GARDENERS' AND FARMERS' CALENDER. AUGUST. [Augst in Australia corresponds to February in Great Britain.] KITCHEN GARDEN. - Attend to Cu cumber Frames; fresh lining, if required, to keep up a regular beat.. Hoeing, _ i ~? blanching, forcing and earthing ?'?, and' destroying slugs,. &c., should occupy your main attention this month. Keep the weeds under. Asparagus.-Towards the end of the month, the top dressing should be partly removed, and dug in between the bec.s, carefully forking between the rows, so as not to damage the roots or crowns. Where the beds have not been top-dressed, give some Guano water, or sprinkle the beds with a little salt, this is exceedingly beneficial for establishing plants. Onions.-Sow full crops of these, and plant out from beds already fit to thin. Carrots, Beet Root, Salsify and Chicory should be sown in full crops, in rows, fifteen inches apart. Sowing in drills greatly facilitates the operation of thiri ning, weeding, hoeing, and stirring the so...

Notice to Correspondents. The number of onr correspondents, and s desire to maintain our character for :ourtesy towards those who favour us with communications for publication, offering suggestions, or seeking informa tion, renders it necessary to open a column for the purpose of returning nnswers in order to save postage, and give our readers the benefit of the an swers which are often of general interest.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 21 August 1863
WmHTHER it is the intention of the present Government to attempt a retrenchment by weeding the Civil Service or no, they will be compelled to do it from necessity, in fact their safety depends to some extent upon the operation. One of the, most effective cries ever raised in opposition to a Government, is that of the injustice 6f excessive taxation; it ap peals to the feelings 'of men who would hear with unconcern that religious freedom no longer existed--that a sort of inquisition had superseded trial by jury-in fact it ap peals to all those whose hearts can only be reached through their-pockets. The reason is obvious, and it accounts for the great excitement produced in Englanc by the agitation for Financial Reform about the year 1847. In England the taxation was, and is pretty high, but the extensive ma chinery of the Government, the Army and Navy, and expensive Diplomacy and Police, are necessary to watch over and protect the immense and varied interests of the nation; that end ...
To the Editor of the McIvor Times. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 21 August 1863
To the Editor of the Mcevor Times,. Sir,-One of the indispensable essentials to constitute a practical Architcct, I always conceived to be, ability so to frame his specifications, as to arrive at an approximate estimate of the actual sum required to carry out his design. When Mr. Flannagan's design for our Town Hall was selected, I think I am not far wrong in stating, that its chief recom. mendation was the estimated cost of £2000 for its completion, 'T'here however appears to be a fearful difference between Mr. Flanagan's theoretic calculation of the cost of transferring his pretty picture into bricks: and morter, and W `" ' the practical fact, as ascertained by compe tent domputists. The one says £2000, the. other £4000, or thereabouts. So much for Mr. Flanagan's theoretic estimate of the aggregate. What of details ? French drains are required round the bnuldf?g, MIr. Crowle informs Mr, Flanagan they will cost £27, Mr. Flanagan says it is " twice too much, that he will give £15, a...

(To the Editor of the McIvor Times) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 21 August 1863
(To the Editor of the lcl?or' Times ) SIR,--Mr. Macgregor's proposition that miners should be allowed -n Elebtor's Right, on presentation of their Miners' Rights, was, I think, a very reasonable one indeed; for why, I would beg to ask, ought not he-who pays a direct tax of one pound per year to the State, for what may now be considered a very questionable privilege, namely, that of mining, be fairly entitled to the privileges of the franchise, when a M unicipal Ratepayer, who only pays a half-crown for the purpose of im proving, perhaps, the road before his own door, should be deemed a duly qualified votes for meambers of Parliament? Bat the truth is, the artful schemers who framed the Electoral Act, were minfluenced, in doing so, by the reflection that the in habitants of our towns had hiterto proven greater sticklers for Squatters' privileges than the miners, who, in fact, have always done their best to.overthrow the.monstrous land monopoly, by which the ruin of all classes here i...

TO MR. FURZE. Sin,-I admit that what is commonly called bounce has been extensively used in this country, and often with effect; but I consider it my duty to tell you that your various descriptions of bounce have no effect upon me : you tried bounce of a demonstrative character upon me when I returned from .New Zealand; I resented that in the only possible manner. You have tried literary bounce, and that has failed; you now try the bounce of intimi. dation. I have proved to you that you cannot openly insult me with impunity, and you have found out by this time that, with all your assistants, you cannot damage me in a pen and-paper fight; and I beg to tell you that you cannot frighten me with a libel " bogy." No week has passed since I returned from New Zealnd, but you have libelled me; I (do not comr plain of it, because it appears to please you and can do me no harm. tBut you have pretty freely circulated a report that you intend to enter an action for a libel, which you say is con...
