FINNISS VALE. 1 From our own Correspondent. I Finniss Vale, April -3. The usual weekly meeting of our Institute was held iu the school-room on Monday even ing, 1st instant. The attendance was good — larger than we have had since the busy season set in. I have no doubt but that in a week or two it will regain its wonted large attendance. Several readings were given in a very creditable manner, and a programme arranged, when the meeting closed. A large fire occurred ou Mr. Gaudy's pro perty yesterday. It appears that gentleman was engaged stubb'c-burning, when the fire broke away from him, and caught a post and rail fence, burning some 100 chaius of it. Several people were quickly on the spot, aud they had a good afternoon's work in ex tinguishing it, which they did not succeed in doing until it had burnt the fence and about a section and a half of good grass. The very busy season is now over, and the farmers have finished carting their wheat to the wharf. Some 1,400 bags of wheat hav...

THE SEVERITY OF THE WINTER OS THE CONTINENT— A TItAIN ATTACKED BY WOLVES. ' Die P.csse,' of Vienna (January 19) maker; the following remarks on the extreme severity of tfcc wiuter there, and the inconvenience caused by the heavy snowstorms : — It is fortunate that most poems on the beauties of winter are written in summer, otherwise, if the poets invoked their Muse at the time of snow-storms aud stoppage of all traffic, she would only make answer — ' It is digesting wiatlier to day.' It is a nice simile to compare snow with a white sheet (wiegendeckt), hut it must be admitted the iast few days the sheet has been made a little too solid. Out city to day was entirely blocked tp by a heavy snow-storm, and the provision markets, owing to tbe absence oi'fatcsmcn fjoai the country, were almost empty.

OUR POSTAL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 13 April 1867

OUR POSTAL SYSTEM. In commenting the other day upon the future postal arrangements proposed by the Inter colonial Conference, we gave the Victorian representatives the credit they deserved for an evident, if new-born, willingnessto consider the claims of other colonies in a just and catholic spirit. Victorian unselfishness was certainly a uew feature in Melbourne conferences, an dour admiration was not unmixed with wojider when tlip. rfisult. wss first made known. But unfor tunately conference resolutions are not im mutable. Every one reinembens the fate of the Tariff covenant, which was to have been ) divulged with such scrupulous exactness of j method and time in all the colonies simul taneously, but which scarcely survived the vote that ratified it. The postal agreement will undoubtedly sustain a similarly untoward I doom, and the peans of exultation which have been sung will have to succumb to wails of mor tification and discontent. The simple fact of the matter is that the dele...
