The phenomena familiar to us all in connection with the action of water in existing watercourses upon the surface, would illustrate and explain the presence of gild in oar various leads.

Commercial. ¡ MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. JLrgus Office, Saturday evening. In the import market the week has been one continued holiday ; the few transactions har ing been for small parcels only. The effect of the recent dulness in trade is beginning to teil upon the stores, which are again becom ing crowded with goods. For some articles storage is not so readily obtained. The Oneida's advices have given rise to some discussion. The low rate at which en gagements for freight were being entered into was very tempting to shippers, but had not had tho efl'ect of bringing forward loading to anything like the extent required for the ton nage at the berths at London and Liverpool. Several fine ships had been taken off in con sequence, and others were taking in cargo, to complete, at prices that can but produce a loss. "We have "heard of 25s. and 27s. 6d. having been paid for measure ment goods. It is generally believed that the bulk of the shipments for the Australian summer seaso...

?jje liar. TUESDAY, 30TH DECEMBER. THE NEXT REVOLUTION. Wirx Italy be the centre, or will it beat the circumference of the nest European convulsion ? A month ago, regarding the aspect of affairs from our own dis- I tant point of view, it appeared probable that the storm would burst in Naples, j and travel northwards. The news re- 1 j ceived by the Oneida, however, is of I such a character as to induce us to be 1 lieve that Paris itself will be the seat ! and centre of the next revolutionary movement that will occur upon the con tinent of Europe- It was a Frenchman who declared that "the belly governs the world," and he deduced this preposition from a knowledge of his own country men in particular, as well as from that of mankind in general. It is from this re bellious part of a Parisian's organiza tion that we may expect the next revo lution to originate. The same ominous cries are heard in the French capital which were the unheeded prelude to the terrible events of the first revolu...
