The province of New Brunswick, which issued its own stamps before joining the Canadian confederation, is renowned for two postal events. On Sept. 6, 1851, New Brunswick issued its first stamps, in the values of 3 pence, 6 pence and 1 shilling. The stamps were diamond-shaped and depicted the royal crown of Britain surrounded by roses, a shamrock and a thistle - the heraldic flowers of England, Ireland and Scotland. The stamps were in regular use until 1854, when the letter rate to Britain was reduced from 1 shilling, 3 pence to 7 1/2 pence.

It's a bit of a drive to New Brunswick, but The Frog and the Peach is such a splendid place that it's worth the effort. Open four years, the charming restaurant offers a remarkably inventive and beautifully executed cuisine, although it is expensive enough to consider taking out a second mortgage before you go; still, it is perfect for special occasions. The relatively small dining rooms are decorated all in white - white brick walls and woodworking, white utility pipes, white tablecloths and napkins and candles on the tables.

A report on New Jersey gaming that reimagines Atlantic City doesn't look to Las Vegas or New York for inspiration. It looks to one of its own: New Brunswick. The authors of the report say the 35-year transformation of the small central New Jersey city, the home of Rutgers University, offers a model for turning around the struggling Shore resort. In the mid-1970s, pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson created a process for redevelopment through public-private partnerships - most significantly, through a tax-exempt development company specifically for New Brunswick.

For more than five hours, I had cast with my fly rod into the river - casting as a cold drizzle soaked my hands and neck, casting as a brisk wind spun the anchored canoe from side to side, casting as my back and shoulders stiffened, casting as I glumly realized that I had skied in warmer weather than this. Then something happened that instantly made everything worth it. A splash shot up from where my silvery fly was drifting downstream. On what must have been my millionth cast, my reel started spinning madly, the line tearing out toward the disturbance in the water.

This is my kind of bass fishing. With few if any other boats on the St. Croix River, roaring engines and sophisticated electronics are conspicuous by their absence. The only competition is between you and the fish. It was here, 27 years before, that I learned to fully appreciate the fighting qualities of the smallmouth bass. I've caught a lot of them in a lot of places since, but it is still New Brunswick and smallmouth in my word- association game. So it was a long-delayed sentimental journey I undertook, combining a fishing trip to three separate spots with a family vacation.

A man wanted in a string of sexual assaults in New Brunswick, N.J., bears some striking similarities in description and demeanor to the man who raped two women in Fairmount Park, killing one of them, Philadelphia police said yesterday. The six New Brunswick attacks, starting Sept. 20, 2001, have been linked through DNA. The two attacks in Fairmount Park also were connected through DNA. Police had not, by last night, begun comparing the DNA to determine whether all eight cases were related.

Pleasantville enjoyed its best outside-shooting game of the Group 2 boys' basketball tournament last night, and the results were predictable. The Greyhounds rolled to a 97-61 victory over Central Jersey champion New Brunswick in a state Group 2 semifinal game at Manalapan High. Pleasantville (28-0) will play Boonton on Sunday at Rutgers for the state title. Boonton beat Pascack Hills, 53-43, in the other state semifinal game last night. It will be the Greyhounds' first trip to the finals since 1979, when they lost to Orange.

We are knee-deep in bathtub-warm salt water. We swing nets along the ocean bottom like shortstops scooping up ground balls. We're halfway up the coast of the Canadian province of New Brunswick, a place that is not on many swimmers' radar. Most people think a dip in these waters would be suitable only for polar bears. But people do come to swim at the beaches of Kouchibouguac National Park, heavily promoted as the warmest salt water north of the Virginia shore. (And if you pronounce it "koo-she-BOO-gwack" you might pass as a local.

A Johnson & Johnson diagnostic test that can detect the Ebola virus has been authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for emergency use when there is a suspected outbreak. The test, developed by J&J subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceutica and partner Biocartis NV in Belgium, detects the Ebola strain that caused more than 11,000 deaths in West Africa in 2014. Using only a few drops of blood, the test can distinguish Ebola from other fevers, such as malaria, in 100 minutes, said Janssen medical director Theresa Pattery.

The scheme stretches across the state, from Palmyra to Newark, according to the State Commission of Investigation, which held a three-hour hearing on the matter Wednesday at the...

Bill Moyers, an American journalist who served as press secretary for Lyndon B. Johnson, will be this year's Rutgers-New Brunswick commencement speaker. Rutgers has had a long-standing invitation to have President Obama speak to graduates this year, but with no word from the White House, the university's board of governors approved Moyers as speaker at a meeting Wednesday. Sister Mary Scullion, the head of the Philadelphia-based nonprofit Project HOME, will speak at the Rutgers-Camden commencement along with Raymond Ackerman, a South African businessman whose supermarket chain, Pick n Pay, is now one of the largest in southern Africa.

IF YOU'RE IN Mayfair in May, you might want to look for a new crop of monarch butterflies. They will be part of the Mayfair Monarch Project, an effort to increase the number of monarch butterflies in North America, and spruce up the corridor between Mayfair and Holmesburg. The project is the brainchild of Steve Kanya, who for 24 years has operated a not-so-little shop of critters called the Insectarium in Holmesburg. In a few weeks, Kanya plans to unveil a new Butterfly Rainforest Pavilion inside the 8,000-square-foot warehouse behind his existing business and museum.
