The house is now in full trade and doing a good business, and to any person of business habits seeking a first-class house and premises as an hotel would unquestionably lead to a comfortable competency.

The house contains, in addition to a large bar and spacious taproom, two parlours, seven bedrooms ; a spacious hall goes through the centre from the front entrance to the kitchen and store room, which is detached. The house is 60 feet long, a verandah 8 feet wide and flagged, runs the whole length ; the roof is shingled and waterproof.
The out-buildings consist of a six-stall stable, horse-box, and coachhouse, in excellent repair, and a dry loft, capable of containing twelve tons of hay ; there is also a large shed, stock-yard, piggery and fowl-house ; there is also a kitchen garden of about an acre, well stocked with fruit trees; a cultivation paddock of an acre, now under cultivation; also a grass paddock. Adjoining is a brick yard, fronting the main road with a good slab hut thereon. The whole is securely fenced in with a substantial three-railed split fence, and are all subdivided with the same.
There is also a blacksmith's shop erected on the premises, and fronting the road in which a very good trade has for a number of years been carried on, and is alone a competency for an industrious man carrying on the trade, it being a good stand both for agricultural and a road-side business. The whole is about four acres, more or less. Possession can be given at anytime, as may be agreed on, and all information and further particulars can be obtained, either by letter or personally, from the proprietor, on the premises, who will treat with intending purchasers on liberal terms.

To tile Editor of the Australasian Chronicle.
L R,.-Allow us through bho medium
of your journal to express ourgratitude for the
kindness evinced by the Captain and Doctor of the
Resource to the Emigrants during the voyage. The
sttention of these gentlemen to the comfort of each
individual has been unremitted throughout, and de
licacies have been furnished the sick from the table
of the Captain in'the shape of puddings, fowls, &c.
By the strict attention of thi Doctor we escaped the
dreadful consequences of fever with which we were
at one time tirreatened; le at all times was willing
to attend the humblest individual on board, either
by day or night, and our number has been increased
by two (with only one death, an infant) since our
departure from our native land. The stores furnished
us have been excellent, and we feel convinced that
everything has been done which could relieve the
monotony of a long and tedious-voyage
