THEIR PASTURES, COPPER MINES, & GOLD FIELDS.
THE AUSTRALIAN HAND BOOK," KA
25 PARK ROW.
ADVERTISEMENT, BY THE AMERICAN PUBLISHERS.
The discovery of immense, and apparently exhaustless goldfields in Australia, has produced a magical effect upon the restless enterprise of our people; and thousands upon thousands are flocking to the far-off Island Continent. Hitherto little has been known in this country of that immense and interesting region -- embracing an area larger than the wholo of Europe — and the importance with which it has become sud. denly invested, has created a general and just desire for reliablo information respecting it.
The sources of such information are not as fully open to American as to English writers; and we have therefore choseu to avail ourselves of a recent, and very full and accurate work from the latter source.
THE THREE COLONIES OF AUSTRALIA, just prepared by Samuel Sidney, Esq., who had access to the most reliable data, furnishes information equally opportune, interesting and authen
almost every topic which may become the subject of legitimate inquiry.
To the emigrant, the work will, it is believed, furnish a safe and full guide ; and, to those desiring information respecting one of the most interesting regions of the globe, abundant sat isfaction.
