Tins winter, however, so far as it bas gone, is making up for it. We have already had rain enough to swamp thfe Mount, and as fur the roads we are tired of alluding tothera, and afraid to ven> tureon them. We have,no District Coun cil here, as yet, to look after .our roads; and (therefore the rain and wheel ploughing have : reduced the mainy street of Mount Gambier to a resemblance to that grtat *' Serbonian bog," of which M ilton speaks, " where armies whole were lost*" It is uot merely the traffic that is jmpeded, but even education and-amusement. are interdicted The -children cannot, very well get to school, wh...

We have been frequently struck witli the fact ' that all the first-class steamers and sailing ves sels returning from Australia are crowded with ? passengers.; One would at first Suppose that * people arc leaving the country as fast as they come into it. The results of the recent census prove however that the number of arrivals ex ceeds that of departures, as the increase of the population in Victoria since 1857 is such as cannot be accounted for merely by the excess of . births over deaths, rtihese colonies are becom ing peopled by degrees,but with nothing like the rapidity which their popularity and known ' importance would ^seem to imply.. The num . hers that; leave the' ports of London and Liverpool for Melbourne are immense, but nearly ttob-thirds seem to find their ivay home . again.
