ADVERTISEMENTS. moderate compensation should be made him for the loss of it and the improvements which he may have made; this would justify the country in demanding; a -higher rate of rent than could otherwise be claimed. In arriving1 at a rate of rent to bo levied from these lands it must not be forgotten; that they-'differ'widely in their grazing capabilities, for while two runs are assessed as capa ble|of.feeding,-a .similar number of stock, one of them'will fatten the stock and enable the holder to paya high'rent, while the other will only keep the stock in store condition, and the owner will have ,to-sell' his stock ;at. store prices and can therefore only nav a low rent. The revenue derivable from these waste lands, the increase' of animal1 food, and the increased product of wool are-the main points to be kept in view, and to put the tenant in a position that he can lay out money andimprove the country.by enclosing it, will alone produce the desired result. - ' With regard'to ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 13 June 1856

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Opening of Ta'rraville Church. —On Sunday last was opened the first church erected in Gipps Lnnd, a conclu sion not arrived at without mnny clelavs and disappointments. The funds requisite for the purpose were, we believe, obtained some years ago, and contracts entered in to for the erection .of a brick building1, but some delay occurring', the arrangements | then made fell to the ground, through tlie rush to the Victoria Gold Fields, which drew almost every laborer in the district to Bendigo or Forest Creek. The conse quent rise in the price of labor and mate rials, rendered it necessary to abandon the original plan, and it was decided to erect tlie building- of wood. The design is neat and appropriate, and reflects credit on the skill and taste of tlie Architect, Mr. Pettit. The Church is calculated to accommodate about 180 persons. At the morning ser vice the attendance was a full one, every sea*, being occupied. An Harmonium of sufficient power well supplied ...

The- want of some regulation for the proper apportionment of ftinds for local improvements, and of immigrants brought to this country at the public expense, is a serious evil and one to which your representative should draw the attention of the Legislative Assemblv.

MONSTER STEAM SHIP. In the Guardian of April 25, we inserted a description of tliis wonderful ship; and we take the following account of a more recent inspection from the Morning Chroni cle, believing- that every "bit of information respecting this marvellous piece of mechan ism will be considered of the deepest im portance by every one who feels the least interest in the progress of rapid communi cation between different and distant parts of the world :— From a personal inspection of this " Mis tress of the Seas," we learn some curious and intei'esting particulars regarding her construction and capacities. She is built entirely of iron, in the shape of plates, securely fastened together by rivets, the number of the latter of which, when she is completed, will be 3,000,000. She has a double side, fore and aft, all the way up to within a few feet of the taffrail. She has also double decks.

LATER ENGLISH AND EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. English news up to the 10th March has been received, from which we learn that the Peace Conference had met for the sixth time, but not a breath of their proceedings is allowed to transpire. The Empress of the French had not been confined, nor was that event looked for till between the 15th and 25th March. Orders had been issued for the renewal of the blockade in the Baltic. Every thing- else is mere rumor. Covent Garden Theatre, London was totally destroyed by ,'fire on Wednesday morning, 6th March. It is said that one boy and one girl are missing, and there were a number of very narrow escapes. The building cost £150,000 in 1808. Mr. John Sadleir, M.P. has committed suicide by takings large dose of the essential oil of bitter almonds. He had been guilty of the most diabolical frauds and forgeries, which, are of unparalleled magnitude, amounting to something like a million sterling.

MELBOURNE. Three men named Burnett, Weir, and Smith have been committed for trial on the evidence of one Williams, an approver, for highway robbery under arms, between Avoca and New Bendigo, in April, 1855. ; Francis Bonnell, William Wright, and Samuel Matthews, said to be farmers, are committed to take their trial for cattle stealing- near the river Exe, on the road to Melbourne. John Edwards, a Welshman, and by trade a mason, has been committed on a Coroner's warrant, to take his trial for the wilful murder of his wife, which he effec-. ted by kicking her in the abdomen in a brutal manner, she being in an advanced state of pregnancy at the time. The diabolical act was perpetrated on Sunday night, the 1st of June, in a friend's house at Prahran, and the immediate cause of it, was drunkenness in both husband and wife At the usual half-yearly meeting of the Melbourne and Hobson's Bay Railway Company, on the 3rd inst., the report of the directors represented the Company to be in a flo...

With a laudable desire to preface his letter, by telling- the truth, he informs the public of the fact (patent to all) that Mr. King- has long- held a high place in the estimation' of the inhabitants of this district for his moral' and social virtues; lie joins most cordially in conceding what he knows it would be vain to deny,, that, in his magisterial capacity, Mr. King's decisions were invariably characterised by justice.

' •The Peace Conference had held its twelfth sitting, but its deliberations are kept a profound secret. The declaration of peace was hourly expected. The Emperor of the Trench, in his reply to the address of. the Legislative Assembly on the birth of an heir, alluded to the "peace under preparation •" and every circumstance that transpires confirms the belief that by this time the terms of peace have • beeri prepared and ratified.
