Many besides farmers will rejoice at this timely downfall , as a large number e veu in the township have had to boy water for some considerable time past. The country around here is changing its appearance very fast. Instead of the sun burnt tint of summer, it is beginning to assume a beautifal green hue. Tbe wheat in a great many paddock* has started on its upward journey, and has already made good progress above grooed. In every paddock I have seen as yet it is coming up exceedingly regular, and is of gplendid color. It is to be hoped that the result by-ard-by will be satisfactory, for in most cases eroend here last year's crop were to a great extent a failure. I do Dot know what the Jamestown and Port Pirie Bailway would have done this setson if it had not been for the supply of water obtained here. I understand that about 2...
