A correspondent writing to a contempory, says: -There is an article now in the market called rice meal, which is nothing more than fine sawdust. Put a certain quantity in a saucepan and boil it for say_ a quarter or half-hour, the water will only be just stained, and the sawdust then will show itself in a. perfect state. The sawdust is made from beech timber. Never was there a more wicked fraud cattle fed with a mixture of this stuff would almost certainly die. Church-rate Contest at Dorking,—A Vestry was convened at Dorking on Friday, to make a church- rate. Immediately after the commencement of the pro- ceedings Mr. C. Rose proposed, and Mr. T. Marsh seconded, the adjournment of the meeting till the 7th of November next, to allow an opportunity of investigating the liability of the ecclesiastical districts into which the parish is divided. The vicar, who presided, refused however to put Mr. Rose's resolution to the meeting, whereupon he protested. On a proposal to adopt the estimate submitted by the churchwardens, Mr. Cole moved and Mr. A. Marsh seconded the expungement of some of the items and the reduction of others. The amendment was then put to the meeting, and carried by a considerable majority. A poll was then demanded by the churchwardens. Amotion for a,twopenny rate was also lost, and a poll demanded in favour of the rate,by the wardens.
