THE-STATION AND THE FARM. THE SELECTION, BREEDING, AND MANAGEMENT OF THE AUSTRA LIAN MEKINO. (From, the Leader.) OS lN-.OfD-T.V BREEDING. Fob a period 01 twenty-five years, the writer was engaged in testing the value of in-and-in breeding. Much controversy has taken place on the Bubject, and not long since, in the columns of the Economist, the discus sion was renewed. Opinions diamet rically opposed were then expressed, but those enunciated by Mr. M'Dougal and Mr. M'Knight my experience compels roe fully to endorse; I may say that I never saw a whole flock, of really good sheep that was not wholty composed of in-bred animals; and I scarcely think it possible to breed good Bheep without having recourse to in breeding. By in-breeding I do not mean indiscriminate breeding without selection; on the contrary, I mean breeding with judicious selection, that is, rejecting rigorously the faulty Bheep, male and female, and breeding only from the perfect. After some years of practical experime...

LITERARY EXTRACTS. : THE BOATMAN'S SONG. My lady lias such lovely eyes, She is the altar of my vows, She seems a Saint of Paradise, But'she shall be my tender spouse ; The rose is not so red as she, 'l'he lily's not so whito as she ; Around her head the beams are spread Which light the world whon day is dead ! And night and day the boatman brave and strong Singeth his song. One day a stranger kissed her hand And heaved a sigh, but all iu vain; The girl waa true to love's command, And would not smile upon his pain. : Said she : "Jly lover's poor and low, His house is not the best I know; But when he stands upon tho sands He seems the lord of all the lands ! " And night and day the boatman bravo and strong Singeth his song. Her name is like a charm to xue, Her voice is like a silver bell; j When I'm alone upon the sea I think of her and all is well. Her virtue keeps my boat secure, Her name has made me proud and pure; In storm and shine her fame is mine, And God will guard tho foaming...
