Vegetation is suffering for want of rain, many fields are badly injured; especially so in fields that were not properly cultivated.
New buildings are springing up in the neighborhood. They are generally built in the most substantial manner. A year hence scarcely a scar will be seen in the track of our late unwelcome visitor. Some of our people have actually increased their family representation since the cyclone. More help needed, you see. Messrs. Thirsk and Holloway are the fortunates.
