COMMIERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MA?KET. Saturday Evening. The Age reports:--The week's trade was brought to a close without tihe development of any feature of a novel or interestin'g cha racter. The depression in the market for country flour lhas leenl inl some measure relieved by tile serions falling off ill supldies, and prices lhave exhlilted a tendency to lharden to a point miore niearly assimelating to manufacturing cost, to-day's quotations standing at £11 7s Gd to £11 12s Gd according to brandI, with light offerings.

OuR moribund Legislative Assembly devoted tile sittings of Inst week to the congenial occnupation of playing Sir JAMES M'CULLLOCII'S little game of wasting time, frustrating responsible and representative government, and otherwise acting the oligarch. " Debate is now killed," as SIr. BERiYv told 1Mr. KEIFEID 011n Thursday, and Parlia mnent and responsible and representative govermnent are sold, or assigned, into the custody of Sir JAMEs MI'CULLOCIH and his forty followers. The object of this oligarchy is now, more than ever, to waste time, so tlhat they can sneak into a recess. Its conspiracy againsLt the rights of tihe people and the inte rests of the country has been, and is, to prevent tIhe only real representatives of the people, the minority, from obtain ing a dissolution and a majority of re presentatives of the people in: a new Parliament, and thus to stave oil Cons stitutional Reform, and prevent the introduction of a progressive land tax.

HOW SHE TURNED PRESBYTERIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 February 1876

IIOI SHI E TIURIVD PU RE?I?,' Mrs. Magruder will probably leave Dr. Hopkins' church and go. hereafter to the Presbyterian' meeting-house. Dr. Hopkins last. week had a frightful boil oil his leg, and he experienced very seveie pain when lihe tried to walk. While lie was sitting in his study on Friday, Mrs. Magruder.called and was ushered into the parlour. The servant went up the back stairs to tell the doctor, and whilst she was an her way the doctor started down the front stairs to get a drink of water. It hurt hin so much to walk down the steps; that lie concluded to slide down the banister on his stomach, and so, after looking carefully over the landing to satisfy himself that nobody was about, he "mounted thie bnrister and began to descend. The stairs run directly past the parlour door, and Irs. Magrmuder was amused to see the clergyman de sceuding with great rapidity, and in that singular fashion. It seems that the servant girl had placed a coalscuttle by the newelpost, wlilst s...

PA I LI A iI E T. LEGISLATIVE ASSEM?llLY. ctEl,NESDAY, FF.IiUARvY :13. The debate upon the ineole tax was, as t rule, temperately and argumentatively con ducted, but for some gross personalities on the part of Mr. Inglis.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 February 1876

TU'lsDAYv, FPuRUanY 22. The debhate in the Assembly on Tuesday eveming upon the hbdget of the Government fully showed that there exists a great dis taste for the income tax. Mr. Munro having pointed out the many objections that existed to the proposal, Mr. Langton submitted two amendments, the one having for its object the inclusion of property belonging to Vic torians situated outside the colony; and the other framed with a view to reach those persons outside the colony who yet derive their incomes from property in the colony, or from dividends, annuities or allowances obtained from Victorian sources, or, mother words, from absentees. The purpose of this manceuvrc was quite apparent, and Mr. Woods at once asked the Government if they intended to withdraw their proposals. Sir Jamnes M'Culloch replied in the negative, and tile debate was resumed by M.r. G. V. Smith, who contended that it was only by an income tax that the wealthy classes could be made to contribute to the revenue. Mr...

BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 February 1876

It is really very hard that the foundations of our faith, so elaborately laid by pastors and masters, should lie sapped in all direc tions, and that ruthless investigators will not even leave us the insect beliefs of our childhood. Bit by bit everything is taken from us. We are not even allowed to retain the harmless fallacy that "birds -in their little nests agree," or that ladybirds have a lihome to fly to. -l'rying scientific Colensos have discovered that Virgil is quite mistaken in thinking bees divine, that, on the con trary, they are subject to the worst human passions, and can contemplate with indiffer ence the death agonies of their nearest rela tions. Nothing is too had to say of the creatures which in our yonthful days were held up as the pattern of every virtue. A new scandal is circulated each autumn. The last shred of Character which they had left has now been pitilessly torn froim them. Their industry is impugnll ed, and they are accused, and we fear found guilty, of p...

A DEAD LION. " The epitalph tells us.sot what a aln was, but what he ought to hl've been," and the Ilamillon S'pecatolor almanac sings well the requiem of Captain Foster Fyans ; but it is not just that evil actions shoull lie gilded with gold any more than innocent people should be bllackened with soot after deatlh merely because they did or did not possess soime earthly influence in life; and the con geners of Fyans and the late Edward Bell, of Crowlands, and James Blair, of Portland, are so compln]letely linked to him thaut the fame of one is fame for three. At page 130 of the liamiiltonf Spectator almanace we are told that "the late Captain Foster Fyans, who died at Fyans Ford near Geelong, two or three years ago, was chief of the border police and Crown Lands Conm missioner for the Portland Bay district. He settled all disputes as to the boundaries of the runs, lixed the rent, and lined the oc cupier if it were. not paid ; and lie could take country from aperson who was holding ...

The forthcoming number of the Gentle man's .dllazine will contain an article by Mr. HIepworth Dixon, entitled " The False Move on Egypt," from which we are enabled to give the following extracts: " When -ve are agreed, our unanimity is wonderful. In these early days of December, 1875, England appears to have only one thought: she has done a great thing, and made her neighbors'stare. She has put uil her back, and called on the Powers to ob serve that fact. These Powers aresurprised and puzzled. Yet the least suspiciouns of these Powers is probably not so much sur prised and puzzled as herself.
