Wallerawang (From our own correspondent.) The Wallerawang ra'lway yard is now un dergoing drastic alterations. About 100 men were at work on Sunday last doing neces sary work that otherwise would be impos sible while traffic and shunting were going ?on.

Mr. John Payne, a resident ?of many years' standing, is being removed to Hornsby loco, shed, and Mr. James Bag nail, one of the oldest residents in Wallera wang, is being removed to Mudgee. Two or three others are also going, and some who are anxious for removal, have been told that they are to stop here. We do not know, or do we believe the railway authori ties, know, what will be the ultimate result of all this. Possibly in the near future all . this will be undone, and Wallerawang will yet be one of the principal ...

A Call to Every Man. Wben the lockfast book is opened and the thrilling tale is told ?Of our heroes close by Egypt, where the battle-tide has rolled. Tell me, when we read the story, will your . name be written there? When the deeds of pal and brother echo loud from shore to shore, Will you feel like many another, sick at heart and conscience sore, Knowing that you shirked your duty, paid no heed to country's call; Their'3 the honor and the glory, yours the wormwood and the gall? Too late then to don the Khaki, too late then to wear the blue. Now's the time to grasp the sword-hilt if to manhood you'd be true. Sweep aBide that paltry hindrance, you, Australian, play the man! Sign to-day the roll of honor, volunteer while yet you can. Let the sneering, craven scoffer live bis lit tle, useless life ; There's no room for slimy reptiles in the British Lion's strife. No. 'tis men who hear the summons, men that listen to obey, Men from city, men from country — will you take your place to-d...

Be Jabez ! He's Wright. Mr. Jabez Wright, M.L.A. for Willyama, in the State House, is nothing if not original. Speaking to Mr. Carmichael's motion last week to take a referendum on the six o'clo ck closing of hotels, Mr.' Wright is reported to have said, amongst other things, that he favored National opinion— but if National Opinion were carried, he would le'ave the country: — It was Jabez the Good, Who in Parliament stood, In the midst of his laborite brothers; And sought to explain That he wouWnt- abstain — 'Twas something quite welcome to others. Why question the Wright Of 'nipping' at night?'— And Jabez then uttered a warning; 'The secret was plain, He'd repeat it again — 'The curse was the nip in the mornJD£.' But let us rejoice, / For the musical voice Of Jabez defeated the motion; We're delighted to-night To know Mr. Wright Is remaining this side of the ocean. P. A. FITZPATRICK. Wingham.
