Sir, — I suppose the readers of your valuable paper are about recovered from t-he eliects of 'treading the poeti cal report; of' the football match between Wooragee and the Imperials. I am coming round slowly myself. I might have looked at it with a charitable eye if he had treated us to a homoeopathic dose. But ' no,' he must go. the whole hog. Some of the lines are-deserving of special mention, for 'insbliice, 'We nowss^obk to the bridle rpin, andlwent to the house of 3ff'r Kane.' I hsuppose- the usual speephes at thenar t-)5k^ place tlien, such^as, ' Wliatls your's,' ' Give it a name,' «fcc. I must confess some of it is. lather confusing.

Elizatbeth Taylor, a womlan about 45 years of age, a resident of Rich mond, was tried before Mr Justice A'Beckett in the Supreme Court on Monday 29th, on the charge of having murdered Mrs Ellen Phillips Carter, of Ballan, hotelkeeper.
