Summary of Mining | I Intelligence. I THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. SIUNG CREEK.-The population on this . portion of the diggings is v'sibly increas ing, and some of the miners are doing very well. It is well known that the whole of the flat opposite the Camp is very rich, and with the recollection of their previous successes it is singular that the miners.should not have returned to it sooner. At thc« New Rush many are doing very well. BE ECU WORTH is rather dull at present as far as mercantile affairs are concerned ; but its rapid advance as a town is notori ous. It is really an astonishing place, and surprises every one who comes to it as a stranger. We shall probably be gay for a few days in consequence of the St. Patrick's races, which come off this day. Several balls and amusements, among which is a grand Ethiopian entertainment at the Assembly Rooms, are advertised. REID'S CHEEK.-Mining operations are rather inactive in consequence of the want of water. SNAKE VALLEY....

Literature. . POLITICAL ECONOMY. '. ( Continued from our last J. CATITAL. ; - As soon as any thing was produced by labour, above what was necessary for im mediate consumption-as soon as the pro perty of the ground could be exchanged for something else, and men became possesed of various articles which faciliated the pro duction of others-capital was in existence. This is a thing of immense importance in political economy. It is evident that, while men ceuld only rear or make what they immediately needed, they were very ill pro vided. In order to be at all at their ease, it was necessary that they should have something stored up, to serve them in the ievent of a failure of crops, or of any other deranging circumstance. In order, more 'over, that one thing might be made, it was necessary that another (a tool, machine, or -other appliance) should previously exist ; and the more plentiful the first thing was, _the second could be produced so much the -more easily, and disposed of at so ...
