AMERICA. New York, 11th July. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 8 September 1866
AMERICA. New York, 11th July. A most terrible conflagration occurred at Poe land, Me., on the 4th instant, caused by a boy throwing a lighted fire-cracker among some shav ngs. One half of the city was destroyed; nearly all the business portion being included. All the banks, dry goods stores, jewellery estabhshments, telegraph olffices, eight churches and other public buildings, were burnt to the ground. The wind was blowing a gale at the time the fire commenced, and caused the flames to spread with the greatest fury, sweeping ruin, destruction, and desolation everywhere. Over fifty buildings were blown up in the hope of making a space between the fire and tlhe other buildings, but the effort was useless. It is estimated that about two thousand buildings were destroyed, involving a loss of ten million dol lars. Two thousand families were rendered house less, losing nearly every valuable they had pos. sessed, and are now dependent on the generosity of those who were fortunate enough t...

3-tOUW Cr itur1tu'l biitt) tug e. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.' PASTORAL.-The past season has proved, spite of any well-founded anticipations to the contrary, far more favorable in its lambing returns than its two predecessors, and the average increase on the river genirally. may be estimated at 35 per cent; of course, we not infrequently hear of from 95 to 100 per cent., but these statements must be taken coum grado, the increase'being calculated, not on the en tire flock, but simply on the ewes which lamb. Shearing has already commenced on many of the down-river stations, while others who have been delayed by want of water or dearth of feed in the neighbourhood of their sheds, will, after the late rains and subsequent rise in the river, commence almost immediately. Feed is everywhere abundant now except on :runs which, from their having been too fully stocked for the late wretched season have hardly been allowed time to recover themselves, and within the prescribed half-mile on either...

JMr. Parkes has given notice of motion in the Legislative Assembly for leave to introduce a Bill for the better provision for public instruction. This is undoubtedly a matter freighted with the greatest interest to the whole colony, andti so far as I have been able to learn Mr. earkes has sketched out the bill in a true statesmanlike and sensible manner, and I can safely say that if fairly handled it cannot but meet with a hearty reception from both sites of the house and the country genertlly. 'The main features of the bill are somewhat as fol lows:--First, the c astion of a Minister of Educa tion. The abolisahient of the present National ;ttd Denominational Boards, and the admitistra tion of the funds by a Council of Education. Secondly, the creation of common schools, the sup poetihg of one school only, where the community is not suIfficiently large for the existence of two good ones. Thirdly, the contribu...

The hon. gentle man having reviewed the conduct of the professed friends, and open enemies of State-aid in the House challenged the support of such members of the MIinistry as were known to be in favour of it. The Government were bound to do as they-had pro mised, and vote right and left upon the matter, leaving the motion to its fate.

IThe lovers of athletic sports, not withstanding this disappointment, were not to be done out of their promised amusement, and several matches were accordingly got up for their.dclecta tlon upon the green near the Albion Hotel. The first was a foot race of 100 yards, between John Bradney and Aaron Baker, for £2 a-side, which was taken easily by Baker. About two hours later Baker ran J. Delaney another 100 yards race, for £1 a-aside.

FRIDA~Y, SEPTI~BEMBE 7. LEGISLATIVE ASSEfMBLY. On Thursday, no business of importance was. transacted in the Assembly. On Friday, Mr. Fors ter moved the second reading of the bill to remove the restrictions onidistillation, the object of which he Ssaid was to encourage the utilisation of articles of natural produce now wasted. Mr. Eager opposed thebill as calculated to largely injure the revenue and to promote demoralisation. Mr. MIartin pointed out that the power of distillation existed now, and the reason it was not had recourse to was because Sit did not pay. The bill would be of:no use wiutlth out a differential duty, and a differential duty would destroy an important branch of our customs re venue.

Tie Race meeting which cldsed at Randwick on Saturday afternoon, was, considering the prevail ing scarcity of the necessary, an unqualified suc cess. The weather was lovely, the attendance fair, the acceptances numerous, and the racing good; The result of the different races you have already had, and there is therefore no necessity for me to detail them again. Another riot took place in Hyde Park yesterday, and I never witnessed such a crush of people there before, and calculated that about 4000 wea as sembled, of which 200 or more were prepared for a conflict. There was little or no preaching, and the police and detectives were in full force. Several arrests took place, the police behaving admirably. Whenever any of these arrests were made therea was an instantaneous rush, and several pieces of ugly missels continued to fly about the heads of the police. Inspector Read had a nasty knock from one of these, ...

PASTORaL.-I find, on perusing your issne of Satur day last (8th), that your attendant imps have booeen playing not exactly the "devil among the tailors," but are very likely to infuse a slightly diabolical tendency in the tempers of the sheep farmers, all of whom are congratulating themselves on rather a good lambing ;when, however, they come to find their increase reduced to thirt?-.fice per cent, I fear, if they believe the statement, tohey will rush into the arms of MIr. Baxter, and at once go in for the commencement of the Mlillenium in 1873.
