INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. According- to a Baliarat Journal, serg*eant Tooliey, of Geelong*, has got himself into trouble, in his zeal to dis cover evidence relative to the silk robbery at Ecroyds, in Melbourne, some time since.

THE ELECTIONS. llie Elections for the Legislative Council throughout the colony have not apparently caused much excite ment. In Clare there was no de monstration of any kind, so the polling passed of very quiet.

At the close of the scrutiny on Monday last, the condidates stood as follows : Barrow Milne Dunn Baker English Stow Murray Goglin Gaedechens Raphael Mellor Wright Homersham 3,226 2,-534 2,510 2,485 2,485 2,112 1,809 1,206 1,051 952 826 697 351 It will thus be seen that the Hon. John Barrow is at the head of the list. Mr. S. Raphael's friends do not appear to be very numerous on the present occasion, while Mr. Homer sham ranks in his usual place with 351 votes to back him up, notwithstanding the vigorous efforts of his friends to procure him a place among the leaders.
