Disastrous Fires. WINDSOR. (From the Herald.) About a quarter to. 2 o'clock on Wednesday a most [?] fire broke out -at Windsor. The flames, being fanned by n westerly wind, spread rapidity from house to honse. nntil by half-past S o'clock fully thirty buitdings were destroyed. Tho day was as dis agreeable as. can possibly be imagined. All the morning clonds of dusty hot air were blown with'almost hurricane, foree _ across the. town, and a worse day'for a fire conld .scarcely have occurred, for the roofs and woodwork of tbe houses' were in the most infiammablo con dition. There were various reports of the fire y but that which seemed most profc. ablo was that a spark from Montgom ery's blacksmith's shop, oh tho western side of Qeor§g-atte?t, Mew on to somt .timber, ia Mr. Gosper's taauery. on the oppotate s&lt;d? of the street.

WANTED A FIRE BRIGADE. (To the Editor of the Singleton Argus.) I remain, dear, sir, Yours very truly, COVE ABOUT TOWN. Singleton, 29th December, 1874. DEAR SIR,—Would you permit me through the columns of the Argus to [?] the atten-&lt;*> tion of those whom it may concern, to the fact of this town, not only being without a fire-engine, but withont a fire brigade of any sort It would not surely be difficult amongst our townspeople to form a Bucket and JLadder Company, -lots of young and -strapping fellows would, I am sure, at once enrol themselves for snch a purpose, and alt thnt would then be required, would be a com petent and practical instructor, Windsor m flames might well "be a caution to us, aud to others whose apathy has been (as yet) un disturbed through years of continued well being, and "prosperity. - The foot race for £100 aside, between Baxter and .-Applitt, came oif in the_ police'paddock, at JParkes, on Saturday - last, 'Applitt winning easily.

The Two Friends. ' A Tale of Life In Australia. (Written expressly for this Journal) CHAPTER VIII [BY A. G. M.] THEY all stare at one mother for a second or se. Tracy, glass in hand (his impromptu [?] short), looks round with an amused smile : the captain stares in mate astonishment; Courtney, Temple, and Uptait arc all three Tory mack puzzled ; Mr. Adolphns Sirapfciirs is the only person present who appears *o Tie unmoved, l>nt Mr. Adoljihus Simpkiiis is never "very demonstrative.

Sullivan, the New Zealand Murderer. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 30 December 1874
Sullivan, the New Zealand Murderer. THE sentence of the Court in Victoria is that Sullivan is to be taken in custody to New Zealand, which means that he will be kept in gaol till an opportunity offers to get him to New Zealand, when he will lie placed on hoard a ship for that place, in charge of a constable, who will accompany him to that colony, and leave him on the wharf. The authorities thero -mil probably be waiting to weave bjm, in order to pie jveot his being Ivxacbeti. So>ne dif&euliry will no doubt-be experienced in obtaia -hyr ?. jw?s&lt;age for hrm, as no shipmaster will care to harve him offboard, for fear bis presence would deter other passen gers", from travelling by tbe same boat, as most travellers would probably regard SutKvsot as; u'Jonalt.

Grape-growing Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 30 December 1874
Grape-growing Extraordinary. The Gardener's Chronicle could not believe the telegram stating the weight of the Bunch of Black Hamburg grapes shown at the Belfast International _sliow at 211bs. 12ozs. . It appears, how ever, that the fignres were correctly stated, and the bunch was grown by Mr. Hunter, gardener to the Carl of Dur ham, at Lambton Castle. No explana tion is given of the system of culture,or conditions nnder w'lich this nbnormally . sized bunch wa* produced. - Its desig nation is challenged by no one, so that we have not tho opportunity of suggest ing that it might be a bunch of Frank en thai, a large and coarse variety of Hamburg, having however, several characteristics which serve to distinguish it. . Mr. Hunter's exhibit, therefore, must have been a true Hamburg, and a single bunch, not a conglomeration of bunches from a singlo eye, as was a bunch weighing Blbs 140z5., shown in IiJGO by Mr. Payne, gardener to Mr. Bedell, of Chelmsford. Mr. Hunter's bunch was necessar...
