Dear ~argaret,-The envelope in which this letter will be inclosed will have prepared you in some measure for the melancholy tidings which it is my painful duty to convey. Your poor dear father died suddenly on Monday evening, or, to speak more accurately, about a quarter past one o'clock on Tuesday morning. In him I have lost the best of husbands, and you the most loving of parents. I have been so heartbroken and bewildered, that I have been quite unable to write before now, and I really forgot even the existence of the telegraph.

That the blow will be a terrible one to you, I cannot doubt-as it has been to me ; but we must try not to forget that we are always in the hands of One who ordains all these afflictions for our ultimate good.

Stratford folks are anxious for a line direct from Sale, and their maxim is that they miust hove it in spite of everything; the line then to Briagolong, of course, would be out of the question, as the country on one side would not feed hares, and similar land is to he found a mile deep on the other, whilst a tract, unequalled for its grazing and agricultural results, is out off entirely fr...
