News from the Interior. PORT PHILLIP.

Alison and Knight's Steam Mill, yesterday, was £15 fine, and £14 seconds. The late fall has been occa- sioned by the arrival of 2,200 bags wheat from Launceston, and considerable quantities from the country during the week,which, if continued, which can scarcely be expected, may lead to a further reduction.

EnflUh Extracts. - LKÇTURÇ BYA RETURNED CONVICT. On the evenings of Monday and Tuesday, ; Mr. C. A. King, a returned convict, delivered [two lectures on transportation, &c, at Settle, : both .of which were .attentively, listened ^o by ; a very numerous audience. His first lecture was given in the dress and chains wom by convicts - in Yan Diemen's ? Land, and the second in the dress and mask worn by con- victs in the new model prison. 'The manner in which the lectures were given was very interesting, and the description given of the horrors of convict life can hardly fail, we would imagine, to do much good to the rising generation especially. He gave a briet history of his own course of life, commencing with the first step to crime, which is well calculated to serve as a warning tb, those who are only commencing a wicked career of life. Mr. King, it may be remembered, was sen tenced, m 1835, to fourteen years transpor- tation. In the year 1840 he made his escape, got to Améri...
