rBUNGENDORE. [FRoM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] BAZAAI.-On Friday week last a bazaar in aid of St Philip's church building fund was held here. The stock consisted of articles both useful and ornamental, and commanded a fair attendance. I have not heard the exact Samount realised, but am informed that con sidering the dulness of the times and the short notice it was as favourable as anticipated.

HoLLowAY's PkILT.--Health and Vigour.- To the most regular livers occasional disturbances of diges tion will occur which may be corrected at once by these tamous pills, the alteratiae and tonic powers of which cannot be too highly extolled. A dose now then wil prove salutary to everyone, but a continued course must be taken by the confirmed invalid. It is wounderful how the appetite and digestion improve in proportloun as the pills exert their wholesome In fluence over the animal economy. They augment muscular strength and mental vigour. Holloway's pills frequently cure diseases of the digestive organs after all other medicines haoe failed to afford relief and they are especially serviceable in disorder of the iver and kidneys.

FRIDAY-FEBRUARY 12. In the Assembly, . It was ordered on the motion of Mr. Windeyer, that the House should on Friday next go into com mittee of the whole to consider the expediency of introducing a bill to enable the Sydney municipal council to assess unoccupied land. Mr. Windeyer moved the second reading of the Sydney Boundaries' Amendment Bill. He explained that the object of the bill was to include, first the water reserve, next the "No Mlan's Land," dnd last the Paddington municipality, within the municipal boundary of Sydney.
