THE PIC-NIC.

To the Editor of The Herald.? SIR, I thank you for your kindness in inserting my letter in the Herald of the 7th ult., on the: subject of early closing ; may I again ask that you will be good enough to afford a little space in your issue of this week for a few additional remarks on this movement set on foot by the assistants employed in the different stores of Fremantle, for the purpose of inducing their employers to shorten the hours of business, by closing at 6 o'clock in the evening. There was every reason to believe that any further appeal would be unnecessary, as all the employers (with only one exception) unanimously agreed to grant the prayer of the Petitioners. Mrs. M. Higham is the only storekeeper that re fuses to fall in with this arrangement, but on what grounds it is impossible to conceive, for it is strange indeed that she should be so dis inclined to adopt a system which would in every way be equally beneficial to herself. Surely every employer ought to study, to some...

[5 t'atlitjan + _ Partingtonia.-"There is one thing very sure," said Mrs. Partington ; the females of the pre sent generation are a heap more independent than they need.to be. Why, I saw a gal go by the other day that I know belongs to the histor ical class of society, with her dress all tucked up, her hair all buzzled up like if she hadn't time to .comb it foria week, and one of her grandmother's nightcaps, in awful crumpled condition, on her head. Why, law, honey, when I was a gal if one of the fellows came along when I had my clothes tucked up that way, *and my head co vered with a white rag, I would run for dear life to get out of sight. Well, well the gals then were innocent, unconfiscated creatures; now;, they. are what the French call 'blazes.'

The. weekly papers teem with reports from other parts of the Colony, but the Eastern Districts are left unnoticed, which besides being galling gives us the air of insignificance, especially when we claim for our District paramount im portance, and all the distinctions of extent, opu lence, industry, and intelligence.
