IRCGURDEN'SCONVERSAZIO E (Byv- ou DAsCI G RE-PORTER.) I don't know w'het?her' am treading ounthehallowed precincts of private life but as I was favored with an elegant note saying, ' Mr Gurden hopes to have the pleasure of seeing Mr - . at the Selection, on Friday I4th at 8 p.m." 1 went, and as it cannot be ex pected that a reporter although dressed in the orthodox swallow tail should be blind or deaf, or insensible to the good the gods provide, so having ate the good cheer and 'drank the generous wine, I feit it would be acting an un worthy par. in not giving as idea of how things can be done in the remote bush. When alighting from my trap I found myself one among many arrivals. The invitations haa been general, that is to say more partaking of a country gaterihg, than confined to a clique or. representing one class. You might meet a similar mixture of classes at a Governors ball. Our gentlemanly host received us on the threshold, and sooni placed us au courant ae la maison. The ho...

CANAlY ISLANdD. (raoa. A cOBdsaP.staa ) June l7th, 1A71. The inhabitants of Canary Island have just had a great boon' conferred on them, in the shape of a mail twice a week from Durham Oz. :There -re also two half time schools pro. ,mi.ed'as soon as the sites are proclaimed, There is at present a school held at Mr Vear's, a selector on the Island. ,Rain was much wanted here, the l.te crops are not showing well ; in some instances the farmers hare had to saw a second time. The grass seems better here than at many other places. There are a great many complaints about sle t res not getting their leases as soon as they would wish. i It is thought by the inhabitants around this locality, that Keang could do with one doctor, and let them have t-e other at Durham Ox, at any rate the w ,nt of a doctor is felt, a very bad case of diptheria having occurred at Dur= ham Ox, the patent having to be taken to Sandhurst, and a great deal more sickness in the neighbourhood has also occurred.

AND SwAt HILL GAZETTE. enDLis ?rn 1 EEIKLT. KERANG, JUNE 2i, r878. : RAILWAY EXTENSION. Is constructing new lines of railway, when done for public and not for party purposes, the object sought 'is to 'ac commodate the greatest. number of inhabitants at the lowest possible cost. This is a good rule to work to, and if it is carried out in a proper manner, casting aside all leanings towar.ds per sonal feelings, cannot fail to be.. pro ductive of good to the community. It would greatly assist the Minister of Railways for the time. being if the -various railway leagues would ;adhere to this rule, and not, as is generally the case, support some particular line be cause they happen.to have property.in that locality.. Instead of assisting the Minister to arrive at a thorough know ledge of the district, their actions go a long way' towards misleading him. Perhaps not .at all times .intentionally, but from taking a jaundiced view of tieir own importance,'they cannot see the wants of others. T...
