LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The proceedings connected with the i opening of Parliament did not take place till two o'clock on the 25tli ult.,: and the Storm Bird left Melbourne at eleven, con sequently we could not receive the intelli gence by the usual conveyance, and were debarred the pleasure we should have had in" placing the report before our readers on an earlier day.

By Mr. Lightfoot, in the evidence he gave, he stated that " I was a lurker between the Creek and Stratford." * This is erroneous, for I have not been to the latter place for upwards of twelve months. In the next place he swore that it was myself that proposed to give ten shillings towards a charitable Institution if lie would withdraw the information. In this Mr. Lightfoot is entirely wrong. lie charged me with having played him a slippery trick in not fencing, some land of his in conformity with my agreement; the fact being that I agreed with him to finish the fencing in six months. Mr. Lightfoot wrote out an agreement, in which the time stipulated for the completion of fencing was six weeks inst...

Friday, l9</i December, 18-56. IMMIGRATION AND IMMIGRANTS. It will be-observed that Mr. King1 asked the question of which he had given no tice respecting' the number of immigrants introduced into the Colony this year, and how they had been distributed. It will also be seen, from the reply of Mr. Gliil ders, that,since the 1st of. January last up Avards of 4000 had arrived, and of that number just thirteen had been sent to Gipps Land, or, in the words of Mr. Chil ders, " only thirteen souls had consented to go there." . After this plain statement Mr. Childers indulged in a little bit of fencing, and at tempted to divert attention from Mr. King's question by affecting- to understand it as referring- to' the vote of last session, which, lie said, was not yet in operation. But whether or not the vote of last ses sion is in operation, it is quite clear that Gipps Land was Sheared for in the matter of immigrants as well as in everything else. As we understand the vote of last s...
