*TO TBE EDITOR. Sir,---s I know your eagerness to assist the helples and ltrxlilcin-op oues, I irrite tp ask you to have my sad case made public. I am a dead heifer, and lying here without, as far as I.ean see, any chance of a decent funeral. My undertarker should be a gentle man ip Juroa, but he lives. ofar awaythat I am afraid erenl tthe legitimnte imeins Ii intend using to attract people's attention, through the medinum qf their olfactory nerves, will be lost upon him. I would willingly dispose of my hide and hoofs, and give tZe proceeds towardsas pppoting :olocal' inzpectoi here. It cannot be said there is nothing.to inspect, fpr surely no other town ever offered so splendid a fiald .for an enter prising man to supervise. The swamps, the gutters, inp pccasipnally an unhappy refunct being like myself in our midst will afford him a capital opportunity of display ing.his energy.-I am Sir, y!rs, &c., DEAD HEIFE.ý Lily street, Viplet Town, Sep. 7, 18S5.

Several gentlemen have asked us the meaning of the vice-president's conduct, at the close of the concert, when called upon to propose a vote of thanks to .those ladies and'gentlemeen who so generously contributed to the evening's entertain ment. There is not so much surprise at Mr Weir's remarks about the character of the songs that should be chosen for an entertainmqunt of.the kind, as there is at the undignified manner in which lie pnded his reiparks, on accepeut of the audience expressing their dissept to his expressed opinions. The above grievance would most likely.av.o been forgotten, had not Mr Weir thought fittu ppblish a letter in the following Friday's .dvertiser,i with reference to same, and by so doing stirred up all t...

In the morn ing horsemen were seen coming to the township from various directions ; and in the afternoon the cleared space near Hill's hotel was the rendezvous of about forty young men dressed is various colours. It transpired that a football match was to take place between Monea and Pranjip. Both teams sent class of young men, that any colony need be proud of. They plainly showed that hard manual labor does not impair a person's efficiency in athletics. At 2 o'clock a move was made to a paddock near the police station, where the contest was to take place. Play was commenced at 3,   Pranjip winning the toss, and electing to kick with the wind. Monea, being short-. handed, had to appoint several subiti tutes. Some of these were not well acquainted with the rules of the game. One young knight of the anvil, having marked the ball on three occasion...
