Another meteor was ob served on Monday night at a-bout the same time. Our road between Kirkham lane and | Cobbitty road is in a bad way. Our mem ber, Mr. C. Bull, is now moving in the jaatter so that we hope to have a good road. ' |m.A novelty for this district may be seen of morning proceeding up Stop Hill, formerly galled Uuncle Tom's Cabin Hill, of eight tip arays in a line. These drays are employed l-y Mr. Frank Doust on his road contract. ! A profound repose wraps the affairs of Cobbitty in a death like sleep. A little boy . Was recently observed in the middle of the high road. With the exception of a 'poddy' calf, he was the only sign of life outside the village graveyard. He was heard to give a shout and to stamp his feet several times. Nothing however, came of it, and the dis appointed observer went back again to bed.

[ebom ottr own cobbespondent.] % The river after the late rains and the ^ melting of the snow caused a heavy rush of . * waters from the back country, the rivers during the past few days have abated, and are again passable. The maize crop can now be fairly well' averaged, the result^is not so satisfactory as in previous years, for instance in 1895 five rows of maize on good ground produced a heavy dray load ; this year (1896) on the same land it took from 16 to 17 rows to fill the same size dray. Smut in the maize has been very prevelant throughout the valley. We regret to announce the death of Mrs Reiily, mother of Mr. P. Reilly of the Fig Tree stores Burragorang, on Tuesday the 30th ultimo. Mrs Reilly was 87 years old at the time of her death, and one of the oldest residents of The Oaks. The funeral took place at The Oaks on Wednesday and was most largely attended. Mr J. Williams was the undertaker.

Camden in the old days. [Continued from our last issue.] Cawdor was the first establishment of the kind described and was always known as the ' Head station.' It is part of the Maca:rthur Estate now, and doubtless the remains of the old buldings have long ago been removed. Mr. George Johnstone, son of Major Johnstone, was the person in charge, but unfortunately lost his life there, being thrown from his horse. Adjutant Wild became his successor, and the supervision was po sinecure. Numerous huts were erected for the men. Slaughter yards, tan pits, and all the accessories of a large and varied establishment, soon found a place in this fraay settlement, while the adjacent lands were turned to profitable account by being put under cultivation. One of the out-stations was ' Lowe's- Hill,' opposite Cobbitty. Having been abandoned by the Government it was granted to the late Mr. Macleay, then Colonial Secretary. As the wild cattle became less numerous, it was thought no longer profitable ...
