THE BUTTERFLY AND THE BEE. A "FAULK REM THE TIMES, (By " Bachelor.") IT was a bright day in summer-the itzniro sky was streaked with silver, and flowers of various hues basked in the sunshino, wlion a gorgeous Buttei fly pursued her rapturous Slight. Flitting from flowor to flower, she at length sottled on the edge of a radiant ?lily that spread its gold and crimson petals to the genial rays of the mid-day sun. Ex panding an&lt;l shutting her wings with silent ocstaey, she lieoamo absorbed in contemplat ing tlio loveliness of her appearance, and the delicacy of lior shape, when alio was arousoil by a distant murmur, that soon increased to an intolerable humming, and, lo ! a. burly Beo suddenly alighted upon the lily's" op poaito edge. On recovering from her sur prise, thoButtorfly resented what she deemed tlio rudeness of the Beo, with a glanco of supercilious disdain, which the Bee returned with a look of mingled contempt and pity. "How dare you?" said she, at length, " thr...

FAT SHEEP.-IS,7(58 were yarded for the week. Of this number, as usual of late, there was a large proportion of very in ferior quality, upon which a fun titer decline had to be submitted to, whilst for good to prime sheep there was a brisk competition, and the whole of this class were readily cleared out at a slight improvement on last week's quotations.

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 June 1869
NARANDERA. [FROM QUI: OWN- COUIIKSPONDKKT.T THE weather since I last wrote you has hccit all that could be desired, feed abnndant, and stock of all descriptions looking well. In this and other localities 111 the district the cater pillars (I do not refer to travelling sheep) are very destructive. In one paddock, that some three weeks ago was thickly covered with grass, not a blade is now to be seen It is to be hoped the crops of the neighbour hood may not bo invaded by them, or if they are, that some means may bo discovered whereby they may be extcorminated.

THE Hospital Committee have com mitted themselves to the conclusion that ono Medical Officer is sufficient for the requirements of the Wagga Wagga Hospital. We really do not want to say anything offensive of the gentlemen who formed the quorum on Monday night. At any rate, they at tended, and if the decision they arrived at was idiotic, the blame is with those whose absence gave an opportunity to certain possibly well-meaning, but decidedly foolish individuals, to make a mess of it.
