The colonists of New South Wales are also much indebted to Mr. CUNNINGHAM's exertions for discovering and pointing out new grazing land to those enterprising agriculturists who are spreading their flocks and herds over all parts of that great southern land.


LONGEVITY.—There is at present living in a small cottage within a few doors of the Bladud Spa, Larkhall, Bath, an old woman, named Mary POTTER, aged 106. She has never drank beer or spirits in her life, and has eaten very little animal food. Her principal diet has been bread and milk, tea and vegetables. Her hearing is defective, but her sight and memory are good. She has had a fit within the last fortnight, and is at present unable to walk about, but is cheerful and happy. She is under the care of a daughter nearly 70 years of age, who pays her every attention filial affection can suggest. This necessary care of the daughter precludes her exercise of duties necessary to procure the comforts her aged mother requires, who would be distressed but for the kind attentions of a few friends.—Amongst the pensioners examined at the Leeds Court House, on Wednesday, the 27th of November, was Edward SIMMONS, of that town, aged 104. He served 22 years in the 25th Regiment of Foot, commanded by Lord George LENNOX. He was examined and admitted June 11th, 1792, before the Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital. He entered the army in 1770, and was at the seige of Gibraltar in 1782, and now resides at St. Ann's lane, Leeds.
