There la atlll a demand for Colonial and National Bank. All insur ance are bear?. Australasian Fire and it trine have been mere freely offered io-day, in oonsequenoe of a very erroneous sutement which ap.>eared in the columns of a conteinporery, to the effect that a Melbourne Insuranoe company had a lien of £lO,OCO on the ilce cargo of the Otto, which had been nearly all jctsonel. The den, we pre sume, is an error, and ought to be "llae," otherwise the credit of the owner U Impertinently interfered with ; but ire suppose the error, and are In formed that the statemcut is very much exaggerated.

The Australasian. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 17 December 1864
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1861. Not for many a year has the mail brought to these colonies intelligence of such a storm, and so many disastrous shipwrecks, in the commercial world of England. It has not come, however, without warning. The premonitory symptoms of the gale were visible months ago; and if only the ill-manned and ill-found, the lightly-ballasted and rotten craft of the fleet have gone down, the loss to commerce will not in the end be great It is evident from the re ports and statistics which have readied us periodically, that the growth of trade in England has, of late years, been forced beyond the bounds to which it would have legitimately spread. In spite of the loss of the direct trade of the Southern States of America, of the em barrassments occasioned by the want of cotton, of short harvests and unparal leled distress in Lancashire, the re ports of the Board of Trade have borne testimony to an increase of trade and commerce altogether without a prece dent, even in Eng...
TOWN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 17 December 1864
TOWN NEWS. The Oolong Advertiter of yesterday con tains the following mysterious story: — " About the middle of Joly or August last, a young, handsome, and ladylike woman took lodgings at the St. George Hotel, representing hereelf to be a If re. Thomson, the wife of a squatter, and that she had come to Geelong from the country, for the purpose of being confined. In every respect she conducted her self as a lady while staying at the hotel, and was visited frequently by her husband from Melbourne, or some one representing himself to be SUcfa. There was nothing whatever to justify the suspicion that she was any other person than Mrs. Thomson'until afterwards. On the 7th of November last, she was confined, and intimated to the nurse that as Mr. Thom son and she were going to travel, she would like to get the baby dry-nursed. She at length succeeded In persuading a respectable married woman to take care of the child for a day and a night nntil she could go to Melbourne and return for it,...
