For some days pre viously the weather wan unsatisfactory, and on the Derby day, the 31st October, oulminatcd in a dust storm, followed by a fall of rain almost tropical in its violonoc and intensity. Fortu nately affairs then took a turn for the better, and, although the weather throughout the meet ing was variable, the Cnp was run on Tuesday, the 3rd November, on one of tho most glorious spring days over witnessed in Australia. The attendance on Derby day, for the reason indi cated, was below the avorage, thousands of people who had arranged to visit the course being obliged to turn back rather than run the risk attendant upon exposure to the storm on the racecourse.

The announcement of the death of Dr. John Singleton will be received with regret, not only by the class brought immediately into contact with the deceased gentlemen, the poor and the suffering, but by the public generally to whom the figure of the veteran philanthropist was as familiar as it was respected. Dr. John Singleton was born in Dublin on 2nd   January, 1808. He was one of a family of   nine children, six sons and three daughters, and, as he evinocd at an early date a decided par- tiality for the medical profession, attended at the Apothecaries' Hall, where he passed the classical examination at 14 years of age.

She is commanded by Captain H. Domyttenacre, and left Hamburg on th« 7th September with coals sufficient to carry her to Australia.

It would bo difficult to find another plnoo where in comparatively smnll oompnss such a host of Eiffel towor-liko oroo tions lift their giant forms against tho sky. Assuredly thoao enormous buildings woro not constructed for architectural offeot. They are hives of industry, and many of them sholter hundreds of busy porsons engaged in all sorts of enterprises.
