THE WEATIISER.--ThO weather COntinueS sultry this week. We are, however, happy to state that we have beeoon favored with a very refreshing rain, which will revive the pasture, and create a demand for dairy cattle. RATHER FORTUNATE.--On Tuesday last, a servant man of Mr. Marks's lost, on the Jamberoo road, £26-one £20 note, one 6£5, and one £1 note-out of his pocket. He made report to the District Con stable, at the same time giving information of three men coming along the road immediately after he lost the nioney. The District Constable then selected one .of throee men described, and went in search.of the lost prize; andby stratagem induced the man which found the money to' acknowledge to where it was. Theoy both then went to the spot wvhere.thb hiddon treastire lay, and, strange to say, it ?avis' lyinig under'a large stone about 100 yards off th? road in Mr??r.'Porrott's paddock. .

The strict order and decorum preserved throughout the examination reflected the highest credit on teacher and pupils, and showed that the discipline to which the children are subjected is both mild' and firm.

DEATH OF MR. ROBERT STEPHENSON, H.P. (A~RuDoeSD FROMS H TI?IsEL) 'The death of Stephouson comes with start ling rapidity upon that of Brunel. Both men of rare genius, and both occupying a.sort of double throne at the head of their profession, they have gone to their rest together. MIr. Stephenson's health had been delicate for about two years, and he complained of failing strength just before his last journey to Norway. In Norway he became very unwell; his liver was so much affected that he hurried home, and when he arrived at Lowestoft he was so weak that he had to be carried from his yacht t? the railway, and thence to his residence in :Gloucester-square, where his malady grew so rapidly as to leave from the first but faint hopes .of his recovery. He had not strength enough to resist the disease, and he gradually sunk, until at length he expired on the morning of the 12th October. If his loss will be felt severely in his profession, it will be still more poignantly felt in his lar...

Mr. W. Hind- marsh was called to the clhair. There was no previous arrangements nidoe; everybody seemed to think ever?boldy elso kneow all about it, so the subject was discussed in a desultory asd conversationnl manner. Tihe particular "grievances" were scarcely alluded to, all tihe attention of the nmeeting being di rected to tile harbor question. On this, unfortulnatcely for the prospect of success, the meeting was very much divided,-somo speaking in favor of the "Boat Harbor,' and the others of Blackhead.

JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859

JAMBEROO. The greater part of the harvest is now, I believe, got in, and with trifling exceptions under a splendid sun- shine. The character of the crops differ remarkably - some being, as I am informed, unusually heavy, while others as I know, are exceedingly meagre. The weather during the past week has been generally sultry, with thunder and slightest showers over and anon. On Tuesday last, was buried, by the Rev. Mr. Smith, in the Anglican burial ground, an infant daughter of Mr. George Wood, junior, who had only survived her birth some two or three days. The child had, however, I am informed, been baptised privately by the rev. gentleman, by the name of Anne. However losses of this kind may be felt by parents, an uninterested person is strongly re- minded by such events, of the pathetic eloquence of those lines of Byron --       " Happy, thrice happy, ne'er to feel the force Of anger; pride, shame, hate, revenge, remorse, &c.
