WHEEO. (FROM OUH COIIUESPONDBNT.) Tiie winter so far in this district lias been most favouraole for stock. Feed is rather sonca at proa out in many places owing chiellyto over-stocking; which will soon be found to be a great mistake. During tho last twenty-four hours we hud several re freshing showers, quite plenty for this time of tlio year. The wallaby drive advertised in your columns came off at Mr. James Selines'u on Saturday last. The day was rather culd for handling the iron, and tue consequence was that many little fires throwing up a. column of smoke could be seen along tho shooters, lines whore a good toast was indulged in waiting for the drivers to beat in. The first drive was'hold in one of Mr. Shepherd's paddocks, but it turned out a blauk, as not one solitary long-tail made its appearance, a second one was then tried which turned out pretty well, in fact one of the bast during the day, Mr. Thomas Glennan putting together a heap ot eleven in that drive, amongst which wer...

Belmore Square. The city, fathers have begun in earnest to give their attention to this conveniently situated pleasure-ground, several men. being now engaged in pruning the different trees and shrubs, and taking away all rubbish and useless matter.
