The people of Melbourne are a gay, holik dayluvingfi. people. :Races, pie-nics, balls,, trips byland and :.water, 'and every con- ceivablue xcuse.is legitimate for putting on the best attire and keeping holiday. The regittfi on the Yurra was 'the last invention. Not being much of a nnutical man, I can not, speak of the merit of the various races,.. biut judging by the cheering, howling, shouring, and wild excitement of the thou.. 'steils who lined the banks of the Yurra from Princo's bridge to Hawthorn bridge, the races must have been remarkably good. At the winning point at Hawthorn bridge there wasi a largo assembly, with all the oldest and latest inventions for picking up fiats.. The three-card triick of courso was there. One soft ,reeu looking young man got done out of LL1 in a very short space of time whilst I tiood looking on., Why not stop him, some one may say.

Correspondence. ( To the Editor.) Sir--As the columns of your valuable and enterprising journal are ever open to the public for ventilating any particular local subject, I have taken the liberty to address you upon an aflair that puzzles many wiser heads than mine. In the present crusade throughout the Shire of Alexandra amongst places where grog and ale are sold without the necessary license, it has invariably hap- pened that only the ale of the Eagle Brewery, Glen Creek, has been seized, while the ven- dors of the Lion Brewery ale, Alexandra, (in some instances in an adjoining house), sell away without being disturbed. I have heard that the comlmon informer has been in places where there were casks upon casks of Alexandra beer, and that no notice was taken of the matter. Perhaps you, Sir, in the magnitude of your editorial wisdom, can   tell how this happens. I am, Sir, &c., FAIR PLAY. P.S.--While I was writing the above, my mate Dick wras looking over my shou...

Reading of and discussing such a theory as this is not, of course, as amusing or exciting as the perusal of light literature or the study of pollices. but it is of more Importanco than the one, and of equal importance with the other. Melbourne Herald, lst Mauch. 1870. If the facts are as stated by Dr Beaney, he de.. serves the thanks of the community for drawing the attention of the faculty to the matter, as the change from the present practice of vaccination will not untail any further trouble or expense.
