VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
VICTORIA. The farmers resident in the valley of the Leigh have been suffiring severely from the encroachment of the rust and caterpillar. Mr. Wall, of Bonshaw, informs the Balla rat Star that the whole of his wheat crop has been destroyed, and will be of no use, at all except as straw or inferior hay:" The Kynetosn Observer, speaking of the harvest says:-" The rust is making fearful havoc in this district; crops that, bulint a few weeks since, promised to yield fiom forty to fifty bushels to the aner, are now scarcely worth cutting; in fact, some of our farmers have given up all hope of doing anything with them. The caterpillar has also been very busy at work for some time, and there is every reason to believe the farmers in this district will suffer greatly." An interesting comparative statement of theo rainfall at 1Melbourneuo during the last gix 3 ears..has been published, from the ob servations taken at the Observatory.

Gray eame off on Saturday evening last at ,O'Toole's Beehive Inn; and although some citcumstances, which we need not detail, occurred to render the demonstra tion less perfect -and satisfactory than it might have been, the numbers of the assembly and the feeling displayed cer tainly left no room for complaint that the electors of Kiama were indifferent to the claim upon their gratitude, which the, services of an able and faithful represon ,tative must be allowed to have. The affair took point in the large room of the Beehive Inn, the only suitable apartment in Kiama which was at that time available for the purpose. The room was filled well enough to make the company wish it larger, as the day had been very warm, and the sun was still in the sky at the hour appointed for the meeting (6i o'clock.) The house within and without. was decorated with flags and evergreens; and the tab...
