I lighted the fire, slung the billy. and awaked the little ones, which caused my-poor wife to.open. her,eyes, .Almost in silence we cut the last loaf of bread as we drank the tea made from the last pinch' in the tin; and shouldering pick and shovel in sadness, I directed my stAps - to the .only pillar I. knew of in Opposum Gully. . . - . . Close I stuck to my work, and bottomed only to discover that no gold was there; I fossicked round only to be more disap pointed. Withmelancholy thoughts I ex amined'the last untouched end of the hole, where, drip, drip, the wdtei was: coming through, andtb break ground was only to let in the daimmed-up sludge. In despair, I sat down, leaning against the side, and lighted my pipe cha...

SANDHURST. ' (From our own Correspo'ndent.) May 263th, 1863.1 The Qiioeb's Birthday-, was kept as a Gnieral-Holidayto-day, and-has?beeincar riedout with great spirit. Nothing occurred to mar the happiness of all the pleasure seekers who visited Sandhurst this day. A slight shower or- two came on about 2 o'clock, and after that the sky cleared, and all went merry as a Marriage Bell.. The Procession, consisting of Mounted Cavah,; Rifle'Corps, Fire Brigade, Cale donian Society, and an immens- concourse of people, formed about 11. o'clock, and proceeded to the Back Creek Cricket Ground, where. the different sports came off at 5 o'clock. They then re-formed and returned. The Illuminations were first-iate..; The most conspicuous were in Pall Mall, a con tiiuous line of jets of gas from the Free mason's to Ashley's Corner. In the centre was the Princess' Theatre, and at each end, the letter A. It then .continued, in like manner, from the Commercial Hotel to the Shamnrock Corner, and at eac...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 28 May 1863
- Either from absence of loyal feeling, or more probably from the paltry fear of losing a day's trade, the storekeepers of.Heathcote refused to close their. establishments on Tuesday. In consequence of this the day was not celebrated with such general good will 's tie occasion demanded. What fes tivities were arranged upon were confined to'one or two cricket and football contests; and the scrambling of a few pounds of lollies amnong the children. At niht somel illuminations were exhibited, including the transparency, spoken of last. week, at Mtdssrs Hall and James's. These were en tered into with remarkable unanimity, for scarcely a window but sent forth a stream of light of some stren?th. "For brilliancy the Victoria hotel wasa fine spectacle: all its windows both on the ground and upper floors being filled with lights. The Heath cote came-next in order of lustre. From its promihent site the-Hospital showed admira-, bly, and also the Camp buildings from a similar advantage of. posi...

If McNicol was so foolish, I dnn tiell him ~hat the Messrs Coster would S.not have been, after having it pointed - out to them.
