Country Correspondence, Mintaro

MINTARO, October 19.

The crops in this district are looking splendid at present. There is no complaint of red rust, and believe the quantity and quality of the wheat will be fully as good as last year.
Hooping-cough is very prevalent. Great numbers of children are very ill with it.
