The lowing of sleek herds rose melodiously on the summer breeze; the smoke ourled gracefully bovoe the mnimy thlriviig homeisteads thiat studded this fertile valley; and -s sunny cheerful ness shone on the dountailance of, the contented and prospering settlers. Troops of happy and rosy children gamboled on the busy sward; the busy iousewives, by well ordered.industry, found time for the social visit; and the stalwai-t bushmen who owned these broad acies, after laying aside the axe they hadeso lustily plied all day, found both heart arid opportunity to blend their voices in harmonious concert, or join in the inspiriting dance.

The immediate occasion of .Ir. Edward Wil son's protest is the news that Lord Dal housie has been chartered by the Gover ment to convoy two or three hundred eonviets to Western Australia. MIr.

HORSE MARKE'T'. MIessrs. Burt and Co. report The market as overdone with country lots, the sales during the wCeek have exhibited five times the number of hIorses required. At tIhe same time, it is as well to remark tha butt few first-class horses are otlffering, the mojoritv ef the lots being of a mniddle descriptio; hcern and tlhere the Letter sorts have realised fair rates, but the averages have been very low, and caused nmuch disaplp~ointment to the sellers.

For town use tihe demands are for wvell-broken horses, with style and condition, suited to rid...
