SHOALHAVEN. [from oue own correspondent.] The Weather and the Cuors. — Tho wet hero has set in iu earnest, and, I fear, will do severe injury to the crops.

(From the Times' Correspondent.) Naples, October 13. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 5 January 1857
(From the Times' Corrcvondent.) Naples, Ootober 13. T can perceive that attempts are being made to divert public attention from tho main question at issue here, first bv reports that a. new Administration is uboitt to be formed, and, secondly, that many prisoners had been liberated. As regard's tho first statement after strict i.nnnirv. T believe that Prince Sutriunu (Filanyieri) has , not been sent for, and that ceriHinly would refuse office were it offered to him, at all events 'in the present state of things No sagacious or independent-minded man will ierve the King us the adorato cd essoluto Padrone.^ As regards the second statement, that many political prisoners have been liberated, it i« undoubtedly true, especially as regards those who were sw,-pt off and de tained l-v a simple order of the police. Upon this tact, too, a portion of tho French and. Germun press have built up a defence of the King of Naples, forgetful, as it ap pears to me, that the more they multiply such proo...
