A most remarkable seafaring coinci
dence occurred on Jul' 30, in the almost,
simultaneous arrival of the barques
Otago (Captain Davison) and Christine
(Captain Wilfang) from Melbourne, after
an eight months' tour of the globe. They
both left originally for St. Vincent's
Gulf together, and thence within a few
hours of each other for Algoa Bay,
South Africa. In January last the Chris
tine left Port Pirie, and the Otago Port
Augusta; both were in Algoa Bay to
gether, and left there in company for
Mauritius, arriving at their destination
within three days of each other. They
were chartered there by the same agents
Blyth Brothers and Co., and once moie
quitted the same bay on the same day,
bound for the same port. They kept in
company nearly the whole way, bound
each for Melbourne, and passed Cape
Otway on the same day, arriving at
Melbourne almost together, the Chris
tine having a clay to the good. Business
concluded there, they once more quitted
Port Phillip Heads at the same hour,
and arrived at Newcastle within an hour
and a half of cacli other, the Christine
being the first to put in an appearance
round Nobby's. Their easting was mil
down on an average of about 40 degrees
S.; when about 87 S. and 50 E. both
vessels were so eloc in company that, on
several occasions just prior to striking
the trades, boats wcie lowered and their
masters pulled aboard, and mutually
entertained one another at lunch in
mid-ocean. A voyage almost round the
globe under such circumstances has
been seldom if ever recorded. 6 M.

they did as much on Tuo.'diy as t

The prisoners cost 05 cents a day each.
The saving in both time and money can
readily be seen.

In reference to this ti. linear business
it will be remembered that a bill was
brought before the lust Legislature to
chaiter an enterprise of this kind. The
projectors produced guarantees of $300,
000 that, of their requests were acceded
to," they would have it in operation in a
year. The idea of staiting such a thing
here was clearly theirs, they belong to
the country, and by all customary rights
no one should be allowed to s-lcp in and
take the fruits of their brains at any rale
till the Legislature has had an oppor
tunity of expressing an opinion.
From Our own Coi respondent.
Our Legislature takes leisure in
dealing with its work. The Upper
House has done but little during the
present session while tho Lower
House has been engaged on a pro
longed discussion on the Education
Bill; this Measure is' still before' the
House. The portion of the Bill
which proposes to increase the school
fees meets with great opposition and
many public meetings, throughout
the Province, have been held pro
testing against this clause. The
general feeling is, that if education
is compulsory, it should be free ;
and if the voice of the people is
heeded the Bill will cither bo very
much modified in Committee or
A Bill has been introduced by
the Government which proposes to
extend the great Northern Railway
still further into tho interior a dis
tance of about l.r0 miles with the
ultimate object of continuing it
across the Continent to Port Darwin
Splendid rains have fallen through
out tho colon' and although it is
premature to speak of the harvest
which is at least four months distant
yet tho prospects arc exceedingly
Our leading journal ("The Regis
ter") is passing under a cloud. One
of the members of the Executive
Council (The Hon. A. Catt) has
charged the said journal with
malicious libel. "The Register"
doubtless has been somewhat severe
in its comments on the Commission
er; still, it is questionable whether
he has not deserved all that has
been written about him. "Tho
Register" is an exceedingly well
conducted paper; fcnrless and out
spoken, but not more so than the
general public approves indeed,
public men, with large salaries from
the State must expect to have their
actions criticised in the public prints.
Mr. Catt, is a man of honest pur
pose and weight of character, but
he lacks that magnanimous grasp
and discernment requisite to make a
model Commissioner. The trial
now pending is a proof of this
assertion and he would have done
well to have loft it alone. Even
should he succeed (and no one ex
cept tho Commisionor thinks he
will) and have the journalist both
fined nnd imprisoned yet the issue
would be against his prudence, it
would put a bad mark upon him as
a public- man and sympathy would
he strongly in favor of the Register's
proprietor. O. B.
