NEWS OF THE WEEK. The address of Mr. Robert Greenwell to thu .ratepayers who are called upon this day to exorcise their right to vote at an election of a member to serve on the Road Board, will be found in our advertising columns. The views entertained by Mr. Greenwell should at least secure the cordial approval of the ratepayers, and we are quite sure that he will be sincere and competent in carrying them out if opportunity is afforded him. Each candidate has been quietly 'gathering his forces during the past week, and doubtless a close contest will take place. The annual soiree and concert in aid of the funds of the Pyrooete School, which was to have been held on Wednesday next, has been obliged to be postponed until the Wednesday following, the 22nd instant. It is scarcely necessary to urge upon those interested in the School to attend, for the pleasant remembrance they must have of the last annual gathering will make them eager to participate in this one.

SATURDAY, MlAY 11, 1867. OUR readers are aware that an agitation is in progress for the construction-or, at least, proclamation-of a -road to Blackwood from Gisborne. It appears that, for years past, it has been perfectly well known to many that such a road would place Blackwood nearer Melbourne by many miles than it has hitherto been by either theroad vid Bacchus Marsh or that vid Kyneton, yet this know ledge has never been put to its proper use, owing principally to the apathy of the Gis borne people. We are informed that, many years ago, a respected resident of that town ship, Mr. ROBERTSON, Of Wooling, saw that Blackwood could be approached from the metropolis by way of Gisborne much easier and more speedily than by any other route; and he made known his opinions at the time, but nothing appears to have been done to wards opening such a road, except the offering of a reward to the first man who should take a dray to Blackwood direct from Gisborne, which reward was claimed and aw...

Kenny, Seocretary of the Club, read the following papeor:- "I havo hoard it said in the old country that a man who makes two blades of grass grow whore only one had been, is a bone factor to his country. I will make a feeble attempt to show practically that such a thing could be done here cheaper, and with better returns than in England. In England farming is carried on on the most scientifio and expensive scale of any nation, with one exception--cheap labour. The country, being of a low wot nature, is covered with underground drains like a chess-board, from one end of the country to the other, which is a most expensive affair. Every manuro, from the farming dung to the last chemical in. vointion, is applied to the land to make it yield profitably. In fact, the English farmer leoaves nothing undone that theory or practice can invent to make his farm pay. In ...
