Considerable changes will, however, take phice in the proprietorship of the shares before cither the .machinery is set to work, or the cash forth coming; The bulk of ihc shares is now accumulated in' the hands of 'five or six persons', some of whom may be bo'th able, and may intend to retain them in their own bands; — imVwc suspect some little difficulty might be felt by others in producing even the requisite advances on each, of twenty, thirty, fifty,.scventy, &c. one hun dred pounds-shares, let those requisite advances be' ever sostrifling. --It-is not in the power of many at any time^in a mercantile community, where capital is fully employed, to command thousands, without breaking up existing establishments, and gradually transmuting their 'property.

A regular communi     cation, it would seem, had been carried on between the runaways on the Islands in the Straits, and the Bushrangers on Van Dieman's Land. Preservation Island being only about twelve miles distant from Swan Island, and this again being within a mile of the main land, it is not to be wondered a that such a man as Munro, of whom a description is given by our informant, Capt. Skelton, of the Governor Sorell,     should have carried on a thriving trade; and, that the Bushrangers, on the other hand, should have kept...
