“ Five Sundays.” —lßßo is leap year, Then the ladies have it all their own way. whey have an extra chance this time as there will be five Sundays in next February. This fact occurh but three times in a century. Tims, after 1880, we shall have to wait until 1020 before the shortest month in the year can again boast of five Sundays. Colonial Loans.— -The London Times of September 29th, in the money article, says:—“ There seems to be among many of the principal people interested in Colonial securities a fear that the Australian Colonies are seeking to raise too mueh money. At present the different Legislatures have sanctioned in all the raising of L 20,000,000, in addition to the present indebtedness, which in some cases is quite large enough. The market for Australian bonds has hitherto been a good one, and it would bo a great pity if distrust were created by an indiscriminate launching of new loans. The works for which most of the authorised borrowing is required would undoubtedly help forward materially the different colonies, but the readiness with which previous appeals have been answered here should not lead our antipodean brethren into the mistake of supposing that all future applications will be as readily responded to if judgment is not shown in selecting the opportunity.”
