Caution to the Home Secretary.-A post mistress at one of the branch receiving houses, at Sheffield, has this week been sentenced to ten years' transportation for breaking open a letter. Another female at Acomb, near York, has also just been apprehended for breaking open the seal of a letter. We would, therefore, caution the Home Secretary that letters are no longer to be "Grahamed" with impunity. A calculation has been made by a late accurate philologist that there are 13,000 words in common use in England which do not appear in any dictionary of the language.

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Business has rather improved upon the previous week. We have observed about 48 wool drays pass through this week. Most articles remain about the same in price as in our last quotations, except sugar, which has advanced about £1 per ton. The tobacco ^crop in the neighbourhood of the Paterson and Allyn is said to have proved almost a failure, owing to the cold nights, heavy dews, and the quantity of rain which has lately fallen. The price of colonial manu- factured tobacco is now ranging in Maitland from 6d. to Is. 8d., and in Sydney from 6d. to Is. 6d. per lb. Some wheat of good quality has been brought into market, for which 2s. 9d. per bushel was demanded ; 2s. 8d. was offered, for the Sydney market, but refused; there has not yet been much new wheat brought into market. Maize is scarce, but does not realise more than £&d. or 9d. per bushel. ? English barley is realising about Is. 6d., but there are few purchasers. Vegetables still continue plentiful...
