The principle adopted in former times by some of the Banks in tliu Australian Colonies of allowing interest on current accounts has lately been the subject of a deprecatory article ' in the Sydney Horning Hetald. We are not disposed to view this practice in its possible bearing upon the relative interests of local establishments, anil those which owe their position here to the power of English capitalists ; "in fact,'we are per- haps as competent as the authority men- tioned to regard it with the utmost im paitiality, but whether fiom this circum- stance or otherwise we are certainly compelle J to express an entirely adverse opinion to that of our contemporary. , The matter owes its ' revival at' the present time in the Australian metropolis to tho circular issued by the Oriental Bank, which announces that " on floating deposits it will allow an interest of two per cent., and on fixed deposits three' three and a half, and five per cent, according as they are made, for not less than ...

HEALTH RESTORED HOLLOWAYS PILLS Surprising Cure of a confirmed Asthma after five years' suffering. The following testimonial has been sent to Pro lessor Holloway, by a Gentleman named Mid dleton, ot Scotland Road, Liverpool. Sir,-Your Pills have been the means, under providence, of restoring me to sound health after five years of severe affliction. During the whole of that period, I suffered the most dread ul atta- cks of Asthma, frequently of several ueeks' dura- tion, attended with a violent cough, and continua spitting of phlegm intermixed with blood. That «o¡ shook my constitution that 1 was unfitted for any.of the active duties of life. I was attended dy some of the most eminent medical men of this town, but they failed to give me the slightest relief. As a last remedy I tried your Pill«, and in about three months they effected a perfect cure of the disease, totally eradicated the cough, and restored tone and vigour to the chest and digestiv organs.

RAILWAYS TO CONNECT THE AUSTRALIAN CAPITALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 30 September 1854

UAILWAYS TO CONNECT THE . AUSTRALIAN CAPITALS. Considerable attention has been excited in the cointnerci.il circles of-Sydney and Adelaide by a letter from the Governor of Sonth Australia (Sir H. Young) to Sir Charles Fitz Roy, enclosing another letter addressed to His Grace the Duke of New- castle, on the subject of a Railway to con- nect Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney i and as we believe the subject is Of very high importance to this colony also,we give a synopsis of the scheme and a fewrcinarks upon its main features. It appears that Sir H. F. Young had seen in the London newspapers some account of the efforts of private capitalists towards the establishment of a railway between Sydney and Melbourne. A con- sideration of the subject led to the belief by Sir Henry that the scheme might be ex- tended to Adelaide, und that such an undertaking could be carried out more beneficially by the aid of the Imperial Government. On the part of the colony over which he presides he proceeded t...
