GOLD FIELDS. (From the Armidalc Express) THE ROCKY RIVER. have given .you vory 'little news of late from this quartor, for the plain reason that tlioro has beon- little lo report. The old fa\ourito spots are losing their wonted celebrity, aud I am sorry to say. th-ir population is di minishing ; although a -number are yet working on Sydney Flat and Sawyer's Gully, still thoy .are com plaining of bad times. Mount Jones is almost desorted, while it is said that tho famous Mount Welsh docs not yield its treasures' very liberally.

LITERARY VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 21 February 1857

LITERARY VARIETIES. A Newlyy Discovered Forkst Race.— In the last number of the Journal of the Bengal Asiatic Society we find a very interesting paper on a newly discovered forest race, crtlled'tho I'uttoons or Juanga, inhabiting certain of the 'tributary mohals of Cuttack. These poor people seem scarcely at all known to the inhabitants of the more favoured districts, and no published account of them has as yet appeared. The information given by Mr. Samuels, the author of the paper, is stated to have been derived from the Pottoon* themselves, and its correctness may we have no doubt, be perfectly relied upon. The people are small in stature, the men little exceeding five feet, the women four. Their mnsen'nr developments are imperfect Ihoir frames, energies and intellects nve singularly weak. *** Tho men,' pays thu writer, ' are far from handsome ; hilt tho jralm of ugliness must be awarded to tho women ; nnd out of forty or fifty, old and young* thore is not one not ugly to tvpulsiv...
