A despatch from Lord Roberts, dated Tuesday, the 17th inst, states that Lieut-Colonel E. H. Dalgety's force is still surrounded »t Wepener.

The prevailing violent storms and heavy rains are delaying the march of the rfilicJ forces, but LorJ Bober;s hopes that the columns will soon make their presence felt.

Books, While the duties of M.O. were carried out by Mr. 0. Tuckermau. Dancing and singing soon whiled away the hours to midnight, when an adjourn- ment was made to the dining room, where the table was groaning beneath tiie weight of the good things provided by the Worthy hostess, who extended a hearty welcome to all. After a hearty rote of thanks had been tendered to Mr. and Mrs. Johnstone, and ample justice done to the good things provided, dancing was again renewed with rigor till the wee ama' hours', when refreshments were again partaken of, after which all said farewell to their worthy host and hos- tess, to whom too much ...

Bubonic Plague Jottings. Dr. Haves, of Adelaide, who has left for India, via China, to Btudy the bubonic plague, is responsible * for the following opinions : The plague is not contagious. À person cannot frighten himself or herself into an attack. ' The matter used in inoculation is 16 times as viriient in its effects as vaccination. Inoculation brings on a slight at- tack of plague. ? Results in other countries, India, China, etc, prove that inoculation is effective.

*~-. .--f ' f Sheep at the Show, \ > » > ^^J^yal-Agricoltaral Show iii * mj^é^âè' be the great annual exhalion of the wealth and in* dustéîéif of* the colony. Never- theless? the greatest of oar indu»» tries, oat" staple products is not represented at all. A few Btray sheep are shown by the Depart- ment of Agriculture, and a few samples of wool by the different competing District Societies; these only serve to emphasise the incontinuity of the fact. The Sheepbreeders Association, of coursa, have a grand show of nothing but sheep in June each year, and ii seems a pity that some arrangment could not be made whereby the latter should not be incorporated as part and parcel of the former. It would need to be held at the same time, and at the same localiiy as the ' R.A. Show, and it is hardly pos- sible that there are any insuper- able obstacles to the innovation ; such a change would increase the popularity of both exhibitioner, and serve to rectify a very remark- able anomoly.
