Castle Hill. Geeat iuterest is beiug manifested in tho forthcoming show, aud, if appearances and preparations count for anything, wo may con clude that Castle Hill will have reason to bo proud of this year's exhibition. Anotheb absorbing topic just now is tlio Castle Hill-eum-Dural Railway. Wo havo heard expressions of opinion on this everinter esting subject. One gentleman whose oxpor fruitgrower (the line wo 'will suppose to have been constructed solely for the benefit of the fruitgrowing community) wero compelled to pay an increased rate for the carriage of his truit, it could be arranged that directly tho traffic increased sufficiently, this high scale, of charges might bo gradually lowered until it finally disappeared. Thus, when the traffic returns showed an abnormal profit — accruing from tho (probablo) increase of business — tho surplus charges need no longer exist, thero being no valid reason for their continuance Ho argues that it would bo much better for any fruitgrower t...

Current News. On Saturday afternoon last two of the boar ders at TI.M. Girl's Industrial School, Parrd matta, left the institution without leave and started, off for tho city, intending to take the 8.25 train. As the young ladies were prepar ing to embarkj they were arrested and taken back to tho institution. They were landed back, safe and sound, out of harm's way, with in an hour of their departure, and vet we doubt whether they could be induced to say a word in favour of tho smart lady who looked after them so well. Jottx Flynn, an inmate of tho Parramatta Hospital for Insane, in. company with a num ber of other patients, was treated to a trip round the Harbour on Friday the 5th. They landed at Middle Harbour, and, on tho com pany being mustered, Flynn was missing. He is an old salt, and very quiet and inoffensive.
