J The' calamity which, has^fallen upoa the ?farmers of the Barrabool Hills and the valley ? of the Moorabobl, is s6;awful in its aspect, so sudden in its aecomplishinent, so lamen 1 table in its consequences, .that it can only ' be equalled in those pages of history where; invading armies are described as laying countries waste with Hire and sword. 'In the course of r few^hours the labour of many years has been reduced to nought, and the ? stout hearts ?which have borne up 'hopefully against many reverses, are again- cast dov/n in despair. . The , highly, cultivated district 'which on Thursday morning was teeming ?with the fruits of harvest, is now a black ened sm'oking waste ; the stacks of wheat are reduced to little heaps of cinder3 ; the' fences' are only traceable by the red lines of ashe3 ; the sites of houses' are here and there only recognizable' by heaps of smouldering ashes, or a few...

GDotmtrg ^intelligence. WELLINGTON. We have had a dreadful season here for the last three mouths, but lately have had some fine showers. The weather has been sometimes excessively hot, but now it is moderately warm, and sometimes cool. Early this month the thermometer ranged from 1 00 ° to 1 07 ° in the heat of the day. There is little feed in the neighbourhood, and a had prospect for the winter, unless plenty oferain falls soon. The effects of the late showers can scarcely be seen on the tare ground near the river, but a few miles in the bush, where thete is old grass, there is some young feed springing up, and almost every day we have the prospect of. more rain.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 March 1851

Hocal Intelligence. The Ethiopian Ssp.enadkrs. — The Messrs. Howard arrived at Bathurst on Saturday last, and have since been perform ing in Mrs. Black's large room to numerous nnd respectable audiences. Since their lost visit we perceive that a change has taken place in their company, and in some re ape'cHfe we think for the bettter, by the intro duction of a fresh 'bohea' and 'banjo,' both of whom perform upon their respective in struments, if we may so terra them, in a stvle much superior to their predecessors. The ' banjo' also sings sweetly and with good taste, but his voice being of the plaintive character, is hardly suited for a large con cert room. 'Bones' has' a taste for the comic, but although his performance is in finitely superior to that of the gentleman who figured under the name of Mr. Upson, his voice is not nearly so sweet. Seve ral ? boIos were performed on the banjo with exquisite sweetness ond taste, nnd elicited great applause. Of the Messrs. Howard it is almos...

When about half way round each time Little John appeared to be about three to four lengths ahead, but this space gradually closed whenever the horses came to the falling ground. Owing to the scrubby nature of the country it was impossible to see the race for a considerable portion of the distance, but when they hove in sight Little John kept his position. They rattled in at a terrific pace, the chesnut taking the heat by a clear length. The second heat was similar in all respetts to the first, except that Little...

French Fspionage. — The Messager de la Semaine relates the following anecdote : — 'On Wednesday last a member of the Mountain, who has made himself remark able by his eccentric conduct, arrived at the Assembly in a state of great agitation. He met one of the Ministers in the lobby, and. addressing him in an abrupt and familiar manner, talked to him of the patience, calmness, and noble attitude of the paople, who mistrust the provokers of civil -war. ' It nevertheless appears,' replied the Minister, 'that. you occupy yourself with civil wir.' 'What do you' mean ?' asked the Montagnard. ' Gertainly you do,' said the Minister ;' whence do you come at this moment?' 'From my place,' said the Montagnard, rather em barraaed.
