Her whole body was frightfully scorched, bdt I am glad to be able to say that, under the care of Dr. Grey, she is now in a.fair way of recovery, but is, of course, still. in avery. weak state from the..burns and.conse: quoett severe shock to the system.: As is, happily, so general in Australia, her immediate neighboursihave done every thing possible to alleviate" her misf,r tune by sitting up with her day and night, and taking charge of her family. of young childr n.'

'Violet Town infantry. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT..) A meeting was held at Lane's Hotel on Monday, for the purpose of forming a mounted infantry company. There were eighteen gentlemen present. Major Slee addressed the meeting for a considerable time on the benefits of having a mounted corps in the North-Eastern district, When, in the event of war being declared, and should any of them be wanted, they would be able to protect themselves far better, for they would have a certain amount of drill instruction that would'fit them for it.. The Violet Town corps would have nothing at all to do with Euroa, or any other, but would be a   company of their own; and under-their own captain, selected by the company.' Mr. Sutherland spoke in high favour of the proposal, and substantiated Major Slee's statements. Mr. Tuckett thought that it would interfere with the rifle club now in course of formation; but 'Major Slee showed that it would not in any shape or form have that effect. Tho...
