The memorial stone of the new building, which is being erected on the site recently granted by the Government, adjnccnt to the St. Kilda-road, was laid on Tuesday after noon by his Excellency the Governor. Such an institution has been long needed, and it is now evident that the efforts which have been made for some time past by a number of gentlemen who were .anxious to obtain a proper asylum for the deaf and dumbl, will result in the erection of a handsome and'com modious structure. The building is already in an advanced'stage of progress, and is being erected from designs prepared hy Messrs. Crouch and Wilson, architects,- in the style known as early English'. The portion already in hand comprises the centre and the whole of the southern wing, being fully two-thirds of the completed design, which, when finished, will present a facade of two hundred leet in length to the St. Kilda-road.

Anvr.-It is a noteworthy fact that amongst the matnufactures of this colony, there are few who can seek an equal distinctioni, and perhaps none who can so justly claim a superiority over British or European manufacturers as our first-class boot makers. The excellence of the design in fitting to the anatomy of the foot, by shaping lasts to its requirements, which is so essentiatlin bespoke boots, and almost as indispensable as tihe material itself. More especially in a country like ours where the heat of snmmer no way tends to make the feet harder or more healtlhy.
