(Abridged from the Armidale Express, July 5.)

THE ROCKY RIVER.

On Monday, the 23rd June, a public meeting was held at the Sir Wm. Denison Hotel, for the purpose of eliciting opinion respecting the Dividing Fences Bill.

Resolutions to the effect that the bill is inimical to free selection, and that the existing law relative to dividing fences between freeholder and freeholder is sufficient for the present necessities of the colony, were passed, and embodied in a petition to the legislature.
