Yesterday (Friday) afternoon, about 4 o'clock, a splendid soaking rain set in, and continued until about midnight- If a camp-oren with a crack in its fundament may be considered an adequate catchment, then we can say with certainty that the rainfall for Friday was 60 points alto gether. We can already boast a glass for measuring the rainfall, and nre pleased to state that a proper rain-gauge is now in transit from Perth, having been placed in the hands of the shipping agents below on January 15, nnd this we hope to hare duly established in connection with the local post-office in time to measure next season's rains. All the stock in this district are looking well. In fact, they seem to appreciate the comparatively cool weather and fresh grass to such an extent that the miserable and lean of hut n few weeks ago have put on quite a respectable appearance, and promise to become fat stock in a week or two.
