MASONIC FOSBRAL. -Tue Isle- fíenme!

Gm nett was accorded . a Masonic funeral by j bis brethren of ibo S vhV Iwdge, ; E 0^, on Sunday. Aa-Mr, Gurnet* -did ont; die. until late on Friday evening MB desth was not generally known. orrno doubt, tiiere would,

have been . muck Urger funeral 'titan there j was. It WOT a wiW unpleasant day, end as

the burial ground is situate at a .^onaidsrable i

distance from town, roany friends may nave kept away on that account. Besides, the deceased occupied only a humble position in' society-and though bearing an unblemished reputation,- was not generally well known, except by bis immediate ¡friends and the organizations of which- he was a member. However, the Freemasons, true to their principles, made no distinction on the seor.' of social standing, and they,, from the oldest to the youngest member,, faced the wind and dust and the: long tramp to Mcgrath's Hill manfully. ' The brethren ot the Lodge pre ceded the hearse, 35 in all-the Tyler, Bro. Berckleman, in full regalia with drawn sword, and Bro. Wilbow,« Inner Guard, walking ff« st following them were Bros. Dunstan and Huxley, and other brethren two by two. Then the P.M., Bro. Dickson, carrying the sacred Volume of the Law, and the W.M-, Kto. Piekup, bringing up the rear. Then came the hearse. Bros. Linsley, Coley, Giispeiy and Scotland, being pall bearers. Following the hearse were mourn ers and the general pnhlic-some few walk ing-*-others in some seven or eight vehicles. At the Cemetery, the Rev. J. S. Austin conducted the service, in his usually im. pressive manner, aecordmg to the usnties of the Wesleyan Church-of which the de ceased was a very consistent member. After the service of the Church had concluded, the Brethren formed a circle round the grave, and the W.P.M., Bro. Linsley, tend the sublime and impressive Service of the Order-the beautiful language of which impressed niany, to whom Masonry was-' an incomprehensible mystery-something to stand in awe of-tn such an extent that henceforth Masons will bc considered as much " saved " as an) member of the " Army.1' The late Mr. Gumett wac also an Orangeman ; thoutrb foi some cause or other, the brethren nf that order did not think fit to march as Orange men-though there may have been s ime whr followed as Dsivate citizens. tte was also s member of the Itiiltvny Association,-anti here again was observable the same lac! of interest-though we may charitably pul it down, in their case, to the short notice and no Sunday train running. The deceases had been a resident of Windsor sinco thc oponing of the- railway, and whether a Freemason, Orangeman, or Good Templar his characteristic was sincerity anc thoroughness in what he believed to bi right. He had been a great sufferer fo some time prior to his death.-which cami when he had passed tho patriarchal agc

allotted to man.

ADVICE IO JouRKALisrs.-Under this heading the Cotma Express discourses thus musically to a newspaper man's oars :

" Wc are continually receiving annually reports, Ssc, from Insurance,! oilier moieties, as welt as prospectuses for mining and other swindles, with thc sender's compliments, asking us to paragraph or report on same. How as we re. ceivo little or no support from such societies or companies, who preter spending nil the money available for advertising among Sydney journals, we can only characterise the conduct of the management in asking provincial journals to bolster up by cluap paragraphs, as mean and con temptible in the cïtremc. Hitherto we have been in the habit acoceding to the request of these Syd ney sharks, and have robbed ourselves and family by coDSenting to lrecome tools ot such, but ex perience had nt last had ita beneficial effect, and we now once and for ull positively deolinc to lend our colainns to any society unless wo are jmid for it. If all other provincial papers will only adopt tho same rule, n different slate of nffiirs will bc the result, and in tim place of the Sydney papers monopolizing tho advertising business, country newspapers will receive what is in all fairness duo in this respect."

It is really a pleasure to read tho above, for it strikes right straight out at a most iniquitous evil. Friend Express, we may tell you we have been on the same track as yourself a long time, and are extremely glad to find that we have not been sailing alone. We were the first we know of to ey

pose the Kurts advertising dodge, and have all along been doing our level best to move our fellow inkslingers to set up their backs against the whole tribe of comorauts who prey upon the country press. We do not mind giving a young newspaper, or a good work of any kind, a shove along-though devil a bit of anything do we get without paying for it ; hut wo do most strongly object to assist these big syndicates of which our friend complains, to make a pile out of the public. That tlie country press are victimised most unmercifully may bo seen by the heaps of pamphlets, reports, etc., seen in ony country editor's officj, and the way we are left out in tho cold by, not only syndicates, but tho Government, is illustrated by the good fat ads. to be seen in HIP Sydney papers-which is-mostly brought about by official patronage, tho influence of members of Parliament, or the tiddliwinkiug of advertising agents-who lop off twenty per cont, at ono fell blow. Wo have not only long ago resolved to do as our friend is doing, but we havo done more, we have told these people straight, either verbally or by letter, that^ wo could do no business with thom hut in a legiti mate way. They tell us countrymen, that we are only too glad to fill our paper with their nostrums ; but we may tell them in return to make no mistake about that, fur

wo thank no one for cb>*p watter ; we «in fill our rag. at any rate, w«h «tor O»TO>-and if vre really want toladvertise anybody1 gratis, we shalt certainly give preference to our own people^wKo ,fia^nii^;^^«]iiiM th y can.

PUBLIC SCHOOL . CiiAxcras.- I hare- been informed that Mr. G. H. Flanuory, the head muster of our Public School finishes bis duties as- such at Ltinbtoo this week, and has been appointed head master of the Public School at Wickham* Mr. Plannery has bees in charge of Lambton School for 13 months, during which time it has not in any way retrograded ra rank, but rather advauced, tho pupils having fur a master iu Mr. F/annery a maa who has the happy style of being firm without exhibiting harshness. He has a voice of stentorian character, as well a« clear and distinct, but withil, used in such a manner thai the most timid child is iu6pired with confidence instead of overawed with terror.

The pupils, BO fur as I learn, respect him as a teacher, and have improved under his teaching. This respect is shared in by the parents and general community. Ast.a citizen, Mr. Flaunery is highly esteemed, aud, as a personal friend, I can only say that a half hour spent in his company simply meant begone dull . cate. Whilst regretting bis departure, Lambton friend? congratúlate him on his well-deserved promotion to a first-class school, and con gratulate Wickham, people upon the acquisition to their town of a schoolmaster who will come up to all they eau expect in such an important office..-Newcastle Morning

NEW PAPER.-Received first issue of the

Cumberland Argus, a very neatly got up   paper published in Parramatta by four old   Mercury hands, viz: Messrs. Little, Lovell,   Richardson, and Gazzard-quite a host of talent in themselves (literary and otherwise) without extraneous hands. There's a lot

of good reading matter in the Argus- which, we notice, is also the "Fruit   Grower's Advocate"-but wo fail to detect

its politics-which, in these time-serving times, is important. We should be sorry to see a paper in the hands of capable men. nothing in particular. We don't much care what a man professes-but whatever he is, he shouldn't be ashamed of it. We won't

be hasty, anyhow ; our young contempor- ary hasn't had time to look round yet- that is to say, take soundings. Anyway, let 'em stick to the fruit, no matter whether they hoist blaok, green, yellow, or blue, at

the main.

CRICKET.-Last weak we reoorded the doiugs of some of tho English players who are now on their way out to these Bhores. Here are a few more records. In August last, Yoikshiro, playing at Canterbury against Kent, ecorod 434 with only two wickets down. TJlyett. Hill, and Lae eaoh scored over 100 in the match. Lately out of seven completed innings, Yorkshire has topped tho third century four times, besides

their scores of 258 and 208 for four wickets. Then against Lancishire, the Yorkies, scored 590 ; tho Lanlties, however, scored well, for they put togother 303 and .117 in two iuniiigs. Altogether 1210 runs were scored by 28 wickets. Mr. A E. Stoddart, ono of Mr. Vernon's team, has boon making some big scores for his club-the ITnmp

steads. This is what ho did in one week:

July 25th. versus M.C.C. & G., 21 ; 20th, versus Ne'er-do-wells, 205 ; 27th, versus London Scottish, 275 (not out); 28th, versus Clapham Wandorers, 55 ; 29th, versus Slade's Elovon, 114 (not out) ; 30th, versus Old Finchleans, 230 (notout), or a total of 900 for six innings. ¡So it occurs to us that the colonials will need to keep their eyes sLiunod. A numbor of Australian gentle men, resident in England, captained by Mr. JT. H. Scott, recently scored 239 in one innings against an Ealing team-their score being only 91, two of them scoring ÖG

out of tho total.

FAm.tAifENTAni PANTOMIMES. - Our legislators arc in a fair way to beat the record in slang whanging. Mu. Abbott introduced a new standing order, on Tuesday night, winch will have thc effect of modifying thc closure. Mr. Hutchinson ma. naged to pass a resolution having for its object the extension of thc principle ol Local Option ; but Mr. Prank Farnell vms not so successful ir«.-trying to get member's letters carried frae liy post-títere Iwiug :U for, and 42-against. Tuen Ur.

O'Sullivan,.Carran, and himself ; bat the Premier

insisted on n ballot being taken. Mr. Levien "got on " 6OU10 to Waterj'ig Foster, and had a growl with thc Speaker. Tom Slattery wouldn't ait on,the committee at any price, because he " didn't speak" to Clarke. Tom Walker, and thc Pearaicr. had a SJt to, and then tho opposition marched out of the chamber-leaving the Government bullocks to do the balloting themselves. The members so selected were ifes6rs. JMville, Brunker, Chapman, ß. B. Smith, Street. Black, Burdekin, See, Gould, and Abigail. Mr. Levien asked whether '* the Minister for Mines-will sit in judgment in bis own casci" '. Of course he will," said Mr. Fletclicr. " Then it is a groBS and wicked corruption," said the irate member for Tamworth. Then Mr.Melville wanted to know something about a pamphlet issued by the Government Printer, which, contained gross libel lous matter affecting himself,.and other members ofth-i Assembly. .Mr. Garrett blocked the way ; the Speaker ruled Ninney out of order, and I he row be came general -(joints of order hoing Ute order of the night until Niuiau shut the Camden man up with "Why does this impenetrable jackass, the Minister for Lauds-this impertinent jackanapes "persist in interrupting roe ?" Mr. Dibbs objected to be sat upon by the Speaker, nod -there was a sharp f unlade from one side of thc House to the other-the shot being in this Style : " You rabble ! you rabble ! " and iront tho other sklc^ " you gaggcrs ! you tyrants-H you tiger slayers!!!' Then came a motion for adjournment, and Mr. Abbott re-intro luced the matter of free passes tc school children-which had been so abused that the public school teachers in some loivns were suffering through the loss of. their pupil«. He was one of thone «ho wis in favour of placing the Denominational school children on the same footing ns those at tending Public schools, but ile did not wish to shu: up thu latter.
