DAILY ISSUE. » WEDNESDAY, 1ST FEBRUARY, 186 LAST night, in Committee of Ways and Means, the discussion of the new financial scheme was resumed, and it is possible (for while we write our report of Parliamentary intelligence has not been received) that it has been carried, or that it will be at an early date. With such a dire calamity hanging over the country it is impossible to interest our readers in any other subject, and we shall therefore recur to its consideration. And first of Monday afternoon's meeting. To our great surprise wo find that some per sons persist in saying that the terms of the advertisement caliing that meeting justified the action of the few noisy protectionists who interfered to interrupt the proceedings.

TIIE STIEGLITZ QUARTZ IiEEFS. No district near Ballaraf; receives moro attention just now than Stieglitz, and tlio attractions of tho place to tho mining capitalist aud speculator are increasing in proportion as its capabilities are becom ing known out ot' the circle of its old and iiithorto, it must be said, secluded population. Muibourue and Geelong capital has beeu expended here, but with results far below what ought to h^vo been acliievod had the business of gold mining been practically understood by those who laid out their money. The returns published from time to time are of them selves Buiiicieut to establish tho title of the gold-field to rank among the highest of quartz miuing localities.
