OPENING OF THE MANCHESTER, EXHIBITION This grand ceremonial, which has been looked forward to with such intense eagerness by all classes in Manchester, took place with the utmost eclat. At eleven o'clock, when the doors openod,aline of carriages stretched along the different routs leading to the Exhibition for a distance of at least three miles, and tho entrances were besieged by a dense body of fashionables eager for admission ; and from the fact that none were permitted to enter but the holders of season tickets, this may bo taken as a good .augury for the perfect success of the undertaking. Meanwhile his Royal Highness's progress to the bnilding had been commenced. Having arrived at Chedle Sta- tion shortly after 12 o'clock, and rested for a brief period at Abney Hall, the magnificent country seat of the Mayor of Manchester, the Prince, accompanied by his suite and escorted by a troop of Dragoons,set out for Manchester at one o'clock p.m. At Abney Hall the Prince was met by the E...

RUMOURED LOSS OF THE RETRIEVER. - The Sydney Morning Herald of the 11th instant says: - A rumour was circulated yesterday that the Retriever, brig, was caught in a W.N.W. squall off Cape Howe last Sunday, and went down with all hands. The Retriever, left New Castle on 24th April with 13,000 sheep, for Bluff Harbour   We understand that the whaling schooner Briton's Queen, has been compelled to return in consequence of 3 of her crew having deserted her. When she was going into Spring Bay, four men supplied themselves with provisions and, having lowered a boat, landed, with the view of making their way to Recherche Bay. Such at least   appears probable, as the boat was left on the Beach. On the 17th of this Month four more of the crew deserted her, after having battered down the   companion, and made for Brown's River. This boat has also been recovered.
