It Was During This Stage, And Among The Scrub And Underwood Of The Sandy Hills, That We First Met With Grevillea Pungens (R. Br.), A Shrub From Two To Five Feet High, With Pale-Green Pinnatifid Pungent Leaves, And Racemes Of Red Flowers.

Flagellaria indica, L. was very abundant near the creek; and our bullocks fed heartily upon it:

Particularly in this most wretched country, where the grass was scanty and hard.

Although the days were exceedingly hot, the air immediately before and after sunrise was most agreeable.

Oct. 3. - We travelled about six miles and a half north by west, over a country equally scrubby as that of the preceding stage. The saplings had been killed by a bush fire, and a hurricane, which must have swept over the country some years ago, had broken and uprooted the larger trees, which lay all to the west and north-west. Since then, saplings had sprung up, and, with the remains of the old trees, formed a most impervious scrubby thicket, through which we could move but very slowly. About a mile from our camp, we crossed a salt-water creek nine or ten yards broad. There was some vine brush, with plenty of Flagellarias, growing along its banks. A little farther, we crossed a freshwater creek, which was larger than the preceding. Both appeared to come from some conspicuous ranges, about six or eight miles to the westward. About five miles farther, we encamped on a sandy creek with fine pools of water.
