NEW SOUTH WALES. GoDLBüßK, ¿UNE 24.-GKEAT FLOOB. From the 20th instant to the present time, there has been an almost constant rain ; but yesterday evening it poured incessantly. Great fears were entertained that we were going to have a flood ; two or three months ago there was a warning given by the conductors of this paper, to those residing in situations exposed to flood to be aware, and to remove as the winter «ras expected to-be of such a nature as j to put them in peril ; the prediction has proved to be correct in this district, for ail the inconvenience and danger arising from floods have been felt by those located in low situations.

EDITORIAL OPINIONS. THE MERRY MINISTRY. j Sir John Tyrell's compliment to Minis- ters, after Walpole's Militia pali'iode last night, had a curious felicity, which failed not to meet immediate and amused appre- ciation. "They" [Ministers.] said their staunch North Essex ' Bully Baclt^ '* had shown that they had the power, the capa ' city, and ability to BEING FORWARD MEA I SUEES OF A WELL CONSIDERED CHARACTER j (ironical cheers and laughter from the Op- position.)" We observe aftemnts to represent the grave and gentle Home Secretary, in this matter, as the silly dupe of a mere mys Itification, and " after-dinner joke of Lord Derby."

Osborne last night informed the House), " in 1831 laid on the table of that house thc precise motion which the right hon. gentleman the Home Secretary had just withdrawn "- (the clause constituting two years' service in ...

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 5 August 1852
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. THE Second Annual General Meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held on Monday last, to receive from the Committee a Report of the proceedings for the expiring' year, and to elect officers and fill up vacan- cies for the ensuing one. The position occupied by the Chamber of Commerce renders the report of its Committee a docu- ment of great importance to che comuunity, certainly not inferior in interest to his Ex- cellency's addresses to the Legislative Council ; indeed it may be doubted whether any exposition of a policical character i merely is equal to it in practical value and intense attractiveness. We regret much, j therefore, that the Committee have notena j bled us to publish their leport, or at least a ! compendium of it, in our present issue. In ' our next we hope to give oar readers a con- densed view^of its statements, accompanied with such comment as it may demand. From the financial statement laid before ' the Chamber on Monday we find its present ;...

To suit and supply its markets Í will be the study of the merchant princes of Europe j to traffic iu its produce their best branch of business ; to share in reap- ing its golden harvests their legitimate and strenuous aim. Yankee acumen will not neglect a richer California, nor aliow itself to be outrun in tbe race for wealth. And even the children of the Celestial Empire itself cannot resist the allurements of gold, and are "already presenting their MoDgolion visages arnon g the holes and tents of Mount Alexander. It is a source of pleasure to all lovers of this land, that so much attention will inevitably te directed towards it, and it will be thc fault of the colonists them- selves if tbey do not secure the lion's share of the profit which must result from this unprecedented activity.
