In consequence of tho inclemency of tho weather on Thurs clay, tho 3rd ultimo, tho mooting that was to havo taken placo concerning tho wnnts of tho district, viz., tho roads, &c., ls now postponod till Saturday, tho 12th instant, at 3 o'clock p.m. At Fornmount, as usual, thero woro only four or five residents present. This river has now boon about six years opened, and tho Government lias derived a good sharoof revenuo by tho salo of land ; and tho roads are not yet com menced.

A punt is required at tho South Arm, and ono on tho Nambitccra, for tho convey ance of tho mail, ns woll as for tho general welfare of tho district.

CRICKETING NOTES FKOM BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

CKIGKETING NOTES FKOM BATHURST. Arrangements having been concluded for a match with the Military and Civil, tho Bathurst team aro going to work practising in earnest ; indeed the match occasions as much interest in its way as an inter colonial, and hosts of aspirants for tho honour of being in " the team" may be seen wending their way to tho cricket ground of an afternoon. I have closely watched the play, and think tbe countrymen will again beat the metropolitan club ; indeed it would give a first eleven of tho Alberts or WarwickB all their wprk to thrash them, and this in spite of there . being " no cricket in the country." The fielding pf tho Bathurstonians is Al, and I would especially mention Carman at point, and Tress at long-stop; tho latter has the prettiest style of picking up a ball I have seen for a long time. Of course, Cassidy is the bowler. After him I place Stewart, who has improved wonderfully since I last wrote, though many of my Bathurst friends fancy West ; but I t...

Grenfell. [FROM UR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Grenfell. [FROM UR CORRESPONDENT.] THE great excitement at this piuco just now is tho fact of tin unfortunate miner falling down a Bhaft 100 foot deep. His mato, who attempted to lower him with tho whip-ropo without taking a turn round tho poBt, ns is usually dono, found ho was unable to hold him for moro than about twenty foot, when ho became overpowered ; he caught a half-turn round ono of tho guido posts of tho horse-walk, but this was torn up like a reed, and down went thu poor mau at lightning speed to tho bottom of Ue shaft. When brought to tho surface it was found that 1 no bones wero broken, but of course ho was severoly shaken. Both men wore much hurt, but according to last accounts, they wero progressing favourably. Tho unfortunate man is a foreigner, and a heavy man. Tho mining matters at the head of tho Milkman's aro not so promising. Thomson's have not increased their prospects nor 1 enlarged their gutter, consequently it is scarcely payable. In Harvey's lease nothing f...

Hnnter River District.-Great Dis tress among- the Settlers, j (laiOM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) "Wednesday, 30th. March. "THE question now is one of actual relief." Such was the observation made by the writer of the able leading article which appeared in the NKWH, of Monday last, on tho 'subjoct of thc lato disastrous Hoods. A more humane, or a moro truthful remark was never modo. Thc question is, indeed, one of " actua.l" and the writer , might well havo added " immediato" relief.

.Pedestrianism. MORRICE V. FOSTER.-On Monday afternoon, a' goodly number of persona (despite the weather) assembled on the Albert ground, to witness tho quarter milo race between Steve Foster, the celebrated trainer, i and a young aspirant for pedestrian laméis, named Morrice. Tho match was made some weeks ngo, and botji mon have been in active training. Steve has boon at Ryde training with Hickey, the champion oarsman of the Australian colonies. Morrice was training on the Albert ground, under'the supervision of Mr. Paterson, well-known in pedestrian circles. The race has'caused considerable excitement, and the backers of both men were very confident, as each was in fine condition. Mondap last was wet aU day, which i made the course very heavy. Shortly after tho ap pointed time both men appeared at the scratch, amidst the cheers of the spectators. The race is easily described, Morrice got a slight advantage at the start, and for about half the distanco Steve kept close to him, but ...

The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

The Turf. The event of the week has been the general entry for the A. J. G. Autumn meeting on last Friday evening ; whioh is fully noticed to-day by " Pegasus." We are sorry to see so soant a representation of other colonies, and some of our own provinces ; but still hope for a good meeting, if the handicaps, whioh come out on Wednesday next, are well made. The only foreigners in tho hst are from Melbourne, whence we have Lamplighter, Kestrel, and Sir Walter, of Mr. Keigh rans ; Misty Morn, of Mr. Saqui's, and Milesian. We are sadly sorry not to have Mr. Fishers with a good string, as he has been a rare supportor of Bandwick for years, and all true sportsmen must regret his loss through the death of " Oharon," which is the primary cause of his absence, as well as of his contemplated departure for Europe, and consequent secession from the ranks (already too much thinned) of Australian turfmen. Mr. Dines's lot, always dangerous in the autumn, are the principal string from tbe Hunter ;...

The Randwick Entries. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

The Randwick Entries. BY PEGASOS. THE entries for the A. J.O. Autumn Meeting have now been a week before the public, as they weremade on tho day of your last publication. Numerically they are strong; though, taking them throughout, the quality looks to be below that we have been accustomed to see during the last few years. Tho wet weather completely puts a stop to writing anything about the horses in work, unless for the absolute sake of spoiling paper, and filling up crevices ; and I will just take a squint through the Bandwick hst, in which one or two items strike me as suggestive and worthy of comment. Tho first thing an observer, however casual, must remark is the small entry for tho weight-for-age races as compared with the handicaps ; whioh says not much in favour of quality, or of owners' fancy for their nags. And here may be noted the gradual, though certain, set of the tide against entrance fees and heavy forfeits, with a corre sponding leaning towards light-forfeit handica...

Betting Market. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Betting Market. TÍTERE is not a great deal to report this weok- Business has boen to some extent influenced by the weather, and a littlo flatter than last week ; but there seems ta us another oauso, and this is, that tho bookmakers are too fond of mooting, and instead of attending to figures they either talk a horse up or down in tho market, and there are a few touts hanging about ready to take in every word that is uttered, and by them borne about tho town. Bookmakers' opinions ought not to bo noticed ; they must remember that tho public will get suspicious if a horso is talked up one wcokanddown tho next. Lot tho public judge for themselves, and let bookmakers keep their opinions to themselves, and not bo eternally cry ing down some particular horse for an objoct. Those remarks havo qcen made to show a reason for the hot ting having been a littlo slack this week, and book makers will find out that if such a practice continuo (and tho public got suspicious that it is done for a mot...

The Vintage. THE Vintage is proceeding actively in thc neighbour , hood of Albury, though the rain of Wednesday week , put a temporary stopjio the work. Loaded drays of must have commenced to como into Mr. Fallon's place. So far as can be ascertained the yield has not been greatly in excess of that of last year, but it is prema ture to report on this matter at present. At "Wah gunyah, Messrs. Brown Brothers have leased one of Mr. Foord's largo stores, and are conducting their wine making operations in it. The grapes are carted thither from the various vineyards in tho neighbourhood of Wahgunyah, Messrs. Brown having purchased several crops. It is to be hoped that the energy thoy have shown will meet its due reward. The wino crops in the locality of Tumut promise this year to be the most abundant ever had in the district. The vines at the Gilmore vineyards look most promising, being literally loaded with clusters of grapes, and it is calculated, should no heavy rains set in to damage...

THE CULTIVATOR. Beetroot Sugar. Ko. 3.

Immodiatoly surrounded by an almost unlimited agricultural district, with a soil fairly adapted for coreáis, and well adapted in suitable sites for vines and moro tropical productions, backed by fine stations, und encircled on tho northern half of tho compass by tho best reeling district I havo yot seen in tho country, Wagga Wagga can scarcely miss becoming a tliriving commercial town.

MOKE than a year ago a discovery was announced by an astronomer in tho southern hemisphere which seemed BO strange and so perplexing, that Sir John Herschel, commenting upon it, remarked " that no phenomenon in astronomy had yet turned up pre senting anything liko the same interest, or calculated to raise so many and Buch momentous points for inquiry and speculation.* One of those mysterious nebulous masses which astronomers had been in the habit of regarding as galaxies, resembling in extent and magnificence the sidereal scheme to which the sun belongs, seemed to bo undergoing a most astound ing series of changes. During the winter months, whon Orion shines with full glory, the famous nebula which clings around his pendant sword presents to our northern observers an object similar to tho nebula in question. Every, one has heard of the strange interest which attaches to this Orion nebula, of the mysterious...

If yon approach hor, she stands up, still holding her foot ot the egg, stretches out her neck, and disgorges the contents of her crop.
