Coal-tar, formerly a troublesome waste of the gas industry, affords us about sixteen distinct yellow colors, about twelve oranges, more than thirty reds, about sixteen blues, seven greens, nine violets, and a number of browns and blacks, besides a mixture of several compounds producing an almost infinite number of shades and tones of color. Over a quarter of a million acres of land have been surveyed in the King country, preparatory to opening that region for settlement. The land is stated to be firstclass, and of splendid quality. A shipment of pheasants has been inade from New Plymouth to Sydney, where they are expected to realise one guinea per brace, that being the price in the Sydney market. The shippers run risk in placing the birds in good condition.
