NYOT'E;S AdND El'NTS'. At the meeting of the Shire Council on Wednesday last, Conucillor Wilson stated that the Trustees of the Colase Public Gar dens wished to deliver up their trust, and place the Gardens under the control of the Council, conjointly with the Board of Land and Works. It was decided that the Trustees should make their application in writing in proper form, and the Council would then consider the matter favorably. Councillor Beal made some very sensible remarks re specting thc matter. The Trustees should have taken this step long since, for matters relating to the Gardens have been in a great muddle for some time past. Weare informed that MIr. II.

Our obituary notice on Saturday last recorded the death of Mr. James Broadbent, the father of the family, who died, after a long illness, on the previous Wednesday, and was buried, we believe, on Saturday. At the samen time Miss Louisa Broadben t the remaining unmarried daughter was ill with what Dr. Kerr, her medical ad viser, rdgarded as scarlatina, and she died on Monday evening, and was buried by her father's grave on Tuesday. Dr. Hudson, in :Dr. Kerr's absence, had been called in at the latest moment, but found the patient almnost In articulo mortis, and his diagnosis of the disease appears to make the cause of death to be retdeola cuas catarrho, or measles unde veloped outwards.

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The Age reports :-Transactions to-day were of the limited character usual on the closing day of the week, the markets gene rally wearing a decidedly quiet aspect. Breadstuffs are firm, the offerings being within a moderate compass. A fair trade demand for flour is experienced, but the ex cessive competition prevailing amongst millers prevents remunerative rates from being obtained. -This practice of forcing business will, it is said, Iced to one firm re tiring from the contest. City made flour, though quoted at £11 15s to £12, is some times sold at a concession. Country brands are firm at £11 15s for choice marks. Wheat is steady at 5s 4.d, bags included, for blest Northern; arrivals are not so heavy, and the period of heavy deliveries seems to be drawing to a close.

A claim, rivalling in interest but more genuine in character than that made by Arthur Ortons in the great Tichborne case, is, I understand, shortlyto be brought before the English courts by a resident in one of the suburbs of this city. The property in question comprises a freehold estate in the heart of London, valued at the loweat esti mate at £400,000, and the claimant is Mr. Henry George Hodge, of South Yarra, coach builder, who, it appears, is the lineal de scendant of a Mr. Edward Smith, of Ludgate Hill, London. Edward Smith, who was a laceman in a very extensive way of business, died in January, 1790, leaving the whole of his property to one Sarah Collins and her issue, and in the event of the failure of such issue to revert to his own next of 'lkin. The line through the immediate legatee having become extinct, the property fell into the hands of the curator of intestate estates, alul it is only quite recently that Mr. Hodge has discovered that he is...

LATEST AUSTRALIAN TELEGRAMS. (AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS TELEGRAMS.) MELBOURNE, March 27. It is rumored that a want of con fidence motion will be proposed to morrow, if the Service and Berry parties can unite, but it is doubtful. The Government do not intend to ask for Treasury Bills, but to-morrow will probably introduce a loan bill for £2,800,000 for railways and water works. The Government, however, will not bring down any railway pro posal this session. The overdue ship, Fiji, arrived to day. She brings a quantity of the plant and the engines for Deniliquin and Moama railway. The salmon ova for New Zealand was shipped to-day, well packed. The Rev. Dr. Russell died on board the Hampshire in February last very suddenly. IIe had preached on the previous day. The full effects of Saturday's storm has been felt over nearly the whole country, and it has caused a good deal of damage.
