In the Provincial Council at Auckland, at its sitting,, on the 26th October, a motion that the sittings do commence with prayers was carried by a majority of 12 to 7. .... News, has been received at Auckland that the petition of the Provincial Coun- cil there, praying that the Northern t Pro- vince of Auckland might be constituted a separate colony was laid before her Ma- jesty, but no steps had been directed thereon. lu other words, it Was re- fused.

These remarks have reference exclusively lo merchandize ; for, as regards real properly, nothing could lie mitre inapplicable than the bitter observation, the tendency being very decidedly downwurd. TJic period of the year, however, may in some ?ne" sure account for this ; the month ¡minc« dialely before and after Christmas being un- derstood to be a dull season. The only pro- perties now selling arc building allotments and small bouses, and for these but very indifferent prices are obtained, that is compared with those ruling some few months back. The Legislative Council was prorogued on the 2nd, when Sir ('huiles Fitzroy made his valedictoryaddrcss. He refers to the prosp...

VICTORIA. OUR files are complete to the 12th. With reference to commercial matters we quote the following from the Argus. It speaks     for itself. The recent disturbances tit Ballaarat have had an effect upon trade, which, during the week has been more quiet than usual. We scarcely remember any week in which so little change has occurred in prices. There   has also been more quietness in another and more satisfactory way.
