We (Port Denison Times) have heard before of the existence, in the country around Mount Dryander and Crystalbrook, of an animal answering somewhat to the description of the gorilla, and of which the black fellows are said to be greatly afraid.
We have hitherto paid but little attention to these rumours, considering that little if any reliance was to be placed on them. Lately, however, we have been informed on the authority of a gentleman residing at Crystalbrook that two of these creatures have been seen.
It would be a matter of considerable importance from a scientific point of view to know that this gentleman has not been mistaken, and if possible to capture one of these animals.
