A REPORT of a meeting in the Argus of the 29th lnt., which was held at the offices of SMessrs. Beauchamp and Rocke, Collins street, proves the existence of an appalling amount of distress in and about Melbourne. . Every charitable institution is besieged by Slegions of sick and destitute people, who are turned away through want of room, as . well as want of means.

There is Sno mistaking the real thing; and that real adistress should in ordinary times, without any particular predisposing causes, assume Sthe present gigantic and terrible form in SMelbourne, described by the speakers at Sthe meeting, is deplorable. The rapid in Screase of destitution is truly awful. " Mr. Greig, superintendent of the Im migrants' Aid Society, to show that the number of destitute persons is greatly on the incre...

MAKING IT A CAUTION. By an nnfortunate Shareholder in the late Company of Victorian Flats. (Continbued from our Zast.) THE DAWN OF aEASON. When a man reaches the climax of folly he very often catches a faint glimpse of reason, too faint, alas, in many instances, to be of service in showing the path of escape from ridicule and mortification.

But so it was with me. I had begun to fancy that the happiness of the whole human race depended on the success of the Victoria Flats. I purchased six copies of the Ai'Iror Noose, as it is popu larly calkUd, containing an account of that highly lucrative concern in prospective, the Flat Victoria Company. I carefully directed-them to my friends at home, and, of course,...
