Tho day of the Finbonrne race meeting was ushered in with all the appearance of wet weather, but after a slight shower or two which was just enough to lay the dust, the sun which had been hiding be- hind a thick bank of clouds issued forth, making all bright again. Everyone was up betimes ; some were to ride to the course and others drive. Amongst those who rode were young Dalrymple and Miss Seacombe, the latter attired in a dark green habit, than which, per- haps, nothing could have suited lier better. Eric, of course, was to drive his toam, and great waa the anguish amongst the remaining ladies when they saw Ida Fordyce assisted on to the box seat. These little attentions, which, perhaps, may seem nothing, aro not thought lightly of amongst single girl3 who fancy them- selves alighted when perhaps, as often happena, a married woman usurps what they regard aa their ri...

With regard to the Electoral Roll, I have received information that the Law Officers of the Crown and the Returning Officer for the Province "SEEso REASON TO DOUBT TnE LEGALITY OF AN ELECTION FOUNDED ON THE ELECTORAL BOIL AS IT NOW STANDS." This appears to me a cautious negative statement which amounts to nothing, and wnich would not carry any weight with a Court of Disputed Returns if the validity of the election be called in question. How ever, there is now no alternative for electors and candidates but to proceed. I am sure I need not remind the ele...

Why ia it that tuc pear, more than other spur-bearing iruit trees, ebould be supposed to require SJ cloEe and continued pruning, does not appear of eaEy explanation.

Apple, plum and cherry trees fruit with reasonable regularity, while unfruitfulness in tho pear ia a fréquent complaint, especially _ with those who prune closely. Wliilo it is per- haps erroncoas lo assert that pear trees should not be pruned at all, it is worthy ot inquiry whether unpruned trees do not exhibit a better fruit-bearing record than those which have been subjeot to close pruning. How far tho liability of the pf ar to suffer from blight may be due to thc in- terference with growth caused by summer pruning, it may not be postible to deeids ; ...

Telegraphic News, FROM OUR OWN COHUSPOXDK.VT. South Australia. Adelaide, March 27. Election matters are now in full swing, and candidates iu ever}' part of the colony. The Government policy as put forward last week is being much criticised. The proposed progressive land tax will yield a revenue of £132,000 in- stead of £07,000 as at present. Playford has been accorded au enthusiastic reception by the resi- dents of Norwood. Au enormous audieuce attended to hear his views, and his appearance on the platform was greeted with vociferous checriug and a great waviug of hats and handkerchiefs.
