TRANSVAAL WAS. GRAVE SITUATION. i The situation in South Airiest completely engrosses public at- tention throughout the United Kingdom, where the series of British reverses have had the effect of arousing the patriotic fealings of the people. The ex- citement is, probably, more marked and intense than anything; the British public has experienced since the early years of the clos- ing century. " The Times " comments upon, the extreme gravity of the mili- tary position, and points out that both Lieutenant-General Lord Methuen and General Sir Red- vers H. Buller are unfortunately situated. Lord Methuen is, says "The Times." unable to advance to either Kimberley (2'i miles dis- tant or to Jacobsdal (i> miles), or withdraw to Orange River Station. (04 miles) : and General Buller, in Natal, is unable to attempt ai turning movemeut owing to the I -want ot* transport.

A Poets Grave. For (lie Hawkesbury Advocate. I AM very far from being a melan- choly man, but have ever hada strong likeing to visit grave yards, and read the inscription upon the tombs and to meditate upon the lives and time of those whose bodies rest beneath them. I have in young days made collections of such inscriptions, and published them from time to time, sometimes for j amusement, for many of those of the last centuary in the country parts of England, were of a most humorous nature, not perhaps in- tendedly so written, buc just to suit the rhyming capabilities of the writers. For instauce, in the church , yard of Hathersage, in Derbyshire, j you can read Here lies two children dear, j The one at 6toney Middleton, th'other here.

LEET S VALE. Mr. H. A. Singleton's contract of forming the road between Mr. N. J. Douglas's and Mr. W. Rein's properties is rapidly progressing. We are compelled to hold over a description of the orchards around Leet's Vale, including those belonging to Messrs. M. J. and M. E. Chaseling. These, with other river notes, will appear in our next issue. Mr. John Liddy can boast of having one of the best little or- chards in the district, and one that is well looked after. At the present time he has something like GOO stone fruit and 100 citrus fruit trees in bearing. The ground is evidently adapted for stone fruit, for the trees are of enor- mous size, and one in particular measures 38 feet across, is over 25 feet high, and is 4 feet round the trunk near the ground. The tree in question is an. apricot, from which Mr. Liddy took ll gin cases of fruit, which will take a lot of beating. Besides orchard land Mr. Liddy has a large acre- age in with maize and other crops, all of which look ver...
