THE 1HORNTON RICNIC. Br T.H.C. On Thursday,. 19th March, the Thorn ton annual picnic was held, and, as usual, proved an unmistakable success. It is now many years since the institution of the first picnic, and so successful was the result that it has ever since been followed up with zeal aqd energy, and no matter what other amusements are taking place, the picnic is never neglected or put aside.; in fact, for'months ahead it is looked forward to with' eager antici pations and .- regarded' as the principal event of the year. It involves no smrall amount of labor, for" coppers, boilers, seats, benches' and fables; all have to be arranged, besides many other incidentals which all take time and troible. All this is done the previous day, and every thing is put in perfect order and nothing left undone which would mar or impede "the progress of sport or gaiety of pic nickers. There is an old maxim. " Perseverance is cheerfulness," "negligence is con temptible," and by taking. the initial ...

St. John's Church of England. I 1 It is surprising the amount of r interest Anglican church matters p are creating in the State. Persons a hailing from Alexandra have been r fairly beseiged the last week im Mel- r bourne by inquirers anxious to know I how things are progressing As far as J we are able to learn, nothing fresh has t transpired in connection with the t trouble in Alexandra.' The Rev. Scott is still in possession and thei "other side " seem content with their lot. Though a great outcry has been 1 made against Mr. Scott for retaining 4 possession of the church,. latest ] information seems to indicate that he , is within his rights, as we have been., 1 informed that the authorities are not I disposed to force an entrance to the I church and have instructed those here not to do so. This seems somewhat absurd after all the stir made against the Rev. Mr. Scott. Last-week we stated that the church was consecrated.' This, we find, is' a mistake as no wooden buildings are ,,. c...

On Saturday night last, at about 12.30 o'clock, an nlarin of fire was raised in the town, and a number of people were awakened from their slumbers, whilst others had not yet retired, and on looking out into the night, could see the reflection of a large fire in the direction of the brick yards. ' On arrival at the place, it was seen that the conflagration was emerging from the residence of AMr. G. T. Hall, a five-roo?oed weather board house. By the time assistance arribed, the flames had secured a firm hold of the building, and several efforts were made to check the fire, but proved useless, and the building, with the whole of' it -contents were burnt to the ground. It appears that Mr. arid-Mrs Hall have not been residing in their home for two or three days, but at the residence of Mr. O; Payne,junr., and were quite unaware of the fire until Sunday morning. AMr Hall. visited his house on Friday last and found everything quite safe, and after locking the securely, did not visit the p...

To TE EDITOIlOF 7 E ,ANrDAaD. Sm,--Tho vote of sympathy with Mr. Scott, which was passed at the Upper Thorntop picnic, seems tohave given dire' offence in certain quarters. Now:.sir, let us imagine a man ?riding 'along the road, coming upon a big follow who has got?a little fellow down and is knoking spots off him. Would it not he perfcotly right for this man to remonstrate with the big fellow and show his sympathy for the little 'un.- This, I think, puts the 'ease. as regards the picnic incident. I have no intention of even attempting to traverse the whole case of the Bishop v. Scott, andt will only refer to the verdict of ex-com nmuocatlon. Vlhe Bihop, tookt offence at some remarks madeby Mr. Scott iii the Melbuurna Pres? h.before thk Synod. and called upon the latter toapologise.

Such s a law might do for Russia or the Orient,but not for Australia. As far' as possible I opposed, in the synod, the passing of such legislation, but the party of tyranny was too strong for me. The obnoxious clause reads as follows :-" Notwithstanding the pro visions of any act of s) nod, or of a,,y act of the Church Assembly of the Diocese of Melbourne, binding on this diocese, and in addition to the power contained in Act No. 8, 1878 (Ecclesiastical Offences Act), it shall be lawful for the bishop, whetevor, in his opinion, the interests of the parishioners shall seem to him to render such' actions necessary, to require, by ...
