TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

TO CORRESPONDENTS. As there seems to be some misapprehension on the point, we may state that The Austral' asian passes through the Post-office for the usual newspaper rate of one penny. Some copies of the first number were printed on paper which exceeded the weight prescribed by the Postal Act—five ots. Lighter paper is now used, and the postage fee, we repent, is one penny. Correspondents in Tasmania suggest that wc should publish lists of sheep-stations for sale or lease in this and the neighbouring colonics, as a matter in which many of the Tasmanian readers of The Attitralasinn take great interest. It is obvious tliat no news paper can supply the information desired. It is for station-owners, or their agents, to let the fact be known, in the usual manner, when they desire to sell their runs. "J. M. W.," Sandhurst, had better apply to the Governor of Melbourne Gaol. " Anxious."—We are unable to supply the information required. "J. K.'s" second letter arrived too late for the with...

The Australasian. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

Siljt^Hstralasiait. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 186*. If the weather had been more favour able, the catUe show last week would have passed off fully as well aa could have been anticipated. It was not to be expected that any unusual amount of competition would be caused by the offer of extra or special prises so short a time before hand ; and the delay was prejudicial in many respects, as the end of October is too late in the spring, especially for sheep and horses. Thus, aa a national show the attempt was a failure, though looking upon it as merely, as in fact it was, an ordinary annual exhibition under the auspices of the Fort Philip Farmers' Society, there is no reason for regret or complaint If deficiencies were to be noticed in some departments, there was improvement enough in others to more than make up for these, and sus tain the character of our metropolitan shows as by far the best held in the Australian colonies. But reverting to the salient points of those classes not touched on...

ROBERTS AND LAMB AT BILLIARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

ROBERTS AND T.AMR AT BILLIARDS. Roberts, the champion billiardplayer of the world, has now been before os some time— longenougb to let ns judge pretty accurately of his general abilities, though, indeed, authen ticated records are extant to prove him to have far transcended, what we have seen here. On hie first appearance he matched himself against onr beat colonial player, Lamb, giving him 400 points. His victory was easy, and was repeated more, than once; bnt just be fore his departure from Melbourne he played a concluding match, giving 600 points—half the game. This ended in his defeat, after a remarkable ran of ill-luck. It was believed that the champion was a little " out of form" that night, so no great stress was laid on his failure; but, pt any rate, when the two met again on the old terms—Lamb receiving 403 points ont of the 1,000—on Tuesday evening last, at the Albion Hotel, the match exerted more than usual interest; and the place was crowded to excess with spectators.

LAKE MOIRA FISHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

LAKE MOIRA FISHINGS. Although the enterprise of the steam coasting bade is making the fishmarkct acquainted from time to time with new varieties of the food which the waters furnish, it is doubtful whether any of the later introductions are superior to our old friends, the perch ana cod of the Murray. The former is not supplied in any quantity, bntthe latter abounds, and —the opinion of His Excellency Sir Charles Darling to the contrary, notwith standing—the majority of fish-eaten will give it the palm even over the perch of Corner Inlet. Nicely boiled, and with the accompaniment of a well-prepared sauce of the usual kind, Hurray cod is a dish which would have delighted the heart of Long Tom Coffin, devotee as he was of cod and cabbage, and to which even an Ayrshire man could not,deny the right to contest with haggis the merit of the longest grace. Altogether different from its northern namesake in matters of habi- { tation and food—dwelling in muddy waters in place of the free salt...

NOTES ON THE FAUNA OF VICTORIA, WITH THE AUSTRALIAN ALLIANCES. 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

NOTES ON THE FAUNA OF VICTORIA, WITH THE AUS TRALIAN ALLIANCES. In (be hope of promoting the study of the natural history of our colony, and of enlist* fng a corps of correspondents throughout the country in the observation and record of j facts illustrative of oar native animals and' their habits, we purpose, from time to time, to give annotated lists of the species which have been described or noticed by natural ists. If the natural history of Victoria is still undigested, and it remains for science to essay for the Fauna what has been already so well done for the Flora of the golden colony, we are not without copious mats rials, scattered throughout a variety of publi cations, but not readily accessible to the general body of readers. Not to name the various Transactions of the learned societies of Europe, which contain memoirs and other occasional notices of species in the Australian animal kingdom, we have works of great artistic splendour and scientific ability. Foremost in th...
