(Fromn the Guardiat.) We have receireda private letter by the Clarense from Mr. T. W. Wills, (son of the late Mr. H. S. Wills) of Cullinguringe. Ctler grief and horror at the dreadful occurrence which took place during his absence, his first thought was for tile future. So far, he ayg, the sheep (10.000) are nearly all right, but unless additional Native Polie be forwarded, it will be imposible to get hands to work the station.

They have never been' tested by any great dificulty, any great danger, aiij grest calamity ; they have never:tbeen'called'upon for WJIy tatB?lhned elort, any serious sacrifices, any prolonged endurance.

Jenkins' wrath against the blacks is skin Or cloth, will make his coffers thin, 'Twill show isim in his colours true And make his readers still more few. He'll slay himself in naiveti, And then a ghostly witnesn bh.
