Instead of, ship ments Iwing lessened or suspended, , they: appear to bo g'oing- on as usual, the conse quence is, that butter and candles have not improved, and both can be readily had at the prices which have been for some time ruling- here. The further advance in brand}' at home has caused much firmness, though little, if any, actual advance here; and the rise in the value of wines and spirits has been well maintained during- the week. In flour a further advance has taken place, and for a parcel of Adelaide £25 is said to have been refused; and a rise to ■£30 is confidently spoken of.

We give the following report:— Mr, Leonard: "Wray, from Prance, who lived several years in Africa, being called upon by Mr. Greely, made an interesting statement m relation to his culti vation of the imphy, or African sugar-cane, both in Africa and Prance, where sixty per cent, of the weight of cane in juice was obtained by a very inefficient mill, wlii cli gave fourteen to seven teen per cent, of sugar. In Spain this cane was still richer.. It is true that some difficulty has occurred in making granu lated sugar, which Mr. "VVray has overcome.

Improvements in Firearms.—The Enfield rifle, hitherto considered the most perfect weapon of its kind, is'stated to ijfa- far surpassed by a rifle recently devi sed by Mr. Whitworth. , In the,course of some recent experiments at Hythe, the locality of the new " School of Musketry," the Whitworth rifle sent its bullet.into a target at a distance conside rably. ■ exceeding a mile (1,889 yards), while the Enfield rifle made no hits 1,400 yards. As regards accuracy, the Whit worth was nearly as good at 1,100 yards as the Enfield at 500; and when both were fired at 500 yards, the shooting of the former was three times as good as that of the latter. The ball from the Enfield weapon, charged with the regu Iation quantity of powder, penetrated twelve planks of elm, each half an inch thick, in succession—a respectable performance; the Whitworth rifle, underthe same conditions, actually drove its bullet t...

In flour; Adelaide especially, there have been a number of speculative transactions and the last advices iram Adelaide have confirmed the previous week's advance. It is now held firmly at £24 10s to £25, and a further rise is still confidently an ticipated. There has not been any alteration in the prices of grain, though oats have not sold so 'freely, probably owing, to other d soriptions of feed being used, utid proba bly fron: the fact that a number of horses have been turned out in consequence of the high price of feed...
