" Pooh," said Fitzboodle, "they are nothing but fishing-smacks." HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.-It is difficult to de termine which is the more trying to health, intense cold or excessive heat, though every body knows that sudden transitions from both are prolific of disease, which may in most instances be repelled by an early resdrt to these purifying, regulating, and streigth ening Pills. This well-known and highly esteemed medicine affords a safe and easy remedy for almost every constitutional wrong which climates, changes, or dietetic errors, can engender, and effectually removes any weakness self-indulgent habits may have induced.

If it were possible to give t ic evidence given at the inquest on James Morrison, the young solicitor, who died suddenly in his chamber on Friday night, while closeted with a go verness, who was a client of his, it would create a sensation. But that must rest in obscurity. The next item on the list is the Do Murska business. Since the marriage of the great singer to Mr. Anderson, the most extraordi nary rumours have been flying about, and from what I hear Mdlle. De murskit.is entitled to the very deepest sympathy. Owing' to the defection of Mr. Pratt, Mr. Anderson was engaged, and the beautifil prima donna fell in love with her young and clever pianist, who was by-the-bye a very good looking fellow. When he went to Sydney with her he took very ill, and was watched day and night by the beautiful lady. After ...

The following report has been re ceived by the Minister of Mines respect ing the new rush at Norfolk Gully, situate five miles southerly of Talbot, and eight miles N.W. of Clunes : "Sir,-I have the honor to report that I visited the above rush yesterday, and fountl about 500 miners on the ground, 150 men of which were actually at work. The prospecting claim at the northern end was issued about a fort night ago, vhich had about 4ft. sink ing but the lead gradually deepens to 6Oft. as far as they have yet worked at the southern end. The washdirt is about 10ft. wide and about Ift. in thickness. The yield from some of the shafts bostomeed is about 1-dwt. to a tub of washdirt. "The sinking is through clay and shingle, but the lead will dip upon the basaltic formation at about ten chains south of the 60ft. shaft shown o@ the plan.

(Concluded front o?sr lust.) - Tie fortheoming numbecr of the Cclrle mtan's Alagazine will contain an article by Mr. Heipworthl Dixon, entitled " The False Move on Egypt," from which we are enabled to give the following extracts : These two results, they think, have been achieved. France is alienated; Itussia challenged and defied. irance has found a second Sedan in Egypt, and Russia has been punished for her rupture of the Treaty of Paris. Hence the sentimentalists are jubi lant. Already theyare talking about Cairo as though it were as much a part of our Empire as Calcutta.

THE QUEENSLAND SUGAR CROP [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 29 February 1876

THE QUEEISLANzVD SUGAR CROP The Brisbane correspondent of the S. JM. lHeraldl writes :--n place of having some thing like 10,000 tons of sugar for export this season as was the reasonable estimate., of the production of the year, we have nTs produced enough for our own wants, and Queensland will 1e in the market as a buyer. The crop, all told, which will not exceed 5000 tons would not have been sufficient for home colnsumptionl inl any case; but during the early part of the season some of our sugars found their way to other markets, and we shall have to import to make up for what we have sent away from the market at our very door. Despite every drawback, and the fact that not a few planters have been crushed this seasoli instead of their canes, the promise of the industry is good for next year. In every district are to be found men who, in the almost universal falling off, and in many cases failure, in the productiveness of the plantations, have held their own, and have made the ind...

AJELBO URNEUl (FrlOm OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Saturday Evening. The Governmenut succeeded in passing their budget on Thursday evening, and will re-commit the resolutions, so as to enable valuable amendments to be adopted. The Premier intends to provide in the income tax resolution for the payment of taxes by persons drawing or deriving incomes from other colonies.

During the sitting a visitor, the Honorable Mr. Morgan, Chief Secretary of South Australia, was provided with a seat on the Speaker's right hand. The Premier proposed to go into the estimates, but as the Opposition stated they were not prepared, aln adjournment of the House was made until Tuesday next.

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 29 February 1876

- COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The Age reports:-The markets through out the week have ruled without the slight est animation, andia good deal of disappoint ment is felt at the aspect that trade has latterly assumed, the amount of business passing through hands affording insufficient employment.to the houaesengaged in com mercial traffic. The long continuance of this state of ffair"d gives rise to the anticipa tion of some firms retiring from a contest yielding no prolit, but involving much risk. In breadstuffs we note a level market during the week, any change being more one of feeling than atangible alteration in price ; at the close, however, the tendlency was slightly against holders, the bakers' demand for flour having shown unmistakable symptoms of slackening, that section of the trade having supplied themselves for a time, and some of the country market being reported as less firm. Best Northern wheat is worth 5s 3ud, bags included, but buyers are no...

TIgE Victorian -Legislative Assembly, during the. recent debates, has afforded ample food for reflection to the thought fil mind, and the unruly tongues of certain members thereof have brought disgrace upon the colony. It is indeed mortifying to read the account of the various scenes which have lately taken place in the House, and both Ministe rialists and members of the Opposition are to blame for allowing their tempers to canry them away. Our highest representative body has been dragged in the dust, and become a spectacle to the other colonies. The lie direct has been given by hon. members to one another over and over again, and such neat expressions as "'Bogus" and " Tarpot" have been of frequent occur rence.. The Speaker of the Assembly seems to be unfitted for the important office lie holds. At one time he tolerates lahnguage which would not be allowed in any decent society, and at another period lie suddenly becomes conscious that his dignity has been in sulted, and demands th...
