In the past they have always looked upon rain during October as be'mg absolutely essential, but this season, not only has Ootober, so far as it has gonr, proved abnormally dry, but it was preopded by a dry AußUst and September. The bird pest, owing to dryneai and consequent shortage of food, is also very pronounced. All things considered, although a f p\v berries are coming on to the market, the main will undoubtedly suffer, uulobs copious rain falls soon, Sale Day.—Friday is Hale Day at Duvauchelle. '
