BOEES BADLY BEATEN. GALLANT BAND OF LEKEGU LAES: During the British reconnais ance north of Dordrecht, 40 of Major Montmorency^ scouts were intercepted by a large Boer force, and cut off from the main column. The scouts dismounted, and took refuge in a donga, or deep ravine, whence they gallantly resisted re peated attacks. The Boers num bered fully 800 men. They shot down all the scouts' noises, but the few Britishers were making a most effective and gallant resistance when the shades of night put a temporary stop to the encounter. With the morning, a force of 115 mounted British irregulars and Gape Police appeared, supported by four pieces of artillery. The Boers refused to continue the fight on the new basis, and re treated towards the north-west, having lost eight men killed and 30 wounded.

FARM AND DAIRY. -* A TRICK OF THE TRADE. Australian growers bf produce sold in Englnnd have often com plained of the " trick of the trade" practised by those who sell the pro duce in the English markets. From a letter written by Mr. Sampson Morgan to the " Kentish Express " oh " Covent Garden Ways," it ap pears that the home producer has just as much cause to complain as the Australian, He says : " Ac cording to some accounts business morality is at a low ebb at Covent Garden. Strange tales and rumours have lately, been afloat, and many of the growers who consign their goods to the market formale do not hesitate to use strong terms in re ference to a section of the dealers." Mr. Morgan visited the market and took close notes of all he saw, and as the Toeults of his experience he says the reports are well founded, and he describes a section of the dealers as a disgrace to the markets they infest. The external marks on packages are obliterated, and ' the samples tampered with almost o...

There was no steamer to bring the people from down the river or from the McDonald River, otherwise there would have been a large gathering, as it was a splen did day for a trip.

At one time there would always be a cricket match on Boxing and New Year's Days ; but now there is no club at all, which is to be regretted, as the...
