The Emperor of Germany offered a premium of $3,500, at the great Exposition at Sydney, for that exposition of an industry that should be likely to prove most valuable to Australia. After all we have heard of Australian wool, Australian meat, Australian wheat, and Australian minerals, it is a surprise to find the premium awarded to the wine makers! After all, it will no doubt please the Emperor to know that the immigrant from the Rhine carried away his premium in that distant land. There is this fitness in the result of the award of the jury, although the Australians themselves seem by no means satisfied with the award, from other considerations. They contend that juries are "oncertain," as some of our fellow-citizens have it.
