Frozen Meat Schemes and Politics. TO THE EDITOR OF TUB WABWICK ABGUS. RIB,-I enclose for your perusal a clipping from the Taoicoomba Chronicic, which criti cises the hnppy experiment bo admirably Carried out anaer the auspices of Messrs. M'llwraith, M'Eochern and Co., in so un generous nod narrow a style, that I would ask you to take some notice of it. I hare at tended the reading room at Brisbane, and hare watched the expressions of the Press bearing upon the Strathleven meat experi ments, and every newspaper I have looked at -your Warwick ones included-have been jubilant over the success of those experiments, and in none of them do I find so gross a mis-construction placed on the experiments as will be found in the paragraph I enclose you. In a' most illiberal vein, and driving his poisonous assegai into Mr. M'llwraith and Mr. M'Eachern, the unkind writer now seeks to detract from the fair name of an old estab lished firm, of good repute, be it remembered, by suggesting that this ...

Permit me to re-limn a sentence or&lt;twb in proof'of the fact that we hare a local Bombastes, who is quite on u par with the voritablo original in point of instinetivc valor. Now we nil know that .miitlier Mr. Cleevc, nor the oUier olGcers of the New South Wales Bunk, arc permitted to communicate with newspapers un-ofliciully; and I presume nobody knows that bettev than the editor of the Ezamincr. So forthwith he challenges him to a fight which is to he all on one side, thus: The Bantah : Can you fight, SirP The BANKEB : Oh yes, a hurricane, if at liberty; but, don't you see, bombastic friend, my hands are firmly tied. Tbe BANTAM : I thought it was such like. Then come on. And forthwith we are treated to a rather one sided demonstration of bravery on the part of the diminutive literary bird ...
