SHOALHAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 8 February 1868

SHOALHAVEN. [FRon OUR CORRESPONDENT.] IT is rumoured that our local here is in hot' water with the Kianma Pilot; in fact I have seen a para graph in the former which states that a libel suit has been started against the latter to 2001. damages. Very reasonable demand 1r a libel has been pub lished, which I very much doubt, and am inclined to the opinion that the word commonly used " Bosh," is very applicable to what an equity lawyer would term " a state of facts." Wo have had about ten days of more or less rain, and it has proved a blessing to the district. T'he hitherto parched ground now,sends forth luxuriant grass, and the crops are in a flourishing condition. Last year not half orops were secured, but if ap pearances are to be relied on as at present the far mers expect a remunerative return for the labour they have bestowed.

PLUCKY CONDUCT OF H.R.H. THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. ELEPHANT SHOOTING AT THE CAFE. A CORRESPONDENT, writing to the Times from the Cape, gives an account of two days' elephant shooting enjoyed by the Duke of Edinburgh, in the Knysna division of the colony. On the 10th of September in formation was given by the scouts that- an old bull elephant, which -the Duke had a fancy to shoot, had been seen in the forest and that day was occupied in reaching the spot indicated by the reports :-At Duffels Nek, the waggons having come up, the camp was pitched, and "all went merry as a marriage bell," but unfortunately, about 9 o'clock at night, it began to'rain heavily, accompanied with a strong wind. All who were under canvas, made it out pretty well, bat those who had to rough it, with.mother earth for a bed, and little beside the canopy of heai en for a blanket, had a hard time of it. Some crept under the waggons in the hope of finding that shelter which they sought in vain, while others sat coweri...
