THE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE. The following is the report of the Registrar General on that portion of the census returns re lating to the education of the people : — ? Registrar-General's Office, Melbourne, 20th September, 1864. Sir. — 1 have the honor to submit the returns of the education of the people, as compiled from the census taken on the 7th April, 1861. These returns give an account of the numbers and ages of those persons who have acquired the rudimentary arts of reading and writing, but do not supply any particulars of the higher branches of knowledge, which many such persons also possess. The returns are, however, a most valuable addition to our statistical knowledge, presenting as they do a means of ascertaining, not only the minimum amount of literary instruction existing among our adults, but also observing to some extent the re sults that have accrued from past educational' sys- tems, upon which sueh vast sums of public money, and bo large an amount of official labor,...

TBI&I. OF A GUN-RAFT AT WILLIAMS . , : town. -On Saturday, 3rd inst., a trial of the new gun raftj intended, we believe! as the first of a flotilla of similar vessels hereafter to be constructed to assist in. the defence of HobBon's Bay, was made at Wil liamstown, in the presence of Mr Verdon and several officers of the volunteer marine service. The raft, which was built at the Government marine yard, under the superintendence of Mr Elder, foreman, originated in an idea which suggested itself to Mr Verdon when examining .some plans sent out by the Admiralty, of newlyr' designed pontoon boats for crossing rivers, &c, and -was again brought under Mb notice by a contrivance * adopted with success during the New Zealand warj in which a boat having been divided longitudinally and boxed in at the sides, was c6vered over with planking arid converted into a highly useful raft. With materials somewhat similar, but applied in a more useful manner, the present raft has been con...

&LENELG, SOUTH AUSTRALIA— ARRIVAL OF THE MAIL. - The arrival of the English mail steamer at Glenelg, South Australia, is always an exciting event, especially when a really good race' takes place between the boats of rival newpaper correspondents and' telegraphic agents. Olenelg, with the exception of the coaling station in King George's, Sound, is the first Australian port at which the mail steamer touches, and it. is from Adelaide, which is situated about seven miles distant, that the news is telegraphed to Victoria and the adja cent colonies. The object of each reporter is, of course, to board the yossel first and obtaiii his. packet of news, so as to able ..to obtain possession of tho wire before his competitors.
