THE RESULTS OF A DOMESTIO SPELLING MATCH IN A DETROIT FAMILY. The other evening old Mr. and Mrs. Coffin, who live on Brush-street, eat in their cosy, back parlour, he reading his paper, and she knitting, and the family cat stretched out under the stove, sighing and feeling sorry for cats not so happily fixed. It was a happy, contented household, and there was love in his 'heart as Mr. Coffin put down the newspaper, and remarked, — ' I see that the whole country is becoming excited auout spelling bcuooIs.' 'Well, it's good to know how to spell,' replied the wife. ' I didn't have the chance some girls had, but I pride myself that I can 6pell almost any word that comes along.' ' I'll see about that,' he laughed ; ' come, now, spell buggy.' ' Humph ! that's nothing — b-u-g-g-y, buggy,' she replied. ' Missed it the first time— ha ! ha ! ' he roared, slapping his leg. ?'

Unless the people of this town apd district bestir themselves, any improvement of their means of communication with the metropolis seems likely to be again deferred. Some time ago a public meeting .was held at which resolutions were unanimously adopted, urging the Government at once to make the road from Burrowa to Gunning a second class road. The claims of this road are at least equal to that from Wheeo to Goulburn, and it would accommodate a community who pay far more to the Treasury than the farmers of Grabben Gullen, who, through the exertions of the Goulburn people, are to be tempted to extend their agricultural operations, by the prospect of a first class 'road to bring their produce to market^ Compared with this large grant theajjJJEcation of the Burrowa people for a second class road to Gunning, at. half the allowance of the former, is modest in the extreme. It appears, however, that red tape will, if possible, avoid doing anything to make the Gunning road more practicable t...

BURSTING OF A BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 28 August 1875
BURSTING OF A BALLOON. The upper portion of the balloon rolled up into a body at the top of the net, of perhaps 10ft. in diameter, the lower hemisphere having the mouth of the balloon attached by a strong cord to the hoop folded together like an umbrella turning in side out by the force of the wind, so that there was but little resistance to the air. At the time of the accident, I was about three miles in height : of course 1 fell almost with the rapidity of a stone through the thin atmosphere for the dis tance of a few thousand feet, until I had time to throw out all my ballast, bottle of water, and one of my anchors, which I could unfasten. The larger anchor rope had received so great a strain upon it during the night, that I could not uutie the knot eithfcr at the hoop or at the anchor, I let it down, however, the whole length of the rope, so that it might strike the ground first, and assist in breaking the shock which I expect to receive on reaching the earth. My Leghorn hat, tw...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 28 August 1875
LONDON WOOL REPORT. The next sales in London will commence on August 17, and Messrs. Hazard and Caldecott see no reason to doubt a continuance of late rates; the quantity of ^NewZealancl to be brought for ward will be heavy, but thiB description sold com paratively cheaDer than other sorts during- May Sales, and we learn that the loss in weight has been somewhat lighter than was expected; this may .tend to steady prices when the -bulk is brought forward.

Since the close of the sales our market has been quiescent, and W6 hear of no transactions worth mentioning. Trade in the North is fairly good, ...
