A gentleman arrived in this city by one of the Union Company's steamers recently, and giving his luggage to the hotel porter, he went to view some of the sights of the Empire city. He had not gone far when he met a gentleman who had just come from the Waiararapa. The conversation turnrd to a description of the country surrounding Wellington, and the rural .settlor was heard to say, ' Well, look'e mister, if you leave this city and go inland, don't go near the foity-mile bush, because (hat place is swarm ing with mosqiiitos.'

THIS AND THAT. [by stranger.] Complimentaby. — At a concert held a few evenings ago in a town not far from Blayney, the chairman in his closing remarks was actually kind enough to thank the audience for their respectable behaviour, and also to intimate his willingness to take the chair at any future concert.

BREAKING UP OF THE DROUGHT IN CARCOAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 3 June 1882

BREAKING UP OF THE DRO0GHT N/ IN OARCOAR, 'the long looked for hoped for and prayed for rain has come at last, and where there were a few days ago clouds of dust there are now oceans of mud, but variety is always charming. The various domestic animals generally known as cows will now have a feeble chance of surviving this winter, they are mostly in a semi-transparent state, indeed, if one of them turns edge ways to wards the spectator they become invisible so attenuated are they. They produce on an average two tea spoons full of milk each, and are doubtless a source of great comfort to their owners. At this festive time of the year one can get no butter, eggs, milk or fruit either for love or money, but must live on in the joyful hope of a glorious time next summer. Riding parties are at this time a tradition of the past as the various ' mokes ' are merely a frame work. I saw a spirited looking animal of the equine genius feebly looking for something to cat in the Church yard the ot...

TEERIBLE EFFECTS OF TSE »R0U«HT. The ' Australasian' Ktys : — The accounts of the drought in the Dubbo district of Hew South Wales ate -truly awful. There is in this north-wffit region of the colony a large tract of country which has not been reached, it would seem, l-y the recent raiDs, although in some parts not fur away feed and water are plenty. Some of the instances related supply a too graphic idea of the cruel sufferings which livestock have endured in this severely visited region, Thus we are told that on tho Bogan, out of 7,000 lambing ewes, the increase saved was one Limb. On some stations on the Macgnarie, which are renowned for their fattening pastures, not a bit of meat is to be obtained.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 3 June 1882

'We look upon the future advancement of this district as assured. At no time in the' past has the outlook been so encouraging, especially in regard to tbe mining industry. Hitherto in New South Wales the industry of gold-mining has been looked upon as a mere transitory one. Goldfields have been opened here and there, worked for a few months or perhaps years and then deserted. But the pioneer miners hare always left these places with the surrounding country settled by an industrious grazing or farming population. For * this the miner deserves well of the colony as the real pioneer of settlement, and no inducement which the Government can offer for new discoveries is too great when the settlement of the people upon the hind is the result of such discoveries. It is many years since gold was found in this district, and the inevitable settlement, fol lowed ; but unlike most kindred districts the miner still sticks to it, and his prospects are brighter now than ever. Mining has always bee...
