COUNTRY DISTRICTS. ?-. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] RURAL SPORTS AT SWANSEA. Tho Glamorgan Annual Ploughing Match, as will be observed below, came off at Red Banks, on Thursday tho 30th August, 1860. The weather was most propitious, Old Sol shining his brightest and thereby enlivening the scene and cheering the spirits of our Glamorgan pleasure-seekers. A well arranged catalogue of rural sports attracted large numbers to tho ground, among whom we noticed some of tho anciont fathers of the District, and many came from other districts to mingle with the youth and beauty who graced tho scene with their presence. So gay and fair an assemblage must have well repaid the promoters of tho sports for any little trouble and pains they had taken in the getting up the several tents. The first race was over 6 hurdles, 2ft. 6in. high, 120 yards distance, to be run by boys under 14 years of age, but as some of the little ones protested against 3 of the boys (who were rather stout and strong) competin...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 7 September 1860
TO THE EDITOR OT THE MERCURY. SIB,-In the JTércitri' of Saturday last, the hon. Colonial Treasurer in his placo in the House of Assembly on the 24th August, in reference to Bural Municipalities, is reported to have stated ¿hat " He would not say anything of Glamorgan than tkat the experiment was causing great un- easiness to some of its favorers, &c, &a, &c. Now Sir, either the hon. Colonial Treasurer is wrongly reported, and you have a great wrong to repair, or the hon. gentleman has been guilty of a serious indiscretion in placing implicit confidence upon a statement which I defy any one to sub- stantiate. I take high grounds for stating this, viz., I have never at any time heard au expression or remark made by " a favorer" that could bo con- strued into regret at the course Glamorgan has taken. But, Sir, I have heard one if not more of the most bitter opponents-for there were three or four-I have heard one of these say, "Well, you have managed better than ...

TO TUE EDITOB OF THE MERCURY. SIB,-In your suggestions to the Defence Com- mittee you say-" If men are so unmindful of their duty to their country as to refuse to bear their share in defending lier, they must be taught that duty" - "compelled to serve as militiamen or volunteers, the choice of which they would prcfer.the only option lett to them." , Choice quoth you-why thero are plenty of men of the right stamp who would cheerfully come forward, if they could afford it, but they cannot, yot would willingly give their time, and surely tho country ought to pay for their accoutrements, but it must be general, as human nature would revolt at joining a corps in which part paid for their clothing. I have no timo to write and I do not wish to trouble you, so I ndd two of my suggestions : 1st. No protective duties, but pass an Usury Act to induce uiouied men to invest their capital hi manufactures, &c., instead of in discount and mortgages to the ruin of hundreds. 2nd. A committee ...

HOBART TOWN WATER BILL. TO THE EDITOB OP TUE MEROURY. Sin,-In your report of tho debate on the Compen- sation Clause I am first reported as saying that the inhabitants had a right to the water of the creek &c, and at a later period as agreeing to Mr. I Miller's clause for compensation. In the division I voted against this clause. If Mr. Crookes* name is substituted for mino as urging the moral claim of Mr. Degraves-the apparent discrepancy will disappear. Your's obediently, ISAAC SHERWIN.
RURAL MUNICIPALITY OF SPRING BAY. TO THE ELECTORS. (Per favorur of the Hobart Town Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 7 September 1860
RURAL MUNICIPALITY OF SPRING BAY TO THE ELECTORS. (Per/itrour of the Hobart Town Mercury.) GENTLEMEN.-I am prevented by the Rtato of my health from personally taking part in tho ap- proaching olootion. Your petition was published in the Gazette of tho 10th of July; therefore the Governor may, if ho sees fit, proclaim the police district of Spring Bay a Rural Municipality on tho 11 til of this month, because wo know that a counter petition containing more names than tho originul one, cannot bo got up, however desirous Mr. Vicary and tho District Constable may be iu the matter. All Electors ought to bo prepared, therefore, to select six men, who as Municipal councillors aro willing and able to carry out Municipal govern- ment. That they may bo enabled to do so with tho greatest facility, it is, in my humble opinion, desirable that three should bo chosen from the north side of Prosser's River, and throe from tho south side. This would ensuro a duo regard being paid to the iutorosts of ...
