ANOTHER VOLUNTEER GROWL. Thehe lias been probably no body of men in. this colony so well mid so consi'autly snubbed as ilic volunteers. They liavc bceix ridiculed at public dinners, sneered at by members in the .House, damned with faint praise by the press, and lastty, they have been totally ignored by the Government that has called them into existence.

WILLASTON. LAYING FOUNDATION STONE OF A NEW SCHOOL-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 June 1865
WILLASTON, I.AYIXO FOUNDATION1 STOXE OF A 3TEW SCHOOL-HOUSE. Ox the 22nd of May Ave expected to have seen some demonstration by the inhabi tants of this township, in consequence of laying the foundation stone of oue of its first publie buildings — viz., the Willaston school ; but it seemed that even the at traction of the Hon. Speaker of the House of Assembly and the influence of their local M.P. (Mr. Briglii), failed to arouse the apathy of the citizeus of this thriving township, as there were not more than a dpzen Willaston spectators present- at. the abo\Te interesting ceremony. A few Gawlerites, including the representatiA-es of the Press, Mr. W.

GRAIN MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 June 1865
G-R-A1N MARKET The past week has loon unusually dull, ow ing no doubt to the very favourable weather for farming operations preventing fanners from carting wheat to market. TLore has been no.. sales of wheat to any extent, and the few small loads which have come in were sold at from 3d. to -!d. less than our last quotations. The re peated arrivals of vessels giiisn laden from Chili into the neighbouring colonies has pre vented much business being done on 'Change Speculators are afraid to touch either wheat or Hour ; and, seeing that the farmers are the principal holders, and they being bad specu lators (often rushing to tho market and causing a fall when there, is i:.o occasion for it), we cannot hold out any hopes of much belter prices being maintained for the remainder of tho season.

EAILWAY OEIEVANCES. TO THK EDITOR. Sir, — I shall feel obliged if you will again call the attention of tho railway authorities to the fact tliat parcels arriving by tho evening trains are not delivered until the following morning, thereby causing great annoyance, and also, in many iastances, considerable loss, as coods of a perishable kind are utterlv useless when delivered next day at ten or eleven o'clock. I may also state another grievance in con nection with parcels. You receive parcels from Adelaide delivered fr«o in Gawler; but if yon want to send one by tho same conveyance yon sire charged 6d. extra, merely for carriage to the station. Some of our local niembsrs of Parliament might make inquiries concerning this gross injustice, and I have no doubt it would soon be remedied. Yours, &c, TRADESMAN.
