(From the European Nru/s). . Australian oranges ! By the steamship Lusitania a novel importation—a consignment of oranges and lemons from an estate near Adelaide, South Australia and Watkins, of Convent Garden. In aniWiing the dispatch of tie fruit, the grSler, a customer to whom the firm have supplied otoeds, stated that he should not have thought of sending oranges such a long distance but for the fact that they were now in season and cheap in Adelaide. The consignment consisted of one case of lemons, one case of large Naples oranges, and eight cases of St. Michael’s oranges.

They were packed in very dry, fine, brown sawdust, and those in one case, by-way of experiment, were also wrapped in paper. A few of the oranges with paper wrappings showed signs of a minute brown mould in bruised places, those packed free in the sawdust were in perfect condition. As fine oranges are at present being sold retail m Convent Garden Market at fid. and 4d. each, it is believed that the venture will yield a fair return to the grower, and the success of the experiment may lead to the development of a regular trade, which will increase the variety of our autumn fruits.
