Upper Burdekin district ia the month of Ootober, their ultimate destination beiog the new settlement .formed by the Queens land Government at the northernmost point of Cape York, in Torres Straits. After leaving the settled : districts, they will have made for the country lying east of Bnrkennd Wills's farthest, and must have been at no great distance from the spot reached by those explorers.

Although the weather was of a most unpropitions character, and must have been particularly unin viting to them, as they did not seem possessed of a superabundance of necessary apparel to protect them ; yet, as an attempt at punctuality was exercised by these fanatics, and having decided to start on this particu lar day, it would not do to break the rnle, particu larly on such a special occasion as taking their de parture from here.

DISASTROUS FIRE AT RUTHERGLEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 July 1865

DISASTROUS FIRE AT^RTJTHERGLEN. It has become my, lot to have to record the total loss by fire of the Commercial Hotel, belonging to Mr George Cooper, of this place. : The following are the particulars of this disaster :— It seems all the inmates were in bed before twelve o'clock, .on Snnday evening, leaving a email fire in the parlor, which is supposed to have burnt through the bricks .and caught the woodwork between the chimney and the ball room. About four o'clock this morning, while the inmates were in bed, the place burst into flames, and in less than half an hour was levelled to the ground, and, what is worse, Mr Cooper's eldest son, . George, a' fine little fellow, four years of f»ge, was burned to death whilst asleep in his little cot.

LEICHHARDT'S MARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 July 1865

LEICHHARDT'S MARK.   When Mr Hely went but in 1851 to search for Leich- hardt he found at two places trees marked L with the letters XVA cut inside it. The trees so marked he   considered as indicating the sites of two of Leichhardt's camps. The L was reasonably supposed to stand for Leichhardt ; -the XVA is very difficult of explanation. It could not refer to a date, as the letters were re- peated in the two camps. Woods says in his History : — "There is just a chance that the marks may have been made before Leichhardt's time. This surmise,   has some colour from the fact that, when the latter ex- plorer went with Mr Bunce to cross the tract between his former route and that of Mitchell, he found, on the banks of the River Maranoa, a tree marked with the letter L. The following entry in his diary has re-   ference to these marks, and some others quite as inex- plicable,' He writes : — -'September 4. We travelled about four miles s...

The Government adopted two regulations with toe v view of dispersing them— first, that only a portion' of a ran shonld be open for selection ; and '] second, that every seleator should bo required to Pay ;his deposit at the time- of depositing his lot ^ticket. ;' The effect of the former regulation' has been . ?, altogether, favorable. The squatter, being no longerin danger of losing the whole of his run, has ?not the same temptation to resort to evasion. With regard to the latter, it wasithought that the specula tors, having ; to find the money for every medium employed, would find their game up; but it has not worked so favorably in that direction aa was ex pected, whiloit works unfavorably in others. It is, therefore, to be, discontinued. It is the intention...

EXECUTION OF DOTSELAERE FOR THE LATROBE-STREET MURDER.   Peter Dotselaere, the murderer of the unfortunate young woman, Catherine Sarah Jacobs, suffered the extreme penalty of the law, at ten a.m. Thurs- day, 6th inst., at the Central Gaol. Since the sentence, the unhappy man has been sedulously attended by the Rev. D. Lordon, to whose teach- ings he has paid the utmost attention. Dotselaere's demeanor of extreme dejection continued un- altered up to his last moments, and he appeared resigned to his fate. He was accompanied to the drop by the Rev. Dr Bleasdale, who read prayers. Dotselaere appeared to be excessively weak, and as though about to faint; his features were of an ashy hue, and he submitted passively to the process of pinioning. He   made no confession when on the scaffold, nor did he take the slightest notice of any of those present. The white cap having been drawn over his head, the executioner led him to the drop and adjusted the rope; the bol...
