To ENTER at any length into the minutite of the Land scheme we propose, would not only be tedious to our read rs, but « ould, at the same time, be unproductive of any real good. If the ptinciple we have advanced bo a sound, a practicable, and a beneñcial one, the details, so that they trench not upou the facilities and inducements held out, are matters of secondary- impoi tance. There are some broad features, connected with the subject, however, which may not be silently passed over ; and to those we shall briefly ad\ert. With reference to the Regulations-or, rather, stipulations-embodied in the scheme, they should be few, simple, and intelligible People are very apt to distrust what they do not compiehend.

Her commercial intelligence nswill be .ecn by the subjoined extracts, are of the utmost interest to Austialia. Political excitement has exercised its usual influence over the market for English securities. Business was very limited ; but the demand for money was still active at the Bank minimum of six per cent., mid the best bills wcro done at that rate only. The remarkable rise in wool cannot of course fail to give satisfaction to the squatters and their agent«, and as there appears every probability of the advanced prices continuing, an impetus will unquestionably be givpn to the wool producing interest. But not only does the slate of the wool market at home afford cncouraacmcnt to colonial producers and merchants, but the intelligence gen- erally is of a cheering character.
