The Holiday Railway Traffi. On Saturday the trallic, especially on thie country lines (says the ago), was the heaviest yet exlperienced by the lhailwayvde partiinent.

The Taotics of Retreat. (Fl'Ot TIM. " BAILARAT COU?RER..) Sir lenry Parkes is not nmaking pro gress with his two main schemes. His State ouse se semsdestined to go to the wall ; and he is no better off with his proposal to change the name of New South Wales to Atustralia. Yielding to the inevitable, he has informed Mr Copeland and the Assetnbly that nothing further will be done with regard to the State House until next February; and this atlnouncetmtent is accepted by the SNew South Wales Press, people. and the Assembly that there will be no State IIuse at all. The Premier is a little more fightable on the name busi iness. But this wits to be expected, as it would be hard for Sir Henry Parkes to swallow the two pills without making a wry face at least over one, on the name event, he has grown angry with the Imperial Government; and he Ihas given a hint that if tile Salisbury Cabinet opposes tihe change he will ,"want to know, you kItnow" whether its interference with New SouthllWale...

M.ORIWELL ANNUAL K.aLS. -------- 0 - The annual races under the V.R.C. rules were held on Boxing day. The weather being delightfully cool, tle day was thoroughly enjoyable. The fields were I fair, andt, though, the finishes were free : from excitement, the interest being well maintained throughout the day. Tlhe pleasure of the spectators was considerably mareed by two infortunate accidente-one to tie rider of Brown liose and tile other I to our well-known townsmanl, Mr. Date. The first, Mr Rice's son, got his collar-bone , broken when his horse fell early in tihe nice, and tile latter got his leg severely injured through being run over by a horse.

An Extract from "Punch." CERo?cus sends us the following quota. lion from "' Punch."--" Curious illus. trations of tha variety of features that fall to man sometimes occur. We think it was Tlhomas Hood who wrote : " WhaIt different lots our fates accord, This one to be hailed and wooed as a lord, And that to be shunned as a leper. One to the world's wine honey and corn. And one like a Colchester native born To its vinegar only and pepper." " In a solicitor's office in Melbourne some years back there nere three clerks employed in different grades of clerical labour. No, doubt they chatted and hobnobbed fre quently together, as fellow-clerks will do. Each ef them probably had his aspirations and his ambition, but it mny be safely said that not one of the three when in the office of Messrs. Davies and Campbell, solicitors, could have any idea how widely different their walks in life would become. One of them, the IHonorable .1. I. Davies, became, a few weeks ago, Speaker of the Legisla...
