ARRIVAL OF SALMON -l OVA AT TASMANIA. H.M.C.S.S. Victoria, with the salmon* ova on board, arrived on ?Wednesday, the 20th, and an-, chored off Battery Point.

THb continually thawing keeps the moss moist and cool,*' arid thus the delicate importation has eafely arrived at its destination. Tho quantity- office brought on in tho Victoria is fifteen tons, and the whole, ; with the ova, was immediately transhipped into a barge for New Norfolk. Another .marked event in the history of the great experiment of the acclimatisation of the salmon in Tasmania took place yesterday, at the breeding pond, in the district of New Norfolk, when the ova wore successfully de Eosited for the first time in the waters which it is to o hoped will yet become their permanent home.

DISCOVERY OF A NEW GOLD-FIELD AT MARLBOROUGH, NEW ZEALAND. Tho' special correspondent of the Nelson Exami ner writes as follows : — Monday morning, 18th April. I returned here yesterday, after having visited the Wakamarina gold-field and made myself ? thoroughly acquainted with its present prospects, Its capacity and the manner in which it wa3 first discovered. The Wakamarina rises not very far from what is called ' The Devil's ? Arm-chairi' in the same range as do other 'branches of the Pelor.us, all of which I fully believe will be found auriferous. The Wakamarina valley is well-, wooded, but not heavily, nor do you find any; tronblesome underbrush. Yon can walk anywhere ' in the hush, and the river has terraces, to which no 'flood can reach. I fully believe that gold reaches quite back to these terraces.
