'NEWS FROM NEW ZRALAND" (From the Port Phillip Patriot.) April 30th.-There was at the Bay of Islands ah American Consulate sta tioned at Wahpu, at jwhich the Ameri cae'ships always brought up and re fitted. There was an ostensibly American store there under the firm of Smith and Waitford; Stn'th is away, and Waitford (an Englishman) is managing.

He has a schooner named the I Don't Know, which arrived a week or two since from Sdney, and .so strong were the apprehensions of the Government that she would bring down powder and ammunition for the natives, that when it was known that, by a vessel that arrived previously, there were letters for Sinith and Wait ford in the post-office, the Governor and Council issued an order, and the letters were opened. In due course the schooner arrived at the Bay, bUt the captain of [the St. Louis, U.S., then lay...

TAHITI. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 June 1845

TAHITI. The conduct of the French in the Pacific had been warmly discussed in the.Chamber of Deputies, and twoat. tempts had been mode to censure M Guiz ,t and the ministry for retaining the sovereignty of Tahiti. In both cases, however, the ministry were triumphant. Admiral Du Petit Thouars had declined receiving the sword, which his admirers had purchased for him, on tIh ground that he had acted under the orders of th'e governrment, and it was for the government to decide upon his condluct. We regret to observe that there does not appear to be the smallest reason to sup pose that the French Protectbrate Will be withdrawn Irom Tahiti.

COLONIAL CORN: AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845

COLONIAL CORN: AUSTRALIA. (Fron tie Colonial GazetLte, Jan. 11.) The subjoined extracts from the last arrived.Australian journals inti mate that Mr Hutt's hands will be strengthened wheh he renews his motion for the admission of corn from South Africa, India, and Australasia, on the same terms as corn is admitted into Canada. The independent mem bers of Parliament will learn from them that the Australasian colonies have an interest in the concession of the right, and are bent upon claiming it. For the Colonial Secretary and the Vice-President of the Board of Trade-who, in defiance of their duty to watch over the " ships; colonies, and commerce" of Great Britain, were last session the foremost oppo nents of Mr Hutt-may learn from them the necessity of doing justice to the colonies of the Southern group. Van Diemen's Land, Western and South Australia, and the south ern parts of New South WVales, and (chon infelix !) New Zea land, are destined by nature to be corn-growing countries. Th...

SYDNEY. THE GOVERNOR'S DESPATCHES. As usual when a ship arrives from London, there have been various r - ports current during the last few days, as to the "satisfactory des patches" which the Governor has received from Downing-street. How far his Excellency may be satisfied it is of course impossible for us even to guess; but the dates will show that so far as the squatting question is concerned,no determination could have been come to by Lord Sianley. The report of the committee on crown land grievances was not brought until the 20th of August, and was first made public in a sup plement to the Herald, of August 24th ; and it was not until the 9th September that a ship (the Haidee) sailed for England.
