New from Armidale

Thursday 4 March 1880, The Sydney Morning Herald

WEDNESDAY.

We have had splendid thunderstorms, causing abundance of grass for the winter.

Wheat-threshing is nearly finished, and there is scarcely one-half of last year’s yield. The market quotation is six shillings per bushel, and the farmers are holding back for an advance.

Now that the education question is settled, the public are anxiously expecting the Government to decide finally about the railway deviation into Armidale.

The new Post-office is nearly finished, and it is a very fine building. The Postmaster-General is expected to open it officially.
