LIVI LY LETTER-'IRITI 'GU. A few weoksback a'writer, signing him self "Austral,"' whose lucubrations are sup posed to come from Towong, gave a few "nasty jars " in'the columns of our Tallan ?atta contemporary to isg ntleman residing n the same neighborhood.

THE WODONGA.TALLANGATTA RAILWAY. TO TIHE EDITOR OF TIlE SENTINEL. SI,--Referring to a letter which ap. peared in the Argus, and also in your paper, a short time ago from "Ratepayor," writingfron Tallaugatta, anent theo odonga. Tallangatta railway, I should like to make a few remarks. " Rdtopayor" secom greatly concerned abolt the public Treasury, inasmuch as ie considers there is to be a great waste of money, but where he makes it out to occur I can't conloove. In the first place, he says the projected lineo takes the wrong side of the road, and that by keeping on the upper side the whole length of the second section wollll be through Crown lands, with the exception of two or three miles. Now, if he reversed this, it would be inuch nearer the mark. As a matter of fact almost all of the land on that side of the road has been taken up,' nnd if there is as much Crown liands sa he says, it most be in some of the paddocks, so "I do not see where ainy great saving would hlie effected in t...

CONCERT AT IVODONCA. For several weeks past, Messrs Chapman and King, two of our best local amateurs, have been engaged in the meritorious work of preparing fifteen boys for a nigger entertainment in aid of the funds of thie Athenmum. Rehearsals have taken place almost nightly, the lads evincing an ig an interest in the task they had undlertaken which was most encouraging to their mentors. The concert came off last evening in the Prince of Wales' Hall, in the presence of a large audience. It should be mentioned that Messrs Muir, King, and Chapman, all of whom are old favorites here, and Mr Moore, a recent arrival, also took part; but, beyond this quartette, the talent was new and original. Mr Chapmano presided at the pianoforte throughout the evening; Messrs Lambourn, Manns, and Williams were violinists; and Messrs Truderwind and Barblr discoursed on the cornet. This made up the orchestra. Master Carl Schlink acted as interlocutor, being supported at either end by Masters Syder (tam...

A CIIALLENG?E TO COUNCILLOR ,CARLETI'T. TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE O?NTINEL. smn,--'Through the medlum of your widely circhlatihg paper, I would ask Councillor Soarlett whether it Is a fact that, at the last council'meotihg at Tiulangatta, whilkt on the subject of' tle smokeo nuisance at Ilo thanga,. he sthtet that "if women were broughtt to Bothnnga suffering from horodi tary diseases, thov must expect to suffer," or words to .the like effect.. Those words, ff uttered, convey one of the gronteot insults he could offer, not only to tlie unfortunate womcn who are su-ffering from arsenical p?lsoning, llht to all thr woman in the locality, and therefore it is necessary to know whether suchi words were used. Silence on Councillor Scarlett's part we shall take to mean liis admission; for thie acousation is blontly oade against him: Yours, &c., AN INtmI(yANT'nuAnRlNT. ilothmaga, 110th March.

BAZAAR AT ALBDUR. The committee of tile Albury Catholic School Hall laving decided to hold a bazaar to supplement thie funds of the institution, the ladies of that congregation and others have been very busy during the past month in making up articles for disposal by sale or otherwise.

This train leaves the Springs Station at about 3.35 p.m. On Monday it travelled as usual towards Wangaratta, meeting with nothing unusual until approaehing the Beechworth June tion. Then suddenly the train entered what appeared to be a belt of most ox. traordinary atmospheric disturbance. A perfeet cyclone was raging, and shooeets of rain, accompanied byimmeonse hailstones, desconded. The wind was apparently blowing from the south-east, and at this particular spot the direction of the railway iino loft the train exposed to the force of the gale at an tingle of about 45 degrees. Such was the immlonso velocity and power of the wind that its pressure forced the flanges of the whools on what sailors would call the leoo sido of the train dangerously upon the rails, and the driver conlsidered it advisable to pull up rather ...

About a month ago I had occasion to take out a summons, and, after a lot of trouble between here and Chiltern. I eventually procured the document. The case, to all appearance, was to have been decided the following Wednesday-just a fortoight ago-and, with a police magistrate and two honorary justices on the bench, I thought all would hoe right. 'However, after patiently waiting till all the business had heon gone through, I was told by the C.P.S. thatmy case had been adjourned. Now, the fact is, my case had never ooeen entered in the magistrato's book at all, and for that reason, and for no other, it was not called. Well,I was told that my case would be heard nine days later-viz., last Thursday-so I lost another half day in rolling up, No junstices turned up this time, However, I was informed that if I would only attend ...
