Feom returns furnished to a Southern contemporary, it appears that the Chinese population of Otago amounts to 2606. The journal from which we quote estimates 700 oz. of gold per week as the produce of the Celestial population—the greater portion of which they hoard, wi h the view of removal to their country. On the 30th of December, sixty-seven Chinese took their departure from Dunedin for Melbourne, en route for China, having made a very handsome sum amongst them at the diggings.
