AUSTRALIAN DISCOVERERS AND EXPLORERS. DAWPIER, FREEBOOTER AND DAVIGATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Examiner and Times — 1 August 1867
AUSTRALIAN DISCOVERERS AND EXPLORERS. DAW TIER, FREEBOOTEU AND NAVIQATOB. WilHam Dampier, to whom allusion was made in my introductory article, was born in Somer el in 1652. At an early age he went to sea, making his acquaintance with seafaring life on board a Bristol vessel, lie subse quently sailed to the East Indies, and on the 27th December. 1687. reached the mainland of New Holland. The previous voyagers had given but a vague description of this new conti nent ; but Dampier's work, " A Voyage round the World," published in 1691, is so well worthy of perusal that I shall quote a few passages to: show the style of the old mariner. | After describing the soil and vegeta tion, he gives the following account of the natives: " The inhabitants of this country are the miserablest people in the world. The Hodmadods of Monamataoa. though a nasty people, yet for wealth are gentlemen to these, who have ho houses and skin garments, sheep, jwul try and fruits of the earth, ostrich eggs, &...

Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Examiner and Times) [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Examiner and Times — 1 August 1867
Corttsponbtnce. (7*o the Kditor of the Exuminer and Timet) SIR,-1 have read with much pleasure some interesting articles in your jour nal on "Tig Breeding" aud "Dairy Farming" on the Downs. With re gard to the first subject, there is nothing that can be carried on wilh so little expense and trouble, or that will pay belter. I know from experience mat this district is admirably adapted for anything of that sort, and there is ample room on these Downs for carry ing on operations to any extent. If our farmers would turn their attention to this description of produce, there is no doubt they would meet with an un limited demand for their stock, and nothing would be a greater assistance to the small farmer as well as the large, or aid so much in the prosperity of the district. If tbey will only consider toe large amount of money sent out of the colony every year for bacon alone, they will find that though the 0'itlay in commencing this branch _ would be small, and the speculation a safe o...
