WEBBS' ANNUAL CATALOGUE OF FARM SEEDS (issued by the well known seedsmen of Wordsley, Stourbridge,) is again to hand. It is a very handy book, seeing that it gives informa- tion as to the soils for which the various seeds are suited. This, With a price list, and other particulars, make the catalogue par- ticularly useful. It is illustrated, and accompanied by a convenient sheet for ordering Messrs. Webb's well known seeds. WEATHER FORECASTS.—At the last annual meeting of the Royal Agricultural Society, a letter was read frorn Mr. D. Reynolds Davies, of Agden Hall, Lymm, as to the circulation of weather forecasts, especially during the hay and corn harvest. He says—"The forecasts were despatched daily (Sunday ex- cepted) from the London office between 4 and 5 o'clock p.rr. to our nearest post-office—Lymm—distant abont three miles irom ay residence, and they usually reached me about 5 45 p.m., by a messenger who travelled on a velocipede. First a copy of the telegram was retained and posted at the Lymm Post-office (Lymm being a village with a considerable population), then over a district letter-box on the highway from Warrington to Manchester, and at the meeting of cross-roads 2,1,- miles from Lymm. I had a small box with glass face, under lock and key affixed over the letter-box, where the messenger deposited another copy of the telegram on his way here. This was ag-in repeated two miles further, on the same highway, and the meet- ing of cross roads in the village of Bollington, over the letter-hox there. A copy from here was again posted a mile off in another direction. By this means a tolerably wide circulation was ob- tained, most acceptable to my neighbours, and for which I was repeatedly thanked. The N.W. "district, over which these Forecasts are made, covers a very large farea, from Cumberland over Lancashire, Cheshire, and part of North Wales, and this considered, their extreme average accuracy is the more re- markable and in view of their practical utility, I should be glad if by means of increased grants the operations of the de- Partment could be enlarged by an additional number of stations for observation, so as to secure even better results for the infor- mation of agriculturists and others."
EDUCATION. At the last council meeting of the lcoyal Agricultural society the following' amended regulations as to the Society's Junior Scholarshios were adopted:— I.-In addition to the present examinations of advapced students, a more elementary examination is held annually in November by the Royal Agricultural Society. II —Ten scholarships of 420 each are offered on condition that the scholar remain at school unill the end of the summer term in the following year, or spend the ensuing year with a practical agriculturist, to be approved hy the Education Com- mittee, or at one of the Agricultural Colleges—such as Ciren- cester, Glasnevin, or the Agricultural Department at Edinburgh -,or partly at a school aizd partly with a practical agriculturist or at an Agricultural College. [Note.-In the event of tne scholar proceeding to Cirencester, he will be entitled to compete for one of the Three Middle-class Scholarships, given by the Council of the Agricultural College, of the value of LSO per annum, tenable for two years.] III.—The Scholarship for any year will not be paid until after a testimonial as to good conduct and industry he produced, after the expiration of that year, from the head-master of the School, principal of the College, or the practical farmer with whom the Scholar has complied with the preceding regulation. IV.—Candidates for the Scholarships must be between four- teen and eighteen years of age. V.—Candidates still at school can only be entered for these scholarships by the head-masters of their respective schools.

The Severn fishery district comprises the river Severn and so much of its tributary rivers and streams as are frequented by salmon or trout.
WELSH ASSOCIATION CHALLENGE CUP. FINAL TIE.—DRUIDS v. RUTHIN. The final struggle for the possession of this handsome trophy for the ensuing year, together with the ownership of the medals which accompany it, took place on the Wrexham Racecouse, on Saturday last,, between the Druids and Ruthin Clubs. They were favoured by fine weather and a large, enthusiastic, not to say excited, concourse of sjWctators assembled to witness the game. The Ruthin team were the first to appear in the arena, having donned the amber and black stripes before their rivals had reached the ground, and were awarded a round of applause. Half-an-hour was wasted in preliminaries, the choice of an um- pire being the chief cause of the delay, and the Druids then walked on the ground receiving a hearty cheer from their friends. Kenrick won the toss and selected the goal furthest from the town for attack. Lloyd set the ball going towards the Druids' goal. Both sides soon set to work in earnest and the game waged fast, chiefly in the Ruthin half of the ground, the hands of their goal keeper being called into requisition several times to avert disaster. Each side secured corner kicks, but no score was made until after nearly a half hour's play, when, after a sharp attack had been repelled by Ruthin, Owen got the ball and made a tine run, and the Druids' backs taking the man instead of the ball and Jnissing both, he got beyond them and passed the ball to Good- n, who sent it neatly through the posts, to the consternation of the followers of the Ancients," who had anticipated a bloodless victory, and the great joy of the Wrexhamites, with whom the Druids are out of favour. Encouraged by their suc- cess Ruthin made another onslaught, a good shot by Owen producing a corner kick from the goal keeper. The venue of the game again changed to the Ruthin quarters, and the ball was shot at the goal. The Custodian caught it and carried it out of danger, and a free kick was claimed by and allowed to the Druids, within a couple of yards of the goal line. A goal seemed certain, but the Ruthin frustrated the attempt, and when half time was called the game stood in favour of Ruthin by one goal to nil. On changing ends the Druids at once took the offensive and had several narrow chances of scor- ing, and about twenty minutes from half-time a free kick Was given to Druids for a trip. The ball was put well up to the goal and got away a short distance. J. Jones brought it up ain and passed it to Cross, who sent it on to Vaughan, and the latter made the game even by sending it through the posts. In eight minutes moról another disaster befel the Ruthinitos, John Jones cleverly putting the leather between the posts after Bill had sent it in front of them. With the exception of one or two breaks away, from one of which a corner kick was secured, the iame resolved itself into almost an uninterrupted attack on the Ruthin goal; but the defence was a desperate one, and although the Druids were several times within an ace of scoring, no further goal was secured, and the game thus ended in their favour by two goals to nil. Both teams were heartily cheered on their way to the dress- ing-room, at the emtrance to which the Druids' captain received the usual (Wrexham) courtesies. The Druids, which is one of the eldest clubs in the Principality, well deserved their success, as their captain Was one of the earliest promoters of the Assoeiation, and in the first year played in the "final," when after a desparate struggle Wrexham scored a goal in the last minute, and secured the trophy. Last year they nad no local habitation and scarce a name, and even this year have had great difficulty in getting a ground to play on. That they won on their merits no one can doubt, and if they can keep their team together it will be a difficult matter to wrest the cup from their grasp next year. Kenrick was scarcely in his old form, but Powell surpassed himself; the dogged determination of Williams and the dash of Bowen deserve equal praise and,;bar Ketley, who was very uncertain in his kick, the whole of the forwards played splendidly, their only apparent failing being a Want of deliberation in front of goal. Roberts stoppeu several good shots, but his habit of running out is likely at some time to bring down disaster on his team. Ruthin is quite a new Club, and therefore deserve all the more credit for attaining their present position. They have ex- cellent material, and need only a very little weeding and more experience to make that position secure. Parry did excellent Service as goal keeper. Roberts improved if anything on the capital form ihe exhibited against the Exelsiors. Maddocks, Mostyn, and Williams played hard as half backs, the first- -A particularly so. The forwards were a very even set and Played well together, and they (and Owen in particular) are to be congratulated in scoring against so formidable an array of backs as were opposed to them. They all, however, seemed to tire at the finish, but whether from want of, or too much, train- lug their friends know best. The duties of umpires and referee were most impartially per- formed by Messrs. Bethell (Birkenhead), Manners (secretary of the Association), and Brooks (Wolverhampton). The teams were composed as under ;— DRUIDS. Goal, B. Roberts backs, LI. Kenrick (captain) and J. Powell; **4lf backs, W. Williams and E. Bowen right wing, John Jones klid D. Heywood; left wing, J. Vaughan and "Jack" Jones; telatre, K. Crosse and C. Ketley. RUTHIN. Goal, H. Parry: backs, T. Roberts and G. Halley; half "*cks, K. Maddocks, Price Mostyn, and R. Williams; right *ing,W. P.

LANCASHIRE v. NORTH WALES. On Saturday, March 15, the fourth match between the picked representatives of the Lancashire and North Wales Associations took place at Turton, near Bolton, in the presence of about (.000 spectators. The day was exceedingly fine, and the ground rj the best condition. The Welsh players were deprived of the Services of any of the Druids' Club, who were engaged in the £ ie with Ituthin for the Welsh Association Cup, and Oswes- ?y had also a counter engagement so that the Welsh eleven was tn rdly up to the strength of the team which beat the Lancashire Sen at Wrexham on November 15,1S79, by four goals to none, ihe selected of Lancashire were principally Darwen men, and home team captain winning the toss, elected to play with a ■^illiant sua to hiBback. Witli'the disadvantage, Boden kicked off J?. Wales at 3-15, and the visitors soon gained a corner kick, *jhich F. Suter eventually baffled, and then Lancashire had a j.&ilar turn at the other end of the field, but othing came of the attack. The Lancashire men ontinued to confine the play to the Welsh end, and Edwards £ *?e the home team their first goal by accidentally tipping the between his own posts. Shortly after, Gledhill made jj? attempt to augment the total of the Lancashire men, jJ*' failed, Davies and Hibbott being remarkably active 5? 'he defence of their goal. The ball then had a 'r'P and short stay at the Lancashire men, but nothing vjj?16 of the attack, and once more the Wales goal was placed in j?~Pardy at this end. The game was warmly contested, but W. ^oerts broke away and passed to J. Roberts on the same wing, Shir pt P°ssesai°n of the leather until in front of the Lanca- %hire goal, when J. Price and Andrews came up with a rush, lk bou the former made the first score for the visitors just half-an- 1l" after the start. The contest proceeded with matters equal ^Pon> minutes before half-time, when Marshall was called lr- i!.ulanipulate a corner kick for Lancashire, and from this e0d« h ham secured the second goal for his side. After the Hje "a<i been changed, Lancashire kicked off, and for a com- Sbencement acted on the offensive, but Davies and Jones finally WoS with the ball to the Lancashire uprights. Marshall *t back with a splendid run, and finished up with a shot g°al, but the leather passed over the bar. Then the as similarly unsuccessful, whilst Andrews, changing Mthn affairs, enabled .T.

ENGLAND v. WALES. This international contest took place at Wrexham on Mon- day, March 15, in the presence of about 3,000 spectators, and resulted in a victory for England by three goals to two. Great interest was taken in the match, but a wet afternoon on Sunday and a dull morning caused the attendance to be rather small for so important a match; the sum taken at the gate being some- thing over £ 50. The ground had dried considerably and was in fair condition. The English team turned out punctually, but it was not until a quarter past three that the Welsh were ready for the fray. Sparks having won the toss, and taken the goal nearest the town, with the wind behind him, Price set the ball in motion, and directly after took a shot at the English goal; this was stopped by Sands. Several attempts were made at either goal, but principally at that of the Welsh. England got a corner kick, but nothing came of it; and Davies made a fine run for Wales, passing all who met him, and centred the ball finely, but no one was up, and Brindle kicked the ball from goal. Several shots were taken at the Welsh goal, but Hibbott stopped them, and Price got off side in attempting a rush at the English goal. Price headed the ball behind the English lines, and Johnson put it over the Welsh goal bar. Owen got a shot, which Sands caught. Cursham endeavoured to score for England, but Hibbott prevented him, and the English goalkeeper did the like with Davies. Wales got a corner kick. Morgan put the ball well up in front, but the defenders got it away, and Mosforth passed it in front of the Welsh goal, and Cursham lifted it over the bar. Four corner kicks fell to the lot of the English in quick succession, and the ball was got away from the immediate vicinity of the goal. bat sent back by Brindle. Hibbott stopped it, but made a stumble, and put it through, and scored the first goal for England at 8.52. Hibbot stopped several shots, but gave two corner kicks, and the Welsh had made some good but ineffectual attempts to equalize the score when half-time was called. With the advan- tage of the wind, the game looked in favour of Wales, but Sparks got hold of the leather in the middle of the ground, and, running right through the Welsh backs, placed a second goal to the credit of England at 4.6. This second disaster put the Welshmen on their mettle, and an attack was made on the English citadel, but repulsed. Sparks then made another, and got a corner kick, but with no result. Hibbott saved yet another goal, and Owen just missed the English goal with a long shot. Cursham wound up a fine run by a clever shot, which Hibbott stopped. Wales now looked like scoring, but the only advantage secured was a corner kick which came to nothing. Price sent the ball wide of the English posts and Sands prevented J. Roberts scoring. Mitchell got a run up the centre, and passed to Sparks. The latter took a shot, which Hibbott put back, but at the second attempt he put the ball through the goal at 4-37. With the score three to love and less than a quarter of an hour to play, the case of Wales looked hopeless. They were, however, nothing daunted, and pressed their opponents rather unpleasantly, securing two corner kicks. Brindle retired about this time disabled, and that the loss of his services was felt the sequel shows. A free kick was given to Wales in front of the English position. A good shot was taken, but stopped. Bill directly after sent the ball just over the English goal bar. The ball was brought quickly down the wing by Davies after the kick out; he centred it to Price, who passed I to the left wing, and W. Roberts drew first blood for Wales at 4-40. Davies brought it down again, but Roberts failed with the kick at goal. Williams saved his goaJ. by giving a corner kick. Hunter took it, but put the ball too forward, and the Welsh got a run, but Boden kicked too hard, and Sands ran out and returned the ball. Sparks and J. Marshall brought it to the Welsh goal, and Powell gave them a corner. Sparks headed the ball at the goal. J. Roberts stopped it, and Hibbott secured a shot of Marshall's. The venue of the play then changed to the English side, and Hunter saved his goal twice, but at 4 49 J. Roberts put the ball through, and secured the second goal, and ere the play could be resumed time was called, and the game ended, as before stated, in favour of the English by three goals to two, England had the advantage both in weight and height, the latter being very noticeable when defending their goal from a corner kick, as they headed the ball without difficulty over their opponents; the forwards dribbled splendidly, and passed syste- matically, and the shots at goal were, for the most part accurate; the half-backs played with judgment and vigour, and the backs were nearly perfection, and Sands kept goal in very good form. For Wales, Morgan and Powell played in their best style, and the throwing in of the former called forth many expressions of applause. Williams played effectively, and he and Mosforth seemed really to enjoy their many tussles. Edwards aJjo played well. The two Roberts's were well matched on the left wing, but the centres played but moderately, and did not give Davies and Owen their fair share of opportunities. The last-named is a most promising player, and Davies is too well known to need any word of praise. The want of a centre man who can pass well with his left foot was much felt, and should, if possible, be supplied by the time they play Scotland, and a few practice matches might be got up with advantage. The cat-like agility of Hibbott called forth continual bursts of applause. He stopped shots from all quarters, and had he not had the misfortune to stumble over one the game would have been even. The teams were ENGLAND. Goal, J Sands (Notts. Forest); backs, E. Luntley (Notts. Forest) and T. Brindle (Darwen); half-backs, J. Hunter (Sheffield) and F. Hargreaves (Blackburn Rovers); right wing, T. Marshall (Darwen) and H. A. Cursham (Sheffield); left wing, W. H. Mossforth (Sheffield) and E. Johnson (Saltley College); centre, F. J.

The British arrivals comprised 215 Scotch, 60 Irish, 1,000 Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex, and 975 Midland and Home Counties. Foreign beasts a very dull sale, and prices temled lower.

Holders were extremely firm, and some were even asking an advance upon last week's ratej. The demand for yarns also kept up, and spinners were very independent about taking [orders. Demi- lustre and mottled yarns were in request, as well as some twofold numbers. The piece trade is slowly improving. LONDON WOOL, MONDAY.—The wool trade continues very firm in tone. The public sales of Colonial produce were brought to a close on Friday, and passed off with satisfactory results, the demand having been spirited both for home use and for export. The trade for English wool is very firm, and a fair amount of business is in progress at enhanced rates. CURRENT PRICES. This year.. Last year. (Per lb.) a. d. s. d. s. d. s. d.

Trade Intelligence. WOLVERHAMPTON IKON TICADE.-WEDNrsDAY. Only a quiet business was done here this afternoon. Pig iron was very treely offered, most of it at prices more in consumers' favour than for three months past, but consumers had well bought forward, and they therefore declined to purchase. Fin- ished iron was likewise in larger supply, and might have been had generally for less money than a week ago. High-class bars, sheets, and boiler plates were, nevertheless, firm at makers' prices. Producers complained of the withholding of specifica- tions by consumers and by merchants. Manufacturing coal was strong, and in fair supply; inferior was weak and abundant. MINERAL REPORT.—MANCHESTER, SATURDAY. Messrs. Berger Spence and Co., in their weekly report, say- There is little alteration to report in minerals, most of them having been stationary all the week as far as prices are con- cerned, and the tendency being towards a decrease in the bulk of trade. This is to be attributed, in a great measure, to the relapse which has taken place in commerce generally, and of course this branch has not escaped the influence. Brimstone has lost much of its firmness, and holders are more eager to quit. Foreign advices give the article in good demand for forward de- livery, but buyers averse to give any advance over prices for current. Iron ore is still in excellent demand, but there is an unmistakable absence of that pressure for supplies until lately noticeable all good brands, however, continue to bring full prices. China clays are the subject of much attention, and fair sales have been made at a shade of impiovement in price. Ochres also move more freely. THE CROPS AND THE CORN TRAUK. The Martc-Li&ne iSxpretss days Advices from the agricultural districts are unanimous on the subject of improvement, as even the heaviest soils are rapidly getting into working order, and farmers are doing their utmost to make up for lost time. Spring tillage has been actively carried on throughout the Uniteu Kingdom, and the prospects of a genial season are thankfully hailed by all whose interests are centred in agriculture. Good progress has been made with the sowing of barley, beans, and peas, as the land has been in tine condition for the reception of these crops. After the mild rain at the beginning of the month, and the subsequent sunshine, the pastures have wonderfully im- proved, and are now lacking green and full of life. Scotch advices are equally favourable, ploughing being well advanced, and barley and oat sowing having commenced, while the grass has been growing rapidly, and looks greener than it did a month later last year. Having been almost exclusively occupied in the preparation of the land and spring sowing, farmers have had little time to devote to threshing, and the offerings of home- grown wheat have consequently been very small, both at Mark- Lane and in the provincial markets.

Page 13 says .—"TWO pairs of boots lined with fur were also taken; and for physic-with which it is as well to be supplied when travelling in out-of-the-way places-some uln 0 quinine and Cockle's pills, the latter a most invaluable medicine, and one which I have used on the natives of m c Central Africa with the greatest possible success. In fact, the marvellous effects produced upon the mind and body of an Arab Sheik, who was impervious to all native medicines, when I administered to him five COCKLE'S PILLS will never fade from my memory; and a friend of mine, who passed through the same district many months after- Wards, informed me that my fame as a medicine man' had not died out, but that the marvellous cure was even then a theme of conversation in the bazaar." SEE BURNABY'S RIDE TO KHIVA, page 13. A GOOD FAMILY MEDICINE CHEST, with a prudent use, has saved many a life and vet we think the idea may be improved upon, and reduced to a more simple form. Take some good compound, such as COCKLE'S ANTIBILIOUS PILLS and we find that the desired end may be obtained with. out scales and weights, or little mysterious compartments or enchanted bottles, with crystal stoppers. Others might be used, but COCKLE'S I*ILLS, is tested by many thousands of persons, and found to answer their purpose so well, may be set down as the best. -Observer.
