The Gas Company. — It is exactly twelve months this-day since gas-lights were first iiitro duocd, on a large scale, into New South Wales, and indeed into the southern hemisphere. This circumstance add6to the interest of her Majesty's Birth-day in the eyes of the good citizens of Sydney. It may be remembered, that on the 24th of last May, the company, in honour of the day, made no charge to their consumers: their income, therefore, did not commence until the 25th. The success of the undertaking has been most com plete, both 'as regards the regular and efficient supply of gas, and the returns realized. The number of lights is now, we understand, nearly 1700, and the revenue upwards of £10,000 a year. The outlay has been very considerable, and much of it lias extended through several years ; but there can be no doubt that before long the profits will well repay the enterprise and patience of the shareholders. The Spanish brig Corbuco, from Valparaiso, has brought a cargo of wheat and f...
