The days are now quickly shortening, and there is at times almost' the keenness of winter in the, atmosphere. Sunday was very close and muggy in the afternoon until about 4 o'clock. There was a calm, so to'"speak, as still as death, but, without the slightest warning, a southerly windstorm burst upon the town. The wind blow at a high velocity, and a great change was wrought almost immediately. Myriads* of loaves and small objects chased each other in great confusion, and the oval t of the Domain and the bowling green I I were in a trice transformed from quiet, ! spotless surfaces to the playground of I masses of dry leaves," twigs, thistleI down, etc. The wind also foretold the | approach of the " fall," as many of the [ leaves blown from the deciduous trees had donned that yellow tint natural before they die off. The storm was similar to those frequent in Australia during the summer months, where they are tormed "southerly bursters." To-day was,cloudy and cool, with rain threat.ening, but none fell.'' |MM ;

The following is the- Rev. D. C. Bates's forecast: —The indications are for southerly uinds, moderate to strong, and the weather probably will be cool and changeable. There is a prospect of fair weather, and the night probably will be very cold, with frosts inland. The bnrometer has a falling tendency. .-.•■■,'■' ;
