MORE FLOODS IN AMERICA.
A cyclone swept over the State of Kansas. Serious floods occured, and Uniontown was swept away.
The frost yesterday morning waa Beverely felt m the " Guardian " Offioe. The type m several of the oases, wbioh bad been damp, was frozen with solid clusters, and tbe tbamng oat and dejing tboreod caused tbe lon of a good deal of time. This together with an unusual pressure of advertisements, oaused publication to be delayed to a very late hoar. Since the ohange m the train servioe, our parcels have sometimes missed the afternoon trainß; arrangements have been made by wbioh this will not oooar m future. Last night aboui a quarter past six as most of the burgesses were m the midst of their evening moal, tbe fireballs rang oat. The mexnbeis of the brigade quiokly assembled, but on ascent of the look-out at the etation did not discover the Boene ot the fire. The ourrfcole and the steamer, however prooceded to tbe Triangle where a glare was Been, and found that a blaza bad been lighted there for the purpose of creating a surprise alarm to teat tho efficiency of tne new means of fire protection. As Bteam waß not got up m the " Pride of Aehburton " and no water was laid on the fire. The alarn failed m its oujeot, though it demonstrated the quiokneßS with wbioh the brigade tarns ont when required. We dip the following important testimonial from the "lUawarra Meroury" (N.8.W.) of the 30th March. It needs no comment: — " Mr John liwriay, ot tto BoAli Mountain, writes to us that after suffering for four years with acute gr&Yel, he has experienced almost complete relief by using Sander and Sons' Eucalypti Extraot. He says seeing the eaid Extraot advertised m the 'Illawarra Meioary,' his intense Buffering induced him to obtain a bottle of the metQoine from Mr Hoßking, ohemist, of this town, and that tbe use of it gave him great relief at once. He stateß that between tbe 10th March instant, when he obtained the first bottle of the extraot, and tbe 19th, the use of that medioine continued to afford him relief, to which he had been a atranger for four years, Mr Loveday writeß also that he has found the Eucalypti Extraot a cure for rheumatism as well &b gravel. He requests us to publish this information through the • Meroury.' We have muob pleasure m complying with Mr Loveday's ; request, whose word oaonot be doubted, and who oan have no objeot m view other than a pare desire to benefit Buffering humanity,"— (Adv*. 'a* 1 ;
