]STEW CALEDONIA. At the date of last advices from New Caledonia, there were at Port ele France three ships of war, and two war steamers, with a military force consisting of about 1,000 men, soldiers and marines. Other vessels with additional forces were expected. As is well known, there is a considerable force at Tahiti and the Marquesas. It is not clear to an Englishman's comprehension why so formidable an armament is necessary for the peaceful purposes of French colanisation in the Pacific. But there it is, a lew days' sail from Port Jackson Heads.-Empire. Bell's Life in Sydney adds the following : The French schooner of war Le Bailleur quitted this port last Wednesday. The French corvette Le. Thishe still lies at anchor in Port Jackson, broadside to broadside with that rotten old slow-sailing tub, H.M.S. Kernld.

MINTARO.—Notwithstanding the depression of trade in our commercial circles the people of Mintaro are going ahead. On the 1st of September next, pursuant to arrangement made by the settlers in the district, E. B. Gleeson, Esq., J.P., will lay the foundation of Mr. Smiths' Mill. After the ceremony, the event will be celebrated in the good old style by a public dinner at the Mintaro Hotel. The mill is to be furnished with a beam engine, manufactured on Fairbairn's principle, each portion being of the best and most modern description. It is six-columned, of 18 horse-power, and pronounced to be equal to 24 horse-power of colonial make. There will also be three pairs of French burr stones hard to the centre. The whole of the machinery is from the firm of Balfour & Co., Engineers, of Leven, Fifeshire. The estimated cost of the erection is about 4,000/.

THE INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 August 1858

THE INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ADVERTISER. Sir-At the present time, when the public attention is particularly directed to the discoveries made by Mr. Gre- gory in the interior of this continent, it perhaps would not'be out ot place to offer a few remarks relative to the possibility of opening up this part of the globe, in the hope that some means may be suggested by which men of energy may convert the barren desert into the fruit- ful cornfield and vineyard, and render Australia not a mere shell of cultivable coa9t-line, but develop an interior wealth, witho it which she can never rise to the dignity of a great nation. In start'ng this subject, the first point to be gained is to see whether a comparison of the climate and soil of the interior of Australia with those of other parts of the world, especially about the same latitude, affords any reasonable prosoeet that it may be brought to a state of cultivation, and it is thought the following quotations will show tha...

The Adverti[?]er. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 August 1858

'% Imlí-tfepF. ADELAIDE : SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1858. OUR insolvency report to-day exhibits one of the most flagrant instances of systematic neglect that ever passed under the notice of the community. We have given but an abridged report of the ease, aa a literal repetition of the statements made on the several examinations would but exhaust the patience of our readers, and exclude much other information ; but, imperfect as our sketch of tlie proceedings may be, it reveals quite enough to show with how little method or prudence an extensive business may be conducted. We refer, of course, to the case of Mr. Tobitt. of Tanunda. We have no wish to write a sentence against the insolvent, who is an old colonist, and has for many years conducted his business creditably and satisfactorily. But whatever may be alleged to his advantage on this score, it leaves unmet and unmitigated the astounding disclosures revealed in evidence at the several examinations, and developed in the statement of t...
