The town ship is nearly empty, but it is satisfactory to know that there are no men out of work ; all the absentees have left their families here while they are earning a living by road making, fencing, carrying, and in other ways. so things will soon look up again. — Except those who are away, the farmers have generally finished sowing.— The carelessness (resulting in cruelty) in trucking cattle complained of last year is still exhibited ; a drover with a beast down and six others treading on the animal wanted to take the truck on, but the etationmaster properly refused to allow him to do so.
