Tbe Sophia Jane, steamer. . brought some grain to Sydney, and has been the means of increasing the value of land in that neighbourhood, especially waterside premises. Wheat ia scarce, dear, and bad, compared-to that from other dis-. tricts. The young crops look strong and healthy. Maize is plentiful, at Is. 6d. per bushel. The settlers are growing a very largo quantity of tobacco this season. Cattle are still at the late low. prices. Sheep are a shade higher, and in demand. Some of the finest wheat that has been seen' in Sydney for some time, was brought to market on Thursday, and purchased by Mr. Barker ; it was grown at Bathurst by Mr. G. Williams, and weighed sixty-three pounds to the ' bushel. Some fine wheat, but of a more flinty nature, was also brought to town from the South Creek. The crops round Campbell Town also wear a favourable appearance.

The owners of tbe Eamont, (Lamb, Buchanan, & Co.), have adopted a laudable method of advertising the latest day when passengers by that ship are to be ready to embark. We wish Government would enforce the old atanding rule of advertising departures of every description, for a fortnight or three weeks previous to sailing. No honest man would object to the measure, and any other should be compelled to do so under risk of losing his passage. Tbe first deviation from the practice was permitted, we believe, in the case of Dr. Douglass, and has been accompanied with vety bad consequences since that unfortunate period. We recently stated that Mr. Dixon had purchased part of the wheat Imported perJBrttnnm'a, this error occurred through being furnished with erroneous information by an interested party. The Kains. On Thursday morning, the Kains came into Port, after an absence of six weeks and twq days, occupied in vainly attempting to make Launceston. The fains sailed from this Port on the Oth June, having on board several passengers, and twenty-six horses; with tolerable fair winds, she made the entrance of Bass' Straits off Cape Barren, but a sudden shift of wind to the W.

The' Bank of Australia now adopts a plan of writing on the back of all checks they pay, the number of large notes, by which means a party would be enabled to trace them when offered to the Bank for payment, if be had been robbed. This system has been adopted since the robbery of the Bank, and betokens a wish on the part of the Bank to prevent depredation on private property. On Tuesday last, a party on leaving the Supreme Court, after being declared not insolvent, was chased down Elizabeth-street, finding one bailiff press him too close, ho turned round and floored him like a shot, then jumping over, a garden fence, he made his way ' into Castlereagh-street, and finally eluded the intentions of the bailiffs by getting clear off. He has flown to the " Refuge" in the vicinity of Campbell. Town, which has hitherto been Bum proof. Our readers may Serceive on referring to our Insolvent Debtor's eport, that the Assessors are determined not to let fraud go unpunished. During the last week two cares have occurred, in which two parties owing debts amounting to nearly- ten thousand. 5onnds, have been refused the benefit of the nsolvent Act, in consequence of the fraudulent manner in 'which the debts had. been contracted, and - the mysterious manner in which the would be insolvents ' accounted for. the disposal of the property. The number of . cattle slaughtered for the quarter end ing June, amounts, by the Inspectors list, to two thousand six hundred, being seven hundred more than the previous quarter, and making a total for the Inst six months of four thousand five hundred, On Wednesday J. Lamb, Esq. was duly elected as a director of the Bank of Australia, in the room of W. J. Browne, Esquire, who has gone to England. On Wednesday last Susan Gaffney was brought before the Police Office, charged by Mr. - Hordern, of King-street, with having stolen a- piece;- of print from his shop. She was fully committed to take her trial for the offence. This is the ame woman who endeavoured to snatch a .bag of money from Mr. Nash, which he was conveying to the Bank. ' She was then discharged, as be was considered to be deranged, but the late robbery shows considerable method in her madness. Susanna Watson, assigned to Mr. Simon, of Parraraatta, was also charged with the same offence, to commit which, it appeared that ' she had left Parramatta on purpose, as she had paid a visit to ten or twelve shops in Sydney, from each of which she had secretly abstracted something. The Bench expressed their determination of putting down shoplifting, and sentenced the prisoner -to two years imprisonment in the third class of the factory.
