The Governor on Betting. THE « Western Independent5 says,-Those who take an interest in big race meetings have douMess frequently heard that Sir Hercules Robinson,,won this on such a race, and a very large sum on another, and so on. In a letter to M^plirfax-oa the subject of horse-racing, the ^.^piwmS^thujI delivers himself with respect to |íftá^)irin§:-Ido not myself think it wrong for - Owner to back his horse when he thinks ÍífeiSpT- Eut 1 nave> nevertheless, abstained from backing my horses since I have been here, sino^y to present my name being quoted by the p alish youths who dabble in what they do not understand, and who, when they lose, as they sari sure to do, would seek to excuse their folly by the pretence that they were led away by the bad example of the G-oyernor.

Woodburn. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] October 9th. I must plead scarcity of news for not writing of late, and as some of your readers may imagine me defunct, I will endeavour to make up ' for lost time. The farmers are very busy with their cane, either preparing to commence crush ing, others cutting, or just finished. Messrs; "Woodford and Poólinan are making some very good sugar, some of our neighbours have gone ?o far indeed as to say it is equal to Maritius. Mr. Meston has only recently started, being delayed through the breakage of some of his machinery, which necessitated his being obliged to send to Sydney for other to replace the broken. I am glad to say that when I paid a visit to the Mill last Saturday, all appeared to mo to be in capital working order. I also saw some juice from cane grown on Mr. Eobert Gollan's farm, giving ll degrees (Beaume), which speaks remarkably well for the soil in which the cane was grown ; in another week or two, I -will speak of the quality of the...

Shade Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 October 1876
Shade Trees. THE Ech o, October 5th says,-The heat of the sun is already beginning to be experienced by ¡ pedestrians who traverse the streets of the city, ; and for some time each succeeding month will in all probability bring an increase in the in tensity of that heat. At midday already foot passengers begin to choose what, in comparison, may be called the shady side of the street ; but even then, the eye is not relieved wholly from the effects of the sunglare around. How the perspiring traveller wishes for the refreshing shelter of green and umbrageous trees, such as those which are to be found ranged in avenues along the streets in many of the cities on the Continent of Europe and in America. How envious it makes one to read the following, from the graphic pen of the correspondent of the Herald, who is now writing from the United States under the signature of "N.S. W. " ** Upon their arrival at Buffalo, the party were met by the principal inhabitants, and fifty carriages were so...

To the Editor of the " Northern Star.11 ;SiR,r-r According to your last issue I see that there has been two men at Ballina fined for cruelty to animals, at the instance of this ex cellent Society.

A ^Gladstone correspondent-sends- io the Mar,y hnroufki Chronicle t\iQ following contribution to the study of the properties and lises of our native timbers :--As thé * hardwood timber of our distict is being brought into use, both" for railvravf. and bridge building, a few remarks respecting the timber may not be out of place. Great things were expected from thé Beyal Commission that sat some two years ago," but with the exception of examining a few, mill owners and lumberers, and bringing up a report, nothingjhas been doue, and, unfortunately, tho3e examined knew nothing about the growth of timber or its dualities. The removing of an old building in Gladstone could have shown-the committee^ more than all the evidence put to gether. Thebuilding was composed of ironbark, red gum, and spotted gum, snlit and sawn. The timber was cut in 1855. The ironbark is still sound, no sign of decay, and the spotted gum. is better than the day it was cut...

Restorative Effects of the Guca Leaf. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 October 1876
Restorative Effect3 of the Guca Leaf. AT a meeting of the Edinburgh Botanical Society a paper was read by Sir Eobert Christison on the restorative effects of the cuca leaf of Peru (Erythroxylon coca), which has for many years been valued by the Indians as a preventive of bodily fatigue, and which has lately attracted much attention owiug to a, belief that it was of some service to the American pedestrian, Mr. Weston, on the occasion of some of his walking feats at the Agricultural Hall. A diversity of opinion exists as to the effect of the cuca jeaf on those who chew it. By some travellers it is maintained to be a pernicious stimulant, while others hold the opinion that moderately used it is beneficial to health. Of its effects Sir Eobert Christison gave an account ascertained by ex periments he had made himself with a cuca leaf, by which he had found that it was a preventive of fatigue, and a restorative of strength after severe bodily exertion, and that it had no reactionary effec...
