THE AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN ON THEIR WAY HOME. The following letter has been received by the Sporting Editor of this journal : — R.M.S,S. Assam, Point d'u Gallu, April 2, 1882. ? In accordance with my promise, I jot down a few lines to let you know how we have been getting on since leaving the Wil- ' Hamstown pier on Thursday, 16th March, at 1 p.m. Not long after passing through tho Heads several of our fellows were in. the agonies of sea sickness, and moat of them remained in that miserable condition until Adelaide wus reached. Casting anchor a few hundred yards off the Glenelg pier, the Assam stopped in that spot for fully six hours, and thus afforded us an opportunity to have a fair spell oji shore. Several pro miaeiit Adelaide cricketers came out in the tender to meet us, and soon we were, to our great satisfaction, on mother earth again. Travelling up to Adelaide by rail from Glenelg in very cool and comfortable car riages, which might well be copied iu Vic toria, we were, by the kin...

PRESENTATION AT WALLI [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 27 May 1882

PRESENTATION AT WALLI Water being extremely scarce at Walli, many of the residents during the recent summer, would have had some difficulty in obtaining sufficient for household purposes, had not one who had chance to have made more provision than the rest come to the rescue. This one was Mr Isaac Carter, who not only allowed his neighbours to supply themselves from his tank for household use, but permitted those, that required it, to take sufficient to keep the steamer going during thrashing. In return it was decided among those wlio had availed themselves of Mr. Carter's kindness to present that gentleman with some suitable token of thankfulness and esteem. Accordingly a beautifully bound Family Bible, quarto sire, with rims and clasp, and illustrated with coloured plates, was purchased from Mr W. J. Norwood, the well known bookseller of Bathurst for that purpose, and on Queen's Birthday, the sub scribers invited Mr Carter to meet them, when Mr Wilson at the request of the chair m...

A man, named Thomas Biiggs, and described as a bushmin, came to Sydney from Bourke about three weeks ago, and put up at the Whit j Conduit Hotel, where lie drank so heavily, wore ao many clothes, and dined so well, that he died on Tuesday from 'exhaustion, caused by excessive drinking.' Mrs. Dixon, the wife of the landlord (Matthew Dixon — it is better to give his name in full) changed no fewer than three cheques for the deceased during the short time he was staying at the hotel, for £5, £10, and XI 5 ; and at 10 o'clock on Monday morning, after Biiggs had died, eho went to the Commercial Bank with another of deceased's cheques, this time for £100, but the cashier declined to pay until he saw deceased.

ROW SNAKES MULTIPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 27 May 1882

HOW SNAKES MULTIPLY. A few days ago (says the ' Border Watch ' of April 26), while quarrying dolomite in Mrs. Barry's section at Coiiipton, Mr. James Marks, who is an amateur naturalist, made a discovery which creatlv interested him In a cosy bed underneath a large stone he found 45 snake eggs, each of which contained a young snake. The eggs were as large as those of pigeons, but -were more spherical. The shell or covering was white and tough almost like bookbinders' prepared sheepskin, and the eggs were all united together, some what like a bunch of grapes. On opening several of the eggs with a knife, he found that each contained a live snake beautifully coiled np. The manner in which they were coiled may be inferred from the fact that, whilst their thickness was about that of a clay pipostem, the length of each was 8 J inches. Tlie reptiles (which, although of the black species, were as yet of a light colour) were lively, and protruded their tongues when the eggs were opened— a fa...

Act ing on his doctors advice he 'wears a very uum uiud |juu ui. giusttee, wmcu spreous a* sombre gloom over everything. He fell madly in love with a neighbour's daughter, a wild roguish girl, full of fun and frolic, and fond of practical jokes. To her he proposed marriage, and after some delay he was ac cepted. The wedding took place ou a dull day, and the inside of the church was as dark as the soul of an infidel, and the bridegroom could see about as much as .man in a good Melbourne fog. During .the ceremony there was considerable tittering amongst tho audience, and the minister himself seemed perplexed. However, the ceremony ended, and tho happy pair adjourned to their carriage. Eemoving his glasses to dry his moistened eyes, he found to his horror that he had been sold, and had actually married one of his black s...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 27 May 1882

ODDS AND ENDS. (Compiled from our Exchanges.) As showing to some extent the losses which stock-owners will have to face tin's year, one gentleman infoi ms the ' Forbes Times' that with a favourable season ho would have shorn 25,000 sheep next shearing time, whereaR now he does not expect to shear as many hundreds. He says that ' no grass' has not only meant no clip, no fat stock, and no increase, but that it has decimated the number of sheep, which in fair seasons, are kept upon the run. Even stud rams for which top prices were paid have succumbed to the starvation diet, as it was impossible to find food for them. Cattle have died off altogether, horses ditto and the only animals which peem to thrive amongst so much misery are the crows. Our informant (says the ' Times ') estimates his losses by the drought at £15,000, auri he says he is no worse off tLan scores of I) is neighbours.

MOUNT MACQUARIE. FEOM OUR CORRESPONDENT. Frequent and copious showers have fallen. The soil is now in capital condition for ploughing.
