Friends of Mr Andrew Dawson will be pleased to learn that he is progressing very favorably since tke bad accident he suffered last Wednesday. The temperance party throughout the colony are bestirring themselves m placing voters upon the roll m view of the forthcoming general election. [ A woman was travelling m Sydney by the Waverley tram, and on arrival at the Darlinghurst stopping-place the guard requested Senior-sergeant Hughes to take the woman's name and address, as she did not pay her fare, whereupon the woman, who was apparently under the influence of liquor, became abusive, and had to be ejected from the tram. As the tram started off she lost her balance and fell between two carriages, the wheels of one of which passed over her, cutting her body fearfully, and causing almost instantaneous death. The remains were picked up and conveyed to the South Sydney Morgue. Deceased, aged 60, was a married woman, and her husband residta somewhere m Queensland.

It needs no comment: — ••Mr John Loveday, of the Bulli Mountain, writes to us that after suffering for four years with acute gravel, he has experienccfl almost complete relief by using Sander and Sonse Eucalyptic Extract. He says:—" Seeing th% said Extract advertised m the ' Illawarr' Mercury,' his intense suffering induced him to obtain a bottle of the medicine from Mr Hosking, chemist, of this town, and that the use of it gave him great relief at once. He sbates that between 10th March inst., when he obtained the first bottle of the extract, and the 19th, the use of that medicine continued to afford him relief, to which he had, been a stranger for four years. Mr Loveday writes also that he has found the Eucalypti Extract % cure for rheumatism as well as gravel. He requests us to publish this information through the ' Mercury.' We have much pleasure m complying with Mr Loveday's request, whose word cannot be doubted, and who can have no object m view other than a pure desire to benent suffering humanity."—(Ad vt.) 2
