OFFICIAL documents inform us that during the year 1857 the Emigration Commissioners despatched eleven ships to this colony convey- ing 3,239 persons. Of this number 1,985 were nominated by colonists, and 1,254 were selected by the Commissioners. The nominated emigrants were 1,426 from Ireland, and 559 from England and Scotland. The emigrants selected by the Commissioners were exclusively English and Scotch, the selection being intentional in this respect, and designed, as far as possible, to re- store the due proportion of the several nation- alities. Taking into account the whole of the year's emigration, the Irish exceeded their pro- portion by 84 per cent. : looking only at the nominated emigrants, the Irish exceeded their proportion in the ratio of 201 per cent. On the aggregate emigration of the year the English and Scotch fell short of their due proportion by 26 per cent. ; their deficiency on the nominated emigration being 63 per cent. The nominated emigrants shipped during 1...

LATER INTELLIGENCE. [From our Commercial Correspondent.] Melbourne, August 31. To-day's transactions have been neither large in amount nor satisfactory in prices. A portion of the Bessie Young's cargo of sugar, from Mauritius, was offered at auction, but only a very little was placed, though previous quota- tions Avere fully maintained. There has been some enquiry privately for good brandy,' and also for geneva. Several lots of Scotch oats have changed bauds at 5s. 3d. to 5s. (3d. Flour is nominal ; for small lots £18 to £19 lias been realised, but for large parcels much lower has been taken. Wheat and bran are unchanged in price.

MARKET BEPORT. Adelaide, Tuesday, August 31,1858. The Augusta Kaufmann's cargo was offered by Messrs. Wickstced & Co. to-day, but the trade exhibited great reluctance to purchase any quantity, and most of it was withdrawn for prices considerably over the biddings.

MILLET. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 1 September 1858
MILLET. To the Editor of the Advep.tisek.. Sir-For the information of your readers, I beg to say last year, at this time, I purchased 1 lb. of millet seed in Adelaide for 8d. This I sowed on about a quarter of an acre of ploughed Land. Tlie result was that in 90 days I had my crop ripe, but being engaged in other matters at the time, a great deal of seed was lost, but I presume if all had been saved I should have had at the rate of 30 bushels to the acre. Tho straw (about 4 feet liMi) would, I presume, have boen abou* five ton= to tli3 acra if cut for hay, and from the fact of my cattle devouring ii so greedily after I had thrashed "the seed out Í believe it would make superior liar, if cut in a moro green state, that either oats, wheat, or borley, and it can be? sown now, and is oft" the land in 91» days again. This is a great desideratum to some people. Yours, &c, X. Y. Z. P.S.-Can any one give a few hints on the cultivation: of gram ? If so, I sliall considérât a great fa...
POST-OFFICES. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 1 September 1858
POST-OFFICES. To the Editor of tho Advertiser. Sir-"Will you allow me through your valuable journal to caution the public, when posting letters in any of the petty post-offices, to see the name of place where posted, and also date marked on envelope, be-fore leaving, espe- cially where they have no regular post stamps, it being of great consequence, as the following will prove :-On, Wednesday last, the 11th ult., I sent my son to post a note atone of these offices ; it contained a bill for a debt, which, if not paid in so many days, J intendtd to sue for at the Local Court, Strathalbyn, which was to be held fourteen days after posting the bill. The amount of Lill not forthcoming, it of course went to Court, when to my surprise tho envelope was found to be elated the 14th, instead of the 11th. being the day it was posted, and through this I lost the costs of the Court, for as it was re- presented, I had given too short a notice. The note lc*a prove was written on the 10th, and posted...

The Register says that Editors have no business at public meetings. Let no one think that we misquote our contemporary, for he really asserts and tries to defend this position. The Editor of the Advertiser a few nights ago attended a public meeting of " citizens" in Adelaide, to record his protest against Government officers who were not amenable to Parliament, hold- ing seats therein ; and that circumstance has offended the Register, which says .that " editors have no business at public meetings," as it is not their "sphere." Now we have not the slightest disposition to dispute the right of the Editor of the Register to determine in what " sphere" his own influence shall be exerted, but we really do object to his defining ours. If the Editor of the Register feels that he can do better with " the talent of silence" than with "the gift of tongues," of course he can hold his peace. But as the fox which had lost his tail could not induce his brethren to adopt a tailless model for thems...

PAitLiAMCXTARTproceedings on Tuesday ,allhough not including any great questions, were not with- out considerable public interest. The address to His Excellency in reply to the inaugural speech was moved and seconded by Messrs. Baker and Ayers, who appeared, however, to be by no means satisfied with the speech to which they had pre- pared the response. Some other routine business occupied the attention of the Council, for which; w e must refer to our report, but we cannot pass over without remark the action of the Legisla htive Council in reference to the address of congratulation to IT cr Majesty on the marriage of the Princess Royal of England. The address was considered in Committee of the whole Council, the President having left the chair ; and afler its adoption Mr. Ayers obtained leave to give notice of motion to the effect that Mr. Baker, who intends shortly to visit England, should be deputed to present the address in per- son to Her Majesty. As several leading mem- bers of ...
