A'lafly. residing oa/ an extensive pasture/  .-station; about two hundred miles west of <3ee-  Uoiig, Australia, gives the following partaoa-  iars of an'adventure with that very -singular  tanimal, tho kangaroo, a varmlat as i* common  ������s camrabuiHe",in that region ;  We had fine sport here the other'day in  miming a kangaroo dpwfl on  loot.   They  Qiave been so little disturbed here of late years  tthat they are literally in swarms���������naohs of  from ten to twenty we often see in oar walks,  witbin a mile of home, and. Trip peony, who is  game to the back-bone, will always follow fori  a time, but he is either not fleet enough, or  ������does' a$t understand their way of running,  which is in circles.   However, on the day In  ^question, he started a solitary one about a  anile from borne, where I was walking with  jthetwp dogs, {Tappeany.. and little Rag) and  the children, and ran it down inside the home  Jfence, where it took refuge in the creek (they  always fly,to water)/and.it,kept Tuppenny at  'bay fill we got wp to.them with little Rag,  and then the two dogs gave him no peace, j  "Tuppenny at last got hold of ������is tail, and then  the kangaroo tried to get away, and bo.kept  'bounding about, up the Ml and down again,  '-and:-through:tbe water, Tuppenny never letting go, and 'Rag/snapping at his nose and  paws.   At. last  he   took  to his water-hole  ���������again���������it was not very deep or broad, for  .Tuppenny ��������� still held on.   Then be tried to  ���������catch Rag, anfi drown him, which is what they  always .'do.   They will even catch a man up  In their fore-paws, jump off to* wafer-hole,  and hold him under till he is drowned.   I did  |inot know that at the, tiraejland, .thinking all  jphis enmity was against the dogs, I was really  fpn such terror lest he/ should-cateh Rag, who,  jBpitavery now and then,when he had expended  ^|tehimself, wpuld go and drink within reach of  l^he animal's claws, that! got a Btick and gave  5ta,good blow on the back, when it %egaa to  1tboutul after me, but <eowl<& not como far,^s it  | *waa gotfciiag laint aail frightened,.

As further proof of the ferocity of tbe male  ^kangaroo when driven to extremity, we give  an extract from another letter, from an old  Australian resident:  Speaking of kangaroos, Tshall never forget  what a struggle I once had for life with one  of these creatures. I had been out kangaroo  hunting on my run in Queensland.taking with  me a black boy and a couple of dogs ; and,  after a very fair day's sport, was returning  home, when 1 fell in with an " old man" who  toad escaped us in the morning. I chased  'him, and followed him into a water-hole,  thinking be was pretty well exhausted, there  intending to finish him with the knife I always  carry <in a strap round my waist, for the dogs  ;bad lingered some distance behind with the  'black boy, who also carried my gun $ but no  sooner had I reached him than he sprang upon  *ne and grasped me so tight in Ws two forelegs, effectually pinioning my arms, and rendering , me powerless against bim. Still I  struggled to free myself, hoping every minute  the dogs would be up. Ho succeeded in get-,  ting, me down, still grasping firmly ; while  j with his hind legs he kept flapping backwards  and forwards, close to my head and neck, evidently trying to score-.me with the powerful  claws with which they are provided. It was  not a pleasant sensation, as bad he succeeded  in tearing the jugular vein, of which I was in  terror, it would have-been all over witb me.  Moreover, I was beginning, to feel my strength  failing; when, with* the expediency of despair,  a thought flashed across me that my teeth,  which, thank God, are good and strong, might  prove a formidable . weapon against bim.  Wherewpon I seized bim by the throat, and  held on to him like grim death. In a very  short time, I felt his grasp gradually relax, and  I breathed freer, and was soon enabled'to liberate myself. I had throttled tbe brute, A  fact, unvarnished.     /  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

Thus the hopes of pur people  were centred on the few paying clainis in, th e  Immediate vicinity, ;ahd these,. from;a \ 'yairiety  of causes, were not yielding so much as formerly, y Then the mild weather ^commencing  with a copious fal 1 of rain, prodnced a sudden  freshet, that fbr.'������V: time, threatened .the; destruction of the Bed Rock Drain ; as it was, a  y    number of: claims that looked :tor us likely to  be highly productive, were"entirely stopped,  throwing a number of miners out of employment,- who were not prepared to forego the  earnings that would have. accrued from em-,  ploymeufc.    By this means, our merchants,  traders, and business people^ generally, suffered in their turn, and a period of:financial  pressure ensued.   To a mere observer, and  one who has lived in Cariboo for the last five  ' or six years, there was nothing extraordinary  in this state of affairs ; such seasons of depression are frequent, usually  followed by a  period of excitement, in which buoyancy of  feeling, and great anticipations for the future,  are the ruling sensations ; and we have every  confidence in predicting a like result this  year.   The summer has now fairly set in ; tbe  snow is rapidly disappearing.   The departure  of .prospecting parties from, the creek is of  almost daily occurrence.   If we may judge  from the hopeful bearing of these hardy explorers, we may look for great things before  tbe end of the season, as the fruits of their enterprise.   In the circle  of mining  operations  already known, we hear of new strikes, and  improved production to an extent sufficient to  raise the spirits of the most despondent.   On  Grouse creek, the Heron  company have discovered a continuation of the lead, that is  likely to pay as well as  previously worked.    The  newed confidence in the ultimate richness of  the claims now being prospected, im mediately  below them.     Many of the claims above the  Heron company, where a great deal of labor  has been expended, hitherto without result,  are coming more into favbr.and there is every  probability that this favorite creek will rise  in the estimation of our miners to its former  level.   Lowhee is again giving good promise,  and if,the results of 1 ate op erations are one*  baif as successful as those interested confidently assert, we may again see the rich harvest gathered by Sage-miller and others* fully  equalled, if not excelled.    On Antler, we are  informed great hopes aire entertained that the  long-lost lead has been once more traced to  its original channel, so that a large yield may  soon reach us from that quarter.   New and  extensive surface diggings have been found in  the vicinity of Snow Shoe, where as inucb as  an ounce a day to the hand has been made.  Cedar Creek is still well thought of, and gives  steady remuneration to those engaged on it.  champion, and ilott.and .Otto, of San. Frua-  cisco.

The total value is $4L-  459 57 at New Westminster, and SlS5,S-i7 99  at Victoria. There were imported, at New  Westminster 9805 pounds bacon and hams,  852 bags barley, 6705 pounds butter, GSti  barrels flour, 4339 pounds lard, 345 bushels  potatoes, and other articles in the list, all of  which can be produced in the colony.  A friend of our3 visiting a neighbor's  found him disabled from having a horse step  on his foot. Hobbling out of the stable, the  sufferer explained how it happened. " I was  standing here," said he, "and the horse  brought his foot right down on mine." Our  friend looked at the injured member which  was of the No. 24 pattern, and said, very  quietly. "Well, the horse must step somewhere."  ; Large Boiler.���������The largest boilers ever  built on the Pacific coast were lately turned  out of the machine shop of Coffey & Risdon,  San Francisco.

Respecting  the Russo-American bargain tbe same paper  remarks/" If the Emperor of tlie French is  allowed to purchase the Duchy of Luxembourg, with two hundred and fifty thousand  inhabitants and an impregnable fortress, America imiy fairly claim full liberty to make a  bargain with Russia for a frozen region occupied by the,, bear, wolf, and Arctic fox."  The Times apprehends, as tbe only evil at all  likely to result from the transfer, a diplomatic warfare, long and wearisome, in the  settlement of tbe as yet undefined boundaries  between British Columbia and the uew territory, which may embitter the relations between the two nations.

Several  physicians |  examined the body and pronounced her so.  She bad taken chloroform for her teeth, and  there seemed no possible doubt that the dose  had been a fatal one.    She was buried.!    A  few days since, her relatives, being about to  remove to another state, desired to take the  remains with them.   They opened the coffin  and were horror-stricken to find the corpse  turned over, both hands full of hair, and the  clothing torn: to   shreds.

Firmness is essential to success,: while obstinacy  may plunge'its victim headlong into the abyss  of failure and defeat.   Firmness is a persistency, of action, founded upon a clear and  conscientious conviction as to the right and  wrong of a question.   The obstinate man, on  'the contrary, will not examine the merits of  anything.   He jumps  at a  conclusion,  and  sticks to bis decision  with pertinacity.   The  great beauty of all law, human and divine, is  its inexorable firmness ;   but we all know  what animal is distinguished for its flat, stubborn obstinacy.  W. H.
