Sir Saul Samuel, Agent-General for New South Wales, in answer to instructions to urge the Imperial Government to grant the request for responsible government, has cabled to Sir H. Parkea that Lord Knutsford hopes to get the second reading of the Bill passed, but fears it will be impossible to carry it through its final stages before tho prorogation.
A strange bequest has been made by a retired tax collector, who died the other day at Grenoble, to the town of St. Marcellin. He has left Ll2O on condition that it should be invested at compound interest for a period of 600 yeart when the testator calculated the accumulation would amount to 49,700 milliard francs.
