It gives us much pleasure to learn, by mail advices, that the information pre viously conveyed by telegraph with regard to the Northern Railway Exten sion may be relied upon. Our Brisbane correspondent, in his letter, published elsewhere, states that die actual distance of the Comet terminal station is 741 miles from Rockhampton, or tit miles fromWestwood. Thatstation,also, trillbe on the western side of the river, and thus we shall have the whole of the western country made accessible at almost all seasons. It is satisfactory, former, to leant that there is a. growing feeling in the Assembly in favour of pushing on oar railway works, and that, despite the fears from time to time expressed, the Government have never interfered with Mr. Ballaku's progress in the slightest degree. That gentleman, we learn from both parlia mentary and official sources, has never at any time reached the bottom of the money bag, or if he have it has been at once replen...
