MILT INTERESTING FMX AUSTRALIA. twnn"' Social, and Political Condition mt Um ttnat Gold Colony at the South Psclllc [From Um Mslboorae Age, Utnh 10.] OOUOIIOUL CONDITION. B k loag since all fears about the pmuoo; of tw gold folds bare been dissipated, and It to al ?ost onneeeesary, therefore, to Inform our Horo ?ean leaders that oar reputation aa tbe lint gold eeutry of tba word remains unimpaired, The esiglnsl conjectore aa to the geographical extent of ?arifetous territory continues to reoetre daily con tirmation. Fiom Lake Omeo, on tba eastern aide Of tbe color y to the Portland district on the treat, Me yellow patches which used to indicate the gold aa localities on the map am tow becoming a ooo ttenous line. The old Hilda are at 111 drawing a luge population, while the new one*, by multiply ing the points of attraction, tend to prevent that concentration which d train lane* to* chances of suo ?ess. and eaconiagta tbe idea prevalent among the ali diggers, who need to have more elbow room for tbeir operations than they have had latterly, that there will never be au3h chances again aa there were in the palmy days of Bendigo ana Mount Alexander. The idea, however, ia proved to be er roseous even by statistical computation, though this ia itself an erroneoui method of testing tbe ag gregate accumulation of gold in the haiida of the iiggera. A practical refutation has alio been lately given to another onirent error on the gold fields, namely, that all tbe bast fields were first discovered. This was a very puullng theory to "new chums," who oculd not understand why Providence, af cer keeping her secret so long, should have divulged her choicest treasures to tbe first explorers, f hia was ?at by the assertion that "all the country" had b*en *"proipo( ted" without effect; but it haa now bnoome evident that the laboia of a few men are iaanfllcient to teat the auriferous resources of a district, and that a '?rush'' alone ia adequate to th.t extensive Making wbi h is neoessary to strike upon those ar terial ikes which are now found to ramuy the whole country. In addition to the unlimited extent of our alluvial deposits, our quaitz ianges promise to be a sourci ef wealth, equally, if not more, prodflo. C msidera ble attention has been paid of late to qaartz miuirg and the results have been very gratifying. We bu ?eve that, either throush the poverty of tie quartz, tbe deficiency of tbe machinery, or through tte di? haaesty of tLc compaiiits, or through all these enaea combined, qoar<z mining has proved a com parative failure in Calif -iriiis; but It is likely to prove very much t e reverse here. The Australian quartz is pronounced by experienced miaersto be decidedly richer than that oi Call'orni*; and if t ie reports which we have h?<d respecting its value he anything like tbe truth, quartz mining will prove tbe redemption of tbe cok>oy. Id fact, now that land Jobbing ia knocked on tbe bead, and as spaou lation can only change Its object -not its nature ? the quartz mania will take its plaoe. We cm oaly hope? as, indeed, we are sure? that it will ba at< tended with better r< suits. There could not be a more oonolu3ive proof of tbe dnormous wealth whieh has been Lflowing from the ??ld fields than the fact tha'. tbe commercial crash which waa generally predicted so ne months ago has heen averted. That a crash was probable, feir at that time ventured to dispute. Tae cause of this wee not to besought merely in the fact that our lm poyte had been excessive and ill adapted to our wants. * * * it is not so much by direct leases- though theee In many cases have been se vere?that our leading men have been crippled, as by getting their capital "looked up" (that's the ?Hue) In land speculations and buildirg opera bens. The land maaia came first, and the build leg mania followed. * * * The building m tola kept up tbe excitement and maintained the val ie of the land, till Melbourne waa - crow Jed with sub stantial stores and comfortable dwellings, sufficient to held all the goods and to accommodate all t ie people that may be expected within the next five years. As soon as this point was reached it was dlsoovrrcd that such allot ments aa were not occupied with buildings would sot be wanted. As soon aa it was fouad that tbey would not be wanted, it was found that they could tot be Bold. Down went the paper townships ! Down went tbe paper millionaire ! Down went rents ! Down went tae value of laud ud buildings ! * * * The cry of tbe " unem pkyed " then arose, and has, wifa more or loss dis uctncss, continued to make itself heard. Many nie nnsutted to the diggiogs, and the land is not ac cessible to tha mere laborer; for tbe government lands) stem remains unaltered, and tne land, in private hands has not yet depreciated to su h an ex tent ae to be sold below tbe government price. Tats ie a clear proof that, though bad, things might have keen worse with our mot eyed men. WeVhave not Men the worst yet, however, as regards tie depre ciation in landed property, while an improvement In bouse property will soon begin to exhibit itself; ?specially if immigration mole talcs the same rate this year that it did during the last. * * * There to, perhaps, no one item ia t!ie commercla1 Hat which bks been subjected t j a greater dep-ecla tton in money value in this port, within tne last year, than that of shipping property. To a great extent, the same causes have acted herein aa nave ?erred to lessen the worth of general importations. We have had a large number of vessel*, of very lew class, offered "for sale," which have been seat to this port from England, in the belief tnat tiey would " sell well," little, If any, attention being paid to the most important points, viz : whether they were suited to tte requirements and circum ?lances of tbe port The result has baen that when anoh vessels were thrown on tbe market, tbey "realised a g> cat loss," took away from the value ?f more suitable and better craft ? thi demand betog by them supplied? the low figure htvtag in dnced buyers to pui chase the inferior article. Twelve or eighteen months since, anything that eould carry Its register tonnage to tbe Melbourne wharf sola quickly at a large profit? often at from 100 to 300 per cent on its English valoe. In last, anything waa thought good e tough for t .is market, ?na so it was when vessels were scarce, lighterage high, and steamboats few: bat not so now. One active cawe lenaiog to this redaction in value la tbe great fsl.log iff in tbe demand for lighterage from the bay to the wharf, and t o com paratively low rates of late, and now, obtained tor tbe carriage cf goods on the river. ? * ? There to one other cause which his, mire than any other, ten ied for mioy months u redaoe t ie value of snh ping property belo* its rale v-?lu and ttntis&r ing tbe msrket by sales at auction, than which tbe re could be hardly anything mire Inju rious to the Interests of the shipowner, the ultima ? efftct being bad in many wayi; but it h-tsnow nearly worked its own cu e. It is not wonderful that under rack aojaiverae pro aut, shipping property in thu ^ort should hive declined' in value as it has done. Tni reaction mty Mi be in proportion to the fill, but it has 11 * set la, and promises to cor.tioue. During the season for shaping wool to Earope a considerable and active ccn uijd spuing up for A 1 first lasi ft roj ?tor vessels, ever 200 tons register, to load here or ?l out ports; but ten lew ?tn offered, and the demand was not neany supplied. This denuad i-i Bkely to cccnr again. Within the last two month* there hiw been a ?MBifcst improvement in the demand for vessels of tfco better deecilpti^up. 6 rfral vessels of from 100 t? 260 tens register have changed owners at an ad ranee in price of ir^m 10 to 25 per cent on toe amount they woo d have realized if disposed of tr? m three months since. This applies chiefly to vos Mil of the better aoit, or such as have some psra Uar good quality to recommend them. Stetmahtp property has Hoffared its share of decline to value, though not to the same extent a* that above referred t. . There can be bat little doabt that In another year we sha'l have employ mitt tor an additional number of steam v<srU, saited to the coast and inter colonial trade. Tocir boilers and furnacra ahould be calculated, while burning colonial coal, to produce the same ate im jwesture as when using English steam coal: and to obtain this, a greater consu mp'.ion of fnal is neces sary. All steam vessels coming here for sale shoold beltted with new boilers. This, In fact, is now the prevailing sympton In all departments ot buaitesa which have been suffdrmg depression. The crisis has passsd over. Imports are decreasing, and merchants begin to entertain hopes of working off their heavy stocks. In soft goods the supply is too large to be affected from this source, hot in other branches stocks are faUlag jfrort. apd a neat rise In prices is expected befcre As winter. ConfUence is, therefore, revlvlag, and credit is more extensively affordod. The also, have relaxed the iUhtne*i of their grasp, and are aoerlsblng many whom thsy were on the print of strangling. They hare been my oh blamsd fo- en couraging all kinds of speculations, in the first in ?tones, ani patting on the sorew moit unmercifully afterwards. Bat the banks themeelve* have be- a ?object to the operation of those genual ciuses to which the crisis was attributable. Honey has besn scarce, not becaose the banks were niggard, bat ce oanse the meney has really gone out of the ooun'ry. Ihs millions sterling which have been "locked ?n" in land have not been stored ?n the vaults of the banks, or "locked up" la tie treasury, bat actually exports i to England forcarryiag on Emigration. Had those immigrants found tb?ir way to thsioil, they would have repail ths outUy ?pon them by saving a fur.her expnrtati m of two ?ipkma sterling per annum tnr the st. IT of life. Bat this they have not dote.

Wo cannot report any improvement in tha eoeiai condition of the colony dor lag the gl? weake that have elapetd ainoe our provioua summary. Iftn?* hu been ity c' anno, It baa been wry Blight, ana not lor the better? tbe tendency being sull ward. Tbe prospect* of lmxigTanta bare not Un proved. Those wbo bar# reotntly landed bate found It impossible to procure rexuMrativee ji ployment in Melbourne: and aa for ^mssenelog Dualiess, tbat in completely ont of the question, fiboi keeping to at a dtoacunt, and. In point or fict, )g ftipiflit waled up fti ft i"uroc of pfonUul? employmett, for either capital or industry; for, when there is an immenae su-plua of mere tra ders to proportion to tbe general community, where fekitima e trade has been reduced to tbe lowest ebb bv a continuous glut of itnporto, and wbete few even of those who were in businees duitog the full flush of tbe first gold days, are able to keep their ground, it is clear that there to very tittle cnance of Buccees for a new beginser. Witb respect to labor in general, ire shall kardty be exaggerating the real sta'e ol the esse, if we were to state broadly that there is at present no possibility of employment in tbe ciiy for any new comer, whether anban or manual laborer, and that tbe great majority of those classes here are not em ployed. Almost all building in tbe city to aacpead ed, and tbe evlJences of activity in other trades are itrikingly few. In the suhu'be and outlying dis tricts there are mucn greater signs of astlvUy ta these inei; but wnattbe interdi g emigrant 8<-ould particularly note Is tbat the^e Is not a demand tor bis l?bcr, of whatever description it may be. we are sp*akirg of Meibooroe at the present moment; but as we are cn tbe verge of winter, and ai m nlovment tere is always lets plentiful in winter than b anmmer, it should be alao n .ted tbat no improve Dent in the labor market to to be expected tor at least six months to come. Wiih res- cot to remoter districts we are no^, or curse, able to speak from personal expemncr, but we gather from tbe local j u uaU and other quar ters, toat, w th the exception of agricultural labor ers, there ia 1 owheie any conslderab e demand for * FoMbe newly arrived immigrant there remains, therefore, to reeouice bat ai*gir>g, aa ocoup ttion of which it is not now neoesairy to give a detailed I da icnption. We believe it may be safely a?erted that any energetic man, capable of the labjr, and willing to submit to all the conditions of tho Digger a life, may make certain of gaining a living at least at the Ko d fields, wiih the chance of something very hand tome "turning up" for blm some day. But at tbe same time it thould be staled that, at many of the fie les, and especially at Ballarat, the system of de*.p I linking to now extensively carried cut. Baafta are suik to a depth of two hundred feet, and of course this process involves combined labor, great energy, and considerable capital, in order to make ti pay. Tr e individual wbo is not able to enter on the work cf gold seeking on so large a scale, to compelled to keep to tbe old .methods of shallow sinking and am lace wakings. The diggings baing the gieat resource of tbe unemployed, there has lately baen a very large migration to them: and during tue coming winter tbe numbers employed at them will bo mucb larger than it has ever been before. As the result cf continued depression in trade, in solvencies and defalcations are still frequent, and, what to even more disastrous, general distrust pre vails. Indeed, It to very striaing to remark what sodden and overwhelming rever?ee have come upon many persons who were once deemed the moat for tunate in tbe community. * * * Thoae who bought property when it had risen to a fictitious value have invariably bees heavy losers; and those who then took leases at What tney considered ex tremely advantageous terms, have also suffsrei bfivitji For cxaiDpl?:? ft mercaotilo firm took a learetf a p eoe of ground in tbe city at a ground rent of ?750 a year, and built a store oa it at a oost of ?3 ,000. They became insolvent, and the store it self brings now only a rent of ?300 a jear. Again: ? another mercantile man built a large spkniit warehouse, and stocked it largely in tbe very dear est time*, ana became baikruot for ?120,000 just when bis plans were completed. Yet tiat gentle man bad a certain capital of very large amount be fore he commenced building. Agaiu:? A builder e ecurtd numerous good vacant spatB in business si tuations at what be deemed lor ground rents, and borrowed money largely to build stores on them, which, when completed, let readily at enor mous rents; but in a few months tho rents fell so mucb, that in most cases ev?:n the ground rente could not be obtained? and thus what teemed a meet iuciutive investment tnrned out a ruinous one. Many merchants, also, who made up their affaire twelve months ago, aud retired to K gland to live upon their incomes, drawn from tbelr property here, have been summoned back to find tnslr afUtrs In anything but a flourishing cor dition; in noma cartes, incieed, to all but aotual insolvency. Otners, who invested large sums of money in laud, intending to sell it again at large proflte, have been combed to hold, until all possibility of gaining any tiling near the price they paid had gone forever; and, moan time, land so held to ol things the most ItumeJiately worthless. Othrr persons who invested tieir savings in land, ana were ooliged to leave balanoe of, Bay one four h of the purchase money unpaid, have be*n after wards compell-. d to part witu tbe entire property, in order to clear off that remaiider of debt. Numerous other instances of a similar kind might bj cited; but theie are tufficient for our purpose, which is to exhibit the ui certainty and tbe fluctuations of oo lontol life, especially U a go?d coljny, and to Bhow tbat even tbe mcst energetic and sagacious men are net able to save themaelves from toe t fleets of them. Home of tbe sj eculations which seemed to be the most fortunate taat oouid be entered on two years sgo, and which for a while were actually lucrative In a high degree, have aft*r?a-ds ruined these who undertook ihem. So taaf.ica certain seise, it is true that enterprise and foresight have proved , to some men, disastrous qualities. In tbe coet cf living there is to change of Impor tance' to bo noted, excrpt that rents are sti.l declin ing. Butirets p/emisebare prccurable at one-t jl-d or one-ton rth of what they fetched in the dearest times, and private dwtllirga have fal ea ab>ut one-half? so tbat a man cau now procure such a shop or store *or ?8 a week, oh In a larg* Edgllih town w<.u!d be thought drar at ?'i a week; and a cottage that would bring about ?10 a year at home, may be had to ?2 10?. a we lt la tue tubuibfiof Me.bcu cc.

As a remarkable instance of this, and of tbe tnc ee kb wbicb sometimes, tooogb very rarely, attends bn artitt's dibut, we nay state that, since 1846, Mr. Pews a baa sent from nis workshop no leas than five "Creek Slaves," three " Fisher Boys," one "Eve," one "Calboun," one "Washington," all full biztd statues; forty busts of "Proaerpiu0,'' several of "Diana," "Psyche," "Washington," " F-sher Bey" and " Slave," and a Urge number of portrait boat*? ttill having on haud, la variola stages of progrers, a gieat many works of a siinikr kind.

S'swArt, it appeared tlat, about tte jear 1851 or 1852, Judson was in deb ed t> Slater io $7,000; that at thai time, Sla w's salary was $1,200 per annum; that Judson being about to make an extensive addition to his boVl, and to set no tbe large ref-wto y which was subsequently carried on there, then proposed to Slater to enter into a co-partnership with him at Jndson's hotel, and leave the amount WDioh he (Slpter) had loaned Jnd'on as ca Eltal In tbe cowjarn, or that Slater should, if e preferred, conViue in the service of Jadson, at a salary of $2,600 ter annum. The witness stated that this increased salary was allowed for Slater's services and for tbe use of his money: that Slater's t o ties were much increased by tbe adlition of t is refecioiy, aid that he was a valuable man for In dustry and integrity, and that he preferred payirg that sa'ary to paying his debt to Slater anl allowing bim to leave his employ sent. The oouniel tot A. T. Stewart A Co., In this evidence, claimed that the mortgage to Slater was usurious, for the re won that an incaeased salary was allowed for the use of his money, and Insisted that by that arrangement S a tei's whole cl?<m was forfeited. The counsel for the plaintiff cbje 'ted to tbe dafenoe usu ry being set up on the trial, for the reason that do such defence had been set up by A. T. Stewart A > Co., in their answer. The Court stated tiat under a recent decision < f the Court of A- peals, that objec tion ocnld not aval), inasmuch as it would be eora petent even for tiie General Term to allow an amendment cf the answer on appeal after the trial. The counsel for tbe plain tiff then ii slated that if the question of u^ury was tobersi ed (al hough he was satisfied that tbe detenie would not avail Messrs. A. T. Stewart A C >.) that defence should be put upon tbe record aud snbsenbed aid sworn to by same of tie members of the firm r f A. T. Stewart & Co., and tbst tbe canse should not be proceeded with until that formality was compiled with. Toe counsel for A. T. Stewart A Co. decline 1 making a motion for leave to amend tLeir answer at this stage of the esse, and the court intimated that it was unneces sary to do to then, as it might hi done at general term. The c ur se 1 for the plaintiff suggested that tbe general term would hardly allow the privilege of an amendmeot wben the case cams before them, ? f that privilege had been tendered a*, spe^al term and declined, the cr.urt then decided taat tf the defence was to be insisted upon the aamdmaot must be made cn tie spot, ana must be verified by some of the membei s or tbe firm of A. T. Stewart A Co. Tbe ocuDsel for ?be plaintiff then insisted that be court abcnld impose terms as a oniltioi at al owing tbe amerdmmt, and stated tiat be should be lailtfied with the imposition ot tbe smal'est amount of costs welsh could bi imposed exceeding twelve ard a half cen's, so as to i correspond with tte small character of tae defence. Tte C'jnrt tfcen ordeud taat the amendment should be made on payment of $1 coats, tbe amendment to be drawn ard sworn to before the cause woJd be pro eedtd with. Tbe oounsel for A. T. Stewart A Co. t' en prcctedcd to draw the amendment set tag np the defence of u-ury. Mr. Bi roughs, of tbefiimofA.T. StcrartA Co., shortly made his appearance in court, and under t?e direct on ef his counsel mbscribed ana swore to the neoessa-y afli darits. The ecsnsel for A. T. Stewart A Cj. was thereupon about to proceed to exvnlae the witneHs in ?nppr>rt of the dtfenoe of neurr, when hie waa interrupted by tbe o. urrel for tbe plaintiff, who ia sitied that the coats ($1) which had baen imposed as a cordltion for aunitttlng the defence of osiry. should ba pa'd biiore it waa pro-eeied with Some den urrcr was made to tbis demand, ?sd It was snggetted that Mwra A.

He thereupon handed $1 to the plaiatilTs countel, who immediately handed It over to the plam'iff, and stair d that the plaintiff would oens*nt that tbe $1 should be credited on tbe amount of his mortgage. ? he trial then prooeeded.
