THE BATHURST BURR. The journal of the Bureau of Agriculture Bays:-Bathmat,-* The City of the Plaina/* in New South Wales, has acquired the igno minious honor of having its name attached to one of the most noxious weeds known. It is a lasting memorial to carelessness, indo lence or ignorance (or all th iee of these characteristics together} of i's inhabitants for allowing the plant to spread arter it appeared first in their neighborhood. This occurred more than 20 years ago. Since then it has spread to many places in Kew South Wales and into Victoria from this centre.

Greek bands are following the Turkish army and plundering. London, Thursday, 6.30 a.m. The ambassadors of the Powers are urging npon the Sultan the granting of an immediate truce, but the Sultan has not yet replied.
