But if such should be their objection, I em happy to state that thia seasons trial has been madeon the Downs with carbolic acid, and as yet there is every prospect of the experiment being attended with success. I would advise farmers to watch the result and judge for themselves. Messrs, Archer & Sons, of Earn Creek, I am sure would only be too glad to give any enquirer all the information they are in possession of in reference thereto. The Messrs.

Before enter ing into the merits of the question at issue we must express our disapproba tion of the course the Assembly has seen fit to pursue in adjourning two days merely for the races while such important, business was on hand as that on the paper. Such action savors of trifling with the high position which members of Parliament are believed to occupy and the responsiDiiines en trusted to them in the public interest. Some few weeks since we severely condemned the present Ministry for three leading reasons, — their financial blunders, the want of work for the im migr...
