' The Adjutants-Story. CHAPTER IX. (co NTINUKD), Tins parade being a garrison parade, tlio proceedings should properly have been read by -the garrison adjutant; but that ofiicer being absont on pome special Bervice, the duty devolved upon me.

A MATCH was played on Saturday last at Emu Plains, betwoon tlio Emu 0.0. and the Windsor 0.0. resulting in a victory for the Windsor team 011 the first innings by 18 runs, although, had the gamo been played out, it would have presented quite a difforont aspect; as the Windsor's in their 2nd innings managed to total 12 only, owing to the magnificent bowling of E. Fakir, and A. Evans. The Emu 0.0. following, made 20 for the loss of two wickots, boing then only 11 runs behind , tlioir opponents, with 8 wickots to fall, when timo was called. If tlio Oaptain of the Windsor 0-0, had acted with a littlo moro courtesy and sent his men into timo in the 2nd innings, amplo time would have boon loft to play it out, and a victory in favour of the local club would un doubtedly liavo rosulted.

SINCE the auspicious event in connection with the Protestant Hall foundation stone, held a few weeks ago, the town lias returned to its old state of somnolency, there being no amusements offered to enliven tho in habitants. Business is not over-brisk, and the general cry is " scarcity of the needful." An interesting and instructive entertain ment was given in the Church of England Schoolroom, a short time back by Mr. D. T. Wiley of Penrith, on the subject" A voyage to tho Arctic Regions." Mr. Wiley was successful in his endeavours to instruct, and interest his fairly large audience, with a descriptive account of an imaginary tour to that frigid locality. The subject was capi tally illustrated by means of tho oxy-calcium lantern. Tho pi'OQeejls wore to be dovotcd to the Church Building Fund. The large tannery is still idle, which lins a tendency to injure trade somewhat, as it employed a number of hands, and was the source of a larg...

Such is her acccount, and it much reminds mo of the description givon by Mr. John Price, at tho celebration of his son's attainment, a few weeks ago. Tho old lady boasted of remembering incidents equally as well as Mr. Prico, and oven bet ter, for said sho, "I was the one Mvlio did tho business'-that is to say, alio was a principal a...
