Pise, or Olay Buüdings. To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal. Sra,-In your issue of February 26th, your Travelling Reporter describes Mr. Campbell's house at Curaiing ham's Plains to be built of pise or earthwork, and that building in this style can be done for ls lOdper perch, and with a thin stucco front it looks very well. Now, sir, as I feel much interested in this (tome new) mode. of building, and being ignorant of the manner in which it is done, I shall feel much obliged if you would give mo some information on the subject. I remain, yours respectfully, A SUBSCRIBER. [The buUdings to which our correspondent refers ar» very common in Prance and America, and there ia really muoh to be said in their favour, for the walls, being non-conductors, are cool in tho summer and warm in the winter ; whilo, when stuocoed or lightly cemented, inside and out, they will» last for centuries, In point of cost, we believe they are much cheaper than brick buUdings, the expenso entailed b...

Sho had refused to go back to her homo, although, as it had been pointed out to her, tho cause of her flight had now no further existence. But Maud had never wavered in her resolve to- accompany Mr. Bath to Sydney. Tho full knowledge of his dreadful position lind made hor a heroine ; and she would havoHhrunk from no clangors to servo hun she loved so well. Tho girl's character was indeed no common ono.

On the Murrumbidgee Thirty Years A.go. [BY AN OLD BUSHMAN.] (CONTINUED.) nroNTHB rolled ou without any event worth noticing irvine transpired. Shawn Doolan and Long Jack Purcell were unohanged in manner. Notwithstand ing the favourable impression made on the chaps by their potato-plundoring midnight excursions, they Sid noti endeavour to improve it by a moro sociable do meanour than had hitherto characterised thom. They were still as taciturn as ever, and kept themselves moodily opart from the other mon ; while tho feelings of the latter towards the pail' settled into a condition of cold indifference, shaded, perhaps, by a tono of dislike. As they performed the work assigned to them with efficiency, Mr. Bruce was contonted with them, and treatod them with his accustomed consideration ; but I thought that latterly a shade of distrust crossed his featuros when circumstances brought him into con tact with Purcell. Mr. Bruce, however, was a man of toomuoh firmness and fairness of charac...
