Bomqstic ,fntJIige len . HARD TIras.-The labour market at WVilliams town, as usual at this season of the year, is not in a very flourishing condition. A great many labourers have recently been discharged from the railway works, and we understand that the number of men employed about the patent slip has been of late con siderably reduced.. The supply of labour therefore at the present time is much greater than the demand, while provisions, on the other hand, have increased in prices. On Monday last, the butchers issued a circular informing the public that, in consequence of the high price of cattle, beef and mutton had gone u?, to ,ielace aad elaightpenea a pound ; the hiaks ?ald -UI i - sa~w~U·- d oc an fldOmu, brroa had risen from tenpence to fourteenpence on the 41b. loaf ; and the dealers in vegetables, without giving any reason whatever that we can hear of, quietly advanced the price of potatoes from twelve shillings to sixteen shillings ,ecwt.

'THE-COLUMBIAN; AND HER NEWS. TnE remonstranCes ofithe Press here and in the neighbouring colony have stirred up Mr. Larmour, oftihe Eiropean .and Australian Mail Coinmpay, to a proper ifilderstanding of what he owes to the public. ..At last he has succeeded ini breaking asunder those red-tape fetters in which he was so long: bound hand and foot ;-at last he 'has mustered courage to' go beyonidthe !letter of his' instructions, and act on:the spirit of theni.: He has taken up, as we are informed, the City of Sydney, steamer,, for tlhe' next trip to Suez, and she will sail with the mails punctually on the 15th.

Do. EAna's LEcrTUn.-A lecture was delivered in the Athenaeum-of Williamstown, on Thursday night, the 2nd Inst., by Dr. Eades, on the Sense of Touch. There was a considerable number of ladies and gen tlemen of the scientifically-inquisitive portion of the community present. The talented lecturer, who pose sesses uncommon powers of delineation and great fluency of language, acquitted himself of his task in a masterly style. The enthusiasm and animation with which he entered into the description of the different animals which formed the subject of his lecture-thelr organization, habits, and methods of catching their prey-was such as to rivet attention and call forth loud repeated expressions of applause. To such an extent does Dr. Eades kindle, and grow warm, and glow as he rapidly passes from one portion of his subject to another, and such is the interest that he flinge around even the comparatively insignificant frog, that it would seem the lecturer was describing the storming of a f...

Notwithstanding the in clemency of the weather, the room was crowded to excess. T. MAsos, Esq., J. P., was unanimously voted to the chair, and introduced the subject by saying it was understood that the grant-or at any rate, a large portion of- it-which had'been voted by the Legislature a few days before for the improvement of our wharves and jetties, was to be devoted to ob jects thatwere totally unconnected with these works, and which werenotin anyway related to the interests of the town.
