[Pastoral Times Cnrresrondeut.f Goon Feed, but No Katioxs. — I wrote you in my last that the drought bad broken up in this district, and I am happy to fiud my first impression con fiimed that the rain had been general. The whole a-pect of the country has undergone a pleasing change, and as the country here is generally of the best description for pastoral purposes, and the greaier number of runs very lighciy stocked, you can imagine everything in tbe shape of stock begin - mng to loon well aaa'n. However, 1 may say of the Warrego as Ma'k T«pley said of Eden,' this is a fine pla'.-e to be j-J!y in,' for now that our fears are removed with regard to the stock being starved. we have the pleasing piospect before us of being starved ourselves. Several stations on this river have been-quite out of Sour, tea, and sugar for some iime, a;td »he conftimjition of por ullac, alias pier weed, and wild spinach, has been great, but fortu nately not greater tban the supply.

PRACTICAL EENIANISM.—HOW TO GIVE THE IRISH PEOPLE A REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 April 1866

PRACTICAL EENIANISM.— HOW TO GIVE THK IRISH PEOPLE A REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT. [From the Neio York Herald] The British press believes that the Fenian move ment has had sufficient effect upon the Irish people to render them for many years even more discon tented and uneasy than they bad previously beeu under the harsh laws and bad government of Great Britain. This is doubtless true, and there is evi dence of the extensive workings of the agitatiou among the people in the proclamation of martial law in so many cities. Measures of that nature are not adopted against movements of which the Govern ment has no fear. But there is danger that, unless wisely directed at ths present time, Fenianism nsay do little else for the Irish people than to render them thus chronically uneasy and discontented, and to bring down upon them intermittent proclamations of martial law, to be used as a more convenient, means of oppression than any other that Government officials can hit up-jn. Wisely directed, ho...

THE RIVERINE DISTRICTS. » ?- - WENTWOKTH, March 24. [Pastoral Times Correspondent.] The Season. — The weather since my last has afforded us some variety — ilternately sunshine, clouds, and evidences of coming rain ; evenings and mornings cool, sometimes, from the southerly wind, quite & Id. One morning the tbermomtter stood at 58, in the shade of course, at 9 a.m. — too great a change for odc's health or comfoit ; but such are some of the ills flesh is heir to, and must be borne. Yesterday, however, rain fell for a few hours, steady but not heavy — a blessing rarely bestowed on \\ enf worth, but. unfortunately, vouchsafed with tonfnirral a hand to do much good. It will f.eshen up the saltbush which, has got a start. A strange comrast must exist just now between this place and Menind-e in reference to feed, here there is nothing, compara tively nothing, for miles around — even goats' can scarcely find a subsistence — consequently butter is a thing not known, milk to the m jon...

HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 April 1866

HAY. [Pastoral Times Correspondent.] On Thursday last, a little after 7 o'clock in the evening, a storm, which lasted about a quarter of an hour, accompanied with rain, passed over Hay. It   had been threatening throughout the day, but the clouds kept at a considerable elevation, indicating that we would not have a deluge. About 11 o'clock   on Thursday a smart shower fell, but unless it was of longer continuance throughout the district its benefits will be but trifling. Sunday was very sultry, and on Monday a hot blast from the north blew the most of the day. Where the wet has not been sufficient to create a supply of new grass the late rains have been detrimental. The old grass, which was dried to a chip, has been battered into the ground or pelted into powder, and no substitute has   been created. There are few runs, however, without their belts of fresh grass, and on the Lachlan back     country the native oats and...
