We are informed that the oat «rop turns out exceedingly good, and surpasses the best exiteetations ; we have heard of a number of cases in which the yield has reached from 30 to 40 bushels per acre. So much cannot be said of the wheat yield, whieh haa greatly disappointed many who thought they had been able to form tolerably eorrect estimates.

Sir — 'Will you be so kind as to allow me a small space in your very excellent paper to call th« attention of the Government, to the unpro tected state of the Vallot-box. During the hist election for members to fill the vacancies in the Legislative Council I had occasion to be present at the polling-booth in this neighborhood to watch the interest of one of the candidates. At the dose of the poll the Deputy Returning Officer proceeded -to seal up the box, and, to my great surprise and astonish ment, he coolly, put bis hand into his pocket and took out a shilling-piece and was about to apply it as the seal. I protested against such a seal being used, when he asked me what he was to do, as he had no other -to affix. This box and officer had to travel some 15 or 20 miles together to the Returning Officer for the dis trict. I asked him what was to prevent him from opening the box as often -as he liked during the jouraey and apply the shilling to...

But I find that as to three ef them (Royal Exchange, London Assurance, and Alliance), as they are also fire and life offices, their dividends afford ho indica tion of the success of their marine business. The other two = (Indemnity . aad Marine) acknowledge that they made large sums by taking unusually heavy risks on the earlier imports of ? Californian and Australian gold, at rates very 'greatly in excess of those now paid. A great part of this extraordinary profit they laid by as ...
