The schooner ' Twins" arrived in Port f vom Otago on Ihursday evening, having left P„ rt Chalmers, we understand, 011 Monday last We have been disappointed in not receiving affiles of the Witness, which is no unusual occurrence, as that journal turns up by fits and starts and at such distant intervals, as to render its reception a matter of the completest inutility Whether the blame rests with the Otao- 0 Post Office, or with the journal itself, we are quite unable to say. The only item of news we have been enabled to glean is that the Government Brig had arrived from Wellington, but with what purpose we are unable to learn.
We are glad.to hear that agriculture is on the increase on the Plains. The Drill has been in great requisition ; and should the winter prove mild throughout, as it has commenced, abundant crops may be anticipated. Our agricultural readers will do well to bear in mind that owing to such numbers being collected at the gold fields, concentrated in one spot slaving for gold, cultivation is neglected in Australia, and therefore all articles of food are likely to command a very remunerating price. These multitudes must be fed and will pay highly for the food they consume ; in addition'to those on the spot we may also calculate on the arrival of thousands from England and the Continent of Europe, as each successive- vessel from Port Philip and Sydney confirms the tidings by the indispntable proof of large successive golden exportations. There can be no doubt, therefore. that a very great demand will arise for provisions of all kinds, and the New Zealand settlers have the certainty before them of obtaining their share of the gold by supplying this demand, without enduring the privation and toil attendant on an actual search for gold.
The foot bridge over the Avon, at the Bricks, Christchurch, is now open, and is found to be of great convenience. It would be very desirable to have the street levelled from it to the Bridge in the Market place, as then the intended street, on Waterloo Terrace, would run from the Bricks as far as the Royal Hotel.
The Lock-up at Christchurch is finished; it stands at the/westernmost extremity of the Market Place, South of the Avon, and is a substantial and neat building. It has been built by the contractor, Mr. Isaac Luck.
