KOBBE GALLA. P. S.—Plentiful rains have been falling in and about Kandy for the last 6 or 8 days, thus making up, in some degree, for the very unusually dry Monsoon; such dry and unfavorable weather has not been known for some years. If the rains now hold on, the season for Coffee planting will after all prove about an average one, and all fears of a short Rice crop will turu out groundless.-The Cholera in Kandy is much abated, very few cases having occurred since the late wet weather and hopes are entertained that by this time it will have entirely disappeared.

The weather generally speaking, has been exceedingly favorable to the planter in this quarter : Iima. gi:ne that very few in any part of the Kandian District, could have wished for a finer season than wo bave had on this range of mountains. The rains secm now fairly set in and as may be supposed ererg advantage is taken of them to plant out newly cleared land, supply deficiencies from failures and make nurseries,

The rapid growth of weeds during ibis weather renders the operation of cleaning a laborious one, but it is too important to be neglected.

The young plants placed ont in the early part of tbe rains are looking as well as could possibly be wished. In some parts a few berries are being gathered and in a week or ten days the whole of the crops in this part will be ripened,

The health of this estate still continues very good, neither fever nor cholera having appeared.

Ye Roman Bards, illustrious Greeks, give way :
Not Homer's self bursts forth with brighter ray..

Anonymous,

ADDISON, --who led the way, and has never been excelled, in the criticism of Milton's Paradise Lost,-fully considered that truly divine Poem under the four heads of fable, character, sentiments, and language. To keep out of the track of this elegant critic, and of his great master, Aristotle, wo may remark that there is a faculty of mind, exercised by our Milton, more or less in all bis compositions both in prose and verse, in which he is greatly superior to Homer himself. This is that lofty reasoning imagina. tion,
