MELBOURNE. FROM1 OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Friday, January 9. All the clerical world under the pastoral ruling of Bishop Mfoorihouse were neces eerily on the qui vive to pay their respects to their new diocesan: but a very large I gathering of the Church of England laity also availed themselves of the reception (or lev6e) accorded by Bishop Moorihouse and Mrs. Moorhouse. The new Diocesan Hall, recently built in William-street, afforded an excellent place for the recep tion, and, being so near the centres of busi neass enabled many of the laity to set aside a half hour to pay their respects without encroaching on their business avocations. The reception was conducted without noed less ostetation, His Lordship stood a few paces from the door and very heartily reciprocated the introductory shake of the hands, and word of friouendly greeting; thanking all very frankly and cordially for their words of welcome. Bishop Moor I ouse in person is a fine well set up man, of wiry, munscular physiq...

FAXRING IN SOUTH AUSTRA LIA -COMPARED WITH' VIC-. TORIA. Tnu January number10 of the. Mel bourne Rev iew opens with a paper by by the Hon. J. J. CASEr, late Vio torian Land Minister, in which the land systems of South Australia- and Victoria are conipared; and the com pariaon, It must be admitted, is not in favour of the' latter.. The -writer says:-" to a visitor tlhe "general "interest taken in farming by all " classes in South Australia is very 'c conspicuous. The condition of the " crops, the prospects of the harvest, " are everywhere discussed. No one " doubts but that farming is the i" nterest above all others to be "fostered." This shows the wisddm of the people, and in times of war or famine, the South Australians would have their own food ready to their hands when the other colonies, Vieo toria included, would be dependent on foreign countries for supplies. The legislature nnd people have followed BINKEt's directions and .-.* si. plough the first creditor, and no matter in w...
