THE CONFLAGRATION. (From the Geelong Advertiser, February 8th\) ' The calamity which has fallen upon thé1' farmers of the Barrabool Hills and the( valley" fi of the Moorabool, is so awful in its Aspect/ so sudden in its accomplishment, so lament- able in its consequences, that it can only be equalled in those pages of history where in- vading armies are described as laying coun- tries waste with fire and sword. In the course of a few .hours the labour of many years has been reduced to nought, and thc stout hearts which have borne up hopefully against many reverses, are again enst down in despair. The highly cultivated district . which on Thursday morning was teeming with the fruits of harvest,-is now a blackened smoking wnste; the stacks of wheat are reduced to little heaps of tinders; the fences are only traceable by the red liues of ashes; the sites of houses are here and there only recognizable by heaps of smouldering allies, or.» hW solitary ^tone or brick chimneys^ Where it hut...

The natives seem to be well acquainted with them, and say that ancient tradition is uniform as to the former exist- ence of a bird large enough to carry off an ox.

SAXONY MERINO RAMS.-We are glad to perceive a healthier spirit getting abroa d amongst the stockholders of our district in regard to the management of their establish- ments. In proof of this circumstance we allude to the importation of a number of very superior rams from Germany by james Wal- ker, Esq., of Wallerawang, one of which we understand cost ¿£65, independently of the cost of transportation. Our neighbour, Mr. Kite, has expended «£150 in the purchase of four of Mr. Kirchner's rams per the ship "Australia," direct from Germany. They are selected, we understand, from the choice flock of Prince Chevalier, a very extensive breeder. A sample of the' wool brought to our office for inspection, equals anything of the kind we ever saw. JA Sydney house offered to give 4s. per lb. for any quantity of clean wool of asimi- lar* quality, and one of the best Sydney wool sorters undertook to say that a cross by these rams would produce a description of wool which would raise the value of ...
