The cold ppell was/of pncb sborfc duration, bowever, tbflt tbe dairy herds end other stock will not experience any heavy loss except on tbe higher levels where the enow is lying. The fall of snow was particularly heavy for this peiiod of tbe year, and with a few hours full a heavy coatiDg was to be seen. The fall was very heavy at tbe back of Akaroa, but no so heavy on tbe Little River bills. The rain is a very welcome one, and will help to revive the cocksfoot pad dock*, which have made a very poor start, Tbe cocksfoot will be very late this year, and the crop will be one of the emallept on record, as the hot weatber bus dried up the lower cocks foot countiy, and there will be very tbin crops throughout the whole dietiict on account of the dryness. !
