AN ACCOMPLISHED SWINDLES, Tho' career of a rather accompltahtid owiadlof appears to have received a Ealutmy check at G'ee* long. , The, Register thus narrates tho circum* stances : — ' About Boven o'clock cm Monday evening a stylishly dressed young wan entered the 'Olive Branch Hotel, Moorabool-strett, and politoly' re quested the landlord to chance a small cheque 'for him ; only for £5 19s Gil, bo observed, adding that it was ono of young Ilarvey SI a den's, a schoolfellow of hiB, and the nephew of tho hbn Mr Sladen.

THE PEOPOSED NEW TAU1VF FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [fbom *jeib nUGitJijon, o.oxosan 6-1 Spirits, tobacco, tea, and sugar are the articles on tho fixed list which ? the Treasurer proposes to re duce. This pretty nearly corresponds with oar expectations of yesterday, tho only difference being thut whilst we mentioned, tea an likely, but pre ferred coffee ourselves, the Treasurer has gratified his own taste by 'allowing coli'ue to remain, and by reducing tea to the extent' of Id per lb. This is not a matter to split hairs upon. We hold that coffee is still rated high in proportion to tea, consi dering how far a pound of the one article ' will go,' to speak domestically, as compared with a pound of the other '; for in substituting the value of your week's coffoo for your. week's tea you must calculate how many pounds of Mocha you require in the place of one pound of Souohong.

A ' telegram from Sydney, on the 19th September, announced Dr. Mao adam's death on the passage from Melbourne to Dunedin, whither he had boon summoned to give profes sional evidence in a criminal case. He had been Buffering from ill health for some time previously, and wo believe nothing but a Bonne of duty induced him to disregard the opinion of his medical'advisers, who considered a sea voyago extremely hazardous in his then debilitated condition. At the time of his death, Dr. Macadam was bnt 38 years of age; and thore can bo littles doubt that to the various and onerous dnties he discharged for the public must be attributed in a great measure the shortening ef his days.

Tho prisoner, after being re moved from court on Thursday evening, in con sequence of his having fuinted, soon rallied ; and wo understand that he attributed tho attack partly to tho heat of the court, but mainly to his having caught sight of his two sons, Androw and England, looking intently at him. When placod in the dock yesterday morning, tho prisoner was very pale ; but he maintained his calmness during tho continuation of Mr JuHtice Richmond's charge, ulthough he must have felt that tho concluding portion of his Honor's remarks was calculated to tell strongly against him.
