Tlie Australian crow mnst not b likened to tho Htiitcly rook of (irent lttitain, for tlioy want the mniesiio strut, nnd nllop-ci her lack tint rich hnss "caw" of tho liritisli crow. Moreover, they live chinlly on carrion, hut nro both running and cruel enough to watch for and ninini anil kill weak or distressed animals that are utiahlo to escape ordefmid themselves from tVm. Tlicv have been holding hi;h holiday during the late drought, ami have boon the (Uieot cause of the death of thou sands of shocp and cattla that were weakened bv the famine, and but for their cowardly assaults might have sur vived. 1 have often seen those hateful birds attacking cattle and sheep that had got bogged or become too weak to rise from the spot where they hnd lain down to rest. They first usually make an attempt to jteck out the eyes, ami when their victims endeavor to avoid their beaks in that direction other parts ate assailed. Often have I found a weak sheep with both ears bleeding and partly eaten of)'; but more fie niently nave I seen one or both eyes destroyed and tho sheep still alive. In such iat ter instances 1 have invariably pitied the Injured creatures. One day during the continuance of the drought I notieeii, among other bogged sheep one stuck fast whose appearance appalled me. It was a ewo that would shortly hava lambed, and had been attacked by the merciless crows, which (horrible to, tell) had disembowled the yet living mother, exposing the limb of an unborn liimb. Of course I had no choice but) to destroy tho mother and leave it to the malignant ('rows. The lambing season has begun here, but the trvitig period we have passed through has left the surviving ewes so weak as to en- lamrcr their lives unless t lie lambs are destroyed. Thus it will be seen how adverse are the times to tlockmastcrs in tWs region. In the destructive pro cess toward (lie lambs the crows are in any season active agents, but when the mothers are strong and well they can oiler their young some defense. Iu such a season as this the helpless lambs become an easy prey of tho pitiless crows, which wait upon the ewes iu tho moment of their extremity, atideruclly pick out the eyes of tho lambs ere they have hardly been brought to the birth: and yet there are to be found some writers who put in a plea for tho crows on the ground that tnej' are insect-eaters, and live also on putrid car casses. So long as they can get live chickens, ducklings, or can linit living sheep or cattle that are unable to de fend themselves from their cruel beaks they will avoid putrid meat. Since the gladsome rain has fallen these malevo lent birds are not so dainty as to their food, for the stock being ablo to get water everywhere, and in safe places the former dangerous spots are avoided, and hence there is no bogiring to fa vor their relentless foes. These would therefore have to go without food if 'they did not now fall back on those carcasses that fell during the drought, or on other putrefactions.
