Extracts. Owl v. Snake. — A friend passing through the wood in the vicinity of Millodgeville, Georgia, a few days sjnee, met an owl of the largest descrip tion on the road. On his approach, it made no effort to escape him. ; nothing was visible to the eye to prevent its doing so. Struck by the anomaly ho determined on a close inspection. Having touched it with a switch,' the owl made an effort to fly, which developed under its feathers a snake twined round its wings.

THE VALE CREEK BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 April 1850

THE VALE CREEK BRIDGE. The work of the new bridge across the Vale Creek 13 fast approaching completion, and the manner in which it is performed.does credit to the contractor. It is perhaps not generally known amongst the town's-people that when the work immediately connected with the bridge itself is finished, neither government nor the contractor has anything1 more to do with it, A certain sum was placed upon the estimates for the construction of a bridge, and that sum is already expended. The approaches on both sides are several feet below the level of the bed of the bridge, and there will, therefore, require to be a large quantity of earth removed thither to raise them to the requisite level. The expense of this work will have to be borne by the town's-.peoplo, unless they make up their minds that the bridge is to serve the purpose of a mere ornament. Any thing in the shape of rates or taxation is discounten anced ; it consequently follows that private contri bution has to bo.ext...

"THE RIVER MURRAY LEAGUE." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 April 1850

'THE RIVER MURRAY LEAGUE.' {From the Adelaide Observer.) Wb feel no little gratification in calling at tention to the spirit-stirring appeal of Mr. Robert Winter Beddome, which appears to day in our advertising columns. The navi gation of the Murray is a subject which has often employed our thoughts and our pen, and we reioice in the persuasion that the reproach of negligence and apathy, which (in this important particular) has long been attached to the colonists, is now about to be removed by some decisive .measures in the colony and certain practical movements by the friends of South Australia in England. A few months ago, ths navigable waters which' penetrated the solitudes of Upper California. were as imperfectly known ^o the new, settlers as the Murray and its tribu taries ara to ours ; but, the;, '' go-ahead' A mericftns have already succeeded io pre senting to us, upon the inland water*' of California, a characteristic lesson, by promptly, energetically, and successfully open...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 April 1850

miscellaneous Extracts. London by Day. — The city of London, within the walls, occupies a space of only 370 acres, and is but the one hundred and fortieth part of the ?extent covered by the whole metropolis. Never theless it is the parent of a mass of united arid far spreading tenements, stretching from Hammer . smith to Blackwall, from Holloway to Caraberwell. A century ago, according to Maitland, the metro polis had drawn into its vortex one city, one borough, and forty-three villages. Despite its vast extent, still its increase continues to be so rapid, that every year further house room has to be provided for twenty thousand persons — so that London increases annually by the addition of a town of considerable size. At all times there are 50,000 houses in the course of erection. By the last return the metropolis covered an extent of nearly 45,000 acres, and contained two hundred and sixty thousand houses, occupied by one mil lion eight hundred, and twenty thousand souls, constitu...

Death of the Queen Dowager. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 April 1850

Death of the Queen Dowager. The death of her Majesty the Queen Dowager took place on the 1st December. She had for some time been suffering un der a painful malady. The event was not unexpected, aa it was obvious, from the late rapid progress of the disease, that re covery was hopeless. Her late Majesty was nanst amiable in private life, and was sincerely esteemed by all who were privi leged to enjoy her friendship. Tier Ma jesty, who was eldest daughter of George, Duke of Saxe Meinengen, was born on the 15th of August^ 1792. Her early years passed over without any remarkable event. On the death of the Princess Charlotte several of the sons of King George III. determined to marry, ' and the choice of the Dnke of Clarence fell on the Princess Adelaide, to whom, on the 1 Ith July, 1818, (the Princess being then 26 years of age) he was married. . By the death of the Duke of York his Royal Highness became heir to the throne, which he ascended as William IV. in 1830. On the 8th of Septem...

Time was, when we should iave scorned to soil our fingers with so foul a thing is tallow ; but on the depreciation of wool, fat tself is made to rank next to the very staple of the :ountry : even the very horns, and almost the loofs of our cattle are held in requisition as mar ketable articles ; for ships~'are often part freighted with even the shin bones of our bullocks.

In the report of the London Produce Market of the 17th December, we find the following : — The public wool, sales finished on Saturday night 25,918 bales colonial, and 3378 foreign, offered, and reported sold ; of which 4000 were 'taken by foreigners. There was.a large attendance through out the sale, and prices reached Id. to 2d. , per lb. above those of October. Referring to this very satisfactory result, the Glasgow Daily Mail of the 18th December, under ihe heading of Commercial Intelligence, says :— The Australian and other colonists will be highly pleased with the resuit of last week's wool sales in London. The quantity produced, 25,587 bales, is large ; and the advances on price are the eurrency of the October salei at 2d. per lb., and must be highly satisfactory to importers. „ A scarcity of wool is very likely to be felt. The quantity in first hands- in London is estimated at 5000 to 6000 bale3. The advised parcels not arrived amount to other 50,000 bags...
