AUSTRIAN VIEW OF RUSSIAN POLICY. (From the Vienna Wanderer.) Beneath the bit apparently tranquil Hurlace a profound agitation pervades the general affairs and aspects of na tions.

Terrific Flood and Loss of Life.—Anothor calamity has jiust befallen us, the full magnitude of which it will bo impossible for some time to ascertain. Sunday morning was remarkable for its oppressive heat, and by about one o'clock clouds black and lowering were to be seen rising in every direction.

In anqther column appears a very temperately written letter, commenting upon an article recentr }y published in the Advertiser, respecting an ex traordinary manifesto, emanating from the " Sab hath Observance Society." This article has been copied into the Age, and we understand has ex cited some, interest in Melbourne, simply because it ventures to condemn the indications of a spirit in a portion of the clergy of the colony that is likely, unless it is curbed, of developing into an intolerr able arrogance and inquisitorial interference with secular tjffairs. The people of Victoria lifjye some thing to learn if they (Iq not perceive that such a manifesto as that alluded to, is a direct infring iiient on public liberty. We have seen columns of leaders in the Times devoted to mercilessly stigmatizing the system of denouncing from the altar,, bo. prevalent in ...

THE BENSON FUND. {To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) Dear Sir,—Owing to so few people being in town last Saturday, no collection was made for Mr. Benson, as his friends thought it would be much better to wait until next Saturday, when possibly there might be a larger number of people in Sandhurst. I have therefore to announce through your columns, that myself and others will sit near the Shamrock Hotel, beginning at 3 o'clock p.m., for the purpose of affording every one an opportunity of giving their mite to the Benson Fund. I sincerely trust that the diggers will be as liberal as possible, and enable the committee to raise the total amount required. Yours very truly, W. D. C. DENOVAN. Dec. 10th, 1855. N.B.—This is the last opportunity I shall have of asking the diggers of Bendigo to subscribe to the Benson Fund; I therefore hope that my appeal will not be in vain."

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Iicndigo Advertiser.) Sandhurst, 12tU December, 1855. Sir,—I am indeed glad that you ure so alive to the interest of tbe digger, and can see that through him you —aye, the country—rise or fall. Your insertion of this will oblige not only myself, but many of my brother diggers. Fellow Diggers, Minors, &c,—Your fellow-man wishes to call your attention to two classes of tradesmen by whom you are moat " illcgantly fleeced." 1st, the baker ! If a rise takes place of .£3 or £i per ton on Hour, yon are immediately [saddled with 3d. per 2 lb. loaf extra. Now, 3d. per 2-lb. loaf is equal to £52 10s. per ton for flour ; or 9d. per loaf i'137 10s. per ton for flour. Now, as flour 1ms only lately risen to £35 per tou, it follows that Mr. Baker actually pockets about lOd. per 2-lb. loaf profit, or more than cent, per cent.

Key-turning is done thus:—Take, say a common room-door key, and as it requires for the experiment some weight to be added,—in this instance a book was taken, the lower part of the key was inserted between the leaves, and a piece of siring bound round to keep them together; the key is then suspended on the points of the fingers of two persons—or it will do between the points of the fingers of the right and left hand of the same ...

The firrival of tlio Invincible from Liverpool brings the details of the fall of Sebastopol, the particulars of which will lie transferred to your columns, and will be found highly interesting. It is confidently predicted that the northern forts must shortly fall into our hands,—an event which appears inevitable. The allies. are operating to take'the'Russians in flank. The retreat of the enemy must become for them perilous in the ex treme. The disposition of the allied forces, and the combinations , arranged for the operations of the allies upon different points, must prove suc cessful, and place the Russian forces m the Crimea in a very precarious position. The eon duct of the British Commander, General Simp son, has exposed him to severo censure.
