MR HAMRA, AND T'IIE OSPITAL CONCERT. (To the Editor oj the Standard.) " Thlt you have wronged me doth appear in this." Sxn,-Allow me a small space to say a few words in reoly to a long epistle signed " A. G. Moon" in your last issue. I had no inten. tion of saying anything, aut must draw the attention of the public to one or two facts' which I am quite sure no one can gainsay. In conjunction with my brother Charles I have advertised again and again for ladies and gentlemen to join the l)ramatle Club, but the m embers of the " upper crust" have declined tie invitation. We have paid for thle material, and have painted and renovated the Athencunm Hal', not to mention the entire scenery; andl what have we asked P and what received ? Simply nothing I This we It Le done in ortier that others as well al our selves might have a decent place to play in, and surely there can be no great crime in my taking some of the credit to myself, the effusions of A.B. and A.B. the second not. withstandin...

POLICE COURT PROCEEDINGS. (To the Editor pf the Standard.) Sia,-You arp aware that mud thrown on p man's face leaves a mark, which remains there till washed off. This being the case, I trust that you will permit me the use of a little newspaper soap to rub out the black patpl placed on my choek by a paragraph which appeared in your last week's issue in re M'Watr's v Blain. It was clearly and conclusively proved in court that my soi Alfred received a cheque for £15 from the purvey Department for services rendered by him, and that after cashing the said cheque pt the Union Bank, he took up thp promissory note for £6 that had been given by me for the mare in suestion, but which was not to be ponsidered payment until the cash was pro duoed. It was after this that Mr Blain gave the receipt for the animal, which was pro duced in court. Now, if this is not a purchase of the mare by my son with his own money, then I am at a 0oq8 to comprehend the mean log of the word purchase. 01 course I h...

NOT YET. - The hours hung heavily, indeed, the folldwing morning ; but punctually at least, within a quarter of nl hour of :tiilve o'clock-the doctor made his appearance. The interview was not of long dura tion, the doctor having little to coin municae beyond the fact that Esther was completely pro-trated by the acci dent of the lpIuvious evening, of which she appeared to know little or nothing ; and for some days it would be ncessary to keep her perfectly quiet and undia turbed. However, in about a week, the glad tidings reached me that the ice had been broken, that she was aware of my return, and wished to see mie-so, arm-in-arm, my good friend and I set out to make the visit.

WESLEYAN JUBILEE. --I On Tuesday evening a large number of our residents wended their way to the Yea IR ad Schoolhouse, situated about four miles from Alexandra; ar rived there we found a large concourse from all parts of the district, including Gobur, Thornton, nlolesworth, &c.. hav ing come to partake of the good things provided, and to spend one of the most pleasant social gatherings it has been their lot for some time to enjoy. Upon visiting the scene of operations I found three tables crowded with good things under the management of Mes dames Bright, Peters, P. and A. Popple.

I have little more to record ; the presentiment which I felt on this day was verified by Dr Manse on the morrow. My darling I-my first. my only love l-the being for whom I had sacrificed prospects years ago, and for whom I would have sacrificed my very life, was sinking fast ! The change had come, and to an unpractised observer my darling might have been thought better, so much more collected did she seem, but, alas ! it was but the begining of the end.

O SCENE ON THE YLRKA. The disgraceful scene at Wright and Orr' dock, described in 'The Age of Wednesday, was continued yesterday from daylight in the morning until a late hour at night, tho proceedings Sbeing even more exciting than on the previous day. The siege of the dock was resumed shortly after fiur o'clock in the morning, but the employea of the Harbor Trust for a long time appeared unable to determine upon the next offensive notion which should be taken. Eventually, as it appeared impossible to overcome the chain barrier which had been thrown across the dock to prevent the further progress of the Warbawk, the dredge Griper was set to work on the upper wall of the dock, but prior to that the dock men, who pumbered about,.140, had cut away all the gear by which the Warhawk had ". been fastened to the dock.

SAGRICUIjTURAL NOrTES. FARM WORK FOR OCTOBER. 4zuAx&P' LINcoLNE's MONTULY REProT. A} tbh request of several of my corre pbOndente; I have decided to continue tboe pontbly ' Farm Work" series, Summer Green Fodder.-TIhere is a larger demand for sorghum'this season than usu l, and I am at a lose to know why. Ic was atonsively used In our dairies some ten years -incs but it6 was proved most satisfactorily )hat it was not good fodder for dairy stock, on account of its tendency to lay on flesh and fat at the expense of the milking properties. Another objection was, that it, in its green state, had a bitter taste, and unpalatable to cattle after the latter had consumed a smnall portion. There can be little doubt that, of all summer feed, green maize is the best. It is r-lishled at every stage of its growth; it will promote tile secretion of milk; and it will give double tile weight of crop per acre that sorghum will do, and in much less time. The " 90 day" is the best and quickest,...
