities Act, -which imposes a fine of ¿CIO on any Chairman or Councillor (Mayor or Alderman) who may neglect his du- ties, and, in allusion to the subject, thought it was incumbent on thc offi- cers of the Corporation to be more at- . tentive. Shortly afterwards, Aldermen Lam- bert, Shoveller, Jones, and Avery made their appearance. Until a town dock be .erected, as a. guide to thc public, we should recom- mend considerable latitude to members before a meeting commences, for it is a well known fact that scarcely two watches in Grafton ever agree. On Thursday night, for instance, there was tlie usual diversity to bc observed in the watches of the Aldermen. The Council adjourned until Thurs- day next.
