Kelham, manager of the Junction Mining Company, recently applied in the usual manner for permission to cut a race, but the Department of Publio Instruction politely informed him that on receipt of £16 I5s the application would be considered, and the race surveyed. The monej was forwarded, and in due course Mr. Keale, appraiser, ar rived, instructed Mr. Biddulph to survey the race, and then proceeded to value the land situated between the race and the river Belubela. The laud, be it remembered, is a mass of rock, almost perpendicular, and would not grow enough feed for one goat for 24 hours. lie reoeives five guineas for valuing this land, which ho very justly sets down at nil.

I confess it is so^with me just now, for I fear I have nothing more impor tant to write about than the weather, the prevailing epidemics, and the farming ope rations, &cf: Well! to begin with the weather, I think it is as cold here as it onn possibly be in any part of the colony. Night alter night we are visited by that well-known white-robed spectre, Jaok Frost, in all his power and glory. Ttie mornings and evenings are bit. terly cold, and the Utile warmth in the sun shine at mid-day can scarcely force its way through the iruzen atmosphere. We have been very fortunate, so far, to escape the snow-falls on the low grounds, though we can see very often the white crusts of the Tindra Mountains. Epidemics are fashion able just now about Mioalago ; n...
