SECOND DAY. -THURSDAY. The weather to-day was a great improvement on that of Wednesday ; and contrary to all precedent, tho middlo day's attondanco was much larger than that of tho first ; the pooplo who had heon foroibly kept at homo by tho rain on the one day, being determined not to be entirely deprived of thoir sport. The races gave great excitement, and although, Phoebe had been beaten for the Great Handioap, she was to-day as good A favourite as oithor Carnation or tho Ida Colt for Tho Shorts. The lattor proved himself a right good miler, able to travel at a great pace, with light weight ; and ho won a fast run raco in a cantor from Phoebe, who was ablo to turn tho tablos on Mr. Town's maro. The raco showed the colt to bo game, as well as fast, for he got a wretched start, and j cut down his horses in tho most determined style.

Hunter River District. [FUOM A COHRESrONDENT.] MAITLAND. My last weok'slottor had not boen posted many hours when I learnt tho melancholy fact that tho fatal spirit accident In East Maitland had resulted lu tho death of another victim. Mrs. Avoy, I rogrot to say, gradually sank until Friday last, when death put an end to hoi* sufferings, which wero of a dreadfully ac ii to and painful nature Tho death of Mrs. ¿voy makes three lives sacrificed by this melancholy accident, lt is much to bo hoped that licensed victuallers throughout tho colony will tako timely warning by this sad casualty, and un der no circumstances ever attempt to mix their liquors after dark. Tho practice, it is said, is by no means an uncommon one, boneo tho danger. The tobacco crop iii tho district of tho Paterson and all round Maitland is roportcd to ¿o a comparative failure ; so much so (hat not a fourth of tho average harvest will bo gathered in. The failure is owing to thc blue mould wblch hos attacked tho pla...
Sofala. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
Sofala. (l'ltOM A COltltEßrONDENT.) Tho weathor horo for tho last low days has beon very unsettled. On Saturday it rained all day and part of tho night, accompanied with high wind and intenso cold, rominding ono of the approach of winter. ' . In mining matters I havo as yot very little'to communicate Messrs. Williams and Westphal aro prospecting a quartz roof, which I believe so far looks well. From a trial crushibg which thoy had somo timo back, tho yield was, on tho whole, satis factory, and goes far to prove that with sufficient capital and tho necessary maehinory, backed by practical oxporienco in quartz-mining, Sofala could bo made to comparo favourably with tho much talked of Trunkey and other quurXz-mining localities. In my next I hope to bo in a position to givo moro general information, and to bo able to communicate that tho enterprising gentlemen above-named will havo been amply rewarded in tho success of their undertaking.

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. FIRST DAY. I Thc thirteenth of these annual contests took place on tho Melbourne Club Ground on Thursday, the 24th February last. Tho first match was played in Mel bourne in 1856, which was won by New South Wales ; in 1857 they wero again successful, but sinco that time they have only won two matches, in 18G3 and 1866. On Ulis occasion neither of tho toams contained the full strength of either colonies. From tho Melbourne team was missed Allan, their left hand bowler, Mullagh, the aboriginal, tho best bat in the colony, and Mr.- Gibson, their: wicket-kecpor. From the New South Wales team, Messrs. J. H. Belcher, Caffyn, Gilbert, and G. H. Gordon, although Twopenny was a groat acquisition as a bowler, of whom, tho Argus says, ho very success fully imitates Wills's throw in bowling. Throughout the day there were not more than 800 or 900 persons on the ground, so that the interest taken in cricket by tho public is rapidly diminishing. The cricket display...

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
SECOND DAY. I Tlie attondanco on the ground was considerably better than on the previous day, but the weather was not so favourable. The afternoon was showery, with occasional gusts of wind. At lunch time the game looked very favourable for New South "Wales, Sheridan and Gregory still being in, and only two wickets for 104. They were at the wickets over two hours, and only one chance was given-that by Gregory, being nearly run out whon he was 7. . Shortly after 12 the game was resumed, Cosstick and "Wills bowling. Off the first five overs there was only ono run got ; then Gregory cut Cosstick for 4, and in the same over repeated the dose. Sheridan then got a single and a drive for 2. Herc Reid went on at Cosstick's ond, and Gregory got a single off his second ball; in the next over he cut him for 4. Sheridan then drove Wills for 4. Wills then tried slows, round arm, but they did not answer. Gordon then tried his slows, but both men still kept on adding to the score. Con way was trie...

Advice to Young Farmers. HOW TO KEEP YOURSELF POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
Advice to Young Farmers. j. HOW TO KEEP YOURSELF POOR. I Not taking a good paper. . jj Keeping no account of home operations. Paying no I attention to the maxim, " a stich in time saves niño," I in regard to the sowing of grain and planting of seeil at the proper season. Leaving tho reapers, ploughs, cultivators, &c., uncovered from tho rain and heat of the sun. More money is lost in this way than most peoplo «aro willing to heliovo. Permitting broken implements to be scattered over the farm until they are irreparable. Ono of the seven wise nren of Greece said only this to prove his sonso-r " The timo to mend tho plow is when tho plow breaks." Attending auction sales, and purchasing all kinds of trumpery, because, in the words of tho vender, tho' | articles are "very cheap." J Allowing fences to remain unrepaired until strang0 | cattle are found grazing in tho paddocks, and bruising 1 the fruit trees. j I Disbelieving tho principle of a.rotation of crops before !

HOW TO GET RICH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
HOW TO GET RICH. Tho secret of gottiiig rich, I take it, lies inamttsholl; Spend less than yon earn." A man who socs to it that he does that, at tho end of ovory week, month, and year, will be sure to get ahead. It was on thia principle that Sally and I begun housekeeping, and overv year has seen a little progress, until wo hávo got things fixed up pretty much to suit us. By a fixed habit we live -within our means, and this makes a rich man in town or in country, no matter what his bank account is. "We didn't have any carpets on the floors . at first, because I thought the land wanted a carpet of manure a great deal the most. But the money that I kept laying out on the land at last began to como back, so that we could have a Brussels carpot without run ning into dobt for it. It was rather a proud day when that roll of carpeting was brought into tho house. Sally had waited for it a dozen years, and every thread of it came out of hor own bones,-as much as if she had j spiinandwoveit a...

Manure Making in Summer. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
Manure Making in Summer. There is no work on fife farm which pays better in any weather than that devoted to increasing tho manure heap. It is desirable in all cases toproteot manuro from the weathor, in sheds or basemonts, if possible. If exposed to sun and rain, in open yards, much of its value! is lost in tho form of volatile gases which pass off in the air, and more yet is leached away, and floats along to road side ditches or brooks and is gone for ever. So much of tho winter's accumulations as romain should bo gathered up and mixed with muck, loam, sod, or leaves, undor cover if possible, and worked over occasionally, to make it fino arid guard against loss by excessive fer mentation. The inolosures where cows aro yarded at night in summer, and tho pig-yard should be plentifully supplied with absorbents of some kind. There is noth ing better than sods. Tho decomposing roots, enriched by liquid and solid excrements, maka a capital ferti lizer for any crop. Stock yards should bo...

Ito reports that all of them had a severe acclimating fever, from which they aro now recovered. They aro now cutting their grain, and after a fow lessons they loamed to wield the cradle adroitly.

They aro all tea-gardeners and tea-makers. They mean to make tea their specialty. Its success admits of no question. Such frosts as we have in our foothills aro beneficial to the plant. Tho best teas always como from plants that have GO days snow and frost. Tho toa plant is a camelia. It bears a fragrant flower. It will probably grow very bushy in tins...
