THE POLICE BOAT AGAIN. . ( To the Editor of tfie Australian.) SIE,-On Saturday 18th October last, in open Court, A. B. Neilson accused me of being the writer of a letter which appeared in your paper some time since about the state of the Police Boat. In 6pite of my denial, corroborated by your own he continued to re-assert,the statement. Well perhaps he could not clearly understand what was being said. "( There is also another letter which appeared in your paper about the Choir at St. Matthews. This too was fathered upon me. As you well know I-wrote neither. I will say more. I neither know the writers, nor did I know the letters were going to be written; nor was J directly or indirectly, con- cerned with them in" any way whatever. The Church Choir does not appear to me to be a fit. subject for criticism in the columns of a newspaper, and even if it were I shall never appear as the critic. The Police Boat however is a public affair, and its management is fairly open to public comment...

"salt i's used the moisture of the air will be more abundantly appropriated and re- tained. About $ o'clock one fine summers morning, I noticed that where the salt had been sown the previous day every grain of salt had attracted to itself the dew and formed on, the surface of the ground a wet spot about the' size of a sixpence, the ground beiug generally dry. Oh our light lands it con- solidates them, and maucs them especially firm and acceptable to the wheat plant whose 6traw will stand firm and erect, although 4^ to 5 feet long. Tt is especially unfavourable to certain weeds, by this consideration: It prevents the ravages of wi rc worm. It is I especially favourable to saline plants, such as mangold, whose ashes contain 50 per cent of salt. I never sow guano, except mixed wit...
