SAM HmEs.-Great complaints have been made in England lately respecting the careless manner in which hides are cured and shipped from this Colony. Repeated instances have occurred of hides being landed in a putrid state, and some half destroyed by i ubbingngainst the ¡ron hoops of casks in oil ships. So low indeed has this export fallen in the market, that many shipments have fetched only l^d. per lb. Tiie salting season approaching, we offer to the notice of our graziers, &c. the following extract from a letter received by a respectable firm in Sydney, from their London Correspondent :
; "Hides should he put'into a strong brine as
soon as they are taken oiF, and be allowed to re- ' main there for 12 hours ; then put over a beam, singly, for the filth to drain off. After this they should be tied up tight, with salt sprinkled on the inside. The.salt should bo fine, and not in hard lumps; and we recommend that they should be always packed in casks when shipped."

THEATRE-On Thursday John Bull, or the Englishman's Fire Side, was presented to the pub- lic, in which a Mr. M'Curdy, in John Thornbury, made his debut.
