SCOTCH COLLEGE AND CHURCH OF ENGLAND GRAMMAR SCHOOLBOYS' BOAT RACE. The banks of the Yarra presented a most animated appearance on the occasion of the match being rowed off by the Sootoh College and Church of England Grammar Sohool boys, on Thursday, the 18th of June. . Nothing oonld s exceed the enthusiasm;; displayed by, friends of the rival crews, even ladies snugly ensconced' under the willows'V of 'the' Botanical '; Gardens.'being; evidently' aa strongly Jmoyed' by; partisanship as the lads who had just arrived in hot haste from the class-room. The Scotch men were tho lighter crew, with the lightest boatj an advantage which the heavier metal of the Grammar Sohool conld not overcome, in spite of every effort in what was from the start a losing race. Better circumstanced, the latter might have turned the tables on their oppo nents, for,, as - it was, little ? more than, a length separated. the boats . at the finish.

ANOTHER LOST CHILD. . [DAYIiESFORn JTERCuiiy, JOtV 8.] Blanket Flat has .supplied an episode, which, if not as painful and exciting as that of the lost children, forcibly impresses one with the dangers to whioh the very young are exposed in winter in this thickly-wooded region of the colony. About one p.m. .on Monday, a son of Mr E coles, dairyman, strayed from his home and oould not be found. As soon as the fact became known, nearly 200 persons, with that self-denying zeal that so .honorably distin guished the inhabitants of the district on a similar occasion last year, commenced a vigorous search for the little wanderer. After continuing their exertions till two a.m. yesterday, the moon light failing, it was resolved to discontinue exertions till morning. At eight aim. yester day, all the miners working in the Corinella Paddock with -others, to the number of nearly 500, hold a meeting dt the instance of Mr Edwards, the manager of the Port Philip Com pany, and decided en masse to h...

TRAGEDY xsiSAR HARGRAVES. [PBOM THE WEBTEItN POST.l The Western Post gives the following fall account of a shocking tragedy ;: — . One of the most horrible murders that has oocurred in the colony for some time past was perpetrated at a place called Ironbank Flat, about eight miles from Hargraves, oh the 23rd ult. A man, named Ralph Lee, a store keeper, resided there with his wife and four children, and by this massacre (for we can term it nothing else) the poor woman has lost her husband and two of her children. From the fact that she was absent from home at tbe time, the shock will prove all the moro severe ; but from the ruthless nature of the murder, there can be no reasonable doubt but had tho mother been present, sho would have been lolled by the brutal villain who has committed the outrage. From the fact that Leo and his children were alone in tho house at the time, the night being unusually dark, nnd tho evi dence as to identification of tho murderer boing all the more diffic...

Smith had been sufiering from ill health for a length of timo, consequent upon the arduous duties he had been engaged in daring the many years he was connected with the police force, and for Bomo timo his recovery was considered hopoless. Mr Smith will be remembered as one of tho oldest members of the force, and one to whom the colony is at the present time indebted for a great part of the system of ori minal sorvoillanco now in practice. He arrived in the colony in 1852, in company with a Mr Wright and party, having been entrusted with tho management of certain squatting properties belonging to the Royal Bank, London.

CALIFORNIAN BREADSTUFFS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 18 July 1868

CALiFORNIAN BREAD6TUFFS. [FBok THE S. A.. HE0I8TEB, JUNE 26lH.] We sincerely pity those who have to take any ' praotical interest in Californian market reports. Tiiey are so thoroughly consistent in their inconsistency, so regular in contradicting each other, and so utterly regardless of what their readers may think of them, that they ought to be treated simply as literary curiosi ties. A month ago we received San Francisco advices via Panama to the lOtli March, which represented thp local market . as being in the last stage. of tightness. The stocks of wnofit and flour had declined to a minimum, quota tions were advancing, and it was expeoted that little bnsiuoss would be done prior to the de livery of the . new crop. Similar intelligence from Valparaiso added to the consequent im probability of our receiving jnuoh relief during the present seaspii from * Pnpiiio shipments. Both in Adelaide and Melbourne . prices showed a hardening tendenoy, and holders of breadstuff's thought that...

FATAL FIRE AT SANDRIDGE. A fire, attended with considerable destruc tion of property and the loss of two lives, oo curred early on Wednesday, 1st inst., at Sand ridge. The fire originated in on old wooden house, and although it was discovered in a few minutes after breaking out, the flames extended with such rapidity that within two hours they had destroyed the whole of the build ings standing on the north corner allotment of land at the junction of Bay and Beeoh streets, and immediately facing the Sandridge Town Pier. The corner portion of the allotment was occupied by the Pier Hotel, a building con structed of brick ; and round this hotel was a number of small shops and dwellings, .and also some extensive stables.

A MARVELLOUS ESCAPE. PLEASANT CREEK CHRONICLE, JUNE 30.]   Great alarm was excited on Saturday night last by the report of the disappearance of Mr Ronald Campbell, a member of the Stawell Council and late M.L.A. for Crowlands. One of his dogs had been seen during the day about the dam of the Moonlight crushing ma chine, and it was conjectured that the unfor tunate gentleman had fallen into the dam at nightfall and been drowned. The dam was accordingly dragged on Saturday night about twelve o'clock, bat without success. The feeling, however, became prevalent that Mr Campbell was lost, inasmuch as he had not been seen since Friday night. Accordingly, Mr ?Thos. Mawson, the bellman, early on Sunday morning patrolled the town and neighborhood, warning all persons of Mr Campbell's disap pearance. As the bellman reached the Sir Charles Darling bine of reef, and sounded his bell, tho people naturally came out to hear the news. Amongst them wero Andrew and Alex ander Robertson, ...

What; with Downing-street interference, the Governor's perplexity, the difficulties at . tending every suggestion of a compromise, the sore trial of the people's patience, and the over thickening complications, it was a hard matter indeed to forecast the final issue. Just when we were all at our wits' end, the mail arrived bringing the news that Sir' Charles Darling having been restored to his po sition in the service of the Grown, and having been promised compensation for the loss incurred by- his recall, had decided to foJtego the acceptance of oar proposed grant.
