    To Capitalists, Graziers, Farmers, Stud Owners, and Others.
    710 Acres Of Good FARMING and GRAZING LAND,
    Within Three Miles of the Railway Station, BERWICK.
    STUBBS and TAYLOR are instructed by George Robinson, Esq., to SELL by PUBLIC AUCTION, at their rooms, 81 Collins street west, on Tuesday, 18th December, at twelve o'clock,
    The undermentioned valuable Blocks of land :—
    Lot 1—312 acres, adjoining the property of Mr J. S. White, and near that of Mr O Connor, being described as Portion 60, Parish of Cranbourne.
    It is moderately timbered, has the advantage of a long frontage to the Kardinia Creek, and is well adapted either for the plough or for grazing purposes.
    Lot 2 has an area of 414 acres, is situated a little to the south of Lot 1, and described as Portion 62, parish of Cranbourne. The soil is exccedingly good, undulating, and lightly timbered.
    For a farm or cattle-raising station it is all that could be desired. The property is all fenced, and has erected thereon a good weatherboard house of three rooms, and scullery, outhouses &c.
    The entire property being only 27 miles from town and three miles from Berwick station must commend. It to the favorable notice of intending farmers, as a splendid market is thereby opened up for every description of produce, grain, butter, cheese, meat animals, horses, &c. Before very long it may safely be predicted that Berwick itself will become the centre of a most important and populous district. The Pakenham Ranges will all be covered with the residences of well-to-do townspeople, who will leave their families as much as possible to the enjoyment of the bracing air and picturesque views of this district whilst the breadwinners pursue their necessary avocations in the metropolis. It is not to be wondered at, therefore, that land at Berwick laid out in a large number of half-acre allotments, should have been eagerly bought up at the rate of £100 an acre only a few weeks ago. This speaks volumes both for the soundness of the district and the confidence of the people themselves in their neighbourhood.
    Terms— One-third cash, and balance at four, eight, and twelve months, bearing 7 per cent interest. Solicitor, Verney Cameron, Esq., 32 Collins street east.
    N.B. — It may be mentioned that lot 2 was sold some time ago, but the title being considered defective the sale was cancelled. Since then, however, all difficulties have been removed by the property being brought under the operation of the new Act, and therefore purchasers will now obtain for Title, Real Property Certificate.12
