Communication with Sydney WOB much interrupted. Wo give tho items that have not yet appeared :-] NEW ZEALAND. Sydney, Friday. Nothing material is doing here, owing to the de- parture of the mail. In papers from Taranaki I find it stated that General Pratt withdrew the troops, inconsequence of tho receipt on tho spot, per Victoria, ot des- patches from the General Assembly at Auckland, and that ho would leave for Auckland on the 14th j but I do not believe this, because a resolution was carried in the Assembly, by 11 to 3, for the prosecution of tho war with vigour.

THE TOWN HALL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 September 1860
THE TOWN HALL BILL. MR. DuNK.ín the absence of Mr. CHAPMAN who was prevented by indisposition from attending the House, moved last evening the second read ingofthe Town Hall Bill. The honorable member stated, in reference to the petition which had been presented against this Bill, and to which but thirty or forty uamcs had been appended, that the petitioners were evidently laboring under a misapprehension, as the money proposed to be borrowed for the erection ot the Town Hall and other buildings in con- nexion therewith would not, as they supposed, increase taxation. It was pointed out, how» ever, by Mr. ROOKE that us the Bill contained a clause empowering the Corpora- tion to borrow money it could only be intro- duced by the government. The COLONIAL TREASURER stated that there were one or two other alterations which would have to be made. He promised to consult with his colleagues on the matter and, should there be no objection, tuke charge of this Bill. Wo sincerely hope there wil...
THE MARINE CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 September 1860
THE MARINE CABLE. IN moving the adoptiun of a vote of six thou- sand pounds, or such other reasonable sum us might be necessary, as Tasmania's share of the expense of restoring telegraphic communication with Victoria, the COLONIAL TREASURER stated that the government of the latter Colony seemed indisposed to continue the line. We cannot but think that this indisposition is more assumed than real. To refuse to assi.-t in restoring a Cable which has been notoriously destroyed through the ignorance of those appointed by themselves to survey the bed of the Straits and determine tile course of the Cable, would scarcely be consistent with equity or jitsiiee. Mr. INNES intends proceeding to Melbourne to have a personal interview with the Vic- torian Cabinet on the subject, when wo have no doubt arrangements will be made for having communication restored. A letter nddressed hy a party connected with the telc.Taph to one of our citizens has been handed to us ; and there arc one or two portio...
