IIAIRNSI)ALE RIFLE CLUB. Thile competition for the Payne pro sentation cup was finished off yesterday afternoon, and, as was expected at an early stage, it Ihas fallen to J.

Several members who had been unfortunate early in tie competition relired, and but seven showed up at the finish. It would be more satisfactory td the donor to have a stronger team and a heavier fight for the cup, but, until the members arce olassified orhandicnpped, the dislhoarton ing effects of greant inequality in skill canlnot but prodluce a corresponding defection in the attendance at prize shooting.

OUR SANDY'S CREEK LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Saturday, April 8. Who is the genius who supplied the Weekly Times with its information re garding the Ironbark or Dinner Creek diggings. He says, "That a very valu able find of quartz has been discovered   near the Ironbark Creek, which forms a junction with the Tambo River." He then goes on to say, "The sinking is middling coarse, and goes from two grains to a quarter of an ounce to the dish. The gold is obtained by puddling and sluicing," and "the Tambo River is up stream; and, he might have added, " the Tambo digginigs are are up a hoppole." I extracted the above report and two pounds of butter from an old number of the periodical referred to, and am constrained to say, the butter was the most interesting article the sheet contained. I am glad to be able to chronicle the break up of the drought in this part. It has been raining intermittently since Sunday, and every appearance of con tinuing. There is a percept...
