A road that in the vetieet weithtr would not cut np sufficiently to allow a buggy wheel to sink over the rim, and the deepest grade on which was not wore than one iu seventy, has been ploughed up and cuttings and embankments made ao that the resident engineer's fad of a jnrfecdy level ro«d inigbt be strictly adhered to fia other wurds a most unprofitable expenditure has been incurred to maka a 'pretiy' roid.

Fearful atrocities are said to have al ready taken place amongst the natives themselves, some of whom declare for Spanish rule, whilst the majority re main insurgent. I he war waged by human beings against one another is ?ndoubtedly bitter and calamitous, lint the war which rheumatism wagad upon Mr. David Robertson, pf Byron street, Kew, Victoria, wai even more cruel and malignant.
