New Zealand. &nbsp; &nbsp; -o- BAY OF-ISLANDS. (From the New Zealander, Jan. 9.) &nbsp; Reports have been in circulation, calculated to arouse the fears of the public, respecting the inten tions of the natives in the northern districts.

The Banks, the public offices, and ,nearly all the shqps in .the ,city were closed. .. The early.part of the day was .extremiely un promising, and several slight slower?s fell, but towards ten o'clock, the weather assumed a more favourable appearance, .and though it continued cloudy throughout the whole of the day, a more favourable day could not have been desired ; as there was no scorching heat, and a moderate southerly breeze prevailed throughout, which was peculiarly favourable to the aquatic sports. .

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 January 1847
IRELAND. (From the Globe, Sept. 29.) Lord Besborough's answer to a recent deputation from the Irish Royal Agricultural Improvement So ciety suggests matter for serious consideration at the present crisis : " That he fully concurred in the general principle laid down in it-namely, the propriety of employing the labouring classes upon works connected with husbandry, if possible, and of a profitable and re- t productive nature; but he feared that the Present ments Act, chap. 107 of Victoria, did not enable them to do so, as the law officers of the Crown had given it as their opinion that its operations were confined to public works alone, such as are contemplated in the Grand Jury and Presentment Acts, by which it was construed. He had, however, communicated his views on the subject, as well as those of others, received from all quarters in a similar strain, to her Majesty's government; and without being able to promise anything specific, he hoped to have it in his power shortly to giv...
SEPTEMBER WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 January 1847
SEPTEMBER WOOL SALES. We have been favoured with a duplicate of a klter from Buckles & Co., the original of which was transmitted by the IFsidermere. addressed to a gentleman in town - DE alB Sm,-We have much pleasurein forward ing to you the aceoampanying.price current, of our third series of wool sales of the present season, which have certainly gone off more satisfactorily than we could -have anticipated but a few weeks since." As compared with the sales of July we consider that prices have ruled fully Id. per lb. above the highest rates then obtained, and higher by 2d. per lb. than the average of those sales. Of the market prospec tively we entertain a still more favourable opinion ; and although we shall not probably see any material improvement during the present year, unless any unforseen political event should interfere, we think that prices will certainly be higher in the spring. and that we shall have a good market throughout the ensuing season. Our potatoe crop ha...
CAPTAIN WILKES'S EXPLORING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 January 1847
CAPTAIN WILKES'S EXPLORING EXPEDI TION. (From the Singapore Free Press, Oct. 22.) Until lately we have not had an opportunity of seeing the Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition-during the years 1838-39-40-41-42, by Captain Wilkes, commander of the expedition, nor have we yet been able to peruse more than a small part of it. -We naturally turned with a good deal of curiosity to Captain Wilkes' account of his visit to Singapore to which he devotes a chapter, and we must confess ourselves disappointed by the manner in which thie subject is handled. .The information which the author received appears to have been very meagre, and what he did obtain has been ill-arranged and only half .understood, while even in regard to what came under his own observations many strange blunders and misconceptions occur. Captain Wilkes states that he received much interesting information relative to the place, its commerce, &c., from 3\r. Balestler, the Consul for the United States,...

VICE ADMIRALTY COURT. THURSDAY, JAN. 28. Before the Worshipful S. F. Milford, Esq., Deputy Judge and Commissary. TOM BOWLINE AND OTHERS IN RE THE SHIP THE "MORNING STAR." [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 January 1847
VICE ADMIRALTY COURT. THURSDAY, JAN. 28. Before the Worshipful S. F. Milford, Esq., Deputy Judge and Commissary. TOM BOWLINE AYD OTHERS IN RE THE StIP TIHE t MORNIHO STAR." In this case his Worship delivered the following judgment: In the present stage of this action it must be taken for granted (as already decided) that the Court has jurisdiction, and I am now only to consider in the first instance whether the promoters have proved their libel ot -not. If not, their case fails; if they have, I am then to proceed further, and consider whether the case so proved is in law met by the matters proved in support of the plea. The liuel as drawn states the common case of a hiring and service, as by British seamen on board a British ship, of a demand for wages, and a refusal to pay. The personal answer of the master admits the hiring and service of the promoters, but states that the wages engaged fur were less than those! claimed. The promoters having declined to read that part of the maste...

ENGLISH 1NEWAS. BY the arrival of the Sydney, from London, and the recent arrivals from Hobart Town, we are in possession of English news to the 14th of October, a copious summary of which will be found below, and several of the most interesting extracts in our other columns. (From the Hobart Tbso Advertiser.) Again has the failure of the potatoe crop de desolated Ireland, and the pressure of famine has extended into the Highlands of Scotland, and been even felt in England. The failure is even more universal than last year. The Government has done all that appears possible to provide against it. Deposits of meal have been formed, heavy assess ments on the baronies for the purpose of affording work have been rendered bearable by the Govern ment advancing the money. -Still the misery .is too 'universal not to be productive of disturbances, and we regret to.find accounts of provision riots all over the mouth and west. -In one place, Dungarvan, the people came into collision with the mi...
