Trustful deluded creatures, they did not then know that Government "road making" simiply meant scraping.the mud off the side off the street and carefully putting it down in the middle, to be cotered over at some remote period with a coating of stone. 'The contractors muddled along at the mud-moving department of their business for about a month, and by the end of that time had contrived to transform the streets into pretty much the condi tiohof ploughed fields.

DENILIQUIN. :Friday, June 20, 1800. We have again to record some fine mild rains hav -ing fallen at intervals for several days since our last 'ishue, in and around Deniliquin.

Sydney Jottings. Sydney, July 3, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 7 July 1866
vbnaep ,Jottings. [FIOM OUR OWv N CORnESPONDENT.] Sydney, July 3, 1866. The full penalty of the law was this morning, carried out in the case of James Crookwell, of Bargo Brush notoriety. It is fresh in the minds of all newspaper readers that young Constable Raymond met his death by a shot from a revolvet discharged by Crookwell, who, in conjunction with the other Crown prisoners, was at the time desperately attempting to effect his escape, fortu nately as it proved without success, but ending fatally for Constable Raymond. Of the six pris oners who were condemned to death for this, five are under sentence of hard labour for life in irons, and Crookwell has been hanged. His death was certainly far from being as speedy as Greens, who was executed a short time since. Crookwell, who is rather a fine man and well proportioned, has seemed more callous to and inattenltive to the at tentions of his religious advisers than is generally tlihe case. I am told that he spent a quiet night and e...

Lower Murrumbidgee. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 7 July 1866
[FROM OUR CORRESt OaENT.] I n?VE little news of any description to give you from this quarter, and still less that is likely to prove of much interest. The drought indeed ap pears to ]veo thoroughly broken up, and during the last six, weeks we have had nearly twice as muchidepth of rain as we had during the previous eighteen orineteen months. The grass is conse quently sjnging nicely in most places, and the country has assumed a sort of verdure to which the eye-has been a stranger for many a long day. The lambing, of the disastrous results of wlhich so many fears were entertained and expressed, has, by a for tunate chance, commenced Fiather liter, on most of the river stations, than is usual, and there is now fair hope of an increase quite up to the average, especially if frost, from which we have hitherto been unu'sually exempt, -continues to hold off. The rain, however welcome, has, nevertheless, entailed its disagreeables upon us, the roads being almost impractieable in many plac...

Drawn up at Montet, February 10, 1863. (Signed,) G. CORNAZ." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 7 July 1866
Drawn up at 1ontet, ?ebruary 10, 1863. h (Signed,) G.'Conaz." We may learn .from a pamphlet of Prefessor Thury, "On the Law which regulates the Sex of Plants and Animals," what is his scientific theory, and what are the practical directions which he Seduces from it. The following statement is a brief summary of his views. " Starting with the vegetable kingdom, Professor Thury adopts the theory of Knight, who, in Concert with Wolff, De Candolle, and Robert Rrown, considered sta mens and pistils to be fundamentally identi cal (both being modifications of the leaf,) and further regarded the production of the male organ in plants as due to greater maturity or more perfect development. Considering how general the laws of Nature are, the Professor infers that that the propa-: gation of animals follows an analogous course. lie states that it.:has already:,been admitted. that for certain oviparous animals the last hatchings produce males; that Huber recog nised as a fact that early fecundat...

RIiceleitaUnCon. ON REGULATING THE SEX OF THE OFF SPRING OF ANIMALS. Is THERna be any device for regulating the sex of the offspring of our flocks and herds, every breeder is interested in knowing it; even if a hint can be given which only im proves his chance, without costing much trouble, it still is a boon. It would seem from the following testimo nial that Professor Thury of Geneva had got some insight into one of the factors which enter into this complicated and mysterious problem : "I, G. Cornaz, manager of the property of my deceased father, M. A.

CHURCH MUSIC. (To the Editor of the Express.) Sua,--I had no intention of troubling you again bn the question of the Choir, but as a correspondent in your last week's issue has charged me with un truthfulness, I hope you will allow me space fornmy. version of affairs. I nay at once state that I shall take no further notice of any allusions to the sub ject, and what I have said, as well as what I am about to say, I am in a position to prove, either by reliable witnesses or written documents. First, the statement that the chanting of the Kyrie is "directly opposed to the Iubric" is an erroneous one, as every churchman knows. Second, that "I introduced the practice here" is not the case. I followed the suggestion of the Clergyman offi ciating at the time, as all the Choir can testify. Third, I do not know why Mr. Fox failed to ob taiis a substitute for me, nor was the wording of the lines "if any grave reason existed for putting a stop todall musk, ,&c., &c.," at all th...
