LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE MAIL FOB EKGLATJB.-Owin^ to the South Australian Government having with drawn the subsidy hitherto allotted for the direct route homewards, via King George's Sound, mercantile men, and others, desirous of j promptly transmitting the latest advices, are now placed at a great disadvantage.

This is a very serious disadvantage, because many circum stances may. arise during these three weeks which might most matrially affect the nature of the commercial advices seut home. Mer cantile men naturally wish to know the latest states of the general markets for produce and merchaudise before they venture on trans mitting orders, based on calculations liable to be seriously-affected before the mail sails.
