J.DATL" O TIZE RE.. JOIL. ANGELL. I.-4----- (BnRIDsED PROM5TiE BriRINoIIAMJOURNAL 8Tlt OCTOrER.). For some time past the venerable John Angell James had manifested symtoms of the wear and tear of years. Indications of physical decaymade themselves felt now aud then, buthis intelect was as clear and vigoros, and his.imagination as firosh and buoyantas it was fifty years ago. Fbr the last ten days proceeding his death he had, how over, become perceptibly more feeble, but his ill ness assumed no very serious aspect though he occasionally suffered greatly. On Sunday morn ing week lie preached at the E'lgbaston. Cbngre gational Chapel, and although the hand of time was evidently tracing dissolution upon him, yet he delivered a discourse marked by all his old eloquence, vigor of thought, and practical piety. There was much that was rcmarkable about' that sermon and tihe preacher thalt day. He left tlhe chapel and never entered' it more, though in the evening he was present as a.hoarer in....

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 31 December 1859
We adveited last weok, both in our leader and in a review to Dr. JxNINS' proposed scheme of education. The agitation caused by his lecture may probably do good; but we feel there: are such fundamental objections to the plan, that it ought not to be, and never will be, =adopted. In addition to those mentioned last week, we object to the principle of applying particular taxes to special uses. And we main tain that if education is to be supported at all by t?e State, such support should come out of the heoral taxes, and -voted to the amount requisite, be it more or less. As we said before, we wish the entire aboli tion of the Tea and Sugar duties; but if re tained, we could never assent to their being alienated for any particular purpose; and we trust New SouthWales will never see the day when a cabinet minister shall be prepared to propose it. Suppose an emergency to arise for the increase of our revenue-for the purpose of our defences, for instance-in what way would it be done so eff...

WOLLONGONG. Last Sunday morning before daylight; some evil dis posed person threw a large stoneno through the window of the lercury oilice. The sash was broken, but other damage done was slilht. Doubtless some ignorant person harboring a maficious grudge against tihe pro prietor of tlhe Ilercury, was the perpetrator of the deed. A reward is offered to anyone who shalligive such infor mation as will lead to the conviction of the party, who we hope will not escape the punishment tlhey deserve. a d It is proposed to alter theo days of publication of the Mercury firom nMonday and Thursday to Tuesday and Friday, and to effect othelr improvemests in connexion with the publication.

I JAMBEROO. Christmas tide is .passing over the region of Jam. beroo, withouthaving -hit5erto revealed anything more remarkable thllan a week of ordinary days, except lthat since Christmas day we have had a more copious fall of rain than had been seen for some months before, and which, exceptinlg perhaps the proprietors of some late crops, must have been as welcome to people in general as Ohristmas itself. It may interest distant friends of tlhe parties to be informed that our neighbors, Messrs. Charles Graham, Lute Clancy, and Thomas Frederick, have, durin_ the present wveek, taken to themselves wives of the daugliters of the land (this or some other), the young ladies being named respectively, as I am informed, Rebecca Nicolls, Mary Banks, and - Ddgeon.

DISTRICT' INTELLIGENCE. (FRo OtRneORESnPoNDeTeTS.) - GERRINGONG. \We were wishing for rain, and we are getting it. The ever kind and all-wise Providence withhold it until the harvest was fairly housed, and then sends it in abun dance. What a change in the earth's carpeting it has made in the course of a few days. When I last wrote the pasture was brocvn, baro, and dusty, rendering the fences at a little distance invisible, from the feed, or rather no feed, being of tihe same hue as the dry posts anld rails. Now they and the stumps, in all their ughli ness, appear in relief against the rich green of the clover sward. The settlers at Broughton Croeek are talking about petitioning the Postmaster-General to establish a branch post-oflice in that locality, habut they are dubious as to the issue, hearing it will only be granted in the town. shlip, which, besides being all in the hands of an indi vidual not a storekeeper, is not a central point. It is certainly nearer than Gerringong, but ...

DBAPTO. The "plentiful scarcity" of news, so pathetically-and paradoxically bewailed by your Jamberoo ?orrespondont a few months back, must also serve as my excuse for the omission of my usual communication for two consecutive weeks. I have no "ingenious attempts at robbery," inor " daring burglaries" to chronicle-we are all too honest for that; no "barbarous and revolting murders', -t-hey are lhappily confined to more civilised districts: no "political or electioneering intelligence"--Haworth and F'Cabo are resting on their laurels; no " enormous cabbages"-the aphis has blighted our hopes of them. Hnaving none of theso interesting circumstances to record, and unfortunaitely not possessing an inmaginationi sufli ciently glowing for their invention, I am reluctantly compelled to wait until the course of events shall produce something worthlly of transmissions to your journal.
