SOUTH BRISBANE MECHANICS INSTITUTE. -A meeting was held at the temporary   reading room last evening, Mr A. J Hock-     ings in the chair, for the purpose of electing   officers, adopting rules, &c. The following gentlemen were duly ballotted for and ap- pointed, namely - President - Mr. A. J. Hockings, vice-President-Mr. Samuel Stevens, Treasurer-Mr. Thomas Kinsela, Hon. Secretary-Mr. S. L. Peterson, Com- mittee-Messrs H Hoghton, Wonderley, Eaborn, T. B. Stephens, Coote, H. Hock- ings, Allen, and Frazer.

; prehensive forebodings as to the consequences < ! of a departure from that system. . THE GOLD EXPEDITION.-Captain Me-     chosk and party,-Mr. Glassock, second in i   command, who started on their gold ex-   ploring expedition on Saturday last, were     compelled to return to Brisbane yesterday     after having travelled about 12 miles. The   reason of the interruption was the necessity     of procuring a better driver, and that object     having been accomplished, we believe the     Captain resumed his expedition yesterday   evening.  


The investigation into this matter was con-     tinued yesterday, and will probably be con-     cluded to-day, in which case we shall be en-    

abled to report the matter fully in our next
