Exemption- tooji Tom,-A< case came before Police Bondi on Saturday, which established a fact, not hitherto known it appears, to Toll. keepers,uif.nely,the ctemptloii of Military officers from tho payment of tolls. The case will be found in our Police report, where it will be seen that Colonel Perceval was the virtual prosecutor, and Mr, Oench the Toll-keeper on the Satidv Bay road, the défendent. It is rather strange that in the evce^tious provided for by the Act of Council, offij.-rs are not included, but bv the Mutiny Act of the Hritish Parliament, they are exempt«"!, and this law over-rides any Colonial enactment.

THE MERCURY ["punr.isirED nArr.v.] MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8,1858. The third reading of the General Revenue Loans' Bill in tho legislative Council stands an order of the day for to-morrow's sitting.

We should have much regretted the expur gatjou-Lof t!ie>e items on various grounds. The wprks proposed to ha performed under these items, are, in a sense as neces siry to posterity as to ourselves.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CITY ARTICLE. Mercury Office, Satuiday afternoon. In the early part of the week con- siderable briskness and activity were visible in the grain market at the closing quotations of last week. Wheat, how- ever, did not wholly recover the check it then received, and the last two or three days the downward tendency has been again apparent. Wheat at the commencement of the week was firm at 8s the best samples, but prices are now quoted at 7s öd to 8s, thou jh there is an evident disinclination on the part ol purchasers generally tq give, more than 7s 9d'. 'l\v.q or titree sales of old wheat of a very superior sample were effected to-day at sligntiy over 8,s, the excellence of the' quality accounting lor tua high figure. Buyers are rather indisposed to come forward, as they anticipate a fur- ther decline very shortly.
