H.ilaoivor has written on the subject io the Chemical JVeiiw, vol. - Ivii., p. 25, pointing out the causes of this, one of them being the practice of burning the straw instead of returning it to the soil as we do after it has done its work an litter [or cattle and liorses. I refer particularly to this, as such wastefulness is not peculiar to Aus tralia. Ignorant gardeners and ignorant farmers burn the weeds they remove from the soil, and in doing so cast all the ammonia they contain into the air, and then purchase guano imported from tlie other side of the world to replace the loss. If these weeds were properly stacked aud sufficiently rotted to destroy, the fertility of their seeds they would, when returned to the -soil, constitute the host of all possible manures, because they return to the soil juBt ...

Camden Havea Races. The above races took place on Friday and Saturday, the 28th and 29th ult, and were witnessed on tho first day by about two hundred and fifty people, whilst the attend ance ou the second day was very meagre. In fact it is now apparent that a mistake was made in arranging for a two days meet ing. The weather was beautifully fine, and tlie course was in middling order; and altogether the races just terminated might be considen d equal to any that have yet taken place at Camden Haven.
