The Triton lead is still keeping up its reputation, many of the claims yielding nearly an ounce to the load, and one claim has given over 2 oz. About 100 loads were put through MlcLeish's macbine this week,. taken. from AcIontosh's, Wright and p trcy's, and other claims, the yield from which was very satis factory. I made a. slight hmistake last week in. stating the amount of Crichron and party's yield to be 10 oz- from 13" loads, it should have been 190 oz from 9. loads, thus giving over 2 oz to.the load. The Norfolk Gully is notturning out so.weU as was e pected. There are a good number of miners out:prospecting in the surrounding gullyi. The Spring Creek claims are being vigo rously worked, but having to 'contend with the water causes a good deal of delay.

ARRIVAL OF THE MAIL" -4-t-- The fallowing is the summary of the chief items of English news received by the arrival of the Geelong with the August mails : The emigra.ion movement has somewhat slackened, and the pauper emigration scheme has miscarried. Emigration to the Australian colonies was smaller in 1868 than for the 21 preceeding years. Chief Justice Cockle, of Queensland, has been knighted. When the Civil List Estimates were before the House of Commons, Professor Fawcett moved the omission of the item of £3,374 for the the presents made by the Duke of Edinburgh in Australia and at the Cape. Mlr Ayrton justifled the item, on the ground that the expedition wits authorised by the Govern. mont. A better feeling is arising in Ireland, and the Protestant lai'y are bestirring them selves.
