District Intelligence^

PARKES. (Independent.)  

It would appear that the venomous red- backed spiders are getting both numerous and vicious. On Friday last a little son of Mr. W. Rogan was bitten on a very tender part by these little pests, and for a

time was in great danger of losing his life, but we are pleased to learn from Dr.   Murray that he is on a fair to recovery. On Sunday evening, a man named Charles Spicer was bitten on the forearm by one of the same species, and but for the im-     mediate assistance of Dr. Eagar may have suffered severely. We learn that Spicer has not felt any serious effects from the sting he received. As - showing the fertility of the soil in   this district in anything like a fair season, 'we may mention that four peaches taken promiscuously ( from a case brought into Mr.'W. Jones' shop, on 'Monday,' from   Mr. H.H. Cooke's garden at Currajong, known as Trelowarren, turned the scale at two pounds — and these were by no means the largest in the parcel. During the storm on Monday morning   last, one of the chimneys at the court house was , struck by lightning, but very little damage was done further than dis arranging a portion of the top work. It is almost a pity that the electricity did not take a better hold of the miserable structure now used as a courthouse and razed it. to the ground, as then we might have had something more in keeping with requirements and advancement of the place.
