DISCOVERIES OF GOLD NEAR GEELONG. The " Geelong Advertiser" thus describes the late " stampede " from Geelong in search of gold:* No sooner had the locality of Mr, Hughes's alleged discovery been announced than a general stampede took .place towards the Dog Rocks. Some who knew the lay of the country'took the Fjansford road, but the great body followed'the cab contain* ing Mr. Hughes and the four members, of committee by the Batesford road* The dis tance. t seven miles and three quarters, is about the same either way for horses and vehicles, but pedestrians can make it shor test by Fyansiord if they cross some enclos< ed paddocks. The people in the neigh* bourhood were in a state of blissful igno rance ol the rush, and their puzzled, half* doubting looks aud expressions when cliaf fingly hailed by the passers-by about going to the diggings were amusing. Farm la. borers leant over the fence to hear the cry; there would be a moment of hesitation^ but a blance at the line of...

Sir,--E^iza Jane in her judgment of my irotiv^, as forme<l by her perusal of my last letter to you, is far too severe. She accuses me of envy, the meanest and most un* worranly vice that ever tenanted a mortil bosom. Sir, she has come too rapidly io conclusion*; with woman's charini»g logic, she has inverted « the doctrine of ther schools and on the prin ciple of abstraction has applied to/the indi vidual that which wasa*sa<ted of'thecollec ive body.

We were so ry tu find that I he damage done to flocks was very extensive, many of the sheep hav. ing died from the cold, and many flocks having got mixed and scattered. On our w »y home from the Plains we parsed ivkole groups of dead sheep ; and it was touching to see in some instances three or four lambs Uing, as it weTe, locked in each others em brace, by the »ides of brush fences; or fallen trees, whither they had cowered in the vain hope < f finding shelter from the pitiless blast. And no wonder though there was a ureal destruction of animal life, for the tempera ture was very low ast ompared with the pre vious days, and.ihe tain fell in torrents for ft-rty eight hour* together.
