ABOLITION OF THE "CLEARING S Y S TEM. To tho Editor of the Metcury. Sir,-A very salutary alteration has been effec- ted by the new Port Act, in reference to clearing outward-bound vessels in the ports of this colony, and which rame into operation on the 1st instant 'The police can now only interfere to prevent the departure of prisoners of the crown, when such are known to be on hoard, and in cases of free persons charged with felony, or against whom a warrant or capias has been issued. The customs authorities are not now obliged to have a list of passengers forwarded, as heretofore, twenty-four hours before clearing outward, nor is any list required to be sent to the Police Magistrate ; special clearances are also dispensed with. Thus, it will be seen that a very inconvenient and unnecessary arrangement hak b«en nhil »hod, nnd that every Inhabitant of Tam spi» win ' .

MAURITIUS [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 May 1857
MAURITIUS We have some interesting intelligence from the Mauritius, via Adelaide: The Anglo-French Company's mail steamer Governor Higginson, with the overland mails of the 10th and 26th January, reached Port Louis on the l*t March. The passage from Aden was inada in 11 days. Lindsay's line of steam postal communica- tion, via the Cape to Mauritius, Ceylon, Madrai,and C ilcutta, is denounced as a failure It, U affirmed by the Commercial Gratte that all the vessels have exceeded their contract time. Under such eireum-taiices, tlio colony very reasonably objects to paying any Bubsidy to the Company. Rclerrin j to these colonies, the Commercial Gazette observes that " at no time has Aus- tralia been able to entertain so prompt a means of communie ition with England as is no* afforded by way of Mauritius." It is aäsertea, that with one quarter of the sum now paid for the monthly service with E igland via Aden and Ceylon, the Au-tralian colonies would be itt a position to secure a second...
