AMATEUR PERFORMANCE. -4---- On Monday evening a performance took place at tile Atllentum Hall, and there was a largo and nppreciative audience. The fltst piece on the programme being the farce of "Kiss in the Dark," the part of '" Pottibone" being well played by Mr O. lnamen, who was very amusing as the jealous husband and received great applnuse. Mr Howard as "Frank Fathom" also did well, playing easily, and making the hits tIl. As " Mrs Pettibone" Miss Wright, and Miss Simpson as " Mary" contributed murch to the success of the piece, which was not allowed to flag for one moment from commenceonet to finish. and it was well received throughout. After the Sareo Mr T. Cronin gave thu "Ghost" in Ilamlet, and for an Amateur certainly rendered the words far above our expectations, and doubtless we shall see more of this gentleman.

D'soussing the future of the Ottomant, Dr Newman said :-" Pledgtce by the very principls of their existence to barbarism, the Turks have to cope with civilised Government all around them, ever advancing in the material and moral strength which civilisa'ion gives, and ever feeling more vividly that the Turks are simply in the way. They are in tile way of the progress of tile nineteenth century ; they are In the way of the Russians. who wish to ret into the Mediterranean ; they are in the way of the English, who wish to cross to the East; they are in the way of the French. who from the Crusades to Napoleon have fLlt a romantic interest in Syria ; they are in tie way of the Austrians, their hereditary foes. .

AGHJOULTURAL NO'T'ES. FARtb WORK FOR MAY. AIunnAaM LtNCoot0 's MONTHLY RProRT. The late rains have been most seasonallo for the farmer, and sowing operations ought to proceed without interruption. Since March the weather has been all a farmer could wish for, and if the laln be in bad heart, or the seed-bed in bad condition, it is his own fault. Good and Pure eoed.-Almnost the only difficulty growers have to contend against is the scarcity of good and pure seed, both of grain an I grasses. This diflculty appears to increase every year, and will continue to do so unless the system of estiblislling seed-farms, which I recommnendedid m y years since, be adopted. Nearly all the grass-seeds now forwarded to market are the produce of mixed pasture., and witll the present imperfect appliances it is imlpossible to separate the different sorts. Although growers usually purchase and sow differ. ent grasses and clovers together, they prefer buying each sott separately, as tlhey thehn know what ...

Michael Barrington, a farmer at Monee Ponds, wits charged on summons with having maltreated a horso on the 24th ult. upon the Heidelberg-road. The pro. secution was conducted by Ar Wrixon on behalf of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and ir F. L. Smyth appeared for the accused. On the day mentioned the defendant was driving a horse and dray with a heavy load of hay to Heidel berg, and when ascending the incline on the road at Mount Eagle the wheels of the dray stuck amongst a qua ,tity of recently laid road metal. The horse had been once a powerful animal, but old age and starvation had reduced hint to a very feeble condition, and ho now proved quite unable to pull the dray through the obstruction.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 4 May 1878

MELBOURNE LETfER. (PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDRNT.) The Parliamentary interregnum is passing over very quietly, so far as lolitical movements of any kind are concerned, and the only consideration which must make us pauao is whether the present ominous quietude is not the calm which proverbially precedes the storm. Feelers are now being cau tiously put out to ascertain how the majority in the Assembly would regard a dissolution in the event of the Council throwing out the Ministerial Reform Bill, to which the attention of the Legislature will be, according to iMr Berry, exclusively directed during the ensuing session. To ordinary observers a dissolution would appear to be inevit able in the above contingency, but of course it is not palatable to the Minis terial folloting, and strong efforts will be made to evade it. The principles of the Reform Bill itself are not yet fixed .upon, but rhey are almost certain to be such as the Upper House will feel bound to resist, otherwise there is no ...
