North's farm, which was cov ered by tbe recent flood, and which was planted with corn, has been ploughdd over again, and another crop of maize is coming on well, To the casual traveller up Webb's Creek, the mountain scenery is equal to anything to be found anywhere, whilst the people are the biggest hearted and most hospitable possible to find. The potato cropB at the top end of the Creek are being greatly affected by a small black fly, that bas quite recently made its appearance. In many eases the crops have been completely destroyed by this pest. During a visit up the Creek this week we had a look for the first time at the new bridge, recently built by...

FRIDAY, DEC&MUüR 22. 18'J'J, CHRISTMAS, 1899. THROUGHOUT the civilised world there is no time of the year more precious, more ea«ed, or more reverenced than Christmas Day. It is the period of the year to which all Christendom looks as the anni- versary day of the advent into the world of a light, a doctrine, a creed, which has entirely revolutionised : three continents, and has numer- able adherents in every quarter of the globe. In Europe, America and Australia one ceremony is re- cognised on the one day, which is at once a thanksgiving and a mani- festation ; while the numerous, though scattered, members of the beautiful religion, in Asia, in Africa, and in the various islands of the world, re-echo the rejoicings with equal fervour, equal un- animity, and equal thankfulness. Whether the Christian religion made the present day Christians what they are, or whether the fore- fathers of those people were so superior that they could recognise the beauty, the justice and the tru...
