Gentlemen-Your tetter of the I Uh instant was for- warded to me nt this place, which-it reached only yes- terday. I feel a deep sense of the honour which 'you have conferred upon me by inviting me to be present at , so interesting and memorable a Festival as that which \ is fixed for the sixth of August next; but my arrange- 1 ments for the next six weeks, fixed long beforehand, ] render it impossible for me to enjoy the gratification : which you have so kindly proffered me. Be assured that ; my heart, however, will be a silent and invisible, bnt a \ reverential guest among yon ; for the genius of Robert ' Burns has long held absolute sway over my best feelings. ; I have for many years been convinced that his taste is 1 the purest, his feelings are the freshest, and bis percep- tions the quickest, by whom the inimitable songs and poems of Burns, your great poet, are best appreciated.

PARKHURST BOYS.-A requisition, which is lying at present at the Bank of South Australia, is in course of signature, calling a public meet- ing at Messrs Lambert and Son's rooms, on Tuesday next, for the purpose of adopting a memorial to the Home Government. We trust that the meeting may be so well attended, and so unanimous, that thero may be no mistake or misunderstanding in future as to the opinion of the colonists. Since the above was in type, the requisition has been forwarded to us, and appears with a few of the signatures in our advertising columns. THE LATE RACES.-We understand that the celebrated mare " Matilda,*' the race for the Town Plate, and the stakes depending thereon, ate likely to form the subject of a neck-and. neck, mouth and-moulh, wig-and-wig conten- tion in the forensic field. The cause of con- troversy is similar to that in the " Running Rein" case, lately tried in London, it being alleged that "the mare" is older than four years. The stewards have been served...

Chapman, William Leigh, Edmund Rice, R. A. Slaney, George Davenport, Neill Malcolm, and Hananel DeCastro, toge! her with Lord Stanley's answer, of date 6th September. We are sorry that we have been unable to find room for these documents, but this is of the less consequence, as there is nothing new in the state- ments and arguments of the memorial, which founds the claims upon the Act of Parliament, the appro- priation of the emigration funds contrary to the terms of that act, the resolution of the select com- mittee on South Australia, and the recommendation of the Lords of the Treasury. The memorialists mention that some of them had bought land, with the view of sending out laborers from their estates, and they pray that a sum equal to the purchase money of their lands may, i...
