-reports :-The course of the ). A ~fninets continues to be of a quiet and un -" 'interesting character, the inquiry for goods in the open market being too languid to impart the least appearance of activity. -Breadstuffs are easier, the sudden fall in . dc?dlid e rendering buyers very chary of operating, an incliiation which is intensi fled by the mention in the public telegrams from Adelaide that "the first shipment of new wheat to Melbourne has been made." 1)yers dwelling on this circusmstance with more weight than is due to the fact of a mere S! mouthful of the new grain being forwarded to this market as a sample. The decline in Adelaide is expected to cause a reduction in the price of best wheat here to Gs id to Gs 6d; and any- further chanige would be in sympathy with the movements in the neighborinmg . inmarket referred to, as our local supply is short and the harvest expected to be late.

THE speech delivered by M;r. SERVICE in the Assembly on Thursday evening last vwas a very remarkable one, and told with very damagingeffect againsttihe Ministry. Sir JaMMEs M'CuLLocU must have felt very uncomfortable indeed while IMr. SERVICE gradually withdrew the veil of speciousness and double dealing which has hitherto hidden the real character of the TREASURERi frOm the public. Seldom has any public man in this colony with any pretensions to statesmanship met with such a scathing condemnation, and we are very much mistaken if the utterances of MIr. SriviCE do not cause the downfall of the M'CULiocui -dministration. When comunencing Ijis speech, IMr. SEnviCE said that the TRE.iSURLEn had a very difuicult task to perform, and this difil culty lay in the fact "that he had to justify himself in the eyes of the House and the country for having during the past four months turned out two Goverimnents, and wasted four months of public time. lie had to justify himself in that respect or...

There was a fine muster of spec tators' present to witness the match. The day was all that could be desired by the most ardent cricketing enthusiast, and old Sol made amends for his past shyness by coming out in great force during the progress of the match. Play commenced about half past 12 o'clock, and Armfield, the Colac captain, having won the toss from Strachan, the Birregurra captain, elected to send his men in to tIle wickets. Mr. Skene acted a umpire for Colac, and Mr. Lambell performed the same duty for Birregurra.

CORRESPON.DENCE. [It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.--EDITroR ] A WAIL. S(TO TiHE EDITOR OF TILE IIERALD.) * Sin,-I am in great trouble, and desire to make known to a 'sympathising publie the wrongs which weigh me down. For a long time'I browsed quietly and cropped peace. fully the grass which flourished on the Market Square reserve. This spot was my sappy' hunting ground, and many pleasant hours have I spent upon it. But alas, all this has been changed, and I have been robbed of my sport and food, because the Shire Council spent the ratepayers' money in fencing-in the reserve, and making a burlesque plan for it to be laid out to. How ever, as there was plenty of grass growing on the reserve, I and my companions used occasionally munch a little through the railings, and looked forward with. pleasure to the time when this grass would be sold, for we were sure that our owners would purchase it, and we anticipate...
