CASTLE HILL. (Fboh que Cobeesponbeni.) Desolation. The Castle Hill district presents a very desolate appearance. The roads are covered with a very fine dust folly six inohes deep, which rises in great blinding clouds under the wheels of vehicles, or at every breeze. The orange trees look vertL blighted and withered, on account of^p heavy frosts and want of moiatare — many, of them having been frost-bitten. Epen weeds won't grow at all owing to le exces sively dry weather. To complete the scene of desolation and stagnation, the paddocks round about have lately been burned off, and hill and dale present a black, dreary appearance. And the Church clock is still at a standstill. ...
