Advertiser) have received photographs of portions of Tambua station, comprising 94,000 acres, and situated about 40 miles west of Cobar, New South Wales. They present views of both sides of wire-netting fenceB erected to keep rabbits oat of the station property. The photo graphs tell better than words can express the wonderful success of the fences. On one side there is an abundance of long grass, bushes, and trees: on the other there is nothing but desolation. An account of a trip by a representative of the " Cobar Herald," who travelled about 120 miles on the station, is also supplied.

They decided to put one of the damps through the Government battery, and came across a piece of Btone weighing 140 ounces, of which 97 ounces proved to be gold.
