ARTHUR RIVER. (BBOM OUB COBBESPCWTDBIfT.} April 28. Want of rain is the universal cry. Ploughs on the majority of farms are lying idle, not entirely owing to the hardness of the land, but the distance that some of the farmers have to cart water or drive th^ir stock to it. Most of tlieir time is spent in this way. Teget&tion is disappearing fast, and stock suffering severely in consequence. Mr C.. A.

The whar whoops'of the excited Hin doo considerably helped the pursued in his 'fight, and when the two were careering along the main gravelled road of the other wise quiet'township the householders in the. vicinity rushed to their doors to witness what they , thought to. he a cavalcade. Him self becoming more and more excited as the chase continued, the . Hindoo filled the air with his hideous. cries after the fleeing one.

DESECRATION OP THE SABBATH. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Would you kindly grant me room in your paper to draw attention to the de moralising effect upon our young men which the curse of puniiehouse gambling and drink ing on Sundays has. On Sundays gambling is carried on in Katanning more so than week days, and an occasional disguised visit of the police' would bear out my statement. The drunken men that roam about the streets are seen by everyone but the police, hence the incessant desecration of the Sabbath. —Yours, etc. CHUROHGOER.
