WOO L. [ROM OUR CORRESPONDENT INDEX.] )O i staple Export,. our sheet anchor, as it has 5bee??`iwell termed, goes on increasing steadily frominyear to year. During the present year (1836) the quantity exported will probably be much under. the amount we might reasonably anticipate; and the ,fa)ling .off may principally be attributed to disease and unfavourable seasons. At least, we must not expect that the increase of 1.83'6over that. of 1835, will go beyond, or eten equal,..the increase of 1835 over the preceding year.., We. may. be mistaken, .however, in our calculation, and we slilil be glad, for the sake of the :" land we 'live in,"'to find ourselves in the wvrong.

MR. JOHN MARSHALL'S EMIGRANTS. A man named Thomas Ashton, who came out as Superintendent in the Strathfieldsay to Hobart Town with Emigrant Females, was taken out of the Fortune on Friday last, by a sheriff's officer, at the suit of Mr.Pearson, of Pitt Street. It appears that he is indebted to Mr. P. about 2701. and has only recently been let out of   Carters' Barracks. He is also considerably in debted to several other persons. During the early part of last week Mr. Pearson got   information of his intention to leave the colony under an assumed name and found, on enquiry that he had taken his passage to England in the Fortune under the name of Jones. Mr. P. obtained a writ and accompanied by a sheriff's officer, went on board very early on Friday morning; the ship got under weigh and when off South Head, a boat was observed making for the vessel. The "Bolter", having made his appearance on deck in   state of complete confusion, was recognised ...
