GOVERNMENT MATRIMONIAL AGENT. One of the largest matrimonial agents in the world at the present time is Sir Horace Tozer, the Agent- General for Queensland, who is sending large drafts of single women to the colony. The last census of Queensland showed 57,000 more single men than single women, and the efforts of the Colonial Govern- ment in the way of emigratian are now mainly devoted to making up the deficiency. The objection entertained by the working men of Australia to free or assisted emigration does not extend to the class exported by Sir Horace Tozer, so long as he is care- ful to select them young and tolerably good-looking. In this (says the Chronicle) he seems to be successful, as it is stated that about 50 per cent. of the female emigrants marry within two years of their arrival in Queensland.
