PEDESTKIANISM. A very interesting walking match of seven mileti, for £25 a aide, came off ou Friday afternoon at tho Copenhagen Grouuds, between two young men named William Payne and John M'Kissock. Tho former, the younger and lighter of the two, has teen regarded in the light of a champion walker for aorne time back, he having won several prize matches at various distances, and he allowed his opponent a Btsrt of 250 yards. By those who were unacquainted .with hia previous ieats this seemed rather a heavy disadvantage, and the general opinion was, that tho match would be a very close one. The circumfe rence of the grounds on tho inside edge of the walk | being 400 yards, the winning post was so fixed as to I render it necessary to be passed thirty-one ;imes to make up the seven miles. The first round there was no advantage on either side; on the second M'Kis sock got a little ahead, but in doing this ho seemed to have over-exerted himself slighty, and his opponent from that time kep...

Poet was naturally the " observed of all observers," and around him there was at first such a denue crowd that I with difficulty got a peep at him. He appeared to me, notwithstanding all the mystery and all the Btariling rumors that had been alloat, to he looking iu first-rate fettle, and most persons whom I heard speak on the subject were of opinion that he looked even in better form than when he showed to eo much advantage in Melbourne. His party, however, did not seem to have any great confidence in him. Musidora looked all that could be wished, Mormon ditto; Barwon and Banker also seemed in first-rate form; but ...

DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 18TII FEBRUARY, 1865. WHILE Dr Macadam is still so unaccount ably dilatory in furnishing his analyses of Victorian soils, Mr William Johnson lias handed in to the Rust and Blight Committee of the Board of Agriculture his analyses of special soils (though the samples were placed in his hands only a few months back), and the committee referred to has already issued a preliminary report upom the causes of rust, in which important use is made of Mr John Bon's analyses. The report is a remarkably sensible document, and it has been issued in advance of the more formal report, so that farmers may at once avail themselves of the suggestions it affords. The conclusions ar rived at by the committee are in close accord ance with the views we have repeatedly ex pressed in these columns with regard to the causes of rust and tbo means of avoiding it, which latter, in fact, involve a radical reform in farm practice. It is deemed desirable in all instances that the farmer sho...
