•LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ■ Man found Dead.—On the 1st inst., a' Mr. Brown of Stratford, (by trade a sawyer,) was found dead upontiie plain, a short; distance from Sale, deceased had several bruises upon his face, which, at first, excited some suspicion that foul play had been used; but the evidence given at the inquest went to show that his death was the result of accident. It appears Brown had been to Sale to release some horses from the Pound, and on his way to Stratford was seen by a man in the employ of B. A. Cuninghame, Esq., to come in contact with the bough of a tree, which at once threw him from his horse; the man saw him in his saddle again, and left him with a caution to be careful; but the unfortunate man paid little regard to the council, for he was found dead next morning, with his neck dislocated. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death. Electoral List.—It appears we have on the Electoral List 284 names for the Assembly, and 46 for the Council.

CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Sir,—1 observe in your issue of the 20th, June, , a letter signed a " .Voice from the People," purporting', I presume, to be an answer to mine, which appeared some time since. After perusing it, I conceived it unworthy of notice, as it did not attempt to disprove a single position I put forward relative to Mr. lung's political career; but in order that the writer may not remain in such profound ignorance of human natiu'e\x=req-\ for he seems unable to draw a line of de, markation between public and private character,rmay I beg1 tlie favor of your insertion of the following' few remarks for liis edification. He appears to be quite unconscious that there are such anomalous creatures in the world, as men possessing' many and high " social and moral virtues," and yet guilty of the most glaring- political inconsistencies. He gives me credit for a "laudable desire" to tell the truth in bearing' testimony to Mr. King's private worth,...

Gipps and Guardian, Friday, 18th July, 1856. SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 18 July 1856
&lt;29ti)i)!3 &£intf ^tiarJytan, Friday, 18th July, 1856. SPECIAL SURVEYS. In the dark ages of governments and trading, when neither the principles of governing, nor the principles of trading were-well understood, or understood at all as tlioy are in our days, it was common for individuals and companies to obtain charters, which gave them the monopoly of the traffic in certain articles, or the monopoly of the trade of a whole country. Such was the case with the East India Company and the tea trade. And in, Great Britain's early attempts at colonization she granted monopolies equally impolitic,, and equally injurious to the progress and prosperity of the colonies, and also to her own prosperity. Such were the monopolies of the land in the colonies of North America, some of the charters and patents for which are a hone of contention between the owners and the people of the United States to this day. It is only about, five or six years since the State or New York brough...

It appears she was shot to death in broad day, while walking with her nephew in her own grounds, by two ruffians, dressed as females, with blackened and veiled faces. The Daily News of the 11th April, contains the following biographical sketch- of the murdered lady — : 1* There is hardly to be found, perhaps, in'the voluminous varieties of French romance a story more full of strange and stavtling vicissitudes than that which the life of Sarah Kelly might supply. .
