MISCELLNEA. THE VINE AT SWAN RIVER.—The rapid growth and abundant fruitfulness of the vine in this colony, together with the ready man- ner in which it at once adapts itself to our soil and climate, has long excited very just admiration. Another example, worthy to be recorded among the rest, is now afforded by the success which has attended the rearing of the very valuable cuttings lately imported from New South Wales. These cuttings were planted only eighteen months ago, and several of them are now bearing fruit ; in the garden of William Henry Mackie, Esq., there is one from which a bunch of grapes was gathered on Monday last, weighing nearly 1 lb. Those cuttings, thirty-two in number, were imported from the botanical garden at Sydney, where they were selected as the thirty-two best sorts out of between 700 and 800 choice varieties ; a fact which at once establishes their very great value. It will be gratifying to those friendly per- sons in Sydney, by whose kindness these cutting...

THREE yours have well nigh elapsed, since &nbsp; Lord Stanley addressed a despatch to the then head of the Local Government, in which, after referring to the views of Her Majesty's Government in respect to male convicts, his Lordship proceeds to state what they are, in reference " to an equally im- portant, and in some respects a more diffi- cult subject," their application to female convicts. His Lordship, in that despatch, which has never been published here, says : " The difficulties are greater, inasmuch as those with whom we have to deal, are in general as fully depraved as the male con- victs, while it is impossible to subject them to the same course of discipline, and thus no alternative seems to be left, but either to detain them in actual confinement, or to permit them to enter, in some mode or other, into the mass of the population, where the knowledge of their former char...
